I'm probably just jaded so I don't really get angry about any of it, just lots of entertainment. I'm more just confused that Donald Trump is being compared with Hillary Clinton as if they're anywhere in the same league, even with all her flaws. In terms of actual experience, Hillary Clinton's the most qualified candidate since like, Bush Sr. Speaks to how strong the left-right divide is in the country, or how poorly informed most people are (or both). Can't really stand Rubio, Jeb Bush or even Kasich myself but I'd at least be able to understand why Clinton would actually need to put a fight against them.

I was on a few plane trips so I got to watch a couple movies (and get some really low-quality sleep).

TMNT: Out of the Shadows - I thought it was a harmless kid's movie. It was like watching an extended episode of the cartoon so on that level I'd say it was a success. Still can't get used to Megan Fox being April O'Neil though.

The Jungle Book - This was a good kid's movie.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 - Never got around to watching this so it was nice to get the opportunity. This was a great kid's movie.

X-Men: Apocalypse - Pretty much what I expected. Apocalypse is just too much of a comic book character to take particularly seriously for me. Honestly I almost forgot I even watched this movie. Most comic book movies are just blending together into a huge mass for me these days.

Theory of Everything - I gotta meet my quota of artsy drama films so I can appear cultured. Fortunately for me, I thought this was a really good one.

Well, you can't accuse them overselling their game I guess.

Last Dream's probably a good example that so many people who loudly proclaim they value gameplay over anything else don't actually commit to that since they would mention it a lot more often (assuming they even know it exists) if that were the case. Last Dream has a ton of stuff people want out of an RPG but from what I've seen it uses nothing but RPGM default tiles and characters.

Newest trailer for the game reveals some more things they are doing differently this time. Aside from some really weird designs you wouldn't expect from Pokemon, it seems like they're removing the day/night cycle again to make the two versions take place at different times. Zygarde also has his own side-quest in here. Feels like there's going to be a lot to do this time.

Apparently they've also decided to respond to all the cries for a Pokemon Snap sequel by putting a picture-taking minigame in.

FFIV PSP: I'm already at the final dungeon of the game. I never realized how easy it is to break FFIV with Blink-makes a bunch of the bosses complete wusses.

Once again I'm not sure if to put this in amazing pictures or here, but I guess I'll try keeping the politics to this thread. Also following Dincrest's spirit of keeping things positive by presenting this bleak but delicious future for America.

Maybe I'll try Amalur again one of these days. The setting just didn't grab me and that's usually what I play WRPGs for- the comparison to Elder Scrolls is an interesting one since I know those games have terribad combat but the atmosphere and setting get me to stay, whereas Amalur has more interesting combat but I got bored with it after like, 2 hours.

Anyway I've been replaying FFIV for like the 10th time or whatever, in preparation in playing The After Years. Last time I tried this my PSP decided to make my save files disappear for no reason which killed my motivation. Hopefully it goes better this time. =P

I'm already up to Cecil becoming a Paladin. Always kind of weird to think how this felt like it was the end of a huge journey as a kid, and playing it as an adult I'm thinking how this feels like a lot happening within like 90 minutes of play.

IV was a bit easy for series veterans, but that means it might be better for newcomers, not to mention it has a lot of great interface changes which makes things a lot less annoying. If you're stuck between this and that piece of crap 3DS Langrisser, I think it's a no-brainer which to get.

V's already out in Japan though, so dunno if we'll be seeing that stateside anytime soon.

I'm Asian, so dairy was always a lost cause (but I drink milk and eat tons of ice cream anyway).

Getting to drink milk without feeling crappy is the real white privilege.

I haven't seen The Killing Joke, but the animation I saw in the trailers made the movie look really...low-effort, to say the least. The one I remember in particular was how in one of the trailers, Batman opens a door and the door opening had like, 3 frames of animation. Maybe that's a lot of hardcore nitpicking but I watch animated movies to see...animation.

I'm also not as surprised as I should be at the shoehorned love story because Bruce Timm was involved and he has some weird obsession with shipping Bruce Wayne and Barbara Gordon (also present in DCAU).

In other news, a family member took me to see Jason Bourne. Never saw the other ones, but based off this movie I'm not sure I ever should. It wasn't bad or anything, just totally forgettable. I always feel kinda bad for the stuntmen and CGI artists who spend their whole lives perfecting their skills and all that talent gets wasted in the service of completely nondescript movies which will be forgotten 5 minutes after you finish seeing them.

I kinda envy you guys who somehow just forget to eat because I'm guessing you don't have any weight problems as a result. I've gained like 5 pounds over the last month because eating good food is the only thing that makes life worthwhile. Not overweight yet, but I keep a eye on it. I was overweight starting halfway through elementary school and I didn't get my weight under control until a few years ago after I learned what amount sane, normal people eat (aka a lot less than I'd like).

So my desktop kept booting me out of my games and telling me my display drivers were crashing, then I started getting funny boxes on my screen and now I can't turn it on for more than a couple minutes before it explodes. I venture a guess that something's wrong with the sound card. Just one problem after another with this thing. At least I'll be back in the States for a bit soon, I'm a lot more comfortable buying my tech stuff back home.

A new Pokemon again, and it probably has the most hilariously awesome name of any Pokemon.

The Pokemon episode today had the conclusion of the latest Pokemon League. The fallout from angry Japanese netizens has been infinitely more entertaining than the episode itself. Just as an example, in typical angry internet mob fashion a bunch of them flooded TVTokyo's youtube channel preview for the next episode with thumbs downs (and the extra angry ones did it for videos unrelated to Pokemon of course).

I love it.
44  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: August 13, 2016, 11:12:51 AM
I saw The BFG.

It was alright.
Maybe it's just the nostalgia but I feel like a lot of kid's movies can't really hit the right emotions for me anymore. I always preferred darker things like The Neverending Story or Don Bluth movies to the "brighter" Disney movies as a kid though. Well, then again, some of the early Disney movies had crazy shit in them too.

The supposed legitimate starter evo leak has Rowlet turning into an Archer which shoots leaf-arrows, Litten becoming a Heel Wrestler (so probably Fire/Dark), and Popplio having a Siren motif (with long flowing hair to make furries happy). The Litten evo got some people worked up because some people don't like the somewhat common trend of fire starters ending up with some kind of fighter motif (Blaziken, Infernape, and Emboar). Personally I never minded it too much, but I'm not crazy about the leaked Litten evo- personally I imagined it getting a more nimble-looking evo. Still not 100% sure on if that leak's actually legitimate though, but it seems pretty likely since one of the sketches includes a character who looks almost identical to Mallow, and the leak was floating around the internet months before she was revealed.

Anyway another batch a new Pokemon, and they're all pretty weird, for better or worse. Also intro to Team Skull, who seems to have a punk theme going on.


Not in the video is Bewear's pre-evolution and a sand castle Pokemon. Mixed bag on this batch for me. Not crazy about the Sand Castle personally, but I love the idea behind the "school of fish" Pokemon. Alola Meowth is almost identical to normal Meowth and Alola Raichu is...weird.
