you can't have a discussion about dumb box art without phalanx



True. But I was hoping for a new thread to start before somebody posted it. This one's already derailed enough as is.


I thought the personality issues started with SO3 tbh. SO2 was colorful as all hell. 3 just be all brown and gray (AND A LITTLE FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY IF YOU REMEMBER THAT ONE EARLY SCENE WITH KURT AND THE JAILER. OHHHHHHHHHHH). Also the brown-n-gray realism of the enviro's mixed with the AM I KAWAII UGUU-ness of the faces was... jarring.

No comments on the mechanics or overall quality since I A) barely remember them and B) I was still in that GRIND THROUGH EVERYTHING AND JUST HAMMER ATTACK mode when it came out, but it was a very visually messy sort of game.

(Also I didn't like Sakuraba's compositions from that era at all. SO3 had this genericy buttrock thing going on, ToS was like internet MIDI hell...)

If it weren't for Cliff being a smarmy baller, the entire first half of SO3 would be insufferable due to all the shenanigans that game put you through. From having to talk to a village of Xenophobic Village Folk just to get back your 'marginally better' than a Steel Pipe default Sword, to that "OH MY GOD! KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!" VA job of Farleen (or whatever that Ninja Mage Chick #2's name was), to that stupid copper mine and its mine cart bullshit, to that moronic sideplot featuring 'dying from Anime Wasting' not-Sophie and her also chronically doomed boyfriend, and the only cheezing you can really do for that half is by selling off one of those stupid bunnies and buying a late game sword from that town you crash landed in and are immediately railroaded out of due to plot.

Thankfully once you get out of Disk 1 hell, you'll finally get more than your starting 3 party members (though chances are you probably lost Nel) and you can actually Item Creation (even if its dumb as hell in this game).

Indeed, that EverGrace music offended my sensibilities more than the Bean Boozled video I posted earlier... and that video was of
Code:
a kid projectile vomiting everywhere... twice... after eating a jelly bean that tasted like skunk spray.

Didn't watch Batman v Superman in the theaters since the trailers preceding release didn't inspire much hope. Watched this recently director's cut- sorry, "Ultimate Edition" though.

I actually liked it overall, but it's really flawed. All the scenes about the world questioning the legitimacy of Superman were the best parts of the movie for me, and its what I thought the whole movie would be when the teaser trailer came out for it a long while back. I think if the movie was just about that it would've been great.

The trailers that came out right before release told me exactly what my problems with it would be though- its overstuffed. That's not even considering the annoying Justice League franchising setup the movie did, but I also didn't think Doomsday needed to be in the movie.

One criticism I don't really agree with is Batman being "out of character" or whatever though. I thought the movie made it pretty clear this version of Batman has been worn down after years of fighting crime, thus his more ruthless approach towards criminals.
This is pretty much the general consensus regarding BvS. Too much crap, mostly excessive nonsense, and people arguing about Batman.

Phalanx is best art.

Doesn't matter how many times I see it, I laugh.  What were they thinking?

Derailing the current trend of conversation, I've advanced Star Ocean 5 a bit more (6 and a half hours in, WOWZER). As I progress, more and more I feel like there is no soul in this game. Characters talk quietly and without emotion aside from Emerson who would be just awesome if he wasn't just thrown in randomly to the party. The story is progressing by simply saying "I can't help you, try going here" which is ludicrously lazy, even by star ocean standards. The battle system, dear god the reason I love star ocean for years, is so...unfinished. Great concepts and awesome ideas riddled with such poor execution and lazy copy/paste jobs. The graphics for some things are quite enjoyable and lovely looking, but then you see the same 4 npcs everywhere and you get disgruntled at how godawful they look too. Everything about this game can be summed up in one phrase...


Great ideas, piss poor execution.


Also, the camera has become my worst enemy.
