I've been playing the DLC, and apart from some boss fights that seemed near-impossible without summons, I'd been really enjoying it up until Iron Passage. This area is a real slog, small corridors crammed with large groups of annoying enemies. At this rate, I'm probably going to end whittling the enemies down by killing them so many times they de-spawn, since I'm barely making any progress.

I think the only question, in light of Dincrest's recent decisions, is who's gonna be RPGFan's Token Black Guitartist NOW?

If you're talking console games maybe (though I'm a weirdo who really liked XII), but S-E has had several good portable games over the last couple generations of handhelds.

Same here.
If we're talking about JRPGs, I expect much more out of Atlus and even Bamco than SE now.

Square and consequently Square Enix is like that uber-popular band you loved since the first album, but their second album had a crazy popular top 40's tune and now you don't even want to count yourself amongst the fanbase openly because of what it could falsely indicate about your taste and sensibility. And of course you hate that top 40's song and really only now appreciate the band for helping mainstream a sound that once resonated with you.

^^ That is how I feel about Square at least.

If I said I loved Square, what I would truly be saying is that I loved SoM, and what they managed to get on the shelf of my local blockbuster back in the early 90's. I respect the fact that were it not for them I would not have discovered my primary love in terms of media, across the board, until much later in life.

Sadly, if I do indeed say I love Square amongst most anyone at present its immediately assumed I am Kingdom Hearts/FF7/FF10 fan. It is like saying I love early nineties rock so people just assume I'm a pearl jam fan. These assumptions fall a fair distance from the truth in my case.

I am unashamed of being a fanboy of FF IV, V, VI, IX, and XIII.  Also Chrono Cross. I REALLY REALLY enjoyed Chrono Trigger, SoM, Live a Live, Super Mario RPG, FFTactics (both versions), Xenogears, Parasite Eve and...ok just listing this out right now kind of just proved your point for you (and made me re-evaluate some thngs on my end).  Other than the much hated XIII (and to a much lesser extent XII) I haven't played a Square game I was truly immersed into since... uh....the PSX??? Holy...shit...

edit: I guess I'd realized a while ago that Atlus had supplanted Square as my go-to developer, but it hadn't occurred to me until now how much of my own reverence for them was based off nostalgia.

Who remembers that old animated sitcom The Critic?  I liken Aeolus to Jay Sherman. 

Dammit guys. I just got this avatar (+ associated texts) and now you're making me want to get a Jay Sherman one. At least wait until Smash Bros For WiiU comes out.

Love Live - Let Us Sing Together

Log in tonight.

It's Eri's birthday! +5 Love Gems
We're sorry for the extended maintenance +3 Love Gems

ヽ(^。^)丿

After this event, I can roll honor for my third time with this.
(Also, gratz Dincrest on your SR)

Thanks, man.  That was quite the surprise to stumble upon.  I'm getting so many of the main characters (who have bonus powers and stuff) that my normals are getting phased out.  This is too bad, because I like several normals- both in looks and in their personality profiles when I idol-ize them and max out bonds.  

I LOVED the previous event with the 4-way vs battles.  That was hella fun.

The Purge - For 12 hours a year, all violent crime, including murder, is legal.
Not bad. Interesting idea/plot. Pretty short film overall, but then it's only supposed to take place over 12 hours. Kinda lame how the last 10 minutes or so of the film are given away VERY early on. Saw it coming a mile away.
The long-haired crazy kid definitely needed more screen time. Don't want to say too much else about the plot, in case there are some who have yet to see it. With a film like this, it's too easy to say too much.
I'd say if you are a fan of this type of film, it's worth a watch. It doesn't do anything amazing or groundbreaking, though.



Yeah, I watched The Purge recently as well. It wasn't that great of a movie, due to some contrived sequences. It was still a decent home invasion flik, though
Code:
Why the hell would the kid have the code?! Has nothing like this ever happened before in all the years the purge has been happening? Hard to believe. Then we have the boyfriend situation. He wants to kill the girls dad just because he doesn't want her to date creepy older guys? That's nuts.
The nutjob "kids" in the movie that invade their home: How are they able to lead normal lives the rest of the year? You can't be that crazy one night, and be an upstanding citizen the next 364. No way.
The movie was pretty disturbing from a home invasion standpoint. And just thinking about something like The Purge actually happening makes for an interesting conversation. I think most people wouldn't participate at all. But how many nutters are out there that actually would? I don't really know, but it's scares that there are those that would.
I actually DO want to see Anarchy, just to see the street viewpoint of it all.

Cockneys vs Zombies

My girlfriend and I decided to play this on mute during our housewarming party last weekend.

A good 20 minutes of it takes place in an old folks home.  It made for a great conversation starter.

Here is everything else you need to know about this wonderfully stupid.



Tremendous

We seem to have Scarlett playing an alien impersonating a human, and going after men for some unexplained reason. This is enveloped by some beautiful scenery, and very moody atmosphere, which do nothing to save it from the lack of story. I simply didn't care about anything happening on screen.

Sounds oddly familiar...
