Gone Girl is a fantastic movie. Great soundtrack and David Finchery to the max. Ben Affleck is perfect for the role and all the female characters are fantastic. Especially the detective and the sister. The sister is particularly Dicey

I love my fanservice (unless it's a situation like Conception 2, where it's just there to distract from an otherwise boring or bad game) but I have to agree with Dice that it seems the people who work on jiggle physics have no real interest in real world physics. If anything, the better technology gets, the more unrealistic chest physics becomes.

That being said, with the graphic quality of today, it also looks just as awkward when a large-chested character is doing something extremely physical and there's no movement whatsoever. That's why I appreciate Aqua in KH: Birth by Sleep. She doesn't have two balls of soft mozzarella strapped to her chest, but when she's really fighting, there's at least an occasional hiccup.

I wonder if it would be too much work to make the game appeal to both groups. Make the timing crucial and hard but then have an option to disable or at least make it easier for people who think it is too hard. Sure it might be a bit extra work but not much more than games with multiple difficulties need to balance the different difficulties.

I honestly thought that was more of the plan with Escha and Logy.

Pointy polygon titties are hot I miss them, now I have to look at all these female characters and realize they would reject me instantly! On another note I have always wondered how much money and time japan has devoted to jiggle physics over the years. Do they just a have a company that researches boobs all day long, on a quest to surpass real boobs and bring a new era to the world of time I probably should of used more wisely!

I hate jiggle physics in games because I find more often than not it doesn't look real; or usually that just about anything will set the to jiggle like any sudden movement or when a character stops walking, or is simply just repositioning themselves (top box).  Furthermore, it seems to be the only feature that seems to move, not armor, not clothing, but breasts!

That said, and despite their monumental size, I think Dragon's Crown's Witch managed an amazing "jiggle" during her walk animation.  It still looks silly (mostly due to size), but I like that her breasts look almost fatty and sway with her movement more than they simply "bounce".

I can't speak for others, but a good beard is something I can appreciate. In fact, more RPG heroes should have facial hair. Less boys, more men!

Amen!  A way too young example, but I remember P3's Junpei "shocking me" for that reason; you really don't see facial hair in JRPGs that often.  I thought Alvin (ToX2) looked great with his, and Joel (TLOU) was a complete DILF with the facial scruff completing the package. xP

Hell if you can even call them boys most of them on the jrpg side look more female than some of the actual females. For example in suikoden 5 and tales of dawn I thought the main guys in those were females heck in suikoden 1 I thought Gremio was a female the entire games  it wasn't till I went back and played it again that I realized it was a male.

Egads, it's been too long since I played the game. Completely forgot about the history of the Northern Crater. That would be kind of an interesting spin on things if Meteor was some kind of transport device for Jenova and it's buddies that just happened to have the side effect of wiping out the current civilization.

Thanks I am pretty talented if there was a scene on this forums of someone punching me it would probably be the highlight of the forums like Lightning punching snow was for FF13.

Cait Sith is underrated. As I said earlier, his Instant Death slot ability kills everything, including the Weapons.

As far as I can tell regarding Rocket Town, given the architecture and layout of the town, it wouldn't be all that unbelievable to think Shinra picked a random field (Thousands of miles away from Midgar because... well, because Shinra I guess) to start construction of the rocket, and the town was just developed by the engineers and scientists around the project for convenience's sake.

Summons being a waste of time is like a Final Fantasy staple.

I forget... does the game ever even try to explain where the Black Materia came from, and more importantly how the Cetra knew what it was capable of. It's one of the few loose ends the game doesn't tie to the rest of the plot. I mean, how did Jenova/Sephiroth know it even existed? Sure, he probably "heard" about it while in the Lifestream, but that only further asks if only the Cetra were capable of hearing the planet, what is Jenova?

And, with those criteria, it would be a fun thought exercise to turn the question on it's head and ask, where did the Cetra come from?[/yellow]
Eh..? EH...!?

From FF Wiki:
Long ago, the Cetra were given two gifts from the Planet: the Black Materia, which had the power to destroy, and the White Materia, which had the power to protect. Being peaceful people, the Cetra embraced the power of the White Materia and rejected the Black, sealing it away by transforming it into a complex, booby-trapped, labyrinthine temple that became known as the Temple of the Ancients. This means these materia were created just like regular ass Materia through Mako concentration. The Cetra had the ability to guide the flow of the Planet's spiritual energy, this being the means by which they were able to cultivate life on the Planet's surface. The Crisis Core Complete Guide states the Cetra are said to have opened up Lifestream veins in the land, working to make the Planet fertile(this is probably why the Planet offered the black and white materia to the Ancients as a thank you of sorts).
(Sephiroth found out about the Black Materia through the Lifestream, the Lifestream contains souls from Ancients who know about the whole White/Black Materia shenanigans and unlike common misconception, the Ancients were actually natives to the Planet but they were a nomad tribe hence why they would be able to hear the cries of the planet , the interstellar travellers were the folk from Spira some time later, the translation made it seem like Cetra were aliens but it actually meant that they travelled the planet like Nomads,  According to Sephiroth, regular humans were Cetra who forsook their migratory nature to form permanent settlements millennia ago. See http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Cetra for more info on the Cetra).

"Many fans believe the Cetra are actually an alien race, which migrates from planet to planet, due to a line Sephiroth says during Cloud's flashback in the English version of the game: "This Planet originally belonged to the Cetra. Cetra was a itinerant race. They would migrate in, settle the Planet, then move on..." This line may be subject to translation issues and a failure to clarify the interchangeability between "land" and "planet".

Elsewhere, the game's script states through Aerith that the Cetra were born on the Planet of Final Fantasy VII: "The Cetra were born from the Planet, speak with the Planet, and unlock the Planet". The act of "returning to the Promised Land", Aerith also speaks of, is an allusion to the return to the Lifestream, it being the Promised Land of the Cetra. This concept is confirmed by the Hoshi wo Meguru Otome novella in the Final Fantasy VII Ultimania Omega Guide. "
Jenova is a non sentient alien and parasitic organism not unlike Lavos that arrived through a meteor that gave origins to the Northern Crater.
