oh my god i'm dying what is that dog even

This is what happens when you let anime princesses watch too much Super Robot anime. Suddenly she's strapping anything she can get her hands on to herself in an effort to 'combine' with them for a power boost/finisher.

Of course, by disk 3 she finds some wings to strap onto her back to pimp out her spell casting instead (at the expense of randomly pulling from her spell stock for the rest of the battle/until she eats dirt).


Code: [Select]
What's actually happening is that Riona here has repurposed her Bladed Chakram launcher into a Dog launcher. As to whether or not she strapped the Dog onto the Bladed Chakram or simply shoved the launcher up Angelo's ass is left to the viewer's imagination though. What doesn't make any dog-goddamn sense is how Riona is able to physically support Angelo's weight given that she looks like she's never even heard of a workout, let alone lifted a finger in the name of manual labor. She doesn't even look like she ever came into contact of a source of protein larger than a nut (at least until you give her the Devour command).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

^You saw that on GAF? I saw the same image in the import thread over there. Pretty much the main reason people post stuff like that is to keep finding reasons to shit on the games (which is adorable at this point if you ask me). That said, I'm gonna search for that dog once I get my copy.

Given that one of the bigger FF fans was taking issue with a general lack of polish that dog is clearly symptomatic of a larger problem than just being what an intern made while drunk.

Especially since it seems to be the one case where you can literally say that, yes, a Playstation 1 game really did have better graphics.

^I remember before XIII-2 came out some people were saying that the game had serious technical issues, but at least in my experience I found most of that just to be a bunch of noise. With LR now it seems that the lack of polish seems to be a real problem but I'm not sure how much people is exaggerating or not since I haven't seen much of the game outside of af few gameplay videos mostly showing the battle system, small bits in live streams and promotional material.

@Dice: That limit break in VIII always bothers me everytime I see it... like, who thought that it looked "cool" or attractive enough to go and put it in the game. Is just one of those things I just don't get how it end up happening.

I thought the cats in XIII-2 looked kinda... special, but that dog is something else. Why is there a dog anyway? Do we get to pet it? Kick it? Not that I would kick it, it looks miserable enough. Okay, I guess it does look happy, but I get the feeling that dog is so unaware of his surroundings, himself and life in general that he has no idea he should be miserable. That poor, poor happy dog.

Oh sorry-- I meant the Lighting Returns dog was slaying me. I'm well-versed in Rinoa's skulldoggery and hound-related cannoneering :D

On that note, I have to go laugh at that nightmare hound once more.

I feel weird saying that Lightning wearing Yuna's costume is better looking than Yuna will be in the HD version.

Speaking of FFX.  I love how silly and strange half of the NPCs look.

Here's something I never expected to find:

Final Fantasy XIII's Finale Explained!

Is a decent read if ever finished XIII. Though the part of the translation comparison while it makes a good point the English translation instead of missing the point of the original text (as I see it at least) it kind of changes the context of the original text but it leaves the original message mostly intact.

Then again the whole thing might be a shenanigan of the localization process.

I suspect that the aforeposted dog's owners can be located in Poorende Village here.

I like that you think it's possible.

Eh, a compliment to Aeolus' cleverness I suppose.

I'm in the group of folks that think SE puts too much focus into graphical quality over gameplay, but I am confused as to how LR can look worse than XIII and XIII-2. I mean, I haven't seen anything side-by-side so I won't judge it completely until I actually play it.

I wasn't trying to be mean, I actually giggled a bit. x)

On the bright side though... I don't think we ever hear Lightning talk as much as in this title.  Whereas FF13 and 13-2 were all about her involvement in cutscenes and cutscenes only, at least you hear quest involvement now too.

Dog Returns: Final Fantasy XIII-3.

Its like those random pedestrians tripping over themselves on that conveyor belt walkway in XIII-2 all over again.
