Today 01:50KrimzonStrikerThey really should though, and at least TWEWY got a reference in Kingdom Hearts so Square apparently hasn't forgotten about it, so you never know. True, true, I'm excited either way when said Odin Sphere Remake finally drops.
Eh, I thought it was okay for the most part, being a Warcraft fan probably enhances my perception of it though cause I squeed a few times seeing some very iconic characters re-imagined. And yeah, in a lot of ways the Warcraft universe IS kind of generic (while also helping to set that standard in the first place) though I'm still keen to see how this re-imagined version will work out. If they ever listen to fans they'll make an animated film finally, after all the praises for Blizzard's cinematics. Huh, send me a PM or something with some of the titles, I'm curious to learn more about their backstory if that's available. Yeah, though Legacy was a wild ride and I have the Starcraft Field Manual encyclopedia so I'm content so far, along with seeing what kind of story comes from the future DLC releases for Starcraft, so Zhan can take his time to get it right.
True that, so until otherwise let's bring the Persona discussion to a close.
Hah, that'd be fantastic to see but also possibly a bit too much, hopefully the direct import of the original LOGH will do and the remake manages to reconcile whatever extraneous things it needs to.
Mmhmm, speaking of which I should check in on Rebels now that Season 2 is a bit further along.
Alright, well moving on until next year's Comic-con does come around. I do have to check out the company that made those figures/props, it was some pretty impressive stuff.
Speaking of movie stuff though, you seen that Captain America: Civil War trailer yet? Hooh boy, that ones going to sweet, and something to fall back on if Batman v. Superman turns out to be a disaster
I am a little apprehensive as to where the story for Deus Ex will ultimately go though, part of me wishes it could deviate from the original storyline and provide a true alternate choice. Not surprised about the push back on the release date, disappointed but not surprised, but there'll be plenty to keep us occupied in the mean time. Oh really now? Maybe they'll FINALLY Import Valkyria Chronicles 3 after all, though I'm not getting my hopes up, and at least one fan had the decency to release an english translation patch even though it's not covering the DLC's. I am intrigued to see what new RPG they'll come up with though.
Cool, it's good to experiment to keep things fresh, especially something like the Witcher. Err, gameplay choice or story choice, cause if it's story choice just go with what you think that character would ultimately choose to do since it either one is apparently okay. Speaking of, have you had a chance to try out Tales of Zestiria yet?
Today 01:11KrimzonStrikerAlways are, well until the main game actually drops here in the U.S let's push BlazBlue to the side for now. Well, that's all you can do then, so put it out of your mind for now and try to enjoy the holidays in the meantime, I know I did this Thanksgiving
He'd be one of those unstoppable surprises, though how useful he'd be with a finess operation to capture Eren is debatable to say the least. Didn't they specifically have a fight between Reiner and Beast-man in order to determine the order of things, with them getting Eren first and then getting Annie later? I fully expect him to be given how much power he's demonstrated to have, from converting people to controlling Titans, etc.
Would have been nice but given how I didn't want to be weighed down by the first Build I can live with that. So, how far are you getting with the original Utawaremono anime while we're talking about it?
Unfortunately that just comes with the genre they're working with, anything not horror that has a highschool setting like this one unfortunately demand it. It's like asking why we have slapstick humor in the first place Dann, it's a waste of time more often then not but it's what entertains far too many people to keep them invested when once again we're dealing with a very standard highschool magical combat school setting. I'm glad you like it, I'm on and off with One-punch so comic-book format works for me right now, and I see why it has its following. I'll probably binge watch everything, Utawaremono, Cavalry, and One-Punch when Christmas break hits.
Yesterday 19:56KrimzonStrikerEh, it plays on a lot of human weaknesses, fear and greed being the primary ones. Guess we'll see how it ultimately works out, I expect a new director with potentially new policies once Azami is kicked out given how up in years Senzamon is getting. We'll know in a couple of more chapters now depending on how the matchup ends. Same with whether Erina can pull something off, though once again we'll have to see the final match result.
Pretty sure the condition is the same for everyone right now, being expelled or saving their club/dorm. Huh, well my prediction was off, but only by a little, it isn't a question of his skill but the amount of effort Eizan puts into cooking that holds him back, that's still a glaring weakness to be exploited though.
Well, in this case it looks like Soma went the other route I thought might be able to level the playing field with Eizan, insulting his pride to a point he feels compelled to compare their dishes, it still probably won't work though even if Soma's dish should technically win, Eizan will likely not admit it and go forward with disqualifying him anyway, but at least he'll have the chance to compete.
I'd certainly be up for that kind of approach, less being more being an apt saying in this case, lord knows a LOT of the mainstream series fell into that trap. Huh, well I'll check it out regardless though depressingly I think you might be right about the original ending route BONES would go, HOPEFULLY Academia manages to churn out enough for a 12 episode season by the time it comes out... Oh definitely, based on the reactions I saw at Comic-con alone for One-Punch man I fully expect it to get a break/second season.
Gonna integrate your previous RWBY post with this one
Agreed on it being the best one, episode 3 gave me some hope they can pick up a faster pace at least, even though it isn't quite as smooth yet in terms of flow and movement, but overall I thought it was adequate, provided that can keep this same quality from now on. Can't wait to see more interactions between Winter and Qrow as well, definitely feels like there's personally history to go along with their ideological differences.
I should hope so, the first chapter of the RWBY manga came out over there in Japan and it was certainly intriguing, with a very striking art style.
Well, the Huntsmen release for World of Remnant was certainly interesting, especially all that stuff regarding Atlas and how it seems to have taken the place of Mantle, any thoughts? I didn't say it was likely, only that it was a possibility until we got in-universe confirmation that this girl is indeed her mother. Yeah, here's hoping they explain what happened/what she and Yang talked about. Curious to see which other big name VA they'll bring in, I feel like I'm looking around corners waiting for Steve Blum to voice Taiyang or something Moving on until the game's release then, oh and I'll move my response to your Witcher comments in the last post.
Yesterday 14:26KrimzonStrikerWhich is good for me cause lore was usually always what drew me into games to begin with. Moving on.
I looked it up and the Third Route is called Freedom available and from what I understand it's probably the 'true' route ending that's supposed to be taken. I'm okay with it honestly, it's not unlike having choice variations like in other games such as Witcher, Mass Effect, etc, it just takes that to a deeper level in terms of game play and story variation. So long as there IS a true/canonical ending like the Freedom Route at some point I'd still be willing to play it.
Eh, I'm fine with that as well provided that special edition is still available during the price reduction phase.
Huh, wonder what Nintendo had to pay Square to finally get a piece of that pie. It's cool I guess though I wonder if that might not take away from Dissidia. Probably not, Smash is a very different game, which also leads me to wonder if they'll bring other FF characters in as well.
I just have to hope for the best that Fairy Tail at least manages to end well, I'll deal with everything else after that.
I'm not that disappointed with it, as of recent news reports it's going to be a 4 episode ONA, straight to online viewing and no television broadcast, and the character designs kind of remind me of Cowboy Beboop which is not a bad thing, should be interesting to see. If we're talking OYW then sure, it's why I've been clamoring for a 0081 adaptation. Should be soon enough I think given that they've already released profiles for said other Gundam models to appear in Orphans.
And as of episode 7 that pattern's basically continued unabated. Your prediction turned out to be true even if Mika eventually managed to even the playing field, Barbatos didn't escape unscathed,so now it HAS to find other machines to scavenge from for its unique frame. Both Todo AND Maruba whose been sent to the mines by Teiwaz thankfully. I'm also glad they can still get messages back and forth to let us know what's happening back on Mars, so all to the good.
True, though I also like how these recent episodes have also focused on Mika's development and attempts to overcome his inadequacies. Yeah, and Atra is for now providing that bedrock of stable support for characters like Kudelia now. It was also very cool to see Orga get some character development and that Naze took on that mentor like role, though on a side note I don't think every girl on that ship is part of his harem, given how long it took for him to come up with an answer about his female crewmen to the cast and that pilot Azee's reaction to Lafter's praise of Naze, or her abscence from the harem shot in the new/changed scene in the opening with Naze and his crew. Episode 8 looks interesting in terms of expanding on the Teiwaz group, while also adding to more Orga development/drama with that new female character in the previews, should be interesting to watch this Sunday.
It was always expected, regarding Sayla, given where she eventually ended up, and yeah about Amuro etc, though I hope that's the extent of his presence given I'd like to keep the focus on the Deikun children. Yeah, those past examples is what gives me hope they'll do that though that'll depend on how far the III Origin movie gets, should be fun to see based on new preview trailers anyway and I've always been curious about the Garma/Char relationship.
2015-11-24 05:30KrimzonStrikerSorry about the lack of response lately, pretty busy taking care of my place since my parents are on vacation, that and I'm currently scouring youtube trying to find all the little conversation scenes for Starcraft: Legacy of the Void single-player campaign. Will try to hopefully get in a response on Wednesday, or Friday-Saturday the latest, since nothing much happened in Shokugeki besides establishing Eizan and I want to head off the next RWBY/Gundam Orphans episodes coming out on Sunday so you can get a chance to respond and critique it first to add to your own comments.
EDIT: Arrgggh, I've been pretty exhausted Dann, need to catch up on some Z's tonight so I'm going to TRY and get everything in tomorrow, at the very least I'll shoot for covering our Shokugeki discussions after the spoilers/release are out.
2015-11-03 18:51KrimzonStrikerJust fyi, but I decided to consolidate these last two posts since they're so short.
Yeah, just take advantage of the lulls when you can regarding handhelds, short of a sequel to the World Ends With You most of the other titles can probably wait. Though I do want to ask which way you're leaning regarding the Odin Sphere remake while we're on the subject, Vita or HD Playstation version?
Yeah, that's pretty much how I follow those game universes now until I get that decent gaming PC I've been talking with you about, along with what's happening in Warcraft since I'm not going to ever do monthly payment MMO's. I would THINK that's looking a bit far ahead if they even make any movie sequels for Warcraft II and III, and honestly if they get that far I won't be surprised if cut it off there in one nice, clean trilogy. But again let's see how this first movie goes, I mean the first trailer is due to be revealed at Blizzcon this week Eh, now that the novel universes have been decanonized I'm less motivated to keep up with them, so if/when I get all the Heir to the Empire/Thrawn related stuff I'll be good. Regardless, as I said I'm super excited to see where Zahn can take Starcraft and what the future of the series will look like after Legacy of the Void wraps up that original storyline, given what he did in introducing Thrawn etc., so I have high hopes.
No you're right, I didn't hear about Persona until 3 showed up, but even then it was more of a cult hit I thought and more then one fans fumed regarding the ending, P4 basically made the series accessible/popularized with the overall public, so it'll be interesting to see what direction P5 takes us with the franchise.
And that's my fear for the LOGH import and why I'm not rushing my money out the door depending on which version they release. I'm hoping the LOGH remake manages to reconcile all those weird editing inserts, but only time will tell.
Oh, Vadar's fine, I'm just anxious regarding the overall storyline/direction is all.
Yeah, I'm not going to let this get me down, and given all the new game releases/announcements plus the new Gundam series I'm sure next Comic-Con will be jam packed with new events to make up for this year. If you mean these armor and model displays then yes, those were definitely the same ones.
Refining is what sequels are supposed to do anyway so it's good to see a game like Deus Ex follow through on that promise. Pretty much, the ultimate goal I think for games is to create a truly organic digital game world at some point and truly random/unique weather will be the first step towards that.
2015-11-03 18:23KrimzonStrikerYeah, BlazBlue lost a bit of charm after the DLC releases honestly, I know a lot of fan favorites came out and people appreciated those but at the same time it did feel too much too soon, especially with the starting lineup for ChronoPhantasma, I mean those three main characters didn't have much if any impact on the story aside from Azrael running a muck, but regardless there's nothing to be done about it right now so moving on. Wow, I'm glad to hear, let me know how the final results come, I'm wishing you all the best.
Suppose that's possible, just have to wait and see if anything new regarding their gear turns up or not I guess. Which is ironic given how the Colossal was always regarded as the big threat until recently, but at the same time makes sense given how unweildy fighting someone as big as him would be, still should be interesting to see how Bert involves himself anyway. Well, I thought I recalled a bunch of dirt falling off the regular titans heads, but I'll have to double check, regardless though them being buried fits better given Ape-man's example of being able to influence/freeze the Titans in place.
I suppose that's why I gravitate toward Try instead because it follows a more traditional/equal dynamic among the teammates. Pretty much my sentiment, that type of thing sudden transition doesn't feel real unless you see it in action, even a brief glimpse of them facing off would have helped in an epilogue or even a flashback in Try. Wikipedia says no, the Utawaremono games have never been localized, which isn't THAT surprising since the fall somewhere between serious strategy RPG and hentai romance visual novel, at least with the first game anyway.
Cool, cool, glad you like it in that capacity. Eh, ecchi comedy it's kind of standard at this point I think in order to attract an initial fanbase, espeically as you say with a very typical story world/story premise. But I think of the fanservice stuff as more of a hook then anything before taking over with those positive elements you mentioned and at least as you mentioned Chivalry skipped through the slapstick harem comedy rather fast. But moving on in any event, I also took some time to watch One-Punch Man, it's pretty cool even though I have no idea where the story is going at all which is one of those peeves of mine sometimes unfortunately.
2015-11-03 15:28KrimzonStrikerWeaker chefs in the overall big picture anyway, and a narrow definition of cooking since they would all basically cook the same kind of foods only Azami would approve of. Maybe a few more checks to prevent/allow students to work their way back up or even into the school might be in order, Dojima managed that fairly well for Megumi, but yeah, it brought out the best in a lot of kids too while also rightly punishing the stupid among them, and at the same time the REAL problem is that this will hamper innovation and diversity. Guess we'll know soon enough, I wouldn't mind seeing the other Alumni return and we could certainly use all hands on deck for this one.
And because Erina's there I'm not TOO worried about the events of chapter 141, it'd be too much of a lost opportunity for character development to lose the dorm now when she just got there, though I wonder what she wanted to say to Saki in that one panel, maybe she actually had an idea/solution to the bind Eizan's put them in but she's still scared about directly challenging her father.
I could see Akira maybe getting through this with his mastery of aroma, and if Soma can use what he learned from his battles with Akira, or even get his help for the Shokugeki it MIGHT work even if the judges don't eat, but that is a long shot. Really anything could happen, Dojima could show up and work around it, like I said before about Erina or even Satoshi might be able to exert some kind of Elite Ten authority, who the heck knows but that's what makes it so exciting. I think he can do pretty well but I also always thought out of all of them he was the weakest link skill wise, so we'll see if he actually manages to demonstrate how strong he is or whether his arrogance of having the judges in his pocket will obscure his actual talent level, should be a fun match regardless though.
Maybe in a few years sales will pick up, who knows honestly, though maybe this Jump Festa episode for Shokugeki coming out in November will give us an indication, we'll see I guess. Eh? Really? Man, that DID take a while, production studios can be real weird about these kind of things but at least they're getting FMP done at all, suppose that means there's hope for all the old series as long as interest in that remains.
Eh, let's give Mahouka/Irregular another year or so and we should have some idea, the light novel and some of its spin-off manga are finally being imported over here so it's not like there won't be stuff to tide fans over in the states in the mean time. Yeah, two episodes in with RWBY and I feel like they're still feeling their way through and/or saving the real budget effects for the big battles later but it's too early to rush to judgement on anything, so let's just enjoy and anticipate the direction of the plot right now anyway like seeing what the deal with Qrow and Winter is finally. I mean, the Raven Brandwen mystery seems like it's going to be awhile before we get any new info on that from the looks of it. And hey, at least the setting/environment shots look pretty gorgeous so far.
Yeah, she's probably busy after Halo 5 or something so this will do at least, I mean Ozpin did share the opening narration with her after all. True true, though Qrow and Taiyang don't look like they've changed all that much so I think it's still up in the air about Raven, I mean if she is Yang's mother and a Bird Fanus like I suspected then her spiky feather-like hair should really remain to indicate that. Jaune inherited his sword from his grandfather though, but yeah, it probably is her though again we'll still have to wait and see. Well, people did notice that look Yang gave Emerald and Mercury as they passed each other by in the arena, plus we have no context about their meeting like when it took place or whether it was in a dream or not, so who knows. Speaking of Mercury I mentioned that they got Yuri Lowenthal to voice him now, that's a serious upgrade and he seems well suited to the role. Oh, cool to hear that the manga will give us some back story, and yeah I read about the greenlight for Grimm Eclipse, should be exciting to see when it comes out.
2015-11-02 21:03KrimzonStrikerWell, it's popularity pretty much dictated its length, but like I said I see the light at the end of the tunnel so hopefully it ends well enough. Well be sure she does, Brotherhood is well worth a look even if she read the manga.
Well, as of the new announcement for Gundam Thunderbolt it seems like we're going back to the well of the One Year War, though I'm a bit surprised they chose this to be their newest full television adaptation for the U.C. Honestly I think they've come to the conclusion with the U.C that no conflict is ever going to measure up to the one between Zeon and the Federation which is why an F91 remake seems long odds. Eh, after the Axis Shock from Counterattack I wasn't that surprised by that light show. Yeah, I'm liking how grounded it feels, just good old basics of better armor and maneuverability right now, though I expect that to change once more Gundams are introduced to Orphans.
Episode 5 re-kicked things off in the new setting of space but next episode looks like it'll allow our character to settle in to the new situation, so good balance so far between plot and character development along with world building. Yeah, apparently you can just look at the opening and see the changes to Barbatos being done for that episode, it had its special gun cannon and new shoulder pieces. That is a concern, but I doubt that with Coral gone and Fareed now in charge that they'll resort to something like that so long as the remaining members of Tekkadan keep a low profile on Mars while the others are away to earth. And yeah, good riddance to Todo after he fell flat on his face, though I won't be surprised if he sticks around on the Gjallahorn ship to serve as comedic relief unfortunately. Yeah, he was cool, and I'm glad they're leaving him behind to look after the kids still left on earth like we discussed earlier.
I honestly think they're learning with Mika and won't go down the pacifist route of not killing at least, even if Mika himself begins to fight for causes bigger then himself. There's been 300 years of so-called peace already, and in many ways Orphans is depicting how the younger generation is crying out against its decadence and stagnation, so I'm not too worried about it. HOnestly there are two routes the series can go, either Kudelia succeeds and Mars begins to gain independence peacefully or she doesn't and Tekkadan takes the forefront in fighting for her to gain that independence, either way I don't think the generic argument against killing or violence in general will get in the way of this story which is clearly illustrating that sometimes you just have to fight for what you believe in/care about or get trampled otherwise by the 'peace' of an imbalanced governing system.
Edit: Ah, forgot to talk about the new Origins release. Nothing much to say other then it being solid character development but I'm a bit concerned by how much material they still have to cover with only two movies left. I'm of the opinion they're going to change that announcement and go with five movies at the very least, but we'll see.
