Yesterday 21:27Dann of ThursdayNo problem. Yeah, that probably won't last too long unless we get flashbacks or something. That seems a large part of it from what I've read about it since there are still a lot of people who haven't upgraded. And it has only been a year, though I'm curious just how long we might see this sort of thing for. I could see it down the line perhaps depending on how the game does sales wise and how much extra content they have for it. Hadn't thought of a ME1 like situation, though it might also depend on if they determine there is a market for remaking it up for current consoles. I honestly haven't played much of it yet beyond the opening level as I've been playing Xillia 2. Decided I didn't want to have too many games going at the same time. Went ahead and did so. My sisters will likely get a kick out of watching me play it and one of them played RE4 as well. I do, but I don't know much about that game other than it being some big multiplayer game so I wasn't sure. Will probably have to take another look at it. I tend to have done it for those too, but feel Inquisition warrants it more given the scale as you mentioned. I was really happy to read that as well. Have they? I don't recall anything in particular that was pushing it, but then I haven't watched every video for the game so I may have missed something. Yeah, and it would feel a bit annoying to have to redo the whole game just to experience it on that second time.
Pretty much. Oh, what if we could do that in the game as an option? I'm not sure why it would be included, but it'd be neat to see.
Yeah, I really hope they aren't that desperate or stupid to waste resources on such a thing. It's weird to think we're actually making some progress in that area. Yeah, I'd completely forgotten about Jump Festa and I think they've shown KH trailers in the past there as well. Also of note is that Type-0 HD will apparently be part of Sony's TGS conference. It'd be neat if they perhaps included on the disc a demo for XV when that game releases. Could help sell more units and appease those waiting.
I know, it's things like that which confuse the hell out of me. Well, perhaps we'll get something by the end of the year in any case. Not so much anymore thankfully, and what dreams I do have I either don't remember all that clearly or aren't too bad.
Now's the time to start giving out some facts, which undoubtedly will leave us with more questions than answers. Hopefully so and it would perhaps be a potential good move on their part to put her up front as it could potentially be used to make them look good. Actually, that could work quite well on the Military's end as well by perhaps framing her as someone that fought for the people despite her background.
Yesterday 20:16Dann of ThursdaySpeaking of, I do hope we get a trailer for that soon, though I suppose we might not see anything till next year. Unless the Guardians home release has some sort of teaser. True, it's just a matter of making it fit. I'm a bit confused still why it needed to be stretched so much, but it is what it is at this point. I was under the impression that he wasn't on good terms with Warner Bros. so I'm not sure on the chances of that, but it might be possible. Well, Tolkien never really finished with Middle Earth as it seemed to be something he was always working on. I wonder if he ever would have considered it finished actually. I really do wonder what his overall thoughts on these films would have been given the changes.
I could see her doing that huffy thing and claiming luck, but that sort of things gets old. Yeah, I guess the most surprised I can recall was when Souma proposed his terms. Good point, he could very well view it as some desperation tactic, which may have happened in the past with his other opponents. Maybe to create a stew that has a lot of variety, but doesn't fill you up so fast you don't finish it? At least we'll be finishing this up relatively soon and then we can move on to the much less certain match.
Given what's going on it'd make sense if that's what we cover this time around. It'd be the preferable outcome and if they went the other route they'd be stretching this out way too long. Depends on how exactly Ironwood takes what's going on (as well as what he was doing there), but that'd be a good thing to see since it feels like there is more that can be done with her arc. She did make it rather apparent while talking to him, but it will probably take a bit longer before anything formal. Yes, I suppose it should have been suspected, but it still felt slightly jarring. Hmm, yes sabotage does seem the most likely answer and I'm curious to see what the exact effects will be aside from the likely inability to communicate among one another. I did see her use the canisters, but still feel the clothes had come factor to it all. Gah, that rule always seems silly when there are other identifiable features to look out for. Given this feels like a midway point I'd guess that next episode will be setup for the next half with a few fights thrown in. Could also be nice to air them in a fashion leading up the the Book 4 premiere. Yes, so long as the general quality stays and improves we should hopefully be fine. Agreed.
2014-09-13 11:00Dann of ThursdayApologies on the delay.
I really have no clue what more they can really do with the plot in those games since there really isn't much left in the way of connections to the original anymore. It's a shame seeing all these franchises go downhill or vanish, but that's what happens when you churn out sequels without new properties to make up for it. More or less and I don't recall us ever getting much on the Rangers either. That's the general impression I'd been getting to the point I don't quite get why they didn't simply just have it be a next gen game if the last gen version is going to be inferior. I was referring more towards Shadow of Mordor than Inquisition with the waiting. With Inquisition, I'm not really sure if they will do a trilogy box set since Inquisition is on next gen too and I don't really see them doing releases of the first two to those, though I guess it's possible they'll do so just for the last gen. I've also got pretty much the rest of my games for the year paid off since I took advantage of some trade deals to clean house a bit. I preordered that new Call of Duty on a whim, but am probably going to cancel and moves the funds to something else though I'm not sure what. Been considering Evil Within since it looks and sounds good, though then we come to our discussion of horror games. I'm getting the strategy guide as well since I usually do with RPGs just to keep track of everything. I think the plan is to take it beyond just the consummation scenes and have it actually have stuff beyond that which is substantial in some way. Ah, didn't think of that. Tread lightly then if he shows up maybe? Ah, I understand and hopefully there's more depth to her to make it interesting. It would be rather insulting to just throw it in there like that, though it'd be interesting if they had DLC that featured the romance and allowed it to then be available on the new game from the start. That might be weird though. And irritating.
More variance with multiplayer is always a plus in my view since it is dominated by shooters as you point out. Alright. Maybe some sort of time lapse video to show how it can go from the broken down version to a fully outfitted one? I think that could be a cool way to demonstrate it.
And now I'm seeing weird rumors for some sort of XIII HD trilogy, which better not happen. We'll have full body VR or something crazy maybe Saw someone also point out that there's Jump Festa in December, which I guess would be our last chance for new info this year if nothing shows up at TGS.
Just cultural differences maybe on what they find more agreeable and whatnot. I feel they're a bit more lax about things like fanservice in comparison to over here. Maybe the weird examples are people trying break out of it a bit. And if they have anything hinting towards what's happening there will be all the speculation. They can get pretty damn weird at times, that's for sure. I've had some real weird ones in the past that I remember bits of, but the horror ones seemed a lot more common. And they'd spring up from the weirdest places too.
It's definitely a good chance to move forward, though now I imagine we can focus on what the plans are with Eren and Historia. Yeah, it'd be a waste I think unless they have some really great argument for all this, which I rather doubt.
2014-09-12 00:51Dann of ThursdayAh, that's true and I'd rather not have that story line either be a movie. Apparently there were indications of Legolas and Tauriel originally having been meant to be in the first movie since there was merchandise for them and Mirkwood released when the first movie came out. I think the whole trilogy thing is done so much because you can use it to fit the general structure found in narrative of a beginning, middle, and end but it does get tiresome when done needlessly. I don't believe Tolkien ever finished that version or had any part of it released. It was simply noted that at one point he had worked on one. A lot of what's found in these movies is taken from the Appendices from Lord of the Rings which detailed a lot of history.
I could also see her rationalizing it based on how Subaru isn't exactly a normal chef by any means, but some measure of respect could be shown even if she'd be loathe to ever admit it. Yes, looks like he went off the wall with the meat and the fact he managed to surprise Subaru leads to me think he may have turned this match from not so much being a copycat one as more of an actual battle between them even if Subaru is still trying to mimic him in a way. Of course, Subaru could always have somehow planned even this, but I like the idea of just going too far even for him. And it seems Mitsuru did help Subaru out if completely unintentionally and to show just how far Subaru goes with his info gathering. I'm not surprised in the least that he has that kind of thing going though his attitude seems to be a kind of turn off unsurprisingly.
Edit: Looking at a raw, I'm not so certain Subaru is all that surprised. So perhaps this isn't quite over yet, which I guess would make sense since they'd want to keep some suspense to it all.
So episode seemed pretty good with some nice things to leave off on since next week is a break. Some seemingly good resolutions to a few things like some answers on the stuff with Weiss and Neptune, which ended up being being rather funny and giving a little bit more depth to Neptune. I am slightly worried that Neptune pointing out it was Jaune could lead to her liking him or something, but hopefully it just leads to her perhaps treating him better than she has. I thought that shot of Penny dancing was funny and cute and it was nice to see one of her guards dancing with her later. Not completely clear where we are in Jaune and Phyrra's relationship, but it certainly seems to be a good place. The very well choreographed group dance out of nowhere was odd, but fun. The stuff with Cinder was definitely interesting and it looks like she uploaded something into the system though what seems hard to say. Something to bring down defenses or perhaps a program that can get them any info they need? Makes me wonder if Weiss getting those classified documents from her family company could come back to bite her. And that Dust clothing is very impressive indeed from the ability to change it's appearance as needed to apparently allowing her to store Dust formed weapons that can take a variety of forms. I hope Ruby is able to notice the similarities to her first fight and realize the one who was covering Roman that time was her. I'd imagine that would be next on the list of activities unless we go into that mission with the team. We'll just have to see I suppose, nothing much to do on our part since it's all in their hands. It'd be a good opportunity to do so and would be a bit odd of them to just stop at the point the online format took over. Didn't think we'd really be seeing the end of all this by the end of the year.
Sorry on the delay by the way. I'll have the second part tomorrow. Long work week this week.
2014-09-10 00:36Dann of ThursdayWell, they're doing some stuff with RE, but that's gone in a weird direction. Of course, the only one I ever really played was RE4 so I'm probably not one to talk. I have no idea if they're ever going to do anything with DMC, which is a real shame honestly. Part of it has to do with LotR being one of those "sacred" works that people easily get antsy about as well as there not being that large of a gap that they're working with. Weird thing too with how the PS3/360 versions got delayed till November on the same day Inquisition comes out. Also read that they're not quite as expansive with the Nemesis system in those either, which is a bit of a shame for those going with that version of the game. Been wondering about holding off on it lately and perhaps waiting for some "complete" version of the game with all that season pass content since WB did that for pretty much every Batman game. I get it, and thank you. Curious then as to what determines who gets to be a potential LI and who is just a regular companion. Based on what I read they do seem to be going for that this time around so hopefully they implemented it well. Maybe they just went their separate ways for whatever reason though being dead given the state of things is perfectly likely too. Makes me a bit curious what Josephine perhaps has to her to make her unique in comparison. It would suck if they put it in that way and it was half-assed.
I guess it depends on where they go with their projects from here since we don't really know what sorts of features are in that new ME or whatever it is that new IP will end up being. That could have been interesting since they could have come up with some possibly unique mechanics that could be used for them. Wonder if it comes down to favoritism or something. Oh, that's nice and the whole thing with the throne is very cool.
SE seems to be having a lot riding on this game at any rate, even if that probably wasn't envisioned when the game was first revealed. True, it's hard to imagine the future too much when you don't seem to be anywhere close to having what you'd use to base it on yet. Hopefully so, though things seem to change and shift so that I wonder what the scene will be like when we're near the end of this generation.
Yeah, their shows seem to run all over at times with something like Hellsing and then something like that Ore no Imouto. Sometimes it's just luck and there are rather popular manga that are quite dark as well as being popular, though all the one's I think of tend to have authors who take rather large breaks. Curious what sort of format they'll take for those, though I imagine the first will have barely anything in it other than an announcement. Yeah, though I can think of so many cases where they left off and then never returned to finish it. I'm rather the same way in many cases and seeing someone freak out at things I would can make it all rather funny. Probably never helped that I always gravitated toward nightmares as a child and had way too many of those fake wake up ones where everything is fine and then something is dragging you down the stairs.
Saw some images and a general summary. Nice gambit on their part and a good way to display to many exactly why the people high up can't be trusted to make the best decisions for everyone involved. Not sure what's going on with Eren and Historia though. He's all chained up on some weird alter or something. And I really hope Historia didn't some how get convinced to join their side or something to that effect.
2014-09-09 23:05Dann of ThursdayWell, they recently announced they have a title and script as well as that it would shake up the MCU. Perhaps they're going Death of Captain America? That is a good point and works better if it's just a minor cameo or something. I don't know how much could really be cut myself, though if they cut out all the added stuff taken from the other materials that probably could have had this go in 2 movies. It always reminds me how Tolkien at one point actually went back to to a redone version of the Hobbit that was more of a prequel to the LotR, but stopped when someone told him that while it was good it wasn't the Hobbit anymore.
I could definitely see him thanking her for the advice since it did seem to act as the trigger. At the same time, that feels like the sort of trait that Subaru would pick up on now that I think on it more, which could serve to allow him to counter even more. Basically whoever can keep that one step ahead then? Or Souma could always go for making something terrible which leads to Subaru inadvertently making something even more terrible, but the judges probably wouldn't stand for that. If it goes a route like that I could see the preparation aspect going two more chapters at least if they really want to go into it all, though the actual matches have generally gone at a good pace.
I can understand why since she was an early opponent even if Ruby didn't realize and they've already established a few rivalries in both the show and implying some in the opening. It'd be funny if we're overanalyzing this now that I think on it. Yeah, that is one of the things I really hope goes somewhere next episode if at least to really push this whole thing forward so we don't dwell on it the whole season. Oh no, we definitely don't want that. I was sort of thinking of something in that vein as it could even act as a trigger towards him showing off his semblance or at least getting close to it. And I need my tournament so we can have some fun match-ups (I rather like tournaments). I think in some ways it could, but might also amount to people being more frustrated with what the creators did with him rather than Mako himself. Might depend on how successful that model proved when they switched over, but we'll see eventually in any case.
2014-09-07 15:28Dann of ThursdayAh, gotcha. Yes, that's always an option. Another one to look forward to in any case. Curious what that new fighting game Capcom has in the works could be and they need something big since I don't believe they've had much success the last couple years aside from Monster Hunter. There's plenty of that to look forward to, which is always good. Hopefully so along with getting a good tone for it all. Perhaps they have something beyond that Titan project in the works then to keep things going, but it might be a bit before we learn about any of it. Given that it's a game in the Lord of the Rings world, there's always going to be griping about the lore. Just needs to be counterbalanced with enough interest and in forums and such I've generally seen a lot of interest as time has gone on and we've seen more. The reveal about the wraith for instance actually got a lot of interest from what I saw. And there are enough big threats to have to worry about him too pulling something big. I've looked over things a few times in the last two months but haven't done so as of late due to being busy with other stuff not to mention that it's still a few months off. Maybe she turns and becomes a boss later? Maybe they just got lazy or didn't have a writer who wanted to do anything with her. Perhaps so and at least from their descriptions there's a bit more to the romances this time beyond a few cutscenes and some undressing. Perhaps he'll get brought up during conversations with Cassandra if there's a point where she discusses her past. She's the one I'm the most curious about at the moment, but we'll see how things go in the end. Maybe they'll have her as an option next time or something, though I guess that'd be a little late.
Well, Blizzard has always been doing PvP stuff for a good while longer whereas multiplayer aspects are more of a new thing with Bioware even with TOR and ME3 so perhaps they just need a bit more time. Given the approach here, perhaps they also want to have it have some ties to the story even if it's just a small one. I'm rather curious how long this aspect was in the works in comparison to the main game myself since it was more recent than that could explain if the characters are a bit ho-hum if not really make it a good thing either way. Yes, there is hopefully a bit of variety so everyone can have their own unique sort of fortress rather than it simply being a matter of what color drapes one went with.
It's not so much that as that they had incredibly unrealistic sales expectations for a reboot that made it so even though it did well, it wasn't well enough. It is and kind of amazing at how much has happened as well. I'm also curious if SE has any sort of plan going after XV and KHIII that would actually work out since the whole thing with the XIII series didn't seem to be all that successful in the long run from what I saw. Hopefully so, but other companies still seem to be falling, which is a shame.
I've always been a bit confused on how they operate in that sense since they do allow some really scandalous stuff on for regular TV and other times cover it up completely and it's the same with violence. I remember Bleach back in the day being really bloody, but near the end they had a lot of really weird censoring going on with little blood and such. It'll definitely be cool to see them depicted on screen and I'm especially curious how they'll do the Beast Titan. In those cases it's definitely nice to have some form of closure rather than just leaving it off abruptly unfinished. Reaction videos can often be great. I've always gotten a kick out of seeing LPs of scary games or movies for instance.
2014-09-07 14:41Dann of ThursdayWell, they have him signed on for more so I'm sure we'll see him again before long. True, having a bit more beyond that would be nice. That and a need to keep things as fresh as possible so that audiences don't get bored if the same plots keep showing up. It was to be expected but even then some trimming here and there wouldn't have hurt.
It'd be silly if she did, though kind of funny if that was all it took. I don't know, I still don't think much progress is going to be made from this and don't expect anything to really happen until they have a match at some point. I'm not sure if just switching up how he does things is all it'll take to win this since it's always possible Subaru could predict even what he'd do for an alternate method, though it seems the most likely course for success. Curious if we'll see either of the dishes being given to the judges next chapter or if it'll be more mind games and such. Given he's been facing and losing to his father all those years and their general philosophy, it's to be expected.
It was I suppose, though ultimately I'm not sure how it's going to matter. I rather hope they don't go for something like that. Maybe it was televised somehow or something, but it does imply he's been somewhat aware of her for some time. I guess we'll see from here where it all goes, but hopefully it wraps up quickly so we can just move on from it. She does seem upbeat and if she had been rejected she doesn't quite seem the type to take it well so perhaps he's just late. Yes, it's definitely possible she'll use it as a cover to accomplish some less overt goal that'll lead to something later on, though if Phyrra goes to the roof then she would present a nice target if the goal is taking out potential threats. Yes, hopefully she and Jaune can actually get somewhere with all of this finally. We're still supposed to have some big competition between the schools too and we haven't really seen much of that so far. I doubt they'll have him end in a bad place so it likely won't be all that bad. We'll see. And the scheduling could also be different if they stick with this online model.
2014-09-05 18:33Dann of ThursdayEh, I can't ever see myself doing so for something like that. I don't really ever do microtransactions in any form. Only DLC usually and even then I tend to be choosy. That it is. I think it's definitely a great way to sort of beta test in a sense out in the open with the crowd who will likely be really into it. I think there's some place some ways from my college that had it, but I can't quite remember where anymore. Watched a trailer and it seems a fairly solid fighter and I can definitely see it's from the people who did Melty Blood since I have seen video of that one before. They're definitely being as vague as possible about P5 at the moment, though who knows just how far in development it is at this point. I just hope they update the battle system a bit and throw in some new demons. I'm definitely with you on that note since while I liked it, P3 was just such a downer in comparison to P4. That one managed to balance the darkness with the lighter moments quite well. I like Diablo, but I'm not sure where they'd go from here with it. Yeah, a lot of the hands on and talk about it from those that tried it was pretty positive and that bit about using the brands is a nice touch. True, unless they try to make him a credible threat like he goes to Sauron or something. I never finished DA2 and there's some stuff I'd like to change with my Origins save, so there's a number of things I want to try out and toy with. Hmm, surprising a bit and it seems like female characters have way more options than guys, which is also a bit odd. Unless they ignore him entirely or something, which could work too even if it'd be a bit lazy since they went to the trouble of making the character. I'll probably pick it up at launch since I'm trying to time things with releases enough to get through most of everything at a good rate and I'll be a bit empty without it.
Maybe they'll release some special DLC by that point to reinvigorate things a bit. Well, there don't seem to be too many examples of expansions like they used to be at this point. I'm fine I guess with what we have though hopefully those are well written and compelling. There was some info on the Skyhold, which was nice to hear about and I look forward to fixing the place up.
Well, Tabata seemed to indicate that SE is putting a lot on this being a success, which could be a problem to a degree given that in the past their expectations have been a bit much like that whole thing with Tomb Raider. Yes, it's taking into account the initial announcement, which could be considered unfair, but it's also interesting to see what other games series got made in all that time. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=888137 Some of it is typical of releases like this since things eventually wind down and unless another major project is in the works you just don't need all those people. I have generally seen a lot of companies making postings that they're hiring whenever this happens, which is nice at least.
Not a problem.
I'd be extremely surprised if there was any censoring in the final release unless the company in Japan were the ones that did it. Yeah, they played all that pretty well especially the fakeout with Eren. That's always better I think, though there may be times where the author hasn't decided on an ending for them to use. I have seen a few cases where when a manga finished and people actually liked the version the anime did a bit more, but those are rare. It is always funny seeing people reacting to things we've seen months or years ago by the time they get to it.
