2014-08-24 10:11Dann of ThursdayI sometimes forget just how many shops and whatnot are present at these. I could have sworn this whole arc ended on some kind of cliffhanger in the novels, but not sure how they'll go with that since there were also a lot of other stories including one that focused on Asuna. It'd definitely be a good way to go with it and could perhaps pop up as a background storyline later on or something. It is always neat to see him summon something truly insane to show just how useful an ability talking to sea creatures is. Hmm, I'd say Wonder Woman could also fit in with that given her background and such, but Aquaman too has that quality that sets him apart. Reading on it apparently he is a major character for the whole show so maybe they'll parallel his growth with Gordan's or something like that. That's the biggest thing I suppose.
Neither will I. Indeed, the chapter gives the impression she wasn't all that mad she lost either, but it will be something to watch for in how Hisako improves. The fact she considers what she reads shameless also drives home just how sheltered she is and it looks like she may be doing this for Souma in exchange for the last volume, which could also be a way to elicit her help later on. Oh man, something like that could completely break his concentration if it were to be revealed in the course of the Shokugeki.
Yes, especially since they hadn't given us the info before and it also seems likely to feed into future events. Curious what the next ones will be though I'd imagine something about the various countries might be in store. That definitely seems a possibility and perhaps there's a flaw there that can be exploited by the students. Yeah, I'm not sure exactly what the advantages would be either, but then we haven't exactly been told what dust clothing bestows in that area. I remember it being a bit annoying, but that midseason finale was a pretty decent place to stop at I thought. Yeah, no one in the main cast died at least at least though it was hard watching her be so down. It's actually what I'd hoped season one would do with her losing access to her bending before Aang just gave it back and seems rooted in some of the same areas of her self-confidence and place in the world. I was a bit annoyed with it since there wasn't much in the way of foreshadowing or explanation regarding lavabending unlike other instances in the past like metalbending. Granted I've seen someone point out that lavabending doesn't use the same kind of motions regular bending does, but seems to have something in common with waterbending which Bolin has shown instances of integrating with his style. Hopefully he gets more to do since it didn't feel like he had much focus, though it didn't bother me too much since Bolin did need some time on him. Me neither, but I definitely think they're still around. That captain who rescued Tonraq is incredibly suspicious to me for one. It was a beautiful scene and helped not make things quite so depressing.
Hopefully yes, though we don't know much about what sort of systems will be in place for that one. Sort of like a minigame that way, which could be fun. Hell they could probably spin it into one of those mobile games that integrate with the main game, though actually having it in the game itself would be preferable. Yeah, it definitely looks like a compelling one at that, though 4 actually was alright if not the strongest on the storytelling front. That Rogue game has an interesting premise as well I thought with being an Assassin turned Templar for the main character. Yeah, and hopefully we'll get some announcements on what might be brought unless they want to surprise us. It'd certainly do a lot to bring up a bit of confidence in the title and make up a bit for all the silence. It could even be a way to perhaps introduce new races if they wanted as well. That and Old Republic not exactly being a runaway success last I checked along with this other project seeming to make up for it. True, they can up the insanity however they want now after this sort of twist. I don't get it either really since it's understandable that there will be bugs since that's one of the points of a beta. Even a video sort of going over the system would be nice. Yeah, it always has this weird uncanny look when you combine it with that and I've been hoping for a while they might improve on that aspect. True, the community can usually be relied upon in respects like that.
2014-08-22 18:38Dann of ThursdayEach has its time and place to shine. I'll have to try that then since there are some other series not in print anymore I wouldn't mind tracking down. I know and it felt rather jarring after the first part. As long as the novels I'd assume since I think there is one final arc to this series after the one going now with some side stories as well to delve into. Well, I think the story was that there wasn't really one Red Hood but just some guy they dressed up to throw police off so it could work. He's usually the one being the most reasonable at least in all these conflicts. I've thought that's largely turned out well even if I honestly think the Thor movies are the weakest, though there are some specific reasons for that. Hard to tell thus far really, though I am curious how much contact he'll have with Gordan. True, that is what is often done in cases like these.
We've already got a few celebrities joining from the looks of the things and perhaps this is that business he had to take care of he mentioned to Souma. Oh, it'll be great I'm sure. Yes, it's actually a bit sad since it kind of comes across that Hisako is the closest thing she had to a friend. The fact she reads shojo is also hilarious to me. Also, Subaru's whole imagination thing is pretty creepy honestly.
Didn't realize were even getting them, but it was definitely interesting. I'm wondering if Cinder might be an example of someone putting Dust into their own body. The bit about clothes is also very intriguing and I half wonder if we may have already seen examples such as perhaps Ruby's cloak. I think I started watching a bit before the first season finale and followed from there, though the often erratic scheduling made it hard to watch episodes at times. And damn, was that finale dark in a lot ways! Some rather brutal deaths and an honestly depressing ending in some respects. Let me know what you think when you get around to watching it.
Yes, nothing to worry about for now.
Yes, it would have been a perfect opportunity and I wonder if Inquisition was meant to take the idea and expand on it more. Yes, it looks like an interesting story and an expansion of what was done in the first game to a degree, though I have no idea if I'll ever play it myself. Certainly not this year at any rate as I'm trying to budget down as much as I can. That's definitely be something to see given the potential for destruction. Either would be appreciated, but I find myself most wanting to simply see a gameplay demo that isn't some in-progress thing, but something perhaps akin to this Mordor demo. Maybe they'll eventually expand to letting you travel the whole world. On dragons. Though that feels like it could head to MMO route, which I prefer to avoid. I wonder how many ideas they have saved up for expansions or if they just come up with each one one at a time. That's certainly what I'm hoping. True, it's seems straightforward enough that they might release it a week or two before release. That has been something of a tendency I haven't cared for either and don't quite get.
2014-08-21 18:38Dann of ThursdayIt's nature as a more serial show definitely worked as a good introduction that definitely made me invested in seeing what CC had to offer. I imagine it'll remain in such a state for the time being as well. Yeah, DVD I can find for 40 or the Blu-ray for 60, which I think is due to it having been put out by Bandai and not being reprinted. As well as not reduce one of its leads to a damsel in distress, but have them remain actively part of what's going on. True, and the way he structured the original story left a wide time gap that could be filled in with side stories which were represented in the anime. It feels hard to tell at times though I've noticed I don't see quite so many of the mainstays I'm used to as often. Something more to check on then in any case. I was thinking they might do something with that whole origin in the Killing Joke, but it may be better if they don't even do that and leave it something of an unknown. He's definitely one of the premiere examples of it. Yeah, the environment would be something hard to replicate without a lot of sets and Atlantis and what it brings is one of the coolest thing about Aquaman. Warner/DC is apparently working on a movie though so hopefully something comes of that. And if he does I wouldn't expect much of it until near the end of the show when they start really forming into what they'll become. Curious how time is going to work and if we'll see Bruce growing as a sort of background plot.
True, but having some dude chowing down on Eren's leg feels a bit over the top even for this. It's one of those random mysteries about Eren's powers and the events of how he got them. And I suppose either we'll have his father show up and explain or Eren will remember it all.
The bits about the judges is rather interesting as well and it'd really be something of Souma's dad shows up as a judge, which I imagine would push Souma even harder. There's also a not about what happened with Hisako, though it isn't much it seems.
Yeah, and there does need to be a bit of breathing room between all these to forward the plot. Aang did benefit from having a relatively straightforward goal that allowed for a lot to happen as opposed to what was done with Korra, though I've always found it weird to think that whole show happened in a year.
It'd definitely be a good opportunity to go into all those organizations and further the history as well.
Hopefully if this system goes over well they could introduce something in a similar sort of way to something like Mass Effect. Will do. They've definitely done a generally good job not just showing everything though at times I'd wish they'd show more. Looks pretty good thus far and with a better look at the Nemesis system. Didn't realize there were mounts as well. I've definitely got enough to cover that time span. Maybe a look at what the boss fight with a summon like that might actually be like? It's definitely got that feel for it and part of it is definitely that they didn't go with quite the same route they did with ME. I suppose it depends on how many loose ends get tied up as well as what new ones they decide to create.
I really hope they finish whatever bugs are happening so we have more than enough time to play around with it. I'm expecting at least a month before release so October is my guess. I'd imagine they'd keep around the basic ones since they'd be the easiest to do.
2014-08-21 00:22Dann of ThursdayYeah, though I'm not sure it was ever meant to since I got the impression it was designed to sell toys moreso than even the original, though that's a guess on my part. Looked into it and it seems they did in the past but apparently let their rights to it slip so no idea on it now. That's a pretty good deal, especially compared to some of the prices I've seen online. That as well as having a better villain and a bit of a different approach with the sort of police work Kirito is doing here. I suppose part of it was wishing the author had gone with a more ensemble cast since I often found myself wishing we'd get some episodes devoted to characters like Klein who seemed to have really interesting stories going on in their own right. Very true, though it is going to be sad whenever we start losing some of the real veterans, though that's more on the Japanese side. I've never actually seen that series myself or really know anything about it. Given what they've done so far from what I've seen that does seem to be the case at least. I do hope they don't try to put a Joker origin in there given how his origin has usually been connected to when Batman was starting out, unless they want to throw in a quick nod or something. I don't know if I'd go with that so much as he's simply rather flexible in where he can be applied as well as being relatively simple compared to other super heroes. They actually had a pilot for a series with him, but it didn't do well I guess. I do agree though as he really isn't the joke he's often made out to be. That it's much more grounded in general really works to its favor.
It almost feels like it would be going into over the top territory, but yes we'll have to see. I was just wondering after going over some past chapters and seeing that part where he was said to have remembered something about his dad and then gotten all sad.
Spoilers up for next Shokugeki and it really is a nice one that deals with some of the things we've been hoping about if going over others a bit lighter.
It's definitely a great way to demonstrate what everyone is capable of and perhaps see more new tricks from the main characters. Well, they did end Book Two of the original with Aang pretty much dying then getting brought back so they could go the traumatic route like that. If they can manage that well anyway. Yes, it'd be a shame. Indeed, seeing how an Airbender can come to that conclusion would be very interesting to see given what we've seen of them before.
Maybe it'll have a general history of the Inquisition itself in there since I can't recall offhand if it came up in the first volume.
It's usually just that you get something and that's it so it'll be nice to see actual effects of your efforts perhaps positively affect the world. Alright, I was worried that might make it a bit weird going from one to the other. That could definitely be the case and would probably be a really smart decision if they have enough with just the Lycans. I can't recall having seen a full world map yet for the game, but I'd imagine it'd be pretty damn big considering. Yes, being able to take them down can be empowering and help relieve tension. Haven't they? I could have sworn the last few trailers have featured a lot of the same, but perhaps I'll have to look again. What they've shown looks close, but I'm not entirely convinced that meant at all the rest of the game was close. I don't see why they wouldn't at this point. True, it's probably inevitable and perhaps they'll use it to lead into wherever they're going next with all this. Oh, well I guess that works as well.
Well, this isn't all of it and some might be connected within others such as hardening characters like Alistair since that felt like something fairly important with him. Given just how deep some of this seems to go I can't see why they'd gloss over some of that unless it absolutely did not pertain to the game in any way. I thought I saw something that looked like a sort of creation screen for the lead, so perhaps it is.
2014-08-19 17:40Dann of ThursdayFound this: http://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Age-Wor...V1CBD2KZWMTFA2
Surprised to see the second volume so soon, but nice to see nonetheless.
I always liked the idea of a game that had you in charge of an army and had the rank and file soldiers looking up to you and whatnot. Gives more of a face to it all in a sense even if the faces are generic to a degree. Definitely, in general they really do give you the best bang for your buck. I'll with that route then, though aren't several of the characters aged up in the show? Maybe it won't be that weird. It'd definitely be a lot more interesting if there were several kinds of half-breeds like vampires or aquatic based things. Ah, I didn't think of that and it would make sense. Hopefully it all lives up to the potential scale and things you could do. Now that's a surprise and a welcome one at that. I'm liking the general look and idea, though I'm also quite confused with what's going on beyond the start, which isn't exactly a bad thing. The general length in comparison to a movie or something can kind of wear down after a while. Maybe? I know it's been really big over in these parts for quite some time, but I feel like there haven't been too many of those beyond RE that have been big. I'm not sure either really. I can't say I'm too confident about them and I really hope that they don't go and show another repeat trailer with only a few seconds of new stuff thrown in. That might just irritate me more. Hopefully so and if they throw in some gains for the War Table and thus connect it to the single player as you suggested, then it could work. Maybe they could update with new missions now and then as well. Yeah, I rather wish it'd been more of a single player direction than what they went with. I'm rather curious as to if there will be weird timeline stuff going on since that was a major event in their history to have changed, right?
Oh, also someone uploaded some images from the Keep Beta: http://imgur.com/a/cW6Ml
Looks like they really did go full into it with things like sidequests and such.
2014-08-19 17:23Dann of ThursdaySorry, internet was down all of yesterday.
It really was a great show. I liked New Century as well, though more for the whole tournament than the plot, which Chaotic Century ran circles around. Really wish there had been some sort collection of those series put out and I don't know who even had the rights anymore. Agreed, though it's always possible there were other factors like what happened with Code Geass R2. I tend to only go for complete collections and even then only with shows I really like. I hope that one gets licensed again since it's really pricey online for just a movie. I've been looking in on it as well and the set-up is at least rather interesting and isn't irritating me as much as that second half did. I thought the first half had problems too, though a lot of that has to do with seeing wasted potential. Yeah, it's sort of a shame that I don't hear her or some other the other veterans as much these days. I'm a bit curious if these OVAs are strictly prequel or will go into any of the plotlines from the movies or series, though hopefully they don't rehash anything. It reminds me a bit of that Gotham Central comic a few years back which focused on Gordan and the police force and how they deal with things in that city. It'd be really nice if that was the case, though Fox has always been weird with what they keep on for a long amount of time I feel. I'm also rather interested in that Flash series as he's one of my favorites and thought the pilot was alright. It does have all those unfortunate trademarks of drama that seem inherent in any superhero show the CW airs.
It'd be nice if one of them would just go on some long speech about their reasons just to make things easier on everyone. Maybe they have some of whatever was injected in Eren and will turn Reiss into a Titan and have him eat Eren that way? Also, do you think Eren may have eaten his dad? True, what we saw indicated several limits if he even can do it. Yeah, we seem to be focusing largely on them, which makes sense I think. Hope we get another look at what's going on with Eren and Historia soon though.
True, at this point it would probably fit more to enter into the tournament and whatnot with us likely going back to this sort of thing when things go to hell at the end of the season. Yes, we really do have no idea what the end goal is here aside from some indications of perhaps vying for power or something. I guess they could always end it on a big death like him, though I'd be a bit surprised if they went that route. They've definitely still been hitting snags in that areas I think as well as oddly timing their humor at points I think. True, and I think since we had one mole people might be seeing them everywhere or expecting a big twist. Yes, unless it's covered in the comics or something it'd definitely depend on what's going on in her mind and it'd be a bad move not to give some time to that. Indeed, it's a very intriguing idea and in some ways I'm surprised they never delved into it before. Perhaps Laghima as well potentially? Here's where the quote originated from as well as another from Laghima, which seems to give further insight into Zaheer's views: http://zaheerforthepeople.tumblr.com/
2014-08-17 23:27Dann of ThursdayHuh, so someone who apparently has leaked Korra info before put out an excerpt from a journal by the founder of the Red Lotus that is very interesting if true. Might even give a hint to Zaheer's plans for her.
2014-08-17 22:19Dann of ThursdayThe fact that I never get tired of hearing the name their attacks has to count for how entertaining it all is. Ah, haven't watched that one in so long. Well, part of it was that they got cut from a 39 episode series to a 26 episode one which probably explains how rushed it feels at times. Hilariously it was also going to be directed by the guy who did G Gundam and who knows what it would have been like if that happened. Well, my issue is mainly that it's rather expensive the way Bandai sells it as well as not reprinting the older series. It's sort of how I get a bit sad any time a series I like or have an interest in is licensed by Aniplex for U.S. distribution given how much they charge for everything. Indeed, and they were using a number of them across the original movies to all of the TV series. Yeah, the set up in this case makes it potentially make sense and they have the Major's usual VA voicing her superior as a likely nod to the fans. From what I understand, this isn't connected to any of the previous adaptations, but given that how Section 9 was formed has never been depicted perhaps we can sort of just slot it in. Don't really have much of an opinion as I don't watch much if any live action television these days. I do like the concept though as well as the focus through Gordon. Given that Fox is making it though I'll be surprised if it runs that long.
That'd be the most likely or perhaps a mix of that and people who actually believe it's what is best. I'd be weirded out if they actually went that far and have been confused as to whether they actually mean to have him eat him. I've been wondering if this whole situation might cause Eren to use his power on regular humans like that woman apparently could. She's definitely gotten better about it than before. I feel she just needs to have a long talk about all this with someone or something.
That would definitely make sense as an alternative. Yeah, they don't really have anything else unless what Weiss collected sheds some light on this and it was a nice intro to a new character. True, she hasn't really given any sort of impression that she'd be working for anyone else. Well, Jaune and Phyrra more than the other two, but I wouldn't mind them getting more of a spotlight as well. I don't think they'll actually kill him since that would make Korra even more stubborn about not aiding them. Agreed, I feel like we really haven't gotten to know them well enough and they make for a really good threat worth exploring more. I feel like that mention is leading into the next season since as we've discussed it'd make the most sense to make the next focus be the Fire Nation. There was some picture from her wandering days of a circus which seemed to have the Red Lotus members there or something, but it'll have to wait till next week. Maybe Azula could make an appearance?
It kind of reminds me of the Assassin's Guild in AC: Brotherhood actually, but much more expanded. I get the feeling I'm going to go nuts figuring out what the best path to go with all that though. So, would it be better to read the book before watching each season or just doing all the books first and then the series? I know two of the books occur at the same time which I believe the series handled by just putting it all together. That'd definitely be a cool mechanic. Have the indicated there are others because I was under the impression it was just the Lycans? I also noted that it seemed Galahad was going to get bitten and perhaps we'll go later parts of the game struggling with changing. It's really a great idea to run with and I hope each boss fight is unique in its own way. It's great to see him getting more work. Looks really fun and a cool mechanic there as well. I'm wondering if it's just a one time deal though or perhaps something you can do in certain circumstances. Good point, her design has changed quite often and I'm sure she can probably alter it as she wants as well. Yeah, that one looks interesting and it's from the guy who did RE4 so hopefully it turns out well. I may stick to that as well since I can be scared a bit easy depending on the material. I'm curious if that would show up at TGS given it feels like the kind of game that appeals more to western audiences. Is Walking Dead all that big in Japan? If they don't show something though I'm going to start wondering what they're doing since it really doesn't look good from a PR standpoint I feel. That'd be a good incentive for it certainly. That always seems to be one of the potential flaws of online games I feel and could definitely be a problem. They're definitely always a treat to watch and the story is definitely an interesting direction.
I haven't seen that one in a long time. Yeah, there's a lot of good stuff overall.
2014-08-16 11:17Dann of ThursdayYes, the design for this one appears to lend itself more to branching paths and side quests that can be more expansive or different from those in the previous games, which I'm all for. It's interesting that they did so since I'd think the format would allow them to be truer to things than a movie version would, but it is nice they've kept the general spirit intact. I should be able to get to them soon in any case. Yeah, it would have been nice to actually get a look at whatever improvements have been made. Oh yes, especially with some of the insane things they can have him make. I think it's definitely looking like a full year with lots of great releases. Basically an extension on the Mouth of Sauron from the books, which was a cool thing to try expanding on. Troy especially has been getting a lot of work and great roles as of late. Really glad that we still get a lot of entries in that style and that major studios still takes shots at making them. Yeah, I wasn't clear on that either, but I'm also curious about whether we get a dragon as an ally going by that shot in the trailer of one tackling it. Unless that was Flemeth though the coloring doesn't match. Same as in a lot of cases I thought the custom made ones could come out looking really weird in comparison to the default ones. The inability to really fight back is one of the weaknesses of having horror in a video game setting unless you come up with some special mechanic or something. Need to see more of that one though Starbreeze has usually done good work. I'd honestly be surprised if they didn't show something at TGS, but we'll see. I had the same thought really and co-op seems the most reasonable application of that given how the game works. I like the look of it in a lot of ways, but overall I'm inclined to agree and hope as well that the other new project is a bit more appealing.
Just sad about the whole thing really as I loved his work as well. My sister wants to watch some of the old ones like Jumanji and Hook now.
2014-08-16 01:16Dann of ThursdayPerhaps so. More or less yes.
I'm actually rather fond of that design myself. I watch it every so often and it has a rather fun dub I think when they're full on in the fights. I only saw bits and pieces of it myself and am not sure I ever saw the ending. Have a complete collection of the Escaflowne series as well. True, but if Funimation can get rights for some of their other anime I can't see why Gundam couldn't follow unless they plan to hold on tight to that one. I'd honestly be fine if they simply kept Epcar since the man loves being Batou and does such a great job with it. Though this one appears to be telling a story of how the Major came to be with Section 9 in the first place from what I can gather so perhaps younger voices can work.
It once again comes down to our lack of information regarding their motives and goals I guess. Them wanting him really is one of the clearest actions we've seen from them simply based on the logic of having him as a controllable asset. It would be nice to see her branch out a bit with her connections and maybe come out a bit of that single minded view she has regarding Eren and the world. Hopefully we lead with that.
Ah, like expert pilots or users of whatever tech is available (can those robots come in a suit form maybe)? Yes, focus seems to largely be on them for the moment, though after the latest episode perhaps we'll move more into the festival and see some of the others. Indeed, such as whether Cinder has a boss or if the show might be divided into having a different sort of main boss each time. It'd be a nice reversal of that situation and I can be a sucker for that sort of thing. There was actually an excellent demonstration in the newest episode with Tenzin and Zaheer's approach to using airbending with the latter being far more aggressive. It was really rather great seeing Tenzin toss him around and he probably would have won if the others hadn't ganged up on them. Going for threatening the airbenders for leverage is certainly a demonstration of how badly he wants he to come to him and I'd rather like her to have a good stand off though I'm really wondering if we'll see Zaheer defeated this season. She just sort of ran off at the end of that last comic. Also heard a weird theory that Suyin might actually be Red Lotus based on how she reacts at times, though I don't know if I buy it. Interesting idea though.
I'll have the rest up tomorrow morning. Been away most of yesterday and all of today so need some sleep for the moment.
