Comment on Dolls vs Figures: “Are Ball Joints Really That Sexy?” by Imyou:

Avatar of Imyou

Doll joints look like really nasty prosthetic limbs, and the hair and faces often look creepy too.

Figures are like 3D snapshots of 2D characters. To be fair, sometimes the faces on those are pretty awful too, but it’s rarer and not on purpose.

Figmas are cool, just because they hide the joints skillfully when they can.

    I loved all the Mario Bros games, before they were even “super”, but 64 killed it for me. It was insufferable. 3D platformers are an awful idea. That’s one reason there’s such a return to 2D platformers now. I’ve tried some later Marios like Galaxy too, but… it’s just a chore.

  • Nintendo Retires Splatfests “It’s Been Fun!”:
    That’s why I didn’t get a WiiU and sadly can’t play Splatoon… They dropped the Wii so fast and hard it was still on shelves (they’d just launched a refresh!) when they killed all the online features. I mean, if its shelf life turns it into such a rental, then just lend me the hardware for free or fee and I’ll pay to use the software. I’m not buying it outright for a quick fling.

    I’m so curious why Ooishi there has a black eye…

  • Virtual Reality: “Come Explore Edo Japan!”:
    Yeah… Granzella(?) had a nice Edo village with games and everything. Run around fighting oni with your cheap starter shinai etc.

  • Urban Legend in Limbo Trailer Introduces Inaba:
    As I understand it: Kaguya calls her Inaba, and maybe Tewi and any other bunny girl the same. Udongein or Udonge is her most popular name, but is just a pet name Eirin uses. Reisen is her only real name… which of course makes it confusing later when Reisen shows up. I’m guessing Rift isn’t a bit familiar with Touhou characters, saw the usual “Reisen Udongein Inaba” and went “ok, Japanese name order would make the last word her given name…”
