Comment on Lightning Returns: “But She Looks Like A Joke Now!” by HouseLife:

Avatar of HouseLife

I really enjoyed the subtlety and focus of the first two games. Most people hate them for pretty stupid reasons, but even I won’t defend Nomura’s decision here.

Granted I’m not against them trying new things since haters will hate no matter what they do and that’s already been proven. But the benefit is at least you can change her outfit apparently in this game. At least based on what a friend told me.

I refuse to even watch the trailer so I can buy the game without any preconceived notions about it and let my actual play experience be my own. The outfit won’t ruin the game for me at least, but hopefully it’s got purpose. I just want to see the completion of the trilogy, because it is an exceptional game series so far.

    And you missed the part where I specifically said I will not do any research or watch anything related to the game so I buy it and start it with a clean perception. Unlike many of the morons peppering the internet, I actually do in fact form my own opinions about something and ignore all the stupid people until I form that opinion. Bitching about something before it’s even begun has wasted a lot of my time in the past where I listened to peoples’ opinions and they turned out utterly incorrect, …

  • Lightning Returns: “But She Looks Like A Joke Now!”:
    There was definitely subtlety. I wasn’t speaking about designs or things like that, but the actual acting. I honestly don’t care whether people liked the acting or characters or not, but there are two things that are true: The acting was solid, and there was a lot of unspoken emotion that was conveyed very well. If you didn’t feel it, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t there to feel if you wanted to. Characters or scenario may not be to your liking, but it was there, and I respected it. People who …

    If you haven’t played it, I really suggest you give it a shot rather than take on other peoples’ perspectives. If you have, well… sorry it’s not FF7? You can play that anytime you want.

  • Lightning Returns: “But She Looks Like A Joke Now!”:
    If by ‘thing’ you mean really well-made JRPGs in a classic sense? Then I guess yes, but people don’t play it because it’s popular. They play it because it always, always has a standard of quality that constantly gets raised. Whether people don’t like their choices or not, the quality increases on a constant basis whether they like it or not. They just bitch and moan too much to actually pay attention to that fact.

    That too is wrong. Fate/Stay Night told a superb story as a visual novel. Trying to pretend that just because they have images of the characters it can’t be a deeper plot has been proven repeatedly to be incorrect. If you are saying you intentionally want bland, then that’s why they get away with it. I like cute girls, but it’s so empty and pointless. Have they actually done anything in all these games that makes a contiguous world where the games have anything to do with each other and grown …

    Here’s my problem. People allowing forgiveness for something that has nothing to do with studio size and thinking that being a small studio is forgivable for pointless storyline and laziness. Moe can exist alongside creativity and amusement. Don’t foolishly think it’s either Indy or Witcher 3, that’s not reality. You can make it better than that and it really takes not much effort for even a partially decent professional writer. I could have even woken up from a 2 hour night sleep and written …

  • Final Fantasy XV Pre-Order DLC Previewed:
    Not yet. Still the best companies recognize the base game must be solid, and the DLC is just peripheral. Tales games are all outfits. Mass Effect’s DLC for example is something I more than was happy to purchase for $14.99, I never thought I’d say that, but its Citadel DLC was not a core part of the main game in any form, it was entirely a filler arc, but was the funniest shit I’ve ever seen, using every running gag formed in the entire trilogy brilliantly. That shit deserves my money any day.

  • Four Goddesses Online: “Neptune Returns!”:
    So legitimate question. Are these really at all decent? And I don’t mean cute girls or anything like that, I played the first one and platinumed it just because I do that. But it was essentially a chore by the end rather than an accomplishment. Compile Hearts games have by and large seemed barren of creativity or purpose. I can understand treating them as sort of visual novel with gameplay possibly for enjoyment, but have they sincerely and objectively become games with at least decent plots …

  • Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization Massacred by Censors:
    People who blurt the term SJW for everything are starting to piss me off as much as the people who fit the stereotype that term has been overused to represent. Let me spell it out, nothing has changed in the past 10 years in this regard. They censored it because of the rating it could have due to bare breasts being suggestively put in place for a teen based game. Whether you agree or not, blaming a useless acronym is just laziness and stupidity, the same level of laziness and stupidity that the …
