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 was the intention, it was ‘overplayed’ but the characters appropriately reacted and grew to the fact that nothing was changing, or at least their perceived nothing was changing. The timing was actually quite good, once you finally are like ‘dammit, bitch! Stop!’ they then have something acknowledging it and growing. Which was excellent work.

  • Babymetal Anime Series Announced:
    Ami and Yumi are still around, but the show Hihi Puffy AmiYumi was most definitely a gimmick for marketing them in other regions including the US. At the time they weren’t really known except for the Teen Titans intro, which was also kind of a gimmick, but one that worked well because it was catchy. Baby Metal though already has mainstream western approval and has appeared on the Tonight Show, so they’re definitely a different situation, so I’m curious what they’ll do with this show. Points to …

  • Babymetal Anime Series Announced:
    The definition can be challenged all it wants, but they’re right. It’s not anime unless it’s made primarily in Japan based on Japanese conceptualization. ‘Anime style’ is separate, and there’s nothing stopping outsourcing of a decent level of inbetweening to Korea and such, but the core concepts and creation must remain Japanese. In this sense, Boondocks could technically be called an anime, due to its animation being from Production IG, however its core concepts do not exist as Japanese, so it …

    I know I haven’t played FFXV yet… but I gotta say… I really, really want a sequel to Type0 based on whatever that post-credits clip showed… because fuck that ending.
