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

    I have to disagree, the context of it is something that puts it in high contrast to the excitement of the other shots so looks a bit ridiculous admittedly. When I saw Distant Worlds at Otakon a few years back, as soon as a real harp began playing the Final Fantasy chords in an auditorium packed with people, with a live professional orchestra playing something I had been made fun of for my young life as nintendo freak, loser and so on just because I liked games before it became the norm, I began …

    All righty, that plus the face on your avatar made me laugh my ass off, thanks for that.

    About as common as semen and dog food to the run of the mill hentai animation.

    Those of us in Phoenix, Arizona are comfortable at around 80-90F (26-32oC) due to no humidity in the desert, however due to the same reason, if there is no sun directly on you, temperatures drop immediately in the shade or when the sun sets, and our nights hit snow-level temperatures, bouncing off of freezing just barely. But if it does drop below 70, the chill is near-immediate to us and compounds pretty quickly. That said, we love seeing people who visit and try to handle the 110oF (45oC) in …
