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

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, or just negative and stupid. So I gave up.

    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 …

  • Lightning Returns: “But She Looks Like A Joke Now!”:
    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.

  • Lightning Returns: “But She Looks Like A Joke Now!”:
    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 …

    I scrolled through the images before reading what the fuck was happening with an expression of confusion I didn’t realize I had until I went back until I read the description. And then promptly lost my shit when the context clicked in my head for all pictures at once. Then I said a silent prayer to god internet for its grace.

  • The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan Revealed:
    I admit I do miss the intelligence inherent in the 2006 designs. While the K-on style does have its place, and definitely did show intelligence behind the girls’ faces in K-on which I attribute to why they were likable, compared to original Haruhi’s smoothly angular designs, this does feel like it lacks the same mystery of the original. That said, I agree with Sasazuka’s assessment, this is not a bad derivative. It, like everything, will take a bit of getting used to considering my nostalgic …

    I sense some trolling in the female results.

  • Boxing Angel: “Cute Girls Beating Each Other!”:
    As soon as I saw the young girl in the swimsuit, I had the thought that I wish this were an anime in the sae vein of Hajime no Ippo so we could see some kind of creative writing on how she would win against the larger, stronger girls. Then my mammalian mind liked that thought, and then my reptilian brain said “Bouncing tits” and now I’m moving on with my day.

  • Final Fantasy Legends: The Space-Time Crystal Trailer:
    Only real complaint for the FFXIII battle system specifically I’ve heard is that everything wasn’t unlocked soon enough for characters. But really that didn’t matter, it gave a reason to use the other characters, because they were the ones with the abilities. Whether they liked the characters or not was kind of irrelevant to the uses. FFXIII was more like a commander of the battle than actual individual control like older games. It’s that part that everyone got up their own asses about. The …
