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

Avatar of 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 …

    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 …

    That is a bit of a representation, though. That part is not as clearly conveyed because as with most artistic works they don’t like to hold your hand through it. The fact that it can represent both elements of it being a comment on anime’s spiraling, and also some people interpreting it the other way, whether ironically or realistically, is mainly a mirror for you to perceive how you think of reality. For me it’s showing what could be for anyone in the otaku lifestyle, the blatant nature of the …

    Hey, look. It’s what Pokemon Snap should have been. The funniest part is I did game testing for D3, and I can already see what bugs would have to be looked for… and they would simultaneously be required to not be written up as clipping bugs, nor written up for ratings violations…

  • Top 20 Anime With The Most Gorgeous Seiyuu Casts:
    For a time, and thanks largely to being introduced to Circle Kuusou Zikken’s One Piece Nami doujinshi, I consider Nami to be one of the hottest girls in anime. It evolved because she’s a great character at least as far as I have seen, and that rounded her out to be gorgeous for me. That is for much of the early style, Oda and the anime got rather strange over time, same with Bleach, everything stopped looking as good to me. But my entire perception of how hot she was was peppered by that …

  • Top 20 Anime With The Most Gorgeous Seiyuu Casts:
    Okay, I admit, I did laugh pretty hard for some reason at the unabashed quick but steady degeneration into blatant hentai pics. Bravo for the creative and arousing pseudo-troll. You would not be arrested in the UK for this one.

  • Locodol Bouncy Bikini BD Extra:
    @ anon 23:59 That is partially true. Although there has been some truly excellent, original anime that has been created in the recent years too, so throwing the baby out with the bathwater is just a sad generalization. There may be many clones, but that is not limited to anime. It’s every genre, and plus the reality is the animes are not all that bad. The clones are here because it worked the first time. The only reason it didn’t keep working as well is because we’ve seen it before, it’s still …
