  • Unfortunately I can’t speak to the anime; I read the manga and quit like 20 chapters in in favor of a plot summary when it became clear it was glossing over the stuff I was interested in.

  • I’m not sure if I’m going to be well enough to do a real post on it, but everyone should play Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir. Beautiful art, beautiful music, beautiful story. One of the best games I’ve played in a very long time.

    This is one of the few times I strongly rec the remake over the original. I tried the original and it was balanced so…[Read more]

  • I had this exact experience with Tokyo Ghoul, which was pitched as being about what it means to be human and the morality of death but was actually about heaping superpowers and specialness onto the protagonist. I had the exact reaction as you: why even bother creating a setup that asks these questions if you don’t actually give a shit about them?

  • HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS THEY ANNOUNCED RF5

  • Lol, a fair point. Maybe we can populate a forum with bots and sic her on it.

  • Hi — I edited the direct link out because I don’t want to encourage people to go argue, either for or against Blaze. I’d like to avoid throwing kindling on the fire if possible. Anyone super desperate to see reddit drama is capable of going and finding it themselves, but I’m very wary of enabling more harassment of anyone than is already…[Read more]

  • I would like to formally admit that I Was So So Wrong and am now utterly convinced the artist of Made in Abyss is a pedophile. Stumbled onto an interview where he says he designed Reg’s look to be reminiscient ‘of the sexy defenselessness of Astro Boy’ and I have never wanted so badly to repress a piece of information.

    I will be over in the…[Read more]

  • I actually got the Kyouko Sakura one in part because I thought the chain made it look a lot more vibrant than when it was in spear form — gives it a lot of motion.

    As far as I’m aware there are no Touko kits, but right now I have one of the twins from Tsukihime in the mail. I just finished an Arcuied but the colors photographed really badly so…[Read more]

  • I figured between Twitter and Instagram, Twitter was the lesser evil since IG is owned by Facebook. xD Plus for whatever reason the Japanese kit community is on Twitter more than any other site.

    I don’t know that videos would be interesting, unfortunately. It’s just hours upon hours of me sanding resin and painting thin layers of a single color. 

  • Today in shameless self-promotion:¬†https://twitter.com/ActKits

    Idk if any of you are interested in my artwork, but past projects include Higurashi and Tsukihime kits and upcoming projects include Chobits, Made in Abyss, Fate, and ARIA, so give me a follow if you want to watch me struggle to paint things!

    Finally wrapping up the Dept. Heaven series, Gungnir.

    This was easily the weakest of the four games. It felt very rushed to me, and kind of all over the place as a result. It’s likely the only one I wouldn’t […]

      I forget, did you get to play the Japanese-only games? Blaze Union and Yggdra Unison specifically. They’re both sequels of sorta to Yggdra Union, with Blaze Union being a prequel that sets up Yggdra Union and Yggdra Unison being a ‘fandisk’ that mostly expands on Yggdra Union’s characters and lets you play pretty much every major character in a very diferent version of the gameplay.

  • oh god i just saw the new post editor for the first time whyyyyy

  • Yep P3 is still on my list, I just felt the need to give this one the ol’ college try in case it was secretly like Chrono Trigger or something.

    but yeah the writing was laughably bad

  • The phone ports of the first four DQ games are quite playable! They were the perfect things to have around as time killers. It helps that they’re so short.

  • Update: Persona 2 is slightly more streamlined, slightly less grindy, and still incredibly unfun. The idea of rumors coming true is neat but it’s buried under the story/ gameplay schism and terrible writing (“He has so much pain in his eyes” are you ffs). It also spends so much time on Japanese high school drama idgaf about. The random encounters…[Read more]

  • @ Keleri

    Agree with all this 100% — I don’t know if you saw the Andy Richter tweets about context and historical vs modern comedy, but he phrases the point about yesterday not being now and how it shouldn’t be really well.

  • The impression I’ve always had of Rowling is that she’s a businesswoman first. Back when it helped her to have a lily-white posh cast, that’s what she had, but as soon as it caused positive buzz she was like ‘oh yeah Dmbledore is gay and Hermione is black and American Hogwarts something something Native Americans’ without bothering to do the…[Read more]

    Labyrinth of Refrain is also on my wishlist! I’m going to do Odin Sphere next.

  • Act commented on the post, Phantom Brave 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    FINALLY played GrimGrimoire, and I really loved it! The art was beautiful, the story was sad, and it’s so unusual to see a lesbian romance with no subtext of fanservice or lolgay in jRPGs.

  • Would anyone be interested in a steam copy of ibb&obb? It’s a really great couch co-op puzzle-platformer. They gave me a free copy when I bought it and it’s just been accumulating dust in my inventory.
