Sorry I haven't responded in a while, just haven't had much enthusiasm in talking on here. How are you doing?

Lol

So, if you combined all those together, you would want to make a Castlevania/Metroid/Shovel Knight-like game? I'd be up for it if you were to make such a product.

That's an interesting thought about landscapes changing with time, never thought about documenting the change for yourself, that's quite beautiful. Yep, good ol' blondie coming through with those snazzy pics could inspire just about anyone to take up such a thrilling hobby. Bet he's inspired hundreds of thousands just like you. Maybe I should as well...

No, it's been about a few years since I've watched any non-Japanese cartoons. Tho I will say, I did watch a few clips of Rick and Morty on YT, and I'm a little impressed with the humor and animation they got going on. I can appreciate Rick being the best/worst grandfather in the world now lol

Yeah, I watched a bit of it. It was alright. I laughed quite a bit at one part, but I can't remember which moment it was.

Uhh, played a decent amount of the original collection, delved into Battle Network 2 and 5 a lot, played the side-scroller version of BN, actually liked it, played Megaman Zero 1 and 2, enjoyed them, and also played Command Mission. My first Final Fantasy before I played Final Fantasy, I suppose lol very good, despite being somewhat derivative. You?

Not yet :(
Avena05 Nov 4, 8:35 AM
alright
Avena05 Nov 3, 3:16 PM
hahaha u got me. Well, nothings wrong with that, but i think u haven't watched that much anime to say so.
Nice profile by the way.
Avena05 Nov 2, 5:29 PM
good taste huh?
Corey_Bennett Oct 20, 12:14 PM
Sweetness. We need more indie and small-time developers in this day and age of gaming when the big boys are becoming too bloated and compromising in their marketing and schemes. Fucking necessary DLC and microtransactions and loot boxes can go to Hell. Which games would you want to develop the most? What pictures do you like taking the most?

I've had people that I've talked to for months who stopped talking altogether after a while, mostly because I can't find anything else to say. Also for no reason whatsoever.

Oh, please. We all know about the punny humor the Japanese are famous for. It would only be right to own up to the pun of One like a true fan would.

Exactly. I think that statement, besides being a turning point for 9S and his development, was also like those dirty mind tests you see on the Internet. As soon as I saw it, I thought it was "fuck" too, or at least "love". Then I realized if the game had Strong Language like it said on the back of the case, they wouldn't bleep anything out. Though it's funny only 1 use of the word is in the game, and on a document of all things too. But yeah, it's definitely "kill".

Yeah, yeah lol
Corey_Bennett Oct 17, 6:56 PM
I can see that, especially with Pyra.

Gotcha.

Eh, not so much ashamed of it, but rather that it's the ONLY thing in terms of hobbies or life goals I wanna attach myself to. Basically I'm crippling myself and my future by putting all of my focus on video games, so...hey, what exactly are you planning to be in the future, career or job-wise?

That comment came out way more dickish than I wanted it to. Believe me, if I had more time and energy, I would chat with everyone I like and answer their questions like that. Chatting is fun, but it can also be tiring. You chat with anyone regularly besides me?

I'd give you credit for the funny if you actually capitalized her name lol

Yeah, just his opening statement of "It looks like a Drakengard game, but doesn't FEEL like one" summed it all up. I'm sure it improved in some ways mechanically from the first, but everything else, besides a couple twists later in the end like Legna using you, or even Nowe being a fusion of Furiae and Inuart (Which, I hate him so much, but admittedly, that fact is pretty Drakengardesque), was just a complete waste. Also, you awaken to your true potential via a kiss...fuck you. Just, fuck you. Still, my boy Caim fortunately came out unscathed and made even cooler, so I'll give the writers props for that. Really, ol' pirate voice Machina was Gismor all along? Huh.

Well, you know how hype and expectations work. Mr. Clempsy just had his too etched into a certain sweet spot he wanted to be pleasured in (yes, that is a straight-up innuendo). I do think he bashed it way harder than it needed to be, mostly in the opinion that he thinks it shits on the legacy and tropes of the original and becomes too immature for its own good. I personally welcomed the crude humor, made a nice respite from all the carnage and sadness that was happening. Besides, Taro makes different games every time. Automata, while sharing a basis and plot connection, isn't OG NIer in the end. So why should D3 be as much the same as D1?

On a similar note, I hope Taro and crew will stop making additional novels and supplementary material for Automata soon so Clemps can start making his analysis video for it.

Btw...on Route B, when 9S gets hacked and kidnapped by Adam, what did you think "****" meant the first time around, and what do you think it means now? Just a fun question.
Corey_Bennett Oct 15, 1:32 PM
Well, if a show is bad, that's pretty much it, the show is bad, whether or not it does flaunt butts and boobs and skin. Funny it took you weeks to properly diss, but I did have the same feeling with a couple shows back in the day, so it's normal.

That's alright. I don't really see much comparison to Guilty Crown besides the design of some of the clothes, but damn, that voice-acting leaves a lot to be desired. Then again, usually the voice-over for trailers is worse off than the actual product, plus the context will help when you play it, but yeah, I hope they can fix it in time. Graphics do look nice though, and Pyra is really cute.

Sounds like my kind of channel, then! I have a bad addiction to video game themed shit, but shhhhhhh, don't tell anyone else.

Yeah, I saw that! I went on a huge Taro binge and listened to and commented on whatever I could. I have a few good comments on Automata's OST, too lol Thanks for subscribing btw. As for D1, you have to know it's practically a Dynasty Warriors/Ace Combat clone made by a rather underfunded team, so it's gonna be lacking a bit in gameplay. If you like repetitiveness and insanity like I do, you're gonna enjoy some of what it has to offer, if not, then at least the story will be unique and dark enough to sink your teeth into.

I think they are, they're more soundly built than D1 but not as good as Automata, but they make up for it with their stories and world-building that add to the universe's lore and history. The gameplay and side-questing for Nier is average but serviceable, and the God-of-War style gameplay for D3 is actually fun and strategic with its multiple weapons and combos helped by switching weapons on-the-fly, though it's hampered a bit by the frame-rates and spotty dodging.

You're welcome! Lots of subscribers too, pretty good.

You're not wrong. A few of their lists were good in the past, but now I have no need for them. Sometimes I forget there's an option to unsubscribe lol Done now.

Sorry, I got other people to talk to, including one I have long, awesome conversations with at night. Also, there is about a 10-hour time difference between us, and I figure I have plenty of time to respond to you when you're not on. For me, you don't get on until 2 in the morning lol

Well, thank you, dude. You're pretty rad yourself, and I'm glad I could make a friend in you.

It's a long story, but she's a friend I'm worried about, and can't communicate with, and I just want her to know I still care and that others care. That's pretty much it, without getting too deep.
Corey_Bennett Oct 14, 11:51 AM
Wow. She has some really good taste to watch and like all those series. Cool that she wasn't turned off by the ecchi ones either, it's a hit-or-miss genre for a lot of people, especially women for the whole degradation thing. Your mom is a pretty cool lady.

I should probably look into the new trailers soon, then. I'd like to see if this can be a true successor to the best JRPG of the decade so far, imho.

Will do.

Nice. Favorite line? I usually crack up when Gamagoori is involved, like the whole "Gamagoori! Damn, I wanna sex you up!" bit.

Dang, I was way far off for just basing it off the name. But they seem like cool guys, I'll check them out someday. Nice Donkey Kong reference, btw.
Corey_Bennett Oct 12, 5:32 PM
It's cool, dude. I sometimes oversell my disdain or passiveness for my least favorites, too. Wish I could oversell positivity for what I love the most, but it's easier when you dislike more than like.

Then you're a braver (or more tolerant) man than I could ever hope to be. Lucky, the most my mom ever watched was some Studio Ghibli films, she'd be disgraced at all the "satanic" stuff I watch, which, its symbolism is at times, but they're more than that. Was your mom a fan of anime before or after she watched them with ya? Anyone who watches animu without being forced is cool in my book.

I've only watched a few of his videos, but I do like his style of reviewing in that he sprinkles in decent amounts of humor while also pinpointing who would like the series he is looking at. He's also one of the people who helped me get started on Steins Gate, so cheers to him.

Easy: Game Grumps for general goodness, and Lost Pause for anime goodness. Both just cater to my need of having a fun time and putting a smile on my face while also ripping apart and going loco over their specific interests. I play GG as background noise at any time when I've had a rough or long day.

Holy deja vu, Batman! lol

Never watched it, but now I know where that brown anime kid with the outlandish pink hair on Twitter came from. Vampire Weekend singer created it? Huh...what do you think of it?

Thanks! I still have yet to add my favorite movies and anime series/movies, but you'll see them up soon. Yeah, it's the most beautiful portrait of any character I've seen from that game, so I had to honor best girl with the best pic. Yeah, 2B owns the short look, and A2 owns the long, but she's sexy either way. Satsuki did cut her hair in the end, huh? Totally forgot until now. Did you ever watch the English bloopers for Kill la Kill? Funny stuff.

Besides being the obvious worst "entry" in story and characters and tone, if you can call it that because Taro had no creative input and could obviously feel that 95% of the time? Well, I can't say for the gameplay because I don't own it, but in the 5 hours of cutscenes I watched on YT, I almost literally fell asleep through all of it. Nowe...just, no way. And Eris and Manah and the villains (except Hanch) and even Urick were so bland. Only saving graces were Legna's quips and his underlying purpose in the plot, as well as any scene involving Caim and Angelus. I can't say it's bad in the story department, but compared to what I'm used to in the grand scheme of things, it just didn't have enough kick or pizazz.

Never played the game since I don't have a WiiU, but I heard most people were disappointed after the awesomeness of the first. Haven't watched any new trailers either, but is it looking to be good?

No problem. Sorry if I'm not asking enough.

Ooh, it's been a while since I've viewed it, but I did get some serious chuckles from it. Shut the hell up, Adachi and It's not like your mom died come to mind at first.

Heard of it, I'm guessing they make those funny vine compilation videos I've seen on the interwebs? Haven't watched a vid yet.
Corey_Bennett Oct 11, 12:20 PM
Okay. It's quite common to see yay or nay opinions about her performance, and even I think she could've done better with some line readings, but overall, she was good. I'm really proud she's embraced the fandom with her cosplaying 2B and filling her twitter with puns and findings related to Automata.

Hey, I actually like Squall quite a bit, so lay off lol Cloud is...passable. I love Tifa a lot more.

So being motherly and overprotective while also being playful and hostile at times means no personality, huh? Interesting. And you have a point with that cutscene, though I did enjoy it, as awkward and baity as it was.

Berkut was a great tragic villain in the series, and that performance by Ian Sinclair was riveting. As for the villains, you're mostly right on the money, even with Validar getting a 2. Seemed like the villains of the older games of the 2000's were better executed and more dastardly than these new ones we got. Lyon from Sacred Stones and Ashnard from Path of Radiance were really great at the time.

My favorite protag from FE is always gonna be Ike. First one to not be of noble blood, a great all-around fighter, and my main in SSB: Brawl.

Huh, those are a lot of trashy shows, except for K-on. And no, she seems cool and cute. I actually don't pay much attention Japanese VAs but a select few. No, I don't like Four because of her ACTUAL personality. When you get farther into the game (or rather, her DLC), you'll understand why.

Sweet. Yeah, I do have a bit of love for British humor, so those guys are really good. I'll be sure to watch some of FC someday.

I've only watched the first trailer in English only once, and my first thought after reading the comments was, "Why the fuck does Hinoka sound like a 5-year-old boy instead of the husky-voiced warrior princess I grew to love?" I mean, Buttercup from Powerpuff Girls voiced her, that's freakin' awesome. And I love the new VA, Cindy Robinson, but she's done better in the past than...that. I blame voice direction. So happy to know the rest is gonna follow suit. Yaaaayyyy...

Hmmm. It was certainly an acquired taste for me after I listened to and enjoyed all of Nier's voice-over. No one was miscast, everybody did the best they could with what they had, the writing, while a bit juvenile at times, was still funny and fun, and the tones expressed in each scene was done just right. All-in-all, a good dub, just could've been better compared to Nier. As for certain changes in characters like Zero and Cent that I heard about, I couldn't find a big difference between the English and Japanese counterparts, especially Zero, whose foul-mouthed "edginess" I loved more than a calm-and-collected archetype. D1 was also good for its time, if sometimes stilted in the line delivery and had negative criticism because it altered and censored some scenes like one character's pedophilia and another incestuous feelings. It'd be nice for the remake to make the original script whole again.

...He really reviewed Christmas with the Kranks? Damn, I always wanna forget that one. I'll check out the stuff before and after to compare one day.

Yeah, I know I should. I think the scene with the obese man becoming so inflated by his consumption of food just grossed me out so much, I had to stop so I wouldn't lose my sanity.
Corey_Bennett Oct 10, 1:03 PM
That's cool, that's cool. It took me a while to warm up to 2B, but she is great once you've played the whole game. I guess Kira Buckland was iffy for you too in English? Gotta go with A2 for me. Such a fan of all the angry female characters in the series, and she keeps the line going after Kaine and Zero pretty well. Plus, I like her take on the "vagabond warrior" archetype, and she's beautiful with her long hair and revealing outfit.

Might be a good time to drop FFXIII for now, since there's little left to say. But I wholeheartedly agree that FFXV does have a lot more soul, camaraderie and heart than...most JRPGs, honestly. Amazing voice acting too, especially for Noctis and Ardyn, whose performances by Ray Chase and Darin de Paul have made them my favorite hero and villain in the series. Yes, I think Noct is better than Cloud and Squall, sue me. And yes, Ardyn IS the greatest villain, more so than Sephiroth, more so than Kuja, and WAAAAYYYYYY more than Kefka. Don't hate, just an opinion.

Awwwww, you think Camilla isn't good? But her fierce loyalty to her friends and her swift judgement of enemies makes her awesome. And she's so lovable with her sweet face and dynamite curves. Okay, what about favorite characters, there have to be a few, right? For example, Camilla, Tharja, Lonqu, Owain and Lucina are easily top 5 for me.

If we're not including Zero, who is my favorite character in the series (read her Novella, it's heartbreaking af), then favorite Intoner has to be One. She's an unconventional villain who does look out for her people and her sisters, but also knows that some weighty choices and sacrifices must be made to uphold the world she resides in, no matter how costly. I like all the others too, except Four, even if she is cute. I used to like Cent a lot because of his connection to Two, but now I'm quite the Decadus fan due to him being my role model in discovering more about desire while also being a decent human being, and he has some of the funniest quips and habits in the game. Plus, he looks like Alexander Anderson and is voiced by Liquid Snake. Holy shit! You?

I love the majority of Awakening's characters but only like a handful of Fate's, due to the former's support conversations being so well-written, but the latter's didn't live up to its predecessor. However, I do think Fate's story and its missions were more tighter in narrative and script than Awakening. It really felt like you were observing the going-ons and consequences of invading/protecting one's kingdom for order and peace, instead of the usual save-the-world plot. Until you get to Revelations, then it becomes extremely predictable.

I have watched some of their videos, summaries and reviews, and they're all quite funny and unique in their own way, even if they are in the same broad spectrum of comedy. Recently watched NC's Happening review, very good stuff. Though I guess I prefer JonTron for doing more skits and editing in his videos that goes to my kind of style.

I've watched Life of Brian and The Holy Grail, enjoyed both. Also watched The Meaning of Life, but quit halfway due to boredom or whatnot. Never watched any of Flying Circus, unfortunately. Why do you ask?
Corey_Bennett Oct 9, 1:38 PM
Thank you so much! I honestly don't know how I was able to, but it was a worthwhile achievement in my gaming history. Plus, any way to support Taro, as well as the people who helped me find out about him, is awesome in its own way.

Oh, I know. 9 hours is nothing to sneeze at with all that dialogue and cutscene action. Took me 4 days to plow through that shit, but the story and characters were worth it. Hell, even playing the game itself was very fun, besides a certain last level and a couple lackluster dragon levels. I'd love a D1 remake, the game itself is solid, even a guilty pleasure, but it could use so much work in its plot and mechanics to make it even better. I wouldn't mind the Dynasty-Warriors style gameplay again if they added more variety and intensity. And finely-tuned graphics and voice-acting.

Agreement. He's the main character who was secretly disguised as the sidekick, and when you find out the tragic past between him and 2B, it makes his transition from optimistic, curious brainiac to a broken, justifiably angry psycho so incredible. Also, bravo to Kyle McCarley, just...damn, performance of the year for sure. A2 and Adam were also very cool, top 10's. Who is the best waifu for you, 2B or A2?

That's fair. XIII was my first FF ever, and while I still have some glaring issues with the pacing and a few characters (Snow being the worst offender, surprisingly), I still adored the graphics, the voice acting, the most intuitive battle system I've seen in the franchise, the length, the music, which is a bit generic at times, but very well-produced and memorable. Linearity was okay, it kept the story on track, though there could have been side-activity.

Me too. I started out in '05 with Sacred Stones and Path of Radiance. Played every game except the old NES/SNES stuff before Blazing Sword. Favorite waifus from the series? Husbandos are included too.
Corey_Bennett Oct 8, 12:38 PM
I remember DD by his anime reviews via "Should you Watch (Insert Anime Title)". I know he did a vid on Drakengard 3 beforehand, so that's nice. The earliest I knew of the franchise was 2010 when I had a PS3 and was scared off by critics saying the gameplay was mediocre, so I wouldn't look its way. Suffice to say, I hated myself for never giving it a try. Jump to 2017, I played the demo of Automata, loved it, researched it, watched Clemps' analysis stuff too many times, bought it, loved it so much I bought every other game of Taro's, including the rare first Drakengard, and beat them all. Very good shit.

Did you ever watch the cutscenes or movies for the other games? Who's your favorite characters in the entire franchise, or just in Automata?

Ooh, a fellow JRPG fan! I loved following all of Persona (at least 4 and 5), and I recently played a great bevy of FF games this year, XV being one of them. Solid game, but I love IX and XIII the most. What other Fire Emblem games have you played? Echoes was great for its Voice acting and story, and gave a decent challenge too.
Corey_Bennett Oct 7, 11:19 AM


My favorite subject/game series to talk about at the moment. Well then, this will be interesting. So how did you get introduced to the crazy beautiful, super-depressing, meme-filled mind of our wonderful Taro-san and his spawn children of great stories/characters coupled with bad to mediocre gameplay (except Automata)? Also, what other games do you like? I'm an avid gamer myself.
