I’m not sure if I share the same sentiment about people rebuying the ME collection, but I get ya. I think it’d be a good way for some people to experience the ME with the DLC’s if they never bothered to get it before, maybe. The ending is an absolute disaster as you say. There are parts of ME 3 that I remember liking but you’d be hard pressed to find someone defending the ending. It’s pretty darn infamous. The Mass Effect dialogue wheel is reductive compared to how they used to do it. Convsersation stops and you’re given a vertical list of responses with the sentences typed out telling you exactly what you’re going to say. Like how they did it with KOTOR and DA: Origins (which I actually started playing recently). I suppose it’s also the same way in Fallout 3 and New Vegas. In those games, the protagonist is silent. With the Mass Effect wheel, you get vague descriptors for what your character is going to say voice. And then your character acts on your option, and you sometimes go “whoa, I didn’t mean to say that.” It’s just silly. And lol the animation bugs and quirks for Andromeda were a goldmine. Andromeda was just an absolutely barren game in terms of interesting content. As you said, it could’ve have explored the ethics of people from the Milky Way galaxy venturing to another one and claiming it for their selves. There’s a line or two giving attention to that idea depending on a choice you make at the end of the game. But it’s really nothing more than lipservice. I was massively disappointed at the extreme lack of interesting new race to meet and converse with considering you’re exploring a new galaxy. Hell, the main villain race, the Kett, just seems to take ideas from the Reapers. Not to mention how boring they boring and uninteresting they were as villains. Lol yea, that’s the problem with fighting games. You have to dedicate a lot of time to them. The weird thing about me is I like picking up new fighting games, but I usually scrape myself to… maybe an intermediate level for myself (if even that, lol) before letting go of it. I guess that speaks a lot about me, lol. I do quite like Soul Calibur and I did enjoy what I played of Dragon Ball FighterZ. Now that you mention DB FighterZ, I probably should take another whack at it. I remember it being fun. And speaking of fighting games, I’ve had an eye on Guilty Gear Strive since it came out. Have you played any of Guilty Gear?


I suppose so. As long as the monster that is Disney owns Star Wars, there’s likely not going to be anything interesting coming. Anything that was even remotely interesting set up in Last Jedi was promptly destroyed in Rise of Skywalker. It’s still hilarious to me how the movie couldn’t even a conjure a reason for why Palpatine comes back. He just does because they needed a big baddie since Snoke was offed, lol. Yea, I do think a modern Star Wars RTS would probably be pretty cool. There are some older ones like Empire at War or Galactic Battlegrounds if you’re interested in those sorts of games. I’ve never played Dark Forces nor Jedi Outcast but I probably should. One final note I want to make on the potential for a KOTOR 3 is I’m scared that they would fall back on shit introduced and written in KOTOR 2. The second game kind of demonizes the very concept of the Force.



It basically is a grimmer Pokemon as you said since you’re collecting demons and angels, stuff of that sort. And it usually involves taking arms against the world’s respective deity or god, something along those lines, lol. I never bothered trying Sword and Shield. The last mainline Pokemon game I even tackled was Pokemon White, the generation with ice cream and garbage bag Pokemon… How goes the search through Digimon or the like? I’ve heard decent things about the Digmon Story games if you’re interested. Haven’t played them, though. As for the Diamond and Pearl remake, it’s weird. It seems that the character models look fine and have normal proportions when you’re in battle, at least as far as I’ve seen. But then everyone’s reduced to some chibi form when you’re in the overworld. Like…. You have those normal character models, I’m not sure what the deal is.


It saddened me when you mentioned Okami and God Hand. But at least some of those people went on to PlatinumGames. And yea, man. I shrug everytime a new open world or sandbox game is announced. I’ll say that Death Stranding is an interesting example of one as the predominant experience of it is centered on the moment to moment gameplay of traversing the terrain. Having to keep an eye on the weight of the cargo you carry, keeping your balance and shifting your weight, the struggle of going up inclines. The detail put into that game moment to moment is weird but endearing. There was a certain comfortable pace to be found in delivering packages and going from A to B, without mentioning my problems with the aggravating narrative. Since you mention Dying Light, are you looking forward to Dying Light 2? I imagine you’re probably playing different games now given that I’m an asshole and took forever to respond back. But how is RE Village and Rogue Galaxy? This month I finished Sekiro and thoroughly enjoyed it. The final boss whipped me into shape, that’s for sure. I recently started playing Dragon Age: Origins (I got it for 2 bucks on sale on Steam) and I’m enjoying it. I generally like the party of characters you interact with and how they respond to your actions throughout the game.


8 months later, 3 or so sizeable updates later and Cyberpunk is still broken and underwhelming as far as I hear. It’s a disaster. It still sold about 13 million copies before the end of 2020 but I’m know CD Projekt expected more as they have reported as such. Nice, I’ll check out RagnarRox and Spherehunter. Thanks! I’ve actually watched some of Noah Caldwell-Gervais’s content and have enjoyed what I’ve seen of him. I enjoyed recently watching his KOTOR video and his Mass Effect videos.

I see, hope you’re doing well, man. Were you able to get some more rest during the summer? Did you take classes during the summer? I’ve been ok. Just working while I try to find something better for myself. I graduated in the spring semester with my bachelor’s but struggling to find an entry position in where I want to apply myself. I’ve been seriously considering whether I want to apply myself for striving for graduate school but I simply have not made a decision for myself. My goal right now is probably just to save up and put in more hours, I guess. This probably bears repeating as it’s been a bit since I gave a response, I hope you’re doing well, mate.

Thank you for the share of yours. About the movie, I think it is more on the experimental side than an artistic one. Got to experience it someday.
SgtBaitMan Jul 26, 2021 10:34 PM
Well, you should have been more decisive with your reply, since this is the World Wide Web, I'm the one started it, and there was a non-existent chance of sarcasm within my prior words.

By the way, this is rather off the mARK, but I'm interested in your account name. Quite teenage-wasteland, yet still meaningful if you seriously think of it.

Another thing has bugged me. Is your forum picture Jim Carrey?
SgtBaitMan Jul 26, 2021 1:29 PM
Given how you've harshly criticised romance and many other genres, I expected something more from your most famous review, but it is the most generic thing possibly being spoken of the dark side of any work, including Monogatari Series. Still, it is interesting to see someone having a critical tendency and being that committed to one specific genre. Hope you could find something genuinely enjoyable.

Ha ha what a story, Mark.

I did both my undergraduate and postgrad degrees in film, with an emphasis on screenwriting. So I'm mostly looking for media related jobs/internships in general. It's been difficult since I have no prior professional work experience, but I'm trying not to give up. Don't wanna become a NEET lol.
LoveLikeBlood Jul 23, 2021 2:54 AM
I'm mostly just looking for work in writing. Seeing if there are any internships open too. Haven't really had any luck though.
LoveLikeBlood Jul 22, 2021 5:38 PM
Doing alright. Mostly just trying to get my life together now that I've recently graduated. You?

I don't actually mind Subaru angst; it's something that sets him apart from other isekai protagonists and that part where it touches on his relationship with his parents really said more about the isekai element than a lot of those anime do. For me it's more of the tell don't show way a lot of stuff is conveyed that makes the world less interesting than a show that actively explores it.

Owl House is only about a third of the way through Season 2 so far, but even at this point there's a lot I adore about as a story in general but in particular comparison to the bulk of anime isekais. A distinct macabre setting (not just JRPG land #3545),
a distinct magic system that's well conveyed/built upon, a lack of the typical "otaku pandering" with the harem set, being very funny but also having momentum to its story, a focus on humanizing its characters through ongoing arcs, mysteries about the universe that keep you guessing, looking consistently nice (and even great in key moments, no production crash here), addressing the human world aspect multiple times (most isekais forget about this) and positive LGBT rep.

Disney's a huge corporation with a lot of different smaller companies as a part of it. And I've appreciated what their cartoon division has done for a while. Wander Over Yonder was an incredibly fun and zany show that got caught way too short. It's their TV division that's produced what I think is Disney's best series of the last decade: Gravity Falls.
Through its 40 episodes it's incredibly funny, creative, and heartfelt with a lot of mysterious elements regarding certain characters and plot elements that kept the fandom making wild guesses for years with satisfying payoff. It's because it was so successful that future Disney shows like the 2017 DuckTales and Amphibia (which is also an isekai) had some staff from GF cross over for similar kinds of shows. Of them, Owl House is the one that's caught the most of the hype wave.

Perhaps a big point of comparison: the creators/writers of The Owl House really pushed for LGBT representation in their series and so far it's along a really strong path as being a pivotal relationship. Meanwhile Star Wars Rise of Skywalker was like "here's your representation! It's these two characters you instantly forgot about kissing in the background of a shot so they can be easily edited out for Singapore."

Oh wow, you haven't gotten back to me since I mentioned I was reviewing Love Live over three years ago, wrote 15 more reviews since then you might appreciate. Man time flies.

Just read your Re:Zero review and while I don't agree with everything as there were some neat moments, I see where you're coming from. The pacing felt glacial, it felt like they had a waifu surplus with the witches and so much of the world is conveyed through characters talking at you rather than actually exploring the world.

"Isekai continues to prove its worthlessness as a genre. It is funny because I know that there is potential for this genre. Shows and films like Now and Then, Here and There, and Spirited Away show that isekai can be amazing when done correctly. But modern writers care too much about money, too much about appealing to their audience that they fail to create anything interesting."

In that forum, I brought up Owl House for being a western example that avoids many of the worst tendencies Japanese ones tend to fall into. I'm going to go on a limb and say Amphibia is also a good example even if I haven't seen it yet.

Hmm, there are individual songs i like from every ost. But i think 79 has the most number of songs i like. Seed, turn A gundam, gundam wing all are great too. I haven't actually seen anyone of them ;^) i just like to collect soundracks. Turn A gundam ost kinda makes me wanna watch the series tho.

Wbu? What ost and what specific tracks do you think are best in the entire gundam?
