Heh neither do i really. But its nice when a game is meant to be visually pleasing, like FF XV or Dragon Quest XI be it an art style or CG. How ever im a fan of old retro style rpgs as well so graphics are not something that is required for me to enjoy a game. I grew up in an era of pixel art graphics. I do really appreciate the style and art that goes into certain aesthetics though and this even harckons back to the SNES era where there was truly beautiful games like Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger with many different color pallets and design.

But yeah modern day graphics are not a necessity for me to enjoy any game today. Hell i would be content playing game in this modern age that has ps2 like graphics as long the story, characters and gameplay mechanics are great, i'll enjoy it.

Seeing these old techs from trails in the sky being re-imagined on cold steel 4 is just what the doctor ordered.

Yeah its a very long game lol, but very rewarding in both gameplay and story. So as they say patience is a virtue. Although it may not seen like it now, the plot is every bit meaty as rest of the elements of the game and you'll soon see that as you progress further. You do not have to do every single quest in the game, i think there is like something around 300 or so. So there is tons and tons of side quests. Even during certain story mile stones, revisiting previous area's will unlock new side quests so you never run out of quests to do. I think the real draw for that game for me was the exploration and i think that is ultimately what kept me to continue playing it.

Xenoblade chronicles 2 is essentially very similar in its scope and scale like the first game, only with a new coat of paint. I feel that xenoblade the 1st game could have been on stronger hardware to give it the edge in graphical display, judging by its amazing visuals breathtaking environments but unfortunately that wasn't the case, but all in all i really enjoyed it and the voice acting also is pretty great to help immerse you into the story more.

Although and i have said this before but i still would of loved for more detailed character models. I felt that part of the game was lacking with its blocky looking character models. But Xenoblade chronicles 2 used more of an animish character style which looks amazing.

Xenoblade Chronicles starts off some what slow with its repetitive system of side quests but once you do get into the thick of the plot line, it really takes off and never stops. The game places a focus on exploration and open world environments that are full of beauty so expect to be spending quite alot of hrs exploring and picking up loot. But its honestly the one game i can truly say where an open world structure is not considered detrimental to the other wise compelling narrative. (Like Final Fantasy XV for example) To many open world games i play places a major emphasis on open world exploration but with many sacrifices to to other things like story. Thankfully that is not the case with Xenoblade Chronicles. Its balanced quite well with its game play mechanics, gorgeous backdrop and visuals and an epic plot line.

Wow, as soon i woke up i was like Damn "There he is". Well thats cool, Maybe Kineta did something behind the scenes? Who knows, but finally you are back. I swear this site has never went through such an elaborate security check before and as a result there was alot of things that has been curropted on the database. Including list designs, clubs, profile BB code, etc. But apparently they have implemented new security to the site so hopefully we don't go through that again. Club useres were really upset caues they had wait literally months before everything got restored. It was a real pain but they finally finished it and all services are working again. You might have to go through and reupload any list styles you used though. But anyways, Welcome back!

In addition where getting Schera Josette to.

Also regarding the account, MAL is going through a major security vulnerability check and there checking all pages of the site. This has honestly been the longest that services have been suspended for, for the entire time that i been here. Well at least our profiles are finally restored, but i hope it doesn't take to much longer for all services to be restored.

Well the hype for one piece far exceeded anyone's expectations. The current arc is just chock full of revelations, bomb shells and major story developments. We are getting introduced to some really major powers in the world that have been dormant for a very long time (although i won't spoil anything) but these new elements of the story may even pose more of a threat then the Yonko's them self's.

So yeah its clear to me oda is really pushing forward with some long over dew story developments and the deeper lore that has been shrouded in mystery for a very long time. You know what im taking bout - the void century, the one piece, revolutionary army, the celestial dragons; are finally becoming the center of the plot.

The set up and build-up to wano is just insanity, far more involved then anyone even thought possible and im almost considering that the climax of the wano arc will lead to some major incident or event that turns the world upside down. Remember White beards Prophecy? The stakes are at an unbelievable high that i think these foreshadowed moments might come sooner then we expect.

Just to give you a little reality check of what to expect when you catch up to the manga. :p

Well shit, I gota hand it to Tomino man. Not only he is responsible for one of the greatest mecha series that incorporated more pseudo science and real mecha story lines as opposed to the previous super sentai robot mainstream that started in the early 70's, which didn't age well and instead the "real mecha genre" became the stable of mecha series there after, but he is responsible for pioneering serialized story lines in anime. I kid you not, not sure bout the manga scene, but in the anime medium, I have watched literally every 70's series at this point and the only one that manage to break away from the traditional episodic format and classic tropes, was Zambot 3. That literally is the FIRST anime EVER to be a serial story line as opposed to the more episodic format. The very next series that came after, just happened to be Future boy conan which also incorporates a serial story line. So in retrospect you could say that Isao takahata was influenced by Tomino's attempt at serial writing and to that extent even leiji matsumuto him self because the first season of yamato was very episodic, the 2nd season and 3rd were definitely not. Wow I really discovered something amazing. I just didn't know this man's influence ran this deep.


It certainly isn't the case with manga though, since yamato and devilman were both serial story lines and even as early as cyborg 009. How ever the anime adaptations of there respective source materials, were not. Its interesting to note though, that this changes quite drastically in Season 2 of yamato and also later on with the harlock saga, all are more serialized. But tomino was the really the first to tackle this type directorial convergence of serialization in the form of an original series.

So i been wanting to tell you though that i been watching alot of recent shows in the last few years that i don't think i ever talked bout. But some of them are absolute anime of the year contenders. So if you get bored of shonen and want to watch something different, i can give you some recommendations.

i imagine fillers excluding right, because word of warning, but if there is any series that was destroyed because of fillers, its naruto shippuuden lol. Canon parts are ok to watch. But the fillers are so nonsensical irrelevant to the actual story, that there just pointless. Though the one silver lining out of all this, was the finale. Studio periot almost delivered like a mad house quality in terms of a final battle and production visuals and a solid ending to make up for how they destroyed the tension and pacing of the 4th shinobi world war arc. Some of the novels were also adapted in the very later parts of the series, and these are actually pretty good, quality wise as well so apparently they did not want to screw up everything.

People generally get a bad taste in there mouth because of the final war arc, due to the fact that the fillers kill the momentum of the story and the tension and you sometimes even forget what the hell is even happening in the present story line. So my advise is just watch the entire war arc to its end (excluding fillers) so you can get a more proper outlook on the final parts of the story. You will not have to worry bout any of this really until the 400+ episodes of shippuuden though. But in any case i just thought i would let you know if you weren't already aware.

Your re-watching naruto to huh? lol what is the occasion?
link9us May 19, 8:51 PM
Well i was afraid there was a certain scene in the manga that would be censored in the anime of one piece because its quite frankly the darkest moment in the story but i am so glad the anime did not censor anything. Man the anime currently is just really going all out. I am just really impressed compared to what people said bout dressrosa, these current arcs TOEI is putting alot more care into creating something with consistent quality. The moment the yonko started powering up looks pretty cool in the manga, but it really popped in the anime just with all the colors, the flashing electricity, solid fluid animation and the blood curteling screams, it just looks so much more cooler.

Btw making good progress on reading OP, you'll catch up soon at this rate.

Yeah I am actually probably one of the few that hasn't seen the origins anime yet so ill be watching that to. Have you seen Gundam Unicorn. Thats a really awesome series. As for manga, i am currently reading Promised never-land, Dr stone and Akatsuki no Yona witch is like a historical fantasy romance, great manga and anime if your into a magical fantasy adventure type story. But anyways i am getting back into Gundam again and trying to catch up with the shows that i haven't seen such as Iron blooded orphans, Build divers and Age.

Just trying to find a cheaper price for some of these, cause i do eventually want to collect all the gundam series and support the company. I think its amazing what sunrise has actually done for all the classical UC series, not only releasing them in blu-ray but for the first time we get to watch them in eng dub to. I kind of grew up with gundam in English with Gundam wing and then later destiny so i appreciate the fact that i can watch them all now in English.
