  • I tried to be somewhat constructive and not just rant negatively, because there were some things I liked. Those technical issues though... it's just not much fun to hear a boss's disintegration at the end of the battle be complete long before the v…
  • Huh. Fire Emblem Echoes is definitely distinct. If I was playing the original NES version it might be more obvious whether this was yet another NES 'what a difference!' sequels, but even now the ability to look around environments and some kind of…
  • It's probably because I tried every character, but I didn't have a problem when the available options decreased. Plus there's that bonus experience awarded after every battle, which won't save a character you never use (La Hire wasn't as good as th…
  • GameCube will be popping up in a follow-up poll on more recent consoles that I put up near the end of the month. There's no hard and fast rule to this, but since PS2 did come out a year earlier, it's not completely nonsensical.

  • Yeah, Growlanser. Scheduling that one has proved to be quite a challenge. It's still on the list though, and it WILL happen, though I don't yet have a date.
  • Speaking of Disney, I gave The Aristocats (1970) a shot for the first time in many years. I don't think anyone would try arguing that this is Disney's finest hour, because it certainly isn't. The laidback pace makes it hard to get deeply involved,…
  • I do find Jeanne d'Arc quite good in most respects. The flexibility of the characters, the variety of maps, the relative speed with which battles are carried out, the presence of numerous voluntary-yet-rewarding maps and the relatively straightforw…
  • I've seen a number of things in the theater lately, but Your Name isn't playing around here and my memories of Ghost in the Shell aren't strong enough for me to want to see Scarlett Johannson stuck in a whole bunch of CG that tries to recreate the a…
  • Frankenstein vs. Baragon (1965), also known as Frankenstein Conquers the World, is one of the weirder kaiju movies out there. Yes, I realize that sets the bar pretty damn high. Apparently its pre-production involved Willis O'Brien of King Kong fam…
  • Huh. Thanks, Jeanne d'Arc? After fighting that guy Talbot five times I don't even get the satisfaction of killing him for good. Oh well. It's enjoyable in most respects, I have to say. Certain characters are overdone with their text inflections…
  • Meanwhile, we additionally have a new Etrian Mystery Dungeon. I can easily restrain myself from seeking it out, but it shows the 3DS is doing just fine for new software at the moment.
  • The Battle of Stalingrad (1949-50) is one of the few Soviet movies I've seen. The experience was certainly interesting, but did not create a sudden desire for me to rush out and see more, particularly not from this era. You want select clips? T…
  • I could contribute that simply playing the game requires little knowledge of Japanese - I did it 16 years ago on a North American SNES. Or I could attempt to steer discussion here back toward the appearance of this (so far Japan-only) compilation f…
  • Alright then, I powered through almost all of Roger Moore's Bond output. Let's see here... Live and Let Die (1973) is not a very good Bond movie. It feels dated in many respects due to the filming on US locations of the time, with actors wearing …
  • Time for some results, it would seem. Moderate 828 56.67% Hard 383 26.21% Easy 109 7.46% Very Hard 93 6.37% Very easy 48 3.29% Total Votes 1461
  • I had my fill of Sword City the first time, thank you very much. Someone new to it would have a much better time.
  • Doomsday (2008) I saw because it's from a director whose previous work I found effective and interesting. Dog Soldiers and The Descent aren't necessarily great horror movies, but both did something interesting and had me caring about what was happe…
  • I see it from numerous people, that The Ring is somehow even considered Gore Verbinski's best movie (and considering he's mostly known for a bunch of Pirates of the Caribbean stuff, that's fair). I wasn't frightened and it made little impression on…
  • Timothy Dalton's tenure as James Bond only lasted two movies, followed by the longest break between installments in the series before Pierce Brosnan took over. I'd never seen Dalton's entries though, and decided to give them a shot. The Living Day…
  • The cursed thing is surprisingly addictive. Though anyone who's not interested in Dragon Ball will probably be bored super fast.
  • I don't see enough adjustments and tweaks to make me want to spend another 100 hours suffering pain. This definitely sounds like the better version for anyone who needs to experience Stranger though.
