    I've made a OLD Year's REsolution that I will finally complete Journey's End by the end of this year. I beat first half of the final boss yesterday, which I'd never done before, so that's a good stepping stone into final victory.

    Movie thread

    No. Just... no. All the no. DOCTOR No. Tactical no on my location. A year away? There's still time to stop this from happening, Sega. This is a BAD IDEA.

    Shin Megami Tensei Discussion Thread

    Fandoms, by and large, are becoming infected with entitled behavior and growing vocal populations of "bad seeds" that give the rest a bad name. I see it everywhere I go, except perhaps here in DD. It seems to be a symptom of the times we live in. We have more, and can get it faster, than any generation of fans before us, and that just feeds the fire too fast, it flashes and explodes. Look at all the hoopla over the Avengers 4 trailer, or the other Marvel trailers, and the Star Wars trailers, and so on. It's a growing problem. Even my own furry fandom, which, to be fair, had a bad name to begin with, is getting overwhelmed by a toxic loudmouthed subset. It's too bad that these AGTP folks, who were spending their own time and money to make things that many could enjoy for free (I know I adored their "Live-A-Live" fanslation) have been driven off by the bad apples in the bunch. I don't know what I can do about it either, aside from not being one of these bad apples myself. In the end I guess that's all that can be done. that, and let the teams that make the things we love know they ARE appreciated.

    Bad Movies

    The worst movie I've ever seen and loved for it being so bad was Mortal Kombat Annihilation. This does not count MST3K or RiffTrax features, as my list would balloon to absurd proportions. Also doesn't count certain cult hits I've seen and loved, whether they were defensible on grounds of "so bad it's good" or not. I also give props to the Street Fighter video game adaptation. It's Raul Julia's last performance, and he kills ever scene he's in, despite dying of cancer. Best of all, he did it for his grandson, who loved seeing him in the movie, I'm told. While I'm at it, I might unite my two paragraphs with a bit of Trivia: Did anyone here know that Raul Julia went right from OScar-nominated crime drama "Kiss of the Spider Woman" to a MSTed New York Public Television movie called "Overdrawn at the Memory Bank"? the movie was part of New York Public TV's short lived attempt at adapting novels and short stories to TV, this one based on a work by John Varley.

    What RPG's are you currently playing?

    Coincidentally, I also own an original launch disc of Suikoden 2, and haven't beaten it yet. Perhaps after Vagrant Story I can make the first 3 Suikodens a priority ( i recently collected all the PS2 ones as well). If you want to play Vagrant Story, be prepared for a rollercoaster: It's a shorter-than-average RPG which I've just begun to scratch the surface of. Like Metal Gear Solid a couple years prior, it stars a lone operative in a brief but thrilling adventure through a secluded area. It's also a game where you get scored and rated, and the game invites multiple plays. It also has excellent "virtual cinematography", and each cutscene, while lacking voice, is excellently "blocked" and "shot", in impressive ways. UNlike Metal Gear, however, the game is layered with semi-turn-based combat that doesn't go out of it's way to explain it's subtleties. You get the manual, and a menu-based quick manual in-game to try to help you learn it's ins-and-outs, but no tutorials to speak of. You being a fellow "old hand" at RPGs, I'm certain you can handle it. Just commenting that it is, in fact, a bit needlessly complicated, but so worth playing. It took me a long time to give it more than 45 minutes to impress me, but now I'm glad I'm in it. I rambled quite a bit... sorry.

    Yeah, I gathered. No one is as bad as the Robot Chicken Unicorn. How's Suikoden 2 going so far? Also, did you ever try Vagrant Story? I don't recall.

    What RPG's are you currently playing?

    Clearly you haven't watched enough Robot Chicken. C. George Lowe (Space Ghost Coast to Coast) voices a really pervy unicorn in there! Anyway, I've been inspired by a friend to play my copy of Vagrant Story on PS2 for a while. Aside from one unfortunate Game Over just 20 yards away from a save room, I've been liking it a LOT so far. I admit 21 year old me wouldn't have enjoyed it so much, but fortunately, present-day me does! Pretty valid challenge here, Living and dying by the strength of my timing and skill, to a Hitoshi Sakimoto soundtrack. Any other VS fans out there?

    Here's my entry to the "Smash trailer goes with everything" meme making the rounds on Youtube.

    Music stuck in your head?

    The swallow may fly south with the sun, or the housemartin or the plummer may seek warmer climes in winter, yet these are not strangers to our lands!

    Recently began World of Final Fantasy Maxima Edition for Switch. It's... about what I was lead to expect. It's good... and I love when it nods to the past of the series, like starting you off in Cornelia after the tutorial quests, By far the worst thing about it is Tama's speech. Her voice is fine, but her the-habit of inserting "the" in her sentences at the-every opportunity (like so), oi... makes me want to stop wagging and growl. Nearly everything else is fine by me, even the chibified versions of everything. the pokemon-style mechanics of catching classic Final Fantasy monsters could've maybe done without the extra step of needing to perform a specific action on said monsters to make it catchable ( like some need to be hit with specific types of move, others need to be actually healed or buffed... they get weird). I like the gameplay even though the staking mechanic is odd... and I like the music. Specifically the town plaza music is a big hit with me. Also played Deltarune Chapter 1 recently. Yes, I admit it: I'm Undertale fan trash.

    What's New with you?

    Got a few minutes before my weekly D&D to peek in and say I'm haven't rolled over and died yet! I've been playing a gnome sorceror, level 3, named Warren Pibble, but goes by "Pebble". He drinks like a fish, usually seen with a fireball in one hand and a stein in the other. He's 4-foot-someodd, blond with a ponytail and got a shirt like Willow from the 80's fantasy movie. 'round his neck is a magical focus device, an orb on a gold chain. Seems every other session I end up setting the enemy on fire somehow.

    I'm sorry Demo... I'm sure I know the feeling somewhat. I lost both my parents this year, one in Feb, one in June. It's depressing.
