  1. The 3D Models allow the characters to articulate and emote, which is useful in two contexts: combat and cutscenes. Outside of that, they have no real use and take up a lot of processing power besides, so I wouldn't call the 3D-2D switch a flaw so much as an idiosyncrasy of what DQIX is trying to accomplish.
  2. TIL the Ninja Rap from the TMNT movies was apparently written by the legendary Frank Miller.

  3. Combination Attacks. More character interaction. Much more character interaction. The Carver-Maribel concept was amazing but it never went anywhere.
  4. No kidding; I wasn't super-keen on the Eight X Jessica relationship going in, but then she started associating him with her brother and everything just got so much worse. At least the Medea-Hero relationship isn't Medea's Freudian therapy. Eight and Yangus are indeed the best.
  5. I found it a little jarring, but not a real suspension of disbelief breaker. Mostly the 3D-2D split indicates the difference between Important Characters and Unimportant Characters.
  6. There's irony here. Favorites: Bianca, Carver, Maribel, Yangus, Medea, Trode, Nine, Erinn, The Ragin' Contagion, Luceus, King Doric, Robbin' 'Ood Least Favorites: The Order of Zugzwang, King Clavius, Rhapthorne
  7. JonTron tackles Gwyneth Paltrow, and it's glorious:

      I stopped watching Jontron once he stopped talking about video games. Same thing with Brutalmoose once he stopped talking about old PC games. Once BM started making food videos it was all downhill from there.

      I disagree. Both Jontron and BrutalMoose still both produce good videos. Brutalmoose still does video game content.

  8. Hideo Kojima, who doesn't know what Death Stranding is about, is planning sequels.

      Back when the Konami and Silent Hills situation was going down, everyone felt so bad for him and we on his side. I still remember a somewhat viral image of some store putting up a big sign that said “A Hideo Kojima Game” next to a MGS V display because Konami didn’t put it on the box art or in the game or something. The crowd exploded at E3 when he declared he was back and working on a new game.

      People have turned around on him because we’ve been waiting for this thing since like 2016 and we only just found out about the gameplay for it like, what, this year? All we got on this thing were CG trailers for around 3 years. So that’s part of the reason people have gotten more negative about him recently.

      Also, his behavior is making it increasingly apparent that he's the pretentious auteur type.

  9. I, too, am working through the Bible, though I only progress at about three chapters a day (I'm in no rush). I'm also reading an anthropological study on ancient walls. In the past few months, I finished, among other things, Man's Search for Meaning, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Murder on the Orient Express and Beren and Luthien. All told, it's been a productive few months for reading things.
  10. Dragon Quest V really is more about the story than the characters, and a lot of potential character development is wasted because the thrice-accursed bride-choice takes up space with an undercooked romance.
  11. I see the ol' memory hole had a cave-in. Nice find!
  12. Which is silly, anyway, because Bianca is clearly the best girl and all sane people know this. DQV is weird in that it's really more notable for its story arc rather than any particular characters. To the day, I'm still not all that impressed with the Chess Club of Evil.
