Looking forward to JUMPING FLASH. :schnoz:

Sure I'm on board for that. Smart game picks already. I wonder what the rest of the lineup will look like.

Oh yeah, definitely, Zelda II is unloved but it also pioneered a lot of stuff. It was clearly the inspiration for Shadow of the Colossus. :iva:

It's the first Souls game! Just look at the maddeningly cryptic dialogue:

My John Carpenter musical kick, particularly the Lost Themes album, has made me realize that part of the reason the FF7 soundtrack might be so resonant with me is because of it's reliance on similar synth sounds! John Carpenter and FF7, two things I didn't previous associate but now can't separate because FF7 is the John Carpenter score of Final Fantasy soundtracks.

Wasn't sure where to put this, but I've noticed it and then saw this article today. So, here's a gaming trend this year I'm having a BAD reaction to:

What’s an extra day of playing a hot new game early worth to you? What’s the worth of two days? It’s become more and more common for video game publishers to charge players for the chance to play games early. Or maybe they’re just sticking everyone else who pays a meager $60 with a later release date. This practice has gone from rare to common this season.

It goes on to list numerous examples of different "early" access special edition deals out there which are gross on their face imo, as proven and compounded by the dishonesty of selling it under the guise of something else, the umbrella of "special edition" pre-orders or whatever. Could this please go the way of the pay-to-win loot box, or is it the new normal like DLC? Just make something and sell it for Christ's sake. I'm glad Red Dead 2 isn't doing this (amazingly, since they have every other scummy pre-purchase offer out there), but it's going to hit home when I game I actually want to play does it (not that I'll jump or be pained to wait the extra time, it'll just give me a reason to squawk =). So as not to put all the onus on the developers and publishers, can we also stop being stupid morons wasting money stupid, worthless shit? Wait, that's what games ARE? Fuck.

It's like I'm reading the theory outlining a Berserk happy ending; it would certainly be convenient if they could somehow, like magically with the assistance of a witch or elf sovereign or something, separate and slay the evil spiritual being inhabiting the the physical host vessel without harming the Boy. Sounds good to me, though.

Fingers crossed! :griffnotevil:

interesting that SotN's maker admitted they were really trying to copy Zelda's RPG elements and item distribution (and Zelda II is another underappreciated entry in this particular side-scrolling action/exploration genre).

Oh yeah, definitely, Zelda II is unloved but it also pioneered a lot of stuff. It was clearly the inspiration for Shadow of the Colossus. :iva:

Done with Memories of Ice(absolutely LOVED this one) and am now on to House of Chains. I don't think MOI will be topped though. Will have to see.
I'm at Reaper's Gale. And I can tell you just this: every book tops the previous one. Period. Just let that sink for a moment.
Now, some people don't like House of Chains. It takes some kind of "detour" at the beginning. It basically introduces a character that I won't name. In my opinion, it is one of the best characters ever. The story keeps going, though. And it reaches a big pivotal point for the first half of this series. Also the ending has a big revelation that beautifully connects with something in Deadhouse Gates. You'll know when you get to it, and you'll just smile. I think you'll love it. Enjoy the journey, friend!

what would happen if  a God hand member  where to die

We'll find out! :guts:

Femto's case is different because he was incarnated. I would imagine that if he were extracted from that body of flesh, it would turn into the form of the Moonlight Boy we're familiar with.

So is the IOE close to the vortex of souls or is it on  a way deeper level in the astral world? Cause I always thought it was apart of the IOE in some way.

Vortex of Souls
(Abyss)
Idea of Evil

They are closely related, but different things. The Idea of Evil is a being that dwells in the abyss, at the bottom of the astral world. It is shown manipulating the Vortex of Souls in Ep 83. The Vortex is the dark side of an ocean of souls of tormented humans. The text for the scene in question is here: http://skullknight.net/idea
