#1944656 Whose Top 100 RPG list was better?

Posted by Dave on 24 May 2017 - 02:33 PM

Huh. Both have FF VI at number 2. That's actually what I went in with to decide which list I liked better.


And both kind of trade placings on Bloodborne and Dark Souls, with one being in the teens and the next being in the twenties.


I'm going to have to give it to IGN for getting Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door in there.

#1944033 Most Powerful Scene in Kingdom Hearts

Posted by Dave on 20 May 2017 - 12:57 PM

The ending of the 100 Acre Wood in KH2 still gets to me. Pooh trying to find a way to stop Sora from leaving again is a message that kind of becomes more poignant as I get older; a lot of the friends I've had I don't keep in contact with, and unfortunately some of them I forget. Not out of a selfish dismissal, but, like Sora, your life takes you in different directions than the ones your friends might be taking, and staying close simply isn't a practical possibility. It becomes even more powerful if you consider that Christopher Robin, who was Pooh's best friend, no longer comes to visit him, and now he's trying to come to grips with possibly losing another close friend in Sora. 


To which Sora offers a solution that seems so simple it might almost be considered trite, yet still offers some solace and wisdom; the idea that just because you don't see your old friends all the time, doesn't mean that they're really gone. You still have your memories, the feelings that you shared towards them, and as long as you keep those in your heart, you still possess a lasting friendship. And that's a thought that I personally find very comforting. 

#1944031 What's Your Favorite Version of Zelda?

Posted by Dave on 20 May 2017 - 12:31 PM

The Twilight Princess Zelda is probably my favorite. I like her stature, her stoic nature, and her ability to stay professional in spite of knowing better than anyone the gravity of the situation. It felt like she was more a Queen and actual ruler of Hyrule than other iterations. 

#1943124 Who's your favorite Disney Mother?

Posted by Dave on 14 May 2017 - 05:29 PM

Perdy is pretty awesome. Not only did she raise 15 well behaved puppies, she adopted 84 more, and was tough enough to brave the wilderness to get them back.

Wooo! Happy birthday, Lea!

Well, If Kirran and Grant say so, then it must be true!

And yet, Sora and Riku accomplished more with their lack of training than either Aqua or Terra did with a lifetime of supposed experience.

#1937889 Which Kingdom Hearts character would be the best Class President?

Captain Hook knows how to whip a crew into shape.

#1933173 It's Not My Fault, and I Don't Care Anyway

Posted by Dave on 14 March 2017 - 05:24 PM


This is the first feature film I was a crew member on, and I don't feel too ashamed in trying to promote it. It's now available on iTunes for rent or purchase, and I believe it is coming out on other distributors as well, though I don't know the specifics off hand.

#1933158 What Smell Are You Grateful For?

Posted by Dave on 14 March 2017 - 04:09 PM

I found this list while browsing the internet, and it gave you 30 things and subjects to think about what you're grateful for, and I thought I would try and make some topics about it. Mostly as a way to count our blessings, simple and trite though they might be.


The first one: What smell are you grateful for?


I actually really like the smell of fresh coffee. Actual effects of caffeine aside, I find the aroma is a good way to start the morning with. There's something oddly comforting about it, an ironic soothing considering the whole point of consuming it is to become less soothed. 

#1932727 Nomura confirms multiple playable characters for FF7R

Remember when every Final Fantasy had multiple player characters, and it wasn't something that was a pleasant surprise?

#1932605 Once Upon a Fantasy RP

             "Hm. Well, the only power I have, sir, is the power to use a pen, and push a mower. I'd eat a decent meal over mowing someone's lawn any day, but I'd rather starve than desert my personal projects. The way you talk... you're an artist of some sorts as well, aren't you?" 


Myles was pleased that Zachary was able to deduce he was an artist; not only did it mean that Myles was succeeding in carrying himself in a manner that signified intellect, pastiche, and high brow grandeur, but it also meant that at the very least he found himself in the company of a layman (one who who even confess to mowing lawns, no less!) who was capable of recognizing greatness when it was in the same room as him. "An artist, though I'm inclined to believe I'm more than one of 'some sorts.' Being the only one that this town has ever produced, I should think I should be considered something of a marvel." Loathe though he might have been to admit it, Myles found himself enjoying the conversation after being cooped up in his room for so long, and at least this Zachary was willing to listen. "And you,  you mentioned your pursuits with a pen?" he asked as the car pulled into the diner. "What prose do you produce? I'm certain a man like you can do more than recall gripping memoirs of mowed lawns."


"Well, now, Mr. Myles, I'm sure we want to get to the diner without a whole slew of police officers at our heels for slaughtering all of these pedestrians, wouldn't you say?" said Scarlet.


Myles gave an airy laugh. "As a car filled with writers and artists, some would make the argument that if the police aren't after we aren't being pursued by police, we simply aren't doing our jobs, no?" he asked as he stepped out of the car, following Scarlet to the diner.


#1932376 I need opinions

Posted by Dave on 10 March 2017 - 11:23 PM

The first thing I would say is that you don't need the sped up set up of equipment at the top. The main thing people want to see when looking at your reel is the finished content, and if they have to wait to get it it instead of seeing your winning shots right off the top, it might not hold their interest.


Second, you might consider trimming down some of the shots you have for Hunting Red. There's quite a few shots there that are very impressive, but there's also some superfluous ones (the WS of the hooded figures at 0:56 goes for a bit long). It's worth saying though that the shot following behind her at 1:06 is very nice.


The footage from Strange Brew and Between Us is actually probably my favorite pieces. The framing is very nice, the lighting is well done, and you do a good job of showcasing them for the right period of time while still showing that you know what you're doing. Though you might be able to afford to trim a few of the shots  from Between Us, as it runs very long compared to the other pieces.


Very well done all together, though, and good for you for putting together a reel.

#1931263 "DuckTales" (2017) First Look Trailer

Posted by Dave on 05 March 2017 - 10:49 PM

I'm happy that they went with giving Huey, Dewey, and Louie something of their own personalities, rather than just being identified by their shirts. Also happy that Webby is more upbeat this time around other than just being insufferably "cute."

#1931201 Which Organization XIII weapon is your favourite?

I dig Lexeaus's axe sword thing.
