And yes Tokyo Xanadu isn't in a persona 5/ps4 level of graphics. It could have been a ps3 game for sure. (Which p5 was too but it sure runs smooth) This was originally a Vita game after all. It's so good you don't notice though. At least I don't. I am hating not having any more vacation days til after Jan 1 I want to get some more marathon sessions in this thing!
Picked up six guides I needed..including tales of vesperia and brigandine legend of forsena that have been somewhat elusive at decent prices. Got vespy for 16 and brig for 35. Lunar 1 guide for like 17, I'd forgot that wasn't harcover like lunar 2.
I don't like him either and hopes he continues to grow in the next one. I hated him so much in TFA but felt like there was a lot of improvement here. I hope we don't see too much love story stuff between Rey and Finn in 9. It works better as an underlying thing.
Finn and Rey are def the love story of this trilogy. He was leaving so Rey wouldn't return to a hopeless situation. But when presented with a plan that could work he did and I liked that. This director redeemed Finn for me a little...a little. I'm still back and forth on him but I liked this Finn better. He saw the big picture and didn't back down...even willing to sacrifice himself. Realizing this is bigger than getting in bed with Rey at some point. She loves him too. As evident by her telling chewie to relay a message, and the way she watched him cover rose with the blanket. I'm afraid Abrams is gonna mess him up again. I wish Johnson was staying for ep9
ahh so you have gotten to the point i didnt want to talk about too much til you were there, the tone change and the way it makes you feel is real and i thought it was very well done. i lost a part of my own will for awhile right along with the bros, but it comes back, and its worth seeing through. so amazing after you finish and look back on it.
nice, i really cant imagine you'll be dissapointed, im still really enjoying it alot and though it isnt dripping with so much style you think you are gonna get it on you through the tv like persona its still really good.
Poe is definitely meant to be the new Han, i saw that setup in TFA. they matured him a lot in this one, and i liked that. I liked Finn a little more in this one, he was my least favorite in TFA, trying to inject kevin hart into my star wars, no thanks. they serioused him up a little and gave him more resolve and he grew and i liked that, Rose, who was kinda ok i guess, eh... was able to break him out of his tunnel vision Rey is all that matters views and look at the big picture. i didnt take it that he felt anyting for rose like he loves Rey. that all seems to be on Rose's side, and i think she knows his heart is somewhere else.
ive JUST seen the film.. and in reading some easter egg articles on IGN i am very disapointed to see Abrams is coming back for ep9.. i think i like this one better than TFA...too many things in TFA seemed like they just didnt have a plan and so Johnson just ended them here, and now Abrams comes back, im now afraid this trilogy isnt going to be cohesive at the end with them back and forthing them.
in a day or two and after a second viewing some thoughts may change, but here are fresh impressions just seeing it.
reys parents... there was a lot of theory going around that Iden Versio, the character from the battlefront 2 campaign was her mother.. but that clashed with interviews from ridley and driver saying it isnt important to anyone but rey, that they arent anyone of consequence like people think. it makes sense, anakin and his mother were nobodies, no great lineage to the jedi etc. the interviews said she was determined to fight and be something more in spite of them, so if they were just junk traders on jakku that fits. some are already saying kylo lied and something will be revealed but i think this is it on that front.
snoke.. kylo's intentions never seemed to be to usurp him so that was odd.. and though i suspected he would turn on him that was a great twist... the breaking of the lightsaber very symbolic that the time of the old is over and the time of the new is here.
the force itself.. maybe my favorite reveal? luke had learned that light and dark, the force itself...was not of the jedi or the sith, it simply was, and they were just vessels that harnessed it. it will be interesting to see what rey learns from the ancient texts.
yoda!!! and they used the puppet, that was awesome. real original trilogy yoda that even hit him with the cane..loved it. he knew the books were gone, but needed luke to move forward.
luke... i liked luke in this movie, i thought Hamill did pretty well. .i expected we would lose him here, "the last jedi" pretty much was a giveaway to that i guess looking back, as rey wasnt going anywhere. the holo projection since he had been cut off from the force for awhile possibly and his advanced age perhaps was too much a toll.. and the "see you around kid" was almost han like, sweet. if he isnt a force ghost in the next movie that will be a super wasted opportunity the way obi-wan did it for him.
Princess Leia (im with Lor San Tekka, she'll always be royalty to me) what i expected, she was really good. i loved the scene with her and holdo where they were talking about poe and she was like i like him, and she was like i do too, so much Han in him, and i think he reminds her of herself in her princess days. i expected her to die, possibly along with luke in some way as last i heard her family wasnt keen on CGI'ing her into ep9, but maybe thats changed. what i dont want, is her only being mentioned. ewww. but the force thing in space?? hated that.. its always been said she was force sensitive and hence why she senses it in rey right away and knows she is special, but not adept in its use like luke was. even in the old EU it talks about how she just didnt have the talent to wield it as a jedi. but that was a little too much. maybe they could pass it off that at the moment of life or death it was instinct.. but still.
Finn.. i thought he might actually bite it there.. and i thought maybe rose had bit it, and died after confessing she loved him, i hope they arent going to do a love triangle, that would just be awful, it was cute early on with luke and han with leia before luke found out, but in this I cant see that not being awful. i also dont think there is anything there for finn, definitely was more an appreciation thing for him.
broom kid at the end. i dont think they are saying this particular kid is going to be something, i think its more saying there will always be luke skywalkers out there, people from humble beginnings looking up at the stars and dreaming of a life of something more. though most of the rebellion has been lost, there will be others who will rise.
i really expected the idea of balance to be that ben and rey would have to work together to end the first order and restore peace and balance, light and dark, and i didnt sense anything sexual there, rey seemed more embarassed or put off by shirtless kylo than it being a sex thing. she seems pretty attached to finn.
so many throwbacks.
yoda, the way luke tells kylo if you strike me down like obi wan told vader, the scene where kylo has his hand on the trigger and it does the cutaways to he and leia like luke and vader, the taking rey to snoke, the remote release of the handcuffs, putting the lightsaber on the arm of his chair. and several others.
i liked this movie quite a bit, i think i like it better than TFA right now.. but i need a day or two and to see it again maybe.
My post office and the one next town over lets me send games media. Games are fine, just no consoles or accessories is always that they say. Maybe it's not in the written rules but it's been my experience. I don't really do it much because flat rate is not much more now but used to it was great for larger shipments. That huge box I sent donlad was media.
My only issue with lydie and suelle is that it's part 3 of the mysterious trilogy. I know you don't have to have to have played Sophie and firis but seems like maybe wait and start the next one ? But they did nights of azure 2 also.. they want to be on the platform and I guess this was their best way.
