I still hate Brad for pushing for Skyrim so hard, so whatever!

They're basically Nocturne, only easier and with a more traditional story and without demon fusing. Instead, you buy spots on a grid. Both games also feel more linear.

I made it some ways through Digital Devil Saga 2 before getting fed up with the fucking story. I thought it got pretty dumb and the dialog was just completely stiff and wooden. Mechanically, though, both games are pretty great and well worth a shot if you like the combat in SMT games.

The dialogue being stiff and wooden is, well, part of the story
(also ofc the story is pretty dumb, that's part of it's charm!)

DDS and DDS2 are cool as hell and DDS2 has the best soundtrack of any SMT related game.

I feel like there are two conversations and two pieces of information in this thread and neither are communicating with the other.

Also, fwiw to the guy who was asking, Dark Souls 1 ran much better for me without GFWL (and DSfix, obviously). I lagged so bad in blighttown I had to be offline, but now it's... still not great but I'm getting double digit frames.

Random thought: What if the reason why Nick didn't want to air this in the channel was because they didn't want to deal with "Korrasami"?

That's a question I'm having too, only the other way. Korrasami was never an actual thing until season 3 (as far as I've heard), which is when it moved online. Maybe that's why they were so supportive (relatively, of course) of it?

@colourful_hippie: this is a show though. I'm not saying that doesn't happen or anything, but I don't think they'd put it there if they weren't trying to imply something; especially considering how much screen time they have.

Like, why would they have put that scene there if they were just trying to imply they were good friends? The very act of going on a spontanous multi week vacation to the spirit world would make me assume they were good friends anyway. That scene doesn't make sense to me if they're just friends.

@colourful_hippie: I don't know, maybe it's because you liked Mako more than I did, but I thought the best stuff he ever did was with the prince. His and Korra's relationship was awfully done.

That shot with them staring into each others eyes is also basically the same shot they used for P'Li and Zahir, Zhu Li and Varrick and Baatar Jr. and Kuvira.

Like, I'll be honest here. I don't really get how you can see the final scene and think they're just best friends. If it was just them going into the spirit world and holding hands then yes, people would be reaching, but it's not like staring into each other's eyes is conductive to travelling to the spirit world; Didn't Mako and Bolin go in side by side during the fight with Unelaq? You say shippers are having a great time, and they are, but it's not like I was shipping them before this, I honestly can't see it any other way.

I'm not saying anything except the series creator seems on board with it.


That final scene of them staring into each other's eyes isn't weird at all? I don't normally stare into the eyes of my friends for like 5 seconds.

and I did just power through seasons 3 and 4 after hearing about this stuff, it's not like it's completely out of left field. Korra only wrote to Asami, Asami offered to go to the south pole, etc. They didn't touch on it a lot because, well, they didn't touch on any romance stuff a whole lot after season 2's reception was as bad as it was. Wouldn't Korra and Mako vacationing to the spirit world be just as silly in a romantic context?

Some people here need a reality check if they seriously think holding hands and going on a trip together equals romantic relationship.

Anyways, the ending was alright but overall this was a great series.

I'm not going to get into the evidence (of which there is plenty) but one of the series creators linked a vanityfair article on facebook about how progressive the ending is and gay characters in cartoons is cool and yadda yadda yadda

I'm not caught up on Flash, so I haven't gotten there, but Arrow was pretty good. This whole not telling about Sara thing is annoying though, because its going to come out eventually.

Though at some point it feels weird when the two shows don't interact as much as they should. I mean, I was watching Buffy and though I've never actually watched Angel, the two shows interacted as much as they needed to and it was realistic.

Though, I mean, if the League of Assassins is gonna straight up murder 50 people, maybe call Wally? I mean, he can literally be there in a Flash. That's his thing! It's also a little weird that there hasn't been any superpowered people on Arrow... besides Wally, ofc.
