People get judged for everything. Comic Books are a much older medium than video games or movies, but if you tell someone you like comics, they'll still judge you for it. The thing about those other mediums is that they're so prevalent that you have to get a little bit more specific before the judgements creep up. Nobody will think twice if you tell them you watch a lot of movies, but if you tell them you watch a lot of foreign films, sci-fi, romantic comedies, or documentaries, then suddenly they'll start to make some judgements.

Trix are just Kix, but with food coloring. This way they look like one of the cool sugary cereals like Fruity Pebbles or Fruit Loops, but actually aren't so bad for you. You're adult brain has probably just recognized how bad Trix have always tasted. This is my conspiracy theory.
All I know about you is that you have excellent taste in video game forums, but despite this limited knowledge, I'm fairly certain you deserve a better relationship than that. Don't be scared of breaking up with him because he's the first person to make you feel this way. At this point it's an inevitability anyways, every moment you stay with him is time wasted on a guy who doesn't appreciate you. Meanwhile there is someone out there who will care about you, will appreciate you, and will go down on you, but as long as you stay with this dude you'll never find that person.
While I'm in total agreement about this part of the game being terrible, I think maybe we're getting a little carried away. The vast majority of this content is optional, and it doesn't add as much time as people seem to be suggesting. I was 46 hours in when I got to the twist, did literally everything I could do, and beat the game at 62. So 16 extra hours for me, about 2-3 hours of that was new content, and I'd say maybe 4 hours of that was recycled content that I had to do, the rest was just me doing all the optional bosses, which I recommend people don't do. Just set the encounters to -100%, awaken the crystals, and get to the end.
Yeah I finally wrapped it up and man... just man. I didn't mind the boss rush the first time, it was kind of interesting getting to fight all of those dudes over again at a higher level when I had access to all of the jobs, which I think is a testament to how well the bosses were designed in the first place. But then it happens again, and again, and again. Ugh. By halfway through the second cycle I'd already mastered every job I ever intended too, and eventually the fights stopped even giving experience! The annoying part is that the game was already long enough. 40 hours is huge, even compared to jrpg's from back in the day, you can beat most of those in like 20. I really wonder if maybe everybody's just ruining it for themselves by doing all the side bosses every time. It couldn't take much more than an hour or so to just awaken all the crystals, and with the lack of experience, you aren't really getting anything out of the fights anyways aside from some semi interesting character stuff.
I don't want to speculate about behind the scenes stuff (though that's exactly what I'm about to do), but I really wonder if the game just didn't have the budget or the time to match the scope in their heads. I can't imagine that this was a design decision they would've made if they'd had the resources to just add a few more dungeons. Just seems like a shame that they have to resort to stuff like this in order to make their game feel "complete" to them, presumably due to how much it costs to generate assets compared to the old days. None of the games I played back in the snes era ever recycled content like this, and while this is a particularly egregious example of it, it's certainly not the first or only game to do this in the past few years.
Scarlett looks hilarious. I can only imagine how stupid she felt during the shooting.
Look like what? Pose how? Pretend what?
Right, look, cool. Badass. Like you're pretending to be a plane in slow mo... no no, you're R. Kelly, slowly raising your hands up to the crowd. Yeah, that's it.
We're going for halfway between Jesus and R. Kelly here Scarlett. But with guns.
I think she nailed it.
I really want to play this game, but I never hear people say anything nice about the story, and I don't think I could enjoy a game that long with a bad story.
Well, I've also heard that the characters are fun / goofy. That could go a long way if done right.
That wine clip up there is really tempting me.
