  1. I haven't played Kingdom Hearts 1 or 2, but this was one badass video. Square needs to just start making badass movies like Advent Children. Hook up with Frank Miller and out badass 300 or something.

    I would really love to see more of Square's CGI talent put to use in the film industry.


    And I think they might have to ditch the Disney worlds sooner or later in the Kingdom Hearts series.

  2. My friend had it and let me borrow it once. I got pretty far into the game but never actually completed it. It had some great music, awesome storyline, and addictive game play in it. It's a shame though, my friend let someone else he knew borrow the game. That person moved away and he never saw it again.

  3. I saw this movie at 10:30 last night with 9 of my friends. I have to say that I never really has as much fun watching an action movie before as I did watching 300. I loved the guitar riffs playing during some of the battle scenes and the creative Persian monsters that saturated the screen at some points in the film. The film does take a little while to get going, but I don't want to say too much about it.

    The bottom line is:

    This film was metal.

  4. Every time I see an example of fan art my appreciation for the source material depreciates. Some of this fan art, but it begs the question... "Why can't any of the assholes come up with their own ideas." Granted, after spending 30 seconds in their Deviant Art gallery's it's obvious that their ideas are just recycled clones of their favorite games, manga, movies, etc.

    But then again, it's always heartwarming to see a nice surreal drawing of pyramid head on DA you almost believe that "they get it."

    90% of the fan art you see is just surface, and it kind of bugs that meaningless drawings of Naruto can get so much damn praise.

    But I'm being overly cynical, fan art is an excellent way for an artist to experiment and flex their creative muscles. Hence my sig. ;)

    But that girls of Final Fantasy one made me die a little on the inside.


    Actually all of the pictures SVdoctorD posted make me die on the inside.

    ...Thanks :'(.

    Anyway. I appreciate fan art because it shows how big of an impact the source material had on the artist and because of this, some extremely beautiful pieces of art come into light. I do sort of agree with you though, a lot of fan art isn't based off of the artist's imagination, but it's also called fan art for a reason - they don't come up with the ideas! Visual art also doesn't have to "mean" anything, it's just nice to look at every once in awhile.

    Then again you probably have a completely different perspective on fan art then I do anyway.

  5. I basically just search deviantArt and come up with some extremely nice ones.

    A few of my favorites:

    There are plenty more...

    Also, there was this one artist I used to always check out about 6 years ago on The Grand Adventures Zelda website called "Min", who I thought was phenomenal. But she took her work off of there... I found her on Elfwood, but I couldn't find any of her old Zelda artwork >_<. Anyone familiar with her?

  6. Ha? Faker? I think you're the fake hedgehog. You're comparing yourself to me? Ha! You're not even ILL MAKE YOU EAT THOSE WORDS

    Exactly, lol! Did it happen in the Dreamcast version too? Or was it due to the Gamecube having a better processor? *shrug*

    Anyway, it was a fun game the first couple times through. :)

  7. Although I wouldn't call all of them crap games, save for a few:

    Starfox Adventures - Pretty hard at some parts, but I ended up beating it in a 5-day rental. It wasn't the best and a lot of people hated it, I loved it!

    Quest 64 - I don't even remember if this was a bad game... All I remember was that it was hard as hell! I rented the game like 8 times when I was a kid but never got past the forest part. I forgot why, but there was something about it that I loved.

    Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest - It definitely wasn't one of the great Final Fantasy games, but it was the only one I had. Because of this game I ended up renting Final Fantasy X and instantly became obsessed with the series. Now I own most of the games in some format or another.

    Final Fantasy X-2 - I played it through a lot.

    -Hated the story and how it ruined the first game.

    -Only a few musical tunes I liked from it (Memories of Light & Wave, Besaid, Yuna's Theme...)

    -Rikku looked like a Hawaiian hooker and was extremely annoying this time around.

    -And they resurrected Tidus if you got the good ending. ARGH, I hated him!

    But I still loved it for those same reasons and others. Battle system was cool too.

    Sonic Adventure 2: Battle (GC) - Spent a lot of time with this too (especially the Chao garden). But as I grew up, I realized that this game really wasn't that good, and a lot of the voice-acting overlapped...

    There are definitely more, just too lazy to mention them.

    P.S. - Great topic!
