"He told me enough! …. He told me you killed him."

"No…. I am your father."

"No… that’s not true… THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE!!!"

"Search your feelings, you know it be true."

*Adell screams “no” in horror and rejection*

Adell, we can destroy Overlord Zenon. He has foreseen this. It is your destiny. Join me and together we can rule the Netherworld as father and son!

Oh my god, words cannot describe how hard the last stage in Episode 8 for Disgaea D2 was!! I lost the stage, saw the bad ending and found out that I have to START ALL OVER AGAIN FROM THE FIRST STAGE. However, my party is still at the same level as before.

A huge F-bomb dropped from my mouth. Fortunately, I saved before that battle so my efforts are not wasted. I guess I need to grind my party to lvl 50 before I take on Barbara, and find a way to beat that stage!

I really need help. Please give me strategic advice on how to beat the last stage in Episode 8, Disgaea fans and players. I don’t wanna over-level my party or else this game wouldn’t be fun.

Minecraft Tip for Measuring Blocks with F3

When using F3 to calculate long lengths of blocks (ex. 100 blks), always subtract the length you want by 1.

For example, a 5 block long wooden beam with (z:-265 and z:-261). If you calculate the difference between -265 and -261, you get 4. Thus when using F3, if you want to build a 100 long beam made on iron, make sure the difference between the position it starts at and ends at is 99.

Give it a try in your Minecraft map. It will save a lot of time in making precise calculations for your giant structures.

The frame in cutscene 7 for PlayStation Move Ape Escape above has proven my theory that the main character (you) in the game has no eyes. I mean literally. You could argue by saying that his eyeballs are not poking out. However even if they aren’t, you still should be able to see a bit of them. If you compare with the screenshot below where Tsukushi is facing sideways, her right eye shows up unlike the main character’s which is missing. No wonder the game kept hiding his eyes the whole time.

No matter how much you zoom in, you can still see that the eye area is
 as the same color as his skin. I do not know if it’s animation mistake or it was intentional.

This is the closest you will ever get to see the main character’s full face in the game. I kept pausing in slow motion between 0:21 and 0:22 to get the frame above.

I have yet to finish rewatching the last remaining cutscenes, but I doubt we could see his full face up front or maybe it’s for the best.

I took this screenshot last year when I wanted to see Gai’s sideview upon drawing him. You can see somewhat of a shadow for his left eye.

I got to that cutscene, run it in HD, and zoomed in on my computer. It is still not as close up and detailed as the frame from cutscene 7.

I find the shadow they drew on him isn’t really well done. It is shaped like his eye socket, looks unfinished, and is colored as a darker tone than the rest of his skin unlike the others in the same scene. You could say that his eyes are closed, but they don’t look like they are. To me, it looks like the animators were too lazy to draw Gai’s eyes, accidentally forgot to color them, ran out of time, or intentionally make them like that.

Unless Sony shows some official concept art for the game (which I doubt they ever would, due to the game’s poor reception), I am not 100% convinced that Gai has a pair of eyes since the game kept hiding them, poorly drew them, and is inconsistent with the other characters’.

There is something about the word “Gotcha” on Touko’s shirt in PlayStation Move Ape Escape.

I don’t know…the shirt looks very suggestive and dirty, especially when a guy puts his hands on her chest and says “Gotcha!”. It will be interesting to see if I can pull off a small joke about it in my video review of the main plot of PS Move Ape Escape.

I would remove pumped and primed from the shit tier list but i can understand why it’s there

What category would Ape Escape Million Monkeys fall under?

CinemaSins Style Parody for Review of PlayStation Move Ape Escape’s Story

Originally, I was thinking of doing a review of the main plot for PlayStation Move Ape Escape/Ape Escape Fury Fury. However, I realized that it would take me almost forever to do it. Instead, I want to do a CinemaSins-parody of the game’s plot, which is much more simpler and easy on me.

What is going to be like? Like the CinemaSins videos on Youtube, I will be watching all the cutscenes in the game and point out the “sins” I can find. I have only finished watching the first cutscene and there are already 22 “sins”. I knew a full video review would never be enough to cover everything that is wrong with the story for this game.

I have so many things going on around me, and I want to release a video review of PlayStation Move Ape Escape’s horribly written plot before May 31st which is Ape Escape’s 15th anniversary.

For once, Tom Nook actually did something right when it comes to placing homes in my town. I am proud of you, raccoon.

Let this be an example of why you should always think thoroughly and carefully about saying very sensitive things before you post on sites like Facebook or Tumblr.I am a big fan of Doug Walker. He is an awesome and nice guy in person. I know he does a lot of slip-ups from his mouth like the Autism joke in his Ernest Saves Christmas review, but the last sentence in his Facebook post rubs me the wrong way on so many levels.I was like “Doug! DOUGG! What were you thinking, man? Were you so worked up about Samus’ new design in Super Smash Bros 4, that you decided to relate Nintendo with the darkest period of Japanese history? Out of all the time periods, you can choose, WHY THE 1940s? Are you telling me that you want Nintendo to stop thinking like the 1940s, a time when Japanese soldiers raped and killed innocent women and children, and committed gruesome war crimes all across Asia?”To my knowledge, Nintendo was still a small card-making company in the 1940s. I doubt it was ever involved in contributing to the war effort by making ammunition and weapons with forced labor from conquered Asian countries.
I still love Doug Walker and his reviews, but I wish he is more careful about what he says when he expresses his own opinions on the Internet. Doug, please don’t ever say something like this again or I will make you re-watch Foodfight again!

That is NOT what he was talking about.

This post focuses on the last sentence he types as underlined by red in the screenshot, not the main content he is actually talking about.
I am not making a fuss about his opinion on Samus’ new zero suit design. I am making a fuss about his last sentence in his post about Zero Suit Samus.

I know. He was saying that the 1940s (America) had a very chauvinistic attitude towards women. It had nothing to do with how the Japanese treated female prisoners during WWII. While it does offer a fridge horror perspective to think of it like that, it’s hardly the first thing that comes to mind.

Not everyone thinks like Doug, especially when he refers a part of American history with a Japanese company like Nintendo. If it is a domestic company like Ford, it would make more sense. In fact, someone told about it yesterday, so I understood what he was trying to say.For people who think like or know Doug well, the attitude towards American women from men in the 40s comes to mind first. However, it is not the same for the vast majority of people on the Internet living outside the US or don’t know the history of women in the US. The sentence itself is still vague. If he was more specific by saying “1940’s America” or went with a different time period, they would easily understand what he is saying. It’s almost like that “Kneel before Zod” line in Doug’s Zodmas series, where it could make you think Zod is asking you to go below his waist and blow him.
Fortunately, both my grandmas were very lucky in their childhoods during that time even though they saw what happened to women who were not so lucky, so I am not really offended. I do not hate Doug. He is still awesome. I just do not want him to get into anymore unnecessary trouble, because of his carelessness.
