There's going to be a Dynasty Warriors movie? Why would you bother after Three Kingdoms the miniseries was so perfect? Do they just want the marginally sillier costumes?

Mister Bibbs thinks interviews are way harder than they actually are because of his crippling inability to understand or relate to human emotions. So he assumes the reason he gets rejected is a failure to adequately explain his skills rather than his weird lizard stare.

A couple friends of mine just showed me Stines Gate last night. We got about three episodes in and MAN I wished the whole "Time Travel is real" aspect was ripped out. Because then this would be a great slice of life show/Japanese version of Crying of Lot 49 but with a wannabe Rick Sanchez.
If you aren't watching it with the English dub, switch to the dub. It is legitimately great.

Oh yeah, of course. But this dove-tails into another problem with America. Housing shortages in major urban areas. Either because no one wan't to build or rent to low income people or because the wealthier residents fight to keep people from building new housing in order to keep their property values up.
There is also the problem of an entire industry of real-estate resellers purposely massively inflating the price of houses to hte point where people who actually want to live in houses rather than use them as a store of investment cannot buy them.

Your trap is laid on faulty premises. Waiting for Godot was entirely built around the wait, and if it happened as a mere scene added into the middle of say Jurassic Park I'd probably call it bad due to failing to intergrate the concepts laid in one part of the movie with concepts in another. Similar to the barrel scene not meshing with the other parts of the movie.

“Not meshing”, in your opinion. A scene “not meshing” is a matter of taste, if a scene “doesn’t mesh”, that doesn’t make something bad. I thought the scene “meshed” fine, for instance. Am I somehow formally “wrong”?

Ultimately this is what I see as the problem; some folks just don’t like the scene, and in order to do more than say, “I didn’t like it”, they attempt to formalize that dislike by creating “rules” that make it seem like their taste is somehow informed by something deeper than their own taste
It's good to see that your stance is that art cannot have differing levels of quality. You may want to leave a thread primarily for discussing critics and criticism.

Waffles Inc. posted:

Well, kinda not? I mean, I don't think the purpose of criticism is to "rank" art by varying levels of "quality" if that's what you mean. I think criticism is rad and cool and a great way to talk about films, books, music, visual art, etc and furthermore, that the "purpose" of criticism (so much that there is one) is not to say "this is good" or "this is bad".
Of course not. The purpose is to say why, how, and to what purpose a film succeeds and or fails at presenting itself. Same way I can't "rank" someone's ability to dance, but I can certainly tell you when someone trips and face-plants.

Waffles Inc. posted:

IMO we can and should talk about art and its critics more deeply than "this movie is bad". And I reckon you agree! A good example of that is, for example, Ellis' third Hobbit video. Stood up on its own, it is a criticism of the art that isn't a qualitative criticism, and that's awesome
"This movie is bad" isn't very valuable, but "this is why this movie fails to connect with most people in the way it intended or the way they wanted it to" is a bit of a mouthful and it's much easier to say "here's why this movie is bad".

Unfortunately moviebob still thingks the Simpsons is funny. He does his whole appeal to "institution" and "unprecedented" thing all the time. Mister bob loves continuity and things that remind him of middle school too much to ever give up on it.

Say what you will about Night Mind, but he's helped promote Nyx Fears a lot. Her video style has improved a lot from what they were. I hope she eventually does some more critical essays on good movies again, since she watches movies that a lot of other youtubers won't touch.
Nightmind is actually really good about promoting his friends, Nyx just happens to be the most talented of that group. Also I can't really ever be mad at Night Mind for being wrong so often, because he always enjoys bad things so earnestly that it makes you wish the thing was as good for you as it is for him.

Also laws against nazi's are good imo.
I agree. I just think that getting arrested for it is an abridgment of freedom. Ostracize him, shame him, fire him, etc, I'm just uncomfortable with the government doing something that could result in jail-time.

I wasn't 100% sold on all of his arguments either, but his initial point is right on the mark: People really can't seem to praise New Vegas without also making GBS threads all over Fallout 3 in the same breath. Like, I'm not gonna be contrarian and claim Bethesda's games are objectively superior or not buggy or whatever, but people seem to uniquely have it out for them in a way that borders on obsessive. Or just insecure, since it always seems to carry a twinge of "stupid normies and their F3, everyone knows New Vegas is better " plus all of the hilarious times people are ready to wage war on Obsidian's behalf based on hearsay. You can set your watch to some of those posts for inevitably they appear.
It's basically the same as when people are comparing say Nightmare on Elm Street movies that involve Wes Craven and those that don't. One involves the original team and the other doesn't so it understandably causes some resentment.

I don't think you read my post with the intended tone. There is just a certain level of love of being rewarded for attention to detail needed.

Honestly the game best at presenting the level of choice in Fallout 1 and 2 released in recent years was probably Tyranny. It gives you a huge number of choices many of them very difficulty to achieve, to show you how few choices there actually are under a despot. Tyranny was a very good game.

I remember that broadly being the theory for why Urgot (a big fat stitched-together corpse-lookin' dude walking around on robot crab legs) took so long to get a rework, but that was the only case of it.

John Murdoch posted:

I mean, Swain went from The Penguin to Lucius Malfoy. Not exactly generic badass. It's a fine line because a lot of the older designs were/are goofy, ugly, or both. I do think they've been a little overly reserved lately, but it hasn't been in a way that comes off like "mass market appeal >>>>> all else".
If he was the only guy going from a fairly unique character design in game, an fairly frail old man, to a broad-shouldered traditionally masculine type I'd agree. However this is something that happened with almost every male character getting a redesign. Scion went from being a really goofy looking zombie man to basically indistinguishable from a WoW orc. Trundle went from a lanky troll to having the same barrel chest as every other man. Weird looking characters aren't allowed.

I liked Nier but it did suffer from trying to be a game about being a dad and about being a child at the same time, due to there literally being two separate game built into the script. Which means that no matter which version you played some scenes were clearly meant for the other version.
