I don't know if it is publicly notorious for anything in particular, but my own memory of it is that it contains three competing concepts for a story, and one of them is "Disaster Lesbians in Lord of the Flies", which really should be its own thing.
This is absurd. Do you think people want a Final Fantasy followup where [redacted] lives, but villains and heroes alike are constantly revealing they have secret identities and mysterious pasts? Preposterous! Why not just include Mickey Mouse while you're at it!?
the weird thing about the ff7 'twist' is that absolutely no one, and i really mean no one, talks about the second twist in the game. i don't mean the death of [redacted], i'm talking about the fight club shit. i think it's bc a lot of people didn't beat the game. yeah, i'm saying it. i'll say it!
I was worried that the witch's dying words that "the sequel to Final Fantasy 7 will be damned to contain an elaborate card game" would be ignored, but that old bat really knew how to sling a curse that lasts.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth has more minigames than any game I've ever played. The card game, Queen's Blood, is as good as Triple Triad if not better. If you played Final Fantasy XVI last year and found yourself wondering where all the charm and humor went... well, it's here
I want the Ringo Starr biopic to be about how Pete Best defeated Goldar, but was mortally injured in the process, so Ringo Starr had to absorb Best's magical star powers to take up the mantle in his honor.
Nothing like "we are changing the plot to make it more palatable exclusively for our fans", but like Comic Book Guy in The Simpsons, seemed like there were a lot of jokes aimed at "yes, we saw your forum posts".
Oddly, my experience with ATLA was that it was the first animated show I remember where I distinctly noted the "fandom" being involved, and that coloring my interpretations of episodes. The "shipping" plots, "chibi" shorts, and Ember Island Players come immediately to mind for this.
i used to write a blog about bad consumer products and this one never made sense to me until i found out that a significant percentage of men do not wash their butt hole, and so rightly do not want to spread feces onto the rest of their body via towel
There are men that built their whole personalities around the franchise, and then it BETRAYED them. It is the exact same personality type as the "good husband" who gets divorced, and spends the next three decades insulting their ex-wife. You simply cannot mess with their fragile identity like that.
I maintain that the reason we cannot get a good Superman game is that Superman's powerset lends him to games like Saints Row IV where you will naturally not "behave" like Superman. Invincibility, super strength, and infinite speed but you have to be "careful" is the opposite of fun.
