This is why I don't understand some people's disdain for "filler" episodes. They help with the overall flow of the narrative, character development, world building, etc. Without them, we get right into the meat of the ongoing plot and not much else. That said, I still really liked last week's episode, and I like the development that Peridot is getting. Her bond with Steven is adorable. Though as you said, she's seemingly become a good guy over the course of one episode, which is a little too quick IMO. Maybe in the coming episodes we'll see for sure just how much she's changing.
I'm surprised people here like this game. I haven't played it yet, but from what I know about it, I figured people here would be giving it shit and calling it pretentious or something. I downloaded the demo earlier today, so I'll give it a shot for myself soon.
I haven't been watching the Link Between Worlds playthrough only because I intend to eventually play the game and don't want it spoiled for me. I've stopped caring about their Galaxy playthrough, and will probably only tune in again when I see FINALE in the title.
They really aren't that hard. People probably just want Arin to wrap things up with the Galaxy playthrough. I get if he wants to show every world, but he doesn't have to get every star and go for 100%, like he tried to do in the SM64 playthrough.
I saw Roger Waters The Wall last night. Really cool and impressive show, since I would've never had a chance to go see the actual concert. I wasn't too keen on Waters changing the themes of The Wall to be more war-centric instead of focusing on the character of Pink. Then I thought that maybe with certain events happening in this day and age, it's not really all that bad to try and get people more informed about corrupt politics, and how war affects the world. It was also nice to Waters up on stage, smiling and having a good time. He always sounded like a bit of a curmudgeon to me, maybe he's lightened up over the years.
I've been watching more of ProJared and I'm starting to really like his reviews. He's much more grounded and real compared to Jon and PBG's surreal, non-sequitur styles of humor (not that I have a problem with them, just noting the difference). He hit the nail on the head in his Sonic Adventure 2 review, and his Chrono Trigger review actually convinced me to finally try the game.
I haven't been able to watch the show regularly because my animation class starts at 7 pm, but I finally caught up last night. Definitely some interesting (and hilarious) stuff going on with Peridot now, I'm very interested to see how she ends up.
Oh wow, I just looked up the Magician's Quest DS game and it's near Chinese-bootleg levels of ripoff. Still looks kinda interesting though. If I ever see it, maybe I'll try it out. Until then, I think I'd rather try HHD first.
I don't believe people said the idea behind Inside Out was unique, it was the execution of the idea. And the only thing it has in common with some of those other works is the fact that it takes place inside a human body. It's hardly comparable to Osmosis Jones, since that's a buddy-cop film with and is more about the biological aspects of the human body, not the psychological or emotional aspects.
A long long time ago, the Earth was ruled by dinosaurs. They were big, so not a lot of people went around hassling 'em. Actually, no people went around hassling 'em cuz there weren't any people yet. Just the first tiny mammals. Basically, life was good. Then something happened: a giant meteorite struck the Earth. Goodbye dinosaurs! But what if the dinosaurs weren't all destroyed? What if the impact of that meteor created a parallel dimension where the dinosaurs continued to thrive and evolve into intelligent, vicious, and aggressive beings... just like us? And hey, what if they found a way back?
