8. Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is a bit of a letdown... All the recurring characters have the exact same moves as the previous parts -.-

Which events being predictable bugged you most?

I guess if I'd have disliked the main character my opinion on the series would be different. Honestly I've enjoyed watching him grow up, for what the series is trying to achieve he's the perfect main character. Sasuke and the other Uchiha have always bothered me but I guess that has been somewhat dealt with recently. Sakura has gotten less annoying and the support cast is generally pretty good.

I had some problems with the series at first. Things like silly pre teen crushes becoming such a massive thing even years later, I'm pretty sure that if your crush tried to kill you you'd back off just a little. Then I realised that this is a comic and have proceeded with the presumption that the hearts of ninja children are even less rational than our own.

---

I haven't played a Naruto game since the Gamecube. Was pretty fun though. If only the Naruto ones were on the PSN, guess I'll make due with Kaizoku Musou.

Ha, why would they reboot Chobits when it doesn't need one?

I hate people who dismiss series like One Piece just because "lol they're lamestream". They're despicable. You gave the series a shot and you didn't like the story/character/plot structure and stuff then that's fine. BUT if the only excuse you have for not giving a series a real chance is that "lol they're mainstream. and I'm too cool fo' that ****", then I feel sorry for you. Because your reasoning is nothing but a bunch of crap.

Okay, you dislike everything that's mainstream and don't care if they're actually good and should be given a shot? Fine. What if your favorite series goes mainstream next? Would you say "**** it, dis **** becamz lamestream imma drop this evn if itzz my fave manga"? No, of-freakin'-course not! THAT is why your 'reason' is just a sorry excuse.

not really directed at anyone, just saying. Brought back memories of a stupid, STUPID youtube reviewer I saw a few days ago. Gave him my first ever dislike on youtube.

1. Whoa there, cool down man... Don't go starting fights over such trivial matters...

@Lapras: Ultimate Ninja Storm is one of the best fighting games IMO, I just think it's a shame that almost every character got the same jutsus and combos as the part they were introduced in.

Naah, like I said, I wrote that mainly because discussion about mainstream manga brought back some memories of this this specific youtube user whose video I saw a few days ago. His reasoning was crap. He continued to say stuff like "I don't like them because...well, they're mainstream. And I don't like mainstream stuff. No matter what.". I thought, yeah, okay, you hate mainstream stuff. I get it. Anything else? But he continued to say that again and again for over 12-15 minutes. I mean, wtf? If you do make a video titled "Why I don't watch/read the big 3", try to include something substantial in your video, you know. You should not repeat a single sentence a thousand times. :/

Even the better Youtube reviewers probably aren't worth your time. Actually I did like that guy that went and killed his family and gigguk despite being a total casual isn't horrendous.

But you should not solemnly swear you are up to no good either.

Well, the Emperor died, does this mean the new pope is him re-incarnated in a clone body?
Pope Francis doesn't look like a Sith Lord though, pity

I dunno. The resemblance is uncanny.

We won't know until we see or don't see plans for a new death star.

Was going to get Kaizoku Musou but £40 is a but much. Ended up buying The Unfinished Swan and Flower instead. Any gamers here, did I do good?

Haven't heard of that game... If you're looking for a good game, try Sleeping Dogs.
My sis borrowed the One Piece game from a friend a few days ago, haven't played it yet.

Flower is by the dudes that did Journey so that should be a winner. Other one was just a random one from the recommend section.

The combat system in Sleeping Dogs looks fun as ****. Will play eventually, I'm not the biggest gamer as you might have heard me say in the past.

Oh yeah, the guys who hate mainstream stuff simply because its mainstream, that type of shallowness and close-mindedness pisses me off. I'm fine with someone not liking something because they genuinely don't like it, and I'm okay with someone not liking something mainstream, but not liking the mainstream as a whole simply because its the mainstream is so shallow it's disgusting. Give things a try, don't dismiss them right off the bat. It's shallow crap like that that truly pisses me off, and same on the opposite end with mainstream consumers dismissing the obscure. There's little to be done, though...that's society, I guess.

On an unrelated note...I STEP AWAY AND THEN START TALKING ABOUT GAMES? ;_;

Well, in terms of Naruto games, Rise of a Ninja and the original Ultimate Ninjas 1-3 were good. Also, if any of you are interested, Bleach Vs. Crusade is a very unique 360 degree fighter...it's worth playing if you like Bleach (Japan-only).

Speaking of Naruto, there was a particular volume that melted what was previously hate (and before that, fanboyish love) for the series:
Spoiler:

As a previously long time fan of the series, I couldn't help but check this out when I saw it at the library, and at the time I was incredibly anti-Naruto. It was an unwarranted hate, and this volume made me realize that. Plus, I don't care if you like Naruto or not, this volume is just great.

The scene with his mum was pretty great. Certainly took the sting out of the fact we were ultimately in another training arc.

That being said the training arcs in Naruto have never been horrendous but still.

I had a few of the Naruto games for the Wii and the one for the Gamecube. Heh, they were alright but there was some issues with the Wii one I had.
