Final Fantasy VIII

The plot has a lot of dumb shit but the timeline in VIII actually makes sense. Nobody is allowed to change the past because changes made by time travellers already "catch" by the time the present arrives. So the protagonists beat the villain in the future before going back to their time, but because history is set in stone the villain will eventually arise generations into the future again. It is neat.

The only way time travel is done "right" is if it's a set timeline. Nothing you do in the past changes anything in the future.

If go to the past to change something, then you never had a reason to go back back in the first place.

Although that does raise the question of if it's possible to change the past if what you changed had nothing to do with your reason for going back.

I don't if there's much of a difference between the two versions. I watched a 3DS playthrough and the only issue I saw was that the guy recording the game was recording it on a camera and not from something that could emulate it, so the video + audio quality was bad.

Is the vita the better version for gameplay reasons? I have this annoying tendency where I don't like to play something if I know I'm missing out by not playing it under better circumstances. Never played Metro 2033 when I had it for xbox because I know it's better on the pc and my pc couldn't run it, didn't play mother 3 until I got a flash cart and played it on a GBA because I knew emulating it would fuck up the battle combo system, stuff like that.

Sands of Time
>>
>>291221402

The vita is the worst version for gameplay reasons, mainly due to the fact that note taking can be incredibly annoying due to no stylus and second screen. It's a god send for the 3ds version. Makes shit so much more enjoyable.

The visuals and sound are better and it is less buggy, despite there only being one bug in the 3ds version which has had a work around patch for it since ages ago.

>>291217134

Majora's Mask nails the concept perfectly since it's far more gameplay-oriented then focusing on a paradox-laden story.

There isn't a point to going back in time because the new future it would create already exists in a separate dimension. Just go straight to the other dimension and cut out the hassle.

>>291221331
It doesn't make the least of sense at all compared to all the rest, it's the most plausible, look if you have the possibility to send a message back in time to yourself and do it right now you are still the guy who never got a message earlier in your life, you are the guy who sent the message, you wouldn't know you received the message, you wouldn't change.
Now since the message will arrive never the less there will be a you who get a message from the future.

Yea, but then you stop to think, and it's still bullshit like all other time travel stories.
How and why does Young Xehanort have the ability to travel through time if only someone who does not have a physical body can do so?
How can any of the new Orgy13 travel to the current time period if they could only do so if a current living incarnation of Xehanort needed to be around, and old man Xehanort only fully reappeared after all the new Orgy13 members had gathered?
How did Ansem SoD even figure out he could time travel?
If one cannot change the past, as Master Xehanort said, then what is bringing all these other incarnations of Xehanort from different time periods doing?

plebians exposed

the situation was so out of control by that point that killing himself was the only option. bruce willis was already close to killing tetsuo's mom which makes him grow up into psychic hitler. killing himself served a purpose for the good of someone other than himself, the young version was a nihilistic edgelord remember? it was thematically sound and a perfectly fine end to the movie and closed the time loop.

time travel is usually a clusterfuck in movies but looper handled it well.

no, there are at least two timelines, possibly infinity. but if young joe dies in any of them he ceases to exist in all of them. all the different versions of old/young joe existed until the specific moment in time where young killed himself in that timeline.

time can't be viewed as explicitly linear for these types of stories to work.

there can be timelines where he doesnt die, unless you mean that old joe cant exist in any timeline where young joe has already died, which is just basic causality

The new Terminator movie looks awful. Like, it actually looks worse than Terminator 3. I wish this series had stayed dead, because the last good thing to come out of it since T2 was a TV show that got canceled on a cliffhanger ending after two seasons.

At any rate, I think it's safe to say this will be the last Terminator movie. Every studio that has made a Terminator movie has gone out of business, and this will be no different. The franchise is cursed and I don't really see how anyone will want to touch it again if the new movie bombs.

As much as I love Terminator, it is sadly not a franchise with legs the way many of its contemporaries were. It had two good movies, two mediocre ones, and a pretty decent TV show spinoff, but it hasn't actually been popular since the 90s, and every attempt to revive it has only driven that point home.

I liked Terminator 3 when it came out and got plenty of fapping done with the Terminatrix's help, but I saw it on my 16th birthday. When I went back and watched it as an adult it just plain did not hold the same appeal to me as the original two did. It was an alright action movie, but the first two were instant classics. And let's be honest-- everyone in T3 was kind of a jerkish asshole, without nearly enough of the human moments that made you care about the characters in the first two movies. The asshole T-850 from T3 had some great comedy moments, but as a character he was not nearly as memorable or endearing as the more empathetic T-800 from T2.

Yeah, Achron came out. It's really good, but MAN, is it hard to grasp.
It's a game where you can lose a fight in the past and then send units from the future to actually ensure they even get built.
It's also a game where I've once seen someone zerg rush his opponent with the Humans, then go back in time and choose one of the other races just to confuse his opponent.
It's completely ridiculous and I'm really bad at it.

I'm pretty sure in the new movie they are just taking a bunch of shortcuts and using CG instead of makeup.

Also, let's not forget that Stan Winston died right after working on T4. He was a master of practical creature effects, and his work is part of what made even the bad Terminator movies special. The new movie does not have him and it shows.

Hell, even the TV show had better makeup effects than the new movie. Their low budget forced them to employ a lot of the same techniques Stan Winston used in the original two movies, and they got people who were passionate about doing makeup the old fashioned way to work on it. The new film makers grew up in the CG generation where you just slap a motion tracker on someone's face and have the computer people do the rest, and they don't even have the budget or resources to do it convincingly.

Yeah but SKynet made itself from a chip the First Terminator left behind when it died and there's no indication a Convergent Engineering feat would create something exactly like the original Skynet if they tried (Especially since they blew up Cyberdyne).

Skynet as it was shouldn't still exist.
>>
>>291226923
It's not even that. If time in this universe is a line that can be changed then the John Connor we see in T2 and those further in the series can't be the real John Connor. Since Kyle Reese was sent back in time by John then the original had a different father. By sending Kyle back in to protect(and fuck) his mother, the real John Connor pretty much ends his own existence and is replaced by a different person with the same name.
Skynet won

Well, it's an indie RTS that is four years old, so yes, it's pretty dead compared to, say, 3 years ago.
Although there's still people posting on the forums, so it's not super-dead. And the latest update is from November 2014, so you could join the official forums and look around. I definitely recommend it.
>>
>>291227520
Prosthetics and puppets are actually there in the shots, while CG is merely an image. Plus, while I don't know for sure, I like to imagine acting in a movie with CG is harder on the actors, since they need to pretend something is really there, instead of in older films where they can actually see the damn thing.

3 was so fucking horrid, it's hard to compare. Arnold should have never been involved. It should have been some bizarre divergent timeline where the T-1000 and the T-X fight each other instead. That would have been a much more interesting battle. The final battle between the two at the end would have had the T-1000 dropping all pretenses of appearing Human, and becoming some shrieking liquid metal horror.

I think my favorite moment with Achron was when I was in a 2v2 game.
I noticed that my ally was attacking one of our opponents, but my army was, at that moment, faffing about somewhere else.
So, I went back in time about a minute or so, gathered my army and timed it so that we could tear his base apart from two different sides.

Then there's also the super weapons of the three species. The Humans just have a standard nuke, the Vecgir (bipedal insect aliens) have a nuke that, shortly before hitting the target, teleports towards it and the Grekim (weird... things) have a nuke that sends all enemy units in the target radius 30 seconds into the future which is HILARIOUS.

Maybe it did, and that attempt failed, and set into motion events that caused Sarah's birth that otherwise wouldn't have happened, maybe Sarah is her own grandma.

The later Terminator movies say the future is immutable, everything they did in the Terminator movies with time travel just created unchangeable inevitabilities (DoublesGuy managed to check this 6, allowing him to retcon it, but still)

They actually got that idea from a Terminator novel written by S.M. Sterling. In it the female Terminator was more biological and had more humanity so that she could use her femininity to infiltrate, seduce, and lower people guards. No built in weapons and liquid metal skin though. She was really just a terminator who could think more like a human. She was still tough though because they mess her up pretty bad, but her robotic components keep her going.

The franchise still has legs, the problem is that the people making the films are absurdly incompetent and don't understand what audiences like(d) about the franchise.

3 was a pretty good example of why the new-model hollywood action film style shouldn't be rammed into older franchises and the general lack of creativity and banking on nostalgia that typifies most reboots these days.

However, 4's interpretation of the end war, compared to the original scenes pretty much the perfect representation of how badly hollywood is missing the point right now and trying to make transformers/superhero movies at every opportunity, no matter the source material.

Also, McG.

Timesplitters did not even remotely try and get time travel right. Time travel is fucking stupid anyway. Going back in time won't fucking change anything unless you go to another timeline, because news flash everything in the present has already taken the past into account.

If it's a new timeline then you left a fucked up timeline anyway.

You know, McG was going to make John Connor die and have a terminator take up his name at the end of Salvation. Funny how they're going with that now.
>>
>>291232579
>>291231802
Calling salvation a terminator war movie would be like calling a guy dancing to gangnam style a historical reenactment of the charleston.
Nothing about the movie's atmosphere, plot, characters, scope etc. has anything in common with the original scenes filmed by Cameron. The end war is supposed to be about humans hanging on by their nails to survival of the species and trying to fight with scavenged weapons and hide in tunnels from relentless, towering tanks.
Salvation was essentially a Z grade CGI fest mix up of mad max film with transformers.

I don't see how anyone could possibly think that it was a decent representation of Jameron's original vision, let alone a good terminator film or action movie.
>>
>>291232579
Being set in the way doesn't really conflict with the first two movies' philosophies (because obviously the Skynet future would have to still exist for it to be still sending guys back into the past). So it's alright.

He'll probably just sit on it forever. Won't be soon since he's making at least 3 Avatar movies first.

Everything else Terminator reboots from T2. The only thing that might not have was Salvation. Supposedly it was connected to the TSCC show, but seems we'll never know since the trilogy bombed and the showrunners never put out the story planned for the show.

The third film has a lot of faults, but this is not one of them.
By stopping skynet in the 90s, they only postponed the development of an AI program that could control America's nuclear program and if anything, they made skynet much stronger thanks to the vastly advances in computing and robotic tech since the 90s.

They kind of fucked in calling the new system skynet though, but I guess the name is cool and brand recognition and all of that.
Also, why the fuck would a rogue AI that escaped onto the internet decide to destroy all of the computers and infrastructure that make the internet possible? Wouldn't it want the meatbags to keep maintaining and growing the internet as much as possible to improve its computing power?

Other people have pointed out some dumb things about Looper, but one I rarely see people bring up is the fact that the timeline Bruce Willis was from never had a Bruce Willis on the run, so no one ever killed the kid's mom trying to kill him, so he would have been raised normally. So Joseph Gordon Levitt's plan to kill himself to prevent that from happening really has no effect, that kid's going to end up evil anyway.

There are more than one Arnie-type Terminators. The older Arnie was sent way back to the past to protect a younger Sarah Connor and apparently raised her with knowledge about the future. The younger Arnie is the same one from the 1984 Terminator.

Basically, Genesys fucks up the canon of all the previous Terminator films in order to milk out a once relevant movie franchise.

That's the point though. If it's in a secure location as a physical construct then it has a reason to protect itself. As the internet it's pretty much killing itself through nuclear annihilation. Not to mention Skynet like everything else in terminator is a pardox, it created itself through giving Dyson technology from the future. Without it it could be decades before something came even close to being SKynet and like you said it wouldn't be called fucking Skynet.

Full Retard.

Even though it's a visual novel YU-NO is probably still one the best to do time travel with parallel worlds to explain the going back in time paradox.
It's also one of the earliest games to do it (being released before Xenogears).

The epilogue was a bit rushed but overall it's still one of the best visual novels despite it being almost 20 years old.

I wish someone would use the same concept to make a modern game in an adventure genre style.
They are remaking YU-NO though.

They literally said "Judgement Day cannot be stopped, only postponed", meaning its supposed to be some unavoidable event that will always happen even if you drastically alter the timeline.

I would be OK with James Cameron just sitting on the rights. If he intended for it to be finished after T2, then I will be happy to see the rights back with him where no-one can screw with his baby again.

On the other hand though, deep down I want to see what James Cameron's version of Terminator 3 would have been like. I have no idea if he'll ever make it, but part of me can't help but imagine that he's got a script hidden away somewhere and he's just waiting for all the pieces to fall into place. Maybe he's even waiting for a director he can trust to do it for him while he sits in the producer's chair.

Honestly, cloning Quarrich is the only thing that could get me interested in the sequel. He was the only character in Avatar that I felt like rooting for by the time it was over, because he is a certified BAMF who gives zero shits.

Nah. He actually wrote T2 with a more conclusive ending, but the theatrical version of the movie ended up with a vaguer ending so they could milk out the series. Cameron only allowed T3 to be made so that Arnie could've a paycheck, but he basically treats the post-T2 movies as fanfic.

I'd like to see them just branch out and do other stories in the universe using different characters. Nothing about Terminator says that you always have to focus on John, Sarah, and Arnie.

That would have been so much easier. There was even a (non-canon) bonus scene on the T3 DVD where they suggested that the 101 model was based off of a US Army officer. If he was still alive in the future then he'd be a grizzled old man, and that would have been a lot more believable.

Hell in T3 they actually used digital makeup to make Arnold look younger like he did in T2. I know the movies never stated outright that the terminators' exteriors do not age and deteriorate, but seeing the terminator as a fairly constant character throughout the series was always cool. He's supposed to be a machine and I don't want to see him as an old man.

She didn't want to come back to T3 because how hard it was to get into Sarah shape. And I think she didn't want to deal with the franchise anyways being Cameron's ex. I know he wasn't really involved with 3 but it was probably a memories thing.

Plus, they wrote this for a young Sarah so they can get Thrones girl in there. It was beyond obvious they were going for lazy free publicity when they announced both a GoT star AND a Doctor Who star.

But terminator did it terribly. In the first it was a self closing loop, in the second they altered the timeline. They changed the rules between the movies to suit the narrative. That's horrible writing

>>291238417
This new movie would have been even better if he was literally Sgt Candy from that deleted scene. Biggest tragedy for T3 was it's removal.
>>
>>291237667
In the new one, Skynet sent a Terminator further back to kill Sarah as a child, and the resistance sends a T-800 back then to save her. Her parents die, and the Terminator acts as a surrogate father and raises her. That's the justification for old-ass Arnie in this one. It's dumb, since then it just opens up the question of why Skynet doesn't just keep sending Terminators further and further back to eliminate members of the Connor family tree, ensuring future ones aren't born, or born in a way that doesn't impede Skynet's takeover.

Eh, we don't know if it was a closed loop as they never actually discuss time travel's rules outside of the physical requirements and some stuff in TSCC. It's pretty much guaranteed to be a mess.

This whole movie is going to be one big fustercluck on the Terminator mythology. I don't even know if it can be considered canon at this point. As an anon above said, the rights for the Terminator franchise revert back to James Cameron in 2018 due to some IP law, so whatever random ass studio currently has the rights is just shitting out the most spectacularly retarded Terminator film they could think of to make a quick buck.

The only reason I will watch this film is just to see how bad it is. It will be torrented, of course, because I don't want to reward the mentality that produces shit like this. And I will have to have a lot of beer.

That doesnt make sense seeing as he's the biblical Kain and could have removed entire empires from the pages of (in-story) history. He's an immortal of great and terrible power.
