No news that I could find...

^That's your perogative, but I would like to remind you that we aren't exactly talking about a well-known game series here, and one we're really lucky they're even considering to release outside of Japan - not because of a lack of quality, but because publishers these days tend to play it safe and would rather focus on well-known, established brands when possible. Even NISA had been focusing a little hard on Disgaea for a while, and I'm sure Ys VIII must've been an expensive license, so I'm surprised they're bothering to branch out so soon like this. But as a fan of Mad Max and Metal Max...I'd at least like you to keep in mind that game publishing is still a business, and sometimes they're going to make decisions that have nothing to do with the actual quality of the game in question.

Oh God, I remember Bulllet Witch...that was a waste of a rental.

Been super stoked for this since it was announced. Glad to finally see another entry in the west.

I already mentioned the retro-ish love this season is getting. I didn't notice FLCL was getting a sequel, though. Awesome.

So yeah, a lot of awesome shows to make me feel like a kid again, and I can't wait!

Finally moved out of my previous, shitty apartment on Wednesday. Still unpacking a few things, but the new one I got has been a huge step up in terms of comfort. Before I had to deal with poor air circulation, cockroaches (at least when I moved in), a leaky radiator that went ignored despite numerous complaints until the guy from under me started complaining about a huge hole in his ceiling barely a week before I moved out, and a lousy neighbor who consistantly smoked various substances (despite being in a non-smoking building and no, no one was reprimanding him for it. Frequent communication issues with the management agency was another big problem I'm glad I no longer have to deal with), and shouting seemed to be his only method of communication, even when he wasn't blaring loud music from his expensive sound system at odd hours...

The new place is quiet, clean, roomier, and I'll only have one neighbor eventually to deal with (currently I'm the only tenant in the building, and it's just 2 apartments, anyways). Clean shag carpets, heat I can regulate myself, and plenty of natural light, overlooking a decent neighborhood for once. Obviously it might be a bit more expensive in the rent, but I should be able to afford it. If not, there's enough places I can try to apply for a part time job if I need to - I've learned my lesson and I'll fight tooth and nail to keep a good place like this.

Man, it seems like you can't have a modern fighting game without guest characters now. Geralt of Rivia just announced to be in the new Soul Calibur, and he's half the box cover.

To be fair, Soul Calibur has always had a guest character since SCII, which most would agree was the best at least partly due to its guest characters on each platform...

HDIVE has legend of the galactic heroes and we do have a new? reboot? out in a few months so I'm going to start it.

Do they still require a subscription? That's the main thing that's put me off that site, which was also my problem with The Anime Network before it...

Jumping the gun a bit, but man, there's a lot of old school stuff coming next season. Lupin III: Part V, The Legend of Galactic Heroes, a Fist of the North Star prequel, CUTIE HONEY!!!, and the return of Gegege no Kitarou (lesser known outside of Japan, but a big deal to old/old school japanese fans, I'm sure). Coupled with the return of Full Metal Panic! (not that old, but one I've been eagerly anticipating) and I've got quite the blast from the past to look forward to. Honestly, I'm just glad I've got more than just My Hero Academia that caught my interest, since I've gone way too long jusat watching reruns and playing catch-up with older series. I need something new again...or at least something old that's starting up again. =P

3) tedious crafting/upgrade system. Sigh, once again Tales of Beseria.

I love Star Ocean 3, but jeez that crafting system is a huge pain in the ass.

Worst one I've encountered, at least.

Day 15 of Warframe. Finally working on Saturn. I've been putzing about trying different weapons and Warframes out. Everyone seems great so far...except Nyx. I really need more ability-enhancing mods before that one will be viable. On that note:

Rhino is a great tank when I'm dealing with high level enemies and/or Survival missions. He alsao just feels great to use with a Shotgun, and I've gone through a lot of them to find the right one, with the 4-barreled Hek currently wiping out everything I come across.

Excalibur is still my main Powerhouse. He's just too well-rounded, so I wind up defaulting back to him, along with my Attica (which is still mulching literally every boss so far, while being reasonably effective at dealing with groups now that I've upped its ammo count. It's reload time and travel time for the bolts are the only drawbacks so far)

Everyone else seems to die too quickly, though, and like with Nyx, I just don't have ability-enhancing mods to compensate with sheer damage. I don't know when or where I'm supposed to get those from. :/

So you would rather give an award to something that would just be replaced by the next "big" Marvel summer movie next year, rather then a classic that will still be remembered probably after we are dead and gone?

Last I checked, they don't stop selling Movies just because a sequel is out, so no, I don't think so. Because that scenario does not exist. Infinity Wars would be a continuation, not a replacement. Heck, it's not even guaranteed to be good, I'm simply going with the metaphor. Overall, I'm just more concerned about watchability/enjoyment factor of a piece of entertainment than I am its percieved cultural influences, especially since said influences usually require way more than a year to be said with any amount of certainty.

But again, I think I still don't get what the point of awards are supposed to be. I thought it was just a bunch of people who frequently engage with certain subsections of entertainment to gush over the things that came out this year that they liked the most and they felt resonated with them for various reasons, which were then broken down into categories.

Apparently some people see more in it than that, and I just don't get why.
