Woo, thought things were starting to get hot around here. ;)



Hope the Let's Play goes swimmingly! ;)

A few months ago they moved the elderly from the nursing home to a home elsewhere. I just found out that this made this village's population shrink by 20%. This place is so doomed XD



Yes, they "moved" them. ;)

finished watching these anime in the last couple of days:

  • Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions + Throb
  • Oreimo 2
  • Chaos;Head

I'm also re-watching some of Haganai before watching Haganai next. I'm almost certain once I finish those two up, I wont watch anime for the rest of this year.

You have my condolences. RIP, your last couple of days/drive to watch bad anime.

It's funny because I think of the group I watched/currently finishing up, Chaos;Head is definitely miles ahead. The whole schizophrenic would have been beautiful had they not introduced the whole...

Code:
megalomaniacs and government conspiracy trash. Honestly, I was getting a kick out of him finally trusting that blond chick and then she grabs him and he freaks out. That was comical. ;)

I'm rewatching Outlaw Star.  I have only seen it on Toonami (and not in its entirety) and am watching the DVD boxset, subtitled.  I only watched the first 5 episodes last night and my feelings are similar to what they were before.  Yes, Cowboy Bebop is objectively the better series, but Outlaw Star is just more my style of anime, "what the huh?" moments of 'anime logic' be damned.  But if I didn't allow myself to succumb to the oxymoron that is "cartoon logic" and nitpicked all the niggles I wouldn't enjoy anime and cartoons (especially 80s cartoons) and would need to be admitted to the Please Please Please Get a Life foundation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNJ6dFwh8a4

And although Bebop has excellent music, Outlaw Star is no slouch in the music department either.  Its opening and ending songs are quite good and the music throughout the series is solid.  Again, Cowboy Bebop has arguably superior music, but Outlaw Star's music is more my style. 

Bebop has the superior dub, though.  Bebop's dub felt effortless whereas Outlaw's sounded a bit "try hard." That being said, Jim and Aisha are a hoot in the dub. 

I know the trinity in those days was Outlaw Star, Cowboy Bebop, and Trigun, but I never quite got into Trigun.   

EDIT: 10 episodes in and loving it!

Outlaw Star is best waifu, hands down. ;)

I think y'all are going to get a kick out of how we handle these fights. ;)

Yeah, I don't know what site you're looking at but RPGFan is one of the few outlets I visit that DON'T go for the inflammatory or leading headlines.

You'll never see '10 THINGS FINAL FANTASY VII DID POORLY... NUMBER 6 BLEW MY BALLS OFF' at RPGFan. :)

You do realize what this means? We now must, at some point, make a post entitled 10 THINGS FINAL FANTASY VII DID POORLY... NUMBER 6 BLEW MY BALLS OFF 

It is the LAW!

war of the lions or original?

Both! I'm playing War of the Lions, since it's my first time experiencing the game, and Marcos is representing the old guard w/ the original game and serving as wise mentor/curmudgeon.



(<3 Marcos)

I'll be returning for the Tactics episodes, so keep an ear out when the episode 3-1 drops. ;)

Yeah, they totally went for quantity over quality, and the occasional change of pace tended to be annoying rather than refreshing, IIRC, though I forget why.

EDIT: Goddamnit, now I want to play an SRPG, especially after seeing the trailer for Summon Night 5....now the question is: Do I play Fire Emblem and start Eliwood's path, or do I put in some effort and try out one of the many SRPGs that are sitting in my room untouched, because there's only 5 SRPGs that aren't Super Robot Taisen that I've ever actually touched...

The only times FFTA changed up its mission structure, was for the Crystal Bosses (and maybe the extra bonus missions that you unlock after completing all of the standard 300), and those guys were still largely kill em all but with a gimmick that you couldn't just safely ignore. That game was the game and probably the single worst SRPG I've ever played.


As for your SRPG question, which SRPGs to you have access to?

I already made up a handy list of ones I was interested in playing...and then I put it in a randomizer and Growlanser II came out on top. So I'll make this easy: Should I play Fire Emblem (GBA) or Growlanser II?

We should totally play Growlanser II together. ;)

Awkward moment when you walk in on your ex and his new boyfriend doing it :D :D :D D:



Duuuuude you shoulda had just ONE ZINGER as you went by or like held up those score cards that olympic judges use:


I did feel like letting the guy know the sex is terrible, but he'll know that by now. :p

ALL SEX IS BORING.

With all this radio silence, I suspect that no one amongst our intrepid podcasting crew survived Operation Mi'hen.

Finished watching Steins;Gate.

Very entertaining. I always enjoy LOVE when Time/Time Traveling is in a show/game. I would like for them to do a Sequel to this show where they follow the "first" Okabe and his journey through his dystopia. I suppose what I mean is not so much "first," rather, the line that is furthest ahead of everyone else.
Excellent show. Just finished a rewatch of it myself. The way they handled the Green Oompa still bugs me though. >.>

Funny you should mention a sequel though. They announced earlier this year that they are going to be doing a game and anime called Steins;Gate 0 which focuses on Beta Line Okabe after he fails to Christina.

Ah! I knew there was going to be a game, but I didn't know it was going to follow Beta Line Okabe. I'll play it~!

Also, what about the Green Oompa thing bugs you? I'm assuming we are talking about the miniature toy one that Mayuri gets in that episode? DID I MISS SOMETHING???
