Besides "Grave of the Fireflies" "Saikano" has be the next most depressing anime show I have seen.  Chaos;Head is crap. The VN was crap, and the anime even more so.

IIRC, the manga ended on a particularly disastrously sad ending.

One of few anime series' I really dig!

I just made a thread for this.


Chaos;head had an interesting premise but blew it out of it's ass the moment it tried to explain anything since it all boiled down to "A wizard did it.".

As for depressing anime try Bokano (or however its spelled). Giant Robot series where the robot literally runs on children.

If we're talking votes for least anticipated titles of the year, I'd place mine on Ni no Kuni since it looks like a Level 5 game with blander gameplay compared to their better titles XIII Versus because honestly, it really has become the second coming of Duke Nukem Forever and should have DNF's old projected release date of 3/21/2999.

Also I noticed this before but didn't feel like mentioning it till now, but lol at XIII-3 not even getting a mention despite it being guaranteed to be released later this year.

The problem may be how would you properly remake something like those first four now?

... Well, I'd at least like them to preserve that 80s/early 90s sci-fi anime feel as much as they can, and III could be made to mesh better with the rest, but I just don't trust Sega as they are now to do a good job there.

*pictures Rhys, Nei, and all the rest of PS2's cast hijinks-ing it up in a Japanese High School*

(Although given their personalities, you could slot them right in with almost no fuss. Rolf takes the protagonists' seat by the window so no NPCs need to be drawn, Nei is the mysterious transfer student that takes up residence right behind him, Rudo is the buddy next to Rolf and constant wingman, Amy is the librarian's aide, Hugo is the guy who only shows up at lunch time and is humorously ignored, Anna is the class rep, Kain is the guy in the automotive repair club, Shir is the athletic girl, Nei-First randomly shows up to wreck havoc and causes Nei to get expelled, Lutz is the old mentor who teaches Rolf karate's ultimate move the Neihameiha Medigo, Dark Force is the evil gang leader, Mother Brain is the dark magic possessed trophy henchwoman of Dark Force who helplessly fights for her master after he is defeated and is the true final boss, the people of earth are aliens from the Algo star system, and the Musik teacher is still gay.)

Barring some kind of critical failure of incompetence or human dignity (goddamn scalpers), I fully intend to make off with that sweet FE3DS bundle, and then I'm going to be drained for the next couple of months.

Also wouldn't mind seeing Bravely Default or Type-0, but Squeenix needs to pull their collective head out of their collective ass. Soul Hackers would be another good game to cut my teeth into someday.

I'd always said there was just one voyager ep I really liked, where the ship and the entire crew cloned and in the end it was the cloned ship that survived while the original was destroyed.

...buuut then I heard someone say that I was wrong and it was the original that survived after all. So nothing redeeming about the show at all.

If there was anything Voyager was consistent on, it was inconsistency. Hell, just look at any time the Prime Directive got brought up. Half the time Janeway would be "We must respect the Prime Directive at all costs. Even if it means losing a crew member/a chance to go home in the process." and the other half would be "To hell with the Prime Directive! Just blow it up and be done with it.".

Eh. It'll hurt my wallet but with the current retro gaming bubble and a potentially dry year this year (I'm suspecting that all those new console rumors will bear something later this year which means launch titles and the occasional underrated gem) I think I will take the bite and hope for the best.

Lightsabers don't kill people.  People kill people.

You can take my Lightsaber when you pry it from my cold robotic hand.

I liked the Doctor + Kes duo. They were awesome together.

Considering she was supposed to die at the age of 9 I think she's doing ok

Then she left, got better, then came back a few seasons later for some kind of ill conceived revenge plot.

Goddamn did Voyager suck. The Doctor was honestly the best part of the show.

if you have playstation plus megaman 9 and 10 are now free.

Are the DLC free too?

Not like it matters to me since I already have them on my Wii.

We need to put less money into these weapons of mass destruction and more into our schools.

 By which of course, I mean Jedi Academies.

But what happens when one of the Padawans or a mentally deficient Jedi turns to the dark side and goes on an academy killing spree? Think man, we need to post Stormtroopers at every academy and arm all of our teachers with Lightsabers.

...all of a sudden, I wish I'd paid attention to politics. :P

One of the things Newt Gingrich (one of the people that was in the running during Republican primaries) was criticized/made fun of for was his proposal for the US to establish a moon base. While it does sound outlandish, it's actually something that's very possible technologically, just probably not very economy-friendly. =P

To be fair, the 2012 Republican Primaries were a comedy goldmine in terms of the nominees. It's why the Republicans had to settle for Mr. Milquetoast Romney (although he did shit on a few national economies with his old company Bain Capital). I only wish that Donald Trump had gotten in on some of that action instead of just blackmailing the president from the sidelines (among other things).

My litmus test for SRPGs is the heal test. The principle behind it is in how your party and its members are perceived as. In your CRPGs your party is strictly considered to be one unit whereas in your SRPGs your team consists more of individual units under your control that are designed to function like a team rather than a single team like unit. Therefore, with the heal test, if I were to cast a heal spell in a CRPG my choices in targets would consist of 'individual' or 'all' with the only consideration being whether or not I want the heal's full power on one unit or the heal's lesser power on all of them, but with an SRPG your choice in heal targets is almost always a matter of who's in range and rarely if ever is there an 'all' choice since you also have other options when dealing with an injured unit rather than in a CRPG which consists of either getting the heal off or hoping to god the enemy doesn't attack that person this turn.

It's the reason why I consider games like Lufia 3 to be a CRPG despite the fact that positioning is everything in that game.
