There's a fan translation of Madan no Ou to Vanadis, Mickeymac.  Probably not supposed to link to that sort of thing here but if you just google the title I'm sure you can find it.  In fact I think it's the first hit...

Hah, it's even the site that guy uses all the time. Maybe he's already heard of it? Anyways, thanks. And thanks for giving us the heads up on the anime version, I don't recall hearing about it from my usual sources.

EDIT: Wow, he apparently posted about it just yesterday. XD He loves it, even the fanservice scenes. In fact, he said they're some of his favorite fanservice scenes, referencing the bath scenes specifically. :P Just thought I'd mention that. Guess its got two solid recommendations now, so now I'm really looking forward to it.

Wait. This is worth something? WTF!?!

Not sure I understand what you're asking...

I was kinda referring to both his post and yours with the my post. Probably should have thrown in a quote with your name in the author tag and something indicating words to help clarify that.

Basically, from your description and the LoGH namedrop I imagined something closer to Twelve Kingdoms than what I got from seeing it go by before (which was a cover adorned by a moeblob and a short blurb as to why readers should keep an eye on this) which lead me to believe it would be something along the lines of Tears to Tiara or The Sacred Blacksmith (or at worst, Time and Eternity).


Anyways, that said, there are two things you should know about Kill la Kill. One is that it is awesome, and two is that it somehow manages to walk the line between faithfully following the tropes and hallmarks of the genres its in and being ridiculous.

Meanwhile, up to episode 10 of Majestic Prince and the plot remains bland and generic and some of the characters' eccentricities are kinda grating (especially from the two straight men pilots) but the rest of the silliness really helps break up the monotony and the fights aren't too bad either. It also helps that I'm watching two episodes at a time since it seems the show loves throwing cliffhangers at the end of odd numbered episodes.

Also since Hulu finally got around to adding it last week, I've finally gotten around to checking out Revolutionary Girl Utena (I had been meaning to for a while now). Only up to the first episode so far (since my plate currently has Kill la Kill, Majestic Prince, Slayers Next, Sword Art Online (season 2 :v), Soul Eater, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (because I keep seeing it go by and why not, I kept seeing it go by and it's not the worst thing on Adult Swim)), so no spoilers dammit!

And speaking of, got to the end of SAO season 1. Decent show all in all. I will admit, I did lol at calling the final reveal ahead of time (take that Perfect Blue and your perfectly timed reveal).

So this bizarre phony commercial seems to be teasing some sort of Street Fighter PS4 announcement.  Couple little things I noticed: the PS1994 (when the original Playstation came out) on the license plate and the phone number is the date the original Street Fighter was released.

Oh, there's a website too.

Even the source code is old. Tons of deprecated tags.

Edit: oh wait, I know: Street Fighter x Crazy Taxi

A Street Fighter IV x Toyota marketing tie in ("The latest in engineering and design is getting the crap kicked out of it by random thugs fighting in the street!")?

Star should update the OP with stats and stuff

Only as long as Starmongoose gives me a mulligan on SO3. The only reason why I participated in that quiz was to push past it and not let that game kill yet again (and by kill, I mean it pretty much doomed the series to prequels and retcons).

can I just come on in to chat?


Sure. I did that back in the Persona 4 quiz and there's usually chatting going on before, after, and even during the quiz (although don't chime in answers during the quiz until after the time limit for the question in question has expired).

Super Mario 3D World Gameplay Videos & Screens -- All Games Beta

Fire Peach = Best Peach

For reference: The only other time Peach has ever officially donned Fire Powa' was in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. I even believe the color scheme was similar to the one used here.

I kinda hope not.  I ddn't really like the idea of alts in Smash Bros Mellee, I thought it cheapened the game a bit (it's cool on that one hand where you like a character's style but wish they played just a wee-bit differently, but I don't know if it's enough or just a quick way to make a bigger roster).

The impression I got from it was that the alts are not separate characters but straight up alts like how Daisy was one for Peach (except in this case they look to be making different character models but maintaining the same fighting mechanics and roster slot; or in short, I would guess that the Male Wii Fit Trainer will fight exactly like Female Wii Fit Trainer despite any visual differences).


Edit: Mario Galaxy based stage confirmed. I wonder how it'll work?

Suikoden's gameplay/battle systems leave something to be desired, pretty basic stuff (I remember just auto-battling all through Suikoden 5 because there was no need for any strategy at all, way too easy). Building your castle/army though and watching it develop from nothing to something huge is where the fun is at.


As for what I'm playing, Disgaea PSP. I think I'm at the final battle... the boss is like LV 90 and all my peeps are under LV65... guess I should grind? I feel like I'm not playing this game how it should be played though (finding ways to level up fast, and I haven't even touched transmigration). I'm gonna mess around more with the Item World, I didn't do much of that throughout the game. Whatevs.

I don't even know what transmigration is, but Item worlds are fairly important. It's helpful for grinding, they improve your weapons, and they're pretty fun on their own.

Transmigration takes one of your generic team members and lets them start all over again. They get to keep their stats, but the rest you get to pick again fresh from the generic character generator (what this actually means is that this is how you reclass your generics into better versions of their previous class, or into an entirely different class if one so desires, but either way, they're going back to level 1).

I'm sorry, but the Lion Beard should've been a mane.

I cancelled my order. The recent purchase of a Wii U and a Vita plus a mountain of games means.... I'll take my time and put the money towards some apartment furniture or something

Yeah, this season is looking to be absolutely flooded with software, and now that the Vita's about to get Ys Celetica, I think I'm going to go for that instead.

^It was only a dumb joke.

Anyways. Game looks great and a lot of fun, and even though I never had the chance to play Galaxy 1 and/or 2 I'm getting the same vibe out of what has been shown of 3D World.

Does the new Zelda for 3DS comes around the same time as 3D World by the way?

I think they'll both be out on the 22, same day as X-Box One's release.

But more importantly, the same day as the most anticipated game: Mario Party: Island Tour. :p

And the week after that Ys 4 mk3 will drop.

http://www.siliconera.com/2013/11/07/super-smash-bros-screenshots-show-marth-action/

So unless one of his alts is sporting a mask, we're only getting OG Marth (and from the pics, he looks to be just as OP'd as in Brawl).

Aww, but Roy's my boy.

Love the fuck out of Marth, he and Cartoon Link were fun to play as (not normal Link for whatever reason). 


I'll definitely be getting this.... anyone else feel the hype just isn't there like it was for Brawl?  Maybe when we get more unique and the new challengers it will...

I wouldn't say we're not getting Roy, Ike, or somebody else from Fire Emblem. And having thought about it, Lucina might actually still be in this as well, given the fact that the Male WiiFit Trainer is also somehow in (maybe like alts that are actual alts instead of pallet swaps). My previous post was more about my theory of Marth getting replaced by Marth!? (aka Lucina) getting shot critted to hell (though it does make sense since the DS remakes happened between Brawl and now, which was basically a collective remake of FE3 (too bad we didn't get the other half of that)).

As for the hype, I think it's because unlike Brawl, we're not getting an update about some mechanical feature or function like Assist Trophies or stages or other items on a daily basis (we're only getting screenshots this time around which means that they're not really going to tell us anything really different, and the odds of a major update dropping tomorrow or even within a month is highly unlikely versus the every day there's at least something worth checking out Brawl's website for).


@Yggdra: That screenshot is so fake it hurts. Wind Waker has not been confirmed to have a playable stage (it's Spirit Tracks that's representing Toon Link's home field), and the characters are way too small in that screenshot compared to the background (and there's like barely anything happening in said background as well). Nice effort on Lucy's feet though.

While I highly doubt it, here's hoping somebody makes good use of the Fear Effect IP.

Meanwhile Gex can continue to go die in a fire for being almost the epitome of the worst of the 90s.

Suikoden 3 was my first introduction to the series and still remains my favorite among the ones I have played (4,5).  What is this Tri-Ace Suikoden?

http://www.gamefaqs.com/psp/643848-genso-suikoden-tsumugareshi-hyakunen-no-toki

The tl;dr on the game is that monsters happen, time travel occurs, and the game is loaded down with useless or circuitous mechanics (like having three separate bases for each time period, being staffed by completely different people, the majority of which constitute the majority of the 108 recruits of the game (your battle party consists of like 18 people by the end)).
