Planning a trip to LA in March. By then I'll have had it with Chicago's gray death winter.

Never been to California.

Thoughts? Prayers?

Make a pitstop to one of the best Mexican food places in LA... Guisados. http://www.yelp.com/biz/guisados-los-angeles-3. California burritos are great, but I recommend mini tacos. They're easier to finish. Have fun with traffic if you have to get around the city, LA traffic can be hell. Good luck!

Winter 2015 can't come soon enough.

Uh...I've got news for you.

::In my best Dunban accent:: Electric Gutbuster! What... Giving up the sword already?

Yeah, in all seriousness Winter 2015/Spring 2016 is probably more realistic for U.S. localization. I have to admit I was disappointed with the New 3DS Xenoblade port. In the Nintendo Direct they said the port was handled by a different team that was responsible for bringing Donkey Kong Wii to the 3DS, so not Monolith Soft. I played 100+ hours in Xenoblade, so I got a little burnt out chasing all the mini-quests, so by the time Xenoblade Chronicles X comes out my body will be Reggie, haha.

I'm perplexed. I'm not one to vent on this forum as I don't post often enough to weigh in on my opinions, but I've got to get this off my chest.

I'm trying to follow the amiibo mania availability/release news and my mind is exploding, lol! There was launch amiibos, second wave, third wave. Certain amiibos that only work for certain Wii U or 3DS games. Or data that gets erased if you apply an existing amiibo to a new game. Not sure... I liked today's Nintendo Direct, but I can't help but feel a little lost. Thankfully IGN's wiki guide has cleared the air a little at http://www.ign.com/wikis/nintendo-amiibo-figurines/Amiibo_Figurines.

Then there's exclusivity of certain amiibos based on which retail store you shop at (i.e. Shulk being a GameStop exclusive). I'm not trying to collect all of them, God no... because that would get crazy expensive. Specifically if you're going for a rare amiibo that quickly ran off the shelves like Marth (announced today that more will be coming in supply this year) or Wii Fit Trainer (seriously?! lol...).

Funny thing is that I haven't bought one yet.

I can't make up my mind on which one to buy that will have a general appeal to the games I own on Wii U and 3DS now and going forward. I've casually looked at different stores and from my own experience, the stores can't keep any amiibo's stocked. Who would have thought that amiibos would be such a hit? At first I was confused too because the figures look similar to Disney's Infinity and Skylanders. Sigh. I'm going to take a deep breath and make up my mind later.

Thanks for letting me vent guys! Your bud, Orson.

- And finally, there was absolutely nothing in here about SMT x FE goddammit (seriously Nintendo, you announced this two years ago, and I already know more about a game that was just literally announced two hours ago than I do about this; no seriously, god fucking dammit).

I thought that was weird too. I think last year's E3 update was that they shelved work on SMT x FE (Wii U) in favor of Code Name S.T.E.A.M (3DS). I honestly didn't know they were working on another FE title for the 3DS until I saw today's Nintendo Direct. I did like the opening cinematics though, very cool. Judging from sales posted at http://natmonitor.com/2015/01/05/microsoft-and-nintendo-report-strong-sales-for-2014-holiday-season-to-sonys-dismay/ from last month, I kinda assumed work would speed up on SMT x FE. I guess we'll see as this year progresses.

I'm now curious as to whether this new FE 3DS title will take advantages of the New 3DS XL button/features coming out a month from now. Or how about Amiibos? It might be cool if these Fire Emblem Amiibos (Marth, Ike, Lucina and Robin) would do something for FE: Awakening player stats or this new upcoming FE IF title. I do know Amiibo support was announced for S.T.E.A.M..

Loved the new footage of the game with this morning's Nintendo Direct! I hope you're right about the localization Aeolus. Winter 2015 can't come soon enough.

That Zelda picture is awesome! Is it from the same artist, Akihiko Yoshida who does Final Fantasy Tactics and Brave Default art? If so, is there a page where his renditions of other video game characters show up? That would be a good archive to look at.

Not sure if it's just me getting older, or being content with what I have at my age, but nothing really jumped out at me this year during the Black Friday/Cyber Money special deals online that I thought to myself, wow! I gotta have that. Anyone else land any cool deals?

Back from a much needed vacation from big island, Hawaii. Awesome trip touring volcanoes, beaches (sadly no turtle sightings), Mauna Kea summit star viewing from 13,803 ft. Probably ate the most fruit in a week vs. the whole year with all the papaya, lychee, coconut and pineapple goodness. Got a dozen bites from mosquitoes and a shallow cut across my big toe from boogie boarding too close to a reef (whoops...).
