You are thinking waaaaaaaaaaaaay too hard about this.

The hair colors don't mean anything.  It's not supposed to be died or anything else.  These are highly stylized characters that don't look particularly realistic in any way, so why are you freaking out just because they don't have realistic hair colors?  If you were to suddenly plop these characters into a realistic setting their bizarre proportions would be far more disconcerting than their hair colors, and yet you seem perfectly fine with that.  But you then go and write four paragraphs about how their hair colors are unrealistic.  To me that just seems like a completely arbitrary thing to single out.

In short, the hair colors are not intended to be realistic nor are they intended to carry any meaning.  This doesn't bother me in the slightest and I'm not sure why it bothers you so much.

Type-0 looks like it will have all that and more but it is, of course, not out yet...

TitS all the way!  Starmongoose is right that it starts kind of slow, but it's not like it's bad or anything.  It's just that they focus more on character development at the beginning.  Which means that when shit does go down (as it inevitably does) you actually care about the people involved.

LoH: TitS is my favorite game for the PSP.  Everyone should play it.

 I'm baffled that these commercials are Japan-only.  It's Harrison friggin Ford!  The concept for the commercials is perfect.  Remove the Japanese subtitles (it's not like Harrison Ford speaks Japanese so his comments are in English anyway) and bam, you're done.

(By the way, if you want to watch the commercials the official site won't let you without a Japanese IP address, but unsurprisngly the vids are floating around the youtubes already.)

Type-0 got 39/40 in Famitsu.  Wonder who gave it the 9? ;)

I'm glad slice of life exists while a good portion of fandom is busy with what's "moe" right now.

You say that as if those two things are incompatible.  Clearly you've never watched K-On.

I just finished watching Hanasaku Iroha. I'm speechless right now; while certainly not without flaws, the entire work is just so charming, and the characters feel so real (because of those flaws), that I couldn't help but totally fall in love with it--and them. It's been a while since I've had such a hard time walking away from characters when there is some actual closure, and I can't wait for the "new visual work" next year.

Extremely impressed. If you like slice of life/coming of age stories at all, I highly suggest it. The animation is also very crisp and vibrant, and nearly the entire cast feels fully realized.

I completely agree.  One of the best shows of the year.


I'm struggling to find something similar right now. Though I definitely don't expect the same animation quality from, well, anything, I'd really love something with the same "feel".

Slice of life animes are not uncommon, but ones of this quality are.  I wracked my brain trying to think of something similar and all I could come up with was Honey and Clover.  It's an older show, but if you haven't seen it then I would quite recommend it.

How does it undermine the point?  The point was to make money off of used game sales, which is what they are doing.  I completely agree with Maxximum, here.  It's impossible that Gamestop is doing this without paying WB for the privilage.  First of all I don't even know how else they could get the codes, but even if they managed somehow they would be sued six ways from Sunday for doing this without permission.

If anything I think this demonstrates how massive Gamestop's margins on used games are, since they can afford to buy codes without changing their prices.

What kind of icing are we talking about here?  If it's that canned shit then good riddance.

I used to be big into hardcore combat flight sims on the PC (which is pretty much a dead genre now...).  The manuals with some of the old Jane's flight sims were godly...they weren't manuals, they were textbooks.

I kinda wish Vita (and 3DS) was digital only.  It'd force the issue.  Why do the Japanese rebel against this technology?  It's the ultimate gaming convenience.  You could theoretically download a game at the stroke of midnight, never have to worry that they will be out of stock, and it's only a few button clicks away.  Why would anyone prefer to waste gas driving to a store (or pay bus/train fare), fight a potential crowd, risk inventory being out of stock for a physical copy? 

You know that Sony is requiring that every single Vita game is available digitally, right?  So if you want it to be digital-only, it can be.  What is there to complain about?

Cleary I go to too many conventions because I looked at that line and thought: Not that bad.

Interesting that the 3G version is doing better than the wifi version.  When I talk to folks around here about it nobody seems interested in paying the extra for 3G.

Is this overall, or in Japan? Because I imagine not knowing how exactly it'll work in America PLUS the fact it's AT&T really doesn't help.

I'm just commenting on opinions I've heard in the US.  I mean, it seems like literally nobody is excited about the 3G version.
