I consider the butt an "exit only" zone, thank you.

Why the hell aren't the "other two holes" good enough?  Talk about greedy!  SHEESH.

Even here, when I write about it here, I know most of you don't really give a damn, and I'm honestly just stroking my own ego, but I can't stop doing it anyway. I feel a need to talk about it, but know I shouldn't really. Basically, I'm sorry for always bragging about my feats, especially if it comes off as bragging. I'll try to cut back on it some...

Dude in terms of posting stuff that nobody cares about, you're never going to beat me :P
Well, I always pegged your ramblings as simply humorous anecdotes more or less, a joke about real events. Plus, you're random about what you write, so it always comes off as something new. My shit's getting tires, I feel.

A lot of posts by a lot of people get ignored.  If I had it my way, everyone here would see and join in how much I love watching New Girl, Attack on Titan, and come around to playing Star Ocean 4 (read: for its battle system).

You know what, I was planning on only watching the Shingeki no Kyojin anime.  I hadn't read the manga, but I had heard really good things about it.  Still, it struck me as the kind of show that I would rather see animated, for whatever reason, so I patiently waited for the anime to come out.

Then I watched the first episode and loved it.  And I remember Dice saying you had to read the manga.  So my curiosity got the better of me and I took a look at the manga...next thing I know it's 4am and I just plowed through 10 volumes.  Woops.  Seriously addictive series.  Things are nowhere near as simple as they first appear...

PS: What's with the "Attack on Titan" name?  I was always a little confused about that.  I would think "Attack of the Titans" makes way more sense as a translation of "Shingeki no Kyojin"...but I realize now that "Attack on Titan" is what the author put in English on the actual manga.  Is this just an Engrishism or is there some deeper meaning there...

Daaamn right son.
I hate to act like this, but the material is really different from any manga I've ever read, and like I said earlier -- it doesn't really feel like one either.

I'm enjoying the anime just fine, obviously still too soon to really judge, but I do thing the gruesome-factor (that looks like it may be "PG-13'd" or translated into a hot-blooded-action-anime) helps to really give the weight of the series: The struggle that humans are really using every last trick in the book just to survive, and the absolute terror these people live in (and displayed so casually in the manga of people in the streets getting gnawed on or showing a person with a missing head or a limb in a Titan's mouths).  It's clear the people in the comic are pretty fucked up and generally scared to even fight at all -- I mean, who wouldn't be??

Manga Spoilz:
And a big round of applause to the few "wham episodes" too:  Annie's identity was a strange and scary reveal (esp. when the "titan smile" came kicking in), the "stuff inside the wall" is just all sorts of degrees of fucked up and weird, and I *loved* how they just stuck in the true identities of Bert and Reiner for the bottom of the page.  Which reminds me: the books *deserve* a second read, hints about their identity are literally everywhere.

But none of that was more weird and eerie than the hairy-ape titan... the fuck is that thing???  For any Chronicles of Narnia savants, it sort of reminded me of Shift...

11 books in already though.  No idea where the fuck it can go.

Oh damn...
Noboru Yamaguchi (author of Zero no Tsukaima) died on the 4th and it was announced publicly yesterday.
The guy had been battling a cancer for some years and, after delaying it for a while, made the last season & last volumes of ZnT when he felt a bit better.
I can only imagine the dedication he had toward his serie.

I didn't like the series, to be honest, but I hate hearing when someone passes away even if I'm just familiar with their work.  Amazing he went through it all though.  So god bless, and may he rest in peace.  I was pretty sad to hear when Nujabes had died; I thought he was a great talent.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortion clinic doctor who carried out abortions passed the legal 24-week mark.  This happened back in 2011, but this is the first I've heard about it (I'm guessing the issues in covering a story like that are deep in hot water about "what's suitable for TV", protecting people, and it's not as if the voices against abortion aren't loud enough already -- but choosing to *not* cover a story is is certainly an issue on its own).

Y'know, I got thoughts on this, but I'm just gonna leave and go to bed.

WTF Yoda you drink boxed wine? What are you, my mom?

He certainly sounds like mine. :(

I have the worst luck with head phones.  It's been almost ten years since the pair I loved, I'm so close to giving up and dropping way too much money on Beats by Dre's... the sound is good, the fit is comfy...and the price is ridiculous.

I got a *reallly* good pair of earmuff headphones, bass boost and all that, but they're waay too tight, and with it pressing against glasses, it just makes me head hurt.  A lot of the plastic ones that wrap around your ear don't fit me, and the buds usually fall out easily (especially while I'm exercising or, in Canada, when competing with layers of clothes and a winter coat).

I think the Vita will become the "second" PSP (in regards to its legacy).

I'm with you Dice; I really don't like Milla's outfit. I do, however, [gay]love her hair design[/gay]. I dunno, it's just so big, and thick and full, I can't help but love it.

I love it because I wonder how it all fits on that scalp without one hair splitting into two hairs but of the same thickness.  Then I get confused and assume her hair just divided by zero or something.

I get frustrated with her hair when I think about washing it....

The story makes me grind my teeth in a different way: The chemistry is so good and the characters so amusing that the fact you get such limited interaction with them is what bums me out.
6116  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How's Resonance of Fate on: April 11, 2013, 03:25:36 PM
I personally loved the hell out of it -- best thing is that there really isn't a damn think like it.

PS; john woo action and shit

^warning: gross
I'm not into the birthing of demons/worms/animals or all that "flesh monsters/tantacles" stuff... I just don't get it.  But two each their own
Kinda makes me sad when a good artist resorts to pornographic art...but, ah well.  The technique I guess is what matters.

Sorry about the pooch situation. D:

How Animals eat their food

Kangaroo and Whale were great...

The internet doesn't always deliver.

For Yoda.

You mean Millas? Her beach outfit was even more stripperific, though.

Also, I would imagine licensing fees provide significant hurdles for anime-based costumes.

Yeah.  Damn shame, because seeing Mami strut around in 3D would be awesome. D:

Also, I think what I'm trying to say is that the beach one at least tones it down and makes her wear something less tacky, because it's just simple.

AGENT: I love your Wonderwoman Idea. o_o !!!  Or in a Rogue outfit.  Holy shit why aren't Marvel/DC joining this!?  Haha

Probably not, but I don't look forward to paying another $4 just for a swimsuit for one character.

Honestly though, her beach outfit -- hell, any outfit --- is more appealing than her standard hooker attire.

I'm guessing we're going to be nixed from the anime-related DLC (hopefully we get the Madoka ones?  Those were kinda cool and it's relevant here...two years after the Japanese release...) but get the rest of the beach, maid, cameo clothes.
