All I want to say is...I think you'd have made a better Raven.

Certainly not enough Ravens out there. x)
I do love the Yuri outfit anyways -- I can only wonder why you didn't opt for a wig though. :O
I'd kill to cosplay one day.  Swallow my pride and let the nerd in me shine out.

Or another iOS game.  If we're lucky(?) it might be a 3DSware title.

Apparently the source code had an iTunes link initially, so iOS is probably right.

Deaf twins going blind opt for euthanasia.  A sort of sad version of the typical euthanasia tale since this time "suffering" isn't coming from being terminally ill....  Just a choice they wanted since they were going to be deprived largely of their two most important senses...

Dunno how I feel, really.

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!

Playing with a buddy is probably the best way to play Res6.  Usually the goofy antics between you and a bud help smooth out (i.e. not notice) its flaws haha

And yeah, Sherry is so cute.  I love it when girls can rock that almost boy short hair.  She inspired the grey with white fur Winter jacket I got actually.

Twilight Princess

Easily, most stressful part in the game is racing the Wall Masters in the Palace.  I went into it blind, it's really tricky to figure it out that way, some of the enemy surprises aren't too nice either.  Worst part is probably that horrific noise that plays when it gets close.... SHWEEE SHWEEE SHWEEE SHWEE~!!  *SMACK*

Ni no Kuni is actually a weird deal for me.

See I actually somewhat like Miyazaki films. The visuals provide a nice little bit of surrealism that holds a unique charm even amongst the weird, experimental stuff anime artists do sometimes...but personally I think it only works in bursts. Little 1-2 hour films? Perfect match. A 40+ hour RPG? That completely turns me off. The concept of looking at that art style for that long over a singular story pretty much ensures I'll likely never even try the game. It's a weird pet peeve that this particular work seems to have triggered.

Also I doubly don't understand the appeal it has around here simply because I can recall several times where we've griped about Japan's absolute obsession with shoehorning in 17-belows in as the protagonists with tag-along cutesy mascots into nearly all of their JRPG work. But they throw a game at us with an even younger cast list and a crapton of the mascot types littering the world and somehow that's palatable...the hell? XD

I have more beef with Olivers [?] attire more than his age.  Brown-haired boy with Red cape and Blue tunic, while his mascot takes the other two primary colors on.  I think the main plot is endearing enough, and he seems pretty mature (not one of those headstrong JRPG heroes who acts before he thinks, but he seems like a kind and earnest kid).  That, and he misses his dead mum -- maybe it's the woman in me saying that, but I think it's a sweet plot point and has a different thing going for it than "save the world" as the only motivator.  Ghibli has always done the "stereotype" well, usually by throwing some curve ball to it or keeping things "simple and clean" while the rest of the anime world is getting more and more "whacky".  I agree otherwise about Ghibli, but I'm curious how a world will play it in regards to videogame playability.  If the reviews are strong and the curiosity is high, then I see no reason why not to be optimistic even if Ghibli isn't the most exciting collaborator for a videogame.

Kevadu: A point against the demo was, as mentioned in the topic, a complete lack of tutorials.  But yeah, controls worry me the most, my beef being how visible/swift enemy attacks are versus how sticky the controls are.  Personally, I've never found my opinions of a demo give me the same feeling as when I'm actually playing the complete thing.  Hard to explain, but I suppose an out of context can be a difficult thing to play, and for that I usually try to avoid demos.

Ah well, here's hoping I don't have to stick my foot in my mouth when the game comes out and I end up hating it.

Ni no Kuni ... [it has] blander gameplay compared to their better titles

lol, like what??  I stand of firm opinion that they have to be one of the best companies when it comes to hit-or-miss games.  When they hit, they hit a bullseye, but when they miss, it's because they missed their target by a full 180-degrees.

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.

This is Dice's complete lack of surprise...

Yeah, Squeenix is in a hole it can't dig itself out of with FF13-2-2.  And good on the public for being skeptical; the way they've treated the story for the 13 Saga will not only continue people's superstitions about the number "13" being unlucky, but prove even they've lost sight with what the hell they're doing.  EVen if the gameplay is good, the story (if 13-2 was any indicator) should be a big ball of nonsense.

Maybe I'll ask Mongoosey to buy and ship me a copy haha

IGN loved Ni No.  So I'm a bit more hyped for it now even if the review starts with an open comparison of Tales and Pokéman..... the reviewers surname is Moriarity... that's sorta cool.

Tomb Raider
Last of Us
Xillia, I guess
3DS stuff - Bravely Default will make me very very happu
Vita stuffs????? *
WiiU stuffs (love if they announce GC titles for their store) *

* as a reason to buy the system

I agree that Kotaku is horrible.

Zelda Twilight Princess
Felt like it.  I really, really wanna do Wind Waker after too (anyone selling their gamecube or first gen Wii?  Mine are dying... and it needs to be "not too used"). 

I beat the Temple of Time, I love the hell out of the Dominion Rod, wish there were more chances to use it.  And beat the City in the Sky (whose boss, though easy -- like many/all of them -- is one helluva lot of fun).

I love this game's graphics, I think they're almost perfect.  I adore playing or replaying the game.  I'm sad right now because Palace of Twilight is next, and the goddamn Floor Masters can suck my butt.

New Girl
Continues to be hilarious

Those feel like such New Girlsie colours too!!
I wasn't too crazy about the latest one, it was a cute idea, but Jess was surprisingly predictable for an off-beat character.  I thought the Winston/Schmidt story would have been better to follow.  And dang, Olivia Munn is pretty... I turned gay for her when she did this:

30Rock was pretty good, Office was surprisingly good this week (one of the better ones), and Elementary finally hinted at a Moriarity.

Ah and all 3 Toy Story movies were nice but overrated, imo.
I prefer Wall-e, Up, and Finding Nemo.

Agreed (sorry Mongoosey).

I *love* the Other Guys.  The action bit at the end is a bit long, but I thought it was amazing.

Maybe it's been a while, but I thought the Usual Suspects was good, not god-tier.

I like Hot Fuzz *way* more than Shaun of the Dead (a lot of others feel the other way I find).

A lot of people love Wreck-it-Ralph.  Meh.

Hannibal was a good follow up to Silence of the Lambs.  No, not better, but certainly good on its own merit too.

Layer Cake is one of my favorite movies -- I'm surprised how many give it a passing nod.

The new Tomb Raider 360 controller annoys me.  First, TR had its start on PSX, so I want a special cntroller... SECOND, it has a BANDAGE ON IT>   WHY THE FUCK IS MY CONTROLLER BANDAGED???!

Some VLR/999 Confessions thing on tumblr.  I sympathized with this one since I got the creepy and unsettling and unresolved "Safe" ending at about 4am after finishing a project...  So, I was pretty "mentally" fragile with all the death, freakouts, and disappearing acts.  Plus, it's usually *never* good in those games when someone creeps up behind you.
