= I don't get runes much yet.  People make this game sound easy, but I remember the opposite when I played this as a young'un.  Soo... I'll do my best. :S
Suikoden II is as easy as you want to be. Depending on your party set up the game can be broken easily. 
= Good god the music is divine.  The perfect east/west influences in suitable melodies and perfect instrumentation.  Who could as for more?
...funny enough, the main battle theme is balls (or it gets better, but 20 seconds too late).  Then again, I can't say any Suikoden has really impressed me in this aspect here... =/
Suikoden I and II are up there for best music in any game series up there with Trigger/Cross for me. Thank the lucky stars Konami realized it was gold as there are over A dozen arranged albums for this series.
= Fumi Ishikawa is an outstanding artist.  I don't blame Konami for using her twice in a row.  Hell, any Suikoden artist has a super formidable task of creating at LEAST 108 unique characters (+ important enemies/NPCs) and is able to do so without making their style look repetitive whereas there's a ton of artists who are waaay too guilty of "same facing" (like, for example, Tony Taka and Nomura)
The amount of detail and care put into character design is  suberb. Even the fodder 108 members  are nicely detailed.

Ai Tenchi Muyo!......how can you make a series that has Tenchi as the protagonist be this bad? Even Tenchi in Tokyo is better then this crap.

Well it is something. I don't mind more rpgs on stream but I wish some other company would have jumped on the steam boat then Compile/Idea factory. That said i'll definitely pick up the Rebirth games and Fairy Fencer.

So, being unable to play much Suikoden today due to a recent surgery, I mostly just browsed the internet looking for various things to keep me amused, when I happened across this particular piece of awesomeness: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12ZF-1MzVkw

Back in the mid-90's, if you were an RPG, and your names wasn't 'Arc the Lad II',, you didn't get no fancy anime adaption. However, there was still a chance of getting a manga adaption or, if you were lucky, a drama CD or two. Suikoden must have hit the jackpot, as it received a full-blown radio drama which retells  the story of the first game, with some liberties taken of course.. Of course, most drama CD's aren't all that accessible due to usually staying in Japan, and being in Japanese. Not so with this one. What we have today is not only the Suikoden radio drama translated, but applied to sprites and maps from the actual first Suikoden game, edited to accord to the radio drama. The result is the closet thing you'll get to a Suikoden anime, and for people who've played the game, it's a must-see.

But wait, there's more! Turns out that the same guy responsible for this also gave the Suikoden II Drama CD the same treatment. Neither of these are real substitutes for the games themselves, but again, for those who've played these, these vidoes are just so enjoyable. :D
good find. will watch later.

Urobuchi didn't write Psycho Pass 2 so not surprised it turned out to be a train wreck

IMO don't skip 1 if its on psn. One of the major strengths of Suikoden is the attachment you gain for characters as a few key ones make appearances in the later games.You can skip Suikoden 1 but you are missing out on a lot of lore and other little things that  overall enhances the experience. It is not like 1 takes a long time to beat as you can 100% it in less than 15 hrs.

Berserk still got nothing on the Evangelion manga.

At this point, they may as well say it's been canceled.

WTF?! It FINALLY came out 2 weeks ago apparently

It just took 2 entire years to make one volume. Which sadly isn't the longest it took to release a volume.
Volume 11 - June 19, 2007
Volume 12 - April 3, 2010
With the pace Miura is going I would not be surprised in the least if he beats that Evangelion  gap between  volume 11  and 12 in the future. He has gone on an erratic release schedule, even for something as slow as berserk.

Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc
Stylish and fits the actual song well. I like most Gorillaz  videos in general.

You're slipping Annubis, I don't want to be the new guy to post these every season.

Anyways, a bunch of season 2s have already pertained to my interests, let alone some of the less crappy new stuffs.

I'm waiting for the chart that has Kancolle.
I just can't find it ;)
It is not a fall anime anymore. it was moved to winter season at the earliest.
