It's that time of the year again!
I did say I was waiting for Kan Colle to be announced before posting the chart ;)

Chart:

Hard to give any recommendation because I know very few of these.

I'd say the odds of me watching the following is high:

Aldnoah.Zero 2
Fucking A. I seriously can't wait for more of this show. Come at me with those crazy cliffhangers <3 <3 <3
If you don't get why the name is in orange, you are dead to me.

Dog Days"
I'm in it for the 'mimi's. Millhiore is just so damn adorable.

HHHNNNGG!!!

Durarara!!x2 Shou
It's been a while since Durarara but I liked it. I figure more of it should be a good thing.

As far as specials go, nothing really earth shattering.

As for movies... I would have been all over that Psycho Pass movie if the current season didn't turn me off completely from the serie.
A new Naruto... yawn...
I guess the only movie worth its salt will be the Uchuu Senkan Yamato one.

Remember that roulette? It's going to be the most fun mini-game ever.

Remember how I said a while ago that I read some Japanese dude was saying event cards are terrible.
I think this is why.

1) I'm going to say something really weird here and say Dungeons and Dragons Online (ddo)
I've been playing this MMORPG on and off with friends for a while and the updates that came out this year were simply amazing. It's rare for an 8-year-old MMO to toss out ALL of it's mechanics (D&D 3rd edition mostly) and start from scratch to end up with a completely new system that is incredibly better AND have the players also be happy about the change. A very gutsy move that really paid off.
Disclaimer: I have spent around 30$ on the game by now so my enjoyment does factor microtransactions (most of the $ being the expansions)

Honorable mention: LoL... I'm still playing that darn thing a lot.

2) Saints Row IV (technically came out in 2013, but I waited for GOTC which is 2014)
God damn this game is incredible. This serie has fully mastered the art of simply keeping the fun in a game and removing everything else.
The superpowers steal the show completely.
The choice of music is also divine for anyone that likes techno.

Honorable mention: Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius (which will receive its last update early 2015! woohoo) & Divinity Original Sin

3) The Banner Saga
While the storytelling is good, I can't say the same about much of the rest. The system is archaic and there are way too many useless parameters. The amount of people under you for example is a huge mechanic and yet it does not serve you at all. Other than getting the happiness achievement, you are hencefort much better served to keep your money and let them starve. Oh yeah, you don't have money either, you need to pay for food with XP... The choices you make aren't choices at all. To make a choice you need long term consequences which aren't here at all. You thus just go on a wiki and find the good answer to every question. Again, there is ZERO consequence to anything other than characters dying which is usually for the stupidest reasons.

Honorable mention: Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky (I'm still hopeful that SC is better though)

---

The lack of JRPG is sad, but most of the ones I played were from 2013 and the Xillia games are like cold pizza, not bad but still far from anything truly delectable. I do need to play Ar Nosurge still though.
I also haven't touched DA:I. Again, waiting for a GOTY/Complete edition.

And so without further adieu, here is mine.

Without further goodbye? Oh wait, further 'ado' =P

Dincrest likes the rock & roll guitarist / singer...
I can't say it's much of a surprise =P

I would have loved for Sneff to be top tier, just because people would have to gauge if they really want his power which comes with his dreadful allure.

Got my first UR with the event in Love Live.
I'm not part of the 'I'll friend this guy just to have a score increaser' club.

Use me ! USE ME !!!

Also, having 2 idolized SRs, it seems the rarer the card, the more the girl wants to bone you in the story.
Someone with an idolized UR needs to confirm this theory.

BTW, for anyone that liked Utawarerumono, I have to say that the blu-rays are 100% worth it for this serie.
I'm rewatching it yet again and the visual remaster is just out of this world.

The second half of SAO2 was actually... good.

I know... it's surprising.

What an odd title to revive.

Hopefully it'll be more playable than OG Xanadu (because lol).

Well, there was Xanadu Next released in 2005, which is supposed to be one of Falcom's best games. Unfortunately, the only official English version was a terrible port to the N-Gage, of all things.

Wasn't there a fan translation for the PC version? Or was that never finished?

So I'm watching a mandatory course about cyber security (for work).
If I had to resume it: stupid people are the worst danger to a corporation.

I also like how they have the cyber criminals wear a cagoule while hacking in the videos.

I hate how swimsuits are now always DLC.
These used to be such a cool part of the game =(

Had enough love gems to do another round of 11 recruit.
Last time I got 1 SR. Smile Nico.
This time I got another SR Smile Nico.

Xillia 2 in 2012, which makes the context about yearly releases false.

It depends as here in NA the yearly release has been true since the 'year of tales' was announced.

Crap! I need to find some wi-fi and do the update then.
