Hey after all the assholes I saw walking around with naruto head protectors, nothing can truly surprise me anymore.
I've seen a guy fully dressed up as Naruto on the train before. A few times at that.
Since a couple of years, there's an anime/manga/game convention in Montreal. It's pretty funny to look at the 'normal' folks' reactions to all the cosplayers in the metro.
Also, one year, the convention building they used had a scrapbooking convention going on at the same time. The look on some of those grannies' faces were awesome when they saw some of the intense cosplayers.
I've given up on maybe a handful of games in my life and I'm perfectly fine with never touching them again. Usually, I'll stick to it unless it's that bad like Infinite Undiscovery or Eternal Sonata (the game is actually good... but the cutscenes killed it for me, which is not helped by the fact that the game tries and tell you 3 stories at once)
