That's because Sega, RoF's publisher, in their infinite wisdom, decided to release it in FF13's looming shadow.  No RPG released within a Final Fantasy window stands a chance.  Even if it is something superior, as RoF was the superior RPG to FF13.  But then again, Sega is notorious for its poor business decisons.

(Thread-res, I know, but it's still a relevant topic.)

Who remembers ADV, that now defunct anime localizer?  Most of their dubs were pretty bad, but I thought their dub of Golden Boy was hilarious.  The English voice actor was an absolute hoot as Kintaro.  It felt as if the guy was made for that role.   

And I really liked the dub for Gunsmith Cats.  I felt that dub worked better than subtitles since Gunsmith Cats takes place in Chicago.  I wouldn't necessarily say the dub was better than the sub, but it was at least as good.

New Score Match starting tomorrow!  Oh yeah!  

EDIT: Hit the brakes, I have an RPGFan project I'm working on as well.  Guess I won't be Score-matching as much as I'd like.

Ages 12-14, middle school, are when boys are terrors.  It's puberty, with the pituitary gland dumping heavy doses of testosterone into a young body, it's like the kid is in "roid rage" all the time, because that's what steroids are- artificial testosterone.  In high school, he'll mellow out because his body will be used to the higher level of testosterone.

That made me lol better than anything my gutter-mind could come up with.

The one SR I really want is another SR Honoka in pajamas, because statistically she's still my best card and if she can be idolized, her stats would be monstrous.

My voice over coach was telling me that Disney periodically does secret hiring drives to find voice actors who can do spot on impersonations of any of their characters, major or minor, to keep in their closet as understudies.  They first started keeping a stable of backups when Paul Winchell's voice was getting too hoary to continue being Tigger.

I'm sure Jim Henson's workshop does this too.  They probably have a closet full of Kermits they can bring out if the main Kermit gets laryngitis or something.

I got that part.  I meant in regards to Seifer and Rinoa, which one is Hambone and which one is Flippy?  Though by Deep Thoughts logic, Zell is Hambone since he has a Dolphin Blow attack.

Just saved up 40 Love Gems. 10 more and I can do an 11-for rare or better scouting.  Yeah!

I'm also looking forward to the next Score Match event since that's when I play more and really get my ranking and bond points up.

Who's Hambone and who's Flippy?

I just finished Alloy of Law.  Enjoyable read, but not as "omg awesome!" as the prior Mistborn trilogy.  It felt more like YA fiction, though that's not necessarily a bad thing.  The epilogue absolutely made it for me, though.  It really thickened the plot nicely and I'm invested to see what happens next.  I'm particularly interested to see how
Code:
Steris develops.  At first I didn't like her because she was a cold, hard, controlling bitch but I feel like she'll grow and develop a lot throughout the series.  She's a character who you'll hate at first, but over time will grow on you.  Marasi's already cool and I want to see her ditch the frilly ballgowns for something more suited to her practical and purposeful mind.  And Wayne's a trip.

Fritz the Cat is one messed up film.  It has some shocker moments even by today's standards.  It almost makes me wonder if we could have gotten away with more then than we do now.  Like are we more straight-laced and uptight as a society now than we were then, though we naturally perceive the past and past generations as stuffy?  Yeah, I think Fritz the Cat is worth watching.

No jackpot is worth risking your hash browns.  

I read that as hash brownies

Just because I used to play in Pool Of Thorns...

EDIT: Anyway, query time.  How do you pronounce Seifer and Rinoa?  Do you pronounce it Sy-fer or See-fer?  I always thought Seifer was See-fer since the "ei" in the name Keith has a long ee sound but most folks called him Sy-fer.  As for Rinoa, is it Rin-o-ah or something like Reen-wah kinda like how the food quinoa is pronounced "keen-wah" and not "kwin-o-ah?"

And again, I'd like to see who's going to adopt the mantle of making that style of JRPG.  My guess would be a smaller indie developer.  Kinda like how luthiers like Sadowsky, or Alleva-Coppolo are doing "Fender" basses better than Fender itself.  With that void to fill, I hope to see someone rise to the challenge and attempt doing Tri-Ace better than Tri-Ace. I'd love to see another game like Resonance of Fate.
