Okay, enough about Gamestop and more Tactics Ogre!

I played the first couple battles just now and I've got to say it's awesome. Battles run very smoothly and much faster than on the PSX version. I was a bit overwhelmed with some of the changes they've made to how classes and experience work. I have to get used to the new skill system as well. Experience isn't given individually anymore, which is awesome. Units level up by class. So, if I recruit a new warrior and all my warriors are level 4, that warrior will bump up to level 4. No more wasting hours in training mode leveling everyone up one by one. Another plus is being able to view past story events again through the Warren Report.

Sounds good, though what's different about the skill system?

GRR! Want this game so bad! But I'm not even sure I could play it what with not understanding Japanese and all.

That does sound like a lot of fun. It also sounds like torture to do with a movie so long @_@.

I watched Millenium Actress and it was freaking amazing. The only movie I haven't seen of Kon's now is Perfect Blue, but that will be coming soon. The man sure was a genius.

I still gotta watch both those movies.

I still need to finish the last five episodes of Zeta Gundam.

You should, those are my 5 favorite episodes of the entire show.

I never saw Fellowship of the Ring the whole way through. I should do that sometime.

I just saw The Last Airbender. It was not the travesty I expected. They stuck to Book One and were pretty faithful as far as I could tell. Sure the acting needed work, but it didn't distract from the good writing and cool effects. All in all, I really liked it.

I firmly believe that Unbreakable is the best thing Shyamalan has ever made. Even better than The 6th Sense.

Agreed, it really is a damn fine movie.

"Dr. Strangelove."

I liked it. Missed a few bits (the problem with being house manager sometimes) but it was definitely enjoyable, if a little slow at first.

I also love Dr. Strangelove. I'll agree that it's slow to start, and I actually thought the ending could've used a bit of work, but all in all, I enjoyed it a lot.

Man, I can't possibly afford all the games I want. I still need money to buy Final Fantasy IV Collection, The 3rd Birthday, and Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3. D=

And Yeah, I'll be waiting it out for the Ultimate edition of Dragon Age II. Hell, I still need to get the first Dragon Age Ultimate Edition.=P

Holy shit, I just checked out the anime section on Hulu. I was considering a subscription at, but considering they have Trigun, Monster, Death Note and several others in their entirety, I'm going to just take what I can get for free.

Yeah, I was really impressed with Hulu's anime selection, too. If I weren't greedy, that site alone could satisfy my anime needs for several years!

I' about 12 episodes into Monster. Its good, but I don't see the greatness everyone else sees yet. Unless it happens later.

I liked the manga from what I read of it. I should pick it back up, I only got halfway through the first volume, or maybe check out the anime. I hear there's a big twist somewhere that makes things really interesting.

I started watching Kashimashi again anyone else seen it.

I have not seen it...but I want to.

The good news is that Samurai Champloo is great as well, if you haven't given that a peak.

I found 20th Century Boys at the Brooklyn Public Library, so I'm now on the third volume. This may be the best manga I've read. The pacing is nearly flawless and Kenji is very likable. I'll write a more eloquent post on this later, once I've finished the third volume.

Samurai Shamploo is great, but I never saw it through to the end. I will someday though.

And I've heard great things about 20th Century Boy. If I didn't detest reading so much, I'd give it a look myself. Now I'll just wait for an anime adaption if there isn't one already.

I've been watching a lot of anime lately, more so than I have been gaming. Checked out Crunchyroll a while ago and watchged a few episodes there. Now I'm watching Super Dimension Century Orguss 02 and Mazinkaiser. Gaint Robots rule!

I rarely finish games either, but I'm gonna try my hardest to finish this one.

Also, every time I go to gamestop, someone recommends me this game. Hopefully that'll mean good sales. It seems like it deserves it.

Yeah, I love Meguro's tracks in all the games I've played, which so far have just been Nocturne, Strange Journey, and Persona 3...well, okay I didn't love P3's music, but it blended well with the rest of the game.

As for the character designs...yeah, not liking those either. Not a deal breaker but it's still a bit worrysome I suppose.

I thought both Baten Kaitos songs were very good, but otherwise I have to agree with Hell Snake. Those other songs were just awful IMO.

Last Night I dreamt of Resident Evil 6: It had Nero in it for some reason, you could use evironmental objects as weapons, and it had a slight sci-fi twist to it.

Ridge Racer's way, way easier to localize and is (or at least was) an easier sell here. Personally I'm mostly disheartened that it seems to be some sort of "Let's jump on the bandwagon Burnout started!" thing rather than keeping a unique identity.

Same here. I always respected the series for always being Ridge Racer and keeping the old Arcadey racing alive, for better or for worse. Now it just comes off as a shameless clone. :sigh:
