Been in a webcomic mood lately. Read through Thunderpaw: In The Ashes of Fire Mountain yesterday, and I'm in the process of reading through Zoophobia. Also thinking of re-reading 8-Bit Theatre again, but considering how long it is, I'm not sure I should read it when I have such a back log - I recently found Codename: Hunters and Lackadaisy, both of which seem really interesting. Most of all I found Hiveworks and I want check out some of the comics there...

...I'm sure we have a dead comic thread I could bump, but I'm too tired to look for it...

I hope so. All we're really doing is arguing semantics, anyways.

I don't get pac-man. :(

Axiom Verge. I need someone to gush with.

Wait, that just came out today, didn't it? THAT's why I wanted to go to the store to pick up PSN cards! At least I have tomorrow off, too...

No, I mean Sherlock Hound. The whole thing was one big reference to it. It even used the same character design of Sherlock right at the end there. Brings a tear to my eye. Loved that show when I was a teenager...

"I'd like to walk into a clothing store" <-- words I will never say ever. I'm looking forward to the day I just walk into a machine and my old clothes simply melt and become new clothes.

Or the day when I can walk out of the house naked without being arrested. Either one will do.

Maybe I really should just invest in a private island in the pacific ocean. Then I'll be able to walk around naked talking to coconuts without being judged!

...Coconuts don't judge people, right?

"Hard" in terms of difficulty is a very subjective term, in that what determines a hard game depends on the skill of the user. It only means that it challanges your skills beyond what you are usually comfortable with. By adding "super" to the mix, it implies that it requires a great deal of skill and effort, perhaps beyond what you feel you are capable of, or at least willing to put into. The idea of hard seems to imply that it is something one can surmount with enough effort, but you have to be willing to do so.

However, What you described for your examples is what most would call "cheap". Not hard, just cheap. Frustrating. Unfair. Impossible. When I think of a hard game, even "super hard", I think of Super Meat Boy, Mega Man 3, Castlevania 3, etc. Games where the challenge is simply learning the stages, honing your reflexes, and putting in continuous effort.

Which is why I rarely play games like those anymore, since these days it's hard enough just to get myself to start a game up, let alone play it...

Sherlock Hound. ;_;

Been craving a rogue-like so I can easily just jump into the game and play. Which would be better for that:

Shiren the Wanderer DS
Shiren the Wanderer Wii
Chocobo's Dungeon
Guided Fate Paradox

Or should I just hold out for Etrian Mystery Dungeon and hope I still care by then?

I just can't handle that kind of super hard gameplay.

"Super hard gameplay" sounds like Winnie The Pooh's Home Run Derby, Ghosts 'n Goblins or Battletoads to me rather than Souls or Bloodborne to be honest.

No, "Super hard gameplay" sounds like a game that's very hard. No need to split hairs...

Pretty sure Trigun's ending was just because they were catching up the manga and the series wasn't doing so hot in Japan, and by now the author has moved on, so that's the only animated ending we're likely to get...

@Aeolus

1) Yeah, I think I mispoke there. It's an adaption of a novel. I meant it seemed like a pretty good adaption. However, I now see that she did indeed only do the art. You can blame ANN for that, I swear when I first heard about it, they had specifically written the article to make it sound like it was all Hiromu Arikawa. I had to look on Wikipedia to even find out it was originally a novel...

2) Nope. The Trigun Writer's still alive and writing. Unless the articles on Wikipedia and MAL are both out of date...

3) I've not watched a lot of Rom-Coms (like, in my 23 years on this Earth, I've can count the number of Rom-Coms I've seen more than a tiny bit of on one hand...), but I'm mostly in it because of the robots, and the tragic aspects associated with the fact that the main character's job is to turn them off because they're defective.

Also to be fair, I may not keep up with any of these in a timely manner, just like every anime season since 2010.

In order of hype:

1) DBZ Movie!!!!

2) Arslan Senki - I checked a bit of the manga it's based on (which in turn is based on a novel) and it seems to play up the writer's strengths [who had previously done Fullmetal Alchemist and Silver Spoon], so I'm all for this.

3) Blood Blockade Battlefront - The trailers seem extremely cool and I know the writer of the manga (who also wrote Trigun) was up to snuff. Here's hoping it delivers.

4) Ninja Slayer From Animation - It looks and sounds really neat and Studio Trigger's working on it. Hopefully I'll like it more than Kill La Kill, considering it's supposed to be a homage to hyperviolent anime of the 90's I indulged in a few years ago.

5) Sidonia Season 2 - Been waiting too long to finish this series!

6) Digimon Adventure Tri - I wanna get digital. ;_;

7) Punchline - I'm pretty much guaranteed to get sick of this show after an episode or two, but I'll try it anyways. Seems like it'd be a nice guilty pleasure, at least.

Also, more Gintama is great, but I'm too damn far behind...

Also, the Third Code Geass Akito movie/episode's on it's way! I doubt the DVD will be out this season, though, so I have time to watch the second episode I didn't even know released...

Adding Plastic Memories as #6, moving the rest down a notch and making the whole total about 8...

Also, in other gaming journing news: Type-0 side missions are a bag of dicks.

Wait, is that a good thing or a bad thing?

^I am always on the top of the page when I ask questions like this. Otherwise I'm on the bottom. I swear, I can't win for losin'.

Eh? Legend of the Twilight is available on Hulu and Funimation.com, and the latter is even selling the DVD set for $30...which isn't bad for Anime. RightStuf might have it for cheaper, though.

Then again, .Hack Roots is selling for the same price, and that has 14 more episodes, so I guess that wasn't the best deal...
