I tried to list things that weren't Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Fairy Tail or some other well known big name.

I also didn't list those tournament fighters because most of them aren't really anything special.
Who here wants to watch Beyblade?

I guess there's Shaman King that's a tournament shonen fighter, right? I never watched it myself... so can't say.

There's Shaman King, Blue Exorsist, Soul Eater (which I swear he said he saw some of), JoJo's, Hitman Reborn (which you listed. I blanked on it earlier), Hunter X Hunter (2011), Dragon Ball (not Z. A lot of people never saw the original, which is way different from Z), Gintama (more of a comedy I guess, but it still sorta counts), Beelzebud, Fist of the North Star, Rurouni Kenshin, and Yu Yu Hakusho. All of Which I enjoyed much more than Naruto, Bleach, Inuyasha, and Fairy Tail. Those four are bottom of the barrel in my opinion. Not Better than One Piece, though. That show is the shiz, man (I dunno if Klyde would be into it, since it tends to be very silly a lot of the time, though).

In addition there's The Law of Ueki, The Flames of Recca, Buso Renkin, Elemental Gelade, Mar, and Rave Master, but I either never saw them (but heard they were mediocre) or saw them a long time ago, and don't remember anything about them (besides being mediocre). (Mediocre's still watchable, BTW, and I have met one person per show who quite enjoyed each of them, though they are in the minority)

Oh yeah, and there's Toriko, Saiyuki, D.Gray Man, Fushugi Yuugi, Get-Backers, and Samurai Deeper Kyo, which I know nothing about, besides one or two people per show like them. Guess that means I got some more to try.

A good shonen? Hmmmmmmmm lemme think...

PURE BREED SHONEN:
Digimon Adventure, Digimon Tamers or Digimon Savers would be a good place to start.

HIP SHONEN:
Eureka Seven - although I personally never liked the story.

INTRIGUE / ADVENTURE:
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

SERIOUS / DEADLY:
Jyu Oh Sei - which I mentioned in the unknown animes

COMEDY:
School Rumble (if you consider Harima the main character... I know I did)

ALL AGE:
Katekyou Hitman Reborn

SURE VALUES:
Gundams
Evangelion
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann


Mahou Sensei negima is awesome, but only in the manga format. They tried to animate many times and it sucked every single time (The OVAs are good though)

Wow...none of those are shows I really think of when I think of Shounen. Well, except for Full Metal Alchemist I guess. I know shounen just means "for boys", but a lot of people talk about Action/adventure, tournament fighter type stuff that appears in Shounen Jump.

I thought Bleach was great for the first season. It's just that it was never really meant to last very long, and it shows. Coupled with a huge amount of filler, it ends up going downhill pretty quickly in my eyes. Naruto went downhill quick, too, but I think Naruto just wasn't the type of show I wanted to watch. It's mostly arena battling, not unlike Bleach, rather than being an Action adventure show like One Piece or Dragon Ball, where they go around and see lots of different locals.

Also, I thought you saw Soul Eater? That's shounen.

Serious question - aren't IOS rpgs generally considered terrible at this point?

I thought that was just iOS platformers and action games that require precise movement and actions that aren't really suited to a touch screen? And anything that's freemium?

I'll play this if the battles aren't slow as molasses. I hated that you couldn't fast forward through battle text in Pokemon Pearl and Diamond.

That's been fixed since Platinum. Battles are very fast in Black & White.

Reader's Choice: The amount of votes Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story got surprised me, but pleased me as well.

None of the awards surprised me, but they all pleased me. I don't agree that Mass Effect 3 is the best RPG released this year, but looking at the staff Picks, it was obvious it would win out. Plus, it was a surprisingly good year for RPG fans, so the competition was fierce, and my personal fave did get runner-up, so it's all good.

I quite enjoyed reading what the staff wrote, and ultimately this was one of the few yearly awards where I didn't have something to complain about. Great work all around. :)

The names just get dumber and dumber every year...

That said, I think I'll probably get it. And if I do, I'll be going with Fenniken:

CS2 is not free: http://www.forbes.com/sites/adriankingsleyhughes/2013/01/07/download-adobe-cs2-applications-for-free/

Evidently this was for redownloads of existing users, and you need a valid license to use it. They do provide a special code on the download page, however. Guess I'll see for myself.

While I'm still open to suggestions, I'll probably start Kokoro Connect soon. Another looks a little too gruesome for me.

Nice. Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for CS4 to become free. Last Photoshop I used was CS3, and I remember it being pretty featureless and hard to use. This may be too basic, even for me. Guess I'll stick to my Gimp 2.0, as much as I'd rather not...

@Mesh - I still can't believe how many gamers considered La Mulana one of the best games ever. I never liked the freeware version at all, and the remake didn't look a whole lot better to me.

Also, how did they make the hints less helpful???

EDIT:

Beat the 5th Dungeon. Had to use restore points on those freakin' darknuts. They pretty much drove me insane.

Pacing, sometimes likeable characters.
1123  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGz you want HD'd/Remade on: January 06, 2013, 05:03:18 PM
It's not on the VC. Nor is Gargoyle's Quest II. Really wish they were on there, though.
1124  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: January 06, 2013, 09:52:41 AM
I could never finish Ocarina of Time. I always got stuck on the Shadow Temple. :(

Speaking of Zelda, I've been playing the original Legend of Zelda. Just cleared the Third Dungeon (That boss was a piece of cake with a well-placed bomb or two). I think the fourth one is by the south-east Corner...right?

EDIT: Nope, it was near the middle of the Map. Beat that dungeon (Boss wasn't so bad once I found out his weakness was the necks), got two extra heart containers, and now I'm off to the 5th dungeon on top of the mountain.

Rumblings? It's already official.
