Ah, fantastic news. I sure hope it's a new series. Would be nice to watch a more faithful edition without the filler arc.

Yay, I'm back!

I didn't do much gaming during the entire month of March. All I recall doing is starting up Digital Devil Saga, and playing a few rounds of various fighting games, but that's it. Oh no wait, I played through both campaigns of Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight co-op with a friend. That game was...decent. The acting was worse than usual, the story was terrible, the quotes your units spit out were annoying, and the game was way too short, but it was enjoyable while it lasted.

In April, I got really into Pokemon. I played through HeartGold until I got all 16 badges, Ho-Oh, Zapdos, and the Legendary Beasts. Then I got Pokemon Black and played through it until I got all 8 badges, beat the Pokemon League, and got Victiny, Reshiram, Tornadus, and all 3 of the Musketeer Trio. After that I beat the Pokemon League in Emerald. Then I got some more pokemon in Red & Blue (Going for completes in both). After that I played my other Red for a bit. Then I messed around a bit with Pokemon Yellow, Gold, and Silver. Between all that I played some Civilization IV with a friend. Unfortunately I didn't know that the only win condition the game was set on was through annihilating your rivals, so I kept going for the ISS win only to research all the tech then realize that I can't build the ISS.=( Oh, and before all that I played some of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. Played through the Egytian Portait, whatever it's called. I'm sure I'll get back to it eventually.

May has seen the most variety so far. I picked up Red Steel 2 at the end of April and played through 6 missions of it. It's everything I'd hoped it would be so far, I can't wait to get more into it. After that I played through another scene of Zone of the Enders: The Fist of Mars. I really should play that game more, but I waiting to pick up a legit copy before I really dig into it. Then I played through another map on Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2. I think I make this game out to be harder than it really is. Episode 10 took a gazillion tries but a lot of it was due to my own stupidity. After that I started a new game on Tales of Phantasia. Got to the Long Valley in about 3 hours, which isn't too bad I guess. I skipped a bunch of side stuff, though. Then on Sunday I finally started Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition, which my friend had gifted to me when it went on sale last Monday. I was immersed right from the get-go, and I think I really picked it right for my class and origin - I'm a Daylish Elf Archer Rogue. Lastly, on Monday, I played Dragon Warrior 1 for the GBC. I got the Pixy Flute, leveled up to Level 8, and got an Iron hammer. Then I fought a Golem, and died. The Pixy Flute didn't do jack after the first time.=(

So yeah, that's all the gaming I've been doing for the past two or more more months. Hopefully I'll be here more often so I won't have to make such a freakishly long post about the same subject again.

Fadedsun - Five Stars

Had a very reasonable price, prompt replies (mostly), package arrived as described and undamaged.

Didn't need them anymore. Plus I found out that models are fun to build, but once I've done that they just collected dust. Made it all feel pointless. If I could do something with them, I might've kept them, but they were too fragile to play with.

Yeah, I enjoyed its light-hearted nature as well, which is actually pretty odd for me. Though I do go through me phases. I guess I'm in a light-hearted phase right now since I've greatly enjoyed two humorous anime recently and I've also been reading some comic strips lately. Speaking of comics, I'm tempted to try the A!MG manga, though 49 volumes is a lot to catch up with.

I recently finished off Ah! My Goddess (OVA). It's a story about a man who ends up getting a Goddess as a girlfriend and their not-so-normal life together. It was pretty good, a good mix of humor with a somewhat compelling plot. I'm normally not a fan of slice of life or humor, but this one was actually quite enjoyable. I just felt like it did things just right, though it's not without its flaws. The first episode rushed too much, and I didn't care for the awkwardness of episode 2. With that said, I did greatly enjoy the third episode and the drama of the last two episodes.

I should also take note of the dub, since I'd say it's pretty good for its time. My copy is dated 2001, and I'm not sure if it was dubbed before that. For an old dub, the voices really fit the characters, and the actors really seemed to do a good job delivering their lines. Really, I'm impressed.

All in all, I really liked it a lot, and it convinced me to go try out the TV series, which I hear is even better. I might also give the Movie a try, assuming I can get my hands on it.

AnimeNation forums.

Did not know you were a member there. What's your name there?

As much as I want those anime, I ain't got the games you want.:(

And you are a Gundam fan! Too bad I tossed all my models years ago...

Parents dragged my in to see Rango. It was alright, I mean, it had it's moments. Plus I haven't seen a western in a long time. A fun watch, but not necessarily a recommended one.

I heard something about their farmland being underwater now.

Damn, I was really looking forward to playing PSP RPGs on my Phone.:( Looks like I'll have to get the NGP after all.
1152  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Squeenix turned down licensing offer for Blood of Bahamut. on: March 09, 2011, 08:18:07 PM
How much does the PSP version differ from the SNES version?  If you guys really want to play the game, the SNES version is always available in Japanese (unless you can find *something*).

If we're still talking about the same game, Blood of Bahamut is a DS game, which has nothing to do with Bahamut Lagoon for the SNES. So in other words, it differs a lot, yeah.
1153  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Squeenix turned down licensing offer for Blood of Bahamut. on: March 09, 2011, 07:45:12 PM
...or maybe they just got lucky. Either way, we don't get what we want sometimes and we have to deal with it.

Truest words, for better or for worse.
1154  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Torchlight is out on XBLA. on: March 09, 2011, 07:43:32 PM
I already have it for the PC but I'll play the demo just to see how the controls work.
1155  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: March 09, 2011, 12:07:40 AM
Dice, you're making the wait even harder than it already is.=P

Recently finished:

Idol Project - Well, this one really surprised me here. It's about A Girl named Mimu who wants to be an idol just like the Yuri, an idol loved by people everywhere, and who just so happens to be ruler of the world. The plot gets pretty crazy from there, so I'll try not to spoil much. I had never really heard of it, nor did I really know what it was about, but I assumed it was a cutsy comedy. And it was, but I enjoyed it much more than I expected. Specifically I really liked the characters and art, and I loved the humor, and I normally don't go for comedy. I also liked the story - it was decent, and did a good enough job of holding my attention and making me wonder what would happen next.

The world(s) in particular were interesting, and the sci-fi/whimsical fantasy setting really helped it hold my attention. They were very imaginitive and surreal, though perhaps I should come to expect that from an anime. Still, it surprises me every time.

Oh, and I can't forget the music: There was a lot of vocal songs and I thought most of them were pretty good. I wish I could get ahold of the soundtrack, but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Probably too old.

The Voice acting was decent, but I probably should watch it again in Japanese some time, since as much as I liked the english cast (mostly because I recognized them from Martian Successor Nadesico and other anime I liked), I think the Japanese cast would've been better. Just a hunch.

You know, I actually had a pretty solid complaint about this show, but I forgot what it was.:P EDIT: I just remembered what the one big negative I had with it was: Fanservice. It has a LOT of it. Not the worst I've seen, and some of it was pretty entertaining, but it still got on my nerves sometimes. Overall I'd say it was pretty good. Lots to love, loads to laugh at. It was very surreal and fun to watch, nice to listen to, and I enjoyed pretty much every minute of it. I did have to skip some stupid parts, but that happens all the time when I watch comedies. Honestly, people hate watching them with me.
