What a coincidence, I just bought this game, and the premium edition at that. Looks like it'll be worth the price, judging from what I'm reading in the thread.

It's true. I called Gamestop and they confirmed that the listing is indeed in their system. Whether it's a mistake or not has yet to be seen. Said it was releasing April 3rd and others have been getting the same date.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - I'll just say that this show was amazing in every way possible (except for the comedy aspect which fell flat most of the time but did get better in the second half), because there are just too many good things about it to point out. Seriously, if you haven't watched it yet, do so right now. It's seriously some of the best stuff you'll ever see.

Getter Robo Armageddon - I loved it every bit as much as I expected to. On the one hand, the story was very confusing, yet still I actually enjoyed it the most. I don't know why, I just thought it was really really cool. I loved the characters: Ryoma's badassery, Hayato's cool demeaner, Benki's smarts, and all the rest of the characters for all their own reasons. Not one character failed to impress me on some level. I especially loved the character designs, nearly everyone looked unique. Same with the robots. The music and art in general was impressive, to be honest. And of course the action was fantastic, some of the best I'd seen since Gurren Lagann. This is definitely going on my favorites list.

I watched GaoGaiGar up to episode 26 but I had to stop because the rest wasn't dubbed and the english cast does a far better job than the Japanese cast. It's a shame because it was quickly becoming one of my favorite shows.:(

Now I gotta figure out what else to watch until November when I'll resume watching Victory Gundam.

In the meantime, I'm watching Hunter X Hunter every sunday, It's such a good show that it's difficult waiting every week for the next episode, but I have no choice than to wait and just try to keep up with it.

Guillotine

Is it like Mouse trap, but instead of trapping a mouse, it cuts a guy's head off?

EDIT: Apparently I'm not far off. Me want!

It nothing else it's impossible not to appreciate some of the meta-jokes that have been born from it.

For example: If you thought the falling wiener was over the top funny before...

You know, I didn't actually find that funny before, but now...XD

Well, I actually bought the games, so yeah. Anyways, like Kevadu said, I'm happy they made it official so I can just import the darn game...you know once I know Japanese. This ain't no Super Robot Wars we're talking about.
1269  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Nichijou on: October 12, 2011, 03:53:13 PM
Yeah, I tried it, but it wasn't my kinda show. I dunno if it was too Japanese or what, but I just know it made me cringe more than it made me laugh. Of course, Sgt. Frog was the only Japanese comedy series I ever liked, so take that for what you will.

I've never seen an anime that made me cry before.

Ever watched Grave of the Fireflies? High odds of crying with that one.

Well, we'll just have to see about that.

I've never seen an anime that made me cry before. I may have to check that out sometime.

Anyways, I'm currently watching Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, about 50 episodes in. So far it's been great, right up there with the original FMA. It does some things better, like the story, which is more gripping, and the animation, which is more fluid. It does some things I don't like, too, like the increased amount of gory action, and there are other things that FMA did better, like the motivations of the homunculi. Overall, I'd say it's different from FMA and neither better nor worse. Of course, the last few episides could change all that, but I'll be taking a break from it soon so I can watch the original FMA again.

On the side I've been watching GaoGaiGar, a super robot show. It's been getting more enjoyable as it goes, but it's still not great yet. I like the red and blue robots, though. They make the show so much better.

I ordered a bunch of DVDs, consisting entirely of Super Robot shows, so I'll be watching those soon, especially Getter Robo Armaggeddon. Then I'll try to get to the classic Mecha shows I downloaded, especially Fang of the Sun Dougram.

It's adorable and action-packed. Oh and Pirates. Gotta love the Pirates. So yeah, I'm already sold, just show me the gameplay already, please.:)

1274  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nintendo 3DS Launching at $249.99 on March 27 in the US on: October 02, 2011, 10:22:28 PM
Zelda: 4 Swords is free today!  But is it free for everyone, or just ambassadors?

No, that's tomorrow (Nintendo stores update on Thursdays now), and it's free to everyone.

I downloaded it this morning, actually.  Sad that there's no wifi - I won't be able to find anyone locally to play with.

That is how I felt about Star Fox 64 3D, but check this out:

I live with my girlfriend and her two sons (aged 6 and 8) and I realized that the DSi I bought her a few years ago and the 3DS I recently bought her are all able to download this Four Swords iteration.  Coupled with my DSi and 3DS, we have 4 units; two 3DSes for the adults, and two DSi for the kids.

The first five minutes were chaos.  Laughing and screaming, picking each other up and throwing, children punishing adults...  The six year old ran off with mommy, navigating a mazelike environment with unflinching ease while she is helpless to resist.

We began an actual level (the chaos took place in the tutorial level) and the 8 year old was boss.  I was more concerned with the 6 year old getting upset with everyone yelling "go here, come here, DON'T!!!!" that I hardly knew what the objective was.  But, the 8 year old was on point while I babysat the 6 and the woman... because if either of them died, we all have to start over.

What ended up happening is that the 6 year old would start avoiding danger by sitting in the corner until told otherwise, while the 8 year old and I took care of business and the GF looked for rupees.  It was crazy.  This semblance of order still had a backdrop of psychotic laughter and angry girlfriendry (girlfriend-ry), but we all were focused on the same thing, for fucking once.  It was amazing.

I made a big deal out of it in the first place, saying that it's the Legend of Zelda's 25th anniversary (I just turned 28, so I brought up how I was 3 when blah blah blah people love hearing about kids) and you know what... it was taken seriously.  Exploitative, but effective.

Cheers to Nintendo.  They really are the family company.
