Nice, I think my enthusiasm for this game is returning in full swing. And this was one of the 3 games I essentially bought the 3DS for...

I'm down with waiting a little longer if we're getting the "fancier" version.

I am, too, but I'm not holding my breath. At this point I might take what I can get...

Finally got up the courage to check out the trailer and it looks...okay. Nothing exceptionally wrong-looking about the gameplay, but overall doesn't look like it's doing much exciting, either. Kind of reminds me of Opoona, actually, another really gimmicky RPG...although Opoona actually had an interesting enough aesthetic that made it feel rather genuine in comparison. I guess I'll wait on reviews before even getting excited about this.

Casshern Sins....is AWESOME

Surprised you're liking that one. It seems to be love or Meh for a lot of people. I was kinda meh just because I couldn't withstand the slow pacing and depressing atmosphere. How far in it are you?

They need to do a free world transfer service for the first month.

That would be great, since I'd love to be in Hyperion, but I'm stuck in Diablos for now...but I know that chances are, even with that, I probably won't be able to transfer to that or any other Legacy server, for obvious reasons...

I guess I don't mind shows being slow, because I did not feel that the pace was that bad when I watched it. I wasn't exactly a patient Teenager when I saw it, either...

And I don't know, I felt like the I got the feeling the show was going for quite well. Granted, I haven't seen an episode in quite some time, but I still remember the feelings of hopelessness. I believe I got up to 11 or 12. I don't want to spoil anything, in case you're not there yet, but there's one fight that I especially liked around then that I felt really nailed that feeling.

I dunno what else to say. I've been feeling like our tastes in mecha have been lining up over the past few years. I can't really say "give it more time", since at this point, you've watched more than I have, I think.

I am watching the Layzners. I have more hate than love for it so far.

Why?

I didn't hear about Gundam Build Fighters until a few days ago, and I'm kinda shocked they're going for another kiddy show when AGE bombed so terribly. Only good thing about the announcement was the HG 1/144 GDX kit coming out. Someday when I'm 45 maybe they'll release an HG Virsago. Oh well, at least I have Unicorn 7 to look forward to, whenever they get around to releasing that...

Wait, what??? When did this happen!?

...well, at least Gundam X is getting a little bit of attention now. :P I could live without it being in a kiddie show, though...

Been watching Hunter X Hunter (2011). I'm up to episode 33. This arc has been extremely interesting, and I think this whole Nen thing is blowing my mind. The fights are also getting pretty good, especially that last one with Hisoka. It took long enough, but this is finally feeling like a shounen anime.

Oh, and did the narrator just spoil something interesting about Hisoka at the end of ep. 32 that probably would've been an interesting surprise?
1420  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Earthbound now out on Wii U VC (seriously) on: July 18, 2013, 08:45:18 PM
I just want a remake of Mother 3. Was there any objection to that?

Anyways, I bought this as soon as I got home...I may have to sideline SMT4 for a while, while I power through this. I'll admit, I've never really played more than 30 minutes of this game before, and it's surprisingly better than I remember. Which is saying a lot.
1421  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Guilty pleasure anime thread on: July 10, 2013, 05:25:29 PM
It's interesting peoples' definitions of guilty pleasure.  Like, someone mentioned Outlaw Star.  To me, that's not a guilty pleasure series.  Okay, it may have been years ago when it was all "mainstream" and I had the mentality of an anime elitist hipster with my head shoved up my rectum.  But, truth be told, I think it's a fun series.  Sure it drags occasionally and the ending is kinda iffy, but the same could be said for a lot of other series.  Few stories can end as beautifully as Cowboy Bebop did, ne?  I know a lot of people out there are on the "Outlaw Star= poor man's Cowboy Bebop" bandwagon, but I see them as two completely different animals.  

I have to say, back when Trigun, Outlaw Star, and Cowboy Bebop were on TV was a solid era for televised animated programming.

Yeah, I gotta agree with you on both points. I'm still astounded someone mentioned Patlabor, for instance. :P

Also have to agree that Outlaw Star was pretty good, and that back when shows like that were on TV was a great time for anime. A part of me misses it something fierce.
1422  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: The favorite seiyuu (Japanese anime voice actors) thread on: July 09, 2013, 11:27:37 PM
I'm more familiar with English Voice Actors, but I can think of two Japanese VAs who managed to really impress me:  Shigeru Chiba (as Buggy from One Piece, and as Vanilla Vartla from Votoms) and Kazuya Nakai (as Zoro in One Piece, and as Witz from Gundam X). Both of these guys do a hell of a job to make their characters memorable from their Voices alone.

I'm a bit worried that they might charge a lot (not too much, more like $50, but that's still more than I'm personally willing to pay for a story I'm already familiar with to some degree). Otherwise, I'm excited by this news. I'm not a big VN fan, but this seems interesting enough that I'd be willing to give it a go.

Are the Original Gundam Movies any good? I never saw them, but I heard they were really rushed. I just can't imagine a 43 episode series translating that well to 3 movies, especially since, aside from maybe 2 or 3 episodes and a few bits here and there, I felt like everything was important in some way, at least to me. Maybe it's my nostalgia talking, but I somehow doubt a few movies could have the same or greater impact than the full series would have. I'd be happy to be proven wrong, of course, since I've never had a chance to see them.
1425  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Xenoblade? on: June 15, 2013, 09:02:33 PM
I just bought a Wii U, and I'll admit, this game had a lot to do with it.
