Haven't been in the mood for a comedy, so I skipped Inabi for now. Now I'm watching The Unlimited. Only got through the first episode, but it was everything I was hoping for. The sense of mystery surrounding the main characters definitely has my attention, though I'm sure that'll be cleared up by the next episode, judging by the preview. It's more about the intense action and the world (which you're told very little about so far). If nothing else, I think this one will be very fun. Might dive into the next episode right now...except I got one more episode of One Piece left to watch before I reach my goal post...

EDIT: I made it through the Saobody Archipelago arc in One Piece. That arc was all kinds of awesome. Lots of story and backstory, fantastic action, and the ending was just perfect. I can't wait to see them take on more Pacifistas once they're stronger. I'll be taking a long break, though. I need to save up my strength so I can gun through the next two arcs, and get to the next real excitement.

At a metal forum I used to visit you got a custom title of 'I HAVE NO FUCKING LIFE!!!!!!!!' after you hit 15,000 posts.

What a coincidence, I feel like I'm on the verge of earning that title very soon...

On a more positive note, I've spent the last month drawing for the first time in years, and I'm actually pretty proud of what I've drawn. They're not great or anything, but I'm seeing significant improvement with each one. I keep pushing myself to try something new, or at least different, each time, and many of them have seemed almost too challenging, but ended up with acceptable results. I've only drawn 5 pictures so far, but I think as I get better, I'll start picking up the pace. I was thinking of doing one more pic to make as a profile picture, and start a DeviantArt page, but I'll be taking a 6-week course in Visual Storytelling for Comics in March, and I don't want anything distracting me from that. It's both my only chance to learn that kind of stuff (no colleges in my area currently offer any kind of comic-related class), and my chance to prove to myself and others that I am capable of handling course work now.

Speaking of which, I think I should start reading some web comics again soon, to possibly prepare myself for that course....or at least give me something different to do.

So I've just been informed that on the other website I frequent, I've made 14,269 forum posts and 4444 front-page comments....in a little over 3 years. I've seen people be on sites for almost 10 years with lower post counts than that. Please note, that the site in question is a Nintendo website, and I stopped caring about Nintendo 3 years ago. G-d knows how much I would've posted if more people talked about games I genuinely cared about. Really, if it weren't for their surprisingly good anime community, I probably would've left there long ago...and that's looking more tempting than ever.

Hm...looks interesting. I'll have to keep my eye out for more info.

While I normally don't trust Japanator as far as I can throw them...that seemed like a pretty sound review. I didn't have high hopes for this game, but it really sounds unenjoyable, which is disappointing in and of itself.

People just want somebody to blame all the world's problems on, like everything will get better if only one thing were to happen. It's really childish, you know? The world just isn't that simple.

I wish I just had 4 games in my backlog. Now I have 400...oh wait, that's what I started with when I started Backlogging. Now I have 800. It's not supposed to work that way!!! ;_;

A remake of Landstalker with a turnable camera, or at least a different perspective, would be great. It was a good game, just the platforming was really frustrating.

All glory to XSEED. I've been looking forward to Ys IV and Rune Factory 4 for a very long time now (I seriously bought the Vita on the promise of Ys IV, though some of the other games on it have also made it worth it). I know someone who'll be very happy about Valhalla Knights, as well, though I could never get into the series.

Adam Sessler was one of the hosts on X-play, back when G4TV actually still did video game stuff. He was always the more realistic of the two hosts, so I generally enjoyed his views on games they reviewed, but Morgan Webb (host #2) was hot....so yeah.

Yeah, I always liked him, too. I'll always remember when he talked about people complaining about their near-perfect score of Killzone 2 (their review actually got me interested in the game, and I'm glad they did, it's my second favorite FPS now)...albeit vaguely.

 I always found his cohost annoying, though. Plus, sometimes I felt like he was trying too hard to do...something. Just the way he talked or did something sometimes seemed...counter-intuitive, iirc.

I think it's actually an internet channel where he talks about games. Kinda like what he was doing before, only on the internet: http://revision3.com/games

I just got a free 30-Day Crunchyroll pass, so I'll be watching this season's stuff soon. I just gotta make a list of what I want to watch...there are so many...

Good G-d, I finally made a list of all the shows I want to try, and there's 24 total. Granted, I added 2 or 3 for the helluvit, that I may not want to watch in the end (I'm already dreading Encouragement to Climb, for instance. It's premise sounds alright, but it looks like moe fluff, and that's the impression I'm getting from the various people who watched it).

I already started with two episodes of Amnesia, and I quite like it so far. It's story intrigues me, though I'll admit the main character is hard to watch. She seems like a silent protagonist that they decided to have talk, but not much, so it makes her seem really weird and spacey. I know she has amnesia, but apparently she's always been like that...

Still, it hasn't quite grabbed me. It's close, maybe one more episode would do it, but I think I'll move on to something else, then come back to it a little later.

So, next up: Cuticle Detective Inaba. I'm really looking forward to that one.

It's a spinoff of the original Devil Summoner.  Pretty much if you've played like Persona 2, you should know generally what to expect.  Two rows of characters and 90s era RPG combat.

Okay. That's all I needed to know. Seriously, I couldn't find anything explaining that much. =P

Ooh, a Martian Sucessor Nadesico fan! I always loved that show, and that avatar brings back memories.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind a remake of Phantasy Star II that I could tolerate. There's a diamond in that rough somewhere...

I kinda don't want a Shining Force IV, though. I feel like Valkyria Chronicles has picked up that torch, and I'm liking where they're going with it.

Can anybody explain Soul Hacker's gameplay to me? I seriously could not find a single scrap of info on the battle system. I suppose I could check GameFAQs, but I'm afraid of running into spoilers...

Pulling up the wiki for the game will gave you the results you need right away: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil_Summoner:_Soul_Hackers#Gameplay

One of the selling points of Soul Hackers for me is the soundtrack; here's the entirety of disc 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=VTVWjNwGnLU

It doesn't even mention the battle system.
