Thanks, Lard, I ended up going with E.X. Troopers (and just EX Troopers, I couldn't decide between the two Metal Maxes so I said screw it to them). I still want Original Generations 2, but I figure it'd be best to wait until sometime next year.

Men in Black 3

Very impressive movie. Between MIB2 and my cynicism towards reboots and revivals, I was prepared for the worst, but it actually turned out to be pretty good. It was funny, it was great to see the character dynamic back, the writing was good most of the time, and the action was clever and well-done. I also loved all the twists, even if a few felt forced, particularly the last one. Visually, it was everything I could hope for from a MIB sequel, and the score was very memorable, even if the vocal songs kinda sucked. The only thing I'm really disappointed in is that they didn't introduce any particularly interesting characters, but at least they didn't introduce any annoying ones. Speaking of which, a part of me misses Frank, but after spending so much time with him in MIB2 (IIRC), I think that's for the best.

Oh, and they didn't introduce any particularly interesting weapons, but I'll live.

So overall, it was a pretty good movie, IMO - certainly one of the best series revivals I've seen in the past few years, and a welcome addition to the series. I just hope we see some new characters if they do a Men in Black 4, maybe do a whole different branch or something. After this, I don't think they can do anything more with these characters, and I mean it this time...

Also, what happened to mech shows? I love mech shows =(
Are they really not popular anymore or something?

Seems they're saving them for next year:


Granted Mecha may not be the focus for that last one. But the Gundam remake may be coming next year as well, plus there's the Gundam UC OVA (ep. 6 scheduled for March, last ep could probably make it before the end of the year) and the Code Geass OVA (episode 2 is also coming in March and ep. 3 could come out before the end of 2013, too). IMO, that'd be plenty if it all works out. And if they all turn out really good, even better.

im on stage 47 of srt ogs 2 if you have any specific questions.

How easy is it to understand the new systems without knowing a lot of Japanese? I know I can look at guides, but still...I'd prefer not to. I got through most SRT games without looking up anything, and did pretty well at them, too.

I'll be getting it next week, along with Denpa Men. It'll be a hard wait, though.

I'm thinking of importing a game or two as a late present for myself (Because why not?), but can't really choose between getting Super Robot Taisen: Original Generations 2, a series which I love and have a couple imports of already, or EX Troopers, a game which I recently tried out and had a blast with, along with a Metal Max game (either 2 Reloaded or 3, leaning towards 2 since it's cheaper). The total comes out the same, give or take. I have little experience with Japanese, but that's never stopped me before and I've already found guides for these games, so I think I'll be good there.

Does anyone have any suggestions on which would be the better buy?

If it is Star Ocean, I just hope we don't spend too much time putzing about in Medieval settings yet again...

People are already finding reasons to hate Capcom for this on other sites, and their reasons have nothing to do with the Street Fighter aspect. It's times like this that I positively hate fans.

To me, that looks more like a fan game than this. And that's not a compliment.

Not that I think a crossover with an unrelated series makes for a better celebration of Mega Man's 25th year, but hey, at least it looks remotely professional, with better level design (at least from the snippets we've seen), boss design, visual design, music, etc.
1524  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: NEW MEGAMAN on: December 08, 2012, 05:59:38 PM
I'm all for it at least. It looks creative, I'm just worried about the level design...but it's free, so worth a shot no matter what.

What do you think of Princess Tutu, Klyde?

Outside of One Piece Film Z I'm not interested in anything else...

Was just about to say that. Actually, all the movies seem at least somewhat interesting, but One Piece will probably be the only one I'll end up watching (though I may wait until Funi releases it). This is probably the worst I've seen it since I started paying attention to the Japanese seasons two years ago, at least for my interests...granted I don't think that list included continuing shows that didn't have a season-based name change...

And whatever happened to Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin? We haven't gotten so much as a trailer since it's announcement in June of '11.

Anyways, I spent most of my anime time last month watching One Piece. I went from episode 210 to 352, albeit skipping about 25 episodes of filler, recaps, and non-canon specials. Still, that's 100+ episodes in a very short span of time. At the very least I enjoyed it all, so I have no regrets. As good as this show is, it's getting very hard to convince myself to make it through to episode 381 (when this arc ends), so I'm trying to figure out something else to watch, even though chances are I'll just go without anime for a while. If I do do figure something out, though, it probably won't be a Shounen action-adventure. I think I've seen enough of those for a long while.

Just grabbed the AC Playstation Vita Bundle on Amazon for $179 just a few minutes ago. It just started and is supposed to last all day, but it might go quick...

Maybe I'm just good at drawing stuff in the air? I did used to draw on a chalkboard all the time. Either way, I don't recall having those kinds of problems except for a few times (but not enough for it to be aggrivating). Oh well, it'll be back to the stick controls for me with this version, anyways.

I think Pokemon Conquest is the only Pokemon game that had /gameplay/ I actually enjoyed. I feel like the one on one battles in pokemon are really restrictive for single-player, in the main games.

I'll admit, I do enjoy the Double and Rotation battles more than the normal battles.

I agree with you on Pokemon Black 2. Or, White 2 in my case. I've beaten all 8 gyms and now on my way to Victory Road, but I never felt like there was any reason compelling me to even fight these 8 gyms. Team Plasma shows up once or twice, and you are supposed to stop them, but randomly the game says "but you should get the blahblah badge first!". Why? Shouldn't I be going after team Plasma? Why beating the gym in any way important?

The game puts you in a situation that needs urgency, but makes you do unimportant, trivial things first. I know it's pokemon, and getting the badges has always been the reason for going forward, it's just that it's never really talked about in this game.

You said it. The badges really don't feel important anymore. They no longer unlock the use of HMs outside of battle, so they can't use natural barriers anymore, so they just pull random crap until you get the next badge. It's one thing to say "sorry, you can't go forward until you get the badge" when you're trying to get the first one, but to do it after every badge so far? Especially when there's supposed to be more important stuff to do? That's mad annoying. Oh well, I'm going to Driftville soon, I won't have to pay attention to the story for a while...I just want to catch one or two more Eevees first...

EDIT: Eff yeah! Just caught two more Eevees, and one of them is female! Now I can breed the rest.
