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.

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.

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.

I just bought a Wii U, and I'll admit, this game had a lot to do with it.

According to this source, it's Pysical and Digital in North America, and digital-only in Europe.

Anyways, I'll likely get this to support Sega bringing over a weird Japanese game...but...I don't like Vocaloid. I mean, it just sounds too weird to me.

OK, we can stop panicking.  Both the CE and LE have the DLC costumes and the music CD is the same.  The only differences with the CE are the figure and art book.

Oh thank Go- waiiit...so I'm paying an extra $40 for an art book and a figma I'll never look at? Crimany...I wonder if I can change my pre-order...I do want that artbook, though...

It's not a figma, I think it's the Banpresto one (sorry, had to correct, Figma's are more like anime action figures, this is just a statue).

Also, if you're like me, a collector of loverly artbooks, the CE has a 100 page artbook, the Day 1 edition is a 50 page "character profile" book.

If you're not gonna look at the figure, I can see why you'd bump the order down.  I'm still debating it.

You're most likely right about the figure. I don't know if that makes it better or worse in my eyes. :/  And if the artbook is that big, I think it might be worth sticking with the CE, but I only consider it a $25 bonus, while the extra $15 is just free money for Namdai. They're lucky I like them...

and I'd tell you SEED is great and Destiny definitively starts slow and takes many episode to pick itself up.
One thing is, instead of watching the last episode of Destiny, you'll want to watch the superior movie version "Gundam Seed Destiny - Final Plus - The Chosen Future".
The last episode was really good, but the movie version is incredible.

I actually agree with this, though I suppose I'd downgrade SEED to Good, since it did have its fair share of problems, but I still highly enjoyed it in the end.

That said...
That said, go check out Astray. Lowe is a much better character than Kira, Shinn, and Athrun put together.

I also wholeheartedly agree with this. Astray is the best thing to happen to SEED ever.
1526  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Alright peeps, lets try: Top 10 Favorite Games on: June 04, 2013, 05:39:04 PM
I'm gonna copout by just posting a list with some quick notes on the bottom. I'm just not in the mood to write a lot.

1. Metroid Prime Trilogy
2. Okami
3. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (GCN)
4. Mega Man X
5. Xenoblade Chronicles
6. Solatorobo
7. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
8. Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando
9. Chrono Trigger
10. Gravity Rush

* Yes, I cheated by listing a trilogy as my #1, but I just can't separate those games out in my mind. As far as I'm concerned, they're one big, awesome game.

* Not enough RPGs on this list, but it's tough when there are so many great Action-Adventure and platformer games out there.

* Two of these are actually just placeholders, as I actually haven't played them enough to really say whether or not they're that great. I'm not saying which ones, though. It's my little secret.

* In fact, I've only beaten 4 of these, but I did get at least halfway through 4 others.

* My entire Top 25 is really close, yet somehow this wasn't that hard for me...
1527  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What do you do after beating a fantastic game? on: June 04, 2013, 09:49:25 AM
I jump with joy, write a mile long review no one actually cares about, then go back to playing games for 10 minutes before getting bored and moving on to the next one, until the blue moon rises again and I happen upon a game that actually holds my attention long enough to finish it. Or is a 10-minute-long game.

@Annubis - I watched the entire Evangelion Series during a very difficult time in my life, and honestly, I believe it helped me through it. To put it simply, I loved every bit of Evangelion, even if most of that is just nostalgia. It's an obviously flawed show, right down to the ending, but even that ending I watched over and over again, and enjoyed every minute of it. Definitely one I'll always remember, during a time I'd otherwise rather forget.

Watching Kaiba in what little free time I have, so far....I'm not sure whether to be blown away or blown to sleep...but I think the former...very interesting start.

Is that just the first episode or two? I felt like the sho got really good by Episode 4, and the gets more intriguing from there.

Go Nagai Super Robot Shows are nothing to be Guilty about, IMO...
1530  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: April 19, 2013, 07:55:51 PM
I sat down and watched all 6 current Unicorn episodes in one sitting. Haven't enjoyed myself with a Gundam show this much for a while. Can't believe it's gonna be like half a year still before the next episode comes.

As far the actual story it's really nothing special, but the direction, the music, the animation- everything else just comes together perfectly, IMO. Of course, that might just be me recoiling from how bad Gundam AGE was, and it's a bit unfair to compare an OVA to a TV series.

I dunno, I have that same reaction every time I watch an episode of it, before and after I watched some Gundam series I wasn't enjoying.
