New from the stagecoach MICKEY the antiquarian

Wow, I am most certainly flattered. Especially by the choice of class, if I somehow manage to maintain my sanity for more than 5 seconds, you will be a rich man. Plus, I have been perusing a lot of old pulp-fiction sci-fi novels, lately, not to mention my fervent love of old games.

Which reminds me, I have a new NES game to try once I'm done with the dishes...

*After checking* Yeah all the Outer Senshi jump up, kind of my faves from the series too at any rate.

I should hope so, the real outer planets start drastically increasing in size after- *NGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH*

...Sorry, I kind of had a nerdgasm there. I'm gonna go get some paper towels...

Yeah, I gotta finish the first one, too. I will eventually, it's just that I left off at a very difficult point. But honestly, I'll probably need to grind a lot now just to remember how to play. :P Brave Default was quite easily one of my favorite Turn-based RPGs, up there with Chrono Trigger in my eyes. Except unlike Chrono Trigger, BD seemed to fully utilize its combat system, so I never really got bored, per se, I just got to the point where I felt I needed a break because I had been playing too much at one time. I seem to burn out on games easily...

So, what's my job and what exactly is Big Sexy Female Dincrest ordering me to do?

You're a plague doctor, man. You cure the sick. Or get people sick. You make bank either way.

Sad thing is, Square-Enix has tried making good mobile RPGs before, but apparently the market for paid content just keeps drying up...like certain people predicted woulld happen when "Free-to-play"/freemium games started becoming commonplace. Guess it really was a race to the bottom. Oh well.

Yeah, that's not a shotgun pump, that's just part of the axe head so it stays secured to the barrel, and it only looks like a pump since that potion is not solid, since obviously there's enough metal at the front as it is. Honestly, I'm impressed how believable they're trying to make it look. The handle design also looks surprisingly comfortable, while the stock is extra thick, but curved so it's less likely to impede the axe swing. I hope one of those novelty blacksmiths I saw online take a crack at it, I wanna at see if it at least makes for a decent axe (it's bullets are probably magic though, so I wouldn't count on it ever making for a real dual-purpose weapon). I mean, they kinda ruined it with that counterweight at the end, but I guess it has it has enough weight at the front that you wouldn't actually need the stock to rest against your shoulder...

I can't even begin to figure out what the topic of this thread is supposed to be.

Wait. I thought he won Kanto League (and then promptly got dissed on as merely graduating from Babies League while in Orange Island hell)?

No, he lost to Gary, who then lost in his next match, which I'm not even sure was the finals. I'm pretty sure he won against Gary in the Johto League, but I think that was the Semi-finals, too. Gary quit after that, and inspired Ash to abandon all of his pokemon (and old clothes) before he went to Hoenn. Which I remember being really angry about as a kid, even though it was actually kind of refreshing...

...Or, wait, was that after the Kanto League? I know I missed the Final season of Kanto, but I could've sworn the next time I started watching again, Ash was in the Orange League, and it took about 3 episodes before I finally realized they were in a new region I'd never heard of (at first I figured they were island-hoping to Cinnebar...I was waiting for them to find the Ice Cave and encounter Articuno...).

EDIT: A 5-second google search proved me right the first time. So yeah, Ash v. Gary in Johto, Ash won. Except it was the Quarter Finals. So Ash lost to a Hoenn trainer, setting that region up...but then that guy lost the Finals to a nobody we'd never seen before off-screen, just to rub salt in the wound...

Ash didn't even make it to the Finals in Kanto, supposedly. He lost to Ritchie via forfeit because Charizard went out of control (I remember watching that years later in a rereun, at least. I also remember that I had see that in the comic adaption (of a manga adaption), and thinking "Wow, that was too brutal! I can't imagine Pokemon ever fighting that hard! This sucks. I hope I get to see it on TV someday, there's no way the cartoon would ever go that far!"...that was the only event in the comic that was actually true to the anime adaption. The only difference was that there was more blood in the comic, and they were more explicit that Ritchie's Charizard would've died if the battle continued).

And then Ritchie lost the Quarter Finals to some chick they only introduced at the start of the league, and then they never showed anything after that, but she lost in the Semi-Finals, and we don't even get to see who won the finals...

...And I just got done fixing all those typos, guys...

...I mean, I ma or may not have taken a nap in between, but still, my shame is still embeded there for all the see...all to laugh at...I hear them...

...I'm gonna get some more sleep. Maybe tomorrow I'll finish Iron-Blooded Orphans...or at least Season 1...damn Sunrise...and you, too, Sunrise, Inc.

Even Yokai Watch is a frustrating experience simply because of the basic battle mechanics that essentially make every single encounter - and I mean every one - a Pokemon style "hold-down-b-D-pad-up-turn-the-entire-gameboy-90-degrees-south-by-southwest-starboard-towards-the-leftmost-star-of-the-southern-cross-while-hoping-on-one-leg-alternating-every-third-time-you-scratch-your-knee-all-while-keeping-in-time-with-a-beatboxing-bear-from-missouri"-style crapshoot. You have no control over anything you do, it's all just luck, but it keeps trying to make you feel like something you're doing is actually improving the situation, even though you can never tell just what that is, seeing as the battle screen is chaotic and has tons of moving parts you have to keep an eye on and interact with.

...At least, the first one's combat was that bad. Second game seems to be more of the same, too, from what I've seen. The third game finally threw all that out the window and replaced it with Megaman Starforce's combat system (though, perhaps without the random deck of cards, the trailers I saw didn't show much of the second screen, so I can't say for sure what's going on there), which I certainly approve of, and it's not like Capcom's using it, so may as well. Then again, anything is better than what they had before.

Anyone watching Alderamin on the Sky?  Another show that wasn't even on my radar screen really but I gave it a shot and it was surprisingly quite good.  At least if you like quasi-realistic strategy-and-politics-heavy fantasy stories (which I do!).  It's not a new idea or anything but recent attempts at this kind of story have been very disappointing (*cough*Vanadis*cough*) so I was pleasantly surprised by how grounded the show feels.

I almost forgot about it. I figured it'd just be more Harem Light Novel crap. I remember the trailer looked hopeful, but then the summary sounded really generic, so I decided to hold out, which I guess led to me forgetting about it completely. If it doesn't devolve into a power-fantasy, or ham-handed romance involving multiple under-developed characters all vying for the attention of a cardboard cutout like some kind of hatchling in a nature preserve, I'll give it a shot in a few weeks...as I mentioned before, this season is rediculously dry for me, and next season isn't looking much better so far (still too early to call, though).

Half-Minute Hero was hilarious greatness for about an hour or so.  But then its repetitive and linear nature really starts to show.

It essentially has 4 different games, though. Just mix it up.

The Longest 5 Minutes is now coming to the west for the Vita and PC. Looks to be another game kinda like Half-Minute hero, and I like the story idea it's got going on there. I never did finish Half-Minute Hero, nor did I play the sequel yet...I guess I'll get on that.

Finally got to this week's episode of Dragon Ball Super and... it's possibly the best Dragon Ball episode ever made.
Top 3 for sure.

Toriyama is really killing it with his return to the serie.
I'm pretty happy Hollywood demolished Dragon Ball with that shit movie and made him come back to it.

Even better than the Drivers' Test episode? I don't believe it.

Anyways, of the shows I've been watching, I'm finally done with that garbage fire that was Gigantic Formula. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think I might have found something that would've stood to have benefited massively from doubling down on its racism. If every country in this lame, even for a knockoff, G Gundam copycat were represented as badly as the USA, this show would've easily gone from a Gigantic Waste of Time to a Comedy Goldmine. It would've helped offset the otherwise supra cereal/boring ass Gundam Politiks, the 15 or so episodes (of 26) of 20 minutes of boring exposition for a bunch of Gundam rejects/5 minutes of their near-effortless Worfing and inevitable irrelevancy, or the episodes with the actual fights that consist of 15 minutes of Gundam Politiks and 5 minutes of the MCs getting jobbed, then 5 minutes of the villain breaking off the attack to say "I'm winning so hard, I'm just gonna stop now and be more evil. What can possibly go wrong?" followed by the MCs pulling yet another powerup outta their ass and clowning them completely in record time.

Honestly, I'm impressed you even finished it. I only knew about Gigantic Formula after reading about a manga that's basically the comedy Goldmine you were referring to, except with Majong instead of Giant Robots, but at the time I couldn't find any scanlations, so I went searching for the next best thing....but somehow settled for Gigantic Formula. And thanks to that mental block, I'll never remember the name of that manga...

...I'll only remember Super Aryan Hitler, the greatest and most feared majong player of all time (and may or may not have been the devil, I can't remember).
