The Conoe River Train Crash of 1950 involved two trains colliding in the Rocky Mountains, killing over 21 people, including 17 soldiers being shipped out for the Korean War.

I just want to mention I honestly was liking the story of World Trigger when I watched it, and I think the battles could be just as good in Manga form since they aren't so flashy. I might have to give up on the anime version and start read it instead, because the pacing was killing me. Not even just the overall pacing - every single episode felt like it was dragging things out as much as possible. I couldn't take it anymore, even the Jin fight couldn't save it. :/

@Dice - I've been meaning to finish Magic Knight Rayearth for quite some time...and damn, you're really tempting me now. XD Maybe once work lightens up a bit...

Rocket Slime was my Gateway drug to Dragon Quest, and while it was a rocky road, I definitely don't regret it.

Looks like the iOS bubble blew in their faces. Though, with all the reports from various sources, theories and discussions in and outside of gaming circles about Konami since its restructuraction that have been piling up, makes you wonder how much of this one should take at face value.

I'm actually wondering that, too. That report specially could easily be sour grapes taking things out of context or blowing things out of proportion...

Just saw Ant-Man with the folks and my bro. Wow, that was better than expected. Hell, I'd put it up there with Guardians of the Galaxy, at least far as the mix of comedy and action go. The story had its moments, too, but mostly I'm just glad it didn't take itself too seriously. That was my biggest problem with Super Hero movies for a while, and seeing the Super Man VS. Bat Man movie trailer trying sooooo hard to be dark and melodramatic really reminded me why I need to see movies like Ant-Man as a counterbalance. It's very refreshing to see a movie where the stakes are still high, yet there's still so many laughs throughout. Just gives the whole movie a rare kinda charm.

So you'll probably be able to handle most of the scenes in Hunter X Hunter and probably the anime version of Toriko (at the very least, I've seen up through the Arc with Tommyrod. I don't know if it gets worse, but Toei is largely a kid-oriented studio, so I doubt it).

They toned down the Toriko anime a ton, actually. Like, going from TV-14 to TV-Y7 levels of sanitizing. If you can handle seeing Tien lose his arm while fighting Nappa in Dragon Ball Z, you can handle that scene where Toriko gets his arm chopped off while fighting Tommyrod. IIRC, there wasn't even any blood, it was just a black spot on the wound...

I guess I should warn that Hunter X Hunter also has a few scenes where people lose their arms, and it has no less than 4 decapitations, though most are at weird angles so you can't see much. One of them did involve an enemy getting back up afterwords, though, but that was way by the end of the series.

Platforming looks a bit floaty, but otherwise, that looks pretty exciting. Maybe some time before it comes out, I'll try my copy of VP: Lenneth. I hated the PSOne version, but that was a long time ago, and I thought VP2 was great. Maybe I'll like Lenneth next time?

i tried getting into this but it just feels like a poor mans magic the gathering.

It kind of is, but with faster pacing and great Freemium mechanics that make it addicting to play. It's genius on their part, and I play it far more than the Magic video games, which are a major step down in terms of features.

I've been wanting to get into a new anime/manga series for a while now so I signed up for the free Crunchyroll service a few days back.

I've been intrigued by Food Wars, so I started there with the first episode. I found it funny, and the premise definitely seemed fresh. Unfortunately, while I know it wasn't as bad as many anime series out there, the pervertedness was a turn off to me, so I don't think I'll continue watching it.

Any suggestions for new series for me to watch? I tend to skew toward the shonen series. My favorites include Rurouni Kenshin, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Dragon Ball and DBZ, Naruto and Bleach before they became bloated behemoths, and Bakuman. I also really enjoyed the Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. series, though it is a bit of an atypical series for me. I don't like the shows that are super violent or contain dismemberment, which is why I'm not a big fan of Attack on Titan. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Jim, you seen JoJo and Hunter X Hunter yet? Also Ushio & Tora's pretty neat so far, but it just started. The later also had some body parts in episode 4, just to warn you.

EDIT: Fairy Tail and Toriko are on there, too. I really liked those.

World Trigger and One Piece are running as well, but the former has terrible pacing (I gave up around episode 20) while the latter is best taken in chunks due to its sheer size.

Oh, and you'd probably get a kick out of Gintama. It's more of a parody, but it's really funny and has some heartfelt scenes as well.

A couple of screenshots, for those interested.

Holy crap, this does look pretty...

New Darius shmup port coming to Vita/PS4/Windows

I can't wait to blow up more fish.

I ended up giving up on the last 5 simulacasts I had to check out. Dragon Ball Super is still on my "future watches" list, but I have to wait until it's through the Beerus arc, so I can get see some newer material. I'll try God Eater and Snow White with the Red Hair in a few weeks, but I'm just not that enthusiatic about them. God Eater looks cool, but I don't recall the games having a worthwhile story, and Snow White is shoujo, which I have not had good experiences with in the past...

Overlord and Chaos Dragon were ones I threw on the list before but I honestly don't know why. The traliers, openings, and descriptions just sound terrible, and I haven't heard a good word from fans, either. Overlord especially just had me thinking "why do I want to watch this?" over and over again...it sounds like the most blatant otaku-pandering wish-fullfillment fantasy possible...

....he's been at it for 7 hours now....I think he might beat the story mode at this rate. I had an early shift today, though, so I'm gonna have to kick him off soon, anyways...

Brother's going back to Massachusets for college this week, so we've been playing a ton of games together. We completed Tales of Graces f, blew through Terra's Arc in KH: Birth By Sleep Remix, and now he's been playing DBZ: Xenoverse all day since after lunch. Tomorrow I'm gonna try to get in some Civ 5 with him, we've been meaning to do that again since June.

(Although I'm a little annoyed that Xenoverse has to played in my room...I had planned to clean out my computer's file system today, transferring as much crap to my external as possible, but it's tough to do that when someone who has as good eyes as my bro is sitting right next to me.   -_-; )
