ToL:  Started Grune's quest.  
I almost got my assed kicked at the alter of the sea.  I used a handful of life bottles on that fight.

Wooo!  Atlus is localizing Contact for the DS.  It's by the makers of Killer 7.  In related news  Atlus is also localizing Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation for the GBA.  Anyways, back to Contact:

Here is a link to IGN's little write up and some pictures.  http://ds.ign.com/objects/761/761628.html

For those of you too lazy to click the link here is what is written there:  

A fantasy RPG for the DS. The story of Contact begins when an elderly professor, making use of a strange item called "element," crash lands his space ship on a strange planet, and with the elements now scattered across the planet, he can no longer get his ship off the ground. So, the professor enlists the help of a young local boy called Cherry in collecting the elements, as helping the professor is the only way that Cherry will be able to get home.

Cherry can stick multiple seals to himself, resulting in added powers. Seals can also be used to attack enemies who get in the way of your travels. Come across an elemental, and you'll want to use a seal to suck it up. Also, a costume system earns Cherry new skills with seven outfits (a fisherman, a cook, a pilot, etc.) along the way. Cherry also has magic and weapon-based skills which you also gather as you work through the game.

Here is the official press release:  

Atlus U.S.A., Inc. Announces Contact™ for the Nintendo DS™

An Offbeat Action RPG Packed with Hunting, Cooking, Fishing,
Training, Collecting, and Romance!

IRVINE, CA — March 3, 2006 — Atlus U.S.A., Inc., a leading publisher of interactive entertainment, today announced the acquisition of the North American publishing rights to Contact, an action role-playing game for the Nintendo DS. Developed in Japan by Marvelous Interactive Inc., Contact is scheduled for release in the summer of 2006.
"Contact is the rare breed of quirky RPG that attracts a rabid fanbase with its whacked-out story, setting, and characters," said Tomm Hulett, Project Lead for Atlus U.S.A., Inc. "I'm excited that gamers will be able to spread the fever to thousands of others with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection."
The klaxon alarm is shrieking! Something is wrong! The Professor wrestles his damaged spaceship to a crash landing on a mysterious planet.

In the aftermath of the crash, The Professor discovers that the power sources of his ship, known as Cells, have been scattered across the surface of this strange world. To retrieve them all, The Professor enlists the aid of a brave young man named Terry—and a brave video game player known as you! The Professor and Terry will ask for your help during the course of the adventure, using the Nintendo DS to “contact” you along the way.

Will The Professor gather the Cells and return to outer space? Will you learn the goal of the mysterious organization that seeks to gather the Cells for itself? The future of an entire world has been placed in your hands!
CONTACT Key Features:

Abundant gameplay activities including animal-training, item-collecting, monster-hunting, and old-school mini-games!
Dual-screen functionality with mission maps, interior/exterior viewpoints, and more!
Real-time combat with special abilities and powerful “Decal Attacks”!

I like Japan quite a bit, but I don't worship the place.  I do like showing off the stuff I get from there since it takes years for America to get those things (I'm talking small stuff like pens etc.)  So yeah, I do envy them to a certain extent since they get cooler things sooner.

I also find myself routing for them secondary to America in things like the Olympics.  Of course I am Japanese-American and I lived there when I was 5 so that's why.  

Oh I've dated a guy who was/maybe still is into anime and rpgs.  He often said he wished he was Japanese.  I have a feeling that one of the big reasons he dated me was because I am Japanese-American.  I can't confirm that, but it has made me wary in dating pro-Japan folks.

I'll end up going, depending on the reviews.  If I don't see it in the movie theaters then I'll see it on dvd.

The trailers look very promising.  It also has Sean Bean whom I adore.  But I don't want to get my hopes up.  I've been disappointed many a time by video game to movie adaptations.

Oh and I've played SH2 and got the soundtrack to SH3.

ToL:  Still on Jay's quest.  
I got to the part where he betrays the party and kidnaps Shirley.  It's awful seeing him beat up by Solon like that.  I find that to be very disturbing yet I don't bat an eye during the game battles.  Anyways, Shirley and Jay are back in the group.

I also saw on a show about home remedies, that if you put your first urine of the day on your face, it will help get rid of acne.  Needless to say, I've never tried it so I don't know if it is true.  

Oh yeah.  That man has problems.

Unfortunately reading this thread has peaked my interest in some series.  

So I must ask, is Twelve Kingdoms that good?  For those of you that have seen it, do you think it would be something I would like based on my post about my favorite anime series/movies?  I'm asking because I saw the dvd box sets selling for $60 a piece.  That's $120 for the whole series.  I've never seen one episode so I need to make sure I won't regret the investment.  The plot sounds a little like Escaflowne and to be honest I didn't like the series.  I didn't hate it, but it isn't something I would watch again.  Thanks in advance.
833  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Atelier Iris Grand Fantasm -- new game! on: March 02, 2006, 09:51:20 PM
Oooh.  Is this the game that Logick mentioned getting a postcard of?

Anyways, I hope it isn't a PSP game too.  Lately I've been deleting NIS's emails I get since all they talk about are PSP games and plushies.  

I'm waiting to hear more info on Atelier Iris 2 and Ar Tornelico.

Okay, I can't believe I'm admitting this, but I watched a made for tv Disney movie.  I've been hearing all this stuff about A High School Muscial and how it is number one on the charts and has 5 singles on the top 40.  So I had to check it out and surprisingly I liked it.  It was nice to see that the nerdy group didn't look like the stereotypical nerds, i.e. the ones with thick glasses and no fashion sense.   They were regular people who were just smart. In fact the lead girl was smart and pretty.  I thought the whole movie had a good message about being yourself and not being boxed in by how people perceive you.  The songs were pretty good too.  It was a lot better than the crap songs they have the winner of American Idol sing when they win.   The only bad thing I can think of is you can tell they are lip synching when they sing, but it still doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the movie.

My favorite anime series is Boys Over Flowers (Hana Yori Dango).  I've watched the whole series over a dozen times in Japanese and in English.  I bought the domestic release of the entire seires and I'm getting all the manga.

The other obsession of mine is Fruits Basket.  I love the humor and the message it has.  Again, I have the domestic dvds and am getting the manga.  I'm even considering getting a Kyo knit cap.

His and Hers Circumstances (Kare Kano) is a very funny, well written series.  Not only do I have the dvds and manga, but I got the soundtrack too.  

As for movies, I really liked Whisper of the Heart and Voices of a Distant Star.  Whisper of the Heart is a feel good movie that celebrates the innocence of first love.  Voices of a Distant Star is the ultimate long distance love story; it made me bawl my eyes out.  

Other series I enjoyed watching, but aren't obsessive over:  Kenshin, Trigun, and Gungrave.

Can't we all just get along?  ;_;

I find it funny that a Yesian would be so negative.

Ah this was the question posed in the mailbag here.  It's funny since dozens of people will reply on the boards but you'll probably get only a handful of letters.
838  The Rest / General Discussions / This is serious, people. on: March 01, 2006, 12:19:42 PM
Hmm.  I voted yes.  It's my people pleaser side kicking in.
839  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Kingdom Hearts II on: March 01, 2006, 12:16:33 PM
I'm a big RPG fan and a Disney fan so the game is right up my alley.  Despite some problems with the camera,  I really liked the first game.  I even did extra stuff which I normally skip.  So heck yeah, I'm buying this game when it comes out.

I'm with V-Dawg.  There are a lot of games coming out this year that I'll get excited over when the release date is closer.  

So as of now, I'm looking forward to Shadow Hearts:FTNW, Suikoden V, Kingdom Hearts 2, Metal Saga, and Steambot Chronicles.
