So, yeah, what was your first anime?

Technically, I could say something like Voltron, Robotech, Mysterious Cities of Gold, Transformers, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, or any of the other 1980s cartoons I watched as a kid but didn't know were anime... But the first anime I watched that I knew was anime and I watched it in Japanese with subtitles was Devil Hunter Yohko.  I have a funny feeling this explains some of my anime tastes.  The series itself wasn't top tier and there were some continuity issues, but I loved it all the same.  One thing I found fantastic about DHY was the music.  All the vocal songs were stellar and the music pieces that played during the series, especially the battle scenes, were all killer too.  

So what was your first anime?

On my club ride today, I was going to go with the C+ group, but they had too many people and the short-distance B group had few... so I decided I would try to push myself and go with the faster paced group; faster pace than what I'm used to.  I kept up pretty well, though the heat was rough on all of us.  I went through 3 water bottles (4 if you count the one I downed driving home).  37 miles, I was hurting a little at the end but am good now.  And, knock on wood, my knee doth not protest badly.  I'm so glad I pushed myself, broke plateau and can now cal myself a B rider.

I discovered something amazing! Nightmares are a lot less scary when viewed from a third-person perspective. That zombie thought she could sneak up to me, but I could see her without even having to turn around. Shooting a bow this way feels weird, though, so I may have to consider a new weapon... And okay, the new perspective didn't change the fact that the zombie was my sister and I was about to shoot her in the face, so... Yeah.

I've gotten used to the fact that sometimes Nightmares aren't all that bad...

I know what you mean. The ones that are basically just a bunch of monsters aren't so bad. I've acquired so many tricks over the years, fighting back has gotten easier and easier, and sometimes these dreams even turn into something fun. The worst are the nightmares that can't be 'solved' with violence...

well, not sure how much interest there will be but it's finals day for Combo Breaker 2016. There's all the fighting games you expect but of particular note is the mystery game tournament where players are thrown into a different mystery game to compete in each round, usually games no one ever knew existed such as a space jam and jurassic park game with hilarity ensuing.

https://www.twitch.tv/bgcallisto/v/69211756?t=02h31m27s for that weird newer jojo game followed by some tetris.

https://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky for various top 8s over the course of the day and we'll probably get to see who this month's dlc character for SF 5 is even though we'll be getting them in like 2 days. Man, they have a Vampire Savior tournament and I haven't played that game in over a decade.

Stage 1 music from the Game Boy shooter Solar Striker.  This one's been stuck with me for decades.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmljujpHusY&index=2&list=PLozlgT58fQtdrFcA0o5wfUw_Euc5JyAZT

Hell of a first post. Very nice read. Welcome!

I'm not an expert on the Atelier series, I first played Marie in the 90s and then played a handful from each generation. Iris is probably the one I've played the most in earnest, but I've sunk a good few hours into Totori and Ayesha as well. The series has come a long way over the past two decades, and I wonder if what you're concerned about is just... well, progress? I'm sure the PS2 and PS3 titles were met with similar concerns as both took the series in a whole new direction. Going back to Marie, or even Annie, is a bit of a clunky experience now, but they do have their charm. It's just one of those thangs, time marches on and demographics change.

Personally I'm interested in seeing the changes Gust makes with each iteration, I think I'd probably stop checking in on the series if they just put out the same thing each time.

If you're interested in seeing what Atelier Sophie has to offer, Derek and Mike will be streaming it Sunday June 5th at 12pm EST on our Twitch channel.

Oh I've been playing Blizzard games long enough to know that you stand absolutely no chance in those games if you just stroll in, you are most definitely going to be eviscerated by someone because there in every Blizzard game.

And yet even then I'd still probably have a blast playing it, looks about as thoroughly Blizzard as Blizzard goes.

Uh, about Hulu...

I'm in Europe, so CR is pretty much the only reliable streaming service when it comes to anime. Viewster has an okay selection but next to no aps.

I would say that Marty is correct in that they fall in the adventure/point-and-click genre.  There is a significant amount of VN characteristics, but there is more player interaction than a typical VN.  That being said, I thought AA5 tried really hard to get back to form after Apollo Justice, but as stated earlier, fell flat due to the poor ending (though definitely not ME3 horrible).  I hope that with the return of some classic characters (Maya, especially!!!!!), they can regain some of that old Ace Attorney spirit! 

Still confused aobut Capcom's business decisions though....they bring over AA: Investigations 1 but not the 2nd, then they bring over Ace Attorney 5 on digital download only.  Then they refuse to bring over The Great Ace Attorney, yet immediately announce Ace Attorney 6.  I am baffled by those particular decisions as they all did really well here in the states, to my knowledge.  Why choose some titles over others?

Because $$$$$$.
