Nina 1, 2 and 4 are good. I'm not a fan of the others.


Katt is a lie.
A sweet lie that I wish I never learned it was a lie.

Shining Force 3 - Spent like an hour playing some mission and then I realized I'd already done said mission on another save file. WHOOPS. Oh well, everyone's better leveled on the more recent save file. But still. I am dum.

-- edit --

Nanatsu Kaze - Got stuck figuring out where the other wind stone was and then I realized the answer was, uh, super obvious and I'm just not very bright. This led to an encounter with a giant, humanoid, terrifying baby made of boulders bound together with large pieces of wire, and also getting the implication that said stone baby, as it aged, would erode down into a single, immobile rock with limited sensory input but would still be totally sapient THIS GAME IS WEIRD. THIS GAME IS WEIRD A LOT.

DDP DFK - Did training on level 3. I feel like I can sort of adequately use Ship B with Power Type in Boost mode since it gets hypers fast and you can use those to kill bullets. The bullet patterns in this compared to Mushihimesame or even Espgaluda 2 are just fffffffffffffff.

For the record, I don't care how wonky it was/is, BoF2 rocked.

BoF2 was like a gateway drug of JRPG's for me. Not the best, nor my favorite per se, but it crudely introduced (to me specifically) some awesome concepts. The game wasn't groundbreaking but it paved the way for me personally discovering a lot of what I loved. Town building, character transformations, real time overworld character abilities, unforgiving difficulty, hidden/optional character and its still the only game with STEN!!!!! LoL

I still prefer the super sexy Nina of BoF2.

That is my vote for my fav Nina as well, followed closed by Nina from IV. Child Nina in 3 was my least favorite.

^Yeah that. Looks like we both had something wrong.

As for the the topic at hand, ReBoot. There's a show that's now impossible to resolve in a satisfying manner (rip Tony Jay).

I'm also still waiting for the actual third season of Gargoyles (unless I'm miscounting and there was only the one season).

Speaking of Reboot, it is getting a sequel series...which is going to have scenes using CGI and scenes using real life actors.

There was a third season of Gargoyles. Unfortunately (?) it is not available on DVD and for w/e reason

The reason why there's no DVD of Gargoyles S3 is because there is no S3 of Gargoyles. Even the series creator has gone on record to state that there is no third season.

As for what's been happening with ReBoot, that's had an online comic that was pretty unsatisfactory (it started on the same note that Season 3 almost ended on, doom and gloom everywhere, with Megabyte running the show again, only this time its because Bob was too busy sitting on his hands like a Gundam style pacifist instead of being lost in space, which lasts up until Megabyte crossed some kind of arbitrary line which set Bob off like, again, a Gundam styled pacifist, though his Gundam style pacifistic Beam Spam Rampage got cut drastically short due to a shady cult popping up out of nowhere and instantly subduing all the viruses) and at least two announced attempts at making a movie follow up that I have yet to hear any follow up on. So yeah, I'm not expecting much.

Speaking of 90s cartoons that were canned, I was a big fan of the Ocean Production Mega Man series. For some reason it was on Sunday morning really early where I lived, so I had to wake up early on Sundays too! The animation was a healthy mix of anime and American styles, and I think it prepared me for the anime revolution that came a few years later. One of the reasons I stuck with DBZ when I first started watching it was because the VA of Goku was the same VA from this Mega Man series. The only problem that I have with this series looking back on it now is that it tried to empower Roll to be a more active participant in the action (which is good!), but they did so by having her only real weapon being a vacuum cleaner attached to her arm (which is bad!).

It had pretty killer Mega Man sounding music too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ufVQIUEiYc

I was thinking about adding the Ruby Spears Mega Man series to my list, but it ended on a well enough note with Mega X (though one more season would've meant having just that much more comedy gold come from this goofy trainwreck).

I guess I'll add some of the various Street Fighter 2 series, specifically the series that gave us this.

I agree completely, Hathen. I'd like to actually be able to play Mighty No. 9 before I support a new title from Inafune and Comcept. Also, since Mighty No. 9 was completely funded by the generosity of fans, they should wait and use the profit they make to fund the studio's next game. Or at the very least, try to fund it themselves.

So I slowed down and read the description a little closer, it seems like all the people reporting about this are leaving out something really important.

This thing they're kickstarting is in fact, a prologue game of some kind, and only a snippet of what the "full game" would be (they said it would be around 8 hours long). I'm guessing it's a lot like what MGS Ground Zeroes was. Apparently they're saying the full game would cost way too much to ask Kickstarter- when you think about it that's not really a surprise, they want to make an open world game and that can cost tens of millions in a first world country like Japan. Makes the $800k they're asking for make a whole lot more sense because there's no way you'd be making an open world game on that budget.

From the page:

This story has always been planned as a key jumping-on point for the universe, and we hope to use this small, but dense taste of the RED ASH universe as a foundation on which to build future content. Whether it's through additional funding, revenue from "The KalKanon Incident" sales, or teaming up with a publisher, this is a story we are determined to tell, and we want all of our backers to be on the ground floor for the creation of this new game universe.

It seems like it's basically them asking the fans to fund a pitch/proposal sort of thing. When put this way it does seem like an appropriate use of Kickstarter.

Unfortunately they really picked the worst combination of factors. People are going "didn't we already give you guys money" after MN09, June/July is like the worst time to launch a kickstarter, and on top of that they're making this right after people have already put their money into Yooka Laylee, Bloodstained and Shenmue. There's still plenty of time so I'll put some thought into whether or not I'll kickstart this one, I do hope they can make their initial goal at least.

@Jimmy I vaguely recall the Mega Man cartoon, and that opening is definitely one of the things I remember most.

The worst part is I was a big fan of the Archie Sonic comic for a while, yet still I'll never get to see Sonic's story end, nor do I even care to see it in its current form anymore...

Also I know you're totally talking about Sonic X don't you dare bring that up DAMN YOU!!!!

Fortunately for me, Sonic X and Sonic Xtreme are two different things.

The latter, Xtreme, was out in the late 90s, featured SatAM Sonic getting schooled from overrelying on his new found super speed, then getting pointed to the rest of his Dragon Quest 2 party siblings, while having to start a new quest to save their space queen mother, using the power of metal to rawk out in a way that somehow didn't add up to an experience that was so bad that it looped back to badical, it was just mediocre since it went nowhere fast and got canned after like 5-10 episodes (and was watched by like only 10 people, myself included).

Oh, you mean Sonic Underground? Yeah, I never actually watched that, but I heard it was weird.

...no wait, I think I did see an episode of that when I was little. It was really confusing, especially since I didn't realize that SatAM, Advetures of Sonic The Hedgehog, and Sonic Underground were all different shows...

Playing Breath of Fire IV while I wait for my friend to loan me his DS so I can (re)play (for the first time) 999.

I'd forgotten how wonderful this game is.  IV's Nina might have the most adorable avatar I've ever seen

I defy anyone to look at that and not let an audible "dawwwww" slip out.  And I say this as someone who loathes cutesy over the top anime style nonsense.

I still prefer the super sexy Nina of BoF2.

Either I'm terrible at my job or I should figure out some way to make money from this. Like, is there any game you want? I can write an article about how it's not gonna happen and then it's totally gonna happen.

'Nintendo Will Never Make Another "Open World" Mario Game'


'Metroid Federation Force "Totally Not a Joke," says Iwata"

Tomara, may I put in an article request for an HD remaster of Panzer Dragoon Saga being nothing but a pipe dream?  That it will forever be the greatest RPG you never played?  Please and thank you.
