  1. Do the Batman: Arkham games count? Because I thought those were fantastic. I have never before really felt like the Batman.
  2. I got: -a couple of date nights (gift cards for nice restaurants). -a new belt and tie. -Lots of homemade sweets shipped from my mom. -A nice pullover. and my personal favorite: -a nice new pocket watch from the wifee. It's been a good Christmas.
  3. I really just want stuff to be tradable between the games instead of bottom up. Here's hoping.
  4. My biggest beef with the trailer for the game (haven't played the game) is that the mother is obviously suffering from severe mental problems, probably schizophrenia with auditory hallucinations. I get that the game is loosely inspired by a story from the bible, but the implication that a perfectly healthy (if isolated) person who watches too much of one type of programming will make that person do things that are ethically, morally, and legally wrong is annoying. That same implication always gets gamers like us up in arms whenever people decide to point the finger at our chosen medium. That said, if the content for the game itself is aimed at a much older audience, it seems like Nintendo is follow their set general patterns by not releasing this. Better explanations would have been nice, though.
  5. It's obvious that your character will be framed for a crime he didn't do, be stripped of all his belongings (and pokemon), and sent to a massive, high security prison where he'll be forced to work his way up the ranks in illegal underground pokemon tournaments. ...Or maybe not.
  6. Moe blob is a genre I hate to love. If this is your thing, I can comfortably recommend Denpa Onna, Not much in the way of story or plot, but a weird, unique, and adorable cast makes it great fun. I think the BR comes out beginning of next month.
  7. I think 5 cms/second was probably a really good movie, but it just...it made me feel really bad. I was in kind of a weird funk the whole next day after I watched it. I don't really know a better way to describe it. The Placed Promised in our Early Days was, however, really enjoyable for me. (same director).
  8. Even if you don't care for Clannad, you need to watch it just to gain access to After Story. Seriously, it is exactly what the hype says it is.
  9. Merry Christmas OCR! Got a new wallet and some gloves (very useful given I moved from Texas to AK a few months ago). No family this year, but I've made a ton of amazing friends that love hanging out.
  10. Saved for possible future reference. It would be a shame (mild, mellow way of putting it) to see my favorite lurking area disappear.
  11. I regret not being able to participate in this for various reasons. Have fun!
  12. Guilty. Also, I'm a figdeter (meaning, I am often moving my hand(s) or one of my feet in constant, small movements) which combined with the above means I'm pretty much never not moving.
  13. Looks like Jerry had some nice things to say on his update (23 Nov). Nice to see Extra Credits is so welcome in their new home.
  14. The show covers the first part of the manga (from what I hear; haven't read it, don't intend to). If they make a season 2, I'd really hope they decide to do their own thing rather than follow the manga. I heard the ending to the manga was pretty weird/creepy, spoiled it, and agree.
  15. Monster was a very fun ride. Enjoyed the whole thing, especially how grounded the series felt (minus the whole overarching conspiricy stuff).
  16. If you enjoyed Eva, check out RahXephon. Pretty interesting, its aged pretty well, and the dub doesn't suck. For something completely different, I loved Usagi Drop. Definately not for everyone, but if you have a single slice-of-life bone in your body and want a mature show that doesn't pander to a pubescent male audience, I can't recommend it enough.
  17. I'm remembering the giant hall with the rift in it, hiding behind a pillar and staring into the darkness. There's a faint shuffling and groaning, the music starts, and it just keeps getting louder, but as much as I strain, I can't see this things form in the distance. At the point where I think it must be on top of me because it's so loud, it dawns on me to turn around. Yep. I jumped, cursed at length and tried sprinting away. Those suckers are FAST! On-topic, I really enjoyed the story for Bastion. I think the choice NEAR the end of the game can be pretty moving.
  18. This made me chuckle. Verbally.
  19. From what I understand, if this games characters work the same way as in GW1, having a "main" is kind of a misnomer, due to ease of leveling/excellent new-build inspiring pvp. Regardless, count me in if there's an OCR group.
  20. My brother being a HUGE fan of the first one and continually talking up this one (also, Char Engineers), has gotten me reeeeally wanting a release date announcement.
  21. If you've already put some time into it, you really ought to. The story, as spread out as it was, is what kept me playing. I don't want to spoil anything, but the ending may have been the most moving part of the whole series for me.
  22. So Re: Coded supposedly takes place immediately before KH 3DS? I'm a long time fan of the series and either had fun with or seriously enjoyed the crap out of every title that's come out so far, but I've heard some disappointing things about Re: Coded. Is it worth picking up/playing?
  23. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I've been dinking around in FoMT and wondering if I should look into one of the newer installments.
  24. I've got one, too. Just now flipped mine open and wiped a fingerprint with my shirt, came right off. I buy the protectors so I can do things like wipe the screen with my shirt without worrying about scratches, so I don't know if that helps you. Is it the one that covers the entire top panel (like, not just the screen, but edge-to-edge)?
