  1. I caught up to the most current episode in Hajime no Ippo: Rising! after taking about a month to watch all of Hajime no Ippo and Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger from the beginning. I really enjoy the show. As for FMA:B I just though it was a little to curt of an ending. Maybe I'm too caught up in philosophical ramblings and whatnot, but I just didn't think there was an exciting conclusion to match the strength of the rest of the show.
  2. Sorry, I didn't think much of the ending of FMA: Brotherhood. The rest of the show is incredible though. I recently watched all of Hajime no Ippo and caught up to where they are at on the newest season. I love it. My backlog of anime is huge. Dying to watch Kill la Kill, Coppelion, Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, Gailei Donna, and after reading up on Nagi no Asukara I want to start that one up too. And despite the puke-inducing 3D of Arpeggio of Blue Steel, I want to watch Battleship the Anime more than I can say. However my upcoming PCAT and my far-too-frequent Physical and Inorganic Chemistry exams have been hindering me to no end. At this point it's just a wishlist. And for what it's worth Halcyon, I always enjoyed reading your reviews!
  3. I'm here to second the claim that MMZ/X are incredible games. I also prefer the first one, but they are both super solid games, and I have always been pretty bummed that they pretty much stopped making them. And after I worked so hard to beat it on expert and get that secret ending scene D:
  4. Wow, somebody actually ponied up the 10k for a dinner with Keiji. Makes me wish I could afford a bit more than 20$. Here's hoping this gets all the scratch it needs and more!
  5. Oh shit, I LOVE Mercenary! The last album of theirs that I heard was Architect of Lies though, and I love the hell out of that album. Will definitely have to pick this up. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
  6. I wasn't thinking they were lying about the disc, it just seems strange to me that they are selling a new game as used. Normally this wouldn't be strange to me, but since used game sales are much more profitable for them, it just seemed very weird to me. However, like I said earlier it could just be me over thinking it. Also, Brush says it happens so maybe my friend really did just get lucky by getting a disc someone decided not to play after buying it.
  7. Okay, here is something that has been sort of bothering me. Yesterday I went to Gamestop with my friend and he picked out a couple of used games to buy, one being the Witcher 2 for Xbox. While he was waiting in line another friend of mine came in who I went to talk to while my other friend was checking out. When my friend was done we left Gamestop and he proceeded to tell me how he really "lucky" because he had got a brand new disc for the Witcher 2. The lady working there told him that apparently someone had bought the Witcher, opened the case, and returned it about an hour later without even playing the game, so despite being sold as "used" it was actually brand new. Maybe I'm over thinking it, but this story sounds dodgy as shit to me. It sounds way too convenient for Gamestop that something like this happened and I just can't bring myself to believe that someone bought the game to open it and return it. So there is my 2 cents
  8. This is actually a really cool idea, though I don't think they would offer such a high discount on the games. But even if it was 50% and upward I would buy several of the old games I owned. I'm a hoarder as well - been gaming since the days of Super Nintendo and I have never intentionally thrown away a case (family not included) or resold a single game, so I would be one happy camper!
  9. F*CKIN Phoenix Wright x Professor Layton! I couldn't be happier! Owning a 3DS is so good right now!
  10. Yeah, I don't really care too much about the story mode for SSB. I only ever really play through it to unlock characters. I just want to hear this music again - If this is back in there, you can do whatever you want Nintendo!
  11. SO! I got to see Pacific Rim tonight for some reason! I thought it came out on the 12th, but if they really wanna show it on the 11th.... Anyway, I thought it was pretty great. I dunno if it's the fuel of human dreams or whatever Kojima was saying, but it was definitely a cool movie, even though I thought the ending was a little bit weak. It's a fantastic slugfest of monsters and robots though, and did we really need anything else? That, and I got that sweet poster by the MGS artist as well! XD
  12. Yeah, I'm excited to try out Valkyria Chronicles myself. I bought it about a year ago and brought it over to my parents house and I lost it. I did my best doing that thing where you don't want to buy another because you know it will show up, but I decided I may as well support a game that's (supposedly) really cool, so after a year I have purchased it again. As you may be able to imagine, I refuse to take it over to my parents house....
  13. nvmd i got one myself. I got extra pipes, hidden blocks and virtual boys though for anyone who will take em...
  14. I'd like that Toad hat, but I don't really have anything to offer you in return... Unless you want an S.S. Dolphin or something?
  15. What?! But... How!? Tangy's in MY town! What black magic is this?! She even said Marshal and I were her best friends. Is my Animal Crossing village built on a lie?
  16. I just got the Virtual Boy today myself. In addition I have the Triforce, Peach's Parasol, and Olimar's Ship (a tiny model anyway). I can't help but think how sad and pathetic I am though. I looked everywhere for that damn K.K. last night, but I couldn't find the little bugger! How do you screw up things in Animal Crossing!?
  17. While that's true, it's still just the model of an already existing character. I personally get really psyched to see movesets that are specific to the character including cool things from their own games. However, if you don't get bothered by that at all then I guess you are the winner here, because you won't ever not see your character in there =) I just realized who I would absolutely love to see representing the Advance Wars franchise: Brenner from Days of Ruin. I think he would be badass, though I don't think they would include him. If anyone they would probably do someone from the original like Andy or Max.
  18. Looks like we've got a great mix of fruit here! I've a question though - Has anyone run across a gyroid yet? I'm afraid that one of my favorite mascots may have been axed from the game...
  19. That's very true. I only got to watch the stream, but Grand Finals at Apex 2013 for Brawl were absolutely amazing! It's always nice to see an underdog with an underutilized character upset the (seemingly) cocky champ with his top tier character pick.
  20. This game is great. I'm getting way into it just like every other AC I've played! Anyway, I'm Philip from Balamb, and my fruit is Peaches!
  21. Aw dammit! Well, it seems like a good business decision for MS nonetheless.
  22. This has got to be one of the greatest things I've ever seen. Sony is really enjoying their glorious day of victory, aren't they?
  23. Oh, I realize that SSB is wildly competitive in it's own regard, but all I was saying is that in the FGC it tends to get trashed on a lot essentially because of its departure from normal fighting game mechanics, though imo if it's fun, who gives a damn? Melee was significantly better competitive-wise though, and while SSBM is going to be at EVO this year, it was because of the fundraising support they gather. It's definitely not a regular there. But this is beside the point. The point is that SSB is fun as hell, and while it's not necessarily played at a bunch of major tourneys, its still probably the funnest party game around. I would be SO happy to see some Advance Wars characters show up. I've been dying for a new game, though I personally (please don't kill me) prefer the reboot to the original. Also, Isaac (or anyone really) from Golden Sun is an incredible idea, Little Mac, someone from the Fire Emblem franchise that isn't sword based/main character like Tharja (though if they wanted to put Lyndis in, I would take that over anyone else! Also, someone mentioned The Tactician? That would probably be a really cool character). I don't think that they are going to include very many 3rd party characters. When watching the Megaman gameplay video, he said that he wasn't just going to let any old 3rd party character in, or something to that effect. I won't get my hopes up to see too many, but they may have a couple staples. Simon Belmont sounds cool...
  24. I'm very excited for this. I'm a pretty big fighting game enthusiast, and in the FGC (fighting game community) SSB has always been a bit of a joke because of it's uncompetitive nature. While I do tend to really try more in competitive games, I've always thought SSB was a hell of a lot of fun, and I think this iteration looks just the same. I'm also very excited for these new character announcements. It looks like they are really going with some cool ideas, and I really hope they dig into the huge cast of Nintendo greats that they've got stored away, and get rid of some of those clone characters (gtfo Falco and Wolf). If they have a 40 character cast of completely unique characters, I will blow unfathomable amounts of time into this game. I spent so much time playing the older iterations already that I know this new one would have absolutely endless replay value.
