Gundam Musou

So we have...Gundam Musou.
Or Gundam Warriors.
Or whatever they'll call it.
The commercial announcer sounds like a used car salesman.

Anyway, I never really hated the Musou style games, but it's for PS3, so automatic "Won't get" on my list.

I was looking for the first song in this video forever, it's catchy as hell, my initial sources failed me so I started transliterating lyrics myself and googling them in Japanese.
Unfortunately, my transliteration needs a lot of work.
I transliterated wo as mo, suru as sugu, and riyuu and jiyuu.
I fail completely.
Good thing pbox has Japanese friends...
Ironically, the song turned out to be sung by a Korean group called Jewelry.

Plague is the new irradiate.

Man, just man.
Freaking amazing.
Seriously the zerg was using defilers like terran use vessels, absolutely ludicrious.

Classical Music Drama

Joyce Hatto

It seems like a virtuoso pianist with a cult following stole all her recordings from other artists, or time stretched and altered slightly.

It's nice stuff, what she stole, but it took them a while to figure out (she died of cancer recently)

Loopy doo.

I don't know if I can take Arcana Heart seriously anymore. :V

Those silly 2chan vippers have created their own mod of Super Mario World.
At first I was playing "spot the 2chan meme" but after a while it became "wow this hack is pretty freaking hardcore."

Dragon Shadow Spell

I wonder how RPGamer missed this.
I forget how I heard of it first, Insert Credit or EChang.
Either way, it looks really nifty.
Seems like if you beat the game once on replay a shop opens where you can buy the ability for a lot of the named enemies you fought and minor characters to start joining you on second play.
When I say a lot I mean they're like talking like 50%+ of the cast.
Lots of nice character designs and such.
Anyway, I've already got a liking for:

Now THERE'S a mage.

Also, the main character's older sister is like Ignis, cept redrawn into a cute tactics rpg style.
Still very hot.

Ah heck a lot of the females are cute:

Rollerblade weapons are always cool (Lilica!)

*Cough* someone for Helma to pick on mercilessly


Ar Tonelico

So I caved and bought it.
Even though I had just finished dling the torrent.
Eh whatever.
It's pretty simple and what not, this is one of those rare instances where the charm in the setting/universe really speaks to me a lot more than the gameplay.

Also lol this is a guy.
And he's supposedly the main character's best friend.
Doesn't he look so obviously evil?

Instant Ramen Shenanigans

Wait he was Taiwanese?
How many wives again?
Seems like there was a lot more to Momofuku Ando, or should I say Wu Bai Fu (Inventor of the instant ramen) than first appears...

Robot Chicken would probably be one of the one and a half reasons to get cable.

Youtube keeps annoying me...

It seems that a whole shitload of my videos with JP text have lost their encoding or hell I don't know what's exactly wrong.
I just know the JP text is not displaying in any of the browser encoding options I choose and that I'll probably have to retag them all.
I don't even know what those jokers keep doing with JP text support but it's obviously crap.

Poughkeepsie mentioned alert!

Poughkeepsie watch
Ho ho, Poughkeepsie being mentioned in mainstream news!
In relation to...a professional gaming article from Time Magazine.
"The uniqueness of the MLG is that you can start as just four guys from Poughkeepsie and end as a top-five team..."

Hey hey now, we're not exactly the backwater of gaming here!

I'm tired of all this.
Truly tired.
For whatever it's worth, I'm sorry.
I'm sorry this information has been used against you in hurtful ways.
I'm sorry that the one person from #SM I told this spread it.
And yet I get the funny feeling you don't even read this blog.
In fact I have a funny feeling this won't even reach the parties it's intended for.

But in the end it's not really his fault, as I wrote it all down here first; clever google hides and all, it would have come to light eventually.
I do not apologize for writing my feelings down in here.
That is what this blog is for, even though it deviated away from it for a long time.
I do not sanitize here, otherwise I would have no where else.

I'm sorry.
If you request though that the entries be removed, I will remove them.
It has to be you though, I can't really trust second hand dialogue anymore.
