    An anime recommendation thread for someone who has not watched anime in 4 years.....

    There are some really good suggestiions, particularly the Monster, Madoka, Fate/Zero, and P4, Gurren Lagaan are very good. In fact, Monster is my favourite anime, Madoka being number 2. SnK definitely is overrated in the sense that it has a lot of pacing issues and really hasn't yet dive into...

    Jimquisition: Sexual Failing

    No. Traditionally eroge has always been a strong platform for romance when you're looking for story. Yume Miru Kusuri is still amongst my favourite eroge of all time, even though the stuff by Key are also very good. It's the reason why I followed Leigh Alexander back then as well, because her...

    Jimquisition: To Play The Villain

    There's something about Captain Walker that makes it so compelling, I agree. Actually, I'd argue that this is also the case in Dark Souls, but in a much more morally ambiguous manner. You are, for the most part, killing enemies for your own gain in the journey. What's so difficult, at least...

    Catherine Box Art: It's All About the T&A

    In general, I'm pretty sure Atlus does have the balls to localize to NA, but it may or may not make it due to other factors. Then again, Persona 3's "kids shooting themselves in the head" came out fine...

    LoadingReadyRun: It's Magic

    It's not strange. I was like that for a while myself. The aspect of magic I enjoyed most was building decks anyway. Interestingly enough, I got my gf to play casually, so at least my crappier decks get some action now. lol

    Anonymous Attacks US Government

    Hmmm...don't think they have the longevity to actually do things, but I doubt threatening the copyright bureau would get them anywhere.

    Zero Punctuation: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

    I guess loosely based is taking the names of characters and take like 1 trait and it would be "loosely based"...

    Warning: Don't Play Dance Central Naked

    Was there anything in the user agreement stating that Dance Central does stuff like this? Otherwise it's got some privacy issues...

    Escapist News Network: Rejeweled

    Sweet sweet reprints. Only 70 dollars for the entire collection of 1 game! Wow! I have to wonder Lunar the most reprinted Japanese game in existence? (IIRC at least 3-4 reiterations of the exact same game with graphical updates happened)

    Escapist News Network: Sony's Crazy Marketing

    I'm going to make a comment here: at least Nintendo offers a solution. Nippon Ichi's solution to the gamebreaking glitch in Ar Tonelico 2? Grind more so you'll finish the boss fight before the boss starts using the game-breaking glitch. Smooth.

    Poll: Rap, Because its about gangsters and hoes.

    There are still some "conscience" rappers around that actually contribute something useful. Also, good rap does have a lot of musical qualities to it, such as the use of rhythm and rhyme. The only thing good rap generally lacks is the sense of non-monotonistic melody, and even then it is only...

    Spain Won. Goddamn Octopus Right Again

    oic. yeah I agree with some of the yellows, but about half the yellows shouldn't have been called though. Makes sense, if at least he's consistent with everything else he does.
