I like to go fast.

Excellent post. I’ve already seen Baccano, but your writeup about damn near inspired me to go watch it again.
Right now it’s XCOM, but there are a handful of games I’ll be playing in the next couple weeks that I expect will be serious contenders, so I’ll withhold final judgment.
Considering you usually need extra equipment and software to stream console games, having that ability built directly into the system and easily accessible seems like more than just a novelty, and hardly a ‘questionable feature.’
I don’t consider it to be just fanservice, and I don’t feel an infographic is necessary to explain that.
It’s crunch time for me with school right now, so I don’t have time for anything too story driven. I just watched a bit of Minami-ke here and there.
Jesus. TWD, Wolf Among Us, Borderlands, and now Game of Thrones? I hope TellTale’s not biting off more than they can chew, for their sake.
These designs remind me of Maken-Ki. Especially the girl on the left.
Great! Glad you enjoyed it.
I’m in the camp that doesn’t really see Gal Godot as a good choice for Wondy. It has nothing to do with her acting ability, I just really don’t think she has the build or figure for the role.
Finished the first half of Vandread. It has a strong start but towards the middle it starts to get boring. It picks up significantly towards the end and going into Second Stage, though. If Second Stage can maintain this momentum, it should turn out to be a great show overall.
To be fair, it was one of the best punches I’ve seen in the medium.
But Cobalt likes Kokonoe, and she ain’t exactly packing.
I know what you mean. But the way I see it, if you’re gonna dabble in that genre, you might as well stick with the best.
Same, though I haven’t seen Nyaruko. I liked Hayate, but I don’t think it’s a show that’s enjoyable enough to merit watching the 100 or so episodes they’ve made of it.
So far I’ve liked Binbougami a lot for parody humor.
As long as it ends. I tend to consider the ride more important than the destination with these things.
Yeah, I’ve only read the first several chapters, so I guess I’ll see how it goes. It usually takes a few dozen chapters before I know whether I’m in it for the long haul or not.
I chose it because it actually ended, which is something I can respect in a shounen series.
So on a whim I decided to start reading Medaka Box. My tolerance for shounen has historically been hit or miss, but so far I like it. What’s most surprising is that so far I actually really like Medaka herself and find her to be the most interesting character. It’s uncommon for this to be the case with shounen, where the supporting cast is typically much more compelling than the main character (Naruto, Ichigo, Natsu, etc.). This was compounded by the fact that on paper she just sounds like a boring character; Sexy, big chest, amazing at [almost] everything she does. But the fact that the author plays this completely straight (almost every other character sees her the same way you might after reading a brief description of her) while finding ways here and there to peel away at that perception makes it fun to read. I won’t go so far as to call it a deconstruction of the ‘perfect girl’ character archetype, but so far it seems to be intelligently handled.
I assume he’s talking about Arise.
It’s just entertaining.
I actually agree with your stance in the argument, I just think the examples you used are very poor.
Those are all games that are ‘about to come out’?
Not a single thing sticks out to me. I guess Nisekoi could be alright.
There’s a bunch of games on my wishlist, but Company of Heroes 2 and Scribblenauts Unmasked are the only games I’m actively interested in on Steam for the time being.
Sweet angst, though.
The show. I’m not a fan of the movie.
So it’s Nanoha?
I need more top quality
