  1. Picked up White a few days ago. Really loving it so far. This feels like the proper sequel the Pokemon series has needed since Red and Blue came out. Everything is so well thought-out, and I'm thrilled that the developers addressed some of my biggest headaches. I haven't had too much time with it yet, but that will probably change next week while I'm on a road trip. [center][img]http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/6f/498MS.png[/img] [b]Pignite[/b] is my tank so far. Tepig is adorable, so it was an easy choice for my starter. Plus, I picked Charmander first in Red, so

    [quote name='Dagger' timestamp='1299890752' post='705624'] I feel so fortunate to be in Kumamoto, which has been relatively unaffected by the disaster. The scale of this thing is absolutely staggering. [/quote] Glad to hear you're doing okay, Dagger. Watching the news coverage of this event is just heart-breaking. - Shy
  3. [quote name='Charles' timestamp='1299889087' post='705623'] This game just works. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 was good, dumb fun. However, I found myself using only a very small segment of the roster. There were just too many throwaway characters (Boneclaw Wolverine, for example), or lame fluff fighters. While I am no fighting game aficionado, I appreciate how the developers have at least provided [i]some[/i] parity in their modernized attempt. I also appreciate the attempt made to include relevant/interesting backdrops to fight in front of. The levels in MvC2 were f

    [quote name='Japan' timestamp='1299834893' post='705596'] Isn't there a warning for tsunami for California now?[/quote] Yeah, but we won't know for several hours whether or not coastal communities on the U.S./South American west coast will need to be evacuated or not. However, any potential damage will be relatively minor compared to what is happening around Asia right now. Australia is also under a tsunami warning, and they'll see the waves long before we do. Hawaii is also under a major tsunami warning. Beachside communities are moving as far as a hal

  6. Eh, close enough! Expect this up in a few weeks. We've got some serious work to do! Thanks for your participation, guys. - Shy
  7. Hey guys! I'm super busy this week with work, so I'll leave this open until the weekend. Thanks to everyone who posted so far; I'm definitely hoping we can rustle up some more activity before this thread is officially closed. - Shy
  8. I like this. Now what? - Shy
  9. New Year, new Nifty Fifty. Make it happen!

  10. [center][size=6]Otaku[b]Boards[/b] Nifty Fifty[/size] [i]2010 Nominations[/i][/center] Welcome to the OtakuBoards Nifty Fifty of 2009! In this thread we will continue our grand tradition of awarding various aspects and members of our totally nifty community. Those of you new to the idea may have some questions... [size=4][b]What is it again?[/b][/size] To put it simply, itâ??s a list of the fifty members, threads, or things that have made theO's community great (â??niftyâ??) in the past year (that includes theOtaku and OB). You, the members, are going to nominate your favorites
  11. I'd rather not worry about trying to shoehorn any of the existing characters into our new story. Let's just use fresh faces entirely, save for Fuyutsuki, who was awesome. The voting idea sounds cool, too. The high school dynamics were some of my least favorite parts of Eva, though. I'd much rather skip that stuff. - Shy
  12. [quote name='Kei' timestamp='1293145175' post='703199'] [font="Tahoma"][color="#000080"](An idea that just occurred to me, though, is what if there were a sort of Angel "gene" that lies dormant in people that activates under certain conditions? If anyone could technically turn into an Angel, and player characters could build relationship with them--or a player character turns into an Angel themselves--that could provide an interesting turn.) [/color][/font] [/quote]I like this. I feel like the Angels should be incredibly varied in h
  13. If there's a story to tell, then of course I'm in. I tried to get an Eva RPG going.... 8 years ago(!), but it never took off. Hopefully I can come up with a better approach to the material. The logistics of NERV fascinate me to no end. My favorite episode of the entire series is probably when Ritsuko has to deal with all of her mother issues while doing battle with one of the Angels. It's the unique nature of that Angel in particular which interests me in regards to an RPG. What if some of the Angels were more like plagues and curses rather than simply giant monsters attacki
  14. Count me in for something or whatever. - Shy
  15. [quote name='Sangome' timestamp='1293045266' post='703136'] [color="#9932CC"][font="Microsoft Sans Serif"]I would definitely recommend HeartGold and SoulSilver, whether you've played the originals or not. Of course, you'd probably derive more enjoyment if you've played GSC [since HG/SS goes all out for the fans], but I have friends who barely played GSC [or not played it at all] and still enjoyed it. They're easily the best Pokemon games from this past gen.[/font][/color] [/quote] I played Gold and Silver way back in the day, but t
  16. So I got a Nintendo DS XL today and I'm totally excited for it. However, I'm wondering which games I should pick up for it? Also: Would anyone recommend getting the new Pokemon Silver and Gold? - Shy
  17. just got a Nintendo DS XL! What games should I be playing on this?

    1. Shinmaru


      You like puzzles? The Professor Layton games are quite awesome. I also love the Ace Attorney games: Really funny, good stories and lots of fun.

    2. Sangome


      Shin and Ace beat me to my other suggestions, so I'll just third the Ace Attorney and Professor Layton recommendations. xD

    3. James


      Super Princess Peach. No, seriously.

  18. This was probably my favorite podcast yet. Girls are gross, but Beth and Kei made for an entertaining show. Looking forward to having more guests in the future! Shinmaroo's 45 minute long anime review was pretty boss as well. - Shy
  19. I've been assured that Nathan is going to post, and soon. He has yet to let me down in this regard, unlike others who disappear randomly. Hm. If we can't get some momentum on this thing soon we'll figure out a quick solution. The only thing I can suggest for now is bugging the remaining players to post and use all of their cards. - Shy

  21. I don't know what I'm listening to. Why am I crying? What is going on!? How can I be a part of this? - Shy
  22. [quote name='Gavin' date='28 October 2010 - 03:09 AM' timestamp='1288260540' post='701356'] [font="Tahoma"][size="2"]I'll get something up this weekend featuring Leonard and The Butler, midterms this week and last week so I've not had a whole pile of time to write.[/size][/font] [/quote] Well? Anyone? - Shy
  23. [quote name='Lilt' date='02 November 2010 - 09:28 AM' timestamp='1288715299' post='701474'[b]]There's a lot you can do with this idea, Shy. So I can't wait until it becomes an actual RP. If you need any help with this, let me know. [/b][/quote] Um. Okay. I'm in. Let me know what you need. - Shy
  24. So who will be posting next? Anyone? - Shy
  25. [quote name='CaNz' date='19 October 2010 - 02:13 PM' timestamp='1287522813' post='701164'] oh I did that!.... but then again i only had two cards... it woulda been hard for people like Nathan to do that (especially with the lifecard and haste card! to go with his other two!) man... i am glad this is part of the thread description! <3whine! [/quote] True, but all of your characters are dead. It would have been tricky, but you never know. - Shy
