  1. Me too, I might not be able to donate, but I'll be more than happy to spread the word.
  2. This just feels so unreal to me. This is the first time I've had to cope and grieve over the loss of a friend, both online and off, and I've basically just been going through this day in a haze. I've just dissociated from it all. I remember reading about his initial diagnosis and everything seemed like it was going to be okay, that it was easy to treat. I had worried earlier this year when he hadn't tweeted anything in about a month, but then he tweeted again and I was so relieved... and then I find this out late last night. He was such a sweet, funny dude, one of the best I'll ever know. The best Zelda fan, the best anime fan, the best computer and tech guy. His loss is felt by so many people, which just goes to show how likable and amazing he was. I'm going to miss you a lot, Des.
  3. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]What was good was really good, but overall it felt like they crammed six episodes worth of content into two.[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF][spoiler]Though I'm legitimately both impressed and horrified that they got away with [i]a murder-suicide[/i] on a Saturday morning cartoon.[/spoiler][/color][/font]
  4. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]Well, it's certainly better than the list the Guiness Book of World Records came out with some time ago...[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF]Kinda wondering how they compiled all of this, though. Like, what were the credentials and stuff? I'm interested in how they came to a lot of these.[/color][/font]

    Gaming E3 2012

    [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]I got my information on Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Sony All Stars Battle Royale, so I at least got most of what I came for. But otherwise, everything was just horribly underwhelming for the most part. It's sad when Ubisoft completely dominated the big three, and I've never even played any of their games. In fact, as the Ninty fangirl, Nintendo's conference was a [i]huge [/i]bore and letdown. They managed to make the Wii U not sound very appealing at all [and I'm speaking as someone who has been on board with it since they revealed it last year], and the Nintendo Land thing just sounds like Wii Sports/Fit/Play with Nintendo characters. And that took up like half of the conference![/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF]I also just realized that we never got the release date/localization announcement for the next Professor Layton like we have for the past two E3s, so now that worries me. Frig.[/color][/font]

    Gaming E3 2012

    [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]Paper Mario 3DS/Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright/Professor Layton: Miracle Mask release dates are my primary interests. Some more Wii U info will be nice as well. Maybe more info on Smash Bros Wii U/3DS?[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF]I'm also kinda interested in that Sony mascot fighting game that everyone keeps screaming about being a Smash Bros ripoff. I'm actually genuinely interested in who all's gonna be in it.[/color][/font]
  7. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]Yeah, I was going to mention that Nick's site has all of the episodes up so far. If you have access to On Demand, they post the most recent episodes up for free as well, but there's usually a week's delay.[/color][/font]
  8. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#9900ff]I do think this thread deserves a bump.[/color][/size][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#9900FF]So despite being one of the three people on the face of the Earth who couldn't get into its parent series to save her life [which is a cardinal sin in many circles], I decided to give this a shot anyway. Episode 1 was...really underwhelming. I then gave episode 2 a very begrudging shot, and then by episode 3 I was hooked. I'm really anticipating on seeing how this plays out. I like pretty much all of the characters, although there's some I am kind of meh on. But we're only five episodes in, and I know these people can pull it off, so I'm sure my qualms will be settled in due time. It's even enough to make me give its parent series a second shake, which I keep saying I'm going to do but I keep putting it off. Soon, though! Honest![/color][/size][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#9900FF][spoiler]Also Team Bolin for life[/spoiler][/color][/size][/font]
  9. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#9900FF]So a couple of weeks ago I joined the cool kids club and got a PS3, and I'm really enjoying having one. I got Tales of Graces as well, and a PS Store card, which I used to download Spyro: Year of the Dragon and Xenogears, and definitely more to come once I get into some funds.[/color][/size][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#9900FF][b]Tales of Graces[/b] has a really, and I mean [i]really [/i]slow start. Even after you plod through the prologue [which is apparently so unanimously reviled that the PS3 version has an option to skip it if you have enough GRADE on your New Game+], it's still really slow. It's not until about 15 or so hours in that it reaches its first point of interest -- [spoiler]Richard going absolutely batcrap insane on some poor yut, when up until that point they had given absolutely no indication whatsoever that he'd be like that. It's not bloody and gory or anything, but it makes it pretty abundantly clear that the victim would have been pretty badly cut up if it were an M-rated game.[/spoiler][/color][/size][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#9900FF]So yeah. In its favor, the battle system is more streamlined and the characters are really fun. So I'm gonna keep plugging along, at the very least.[/color][/size][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#9900FF][b]Xenogears [/b]is a game I've wanted to play for a long, long time, and am happy to finally get the chance to. I am aware of the game's problems [especially the deal with disc 2], but I have a feeling I'll enjoy it. I'm not very far, though -- I'm just now in the desert with Citan to look for parts for Weltall...and that took long enough because I got absolutely confused in that forest beforehand.[/color][/size][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#9900FF]And [b]Spyro: Year of the Dragon[/b]...it's Spyro. Good, clean, silly fun. Maybe I'll try to 100% it now that I actually own a working copy.[/color][/size][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#9900FF][b]EDIT[/b]: Oh right, I almost forgot. I think I'm developing an addiction to [b]Playstation Home[/b] for some weird reason. I like wandering around enough, but then I discovered Indie Park, which is really fun and fairly quiet [in that there's not very many n00bs there usually].[/color][/size][/font]
  10. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]Chat disconnecting you could be for a multitude of reasons. If you've not said anything in about 15 minutes or so, it automatically kicks you out. Other reasons might be the chat software being fussy, or your internet connection.[/color][/font]
  11. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF]I'm of the camp that's not fond of the new player character designs at all. [/color][/font][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]I've been a fan of/defended most player character designs -- even Lyra's -- but this I just can't really get behind.[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]They're not [i]terrible[/i], they just don't look like they belong on the PCs. They look more like they belong in one of the spinoff games, or as NPCs/rivals. It's also a huge step down because Hilda and Hilbert's designs were really awesome and they went out of their way to make the PCs older, and now we've gone back to the little kid protags. :/ The boy's design at least harkens to Hilbert's in terms of aesthetics, but the chick's clothes just don't go together at all.[/color][/font][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF] Though a large part of it probably has to be because the PCs don't look like they're designed by Sugimori -- the art style's different. You can tell in the eyes.[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF]Outside of that, though, I'm really looking forward to it with the new info coming out. The new gym leaders thing interests me the most -- Dark type gym now? Please?![/color][/font]
  12. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]For some reason I randomly dusted off [b]Super Street Fighter IV[/b] and have been going through arcade mode with each of the ladies so far; I've finished Chun Li, Juri, Cammy, and Rose's storylines. I'm not a competitive fighter so I'm pretty much just stuck doing single-player, but it's kinda fun to unwind with.[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF]I'm also considering restarting [b]Tales of Vesperia[/b] here soon since I apparently wasted a bunch of time doing a whole lot of nothing and I barely remember the plot anyway as it is [probably because said plot never really got kicked into gear when I played it last].[/color][/font]
  13. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900cc]We did try to have a dedicated anime forum again a couple of years ago; Fullmetal Alchemist had one and it garnered maybe a handful of threads when Brotherhood rolled around, but otherwise it didn't really do much but sit, and then died shortly thereafter. We also now allow duplicate threads about the same series/topic, too, I guess to garner discussion.[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900CC]I think it all really just boils down to OBs activity as a whole. It finally got a nice nudge with the new software, but the only thread that continues to routinely remain posted in is the "what are you watching/reading thread". Maybe it also has to do with so few series coming out now to generate interesting discussion? I dunno. But I think it's the former, really. I know it's a dead horse at this point, but...yeah.[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900CC]I feel like I should have more to say since that's actually my district, but it's late, so.[/color][/font]
  14. [color=#9900ff][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif]Actually, there is a good example of an American movie adaptation of an anime -- go check out the Speed Racer movie. It was panned at the time of release, but now has a cult following because it's seriously like watching an anime come to life.[/font][/color]
  15. [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][color=#9900cc]I stayed up all night watching the triumphant return of Toonami on Adult Swim and spazzing like a 10-year-old.[/color][/font] [font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][color=#9900CC]Even if it was just for one night, it was kind of the most amazing thing ever. Made it the best April Fool's in my mind.[/color][/font]
  16. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900cc]Welp, there's Ace's ego shooting up again...[/color][/font]
  17. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900cc]Uhhh, I don't know what happened, but my avatar seems to have reverted back to my old one. I had a bigger one, and it looks to me like those who had bigger ones suddenly got reverted back? Did the size allowance get changed again, or did something hiccup?[/color][/font]
  18. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900cc]I feel like I read somewhere that it was actually filmed in New York, but I'll be darned if I can't remember where I heard that.[/color][/font]
  19. [color=#9900cc][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]The new companion voiced a character in Xenoblade. That alone makes me more excited [/font][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]for the season. [And really makes me want Xenoblade even more now][/font][/color]
  20. [color=#9933cc][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]Figured I should probably kick my section of the boards up out of the past. :P The past few weeks have actually been pretty active in my own anime watching, too.[/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]I've been rewatching [b]Madoka [/b]on Crunchyroll and it's just as good as the first time I saw it. Watching it with the knowledge of what happens later actually adds a whole 'nother layer to it; the show practically changes protagonists. At least it does for me, anyway. CR's also been using the DVD/BD release, which adds a lot of little flourishes and effects to it. I quite like it.[/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]I watched the first few episodes of the infamous [b]Usagi Drop [/b]a few weeks ago, while trying all the while to beat the manga's ending out of my head. I managed to do so, but I'm honestly not in any hurry to watch the rest. It's not [i]bad [/i]by any means -- I get that it's a more gentle, low-key series -- but it's just not making me go "DAWWW UGUUUUU" like it has for so many others. Maybe it's because I have zero desire to be a parent? I dunno. But maybe I should watch a couple more episodes.[/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]Finally, I've been rewatching/finishing [b]Samurai Champloo[/b]. I saw roughly the first half years ago on Adult Swim, and never got to finish it because of a schedule change. Nevertheless, I liked what I saw then, and I'm loving what I'm seeing now. Everything about it is just perfection...agh. So so good. And addicting, too.[/font][/color]
  21. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]I heard about this the other night and it just breaks my heart. =/ I feel so bad for his family, and his girlfriend too [who was evidently on the phone with him at the time].[/color][/font][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF] My heart and prayers go out to them.[/color][/font]
  22. [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]That and I'm pretty sure it's the other way around; the Glee fanaticism predates the Friendship is Magic fanaticism by at least a couple of years. [/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF]And I can't help it, I'm helplessly addicted to buying the toys. >_> Even if the show isn't as good as it used to be now.[/color][/font]
  23. [quote name='The Professor' timestamp='1332554654' post='710924'] [font=comic sans ms,cursive]How dare you make me hide my code. Real men wear it proudly out in the open.[/font] [/quote] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]Okay Phoenix, you can flash your badge around all willy-nilly, but we prosecutors prefer to keep our badges tucked away, because we have no need to be gaudy and egotistical.[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF]Or...something.[/color][/font]
  24. [quote name='Petie' timestamp='1332498275' post='710895'] [color=#0000ff]I will look into the cause of the issue but for the time being, I switched your skin back to the default.[/color][/quote] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]I dunno if this is related to switching the skin back for him or not, but it looks like his mod title broke in the process:[/color][/font] [img]http://i43.tinypic.com/21aikgk.jpg[/img] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]As much as it amuses me, I figured I should at least point it out, especially since the others don't seem to have the issue from what I can see.[/color][/font]
  25. [quote name='The Professor' timestamp='1332413959' post='710852'] [font=comic sans ms,cursive]12345? Really? Good thing you weren't trying to get into my luggage.[/font] [/quote] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900ff]*jots this down for future reference*[/color][/font] [font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][color=#9900FF]As an aside, apparently we can Like posts now. This shall be handy.[/color][/font]
