Would have loved to try and get into the championship stuff but I'm too lazy to hop on a plane or drive for hours to one of the locations. Based on some of the drama I'm hearing about retries and such, I think sitting this year out may have done me for the best. Hopefully they make it bigger next year.

If Project Treasure operates under the same type of F2P system that Tekken Revolution does (wherein it's basically the full game and I've never had to pay a single penny for it) I'd totally be interested in giving it a look. The actual gameplay looks something like a cross between RE Mercenaries and Left 4 Dead & almost makes me wonder if it would have worked better as a standard $60 buy & play forever kind of game if character cutomisation turns out deep enough.

Am willing to give Fire Emblem If a shot IF we get the version with all 3 scenarios in it. Splitting the game up is pretty ridiculous. Awakening left a VERY bad taste in my mouth with all of the shoddy DLC and just the overall tone of a lot of the characters' personalities.

The GG XRD stuff is worrying me a little bit as a lot of the new characters' (not-returning) designs aren't really resonating with me. Is interesting to see Johnny on there though. I remember back when I was learning the game and thought Johnny was something of a joke, I played someone using him in a competitive setting at a convention and got completely ripped apart. Took the game as a whole a lot more seriously after that.

I can't put my finger on it, but something about that high score screen seems off.

So what is this about Awkward Bathing, Since this was listed in a bolded sub-title, I would have thought there would have been more of a mention or explanation of it in the story.

First thought that it would be some sort of fan service, but why wouldn't you just say that.

From what I gather from twitter, if you play as a male character, you can get bath scenes with the other male characters. But there's been no word on if a female character will get a bath scene with female characters. At least as far as my twitter feed has commented.

Well, that does make sense, since traditional bathing houses are like that. So it is not fan service, but realism.

I have that Dr. Mario game and it's a tad more enjoyable than the originals. I haven't tried multiplayer yet though, I need to get a little better before I try.

I'm also glad Chibi Robo Zip Lash has the Amiibo included as it keeps scalping to a minimum (they'll try for used copies but for the many of us who buy new and don't want to deal with them, this is good news) and the game looked like something that requires the Amiibo anyway so yeah very good news.

A later release will have all three routes, and with any luck that'll be the version Nintendo releases in North America.


i would want to play all the routes, so i'm also hoping for that to be the case, even if the whole thing costs a little bit more than standard for a 3DS game Sad (not that i want it to!)

Bravely Second is a ways off yet. Mrgrgr indeed! Mad

Natsume's still fighting, huh? the HM Wars continue! Razz i'm kinda curious to see if they maintain the visual style they established in Lost Valley (did not look appealing to me whatsoever) or if they'll go for a different aesthetic. (on a semi- related note, i've been hooked on Story of Seasons since it came out. i've played over 300 hours... Embarassed)

Considering the fact that both games apparently feature different content and design aesthetics and presumably will have god knows how much text not really.

That's okay Todd we Americans don't like rice balls and there are some people who still consider the bombings of Hiroshima & Nagasaki justifiable due to the presumed causalities that would've occurred had we invaded the country outright.

FYI the rice balls comment is a joke, the bit about Hiroshima and Nagasaki.......not unfortunately.

Dr. Wario already happened in WarioWare: Mega MicroGame$! He didn't stick around with it for very long though.

Hyped about the new Guilty Gear characters. I was expecting Johnny and I'm guessing my waifu Dizzy is coming but I have this strange feeling that Jam will be announced next.

Yep, there are still some of us around. Probably when WWII becomes ancient, you'll be free to apply modern ideals against the 'war' society that used the bombs, without having a bunch of old fuddy-duddies ruining all your fun.

Steins;Gate came out in Europe today, got my two copies! (why not get it on both PS3 and Vita) Both with spoilery art book and I got a metal Upa with the PS3 one. And two badges. But mostly metal Upa! Adorable lil' guy.
