I have another question to ask, do you think the drop of seinen manga quality perhaps may be due to the increasing focus and influx of the rapidly growing influence of the female audience? Ranging from fangirls to the insane fujioshi fanatic who seems to be the targeted audiences even in a lot of shonen anime/manga/video games alike which seem to abuse the bishonen and female eye candy sexual factor like a broken record.

Bebop is your Favorite Anime ?

Great review of Welcome to the NHK! I agree with everything you said and I don't get why this anime is rated so high?!

It pissed me off so much after a certain arc around episodes 12 - 14 when the MC turned into a brainless, illogical, immature SHEEP. I couldn't sympathise with him at all and I don't get what the anime's theme is? Was it trying to be deep and psychological? Satirical? Emotional? Romantic? I've still got 3 more episodes left but so far it falls short on every single one of those. So I ask myself what is the point?

Sorry for ranting on your profile but I have to cause I can't find many people who share the same views on this.

I can see the perks of playing MGS in order of publication. There wouldn't be any dramatic changes on the controls. I might have to try that sometime!

Worst voice acting in New Vegas, you say? Legate Lanius had an awesome VA. But no one will beat Rex's barks. LOL. I love anything related to the Romans so I didn't mind screwing up my morality and siding with Caesar's Legion. Their correct pronunciations of V's, W's and "Caesar" made me swoon because I also have a thing with Latin. Have you played the new Doom yet? Where you can actually aim at any direction instead of being locked with left and right? It's awesome!

The Mass Effect series are one of my all time favorites. Keep me in touch once you start playing Mass Effect. Always love hearing feed back!

The last sentence of your comment literally sums up my whole entire life pretty much.

Mako-Mankanshoku | 03-02-14, 8:52 PM
Oh man I deeply apologize for my long comments. I'm very talkative when it comes to video games.

Mako-Mankanshoku | 03-02-14, 8:51 PM
Oh my gosh! You're not going in order too? I'm currently switching around from MGS 3 to MGS 4 then to MGS: Peace Walker. Lost buddies! The gameplay mechanics keeps tripping me up all the time, but I guess that's what I get for playing it out of order. If you're interested, the MGS series is supposed to be played like this, story-wise:

I. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
II. Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops
III. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
IV. Metal Gear
V. Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
VI. Metal Gear Solid
VII. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
VIII. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots
IX. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

I have no clue about MG: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain so I didn't put them on the list. Phantom Pain looks great though, but according to Game Informer, it only takes 2 hours to finish it. Snake Eater is one of the best if not, strongest one within the series.

The Last of Us was a second runner up for Game of The Year awards in VGX. GTA V got the spot though. But yes! One of the greatest games Naughty Dog ever created next to the Uncharted series.

The only thing I disliked in New Vegas is the morality system which I screwed up on big time and lead me to siding up with Caesar's Legion. I love the iron sight with the guns though! I wish Fallout 3 didn't have that side aiming.

Soon you'll be right ahead of me because I burnt myself off of trophy hunting lately. I'm planning on enjoying games and taking the slow pace... for now! I admire you for going through your backlog first before buying new games and consoles. I always buy games that I'll never finish because I get bored so easily. There's always those HD Collections for PS2 games like DMC HD Collection or Shadow of the Colossus one, so you won't miss out that much if you plan on buying those. I myself missed a lot of PS2 games because I sold my PS2 pretty early a long time ago. I deeply regret it!

One thing I'll tell you about AC IV is that it has an ABUNDANT collectibles. It's ridiculous and it extends the game by 4 days straight if you plan on collecting all the collectibles in one playthrough.

For AC III, I had the same feeling when I first set foot on Boston. However, the setting was colorless for me compared to the previous AC games. It's still a pretty great game though! The native american touch with the game's soundtracks are amazing! Absorb the environment! I hope you enjoy it!

Why must you remind me that of that heart-breaking and tear-jerking game? I could scarcely see what I was playing because of my eyes were filled with tears. Tears that are mixed of despair, terror and joy. The game is even more terrifying when you're on Survivor mode.

Where did you read about the new Fallout setting in Boston? Was it that hoax website that was broadcasting morse codes?

Haven't played as Harley Queen or Nightwing cuz I had the standard retail edition without the DLC's. its a good thing you bought the GOTY edition of Dishonored, I think it has two story DLC's where you play as the antagonist and you get to know his side of the story. Plus, I've heard it wraps up the plot more nicely. I haven't played the DLC's myself though.

Impressive gaming stats and a badass profile picture! You go man!

I wish I have a high percentage of the games I beat. I have the shortest attention span and I can't play a game after 30 minutes. I end up never finishing it most of the time.

I agree to our opinion on Assassin's Creed III. Connor didn't have a colorful personality to me. However, the game play mechanics are fantastic! The 100% synchronization objectives are almost impossible for me. I'll stop babbling before this turns into an essay.

lol, you dont need to do all the 400 puzzles to catch him :P
But yeah, I got pissed off too. After certain puzzles, there's always a hostage situation or trap someplace, and these encounters are really really awesome. There are like 3-4 riddler encounters where you face deadly obstacles, and solve puzzles, man its worth doing the challenges for I tell you.

Catwoman...man love that piece of ass. Playing her turned me on sometimes, especially when her costume gets torned! (lol)

koreye | 02-28-14, 12:36 PM
LOL! well, truth be told cant argue with that. Story is shit, except for some of the side missions which are interesting, like the mad hatter and the riddler (though they count more as experience than story), and dialogues are cringe worthy (sometimes laughably bad). But I'm someone who doesn't mind bad stories as long as I love the gameplay, and the gameplay in Arkham City was amazing. Also the overall world design and art and character models were superb. I loved completing the riddler challenges, super fun stuff. Even caught the Riddler at the end :D

Ah, I hate Assassin's Creed :P the world and the gameplay feels too artificial for my taste, and the fact that you are practically invincible in combat...

There's a game I would highly recommend: Dishonored. Its like a First person action stealth game, it feels like a combination of Deus Ex (in dialogue and how you're given choices and different ways you can approach the gameplay), Thief (sort of in stealth, how your character is like a master assassin with awesome gear, and the literary quality from the writing and world building aspect), and Half Life 2 (in terms of overall art and aesthetics), but still unique. Even if you dont really like it, you'll find it very interesting as it has some really great ideas up its sleeves.

oh yeah...I finished the Last of US OH MY GOD it was awesome!
but I didn't think it was the loght of gaming. I hated the ending, just wanted to kick Joel's ass in at the end. Awesome game though, just wish there was more.
And yeah, picked up Bioshock infinite. Seems decent so far, but seems like I might get bored of it later on. I liked the overall design, writing and presentation of the first two bioshocks much much more.

koreye | 02-22-14, 9:15 AM
Hey beats! why you no like Arkham City :(

Suave_ | 02-22-14, 12:27 AM
