    Hmm. Maybe I watched a different dub? It's brought here by the Animax network. Most of the shows they bring over use the same, recognizable voice actors. What's weird is that the voice actors change...

    Baccano! indeed. Something you don't get very much in anime, which is quite saddening.

    It's out on the telly here, and, since it was the English dub, I expected it to turn out pretty well,...

    Speaking of Lavos,

    I was expecting him to wipe the floor with me, when I fought him (after the whole Black Omen thingy, if I recall), but... it finished pretty fast. Then again, I guess I was...

    The CCs where I'm studying are pretty decent. Good selection of games. The problem is, everyone here either plays CS 1.6, DotA, CoD4 and L4D. They haven't gotten 2 yet, although that might have...

    I'm flying my banner with the Story/Gameplay/Tech camp.

    Give me a good enough story, and I'll slog through whatever mediocre (note, not crap) gameplay you throw at me. I've always thought that...

    I'd have to say Vagrant Story. Something about the game just makes me keep coming back. Maybe its the ability to create and improve your very own arsenal. Always did have a thing for customizable...

    Ilium and its sequel, Olympos, by Dan Simmons.

    Halfway through Olympos and I am very impressed. The author's been around for quite some time too, though I haven't read any of his prior books. It...

    Watched it a few days back, non-3d. It was... Good. Impressive. I might even say the best movie I've watched in cinema this year.

    Then again, I didn't catch all that many.

    Back when I first got the PSX, in 199...5? there was a game called Strike Point. It was a helicopter combat game, and it was hard as hell. The objectives were obscure, the game mechanics (pulleys,...

    Read a comment to a Dtoid article mentioning licking the "Sterling Silver" several hours ago... It's... All I've been able to think about.

    Frosty. I'd imagine he's something like a mud/sand golem, just... with snow. And, since it's winter and it snows, he regenerates rather quickly. Rather hard to kill, methinks. Rudolph doesn't have...

    Dawn of Mana. PS2.

    I bought it thinking it'd be kickass like Legend of Mana for the PS. Got home and ran a wiki/google search, which I should've done earlier.
