Ketsui and DOJ on my PC with a Saturn pad. The sound isn't quite right but everything else is smooth as butter.

Yea, Data East was dynamite in the late 80s-early 90s. Does anyone have some big list of all of their SSPs? I feel like there's probably a few I've missed.

I just discovered Super Burger Time at HEY over the weekend and am enjoying it. There's some quirks with the controls when scaling ladders and the amount of enemies can get crazy, especially if your weapon times out, but its very solid. I think this genre has become one of my favorites over the past...

I picked this up recently at a Book Off and enjoyed it. Really hard not to enjoy a comic that has: - Prince and Mike Tyson as villains - Prince's throne made of naked women with their ample bosoms acting as arm rests - lots of swear words in English (like "Fuck boy!" and "Fuuaaack!&qu...

Simply put: some people are born with the courage to overcome homosexuality and some are not. Goddamn. I`m not sure you`re going to have much luck finding people here that agree with you on all of this. Might be better off checking your local churches, prisons, Klan rallies or shmups.com for some s...

Basically what NTSC-J said. You admittedly slap them altogether in a category. I generally tend to give human psyche a bit more credit than that. I mean, seriously... do you know why you like women? I think this is the key right here. Sexual preference is not a conscious decision. There are people ...

As for your question, I have had two lesbian friends, two bisexual male friends, countless female friends claiming to be "bi", and five or six gay friends. Why? Maybe because you use words like "subhuman" and that they "define weakness". I generally wouldn't use words ...

Siren is now "that guy."

But since I also don't feel like getting into it, here's something that made me LOL: this kid at the end of Back to the Future III. This trilogy really goes sour as it goes on but the first still holds up.

Not very (if you ignore scoring). I beat it on my fourth attempt. Probably the easiest last boss in all of Cave's library.

I'm in the mood to try to pad my list with 1-credit-clears. I think Randorama holds the unofficial Western record with 113 arcade shooters beat, might be kind of fun to chase that.

Edit: My count is at 56. Long way to go...

I like Akira Club, but it's not much of a read since it's almost all art, but there is some bonus stuff in the back that's kind of neat. Worth owning for Akira buffs, of course. There's a two-part series called The Continuity of Akira that I've always been interested in but it commands a high price ...

Been a while since I read them and the last time was when my Japanese was crappier than it is now (which is still crappy), so any stuff I didn't understand I just chalked up to me being slow. I think it's mostly all pretty standard, although I recall having trouble with the rose story. A lot of thes...

Hard to read as in convoluted? Akira is a volume or two too long, but all of his other stuff is real short so it's all pretty easy to read. There's just so little to choose from, unfortunately...Akira was like 90% of his manga career. His other stuff is also really funny, which is not really the imp...

Yea the color editions were released here but they're in large volumes and don't come cheap. I have the 6-phonebook volume set that was later released in the states by Dark Horse and it's the cheapest alternative here at about 250 yen per tome. Manga is about the only superb deal you can get nowaday...

I'm not really sure what the "new view of Akira" here is or why the guy in the article likes that particular background image so much, but who cares, Akira rules and always has. I can recall my junior high days spent rewatching it everyday after school and I still read the manga from time ...

I beat versus mode but puzzle is a whole different story. I'm not especially versed in the series, but from my personal experience, the Azumanga Daioh game is the hardest. Beats my ass every time.

It's still a ways off from a counterstop, but I looped Outzone 4 times before getting munched at the start of the 5th round with a score of 5.5 million. I'm satisfied with this and don't feel like making the 3-4 hour run necessary for 10 million so I'll move on to the next goal from my revised list:...

I checked the ports and it says that bittorrent is one of the sites it allows and doesn't have a firewall blocking it, so I dunno. Pretty lame.

No idea, but it's very likely something I'm doing. One day they just stopped working. I uninstalled and reinstalled the newest version of bittorrent, and to my knowledge wasn't doing anything different and hadn't installed any other programs that may have affected it, and still it won't connect.

I'm pretty surprised it's this high, although not being able to download torrents anymore kind of prevents me from fully enjoying these speeds.

Of Chrono Cross? I decided to play it in Japanese because I could use the practice and had enough of the "colorful" accents in the domestic version.
