S3xy 64DSC devblog #2 (+PTCGO,ANIMU)

For better or for worse, I've settled on the initial idea I came up with.

The game's title is Verdigris, and I would not be surprised if it turned out to me the most simplistic 64DSC entry. Hopefully lots of effort and polish will turn Verdigris into something interesting and worth playing though.


Onto other things, Pokemon TCG Online. Is sooooo much better than Magic Online. Prettier, smoother, faster, cheaper… the only downside is that Magic's a better game at its core, but I'd say Pokemon's a reasonably close 2nd in the TCG arena. The only thing that could make Pokemon TCG Online even better is if there were an iOS/Android app, and if there was an offline single-player campaign akin to Duels of the Planeswalkers.

I wouldn't mind seeing Konami make a Yu-Gi-Oh Online, but that'd require Konami to stop failing at life, so… never gonna happen. The only good thing left about Konami is Kojima Productions.


Last and almost least, animu. Here's what I've been watching:

Chuunibyou S2, though I forget which episode I last watched. I think it was 3 or 4. About as enjoyable as the first season, which is to say… more than you'd expect.

Haven't gotten past the first episode of Gundam Build Fighters. But now that KLK's done and over with, I'll probably pick it back up at some point in the near future.

Finally got around to watching episode 10 of Symphogear this week after quite a long hiatus, it's getting a little silly. I mean, it's always been silly… but now it's trying a bit too hard to be serious. Nonetheless, it's still mildly enjoyable… I'll probably knock the rest out by the end of next week.

2 eps into Pupa… don't feel particularly motivated to watch it, but at the same time, part of me kinda wants to see where it goes. lol

Still only one episode into Space Dandy. Probably won't be advancing beyond that anytime soon, either.

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei is another show I'm still only one episode into, but I'll probably pick this one back up soon-ish.

8 eps into Tonari no Seki-kun… I love this show sometimes, but it's starting to get a bit repetitive, boring and predictable at this point. I was expecting a little more diversity and zaniness in Seki-kun's antics… oh well. I'll still finish it, if only out of hope that later episodes manage to surprise and amuse me like the earlier episodes did… that, and to hear the fantastic OP and EDs a few more times.

Finished Pokemon: The Origin last weekend, t'was pretty enjoyable… though I wish it didn't ultimately amount to a commercial for X and Y's Mega Evolutions at the very end. Plus, I wish it were an actual series… so much more fun than the actual, lame Pokemon anime.

5 eps into Yowamushi Pedal, and I'm in love with it. I'm a sucker for a good sports anime, and this one is just fantastic. Will be finishing this one with speed.

Nisekoi, 2 eps in so far, and it's quite enjoyable. A unique and comically over-the-top take on the whole forced relationship plot, with a surprisingly compelling love triangle thing going on.

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha… just as Nisekoi is a surprisingly fresh forced relationship anime, Inari is a surprisingly fresh take on anime about a main character who transforms. Doesn't hurt that it's also very pretty with above-average animation, and characters who range from extremely adorable to smoking hot.

Stalled 3 episodes into Witch Craft Works. Will probably resume once I finish up some of the shows I'm currently watching, didn't seem super amazing but didn't seem particularly reliant on dem titties either.

1 episode into my 2nd attempt at watching Bakemonogatari. Forgot how batshit insane this shit is, lol…. but that's a good thing. Small doses though, small doses…
