Decisions, Decisions…


So I ended up not getting the present I had planned for kame because the stores I thought would have it didn’t.  Looks like I’ll have to use the internet to get Eternal Sonata.  Can anyone who’s played the game let me know if the Japanese voice track is available in Eternal Sonata?  Aya Hirano saying “Reberu Oppu!” adds to the appeal of the game.  Anyway, this will be my last contribution to the 12 moments collection.  Bro-ham will be back at the helm for September onward.  I’d like to wish everyone a happy holidays, and I’ll see you all in 2009.

Anyone do their holiday shopping yet?  I think the three of us are heading out later today.  I’m not good at this whole getting gifts thing.  This probably isn’t going to end well…

shigofumi-09-large-11Looks like Fumika and Chiaki’s trip stateside is delayed until further notice… Someone’s not happy… (points at self)


 I think it’s time for me to get involved in the Christmas Spirit.  Finished my last exam for the semester yesterday.  To follow up on the aside bro-ham brought up yesterday, I’d advise giving GPRO a shot, if you’re into management-type racing games.  Anyway, let’s get-a-crackin’.

Yep.  Figured I’d have to throw this out eventually this season.. didn’t think so soon though..

chigaimasu-48.jpgIn the NFL, outside of the final two minutes of the first and second halves, coaches have the option to challenge a play, to have a certain play reviewed by the officials because they believe the boys in the zebra shirts got the call on the field wrong. Anyway, Here’s my challenge flag pointed at KyotoAni for a play during the baseball episode of Clannad After Story.

There are some reviews (Spice and Wolf, Shigofumi, Hatenkou Yugi, True Tears, Clannad) still left on the draft table, and between the three of us, we’ll have to discuss whether or not any of those will be worth presenting at this point. But the winter season is so 7 weeks ago, right? So let’s put that aside and start talking about Spring 2008.
