Umineko no Naku Koro ni = Mafia?

Friday, July 10, 2009

To me, it’s a party game, but in anime form.

After I finished watching episode 2 of Umineko no Naku Koro ni, the first thing that popped in my head was the party game Mafia. I’m not going to bother explaining the episode since there are so many blogs that summarize different types of anime so I’ll just go straight to my comparison.

“First Kurt, then Tupac, and now the meter room…” 100 points so the person who can give me the reference.

whitehatazn-48.jpgSince bro just wanted to do a few and now that I’m officially on (paid) vacation (yay for the salary system), I’m going to take over for the rest of these posts. I noticed something odd when I was doing the research for this. It turns out that page 500 of the animenano aggregator doesn’t seem to work no matter what is on the page. After going on vacation from my partial job of finding computer program bugs, you’d think I’d able to avoid these.

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.

Ayu and Misuzu have a new home.  And so does… basically everyone.

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…

Suzumiya Haruhi no Spin-off: Anime’s answer to Duke Nukem Forever.

chigaimasu-48.jpg When I saw bro-ham’s first post, and we talked about the theme he wanted to take with these 12 moments, I told him immediately that this was the day that I wanted to cover.  I’m very happy he gave me to green-light to do today’s topic.

 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’.

Speaking as someone who develops new technology for military systems, this is one of those times where I wonder if technology has gone backwards…

whitehatazn-48.jpgOn a non-anime side note, both bro and I have been playing gpro alot recently. I just received another 5th place in the last race which makes it my third straight 5th place and my fifth in the last six races. Sigh. If anyone is interested in online formula racing, drop me a comment and join. I’d like to get a team started. Read the rest of this entry »
