The Micro actually came out nearly a year after the DS, making it extra baffling to anyone expecting anything other than some kind of novel vanity item.

Same diff!

What was the timing between the Micro and SP II: Backlight Harder?

Wikipedia says they were released in the same month (September '05).

Ah. I just remember them having like two GBA strains alongside the bright, shiny new DS and it being... a bit much.

I was actually pricing replacement skins and systems, and the Micro isn't as cheap as I expected it'd be by now. The Famicom edition one from Japan was going for a cool $250 on eBay. Zounds.

Gonna try and get the next strip out sooner than later, so I don't feel as 'rusty' going in.

Yeah, that was back when the big N was still trying to sell the story that the DS was a new line of hardware "alongside" the GB line, not a replacement. I'm... not sure anyone ever really bought it. I think it was mainly a CYA story in the event the DS didn't stick, which we may remember was actually a concern during its first year or so.

Default PASSION! Shall we give our lives for the stage?

[+/-]#6: Valkyria Chronicles


Sorry there's no teaser for this one. It's hard to 'find' Nazi-themed toys around here.

Jeez, it counts as "an older title" already?
Anyway, much <3 for Valkyria Chronicles.

(Insert plug for my article on it.)
Dang links screwing up spoiler and white text.

In a very relative sense, since it's a trophy-less PS3 game. I kind of wish they would go back and add them to some games, but I'm not really a trophicheivement addict or anything like that.

I'm working on something real special for Mass Effect 3 in case anyone was wondering when the next one of these was gonna be. Hopefully I can put it all together in the next day or two now.

Thanks, it took me long enough.

Coming next time: [+/-] probably jumps the shark a mere 8 episodes in.

Props Manna these are 1000x more readable now. I love that the only thing I know about Mass Effect 3 is the bad ending.

My thought process with regards to the Mass Effect series went literally like this:

1) Hm, people seem to like these Mass Effect games. I should look into them.

2) Oh, it's space opera. That's not really my thing, but I guess I could live with it as long as the gameplay is good.

3) ...And it really wants to be a third-person shooter? But I hate third-person shooters! And every other game is already a third-person shooter! The story had better be great!

4) And now everyone's complaining that the ending sucks?

5) Thanks for saving me a few hundred hours, internet.

To be honest, I'd still rather have had the game be more RPG and less shooter, even after getting used to the controls. Halfway through ME2 I was still trying to go into VATS when I needed precision aiming.

Thanks for reading, everyone.

Armored Core V will be up sometime this week, sooner than later if I can pull myself out of grinding Team Points since I never seem to be around when they get spent (and honestly, I blow in PvP anyway.) You can catch a little teaser if you Face Third Half on LikeBook.

HINT: IF I PUT OFF A REVIEW BECAUSE I'M PLAYING THE GAME TOO MUCH IT'S GOOD

Got some other doodles I want to show off soon too. Considering making a non-review spinoff comic for print-on-demand or something if there seems to be interest.

Any formatting suggestions now that I'm 'polishing' things more? (granted, there's only 1.2 colorized strips online right now.) I sort of like having a 'verdict' at the end, but it always feels shoehorned and most I've discussed with think it's clear enough where I stand on the thing.

This whole thing basically started with Dissidia 012's text review, since it's a game that I had a serious love-hate relationship with. I enjoyed it, but it also infuriated me to the point I had to put the game down and drive around town in the middle of the fucking night to cool off. I may come back to it in comic form in the future, but I don't really want to repeat myself too much.

The nixed 'original' issue was a bundle review of the New Vegas DLC's, going from the angle of the girls being inserted into the game and having the best/worst experiences possible (Eishi found all the neato exclusive armor, weapons, and pals around with the Dead Money companions while Dixie repeatedly choked to death in The Fog.)

Glad ya like. The skintone shift was a last minute addition- the other two had light skin and dark clothes, since I'd wound up making Sola's outfit so pastel-y, I figured giving her the old Rally Vincent Tan would make her pop more. In retrospect, I kinda wish I'd make her look less like that one chick from Bleach, but the purple was gonna be there from mixing red and blue, and the ponytail was supposed to be an 'in-between' for Eishi's pigtails.

Hey, dark skin in purple works, just ask Anthy Himemiya.

Shouldn't that first screen say "Guten Morgen"? And I think "Buongiorno" while I'm at it. Also I think I'm getting the "Tunak" reference but missing "Garbage..."

AC Neutralizer is a nice touch.

When you boot the game up instead of a normal title screen, you get an AC startup screen with about a dozen versions of 'good morning' before it flashes in english and the computer voice starts into the "Main system..." stuff. I just thought I would toss in GARBAGE DAY!! and Tunak Tunak Tun for the hell of it. It actually says like "Buono Mattina" or something, I think.

G Gundam reference, yesssssss.

I hope Sola has some respawns, though, I like her design. Not that she should get any full reviews or anything...
