    Again, if this fails to catch on here, I would be happy. It would be nice to see Japan's small development companies give up on using the creepy ecchi and moe crutches.

    Oi, as if the creepe moe trend needs a second lease on life. Thanks to these character design types and the pursuit of weirdo otaku yen/dollar, I've been driven off from a lot of the strategy and role-playing games I used to play. So in a way, it is "good" to know this is another game I have to stay away from.

    I had no idea Waluigi was part of D-Generation X until now. Good on you, USG!

    There are very few things more childish than trying to be "adult" with obscenities, ultra-violence, and useless shocking displays.

    The past few years have been interesting for me, at least, because a lot of news has revealed both the unseemly systems and implications of Valve's approach to running a market. Everyone wins because nearly every interaction is monetized under the assumption that competition will "naturally" bring out the best. It is a laissez faire experiment that seems to be falling apart predictably, from a flood of garbage games, scams and cheap tricks pushing flotsam, middlemen strong-arming creators, Hell, even Valve profits off of children gambling with their favorite histrionic man-babies. There are a lot of problems, but it may say a lot for Valve's fundamentalist belief in "crowds", or the economic energy of consumption, that they are doubling down on the same approach.

    This is awful news, especially to know he has a family. Though this may inadvertantly point out how important a buddy system is for streaming. If you and your best friend with the old and regrettable xxdarkninjax420x69xx handle tag team a 24 hour stream, it may head off a rare, weird, and dangerous condition like the clot mentioned.

    For a moment, the name Stanton briefly confused me, alongside the little quote, as I immediately thought of Rich "Zvei" Stanton, but I am glad no one is gunning after him. As for James Stanton, um, I love the decision but don't care for the parties involved, so yay.

    It is good to see Konami is fully commited to the whole "erotic" angle with these last efforts to make money in vidjagames. I wonder when we will see the sexy ladies of the sensual world of soccer in PES?

    Dark, satorical, and ultra-violent? That means it is adult, like me!

    Here is hoping there will be a bit more to the series than that, or it goes full-tilt and looks like Ninja Scroll as drawn by Rob Liefeld.

    Well, for a lot of people, there may have been, or still are, hopes that Mei was representative of the, hmm, maybe size 10-12 norm. Not unlike Zariya being a depiction of a swol lady, for some fans, Mei being chubbily average is a nice break from the usual, even in the context of Overwatch, where most of the female characters stick closer to the size 0-2 mold. That Mei is larger, it is neat to see that a fantastic world is big enough to acknowledge cherubic women (especially if she is meant to be not hourglass-shaped), so I can see why fans are annoyed if they think Blizzard is walking back the depiction.
