0:49 Big Apple Anime Fest
Joel: Alas, the only other Con we thought about maybe planning on possibly going to is defunct.
Dave: Don’t worry, Ninja Consultants mailed us about a whole bunch of stuff I’ve been way too lazy to get back to them about!!
1:46 Nambul: War Stories
Joel: The only good thing that was at the CPM panel in 2004.
Dave: Justin Sevakis, we hardly knew ye.
Joel: This game looks to have a similar appeal to Namco X Capcom with the important caveat that this series has proven worthwhile.
Dave: Mostly because Shin Getter Robo makes ANY series worthwhile.
Super Robot Taisen OG
Joel: Looks good to me.
Joel: Man, that turtle looks awesome.
Joel: These things don’t really work like serial numbers.
Joel: Great, I just ruined another chair.
Dave: Great, I just found my FUTURE WIFE.
Dave: Great Mazinger.
Joel: O… h…
6:54 And there goes another chair.
Joel: I need some sort of amish sweat shop churning out chairs in my basement. There are way too many songs that pump me up. Also, this comparison is suprisingly accurate. I say suprisingly because when Dave said this I didn’t actually believe him.
9:55 Matrix: Reloaded
Joel: I tried desperately to like this movie. It didn’t really work out.
Dave: Trying to like anything after the first Matrix is about as futile as life gets.
11:32 Karaoke Ninja definitely got his ninja speed badage.
Joel: Karaoke Ninja, a venerable member of the Frontbeat forum, already corrected us. Mazin is apparently some kind of demon in Japan. It is also an arabic name meaning “rain cloud.”
Dave: So we can assume that “Mazinkaiser” means ‘rain cloud king’?
Dave: Honestly I just figured it was Go Nagai being all crazy and making up words again.
Joel: Oh Go Nagai, you cad!
12:35 G….. …. released by G…..
Joel: I’m not really suprised this didn’t do well. The male characters actually look like men and they never come close to kissing.
Dave: It’s hard not to imprint your desires on fandom as a whole… but this really sucks guys!! Stop avoiding anime because it doesn’t reuse the same damn “LOL U R SHORT!!” joke every episode!
Joel: I would much rather have an anime that reused the same damn “lol, I just ripped your arm off with a coffee grinder” joke every episode.
15:13 Boss Borot
Joel: My robot falls apart … that’s about it.
Dave: Falls apart TO HILARIOUS EFFECT.
Joel: This is your evil mastermind team? A geriatric and a hermaphrodite?
Dave: A geriatric in a UNITARD!
Joel: According to Dave, this is the one. I contend they’re all the same.
Dave: Joel, everyone knows girls can’t drive. This is DOUBLY true for giant robots.
Dave: That picture makes me sorta hot…
Joel: You make me sorta sad.
Dave: Sad you didn’t say it first?
Joel: Sad to be in the same room with you.
Dave: Oh… :(
20:25 Wicked City and Apocalypse Zero
Joel: Breasts…. and vaginas are trying to kill you. Be aware.
Dave: Be aware of how SEXY that is!!
22:14 Dutch Angle
Joel: I wish everything in my life was shot from these angles. Imagine slamming quarters on a counter at 7-11. Now do it with Mazinkaiser camera angles. Pretty sweet, huh?
28:24 Ultimate Mechanical Monster Oblivion Engine …. Doug.
Joel: This is the lamest name ever. I would have accepted Xavier or Alexander. But Gordon is a bust.
Dave: I would’ve accepted only “Awesome” or “Pizza Party”.
Joel: This game is good. Really good. Lots of different endings and pretty entertaining but easy to understand game play. Highly recommended.
Dave: Highly recommended that you dig it out of a landfill where all Dreamcast games/paraphenalia went since NOBODY BOUGHT THE DAMN SYSTEM.
Joel: You people killed Sega.
