Umm, Melty Blood pt. 2

Posted by dandycandy on July 17, 2006

I’m becoming rather obsessed with Melty Blood.  My husband and I are thinking of starting a company dedicated to holding tournaments for various popular and cult video games, Melty Blood included.  Next year, we’re going to hold a huge tourney for the game, and I’ll give the details as soon as they becoming available.  For now, here’s a tournament video from Japan.

Akiha is the sh*t, lemme tell you.  Do any of you think this is a good idea?  Would anyone like to see something like this.  I’d love your thoughts.

Umm…melty blood

Posted by dandycandy on June 8, 2006

I don't think that I will ever get to play this games, but I want to, one day, if I get a chance to get good at it. 

Melty Blood – a staple of late night unofficial tournaments at anime conventions everywhere.  Not only does it trip me out with all gothicness of it (it's based on a pretty disturbing manga) but the combos and air combos involved in it rivals games such as Guilty Gear (Melty Blood seems a bit faster to me, though, but again, that's just me).  Plus the theme is pretty dark and disturbing (the character Akiha fights with the blood on her fingertips), which I like a lot.  I don't know where to download the game, let alone download it, so I can't say much in terms of gameplay, but it looks pretty beautiful.  Have a look for yourself.

Maybe in the future, I will have more info, but if you are already an owner of the game, I envy you.  This game looks sweet as hell.

A Disgaea Anime has been announced!

I passed by AnimeSuki, and I found out that there's an anime based on the hilariously fabulous PS2 game release a few years ago!  I loved this RPG to death, and hear there is an anime out there with my favorite characters (Etna is my love) is awesome!  Geneon has licensed it for release in the US, and I hope they use the original English voices from the game, because even though I bet the Japanese voices rock too, the English class, especially Etna, made me laugh really really hard!

Scream it loud, I'm goofy and proud….OMFG, YAY!! Best news I've heard all day!

crispy gaming – Persona 3

Posted by dandycandy on May 18, 2006

OMFG, YAY! Persona 3!

I'm travelling around youtube, I have no idea what brought me to search for persona stuff, but I stumbled upon this trailer of Persona 3 for the PS2.  I love the Persona series, and I'm still miffed that they ported Persona 2: Eternal Punishment to the PSOne, but not Innocent Sin (it would have made a lot of plot points much easier to understand).  But from what I've heard, Atlus had this game at their booth at E3, and it's coming to the States.  I can't wait!!  A lot of gaming magazines have dissed all the Persona games as well as the Megami Tensei (Digital Devil Saga) games, but I think Persona is an ingenious series.  Not only does it take place in the present day, a rarity with RPGs because it's either in the past or the future, not to mention, hot damn, it's got some serious fashion sense.  The uniforms are so cool, anyone who cosplays in them with be glomped incessantly.  Plus, the guys are looking pretty hot!  Hard to do, since Persona 2 heroes Katsuya and Tatsuya still give me pretty good dreams.  (and before your Yaoi mavens decide to investigate, they are brothers.  and if that doesn't stop you, all I can say is ewww).  I don't know much about the game since the almost 18 minute trailer (which was something to salivate over, lemme tell you) was in Japanese, but it looks pretty surreal and much more beautiful than all of it's predecessors (there have been Shin Megami Tensei games on the PS2, but the Persona games have yet to make it to the waning system).  It looks like it's going to be a more decided disturbing game as well.  I can't wait.

As soon as release info is brought to light, I will post it, too.  For now, here are a few pictures I got from the trailer.  Enjoy.

I don't know who he is...but that's hot

Another cutie...thank you, Atlus!

A really cute girl...

She is one tough woman.

Edit: And I got this article from IGN! SWEEET dandy candy!
