Rockman 2, Conclusion: It's Not Just Him

That LAG. Argh.

Imagine having a delay of up to half a second after pushing the jump button. In Mega Man 2, one of the platformiest platformers to ever plat a form.


The New Weekend Flail begins tomorrow!

The King Game: Fight Against Demons (Episodes 1-4)

By now I think we're all familiar with Backstroke of the West. If not, you'll probably enjoy going here and reading this, then watching this on YouTube.

But if you don't feel like clicking, here's the short version: Backstroke of the West is a bootleg of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith with subtitles added by the bootleggers, who translated the movie back into English from Chinese. Hong Kong has always been a source for inexpensive and highly unauthorized DVD releases. Typically anime were the easiest to get in the USA since the companies responsible for the US rights for those shows didn't have access to epic-level lawyers the way companies like Fox and Lucasfilm do.

Yu Gi Oh! was pretty infamous for having been heavily edited by 4Kids for its US broadcast. There was a store in the mall- one that was later shut down for selling modchipped Xboxes pre-loaded with copied games -that had the first season of Yu Gi Oh: Duel Monsters for about $15. So hey, worth a look, right?

Worth every penny in fact, just for the subtitles.

He probably has Strongth welling in his body too.

Uh, if you say so.

Joey/Jounouchi's name is Shingnon. At least it is now. Names are pretty fluid in "The King Game- Fight Against Demons." Kaiba is sometimes Kaiba, sometimes "Seahorse," sometimes "Seahouse." Yugi is sometimes Yu Gi, or sometimes "Game," which is fairly literal. But somebody clearly used find/replace to make that happen, because we sometimes get Yu Gi where the word "game" is clearly meant.

I hate when that happens.

Game is a pretty cool guy. Eh plays cards and doesn't afraid of anything.

I don't know how accurate this caption is, it's just amusingly creepy.

Oh, and speaking of names, here's what Pegasus' name translates to:

And lastly for now, Insector Haga and Dinosaur Ryuzaki(Weevil Underwood and Rex Raptor in Japanese):

I'm only to episode 4. There's at least one more screen I want from this, and hopefully I'll have it next Friday!

Ogre Battle 77: The Last Zodiac Stone

Expensive though it may be, I pull Saradin and let him take FLAIL's place at the base. His Alignment is immaterial. So are his opponents after a couple rounds of Lich Mojo.

Aisha is the center of attention here, and she's requiring a steady stream of Ankhs and Boots to hold the town. But she's leveling up to only half-useless, so yay?

Ogre Battle 76: On the Brink of Amorality

So, the Tundra.

It's a big-ass stage. But the big problem? I forgot about it until the bulk of my army is massively over-leveled for this gig. So I've got to be extremely careful and FAST liberating this dump, or else our Reputation and FLAIL's Alignment are going to tank and endanger our good ending. Let's see what I can do...

Ogre Battle 75: Everybody Must Get Stoned (Part 2)

Missed one in Diaspola last time- The Lapis Lazuli!

Here in Malano, it's in this hidden town we were too busy to deal with previously. It's the Turquoise! Good thing Kamui works cheap, because the deploy costs for 12 of these bastards are gonna cost me.

Self-Promotion Monday: Food Poisoning and Transformers

This week, Isstvan82 had to take a day off because due to food poisoning. Not the best capper to his and AngeliqueDaemon's anniversary.

And don't forget to check out his channel to see his awesome Minecraft treehouse and his latest installments of Psychonauts!

And this week on Radio Free Cybertron: Brian Kilby, Peter "BWBM" Van, ExVee, John DeLuna and I discuss the Tokyo Toy Show's new Transformers: Prime entries and bacon sundaes. The verdict on the bacon sundae, sadly, was: "Eh."

Rockman 2, Part 14: Flail Status: Failure

Poor Isstvan.

Next week: either I'll step in and see how badly the lag kills me, or we'll be off to a new game!
