@corruptedevil: Oh, man. Japanese Power Rangers. Thank you!

@fattony12000: I did, eventually. I was out, then. They speak way too fast for me. I think anime for kids might be more suitable.

@video_game_king: @fattony12000: I played Dragon's Dogma in Japanese for about 2 hours. I could understand most of the one sentence companion dialog. "Sochirade ikimasu!"

But then I got to the castle and the kingsguard or whatever started talking about dragons and their history and I was like :O

I decided to leave the Japanese games for when I am further ahead in N3. I watched that Bayonetta anime, which is fantastic, by the way, and understood more than I did video games. I am also watching Captain Tsubasa.

What is a good Japanese dorama? All the doramas my friends watch are these romantic girly ones, and I can't stand those.

@fattony12000: @yaobikuni: Domo arigato gozaimasu.

I checked out both Japan Guide and Lang-8. They're great, and exactly what I was looking for.

What is the level of Bilingual News? I have only recently finished N4, so there might be a vocabulary issue with the podcasts. Nonetheless, I have been looking for Japanese podcasts forever. Thank you very much for that.

Thanks for the replies folks. I will ... capitalize on them?

Well, you're going to be dealing with about a four hour time difference, so you're kind of lucky there?

Other than that, all I can really say is Google Skype groups and hope you get lucky. My recommendations? Pester the shit out of Lang-8 and Mixxer and.....there are probably others.

I might have some other advice, but that's it for now.

Thank you for the advice, your grace.

I never knew about lang-8. Might just be what I am looking for.

Sting invented hiding in plain sight. Sting mask over Sting make-up in a Sting t-shirt.

Great Muta looks like he's having the same problem with his entrance cowl and his in ring mask looks awful in my opinion.

That's not a TNA thing, he designed that himself.

Well then that's just a funny coincidence. Not sure of the reputation of his tailor but the bulbous look of the mask looks uncomfortable in the ring. I guess it's suppose to convey some sort of oni vibe. Perhaps it's meant to double as a head pad to reduce concussions given his age?

Pure speculation but I'd guess that Jeff designed his own mask too, given that Willow was his masked wrestling person in backyard wrestling 20 years ago.

That is the case, yes. Which is why, I'd wager, their masks look bad. There is no real production behind them. TNA doesn't have the money to produce your stupid mask! Just wear a Jason mask! Who cares!

@euandewar: There are. Those precious few seconds where you look at the ground and everything moves super-smooth. Ahhhh. 60FPS.

I remember the first time I saw the E3 demo I thought the game was going to be absolutely humongous. The way they transitioned from a co-op level to a multiplayer level and promised after it was done you could go exploring the world was impressive.

Now I know it's just separate areas that have long loading times between them, and that there might only be a few of them.

Next generation has not impressed me so far. I am really hoping Witcher 3 will break this trend.

Ohaio duders,

This is not the desperate beg of a socially-awkward, lonely kid that the title might suggest. I promise.

I am a Japanese Arts and Literature student in University of Tehran in Iran. Around 50 people in 80 million population of Iran are learning Japanese, and I am one of them; and native Japanese people in Iran are like dragons in Game of Thrones. There are 3 of them, and they're my sensei.

So as you can see, I could greatly benefit from having a few Japanese friends, to help with learning this wonderful (Also, nuts) language. It seems that everytime my friends/class-mates and I start talking in Japanese, it very quickly gets to a point where we either A) Run out of things to say, e.g. "So desne!" B) Do not know how to say what we want to say.

So who else than the lovely Japanese Giantbombers!

Let me get a little romantic on you and introduce myself. Name's Mohammad Rezaie, 20 years of age, born in Iran, raised in Dubai, primary language's English, and I'm an aspiring filmmaker. Jesus, I feel like I am posting on Gamerdater.

I'll follow you on here, and if you'd be kind enough to link to your FB, I'll add you as a friend and like all your photos.

Oh, and before anyone else does:

Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu
