@floating_knives: The actual netcode is good. Even 1 bar connections are pretty playable as long as you let the intro animations play out.

I haven't ventured online for a long time, but the game was basically dead on arrival in Europe. You'll probably find a few people still playing but there won't be a ton of rooms up.

I never got around to watching the 3rd movie, but isn't there a lot of evidence suggesting that the Rebuild movies are a sequel/continuation of the original series?

I feel like most people watching these movies have already seen the series, and coupled with the fact that the movies have a shorter runtime than a full series I didn't mind them skipping out on some of the more in depth character development.

Lightning Returns. Lame story, boring quests and some bad technical/graphical issues.

That sucks. I was playing through Golden recently and Troy Baker still killed it with Kanji, the cast as a whole is very strong too.

I played Arena with the Japanese voices though, so it doesn't bother me that much.

More diversity is always welcome, but someone like Elizabeth Simins is not someone I want to see spearheading that campaign. I only needed to browse through her twitter account to see that there's no point in taking this seriously. The thing reads like a parody.

Dragon Quest VII! If this is fake (most likely) I'm going to be so dissapointed.

Can we all just agree that AKB48 is just the fucking worst?

Why's that? Their music is hardly inspired but it's catchy enough and largely inoffensive. I like them enough that I sat through the entire 4+ hour election that aired yesterday.

@humanity: To be honest as long as you know your basic moves and when to use them as well as some fundamentals you'll do well enough. 1 frame links and combos aren't necessary to play competitively against 90% of people online.

@fredchuckdave: The retail release isn't full price and I believe it comes with all of the DLC costumes. It's actually quite a decent deal for new players.
