I'm curious, and can't find the information anywhere: Does ITSP support cross-platform play between 360 and PC? It's just the Games for Windows Live thing that's confusing me about it.

That's almost as long as the live stream was! Which was just us replacing nouns of titles or quotes with "Batman".  So why the fuck did I stay on for that entire time?! But it seems everyone's just about done. Almost everyone who's actually chatting (though there's apparently still 330 people watching and 185 people chatting) has given their final "good luck, have Batman!" and I'm finally going to leave the spot I've been sitting for EIGHT hours and go eat for the first time today. 
Here's hoping I make it past the door without collapsing.

Hooray for DLC, I suppose.

Yes, I'm aware that there is no SSB4 or whatever, but I've been reading a lot of people's speculation on a new Smash Bros. and what characters they'd like to see in it. A thread that noted the protagonist of Okami, Amaterasu, being in SSB didn't have many suggestions for how she could play, at least not very detailed ones. 
This is a character profile for Amaterasu that I wrote back in November of '08 in a now run-down little forum that destroyed itself, despite my predicting it from about January. 
The first post I made about it:

I posted an explanation post, detailing things about terminology from the game that might not have been understood, but luckily, since this is Giant Bomb, you can just look at the Okami wiki for details. 
The second post was for her grabs, which I had forgotten to include.

Out of all of that, in the year since I wrote it, I'd probably only change the Final Smash details to just automatically drawing a brush technique, rather than making the player do it. Other than that, I think it's a pretty good, comprehensive character profile sheet. 
The only thing that is wrong with it is that I put so much time and effort into writing all of it when I did (like, almost two hours) for nothing. I don't write videogame fanfiction, but I suppose when they do take a look at what they're doing, they must feel similarly.

Is this the best deal in gaming since the Orange Box? I cant think of anything since

Wow, that's exactly what I thought, glad to see I wasn't the only one.

I'm not too surprised by them being able to fit the games all on one disc, the technology isn't that far-fetched anymore.

Cool, since the place that used to have Brawl tourneys that I'm registered with diversified itself to get more members, I'll go along with this. I'm getting a V-Box, too, so if anyone wants to play games longer than 3 minutes with me, that's cool, I can record it (I'll post when I do have the V-Box, I don't at the moment though). I won't post too much though, mostly because I'm already trying to just keep on top of topics from about 5 different gaming sites and some TV show sites along with preparing to move house and I'm trying to learn some computer languages so I can begin my journey in game development.

Anyway, short version: I'm in, won't be posting all that much.

By the way, anyone wondering, the DSi is… AWESOME!!!! The one time something came to Australia first!!! HAHAHAHAHAAAA



P.S - Brawl has been here for almost a year, just clarifying.

I think I might get it, hell, it sure beats playing WW2 games that have been going on for longer than WW2 and keep focusing on America's last good deed as a nation.

Still, in comparison with many other games, the story seems to be the only invigorating thing, the gameplay looks to be very stock standard FPS at the moment, actually, I probably won't get it, RTCW will still satisfy me for long after this flops.

I would go on a large rant about how insane parts of America are in regards to child safety, (Madam, do you realise how many suspicious websites your son has logged on to, and how many people he has conversed with online? That doesn't matter, he's taking a picture of his feet with a videogame, a pedophile's going to find him now, can't you help him?!) But then I remember Clean Feed, here in Australia and I come crashing down, knowing that parental retardation is never restricted to nationality, race, gender, 2, or even 1 digit I.Q law enforcers, whatever.

Still, it's always worth reading a "story" like this when you're feeling down and you need a really good pick-me-up to help get through it.

Okay, played the online, while my first attempt ended in failure due to the fact that, as I knew would happen, I couldn't find anyone, but the second try a few days later, I realise that it bloody well makes up for no local multiplayer, by a long shot, both modes were well done, though the ranking battle worked much better than the Free Battle, mostly because the Free battle missions were over in about 5 minutes because I just plowed through to the end of the mission while the other players were trying to figure out why the bugs weren't dying when they shot them in the metal parts.

The Ranking Battle works very nicely, the main reason for it being that the map, while always the same, was not only FUCKING HUGE!!!!, but was also not available outside the mode, therefore you couldn't practice and get good without being in a battle, making the mode completely unique, even though I still kicked ass in every battle I was in and won by several thousand points, even after dying against the boss, I still thoroughly enjoyed the online mode and look forward to playing more, now if only it was on a disc we could play deathmatches on that map, or get real multiplayer, I'm seriously surprised though, mostly because I actually like this game, it's just astounding that I enjoy it, were it not for that irritating voice constantly saying "That's why you're still a kid!" I'm actually working on a video review for the game, and as soon as I get a video camera I'll be making it.
