"A group of 15 elite high school students are gathered at a very special, high class high school. To graduate from this high school essentially means you'll succeed in life, but graduating is very difficult. The school is presided over by a bear called Monokuma, and he explains to them that their graduation hinges around committing a murder. The only way to graduate is to kill one of your classmates and get away with it. If the other classmates discover the identity of the killer, the killer is the only one executed. However, if they fail to catch the killer, only the killer graduates and the others are annihilated. Which of the 15 will survive the bloodbath to come?"

This? This sounds fucking awful lol.

@sarumarine: I prefer Sakura Wars 3 for this scene, among other reasons.

Gosh that was funny hearing Patrick describe Danganronpa to Alex and Alex's reactions to it all, oh Japan you so crazy.

It is kind of dumb at every level.

Love the game though. Probably not the fandom.

I can understand that mentality, but I'm in between on this franchise. Like, I want absolutely fucking nothing to do with Danganronpa. Just seeing it makes me physically ill. I call it "The Touhou Effect".

The new DKC is NES difficult, but with unlimited continues; a well made game.

Posted by believer258

Oh good. Now maybe one of the staff will watch Baccano.

Seriously, everyone, even Alex Navarro, needs to see Baccano. It's the anime that Quentin Tarantino would make if he made anime.

Why is Patrick embarrassed and hung up on "Truth Bullets"? It's just a silly metaphor for evidence. The characters don't even mention "Truth Bullets" themselves, because it's purely a gameplay element with a wacky name, similar to "Limit Break" or "X-Factor."

They're only called "Truth Bullets" to fit with game's action-based gameplay gimmicks to differentiate itself from the likes of Ace Attorney. Admittedly, they're really poor gameplay gimmicks and are probably the worst part of the game, but I'd like more discussion about that than the word "Truth Bullets."

Man, if Patrick and Alex are weirded out by Danganronpa, I wonder how they would fair with Ace Attorney or Persona.

I guess I can see how that might happen. I have absorbed a lot of annoying shit about Touhou so I kind of do have an inherently negative outlook on that despite knowing nothing about it.

When Patrick was describing that game, it kinda made me want to play it. Guess I'm a jerk too.

This is your brain on anime.

(Also, I hate anime and Danganronpa is pretty good so far)

Well that's..not right either, but regardless the game pronounces it each time you start up. It leads off the main theme.

Edited by Generic_username

The IOS Ace Attorney compilation is probably the worst version of those games, you'd be better off trying the WiiWare versions, or the standalone version of the first game for IOS.

Of course, the hard-to-find DS versions are obviously ideal, but it's understandable why you wouldn't want to go that route. As a huge AA fan, I'd be stoked if you played them at all, but yeah, that IOS compilation is kind of a poor version.

Also, I would buy a shirt with "This is your brain on anime" with the image Alex described.

I imagine if he did an anime he'd just go all out and do something Shigurui style.

Baccano is great though, I'd recommend it to anyone.

Neo anime editor Patrick Klepek reporting in!

Edited by beard_of_zeus

I went in on Danganronpa blind, just because of the VLR + Ace Attorney comparisons, and I have been enjoying it so far (just finished the second trial, which I thought I had figured out, but there were some neat twists). I'm enjoying it for the same reasons that Patrick described, it's a goofy anime "whodunnit" with some cool mechanics. And the silly bear is pretty likeable, even his voiceover (very much like the rabbit Zero Jr. from VLR). What's up with all these murder games being run by robot/holographic animals?!?!

I finished Tropical Freeze a couple days ago after recently buying a Wii U, I really liked it. HD DK + no waggle + challenging platforming + amazing soundtrack (it really is great!) = a fun time for me.

p.s. The whole anime editor Patrick "going into the anime warzone" conversation made me laugh so goddamn hard.

Patrick's wife: what are you playing?

Patrick: uhhh nothing! Uh porn, yeah that's it! I'm playing porn. Not some anime thing, hardcore porn.

My suggestion, law-wise: The amount of money you've spent over the history of any free-to-play game should be visible on the title screen every time you start the game.

I feel like that would be pretty reasonable and simple.

Somebody just needs to trick John McCain into losing $10,000 dollars on Field Runners so that they'd do it over here.

So when I looked that up on Wikipedia, one of the descriptions was "realistic" when the gif you posted just reminded me of Gantz. (I have never been able to finish the first episode of Gantz).

If I'm not mistaken, you know Japanese, right? Have you ever read the Baccano light novels?

When it comes to entertainment, the only way to not be a jerk is like what you like and dislike what you dislike. Deciding whether it's okay to like or dislike something based off popular consent is truly pathetic. I love anime, and I don't care what the consensus is.

Posted by CaLe

@believer258: If the gore put you off Gantz then yeah, Shigurui is not for you. Not at all.

I know of the Baccano novels but they're not available for Kindle. If they were I'd check them out.
