I don't like her either, but at some point it doesn't matter what we think of the guests because it's their fucking show. They're not going to say to anyone "Sorry, you can't be on the show because a lot of our audience thinks you're annoying."
Actually, it does matter what we think to an extent because who else are they making it for?
You are correct on your thoughts, Jeff. I only have a single game on my want list for the DS and I also consider Japanese imports too. I think it's pretty obvious that all signs are point towards 3DS at the expense of the current DS hardware.
I'm going to get both. For you, I don't know, but I'd say go with KOFXII. Arc System Works' fighters are always very complex even when compared to others like Virtua Fighter. KOFXII seems to be taking it back to the KOF '95 and '96 kinda feel and that might work better for you than BlazBlue.
