As usual, blogger was having problems for almost the entire day today. wanted to post this around 11 am EST time. so this is my original post. added some extra gaming info revealed later on in the day.
A rant post. Been thinking, after almost 3 years (maybe a bit longer when i had a different user name) at AoD, i'm thinking about bowing out, not totally...yet. I'll probably post once or twice about something HiME/Otome related or a post in the R2 forum orgy. I've personally lost interest w/ the forum over the past year when most ppl i found interesting to 'talk' to, left or started posting less. Thus, i was not partaking in much discussion aside from some games and HiME-related topics. Those, who go to AoD may see that all i post about now are game news, r2 covers and HiME/Otome stuff, whereas i used to take part in more different kinds of forums. Also, the posting style of late from some posters (which i will not name) have really annoyed me personally and i roll my eyes each time i see them post. So yeah, my enjoyment has deeply declined there. Also, as silly as it may be, when i had joined AoD, my goal was to get a custom title cuz that was cool (in my mind), alas, i've achieved that and entitled my self Lord of the HiMEs/ZHiMEs (though i had a different name in mind before HiME), which is an homage to Lord of the Flies, which sort of was HiME's inspiration and the fact that the book was 'cameoed'. I only chose that title cuz I AM the biggest HiME/ZHiME fan there and started all the hype before the show aired. The only ppl i remember discussing the show w/ me then was bakabb, gatts and crocodile. Also, as i mentioned before, i was also the one who came up w/ 'ShizNat'. As much as I love HiME/ZHiME franchise and it make seem like it's my fave show, it's still not close to my overall fave anime. I'd say HiME would rank 5 or 6 for me, whereas, ZHiME ranks just outside of the top 10. Without further ado, i decided to post game news here for games that interest me like I used to. My game news posts will be diff from my normal posts, thus no pics or themes really. Anyways, hope that didn't bore ya :P. FFVII AC comes out finally tomorrow!! booya for those who couldn't afford the R2 LE.

W/ the latest announcement of DBZ Sparking! NEO (aka Budokai Tenkaichi 2 for stateside), Atari announces Chou/Super DBZ for June. I assume this is the NA release as the JPN release was already given and is also scheduled for June. Needless to say i'm hyped for both games being a DB fan. (edit: IGN English announcement news, they say July which i presume is correct.)
