Someone who is obsessed with Japan/Japanese Culture/Anime. Vile creatures that must be exterminated.

That friggin' avatar of yours almost made me do a spit take.

@whiskeystrike Why would you assume I was dead? Because I made the conscious decision to not visit this site for over a year as I slowly got rid of 70% of my video game collection? I figured since I wasn't buying new games there was no point in my being a part of this community. I don't even know why I returned other than kinda sorta bored.

"A negative term directed to anyone overly obsessed with Japanese culture to the point where they become annoying."

But here it means: "you like something/anything Japanese? You damm weaboo!" It's baka.

Ugh apparently my ps3 save data is all tied to online functionality. It's so stupid! I keep getting trophy error messages, so I have to start over on every single one of my games. EVERY one. And some are giving me BS messages like "you cannot use data from another user" Really?? Omg.

Gawd, Sony, can't you make a console that will last longer than 3 years? And drop the $100 price tag to fix them please.

On par with The Odyssey from last season.

I always thought that "No Weeaboos Allowed" was a rule across all lounges, not that it stopped any.

Nostalgic, perhaps? Only came here on a whim to see how things were going myself.

From what I've gathered:

Create new profile, copy save data over, delete old profile, log into PSN, sync trophies.

@Sweenix: I'm pretty sure when Xaero said No weeaboos, he was trying to deter Finalstar. Or maybe Charizard.

You could stay anyways, just because.

Was not aware of that. I wonder what the opposite of that would be, i.e., someone who is obsessed with American culture to the point of annoyance.

a Texan.(or mems-ies)

@Technoweirdo Oh gods what have they done to that beautiful song? I do not like. No like at all. And by the look of things you've come to stay, too. I don't know if I'll stay for very long, because I do have a network of friends elsewhere and like I mentioned, I don't buy games anymore to keep up with discussion here.

lol I posted in the old lounge.

Pretty much my first reaction to the song too. On the second listen, I discarded the 'image' of the old song and approached it as a completely new one. And you know what? I liked it. I liked it a lot. Appreciated the more soothing tone compared to the old one and it evoked the image of a fun romp through the savannah night.

@93BlackHawk93 said:

O_T

Beautiful.

I'm glad someone enjoyed it at least~

Oh, can't be arsed to make a full write-up now, but since I'm quoting the two of you...

----------

Angel Beats - Impressions:

Yuri's forceful, but doesn't have the same spunk that made Haruhi a likable character.
Characters (and their quirks) in general get old quick, TK excluded.
Yuri's backstory was overkill.
I wanted to smash Yui's head in after she ruined a major moment for Hinata in one of the earlier episodes.
Don't care very much for the random insertion of villains for the sake of drama.
Don't care very much for the action scenes either as a result of said villains.
Liked Yuzuru's backstory, though it did get too depressing at times.
Yui's backstory. ;-; (I still hate her)
If you want to destroy a computer, destroy the fucking computer, not the goddamn monitor.
Didn't like sudden character behaviour changes in the last ep.
Ending didn't have enough build-up; was rushed. Needed more Kanade and Shiina, but mainly more Kanade.

-

Upcoming VN will hopefully fix my issues,

Speaking of VNs, y'all should learn Japanese to help get the Oreimo VN translated faster. At least up until Kuroneko's route's done. Feel free to leave after~ You know I need this, Brown.

Angel Beats was pretty bad. That said, the rocket chair sequence was hilarious.

Hey guys, if you didn't know already, my ps3's wifi kicked the bucket... Or so I thought, if you could give me some advice, especially if you know about network issues, please take a look at my thread:
