A Link to My Past: The Pokémon League

I’m sure anyone who grew up with Pokémon back in the major height of its popularity harbored feelings of either wishing Pokémon were actually real or wanted to be Pokémon trainers and travel around to interact with people who shared the same passions as you did. As a kid, Saturdays were my one day of the week to become a social butterfly (or in this case, a social Butterfree?) and meet up with kids around my age range to talk and play Pokémon.

A Look at Dragon Ball GT’s Errors and Oddities – Episodes 2 and 3

Episode 1 of Dragon Ball GT revolved around Goku being turned back into a child through the usage of the Black Star Dragon Balls and discovering that unless all seven are returned to Earth, the planet will be destroyed.  Episode 2 revolves around everyone focusing on getting Goku into space. Gohan was originally going to go with Goku, but Vegeta suggests Trunks and Goten go instead. Pan stows away as Trunks and Goku are on board and starts the ship up before Goten can even board.  Unlike the first episode, there wasn’t too much to really scratch one’s head at. Except for one big design change…

“I’m the Star! Pan Takes off Into Space!!”

A Look at Dragon Ball GT’s Errors and Oddities – Episode 1


During the year 1995, Akira Toriyama’s hit manga series known as “Dragon Ball”  came to an end. Son Goku had found a really strong boy named Oob, who was the reincarnation of Majin Boo, and decided to go off with him to train him to be the Earth’s next protector. In 1996, the anime series “Dragon Ball Z” was on its way to finishing up its adaption of the manga. With nothing left to adapt, the anime would be done with Z. However, Toei Animation opted to push the animated series further by creating brand new material that would not have any source material to adapt. Thus “Dragon Ball GT” was created. After Dragon Ball Z concluded with 291 episodes, Dragon Ball GT began the following week.

Dragon Ball GT…isn’t really too well received with fans. It showed as the series only lasted for 64 episodes. The series just didn’t feel the same to some and there were some downright oddities that occurred through out the series. Some of those oddities being continuity errors or just plain flubs. I will admit – Dragon Ball GT is a guilty pleasure to me. I know it’s not as good as Dragon Ball or Dragon Ball Z, but I still find some enjoyment from it. Even if I find myself questioning some of the things that happen. So that’s what I’m gonna do. A lot of people will just say “It’s not canon. End of story.” as the excuse to why things happen in GT. While it’s not canon with the manga, it does seem to act like it’s canon with the anime. So with that, I’ll be going over all oddities and errors of GT. All 64 episodes of them. Oh boy!

Black Friday

Haven’t posted here in a while, have I? So Black Friday weekend’s come and gone. I’ve usually gone about buying one or two things during Black Friday and I thought this year would be different. How wrong I was. With money I’ve had saved over from my last job, I decided to buy, buy, buy. What’d I come out with? Well… Continue reading

Previous Flea Market Hauls

Going through my previous blog entry about my last flea market run, I thought about posting up a list of my previous finds at the flea market. Don’t have any pictures up, since everything’s all over the place, but I do remember almost everything I’ve bought along with the cost. So here we go! Continue reading

So I’m Getting a PSP

…For the third time. I have an odd history with the PSP. Every time I got one, I either got it when there was absolutely nothing out for it or when I had no money to afford any games. Now that I’ve got a steady income and some money already saved up, it’s about damn time I get a PSP and some games. Third time’s the charm? So with that, here’s a list of games I’m looking to get and have my eyes on. If you notice anything missing, feel free to hit me up with a comment here or on Twitter on what I should look into. 🙂 Continue reading

A Call to Arms

Thank you for your enthusiasm. We promised an update, so here it is. We never say “never,” but we can confirm that there are no plans to bring these three games to the Americas at this time. Thanks so much for your passion, and for being such great fans!

This is Nintendo of America’s response in regards to the public outcry towards the lack of North American releases of Xenoblade, The Last Story and Pandora’s Quest. This is nothing more than typical PR talk to neither confirm nor deny that they will not be releasing these games over. As of right now, this basically means we are not getting these three games…yet. With the Wii U still a good year away, there’s still hope of seeing these games released here. Continue reading

Where have all the RPGs gone?

What do the games in the banner above have in common? They’re all RPGs that have little to no chance of being released in North America. Now what do the platforms have in common? They have really good games that were released near the end of their life cycles that are being passed by when it comes to being released outside of Japan. Continue reading
