Randomly, next week's episode of Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood will be the Hughes episode. You know, that one. I suppose it'll be just like episode 25 in the last series, but damn, isn't this new series quick? Now Brotherhood ep.10 = FMA ep.25. Were all of those other episodes just fillers? Props to the original writers for that, because I was entertained by those fillers...

Also, the new 逆転検事 (Gyakuten Kenji = Perfect Prosecutor) game...I am again entertained. I don't know if I can make it past the first case without better Japanese skills (OMG lawyer!Japanese is not fun), but I am having fun playing it. The new Logic system will take a bit of time to get used to, especially since you have to connect two things as well. If you see red footprints and then find bloody shoes, you have to connect them. This is an easy example, but I figure it'll get harder as we move up in the cases. I'm still in the investigation stage now, because I can't move on without connecting all the Logic elements. While I understand about 75% of what I read, putting it together in a logic-based game reduces me to about 50% understanding. However, I don't want to play too much, since I'll be buying the game when it's released in English (that's why it's on my R4 card now). Has a release date been set?

I tried to get the new Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 game for my R4 as well, but it won't load past the start screen. Anyone have a version that works? I'm really excited about this game too, and I've already got it pre-ordered for it's English release in September. I know I'm skirting the lines of legality, but I don't want to buy a Japanese game when I know I'll buy the English version later. I mean, the Japanese version will be immediately forgotten once I have the English, so I don't want to pay for two versions. I do this with books, as I see it as practice, but games are a bit more expensive. I might do it for KH 358/2 if I can't find a version that works though. I think the KH franchise is brilliant and playing the games reduces me to a puddle of gooey happy. Also, I didn't know that the Chain of Memories PS2 version had already been released in English. I have it in Japanese (on sale at Book-Off, else I would have waited), but I rather enjoy Haley Joel Osmond for some reason. I don't know if I want to deal with that card system though; foolish idea, that damn card system...

Right, bed. I hate how having a nap throws me off my sleep cycle. Granted, I didn't need to be in bed for four hours, but that bed was sooooo comfortable, and I was soooooo tired.

That's weird - there's no English in Gyakuten Kenji like the previous PW games?

It's just like Apollo Justice; since it was released on the DS first, it's only in Japanese. The other games were re-released for the DS after originally coming out on the GBA, so Capcom just stuck the English version on there (why, I don't know, since the Japanese audience wasn't after it in English).

So yeah, I gotta wait for the English version. At least I know it won't disappoint like AJ kinda did!

Oh, and what school do you work at again? I is on the job hunt. :D

I get my Roms from here. I've d/led KH 258/2 Days, but I can't find my micro USB stick for the life of me, so I can't play it yet. However, I've never had any issues with Roms from this site!

Strangely enough, this rom stopped after I chose my difficulty level too. I wonder if something is wrong with my DS? Loading until the start menu sounds weird though...

Hmm, borrowed a USB stick from a friend so that I could load the game on too. I'm also having the same problem.... Because it's new, maybe they've found a way to get around the R4 thing? My R4 is kind of old compared to other similar products out now. Hmm.

Yeah, I got my R4 around September last year, but I totally have the old fatboy DS. Just strange that we can even get to the load screen...

I got my Fukushima friend's info, so what is your e-mail addy again?

Very Odd. Well, if I ever find a working version, I shall send you the link! ^^

My address is: abasra(@)uwo(.)ca

Thanks so much! I am so curious as to who I will be working with/who my predecessor is/what Iwaki and Fukushima are like!

I'm sad that you won't be staying with JET. But, if you stick around in Japan, I would definitely love to meet up with you again... and perhaps under more definite plans; I'm kind of one of those people who doesn't do well with things on the fly.

Reading about the new PW has me so excited even though it's not coming out in North America for quite a while.

Whoa, Gyakuten Kenji is already out? MUST HAVE!! Not sure if I'm going to resort to playing it in Japanese, but it's tempting. I'm also really interested in 358/2. Might just have to try out that R4 thingamajig. XD
