So Very VERY Tired

Just an update on the status on the site. Yeah, were still doing the podcast. When we can, and god willing, you should get another one around the 15th or so. Phil's been very busy animating so it's been hard to set up a day where we can do one. And me? Well, I've been very, VERY lazy.

To fill the gap between podcasts I'm going to throw out a few ideas that Ive had for a little while and ask if you think any would be good. Would anyone out there be interested in a mini review or something with me ranting and raving for around 30 minutes every week to fill the gap between podcasts? I could also answer questions you guys submit in the comments section and e-mails so maybe I can combine the two.

If you have any questions you want answered on either the podcast or whatever the hell this Frankenstein project is that i'm working on, please, e-mail us at:, or E-mail me directly at

Phone Call From the President Mr. Wingzrow: Kid's don't let them fancy animes with their pan the character across the screen for 30 minutes and two mouth lip sync fool you. Animation is hard.

Thank you,

Episode 26: The Xavier Exploding Head

Hey it's that 90's action show with Top Cat. You know, what do you call it...Wolverine and the X-Men! Yeah that's the ticket. Also Mega Man 9, we've never talked about that right? Special guest stars "Giggle Boy" Okami and Mr.Magic. Featuring such featuric features as it's to late for me to put up this podcast, I'm more tired than a joke from Family Guy, and sleep: the equalizer.

Podcast Delay

Hey everyone. Just a little note that the podcast will now be up around sunday and monday. I have to many classes to get this out on friday. In the meantime have fun with this Rugrats pilot directed by Peter "Long Legs" Chung.

Have the Sonic the Hedgehog Pilot too while we're at it.

I'm going to be outdone so here's my contribution.

And here's Space Ghost following an ant for 10 minutes.

The title of this episode comes from the startling truth that Wingzrow and I discovered while recording this episode. If your a part of the generation that watched Rugrats, it should happen to you as well eventually. This is never mentioned in the episode however because we're reviewing Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter and Tenga Toppa Gurren Lagann.

Wingzrow Takes Issue With Kotaku

Ok, now I'm at the point where i think this is an issue that needs to be discussed. Recently Kotaku ran a story that, frankly, sickens me. They have been running stories that don't have anything to do with video games lately, and as expected from any news site, or channel, sometimes you have filler when there's a deadline or nothing important to report. Fine. But deliberately taking things out of context and besmirching the good name of a small game company, who, frankly, I'm very thankful decided to have a U.S. branch again after the bankruptcy years ago, is total BS.

Kotaku's bogus support:

This was brought to my attention by Trieu of snk-capcom

Basically kotaku is making up lies about Snk's customer support and it's blatantly obvious what's going on.

For an in depth coverage of this issue I'm linking you to what Trieu ( moderator and general manager of ) has to say on the matter.

In this episode we attempt to stir up major controversy with our fancified podcast. We review Space Ghost Coast 2 Coast and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

( fake pokemon revealed )

Well it turns out this is just some monster from duel masters, i can't read japanese so it looks like for now this story is confirmed as fake.

"The new issue of coro coro magazine has revealed one new pokemon that will premier in the future pokemon movie. This is no surprise as Munchlax and ( Bonsly? ) were revealed before diamond and pearl came out. My question is, when will this end though? Aren't there enough new pokemon? Is another pokemon game just around the corner?"

Capcom Fixing Okami Wii Box Art Mistake

For any of you who own okami for wii, take a look at it. Closer...CLOSER! There's an symbol they forgot to take out! Well, me and many other people who bought the game, or who just like to complain, made their voices heard. Capcom has responded VERY quick and the box art fix is on the way. Now you can not ONLY get the same box art again but without the ign symbol and crappy red review mark ( why do companies STILL do this? ) but you can choose from two other MUCH better game cover sleeves instead as well! I've already ordered mine, how about you?

PS: it's free

Earthworm Jim - New Game, Movie, and Series


"Following recent news that it would be bringing Earthworm Jim to Virtual Console, Interplay has announced it is partnering with franchise creator Doug TenNapel to revive the brand with a new game, cartoon and film.

No details of the new game, currently titled Earthworm Jim 4 were given, but Interplay says TenNapel -- who was also behind critical hits like The Neverhood -- will serve as a creative consultant for the game.

The company also says TenNapel will be developing a new animated series, following an earlier series that ran on The Kids WB! for two seasons, as well as a feature film.

As earlier reported, CEO Herve Caen has said Interplay is undergoing a campaign to utilize its "unique intellectual property, and low debt and operational costs" through initiatives like the Virtual Console releases to "pursue financing for our various projects," which, along with this new Earthworm Jim title, include its planned Fallout-based MMO."



Currently this is a Ps3 and Xbox 360 only release.

Living Up To Our Namesake

Seeing as we've had little discussion about the one true thing in the world, giant robots, and because we happen to be named after a little old technique from such superdeduper robots; I've decided we need a post on Animetal. What is Animetal you ask?

I often wonder why someone would call a robot Combattler V. IT'S ALREADY A GIANT ROBOT. YOU CALL IT THIS AS IF WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT DOES.

Whenever I think of Zambot, I think of Zazbot, the anime about a robot run by beatniks.

Good day to you Mazinger Z

Animetal; making giant robots even more rocking then they already are.
