I keep feeling like I say every week is a big week. But it is, all sorts of crazy stuff happens! This week we've dealt with all this Imagi shutdown stuff, the Lupin vs Conan special, VIZ's new Haikasoru line, Final Fantasy XIII's new trailer, and TOKYOPOP's title cancellations (which turned out to be postponements), and then Bandai's indefinite delays...


And DON'T forget to let me know what you want me to ask at NYCC! (Comic Vine and Giant Bomb users, feel free to make your requests as well-- I can't promise anything, but I'll always do my best!)

  • Are you looking forward to the game Batman: Arkham Asylum? Me too.
  • The RZA, who did the music for Afro Samurai (the anime and the game), talks about how cool the game is.
  • Aaaand of course, the Bombers are drooling over Final Fantasy XIII too.

Giant bomb is Yuffie. Wow!

That RZA video sums up the game, pretty well :)
