@takashichea: Oh I wasn't a social butterfly or anything. I only knew a few people well enough to be comfortable with them in person almost right away. I was still going to panels, seeing games, ect. The hardest part of the trip was balancing everything out. Time with new friends, at panels, exploring Boston, seeing games, and any other random activities that crop up is difficult. I missed out on a few things I wanted to see or do but that happens. As long as your enjoy yourself, even if it's work, that's all that really matters.

@takashichea: A lot of what I did was just hang out with people I had only really known from the internet. Boston was a great town to visit with little prior knowledge since it had great public transit and you could walk to most places if you wanted to.

I'd say the best moment was the Giant Bomb panel. It was great to see those guys live and to see the absolute insanity that happened at the end of that panel. Meeting, or at least saying hi to, all of those guys made my trip. That and seeing and playing a lot of new games was pretty awesome. Talking with those who make the games was refreshing. It's nice to hear real passion and excitement about a game.

If you can make it to the Boston, Seattle, or the new San Antonio one you should. Give yourself some time to explore the city, stay near the convention, and just enjoy yourself. It's worth going to at least once.

@takashichea: Naw, I never wrote it up. I thought about it but after a few weeks time I just didn't know what I would say. I had a lot of fun will definitely attend another one at some point. Really it just made me want to travel more in general and PAX gives me a good excuse to do that.

Yeah I used to collect Pokemon action figures (some of which are sitting in my closet right now) and if those could have also been video game interactive I'd have lost my mind as a kid.

@finaldasa:

What's a NFC? I looked it up, but I'm still puzzled on what it does.

Near Field Communication. If you've seen Skylanders or Disney Infinity, those products use NFC technology. Basically the toys have chips inside them which can communicate with whatever they sit upon (for Skylanders and Infinity they sell the portal to sit toys on). These chips can store data so the physical toys level up in the game and can store other information.

Basically it means you can collect real toys and have them be a part of your game. Perfect for a company that is loaded with memorable and iconic characters.

To continue the Nintendo talk I'm really interested in the NFC stuff they announce (and a rumor I saw on Twitter a bit ago saying it will be in with Smash Bros. somehow).

There has always been some light speculation that a Skylanders type game from Nintendo would rake in the $$ for them. I know I certainly would throw down some dollars just to have some of those figurines. I've come close to doing it with Disney Infinity but with Nintendo there would be little hesitation.

Could you imagine collecting all the pokemon in physical form?! I WANT.

Bug Reporting » opening/editing pages

Just to give you guys a heads up the problem has been reported and probably being worked on.

As of right now all seems to be working fine for me as well.

Editing & Tools » What Counts as Anime and Manga in the Wiki

It's a tough call since anime or manga influence isn't always apparent or obvious in every show.

You can either have a strict policy, only allowing specific shows that have specific and broad influences from anime or manga. Or you have an open policy and allow pretty much anything with a slight influence.

I'm very biased when I say feel free to come over to Screened and edit the pages that don't fit here on AnimeVice.

Pokémon » Pokémon Trading Card Game Club

@Acura_Max: I think they're are one or two, I'd have to go back through them, but I was disappointed in how they played. Shouldn't those decks at least be competitive? Not tournament worthy but enjoyable at least!

@Daniel_Newton: I did that with the first few decks and slowly have been working my way through the rest. Do you know if quick play, which pits you against a random computer opponent with a random pre-made deck, earns you points towards those totals?

Pokémon » Pokémon Trading Card Game Club

@Daniel_Newton: Fast Daze and Boundaries Crossed. They do have nice cards in them but nothing like the themed decks included in the game.

I mainly only play single player. Online play seems to take forever (can't tell if it's connection speed or player speed) and every other deck seems overly stacked with powerful cards I don't have access too.

@Daniel_Newton: Thanks! I actually like the new update, though some small bugs still persist.

I also bought real cards and turns out the decks I got were HORRIBLE.

So I've been playing a bit!

I really like it and if they'd let me I would have totally spent money on this by now.

Just Manga » How many manga books do you own?

Very few. I have some books of a series or 2 I started but never finished. Maybe about 10?

Often times I borrow them from someone who has a series I want to read rather than buy them myself.

I already own too many books anyways, adding Manga to it would make it way to unmanageable.

Mobile Suit Gundam » Essential Gundam Shows?

@Daniel_Newton: MUST WATCH.

@DocHaus: 08th is the Gundam show that got me to really like everything Gundam. I really liked the side story style, only a handful of episodes but it was a well thought our and told story.

@sickVisionz: I just started 00, and I really liked the first episode. The animation is crisp and clean and after watching so much Wing it really looks good.

Mobile Suit Gundam » Essential Gundam Shows?

@Daniel_Newton: I would watch that only if I was assured one of the Gundams either looked like a unicorn or was all rainbow colors.

@Dream: Thanks! I've been trying to look for the original one to watch through but those look awesome too!

@buhssuht: Thanks!

Mobile Suit Gundam » Essential Gundam Shows?

I've recently started watching my way through Gundam Wing a show I didn't watch much back when it was on Toonami but always enjoyed when I did catch it.

I don't want Wing to be the end of the line however and was wondering which series I should watch to help dive deeper into the Gundam Universe.

Most of the series I have seen bits of but never really watched all of, so any suggestion would help!

Battles » Kid buu vs Baby Vegeta

@Sonata: Yep. Majuub was about Goku's level before he turned SS4.

Battles » Naruto vs Master Roshi

Naruto would win.

After a heated and close battle Roshi would gain the upper hand until Naruto used his 'sexy technique'. Roshi would nearly faint with a nose bleed and give in.
