Do you hear that? It’s the echo of the market crash that almost killed gaming back when everyone and their dog was making shitty Atari games and they buried tens of thousands of copies of ET in mass graves.

Somehow I don’t think what this generation needs is 10 consoles to choose from. [conspiracy theory]Maybe it’s a false flag operation from PC giants like Valve and nVidia to devalue the console market, crash it, and pull people back into PC gaming so instead of needing a new GPU every 8-12 years, they start needing one every 3 years again… [/conspiracy theory]

    To clarify… The no. 1 seller isn’t the only success in the console wars. For instance, the DS and PSP were both successful, viable, profitable systems even if the DS won out for total sales (when I last saw…) However, making the big assumption that all these new Android consoles actually draw enough of the market to them, there’s a theoretical point where instead of a million consoles sold by each company (just a sample, not total sales lol), there’s 100k here, 100k there, maybe 50k for …

    I’ve been into anime for long enough to realize an important thing: Most of the shows that really deserve to have a sequel, should never get one. That’s right. What makes you think the sequel will be just as good? Does anyone remember the 90s “-ash” rehash wave? Bubblegum Crash, Dirty Pair Flash, Nuku Nuku Dash, Macross 7 Trash… No, thanks. Keep them.

    There’s good stuff in any era. Higurashi, lots of SHAFT stuff, even weird fanservice shows like Monster Musume, as long as they’re original. But yeah, most of this is obscure to me too and I watch a fair bit of anime… I just have a massive cache of older stuff to catch up on while more and more hits the market.

    Searched おじモン on Canadian Apple store… found. Confirmed it’s available outside Japan.

    Do you know the eyeglass market in Japan? (I don’t…) It could just be that they’re not under the thumb of the Luxottica price fixing cartel over there. I order prescription eyeglasses from the USA (via China I suspect) for $10-20 sometimes and they work great. With modern tech there’s no good excuse for glasses costing upward of $100 unless they’re crafted as fine jewelry.

    “Circle lenses” – they make your irises look bigger, so if you open your eyes wide, you can get a “cute, anime look.” …in theory.
