  1. Just finished Yakuza 0 and was blown away by it. Then immediately started Kiwami and was a bit....surprised (Majima spoilers below):
  2. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Thanks for the info man. Actually, black nova let me know that my order will be a part of the third batch as well, but unfortunately I cannot cancel. It's not too big a deal though, since these black nova guys luckily don't require up-front payment.
  3. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Welp, I splurged and grabbed the GFFMC Wing Zero at Black Nova Toys. Never used their site before, but digging around suggested it was a legitimate place, and their customer support was on point and in english. Still a pretty penny tho ($340 after shipping ). Whatever, I've dreamt of a figure like this since I was a child (Endless Waltz premiered in the U.S. when I was in 2nd grade, and the wing zero EW has always been my favorite robot from any anime. No wing zero figure really lived up to my expectations until this). We all know how much of a let down the perfect grade is/was.
  4. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Alright, I wasn't following this thread at all for the past couple days. Is there literally anywhere that I might be able to order a GFFMC Wing Zero? This is my favorite mobile suit of all time, I can't believe I missed this
  5. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Soooooo.... any news about when the GFFMC wing zero is gonna open for pre-orders? Sorry to divert convo away from the Quanta
  6. I definitely shared this opinion back when I was doing my bachelors (still have a PC), but these days, the ease of consoles and consolidation under a single network (i.e. PSN) has really made me appreciate the console experience. I also have the "Pro" PS4, which brings me close to a decent PC experience in terms of graphics. Also, I can reasonably compete with people on console with a gamepad, but people on PC with m/k are just too good for me to keep up with online multiplayer these days

    Can't wait to pay $60 for Skyrim for the fourth time
  8. Selling for credit health

    I feel this on a lot of levels. I have to take out loans > $30,000 a year just for school, and I will need to continue to do this for the next three years at least (with no income to offset this). I have cut back on collecting. However, I don't want to completely abandon what I'm interested in. My strategy is to buy a figure that I want, keep it for a few months, and then sell it to make up the cost of the next figure I'm interested in. This has kept costs low, while letting me experience a lot of different figures. I'm not particularly attached to any one item, so this is easy for me, but may be more difficult if you're interested in holding on to everything you buy.
  9. The Nintendo Switch

    Rocket League on the go is the biggest announcement for me from this E3.
  10. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    That "angel" pose just doesn't work for the Hi-Rez given how thicc its legs and hips are imo. Similar to the issues suffered by the PG. Having said that, the wings look amazing.
  11. The Nintendo Switch

    Completely off topic, but I interviewed at NYU for medical school and was staggered by how expensive everything is. I stayed in the most sketch hotel/dormitory (with four strangers sharing a room) and it was still > $100 a night. More on topic, I'd like to use my switch a bit more, but the sparsity of games got me frustrated. I had a Wii U, so a lot of the recent "new" announcements don't do anything for me. Just wish splatoon was coming out earlier in the summer.
  12. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    I think the proportions of the hi-res are just a little too strange for my tastes. Feel like the GFFMC hits the design bang on to how the wing zero was shown in endless waltz, especially with the cool wing re-design to add more feathers and articulation.
  13. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    I'm still seeing F91 MB available to "reasonable" prices on eBay and what-not. Seems like Bandai may be producing more product now? Hopefully this trend continues for Wing Zero
  14. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    That picture F360 posted looks really good, regardless of Candy finish. I am definitely in for one! Get to re-live all that Gundam Wing elementary school-era angst.
  15. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    The mold looks awesome, but I really hope they don't go the route of that super shiny candy-finish looking paint-scheme, especially since GFFMC are usually finished in matte.
