JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle

JoJo's All Star Battle gets a release date, fab box art

And an equally fab limited edition box

Fans of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, CyberConnect2, or crazy 3D anime fighting games can all start marking their calendars now, because Namco Bandai has confirmed an August 29th release date for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle. That's roughly six and a half months from now, and five-odd months from the release of another CyberConnect2-developed crazy 3D anime fighter, Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Really tearing it up in that department, aren't they?

The game's also getting a spiffy collector's edition, too. Called the "Gold Experience Box", the limited edition will come with a special box, a figure of protagonist Jotaro Kujo and his Stand, Star Platinum, a "Golden art plate" with an illustration of Giorno Giovanna and his Stand Gold Experience, drawn by original artist Hirohiko Araki, a soundtrack CD, notepad, and a download code for an extra playable character, Yoshikage Kira. A lot of stuff, you might think, but the price could probably buy some gold on its own: ¥16,980 ($182). 

So far all of this is announced just for Japan, but given how pretty the game is in the assorted screens and trailers released (a few are below, along with sweet box art), I'd be hard-pressed to believe that All Star Battle won't cross the pond at some point.

I spent all last night playing Day of Defeat: Source. If only Valve gave it even half the attention it did to TF2 or CS:S...

Toonami is running a poll right now at [url]www.toonami.com/poll[/url] where one of the questions is which show you'd want un-cancelled. Oh, Teen Titans is included? That's curious...

"The Ravagers dropped the giant insects and waited for them to evolve ... it's clear. This is their plan from the start" -EDF 4.1 scientist So dragons are evolved forms of ants, spiders and/or wasps ....... what?

Every time I hear "I don't understand why people like _____ game", I get annoyed. Of course you understand, if you've listened to what those people were saying. You just don't agree, and that's A-OK. I HATE Twilight, but I understand why people like it.

Just tried playing the first Bayonetta game... it was really bad. Honestly I don't understand why Platinum games are so well regarded. None of them are really worthwhile.

I doubt I'll use it much but I'm totally fine with a block/ignore feature. Everyone has a right to speak, but I don't think anyone has a right to be heard. If this place played country music I'd want a mute button, basically :p.

Mall haul today (plus I split a BEAUTIFUL Star Wars Slave I with my brother). Any thoughts on Haze? Wanted to play it back when it came out and I had no PS3. For a dollar you can't go wrong!

I'm not gonna lie, I don't feel "good" about the upcoming "ignore" feature. Maybe it's just me, but I don't like the idea that people can mute other people because they don't agree with them. Spammers and trolls, sure, but not regular community members.

Wow, uh, after having a lovely time with Kirby Air Ride, I decided to try playing some melee, for old times sake... I pretty much disliked my whole time with it. More details in a comment if I get around to it.

The backend code on the site so fun to read. Going through some of Julio's old stuff: if($vars["fappers"]){ $fappoids = 0; $_xt_loop_name = "fappers"; $vars["fappers_cnt"] = count($vars["fappers"]); reset($vars["fappers"]);
