Subs win! Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble is the title

I asked some of you earlier to choose Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble over the other super-generic names to give to Atlus' new PSP game.

Some of you didn't, for various reasons. I forgive you.

But fans of having a subtitle still took victory, and by a 3-to-1 margin to boot.

Seriously though. The other English-only titles were way too generic. Unless you already knew of them beforehand or buy Atlus games on principle (even I'm not that foolish), you'd just ignore a game called Badass alone. That bit of Japanese is a good hook to tell customers that "OH HAI I'M A QUIRKY UNIQUE JAPANESE GAME", and people look for that.

To celebrate your victory, go drink milk and have sex.

Oh, while I'm getting into the groove of semi-regular posts again, I found this video. Remember the Pokemon rap? It's like that:
