A week in links (Happy Boxing Day version)

Happy Holidays everyone!  Hope everyone out there is having (or had) a wonderful white Christmas. 

Me, not so much.  I wish I could say I've been having a good time, but it's not everything I had expected.  Somehow things that I thought were going to happen didn't.  Usually when things sound too good to be true, it most likely isn't good at all.  Funny how that picture from Thursday is so relevant to this post.

Some good news did happen though — I got a job offer from a website as a video game writer.  Pretty simple gig, since it's basically the same thing as what I do here (lol).  Will it take away time from this blog?  Probably, but the good side of it is that I get to speak my mind a lot easier here then over there.

At any rate, Happy Boxing day!  Be careful out there; the weather's a bit nuts all over the place…

Seth: No guard crush, but SSF4 will be more offensive : News : EventHubs.com
Looks like Super Street Fighter IV might be getting a guard meter.  Only time will tell how it turns out for gameplay, but if it takes the turtling mechanic out of this game, I might jump back in it again.

2009's Top-Selling Blu-ray Discs in Japan (Overall) – Anime News Network
I've always wondered how well Blu-ray discs did in Japan.  Now I know that they're not doing well at all.  Just look at those prices…ouch.

2009's Top-Selling DVDs in Japan (Overall) – Anime News Network

DVD sales aren't that much better.  Can you imagine how much more they'd make if they actually reduce the prices and threw in more content?

Reality Manga 4 – Worth1000 Contests

Was done before, but worth putting it out there again.  Real life pictures photoshopped to look like anime style = creepy.
