#TheCool: Waste Not, Want More!

Another week down, another episode of #TheCool to encapsulate it all! It is always great to see you in my mind scape but I won't stall anymore so let us get to work.

Now before we do that I just want to take a note of something that I've noticed. The last installment of #TheCool didn't do all that fancy pimping of the content within and the numbers showed it. And then I remember why I did it. 2 of the major things I touched on last time were the passing of Robin Williams and my "I don't give a fuck about what's happening in Ferguson" stance. Now I could've easily made those focal points to garner non-essential attention but why do so? I understand that at the end of the day why this even exists. I need a place to express myself as freely as I can while not breaking laws of any kind and I feel that I do just that. It makes writing this a whole lot easier and the same stance of making videos when I want to. I don't have to be a show pony like others out there and because I have that freedom to do what I want, when I want is that I see those who've had to relegate themselves to show pony status. I never want my work to become that and I go to great strides to keep the focus and vision clear. I just want to record my life and tell my story to those open enough to hear it. I leave this work behind for my boy to know who his father is & was. I don't ever want my work to become something I do because its part of the grind of just doing it. I want to continue to enjoy what I do and never want to lose it. So thanks for continuing to support me while I tell these tales.

With that done is that as usual #DoaGHThaDOJO is always putting in that work on the internet corners and the grind is never ending! On deck for you right now...

Fighting Layer, Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes, Sengoku Basara X, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, Koihime Embu, Guilty Gear Xrd & Persona 4 The Ultimax: Ultra Suplex Hold!

Plenty there and plenty more coming so you know what to do to fuel your desire for more!

Time to get it cracking! This Week In Everything, take the stage!

We live in a world where a legitimate Pokémon fighter exists! Pokkén Fighters has been known about for a while but yesterday it became real. Lucario and Machamp are the 2 featured characters we know about at the moment. I wouldn't be surprised to see Blaziken or Pikachu seeing as any Pokémon is viable according to Harada. I will be keeping a close eye on this and when this hits arcades know that #DoaGHThaDOJO will have all the footage.

Azure Striker Gunvolt just dropped in Japan will be out Friday in MURICA! Just know for 90 days after release is if you buy the game you get Mighty Gunvolt an 8-bit adventure for free with your purchase so be sure to cop it before then or you can wait and get it separately later on.

I'm hype that one of my favorite indie games is getting a sequel in Protect Me Knight 2. I'll be honest in the fact that the only reason I bought the first one was because this is an Ancient joint which is headed up by one of the Based Gods of VGM in Yuzo Koshiro. In that I found a fun & awesome game and by CLICKING THIS for the low price of $3 can get in on some of this as well. I have no clue when 2 is coming but I'm glad it isn't to XBLIG. A great platform for what it provided but all the bullshit restrictions really kept me from buying more from it. If you see a game on XBLIG that interests you then check out the developer's website and see what other avenues you have for purchasing the game other than XBLIG seeing as you have to be online for the game to even boot. Always online didn't begin with the #XBONE! The more you know!

Speaking of indie games is that Lethal League just dropped on Steam for $13.99. Been interested in this one since I've seen it make the Giant Bomb rounds. Looks like awesome stuff. I'll have to get the rest of the crew on it. You can get yours RIGHT HERE!!

This week in Persona is huge because of Ultimax dropping in Japan so have a bunch of character features for both the Japanese & MURICAN releases featuring Shadow Labrys, Sho, Margaret, Chie, Ken and Koromaru & Labrys!

If you need a refresher course on the basics of Ultimax then these tutorials should do the trick.

Just know for the 1st week in MURICA is that Tohru & Marie will both be free to download. So make sure to download them both when they hit both XGS & PSN..

And here's the opening movie for the console version of Ultimax!

Blade Arcus from Shining is expanding the roster a bit to include Fenrir and Roselinde from Shining Blade & Melty and Isaac from Shining Hearts. This game will actually, maybe come out at some point. #DoaGHThaDOJO will be on it if that event should ever transpire.

This week in Gundam is bringing more Maxi Boost units to Full Boost via DLC with Chan Agi in the RGZ-91 Re-GZ Cagalli Yula Athha in the MBF-02+EW454F Strike Rouge Ootori & Riddhe Marcenas in the RX-0(N) Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn.

A behind the scenes look at Sunset Overdrive just for you!

OneeChambara Z2 Chaos will be out on October 30th in Japan and this trailer is all about the first-print costumes for all 4 ladies. If you're even thinking about this game at all then get those pre-orders in now. The past has shown that getting a hand on a first-print copy with DLC like this becomes harder to come by after release so be sure to keep that in mind.

What have I been up to this week?

I copped Super Time Force Ultra and haven't played it yet because I've been too busy to do so.

I played Rockman: Power Battle Fighters on PS2 for future research purposes.

I've been peeking into the Every Simpsons Ever marathon and remembering old episodes I used to watch back in the day on Channel 30. Memories and such.

I watched the Kamen Rider Wars movie and it did its job for being the annual SHT movie and some crazy Faiz closure for whatever reason.

I watched the newest installment of History of Power Rangers all about Operation Overdrive. All it did was remind me how forgettable that season was outside of Once a Ranger. You can watch Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 & Part 4 and hear Linkara's take on it all.

I got back into Freezing and now I know how to stay there. Put on podcast, go read Freezing, ?????, PROFIT! Can't lose with steps like that! With Naruto & Bleach ending soon is that I'll have to turn my attention to it and Akame ga Kill to fill in those gaps. I could finally get into One Piece which may be what actually happens but we'll see.

Final thoughts on True Blood. It ended. That is what happened. It ended. With not a bang or a whimper. It just ended.

Book 3 of Korra is done and that actually entertained me. Book 4 is going to be nuts and so is the game as you'll see in a bit.

The other usual suspects did work with Gaim in the final sprint to the end and I have no idea how you get this cleanly done in 5 episodes and make it meaningful but this show can do it and I'll afford it every chance to do just that. Dallas also went ham doing what they do as well. Ray Donovan is still off the meat rack as it were. Naruto & Bleach are on hiatus and ToQger was there too.

Let's bring it home! What I Watched On The Internet This Week you're ready to launch!

There was DBZ Abridged 43,

The Season 1 finale of Pokémon 'Bridged

& the premiere of TOME Season 2!

I can appreciate a good On Crack vid. This one is all Teen Titans & Young Justice.

IGN with the humongous blowout of Korra stuff. A look the game's Pro Bending mode, a talk with the creators about Book 3 and 4 & Shipping 101 starring David Faustino & Janet Varney. A must watch for any fan of the show.

I ran into this awesome animation called Kung-Fu Cooking Girls by Wolf Smoke who also did Batman of Shanghai. This is just too cool so watch it and Batman of Shanghai as a bonus from me to you!

And all the botches you can handle with Botchamania 256 & DelRioMania dedicated to the pimp slap master, Alberto Del Rio!

That shall be that!

Happy Anniversary KoF! 20 Years in the game and hopefully many more to come! Pop some bottles with the Princesses of Punch and get your celebration on! How will I mark this occasion? Just wait and see!

Thanks for kicking it with us for another installment of #TheCool! We'll be back to do this again sometime! Please come back and join us when that time arrives!

Same #TheCool time! Same #TheCool channel!

#TheCool: Hello, Goodbye, Worst Behavior!

#TheCool's back & better than ever seeing as we never left but took a tactical break to get back to normal working capacity! I was actually considering putting out a skeleton installment just to not miss a week but my whole thing about quality and not having enough content to in my mind put together an installment of #TheCool. Because I waited on things is before we can even get to business at hand is we have to get to the business at hand.

I'm not a fan we have to start here but while I was away is that the world lost Robin Williams. A man that many admired & respected and I being one of those people. Entertained me for years and his energy will be missed.

Then I found out that same day that an awesome GAFfer named Hitokage left us too.

Just a cool dude and all these years I never knew how instrumental he was in the history of GAF. He was just an awesome dude all around and I'll miss his energy as well.

I guess this is where I'd talk about Ferguson seeing as this is happening in my hood but I have no comment, no feelings about the situation, nothing at all. Shit happens everyday. It isn't that shit happens but how you deal with the shit that happened is what truly matters. You guys know what's happening out there and I need say no more. Just keep that shit from me & mine and do whatever you want!

Now that we've taken care of that business let us move to something a lot more positive! When I got back to full power is that not soon after this happened...

#DoaGHThaDOJO hit that 1000+ subscriber milestone and I couldn't be prouder. #DoaGHThaDOJO is all about keeping the balance and I take that seriously. And it just so happened that I got a chance on GAF to express my thoughts and you can read it for yourself below.

"Bots have feelings too in most cases. This so being one of those cases.

I could easily say what you just did about everybody else on that's on the same hustle including some of those who do their business where you frequent.

However, it didn't start with me and nor will it end that way but being that one who picked that torch up so long ago, is still carrying it to this day, being leagues above "my competition" and giving a host of fighting games attention that wouldn't otherwise see it is hard fucking work!

The dichotomy of who & why has changed a whole lot since when it was a whole lot harder to view videos from Nico and wasn't the in vogue thing to do. It used to be a select few who provided that service for the sake of providing the service. The majority of those who do now either focus in on a certain game or games by a certain developer. Me, I've probably provided footage for damn near any fighting game you could name since 2007.

I do what it is I do because somebody has to be the other side of the balance and I don't mind it at all. When I see a reason to no longer provide the service I do then I'll stop but as long as the community needs the balance that the service I deliver provides it then I'll keep doing it.

My responsibility is to preserve history & be its voice and I take what I do very seriously! But that flows into every single thing I do.

Thanks for noticing that I do something. It's appreciated."

It was a misunderstanding how the above statement was expressed but I mean every word of it! Expect a lot more in the future and no matter where you stand on the fence, THANKS SO MUCH! TO THE FUTURE!

Earlier this morning though...

FIVE THOUSAND PLUS SUBSCRIBERS ON THE MAIN CHANNEL BABY!!! I stayed F5'ing the page all night when I was close and now that I'm over the hump is that its back to work as usual. When I'll be back to that type of work will happen when it happens. Stay tuned!

#DoaGHThaDOJO has been playing catch up hard & we're all caught up now so there's a lot for you and on deck right now...

Koihime Embu, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Guilty Gear Xrd, Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes, Senko no Ronde: Dis-United Order, Daemon Bride Additional Gain, Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code & Project Justice!

Plenty on deck and plenty more coming so be sure to stay tuned!

With that being taken care of is that its time for The Last 14 Days In Every Thing! Do your stuff!

SUPER TIME FORCE ULTRA IS COMING TO STEAM ON THE 25TH! This would seem to be the definitive version of the game so I'll be keeping an eye on it.

This week in Hyrule Warriors brings us a look at the Adventure Mode intro, Ganondorf's costumes, Zant & Ghiranim!

Here's your Mortal Kombat X fix which contains a look at Raiden & Kano! HELLO BAEBEE!! References to stuff!

This week in Persona brings us some character features with Mitsuru, Yosuke, Yu, Yukiko & a look at the Lobby system for the console release next week in Japan.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is coming to PS3 & Vita this November and you might want to be prepared to import because of all the licenses involved. But I'll see what SEGA does before pulling any pre-order triggers.

The "vampire" Raphael Sorel has joined the roster of Soul Calibur Lost Swords. Figured you might want to know.

Kamen Rider, Gundam & Ultraman are on the team up tip once again in Super Hero Generations. This reminded me that I never got around to Super Heroine Chronicle. I should correct that.

You want maids? Doa5U's got all the maids! DLC should be out by time you read this.

Highschool DxD has a new game coming soon to Vita. That's all.

With that forced time off I was able to get a lot done. Not the things that should've been done in my view. I didn't record a single episode of Super Metroid but that was because I was focused on other things and y'all know how I feel about bringing the best product to you. Most of my time was digging through my show and movie backlog during the TDW and I watched all those side Garo movies. The whole 1st season of Gravity Falls in 1 day. And even through all of that I did get into a couple of games like Shovel Knight & Aces Wild on PC, Final Fight Revenge & Rabbit on the Saturn & Crisis Beat on PS1 because I'm looking at those games for possible future projects so be sure to stay tuned for those when they happen.

Then I was able to get back to full working capacity and that's when the fun began. I had to gather everything that I missed from the usual suspects and watched all of that and they're doing what it does with Gaim, Korra, True Blood & Ray Donovan doing what they usually do. And I caught of Bunny Must Die on a Steam sale just on whim and I'm loving it so be sure to give it a shot. I'm looking at Amazing Princess Sarah since it just dropped on Steam today as well and I might get that too just because or I might download the demo off of XBLIG and give it a shot first before a payment commitment is made.

SummerSlam was watched. Stephanie looked sexy as fuck and Brock killed Cena! 3 cheers for both! 3 cheers for both!

In other news, Bully put Dixie through a table and nobody cared. A wasted table.

Of course we weren't going to close out this portion without the reminder that Dallas is back for the 2nd half of Season 3 and shit got nuts off the bat. I'm ready for whatever the show's gonna bring for the rest of the season.

Something, something about Nurse Me & Futa Club was uttered somewhere. You're on your own there.

Time to bring this one to a close! What I Watched On The Internet When I Had A Connection To Said Internet!

Believe it or not, this is a real thing. A real thing. In real life. Why? Funny as hell though.

In this episode of something, Mario takes the karting a bit to seriously.

qzecwx plays a Rockman 4 hack. This isn't anything new but I enjoy watching things I'll never play. I want to play Minus Infinity though. That hack always looked like one I need to play.

In another example of fans do what developers won't is somebody has gone to great lengths to HD Sexify Shenmue.

In another example of WTF Konami, this was a remake of the original Metal Gear for MSX that Konami approved before changing their damn minds. Just WTF Konami?

In a double shot of Skullgirls is that the game finally gets a Did You Know Gaming vid & the Voice Actresses of Skullgirls take on Filia's story mode. Enjoy that!

That shall be that!

Back to full power and it feels so good! Stay tuned! You never know what's coming!

We'll be doing this again real soon, so come on back now you hear!

#TheCool: Technical Difficulties 4 Only $9.99

#TheCool's here & while not at full power is that a blog has to be delivered to you and we make sure to deliver no matter what it takes!

I've however continued to failed to deliver Super Metroid to you and I'm not a fan of it at all. It'll come when the universe deems it so.

Given even that is #DoaGHThaDOJO's always serving that crack regardless and here's what's on deck right now...

Guilty Gear Xrd, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, Chaos Breaker, En Eins Perfektwelt, Akatsuki Blitzkampf Ausf.Achse, Aquapazza: Aquaplus Dream Match, Koihime Embu, Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Cross Generation of Heroes, Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe, Project Justice & Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code V1.07!

With all of that out the way that its time for This Week In Everything! Do your thing like only you can!

It has been a wild week in the world of Hyrule Warriors because of all the info that we've learned about the title. The Nintendo Direct was a major source of information by really showing how the game is a amalgamation of Zelda & the Warriors series and confirming a lot of new characters & weapons that you can see in the trailers above that include new confirmations of Sheik, Ganondorf, Zant & Ghirahim as playable characters. The game drops in MURICA on September 26th.

The console version of Ultra is available now and while it comes with all the previous costumes as part of the package is the Summer Vacation costumes will be available next week and some of those costumes are great especially Poison, Guile & Gief for their special reasons. No price point known at this time but they'll be out next week on the 12th.

Speaking of fighters is that French-Bread finally put out the Nanase & Byakuya tutorial videos and they're included in the other ones in the playlist above. Be sure to make use of them.

I never thought I would type "This Week In Digimon" on this blog but here we are. This week in Digimon brings us not only a new Cyber Sleuth trailer but the announcement of Digimon: All-Star Rumble coming on November 14 (Insert Smash Mouth reference here). And on top of that in unrelated gaming news is that there's going to be a new installment of Digimon Adventure that follows a 17 year-old Tai but how this actually flows into what has been established by canon is unknown. Hype as fuck though!

This week in Persona brings us some Ultimax character features starring Akihiko & Aegis!

This week in Gundam is bringing a whole bunch to the table. New DLC for Full Boost should already be out at the moment with Chang Wufei in the Altron, Garrod Ran and Tiffa Adill in the Gundam X & Rondo Mina Sahaku in the MBF-P01-Re2AMATU Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu Mina Custom.

And not to leave Maxi Boost in the dust is Chan Agi in RGZ-91 RE-GZ,

Riddhe Marcenas in RX-0(N) Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn,

and Cagalli Yula Athha in the MBF-02+BEW454F Strike Rouge Ootori! Plenty of Gundam action somewhere out there.

Speaking of Gundam is that the Rise of Incarnates Beta will be this weekend starting on the 8th. Be sure to check out the site for more information about the beta HERE!

There's a big update for Chrono Phantasma coming that will add Celica & Lambda-11 that will be in arcades soon.

The sequel I know I wanted and so did you with OneeChambara Z2 Chaos coming to the PS4 later this year. Kagura, Saaya, Aya & Saki are all here for the sequel and its going to be good. Might be my reasoning to get a PS4!

And of course there's a new Bullet Girls trailer. Just watch it because who really cares what it is actually about?

I really didn't get into much gaming wise other than trying to get back into Robotrek after reading the HG101 article about it because I think I might have rented the game when I was younger. So if I actually make any headway with it I'll be sure to let you know.

Because I'm on Technical Difficulty Watch is that I actually got a chance to watch stuff. I finally finished Garo: Makai Senki and for a show that I thought I had figured out really turned the tables on me plot wise near the end and I satisfied for my time spent. I plan to watch all the side movies and get into Yami o Terasu Mono & Makai no Hana after that.

I also watched Justice League: Doom & Flashpoint Paradox and they were both awesome condensed versions of the comic arcs. You'll always get the full feel from reading them but those movies get the main point across wonderfully well. I got War, Son of Batman & Assault on Arkham on deck and I'll be getting into those soon as well.

The usual suspects did work except for Gaim & ToQger which are on break this week. The countdown for the return of the 2nd half of Season 3 of Dallas is approaching now that I think about it and I'm hyped for that come back. Bleach & Naruto are delivering the goods on the manga front with Naruto leaving me more questions than answers but that's the norm.

And with that out the way is time to wrap it up with What I Watched On The Internet This Week! Bring it to the climax!

Version 1.2.0 of Mega Man Unlimited is available and adds a bunch of new stuff. Download it HERE and find out what's new!

The World Record for Ocarina of Time is 18:10 by Cosmo. Hear how such a feat is accomplished!

I may be responsible for the existence of this video. Hear Kirbopher talk about Super Dragon Ball Z just because!

Fluffle Puff & friends are back in a House M.D. Parody. That's the premise. Just watch it!

This is a clue to the future. The future. The future.

I'm over a month late on this but here's the Egoraptor's 2nd Zelda installment of Sequelitis featuring Link to the Past & Ocarina of Time.

That shall be that!


This Kokonoe pic is a throwback but I now christen it the Technical Difficulty Watch picture. So if you see this pic on an installment of #TheCool then you know what time it is!

Because we're on Technical Difficulty Watch is that I have no idea when anything will be updated or how long the TDW will be in effect. I'll try my best to get what I can done the best way I can until we're back to full capacity. So whenever it comes, just be ready!

Same #TheCool time! Same #TheCool channel!
