#TheCool: Destruction Closet! Heaven Or Hell?

#TheCool's ready to do work! The work that needs to be done! The important work the streets needs to be done! Anyway as we get started into another installment is that there's a celebration and we'll use PT show love to it.

5 years ago I started #DiaryofaGameWhore and this video celebrates that and puts those first videos under heavy dichotomy and I use that information I gained from it to blaze the path forward. I'd like to thank everybody who've been on this ride with me and continue to support and show love! More's coming! Sooner than you think! Next up is something 5 years in the making! Stay tuned.

Speaking of is as usual #DoaGHThaDOJO is providing that crack.

Of course on show is Guilty Gear Xrd out in arcades now and there's plenty to be seen so be sure to check it out ASAP. What else is on deck right now?

Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code V1.07, Persona 4 The Ultimax: Ultra Suplex Hold, Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late & Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX!!!!!

Plenty available and plenty coming. A special drop is planned so as usual please stay tuned!

With that out of the way it's time for This Week In Gaming!

Strider dropped this week. I downloaded it but haven't played it yet. I've seen a lot of gameplay but nothing that really makes me want to play it ASAP. It does seem like a game I'd be into however. The feeling will come and I'll see how long I can stretch it.

Earth Defense Force 2025 also dropped this week and I haven't bought yet. Need to. Really need to. Just have to. Game is still that EDF goodness I've come to love! You might want to check it out though.

The countdown to X & X-2 HD is beginning. This trailer just reminds everybody that all the International & Last Mission content will be fully localized. I just want more YRP! I'll probably never touch X again seeing as I did damn near everything in X including accidentally making a Kimahri a horrible Black Mage via the Sphere Grid. It was sad. Very much so. But I can't wait to play X-2 again which still stands as one of my favorite RPGs. #TeamRikku

The countdown stride continues with Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. It actually drops the same day that X & X-2 HD. So I'll be copping them both and trying to get into Yaiba while I'm feeling it. Can't wait for this either.

The Profound Happiness continues with more Sengoku Basara 4. This week we look at some solo combos and Hideyoshi & Hanbei have a grand old time putting in work!

Staying on the Capcom tip for a second with a showcase of Hugo in Ultra SF4! This isn't Poison so not paying not much attention to this one. Hugo gonna Hugo!

Another week, another Persona Q showcase. This week both casts take the stage even featuring some characters who haven't had showcase trailers yet. We did get a release date of June 5th in Japan so now to wait for it to come to MURICA!

Lots of J-Stars Victory VS to get hype for. We got more confirms for more of the playable cast including Hiei, Ace, Bo-Bobo & Arale.

Also more character spotlight trailers went up for Kuro-sensei, Gon, Bo-bobo & Luckyman so you can learn more about what they do in battle. HYPE!!!

Kamen Rider Battride War 2!! I did notice Jumbo Formation Complete Form Decade in the trailer so they're looking to really tap the movies for new content and of course some Gaim stuff as well. Should be interesting to see what content they pull outside of Movie Final Forms and such. Game drops on JUNE 26TH! Interesting.

I didn't really get into anything major gaming wise but I'm prepping some work so I played for the sake of work so there's that. Planned stuff as usual. We'll see.

As usual everything I watched and read went in. I will take some time to talk about Elimination Chamber seeing as The Wyatts took on The Shield and without spoiling anything is that it delivered on a match that I was pretty hype for. Everything else is slowly setting the stage for Wrestlemania including the return of Hulk Hogan who'll be the host at WMXXX. I'll be watching intently to see how the road finally ends.

All of the usual suspects are doing their work but the spotlight this week is on True Detective. This show has turned a corner in the last 2 episodes so if this isn't on your radar then it may be time to get it on there then. Just a friendly suggestion.

Kill la Kill still going nuts. Gaim is doing Gaim. ToQger is all over the track. Purpose pun. Super Megaforce is still tolerable. House of Lies is doing what its doing. Congrats on getting another season by the by. Space Dandy is still dandy, baby! Bleach & Naruto holding down the manga front as they should. The rest of the usual suspects will be back this week because the Winter Olympics are over. And during it an announcement about a new Heroes series. No clue what it means but we shall see. Whatever it is.

Time to bring it on home! What I Watched On YouTube This Week! You're on deck!

A double shot of the legendary one, Chad Warden! Or Chad Daddy! Or C-Wizzy! He goes by many different names. King of remixes and forever trolling! BALLIN!!! BALLIN!!!

Donkey Kong Country. The Trilogy. Corrupted. Yep!

Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Ryu goes to the the tournament's HR office to discuss the pronunciation of the Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku. This is seriously the premise of the video. No bullshit. Funny as hell though.

Kimi Sparkle's back and she has a bone to pick. That hate is strong. But I respect it.

There's Fluffy Puff. There's Chryssi. There's a van. There will be shipping. And the van will be driven into someone's heart. Shit's real now homie!

Shouts to Scoops on getting that Speedlunky achievement. I really want to get into Spelunky so bad. Enjoy watching it. Just don't have the urge to play it. At least not yet anyway.

Lowest possible score in Super Mario Brothers 1 is 500 points. This video proves that. I'll let it do the talking.

That's that. I-no gets the cover because there's no Jam or Bridget. Law of something.

As usual plans are planned. I can safely say they'll be executed in a timely manner. Stay tuned. Learn to listen when I say that.

We'll be back to this some point. Same #TheCool time! Same #TheCool channel!

#TheCool: Bloody Heart Punch-Out!! Imagination Hype Train!

#TheCool. Circa some point in time. Here every week to do what it is we do. And this is no different except before we get into the business is that I forgot to let you know to read something in the previous installment. Street Fighter 2: An Oral History is a comprehensive piece all about one of gaming's most important moments in time. So go ahead and read it now if you haven't. Come back when you're done. We'll be waiting. CLICK HERE!!!

Continue on reading #TheCool as normal if you already have done so.

And if you just ignored what I said then start over and do it right!

I told you we'd still be here after you got done. Hope you've learned something new. Street Fighter EX4 will come one day before its all said and done. Hope. I have plenty to spare!

Speaking on what we have, is as usual #DoaGHThaDOJO is supping that crack to the masses and it never changes that the heat stays coming! On deck right now...

Street Fighter EX2 Plus, Chaos Code: New Sign of Catastrophe, Persona 4 The Ultimax: Ultra Suplex Hold, Buriki One, Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Taisen, Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code V1.07, Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late, Kinnikuman Muscle Gran Prix 2, BattleFantasia & The Rumble Fish 2!

Plenty now and plenty coming! You never know what'll show up over there. Staying tuned is something you should already be doing. If this isn't you then time to change those bad habits!

And with all of that being said it's time for This Week In Gaming!

On Thursday there was a Nintendo Direct. And when these come around I usually taper my expectations for awesome shit and just see what is upcoming from The Big N. This Direct was different. Iwata didn't say too much and just let the 1st trailer run. I didn't know that the world would forever change and I'd find something I thought I forever lost.

The one thing I've always wanted SSB to do is happening right now! LITTLE MAC IS IN SMASH!! I SCREAMED! I TEARED! I HYPED! Once I regained control of my faculties and realized I haven't been this hype for something since the Killer Instinct announcement is I needed to put this in some perspective. I then realized is there's no perspective for this! A game I knew I'd buy a system is now game I KNOW I'LL BE BUYING A SYSTEM FOR! Mac is a beast and the Power Meter adds something awesome to the character while reaching for the throwback with the reference to the Arcade Punch-Out!! series & Super Punch-Out!! Just a hard hitter and I'll echo a sentiment I've heard with his comparison to Captain Falcon when I used to play him exclusively so long ago. This game has delivered major with all the newcomers so far and the changes to the veterans that I've noticed when I peek in on the game every now and again. Mega Man raised the hype cap by a lot. Rosalina made me pay attention. Little Mac has brought back that Brawl level hype for me. I'm ready for this game now and knowing that this game can deliver so much more is that the game has earned my hype and hope back. Don't let me down.

Sometime after I watched that part repeatedly is that I started the video up again and then I was reminded that Kirby: Triple Deluxe is dropping soon. On my to buy list. Y'all know how much I love Kirby!

More stuff was shown and then Mario Kart 8 is now going to have all the Koopa Kids! #TEAMCOOTIEPIE! Please hold that shit! Thanks!

And then we got more news on Bayonetta 2! New playable character, some new story beats but no confirmation of Bayonetta 1 Wii or a limited edition Bayonetta 2 Wii U! Hype regardless of course! Just ready to play it! I'm glad we aren't getting overloaded on info. Keeps the mystique alive!

More character tutorials for J-Stars Victory VS dropped this past week featuring Ryotsu Kankichi, Kenshiro, Naruto Uzumaki & The Based God Yusuke Urameshi!

Profound happiness abound with Sengoku Basara 4! See how partners work together to do awesome ass combos and a moment with Shima Sakon!

You want Poison? We got her! A look at all her moves in Ultra if you can understand Japanese. Have fun with that.

Another week, another character feature for Persona Q. This week Aigis from Persona 3 & Kuma/Teddie from Persona 4!

And just the same with Persona Q is it's time for this week in Full Boost with some Navi DLC available and Kamille Bidan's Zeta Gundam (Titans Colors), Lunamaria Hawke's Impulse Gundam and Patrick Colasour's GN-XIII will be available later this week on PSN.

Speaking of Gundam is that JAEPO happened and Maxi Boost will be out next month. How this will affect Full Boost on consoles is to be seen but OG Extreme VS had some Full Boost suits added via DLC so anything can happen.

Also confirmed for Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax are Kirito from Sword Art Online and Tomoka Minato from Ro-Kyu-Bu!

Did you want a Shining fighting game. Blade Arcus is delivering one. And it looks strangely similar to Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax so does this mean that SEGA will be using this "engine" to pop out 2D fighters? We'll see.

And conveniently enough with Shin Koihime Musou coming out for PS3 this upcoming week is that also coming to arcades soon is the sequel Koihime Embusen! All I noticed is that there are some new characters and assists. When I learn more about it I'll be sure to let you know.

As far as I'm concerned with gaming is that I'm taking notes on a certain game for scientific purposes and you'll be seeing the results of that soon. Can't wait to get this one out to everyone. Been wanting to do this one for a long time.

On the watching awesome stuff side of things is Ressha Sentai ToQger is here and I see after the shift to a lighter tone worked for Kyoruger is that ToQger is going for more of the same. The premise is awesome and the show is gearing itself up to deliver upon it in every way it can. There's a lot of mystery into the story early on and I'm loving that already. So I'm down for whatever this show wants to do and I have a feeling that it will be a great followup to Kyoryuger. And now we wait for the crossover with Den-O that's coming because that's a given.

I finally got a chance to finish Megaforce & watch Episode 1 of Super Megaforce and I'll admit the last couple of episodes were decent including all those times that Robo Knight was around black people for a random reason or another. Super Megaforce however is that I'll need some time to warm up to. I'm just interested how they treat the celebration of the milestone more than anything. So we'll see how that goes.

Everything else you know I indulge in went in as such. The spotlight this week is squarely on Kill la Kill! I don't know how many times I can tell you to get familiar with it but after the end of Episode 18 is that my confirmation that this show is off the meat rack as my big brother B-Mac would say! I have the hope that this show won't let up now and will continue to bring the ruckus until the very end!

And as we usually do around this time, What I Watched On YouTube This Week!

Congrats to Patrick Klepek! As a avid watcher and should be player of Spelunky is that he achieved his goal! He's still playing the game and you should check out the feature if you're remotely interested in the game. GET FUCKED BOY!!!!

Very rarely does an episode of Botchamania stay up long enough on YouTube for me to highlight its existence so to celebrate this here's Botchamania 243!

Fine. I'll confirm this. Fluffy Puff X Chrissy is OTP! Just saying. I needed some Valentine's Day content so here's some.

Gemini Laser has a new episode of his Mega Man 7 project. You should watch his stuff. Edutainmental just like my stuff is!

And that's that!

This week, I gotta give the cover to Little Mac! I'm so hyped now! I must have this game in my life! And with no confirmation that Ike's coming back is Little Mac will be the perfect replacement as a main. However, #TeamNess & #TeamLucas till I die! This never changes!

And what must be some coincidence is that Sinister1's Blind Punch-Out!! & Zallard1's Super Punch-Out!! runs from #ADGQ2014 are available on SDA's YouTube Page! I've featured these runs when #ADGQ2014 was happening and I see no reason not to feature them again for this milestone! So please enjoy!

As usual, plans are plans. Execution of plans are the enemy I plan to defeat! Plans.

We'll be back next week doing what we always do best!

Same #TheCool time! Same #TheCool channel!

#TheCool: Farewell, My Brave Dinosaur Friends!

#TheCool as usual ready to do what it is you always expect. Whatever that is. We do it like clockwork though. Always and until I don't feel like it anymore. That's never by the way. Anyway seeing as I have no lead story or PT is that you need to know what crack is on #DoaGHThaDOJO for you to of course get cracked on. Available for you right this moment...

Akatsuki Blitzkampf Ausf.Achse, En Eins Perfektwelt, Aquapazza: Aquaplus Dream Match, Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX!!!!!, Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold, The King of Fighters XI, Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code V1.07, Chaos Code, Daemon Bride Additional Gain & Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late!

Plenty available and always updated. What we do the best in the business. Yesterday, today, tomorrow & the day after that!

With that being that said it's time for This Week In Gaming!

Skullgirls Encore will be out on PS3 tomorrow! You should know this. Also, Squigly & the color pack is free for 3 months so no excuse to not pick it up in that time frame. LAUNCH PARTY STILL ERRYDAY BITCH!!!

New costumes for DoA5U. Sexy New costumes for DoA5U! I needn't say more.

Soul Calibur Lost Swords is out in Japan now and will be out at some point in places that aren't there. I'll wait and see if they add anything to it before the release of it elsewhere. Looks interesting from what I've seen so far.

Drakengard 3 is dropping May 20th. Just a reminder. If you want a boxed copy then you'll have to order it directly from Square Enix's website. You can buy it digitally as well. A PSA from me to you!

Final Fantasy X & X-2 is celebrating Valentine's Day the only way it knows how. By showing the love between Tidus & Yuna! There will never be a video about Me X Rikku so don't ask. Just don't! Even if there was I'd never show you. Never! Thank You and Good Bye!

Profound sadness no more seeing the game's out. Learn more about the saga of Ii Naotora. Happy days!

Persona Q time. This week features Yukari Takeba & Junpei Iori from Persona 3!

It would seem that the Ex-S that was a 1st print DLC included with copies will be up on PSN at some point. Price unknown but it will be there if you didn't get it initially.

Naruto UNS Revolution is "revolutionizing" how it does business with 4 Player Battles & a Dream Match Scenario because there's no plot to draw from at the moment. Happens to the best of anime video games.

It's a whole lot of J-Stars going on as we slowly approach release. Finally got that trailer with Toguro & Lord Aizen. Frieza, Shishioh & Madara were there. Then 2 dudes stared saying Owae wa mo shindeiru! Kenshiro & Raoh are joining the battle so this is getting even more hype. Question if I may. What version of You wa Shock will they use? And then after that you can learn how to play the game and learn what Luffy, Goku and Battousai the Manslayer (pause) can do on that dream battlefield. HYPE!! YES PLEASE!!!

While I was getting this out to you is that there's a sequel to Battride War dropping on June 26th. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Possibility to finish Battride War 1 on the channel rising in hope! STAY TUNED!!!

I didn't do much gaming other than a hit of Project M, some Full Boost and the reminder of how hard it is to do the Level Select code in Sonic 3. Shit is hard yo. For real real. Not for play play.

Now we get to this part. Where I have to give my postmortem on one of my favorite Sentai shows because it has come to an end. Jyuuden Sentai Kyoryuger has been an awesome ride from start to finish. Never letting up for a second and just being something I looked forward to watching every single week. The finale delivered and left a lot of room for the future crossovers and VS movies that are still to come. There were also man tears involved! Not scared to admit that at all. I have nothing left to say other than watch it if you haven't for the simple fact that it is just too good not to do so. ToQger is up next and right here will be my thoughts on the Sentai about rainbows, trains & imagination next time. I can't wait! And after almost a year, I can do the dance now! Told you I'd learn it. BRAVE IN! FIRE!!!!

And maybe I should just admit my fears that this Dino Charge adaptation will suck. Prove me wrong, Saban. I double dare you! And why the snub to Go-Busters which would've been easier to adapt? The world will never know. Or maybe they do it after Dino Charge. I'll wait and judge accordingly!

Other than such the usual suspects are doing what they do best. Delivering those goods. Please stay doing so. Thank You! Top honors this week to Arrow, MLP, The Originals, True Detective, Space Dandy, Kill la Kill, The Vampire Diaries, House of Lies and Naruto & Bleach on the manga front. Your contributions to my week never go unnoticed!

You know what's happened in gaming over the last week. What I indulged in this week past. So time to wrap it up as we always do. What I Watched On YouTube This Week!

Who says an Abridged show can't teach life lessons. Pokemon: TBS happens to impart an important on you. Watch and see which one.

Speaking of Abridged shows. What if you could learn the plot of Kill la Kill without actually watching it? This is a joke because watching Kill la Kill is a required thing of you. This video comes very close without coming close at all. You'll see what I mean.

I will feature anything in this section that shows how ass the Royal Rumble was. So here's more of that.

That's that. I have no idea who the artist is who did the above picture but I'd like to thank them for featuring the heroes of Kyoryuger in a special way. I'm going to miss the show immensely. Thanks again, Kyoryuger for being awesome for the past year! I'll save the last dance for you! Promise!

As usual plans are planned. Execution is another matter. I'd stay tuned if I was you! Just a suggestion.

Until next we meet. Same #TheCool time! Same #TheCool channel!

#TheCool: How Big Exactly Is Your Bowl Again?

#TheCool back up in it as usual ready to do what we do best. Before we get into PT is I want to congratulate the Seattle Seahawks on winning the Super Bowl and such. Now, I didn't watch the game or anything or any NFL game to any completion in years. The only thing I knew about football anything lately was that Richard Sherman "promo" that was a thing for 5 seconds for reasons that only human beings who actually cared understood about that. But I needed to open with something and make the subtitle relevant somehow so there's that. The real problem comes when I have to choose a cover for this week's installment. Now that should be fun. You'll know the answer to that long after I make it though. I have this whole installment to figure it out.

With me stalling out for relevance is that PT's a no show this week for reasons. I'm trying to put together something though and I'll make sure that it is out when it needs to be. Stay tuned.

As usual however is that #DoaGHThaDOJO is serving the fiends with the crack they need and doing it with a smile. This week on deck...

Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late, Akatsuki Biltzkampf Ausf.Achse, Persona 4 The Ultimax: Ultra Suplex Hold, Project Justice, Daemon Bride Additional Gain, Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX!!!!!, Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code V1.07 & Ehrgeiz!

Plenty to get cracked out on. So please enjoy with no regrets.

With that being taken care of it just happens to be time for This Week In Gaming!

Guilty Gear XXX! This video does ever edge us closer to the arcade release this month and I'll admit I'm ready for the next steps of the Guilty Gear series. #DoaGHThaDOJO will be covering this as we do everything so stay tuned for that.

Spinal finally dropped for Killer Instinct with Fulgore on the way. I'm hearing Spinal's broken but this is the FGC so broken means that somebody lost to something they didn't like and now a bitching session is in order. Double Helix will figure it out as they have by letting things suss out before nerfing things. Something that other certain fighting game developers could use a lesson in. I'm ready to see what Season 2 has in store seeing as I highly doubt it didn't do the numbers to continue the support for the game. I'll wait.

The party's over for Full Boost. This DLC you have to pay for. Quatre in the Wing Zero TV and another High Moblity Zaku II. I guess.

Been a minute since we've seen something about Yaiba NGZ and this trailer focuses on the many costumes in the game including a couple DLC ones as well one of which happens to be Beck from Mighty No.9. Also there's a limited edition dropping that includes costumes for Ryu & Momiji for DoA5U. To be honest neither costume is what I was expecting but it is cool that the crossover between the 2 games are happening regardless. Maybe Momiji gets a Miss Monday costume. We'll see.

Need a tutorial for Bravely Default? Here's one for you. Learn something.

Finally, this game is coming out in MURICA! I'll sit back and get hype. Allow me this.

A new trailer for DanganRonpa is here and it just exists to drive the plot home. This should be on your short list if you have a Vita. The end.

I'm glad to know that Short Peace is coming to MURICA so I don't have to import it. Being honest the only reason I'm interested is because of the game that makes up one part of the anthology is being headed up by Suda51. Ranko Tsukgime's Longest Day looks to be nothing short of crazy and I'm glad more folks will get a chance to enjoy all of Short Peace.

This week in Persona Q hype is that we're introduced to Zen & Rei the main characters in the game. The purpose they serve to the plot is unknown but it'll be major. Whatever that actually is.

The first actual trailer for Moero Chronicle. I'm surprised that the "YouTube Decency Police" hasn't come knocking but seeing as Compile Heart is going to be limiting how much of this game that they show on YouTube is that they're hosting the trailer on their website and it is a thing to get to their website let me tell you. I'll be keeping up with the game the best I can so make sure to stay tuned.


I haven't played a thing this week. Just wasn't in the mood. It happens.

I watched plenty though. Taking some advice from J is that I gave True Detective a shot and now I'm telling you to do the same. Show's so good! All the other usual suspects did work as usual and are still turned up to 11. I just wanted you know that. Next week this section will be filled with some important thoughts on a certain something.

Now, What I Watched On YouTube This Week!

For some reason as soon as Danny, Joey & Uncle Jesse make an appearance on Jimmy Fallon is that its time to get hype for Full House. THROWBACK SHIT!!!!

Ponies X Boyz In The Hood. Not actually what you're thinking. But still hype.

Derpy's hot and sings a song. Not exactly what you're thinking. But still awesome.

Bart & Lisa re-enact the final moments of the Royal Rumble. With excruciating detail. For serious.

It's football related. I tried. Enjoy some Rachel! Shouts to HentaiAhegaoLover on deviantArt for the pic this week. Please go check out more of his work on said site by CLICKING HERE!!!! No duh. Viewer discretion and such!

That's that. You know the drill. Plans and such. Wait and see.

Join us next week!
