Before we get this train moving on this special #TGS2015 installment of #TheCool a couple of things!
The One & Only & EvilFreakzilla are back in that ass with some Rage of the Dragons! Shouts to Cauptain for calling me out on some quality control issues. To be honest, I just record, put it together and get it out. Thanks to his advice is that future content like this will be better for the advice he gave me. Just a reminder that even as a teacher that I'm always a student first and foremost. Cauptain, thanks again!
JOTKING and I combine once again for a #2NiggasSpeakOn all about some subjects we'll touch on later. Do your research if you wish to learn the secret identity of Parkinson's Tyrone!
A Special Edition of #TheCool dropped as well just letting you guys know our dedication to keeping up the quality that #TheCool should be and will be moving forward from here! So be sure to give that a read if you haven't yet!

THIS TRAIN'S MOVING!
NEXT STOP! THIS WEEK IN EVERYTHING!
Last week at the Dubai Game Expo is we learned of the 2nd new character to Street Fighter V, Radit...Rashid not from Dragon Ball but damn that scouter though! Jokes aside is Rashid looks awesome from what I've seen so far. He looks to bring his own flavor to the stew and we need more of that. So welcome to the world of Street Fighter! Something, something this character was announced on 9/11 and the internet got mad about it because day that ends in Y.
Street Fighter wasn't done revealing characters during this time frame. TGS is upon us and with it brought back the Queen of the Kanzuki Zaibatsu...
KARIN'S BACK BITCHES! Nobody's seen Karin since Capcom Fighting Jam so its good to see her in V and she's looking better than ever. I'll save everything else for the next update of Dirty Little Veecrets coming soon! Be watching for it. Laughing at the haters!
THE! KING! OF! FIGHTERS! FOURTEEN! Yep. This is happening. To compliment this trailer is a new installment of #PocketChange all about my initial thoughts so be sure to read that when you get the chance. Very hyped to see this game develop into what ever it becomes.
In the no duh of the century thus far is Dream Drop Distance is getting the HD treatment alongside some new cutscenes related to Chi and a playable epilogue/prologue featuring Aqua in what SquareEnix calls...Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue. This is a thing that happened.
This Persona 5 trailer bucks the trend of nothing and gives you more than you can handle. See for yourself!
All the Kat you love and all of the fluff you love too! Not only is the 1st game getting remastered for PS4 but Part 2's following it soon after. Hype is the understatement of the day here!
Vanillaware had some new Leifthrasir to show off for TGS if you're interested.
If however you were looking for what was the next Vanillaware/Atlus collab was going to be is you're looking at it. 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim! Don't know much about it other than how amazing it looks. More info when I get it.
Ace Attorney's back for Numero 6 and Phoenix is seeing a lot of dead people. The trailer hints to why. See if you can suss it out.
Extreme VS Force is I think a port of Full Boost/Maxi Boost to Vita or something else entirely. This may be a stop gap until Maxi Boost or some equivalent hits PS4 but good to see the series on a portable again.
The big news about this game is the Asian version will be in English. The last time this was tried was with a Sword Art Online game and it didn't go so well or so I've heard. I don't think this means that the series is coming stateside anytime soon but now at least you'll be able to play the game in English.
Eyes of Heaven is dropping December 17th and this trailer doesn't show anything we haven't already talked about on previous installments.
This trailer for Project X Zone 2 doesn't show us anything we haven't talked about in previous installments.
This trailer is a showcase of a familiar crossover face and some new ones as well.
KOS-MOS as usual always holding down Monolith Soft as their representative but repping Xenosaga as well.
However, KOS-MOS isn't alone. ????? from Xenoblade Chronicles is KOS-MOS' Pair Unit partner this time around.
Yes, I censored "her" name because who "she" is in Xenoblade Chronicles is a massive spoiler for the game for anybody who hasn't played it yet. Either pick up Xenoblade Chronicles and play it to find out the details or research who this is at your own risk. You've been warned.
Here's where things get pretty interesting!
Yes, that is One True Bae Lucina and Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening! This means everything you think it could and then some. If Bayo & Jeanne as a Pair Unit & Rodin as a Solo Unit don't make it into this game is there will be problems! I seriously have no clue what this could lead to but the possibilities of what could have me more hyped for this game than ever. Amiibo? Amiibo.
Project X Zone 2: Brave New World drops on February 16th! IN AMERICA!!! GET READY!
Thanks to Gamer for the pictures that were used here. Read the article where the pictures came from for more information.
I'm glad I was able to get some confirmation on this. Just like the previous Saint Seiya games is that if you want a disc copy in English is you'll need to import a copy from Europe. This has been a Public Service Announcement brought to you by #TeamGRF and People Like Us! Thank You! Game drops in Europe on September 25th with no release date known for North America.
You've seen this trailer in Japanese now see it with some English VO. I don't know if this confirms a dub but heavy on the maybe though.
Koei Tecmo showed up to TGS and brought with them the results of the DoAX3 vote...
What this also means is Marie Rose who soundly walked away with 1st place will be getting a special DLC costume for Fortune and Honoka in 2nd will be getting one for Venus. Only question is now is what's the fate of 10-15? We shall find out soon.
We're not quite done with DoA in this installment. More later on.
Something, something PlayStation VR support! This is going to get pretty interesting.
What you're looking at is Ni-Oh! This is a game that was long since thought to be dead. They first announced this in 2003 and even then it was slated to be the successor to Ninja Gaiden with its own twist. Fast forward 12 years and Ni-Oh is looking better than ever. Definitely keeping my eyes on this game.
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is based off the The Heroic Legend of Arslan novel series and from what I've heard looks to continue the efforts of shaking the Warriors series to the core and switching things up Outside of that I don't know much else however from what I seen is I'm feeling it. Eyes glued to this one too.
Hyrule Warriors would like to welcome the Hero of Winds, Link to the roster to join Tetra and The King of Red Lions in this version of the game. You'll be able to add all 3 characters to the WiiU with a DLC code that comes with the game. There are more characters coming so stay tuned for such information as it becomes available.
Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is out everywhere in your hood right now! All launch retail copies are the Double D Edition with a 2-Disc soundtrack for your listening enjoyment. Enjoy your Life and Hometown!
Last Round is continuing their DLC train of costumes with another collab set featuring the ladies from various Nihon Falcom titles. Falcom are responsible for the Ys & The Legend of Heroes series of games and many others. Feel free to see who's who and what looks like what and we'll discuss the other side of this when you join me below.
If you're trying to acquire these costumes for yourself then here's the exchange rate of cash for goods upon purchase.
A single costume is $2.99 and the set on PS3, PS4 & XBONE will run you $33.99 & $34.99 on 360.
The annual fan created Halloween costumes are next and coming soon are some Tatsunoko collab costumes. Y'all know what that means! If you don't then you'll soon see.
The pictures came from the JP Last Round Webpage.
Revelator's coming home in Spring 2016. Hopefully we get it in a 2 week release window similar to how Sign was handled.
Pikachu Kamen is coming to the arcade version just like I thought. I don't know when that update will happen so stay tuned for that info.
Nitroplus Blasterz is still coming and to prepare you for such activities here's a sneak peek at Mora, Ignis, Al Azif & Ein. Game drops on December 10th.
The new trailer for Fighting Climax Ignition with some playable Tatsuya action. Game drops December 17th. I don't know when he'll be added to the arcade version whether if that's before or after the port drops. News when I get it.
Here's your first look at Shining Blade's Misty in Blade Arcus from Shining EX. Game drops November 26th. Shouts to Famitsu & 4Gamer for the footage
A video that shows you all the reasons why you should never play the 3DS or WiiU versions of Rodea: The Sky Soldier ever! Game drops November 10th.
Always got Moero Crystal on deck for you because I know you love it! Rub, rub, rub!
The Sega 3D Fukkoku Archives are back for a 2nd go around and here's what's going to be on it.
Sonic 1, Thunder Blade, Galaxy Force II, Fantasy Zone II Double & Altered Beast which are games that were previously released on the eShop.
The Sega Master System games in this collection are Maze Hunter/Walker & Fantasy Zone II.
The news is not only will Puyo Puyo 2 be in this collection is that Power Drift is coming as well. I'm a big fan of Power Drift and I want to know what kind of bells and whistles this version will have given the fact of the alternate tracks from the Network Battle Version and what the Saturn port added. Can't wait to see what M2 cooks up for both titles.
Sega also announced a remake of Yakuza 1 and Yakuza 6 is coming soon as well. More info once I get some.
One thing I always do before installments of #TheCool that revolve around trade shows is take a look around the web and see if there was something cool I missed. Killing Bites is what I brought back for you. Killing Bites is based off a manga that after reading it is something I suggest you do as well and this is the game adaptation for it. Given how the manga sets things up is that this may be the Bloody Roar game I've wanted since 2003! Game's due sometime next year and the manga and this game are on my radar. Watch for updates on both!
WHAT DID I GET INTO THIS WEEK?!
Watching too many Super Mario Maker videos. I need to cop the game myself and get to creating. I just wish the tilesets emulated the games a lot closer but when you have 4 different games to use as basis for creation is some of the more game accurate attributes and items had to be streamlined for easier creation no matter what you choose as a canvas. Here's hoping they let the tool become a lot more expansive in the future,
I acquired some tech and I hope to be taking advantage of it in the upcoming week if time permits. Be watching for it if it goes down.
I'm looking to finish out Super Metroid. Trying to dodge Nintendo is a stupid reason to stop sharing a game I love with the folks that appreciate said love. Figuring out the when and where is another thing but I want to get it done because it should've been done last year. Thanks for your understanding in this.
Coming soon, #TripleDaGODExplainsItAll...Star Gladiator Episode 1: Final Crusade. Just like when I finally got my hands on Rival Schools 2 is my appreciation for the series comes from a long time love of Nightmare of Bilstein. Final Crusade is an awesome base which Nightmare of Bilstein takes advantage of in many ways. Final Crusade is at least worth checking out before you delve into Nightmare of Bilstein.
You need Blunt Talk on your radar. I'm not saying this because one of my favorite actors of all time is Patrick Stewart. It is just a damn good show and ever since he started clowning as Bullock on American Dad is I found a new respect for him as an actor and master of his craft. Just watch Blunt Talk.
South Park's back for Season 19 and they're already out the gate clowning. This will be some great stuff. It has been a long time since the show didn't deliver the goods and I don't think this is where the ball will be dropped.
Next time we do this Drive will "be over" because the 2 episodes after are similar to the end of Wizard that was side stuff to introduce Gaim to the streets. I'm excited for what this finale will bring and one step closer to going Ghost.
We'll also have a wrap up of Star vs. the Forces of Evil as well. One of the best decisions I've made in a while to jump on a good show and it hasn't let me down yet. Thoughts on said subject next time.
As usual, my thanks to the Usual Suspects for delivering the goods. This spot is going to be getting bigger because the Fall TV season is starting up with GOT HAM AKA GOR DON, The Muppets, Heroes Reborn & OUAT Season 5 up on the docket first. With the rest of them coming 2 weeks later. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
WHAT I WATCHED ON THE INTERNET THIS WEEK!
Episode 3's on TeamFourStar's website if you want to peep it now and I'll have it right here for you next time.
Remember when I told you Critical Role was that crack?! This is the reminder that it is such. Critical Role goes live every Thursday from 7:00-9:00PM PST on the Geek & Sundry's Twitch Channel.
The playlist above only has the first 12 episodes within it I'm sorry to say. However, don't fret though because I always got you. You can hit up Geek & Sundry's Website to get caught up to Episode 23 as of this writing and if you happen to miss a live episode you can catch up by either subscribing to their Twitch to watch the archives or check their website on Mondays for the episode to be posted. #Critters
Shouts to ToucanLDM and all those who assist him with the My Little Pony Meets series. I may have featured this in a past installment but there's been quite a few more episodes since I last watched and they're all good. Have a watch!
The Throwback of the Week is dedicated to one of my favorite all time skits on In Living Color...The Dozens! Jamie Foxx & Nick Bakay killed it every time. Miss shows like this.
That shall be that!
As you exit the train please notice this week's art provided by 令朗 which is the Chicken Wings & Nacho Cheese of what this relates to! Karin X Poison...YES! PLEASE!
If you like to check out more art like this then be sure to hit up the artist's Pixiv for more like it!
I have no idea if this will be a reset of when #TheCool comes out but I'd like to get back to putting this out in a more timely manner in which the news covered makes sense in a timely context. I have no idea what or when that is. Just count on #TheCool to come out when the time's right!
As usual, we thank you for riding with us! This train is nothing without the passengers riding it so once again, thanks!
When #LastWeekRightNow strikes, we'll be there! Trust!
Same #TheCool time! Same #TheCool channel!
-Triple Da G.O.D!
