...For anime, those names are very short, though.
Oh, thank you! :D The same goes for your posts as well! Several TCTI users' posts probably qualify, even. :cer_laugh: (Idk; sometimes I feel like people tend to gloss over my posts due to the sheer length of a number of them. Also, some of them at times tend to break the flow of conversation in TCTI, and sometimes I feel like I'm just awkwardly rambling. XD)

And true about the anime name thing - Nisemonogatari is probably just the longest one-word title (if it can be construed as "one word") that I've read in recent memory. A bunch of other titles like Fullmetal Alchemist's Japanese title, Hagane no Renkinjutsushi, probably qualify; a lot of them due to the use of multiple words; no and terms like that. On second thought, this thread is listing even more weird long ones that are mouthfuls, like Shin Shiraiyuki Hime Densetsu Pretear.

LOL; and I almost forgot about the mouthfuls that Digimon Xros Cross Wars has spawned recently: Dejimon Kurosu Wōzu: Aku no Desu Jeneraru to Nanatsu no Ōkoku and Dejimon Kurosu Wōzu: Toki o Kakeru Shōnen Hantā-tachi. (rough transliterations from Wikipedia, but even the English translations convey how long the titles seem to be)

EDIT: And apparently, Nisemonogatari is a portmanteau, which kind of explains why such a "single" word is so long...?

It's not exactly a torrent any more anyway, but you add to it if anything.

Yeah, Nisemonogatari is a portmanteau (word play is one of the series' strong points) of Nisemono (false; fake) and monogatari (work of literature; story). Just like its prequel Bakemonogatari is of Bakemono (monster, demon)... And all the other thousand millions of books in NisiOisin's Monogatari series.

Hmm...now that I think about it, you're probably right. Well, as long as we reach infinity, conversation or brief bursts/spurts of thought are OK by me!

Wow...I knew Street Fighter 4 had indulged in Capcom Sequel Stagnation to an extent, but I didn't know it was that bad! :cer_laugh: I'm guessing your "runner-up Game of the Year" for 2011 is the 3DS edition?

Also, the logo for Street Fighter x Tekken is freaking awesome. The way it was animated in the trailer...I nearly cried the first time I saw that due to the brevity of the sheer awesomeness.

On another note, why is Nintendo getting shafted again (yeah, I know Nintendo consoles get their fair share of exclusives; my concern is more towards the "multiplatform" arena, which seems to have somehow mutated into meaning "only PS3/XB360")? I guess the home console shafting can't be helped due to the Wii being "underpowered" in the graphics department compared to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but even the 3DS doesn't get a variant? I'm hoping Wii U will begin to get its own share of multiplatform games (although I'm not sure whether developers will shy away from that console due to the cost of making games that utilize the Wii U controller's screen or something, like how 3DS developers have to incorporate/keep in mind the 3D of the 3DS). Yet somehow, movie-licensed games don't really have this "multiplatform" problem, as I see Nintendo's consoles getting steady releases of those just as PS3 and Xbox360...

(Sorry if this seems rantish; I'm just dismayed that Nintendo's consoles (mostly the Wii) miss out on certain highly-anticipated "multiplatform" games that you think would normally come out on ALL home consoles, not just 2/3 of home consoles.)

EDIT: Ah; thanks for clarifying! The series seems interesting, from what I've heard/read of it.

Why would I include SSFIV3DS? That's just the same game. o3o

Also, you write really long posts. Makes this one seem small and inadequate. o3o

It's not that the Wii got left behind, except that it did. Fanboyism isn't healthy. Especially when the battle in question is essentially Firefox vs Chrome vs Netscape.

Fanboyism is very healthy. Screaming and getting riled up is good exercise.

Also, this is STILL REALLY GOOD LOOKING.

Now I get it. The 4-word rule thingamajig is a minimum, not a limit. I worried over nothing.
And... cool! People here watch Nisemonogatari too... too bad it ends tomorrow. Or later, depending on where you live.

The Cute Oshawott of mine who made me famous on PC has gone missing, if you know his whereabouts, please contact Hikari10.

I know he's hiding somewhere...

Yeah, but that's in theaters. BDs would come around... 3 months later? The earliest that I can get a decent copy would be around winter. Yeap, that's a loooooong wait. Oops, that needs more Os. Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong.

The Crows won the NAB grand final. TCTI regulars from 2008/2009 would understand why this matters.

I haven't watched AFL for ages, but yay @ Crows winning!! NOW THEY JUST NEED TO WIN THE REAL GRAND FINAL. :3

Went do you understand, I hope you do :(

Well, hopefully, they'll make a remastered version for Nisemonogatari too, like they did with the Bakemono Blu-Rays. Nisemono was well done to begin with, but it can always be even better :P

I am feeling music to my ears... makes me forget about dessert.

If I were to make a religion, it would be Anti-Wikileaks-ism. It's like Atheist but against my least fave site in the world...
