Random Update For No Reason - Heroes, Yes - The Television Series & Transformers 2

We at Japan Video Games aren't just your average 10 - 8 p.m. grunts, no no! In fact, after hours, me and street fighter 4 monster Andy and a couple of other buddies enjoy watching Heroes, all of it, up to the most recent episode.

I'm surprised they haven't made a Heroes game just yet, though the cover of Disaster Report on PS2 looks so close to Hayden Panettiere. Why did we feature Megan Fox instead of Hayden? Because Hayden just turned legal. Since we don't want political ramifications, Megan Fox seemed like the practical choice.

But for transformers, they've made serious capitalization attempts at game merchandise, but I'm expecting to see the next one fail just like the first. I'm going to look for it in the clean-out bins sporting $14.99 red display signs and old price tags. I'm sure the movie will be great though, hopefully will live up to its predecessor, otherwise, it's over.

Genre: Fighting
Company: Sony Computer Entertainment
Version: Japan
I had to come back with another blog post about this game again, yay to new information. We encourage you to pre-order, I've ordered a very healthy amount of this game and it won't have any sort of demons-souls-type shortage. Extended Information:

The characters in the Heat the Soul series are directly based upon characters taken from Bleach. As a new installment is released, new characters are added to the character selection. With Heat the Soul 4 set between Shinji Hirako's introduction and the entrance into Hueco Mundo, "normal" characters originate from The Arrancar arc and later, while "EX" forms, as they're known in the game, are from the Soul Society: The Rescue arc.

To avoid confusion, all characters will be referred to as they are in the most recent installment in the series, Heat the Soul 5. It also appears that most (if not all) characters can change forms during battle. For example, Hollow Ichigo and Ichigo can start out a match with shikai and end it with bankai when they have enough spiritual pressure.

We're receiving more stock of the Charizard pokemon center plush in a week or so. This pokemon center plush is much larger than its 5"-6" counterparts. Simply put, this plush is not available as an UFO, but only as a pokemon center plush.
-General Information-
Charizard , Lizardon in original Japanese language versions), known as the Flame Pokémon, is the evolved form of Charmeleon. Its name originates from the words "charcoal" or "char" and "lizard". Where as Charmander and Charmeleon are ground-bound lizard like creatures, Charizard resembles a large traditional European dragon. Despite this, Charizard is explicitly a Fire/Flying-type, not a Dragon-type. This Pokemon is on the cover art for the boxes of Pokemon: Red Version and Pokemon: FireRed Version.
