Your Local X

Quick kudos to Fantom Comics in TenleyTown.

Knowledgeable, friendly staff that don’t feel like they’re waiting for you to steal something.

Yeah, I probably shouldn’t write their copy, but they are pretty cool. I mentioned I was going to pick up two of the back trades of Fable, guy at the register gave me four “Fantom Bucks” towards my purchase when they come in tomorrow.

Pretty cool.

So, in short, check’em out.

Right, well I guess that’s four dollars worth of promotion.

Best Title Ever

I was looking forward to a game that I couldn’t remember the title of. Now, I don’t look forward to a lot of games. This one was unique, in terms of story and presentation.

The premise is that instead of cars, robotic two legged vehicles became the norm. The game is about an amnesiac boy that owns one of these vehicles. As far as I can tell, it’s a game about him, his robot and travelling from town to town being a roadie for the “Trot Band.”


So I couldn’t find the name and I knew it was due for a localization and release here in the states sometime. Finally found the title. (Thank you interwebs!)

Ponkotsu Roman Daikatsugeki Bumpy Trot

Which translates to

Junk Romance Great Action Bumpy Trot

Which, when released here in the states, will be shortened to

Bumpy Trot

For the life of me, I don’t know why the name was difficult to remember.

It’s so intuitive.
