More bad news

Posted by complich8 in Site News

Yeah, so I’m a bearer of ill omens. So sue me :-p

Bad news here is that the whole site may experience some downtime in the near future. The hard drive is having issues (failing tests, etc), so we’ll be having it replaced shortly.

Assuming things go down the way we want them to, we _shouldn’t_ experience any really downtimes or significant loss of data … but it’ll be several hours of downtime sometime in the next week or so.

Gundam SEED Stargazer?

Posted by masamuneehs in Anime

–A sales solicitation for the upcoming Japanese Gundam Seed Destiny Special Edition DVD release includes the following statement, “The Seed boom heats up! OVA Mobile Suit Gundam Seed C.E. 73 Stargazer (tentative title)’ currently being planned!.” No further details about the OVA have been released.–

God save the Queen!

That’s right folks. Sounds like that wacky Fukuda is going to be at it again (with his crazy, talent-lacking wife in tow…) Since Gundam is basically a cash cow, I’m not surprised they’re milking the Seed series for all its worth. And for all you who say ‘it’s probably just another rumor’ I trust Gunota, and they say its been confirmed by Aishen Mail Order that the advertisement is actually going to be on the SEED Destiny Special Edition.

Bandai’s official website for the SEED Destiny Special Edition is here, but I can’t read Japanese….

What surprises me about this OVA (that’s right, OVA, not series) is that it’s said to be set in C.E. 73, the same year as Destiny was. So I’m thinking it might be like Astray, a sorta side-story to the events of Destiny. But what really baffles me is that ‘Break the World’ and the beginning of the war in SEED Destiny is set ‘in late C.E. 73’. Does this mean that Stargazer is going to be a prequel? I have no clue, I’m only relating what I’ve read.

Oh, yeah, who the hell am I? Name’s masamuneehs. You’ll be seeing more of me than you’ll probably want to in the future. I’ll be helping out on the site and hopefully implementing some fun new features, along with the help of other GotWoot staff. I’m an American, but I’m studying in Italy for a semester and am in the springtime of my life. I tend to be a little long-winded (as you probably already gathered) but that’s just how it is.

I’m sure you all want to go post comments on this news, so have at it you beasts.

Forum Issues

Posted by complich8 in Site News

We’re currently fighting with coldfusion and system load issues. The upgraded coldfusion version didn’t help quite as much as we had hoped it would.

Forum availability will likely be uncertain for the next few days, as we continue to work to resolve our problems.

Meanwhile, feel free to join the irc channel (or use the web version).
