    What kind of drugs is El Shaddai like, exactly? Is there some sort of combination we need to imbibe?

    From what I've seen of El Shaddai

    You'll need a little bit of everything

    Wasn't sure what this game was, so I looked up some videos and then suddenly this video crossposted from the G&T thread into the Youtube thread made more sense. Maybe you'll need to imbibe a particularly Japanese combination of them.

    I'm having a really hard time taking this game seriously now after seeing all the videos Niconico has done. Like how can I take this seriously when the whole time I'd be playing I'd be thinking of

    this?

    I'll still check it out most likely, but that video is just the tip of the iceberg for what Japan has done with this game.

    But the US release date isn't for another month and a half. I guess Tycho's playing an import copy.

    The first panel of this comic had nothing to do with the second and third

    there could literally be anything there and it'd still be good

    I must concur that this is an especially great comic.

    Both the art and pacing with the writing are very solid.

    Well the initial subject of El Shaddai could be exchanged with any number of other things, but being on drugs is important to the last two.

    I know what you mean though in that its more about a euphoric experience dealing with hippo creation then anything presented initially.

    Hippothalamus

    The joke may be going over my head here.

    But it's hippocampus and hypothalamus, not hippothalamus.

    The hippocampus was actually named due to its resemblance to a sea horse.
