Today Final Fantasy XIII sucks and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei makes fun of it, 4kids does something surprising, and Upper Deck gets owned legally over the Yu-Gi-Oh! Card game.

Good fight, Upper Deck. And, I agree. The new Yu-Gi-Oh! series really sucks. Why continue with making new series when people prefer the original?

XIII just looks like it's gonna mostly revolve around drama.

Final Fantasy had dungeons? When was that?...JK

How many cuts is the CEO of 4kids willing to take before he's not making any money and they're still making crappy dubs? Sounds to me with the little bit of time he has bought himself, he needs to think over their strategy, change that name to 4Adults, and start making good dubs.

Yu-Gi-Oh is a fad that went away a long time ago but they just don't know when to quit. If they didn't stop production of it when it became obselete, it's not a surprise they didn't stop making it even when they lost the right to it.

Nice fill in. Thanks for new :D

Upper Deck is the biggest joke of a company out there. I used to be a sports card collector and had to deal with them way too much.

Their "F" rating by the Better Business Bureau speaks volumes about what kind of business they run.

And Believe it or not, there are still small parts in North America that are still VERY huge on Yu-gi-oh which I find crazy.

I know. There was this outlet mall that I would go to on Saturdays because they have a really awesome chinese restraunt. To this day, there are still both kids and those guys who are like 29 and wear basket ball shorts when they really shouldn't be still playing Yu-Gi-Oh at the food court area there. It really is one of the sadest things ever.

I don't do that, but I got the WC09 for the DS

I think GX was killing the YuGiOh series and 5D pushed that knife deeper into the wound
