I bought that from Gamefly a few weeks ago. I haven't played it yet though.

I played the demo a while back. It wasn't exactly groundbreaking and, as with almost all shooter sequels in this post-CoD gaming world, eschews the history of its franchise in order to be another CoD-inspired multi-player centric arcade shooter, but the SP had an interesting setting and plot and the gun selection and gunplay was good enough to be fun. I just never got it because I had other games higher up on my list. I saw it was being offered for free for PS Plus subscribers and I had been meaning to renew my PS Plus, so I figured "what the hell".

I didn't think you COULD do a Trainspotting sequel.

I fucking loved Trainspotting. I just hope the sequel isn't a disappointment.

And Irvine Welsh did wrote a follow-up to Trainspotting:

I've been watching Dragonball Z Abridged, and I have to say that it's fucking hilarious. Are they still making it?

They are slowly making more. When you are caught up, watch their Hellsing Ultimate Abridged.

Good. I want to see more of Ghost Nappa!

And I probably will.

I'm watching this anime that came out almost 10 years ago called Zipang.

It's about a single JSDF Aegis class Destroyer, the Mirai, that got sent back to 1942 in the Pacific and now openly affecting the timeline and changing history. It's a really interesting and intense story of how modern technology and ideals clash with WWII.

EDIT: Damn, within 2 minutes, the Mirai took out 30 Dauntless fighters with its main gun and missiles. In an early episode, they dodged 6 torpedoes from a sub and fired back an ASROC. These guys must have been shitting their pants. And one big finale was a single Tomahawk took out the USS Wasp carrier which is weird because JMSDF ships do not carry Tomahawk cruise missiles. The use of the Tomahawk cruise missile in the story suggests that in the near-future universe of JDS Zipang, Japan had changed its policy on offensive weapons, or it takes place in an alternate universe where Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution never existed...or the write fucked up.

There was a book similar to that in which a combined JSDF/USN carrier/amphib task force gets sucked back in time to Midway.

And wasn't that sort of the entire premise of The Final Countdown?
