I saw the first 4 episodes of this yesterday and it was very entertaining. While the premise of the show is not truly that original it was a very tongue in cheek treatment of some gaming paradigms and pop culture settings, some of which I'm not super familiar with, but familiar enough that the situatial humor is really funny.
I would highly recommend it if you are:
a) familiar with video game strategies
b) a fan of early 80's pop culture, especially anime/asian themed
c) enjoy a bit of bouncing bewbies mixed with riske humor

I'm definitely signed up to see the next set of 4 episodes next week, I rather think I'm hooked. The fun thing is that there are episodes where the animation style changes for the entire episode and some where it's just spots chosen for emphasis.
I wasn't sure who was out there, but I didn't want to give too much plot away for fear of spoiling it for a new viewer since part of the fun is deciphering what exactly is going on. One thing not to miss is the pre-episode previews, it helps the viewer understand the relationship between the characters.
