I do like the designs though.

I have a feeling you are making that one up. The Queen piece looks nothing like C.C. Not to mention the King piece doesn't look like Lelouch. The King piece looks like it's peaked with a crown.

I also would of thought the designers would be CLAMP and that's an all female design team, from what I hear.
I mis worded its from the extra books that come with the DVD's but no I am not making it up. Below I jotted down what they said in the DVD magazine. Besides why would I make it up?

I don't really see the big deal there, because they can both be classified as Queens, just in a different sense.

The chess piece was designed after C.C., and that is logical considering her status as an accomplice to both Lelouch and Zero, but Kallen is still Q1 in battle and the chess theme most directly applies in that context, so there is more than one symbolic meaning.

But well, that's just how I see it.

But if they designed the queen and king pieces after C.C. and Lelouch officially they IMO intended for LXC

I just don't think the pieces even slightly look like any of the characters.

I understand. I'm not trying to argue the relevance of the game to the characters. I'm talking about how the pieces appear. The chess pieces could become merchandise of the series.
I wasn't aware we could only talk about merchandise that actually existed.

Yes. This one is about Suzaku, Cecile, Gino and Anya. Cecile is anxious about Suzaku, as he faces pangs of remorse if the way he took is right. In the battlefield, they dig out a little girl, and Suzaku wants to use Lancelot to find her father. But then, the girl starts screaming and accuses the Knights of Rounds of murdering her family. This gets on Anya's nerves, so she shoots the girl, and Gino and Anya are like "so what?!", while Suzaku is like "what, you can't do this!".
Not really much new information, but Cecile is worrying about Suzaku like a mother, at least that's my impression.

Damn, that's pretty brutal of Anya, though not terribly surprising.

I saw a release date at Amazon for Code Geass LotR: Volume 3 in February 2009.
What I'm trying to find is when they could have a release for that first Nintendo DS RPG

For a second I thought you meant Code Geass: Lord of the Rings and can you provide a link? I am not seeing at all.

Yeah, I realized that myself after typing it. lol Have C.C. running around for pizza going "My precious.".

That seems like a long wait between the DVDs. The first two volumes are even out. It's nice the picture dramas are on the DVDs. I read you can also have commentaries on them.
What I love about DVDs are that if you want both English or Japanese dialog you can have both. During VHS era you could only choose one.

There was a post on Kit-chans journal where she had the picture of Lelouch holding that pink sword during 23 when he was addressing the troops before the battle. The caption underneath read "Rise men of the west!" and then "FOR GONDOR!". After she noted how it would be pretty disturbing to have Lelouch as Aragon...I couldn't help but agree

The commentaries aren't all that great in my opinion but I like all the extras-the picture drama's are a great addition to the set. I just hope that two volumes will be coming in February that way I can get another special edition.

I'm curious. How many episodes are on per disk? That's something the website I look up haven't been very clear about. The box set said the two disks go from episodes 1-9. On one disk is there four episodes and on another there are five?
Just strikes me as an odd number

That's because in Japan disk 1 was just simply episode 1. Bandai instead combined volumes 1 and 2 of the Japanese version. So technically volume 2 is actually volume's 3 equivalent in Japan.
