Re: Currently playing 4: Guns of the Patriots

So right now I'm sort of past the mid point of the Half Life 2 saga, like, I'm in Chapter 4 of Episode One. Vanilla HL2 is fuckin amazing, it's currently my favorite Valve game, tied with Portal 2. Episode One is good so far, but nowhere near as engrossing and compelling as HL2. It seems to be much ...

Re: EVA Roller Coaster

Nothing hurts more than knowing I'll never be able to ride Evangelion XR You Can (Not) Survive. Like, it's basically just a normal-ass roller coaster with a VR headset, I can't imagine it can be too difficult to recreate using one of those roller coaster simulators with the same video playing on an ...

New Theatrical Unit 01 has Kirby powers

So if you notice during the penultimate scene of New Theatrical Evangelion Edition Ha (2.22), the Tenth Angel goes to fire it's eye lasers at the 400% synced pseudo-evolved Unit 01, and Unit 01 blocks this. Shortly afterwards, Unit 01 fires eye lasers of her own that we have never seen before, but s...

Re: Currently playing 4: Guns of the Patriots

Started a Half-Life marathon recently upon getting a new laptop that can actually run things, and "finished" Source last night. I never beat the original Half-Life despite owning it since I hated the combat, but upon turning on godmode, my enjoyment skyrocketed. Nihilanth was still annoyin...

Re: Platinum Games general

Prepare for one of the weirdest and most interesting games ever. I remember about 2 or 3 years ago I was an idiot who never thought I'd play the Metal Gear series and watched YouTube user GaLm's surprisingly professional and entertaining playthrough of MGS and 2 Sons of Liberty, but thankfully it w...

That's a pretty fuckin radical avatar, Blue Monday. I should really finish Cowboy Bebop one of these days.

Re: Lilith and the MP Evas' "Fusion"

I feel like I have a reputation for getting things kinda wrong and kinda right on here, but I might be able to sorta answer a few of your questions. It never really made a ton of sense to me either, until I remembered that the Eva Series was designed, tested, and had their construction directly over...

Re: Platinum Games general

I would also suggest you to play MGS:R, it's more of a "classic" action game with Raiden (MGS2's MC) as a playable character. It's very fun. The PC version is the best one if you have a decent hardware to run it, the framerate of the PS3/360 version isn't the best (like most console versi...

I'm surprised this wasn't already a thread, seeing as how there are so many similarities in themes and tone to the first half of Neon Genesis Evangelion. So, uh... yeah, we need to talk about A Single Pale Rose. I've seen a lot of people confused online about what exactly this episode meant with...

Re: Evangelion's site and Facebook/Twitter covers updated with new images - First teases of Shin Eva

I don't really see a reason for Final to be shot in 4K. From a thematic perspective, sure, higher resolution will show a crisper image, then would it be 30fps or 60fps? There is only so much detail the eye can pick up, and from a cost perspective (I am an accountant after all) it may be far more co...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

So, Rotton Tomatoes doesn’t actually write movie reviews. They simply compile all of the movie reviews from both critics and audiences and give you the average rating in each category. As a result, a 100% movie score doesn’t indicate a “perfect movie,” rather only that 100% of either critics or aud...

Re: Platinum Games general

The Wonderful 101 is a really weird game and the demo makes it look 100 time worse than how it actually is, if you can buy it for a low price you should definitely give it a chance. After a few hours it gets really good. I'll definitely try to seek out a cheapo complete copy. I really want to get i...

Yeah so I recently got Anarchy Reigns for like $6 and it's pretty fuckin fun.

Re: Release Theory based on Merchandise

This isn't normal? I thought having like 10 character figures for every 1 Evangelion Unit model was just a thing, just part of the marketing side of Eva and that side's obsession with the female characters and selling merch of them, the same side of Eva that created all those shitty slice of life sp...

Re: First half or Second half of EoE: Which was better in your opinion?

I would have to say the first half mostly because of the JSSDF raid on NERV HQ sequence which I feel is a masterfully animated and choreographed battle in both the carnage as well as the sheer hysteria happening in the minds of the unprepared staff of NERV dealing with a trained army. Second half i...
