Re: Is Spike Spencer the main cause of Shinji hatred overseas?

Um, why? What's so wrong with something that could be loved by all? (or most, since this is humanity we're talking about) Nothing inherently, but not everything can or should be that. Shinji is a highly individual and flawed character; the qualities which make him unique and interesting are the qua...

Re: Is Spike Spencer the main cause of Shinji hatred overseas?

Animu voice acting sounds like animu voice acting in any language. This ain't news, especially if you've ever heard an actual Japanese person talk. I can count a very small number of anime where the Japanese voice actors are going for anything resembling realism as opposed to cartoon-style delivery,...

Re: Metal Gear Solid

Even the gameplay had major flaws - the open world is conspicuously empty outside of the handful of outposts and lacks flavor and variety outside of its overall geography, the Side Ops are hugely repetitive padding, there was very clearly meant to be at least one more area in addition to Afghanistan...

Re: Mohiro Kitoh

I legitimately want to know what kind of fucked-up thing(s) happened in Kitoh's childhood to make him as obsessed as he is with the subject of violence, sexuality and cosmic horror involving children. It goes way beyond abstract thematic interest with him and into the realm of fetishistic fixation. ...

Re: Do people still hate that last movie

The visuals are also a part of the script. (Scripts contain a lot of "Close-Up on..." "Pulls-Back on..." "P.O.V. Shot of..." "Asuka looks like she hasn't aged a day..." ect.) True, and I should know since I'm currently working on a (very amateur) screenwritin...

Re: Do people still hate that last movie

At some point in the future (when I'm not supposed to be working) I will bother trying to produce an actual writeup/potential megapost on what specifically I feel to be 3.0 's visual strengths. The short version is: breathtaking vistas of desolation, a lot of surrealist play with space and dimension...

Re: Evageeks is a story about repetition

My approach to narrative art and its industry since then has been very fast and loose, to the point where it's more of a flowing river than an unwavering foundation. Trying to stay artistically active will do that to an individual, I guess. Not being dogmatically tied to a single aesthetic system o...

Re: Xenogears

X and Xenoblade's plots are not in any way connected, if anyone is unclear about that

They both borrow general themes and motifs from the previous Xeno games but that's about it.

Re: Xenogears

Was gonna ask if anyone here's been playing Xenoblade X . I have; it's... interesting. I have a lot of thoughts on it but not really the time to get into them right now. Like Tetsuya Takahashi's older projects, it's a very ambitious and very flawed game, but this time it's flawed in a totally differ...

Re: Metal Gear Solid

I put upwards of 150 hours into MGS5 , beat every mission and Side Op, and I may even go back and try to S-rank all the missions. And yet every week or so, I still watch the E3 2014 " Nuclear " trailer and long for the game it seems to be promising, which is most certainly not the game I p...

Re: Do people still hate that last movie

Hello Kitty Unit 02 was fucking dumb though, I'll give the haters that. Unit 02 + 04 looks even dumber.

3.0 is flawed, but still the only one of the three films so far that really seems to justify its existence separate from the original series.

Re: Do people still hate that last movie

The "plot" isn't all a movie has going for it, though. 3.0 's moment-to-moment narrative (Shinji's story and emotional arc, much of it communicated by those aforementioned expressive and symbolic visuals) is, if anything, clearer than 2 's. It is a very incomplete movie though, and much of...

Re: Linking 2.22's ending to 3.33

Unsurprising seeing as pretty much every single line of dialogue Kaworu has in 1 and 2 (and much of 3) is some cryptic allusion to yet-unexplained plot elements.

Re: Independence Day Sequel

Just gonna say that I wish all overfunded summer blockbusters could revel in their own utter stupidity quite as much as the first Independence Day. It is still dumb fun to watch while 99% of the genre, including far more popular and acclaimed movies (anything by JJ Abrams) is insufferable to me.
