Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

Just realized that EVA-13 turns red for a split second before becoming a Radiant Giant. Maybe there is something to this Urizen after all. Unit-13 turns red for a second because it's whole body is becoming core material (It's white appearance soon after is just more intense version of core material...

Re: How come there hasn't been any sort of introspection in the Rebuilds?

These new movies are mostly focused on showing things in real life instead of long, surreal dialogue/monologue heavy scenes of the original. Although, Shinji has few train sequences similar to NGE, Rei Q has identity crisis and questions her nature, but it happens in real life. Same thing with Asuka...

Re: Mari's vow to Shinji

Mari might turn out to be one of the few people that can actually help Shinji. On a meta level, Mari's and Shinji's possible friendship in the final movie will probably represent Shinji (and the audience) moving on from his past relationships and forming new ones with new people. Rei Q will likely ...

Re: Souls Series (Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, Bloodborne)

I'd rather they had just done a straight port to other consoles. Yeah, I would have preferred this too. I do try to enjoy the game (If I end up buying it at some point that is) as it's own unique experience alongside the original and don't view it as something that is trying to replace or improve u...

Re: Souls Series (Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, Bloodborne)

Unfortunately I agree with you in pretty much everything you said. The change in architecture is the most nonsensical to me. I've seen people in the net arguing that this is somehow the "true vision" they wanted back then, like Gothic arches and vegetation were some impossible thing to do...

Re: Souls Series (Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, Bloodborne)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TMs2E6cms4 I do not like the upcoming Demon's Souls Remake at all. The game is too colorful and it lacks bloom effect that gave the impression that Boletaria was being consumed by the fog. Architecture has been changed from early medieval norman architecture to late...

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

Ah, okay. Since this thread is partially about which Eva units/pilots are specific Adams, do you think that units-00, 02, 03, 04, 05 and 08 are related to certain "Adam-units" or pilots (Mari, Eva-05 and 08 seems to have some similarities to Mark.06 based on the image you provided) or are ...

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

I threw together a compilation of visual comparisons between Mari, Eva-05, and Mark.05 (guest-starring the Spear of Cassius, Eva-08, and Lilith). This would have been useful earlier in the thread, when I matched the pilots to their respective Adams, but better late than never, I suppose. The Lilith...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

Eva 3.0 had similar effects on me, it completely shocked me to the core when I saw it for the first time as a teenager, but it never made me this suicidal. You should go to a therapist.

Re: Currently Playing 5: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder!

Yeah, but when does that ever happen? I can't think of a single time a bad game was remade. I think a remake of a mediocre/bad game can happen only if it's part of successful franchise. The original Nier had pretty mediocre gameplay, but it is basically getting a remake (or remake-lite) due to Auto...

Re: Currently Playing 5: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder!

I guess the only way to not make a remake seem lazy and cash grab is to remake something that was mediocre or bad to begin with.

Re: Currently Playing 5: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder!

I haven't played Resident Evil, but the story seems to be the part people remember (plus the athmosphere, etc). People play Resident evil for the atmosphere and gameplay. Resident evil 3 remake cut few areas, gameplay mechanics, puzzles, costumes, branching choices, endings and few other things. St...

Re: Currently Playing 5: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder!

^ This is the same mentality that applauses Anime adaptations of Manga for basically using the Manga as storyboards. The staff has to decide what makes sense in a new version of the game. The old version still exists. The fact that they cut certain parts is not a problem in itself. I don't know...T...

Re: Currently Playing 5: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder!

Loved Resident evil 3 remake . After seeing how much they changed and cut from the original game, I can say that fans of the original are justified for being furious at the game and Capcom. If they're going to remake 4, I will probably not buy it because I feel like they're going to do the same thin...

Reichu, I don't know if I have missed, but have you already covered why Mari and Asuka are seemingly unable to act as impact triggers in some other thread is it something you will address in a future part? If Mari is related to Mark.06 and Kaworu in a certain way then she should be able to trigger a...

Re: Thrice Upon A Humanity: The Deep Lore of NTE [WIP]

What do you mean by "symbolism"? The "serpent" that turns into an "apple" thing? If the 12th angel represents the serpent/apple and is part of Lilith and her resurrection, then what about 10th angel? Does the whole Eva-01/10th angel/Rei - Lilith sequence have anything ...

Re: Thrice Upon A Humanity: The Deep Lore of NTE [WIP]

This, naturally, raises a LOT of pretty weird questions about why this specific Angel is being used for this purpose — like, what’s its original “pre-Lilith” nature? Is there any way to know? (Yes, possibly, but I’ll hold onto that speculah for now.) Plus there’s the weirdness of the serpent form e...

Re: Why didn't Misato (or anyone) tell Shinji anything in 3.0?

Combination of distrust, Mark.09 taking Shinji away too soon and the fear of telling the truth.
