Got me thinking more about clothes and plugsuits though -nte is better designed I guess tying a lot of stuff together- so you have things like kaworu playing Shinji's dopple and talking of life and death and yeah that makes the colors purely emotional signposting. Like taking a punch in the gut ...

I can't believe I forgot to mention it before, but Spec Ops: The Line is severely underrated IMO. Of all the games I've ever played, this one was the most similar to NGE. It starts off looking like a typical oorah military third-person shooter, but gradually turns into a complete mindfuck d...

My guess was, having white background was something of a shocker signpost with some black on them as a promise of dramatic turns so you don't really need to look at every other episode - just 15 to 24 (with occasional life stuff too). So for example yui is found somewhat alive into 01 in...

^granted, Shinji will realize he's even more evil than he thought and actually send mankind to hell. Unless he's put down in the process

Not sure you'll ever get 01 action after Q, it keeps going down (even after growing the will to pilot but yeah the moment you get dummy systems pilots become obsolete and are killed in final...I think).

Well anyway Lilin+ as in Lilin PLUS, an evolved Lilin. Still works. I forgot to mention the pillars: Angel Sealing Hex Glyph pillars being carried by ships surrounding the Wunder seem to be what is keeping Lilin alive, despite the harsh environment. It apparently repulses coreifying somehow, as we ...

Though, I do think that the significance of Shinji holding a red marble is to visually foreshadow all of the souls that GNR collects during Third Impact. Yes, it's a marble. But it might mean so much more in the context of the show. I think this is pretty close. I watched some eps again keeping...

Technically Shinji already did the "drifting in space without aging" thing while he was sealed in the tesseract. But I do think space could be an avenue for him going forward once all the Eva stuff is done. Kaji and Kaworu both told him he needed to find something that gave him happiness,...

It's been hard to find something actually hidden since 2009 but I guess Life is Strange is not popular around here.

Muddled in what way? The display is wide and open, with a minimalist HUD. It would be hilarious if it was muddled that way but I'm talking about the design part limiting or not having anything to do with the fps one. Granted, battlefront is not alone so mhe but I'll probably rant on it one ...
