2013-05-21 00:32Dann of ThursdayYep, all of it. I imagine Wheeljack will be one of them since it doesn't make sense to just have him show up just the once.
It made it feel a whole lot more random yes and I like that they also had an explanation for why energon was on Earth. I suppose so and she does appear to have gotten slightly better.
I'll have to be on the lookout for that one. I'd recommend it and it's actually by Greg Weisman, who was also the creator and showrunner of Gargoyles and Young Justice. And was also cancelled after the second season despite having plans for a lot more. Seriously, that guy has the worst luck despite being so talented. Yeah, if he could keep those in check I'd imagine he'd be so much more happy and successful. Maybe he should take a chapter out of Soundwave's look as he seems to be doing quite well where he is. I guess it is hard to buy him ever becoming buddy buddy with them all.
I haven't gotten much farther on that one due to work, but am near the end of Pluto at least and quite enjoying it thus far. It's rather sad how a full movie production is completely shown up by an animated series made with 90's CG tech, but at least we got something good out of it. Haven't gotten to it yet and it may be a while as I'm trying to avoid juggling too many things.
2013-05-21 00:23Dann of ThursdaySame here as I actually have series that will be going most of the year. Oh? I'm not familiar with that show. Do you recommend? It doesn't seem too prevalent as yet and as mentioned, some at least seem to know how to use it well with the hand drawn. Ah, such beautiful work that we just don't see anymore. Probably so, but who can say how entertainment will change in the future? Agreed, moving on.
Well, at least there are other things to keep us occupied and the time between releases should help a little with the wait I suppose. And that's not even factoring in how long a series like this is likely to be...I sometimes hate that about monthly series.
Seems to be a talent of his at any rate. I was surprised when I read that since it's actually pretty different to have your protagonist be a guy starting to get to middle age. That it doesn't, though he wouldn't be much of an opponent if he couldn't put up some kind of a fight. Could be worse I suppose. Could make for some entertaining scenes at any rate, but it doesn't feel like it would make sense at this time with the situation going on. Yes, for the greater good and good soldiers are expected to make sacrifices.
It wouldn't surprise me if some of those in charge end up getting themselves killed to further him along on that path. What the cadets take from observing Bernd in action like this should be something to see as well along with their own experiences they'll have. Learning from one another would seem a hopeful outcome or more visionaries, perhaps like Bernd if it is right to call him that. There is that at least and hopefully it is something substantial.
Exactly and while it's hard to say how much of an effect the cadets' performance will have on this, it'll be one more factor that could help them in this area. True enough. The success of those projects certainly are something that could help his influence and standing with them all. Hard to say in the end I guess, and I do hope it gives some kind of interesting development or hints towards one.
2013-05-20 23:44Dann of ThursdayGah, word count again.
There is that I suppose, but then it'll be one more year probably with hopefully no big delays. It's hilarious to me that the main series ended almost five years to ago and it'll be seven in the end by the time this is over. Very much so, especially when we see knightmares we saw in the original series moving in ways we never saw before. That's the best kind of use for it I think and that Majestic Prince show is also doing a decent job of using cg for the machines in a way that isn't too intrusive I think. They're the lead characters in a Code Geass story. Suffering is all they can know :P But yeah, I'd definitely prefer a good ending for these two with Akito perhaps not being set on dying.
Same. Didn't have the same charm in the end, which lost my interest. Well, I suppose there wasn't any other way in the end. It's certainly much more interesting thus far, I can say that much.
A good conclusion is all I hope for. Sorry, sorry. I just try not to build myself up too much anymore.
They seem to be betting a lot on it from what I've heard and it really would be nice to start seeing some DC to counteract Marvel. I love both, but would like some more new adaptations. So long as he doesn't drop the ball with a project, I imagine that will continue. What I'm unclear on is whether they have plans to tie these TV projects like Arrow into it all. They apparently are planning another live WW show, but that seems like it would conflict with a movie for the character if they did that. I think I want an Aquaman and Flash feature most of all, though Aquaman seems like it would be easier than Flash in my mind. They are certainly the easiest to adapt out of their staple of choices, but as much as I love them I dearly want to see others.
Yeah, I might wait for word of mouth on it, but Watch Dogs is definitely what has my eye now. I actually like how under wraps this whole thing has been in regards to story thus far.
There is a lot of evidence pointing to that rumor of it having become FFXV to being true and I do have much more faith in the staff on that game as opposed to those on XIII. Speaking of XIII, what bugs me most is that the mythology shared by all the XIII games is actually rather interesting with the other games aside from XIII showcasing it in a much more interesting way I think. But anyway, I actually would like to have Versus and XV, perhaps based on that tech demo they've showed off so long as Toriyama isn't involved with it.
I imagine we'll see LR before Versus, but just seeing some new footage of the latter with perhaps a season and year of release would be fantastic. Hell, I'd love to hear something about Type-0, whether it be an online release or a Vita remake since impressions I've make it sound right up my alley. I'm actually looking forward to those HD remasters as for one we're getting the Final Mix editions and it'd be nice to replay those.
She does seem to like them though she has her issues. I showed her the Spoony reviews of it recently and she actually agreed with the vast majority of that guy's complaints. I'm actually planning on replaying the old PSOne games as I thought back and realized that despite owning them, I don't believe I actually did proper playthroughs of any of them. Do you have a favorite or least favorite of the series by any chance?
Those are the shooters I make exceptions for as well as I find the experience typically much more engrossing. You hadn't seen it till now? Probably for the better as having seen that made me wish it was out sooner. Liking the look of things thus far and I love that Robert Carlyle is back as he's much more hammy and entertaining as Drac!Gabriel. Yeah, there was something off about it and I definitely agree that the change of character and venue is a positive one and hope to see actual gameplay at E3.
Sorry about splitting that up by the way.
2013-05-20 23:13Dann of ThursdayIndeed we should Great to see they got the whole game cast as well.
Oh, I hadn't noticed the new one. I'm a little behind after the second game honestly. I wonder if they might move to the PS4 with future games, though I suppose the PS3 will be the norm for a while.
Edit: Saw this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skzYw...ature=youtu.be
Really liking the new guy from the looks of it and hey, we get Yuki too! Though I don't know if he plays too differently from his other incarnation.
Usually they are, though I've seen some unique examples where the anime only takes some of the basis and characters, but constructs a completely different plotline right from the start. I suppose the first FMA anime could be considered an example of that when I think about it. Indeed, sometimes it can work for the anime to cut the fat as it were and ending there for SAO seems the best. Shounen Anime don't seem to run into this sort of problem as often since many of them are long runners although that of course isn't the norm, but those qualities are the same ones I look at as well when it comes to adaptations. I saw a few episodes on Toonami, but not very much. I may check it out at a later time though as I did like the overall design of the series and what I did see was interesting. Any in particular that spring to mind? I kind of wish that perhaps they'd just adapt enough, leave off, and have a sequel series down the line when there is more material to work with, which I seem to recall a few series doing. I could certainly go with less harem and incest shows, I can tell you that.
Well, we do seem to have again headed into darker waters with some this most recent episodes, which I suppose was bound to come and doing so at the mid point makes sense. I only read it from someone who had seen a comment by them so I cannot confirm, but I have a real hard time seeing this being a tragedy as it simply doesn't fit with their comments on what they wanted to do with this series. At best, I can see Ledo dying or leaving with maybe a return down the line. I really think there's something going on here since the Hideauze or Whalesquid as the Gargantians seem to know it as, appears to be something they are familiar with so I don't think Ledo brought it with him. It's far too contrived that there are two similar species that humanity has contact with so there's some sort of explanation there that I think is linked to the ruins of Humanity. I hadn't looked at it from that perspective, but that does make sense given what was going on there. I really am pulling for Ledo and Amy though. They even had what could amount to their first fight here. I also like the attention to detail with Ledo's skin having tanned a bit from his exposure to sunlight.
Is that a Valvrave dig I see? I do think you can only play that conflict for so long before it does start to get a little old, but with what they've touched on in some of the previous series and then with this one where you have individuals who are sick of both sides in a way, it works. It'd certainly be interesting to see where they could take it from here as I think it could be kind of cool to see perhaps a series maybe focusing not so much on war but on both sides dealing with terms of peace or something like that.
Garden of Sinners short? I felt some of the movies went on a bit too long at times myself, but yeah it sort of left something to be desired in a lot of cases. The F/S Night anime is a butchering really, but you really shouldn't ever expect a happy ending from Type-Moon works. There's only one ending where Saber actually lives in the games and that's a threesome thing with Rin as well, which isn't a bad deal for Shirou I suppose. Fate/Zero was a fantastic adaptation, despite being depressing as all hell. I don't think there was a fighting game with Garden, though there was one that had characters from it. And of course we now have that adaptation just as we were discussing it Same here though perhaps there are times when they overuse the same VAs even if they are good. Good lord, I can't imagine how expensive that would be, but yes the subbing job on that series was fantastic.
That is a turning point and I really do want to learn more about these people as well as the hint that there are a lot more of them. But in a show like this there is going to be those kind of sacrifices and all you can hope for is that we don't lose too many. They all depend on one another and those three do deserve it far more than anyone else I agree. I'm not even sure they are taunting honestly since most of them seem rather mindless or like infants, but it is certainly damn unsettling. I'll laugh if they don't know much either, but recent events imply they know something and at this point any info would be nice to have. Yes, back to the grave with it.
2013-05-20 02:15Dann of ThursdaySpeak of the devil:
Arc System Works also appears to be returning to Guilty Gear and the initial trailer looks beautiful.
Will have responses up tomorrow
2013-05-16 23:26Dann of ThursdaySo, I finished Season One of Prime. It really was very good, though I do rather wish there were more Autobots and Decepticons to increase the cast, though I'm sure that will come in season two.
The twist with Unicron I did not see coming and that was a great finish to the season. I also liked how the human characters largely contributed though Miko's recklessness was rather irritating many times.
I have to say my favorite may be Starscream though. On further thinking on it, Blum's work here sounds quite similar to his Green Goblin voice from SSM. I love how this Starscream is actually rather competent, but still manages to fail and not have anyone take him seriously. I do wonder what might have happened if Arcee hadn't lost it and attacked him.
2013-05-13 23:56Dann of ThursdayBoth have their advantages and it's a shame to see barely anyone seems to want to take advantage of those inherent to hand drawn anymore. They have been using more CG lately though It is strange to see that being the case and it would be nice to those emerge here again.
And a long wait it will be.
Well, it's pretty likely he'll mess up here and there so all we can do is watch what happens from here. Maybe I should take another look at them and Bernd doesn't look that old either I guess. His demeanor certainly gives the impression of arrogance, though how well he can back it up is yet to be seen. Hopefully we get some more translations fairly soon. That's hilarious then that he managed to screw himself over in a sense. I'm sure he's very happy for the lack of distraction
He can't always be there to help him out or else he could become a crutch of sorts for Bernd. Fate is always so kind to Bernd in these affairs it seems and it'll certainly be something to see him try to get out of this mess. They seem too locked into their ways in some respects that they don't take into account the methods of others and are paying the price for it. I am very interested in learning just what they were speaking about and him rising too rapidly would certainly ring alarm bells to other members high up.
Ah, that's what I meant by them being desired, though my wording was rather poor. Their resources and territory are of course what Baselland is wanted for and the people only perhaps as potential soldiers to work with if that. Yeah, he'd certainly gain respect in Weiben I think if they don't simply give all his success as being on account of Bernd. And given how the people of Baselland seem to regard Ryner, they will likely just see it as him becoming another dog as you say. I can't quite think of what he could do to accomplish especially with regards to the Army Chief. Yes, that's definitely the best way to do it in a series like this, though I'd expect some more filler like chapters at some point. Probably not for a while given the situation then.
2013-05-13 23:29Dann of ThursdayGah, I hate that word count limit at times.
Geez, that was such a wasted opportunity and even more so since some of the casting was actually pretty good in a lot of areas. I can't say I blame him not wanting to get locked down in that sort of thing given the kind of projects he likes to do. The Marvel method really was a good way to do it, but I understand them perhaps not wanting to copy them. I can't believe it's that soon now
I like the pirate idea, but just feel done with it all so yeah, hopefully Watch Dogs delivers. It's just sad to look at them now especially with how they appear to be responding to the lack of success. I'm not even confident Versus is going to be any good anymore, but hopefully the PS4 rumor is true and I'm especially curious if the rumor that Sony is helping with publishing it is true. And don't forget Lightning Returns My sister sadly plans to finish XIII and then move onto XIII-2 despite my warnings against. Metro does look interesting, though I've never been much for shooters save a few exceptions. LoS2 is one I'm also really looking forward to and hope it ends up improving on the last game to deliver a good finale to the LoS series. Second Son is definitely one I'm very interested in seeing more of and I hope to see some gameplay soon.
2013-05-13 23:17Dann of ThursdayYeah, it can be tiring, but I find it tends to be worth it in the long run.
It was alright but a shame it couldn't be more in the end so yeah. Eh, from what I've heard, the author seems to explore different genres while moving the characters forward, but yes the place the anime ended on was felt the most appropriate. It's pretty much the risk with any adaptation, which is why I often feel a bit hesitant to follow them unless it looks like a really good effort. I don't believe I've ever seen Casshern Sins actually, though I remember seeing parts of it here and there. Very true, though there are times where I'll read a work and think how great it would be to see an anime adaptation of it, especially if it is finished or near finished. Still, I'd say we've had some good original stuff.
Yes, RandomC's reviews have some great observations there and the variety is one of the things I like so much about it, though I fear the first episode sort of gave people this impression it was going to be something else. Well, the only episodes he actually wrote are the first and last and I saw someone say the ending will be white-gray, though that's not confirmed and I have no idea what that even means. The former is preferable, though the latest episodes raises some questions I had at the start about the Hideazu. The latest is also an example where fanservice can have a point, or at least the fanservice near the end had an important point in developing Ledo.
Heh, Tomino seems to have much the same opinion on Victory, despite many seeming to view it as some masterpiece though I can't attest. Yeah, Sunrise tends to be pretty free about that sort of thing though I can't say I always agree with what they pull. Well, it would make sense to pull out all the stops for the finale so all we can do is hope they go with that. I rather like Garden of Sinners myself, but there is so much padding and filler in those films. BlazBlue would be an awesome anime, though all the time travel hijinks might be hard to convey possibly though I suppose you could do an episode just exploring that aspect with Rachel. Funimation at least seems to get it with their sets and generally reasonable prices. Now that getting announced for official release in the US would be a surprise :O
Yeah, there's generally a sense of doom and gloom given the setting, but also that things are changing now. I can't see it ending that badly, though Eren's survival might be suspect. I actually like the focus on how the Titans don't make any sense and that the scouting legion's job is mainly to get information, which does seem to be coming through if you read between the lines of events of recent chapters. Neither did I, though my sister did and confirmed it was pretty stupid. Yep, best case I can manage all that, though I haven't made much progress the last few days. Should be able to make some more this week though.
Ah, well that's good, but then it'll be another year until the next I bet. The CG looks alright at times, but it's largely just odd to look at. Sunrise seems to be doing a lot of CG lately and it does work sometimes like in Tiger and Bunny, but here not so much. I'm totally betting they seem to make it out alright and then Suzaku shows up and kills them without really being aware of it.
Beast Machines was really weird in a lot of ways, though it did have some good points. Just not the same feel as the original though. Dinobot was indeed awesome and I liked all the Shakespearean references they did with him. I knew there were some other movies that weren't too good, but I can't say I'm that surprised to learn that. Will do on that account. Oh I did and it turns out the place I stopped at was the second episode sadly enough. I can already appreciate Welker's changes to Megatron too and Steve Blum's Starscream is very fun to watch. Gotcha.
Wow, that doesn't feel right. I seem to recall Animated ending in a similar manner on a cliffhanger. Watch us not even see him next season either
2013-05-12 16:44KirarakimWell don't get me wrong I understand that you are going to see boobs and behind in belly dancing, but the way these elements were the main focus of the dance was what bothered me (well stomach was too but that makes a bit more sense in context). There were actually very few full body shots during the dance.
If that was the intention of the scene (and I am not arguing for or against) then the way the scene is presented actually distracts me from that.
Also another thing that kind of bothers me is while Amy at least is a fully realized character, her friends have been mainly used for these fanservice type scenes.
