    Well, that's because Reckoner is an uncultured cretin who doesn't understand that moe is a superior, advanced art form and making dumb FPSes about Badass McBadass saving AMERICA is not.

    I used to occasionally play FPSes online but since I entered university in 2005 for time reasons I've relegated it to playing at the occassional LAN party only, so I pretty much missed MW1 multiplayer wise. And even before that I was never a particularly serious player. I did play a bit of Counterstrike back in high school but preferred Battlefield 1942 (particularly with the Desert Combat mod) and Command and Conquer: Renegade.

    Stuff I've tried at LAN parties… I did some 6 on 6 COD1 at one point around 2006 and enjoyed it quite a bit. I did try MW1 but we didn't have the player count to make it worthwhile at the time. I also think I might have found it too fast and "twitch" for my taste, much as I found BF3 when I tried it recently. Though it's possible my problem is I'm a guy who plays FPSes at a few LANs a year going up against guys who attend my LANs but also play online outside them.

    Anyway, in that case I can see your "same damn game" evaluation making sense as I'm not sure there's been a major shake up of the COD multiplayer formula since MW1, just tune ups. The ex-COD guys at Respawn, on the other hand, do appear to be trying to do something a bit different from COD.

    BTW, as I mentioned to Triple_R I'm going to be winding down my PM and VM conversatios over the coming days, need to seriously concentrate on schoolwork, at least until I've finished the exam for my toughest course in early December and possibly until I'm through my other courses too. Because one of my courses this semester is hardcore mode.

    My girlfriend is really into White Album 2 right now. I like it but not to the extent I like something like EF or Hyouka as it doesn't cater to my "tastes" quite as well as those shows did.

    I started as a Setsuna fan but I've since flip flopped to Touma. My girlfriend was surprised I didn't go for Touma to begin with since her personality is very similar to one of my favourite VN characters ever, Tsugumi from Ever 17.

    ***

    You keep comparing KyoAni shows to Call of Duty games - does that make Yamakan and Ordet the equivalent to Respawn?

    (That actually is a wrinkly in the analogy, BTW... Infinity Ward bled a lot of staff to Respawn after Modern Warfare 2 came out.)

    Anyway, I'm not sure what I think of the analogy. Allow me to summarize the Infinity Ward CoD games briefly:

    COD 1 and 2: Makes the player feel like a cog in a war machine that could chew them up any second.
    Modern Warfare: Feels pretty similar, except instead of WWII you have jingoistic Americans kicking a hornet's nest and creating a chaotic situation that could kill your character. Which considering it was released during the Bush presidency, felt pretty fresh and relevant at the time.
    Modern Warfare 2-3, Ghosts (relying on media coverage for MW3 onward here): OMG those dastardly villians managed to find a way to bring the great superpower, AMERICA to its KNEES!!!! AMERICA is under ATTACK!!!! And only you, BADASS McBADASS and your team of BIG DAMN HEROES can SAVE AMERICA!!!

    In other words, I don't think Infinity Ward (or what's left of it, anyway) has ruined the series by doing the same thing over and over. They've ruined the series by doubling down on a really crappy and honestly dumb direction for it.

    The Kyoto analogy only really works if you take K-On (which came out in 2009 - same as Modern Warfare 2) as the turning point and ignore the "against the grain of the era" productions like Lucky Star, Disappearance, and Hyouka that don't fit the pattern. Or in the alternative, I guess you could consider Hyouka the last hurrah for KyoAni, but I it's only been like a year since then so it feels a bit early to judge for me. Although I suppose their releasing three fairly low-key moe shows since can be paralleled to Activision's insistence on having a new COD every year.

    Listen to the bloopers from the last podcast - it's a thing with Xumbra (the techmaster) and the anime Amnesia, which had a scene with the heroine locked in a cage by one of the "routes". He was pretty weirded out by it and we've basically never stopped needling him (although we all loathe Amnesia to bits).

    Actually it does.

    And why do Kyoani fanatics still exist? That's as outdated as School Days or Sc2 and esports. xD Living in past glory is no way to go.

    Ah that is too bad, yeah SC2 have been on the downside lately, but this tournament makes me feel rather hopeful about the future.

    Well, I certainly don't expect to change their minds on the episode itself, lol.

    But I did want to raise the HSI Episode 3 comparison, because I haven't seen an anime episode be as polarizing as KnK Episode 6 since HSI Episode 3. I'm glad you appreciated the comparison.

    Thanks for the support on the KnK thread.

    Are you watching WCS grand final? The match between JD and Dear was sick.

    You call that slander? It was an honest fact!

    Unless you do have an interest in posteriors? The thought of "Archon's posterior" raced in my mind for a second, as that may be what you're only interested in. Am I correct?
