Agreed on all ends with you.  Not sure how I feel about this movie yet.



Yoda was also the big highlight for me.  Loved that his behavior with Luke went unchanged. Followed by the sudden Luke-going-bye bye scene left me salty.  Beautiful way sure.  But still.  Maybe holding onto Luke for almost 40 years have something to do with that lol.

If Nintendo manages to build an online support as current (ps/xbox like) I'm in.  My biggest issue with Nintendo has always been purchasing the same games over and over without any kind of emulation or backward compatibility in whatever console may be available.  I'm at the point in my life that I do not have the time to dedicate long hours on gaming, so the Switch perhaps is the answer to my current position.

Pretty much the only single shot I have enjoyed through this entire series.  I see flaws, but still love the look.

Berserk Anime / Re: 2016 Berserk TV series: Episode 2

So I finally caught up with this new series, and well... Can't say my bar was high.  I'm glad that they decided to continue regardless of how good or bad the Golden Arc films were.  But like most people here, I'd say this episode felt much better as far as pacing than the previous one.  The use of music however is starting to bother me.  Like mentioned in the cast, they added the heroic theme WITH lyrics in the most inappropriate times.  Don't they have access to raw recordings and keep it instrumental?  Unleash the Hirasawa voice at a time of real triumph?  And oh how I missed the Blood and Guts theme...  :schierke:

Perhaps I am nit-picking, but it also seems that there's a lot of miss use of their budget (also brought up by Aaz).  Instead of giving us a 13 second 180 degree pan of Guts walking around, use it at a time of confrontation or battle.  Isn't that one of the few strengths of watching an animated feature? Motion?   

Regardless of all this, I already know a few people that got into it and are now going back to both 97 anime and the recent films as well. So on that matter, I guess their project is getting an audience.

Finally was able to watch it today and frankly, the 1st 10 minutes made me forget about the prequels which is an accomplishment on it's own.

One thing that I truly appreciate is Kylo Ren's position on self conflict in wanting to be joining the dark side. I find his praise towards Vader quite fitting given the circumstances on how fans have carried the character for all these years.  Though I don't know what the writer's intentions were, but it's a nice little detail that I appreciated. Force tantrums was also an interesting detail and displayed exactly on what level Kylo Ren truly is when he's in a pickle. If anything, I'd say it felt natural. I do agree with Griffith in the statement of him being beaten by a fresh-out-a the midiclorian meter (pun intended).  But I look forward in what else he's bringing to the table

Finn and Rey certainly made a good mark and I look forward on their developments as well.  Though I find a bit hard to swallow Rey's 30 minute self-teaching and development of the force.  I'm sure I'm not alone in this remark. I'm hoping for a not-so out of the bag origin that could support her errrrr atributes?  No complaints about Finn in any way.

The Solo thing really hit me only because I really didn't give it any thought pre-release. I'm not sure if I am at peace with it (starting to hate the confrontation walkway's with no railings). And though I can understand why, I'm not sure if the timing was right.

The overall experience was a positive one in my book.  I didn't mind the New Hope blueprint they used for this...Well, except for the Starkiller part (others have already expressed the dislike on the matter).  And I certainly look forward to the next ones to come.  The movie has flaws, but I feel relieved that we now are passed Return of the Jedi from long years of wishful thinking.

PS.  BB8 was a huge plus.

Just finished listening and thank you and everyone involved in making this.  For the record, That intro had my drink coming out of my nose several times.  Well done good sir...Well done.  Couldn't have asked for a better one myself.

My one assumption regarding the Casca rape and comments read in the past, was the lack of observation between what was really going on VS. The thought of knowing Casca's deep feelings (not necessarily love) towards Griffith.  And turning a blind eye onto the moment itself with an appetizer of chopped questions that could relate towards those feelings in particular without giving any thought of her seeing herself being raped at the time?  I'm not one to get deep into this, and by any means I am trying to explain reasons for those comments in the past... Simply my one logical explanation towards the issue that went through my head.  Or it could just a the typical Bro response of "Yeah dude... She loved the D". Who knows... We can be pigs.

Favorite girl on girl interaction would be Flora and Schierke.  Short lived, but made me wonder what was life with those two. 

Again, thank you all 3 for the cast, and look forward to hear some more in a near future.

Welcome to SK.NET, and thank you for this track!  I really dig your talent, and I hope you keep sharing it with us.

You are trying really hard to read between lines when you don't even know this girl very well.  Rule #1, the ball will always be on her side of the court.  Like most have said, you will know one way or the other if she's into you... But don't hover, whether it's in person or in texts.

And the gang is back!  Welcome back gentlemen, and hopefully we will keep hearing from you guys more often.  As always I enjoyed it.

Griffith:  I'm probably going to get stoned out of this forrum, but I actually decided to get Diablo III when available for the PS4.  Sooo... Start spamming tips  :serpico:

Walter: On the next cast, give us a little update on your kid and daddy life!

Man of Steel was the action flick I wanted to see for a long time.  His story being well known, I wasn't betting on Snyder to go too deep into him, but rather just splash him with eye candy galore.  With Supes having to go toe-to-toe with multiple foe's and actually portraying ridiculous amounts of liability damage that would take away years of sleep to any insurance accounts manager, was exactly what I had an appetite for and expected.  Didn't care nor expected the name Nolan to either influence or just being used as the tipical marketing BS most of us despise reading in a trailer.  I did however enjoyed some of the changes made from the known story as far as Superman DNA that made him stand out to other fellow Kryptonians. But the drama and results of this tittle's plot fell short... Not surprised.  Overall as said before, I wanted to see a brawling Superman and it's exactly what I got out of it.  With that expectation lacking in previous adaptations, or at least to a more 'believable' special effect based sequence.  Dare I say it's the only thing that saved this movie.  But if you are looking to see a well portrayed Kal-El in full circle, this film can dissapoint.  However, the actor did played a good role as both Clark/Superman.

I'm going to start playing Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII as soon as my Memory Stick Pro Duo arrives (I ordered a PSP-3000 the other day, not knowing that the memory card was not only a requisite, but wasn't included with the system itself...fuuuuuuck...).

Despite what media says, I enjoyed that game.  Granted, it goes into un-wanted places story-wise, you'll end up wanting ro re play FF7 at the ending.

So after all the praises, I gave in and bough The Last of Us.  With only 2 hours of playtime, I got sucked in on the first minutes of this game.  Truly a masterpiece in the narrative side.  I strongly suggest those who own a PS3 to give this one a shot. It could be my favorie PS tittle of this generation.

My wife reffered this Golden Age as "The most expensive shitty hentai" and that we were all lucky to have witness such thing. 

As for the Podcast, good show guys.  It is in fact frustrating to see these films and wonder how much better could this have been if handled properly. But as a result like mentioned before, is the feeling that this project was just bad work on a high budget.  I really would've rather them spending that money into a better developed series if anything or just not doing it at all.  But for those who truly enjoyed it, good for you. 

As for E3 I hear you there Walter.  It was exciting to see these 2 companies go toe-to-toe for the sake of entertainment alone.  I myself am looking forward what this whole indy game claim that Sony keeps showing off is going to bring.

Berserk Anime / Re: Berserk Golden Age Arc III: Descent [Review]
« on: June 20, 2013, 01:23:15 PM »
So... In the end we were right on the sudden cut straight to the sneaking in Griffith rescue scene.  Well, at least they didn't just mention Charlotte for helping them eh?  The facial expressions played a huge role in this film.  Both for good and bad.  We can choose about 50+ scenes that this trilogy missed the core personality of most characters, but when they (finally) hit a right note? It works well. I'm referring to Griffith's rude awakening scene that really stood out in a good way (for once). Though I can see people not agreeing with me, for a moment I truly felt Griffith's despair as he flaps his arms into the water.  Another would be Casca's facial expression at the beginning of the Eclipse.  And speaking of the Eclipse...

What's with the music?!  I never thought I would bring myself to compare both new and old anime... But I truly missed Hirasawa in the entire sequence.  We however get to enjoy a mix between random genres that really throws off the atmosphere as a whole.  New genre?  Vortex Jazz!   

It saddens me how low these films have gotten.  I have no clue on what this company is trying to accomplish, but it's not working for me.  If there was ever hope of a better animated Berserk version than the 1st one?  These people made sure this didn't happen in my lifetime.  Thanks Studio 4c!

Walter, loved your review btw.

Personally, I was impressed with MS lineup.  They really put up a fight with literally almost zero talk and just a list of games.  However, this whole always online ordeal along with the 499.99 tag screwed it up.  And keep in mind, that I lean more on the Sony side.  As for PS4, they played it well... But not as exciting in the AAA games as many I would assume expected.  Their indie game selection however was impressive.  I'm hoping they continue this momentum and stay true to their word.

It's works like these that add so much to this forum asside from it's obvious purpose.  It did got me by surprise, and enjoyed it all the way though.  Loved the music selection as well, but I think the one small detail that pretty much made me spit out my drink was Aazealh's still image and contribution to this.  And off course the caressing of Ricardo's face in midst self-introduction was another personal favorite of mine.  My thanks to Gobs, Grail and anyone who was involved in this project. It made my day for sure.

I admit, my interest ended along with MGS4.  I enjoyed the game, even at it's weirdest moments.  But I somehow feel very excited about this game. I enjoyed the music in this trailer that made feel fresh.

« on: March 26, 2013, 01:09:57 AM »
On the panel, Hudson and Co. stated that the Citadel was their final "hurrah" for Mass Effect. And I'll strongly recommend it to any ME fan.  A new team is already working on this new "tittle" in which will be after the events of Mass Effect, but there won't be a Shepard.  At least this was confirm via IGN website.  In short?  They are probably going to fuck it up.  But hey!  We'll always have Blasto.

The Hudson team's new project is always a welcome thought.  In hopes that they have learned from the ME trilogy, and I am looking forward to their next creation.

Sorry for the late reply =(.  That puppy was a complete trip to play with.  Clearly I don't own one, but I was able to play with it in 2011 and it's a good toy.  I am not aware of the aftermath of this product.  And I've only seen it in one club in Chicago.  You can even write or draw on the glass while playing the music.  But the one issue it had at the time I played with it was that if the lens of the projector below the glass got dirty or stained by anything?  I would mess up bad.  But it's a nifty toy.  One I wish I had in my house for personal use.  But I'd still feel like this new generation of DJ's are cheating  :slan:.

Thanks for the congratulations and well wishes everyone. I am glad to join the brotherhood and indeed, we're already running into complications from the dreaded "wedding season." It'll all work out though. :griffnotevil:
And passing down the torch we say:  Be the wooden indian and say "yes dear".  Make sure you tell lucky future Mrs. Griffith that not matter how well planned it is... There's always going to be complications or something may not go as planned. Therefor it's important that both of you enjoy it no matter what.
