Video Games / Re: What Are You Playing?
« on: September 17, 2017, 10:40:19 PM »
I hope i'm not the only one who played through samus returns already.
although at the ending my 3ds froze and i lost the progress i had to right after i got the baby metroid. just got to scavenge for all the expansions again lol.
so i must ask, did the game seem kind of short to anyone? or did it feel like the spread of upgrades wasn't consistent? I ended up getting the gravity suit and the plasma beam really close together but i don't know how everyone elses experience felt. I was personally bothered at how they got rid of one of the power bombs main functionalities with the aieon scanner, but i kind of understand the need for it. Maybe? I dunno i think a better design choice for the map might have been to give you the subsequent map for the area once you killed the metroids in that sector. Although i did really like the spider ball trick with the power bombs. that was neat.


So i went through and finished samus returns again and got every expansion, and i found that there IS a hard mode you can play after you beat it once. So i was pleasantly surprised for that. Also encountered a bug when going back through for the expansions. Sometimes if the power up item is just hidden in a block you have to break, it just won't register that it's there. So if anyone encounters that you just have to exit and re-enter the room. Probably related to offscreen entities loading because i also killed an enemy off-screen once and it continued walking forward and was basically a ghost.

I've been playing through Dragon quest 8 on my 3ds, it's pretty good. I got the ability to fly now so the world has really opened up. So i'm basically at the point where I've really got to start farming more hardcore. Really close to 90 minimedals, got the casino running again, and running back through the other towns doing sidequests basically.

I had watched the Scarlett Johansson ghost in the shell film with my dad (he just wanted to see her in the bodysuit) and i don't think it was anywhere as bad as some people had made it out to be. It certainly lacked in comparison to the other movies, and I don't remember all details, but i think they focused more on parts that the anime films didn't. for example, the whole deal with the organization trying to control her, i feel like the animated films were much more subtle on that. And the whole deal with her identity, i'm not sure how much of that was canon either.
If any of you have seen it and are familiar with the Ghost in the shell series let me know your thoughts.

well like i said, i thought he had some good points. not that the video itself was particularly outstanding or anything. But i don't know anything about all that artistic stuff, and im not very sharp when it comes to making criticisms or arguments. so lets just say im stupid lol  :ganishka:
jokes or not jokes aside, thanks for your input. I like seeing your varying opinions and i think it helps me become a smarter fan. regardless of how i feel like  :???: sometimes.

While we're talking about why the recent adaptation was total ass, i came across a youtube video that makes some good points about why it didnt work, and what would have worked better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6CJaChQ7rQ He makes the argument that the manga is a picturesque work, and they tried to adapt it as a dynamic work. Picturesque meaning its about the visual detail and not the motion in it. He argues that the 1997 anime and its style, colors, etc. were much more fitting. He also argued that the world of berserk is very gritty, grimy, and dirty, and cgi and 3d computer models are always very glossy and cant portray that grit.

I never realized just how bad the pacing was until i saw this episode. I haven't read back through the manga in a while but i feel like a huge chunk is missing from between the previous episode and the current. Anyone able to confirm?

thanks for the highlights walter. I was going to make the cannon hand post myself but it seems even though i had paint on this computer, it was removed or something. :schierke:
Edit: i forgot to add that that made it so i couldnt make my screenshot into a useable photo.

I have been playing pokemon moon and DQ8 for the last week.Both on my 3ds. not very far in pokemon tho because Dragon quest is so much more interesting. Because there's a story and an actual goal I'm aware of. As for pokemon i haven't played since diamond and pearl. I just got the waterium-Z gem so that's about where i'm at.

Yes, that's from Musou, but it only looks good when compared to this dumpster fire of an anime.
I suppose that's fair. Still i thought that it looked good. last time i saw grunbeld (before and not counting this anime) it was when i was emulating the ps2 game of berserk. Speaking of which i need to finish it still lol

If this anime was somehow an actual living person instead of a television program, I would most likely be in prison now. That is, if giving wet willies is illegal. I never checked. Either way I'd give this anime SUCH a wet willie. Guys you don't even know.
I mean if this anime was an actual living person i'm pretty sure a wet willie would be the least of its worries.

Saw this pop up in YouTube. I think it's from the musou game. Let's appreciate how good the cutscenes look.

There are many fails in last episode, but introduction of berserker armor was actually epic.
For the most part i thought it looked good don't get me wrong. It was just very jarring to me when they switched from the CGI to the picture. I agree they portrayed the raw power it unleashes. It certainly was really cool to see it animated. I was going to say i was looking for consistency but i just realized what that meant  :ganishka: Especially considering how this production has been going.

Nevermind. I don't know how filterkeys tuned on but its off now.

I know I said how disappointing it was seeing them use existing artwork for the last frame of the episode (not including the ed song) but I'm going to reiterate. If we analyze guts attacking with the berserk armor on, when he was inside of the monsters, it seems like his previous pose has no bearing on how he attacks to cut out of them. Not to mention how they really spent a lot of time with that cape fluttering in the wind. But all that buildup to his final armor mold, and they use pre-existing artwork to show what the berserk armor looks like. Like they just decided they were out of time to make a new model for the berserk armor head and just used google images.

Man I was hoping they'd actually try to animate the berserk armors transformation instead of reusing old art  :schierke:
But to be fair they were probably just playing it safe so they didn't get more backlash for doing really bad jobs at pivotal points.

The episode overall seemed okay I suppose. I hated that I literally couldn't tell what was on the screen for half this episode. I had my phones brightness all the way up too. And when guts was starting to kill the trolls the light flashing across the screen (his sword) I couldn't even tell it was his sword at first. Not until the troll bodies were flying and he came into the picture.
Let me rephrase that 1st sentence. The episode seemed okay story wise.

I think the phenomenon you're describing is known as "being on a set in a music video sequence."
Yeah you got it. Point is i hate that the instruments don't sync to the music. Otherwise whats the point in them even playing the instruments in the video. It's just a stupid little thing that bothers me.

One thing i always hate about these type of music videos is that the instruments they're playing don't always look like it matches with the music. Not that i would really know considering I've never played an instrument but still.

Episode 6 of season 2 i actually sat and watched for the second half and i noticed they fixed several of the problems that plagued the first season. At least in this instance.
1. The awful clang. They used a toned down version of it when guts cuts the 1st group of trolls in front of the church, and they even mixed it up with a couple other sound effects.
2. When he was telling the others to go and help the villagers i thought the voice acting was phenomenally better than last season. He actually had some difference in the tone of his voice and spoke like a real person. Basically he dropped the edge off the tone how he spoke for all of the 1st season.
3. Animation and camera movement is much better. Wouldn't say its great but certainly an improvement.
That's just what i noticed and what stood out to me.

I mean I like fast food, I do understand what you're saying. I already eat FF pretty often but I'm still young enough where i won't get fat from it. In a few years I'll have to start being a bit more careful. But if something like this was going to change my eating habits I'd have to be stupid enough to like it that much. With that said I'll just let it go and move on.

That't fair. I didn't specify everything. I just found he whole deal entertaining because they started making fan art. I was just looking to talk about it because of that same reason. :farnese: Anyways next time i'll try to do better.... I'm not great at putting my thoughts into words anyways. It's why i don't post too often lol

Edit: OK i'm gonna try to salvage this just shoot me down if it don't go well lol
So first post i was trying to introduce the topic, i was hoping people either already knew the deal or would google image.
2nd post i was trying to say the entertaining part that enlightened me to the whole situation which is why i like it, once again didnt provide enough information and here we are now trying to explain myself.

So does anyone else just love the whole deal with Wendy's? For those that don't know, Hardee's was giving Wendy's a hard time on twitter and Wendy's came in with the smug and savage comments. Look it up on google images it can tell you all you need to know. Anyways just the whole thing makes me so happy because it's all so entertaining. That and Wendy's is great anyways.

OCD.

some people think they have OCD just because they like keeping things clean. this sounds offensive and stupid.

1.) "My OCD is kicking in every time I see Zodd's horn."
I think its more of that they don't know what else to call it or its just easy to throw out there.

So i did kind of watch the episodes finally..... not really i just kind of put them on while i played video games. I didnt sit down and watch them like last season and because of that i noticed nothing that bothered me. Don't hit me  :farnese: If i keep hearing postive... errr... indifferent response about this season maybe ill st down and give it a chance.
Edit: There was one thing that bothered me actually. Were the trolls supposed to look so large? They seem to have made them larger.
