Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Berserk Musou (PS3, PS4, PC)
« on: February 22, 2017, 03:06:09 AM »
Got it!

Heisenberg approves.


Skully wants to play too.


Update: So I just finished playing it for about 2 hours.  I didn't keep up with all the previews/reviews about the game, so this was a pretty new, going-in-blind experience for me.  Wasn't sure quite to expect.  But my initial impressions are generally favorable!  In a nutshell:

- I liked this game more than Hyrule Warriors, by a long shot.  Reason is, the game had an actual story.  And I'll use spoiler tags in case people are sensitive to this. The game starts off at the eclipse (which is strange), and Guts has his Berserker Armor already, but this scene/level is really more like the tutorial part.  After which, it starts where the anime trilogy started.  A castle siege and then eventually Bazuso.  After which, the encounter with the Band, Carcus, Casca, Griffith and so forth.  The story elements as well as the cut scenes really flowed well!  The cut scenes fit right in with this game.
- The musou genre totally fits with Berserk!  I mean that might be a Captain Obvious statement, but really there are SO MANY enemies on screen at once, sometimes you even lose track of where your character is.  This is actually a really cool thing.  You get that sense of being overwhelmed and surrounded.  And man oh man, as the game goes on you learn more special moves, and MY GOODNESS some of them are so vicious.  I found myself reallllly enjoying these attacks.  They were so satisfying to pull off.  It was pretty awesome!
- This is probably common knowledge, but they reused scenes from the anime trilogy in the game and what's kinda cool about it is that they've replaced the original movie soundtrack with their own soundtrack, and seriously some of the new music pieces are better than the movie pieces.  Sometimes in the trilogy, the music was too overbearing or in your face.  The game soundtrack is much more subtle and I feel like fits the mood more accurately.  I am pleasantly surprised.
- The graphics are quite impressive as well!  I mean, Guts and co look pretty damn good, imho.  And the in-game graphic cut scenes + voice acting does a decent job.  I was genuinely getting enveloped in the game.
- Finally, the last thing I will say is overall the game didn't feel stale after 2 hours of play.  I think this game is legit fun, and keep in mind, I've never been a Dynasty Warriors fan prior to this.  I got Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U but I played it twice and never picked it up again.  Berserk though... it's really working for me!  So hopefully more people will get it and enjoy it along side me!

Well, I ended up taking some pictures today for the AOW Winter Journey photo contest.  I had to move a display case and some statues out of my room this weekend because my heat unit needs fixing and technicians are coming tomorrow to install a new one.  So I figure, might as well take some photos!  It's been a while anyways.  Most of these you've already seen on my site, but always nice to see them in a different light.

Actually this is one statue with multiple switch outs so it can be displayed in a variety of ways. You will notice the base can be changed up as well. Puck is placed in different locations. Also there will be a third head that hasn't been shown yet.

Oh interesting!!  Good to know!  That makes life much easier then, haha.

Price range will be around $750 I guess.

$750 would put AOW to shame, but I'm guessing it'll be around the $1000 mark.

Soooooo beautiful.  The likeness is fantastic.  But the base and the details is what puts it over the top.  But why make 2 variants!  Don't make me buy both!!   :judo:  Hehe, but of the two, I prefer the left one, where Guts has his sword downwards.  Well the right one is more epic though.  UGH WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO ME?!

And wow, after seeing the below video, you really get the sense of HOW MASSIVE this statue is.  1/4 and with such a large base.  Truly a feast for the eyes.

Here's the video! https://www.facebook.com/100007672007716/videos/1808379132761136/

And finally Griffith!

Some pretty cool displays coming in for AOW's Winter Journey display contest: http://www.art-of-war.jp/page/26

This pic is cool.  Let's just hope a visitor doesn't decide to sit down on the chair too.  :isidro:

I know this isn't a "deals" thread, but bestbuy.com has their $25 off $100 + free shipping deal if you use Visa Checkout (which is just a simple way to pay with your visa card).  Plus if you have a Gamers Club subscription with Best Buy (I just picked one up because of all the Nintendo Switch games/console/accessories I'm buying), you can save 20% off the Berserk game too.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/berserk-and-the-band-of-the-hawk-playstation-4/5705388.p?skuId=5705388

So I picked this up for $47 (+ free preorder bonus dlc costume pack as we mentioned before) and a Switch Pro Controller.  Saved $38 bucks!

Quick cell phone shot of the set up in my new house.  Don't have everything out.  Was starting to feel junky. 

I like how you have a tiny sliver of a shelf for all the Pucks! :ganishka:

Guts: Custom Berserker Armor with Guts and Schierke by Black Minnaloushe 
( http://berserkstatues.com/kits/other/completed/gutsarmordio.html )

Hi Yota. I'm happy you like my Guts/Schierke diorama, but that is a custom job. So, unlikely you will find it, unless I sell mine! Haha, but I won't be doing that. Good luck on the others!

Guys :puck: we need more :ganishka: :beast:

AMAZING display man!  One of my favorites that I've seen!  Lots of thought put into this, and I love how you kept many of the same scale figures together so they match better.  Great idea with the Femto Gyakko too.  And where did you find those castle walls for the 1/15 AOW action figures?

Thank you for reviving.  Always want to see more. :ubik:

PS Can we get a far shot of the entire case?

pre-order bonus for buying at EB games in Canada(don't know if its the same at gamestop in the US probably is) six dlc costumes 2 for guts 2 for griffith and 2 for Schierke but no wet clothes casca

https://www.ebgames.ca/Platform/Games/726683

Looks like it's up on gamestop for North America with the preorder bonus: http://www.gamestop.com/ps4/games/berserk-and-the-band-of-the-hawk/136813

Here are the 6 costumes:


I was going to preorder on Amazon because Prime members save 20% on all pre-orders and new releases, so I hope Amazon gets some DLC bonus too.  Cuz of those 6 costumes, I only really care for the Schierke ones.  The Guts/Griffith ones are just weird.

Wow! Crazy! F4F is getting everything these days.  I own their entire line of Zelda statues, as well as some of the Metroid, and other gaming statues.  Their prices are very good and poses are quite dynamic.  Awesome customer service and interaction (they have FB lives, Q&A, etc).  I'm excited to see what comes of this!

Cool stuff!  And nice, volume 23 lithograph cover is the best one!!!

This intrigues me a bit.  I love dioramas, and I especially want more Casca statues.  It's hard to say how good the faces are though.  From the side, Casca looks a bit off, so I would need to wait for front-facing pics to see both her and Guts' face.  We'll see...  I haven't bought an AOW statue in over a year.  I think the last one I got was the tentacle ship~

You sweet summer children don't know the pain of collecting the three (four?!) different spines throughout Viz's various rebrandings of Vagabond since 2003.  :judo:

LOLLL so true.

Gorgeous.

Preordered all of mine from amiami.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME.

Horrible.  Absolutely horrible.  I'm missing one volume and now I guess I have to resort to ebay for it.

Does that also mean all future releases will have this new spine???  DH WHY.

Pretty cool!  This looks more exciting for me than the general game action.  Just for nostalgia sake, haha.

The french company Tsume recently announced that they will be working on a Golden Age Berserk line.

The sculptor for this line will be Caleb Nefzen. He is an absolutely insane sculptor.

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up Mangetsu.  Their Naruto line of statues is pretty nuts, and sell out insanely fast (and resell for astronomical amounts).  I hope we get to see some cool dynamic poses / dioramas like those.  Also, I want to see some Judo, Rickert, Pippin, Carcus, etc too!

And wow, I just checked out Caleb's fb page that you linked.  He is indeed an amazing sculptor.  Lovely details and leans more to a realistic style, which I prefer!  Hyped!

They are beautiful.

First Teaser Guys

So much for creative poses... lol.  Oh well, hopefully the likeness and paint job wlil be amazing.  But I have to say I'm a bit disappointed with the pose thus far.

Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: 2016 Berserk album from Susumu Hirasawa
« on: September 19, 2016, 05:14:22 PM »
I'm surprised there's not much talk about this album.  I got it on Friday and listened to it all weekend.  IT IS EVERYTHING a Berserk fan and a Susumu fan could ever hope for.  It's glorious!  Listening to this CD just fills me with so much joy and nostalgia.  There is nothing like it.



I really like Forces 2016.  Fantastic remix.  All the new renditions were lovely, although none too far-out there.  Indra 2016 was great.  The instrumentals were just so so, though.  I will probably skip them for the most part.  I think my only wish would be that the Guts theme from the 1997 anime had a new rendition.  That song was the most iconic for me.

Sigh, why can't Susumu just do every Berserk song for every Berserk anime.  <3
