You're making blanket statements on opinions I have which are both false and distasteful.  CNN and FOX.  biased black hearted journalism in these networks was my "sniping target."  Stating opinions doesn't need to always be met with such retort.  Wasn't my intention.  Back to the movie thread.  I do not think you would be fun at a party, but who knows.   :farnese:

Daaaang Walter.  Look at our conversation history.  Did I wrong your family or something?  You come off aggressive, annoyed, and elite with every response.

Why do you insist on being combative with me?

I think you would find me easier to get along with in person.   :guts:

No clue where the political side was coming from as I avoided every possible article up to release. Once I saw it I started digging and whoops, should have left it alone.  From someone who has seen Clinton as the worst robot in politics since I was a younger rebel,  the few I saw were Idiot trumpers, but a few articles provoked the less intellectually challenged.

Who knows if I'll still feel this way in a month.  TFA had me initially right behind Jedi, but fell off after it sunk in over time.  This could be the OMFG Stuuuur wers! Moment that is eclipsing my inner critic.  You're right that the originals are hard to top as the magic of the entire series is enveloped under that shroud.  For me, its damn close right now as being that good.  Certainly could change.   :ganishka:

Aazealh, I forgot you or Walter are in the journalist department, so nothing personal by my comment.  This year and the lack of being objective from the many networks have left the worst taste in my mouth.  Like burnt popcorn, I didn't realise what happened until it was all in my mouth being chewed on.

I'd put TFA around the same quality as episode 3, only better if the questions it raised are answered well.

Edit: I love star wars, so bottom of the barrel is a poor choice of words.  I don't plan on watching episode 1 or 2 much during the rest of my life span is the best way to put it.  My favorite moments in the saga are in Jedi, but its not the best movie.

Sooooo, for those who have seen it, are we gonna rank Rogue One right under Empire and New Hope?  I was quite impressed. 

Didn't realize all the political crap in the media until after I saw that and it sounds like journalists projecting from their black hearts.  I remember when episode 3 came out and Anakins "you're either with me or my enemy" line was the subject of GWB.  Haha, never get the idiocy I read occasionally in the news. 

Bottom of the barrel would be Phantom and Clone and top would be new hope and empire.  TFA somewhere right above episode 1 and 2.

Started Deus Ex: Human Revolution.  This is the first game I've played of the series.  When I became curious about Deus Ex, I didn't think I would be able to appreciate the original at the time since it was already a decade old.  Completely ran out of anything I'd been backlogged with and hopefully I'll enjoy this new universe.

For the consoles, these remasters that have been coming out have cut the newer games down a little and there isn't much coming out anytime soon that will have me playing two or three at once.  Might be replaying some old favorites for the foreseeable future.

Anybody can be a secret robot, or a robot following programming, or be brought back as a robot, or as their real human counterpart because the one that died was a robot, etc.

I will eventually finish the season, but initially this very thought of how the series would play out haulted me from much enjoyment.  I made it a few episodes in and lost interest.  Hopefully I'm wrong.

Didn't know this thread existed.  I work out often enough, but always eat like shit.  Usually my moto goes like "sure, I could get a six pack, but I'm gonna get burger king for lunch."  I'm right at six foot tall and usually float between 180 and 190 year round.  Haven't really weighed much more than high school and being 32, I can't complain.

I bike a vigorous 18 miles a day during the nicer parts of the year to work and back.  During the colder season like right now I just stop at the gym on the way home to jog and lift.  Once it gets below 40 degrees, pushing my lungs feels like fire.

Thanks for the thorough explanation.  Actually sounds decent by that description and I'll definitely snag it soon.

St. Anger was bottom of the barrel for me.  Death magnetic was as forgettable as re load and I was too young to probably view load as the same.  I think I'm expecting too much today from their early days.


\m/ :guts: \m/

How is it?  Only heard one single and it peaked my interest.  If you've gotten your hands on this bad boy, I'm curious where you would rank it within the years of Metallica.  The years having highs and lows all over the map. 

Helping or hurting?  :???:

I plead the fifth on that one. 

I can honestly say I have seen the trilogy for months at several locations where I live.  I can also honestly tell you that without shame I remove every copy and cover all the movies around it to make it stand out.

Great podcast.  Delta, your audio wasn't too bad, man.  :)  All points were addressed and I'll throw in mine.

This is where I draw the line.  I've always enjoyed adaptions for what they are, but I honestly felt ashamed watching the 2016 anime.  When you're by yourself and feel embarrassed, you know something is very off.  The same feeling I had during some very cringe worthy scenes in BvS, a movie my own brother said to go see.  Trickery at its best.  Shame at the thought of someone walking in on me.  I would not show this to anyone because I can't fathom said person ever wanting to hear about Berserk ever again from my lips.

Season 2 is coming and I can't imagine things getting worse, so only better, right?   :sad:

Yeah, I mean I skipped RE6 so I'm basically "over" the series. The only reason this one interests me is because it's different. So I understand the business logic behind continuing the franchise, but I hope it doesn't negatively affect this game.

I also skipped RE6.  The PSVR has been on my radar specifically for this game.  I'm saddened to hear that what you saw seemed less than impressive.   Imagined myself in the basement late at night getting scared with some kind of immersion I haven't experienced.  Hope there is indeed an overhaul by Feb. 

Watched a video recently about what makes a resident evil game and I must say I tend to agree with the person who made it.  While RE5 was fun for couch co op, outside of the characters, it was an action game and didn't resonate any old feeling the series had.  Go all the way back to ps1 and we have had the classics, 4 (to me is still the king), 5, outbreak, and the rail shooters on the wii. I know there are several more, but this new game, assuming the lore is in place, is all I know of to make something resident evil.  A lot of us started with the original, (old bastards) but capcom has been nothing but evolving with the series.  If the execution is great, maybe we'll have a few games with this new look. 

Now if my favorite horror series would get some dedicated and gifted individuals behind it.  My old silent hill has been a mess.   Strangely, I can't think of anything coming up I'm greatly anticipating.

Almost done with this project.  Took a joust cab and gutted it.  Found a cheap dell monitor to replace the old one, which had a nice game of black jack burned in.  Had an older rca receiver and Klipsch bookshelf speaker to throw inside.  Wired a computer fan into a old phone cord on top.  The big fun of the entire thing is the modded xbox with 18k games from Pong to Halo 2 or so.  Every system I care or don't care about is easily navigated within and the controller arrived today.  Works as expected.  Little wood work to get it mounted securely and the xbox needs mounted inside so I can make a push button on the exterior and never open that coin door.  Now I need to make some custom decals with some of my favorite art from all of my favorite games.

And Salem, definitely check out a demo if you can. On the lower difficulty settings you can just stand around without taking damage. Out of the 15 enemies surrounding you, one or two will attack every 15 seconds or so. The only real difficult part of Musou games is making sure your NPCs don't die, or completing objectives within certain time limits. When/if the combat is difficult, its because your enemy has gargantuan amounts of health and can kill you in 3 or 4 hits (looking at you Lu Bu).

Thanks.  That actually sounds alright if getting the combat down to a fine precision is ultimately where the challange comes from.  Watching the videos, it's hard to gauge anything like that.

Again with the down voting.  This is as bad as high school.

This last episode was a prime example of these flaws. The music that started during Griffith's incarnation, it simply was horseshit.


That scene was actually starting to excite me and then the reversal with that terrible shred on the guitar. Wtf, why would you?... Absolute crap letdown mental state would stay with me past it's conclusion.

The series thus far feels like the people in charge know the source material, yet secretly hate it.

The animation seemed to improve a little by the last episode.  Hopefully the rage and outcry from many of the fans will help structure season 2 better.  If all else fails and the second season has already been done, let's hope they make some changes in the meantime.    I swear I heard this was going to be 24 episodes originally, so that is where my line of thought is coming from.

I don't see the pacing, which at times really does itself no service, changing enough to make things smooth.  I do find it a little shoddy to make so many repetitive sound effects.  I'm no one to specialize in such matters, but don't see how hard it would be to smash steel on different material to get a sweet sound for the dragon slayer.  As much as I love Susumu, replaying one song is not the key.  All these remixes from the golden age movies are pretty bad.  Could be part of the budget?  Dunno.

All in all season 1 felt pretty meh.  Following the manga more closely around episode 4 and on made everything a little better.  Much improvement needed, so let's hope for the best.

Oh man!  That shot of the armor makes me smile.

From what I understand most Dynasty Warriors games act similar to this with the A.I. I've only personally played the Zelda Warriors game and it seems like this is also a thing, not quite as bad though.

As for the game itself, it looks like it's shaping up to be pretty fun, I don't have any high expectations for it other then to just mess around and use my favorite characters to defeat large groups of enemies. I'm curious about the boss fights with some of the apostles, the screen shots look decent.

Thanks, Tama.

I also don't have any expectations, but was curious as it looks far too simple.  A new Berserk game will be picked up and played by me regardless.  I may need to adjust what I perceive about it a little.  I would assume a little bit of a challenge, but if the ai is lax, I'll just crank the difficulty and hope the bosses are a pain.

Why, in all of these videos, do the enemies appear to just stand around?  For anyone familiar with these games, is this a thing?  I want to feel powerful as Guts, but not untouchable.

Oh, I curse all the time. I've got a real fucking problem -- particularly with my 3 year old son.

Bahahahaha.  Oh, that struggle is real.  2 year old and 1 simultaneously really pushes the human condition.   :ganishka:
