Video Games / Re: What Are You Playing?
« on: January 31, 2017, 03:46:52 PM »
Got to play the For Honor beta this weekend a little bit. It was a lot of fun, but honestly, I couldn't see myself spending full price on it. I don't know how robust the single player story is, but I get the feeling the game was entirely designed around the multiplayer aspect, and if that's the case, there was nothing particularly amazing about the game. It certainly didn't draw me in. There was never that "Ok, just one more game" feeling.

This could be in part because of connectivity issues though. Out of the entire weekend, I only got two chances to play several games back-to-back. I think most of my time was spent wondering why my NAT type in-game was Strict while my PS4 kept telling me it was Moderate. I think I sat in lobbies waiting for my NAT type to randomly switch over to Type 2 more than actually playing the game. Seems like this was a somewhat common problem among other players, and I probably could have fixed it by port forwarding, but the last time I did that I got yelled at :farnese: (it's kind of a long story). Apparently the game also connects peer to peer, so that might have something else to do with my particular problems.

Maybe once I catch up on my backlog (and if the connection issues get addressed) I'll consider picking the game up, but all things considered, this is a definite pass for me.

MAY preview??  :rickert:

:schnoz: Whoops!

I think Delta meant March 3rd actually.

Indeed I meant March (3/3)

Shamelessly dropping off info found on Reddit: https://twitter.com/berserk_anime/status/824792834297323521

Looks like the anime is to resume in April with a preview of sorts on May March 3rd. Official dates will be posted on the website (of course).

Looks like Volume 38 is out July 5th, although Amazon still has it listed as the 18th.

Saw La La Land last weekend and really liked it. I've been listening to the soundtrack/score all week and the music has been stuck in my head, which is something that hasn't happened in a long time.

Hopefully they'll use Oh Ashes more judiciously in this next season. And maybe Sagisu's music will make more sense...or you know, actually work (I still can't get over that Griffith reveal all these months later).

Must be low on the totem pole (not really surprised), but I guess a year from the JP release is pretty consistent.

Character Cove / Re: Guts and Silat
« on: November 17, 2016, 05:34:10 PM »
I don't think there will be any reason for conflict between Guts and Silat. They got off on the wrong foot, but these two aren't going to be enemies. They have quite a bit in common.

I think it would be neat if they sparred a bit and Guts acknowledged Silat's development. It would be completely unnecessary, of course. Especially considering Silat's words in the last few episodes that featured him. Anyway, just thinking about when/if Guts and Co. link up with the Bakiraka gets me so excited.

The Godhand are basically invincible now

You think so? Assuming they truly have gained a physical body (I'm only skeptical since we haven't actually seen them since the Blast), I would say that makes them much more vulnerable than they were before.

That quote from slan is the sole reason why I started this whole conversation about Guts using a beherit

I wouldn't read too much into it. While Slan seems to have an interest in Guts, and twice she's mused about him becoming an apostle, the confrontation in the Qliphoth seems to be entirely about evoking visceral emotions out of Guts. She taunts him and even intentionally goads him into impaling her. In fact, I'd argue Slan may be more interested in the raw emotions Guts exhibits than the man himself.

35
Who knows, Guts might find another Crimson Beherit and knowing it might be the only way he could match Griffith's power, sacrifice Casca only to have her memory recently restored. A true heartbreak

Even if Guts found a crimson beherit, he'd be waiting another 200+ years for an Eclipse ceremony. Becoming an apostle or God Hand probably wouldn't work either, considering the being that bequeaths those abilities is also the one that manipulated Griffith into power to begin with. Of course we don't know all (or even many) of the rules that govern the God Hand, but the solution you suggest seems very unlikely, doesn't it?

36
Personally I think Guts might have to resort to using a Beherit to gain more immense power and beat them to the ground  :guts: :femto:

In what way?

Wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing to get a new (better) guy though.

Do you think we can we get Puella that job? :carcus: :ganishka:

Shit. That means volume 38 is going to be borked too when it finally gets here. Way to go DH!  :ubik:

This was posted on Reddit and thought it was interesting.



Allegedly this is a comparison of the bluray version (left) and the version that we initially received (right).

Still waiting for Wyald-Shredded-Armor Casca, Naked-Eclipse Casca, and Bandit-Attempted-Rape Casca. :schierke:

Couldn't they have come up with anything that doesn't involve wind?  :mozgus:

Kenpu denki, baby! Nothin' but wind. You get wind attacks! And you get wind attack! Everyone gets wind attacks!

I think this is the first character that is weaker than their manga version.  :femto: he doesn't look too healthy when he's flying either.

He is indeed very unimpressive, but I think that's just part of wanting to make Femto playable. This was bound to look off.

There's some pretty suspect information coming out of this guidebook... Mean, Guts is taller than Pippin? He was what, like at least 6 inches shorter during the Golden Age, and now he's 5 inches taller?

Do you know anyone who grew an extra foot of height after their 19th birthday?  :???:

all playable characters have been revealed

This is extremely disappointing. I mean, I like that Wyald is in, but why him over *any* of Griffith's lieutenants, or Skull Knight? Not to mention we can see other characters in-game, like Farnese and SK. That's a real shame (and I find it hard to believe, but whatever). At least I got Serpico, I guess.

Also not a fan of Wyald's voice at all.

Fantastic job Gummyskull! I didn't think that image of the occultation could be any more ominous!

A lot of people have mentioned Casca's dream and the child-like drawing style. I found this particularly interesting. I know it's a stylistic choice to convey her simple state of mind, but I think another interesting take-away from this is the passive breaking of the fourth wall (NOTE: I'm not making any ridiculous claims here, I promise). Schierke seems to acknowledge that the scribbles are actually perceptible though she doesn't outright mention them, but clearly she can tell the land(dream)scape has shifted. So are they actually seeing a child's drawing in her dream? Or is that more for us readers? I think it should also be noted that the style in Schierke's own dream appears to be more childish, especially compared with Farnese's right after.

It reminds me of diegetic and non-diegetic music in films; how some music, like a score, is meant for the viewers and the characters are unaware, while some music, like something coming out of a car stereo, is meant primarily for and recognized by the characters in the story. Then you get into the weird world of things when diegetic music suddenly shifts to non-diegetic and vis versa (usually using, again, a radio as a conduit for that transition), or how music within a scene may be revealing some kind of irony unknown to the characters.

Just something to think about :slan:

Thanks for the info, Walter. I had assumed the same. I'll definitely be picking this up for the cover alone! I'm excited about what is has inside.

Aaaand, done. Ordered both YA and the Guide Book.

Well despite this news, I find myself even more excited about the new episode. I feel like we might get a pretty exciting cliffhanger, or a lot of information to leave us speculating on during the break. And like Griff said at the end of last year, 8(ish) months? No problem! I've felt so spoiled (bad anime aside) these last few months, I almost feel like I need a break myself!
