Berserk Merchandise / Re: Prime 1 launches a Berserk line

Any news on when we'll see SK on horse?  Surprised how many pieces they've shown ahead of him.

Tough to say. The official facebook P1 collectors page has been mum on him, though the sample image of the base is bumped every few weeks. The group was hoping for an unveiling at wonderfest, but instead they showed off some other stuff.

With how complex the base is looking, I'm guessing this will be among their most expensive statues. I'm talking P1 Jetfire Optimus and Wonder Woman on her horse.

If I remember correctly RDD is a impossible port because the coding of the game is a mess.

The idea it was so bad it was "impossible" for them to optimize their own code for PC sounded a little suspect; as if no PC ported games had messy code, plus it was already on both PS3 and X-Box 360, so it's not like it was something singularly designed to only work on one specific platform. I tried looking for verification and came upon this thread on the subject:

https://www.reddit.com/r/reddeadredemption/comments/4fpam9/myth_or_fact_red_dead_redemption_code_is_a_mess/?utm_source=amp&utm_medium=comment_list

So, seems like it's just a rumor to justify it not happening, though I did see a couple of weird glitches myself (like double Marstons in a cutscene =). Anyway, however messy the code was, I'm pretty sure it could have been done by Rockstar or somebody. Plus, it's not like Rockstar wouldn't just put out a crappy port if they really wanted to do it. =) That's actually my guess, that after the experience of GTA IV and them not optimizing RDR for PC in the first place they just didn't want to bother to deal with the inherent problems or fallout so they moved on.

I'm hoping they've reconsidered and planned for it this time, but like Aaz warned I'm not going to hold my breath waiting.

Red Dead Redemption 1 still hasn't been released on PC, so... probably better not to wait.

You're telling me. :carcus: Such a shame since it's one of the best games I've ever played (even the zombie spinoff isn't bad). I can't even really blame them though when you look at some of the sales of games on PC versus the crazy numbers of their console counterparts. GTAV is obviously a wild outlier itself, but when you're selling 88.5 million copies of something on consoles and 1.5 million on PC the question becomes "why do PC?" not "why not?" I wish they were more desperate for money so those extra million sales actually meant more to them (most anybody would kill to move that total, and it's relatively inconsequential to them; though I bet it's worth it for the Online microtranactions =). Long story short, yeah, I'll probably get it at launch for PS4, and unless the game is all an allegory for how Donald Trump is a really sexy leader it'll supplant Dark Souls Remastered as my favorite, and only, game from 2018. :ganishka:

I wonder, actually. I never could get into GTAV and haven't cared for any recent Rockstar games, so I wonder if I'll be so enamored with them in the age of GTA Online and what I'm sure will be RDR Online. I'm quick to yell at clouds, even the Bloodborne online PS+ requirement grossed me out and kind of turned me off, or at least it affecting me correlated with my winding down with that game. Though that might even be worse, essentially putting basic gameplay features behind a third party paywall (why not just charge for high res or controller options in the menu, "Requires PlayStation Plus"? =).

Wow, that's cool, if only we got an interview like this but with our boy Miura.

 I wanna know what he thinks about the future of Berserk nowadays.

He's given two lengthy interviews in the past 2 years: The 2016 Guidebook (Part 1 | Part 2) and the one with Hakusensha's new president ( Part 1 | Part 2)

I feel like Toriyama had no problem showing his face until Oda decided not to.

Kind of weird

Yeah, it's not like nobody knows what he looks like or you can't find pictures of him happily posing for the camera, but considering how big Dragon Ball was and still is, and since he's no longer actively producing it, maybe he wants to keep a lower profile these days? But then... don't do interviews, or just accept the bump in awareness until it recedes again? You're right, it's weird, but there's a certain logic to it that the less people that recognize him at the newsstands or cafe, the better for his day to day life.

Counter theory: Ki blast to the face! :guts:
