I finished Final Fantasy II on Saturday. Man, I'm glad that's over. I appreciate the attempt at innovation with the EXP system (or lack thereof), but it just didn't work. That being said, the game was a decent amount of fun and I'm glad I gave it a shot.

I started playing Phantasy Star on Sunday. I already like it more than Final Fantasy II, but that wasn't too high of a bar to reach. It's very unique so far, and I'm really enjoying myself. I even played for about 45 minutes before going to work today. It's nice being able to save anywhere in the world, and I love the fact that I need to take notes and draw out the dungeon maps like in the good old days.

From Steamworld Heist, which I'm about 10h into now. Towards the end of the game you can find these. The description makes it pretty obvious that it was an intentional reference.

Welcome McAngus !

I had a similar experience, but I just watched one episode of the original anime before diving headfirst into the manga !

Still ... it's much better than most of the Berserk "lore" videos on YouTube, and we certainly aren't making these videos, so props to her for that.

Yea that's basically why it drew my attention, there's only a handful attempts like this and it felt refreshing, albeit incomplete in some respects.

Hey all. I've been a fan of Berserk from when I first discovered the manga about 11 years ago.

I saw the anime first and initially I just wanted to know what the hell happened next. However, after I started the manga I was surprised to discover that there was so much more to the story both in content and depth.

Looking forward to continue following the series along with everyone here.

So I recently found this channel out and like it was fate, it pumps out a Berserk video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WhgUNBszps

I found the approach to the underlying themes of conciousness and form quite spot-on, even though the whole shebang with the Idea of Evil is likely not getting adressed, at least not directly.

I think it's a pretty complicated topic to dive head-first into like this, so I admire the approach. And I think they do a serviceable job addressing the Plato connection, but there are still things left on the table (kind of hard not to with this topic, its tendrils are everywhere). Still ... it's much better than most of the Berserk "lore" videos on YouTube, and we certainly aren't making these videos, so props to her for that.

I just watched it and I can't say that it is very good. There are several misconceptions throughout the video (including what the word "Idea" refers to in "Idea of Evil") and the author doesn't even seem to consider that some the concepts at play might come from Asia (they do).
