It's true what they say: the biggest betrayals come from those closest to you!

Gotta have those outrageous hot takes to get the outraged replies, bro! :badbone: I'm the Tevis Thompson of; Super Metroid? 2/10, I do NOT actually feel like I am lost in space as I did as a child playing Metroid on the NES. Mario World? Trash World. Zelda 3? More like Zelda 4... Pussies! Minesweeper, now THAT'S a game! It'll sweep away the mines inside your mind and I really appreciate the progressive anti-landmine message.

Kidding aside, I get angry at this game, mostly when I'm attempting some awful wall jumping section to get somewhere I'm not even sure I'm supposed to go yet and so then I'm waking up my wife literally getting into a fight with the Wii U gamepad. :ganishka: That's mainly what I was referencing as to my hatred, any other discontent is just the malaise of mid-Metroid backtracking, but I'm otherwise having a perfectly enjoyable time and appreciating again just how much the game still has to offer. At best I experience it like a grown up Mega Man with a whole world to survive and explore. I do think it'd be an interesting debate between Super Metroid, SotN and some of their modern offspring. I think the problem with a lot of the modern entries is they're too beholden to Super Metroid and therefore don't go far enough afield (it really is the exact same shit for the most part). Even SotN mixes it up a bit more than most of these with the key items and light RPG elements.

Hey no name, thanks for sharing! I like the contrast of the pale and bone colors of Griffith and the Jotun with Grunbeld's apostle form! I can see that you worked to apply some of the fiery glow onto Griffith and Zodd. It's a little faint, but I can see what you're going for there! Overall, I really dig it and hope to see more from you.  :ubik:

The gameplay pretty much looks exactly like what you'd expect from the next step in the Souls/Bloodborne lineage, so nothing is going to dissuade me. It's just a matter of if I go for the PC or PS4 version. Steam teased me with q pre-order offer yesterday, but my PC and video card are pretty up there in years, Nioh ran like shit on it, so I might be better off just grabbing the safe bet and getting the most out of that PS4 investment anyway. Longterm I can always buy it on sale for PC later if I just want to have it on there "forever" (not like I replay all these games anyway).

Super Metroid - Grinding my way through little by little every night, two of the big bosses are down (most recently the one of the Wrecked Ship) and I've got the gravity suit, spring ball etc, so I've got little left to collect for exploring purposes. Still, I see why I always lost interest before... I kind of hate this game lol! :ganishka:

A Godhnad has been reborn to the world. Magic reappears as the material realm merges with the astral realm. This new fan-edit continues from where the previous one ends, at the fall of the tower. Guts has finally reunited with Casca and has witnessed Griffith get reborn into the world. Now he must make a choice.

Notable inclusions in this edit are the re-edit of Griffithís introduction to the new Band of the Hawk, and an original sequence of Guts and Casca on the road. Many other smaller edits, and voice dubbing have been made to correct the story and avoid visual confusion. The aim is to make this feel like a movie.

Those familiar with the manga will know that many pivotal moments are not captured in any outside media, so donít consider this a replacement for either the very excellent manga, nor any of the original media.

Special thanks to Mista_L for audio splitting, and to the team at Berserk Fandub, CapnFloof, Lucien1911, Bomberguy, Diegmeist, Henry Schraeder, Crok425, and Shin Chie, and Manganomix for additional voice work.

DIFFERENCES from the original:
-New Opening Credit Sequence
-No commercial breaks or credits between shows
-Griffith's appearance at the Kushan siege has been re-edited to be a continuous scene. Originally it was a scene cut between 3 episodes.
-An original sequence based on the manga cataloging Guts hard nights defending Casca, making him less of a monster when he eventually attacks her.
-All sound transitions between edits will be evened out.

-The bad jazz music when Guts thinks about Griffith before the hill of swords. Iíd like to remove this, but Iíd need that jazz track isolated, and I donít have access

Lost Themes I, II and Anthology by John Carpenter (the latter being new arrangements and recordings of selected film compositions). You can check out a decent sampling of material on his surprisingly dynamic official website:

Halloween (2018) -


I'm on a Carpenter kick at the moment (music currently, but films always), so I couldn't help but get sucked in and look forward to his debut as strictly a composer. Anyway, Carpenter liked the pitch, is directly involved producing and composing, and although it pains me a bit that they're eliminating what was previously the best sequel in the series, and a cool sequel period, in Halloween II, I understand why they took it back to the creepy magic of the original and eliminated the weird familial relationship, plus the complication of Michael having his eyes shot out and then burning/exploding (he recovered =). Early reviews are pretty positive and claim it gets what made Halloween great, but I guess we'll see. I'm expecting a good if uneven time as a fan, but not a classic revival on par with the original of course (more an alternate take on Halloween II, which is still hard to beat in my eyes since it returns all the principals and takes place the same night, so the polar opposite of this concept), and I'm really looking forward to the aforementioned soundtrack.
