So Sekiro is actually a prequel to Nioh. :carcus:

And it's highly possible that Nioh 2 is actually going for the same era, the exact same characters :ganishka:

Speculation Nation / Casca's Role in the Future
« Last post by mgoryo13 on June 17, 2018, 09:56:46 AM »
I'm sure that Casca's healing aint for nothing, right? One of the things that made me love her is the fact that she lead the Hawks for one whole year while being hunted by the effin Midland army 24/7. I mean, come on. Even if the Hawks had 0 defeat under Griffith at least they get rests in between. And even then Casca was beside him. I mean, she must be one hell of a strategist (is that what you call 'em?).
And if they will defy Griffith/Femto now, they are also going against a supernatural army.  I can imagine Casca playing a big role as a commander of an army that they will somehow gather. And it would give me incredible chills if they managed to pull out the original Hawks and include them in battle or even just an apparition of them. Its cheesy but hey... lets dream. :casca:

What about you guys?

So after some readings... if it's set during the late 1500, during Sengoku, this Shinobi could be a interpretation of Hattori Oni Hanzo. With or whitout even naming him basically.

Miyazaki interview with usgamer and famitsu.

In a IGN live interview, the producer and translator introduced the hero by saying exactly :We're calling him the Shinobi, for now. He's sworn to protect a character we call the Young Lord. He's about a 10 years old boy and there is something really special about that boy.

Quote from: Wikipedia
Hattori Hanzō (服部 半蔵, ~1542[1] November 4, 1596), also known as Hattori Masanari or Hattori Masashige (服部 正成), was a famous samurai of the Sengoku era, credited with saving the life of Tokugawa Ieyasu and then helping him to become the ruler of united Japan.Today, he is often a subject of varied portrayal in modern popular culture.

Talking about Tokugawa Ieyasu :

Quote from: Wikipedia
He was said to have a close friendship with his vassal Hattori Hanzō.

Ikiru in the bottom half? :azan:

Again, this is my order of preference, not so much about quality. What's your personal ranking (via PM or in a dedicated thread i guess) ? :void:

ryOtoha, the point, at least mine, is that Sucker Punch studio is not necessarily to game making what Akira Kurasawa is to film making

Personally, i don't expect Ghost to be for video games what any AK work is still to this day to films. That's near impossible.

therefore such comparisons are largely meaningless or superficial at best (and hugely favorable to Ghost of Tsushima of course =).

Agreed  :serpico: Let's say that i'm pretty nerdy when it comes to Films and especially Kurosawa  :iva:

For those interested, here's his 30 films ranked, according to my appreciation.

They could be directly adapting Seven Samurai into a video game and it wouldn't mean the game is of the quality of Seven Samurai or Akira Kurasawa. So while these homages are cool, it doesn't really tell me if the game will ultimately do them justice.

Beyond the obvious references, the use of wind and water as symbolism shows that Sucker Punch understands the themes and essence of Kurosawa's oeuvre, and they strive to use it in their art direction. And for that specific reason, it seems very promising to me :guts:

People love or hate this one, so sounds pretty good! I've heard favorable comparisons to The VVitch.

A24 is usually a sign of quality. I still favor the Witch slightly (need to rewatch it), and I can see how that one can be more divisive.
Hereditary mixes art-house with mainstream pretty well, has some classic horror scares while still delivering a deeply emotional, complex family drama. The third act falls apart slightly by trying to cater to the new-horror crowd, but I was already so in for the ride that I didn't let some of the obvious scenes bother me (still, they're done with gusto and elegance).

I hope these movies start a new trend in horror by going back to the slow-burn, more mature themed movies like Rosemary's Baby or The Exorcist, skipping what the 80's did to the genre (even though kid me loved Freddy). The Suspiria remake (surprisingly helmed by a renowned director) looks amazing as well - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KS2Xk8LJYA - great music by Thom Yorke.

Support these movies.

Hereditary was a trip. A cinema experience like I haven't had in ages. Go watch it. It deserves the hype. I can't wait to go back.
