Video Games / Re: What Are You Playing?

Yeah that game is pretty monotonous except for boss fights and metroid battles. Even then the metroid battles get stale pretty quickly. I really think AM2R did better with the design of it's boss arenas.

It's got some good, fun streamlining of the formula, particularly the controls, and I'm still chugging along before bed, but... everywhere looks and sounds the same, the metroid battles are too derivative, and even the music arrangement is so completely dull, quiet and unmemorable I can hardly recall hearing it! Gimme the Gameboy versions any day.

The Last Guardian - The game continues to escalate both the frustration, diving/swimming is the worst and the camera during some escape moments is the real monster, and impressiveness, going beyond the awe-inspiring moments of grandeur with the beast to tug at the heart strings. It's okay Trico, I'm fine, it's just a little dusty in here. :judo:

Ico - Got to the 2nd bench and the outside terrace, then got my first game over when I was attacked by bird shadows, tried to take out a small one first, letting a big one grab the girl, and then getting knocked over by a weird tentacled shadow before I could get her out of the hole. Sad. Back to The Last Guardian.

Those aren't enough for everyone, myself included. It's been a long while since I regularly played my Switch.

This was my main source of trepidation with Switch other than it being an outright flop and/or Wii U 2.0; after Zelda, which I could already play, and Mario what was next for me? At the time I hadn't even played the Galaxies yet so Mario wasn't exactly a must have for me anymore either, and so far nothing else has been released or even announced that I really care to play. It's basically Odyssey or bust if I ever get a Switch, so I might as well keep waiting and going through the PC and PS4 games I have or want.

Yeah my sister is the only one who plays my switch rn. But once smash rolls around i will be obsessed with it.

I mean, isn't it just going to be Smash 4 Deluxe with a bigger roster? As a Zelda/Mega Man/Souls fiend I'm a total hypocrite for saying so, but get over it, Smash fans! You're just going to conclude it's not as good as Melee anyway. :carcus:

This is what will happen.
I would hope so but I learned already that you shouldn't get your hopes up too much in this story I mean look at casca regaining her memory's,and then  freaking out at the sight of guts as he brings back bad memory's of the eclipse dark stuff.

Moreover  It seems alot of big actions charcters take have some sort of major drawback for example Griffith opens the doors for the godhand to enter the physical world but didnt he made them more vunerable in the proccess or how about Griffith himself entering the physichal world which possibly gave him his biggest weakness the moonlight boy "cough cough guts leaving band of the hawk Griffith bangs the princess and eventually everyone in falconia getting a fate worse than death because they followed Griffith over a cliff".However I know that whatever happen's the moonlight boy and guts and crew will pull through as to what would be the drawbacks of this we will just have to wait and see. :guts:


Ps: I'm from 1000 years in the future and we are still waiting please help me.

Just spitballing here: It could be for the people who don't need to fit it into their pockets.

Well that's why I called it "xl." They can upgrade it in a number of ways, not the least of which would be an enhanced screen whether that means bigger or not.

Well uh, if he's releasing a series, it's not really a break now is it.

Well, yeah. That's why I put "break" in quotation marks.

I had actually looked at it before but I found it to be excessively goofy for my taste. It might just be another misleading introduction though.

I can understand your point of view, it's possible it was a bit goofy at the beginning indeed, I don't remember exactly to be honest.

Boichi's art style is amazing when he's serious.

I totally agree with you on that.

Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Berserk: The Flame Dragon Knight novel
« Last post by therevverend on October 12, 2018, 10:08:25 AM »
It's obvious from this novel, from the crappy anime and the advertising that came with it, the group that owns Berserk misunderstands the series and views it as trash pulp. They're trying to squeeze every last penny out of it by exploiting the sex, violence, and sexual violence. Target audience is Japanese virgin males age 13-16 who are already over saturated with zombies, vampires, zombie vampires, and hentai.

The worst part is how insulting it is to Miura. Everyone likes to make a buck but seeing his life's work squeezed for every last penny as cheaply as possible like a, well, prostitute, must hurt. Ironic that the idiots on reddit call it the 'rape manga' a more accurate term would be 'the raped manga'. Very disappointing.

When Berserk started in the 80s there were a lot of exploitation mangas and you could get away with a lot more then you can now. I think it's why younger people are shocked by the edgier stuff, back in the day it wasn't so edgy. The first volume reminded me a bit of Hellraiser, made me think of similar comics and films from the 80s.

I don't need to get into the difference between the 80s and 90s exploitation manga/anime and Berserk because this is a Berserk website and not Mad Bull 34. I'm not surprised to hear that the novel most likely sucks but I expected it to suck when I heard about it.

Movies, TV, Books & Music / Re: What is your favourite manga? (besides the obvious one)

Then I highly recommend you Sun-Ken Rock, a manhwa too, in the same style, but way better in all aspects in my opinion. :)

I had actually looked at it before but I found it to be excessively goofy for my taste. It might just be another misleading introduction though. I'm definitely willing to give it another chance, because Boichi's art style is amazing when he's serious.

Good find, they have an interesting art style.

Besides Berserk, my favourites would be Monster, Vagabond, Slam Dunk and of course the great Hunter x Hunter.

I could add more like Vinland Saga, Real, 20th Century Boys, Dragon Ball, One Piece, but if I had to choose they wouldn't be my absolute favourites. I also recently started reading Kingdom and I feel that I'll like it a lot.

I'm at around vol 8 of Monster, but I lost interest. Seems pretty overrated to me.

Give it a second chance! :puck:

Aside from that, other titles that I'm fond of are The Breaker and The Breaker: New Waves, which is actually a Korean manhwa series. It's one of the best Karate Kid type formulas that I have encountered. Great artwork, drama, martial arts, the whole package.

Then I highly recommend you Sun-Ken Rock, a manhwa too, in the same style, but way better in all aspects in my opinion. :)
