    Something on my mind about Casca

    I think some people were probably unsure how the consequence of Guts' assault on Casca would manifest, and chose the laziest possible outcome. That she would "choose" Griffith as a result of everything she'd endured would be among the most problematic possible responses for her character.

    What are you reading?

    I started re-re-reading Name of the Wind and Wise Man's Fear, otherwise known as books 1 and 2 of the Kingkiller Chronicle. That's a pretty ostentatious title considering that even after ~1800 pages, there's still no dead king :guts:. Every few years, usually if I'm bedridden, I'll turn back to...

    Sue's special attack... :stop:

    Looking for high quality version of this pic

    That's a pretty high resolution one, honestly. The most I can do is clue you in on what you're looking for — the cover of the 12th laserdisc from the 1997 series. It looks like this in full: https://gramho.com/media/2119027281700418183 You might also be able to scan a high quality one from the...

    Prepare for some legendarily bad, unskippable voice acting. :magni:

    We’d be cult leaders, and the people reading this would be living beneath a trap door that we opened at dinner time. :beast:

    What Are You Playing?

    If we just pick on my eyebrow comment I’m going to sound like a lunatic... I was using eyebrows as a half-joke, but the larger point Im attempting to make is that in the absence of explicit writing, the animation tools and their capability end up carrying a lot of weight for the character...

    What Are You Playing?

    This is cheating a bit, but I wanted to ground my complaint in a demonstration instead of another hypothetical: The first Last of Us 2 trailer. Just peek at the first 3 minutes, or so. You'll know when to stop watching. :casca: Once again, the performance capture here is stunning. But ... if...

    What Are You Playing?

    Started BotW again about 3 weeks back so my son could see the bulk of it (I mainlined it at release well before he was interested). I’ll explore a bit on my own time, but he wants to experience the story bits and shrines. So I’ll queue up a handful of shrines, then he gets to solve them. We just...

    Dark Horse is releasing Dragon Slayer themed bookends

    If you had clicked the part that I had hyperlinked, there’d be no mystery as to my meaning. But in short, the way Dark Horse has historically pitched Berserk as if it’s some kind of kitschy murder porn is embarrassing. This kind of blunt messaging doesn’t reflect the tone of the series at all.

    SkullKast: Episode 102 - Barrier

    I addressed it toward the back end of this ep. I didn’t like it at first, but upon examination there’s a reason Miura did it this way. If he showed the first reaction without cutting away, he’d have to repeat it again for the way this episode ends. By chopping out the first reaction, he...

    Dark Horse is releasing Dragon Slayer themed bookends

    It's a cool idea for bookends, but the blood effect looks quite cartoony, to me. And I have no room anyhow. I barely have shelf space for what I have, and it takes up a whole closet. Fuck off. :schierke:

    Attention Star Wars Fundamentalists: The TRUE Trilogy on DVD.

    Perhaps, but consider the mind of the person who would choose to update their movies post release in this fashion. Chalk it up to Lucas’ hubris. The confidence in that decision being right, the unwillingness to consider alternatives. OF COURSE, he’d want to edit the master, because this time...

    Attention Star Wars Fundamentalists: The TRUE Trilogy on DVD.

    This thread is adorable :ganishka: What if I told you that you could GET IT ALL for the low low monthly price of $6.99? And we’ll toss in the Mando action figure play set! But hang on, Griff... *crosses arms* Without TPM, we won’t have the critical Naboo trade war context for the later...
