  • Check out a couple of animes!
    @AmrAli1 True about the studios, but I'd say altering manga is debatable. Take Onepunchman, for example: the first season was by Madhouse and they added to manga and filled in some things. Like the iconic training fight between Saitama and Genos, it was not as dynamic in the manga, and that famous... see more
  • Check out Beetlejuice 2 trailer
    @DracoTarot I'd say they paint a fuller picture when it's about critics vs. popular opinion comparison, and you need to be increasingly aware of that these days, you know, with the amount companies spend on marketing these days. In games too, I mean, just recently Ubisoft confirmed that Star... see more
  • TV news potpourri, part 2!
    Oh, I dunno... But yeah, I get you. This is why I always try to watch everything in the original voice cast with subtitles if I do not know the original language. see more
  • Steam is having a Summer Sale!
    @Saka Makes sense. Personally, I play more for the story, so I do not mind switching to easier mode if I get stuck. That, or when the game wants you to grind for ages, I want that to be faster. But there are indeed games that do not offer much of a challenge, for example, in Assassin's Creed... see more
  • What is the best game you played in 2023?
    @Saka You know, it's curious, after you mentioned that about the Shaman, I dug out those parody songs that Ian Ziraldo did about WoW classes years ago. You know, "That's the World of Warcraft That You Play!" songs. Here is the first one: He did two of those, the first one 17 years ago, and... see more
  • Check out a couple of animes!
    @Saka I'd need to look into if there is some sort of watching guide telling what should be watched and what can be skipped. I'm sure there should be something like this. I am more worried about time commitment: as I mentioned to @AmrAli1, I have my current animes planned out, and I am not sure I'd... see more
  • Piranha Bytes is gone, but Gothic is not forgotten
    @GoLLuM13 It was hard to get access to games back when, with all the CDs and such, so I ended up playing LBA2 first. But that game had a bug where in-game video scenes would not play, and I did not realise it right away because I was small back then, but I ended up missing some plot points. I still... see more
  • Piranha Bytes is gone, but Gothic is not forgotten
    @DracoTarot Speaking of another classic, I recently found out that Little Big Adventure is getting a remaster. They were working on a relaunch and then it got scraped, and there was a lack of funding and interest from publishers. But that seems to have changed since then, and now the project has... see more
  • What 11 bit studios game do you want to play?
    @Saka I think that lack of proper plan and vision is the bane of many industries. Very evident in movies and series, but games suffer from it as well. I blame increased costs: people stopped taking risks these days if they are big (indie companies do that now), they'd rather calculate the marketing... see more
  • July 2024 : Selection of games to be released
    @GoLLuM13 Ah, that's unfortunate. I do not like it when games have that. see more
  • Check out Beetlejuice 2 trailer
    @DracoTarot Rotten tomatoes can be interesting too, for comparison reasons. They have that interesting critic vs viewers display and allows you to compare critics score vs audience score. When they align, you can see that critics and viewers are of the same opinion in this case. And sometimes they... see more
  • TV news potpourri, part 2!
    @DracoTarot I don't know, sometimes those differences between voice and character can lead to interesting character design choices. Like with Doctor Girlfriend. see more
  • Steam is having a Summer Sale!
    @Saka Ah, I finished that one before. Bosses can be somewhat hard there, yeah. But why do you want to do it on hard, to challenge yourself? My biggest complaint with that game was the story. Not that it was bad, but I have my share of questions. But we can get back to it after you finish it, I... see more
  • What is the best game you played in 2023?
    @Saka But isn't it the usual dance for the devs to make a new patch that mixes everything up and then watch how It does and work out the bugs and tuning as they got thereafter? In an ideal world, those would be ironed out in testing, but we ain't there. What I mean is, with some luck, it will get... see more
  • July 2024 : Selection of games to be released
    @GoLLuM13 So you can play it offline no problem, it does not have one of those new "online play only" rules? see more
  • TV news potpourri, part 2!
    @DracoTarot I am not sure, english voices seem a bit different to me, I'll need to look into who is voicing there. But I am interested in the Japanese version, they are making a full Japanese voice cast as well. I wonder how well they will "match" the characters. see more
  • Assassin's Creed Shadows premiere!
    @ZaidH Hard to say. I read somewhere once (also not sure about credibility) that Ubisoft once claimed that they lost 95% of PC revenue to piracy. Which is...not impossible, but seems exaggerated. Piracy is certainly a problem, but those 95% is a bit... 😅 Technically, you do not need to be... see more
  • Check out Beetlejuice 2 trailer
    @DracoTarot I'm just saying. Cannes is not a seal of approval for me these days: movies, as any art, are more precious when they find resonance in the hearts of the masses rather than the minds of the critics. Out of all the less-than-ideal assessment options out there, I use IMDb score these days.... see more
  • Check out a couple of animes!
    @Saka Can you watch it without having watched the original Bleach? I am always wary of going into such long series, they go on and on, and at a certain point, you get so behind you can't even really start watching them because they've been around for ages. Like Simpsons 😅 see more
  • TV news potpourri, part 2!
    @DracoTarot If nothing else, then as an experiment for sure. But I still hope it will have decent entertainment value in that format and not "be good just because it's different" like some try to. see more
