I just watched Gundam 0080 after Austin was talking about it. That is a dope 6 episode miniseries with giant robots and characters on both sides of a conflict you care about. It's all on youtube as well.
I find it frustrating that this site has repeatedly demonstrated a tendency to hold back on doing what they know people actually want them to do the most, but at least they'll get back to it eventually.
They don't owe you shite, son. Plus, I'm pretty sure they're doing it so the game has a chance to sell a few copies; if they burned through it all quickly, then no one would've bought it. Considerate, I'd say.
I always find these responses kind of funny. They kind of do owe us 'shite.' If it wasn't for us, they wouldn't have a job. I do agree that playing it too fast wouldn't be good for the developers, etc, but them not having to ever give us, the paying customers/ad watchers, what we want is kind of ridiculous.
PS. this wasn't an assault on you or anything, I don't know you, but stuff like that always rubs me the wrong way.
Actually they don't owe you anything. You're not their employer. It is, however, in their best interest to gauge the community for things it enjoys and cater to those wants if it aligns with what they want as well
@csl316: It wasn't awful on reflection, but I think opinions were soured quite a bit by the super disappointing Owens/Cena finish. Also Sheamus/Orton being a mind numbingly boring start to the show. The rest was fun though, Miz even cut an ok promo!
Honestly I thought the Orton/Shaemus match was the best one they've had of this recent run and pretty okay. Plus the crowd being way into Orton added something to it.
Imagine if in the remake the added a new character named Tom who as white (as much as people don't like to think, the other characters are japanese). He's fat, lazy, and boorish. He can't work computers or machines and think's he better than everyone. He fights by using explosives and blowing everyone up at which point he celebrates with obnoxious "horse laughs", as the Japanese would say.
Would that not be offensive to you? It should be. There's a point at which people are just a little too dull to even realize they are being made fun of. There's a ton of anime and video games that basically tell white people that they are slow witted, uncultured and uncivilized, and they don't quite pick up on it. It's really kind of fascinating. A lot of white people see themselves as being the main characters and stuff in video games when those characters are really japans. Pay attention to when a character is expressly American, like Guile or Alex in street fighter. They are typically depicted as macho thugs.
If I come to a time in my life when I can't laugh at myself, I'm just going to walk into traffic. Don't be so fucking sensitive.
I demand Tom be included in the FF7 remake.
That's a real easy position to have when you have Dick the Space Marine super leader and Harry the Vampire Killer and a whole host of other positive examples as opposed to the majority being Tom.
