Can't we have our cake and eat it too?! I'm all for coexistence! Coexist! Like this: (I'm surprised it hasn't been posted yet quite frankly I could've sworn I first encountered the following on a Giant Bomb thread)

Just because I still watch anime more than I watch wrestling nowadays, I had to pick anime. But I was really a sucker for wrestling back in the attitude era when I knew nothing of anime.

Also there's definitely some sort of overlap I can't place my finger on between anime and wrestling. For some reason, Kill la Kill, which is probably my favorite anime from the last year, kept reminding me of how much I used to like wrestling at certain super campy but totally amazing moments.

Thanks for the information duder! I got my tickets, but uh, unfortunately I don't have any big questions that come to mind regarding the event. I'll post to bump this so it's more visible for people who do have good questions, though!

I preordered this when I found out this was coming overseas.

I am super excited, even though I haven't played Chaos; Head yet or even watched any anime of the series. I also may or may not have played parts of it already somehow.

Weren't they having technical issues today? I don't think he meant "killing the chat" for good, although I wasn't quite tuned in for all of it tonight, I just remember tweets about the technical issues they were having today.

I'm Val.

We aren't friends.

We'll be friends soon enough!

Because of my experience with installing an excessive amount of mods for those big Bethesda/Obsidian open world games (Oblivion, Fallout: NV, Skyrim, etc.) I'd always experience multiple crashes in a single sitting on a bad day. I quick-saved like a madman, so it wasn't too frustrating.

I guess I have a high tolerance.

Totally! I feel like I already do this, if those games on the Source engine classify as this. Even if they don't, I'd totally buy the really amazing new content the best mods for games like Skyrim and the modern Fallout games on account of their quality being really amazing and the fact that they do accomplish making me play those kinds of games even longer than I'd normally devote time to a game!

Oh my gosh, I can't believe they had a TommyFebruary6 cover! That's pretty intense.

I might give it a shot (I gave the reboot a chance until I encountered traffic issues and the inability to scale further due to land size) but like others I feel like it's waaaay too late. Also, I'd probably just wait for good mods, since there's bound to be one that deals with the size issue.

@equitasinvictus:Uh, it's not about mocap. It's about they put Troy Baker in a booth with a guitar and had him play with Courtney Draper singing. I do not think there's any reason why that should be necessary but it's fucking awesome. It's also fucking awesome they put it in the credits. I felt that was really telling too about the way the game was made because it's a 5 minute clip of awesome music being played and then Ken Levine congratulates them and makes a few apt criticisms which inform the final scene as its shown in the game and make that scene feel right where the awesome music would not.

I didn't want to spoil it, but in the middle during the recorded "mocap" portion they all start singing their lines in a melodramatic fashion. I know the scene you mentioned from BioShock though and also appreciated it but I actually just wanted to share Troy Baker singing very melodramatically one what they tricked people going into a panel at PAX Prime was the "alternate ending" of TLoU was.
