@Animasta: OH SHOOT. Stuff is probably about to go down! Okay that'll be like the first thing on my agenda this weekend.
EquitasInvictus's forum posts
Unfortunately, I don't think this post is going to reach the people it was intended for. Personally, I do read Patrick's articles and I find the lot of them insightful. I do very much often try to avoid getting involved with the comments, however; they inevitably end up a mess. The people responsible for that either won't read this thread, will dismiss it immediately, or just get all defensive, potentially starting an even bigger mess.
It's really unfortunate and disconcerting that there are people out there who can't read an article and have the gall to make baseless comments about it or the matter the article covers. It happens all the time though -- even outside of this site -- and I don't really think there is nothing that can be done about that, sadly.
and it does that weird thing where they'll say both languages in one sentence
Yeah! That's super awkward to listen to for me.
And I actually fell waaaay behind on Jormungand so I totally forgot how its OP sounds like. I just remember the ED by Yanagi Nagi; I think she's like my favorite artist right now. (Actually, anyone who has sung for Supercell/ryo is my favorite artist right now.) But yeah, I totally need to catch up on Jormungand!
whenever anime does OP/ED's in english I just kinda ignore the words. Like the opening for Black Lagoon, she has some really really bad pronunciation.
The only person who can apparently speak English in Japan properly is the one who did the ED for Hourou Musuko, but that's because she lived in Virginia as a child. I do wonder how hard it is for Japanese people to learn the difference between R and L actually
That reminds me how the first Jormungand OP was pretty upsetting. Mami Kawada has a great voice but her English is terrible, and there was english every other word in that song. I cried inside.
@Petiew: That's pretty good, but I'm pretty sure I've seen similar done every now and then in the past. I've seen the "M" flipped to a "W" before -- I actually think the "W" is the one I've seen most replicated and I also think that's the punniest phonetically -- "Whack-Donalds" sounds like a social statement.
My money is on Walking Dead once Jeff plays it. Until then, XCOM, but WD is my front runner for the site by year's end.
It's not my GOTY but I think it will be theirs.
Just curious: what is your game of the year?
And yeah your predictions re: the bomb crew's GotY will probably be correct, I see that happening myself.
I don't think the Giant Bomb achievements system is too active (in fact, it's getting phased out), but if you really wanted to refresh it right away you can go to your profile's achievements page, Click "Manage Your Accounts" and you should see a list of your accounts and a refresh button. Click the refresh button and wait a bit and it should update.
@Ravelle: Yeah I totally agree, even considering Yuno's part in his backwards development, Yukiteru is even more full of crap as a character overall with his faults and transgressions pitted against those of Shinji, which is why I'd still say Yukiteru is the worst hero in over Shinji.
@EquitasInvictus: Yukiteru was pretty bad, but my "worst protagonist" title has to go to Shinji Ikari from Neon Genesis Evangelion. I could never bring myself to like that guy. Man up, dammit!
Well said! @Cloudenvy would agree with it too.
His character is at least consistent at being terrible so you expected him to be crappy and he delivered on that without too many deivations.
Yukiteru, on the other hand, would make sad attempts (usually because those situations were desperate) at trying to act all empowered and reliable, even making friends in the process, but in the end he screwed over all his friends, getting them killed -- mostly by his hands(although that's arguably because of Yuno being deceptive as hell, that still exemplified how weak he was as a human being.) . That's the worst, I don't remember being Shinji going that far in terms of being a terrible human being, aside from when he (incoming End of Evangelion spoiler:) pleasured himself to comatose Asuka. There's a lot of cases for underscoring how terrible both of them are, though, and I guess that's beyond the scope of this thread (although discussing that might help us catch up with the wrestling thread in terms of posts!).
