Scoooppppssss

Posted by NorseDudeTR

That @patrickklepek sure cranks out content! Though that feels like a reductive word, I like his videos and writeups and enthusiasm. Keep at it, Scoops!

Posted by JimiPeppr

It's just: "See you space cowboy..." Get that proper grammar mess out of there.

As a huge fan of The Swapper, I am really interested in The Fall now.

the only thing making this person angry is the fact you have not finished watching that series... it is probably one of the best anime endings too.

Posted by Jedo

Yeah, really nice vibe of this game, kind of between 2001 A Space Odyssey and Pitch Black.

This is coolest idea I've ever heard of in my life

Posted by Fitzgerald

Some people call me a space cowboy...

Nothing but the best from our resident anime editor.

Posted by Sessh

Wow, finally a Worth Playing that had a game I felt is worth playing. Been a while. (Well last week's Alzheimer game looked interesting, too.) Anyways, gonna go and buy The Fall now.

And yes, do finish watching Cowboy Bebop, Patrick. It's well worth the time.

Posted by hollitz

Most of Cowboy Bebop is filler junk. There's maybe 6 or 7 good episodes. The last few episodes are definitely the best ones.

Posted by HoboKnight

I need to check out the fall, especially since I discovered that a good friend of mine from back in high school was a writer on it.

Posted by AnotherSomebody

The Fall is a tad on the short side and some of the puzzle logic can be unfortunately obtuse, but it's worth the (low) price of admission. Stellar visuals, surprisingly satisfying combat, excellent acting, and a well told and unique story.

It's just a shame that it got buried in steam. I don't know when it came out, but the only reason I found it is because I dug several layers deep into the "Under $5" category. I don't recall ever having seen this featured in any way on steam. Hopefully they can garner enough attention and sales to justify a sequel. While the ending in and of itself could have just been what is was and still felt complete, it tucked in a good ol' "To Be Continued" so obviously they plan for more.

Edited by development

Hah. My immediate thoughts were "this has serious Limbo and The Swapper" vibes. Different mechanics, obviously, but the atmosphere is similar to both. Looks great.

Also yeah, Cowboy Bebop is just high-brow tentacle porn.

Giant Bomb is so boring now.

Posted by Mr_Creeper

What's a 'Cowboy Bee-Bop?'

Posted by Nasar7

You're gonna carry that weight, anime editor Patrick Klepek.

Posted by MooseyMcMan

Is Cowboy Bebop actually good like Patrick says? I've never watched it/know nothing about it.

It's great. Memorable music and animation, endearing cast of characters who (generally) don't adhere strongly to tired archetypal tropes, creative scenarios in an episodic format, nice mix of action/comedy/drama... It's not gonna be utterly transcendent like Miyazaki when he's at his best, but in my experience it has a proven mass appeal.

Joss Whedon lists it as an influence for Firefly. I know some people despise Firefly and Joss Whedon, so if that's you please look beyond that. It's pretty different at the end of the day.

Posted by pweidman

Love the sci-fi vibe and visuals immediately. Well received. Installing(4.99 now). ty Patrick :)

Posted by scottygrayskull

"Must not misrepresent reality"

Huh... well that's certainly not going to come into play later on in the game.

Patrick as the new anime editor i am disappointed with your lack of understanding

Cowboy bebop transcends the "genre" of anime guys, guys anime isnt a genre, its Japanese wizards making drawings that move, guys i know asian stuff is all suuuper weird but lets not relegate all the stuff they make to a genre, this is serious, its not like its alllll about little girls in school and super saiyans, oh.....

if you like cowboy bebop it means you can stomach 2d animation (from a different culture) which means you are cool with good anime, its not that complicated, 90% of any medium is crap/rote, anime is no different. wah wah stop misunderstanding anime you bullies its art.

Yeah. Saying anime is a genre is the same as saying cartoons are a genre, or comics are a genre. There's a dramatic difference between Batman: The Animated Series and Looney Toons. Between Secret of NIMH and Ferngully. Between Maus and Family Circus.

And given the word "anime" really just means "animated", as in "animated film", to differentiate them from cartoons is silly. Even foreign films still get categorized in their actual genres, not just the fact that they're foreign.

What's your opinion on anime?

Posted by GunstarRed

I just rewatched the whole of Cowboy Bebop on Blu Ray recently, really clean and beautiful. I hadn't seen the whole show in quite some time and it's still not only one of the best anime shows I have ever seen, but one of the best TV shows in general. Such an incredible world they created, with backstories for all the main characters that are fleshed out just enough to have them interesting, but stay mysterious.

The Blu Rays aren't out in the US if I remember correctly, but the first set, not the second is region free apparently.

Posted by friendlypossum

Got The Fall as a result of this. Brilliant.

Posted by Corvak

Come for the reactions to the error in the anime reference, stay for the video games.

Edited by CakeTeleporter

People who talk about 'trancending the genre' or medium for that matter should have to fight China Miéville for the right to talk such utter balls.

(Then again people who bang on about the books in skyrim and in game notes in general should be made to give away any and all copies of Watchmen they own)

Posted by Amafi

@mooseymcman: One of the least tropey anime things I've seen. Which is still very tropey. You won't get fooled into thinking you're not watching anime or anything. It's tolerable though, as long as you don't come into it expecting anything more than a decent cartoon.
