  1. All those years ago I made a couple other anime sites. http://deathbygundam.com/ & http://windscar.com/ At one point I was going to make a variety of anime sites and Ancient Clan was going to be the primary hub for them all. Then life got in the way and my interests slowly faded. But its all good. I don't think I'll make any more anime sites, but I will expand on AC more in the future. And our anime forum is always open. Feel free to make status updates if you want, or upload some gallery pics, make some topics about a new anime you watched, etc. If you have any questions let me know. :D

    I never introduced myself. Then got myself into flame wars with DeathscytheX & Dubird. Never got myself banned until a certain April 1st twice for one hour each.

    That feels so recent yet by this September I will have been here for a decade.

    Was that the april fools when I put a message on the top of the forum that said something like: "Pssst, don't tell anyone, but you've been selected to have admin powers for today only. Ban anyone you want for 1 hour, go ahead.. they'll never know." ? And when someone put a name in and clicked ban, they'd ban themselves for an hour instead? That was a great april 1st. XD

  2. Ohhh. Thank you! :D My steam backlog is so massive right now. lol. I wish they'd go back to doing those daily and flash sales during the summer and winter sales. I swear the last 3 times I bought something during a Steam sale the game ended up in a humble bundle for the same price I bought it for, except the bundle would include 5-10 extra games. x_x


  3. The developers out right said they have no idea what the darkness is!? Wtf. XD they're removing any mentioning of "the darkness" throughout destiny 2 and when they figure out how they want to handle what the darkness is they'll explain it at a later date.. lmao. XD I can't believe i just heard that. XD The writers don't know what the big bad entity is that has turned the entire galaxy / universe into the state it's in now.. wow.

    I'm imaging Gandalf telling Frodo that he has a magic ring but has no idea who made it or what is coming after him to get it or how to destroy the ring. But he should definitely leave the shire and go into hiding. A story with no details or motivation. Lol. Destiny 2 is going to have an amazing plot. :shake:


  4. This has gotten me thinking about actual game longevity. What games in existence now has truely lasted 10 years or more with just their base game needed? Sure there can be expansions, but they'll still require that one base game that has lasted 10 years. The only one I can think of off the top of my head is World of Warcraft. Its 13 years old now. But about 4 years ago they had to start upgrading all the graphics and I'm assuming the game engine itself. Seeing as thats a PC game and the new graphics require a stronger GPU, CPU, etc. they were able to do it with no problem. But if it was a console game that would have been the end of life seeing as the initial console it came out on would have been outdated within that initial 9 year span. Any new game coming out for a console that says 'it will be a 10 year game' doesn't seem realistic at all to me. Maybe theres some other games out there I'm not thinking of, I'm sure theres some Indie game out there thats been going on for 20 years or some crap. But for AAA games, I can't think of many. Final Fantasy XIV has hit 7 years now and I'm wondering if it'll get a graphic overhaul soon. Guild Wars 2 is only 5 years old and it already needs an overhaul to it's engine. I could see it lasting 10 years, but barely unless the engine gets an overhaul. A new 10 year game would have to be as big as MMOs to keep people interested for that long of a span of time. Overwatch will probably last 5 years, maybe more. But theres only so many skins and game modes you can add until the player base eventually moves on to something else.


  5. Thanks for the link Strider. Those couple clips of WaW looks alot more like battlefield conquest than the War mode in the new CoD. I didn't care much for zombie mode and having to 'build' something. Same with arming a bomb in Search and Destroy. I would get farmed so often. x_x


  6. I watched this last week and thought it was pretty good.

    Spoiler

    Maybe I missed it, but did they ever explain why the AI wanted all humans killed on sight? They're pretty insignificant at this point considering the odds that a human will be born with those specific genetic markers to retake control of the city seems so inconceivable. All the AI would need to do is guard those key terminal points that such a person could jack in at. But even then.. why wouldn't the AI just destroy those locations anyway and eliminate it's only weakness? XD

    Maybe if we get a sequel we'll find out the city grew so large its making a land bridge to the moon or something.


  7. Hello. Welcome to AC. ^_^ What anime have you watched lately? Do you prefer more action style like DBZ? or maybe slice of life like Fruits Basket?

    As for how old this site is.. Ancient Clan has been around since May 1, 2000. 17 years now. lol. Amazing how time flies.


  8. When I first watch this trailer I thought it said "Hitman". So the entire time I watched it, I kept thinking he was going to kill that guy and then start murdering a bunch of people. XD The concept looks interesting, but I wonder if the game is being presented as a 'pick your own story' kind of game where every action you choose will result in a change in the plot for the rest of the game like a telltale game, or if the game is all about a few scenes like this one where the android replays the same scene over and over again in their head until the optimal solution is reached.


  9. I never played the first one. The amount of swearing in this trailer caught me by surprise. XD The cut scenes look great, but no in game footage still leaves me confused as to what type of game this even is.


  10. Huh.. looks like Nintendo is trying to rip off playstation's LittleBigPlanet, but instead of Sackboy they're using yoshi.. and instead of copying the vast amount of in game mechanics from littlebigplanet, they instead have implemented very minuscule approach. This must be aimed towards little kids because it looks so straight forward that I don't see any potential challenge in even playing it.


  11. This Mario game looks genuinely fun. I loved Mario 64 and this play style is very reminiscent of that while having all the new hat powers, vendors and upgrades. Looks great. :D


  12. War mode looks like a bad attempt at battlefield's conquest and overwatch's payload. No CoD player would want to purposefully play that game mode for the objective and get killed endlessly. Instead they'll all sit back with sniper rifles and keep farming newbs. I could barely watch that second video. The endless talking game dialogue annoyed the hell out of me. x_x


  13. I didn't realize this until yesterday. The count down timer was close to running out in that video I posted so I looked up some more about it.. turns out the game is speed run only to win it. Heres another video of a perfect run on an emulator. Activision was brutal. To beat this game you have to perfect speed run it, not die once and even then you'd only have 7 seconds of time to spare. XD This video is at double speed so it looks a bit fast. No mistakes can be made. wtf. XD

    That was the first game I ever hated. Atari games hold their charm because the vast majority of them were about getting the highest scores rather than completing them to get an ending. I can't even remember one that had an ending.

    Pitfall was the only game i knew of that had an ending. Look how bad it was:

  15. I might selectively remember some games more fondly than others but I doubt anyone remembers playing E.T. with any enjoyment. XD I'll always remember the day I played it for the first time at my Uncle Tom's house. 5 minutes in and I didn't know if I died or if the game froze so I asked my uncle tom what I was supposed to do.. He said I must have beaten it and to move onto another game. He had at least five copies of that game. XD


  16. Its probably a retro box with all their classics redone in HD. That would be cool. Or maybe this is all an elaborate move on their part to focus on the 2600, while the real reveal is actually this long awaited sequel that should have been released on the 2600 all those years ago:

    Years in the making indeed.. many years.

    I think you suffer from selective nostalgia, because I do it too.

    I'm sure if I played Super Metroid again now it'd piss me off. XD *puts back on rose tinted glasses as I remember things the way I want to* XD

  18. They took alot inspiration from Last of Us and turned it into a God of War game. This will be awesome. Those visuals look amazing too.


  19. I still haven't played Skyrim and I have it installed and waiting too. What mods do you recommend? The first game I tried on max settings was StarCraft 2. My god.. I was playing it on my laptop at lowest settings and getting 8 frames per second in the second campaign whenever I had a zerg with Kerrigan. That game looks so beautiful on max settings compared to what I was playing it for years. XD


  20. Super Metroid was the last really fun Metroid game for me. I could handle the back tracking in it because it was fun, but in Metroid Prime it felt like a way for the dev to artificially inflate the game's completion time. :P Rise of the Tomb Raider had alot of back tracking in it, but it worked because of the active plot, new npcs to talk to and new upgrades that allowed access to new locations. But from what I remembered of metroid all I kept doing was double backing for 15 minutes to go blow up a wall, get an orb or something and then go all the way back to where I was before. Maybe I'm remembering it wrong but it felt boring. XD


  21. I had to rewatch the trailer to notice the female bikini bottoms. The main thighs burned my eyes so bad I didn't even notice what the female character was wearing. XD I'm used to seeing men sexualized in games with no shirts, biceps and shoulders bigger than an average person's head and of course they have 8-12 pack abs.. but for smaller sized characters I guess they have to start emphasizing the package down below more. lol. Before we know it we'll see dick bulges down there as a standard like in Conan Exiles. XD


  22. I never beat Metroid Prime 1. It burned me out with back tracking. lol. I was going to get back to it some day but it never happened. I think the biggest problem with Metroid is the sexualization of Samus with her zero suit. They took the first and strongest female video game character of all time and turned her from a bad ass in armor into spank material for young teenage boys.
