    Yes Please... I really loved the dark take on A Woman Called Fujiko Mine. This one looks to go back to the light hearted comedic style. I have no problem with that. Lupin has always been one of my favorite series. I love the old animation style mixed with new effects.

    I played ep 1 of A New Frontier and you can definitely tell they made it a lot more console friendly. Which in turn makes it easier on PC as well. Bashing/stabbing walker heads is now just an action button press. Its Q and E on PC so I'll assume it was Square and X on PS4 where you mashed one and pressed the other when you filled the meter... but for melee prompts they swap it up between the two, and sometimes the left/right/up/down will be melee... but when that happens its during intense scenes as if you would have dodged anyways. So they don't mix it up too much. I even had a shooting sequence that was in classic form but much easier.... basically the super wobbly head motion paired with the shaky cursor is gone... that was pretty annoying even with a mouse.
    The game looks a lot sharper than the first. The dialog was much improved when searching too.. it feels a bit more natural when you interact with items that you can't use. I mean that wasn't really a knock on the first game, and it didn't really need an improvement. But its interesting how they made it feel more realistic rather than a normal sigh or headshake and a "busted" or "we wont be able to use that" line.
    The choices you made in season two seem to affect flashbacks rather than this story. You can use your save data Mass Effect style, Start fresh, or even use your save data and change choices you made. I assume you can pick and choose, but I went ahead and stuck with my decisions... I don't like to take back, even if I regret my choices... that's what I love about continuity games.

    I just watched this and it was actually really good. I saw on facebook this has been approved for an 8 ep 2nd season as well. This season is basically a movie cut up in to 4 eps... they honestly could have just played it through.
    Pros: Great animation... finally a western animation that isn't cartoony bullshit with realistically drawn humans. The sounds are great, music is limited to necessary moments. Very little time is spent on world building without completely leaving those new to Castlevania lore in the dark. No origins story here, There is a premise and you're thrown straight into it after that. No lengthy intro sequence you'll just skip after the first time you watch it. The gore is spectacular. Limited subtle humor that fits with what is going on when its injected.
    Cons: The voice acting isn't terrible, but there is a lot of whisper-y characters. No one is straining their vocals for these roles that's for sure. It's only 4 episodes with a Legend of Legendary Heroes type finale... If you didn't know a second season was approved, you'd be pretty upset.

    Sledge you won't be disappointed, HIMYM is an amazing show. I was heartbroken when they ended it as it's probably one of my favorite shows ever (great humor, great cast (NPH does an amazing job portraying Barney), and some of the best jokes I've heard in years).
    Sadly I can't really say I have many favorite old TV shows as growing up I never really had control of the TV (my father controlled it and we spent a lot of time watching Wrestling and random stupid shit I couldn't get into) and when I did I spent most of that time watching cartoons. The only real shows I got into were Star Trek Voyager (the one show both my father and I liked watching), Star Trek: TNG, X-Files (I was a huge X-Files junky up until Mulder disappeared, could never get into it after that), the good shows on MTV (like Daria), and a few other shows here and there (yea the 90's kid in me shows, I was also a huge Power Rangers fan (the one show I watched religiously)).

    Rodan is really the only big name next to Godzilla. I was hoping for Gigan, Destoroyah, or of course Ghidorah.

    I finished season 2 and it was pretty depressing. It was good to see an old face, but man they really made it hard by doing that. I stuck with him until the end and chose to listen to him. I'm surprised how it was 50/50 on the final fight for most people... especially with the Lee flashback right before it.

    If you haven't watched "The Guild" on netflix yet I recommend it just to see Erin Gray's cameo in the last half of the show. One of the main characters is obsessed with her and when he runs into her at a convention his obsession takes full control. The first season of the guild is all crappily made with a web cam, but the second half of the show is packed with celebrities thanks to the convention episodes.
    TV for years have sucked because of all the endless reality shows that cost hardly anything to produce and thus it leads to maximum profits for the channels. Only recently has TV started to become good again, mostly thanks to the SYFY and CW channels. There have been so few good tv shows that I can list pretty much every good one off the top of my head. Over the past 10 years some of my favorite shows have been: Battlestar Galactica, TWD, Vikings, Badlands, Dark Matter, Killjoys, Z-Nation, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, The 100, Expedition Unknown, Destination Truth, Josh Gates Destination Truth (new episodes, just started this year), Mythbusters, Psych (my favorite comedy for a long time, theres even a movie coming out for it on USA channel later this year), Chuck (the last season sucked, the rest of the show was amazing), Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction, River Monsters (just finished it's last season), Fringe (the last season sucked horribly).. I'm sure I enjoyed some more too, but over half of these shows have only started in the last 3 years.
    I watched so many old tv shows when I was younger. Buck Rogers was great, Quantum Leap was amazing. But my all time favorites were all the Star Trek series from the original all the way thru Voyager. Star Trek Enterprise was horrible tho but doesn't count as an old series. Some more favorites of mine were Babylon 5, Sliders, Stargate SG-1, The X-Files, Sliders, and Space: Above and Beyond.
    Heres my really old favorites I watched as a kid:
    The original BSG:
    I used to watch Doctor Who all the time back on PBS with my dad. All those years ago I'd even watch the old black and white episodes. That was some of the best sci-fi ever:
    The Twilight Zone was an amazing series and I'd catch episodes of those whenever I could:
    Lost in Space is a classic:
    The Outer Limits was a complete knock off of Twilight Zone, but it had some great episodes too.

    Today TV sucks... at least it does for me. If its not a reality TV show, its a cop or doctor show. Since the turn of the century I've enjoyed maybe 4-5 series. LOST, TWD, Into the Badlands, and Vikings are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. 3 of those 4 are pretty recent. I use to watch all kinds of shows growing up, and oddly enough even most of those were reruns of older shows before my time. What were some of your favorites growing up? 
    I loved this show so much.... Gil Gerard was such a terrible actor. I didn't care though, the special effects for the time were amazing, the blasters were cool looking, the ships were awesome... and Erin Gray was a goddess. She was my very first celebrity crush. Netflix had Season 2 for the longest time, but never season 1 which was disappointing to me.
    Yeah, I'm a sci-fi junkie and I'm still waiting on Space 2099... eh probably fell through. I loved this show too because the premise was so absurd. Earth would be so fucked without the moon, and it kinda hinted at it in the first episode when the accident happened. Behind the scenes this show was a complete train wreck, which lead to its demise.
    Man oh man, what memories. So many great episodes I remember to this day. Elvis, Lee Harvey Oswald, The Chimpanzee, The Evil Leaper, and the series finale. All three of these shows came into my life because of the launch of the Sci-Fi (SyFy) channel. I'd soak up all the old reruns, and I got to see every episode of this series because of it. The suspense of Sam not being able to leap was so well done in every episode it never really got worn out. The acting was top notch... but you only have to look at the cast to see why. I could go on, but I know I'd be taking up every show eventually before anyone else gets to post.

    I'm glad the Pillows are doing the music for this still to keep the same feel OST-wise.
  11. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by DeathscytheX in Favorite Game OST   
    Ah yes, I can't leave out my most played game. Ole Dragon's stand. A whole map made into a meta event that lasts at least an hour. I'll never forget when I first got here, I knew very little about it since HoT was so new. I ran my lane and fought the bosses thinking how epic it was, and then was blown away by the giant serpent dragon boss at the finale. This music ran the whole time giving it such a thrilling experience.
    Yeah I can't pick just one.
  12. DeathscytheX liked a post in a topic by Strider Hiryu in Favorite Game OST   
    While I chose this track the whole OST is a fucking eargasm of amazing music, this is just the culmination when you beat the game (and considering how it ends this song is extremely fitting). As of playing this game this has been and will always be my favorite soundtrack of any game (ABZU comes in second but I have yet to beat the game). This game has no voice acting and little to no story (except for what you make of it) except for snippets on random walls/shrines. The game relies entirely on the soundtrack to set its pace and it couldn't of done a better job. If you never get the chance to play the game do yourself of favor and listen to the soundtrack, its definitely worth it.
    Of course I had to put a FFXIV song here. If it wasn't for this trailer/video I probably never would of started playing FFXIV and I freaking adore this song (I've listened to it on repeat so many times I actually have it memorized, song's name is Answers btw). Such a beautiful song and by far my favorite one off the entirety of FFXIV's discography (which is massive now and has some amazing music. Other personal favorites include Titan's Theme, Ramuh's Theme, Dragonsong (the theme song for Heavensward), and Revolutions (theme song for Stormblood)). FYI this video is how they wrapped up the story from the failed 1.x version of FFXIV and what led us into A Realm Reborn.
    There's plenty more I could post but those two stand out the most for me. Honorable mentions would be Zone of the Ender's OST (first game, I wasn't really into the 2nd Runner's OST), Ace Combat 5 and 0's OST (both extremely good soundtracks), Chrono Cross's OST (there are some amazing songs in those 3 discs), and every Chocobo Theme ever produced (hey I love the Chocobo Themes).

    I know I made a topic like this a long time ago, but a ton of games have come out since then. What are you favorite/most memorable original game tracks?
    This is still my all time favorite track. The powerful start still sends chills through my spine. I'll never forget when a friend handed me a demo disc for the first game before it came out which featured the start with the ship, ending with the Hydra boss. I was so blown away by how awesome it was I couldn't wait for the full game. Then after falling in love with how the first game played, and its story I was hyped for this game when it was announced. The opening was just epic.
    It's really tough for me to pick just one track from this game. As a whole its probably my favorite total OST of any game. But this track sticks with me because its from one of the most intense parts of the game that had a huge sense of urgency while it kept you in side scroll camera mode. You'd have to play it to understand how powerful the moment was. From about 1:40 and beyond was the section used for this mission.
    Ace Combat's first game got that ole fashion rename/mistranslation. PS1 shows up on the scene, games were true 3D experiences for the first time. I was like 12-13 when this came out, and I remember going to a friends house to spend the night and we stayed up playing this game til the morning. We were blown away, and this music was such a rush. Ace Combat was literally the first game I ever got my hands on in the Playstation era, and the rest is history.

    I just hope they release Starfox 2 for the Switch. I'd buy it.... and its the only reason I'd want an SNES classic.

    You have to remember that The Last of US was a PS3 game. The PS4 may have made it look a bit nicer, but there is only so much more that could have been done without overhauling with a complete update.

    All those years ago I made a couple other anime sites. & 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.
    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.

    XIV doesn't need a graphics overhaul considering this iteration is only 4 years old (you have to remember the original XIV or 1.0 in this instance failed hard and the game was scrapped, rebuilt from the bottom up, and re-released as ARR or 2.0). Stormblood is amazingly beautiful, they really upped the graphics quality with this release (they redid nothing but they utilize DirectX 11 now, instead of 9 like they did with ARR). I expect to see XIV go on for at least another 5-6 years considering it's still growing (last count was 8+ million subscribers) and if they keep releasing a quality game (launches with standing, they can't seem to get that shit right) and continue their patch cycle (every 3 months we get new content) this game will go on for a long while.
    You also forget FFXI, its been out for 15 years and has not seen any major graphic overhauls (minor gameplay ones) and it's currently the longest running MMO to date (then again Everquest is still technically running) and it's due for a Mobile release soon (don't really know the details but it's a scaled down version of FFXI). Fuck people still play the game religiously.
    WoW's game engine hasn't seen any real improvements, it's still technically the same engine but they've expanded it to do a lot more then it was originally capable of (graphically included, the graphics overhaul was because Blizzard thought it was time to leave the cartoony graphics behind (though it's still pretty cartoony).
    Honestly we won't see another major iteration in consoles for another year or two and that will most likely be out of Sony more than Microsoft. MS already stated they won't be releasing a new console and wish to only improve upon the XBone going foward, maybe releasing newer versions like the S and X (considering how much money and time they put into the X they would be retarded to start developing a new console now). If anything generations are gone, we'll be stuck with similar consoles only slightly more powerful than the last. Ultimately I think the goal is to go modular, like a computer and allow us to upgrade parts going forward. While that may sound stupid it's actually not. It'll allow gamers who can't afford high-end computers to get into gaming at a cheaper cost and allow them to upgrade as they need to any parts going out of date (instead of spending $2100 like I did on my computer someone can go out, pick up whatever iteration of the XBone we're on for lets say $500, and then down the line buy a new graphics card/cpu/etc. This in the long run is much cheaper as they're still paying a smaller fee to get in whereas no matter what I'll always be spending more since my initial in was $2100). Meh, you can take that as you will but honestly I don't foresee anything more out of consoles, generation wise, other then slightly better versions coming out.

    Hi everyone, I hope that you are having a good day. My name is Alex and I've been a fan of anime since I was a kid. 
    BTW, am I on the right thread to do some introduction? I hope you can forgive me for being such an intruder.
