  1. Yeah, I agree. I'm not a fan of the ridiculous technology creep we saw between F, 30, and Delta. Just when you think you have a grasp on the tech and its limitations, here comes another slew of rules and advances.
  2. I see that Zentradi-inspired Macross-style ship in the back on that one picture and I'm intrigued
  3. My only issue with your story is that, in canon, space folding is supposed to be limited by the exponentially-increasing amount of power required for a longer fold. While there is no mention of adverse effects on the human body, aside from that euphoric feeling people get while in fold space, I think exploring this phenomenon is interesting.
  4. So, I am having trouble deciding: Vive or Rift? I play mostly Steam games, so I'm leaning towards Vive. Looking forward to the new controllers that Valve is co-producing for it. Any suggestions or tips? My system is decent enough: Core i5 3570K OC'ed to 4.2 GHz, 16 GB RAM, GTX 970 w/ 4 GB VRAM.
  5. I, too, was in disbelief when I first saw that dark poster. The question that comes to mind is "Do they even focus group this crap before they dump it out into the world?!?" I swear, this is gonna be Dragonball Evolution all over again.
  6. Recently finished LoGH. Great series, a bit of a slow ending, but would otherwise recommend heartily. Goblin Slayer is done. Nice epic battle to finish off the season. Looking forward to more!
  7. Nice to see you fully developed your concept into production. Congrats!
  8. Picked up Slime Rancher from the Steam Summer Sale. Great buy! Good game to play if you just wanna chill for awhile and farm slime... poop.
  9. Congrats on finishing! This thread will probably go silent for awhile, until the next Macross series finishes...
  10. Either they have no case, and/or Epic is just gonna make their lives a living hell if they keep pushing the case. I'm sure there was some kind of leverage they had, since PUBG Corp. is using the UE.
  11. Had a family member get terminally ill during my staycation, so no work was done.
  12. Ah, I see you are also a man of culture. I'm starting to feel the need to upgrade my old-ass GPU (3570K) for the new WoW expansion and my GTX 970 is starting to sound like a jet engine under load. I think it needs new thermal paste...
  13. My gf and I have been watching Shokugeki no Soma and we love it. In the middle of season 3 right now. On my own, I'm watching LoGH, Yamato 2022, and SAOA: GGO. I'll get into the new season when I finish up some of my current shows.
  14. Taking the week off from work to take care of some personal stuff. Uploading a new chapter is on my to-do list. Just an FYI...
  15. Eye-popping! Great job!
  16. I finished Space Battleship Yamato 2199 a couple of weeks ago. It's good enough to be ranked "way up there" on my list of best animes I've seen so far. Despite the advanced tech described in the show, it felt like the writers gave careful consideration to make sure everything "made sense", from a real-world physics point of view. I couldn't find anything to complain about! The story was very engaging and I only wanted to see a bit more exposition on the return to Earth and the application of the Cosmo Reverser. 10/10 will recommend. Started with SBY 2202, looking good so far. Also following SAOA and LoGH:DNT. Loving LoGH too. SAOA just had a recap episode after 5 eps... not a good sign.
  17. Double post. If a mod can delete this, thanks.
  18. Sorry. I haven't been on the site in a couple of weeks. I only see the subtitled version on CR. It never gave me a choice. I'm up to episode 15 and it's been solid good so far and I'm really impressed.
  19. LoGH: Die Neue These SAOA: GGO I also started watching Space Battleship Yamato 2199. I never watched the original and have been meaning to for years. Thoroughly enjoying it so far!
  20. Even in the original, Oberstein looked like he had some crossed wires in his head. His voice actor is spot-on in this revamp. Is it the same guy?
  21. I think the underrepresentation of Jean's death was a good example of the "pruning" this show will ultimately receive to keep its length under control. However, I guess that means that his fiancee will also be relegated to the shadows in later episodes. ...unless the show's creators decide to do a bit of flashback content to give considerable weight to her relationship with Yang.
  22. Just wanted to put my $0.02 in... Saw it. Enjoyed it. Not as good as the first, but a decent popcorn flick. For some reason, I did get a "direct to home video" vibe from the movie, as it did kind of seem like the original's little brother.
  23. I just read some of the initial reviews on CR and one guy tears it up because he couldn't believe that the Empire was so easily able to destroy the Free Planets Alliance fleet. He doesn't yet understand that the point is to show how incompetent the FPA has become and Yang Wen-Li is going to whip it back into shape in no time. I wonder if Episode 2 will show the battle from Wen-Li's perspective... or at least the tail end of it where he manages to save what's left of the fleet. I am kind of hoping they trim a least some of the exposition out of the story. I know, I know... It will hollow out what made the original series so great. I just felt like it was dragging on a bit at times. If they do so, I hope they know what they're doing.
  24. Just watched the first episode and I am looking forward to (re)watching these two tactical titans clash in the stars. I got to about episode 50 in the original series before Sentai yanked all of the LoGH videos from YouTube. My favorite part was when
  25. Just finished Made in Abyss with my girlfriend. She's usually hard to please, but I caught her wiping tears from her face on that last episode. Good stuff! We've just started Children of the Whales, and it really gives me a Gargantia feel to it. But, it's still pretty interesting with its own unique story ideas.
