Erik and Brandon decide to give the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Beta a whirl. DMX decided to take over.
Sometimes The Internet gets drunk and says something stupid and you want to complain... or let us know how we're doing.
Kaz, I’ve already been spoiled!
I started this column 2 years ago under a single pretext. To combat the notion that anime was dead, that it was a broken thing that could ultimately be fixed. That maybe, just maybe if some producer listened to some old animefag on the internet that possibly it could be mended. Of course I never actually expected anyone to really listen to my insane rants and ideas for shows to fix anime.
I wrote all of these articles (this will be article 90 btw) with the intention that it would end 2 years or 100 articles in. I knew that there would certainly be more faults to be covered even given such a large time-frame, but I had an ulterior motive writing this. A motive knowing that I wouldn’t be listened to, that unless a radical 180 occurred in the industry – would still remain true. I knew that this all along wasn’t really for some anime producer – hell it was barely for your amusement dear reader. This was in a way my note, the final act of a major part of my life.
Because I am done with anime.
I know, 2 Nippon posts in a row – where’s the game theory article you ask? Well this and the following week will be Nippon-Sempai articles due to next week being the final article of Nippon-Sempai. Yes by today’s date it’s been a full 2 years since I started this, and I’ll leave the reason why I’m ending it (because it’s not from a lack of faults to continue pointing out) for next week, this week let’s talk about Prism Ark.
One of the best things about playing RPGs is that you get to act like someone else. After all, what’s the point of doing exactly what you would do in real life all the time? Sometimes though, even the characters act a little out of character.
In today’s world of the newly minted 5e, there are those who still long for the absurd bullshit and homebrew that was the manipulation of 3.0 and 3.5. Most of my DMing adventures will center around my players doing absurd shit, funny RPing, or funny criticals (both crit failures and crit successes) in my homebrew campaign. This post is for establishing the characters in my campaigns and their (up to now) personalities and will be regularly updated/linked back to as the campaign progresses and more posts come out. Look for the first post, coming out this Sunday!
There’s been a lot of talk in the media recently about race relations in our modern world, and there’s been many figures in both media, politics, and sports called to task about their racism. While it’s been mentioned before it’s time though for someone to really formally call out anime for not only how racist it is, but how unapologetic it is about it.
With the Sega Genesis, and the Sega Dreamcast back in the day it really looking like there would be a 3-legged race between Sega, Nintendo, and Sony. Sadly though heralded by the N64 and Playstation the dream of a 3rd major console would have to wait for Microsoft to make a box. Fans and old-fashioned gamers though will tell you about how the Dreamcast’s fate was sealed by being simply too ahead of it’s time.
I have to wonder if the possibility exists that all anime producers were secretly disowned by the parents for going into the devil’s profession. Considering how parents are treated (or lack of) in most animes it’s clear to say that most animes have some serious parental issues.
