  1. That's kind of sad that Carmack would switch like that. Doom had it's freaky moments when you are thrown into a room with flickering lights, not a lot of ammo, and the hordes of Hell before you. It wasn't terror inducing, but that's what a better engine could have pulled off. I hope they try and bring the fun back in knowing there's probably three bull demons, a Hell Baron, and God knows how many imps through that door, and you're low on plasma.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Shin Chan, Gundam, and Godzilla. But they all are pop culture icons that Japan will not let go of, no matter what happens. I listed them for sake of example. Consider that Godzilla's 50th anniversary movie flopped, and the first thing that was announced was that the series will come back after a five to ten year hiatus. If people love it, it's not being killed. The real power keeping Gundam alive is that if a series sucks, they just reboot for the 50 millionth time. There's, what, 7-9 different timelines, not including SD?
  3. Dammit, spambot gets another victim. Hopefully we'll learn to pay more attention to the post dates.

    Tell that to: Kamen Rider Ultraman Chibi Maru Chan Sazae San Shin Chan Poke'mon Gundam Doraemon Godzilla This is Japan, when something gets popular, they can latch on for life if a company is willing to push it. Not even the creator's death has stopped some of those I listed. There's more, those are just ones that come to mind off the top of my head. You should see how religiously people play Tekken in the arcades. I was here three years ago when 5 came out, and returned in time to see 6 hit the arcades. The game looks the Goddamn same, but the crowd is just as big. They'll be playing this series to the end of time, or the end of Bandai Namco, whichever comes first.

    Being that this is a rebuild of the TV series, they're changing the ending that the TV series showed, which sucked. I couldn't stand the fact that nothing, nothing was resolved save Shinji stopped whining through psychadelic hallucinated group therapy. Not to mention the budget ran out, and they showed storyboards and even photos of the script to pass off as a scene. Some argue it was artistic, I felt it was a slap to the face. I am completely looking forward to see how they handle the end.
  6. The Splatterhouse series was insanely creepy. If they can keep that atmosphere, with ungodly abominations and their howls of terror, I'll be pleased. I'm curious to see if they'll keep it more of a beat'em up, which are relatively rare now, or try and cash in on the survival horror genre that pretty much replaced the Splatterhouse series.
  7. So little faith have you in a giant glowing ball of energy. According to Street Fighter II The Animated Movie, Hadouken is the stronger move. I'd take Hadouken for the range.

    Maybe, but the term geek is too broad in my opinion. For example, otaku are often compared to being like the trekkies, a term I also see no problem in using. If I tell you I am a geek, you have a slightly different perception of my interests than if I were to say I was a trekkie. The same goes for gamer too. Basically these are sub groups of what being a nerd/geek has become. An otaku is a geek/nerd focused more on anime, (generally) Japanese console/handheld based video games, or other (I collect Godzilla stuff), and they're not necessarily smart either, which is what nerd would imply.

    I've been called an otaku by my Japanese dormmates for having a Brawl tournament in our community room. They'd probably label everyone on this site as one too. Really, you can find your "pathetic piles of humanity" in just about any social group, and it shouldn't drag the entire group down with it. Otaku is a perfectly usable label for both the mild fans, and the eccentric morons. And yeah, Japan is cool and all, but living here for an extended period of time kills the "magic", although I don't think I ever attested to it being the "greatest place ever".
  10. Ha, I remember this from long ago. Back when it was actually relevant.
  11. Incidentally, when I found this thread, it was right below the OCR-Tan thread. I think she's a pretty obvious choice.

    Hey Brushfire, just curious, but do you know of Hobby JAPAN? http://www.hobbyjapan.co.jp/hobbyjapan/ I can find it in most convenient stores here in Nagoya. It's how I know of the Code Geass figurines I mentioned earlier and such. After seeing the extent of your collection, and your efforts I just figured I'd ask. It's how I find the existence of a lot of what's out there, even though I can barely read it.

    There's alot of that stuff available for purchase Brushfire. In fact I'm miffed that I can't find that many models of the mecha compared to the figurines of Geass's female cast. I'm hoping with Gundam 00 on hiatus Bandai will put out some more Geass models, and not figurines of Karen and CC.

    Yep, Code Geass still aired as normal. A bunch of TVs at the Jusco where I live were showing it. I was slightly surprised though, as I thought the show aired later in the day than 5:00.
  15. No Goro, Coop? I think he and Doomsday would make an awesome sub boss pair. I'd also love to see Steel in this too, but I don't think that's very likely. It's going to be interesting to see how the real roster pans out on this game.
  16. I've got to agree with Jam Stunna. This really has nothing to do with Capcom's game making ability, just someone insignificant who will probably now be at the worst canned. Capcom's guys continue making games unchanged, and the next box art designer is more cautious at his job. A 'fiasco' would be an event that hindered Capcom much more than that.

    Really? Me thinks you might not be looking hard enough. I find plenty of anime related stuff all over the place. Then again, I live in the middle of Nagoya. I've no idea how easy it is to find stuff outside of the major cities.
  18. True, but I think the success of Fire Emblem shows the Shining series has an excellent chance to renew its fanbase.
  19. It hurts the chances for a fan of the series to a halfway decent attempt of a film anytime in the near future. Fans may often be overly picky about adaptations, but they don't deserve the crap Uwe puts out.
  20. In no particular order, and I'll be damned if I try to rank these against one another... King of the Monsters - NeoGeo (needs more VC love in general) Earthbound - SNES Earthbound Zero - NES (the translated cart exists dammit) Fire Emblem 3 - SNES Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3 - NES But really, there's alot of great stuff being put forward in this thread. Any of it being released in the near future will make me happy.
  21. You think that's old, when my family bought an NES, we had to buy one of those rabbit ear adapters for the RF switch which was fastened to the TV set via two screws. It's still hooked up that way in my family's basement. It's weird to consider that many high schoolers today were born after the advent of the SNES, which means that if they are first borns, it's pretty likely that they never played an NES. Heck, I've read posts and blogs about people reminiscing about Star Fox 64 and other games circa '96 being their first forays into gaming because they were only four or five at the time.
  22. Yo, I'm Jon Edwards. A friend showed me OCR in high school and I've been using the site as a music and geek-related news source ever since. I realized recently that said introduction happened five years ago this past March, and coupled with the donation thread, I figured it was about time I actually put up an account.
  23. I figure signing up and donating is a good way to celebrate five years of lurking at OC Remix. Keep up the good work guys. (+$10)
