Re: VGP 341 Discussion Topic: Atmosphere!

Ooh, I've got two from off the top of my head. The first one is a pretty well-known one: Fort Frolic from Bioshock. It just captures everything that's so good with Bioshock's setting. Madmen, horror, decrepit luxury and water everywhere. It also helps that it's fairly open and non-linear, so rather ...

Re: AP 623 - Loli Day

Hmm, the first one that comes to mind is Furude Rika from Higurashi. She's pretty memorable because she turns out to not just be the pure moe blob she initially seems to be. A pretty cool twist that adds tonnes of depth to her character. https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.anime-plan...

Re: British Museums manga exhibition

That looks like a really awesome exhibit. Makes me wish I could've gone. The ones arranging it definitely knew their stuff. Makes me wonder if all the visitors were already inocculated into the manga fandom or if the exhibition managed to snare some new prospects. :)

Re: AP 621 - Otaku

That's an interesting question, because I usually don't feel like one. There are certainly a lot of people who are way more into their anime fandom than I am. Then I look around and realize that I do own a LOT of manga, as well as a bunch of anime figures. So I... guess I am? Just not one who obviou...

Re: AP 620 - How You Watch?

I mostly watch stuff on my computer nowadays since I have a Crunchyroll subscription, though I do own a sizeable collection of anime DVDs and blurays that I watch on my TV, but that's the exception rather than the rule. Way back in the early days of my anime fandom I'd "acquire" episodes off of the ...

Re: AP 617 - Gateway Drug

I actually used Black Lagoon as an introductory anime for one of my friends. It's over-the-top, sure, but it's still basically an action flick set in a pretty realistic setting, so it's fairly easy to digest for a newbie. Nothing too nuts. Though I did get him into some weirder stuff eventually (lik...

Re: VGP 337 Discussion Topic: Scariest Enemy In A Game!

Two enemies come to mind; one from my childhood and one from now that I'm an adult. Minor spoilers for Silent Hill and SOMA ahead. The one from my childhood is the little ghost baby from the first Silent Hill. It can't harm you in any way, but entering the room it's in causes your enemy-detecting ra...

Re: AP 607 - Bad Dads (No Tuckers)

While there are a lot of well-known bad dads I'm gonna go for a few more obscure ones. https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fshounen.chungyc.org%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2009%2F11%2Fominous-kinzo-512x289.jpg&f=1 Ushiromiya Kinzou from Umineko no Naku Koro ni is a smörgåsbord of dysfunction...

Re: AP 606 - Best Dad's

All Might might not technically be anyone's dad, but he acts as a mentor and father figure for Deku (And later Bakugo as well) and is genuinely devoted to their growing up and developing into proper heroes. In a series that has one of the worst dads it's refreshing to also have someone like All Migh...

Re: AP 602 - Worst Mums

I WOULD mention the mum from Hanasaku Iroha, but you've already hit that one. There's Ragyo from Kill la Kill who's totally insane and uses her own daughter as a guinea pig for the weird... clothing... aliens she's allied herself with. https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fv...
