Not sure where it would go maybe the rising sun but i don't know
After a horrific car crash, Dr Tenma lost his beloved son Tobio. Out of grief, he built a robotic son named Astro as a replacement; but soon after, Dr Tenma had the boy deactivated and put into a deep sleep. In the present, the scientist Dr O'Shea finds Astro and risks everything to reactivate him, train him to be a hero of justice, and raise him to be a functioning member of society. Amidst the prejudice of humanity, the pacifistic Astro will promote peace, battle the forces of injustice, and attempt to bridge the gap between humans and machines.
it's a remake of one of the greatest anime series of all time and the animation is very beautiful i could totally see on TA i would like it to go with Cyborg 009 when ever that shows up on here.
So my fellow gamers, E3 is yet again apon us to bring us all the new games and such we can be looking forward to coming out in the end of the year and the beginning of next year.
Use this topic to discuss all things E3 2012. what are your thoughts? what did you see that made you go "wow" or what are you looking forward to from what you've seen? who had the best press conferences? If it has something to do with E3 2012, feel free to share it here
Pokémon: The Movie 2000 : The Power of One
Description: A greedy collector, Lawrence III, wants to capture the legendary Pokemon, Lugia. But in order to do so, he must capture the Titans of Fire, Ice, and Lightning. The titans are powerful bird-like Pokemon, and if they are disturbed they will wage a war against eachother which will ultimately result in earth's destruction. Ash, Misty, and Tracey get caught up in the situation when they end up being washed ashore onto Shamouti Island. Soon after, Ash meets a girl named Melody who sends him into a mission where he must collect the 3 Orbs which will quell the fighting, but first Ash must gain help from the Beast of the Sea, Lugia, if he's to suceed.
Reason: Since Heavy's suggestion seems so popular, and since this movie along with the first and the third are pretty awesome and nostalgic, I feel this movie fits on TA (especially if we end up showing Orange Island saga). It also played on Toonami.
Pokémon 3: The Movie : Spell of the Unown
Description: Young Molly Hale is a 5-year old girl who has lost her father to the Unown, a strange group of Pokemon who can make a person's dreams real by using their Psychic energy. One day she accidently releases the Unown, and they begin to answer Molly's wishes; first by creating Entei, a legendary lion-like Pokemon who Molly then thinks is her father because he always pretended to be Entei when he played with her. Molly then feels lonely because she has no mother, so Entei decides to kidnap Ash's mother and forces her to become Molly's. Ash, Brock, and Misty must then try to save Ash's mom, Delia, and Molly; And in the process they must also try to find a way to stop the Unown from turning the town of Greenfield into a bizarre crystal wasteland.
Reason: 3 words: Post-Apocalyptic Pokémon World. But for real, this movie is pretty good for a Pokémon film. Its probably my 3rd favorite (following the first and second) and probably where I draw the line for pokémon films lol. I think its quite nostalgia worthy not to mention that it was also played on Toonami. So why the hell not add it to a Sunday film lineup.
Show: Pokemon: Orange Islands
Description: After completing the indigo league championship and returning home, Ash plans to travel to the orange islands with Misty, Pikachu, and Brock, who later leaves. They later run into a Pokemon watcher named Tracey.
Time Slot: 4:00 pm (upon completion of the original Pokemon series)
Reason: I am sure some dedicated fans of the Pokemon would like to not only relive the original Pokemon series but to give the Orange Islands Series a start as well. Please give this show a chance I am sure you would like re-learn all the orange island Pokemon along the way. I like the Lapras that ash rides on during the journey.
For the Mods: If I miss any element of show suggestion in this thread, please let me know and i will be happy to make the changes.
While looking for his Father Kit Taylor finds an advent deck which allows him to become Kamen Rider Dragon Knight and joins other Riders to take on Xaviax
It came on while I was in 9th grade but I barely got to watch it but by 2010 i got into Kamen Rider but since we can't have subs this is the next best thing because it closely adapts the story it was based on. I could see it on here but only if Power Rangers came on to play next to it I think it would only work in that instense . what do you guys think
So as I was talking about earlier today with a fellow user (unnamed) who had his points for disagreeing, I figured I would start a Discussion Topic about it.
Movies, books, manga/graphic novels, music, paintings, sculptures, the list goes on. We all have our pleasantries in life, what we view as "art". Now admittedly, any old game can also be called "art" in its own way. But im focusing this more toward a serious direction. Gaming as we know it is more of entertainment. A momentary escape from reality, something based on fun and leisure. As are movies, books, etc. Yet we come to a road where these things must be taken more seriously, to be seen as a deeper form of art. Mindless, poorly written and developed sequel pushers such as
Infinity Ward, Rockstar certain companies dominate the market for the masses.
We get it, freedom to make as you see fit your own creations. We're all fans of different gameplays, they give their fans what they want etc etc fine and dandy but put in more than just a little effort and it can go a long way. There are valuable examples out there that stand out. Studios and games that went above and beyond to really tie together Enjoyment and Creativity in the gaming industry to create "Art" in a sophisticated and intellectual way. Feel free to fill in the blanks there.
TL;DR - Do you like the gaming industry as it stands? Standing atop are the big name money making studios producing essentially the same games year after year? Would you like to see more video games crack down and expand their horizons beyond best selling simple First Person Shooters and what have you? Or do you believe that there are enough "Artsy" games and you want more entertainment in gaming at the cost of further creativity?
If someone said I would spend 30 dollars on a game just to get a mod for it, I'd tell them they were crazy.
But I did it and it was totally worth it.
Day Z takes place in the country of Chenarus, a 225 km2 open world simulator where the only goal is to survive. Not only is the world infested with zombies, but you have to worry about other players too. Friend or foe? You won't know until it's too late.
This mod takes realism to a level I haven't seen before. You have to eat and drink to survive, you have to rest to regain stamina (otherwise you can't aim well), take medication to heal broken bones and cure your pains, and keep a healthy temperature or you'll die from a cold. As for weapons, they range from pistols to shotguns to machine guns to crossbows, but you'll spend a lot of time sneaking into zombie infested towns to get the best supplies. You can also find maps, compasses, and more to help navigate. However if you die, you have to start over with the basic equipment.
While this game can be challenging, and you might die a lot, it's a lot of fun. I've never had so much fun walking through an open world, completely paranoid that I might get sniped by another player or ambushed by zombies. The mod is still in alpha, so there are still bugs and issues, but all in all it's an amazingly fun game. I just spent 6 hours playing it with friends.
For more information, you can visit their website: http://dayzmod.com/
To play the game, you'll need to buy Arma II: Combined Operations(Arma II and Arma II: Operation Arrowhead) from Steam and download the necessary files from the Day Z website. Tutorials can be found in the forums if ya don't know how.
I also found a pretty neat play through of this mod on Youtube. In the first episode they start out in two different groups of 10 or so, but are slowly widdled down to 2.
For those who don't know Halo Legends is a collection of seven short anime films set in the Halo science-fiction universe. Financed by Halo franchise overseer343 Industries, the stories were created by six Japanese production houses: Bones, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio 4°C, and Toei Animation. Shinji Aramaki, creator and director of Appleseed and Appleseed Ex Machina, serves as the project's creative director. Warner Bros.
I was wondering since it is anime and it is also by Warner Bros that the first place it would go is toonami i was thinking it could be shown back to back like Interstella 5555 or be shown in segments what do you guys think
Here's the trailer
