Wow, I knew Konami were jerks but this is a whole nother level! http://asia.nikkei.com/magazine/20170622/Business/The-hard-life-of-an-ex-Kon Jun 22, 2017 at 1:14 PM

        Sad thing about prequels is that this awesome kid with pyrokinetic and illusionary powers became a man that can at most control the mind of one girl and toss stuff around.

        What can you do, limitations of the system at the time and all. I wouldn't be opposed to a remake of the original MGS but I doubt Konami would acquiesce that.

        Tbh, I'd sooner set their building on fire than let Konami do a remake of MGS1, too much has changed for a successful recreation of that atmosphere, it would be just pale copy of things no longer understood.

      Did you hear about the BBC Sherlock team taking on Dracula as their next project?

        Oh ok. Im curious about how they are gonna adapt it to fit a a seasonal model. Dracula feels like a miniseries to me rather than an ongoing show

        Aye, I do also worry about how they'll portray Dracula. I want a monster, not a sparkly Twilight vampire.

        I could see Moffat and Gattis not doing that. Gattis even played a scary vampire in BBC Being Human (he was awesome). the bigger issue is would it be a period piece or set in modern day?

        It's...certainly unique given that it's a sci-fi reimagining in the far future. But it's very faithful and keeps the vast majority of the plot unchanged if condensed. Also has one of the strangest (but still cool) art styles I've ever seen. O_O

        It's good to hear it's kept pretty faithful to the original story, even with a sort of sci-fi twist to it. ^^ I'll definitely have to get into it sometime soon.

        It very much reminds me of that "Romeo and Juliet" film with Di Caprio where it's set in modern day but is otherwise the exact same plot. Except you know, Monte Cristo is far better than R&J. :3

      Hey! ^^ As The Count of Monte Cristo is one of your favourites, I thought I'd ask: as I have the abridged version, would you recommend reading the unabridged, or am I not really missing much but filler?

        ...I genuinely did not know there is an abridged version. I can see why though, there are some long digressions that aren't relevant such as a long talk about Italian food. Hmm, looking it up online tells me that the abridged version cuts out the outcome of a couple of supporting characters' fates as well as suffers from characters acknowledging cut scenes. My gut would say go with Unabridged personally.

        I don't see why not. After all, BBC's Sherlock makes a reference to Arthur Conan-Doyle still existing and being a mystery writer in it's universe. In fact, you could have a bunch of episodes inspired by the horror stories that Poe wrote. :)

        While I'm extremely hyped for "The Reflection" because Stan Lee is involved, I have a sneaking suspicion that "Welcome to the Ballroom" might be the sleeper hit of this season.

        One of my BIGGEST hopes for the English dub of this is that they get the original voice of Ash from the first region and half of the second region. That would be all I want for this movie

        I think the thing that truly bugs me about the trailer is that I was expecting a faithful retelling of the original story, and yet I think the only Gen 1 Pokémon I saw there was Pikachu. From that trailer alone, it really feels like they're cramming in stuff from later seasons and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

        That's the one! So their was another audio drama then. And also Hurricane Touchdown dragged on. The US Movie fixed the pacing a ton. (Although the Children being trapped in Cocomon was eerie)

        Hurricane Touchdown was definitely one of the weaker movies IMO, it doesn't even have the honour of being canon. As for my favourite movie, I'd probably go with Our War Game. It was just so amazing.

        That's not too surprising considering it wasn't exactly marked a lot in the US for it to get proper attention outside of Japan and the anime community.

        "Blackquill" came from a video game franchise I was obsessed with but have since fallen out of love with. So I decided to change it up and use a name I was called IRL instead.

        Lol, it's nothing too dramatic. If anyone's seen the English dub of Digimon then you'd know there's a character called "Izzy" in that who's a computer whiz. Quite a few of the people in my class at school were Digimon fans so when our school had the first computer installed and I was the only person good at using it, so I got called "Izzy" and the name stuck. :P
