  1. Oh my god....I can hear my vid card crying already. :<
  2. Man...I thought SAO was great, but Psycho Pass has gone off the chart. Every episode is amazing and keeps you surprised every single time. *.*

      PP is dabes and fff all the haters its amazing

      I watched till episode 6, didn't grip me though... might give it another shot once it's over :O

    4. shayryu

      shayryu

      @Mochii The story-line and art is amazing, you should definitely give it another try. \o/

  3. Done with skyrim + expansions, all I got to say is: Come at me TESO, I'm ready for everything you throw at me. *.*

  4. Cinematic trailer. Not to bad. *.*
  5. I second that. (for now) Movements feels incredible clumsy, combat is dull, graphics aren't that impressive and the skills looks boring. The quests are incredible boring, you gotta walk all over the map just to talk to someone. Many people say "sex sells" but I wonder how long this game will last. Then again, it's closed alpha...The players shouldn't expect much from it anyway.
  6. I'm in the alpha of scarlet blade. \o/ The first thing i wondered is how games like tera and B&S get censored but scarlet blade doesn't.... o.o glad my parents aren't home today.

      B&S won't receive censorship as far as we know. Unless I missed something.

      B&S china already got censored, it was posted somewhere on dojo but can't find it. -> http://steparu.com/latest-news/1008-blade-a-soul-cn-censored I don't know about NA/EU, but I'm not gonna put my hopes up to high.

    4. Sakimitama

      Sakimitama

      NA/Eu has already stated that they will not be censoring anything. Also, in Scarlet Blade the loli class was censored. Understandable, though.

  7. The time is here for the long awaited (at least mine) dream game. *.*
  8. Congratulations on your first sig, you're on your way to become a full fledged artist. \o/ :confident: I'm not that good at Photoshop at all, and Aery basically said all you need to know. Just a few points: - Try to use some blurring and smudging to blend your render more into the background. - Perhaps it's just me, but I'm not a real fan of placing the render completely on the right/left side, but that's just me....(different style perhaps ^^) That being said....It's really well done for the first time, keep practicing. \o/
  9. OMG, absolutely stunning. :love:
  10. I don't watch/read/follow Black Rock Shooter, but the wallpapers/fan-art of this serie is the most epic thing I've ever seen. *.*

  11. Another game that will be published by NC soft, in me opinion they should just drop the game and make a movie out of it. That was funny. :D

      There are still some alive. They actually believe that it's just a start of a new era. Like the calendar just repeats itself. Not the end of days.

      They could just hang up a new calender and "extend" their lives with a few decades.

  14. OMG xD
