  1. This made my day omg haha

    1. Lithia

      Lithia

      Whose line, there we go. Love that show. (Think I marathonned a massive amount of that stuff about a year back or so)

      Gotta love the boat-load of outtakes too.

      - Lith. ...Line-art.

  2. I don't think this is the right place for this topic though :omg:
    1. Ghastly

      Ghastly

      lol! I don't see any game matching B&S in terms of character creation. You can really make the character you always wanted to make.

    2. Sogeking

      Sogeking

      Yes It's perfect :D

  3. I want to sleep with you. No, I don't mean have sex. I mean sleep. Together. Under the blankets. In your ed. While you're laying on my arm with my other hand on your tummy. With the window cracked, so it's chilly and we have to cuddle closer. No talking, just the muffled cries that you let slowly seep away from your blood gurgling mouth as I slit your throat and sacrifice your worthless life to the dark overlord.

  4. Shingeki no Kyojin: THE NEW OPENING WAS BADASS! XDD

  5. Hmm watched Trigun. Vash is probably the most badass characer I've known. I really have a thing for anime guys who can mix cuteness and badassness together XD

      Tashigi

      Cute+Badass... let me pull out my calculator.

      Yep, it says Luffy.

    2. Sogeking

      Sogeking

      Yes Luffy as well XD

  6. Another awesome video by Steparu!

    sigh If only BnS was released here :( But thats not happening until 2014
    1. Ghastly

      Ghastly

      B&S is as beautiful as it looks.

      I really wish it would release in the West already. The people who would play then are the same people who would play now. No amount of content will be enough for the pvp people so they shouldn't worry about them. As for pve there's a lot of it imo.

    2. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      They're probably trying to get the WOW crowd's attention. That's why they're likely aiming at more PVE content before release.

      Not very smart IMO, but judging from their actions, this seems to be their plan.

  7. Secret World went f2p? Geez another p2p going f2p...

      No, it was more than a month ago. At least 3 or so months. I can't remember the exact date.

    3. Violino

      Violino

      It was 8 months ago.

    4. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      You're right, for some reason I was thinking "Rift" :|

  8. Hey guys when will that new "wake up your soul" update come out? What is it about anyway?

  9. Recently, I started watching Gintama. The awesomeness cannot be described XD

    1. Dexia

      Dexia

      i know that feeling :P

    2. Boseiai

      Boseiai

      Every episode has a surprise.

      This is what I like about it most! I can't wait to see what new story will come next.

  10. Sorry, I feel embarassed. I totally misunderstood it :brick:
  11. I know. I just wanted to say that some people finish games quick while others take their time. The point wasn't to compare Vindictus with Blade & Soul.
  12. Not to be rude but...aren't you rushing the content a little bit too much? I remember when I started playing Vindictus it took me months to reach max level, while for others it took just a few days! Maybe It's just me and that I take my time to enjoy progressing rather that rushing to get all the best gear quick. Personally I don't just play video games for 1-2 hours but more. However I still can't progress very fast because I need my time to understand the mechanics of the game, relax and have fun with other players while going through the content. I know this reply is kinda pointless since I'm just stating my opinion without proving why BnS should get released or not. But I felt like posting it so nevermind :big_smile:
  13. Well who doesn't want more? :misdoubt:
  14. You too? I fell in love with it the moment I saw it :shakehead:
