This game looks pretty cool. It also sounds really nice.
What? This is like the first game in months to pique my interest. Yeah, it's indie. Yeah, it's retro. But I think the aesthetic really justifies itself in this case.
I just wanted to talk about a video game...
I don't have a current gen system.How would you describe it?
seriously? when I saw the thumbnail on the catalog I thought it was a screenshot of 2.22
I like how you're calling ripoff just because EVA is the only reference that you guys get, meanwhile, tons of games did even more blatant references and no one talks about it.
that's what I get for trusting ctrl+F, I guess
although it really looks more like 01 and 02 fucked and had three babies
Why do you faggots have to keep posting pictures of her death?
vastly superior in terms of shonen-esque fanservice (until 3.33), shit in terms of actually being about something.
maybe 4.44 will redeem the series and reveal that there was an underlying logical thread running through the whole ordeal, but it seems pretty dubious, seeing as Anno's already scrapped his original concepts for 3.33 and 4.44 several times over.
oh come on, it's blatant as fuck. it's like the artist watched that scene in 2.22 and was like 'I'm going to use that exact same angle, color palette, and subject, but I should swap the face with 02's so it's at least slightly different.'
I guess it's alright if it's a deliberate homage or whatever.
but old video games don't look anything like that, in terms of aesthetics or technical specs
Post best angel.
Even thought I already did
I never got those eva shits, where they actually alive? so they weren't fucking giant robots all along? that entire show was pretty weird, but then again I was in high school and high as fuck half the time so idk what the shit was happening ever
>implying that scene isn't one of the best scenes in the whole series
Rebuild's CGI shit just doesn't compare.
The biblical shit in Evangelion is 100% bullshit and only in there because the creator thought the names and imagery were cool sounding.
In reality, they're all aliens.
Eva are basically genetically engineered to be substitutes for Adam/Lilith if I recall correctly. The mechanical parts on them are just there for armor and to subdue them into submission.
Why do people hate 3.33 so much? I thought it was pretty cool but agree it was lame that it's only purpose was to set up 4.44. Still there is so much autism over it that I dont understand
Also while we are on this, can someone explain what the fuck is going on in this scene? Specifically the bandages
>I guess it's alright if it's a deliberate homage or whatever.
>Films from Miyazaki, Gainax’s Neon Genesis Evangelion and spaghetti westerns have helped Alex define the aesthetic he’s pursuing with his game. “The core tenets are elegance, beauty and underlying it all is fun. I want to do a few things really well.”
The artstyle is different even if the inspiration is blatant, go read a definition of "color palette" too.
>>but old video games don't look anything like that, in terms of aesthetics or technical specs
Take an Atari 2600 game, program it to mimic SNES motion, shower it with the tons of industry glitter that exists today solely to make a game look better than it actually is.
>isn't one of the best scenes in the whole series
Seriosly, EoE was made at the perfect time, we had perfected Cel animation and were just about to go to really ugly computer animation for the next 8 years.
Fuck, EoE looks better then most anime today. and that whole fight scene shows that.
I don't hate it
yet. I'm still waiting on the dub
>Also while we are on this, can someone explain what the fuck is going on in this scene? Specifically the bandages
They were from the injuries she sustained in the battle with the Mass produced Evas. Why the fuck she has them after instrumentality I have no idea.
Eva has always caused people asspain. 3.0 was the craziest the series has been since EoE. For that reason alone, it was great.
I didn't mean to, anon, it was just the clearest image I had on hand to show the facial features of Unit 02.
Here, have a happy Asuka.
Because the opening 20 minutes is some of the dumbest and most contrived storytelling in the entire franchise, including fan fiction. Not to mention it's becoming painfully obvious that things are being changed for no reason other than to create new merchandise. The cherry on top was that meta "curse of eva" bullshit they used as a cheap excuse to not actually take advantage of the timeskip in meaningful ways.
>hyper light drifter turns to an eva thread every single time
>eva 1 rip off
>mfw there are actaully ppl defending this in this thread
>marketers are real
This is my attempt to curb the conversation. I just wanted to talk about video games.
>can someone explain what the fuck is going on in this scene
Shinji decides to come back and so does Asuka apparently. Strangling and "how disgusting" is their way of making up.
LCL can turn into paper and spandex
She is the combination of Misato, Rei and Asuka. Her bandages, except for the eyepatch, represents Rei when Shinji first met her. Eye color represents Misato and the rest represents Asuka
these fucking indie devs
>how can I make an oiginal game that everyone will like
>I know! RETRU LOOKING PLATFORMER
Most of the movie was just raw CGI flash and thunder with the loosest possible semblance of a plot, it also introduces a massive amount of shit with no explanation as to how we got from the end of 2.22 to here, and just expects you to accept it as it comes
Howso? People went into both movies getting something completely different from what they were led to believe. Trolling at the highest caliber. Not even Kojima could out-do the master, Anno.
That eoe fight scene has the best animated feeling of weight of anything i have ever seen in my life. The stream of good quality animation from japan, is rare and far between, everything is just shit and not very interesting at all
Aesthetic inspiration is one thing. Copying a character design, pose, angle, lighting, and camera angle goes quite a bit further than that.
>a. The range of colors used in a particular painting or by a particular artist
so yeah, it uses the same color pallette
they tend to get deleted around the 450 post mark, which is hilarious to me because it just seems so ineffectual. why delete a thread that's already played out its course?
I can't get the fucking Evangelion N64 game to run on Project 64. I think it must be an issue with the emulator though because my rig is pretty solid.
>Strangling and "how disgusting" is their way of making up.
I saw it more as Shinji trying to figure out if what he was in was "real" or not. And apparently the "How disgusting" line could be translated to a lot of things, including alluding to morning sickness.
Fuck it this is an eva girl wallpaper thread
>meanwhile, tons of games did even more blatant references and no one talks about it.
Name these games and rip-offs.
Oh that's right...you can't.
Both subvert expectations. 3.33's trailer flat-out lied to us.
And I love EoE, it's a work of fucking art, but let's not pretend like it didn't have flaws in the storytelling. Yui literally saying "d-don't worry, this ending's happy, really" wasn't exactly the most subtle way to assuage the audience.
I prefer the dub, some of the side characters are so-so but most of the main cast hits the mark. Tiffany Grant was perfect fit for Asuka, Spike Spencer does a great job at voicing Shinji, and Rei and Kaworu's VA's do a great job at making them sound almost alien like.
The reaction to 2.0 was mostly just "whoa it's not just a remake anymore oh shit I don't know how I feel about this"
With 3.0 it was more along the lines of "What the fuck is happening why are there like 50 proper nouns that people keep referring to in conversation without ever explaining what they're talking about what the fuck this reads like fanfiction"
Sub, and I say that as someone who's watched the dub more times than the sub. The dub is flawed in various ways. The voice cast isn't consistent between the TV series, director's cut, EoE, or rebuild outside Misato, Asuka, and Shjinji. And when it comes to the TV series they had a hard time knowing how to handle scenes since they didn't have the full script, they dubbed it episode by episode. The first few episodes are very rough and specific scenes an have errors in tone or translation.
It is really the most mindfucking scene out of eva
I have talked to so many people about it and no one has a good answer for the bandages
Hey OP, next time you want a HLD thread, don't start it with that fucking image. It always, always, ALWAYS turns the thread in to an NGE thread.
As much as I'd like a HLD thread, it's your own fault.
Okay can someone fucking tell me why for like 20 minutes Kaworu did nothing but think while SHinji was fighting Asuka
Like what the fuck
20 fucking minutes
>"whoa it's not just a remake anymore oh shit I don't know how I feel about this"
This right here is why 3.0 succeeds on some level. We're in uncharted territory now. Who knows what the fuck is gonna happen next.
Certainly not Anno. lel
Did the newer nge movies have it end less depressing? Not saying it should or has to, I just didn't really like the overly depressing ending is all. Which is odd cause I've felt ok with depressing endings before.
Who's the best character, and why is it Ritsuko?
The rebuilds are actually a continuation of EoE
I don't think EoE was depressing. It was a cataclysm ending in the world being finally relieved and, most imporantly, Shinji and Asuka finally overcoming their troubles.
It's bittersweet if anything. Shit went down but it's time to start anew.
That costume is ugly, nigga.
>That eoe fight scene has the best animated feeling of weight of anything i have ever seen in my life.
Jotaro vs Dio comes close for me.
I wish animation studios were more concerned with animating shit settling and moving around in reaction to movement.
It's a fuck you to fans and a "shows over" moment since it basically implies it's impossible for eva pilots to ever develop as characters. And yet they still used it as a lame crutch for their plot driven narrative.
>3.0 just came off as poorly written.
There are two things that bum me out about 3.33's writing: the fact that it seems to retcon 2.22's ending without much explanation, and the fucking info dump Fuyutuski gives us/Shinji in the middle.
Beyond that, I'm okay with 3.33's craziness. It's the ballsiest the series has been since 1997.
And why did Shinji go ahead and pull out the spears, even though his entire reason for going through with the plan was because Kaworu told him it would work out, but then when Kaworu says "Hey hold up this doesn't feel right" Shinji goes ahead anyway because "Man whatever there's 2 spears right so it's gotta be it"
What's up with the fucking size of all the Evas? It seems to change every single shot they're in together.
I'm biased, but definitely a best.
It took the ball, ran with it, and launched it into orbit.
I can't pick 3 colors because each shot only has 2 colors lol
>they will never be your friends
Why even live?
Seriously, I don't understand why she's popular
How can someone who's defining personality trait be that she has no personality seem appealing
It fits in within Eva's story, but when it kicks off an entire archtype/sterotype of characters in other mediums it's fucking weird
She committed Sudoku so asuka could pilot eva
He was fucking in pain man, he desperately wanted to save the world in order remove all the guilt he has for what he did at the end of 2.0, do you think he'd so easily give up a chance to stop the glares everyone shot him when he woke up? For someone like Shinji everyone glaring at him is enough for him to kill himself. Of course he'd ignore Kaworu, fight Asuka and take over Unit 13's controls, he needed to be validated/loved and not hated.
Didn't you listen to him as he was climbing Lilith's corpse, everyone will forgive him, I'll fix everything, Misato won't be mad at me anymore. This is Shinji we're talking about, everything he did is in according to how he'd act.
Didn't you see how fucking happy he was when he pulled them out? He was going to fix everything, no one will hate me!
Look at that fucking face
Rei's an autistic weirdo, Asuka's a bitch, Kaworu's a gay flower child and Shinji's a bitch nigga
Mari's alright if only because she doesn't have enough a personality to know whether or not she'd be a good friend
plus she'd probably fuck you if you smelled like LCL
It's just japs being beta as fuck
Hideaki Anno Warns of Trouble Ahead for Japanese Animation
>”The Japanese animation industry has hit a dead end — it will be tough to escape unless we can make animation without commercial considerations,” Anno said in explaining his support of the project. “It may even be too late.”
>The plan is to make an initial line-up of about 30 animation shorts, an average of five to six minutes in length. The shorts will be made with production support from Khara and distributed on Web and as smartphone aps with technical backing from Dwango.
>Asked about the fourth and last instalment in his new “Evangelion” series, Anno offered no new info about production. “I am definitely doing it, but I have to do this sort of thing as well. I’m thinking that I’ll return to ‘Evangelion’ after I do something different,” he said.
That scene with Kaji just casually fucking watering some melons has always baffled me.
Were the melons a metaphor for something, or was that only in the ReDeath parody?
what the fuuuuuuuuuuuuck
I never noticed
Always considered it Kaji's coping mechanism. Watering melons = fucking Misato. He even says something like that. It's his plea for normalcy, but nope, gotta deal with the end of the world instead. Kaji had a hard life. >>269671092
that too fits, especially in context of his conversation with Shinji. Basically telling him to man up and save the world.
These niggas pilot giant monsters
dumbfucks who believe that 'having issues with expressing emotion' = 'not having any emotions'
if she was a perfect robo waifu she wouldn't do shit like smack Shinji in the fucking face
Max fucking hype fo this shit, it's mechanics look amazing. This and ori and the blind forest and htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary need to get fucking release dates already.
srsly tho, Eva uses a lot of graphic matches, repetition as meaning. It's a story of repetition after all. >>269670612
He was saying something about learning from nurturing the plants
Blah blah personal development blah blah learn as you get older blah blah coming of age
Get it, because Shinji's a kid who's growing up
It was really subtle
>unless we can make animation without commercial considerations
Oh boy, is he 13?
Japanese animation is definitely fucked. All the talented artists and designers have slowly been trickling to their videogame industry.
Modern anime is literally too ugly to watch, everything is so fucked up because of lazy computer animators. And when the once legendary aesthetics are gone, what the fuck are you watching for, the plot?
Dem fucking dash mechanics man. A lot of the other shit looks really good too.
So why was Gendo such a piece of shit for no reason
IIRC in EoE he said something like he was afraid of hurting his son, and he did all of this to be reunited with Yui right
But If the Human Instrumentality Project meant everyone including him dies, then what was he planing to do, meet her for like 2 seconds before he turned into a pile of orange goo, or bring her back to life and live in a post apocalyptic world where very one else turned into orange goo
The Evas are basicly clones of Adam, strapped in armor and tech to make them controllable, but on some level they are still sentient. As seen by how they "befirend" or help their pilot in certain situations.
How Shinji's mom was able to "possess" Eva 01 is basicly chalked up to "Its aliens, I aint gotta explain shit."
>Is there even a 1.11 & 2.22 dub?
> And if it was, why would you want it?
Because they've been handled fantastically so far, aside from the 3.0 fuck up. I have no idea what caused that.
Because the voice for Asuka is perfect. Shinji's voice is also pretty good in the dub
Every human was connected to others while being jello, that is the instrumentallity.
And Yui was inside the Eva01, so he wanted so be inside it too or something like that but failed and Rei betrayed him for shinji.
Lol fuck that gay ass series. Neat mech designs but the whole series is a fucking cock tease that goes no where. They keep you teased with the promise of mech fights but every time something almost happens the mechs get their asses handed to them because the pilots are all a bunch of pussy as terribly written kids
One isn't even real, one is some bitch on her period all day and the last is THE MOST ANNOYING pussy ass unlikable awful main character I've ever seen in anything. The story is "hurr durr 3deep5me" fedoracore pandering trash. The series couldn't even be properly finished because of how poor that studio got
Gendo played a chess game using his son, friends, and co-workers as pawns. He lied and murdered on a mass scale to achieve his dream of being with muh Yui again. He didn't care about anyone but himself, thus chomp chomp.
Eva's got a fucking way with composition, staging, and lighting.
When did this happen? Is it a deleted scene?
How am I supposed to familiarize myself with an unlikable whiny little bitch. All he does is whine and cry the whole series
>whhaaa whaaa muh daddy issues
>whhaaa whaaa no one likes me despite loads of people being nice to me
>whaa whaaa I get to pilot cool giant robots woe is fucking me
>neat mech designs
there was only one in the entire series and it sucked
This is imo the best moment from the rebirth movies.
>dem character developments
That's the point, you're supposed to hate him. It's a story of a boy (and to the lesser extent other characters, particularly Asuka) overcoming his psychological trauma and stopping being a bitch.
The dub is done. Well was done. 3.33 was released in theaters in europe/merrica/and else where as well. The dvd release was delayed because of the theater release but was set to come out like last year until funimation got told to redo it. Anno has always had a tight grip on Eva's english dub's. I mean look back at how much shit he went through with the original cast for the show back in the 90's.
>muh whiny shinji
squawk some more, birdie
You should really rewatch Eva with the Director's Cut episodes if you haven't, clears things up and puts everyone's thoughts and feelings into perspective before EoE,
Seriously what you said Anon.
I can't believe the one good mech is autonomous, shown briefly and then destroyed.
Even then though Eva Mark 6 will always be my favorite.
Asuka a shit.
Misato s'where it's at.
The actual design choices and animation are fine. The presentation and setting are ok as well. It's just the story and writing and characters that kill it hard for me
Ehh, maybe but usually people who self loath or stay alone keep those feelings inside, not act like little children
What bait, would you not be hype as fuck to piolt an EVA?
Yeah and it makes for an awful lead character
Can't handle the truth?
since this is an animu thread I might as well ask here: what should I watch next?
I'm an ultra-pleb when it comes to anime, although over the course of this year I've watched NGE, Gurren Lagann, Code Gayass, Cowboy Beepboop, and Madoka. where should I go next?
I can't see how anyone would "love to hate" her. Sure, many people think she's a bitch, but that's different.
I too felt bad for her and ended up falling in love. She's not a bad person, she's just blunt (which I actually value) and traumatized.
>mfw people call the monster in the screenshot out as being a blatant clone of EVA-01
Have you ignorant shitheads never watched Nausicaa? It's probably one of the best animated movies ever made.
Way to be completely wrong about everything all the time. :^)
you've already watched all of the good anime, so you might as well go destroy another hobby and contaminate its community with your inability to do research and make basic decisions on your own
>a drunk whore who thinks that only way to comfort a boy with daddy problems and no mother is to use her body
>a drunk whore who equates being motherly with being sexual
You sure picked a winner, you did.
Anno is a fantastic cinematographer. Whether or not you enjoy the writing, this is undeniably true.
It makes me laugh when plebs say its shit when it would be fantastic even if it was just moving pictures
Fucking /a/, they can't have an Eva thread without arguing over which waifu got drained of creativity more.
I swear, they're playing fight into Anno's hands.
Man, if only the "curse of Eva" wasn't real, we'd have literal manchild shinji in a 28 year old's body. Now that's a finger pointed at his audience.
can't argue with that mah niggah.
although this guy is another favorite of mine
Blind, dumb, and a faggot. Alright nothing left to say here.
you must be new here. /v/ can discuss anything except video games
things OP image has in common with giant warrior from nausicaa
things OP image has in common with berserk 01
>visible teeth, mouth wide open
>glowing dots on chest
>looks exactly like a couple shots from 2.22
so yeah it's actually much more similar to 01, although it has the eyes from Unit 02 for some reason
Your opinion is parroted shit. 8)
what you're saying doesn't even make sense grammatically anymore
In case you don't understand what I am saying, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, was a Ghibli movie made about 10 years before Evangelion. Hideaki Anno, the director of Evangelion, was an animation director for Nausicaa and designed the God Warriors, which ended up being his basis for the designs of the Evangelion units.
Thanks anon, I just grabbed the most random one.
misato on 2.22
>DO IT SHINJI!
misato on 3.33
>WHY THE FUCK DID YOU DO IT SHINJI
>mfw the manga finally ends this year after 15 fucking years
both by the same guys who made Gurren Lagann
oh and Deadman Wonderland
mfw I watched the hentai that image is from
I know. Can you read the quote chain?
>On anything but the English language he can cal the shots on.
I was pointing out that he's the reason the dub of 3.33 isn't out yet and it's almost like someone was implying he had no control of the english dub.
And you're a braindead copycat. 8)
Shinji should have been fucking pissed considering everything that happened was a direct result of NERV and Misato guilting him and pressuring him to pilot Unit 01
And what the fuck was up with them calling Shinji BMO3 or whatever, is he clone or something, what reason would they have to think he isn't the real Shinji
3.33 was a poorly written piece of shit. All of the characters acted conpletely retarded and the climax was the fucking same thing as 2.22. Only thing it had going for it was the visuals.
So first he got worst girl's blood on his right hand in the beginning... and then he got best girl's semen on the same hand in the end. Symbolic as fuck bookends to a mind blowing series.
When you break it down, the Evas are just giant cyborgs.
Their armor is meant to restrain them, that's why it's not a good sign when they start moving without being connected to their battery cables, which usually happens when they go berserk.
Wasn't it just sitting around and bleeding while it had a soul anyway?
Also, I never understood the concept that putting Adam inside Lilith would somehow allow Gendo to seize control of instrumentality.
It seems that all that was necessary was for rei to re-unite with Lilith to start it, because I guess getting your soul removed and then placed back in works like a reset button for the things instincts.
Adam and Lilith were designed to litterally be cancer to each other, so the Adam fetus never made any sense.
As a side note, Gendo sticking his hand into that one fag with Adams soul would have caused Instrumentality too, So Gendo fucking wasted time.
>and then he got best girl's semen on the same hand in the end.
Killzone: The Anime
The game is far more clearly referencing Nausicaa, if you'd actually watched Nausicaa you'd know this.
>takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland
>god-warrior type monsters seem to be responsible for the destruction
>protagonist is on a journey across the ruins of civilization
>the creator fucking CITED NAUSICAA AS AN INFLUENCE
So why did he ripped of evangelion angels?
Now fuck off please, we are talking about evangelion.
Gendo failed his agenda. His plan wasn't to turn everyone into interconnected, sentient goop, but to use a different version of instrumentality where all humans are absorbed into an Eva, namely 01. If he had been successful he would have been able to reconnect with Yui again inside 01. At least as far as he knows.
I would have listed those elements if they looked similar to their counterparts in the op image
I dunno, I'm not seeing it
the resemblance is much stronger with 01
questions and answers received from actual people are research, that way you get a more human element in line with what you might like
Since it's so easy to dehumanize over the internet places like /a/ don't realize that anymore. I bet you're one of those fucking niggers who genuinely believe "X is shit because it's bad" without any sort of explanation or proof is an actual argument and valid opinion.
Gendo wanted to fuse lilith as Rei with Adam. She wanted Rei to initiate instrumentality and ask what Gendo wanted. The entire reason Gendo isolated Rei was so that he could force her to do his bidding.
You need to fuse Lilith (as Rei, unit 01, or otherwise) and Adam together to initiate third impact.
I don't even care that you don't care about this conversation anymore, I am just upset that people are comparing this game's monster designs to Evangelion when Evangelion's inspiration came from the same film as it
There is literally a fucking interview with the creator of the game where he cites Nausicaa as an influence, you can find it through google and it's on >polygon
I want Misato to be a human being again.
They just wanted him to defeat Zeruel and save Rei, they didn't know he was going to almost cause another impact, good thing Kaworu came in and stopped that shit at the last second.
They aren't even sure the Shinji in 3.33 is the real one.
>Also, I never understood the concept that putting Adam inside Lilith would somehow allow Gendo to seize control of instrumentality.
I always thought it was combining the two halves to make a full fledged God, which would allow for instrumentality to happen.
I was told this was a Hyper Light Drifter thread?
Hi guys how's it going? Enjoying the game?
Keep posting the same shitty damage control text as many times as you want anon, someday you will finally make it.
>You need to merge another Seed alien with your current seed alien to make that seed alien reset everything
You see that doesn't make sense, it was implied that simply re-uniting the souls with their bodies would cause the things to wake up and pull a reset switch.
The only thing that makes sense with Adam as a factor is if Adam still had "instincts to seed" while Lilith was in "objective complete" mode, and that by allowing Adam to be eaten, it's own code would trick Lilith's body into causing instrumentality.
Don't worry about it friend, Redline heals all wounds
>simply reuniting the souls with their bodies would cause the things to wake up and pull a reset switch
That was never implied?
Anno made up the lore. He decided to make it so that Adam and Rei need to fuse to initiate third impact.
Is this malaysian series of sequential drawings even good?
I watched some of the first episodes and the 1.11 movie and it seemed like sappy emotion bullshit with monsters and robot looking monsters, is that all it is?
Original inspiration, donut steel
>watch redline online around release
>get a PS3 finally in 2012
>first Bluray I buy is Redline
>take it to friends house with big flat screen living room TV
>plug in PS3 with HDMI
>pop in redline
I show the movie to everyone. It's just fun
It's easy to piece together considering they describe some of the events.
Except this part and what Mari was talking about with them.
It's so easy to see this retard has the most mediocre and normie taste on anime and how he can't come up with a single original concept for his shitty ''le retro pixel art'' game.
It's also amusing he cites a masterpiece as Nausicaa for inspiration for this turd.
3.0 was going to do the time loop plot but they had to scrap it when everyone one the internet figured it out right away. That's why Q was delayed as fuck and still felt like a rushed product.
>Clearing ripping off entire scenes and design
There are a lot of manga spin-offs about that.
There's even this show called Puchi Eva that got a game.
It's even deeper than that Anons
The uniform is still in 3.33, it's sitting on a box next to Rei's hut.
