    The Gaming News Thread (for news that doesn't need a thread)

    I would also think that's an appealing reason for a developer (or realistically, a publisher) to choose for the Epic store. But for whatever reason that doesn't seem to be the main drive behind most Epic store exclusives. Just as in the book publishing example, there's a lot more to consider...

    The Gaming News Thread (for news that doesn't need a thread)

    Personally I think having to create an account and installing a launcher/client is a quite a big deal. Steam is no exception to that. In an ideal world, one would be able to simply buy games, and any launcher/client would only serve as an optional convenience. Letting people choose which one...

    What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

    Made in Abyss and Princess Principal from the MVM easter sale. Also two movies from Amazon.co.jp, KanColle the movie and Mary and the Witch's Flower UHD. Apart from Princess Principal, all stuff I haven't seen yet, so looking forward to watching them :)

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    Yeah, it does indeed look as if grain has been added afterwards, meaning it was degrained in the process. Artifacts are also visible near the edges. All in all, doesn't really look like an improvement, which is a pity.

    Wait... are you guys telling me I've been setting my TV and AVR volume wrong all this time? o_O For me it has to be a multiple of five. So no 44 or 46, but a nice 45.

    The Q & A Thread (for questions that do not need a thread)

    As IncendiaryLemon says, it isn't needed in order to understand the film and I think it holds up pretty good on its own. That being said, if you pay close attention you can deduce certain things regarding the events in the two seasons of Sound! Euphonium (so in that sense it "spoils" certain...

    The Q & A Thread (for questions that do not need a thread)

    While I don't use the PS4 app, the Prime Video app on my LG tv also shows a panel ("play next episode") at the start of the credits. Likewise it won't display any subtitles when that panel is visible, making any post credit scene (or next times/previews for that matter) quite hard to follow...

    Amazon's Import Fees Deposit

    It only happened to me once that they refunded the full deposit. The email was just like the standard refund you generally get when they refund you a couple of cents due to exchange rate fluctuations. Interestingly enough it took way longer than usual (>2 months). So while there's no way of...

    Mob Psycho 100 II - Episode 8

    I feel the exact same by the second season. So far it has really been nothing short of brilliant. The first few episodes I had my doubts, as it seemed to fail to capture the same feel season one had, but in the end, the slightly more grounded tone let to the magnificently handled episodes...

    Black Clover - Ep 72 Price of Smiles - Ep 9 Kaguya-sama - Ep 8 Mob Psycho 100 II - Ep 8 Again a really nice episode; definetly anime of the season for me Sword Art Online: Alicization - Ep 20 Pacing seems to remain a bit on the slow side, but otherwise an enjoyable episode. Though, I found it...

    It's kind of ridiculously how big TVs are getting if you ask me. It seems they are positioning 43" as average (although it already seems to shift to 55"). While I'm all for big TVs being an option, it's not as if the rooms that will house them have grown over time :-P Good luck! Living close to...

    Me neither, though I really enjoyed Fate/Zero. The others that I watched just felt lackluster compared.

    Popular US voice actor(s) are accused of showering underaged fans with unwanted affection

    Totally agree with what you wrote. I generally think that when people ask for evidence it's not so much denying (nor actually wanting evidence), but more questioning why one should assume the accusations to be true. That being said, the way you phrased the above doesn't quite sit right with me...

    Popular US voice actor(s) are accused of showering underaged fans with unwanted affection

    That does make it somewhat unlikely that they wanted to get rid of him before this whole ordeal. But still, it could very well be that the reason they wanted to cut ties with him is due to the accusations, but the actual reason they "found" after "investigation" could very well just be some...

    Popular US voice actor(s) are accused of showering underaged fans with unwanted affection

    It surprises me to see that people take the fact that companies cut ties with him as some form of evidence that the accusations are true and/or more is going on. Generally if an employer wants to get rid of you, they will find a way to do so. There's always a reason why they want to let you go...

    Totally agree that you don't want any artificial sharpening, just wanted to add that on some TVs a sharpness of 0 isn't actually OFF, but softens the images. So it's best to just look up the value for your TV that leaves the image "untouched" in terms of sharpness.

    Winter Streaming Preview 2019

    Shows about a love triangle with family might be rare, but shows featuring it are a bit more common. I also doubt it's fully up to culture, but more a simple result of making a show with forbidden love + extra drama. Doesn't make it any good, though, and I'm pretty sure it isn't a show for me...

    Why The Rising of the Shield Hero's Anime Is Better Than the Original Light Novel

    I'm half-way through volume 4 and thus far the writing didn't really improve IMHO. The first person writing is annoying, but you get used to it. The biggest problem is that there's a lot of plot convenience, which the anime adaptation can't possibly avoid (without big changes to the story)...

    Preview of Rising of the Shield Hero. Having also read a few of the LNs I can say they managed to adapt the material quite well thus far. Biggest problem is also that they managed to adapt the material quite well :p. It wouldn't have hurt if they took a bit more creative liberties to improve on...
