It's like they saw what people were doing on Fanfiction.net or Archive of our Own and said "People REALLY like our characters", and just decided to do "official" fanfiction. Like, the series where Shinji is a detective?the other thing the eva rewatch has triggered off is a fierce desire to revisit all the other eva spinoffs and works that were tacked on to the side of eva, like the Shinji Ikari Raising Project (the main one I'm thinking of) or the one where they're all magical girls instead or some shit. Eva spinoffs are so off-continuity it's impressive.
/edit oh man i totally forgot about Angelic Days. I don't even remember the difference between this and the Raising Project
Yeah, for the full fat experience they should really leave, oh, a year between 25/26 and EoE.One thing I'm not completely sold on is the idea of them watching Episodes 25 & 26 and EoE together for the same podcast. I would really love to hear their thoughts on the show's ending devoid of the context of seeing EoE, but I get why they are doing it that way. If they did episodes 20-26 in one go the podcast would probably be even longer than this one. My suggestion would be that they should watch episodes 25 & 26, stop and record the first half of the podcast, then go and watch EoE, and record the second half. I understand why this probably wouldn't happen as it would probably be a nightmare to schedule.
I think you missed the “so” in my sentence you quoted. And, well, the rest of the post too.They’re curtailing users’ freedom, and subverting the rights of developers and publishers to maintain a direct relationship with their customers.The specific problem here is that it's locked down, it’s impossible to download apps from the websites of publishers and developers, to install them, update them, and conduct commerce in them outside of the store.In my view, the store, should, must and will, die as a result of industry backlash. Gamers simply cannot trust the platform so long as they give evasive, ambiguous and sneaky answers to questions about the future, as if it’s a PR issue. This isn’t a PR issue, it’s an existential issue.Their intentions must be judged by their actions, not their words. Their actions speak plainly enough: they are working to turn today’s open PC ecosystem into a closed, controlled distribution and commerce monopoly, over time, in a series of steps of which we’re seeing the very first.
Oh, sorry, that was Epic's Tim Sweeny talking about UWP and the Windows 10 store. Huh. Weird.
He is of course right. The history of the PC is open-ness. It is, at it's core, an open platform.
It's why you can run any of 17 versions of Windows or 372 flavours of Linux.
It's what allows the PC to support a million different places to buy and download games. Any developer can run their own website, their own store. There are no barriers.
It is a fundamentally different ecosystem to the various console closed-gardens.
The Epic Games Store's approach, of buying up 3rd party exclusives, is totally antithetical to the entire history of PC gaming.
Sorry, I was specifically trying to address that point, but I'll be more succinct:I think you missed the “so” in my sentence you quoted. And, well, the rest of the post too.
To be clear, I understand why people are frustrated in general so what you said here doesn’t really explain anything to me. I don’t disagree that it’s bad? I just don’t understand the degree to which some people are actively riled up about it.
it's something an at field can do, that angel just put points into being able to do itThe Dirac Sea stuff confused me when I originally watched it and listening to them go over it I realized I still don't understand what's going on. I always assumed it was an ability unique to that angel, but the American base "vanishes" later and it's assumed that it's also as a result of a dirac sea, right? So is that just a thing any angel can do?
yes! Please make this a thing.
