    ...i don't know how to deal with this - wether i should be excited, worried or dissapointed. To be honest i'd never considered the possibility of a mixing between Halo

    ..and anime...

    what do you think?

    Mixing Halo and anime is like making a Full Metal Panic live-action movie with no mecha and with Sagara Sousuke as a basketball player in high school.

    To me, it's just Microsoft's way to grab money and more money. They have Red vs Blue and that's quite good enough.. Wouldn't you think??

    Halo Movie.... like many things... ill reserve judgment until I've seen it. They are also making a movie of WoW.

    GunXsword: Its opening theme is my mobile phone ringtone... though I cut out the first 5 seconds of it cause my phone cant do drumbeats very well.

    Technoman was awesome. I used to watch it when I was very young...
    Currently ive been getting right into One Piece. Its a quirky and unique anime but the best thing about it is that there is no filler in 400+ eps (excluding some stupid special's they released and slotted in at 2 random spots). I actually find myself laughing quite a bit when watching this....

    Well, they didn't have a direct relation to the RvB production. Just happened to make the video game the guys used to do it, then went ahead and let them have the rights to do it.

    It did have an impact on some at the MS dev companies tho. Just look at soime of the achievements in GoW. For example, the achievement for sticking 100 grenades on heads in multiplayer is called "Is it a spider?" :roll:

    That is true. I forgot it was an Indy thing... There really not a lot of times where you can say that you just developed something, spoof to say, and the bigger company took it in... ONly because a lot of times, they take the spoof as being a low blow to them..

    Yeah, RvB really did do somethings to people. Which is a good thing. Don't get me wrong about that.

    By collection, do you mean the stuff we own on actual retail DVD's, or all anime in our possession? lol

    And yeah Mark, that is one of my all time favorite animes. Uta was amazing. They have it out on BluRay in Japan, I'm waiting for the BluRays to hit over here to grab it.

    Well, the Halo anime has potential, but I wonder about the execution.

    BTW, how much is a BR burner in the USA (And how much are BR-W discs, and how much is anime/other movies/series on BR over there) ? I'm flying over to the states in a month, and I'm going on a shopping spree for comp parts and high-def entertainment, and I wanna know how much it will set me back by.

    Stuff you own in Dvd's, VHS, Blu, Figures, and so forth. Man, Blu-ray is sweet!!!


    I got my Blu-ray burner for about $150.. It's between that and $200 bucks. Mine does both blu-ray burns and reads hd dvd.. So, I'm quite happy with what I have.
