00:38 - !J.O.O.E.! Lel, yeah I did. - Onimusha had some great games.
00:33 - J. N. Joe: Did you know JewTube is actually real?
00:33 - moonflash lol JewTube. You should clear that up with you semitenet provider. :P This was the game I was talking about, spiritual prequel to Onimusha. [link]
00:16 - !J.O.O.E.! Can't stream jewtube for a while =( but a I agree. Prerendered backdrops are like amazing unique artworks. I hope there's a sudden resurgence of them.
00:12 - moonflash Pre rendered backdrops are like the chocolate Doritos of modern gaming. So much untapped potential waiting to be utilized. Even shitty games become awesome because of them, like this one [link]
00:01 - !J.O.O.E.! If they ever did do a remake it should remain faithful. Updated HD backdrops, better character models, script clean up. Don't think it should be 3D-ised though.
23:52 - moonflash Blood bath reminds me of Queen of the Damned. What a fabulous film nobody cared for.
I'm no doom connoisseur, but this seems rather atypical for the genre. I only say that because I usually find most doom uneventful. Then again I don't have adequate knowledge of the genre to back that up. While calling it groovy might be pushing it, it certainly has head-bob worthy riffs and drum beats, laced with tasty melody for a cherry on top.
After two back-to-back listens, I can firmly state that this is anything unlike III. This is more doomy in its own right and has a totally different vibe to it than the last one which was very highly spacey and almost blackish. Though I hear that brilliant motif from the last record 17.50 mins into this. In the end I won't rate it as highly as the last one. But it still is one of the great doom albums of this year. And distinctively Monolithe-y in its own right. So, darn good I say.
One thing to love in this album are the amazing choruses. Reminds of that scene from the 2001: A Space Odyssey movie where the chaotic chorus starts to pick up when anything goes near that black monolith.
