  1. Django Unchained

    Who the hell watches a Tarantino movie for historical accuracy? Exactly my point. That's why I think it's crap that Spike Lee is pissed off.
  2. Django Unchained

    I haven't seen it yet. But I don't think any historical film by Tarantino is to be taken serious. Remember the death of hitler in Inglorious basterds?
  3. Spriting and Concepts

    That's some pretty good spriting as it looks to me. I'd try to get that collar a bit thicker and try to look at the dq iv hero to get the hair and headband a little better. The hair doesn't really fall like it does in the artwork.
  4. Holy $#!&, youtube totally sucks now

    I miss the trending and music sections! I don't even know how to get all the latest popular videos anymore. This new "popular" section has videos from up to 5 years ago. It's all over the place. I hate it. All I have left is subscriptions.
  5. Wii U trailer

    Came out today. Randomly came across it. Looks pretty sweet. http://gematsu.com/2012/12/dragon-quest-x-wii-u-trailer
  6. Dragon Quest VII

    That had to be pretty hard the perspective on that desk and mirror. I see the plush there. Nice touch.
  7. Lots of sceenshots!

    Seems like a different experience now. Kinda feels like a monster game.
  8. On DA it's also about being seen enough. Commenting and faving on other people's work to get seen. Also posting a constant stream of content helps. You really have to get involved. I noticed in my work that the real popular topics like ssj's from dbz do much better than the more creative work too. You basically have to build up a fanbase doing fanart before you can hope to get some responses on original work. Or you just have to be really really good.
  9. Election 2012

    I think it would be great if everyone got out there and voted 3rd party for one election, just to shake up the D and R. Show 'em we don't need 'em. Maybe they'll get back to some semblance of normal people after that. Yeah exactly. If you think about it that way, any vote counts. Because they always look at the numbers. And if they see they're losing votes to a third party, they'll definitely try to change up some policies to cater to those voters to try to win them back. There may never come a third party, but those votes do influence the 2 others.
  10. Election 2012

    I don't think so. If you're not voting, you're not doing anything at all to change things. Voting is the bare minimum. I do love how the audience applauded him saying the public is stupid. Does that magically exclude them?
  11. Election 2012

    Hitler and Stalin were dictators, that wasn't democracy anymore. I see freedom as the ability to do whatever I want (which I can). Regulations have to be there to prevent chaos. Yes dictators can create genocide, but well so can civil war where you're just doing it to eachother. I do believe the united states have had something like that. And there lies the danger of politically divided countries. If murder rates are so low in your region, why do you carry guns? In any case murder and crime rates are higher in general in the US than in most of European countries. Our human poverty indexes are generally lower because of social security and health care systems. Also education is funded. Diminishing poverty and increasing education levels will surely lower crime, I don't see how just "freedom" does the same. As it stands scandinavia has model societies for the world. They are among the richest in the world and also happen to be the most progressive, social and ecological in the world. Even we in western Europe could learn from them. So you see it isn't all that black and white. You don't have to be capitalist to be a wealthy country. But I know it's a deep rooted belief of the states, which is passed on from generation to generation. So yeah it's hard to change that. And yes in small communities like yours, government isn't able to affect your lives significantly anyway. It may work for you, but not necessarily for the rest of your country.
  12. Election 2012

    Well I don't think you can blame a global economic crisis on one man. It mainly was wall street's doing anyway not even Bush's fault. Also there had to be government spending (which increased the deficit) for instance to save the auto industry you're in. Jobs have been growing steadily under Obama. That being said, I'm european, so I will never understand why a lot of americans are so against government. A land where it's every man for itself can't be pleasant to live. It brings chances of survival back to the primitive darwinian ones. Only the strong survive. Which might be the reason your nation is also so bend on gun owning. I for one think humanity is bigger than that. Bigger than animalistic urges for survival. Compassion, tolerance and collaboration are words I'd gladly repeat from Obama's speech. Also some republicans preaching to make abortion illegal claiming it's murder while they gladly see a poor man die because he can't afford health care is peculiar to me.
  13. Election 2012

    Yeah Romney was pretty awful. Flip flopping all over the place. Spreading lies in Ohio about the car industry even after they were rebuttaled by the actual companies. Then there's the mockery he made of himself in England I think it was, almost creating a political incident.
  14. Election 2012

    If the republicans don't want to lose Congress in 2014 they'll have to consider going for more centered policies. Also Obama doesn't have to worry about being reelected again. So I think you can be hopeful more things will happen, good or bad.
  15. I really couldn't decide between the two mexican ones so I voted for neither to be neutral, but does leave me with only 2 casted votes.
