Amazing. Saw them at PAX east and didn't like them. Talked about them with a friend and I think I might be in love.

I have no idea what this is about and would appreciate it if someone would reply to my previous post before going on to discuss new things?
Don't be so childishly moronic, we can go on discussing other things if we'd like. This is the Official Off-Topic Thread. Besides, your question has already been answered if you could just muster up the ability to scroll up a bit to find this:
Dodonpachi

I'm all for instant gratification but this is in(s)ane.


PROTOMEN is a Dystopian Megaman Rock Opera. It's quite impressive.

Don't call people names. You now have one strike. Three strikes and you're out. If you'd like to dispute this, please send me a PM. Keep in mind the foremost rule in Pixelation is "Don't be an ass."

If you give them enough constructive critism on their product they'll likely dissapear in shame.

meaningless to most, but meaningful to a few. Finished the first loop.
Could somone give me the meaning of this please? I am pretty sure it's some game but I don't know what one. Enlighten me!
It's DoDonPachi, or it's godforsaken hard-to-remember sequel. I don't know.
Look it up on Youtube, insane bullet hell SHUMP.

Dai Ou Jou is, for all intents and purposes, impossible. Can't say I really like the switch to inexplicable anime schoolgirl images either. :-\

: D given the climate in nerd-japan over the last 20 years I don't see how it's inexplicable, especially not seeing how CAVE seems to be a big part of the moe-fandom, but yeah, I know what you mean.

Would you guys agree that "a celebration of the imagination" is a good simple definition of art?

I don't think the term is very accurate, it might be a nicer and less "pretentious" way of putting it but I don't think the words are descriptive enough. I wouldn't use the word celebration to describe a lot of art and imagination is not a very specific word either, while most art is imaginative in its execution not all is from the imagination.

I would perhaps say something more like "an imaginative expression of intellect and emotion". In my opinion the two things which drive the majority of art are intellect and emotion, and I think expression is an important term when describing art. I don't think there is a simple definition to describe all art though, the term means different things to different people.

They are not schoolgirls but that is beside the point. And so far every Cave game has been very much possible given enough practise.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.
