I’m a huge sailor moon fan and very excited about the new anime. However I felt a little sad that the new production feels and looks like low budget. The 90s version wasn’t very close to Takeuchis style. So this time they wanted get closer in sailor moon crystal to the original manga style.
I still like the idea. But I hadn’t felt very comfortable because the new anime is having some small issues. Its not a problem with the new style.. the problem lies in the face and the proportions.
Nevertheless I’m going to enjoy sailor moon crystal anyway. I’m still very happy about the new production from toei animation. I just wanted to share my thoughts. Here I tried to modify the sailor moon crystal screenshot and tried to honor Naoko Takeuchis wonderful style.
Take care and tell me what you think.

Every time I look at other artist’s take on this new Sailor Moon style, the more it reminds me of the character creator screens from BioWare games. You create the look of the character, see him/her from all different angles, and when you start the game, you find something that just doesn’t look right. I’ve recently restarted Dragon Age II three times at different areas simply because my character just didn’t turn out right. That’s what I see in Sailor Moon Crystal. I know what they’re going for, but it just feels wrong. A slight adjustment would make all the difference.
[x] Gates McFadden on the role of women in Star Trek (1993)
Incase you were wondering which episode fits her description, it’s the Season Four episode “Qpid”, the one where Q sends the entire senior staff of the Enterprise into a fantasy recreation of Robin Hood. Not only are her remarks dead on in how Beverly (Gates’ character) and Troi are handled in the episode, it depicts them to be borderline incompetent. When Troi uses a bow and arrow to hit a target in front of her, she accidentally hits Data who was just standing far out to the side.
What surprises me about this interview is that Gates is really sugar coating it. if you think this was the worst of it, here are things that Star Trek: The Next Generation did to it’s female characters BEFORE “Qpid”. The original chief of security, Tasha Yar, was bashed with the Idiot Ball so much that Denise Crosby literally left the show before it even finished it’s first season. And how did they handle her departure? By having the monster of the week kill her off just like she was a random redshirt.
To top it off, after Season One ended, Maurice Hurley convinced Gene Roddenberry to FIRE Gates McFadden from the show. It wasn’t until Maurice Hurley left the show that Gates came back. As this interview shows, things didn’t really get much better.

The one and only good thing about Mass Effect 3 gets to be the main spotlight in the next Dragon Age Game.
N64 Magazine #36, Christmas 1999 - Review of Resident Evil 2!
Follow oldgamemags on Tumblr for more awesome scans from yesteryear!
My first experience with Resident Evil came from watching a commercial where one of the characters almost gets eaten up by a sewer alligator. At the time, the effect looked spectacular. It wasn’t until years later when my BFF came over to my home to spend the night and he brought a couple of rental N64 games. The one game he rented was Resident Evil 2.
I didn’t know much about the franchise, but the moment one of the characters stepped into the poise station, I WAS HOOKED! When we managed to beat an entire play through, I was caught the Alligator! Soon afterwards I purchased a copy for myself and, thanks to the Game Cube era, continue to buy more of the titles.
Whenever I get asked a question about which Resident Evil game is the best, I have two answers. Resident Evil 4 is by and large one of the best games ever created. It’s got so much variety, a wonderful pace, genuinely creepy moments, a great combat system and a pretty decent story. But if you want a game that captures the heart and spirit of what I believe Resident Evil should be all about, Resident Evil 2 is it. The mystery surrounding Raccoon City’s outbreak, the connection between the city and the mansion, Ada Wong, Sherry’s plight, and the newly introduced G-Virus. It also contains my absolute favorite monster in the entire franchise. Mr. X. He’s huge, expressionless, and you don’t know where he’ll pop up. To make matters worse, he won’t stay dead. Every time you think you got him, he’ll get back up and disappear from the room next time you visit it, leaving you to wonder when he’ll show up next. And he will. Many, many times.
This is simultaneously cool-looking and absolutely terrifying.
oh this is cute, it’s like something out of gunnerkrigg court or bracklewoo-OHHH SHIT
