u need to know something... south park, futurama, and king of the hill beats the hell outta anime

evrfighter2621d ago

not seeing the Kevin butler similarity. Closest I could see was troy mclure and even that's a stretch.

" u need to know something... south park, futurama, and king of the hill beats the hell outta anime"

those are some of my favorite shows infact but they don't beat a good anime i suggest you check out "Cowboy bebop" or some anime movies like "Ninja scroll" or "Princess Mononoke" don't be fooled by it's name its a awesome movie, there available in english as well,check them out for starters tho im not sure what you're into you should give it a chance man,some people hate anime with out having a real reason too but man anime is great

thedisagreefairy2621d ago

i hate the dialogue for most of them. its just so corny to listen to most of the time. ironically i love the metal gear solid series though

shadow27972621d ago

Slightly off topic, but does this mean there's no longer fall damage?

Actually, was there fall damage in Portal 1? I can't remember anymore.

ChrisGTR12621d ago

KB is really just a ripoff of steven colbert anyways

peowpeow2621d ago

No there was no fall damage. Remember missing the portal as you jump down during the momentum puzzles :P

Shuklar2620d ago

King of the Hill is good programming? LMAO!!! Freaking hillbillies...

pixelsword2620d ago (Edited 2620d ago )

At any rate, given the candor and comedy style of Cave, I can kinda see the connection... kinda; but if he's the voice you'll hear throughout the game, it may become old fast.

thedisagreefairy2620d ago

king of the hill is a satire over "rednecks"

If anime had a sustaining framerate of more than what feels like an average 5 fps, we wouldn't be having this discussion. Too many stand still moments, without action--just boring. Dialogue isn't there, ever, and you'd have to be pretty anti-social to be able to enjoy it. If they did get as much frames as Family Guy, people, I guarantee you, we would watch them. But most don't have the patience for paint dripping down walls, nor do they have the patience to wait for several painted action sequences with weird sound effects.
IMHO, Americans do anime better. Teen Titans, was the best when I was a kid. And everyone can hate me for this one, Avatar was just a bundle of fun. Naruto is shit.

Firstly i disagree i have no clue what anime show you where watching but yeah i don't find these problems you like do and secondly i agree with you on how " Naruto is shit" i hate that amine with passion it is probably the most stupid and worst amine i have ever seen i couldn't stand watching 5 mins of it and if you are going to judge amine based on naruto i can see why you feel the way you do about anime but there are a lot of different types of anime so much I'm sure even some one who hates it could find one they liked,there's more to anime then just pokemon,naruto ect a lot more and a lot better.

"i hate the dialogue for most of them. its just so corny to listen to most of the time. ironically i love the metal gear solid series though"

i don't think its all that bad really but it depends on what you are watching you got to remember some of these shows are old,go watch a episode of the old original transformers and that will be even cheesier,hell some times our video games have bad dialogue and we still play it,besides some times the dialogue is funny lmao

I know I have a Naruto avatar, there are some things I like about it(mainly...powers, chakra system etc, Sasuke story before he targeted the wrong people and sided with the one who should be his biggest enemy, character design) but even I know you should not base the quality of Anime on Naruto, it sucks compared to alot of others(and I currently think the plot has gone to shit and is nonredeemable , worst 'war' ever). Really, anime is like watching movies, they vary so much.

You can get good ones and crap mainstream ones that are watchable and addicting(only wanting to know what happens, which is the only reason I watch Naruto now, I want to see the end) but fall short of anything I would consider great. Like Cowboy Bebop, the first 26 episodes of Death note(I don't like the rest, I feel it should have ended there and then with a certain death) Ilike Code Geass, mainly because the ending has to be the best i've ever seen in maybe...anything. I also like Monster. Thriller, detective story, Human experiment story, good but drags on at some points...I am forgetting some right now.

Basically though Naruto is like Cod. Sticking to basic crap, it's alright but not something you should compare to Avatar(because it is a higher level of quality) and good versus evil(I thought this was changing but it's gone back to straight forward GvE) and if you think it's shit I can see why. Also i watch subbed anime, I can't stand english dialogue in alot of them, especially Naruto, which takes out cursing, and just has annoying voices in general..also 'BELIEVE IT!' whoever decided to translate "dattebayo" to "believe it" should be hanged, drawn and quartered.

This is well off topic though right haha

How the heck was that like Kevin Butler?

Sony3602621d ago

I know. It was actually funny.

sobekflakmonkey2621d ago

I know....that was just so pointless...STUPID ARTICLE.

Christopher2621d ago

Yeah, don't get the KB reference at all.

Lawliet2621d ago

Exactly my thought... Kevin Butler doesn't hide behind the scene!

Eamon2620d ago

Completely agree with HolyOrangeCows

This article is meaningless. There is hardly any similarity and the biggest difference is that KB is acting while Cave Johnson is voicing.

Either the author is a bit dumb or he created it with the purpose of flaimbait to gain a billion hits.

lalalala2621d ago

i hope portal 2 is a decent length, at least 6-8 hours would be worth it imo.

fluffydelusions2621d ago

Each campaign is supposed to be that length afaik. BTW anyone know when the reviews will start coming in?

Tdmd2621d ago

8 hours or above that. Less then this is not worth a buy imo.

sobekflakmonkey2621d ago

really? you must not have too many fps games then...cause pretty much every fps that has come out can be beaten in like 4-6 hours. thats all the recent CoD's, the new Medal of Honor, Killzone 2/3, they iz short in general, but that doesnt mean the experience is bad.

Tdmd2621d ago

@sobekflakmonkey

You're right. In fact, I have none.

Eamon2620d ago

Portal isn't a first person shooter.

It's a first person puzzle game.

GodofwarGoty2621d ago

i find it funny how it is the same as Kevin Bulter Commericial

mehhh Segata Sanshiro is the man!!!!!!!
