They were also awful and probably some of the worst because there were so many of them and had Sakura being a sex vampire.

Ehh. I've heard what RN replaces it with is really not significantly better.

It's not another Nasu written sex scene, so it's infinitely better.

Mederlock posted:

Yeah. Anything to remove the retarded sex scenes is a good move imo. The stuff they did to replace the one in the Fate route was definitely an improvement

My beef is just with replacing it in the first place. Just cut to black before clothes come off like the all-ages patch for Tsukihime does, way the gently caress less clunky than mana dragons and worm vampires and whatever the hell. It's not like people are going to have a heart attack at the suggestion that two characters boned at one point.

Not disagreeing, mind, I just don't think the weird roundabout way they handle it is very good compared to the extremely obvious and presumably much easier alternative.

It seems like you could just append "and don't do any horrible hosed up poo poo in the process" to your wish and sidestep the Grail's jackassery pretty easily.

AlternateNu posted:

It is the classic Monkey's Paw/Djinn wish connundrum. "Don't do horrible poo poo" is subjective, and it can be very easy to justify hosed up poo poo.

Or alternately just sit there for an hour plus and outline all the atrocities the Grail is not allowed to commit in the process of granting your wish, D&D minmaxer style. :v:

Would Hollow Ataraxia be grandfathered in on the LP subforum since F/sn got a LP? I know there's a no-porn-game rule but Type Moon stuff seems to have never been an issue for that.

Honestly I can't see any reason for them to go with the True Ending over the Good Ending. Literally the only difference is that in the True Ending, Rin doesn't keep Saber around.

Especially since they kinda have to go with the good ending for HF and not the normal ending, because the latter skips one of the best fights.

I really wish UFO would animate that fight as a "Bad End" for the BD; if there was ever a justified reason for gouging people it'd be alternate endings like that, plus Mind of Steel.

I was talking about Shirou and Kotomine beating the hell out of each other, which you see with the Normal ending if you do it after the Good ending, but not if you go for Normal first iirc. (HF Normal also sucks rear end and I strongly prefer HF Good, though, plus I haven't played F/sn in ages, so I dunno.)

Sparks Liner High kicks rear end though.

e: also UBW True kind of requires Rin to forget that she has retardedly huge amounts of mana, whereas UBW Good does not partly hinge on a character forgetting the main magic thing they do.

When I first played Tsukihime, my friend who told me about it suggested I swap the ending music with A Warm Place by NIN.

It worked really well, actually.

Also I wouldn't be surprised if people mainly think T-M is unpopular because there's only very recently been any English-language buzz for the stuff other than word of mouth. It's kind of a similar situation to JoJo, really.

They had Crispin Freeman as Zero Kotomine because Jamieson Price was already playing Rider, which was a really loving good call. I think they're just keeping him to maintain continuity- I don't think anyone got recast between the Zero dub and this.

I haven't heard the guy they have as Archer in anything, but he better be good if he's gonna replace Liam O'Brien. O'Brien's delivery of the UBW chant in the 2006 anime was loving awesome.

WeedlordGoku69

by Cyrano4747


Yeah, don't get me wrong, I'd prefer Price in this, I'm just not really surprised they kept Freeman is all. They already recast everybody who shows up in both for Zero, and while a different VA for young Kirei vs. old Kirei makes sense, Zero Saber and F/SN Saber having a different voice would be a little odd.

Honestly, Papenbrook and Cristina Vee are the ones I'm most worried about, and more for HF when it comes out than UBW. I haven't watched the vast majority of the stuff Papenbrook's been in (and I haven't seen AoT dubbed) so I don't know how well he's gonna pull off that much screaming, and I especially don't know if he's going to sound badass or just dumb in a ham-off with Freeman. I haven't seen a single thing off the top of my head with the latter in a major role.

e: you know, if they just speed through everything up to Shirou losing his arm, they can totally fit it into one movie, especially if it's fuckoff long Disappearance of Haruhi-style.

You know, I'd be entirely okay with them just starting the HF movie with a montage of everything up to Shirou getting Archer's arm, and then starting properly from there. That's basically the "poo poo gets real" point of the route, and I'm not sure if anyone's exactly dying to see anything from before that animated other than mapo tofu.

i agree, the route about sakura would be great if we removed sakura from the route completely

...well THAT's how she ended up at ANN. Always thought it was a little weird how she suddenly vanished from the Nostalgia Critic crew and went there, but if she's marrying the head of editorial, he probably hooked her up with a job and she reasonably went "gently caress these crazy people."

Freak Futanari posted:

Shiki could kill a Servant so hard that they'd get wiped from the Throne of Heroes entirely.

Isn't this pretty much the official answer? Shiki would have a hell of a time trying to get a hit in, but he'd just need one to basically obliterate the Servant from existence, basically.

e: also HF being a three-hour movie kinda eases my worries, they can easily fit in everything after poo poo goes down in 3 hours
