    Can Video Games be Considered an Art Form? 

    Art. What the hell is it? Is it a beautifully realistic painting of nature, an emotionally captivating piece of music, or simply an expression that portrays the largest amount of ideas using the smallest amount of material? It’s already hard enough to define what art is; heck, it’s probably impossible. However, there are still many things that can widely be considered art, many things cannot, and many things that are along the fence. Here I will be balancing on that fence and diving headfirst into the long-running debate of whether or not a video game can be considered a work of art. It really is a nasty subject to dive into, with a lot of people on both sides, but I’m in the mood to write a good rant and I’m not doing anything else with my time, so lets get to it. Can a video game ever being considered a form of art, or is it nothing more than entertainment? (More …)

    Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance 

    Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance was recently released in Japan on Blu-Ray and DVD, making it available to more than just the Japanese public; I have (not) downloaded it illegally online in order to watch it early. Since I have been getting requests, and since Eva 2.0 happens to individualize itself (much unlike Eva 1.0), I have decided to risk  giving the latest addition to the New Movie Edition franchise an official Geeks With Taste review! Ah, where do I begin? (More …)

      Great review! :3 You hit all the major points and wrote this in an entertaining manner. But no thoughts on the music (including usage of Karekano)??

      And I like this blue wordpress format personally.

        The music seemed like the least of my worries, especially since Karekano was used in a similar way Komm Susser Tod was used in EoE. And if I discussed the context of Karekano, I’d have to give spoilers, which is a no-no~ For the rest of the music, I really don’t have anything special to say.

      don’t have anything special to say??? The music was wondrous!
      EVA wouldn’t convey as strong emotions as it does without Sagisu, specially 2.0.

    Rebuild of Evangelion 

    In the mid 90’s, the hit TV show Neon Genesis Evangelion took the world by surprise with its surprisingly real characters, stunning animation, and superb storytelling that has earned it a large following throughout the entire world, including this young mind. Many people have dedicated hours upon hours to just trying to figure out this show, the esteemed members of the Evageeks Forums for example, and thousands of people were able to relate to the characters and come to realizations about themselves because of it.

    Now, over ten years later, the great mind behind the original series, Hideaki Anno, is reviving the franchise with the new Rebuild of Evangelion movies, which appear to be an alternate telling of the entire series starting from episode one, and promises to give us an entirely new ending. Whether or not this is a good or bad thing, or if the new movies will live up to the original is entirely debatable, a debate that has already split the fandom in two (something that I’ve had to experience firsthand in the last few years).
