Dawn of the Ronin is a very stylishly silhouetted 2D action game that places you in control of an unnamed Ronin warrior right in the heart of 16th Century Japan.
The game promises deep and flexible combat mechanics, utilising blocks, dodging, throws and swordplay, with unlockable sword stances and moves, and 2 different playable characters (male & female) with their own individual fighting style. In Dawn of the Ronin you’ll enter an ancient feudal Japan, taking part in an adventure based on fact and myth. You’ll be fighting alongside legendary samurai warriors and slicing your way through the opposition, defending Osaka and standing against the Tokugawa regime.
It’s certainly a great looking game, with it’s fast paced and brutal combat set in a wonderfully silhouetted feudal Japan where swords are sharp and limbs are there to be severed. Shadowy samurai sword-slashing sweetness.
Can we start the world cup over again and have Germany win again
Let it take you away
Oh god Naruto you know how to make me cry
My favorite Adventure Time song I think
The Master was the first motion picture in 16 years to be filmed on 65mm format using Panavision’s System 65 camera. Around 85% of the film was shot in this format, with the rest shot on 35mm. The last full-length motion picture to be shot in 65/70mm was Kenneth Branagh’s 1996 adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The decision to shoot in 65mm came from a desire to replicate the look of photos taken by vintage Pressman cameras, which use large-format 4x5-inch film. This also led to the use of the narrower 1.85:1 aspect ratio (65mm has a native aspect ratio of 2.2:1). Director Paul Thomas Anderson initially suggested shooting the film in VistaVision, and test footage was shot in that format, but the shallow-focus effect was not pronounced enough (x).
