          Now THIS is how you make an ARGUMENT. I was hooked, I was given context, the point was made in easily remembered bullets, and I was persuaded. Iconic

            What i expected from the Titan was a shield. A huge ass shield. Like, a shield that is basically a gigantic bunker blast-proof door with added utility like "disabling by ramming". And a giant, very unpractical weapon like a cannon. A representation of juggernaut, unstoppable but with a very clumsy nature.

            If I were to remember Anthem by any robot, it should be Titan.

                Ok ok, hear me out, I was ambivalent about this video for 8 months because I felt nothing from the title. But now the title changed and I immediately got it and this video was spectacular. Amazing A/B testing y'all. Also I totally snorted my cereal at the graceful neck

                  I was watching up until half the video when I realized he wasn't talking about Titan Fall. Now I just want to see Titan Fall mechs with truck nuts.

                                                      this video and the transformers fandom are a venn diagram that is soo close to being a circle

                                                                It would actually be really fun if every character had a different style that was a fusion of the pop culture and the historical backing most suited to each character
                                                                For the ranger im thinking thicc as fuck thighs, faulds, fluted armor of a north whote italian sillouette, full plate appearance with a giant plume, also a hip length cloak thats side slitted and thrown over the left shoulder
                                                                The mage im thinking a full trench coat of maille, woven in plates as it closes in over the abs, really more of a middle eastern design with a huge collar that easily could be used as a hood, this character will be tall and sturdily built
                                                                The rouge is obviously japanese so small segmented body armor everywhere, some more ornamental designs with knives strewn across their body and embossed pouches, a very sleek look
                                                                Finally, the collossus, truck nuts, obviously, but I want the design to have a big fur and nordoc aesthetic while looking like a stone golem, of course maille strewn over each joint like tubes

His past is dark but because he doesn't remember it for most of the game he's not constantly acting distraught over it.

                                                                                                Cloud is not sad, tortured, or anime. He's a dorky goof who is roleplaying as a sad tortured anime. Which you would know, if you actually played video games. You also showed pictures of Lloyd, Gustav, Chrono, and Dart, and none of them are any of those three things either. I am forced to conclude that this video was made by someone who has never actually played a JRPG but has heard them badly described, or perhaps watched someone play them through a keyhole as they spied on them from another room.

That's why some actors who are attractive on screen can seem weird, or even freakish, in real life. They often have big, distinguished facial features. It's why the image of Sherlock Holmes is such an iconic one. The books didn't make that look an icon, the serials did. If you're bored one afternoon, go through some movies from the first few decades of cinema (you don't have to watch them all the way through, just long enough to get a good idea of what major characters looked like), then look at a couple from every decade after that. You'll notice the both the appearance of actors and costume design get increasingly distinguished (save for a few more recent movies where it's apparently good design to put literally the same white person in the frame and call them separate characters), and character visual same-ness decrease.
