    So Joust has a bigger cultural impact than RWBY does? Those ostriches were featured pretty prominent.

    I mean it takes place in the year 2045 it's probable that RWBY's status as a pop culture icon grew in that time.

    As one of the original Atari games, as well as being the key to the first challenge in the novel, yes.

    Yeah the more I heard about it the more it seemed like it wasn't worth watching. I've basically been going from "maybe I should watch it when it hits the cinema?" to "maybe just buy the DvD, when its hits the discount bin" to "not worth the effort".


    Like if the movie had actually been good then it might have been worth watching even if the RWBY cameo is barely present but by all accounts the movie is mediocre at best which makes the 0.05 second background cameo that doesn't even have enough color to be visible just plain not worth it.

    Do you think everyone will get upgrades in Atlas?

    How about new outfits again? I'm sorry Weiss but GREY IS NOT A GOOD COLOR ON YOU.


    Funny how the FNDM and official artwork seem to agree. They keep giving her new outfits blue hues.

    Yes I know that the game was part of the first challenge in the book, the point being that it was so incredibly obscure that people had difficulty beating it, I think Art3mis said she's tried over 20 times before Wade even found the challenge.

    I won't look to change your opinion, but it was definitely worth it for me to see. I greatly enjoyed the story, even if I did miss the Ruby cameo.

    So, it seems it's that kind of movie (some love it, some hate it). I probably will wait till it's out on HBO or some other channel. Won't be holding my breath, though.

    If they go to Atlas, it's likely they'll get upgrades. Maybe not everyone. I don't know why, but I feel Gambol Shroud might get some overhaul. And I totally agree about Weiss' color scheme. Her old dress looked way better.

    Here's hoping Ruby gets a scope that actually does stuff. So far all her fights have been at such close range that there's no point in using a scope anyway, especially when she's demonstrated the ability to fire accurately at similar distances while upside down and spinning through the air. 


    Girl has got to get herself a fancy sci-fi scope that can switch between different vision modes, like thermal, Aura detection, night vision, that kind of stuff.

    I'm thinking that Salem's gonna pull off a mind game on ruby similar to the one that Brron mad king of darkworld did to jaden yuki in season 3 of yugioh gx.

    Supreme Queen Ruby? That'd be funny to see.

    I'm a firm believer in Summer is Salem theory, or possessing her body. Of course it works along the lines of Holly's father and Moo from Monster Ranchers. But with all the other anime references of RWBY it should fit in. 


    That anime was everything I wished Pokemon had been as a kid. Dark and overlapping storyline, mature writing, and strong characterization for the monsters.

    In reply to notvai4 I was thinking more like salem puts her friend's under a spell that makes them react to the strongest emotion they keep locked up and them make them say what that emotion embodies such as irritation and anger at ruby for her actions in the past and present to try and break her spirit.

    You do realize that Pokemon is a show aimed at little kids right?

    In reply to notvai4 Funny? or Brutal? since that would be the opposite of the current ruby rose since she would be cold, cruel, ruthless, Merciless and callous.

    Yeah, but with Ruby's squeaky voice just put through a filter or something. Seems pretty funny to me, lol.

    A clarification: I understand that Cinder doesn't regard Emerald in any way as something other than a mean son to an end. I was, however, saying that Emerald, in lack of anything else, sees Cinder as the one who saved her and gave her new life, promising her she'd never go hungry again, and in that respect, that Shen regard she Cinder like a mother In reply to JacquesSchnee

    I watched these shows when I was ten years old on Fox Kids back in the day. How much “younger” are you thinking?

    Didn't Ruby use her scope to finish off the Giest? Also, didn't she use it to take some pot shots at Tyrian during his fight with Qrow?

    Yes she did. Which is my point. Because there was absolutely no need to use a scope in that situation. If anything at such a close range the scope is completely superflous, especially when we've seen that she has no problem making shots from similar distances in far more difficult circumstances and without using a scope. 


    I just want the fact that her weapon is part sniper rifle to actually matter. So either give us some crazy long distance shots or give her a high tech scope that lets her do stuff you couldn't do with other weapons, like using a thermal/aura/x-ray scope to see through walls and then snipe the people behind them by shooting through the wall.

    I spent a large amount of time improving my writing quality and have taken multiple courses to further my craft. I really enjoy RWBY, and love the show. However, there are a large amount of glaring problems that I feel need to be addressed in order to make the show as good as possible.
