Attack on Titan

I’ve been off the dreaded Anime dope for quite a few years now, but I recently relapsed when I saw a snippet of Attack on Titan. It’s one of the best shows that I’ve seen in recent years, and doesn’t rely on a protaganist who is a combination of deadly fighting skills, insane hunger pangs and borderline retarded IQ stats. And now, it’s getting a game.

Speaking to the Anime News Network, Attack on Titan producer George Wada confirmed that a game would be debuting within a year, for a 2014 release. And that’s about it. There’s no clue what kind of game it’ll be, or even what platform it’ll launch on.

Knowing Japan, I’m expecting the title to be a dating sim where you romance the creepy-faced giants on a tablet device. If you’ haven’t checked the show out yet, make a plan. It’s got great animation, plenty of twists and some fantastic action as humanity finds itself staring down both barrels of an extinction shotgun, thanks to a recent influx of unstoppable giants with a taste for flesh.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now.So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    Have yet to watch this. Doesn’t look like my type of anime,prefer slice of life and psychological genre.looks really cool though. Probably gonna be a MonHun game or fighting..hopefully RPGizzle…btw one does not simply stop watching anime

      indeed – anime becomes a part of you! and there’s always something awesome to watch, or re-watch, or read in manga form…

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        Truth! There is always something to suit the mood. Recently rewatched gurren laggan. But work is so stressful all i can manage now is gintama and honestly. Really relieves a lot of stress.anime becomes a daily routine

            Best thing one can ever hope for is to start the morning off with a gurren laggan reference. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM !??

            Loved that series but I am still more of a fantasy setting anime fan. Recently re watched all 6 seasons of slayers.

      It does have a ton of action in it, but the story behind it is really, really awesome. It’s freaky as f*ck and gives you a ton of “WHAAAAAAAT!!!!!?!??!!?” moments, along with impossible odds. Couldn’t recommend this more. Even the animation quality is brilliant. Watch just the first episode. The opening scene alone looks like it’s from a high production set.

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        Okay you seriously hyping me up ! Def gonna give this a go after you making me ao excited lol

    • Hammersteyn

      This one is actually terrifying to watch. You get a sense of dread and horror seeing the Titans going about their business. I recommend his highly.

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        Nice!! gonna give this one a go later today, excited to watch

        • Eric Viljoen

  • Hammersteyn

    Cant wait to wipe that stupid grin of a Titans face.

    • hayted

      Those grins are freaky! Love this show :)

  • Matthew Holliday

    Attack on Titan is definitely on Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan level.
    super impressed with both the anime and the manga.
    just annoyed that the manga is only a monthly release instead of weekly…
