        I’m sure someone’s going to make a mod out of this video.

          Like the video, except in final fantasy 7 (the original at least) cloud wasn't sad or brooding, remember his line...

                At this point, Anthem needs more than truck nuts to save it

                    The truck nuts need to be hard plastic and shatter when hit. Also there should be no physics for them other than the shatterage.

                              Pat's whole aesthetic is never quite knowing how much he's kidding, and it's great.

                                        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.

                                                                                              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

                                                                                                I am prett annoyed that Patrick is characterizing Cloud Strife like how he is in Advent Children - because it is how a lot of people think of Cloud but isn't actually how he acts for most of FF7. His past is dark but because he doesn't remember it for most of the game he's not constantly acting distraught over it.
