@takashichea: Well, even if you did mess up the age range, it doesn't appear to have affected the data too greatly.
Another purpose of this poll was to see if Anime Vice's community was aging or not. I had this weird theory that after the sale out, we lost a lot of young folks. I felt Tom Pinchuk and Sam Weller's best audience were older folks.
I don't think we can prove anything unless we get data of the demographics before the buy out.
Brent Hodge’s documentary A Brony Tale, which premieres April 26 at the Tribeca Film Festival, delves into the world of “Bronies.” As we well know by now, bronies are the older, male fans of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, a show about a Hasbro toy aimed at young girls. The documentary revolves around BronyCon in New York, which is attended by Ashleigh Ball, the voice actor that plays both Rainbow Dash and Applejack. The trailer also offers one-on-one interviews with bronies from various walks of life, including one who’s serving in the military and one who confidently tells the camera, “You ain’t a man unless you watching My Little Pony, son.” A Brony Tale follows in the footsteps of 2013’s Kickstarted film Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans Of My Little Pony, which featured the show’s creator, Lauren Faust, as well as voice actor Tara Strong.

I'm going to have to agree with Dream on this one. Perhaps we can just ban battles with more than one battle in it? It looks like this type of thread is just being used so that people can do non-anime battles without the thread getting locked. Plus the battles like the ones above usually don't have deep debates like the regular battle threads since everyone is scrambling just to pick a winner for every fight. So, there's my two cents.
Bethesda (the makers of the Elder Scrolls V) and Shinji Mikami (the brain behind the Resident Evil franchise) have teamed up to create all new horror game. Today, Bethesda just released a new trailer for the game.
EA games have just a couple days ago that they are giving out a digital copy of the original Dead Space on Origin for free until early. If you guys haven't heard about Dead Space, it's basically Alien (the movie we watched in the chat) with a bit of Resident Evil. Now you might be thinking: "What's the catch? Those jerks at EA never give anything out for free without a couple strings attached." And you would be exactly right thinking that way. Coincidentally, within the same week, EA is reformatting Origin so that the client only sells digital games. So, the catch is that they want you to have Origin so you can buy their other games.
If you think about it, J.J. Abram's ultra secrecy is the best way to handle the casting of the new Star wars movies. If the internet got their hands on the list of new actors joining the the franchise, they will be scrutinized to bits.
