Evangelion 2.22: You Can[not] Advance w/Introduction by Mike McFarland (TV-14-LV)

(TV-14-LV)

Brutal mechanized action explodes on a grand scale as towering cyborg gladiators – the Eva Units – fight for the fate of the world in the new feature film, Evangelion: 2.22.

In the earliest battles against the monstrous Angels, young Eva pilots Shinji and Rei were forced to carry humanity’s hopes on their shoulders. Now, with the deadly onslaught of the Angels escalating and the apocalyptic Third Impact looming, Shinji and Rei find their burden shared by two new Eva pilots, the fiery Asuka and the mysterious Mari. Maneuvering their enormous Eva machines into combat, the four young souls fight desperately to save mankind from the heavens – but will they be able to save themselves?

OMG!... WTF Did I Just Watch? (18+)

Spend an hour watching examples of why Japanese TV is so much better (or perhaps worse) than ours.  There are music videos, comedy, game shows, weird commercials, pro-wrestling highlights, and whatever else we could find.  This has nothing to do with anime so leave the kids at the door.

7 Sega Saturn Games You Should've Played

Hey kids! Remember the Sony Playstation and the Nintendo 64? Of course you do. But did you know there was a third system in the mid/late-90s console wars? It was called the Sega Saturn, and while it wasn't able to receive as much acclaim as the other two systems, it still was able to churn out a number of top-notch games, many of which flew underneath the radar. This panel will cover seven lesser-known titles, ranging from the somewhat-familiar to the outright-obscure. So, whether you've never seen a Sega system (aside from the Genesis and/or Dreamcast) or know who Segata Sanshiro is, drop on in for sixty minutes of late 90s goodness!
