  1. Game & Map Screenshots 8

    @JosephSeraph, I shared it on our facebook and twitter. With link back here and credit of course. Nice job.
  2. Can someone describe to me what sleep is? I think I've forgotten.

      HP and MP restored!


      But you're still hungry.

    3. Zeriab


      Yes. However, you won't be aware when it happens.

    4. Touchfuzzy


      Haha, thanks for the laughs guys. This last week has been long hours because of the Steam sale, and I'm super ready to pass out.

  3. Let's talk podcasts

    I don't normally listen to podcasts, but I do like The Dice Tower (board gaming podcast).
  4. In a Dark Place

    Maybe not everyone does, but enough people do that it is easy for people to think that "normal" people have it all together. There is no normal and almost no one has it all together.
  5. In a Dark Place

    Ok. Time to be a bit personal. Because I've been struggling a bit with things recently myself, and I think it is important for people to realize that no matter how much people seem to have it together... they probably don't. Everyone is a master of faking it. Everyone has doubts. I spent years, and years, and years, feeling like I was a tagalong in my friend group. That they weren't really my friends. That they were my wife's friends. But you know what: no one knew that. We all become very adapt at hiding our emotions. We get very adapt at making sure no one realizes we don't have it all figured out. Everyone around you is doing the same. And more and more, I realize that we need to talk about this. We need to make sure that people don't think they are alone. And more than likely, you have a few friends that think way more of you than you think. Who think you have things together, and are wondering why they can't keep themselves as together as you. You are not alone. Please keep trying. Please just keep on trying to take it a day at a time, and figure things out one step at a time. Find those people who won't judge you. Tell them how you feel. Keep them in the loop. I may seem like a really easy going well adjusted guy with lots of friends, but I have a special Facebook friends list of like 10 people, who I tell every day about what I'm struggling with. It is ok to not have it all figured out. No one else does either. And if everyone just admits it, and is honest about their feelings... we might realize that it is pretty normal.
  6. RPG Creator Released!

    Depending on how well it does, an android version is something we are considering. We can't make promises at this point, but it is definitely something we would like to do. Anyway, just a few things about the program: Yes, it isn't as powerful as MV, or really any of the PC makers. But it isn't really meant to be. This is more of a stepping stone engine. It is also good for introducing to kids, or doing some quick prototyping on the go. A serious dev will definitely want to go with a full PC version, this is aimed at a slightly different market than that. That being said, we do have some ideas about some other mobile tools that could be interesting for serious devs, but those are future plans that we are still only in the "hmm, could we?" stage of planning, so I can't say much about it.
  7. Best Mecha Anime of All Time.

    Infinite Ryvius was so unknown in the west. It is one of the best series I've ever seen, just, of all anime. It was so underhyped, that at one point the company that sold it in the US didn't even have a picture of the box set on their webstore. Brilliant brilliant series. On the Gundams: Victory was fine, X was actually a really solid series (too bad it got cut short, it was originally supposed to be a 52 ep series, and you can tell that the ending was rushed). Geass just... so much promise and I really think it didn't deliver.
  8. Anime Wanted!

    If you can find it: Infinite Ryvius. It is straight up one of the best Anime ever made. If you can't find that, or think the premise doesn't sound up your alley, then try Martian Successor Nadesico.
  9. Dragon Quest IV had a great opening chapter for people playing RPGs for the first time. But boy is it boring if you are a veteran.

      Well, you start with one character who doesn't learn spells. It is nice if you are just getting the whole concept... it is slow and boring otherwise.

    3. Darkanine


      I'll admit I got rather bored of IV myself, which is a shame because it looks like a title I would utterly adore if I could just brave the first few hours.

    4. Touchfuzzy


      It picks up in the second chapter, which admittedly is only about an hour into the game if you know the beginning (which I do DQIV is a nostalgiac favorite of mine, I've played it about once a year since the early 90s)...

      But honestly the only chapters I REALLY liked a whole lot were 3 and 5 (granted Chapter 5 is over half the game). Chapter 2 and 4 are good, but not great, Chapter 1 is boring as sin.

      Chapter 6, added in the PSX remake in Japan, which is what the DS remake is based on is interesting as well.

  10. Poll: Console Use

    I bought a 2DS because I only have one functioning eye, so the 3d part would be useless. (I play most on my PS4 though)
  11. People talk about all the oddball indie titles and how so much better, why can't AAA do oddball titles but big, look how good the indie ones are doing! I just... Look, yes, some of the oddball ideas work. And they get big. But how many just roll over and die when released? When you've invested thousands into a game, and it rolls over and dies, that sucks. When you've invested MILLIONS, that is potentially career ending. So what we get is a lot of four things: Continuations of existing IPs, reboots of existing IPs, uses of IPs outside of Video Gaming, and re-implementations/polishing up of popular mechanics. I mean, look at the biggest and the hottest new online games: League of Legends is just a re-implement of DotA/DotA2 style/mechanics. Overwatch is just a re-implement of Team Fortress 2 style/mechanics. Now, they are both good at what they do, but they aren't super original. And honestly, I think people need to stop looking at just the genres they don't like (everyone calls out Call of Duty and Madden, but you know, if you don't like the genre why do you care?)... I'm just tired of the "oh it is a sequel/reboot/reimagining it has to be bad" attitude. The big companies can still do interesting things, even within the "safe" zone of existing IPs. Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE was fantastic, despite being SMT + Fire Emblem Final Fantasy Type-0 did a lot of interesting stuff. Deus Ex: Human Revolution was amazing (especially the Director's Cut, and I'm really looking forward to playing Mankind Divided) The new XCOMs are SERIOUSLY solid games. etc. etc. etc. Do I wish there were more new AAA IPs? Yeah. But am I more hyped to hear that Nier Automata is coming? Yeah, absolutely. EDIT: And also, it isn't like we are getting NO new IPs. Horizon Zero Dawn looks fantastic...
  12. 4 Tips to Better Teaching

    Also, on the comment I made in the article about someone trying to punch above their weight: Sometimes it is OK to say "Look, this is a bit too complex for you right now. I think you need to learn more about X and Y and Z, and then come back to this."
  13. Learning Together

    You weren't far off! It was tips on teaching, discussion topic for it over here:
  14. Teaching has always been something I was interested in. So to help celebrate the Learning Together Event I felt it would be a good time to share a few tips on teaching! What are your tips? Together, let's learn together how to help others learn together!
