      So why is every game set in a high school set in Japan? Why none in the US? Or Egypt? Or Russia? Or just anywhere else?

        @mathmaster74 : I understand that. If I based a game on my HS it would involve my HS crush transferring to another school, then once I moved on and found someone else she disappeared without a trace.

        Would make for a depressing game I know.

        You know what, if I ever make a school setting, it's probably similar to Japan as we adopted the same/similar system, except maybe the school building structure (tall building for classes, a large schoolyard right in front of the entrance, etc)

        Maybe the art is all anime so they set it in japan.

      The hardest part about editing a trailer: Finding scenes that work in the little snippet of time they show in the trailer.

        Oh, yes, as you need to find scenes that also work out of context as you don't have the time to establish the context anymore.

        Yup. With gameplay-oriented games, the trailer that has the gameplay parts more or less speaks for itself.

        I'll be able to buy a load of stuff on my wishlist when I get paid. I love GoG. Love being able to keep all my installers on an external hard drive. It's nice not needing to download an entire game again, after uninstalling it, when I want to replay a game in the future.

      Since there is a lot of misunderstanding on what fair use is, here is an official link to what the law says (below):

        ^^ Same here in Australia. They are quite strict about it. (Never head of anyone going to court over it, but still).

        And "fair warning" implies that you have done something wrong. Proper "fair use" wouldn't land you in court in the first place.

        @TheSorcerer, I agree with. The court wants to see the company informs the copyright violator first to show a good faith of a lawsuit, not just a surprise lawsuit. Rarely happen, but I am just explain the likelihood of wining the trail. I do not know why did I doing this.

        Yeah, I agree with getting given a fair warning. Often we might misinterpet something and think we are doing the right thing.

        Either side doesn't really want to spend time and money in the court. The 'other side' just wants to point out "hey dude, you can't really do that, it's ours".

        It's really not the consoles that are the problem. It's the games and the developers making them. Nowadays, companies are more interested in how to make money over pushing out high quality games. We have DLC and loot boxes and Season Passes and whatever else they find to nickle and dime you.

        As a result we're left with the same carbon copy games that follow a specific format. Whether It's open world exploration where you need to collect all these stupid items for no reason or an arena based combat simulator where you play in specific places over and over again. And of course, quick time events where you just need to press a specific button.
