      Remember: there will always be someone who is in a worse situation than you, but that doesn't invalidate your own suffering and experiences.

        This could be extended to many things. You made a blunder, doesn't matter others made worse blunders, it won't invalidate yours. And many more. Essentially it can also be summarized into "Don't compare yourself to others, it doesn't change what you do"

        While the do not compare yourself to others applies to alot of extents, to me it never, doesn't and should not invalidate the need for it

      Scholomance isn't just a dungeon in WoW, it's a fabled school of magic, sometimes said to be run by the Devil, in Transylvania.

      Apparently, deadly nightshade was once used as eye drops by women so as to make themselves look more attractive by dilating their pupils.

        I do find it funny that, even when struggling to survive on a dead, frozen world, people adhere to rigid work hours, and get pissy when you tell them to work overtime so they don't starve or freeze to death. No idea how these people survived long enough to even find this big furnace if this is how they act. xD

        @SpicyNoodleStudios Is this in Sekiro? I was watching some videos on gameplay, and while human enemies look okay to fight, the monsters look like they ignore half the combat mechanics you're taught, such as the whole parrying and waiting for a killing blow thing. Big enemies in Bloodborne were also annoying.

        They seem fairly powerful at the start, but become less so as the game progresses. Not that many weapon types, unfortunately. You have one handed swords, two-handed swords, two-handed hammers, polearms, and bayonets\guns. I stuck with one-handed swords and used skills which complimented such a weapon.

        Playstyle isn't based on weapons though, it's based on codes, classes you can switch between at any time. These classes come with skills you can master, thus allowing you to use them in different classes. So, you can get fairly creative when it comes to your active and passive skills. Oh, and each code\class comes with its own stats, so it's best to pick one that compliments your playstyle.

        Oh, and gear weight and code mobility also determine how quickly, and how far, you can dodge. You can be so quick at dodging that you teleport; there's even a cool little animation\particle effect which accompanies it. You can also block and parry. I never understood the parrying system, so I stopped trying to use it. Relied on dodging for the most part.

        'Her former friends told The Post they fear for Autry’s mental well-being after watching the zoo videos.' I'm glad people are concerned about her behaviour. She posted about what happened on Instagram too. She seems to think God was protecting her, and that the lion knew she was acting out of love.

        Oh, she also broke into the giraffe enclosure. I guess that's slightly less dangerous than the lion, but it's still unfair on the animals and sets a bad example for others who may have seen her.

        The reasoning is probably the same as mine. Few people do anything interesting with it. Swords and Sorcery is pretty much it. I got into "isekai" (protagonist transported to fantasy world from modern times) anime because it does something different and interesting with the setting/genre. It's just become too "generic" to be interesting anymore.

        Fantasy is actually boring. I prefer Sci-fi for most of the time, especially space. As an outer space enthusiast, it's nice to see a different interpretation of outer space from ppl. And gameplay that derived from it.

        Unfortunately, im stuck making fantasy bcz it's lacking the scifi asset, and drawing machines are hard.

        I wonder why cathedrals in these types of games are so insanely big? 90% of the cathedral is nothing but sprawling arches not even connected to the main cathedral itself. It was a very bland area.

        My main gripe with the game, aside from some enemies attacking way too quickly and too often (some feel like they'd belong in a God eater game), is that you don't feel like a vampire. You're basically a vampire fighting other vampires, so it just ends up feeling like you've just got a few whacky powers.
