It can't be denied however, that Mirror's Edge has appeal because it is first person. If it were third person, it would have been an entirely different game. This being said, due to IK and and easy pawn swapping, it is now possible to have both available to the player. I am not sure how well it would translate, but it could be interesting.

Hello everyone, I just noticed the site is back and running, I was a user a long time ago and Im very happy to see it back again. I remember there were forums in different languages, I am a Spanish native speaker, if there is anything i can do to help please let me know.
Obligatory announcement: 16 years later, I still love you guys/gals.

That is all. :)

Everyone might have noticed that the internet has allot less manga and anime accessible now. Japan just passed some new 'piracy' laws that knocked out a big chunk of distribution and streaming sites.

Everything is consolidated into Torrent sites. Gone are the days of Direct DL and Kazza. Streaming is still very much alive and well, though. Pirate streaming along the lines of Megadownload are cropping up all the tine for sites to embed.

Torrent sites are becoming more and more hazardous. I am pretty sure the discussion of piracy techniques are not cool here, suffice it to say that the 3-6 strikes policy is in full effect. The people I am living with keep downloading music (bad music at that) and they are threatening to turn off our internet for 6 months.

On another note, I am very pleased to see Title II going into effect. It isn't the ideal solution, but any laws that universally upset the big telecoms, I am all for.

That's nothing that proxies can't fix. Most are pay services but aren't expensive at all. Then you have local providers that aren't Comcast that usually don't give a damn either way. It's when you sign up with Verizon and the like that the risk goes up. Though it's not always the case. In my case, my complex is right behind a Lowe's. I'd just steal their internet and run torrents through it.

Regardless, I'm keeping a close eye on SM Crystal now. Anything that the old anime or Manga didn't cover might get explored a bit more here. Might pick some material from it if it doesn't wholly contridict the continuity we're running on.

I haven't been impressed so far. If it does catch on and bring back the fan-base (of which I am very doubtful) I question the quality of people that it might draw in. After my experiences and the corrosion of the Brony fandom, I remain pessimistic.

Also, I am not with Comcast, I am on Suddenlink. I realize there are extreme options available. While I am all for supporting the original authors - and double that for indies - I think allot of larger publishers forget where their fans come from.

I didn't say it was good or bad, though I certainly think it improved after the first arc. I merely said that any changes they decide to make could be cherry picked for our poor neglected project.

Hey, Unreal 4 is amazing. All of the technical limitations we had before are gone. We have full access to the source, and visual scripting. Just about anything is possible, given the art assets. I've been drawing now for a couple of years, and have put myself through some courses, so I have some more ability on that end as well.

Guilty Gear Xrd is on Unreal 4, isn't it?

Beautiful game that was done exceptionally well visually. Even their crappy story mode/movie wasn't a complete bore to watch.


Boss is trying to screw me out of a promotion to a leadership position. Dunno who he has in mind for it but me being the only person left qualified for it (everyone else quit or was fired), that person will have no clue what he's doing. I'm more than annoyed that I might have to baby sit someone who out ranks me. Bad enough I have to train a revolving door of temps that are too stupid or lazy to give a s***.

Unfortunately, promotions or even getting a decent job is completely based on whether the right person likes you or not.

Also, I've managed a few places and finding help that comes in on time AND does there job is nearly impossible.

I tried your teamspeak channel and as you said, I couldn't see anything. I especially liked how you gave me the permissions password with no way to use it. Your room is locked up tighter than Fort Knox. I can't imagine you getting trolled that hard on there. But then again, it's been about two years since I poked my head in, wasn't it?

Moving away from the more internalized conversations that I should probably just email you about...I seem to be getting restless in recent weeks. I don't know if it's the change in seasons but I can't seem to relax or sit still much. I woke up with a start this afternoon thinking that I overslept for work and nearly scared myself into a heart attack. During a time of year when one should be going out and enjoying some sembelence of life, my mind and body seems to be stuck in Winter mode and just can't seem to adapt to all the added activity that seems to be happening around me. I'm jittery when I'm trying to rest and I'm tired when I'm trying to work. It all seems so ass backwards to me right now.

At least the weather hasn't been too hot. But with some of the muggier nights I've had the past couple of days, I'm starting to wonder if Summer is going to come early this year.

Edit: God, this reads like a journal entry rather then a forum post.

I will email you with the details again. Until I give you permissions, you can't see anyone in the private channel. The third channel down.

I'm rather jazzed. My S.H. Figuarts Sailor Saturn came in the mail today.

I'm a horrible collector in that I took her out of the box and set her up with her eyes closed and her glaive about to unleash a can of something.

No point in having nice things if you never enjoy them. My Funko Lyra figurine sits out of her box, enjoying her home beside my old tele. Who cares about a little dust.

Before I moved and put them in storage, I used to have a whole line of random cheap plushies and figurines lined up on a shelf from the conventions I'd constantly hit up. Haro, the GP-02, Protoman, Raphael, Alucard, a whole line of pencil sharpeners featuring mechs from Zeta Gundam I got from an overpriced boxset, one of those hard hat things from Mega Man, the first bottle of ramune I ever drank, and a few others I'm certain to be forgetting. But my hoarding slowed to an eventual stop as I kept moving. It's bad enough that I have about a dozen game consoles and about 20+ games for each of them at the very low end. But I still collect on that end because I still dig them out from time to time.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Those sharpeners sound pretty cool. Maybe when you get settled and take them out of storage, you can share a pic or two. Never get rid of your games, they will become increasingly harder to find. The golden era of gaming passed on, and nothing like that will ever exist again.

Speaking of games by the way, I just did this:

With the AAA guys churning out, "The Order: 1886" and the Indie guys with walking sims like, "Gone Home" I'd have to agree with you. Not enough people who grew up playing video games are developing them. It's mostly people who think solely on the business side of things and the hipster wannabes that never touched a controller back when the gamer geeks weren't the trendy crowd to be apart of.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Our studio is trying to fix that, we have a couple of games that will go on greenlight before to long. We also have Super Smash Ponies, which I have used to learn an immense amount about Unreal 4. I am hoping we can get the funding needed to go full time with game development.

I love 2D, and I think, while there is an abundance of games, they all lack polish and a certain something.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
In terms of old school styled games, you have those that do it right, "Shovel Knight" and those that have no clue, "Fez". If you were to play those two games back to back you'd quickly see where the differences lie and a quick bout of research behind the developers would tell you why.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
Don't even get me started on the special type of person Phil is. Shovel Knight was great, and I loved how they attempted to get some of that retro feel. Our game is doing something similar on a smaller scale. I will toss you a copy when we get it to a playable beta. It shouldn't take too long, we already coded the base for it. Art assets are taking forever though.

As we inch closer to a release (finally) with SSP, I finished up a new website for the game:
http://supersmashponies.com/

Lots of things going on, including day labour in mean time. Gotta tear off a roof tomorrow.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Just as a heads-up; Sourceforge is being evil; I've removed all crescent content, including the CVS server from there. I left the project page in place, but it has nothing in it. Not that anyone should be using 15+ year old software, but if you need it for some purpose, let me know and I'll get you access.

@Magus12000BC- For the longest time I kept my very first bottle of Ramune, too. I didn't know that was a thing. Unfortunately it did have to see the recycling at my moving at some point. My finances have made it a lot harder for me to acquire new things. Now a days if I go though an old box of stuff I haven't looked at for months it ends up being some highly detailed trip down memory lane.

I don't think it's a conscious fad or anything. Just certain sects of people thinking alike. For example, I didn't notice other people keeping their convention badges until I had a small collection of them myself.

Well, Dragon Ball Super premiered sometime last weekend. Hopefully this turns out better than...who am I kidding. Toriyama comes up with two new ssj forms with the only difference being hair color and having incredibly dumb names. The man isn't trying and people poo poo all over GT for going a direction no one liked.

This is one of the reasons I respect Takeuchi. When she says something is donr, it's done. You can cash in on a franchise without dragging through the mud and I feel Sailor Moon has done that far more gracefully than Dragon Ball has.

Even taking off the nostalgia glasses, I believe the old series of SM had better development (and that is saying something), of course, its target demographic back when SM was first developed was completely different than today.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
I couldn't make it all the way through the original Dragon Ball Z because it just got too repetitive (train, scream for episodes, eventually win) without any worthwhile character development (in my opinion). I never even touched GT, but yeah, I have no plans of seeing Dragon Ball Super.

I still think it was amazing how not just myself, but countless others were able to 'grow up' with Sailor Moon. The characters and plot (in general, rolling my eyes at SuperS) got more complex and mature and not only did I 'grow' with it during my teenage years, but the only other phenomenon that's done the same is the Harry Potter books/films.

I've been watching random people on Twitch lately. I saw one guy get over $2,000 in donations for speedrunning Mega Man X2. He seemed like a nice guy, but I still couldn't help but to get disgusted about that. Some guy made in half an hour what I do in 5 weeks. So I sit and ponder over my collection and start to wonder if I should start a Twitch group or something. I feel like a sucker for not moving on any of this.

You should definitely do it, but don't half-ass it. It's all about the social media. I've gotten into affiliate marketing, and while I am not making a living yet, it is pretty sweet. Affiliate marketing is where you write different blogs, ect, about top 5 whatever, and then link that whatever using a referral link. You get like 10% back of whatever sells. There are also link-walls and other tactics as well. It's hard work to get going though, and it takes a fair bit of technical knowledge. Holler if you need help getting started with Twitch, YouTube or whatever.

I gotta quit nickel and diming myself on Yu-Gi-Oh. I figure me picking the game up again was just me trying to fool myself into thinking I'm doing something constructive in my off time. But as much fun as it is beating down kids and neckbeards with a budget deck, that money spent adds up quick. Still, it's nice to have a card game that is almost as old as Magic still be around. So many others don't get to see much passed a year.
signature image Some things can't be unseen.
I still do magic occasionally, but they intentionally ramp up the cards every year to force even casuals to buy new ones. That wasn't standard practice 10 years ago, but now is the norm. I can't enjoy a night with my friends without dumping $200 into cards. Just isn't worth it anymore.

I suggest if you want to save some cash. If you are playing with friends, put restrictions on type and generation. This ensures no one is spending over $20-$25 on a deck.
Life is like an orange, it is small, round and has a few pips in it... Oh, and some have half of one for breakfast.
Yugioh is definitely superior in that regard. There are a good deal of runnable themes in which the main deck shouldn't run you more than $30 depending on what splashable support you want in them.

They like to make their money with Extra Deck cards. Solid Xyz, Fusions, and Synchros became the selling point of just about every new pack. And those are often the tougher pulls inciting $80 prices for some of them. But even then as reprints come out, the prices fall to a fraction of what they were. Konami uses this model to keep selling packs and tins and it works very well for them because it helps to keep the game accessable from the dealer's end of things.

Certainly a step up from what they were doing 10 years ago.

Hi everyone. It's been quite a while since I have been on here.

Over the last year or so I have been on a nostalgic anime re-watching kick. Watched dragon ball / dbz / dbgt, tenchi muyo, and just bought a box set and starting watching Sailor Moon from the beginning. I also have the first two seasons of Ranma waiting to be watched. I'm glad I haven't lost my interest with age...

Has anybody else dived back into the classics? Any recommendations for new age animes?
signature image -
Good post 2000 anime? I have a few I can suggest.

Kaiji - It's about a compulsive gambler and all around nobody caught up in games of life or death.

Usagi Drop - About another all around nobody to takes in and raises a young girl while learning life lessons of responsibility in the process. Sounds boring but executed in a way that holds your interest.

Madoka Magica - Magical girl anime with a suddenly dark twist that constantly tries to one up its sense of dread.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure - Ridiculousness on a golden level. A must watch.

Log Horizon - I haven't seen this one yet. But I'm constantly told that it's like .Hack without the bad writing.

I hate Facebook. When I have to ask my girlfriend if her damn phone is more interesting then me...

Actually, I think every hookup I've had for the last 6 years had the lady I was with burying her nose in her phone. But it has really gotten worse over the passed year to 18 months it seems.

@josh - Oh man that is terrible. That sucks they can't give you time with your family.

@magus - This and all of this.I was dating someone for a short time, and they would not put the damned phone down. Their life was work, and bragging about trolling people on Facebook about their political opinions.

Her mom was nuts too. One day they sat and had an hour long conversation about flaming some random dude on Facebook that didn't like one of their post. I've come to the conclusion that smart women are too smart to be in a relationship, and the sheep aren't worth it.

It's more of a board thing than a blog thing. Ever since Crystal 3 started, I'm seeing these people crawling out of the woodwork and trying to co-opt the dam show. It isn't enough that Haruka is a strong lesbian character. No, they want her to be "gender fluid" among other such nonsense. And I'm seeing that botched translation of the Manga used as reference.

It's also not as if we don't get 3 FTM trans* sailor guardians in Stars, either. She's a somewhat masculine presenting Lesbian, as far as I know based on all source material leading up to Crystal.
Oh hell, one of the most beautiful scenes in the original series was between homosexual men. Why these parasites feel the need to feed off a thing until it is dead and devoid of substance is beyond me.

I think a lot of that stems from the current nature of the internet in general. The reason they have to bastardize any and every form of media is the same reason people just have to know what they ate last night for dinner. They're self important blow hards.

Look at it like this. Think of any bad fanfiction you heard of or read. You have two kinds of people commenting on it. Either you have people saying that it sucks and they should probably stop if they're feeling particularly annoyed, or you get some teenage autists white knighting the work because they're part of some internet social circle. When the author responds, you get the kind of reaction you'd expect just dismissing criticism and embracing the white knights. The author learns nothing and continues inflating his ego with more crap.

Now think of this internet circle jerk expanding exponentially over a period of about two decades. And here you have SJW's.

So I was just screwing around on YouTube and I stumbled across a recent video of Jon Stewart talking about the election. So I decide to take a look and the channel having ads up loads one up for the Ford Fusion. But what I saw was unexpected and long after I watched the entire thing with my jaw hung open and a pounding headache right behind my eyes, I didn't hear or register anything that was said in the actual video I wanted to see. I even forgot what I was watching. So I did a quick google search and I just want to leave this here.

Woo, I'm back! I missed you guys! Seriously, I did try to log in a month or so ago to see if I could help someone out with an account, and it turns out that I was locked out, too.

I have way too much stuff in front of me that I need to get done, but between being on multiple days withdrawals of medication I'm supposed to be on, and having a car that's many months past registration due (I got pulled over for a warning once already)... I need to clear this stuff up before the new year.

It doesn't leave much time to do the whole "celebrating" thing for the "holiday season" (time when everyone has family and stability except for me). So the past couple of years I've been slowly beginning to thicken my emotional skin and not totally just break around this time of year, but I still can't enjoy it.

The Sailor Moon Ford Fusion commercials are a hit and miss. 1. I'm glad Sailor Moon is now "famous" enough that someone thought it'd be worthwhle to market an unrelated product with them.
2. The "new" dub voices annoy me. Not as badly as the Cloverway ones, but it's either Japanese or my cheesy DiC voices for me.
3. Don't they realise that the people they're marketing to, like me, are mostly all under the poverty line, or at least not able to even buy new expensive things like cars and houses?
