AoT's anime doens't work that well because it's partially finished. The manga's still going(Monthly chapters, though I believe it's set to end next year).

Beats of Rage. It's an engine that has been ported to many platforms, and has various games made with it.

Wow  :o, I guess the hate from this game steadily grew since the anouncement.
Considering this game came from Next Level Games, the same studio that developed the Mario Strikers series, Punch-Out!! for the Wii, and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.....

Honestly, if it wasn't for Other M the game wouldn't be nearly as hated pre-release as it is.

Time will tell how it's overall received, though. Time will tell.

I've been reading reports and it's apparently not a bad game at all... Just not very metroidey.

Gaming Discussion / "New" GBC RPG released.

The game isn't finished up. You can download the source code, which is apparently a mix of C and ASM, as well as the ROM itself.

On the initial question on why newer consoles games are not hacked as much, apart from what was already stated, like complexity of programming and graphics, my first thought is that the sheer size of the ROMs can be very daunting for many people. For comparison, the Super Mario Bros. ROM is 40 KB (40976 bytes). Super Mario 64 is 8 MB. The ROM I have on disk is 8.4 MB, or 8 388 608 bytes. That's more than 200 times larger. That's a lot of bytes to analyze.

Consoles with file systems don't necessarily have that issue. The code can be in a file much smaller than 8.4 Megabytes.

Shinji was a coward, but that was part of the point of his character. I don't think the authors of that comic got that.

That font palette makes everything so hard to read. Bold would help, or make the inner pixels white to improve contrast.

Yeah, i'm gonna second this. The font is really hard to read. =\

That's a little rich. Their actions were dumb, but fan games almost always come from a place of love on a franchise and wanting to work on it, but being unable to.

Clerical error. It happens. Sometimes the wrong button gets pressed as well. Again, it happens. Sorry.

Usually when something's pending, staff needs to discuss it for whatever reason. Back when I was staff, sometimes I flagged stuff I was unsure of, sometimes I flagged stuff that needed review by someone who had skills I do not...

It happens. Unless you get a rejection notice, don't consider it a big deal.

Long running politicians and CEOs are career criminals. I don't see how this is news.

Besides, Hilary hasn't asked her followers to make sure polling stations are being run correctly(First link from google): http://www.npr.org/2016/08/13/489889496/trump-calls-to-stake-out-polling-places

My point? One is bad, one is far, far worse.


Hopefully other states with Texas style ID laws'll get fucked by the court. The fact that Voter Fraud suddenly became a conservative issue when a somewhat more leftist than Bill Clinton president came into power speaks volumes, I feel.

Yeah, outside of certain exceptions the mod team doesn't lock or warn or etc by default. They rely on reports.

Wow at the end Gabe the dog is in there.

Wonder what his owner thinks of this.

Compared to similar things said in past election cycles (during the 08 primaries Clinton's reasoning for not dropping out in the month of May was basically "Hey, Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June, so you never know!") I still think this recent Trump thing is blown far more out of proportion than it should be.

You do realize 90% of those draconian stances were democratic stances until the Kennedy administration right? And if their constant stream of leaked emails is any indication, they still hold to some of those stances when no one's looking.

For the record, I only heard about that one today on twitter. NOT REALLY A FAN OF IT AT ALL

that said, while both are bad things, one's far, far worse. One is being self righteous as hell and trying to scare their supporters. The other is trying to scare someone else's supporters and subtley threat said someone else. I'll take the self0righteousness over the threat.

And who fucking cares if those stances were old democrat stances? This is not the 1950s and 1960s. Stop trying to bring the days of open bigotry back.

Plus, 7zip, well, is old as hell as well, and also in most cases compresses better, often a fuckton better(If a game is heavy in CDDA style music tracks Winrar's better. Sega CD is very much the poster child for systems with games that always compress better with Winrar).

Also I've heard that number for DQ7 more than once.

How much fuckin' grinding did you do, man? I could 100% that game in 60 easy and get everything short of 100% leveling up everybody to max and mastering all materia. Hell, I could probably pull off the first disc Omnislash.
