Thread Need help deciding... (Story of Seasons, Rune Factory, etc.)
The player characters in Rune Factory are pretty set in stone, minus accessory changes and putting in a different name. The game does have a story beyond "restore the town" and certain things are locked behind plot progression. SoS:FoMT definitely has less systems than SV, but it is a remake of one of the beloved games in the series and more relaxing to me personally. SoS:PoOT will definitely be closer to the 3DS SoS games as customization was big in those games compared to the FoMT remake.

Thread I’ve never played a visual novel — is 13 Sentinels the best starting point?
I also agree that the Ace Attorney and Zero Escape games would be better starting points. While I definitely enjoyed 13 Sentinels, the Destruction mode widely differs from most gameplay options in visual novels. Ace Attorney and the Zero Escape games do have puzzles and such which are more commonplace in the genre versus the RTS/tower defense in Sentinels. I do enjoy the Dangaronpa and Steins;Gates games as well but I must echo the point that they rely on anime-esque tropes more than AA and ZE do. And I would argue more than Sentinels does as well.

Thread Why women criticise sexualised character designs | OT3 | "Her ass is part of her character."
Agreed. Unfortunately a lot of western games just do not appeal to me on a gameplay level. Something like GTA will never appeal to me, even if they improve how women are portrayed in the game. And there are western games that while I enjoyed, they also contained issues regarding the sexualization of women (the Batman games). There are definitely JRPG series I have given up on over the years and titles that I played as a teen that I would not want to play now, but I do not think women just not purchasing the Tales of games for example would lead to any changes for the better. Something like Senran Kagura would have to be completely overhauled on a fundamental level to have its criticisms tackled and while other JRPG series definitely have work to do to improve their female characters, they are typically not created with the foundation being sexualization. And while they typically do not contain overt sexualization of the main character, otome titles do often deal with common tropes in female target romance media that are not exactly pro-woman but I do not think anyone is going to try and tell women to no longer consume romcoms anytime soon.

Are you asking for vegan food or vegan meals without those? Because unless you are specifically looking a kale salad/soup recipe, it will not be an ingredient in Asian inspired dishes for example. Avocado is usually a topping versus the focus of a vegan entree, so it can be omitted fairly easily. Nuts are easy to avoid due to labeling requirements and depending on the recipe can be substituted. Almond/cashew milk can be switched out and soy/pea protein instead. I think the biggest issue for nuts would be making homemade vegan cheese.

Thread Surprise! You are now the creative director for Pokemon’s ninth-generation games. What do you do?
More trainer customization, especially more hair styles and skin tones available at the start Allow players to have Pokemon follow them around like in HG/SS/LGE/LGP. The first gym leader will have three Pokemon, the second gym four Pokemon, the third gym five Pokemon, and the remaining gym leaders will have six Pokemon. Trainer battles in the field will also scale in Pokemon amount as well but not as fast as gym leaders. One gym will focus on double battles and there will be more trainers overall that engage in them in the field. Bring back triple and rotation battles, each with a gym focused on them and more trainers engaging with them in the field as well. The Elite Four and Champion are not type based but strategy based (offense, defense, status, etc.) Horde battles are brought back. Continue to have wild Pokemon pop up in the field but also have random battles in the grass. All new Pokemon in the region until you beat the Elite Four and unlock some sort of area that has sections for each of the past generations. In those sections are where you can catch older Pokemon. Pokemon Home allows you to take out past gen Pokemon once you beat the Elite Four, you can deposit Pokemon into right away. Bring back secret bases and the underground thing from D/P/P. Some sort of Battle Frontier. The rival will be similar to Silver. There will be an improved version on the online/local multiplayer thing from X/Y. The VS Seeker will autoscale the levels of trainers when you want to rebattle them each time. Have the writer(s) of B/W do the story or just go back to RBY/GSC where the story is minimal.

That would require Scamco to care more about the franchise. Several of the character models are the same ones from SC4 and/or SC5. They did not even carry over a bunch of the CaS equipment, some of the pieces having been usable since SC3. My guess is to sell it to us in the season pass. The game received little to no advertising and was having to compete against the disappointment of SC5, which is showing in the sales info we know for it now. I would not be surprised if the higher ups will be done with the franchise after the season pass content is all released. As an aside, I played Tira's story mode and her entire persona just makes me roll my eyes. Being an evil sexualized mentally ill (split personality) girl/women who goes on to kidnap children is something I wish interviewers would have asked Namco employees about but I guess not.

I actually thought that ArcSys already had an overseas branch before the recently announced one and the only reason they were not publishing Blazblu and Guilty Gear was because Aksys had a contract stating that they would publish those series under terms laid out in the contract. Either way, I definitely share the hopes of this meaning we get more otoges!

Yes, there are three stores within five miles of my house, one of which is across the street from a mall that had one in it before the other one was built. At one point, there was a fourth store but that one did close.

Thread Visual Novel Community Thread: No Auto Read Required
The SnK team has been much more upfront about any issues they have faced compared to Dies irae's team and they have not given vague messages regarding the Vita version and 18+ content, so I definitely think they have handled their Kickstarter better. Maybe them failing the first time helped them learn about the process.

Thread White landlord evicts black business owners after he sees them peacefully protesting on the news
So many landlords are already scummy when doing evictions since they count on their tenants not having the legal knowledge to know if what the landlord is doing is legal or not. This adds explicit racism to that.

Thread Racist teenager loses scholarship (yes, another one)
So many of these teens (and people in general) put an enormous amount of identifying information on their profiles that I would not be surprised if they have all the info they need to confirm just from the profiles themselves. Especially all of those people who put their school and place of employment directly in their Facebook profiles.

Thread A YouTuber Placed Her Autistic Adopted Son From China With A New Family — After Making Content With Him For Years
The two parents should be charged with child abuse. Ducktaping your child’s hand as a punishment is awful. YouTube needs to stop allowing videos with children in them to be monetized as a minimum improvement to their current rules. Even if family vloggers are not being obviously awful, there are so many that are robbing their children of their privacy. Children do not have the ability to consent to this. It has a lot of similarities with child acting. The parents in this are also the white savior type. Hopefully this prevents them from adopting ever again.

Glad to see more celebrities being exposed for being hateful to other castmates/people in general, especially considering how the industry tends to freeze out people who do not want to put up with racist behavior in favor of money makers.When she and Peter Evans were staying in a hotel together back in 2013, the police were called after people heard yelling in their room and Emma was arrested as the officers saw Peter having signs of a physical altercation.

Thread Uta no Prince-sama Shining Live released worldwide
Essentially it is. This is a free to play rhythm mobile game for the Uta no Prince-sama series. You build teams of seven cards based off the eleven guys, unlock moments that help strengthen your cards, and read the story bits as they release. If you have played the Love Live mobile game it is very similar and was made by the same developer.

Thread Uta no Prince-sama Shining Live released worldwide
Complete songs (not the event or some of the campaign songs which have different rewards) with full combos and meeting score ranks on each difficulty. You can get 9 prisms from one song on your first try (4 from score, 4 from combo, 1 from completion) Each time you complete a story section, be it part of the main story, the event story, or the side moments stories, you get 5 prisms. Maxing the level (which is 20) of the 11 starter N cards gets you 20 prisms each. Maxing the rank and level of all other cards (requires you to rank four the cards through special lesson and level cap depends on card) gets you 20 as well.

Learning that you can speed up unlocking the moments by scrolling as far right versus unlocking each one manually was such a time saver. And I did not realize that completing a song once on one difficulty allows you to auto play it on all four.

Thread Harvest Moon: One World announced for Nintendo Switch for 2020
Then they would not be able to profit off of those unaware that they no longer are localizing the Bokumono games as Harvest Moon but are instead developing their own titles under the name. Also Natsume still has the rights to all the virtual console/digital download releases for the games up through A New Beginnings. Considering how many titles that encompasses I would not be surprise if those make up a good portion of their revenue each year.
