I went bald at 20. You'll be fine. It's true I have a big ol' beard, but you don't need one. Be bald and clean shaven. Be yourself. You will be fine. Imo, don't try to save it. Let it happen. You will be fine. Own that shit. It's you.

Thread Dangen Entertainment Allegedly Robbing Indie Devs? (Update: Medium article with more allegations, Dangen responds)
Hey guys, Just to comment on the YT videos. Our team set the playlist to private, but in error didn't individually take down the songs. That is now done. In the case of Qwesta, we've sent him a direct message to inform him that a sales report has been sent to the head of the Devil Engine team over a week ago, and we've been waiting for an invoice so we can pay them. Just to clear things up.

Thread Dangen Entertainment Allegedly Robbing Indie Devs? (Update: Response From Dangen Entertainment)
Hey everyone. I loathe writing messages like this, because it means that something is on fire. I really wish I was writing a post about how awesome I thought X-men #2 was, or how much I’m enjoying Jedi Fallen Order. That said, I think it’s proper that I handle the issue at hand directly. Since even before its release, the developer of Devil Engine has been verbally abusive to us, and has been hugely toxic to our entire team. The toxicity got to a point that it started to affect my mental state, and we eventually mutually agreed to a commucation proxy to get work done. (I’m happy to offer up evidence if asked, but I’m not doing so right now to keep this post legible). There is no question that we made mistakes while working with the developer. We’re not perfect. When mistakes were made, we did our best to rectify the situation. Soon after the release of Devil Engine, the developer assigned a proxy to receive all revenue they had earned. This was to expedite payment and make sure that they DID NOT receive payment late. Withholding tax when transferring money out of the country is a giant headache, which is why a proxy based in Japan was chosen. We paid the developer’s proxy on July 23rd, well within the rules of the contract we signed. We also supplied evidence to the developer of the payment.. And now they’re attacking one of our other developers, encouraging people to pirate the game instead of buying it. Bug Fables is an incredible game that deserves better. Moonsprout Games has been working for a very long time on the game, and has created something that we’re insanely lucky and proud to be working with. They do not deserve this. Anyway, if anyone has questions or would like evidence, I do need to ask our counsel what we’re able to make public, as we do have an NDA in place. I hope this clears things up.

Thread Does anyone know how to break the "tomorrow I'll start my perfect existence" cycle?
I just take it one day at a time, working on small achievable goals. Make small improvements over time that you know are sustainable. Don't make large sweeping goals that are outside what you're capable of keeping long term. We all have our natural limitations that we have to slowly push, rather than shatter one magical day. Over time, the small goals will become habits, and you can take your eye off it and improve something else. Eventually, you'll build a bunch of habits that sustain you, and you'll wonder why it was so hard in the first place.Yep, this.

Thread Don’t be afraid to call out shitty Americans abroad
After living in Japan for close to 10 years, I've run into my fair share of shitty American tourists. I've also run into really wonderful people who are happy to respect the country as a place people call home. I call out shitty tourists who treat Japan like it's their personal playground. Why? Because Japanese people largely won't, and tourists take that as acceptance of their shitty behavior. This colors local opinion of foreigners in general, and it's a detriment to those of us that actually live here and call this place our home. Is it fair that we get painted with the same brush? Not at all, but that's the reality of the situation.Usually they don't tell you to go fuck yourself. They usually just begrudgingly stop. It helps if you live in the country, and are not a tourist yourself.

Especially when you want desperately to help someone, but you know you can't, and you just have to stand there and watch them crumble in front of you. That is easily one of the most soul crushing feelings I've ever had. If anything, the part I'm bad at is not feeling empathy, and having to take care of myself before others. That has hurt me a lot, especially recently.

This reminds me of Wild Arms 4. I kinda liked that every time you load your file, it would play the anime opening like you were entering a new episode of the anime. There was even a different OP if you had a save more than halfway through the game. But yeah, I loved the anime intro. It was great. I have a special place in my heart for games that have TV/anime style openings after intro gameplay.

Thread I'm going to Japan, should i stop being Vegan for 11 days?
Aside from what you WANT to do, being even a vegetarian in Japan isn't easy. Not a lot of restaurants offer veggie options. It's just a reality here. My friend is able to strong arm people into making veggie versions of what she wants, but she also eats very little, and sometimes just lives off some cabbage or some shit, so if you want to eat properly, not really the way to go.I dunno man. Here in Osaka, I constantly have to do research to find places that have veggie options when I take out friends that are vegetarian. And Japanese people generally consider fish vegetarian for some reason if you try to ask for veggie options.

Thread Remnant From The Ashes |OT| A New Soul Rises From The Ashes
I beat the tree boss with a buddy last night. here are my tips: 1) There is a max radius to his AOE stomp, so stay out of range of that if you can, but if you have a ring that increases evasion window, you can roll through it anyway. 2) We largely used repeaters to damage. Decent range, decent damage. 3) When he slams down on the ground, there is a weak point on the back of his neck. It does a lot of damage if you can snipe that. 4) when he starts launching the pods, look at him, and each time he launches one, dodge right or left a second later to miss the pod. If you have screamers coming after you during this phase, the pods will kill them when they explode, so don't worry about them too much while dodging. NOTE: Make sure your whole team is dodging in the same direction or are not close to each other. If you dodge into each other, it doesn't matter how good your dodging is, you'll dodge into a cloud meant for your teammate, and will get stunlocked by each subsequent pod until the phase ends. 5) Drink oilskin before walking into the encounter. This will give you a 30% increase resist to Rot, which will be essential to make sure you're not infected the whole time (we ended the fight infected and had to run for the checkpoint after beating it, but we definitely stayed alive because of the oilskin at the beginning). 6) Use bloodwort instead of dragon hearts if you can afford it. Whenever you're at half HP, just use a blood wort, and keep running and gunning. This will keep your dragon hearts free for emergency clutch heals and teammate revives. Hopefully that all helps. The fight took us like, 4-5 tries last night with two people. It was pretty fantastic.that's by design. The team has said that each campaign is so different there are bosses you will never see in a single run.

I usually hate Millar's shock schlock, but Jupiter's Legacy is surprisingly light on Millar's usual mean spirited crap, and actually does a good job shining a positive light on good old fashioned heroics. Also, the deconstruction of the genre is well done, and in the end, doesn't make you go "well shit, superheroes ARE stupid". Looking forward to seeing how close this sticks to the core story.I think the original story functions fine as a 2 season affair. Have Part 1 take up a single season, and then have Part 2 take up a second season. That also means that Season 1 is all setup, but the pay off in season 2 will be great.

Maybe Moira always told Xavier these things, and he had to go through the steps, knowing fully well that he would always have to approach that point. it would mean that Xavier knew that a lot of what he did would fail, but had to do it anyway, to reach the dream. Or maybe Maker Xavier is not who we think he is, and all is weird and bad. I guess we'll find out soon. I think it's interesting that Xavier used telekinesis to take Mystique's flash drive.

Thread Battles with forced losses are one of the worst tropes that are still used in games.
It's a great mechanic, as long as it's seemingly impossible, but the game doesn't TELL you that you're supposed to lose. If after that you're angry and frustrated, that means the mechanic worked as intended. You just don't like no win scenarios.this I agree with. You should be so bewlidered that you can't dip into your consumables very far before everyone is dead.

I think the way it works is that each hero receives XP for each defeated enemy they touch. This is why the "defeat 100" or "defeat 200" trials are recommended for leveling. That said, I've found the best way to level is to just play through the game, starting at a level that matches the level of the hero. It's a lot more fun than doing infinity trials over and over again, imo, and it seems to go by fairly quickly.

Thread "The look" - Black men and unconscious bias
As a brown man, I don't have to deal with what black men do to a large extent, but I also do not understand what is in the hearts of white people who do this. One thing that has made for an interesting social experiment has been living in Japan. When you're a foreigner, it doesn't matter what color your skin is. You are always an "other". It doesn't matter how much japanese you speak, or how long you've lived here. All of a sudden, white people start to get what other minorities go through, but in a safe environment where the majority won't drag them into the streets and beat the shit out of them. The foreigner community in Japan is really cool as a result. There's no racial hierarchy. It's just a bunch of people from different races and different countries, surviving together. All the same, I do notice that because of my brown skin, black people in Japan reach out a little farther to make friends with me. I don't know why that is. Maybe because they know as a PoC, they don't have to overcome some indoctrination I grew up to make friends, or maybe because they see commonality in our struggles. I won't pretend I've struggled as much as any black person, but I've had my fair share of being treated like garbage, just for being a PoC.

Thread What's the difference between an anime watcher/manga reader and a weeaboo?
I assume you're referring to people who do this OUTSIDE of Japan. The inevitable reality of living in Japan for years is that some words you remember better in Japanese than in English, and they come out in normal conversation around others that speak both Japanese and English. This is the same for bilingual people who speak both languages in their household. The definition of a weeb for those of us who have lived in Japan for years varies, I think. Usually it means 1) Someone who thinks Japan is flawless and it's the perfect country, and lecture others on it, despite only having lived in japan for a year, or 2) Someone that entrenches them in Japanese culture at a cursory level, but in no meaningful way (ie. has a kimono, and fetishizes Japanese imagery, but never learns Japanese or tries to fit in or converse with their locals).

I like both Fury's, but it would be inaccurate to say they're the same character outside of skin color. Their personalities are kinda different. Black Fury has more swagger. White Fury has more grit. They both do some fucked up shit in the name of freedom and safety.

Thread Game devs of Resetera, how do leaks impact your work?
I don't think it helps much to announce a game well ahead of it being shown at all. Games look ugly and broken very early on in development, so if you just showed a logo 2 years ahead of time, and spent that marketing money, would it be worth it? I'm not sure. People may just forget about it, or post "what ever happened to ____?" threads. Not seeing a game for a long time after announcement might have people lose confidence in the title, because it's taking too long. People generally don't know how games are made, so they don't realize that the game is going to take a really long time to get made, even in the case of small indie games. It makes more marketing sense to announce it closer to release, when the media they can release is indicative of the final product, and that excitement can directly lead to sales in the long term. The Marvel example is flawed, because they're the biggest game in town for movies. Not all studios can do that. If we announced 5 game titles with no screenshots, and spent money on the announcement with nothing to show, people would ignore us, and we would've wasted a bunch of money on promotion.

Thread Game devs of Resetera, how do leaks impact your work?
It hurts immensely. The whole point is to have a single point for maximum impact. This maximizes interest and excitement for the game. Leaks affect teams a lot, and there's a reason people get fired over leaking things. I had a conversation with my coworker just today about how crappy it is to see so many things leak this close to the start of E3. It must be hugely demoralizing for the devs and the pubs. I hear about all kinds of unannounced games by virtue of being in the industry, and I take my responsibility to stay quiet very seriously.

Thread Why You Shouldn't Overlook Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age - Gameinformer
I fully admit that despite being a huge FF fan since I was a kid, I didn't like FFXII the first time I played it. Playing it again in 2018, I realized that I was a moron, and the game was ahead of its time. The ending is still garbage, but up until that point, it's a masterstroke in combat design and art direction. It's become my favorite modern FF. Pure genius.I do not agree. The latter half of FFXII original is a cakewalk. Zodiac moves some of the most powerful spells to hard sections of optional dungeons that force you to actually earn them, instead of just buying or happening upon them. Holy is a simple example, but in FFXII, Holy was purchasable from Balfonheim after a certain part of the story. In Zodiac Age, it's only found in an optional side part of one of the late game dungeons, and cannot be purchased.

Thread [Reddit] Removing your support items in Anthem massively increases melee/combo/proc/ult damage
Jesus Christ. Empty slots don't count as 0 power? How do you let this happen?! I've enjoyed Anthem, but the constant mistakes and missteps are crazy.I'm sure it's obvious, but basically, power is calculated as a mean of equipped gear power. What SHOULD happen is that empty slots are calculated as zero power, to bring down the average. What's clearly happening here is that empty slots are just ignored, which has this effect. Since there are support items above epic, it's currently better to unequip them than to have them at all.

Two best combos in endgame imo are Venomous Blaze/Black Ice and Venomous Blaze/Stasis Chain. Stasis Chain rips off shields, and Venomous Blaze turns Flame Burst into the only acid primer Storms have access to. Black Ice also freezes enemies around the target when killing, so you not only spread the primer on combos, but they get frozen too. It's a killer combo for groups. I still only have amulet of winter, and no MW fire component, so I haven't tried Venomous Blaze/Ten Thousand Suns, but I can see that being a lot of fun.My buddy had the exact same issue last night.

No one is going to think less of you as a result. People will, however, think differently of you, if you're that guy always puking and blacking out. So, drink slowly, eat plenty, and when you think "eh, I'm not THAT drunk, let's have another drink", take a break.Yeah, this is a great way to avoid a hangover.

Yeah, that's totally understandable. To me, I found the Ranger to be a rather boring class, but I generally don't like Bioware's "soldier" class. The storm felt great, and I found myself floating above the battlefield raining death down, and sniping here and there. My friend played the colossus, and seemed to really like that. It's just a shame you can't trade loot.Yeah, I played with a group of friends that each chose different classes, and it was really cool to see how they all worked together. It was very impressive. All rangers feels like a weaker Destiny, but when you have a Storm, an Interceptor, and a Colossus in the mix, the "real" design philosophy behind the game started to show its hand more. That said, I think starting everyone with a Ranger is a design mistake. If you got to choose your first javelin, you'd be able to show off the gameplay diversity far earlier. I suspect some people will play the Ranger, feel that's the way all the classes play, find it boring, and move on to something else.

I actually disagree on the loot, but just for one reason: abilities. Playing with a Storm, my ability drops completely changed how I played the class in moment to moment encounters, and that to me was amazing. Additionally, I was playing with a buddy who was also a Storm, and our abilities were totally different because of the drops we got. That, to me, is fucking rad.For this reason, I think the Interceptor and Storm are the strongest classes right now. They're fantastic fun, and don't necessarily rely on the gunplay. I was just using fire blasts and glacial spears my whole time as a Storm.They were really open about the fact that the demo is specifically 6 weeks of bug fixes behind the release build.

Thread Younger gamers here (early 20s or less), have you gone back and tried older titles?
Im 35, and I'm actually pretty heartened to read that so many younger people are going back and playing older games. I totally understand that going past a certain generation can be tough for some, but I truly believe even the oldest systems have some gems that anyone could fall in love with today.

Thread Onimusha: Warlords HD |OT| Who Put Samurai in this Resident Evil?
The English version of Dawn of Dreams was tuned out of whack. You get too few red souls to power up the weapons you find, so you constantly have underpowered weapons, knowing that you'll just get a new one in a little bit anyway. The JP version is superior in this regard.

Thread Monster Hunter World: The Beginners' Hangout
In Low Rank, you can just gear up for raw DEF. That will serve you well. Once you hit high rank, it's far better to gear up based on skills that come with each piece, and then plug up elemental weaknesses with jewels and eating. There are some situations where you'll need to make new gear just for a specific fight where the elemental damage is crazy high, but that's few and far between.Elder bones drop from Elder Dragons. Wyvern gems you can get from a number of different monsters. According to the wikis, a high rank barroth investigation gives the best chance of getting wyvern gems.

Thread Spider-Man: Far From Home | Official Trailer 1 (July 5th, 2019)
That was a great trailer. Got what I wanted out of it. I love the dynamic of May knowing he’s Spider-man. That’s going to be a fun angle to explore. I should go read that Nuff Said issue when she found out Peter was Spidey and she wrote all the papers to defend him after years of disliking him.

Thread Destiny 3 should be free to play. Change my mind.
They shouldn't make a Destiny 3 at all. Iterate on Destiny 2, and keep building upon that. Introduce a sub model like Elder Scrolls Online Plus for people who wants to stay on top of all the expansions, and offer the ex pacs at a flat price for other players. Turn it into a platform. Stop making sequels.

Infrastructure required to do it properly means most 3rd parties won’t be able to do it themselves. They’ll be relying on huge companies that have their own server farms that are launching their own services.I can’t say much, but I will say that the level of integration with existing systems that gamers already use is going to be really neat.
