What have kissu's gamers been looking forward to recently? Or is there anything interesting/fun you guys are playing now

Finished my NES Mega Man collection. Started playing Gargoyle's Quest 2. It's bretty good but you can barely hover for more than a couple seconds which is annoying. I guess that will get better later in the game.


I was playing Majora's Mask earlier, but I'm just going to stop at the Stone Tower Temple part until I feel like playing Majora's Mask again.
Currently I've been playing vanilla Minecraft again. Its kinda fun now


Playing Legend of Dragoon a game I haven't touched in 18 years and now realized how in unintentionally funny the translation is.
"People are being killed! Ther're dead for no reason dying because of Black Monster!"


Man, what a great game. I think it's been even longer since I last played it. Too bad the optional/post game(?) stuff really required a guide to find.
Really great music, too, but it was so hard to find all the songs online back then...


It wasn't until this latest play through that found out there was side quests I also learned that the game was meant to have a new game+ utilizing the pocket station but it was cut.
I also loved the music and the background art. Forgot to mention I'm also challenge running the game the challenge is I'm not upgrading my armour or weapons the only slot I'm using will be the accessory and it's tough so far I just started disc 3 and I think I'm in for a nightmare.

How could we detect resolutions higher than our eyes could see?




How do you really tell visually? A computer can display it sure but we're still using our own eyes to look at the computer screen.


It's easy when you realize our eyes aren't real

I'm getting back into Skyrim modding and I'm interested to see the tastes that people have for various choices like lighting or weather mods. So… let's see what kissu thinks about stuff!

File:CreationKit_iplGphrfsi.jpg (410.8 KB,1920x1037)

learned how to place NPCs and disable AI so I can easily compare them next to each other


Is this still skyrim? It looks so different.


I spent today looking at various animations and frameworks and that one does seem pretty interesting. In the time I was gone from Skyrim modding a guy came onto the scene and really revolutionized animation behavior files. Previously, all animation was done a certain way and this guy named Fore was the only guy responsible for it. You had to use his system or nothing else. I remember reading rants about the way he did things, but it seems like people are slowing moving away from his FNIS program because of this new Nemesis system. This new one allows conditionals and other things that have really opened up a lot of new potential.
I think I'm going to make something with it, but not until I finish setting all this up.


For that video speciffically, Inpa isn't really using his own animaitons for his mod. If you download Inpa Sekiro Combat all it does is provide the combat mechanics shown in the video. The animations seen there are provide by a a collection of animation mods; the parry is from mo fu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laLPm46p9cs). Using DAR (dynamic animation replacer), Inpa has another mod (https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/40415) that is basically a collection of animations from other authors combined.
DAR is really powerful, it lets you play animations based on more factors than vanilla considers. For example you can have different jumping/falling animations based off of armor type or fall height (https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/36889). Have different swimming animations depending on armor wieght or even race (https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/34853). Both those mods also support different animations depending on what armor perks you choose.


Yeah, I've been reading up on the DAR thing. I think I might end up seeing if I can adapt SoS into it unless someone has already done it (not touching LL stuff yet). I really need to look at how this stuff touches behavior files, especially if they created any sort of program for it apart from havok's old stuff.

This is a thread for the discussion of Visual Novels. This includes disucssion of both translated and untranslated works, as well as release dates and translation progress.

What are you currently reading, anons? I finished the first two Muv Luv parts recently, but I need a bit of a break from these characters before jumping into the good one, so I picked up One on a whim. Not too far in, but seems good enough so far. Nothing exceptional, but it's pretty old, so I'm not really expecting anything groundbreaking.

That's pretty much the norm, as people have said. I've dropped so many vns after 5-15 hours due to attention span issues that I've lost count. It's at least 30 or so.


Tips are essential for understanding the story and creating context. It's a system I actually really like as it gives us a break from the main narrative, but often without letting up on the gas as the story gets rolling.
I know a lot of people like this. I almost always tend to finish visual novels, but I have a problem with dropping manga. I almost never finish manga.


File:go-away.jpg (66.92 KB,1024x619)

Well, I finished Muv Luv Alternative. Have to say I wasn't much of a fan at all. I found the characters really bland and the plot pretty poorly constructed. There was a lot of exposition dumping and things made up solely to fill in plotholes. The presentation was really nice, and I liked the pacing in the action scenes, but that's about it. Honestly I don't even think it's the best Muv Luv. Unlimited was unremarkable but I also felt like it didn't make any major missteps, which is more than I can say here. The whole PTSD arc just ruined the middle of the VN, and the ending, while alright, lacked impact because of that lackluster middle.


Now you know the truth, it was always overhyped garbage. Congrats on your wasted 50 hours.


>50 hours
More than that because of Extra and Unlimited. On the one hand, yes, I wasted my time. But on the other hand, now I can bitch about it and fans can't deflect with "you wouldn't get it because you dropped it too soon." I do the same thing with Fate/Stay Night and it brings me immense satisfaction, though defenders of Nasu tend to tell me that despite hating the 80 hours I spent with F/SN, I'm sure to love Fate if I just gave it 30 more or whatever.

Is there a bigger tard than this dumbass? Seriously, throughout the entirety of Shion's arc he kept pulling off more and more amazing feats of stupidity. Walking into the dungeon with Shion, always believing her to be possessed and somehow fixable, then in his utmost act of idiocy going outside alone to meet her when he knew she was out of it. This guy takes being dense to another level

I started learning Japanese this week. I feel really good because I recognize a lot of what I'm learning from watching anime. Excited to get to the point where I can start reading Yotsuba&! Hopefully some day I'll be able to read VNs easily.

I just hope I don't begin to slack off and eventually give up like everything else I tried to learn...

Saw this and it made me wonder if there's any guides for dialects besides just standard Japanese. Probably not, I guess.


So 世話をする means to take care of something, but I've heard the term お世話になります used often in anime to mean something along the lines of "I'm in your care". Setting aside the お which is just there for modesty can you also apply this to other noun+をする verbs to change them into noun+になる and how does that affect their meaning if you do?


Is there a reason why you'd want to learn a particular dialect? Or rather, which one is the "mainstream" one? Man, this stuff is so complicated


I don't have any reason to want to learn a dialect, I just find it interesting that there's never really any resources to do so in the first place. Anyways, the standard Japanese dialect is just the dialect spoken in Tokyo, as opposed to kansai ben for instance. It's somewhat similar to how Parisian French is the standard French that's taught, as opposed to the French spoken in Switzerland or Belgium.


Not really. There are other words that can be used with both verbs (for example, 勉強する・勉強になる) but it's not a set pattern or anything.

To be precise, there was an active effort in the late 19th and early 20th century to unify the Japanese language; the current standard variety of Japanese (標準語) is based on a specific variety spoken by educated Tokyoites.

As for learning dialects, you can easily learn (to parse) Kansai dialect by reading and watching things with characters who use it heavily. Examples: CCS, Lovely Complex (pretty much the entire show is in Kansai dialect), Love Hina etc.

>Original Story (ストーリー原案) Kodaka Kazutaka

An action show filled with colorful characters and fun in its first episode, then on top of that it's ALSO made by the Danganronpa author deviating from his usual formula? How come nobody told me about this sure to be epic show?
