  1. I don't understand what I just watched but it was highly entertaining.


  2. I finally decided to check out Celeste. I had heard it has mental health themes but never knew it was about anxiety.

    I probably would've picked it up sooner if I had. 

  3. Darn. I didn't want to sit through the credits of Heavy Rain too many times but it looks like I've got to.

    For seeing all the endings, I'm missing one from FBI Agent and three from the Dad.

    I'm ironically suffering from insomnia yet something boring isn't helping.

  4. Got recommended a video just now. People make the coolest stuff sometimes. XD

  5. Did Heavy Rain have to make choosing a conversation option so difficult?

    They're blurry, shake and move. What was wrong with the Mass Effect route? My eyes aren't perfect and it gives you a limited time in certain moments, then the character will blurt out one of them. Makes Trophy runs more annoying.

      You think that's bad, wait till you get to the arbitrary games of Simon Says.

      One of these days when you can, I should stream Beyond Two Souls to you xD. Again, Heavy Rain is actually his best game(Some people say Detroit, but I refuse that notion). Just think about that for a moment.

    3. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Yeah, Heavy Rain is as good as it gets for the Sadness Trilogy and anything after under Cage's name.

    4. DanJ86


      Jeez, you certainly make me wonder how bad the others could get. It would be unfair to say I hate Heavy Rain. It's just.....okay. But that could change as I try for the trophies.

      For comparison, I thought Paper Mario: The Origami King was okay when I completed the story. Then I tried to 100% complete it and the process to do so made me freakin' despise the thing!

      I'll probably check out Detroit: Become Human after I get all the Heavy Rain trophies. Assuming I can. From what I've read, Kamikaze is one of the harder ones.

      It asks you play the car trail without any mistakes....or without the motion prompts choosing to f*cking ignore you!?

      I suppose there is Omnikron which actually functions like a game, so that one might be better.

      @DanJ86 The car trophy has an issue with reversed controls that the remaster for whatever reason did not correct, basically when you get to that moment at 3:03 tilt the controller left to move right(Yeah I know, obviously right?). Aside from that just follow this video:


  6. It took longer than it should've but I've now sent my demo reel to SaberSparks.

    Now I have to wait and see if I'm too late to join or aren't good enough to be a part of this animation collaboration. 

  7. I suddenly want a Yakuza styled Sonic game.

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Imagine, a Sonic styled Yakuza.

    2. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Ichiban likes Dragon Quest so why they indulge in his secret Sonic fantasy?

  8. Finished. This is the demo reel I'm going to send in as an application for a collab. I dislike how it ends abruptly but I don't know how to fix that. I don't have many completed animations that are in a state to be shown off.

    1. pppp


      Looks good to me.

      So any updates? xD

    2. DanJ86


      I accidentally spoiled the story for myself. It wasn't a big deal, I only learned who the Origami Killer was. Story beats are still mostly a mystery to me.

      It was an interesting approach to write the characters as unlikable as they are. It means I don't have to care when a guy crawls over broken glass in a tight space, (How the hell did OK set all that up??) get repeated electro shocks and chop off his own finger.

      Does beg the question, how do these memory card things have footage of the child in real time? Are they supposed to be batteries to a live feed? If David Cage was gonna add super Sci-Fi stuff into this gritty drama, wouldn't it have been better to base it in a distant future or something? The gizmo that the FBI agent uses was jarring when I first used it and still doesn't really fit with the aesthetics. In my opinion.

    3. pppp



      He just can't help himself, he's one of those writers that has zero restraint. Any random idea that pops into his head that sounds cool during that first instant of thinking it up will be put on the game, regardless if it makes any sense.

    4. DanJ86


      I didn't want to mention this until I reached the moment in the game in which he is revealed. I'm there now, so here I go! XD

      Spoiler tagged because it's long. ^^;


      How the hell is so little evidence found on the Origami Killer? David Cage wants me to think it's because the killer was a police officer, but I don't buy that. The guy has no accomplices and the only way to remove evidence would be to be the first one on the scene, considering the amount of victims, that'd have to make somebody suspicious.

      He couldn't account for if any of the trapped children were able to leave a message behind, after all, they were left alone for days in cold water. (Which also means we have to pretend that hypothermia doesn't exist to account for the drowning aspect.)

      Lets not forget how stupidly lucky he'd have to be to create tests for the fathers who wouldn't send in those easily traceable clues to the police or even mention them to the mother. Jeez, it's strongly suggested that the tests our playable guy does are the same ones the other fathers did, so....why didn't any other bodies turn up close to those locations? I can only account for that one guy in the obnoxious, class filled tunnel.

      Our 1st protagonist got some creepy poem letters before his kid was stolen so the killer obviously picks his targets carefully.

      To be fair, their might be a plausible reason for some of the points I made. I'm not sure how much game is left, as of writing this, I just saw the Origami Killer reveal with none of the characters dead.

      Which is actually pretty lucky considering how picky the controller likes to be with the motion QTEs. I'd also like to blame the game slightly in how the hold, repeated presses and tap action symbols barely look any different.


  9. I've been putting it off for months but now I've finally committed to a video editing software. Too many choices.

    I picked Wondershare Filmora X. It was suggested as a good option for beginners which is what I am. With it, I added sound effects to this:


  10. bG0ZJVl.gif

    Darn. I thought I finally finished this scene but as you can see, the line art on the background has a slight error.

    Still be adding sound effects next.

    1. pppp


      So Dan, how's Heavy Rain?

    2. DanJ86


      Oh, yeah. Yesterday, I reached the second time I can play as the FBI agent and had to wait for the damn detective to show up. I'm playing through that now and the first thing he says is "I've been expecting you." Then....why did I have to wait??

      Now I've just had to tie a grown mans tie for him and...dammit, this game is weird. Still, this scene isn't as corny as the one after the father blacks out and his kid goes missing. Seeing the character with these graphics, screaming into the night sky is pretty horrific and not for the reasons I suspect David Cage wanted.

  11. I shouldn't do a play by play narration of my experience with Heavy Rain, it's just....it's a really weird game.

    After playing the whole Prologue by driving humans, when I finally get into a car, I adjust the mirror, turn the key...then the fucking thing leaves with no player input!?

    I got into a fight that felt like gameplay but now I have to make small talk with a child. I tell you, it's making my social anxiety act up. I'm shit at making small talk and knowing what to do around children.

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Yeah, get used to David Cage hames playing keep away with what could be actual fun gameplay sequences by railroading you with automation.

    2. DanJ86


      Hang on, I'm the FBI Agent again. I have no idea what the names of any of these characters are.

      So now I have to...wait? Actually wait...I'm controlling how a character sits and waits?? Are you freaking kidding me?!?!

      It's also a bit of a bitch that I struggle to see the text for conversation prompts. My TV is pretty small and my eyes ain't perfect. I don't usually need to wear my glasses to play games but with this one I do.

  12. So I finally got around to playing Heavy Rain, I've heard lots of interesting things about it.



    It's really a slow burn. I'm used to pressing button prompts to a music rhythm. Kinda strange to have what feels like driving controls for walking. Son of a bitch draws better than me too. 

    1. pppp


      It doesn't really get better, since the plot is completely nonsensical by the end and the characters are poorly defined.

      The bad acting and badly aged graphics don't help either.

    2. StaticMania


      Enjoy it while it lasts.

    3. DanJ86


      @pppp I get what you mean by the graphics. Just saw the scene when you play with the kids and those smiling faces are the stuff of nightmares.

      I downloaded it when it was free on Playstation Plus so no wallet was hurt in this transaction. If you don't count the subscription fee.

    4. pppp


      @DanJ86  Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on a certain thing at the end of the prologue involving a car xD

      Everybody is beffudled by that.

    5. DanJ86


      @pppp ????

      You mean how a child dies by getting hit by a car (Which didn't seem to be going that fast.) despite an adult male being a shield? Also, why didn't the balloon float away immediately? Why did the woman not give a shit about the guy? Did the guy pass out? Why didn't he make a noise, like in pain or terror? It seemed like the kids body was further away from the car than it should've been? Judging by where the woman runs to anyway. Do spoilers matter for a game this old??

      I'm glad I didn't pay for this. ^-^;

    6. pppp


      @DanJ86  There's actually a behind the scenes reason to be fair. Do you have Discord? I always have a laugh hearing people experience a David Cage game for the first time xD

    7. DanJ86


      Yeah. This is my Discord ID thing. Dan-imeJ86#1138

      I've also got Detroit: Become Human which was free at one point and haven't played it yet. Should I be worried?

    8. pppp


      Well, it depends on how much you enjoy shitty b movie schlock xD

    9. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      I've also got Detroit: Become Human which was free at one point and haven't played it yet. Should I be worried?

      Oh dear god. That is quite possibly his WORST narrative crafted yet. And considering David Cage, that's saying something.

  13. Bug Fables free update is out now. Kabbu's charge has changed considerably.

    Instead of a short burst, he constantly runs. Makes travelling easier and lets you blast through enemies. You can also steer him.

      We Paper Sonic now, then?

    2. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      Played it the other day. Even if it was a couple little quests, it still feels good to return to the game.

      I wouldnt mind if they added little quests like these every now and then. That said, i might have to replay the game sometime soon.

      Also got my ass kicked by the new bosses. Good thing i saved before, because there's no rematches apparently.

    3. DanJ86


      @Supah Berry Actually, since you play as three characters at the same time and can swap them with a button press to use their unique abilities, it's more in line with Paper Sonic Heroes.

  14. @AWild No.1 washed up gamer Hey, remember last week when I shared the custom Sonic Forces Chaos 0 boss fight video and you thought it'd be better playing as Tails?


    Mods can do anything. o_0 

  15. Can't sleep.

    Anyone got any advice for dealing with a nuisance neighbour?

    He keeps sticking his nose into our business, complaining about anything we do and looking for any reason to report us. He's accused my family of something that was "against the rules" twice now and both times they were proven false.

    My mother tried to reason with him but got nothing but abuse instead.

    1. Polkadi~☆


      Can always report to city council.

      I've never dealt with this, but dealing with nuisance neighbours is in jurisdiction of your local council.

    2. DanJ86


      I guess that's our best option since the guy is hell bent on acting like a child. Seriously, the guy looks like he could be in his 50s or 60s and he's acting like a brat.

  16. LFBkBLh.gif

    Been working on an animation to be featured in a demo reel. I kinda like how it looks except the arm movements look too stiff.

  17. A custom made Chaos 0 Boss Battle in Forces??


    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      This looks like a pretty naff boss fight from a purely objective perspective looking at this in a vacuum. But it's amazing what people have done here. I can't knock their efforts; this is a mod, not official. Regardless of what I said to begin with, if this battle was in Forces exactly as it is here, it would still be better than the other bosses (except maybe Modern Sonic's fight against Infinite at a push).

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Posted about it last night, was impressive that they added it in. Like the remix too.

    3. AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      Would've been better to fight him as tails.

    4. Sonictrainer


      That looks a fun fight.

  18. I'm watching some Game Apologist videos and he shares a Game Boy Advance TMNT game that may have been made by the Scott Pilgrim team.

    I had no idea that this existed. Makes me nostalgic for the times when Ubisoft made actual games.

  19. Joy-Con drift just made me accidentally quit during a gen attempt of Piston It Away in Crash 2.

    I should be angry but I found it funny for some reason.

  20. I'd forgotten that I also have the N. Sane Trilogy on the Switch too.

    It's funny how having completed the trilogy on PS4, the idea of doing it again, fills me with dread. Coco was watching the opening of the first Crash Bandicoot game on the Switch version.

  21. So I thought I'd watch some content from Scott The Woz. I like his style of comedy, though I do sometimes feel unsure if he likes or dislikes the game he's talking about.

    Still...I had him discussing video game boxes for 50 minutes in the background while I did something else and found the subject pretty interesting. lol

  22. My family have had bad luck with horrible neighbours.

    I'm so tired of people I care about being pushed around.

  23. I forgot I learned this.

    Ape Escape had a sequel on PS2 that never left Japan in which you steal pants from monkeys with a vacuum.


  24. The 20th can't come soon enough for me. This uncertain waiting is hellish and feels incredibly slow.

    It's not a game or anything. I'm waiting on some important personal news.
