We Know Better

Whoa dude, it’s 2016?!

This is a post from the RT Games blog, conveniently converted onto Tumblr for you.


We hope everyone’s 2016 is off to a solid start. Less cookies, more push ups, right? Yeah, we gave up on that too. Well, then let’s talk about our plans for RWBY: Grimm Eclipse for this year, shall we?

First off, big thanks for all the feedback in the forums. We’ve been listening to all your comments - good and bad - and using it to make the game even better! We know we can’t please everyone, but we’re doing our best and your feedback really helps us as we continue to develop the game!

We know some players have experienced issues with performance so we’re working hard on optimization to get your framerate silky smooth! We’ve been working hard on optimizing meshes, reducing draw calls, culling geo, reducing shadow casters, and plenty more game dev jargon. Oh, and we’re also drinking LOTS of coffee!

We’re also working on several system updates. You want a better camera? Casey is on it. How about better encounters? Abe is designing that up for y’all. Did the combat system feel like it was missing something? Jordan and his heavy attacks might do the trick.

“Okay, that’s a lot of words Chatty McGee… but how about some actual details?”

Fine! We have a series of updates coming in the first half of 2016.

Update #3 (Coming soon!):

  • Improvements to the camera
  • Increased combat depth with the addition of heavy attacks and counters
  • New enemy attacks to reflect new player combat changes
  • Offline single player
  • Audio updates
  • Framerate improvements
  • Improvements to character meshes
  • Massively reduced shadow casters per scene
  • Reductions to environmental geometry

That’s all well and good, but you want to hear about new content, right? In the coming months, you will see 2 new campaigns released. Each campaign includes new levels, new locations, new enemies, and new “secrets” that add to the ever growing lore of RWBY.

Future Updates:

  • Campaign 2: With new levels and new enemies
  • Campaign 3: With new levels and new enemies
  • Horde Mode maps: featuring several locations
  • Loads of UI updates
  • Achievements
  • Audio updates
  • Mac release
  • Other awesome sauce we can’t get into just yet…

2016 has lots in store for RWBY: Grimm Eclipse. And many of our improvements were born from community feedback. So keep those comments a coming. We are listening!

Thanks again for your support and happy hunting!

My Cis Heterosexual Thoughts

Sex and gender are not the same.
Race and ethnicity are not the same.
Transexual and transgender are not the same.
Bisexual and bigender are not the same.
Asexual and agender are not the same.

Chromosomes do not determine your sex organs, as a matter of fact testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and androgyn all determine your sex organs and each Person has a certain amount of these hormones.

Your chromosomes do not make you male or female. They make you xy, xx, xxy, yyx, xxyy, yyxx and so on. Males, females, trans, agender, nonbinary can truly have any set of chromosomes (up to five that I personally know of).

Do not deny someone who they are, just because you don’t know things. If you don’t like it, don’t talk to, hurt, or degrade and dehumanize that person. If you truly don’t understand it, don’t be afraid to kindly ask, you’ll get a kind answer.

Just because you don’t know something doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. You denying it in your own mind doesn’t make it less valid.

These are things discovered and continually being researched by people with credentials and the proof has been out there for a long while, its just finally being accepted and researched further.

Your ignorance does not invalidate people. Gain knowledge beyond your nose. Even if you don’t accept it, now you know. That’s better than being a voluntary dumbass.

frozen outtake songs [1/6] → “we know better”
Hello little baby, you’re a princess just like me. Bet you’re thinking maybe it’s a pretty cool thing to be. But soon you’ll see that everyone expects a lot from you. They’ll say that there are things a princess should and shouldn’t do. But you and me, we, we know better. 1, 2, 3 together, clap together, snap together. You and me together, knees together, freeze together. Up or down together, princess crown together. Always be together, you and me. They say a princess is full of charm and grace. They say she always knows her place. They say a princess wears pink and frilly clothes. They say she never laughs and snorts milk out her nose. They say she’s calm, they say she’s kind. They say she never speaks her mind or freezes nanny’s big behind. But you and me, we, we know better. They say a princess is super duper sweet. She doesn’t fight; she doesn’t sweat, and you never see her eat. They say a princess doesn’t climb and scrape her knee. They say a princess wouldn’t freeze her tutor’s tea. They say she’s poised, they say she’s fair, she never mentions underwear, or longs to see the world out there. But you and me, we have big ideas of our own for the distant someday when we’re grown. When I’m queen (and I’m your right hand). You’ll get to travel throughout the land. I’ll tell them of my sister and the magic things she can do. We’ll take care of our people and they will love me and you. No one can tell us what a princess should be. As long as we’re together, you and me.

DELETED DISNEY SONGS

"We Know Better"
demo by Kristen Anderson-Lopez as Anna & Elsa
from "Frozen"

The first song written for Frozen in which Elsa is introduced
to her baby sister Anna. The two rebellious princesses then
proceed to cause mischief, doing all the things a princess
shouldn't do. This is only the first part of the song, assuming
that "We Know Better" was replaced by "Do You Want to Build
a Snowman", the song probably would have continued on to
show the sisters at different stages of their childhood.

i tell myself that this time, i won’t be let down. i won’t fill myself with hope, i won’t want things, i won’t care enough. and every time i am left standing here, empty hands and weeping heart; telling myself: not again, never again, don’t we know better than to trust.
