My hand slipped—-but it was torn with what it wanted so it did two designs for him. NieR Automata has taken over my life and I weep for this game. I just had too design a thing for Prompto, but I definitely had a hard time trying to come up with something for his YorHa outfit more than the Resistance one! I like both though, y’all gotta stop me from creating AU’s for this man. It’s not healthy LOL 

*Obligatory pew*

***minor spoilers***

I loved Pokemon Moon so much, and Lillie was a big reason why. You could tell she was out of her element from the beginning - from her overdressed outfit, to her constant concerned/angry expression, to her secrecy about her origins - but the way she grew, opened up and took hold of her quest was just awesome, especially from a Pokemon game.

***end spoilers***

Anyways, hope you enjoy my take on her and Nebby here. I definitely spent a lot more time on this than usual since I just wasn’t happy with her pose, but c'est la vie :)

He’s a first-class guy on and off the ice. There’s four other guys on the ice and everyone’s just getting it back to him. But at the end of the day, he’s a guy that gets the job done. It’s not easy to get more than a point a game in this league and outscore all the other guys, especially where he’s come from. He wasn’t a first-rounder or your top pick that was a shoo-in for the top scorer of the league. He’s worked for every inch he’s got and he definitely put himself out there with the top guys tonight.

Hockey Coach

Requested: could you do one where you are the ice hockey coach of aaliyah and at one parctise you meet shawn?

Masterlist

~~~

You’ve loved hockey for as long as you can remember. Now that you’re eighteen and attending university, you aren’t playing in a league like you used to, but you couldn’t walk away from hockey completely. That’s why you found yourself volunteering to coach a thirteen and under girls team. The girls are all sweethearts, although some days are more difficult than others. Coaching girls has taught you so much, even though you were their age only five years ago, you feel like you’re so different now, but they definitely remind you of yourself at that age. Thirteen is a hard age so you have to definitely be sensitive when you’re dealing with them.

Hiveswap, Cherubs, Fantrolls, First Guardians, Limebloods: How Does This Concern Me?

New year, new theory! With Hiveswap hot on our heels it’s fitting that we kick 2017 off with a bang, right? Gotta get my bets in before the races start! You know what they say right? Go big or go home.

So let’s make the first theory of the year a Hiveswap plot forecast!

Let’s talk about how the fantroll we saw for 2 panels might actually tell us how Doc Scratch and cherubs factor into the plot of the game.

This is definitely a lot more interesting than the Handmaid.

Longish post warning. We’ve got some potential to discuss.

Bets (Simon)

Requested?: Yes, thanks
Warnings: None
Pairing: Simon and Reader, Rest of sidemen Platonic

This is more of a blurb than an imagine. I’ve been stuck with writers block a lot recently. So sorry it’s a bit shorter than normal.

____________________


Y/N


Being over at the sidemen house is always fun. Especially when all seven, plus the Cals, are there. There is never a dull moment.

These boys definitely know how to entertain people. I mean if you count just sitting around, playing videos games as entertainment.

I’m sitting next to Simon who is playing a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors with Harry. Simon keeps beating Harry, and every time he does he claims to be a “rock paper scissors master.”

After a few more times of watching Simon annihilate Harry at the game, I spoke up. “Come on that was so predictable.” Simon gave me an ‘are you serious’ look.

“You think it’s so easy? I’d like to see you beat me.” He offered.

“Gladly. Let’s make this a bit more interesting though, shall we?”

“A wager you say? I’m in. What do you want out of it?”

“If I win, I get to slap you as hard as I can.”

“And if I win?”

“That’s up to you.”

“How about if I win, I get to kiss you.” A smirk played at his lips and I raised my eyebrows.

“You have a deal.” I held out my hand for him to shake.

He took my hand in his and shook it. Then both of us repeated the words “Rock, paper, scissors. Then showing which one we chose.

I’ve never lost when I use rock, so that what I naturally choose. When I look to see what Simon had chosen, I see that he has chosen paper.

“Looks, like I win.” He says, smirking

“Guess so.” I say looking up at him

“Well then where is my kiss?”

I roll my eyes, and move closer to him, pressing my lips to his.

Soon the kiss became a little heated and Simon was pulling my into his lap. I didn’t mind though, as my hands were practically pulling at his hair.

When we finally pull away from each other, I can hear the sound of what could possibly be a record button. I turn to face the rest of the boys and see that they all have their phones out and recording.

“Did you all just record that kiss?” I ask a little annoyed

“Yep, and put it on our Snapchat.” Ethan says

I groan, and lean forward, unintentionally hiding my face is Simon’s neck.

“It was something that had to be recorded,” I hear JJ says “Trust me.”

“You didn’t have to put it online.” Simon says

“Oh well too late.” JJ says

The rest of the night, Simon and I try to stop the boys from talking about this kiss. No luck is given though. They won’t shut up about. I think I even heard Harry say that he was jealous.

But I won’t be kissing any of them again, any time soon. Well maybe Simon again but not any of the other boys.

anonymous asked:

how Prompto react when he finds out that his fem!s/o is jealous of him to Cindy or Aranea?

Prompto is such a lover boy, he falls for every woman in the game, so I can definitely see his s/o getting jealous. I don’t see it as a bad thing, I think he mostly admires women more than anything else and develops tiny crushes on them haha! ♡

  • He’s feeling really bad about it, mostly because he never intended in hurting anyone in the process and getting you jealous is the last thing he wants because you’re the one he cares the most about.
  • Prompto is generally just fascinated about women, especially strong ones. It’s never romantic feelings because he’s not the one to fall for the first girl around, but when he’s talking about other women than you, he’s always impressed and admirative first. Of course, when he’s single, it’s a totally different thing because he do kinda fall easily for girls, but it’s usually more crushes than anything else.
  • His reaction is really gonna depend on how you approach him with your jealousy. If you’re angry, the poor boy is probably gonna feel really insecure and guilty for days. If you’re able to be more rational than emotional and talk to him about it, he’s still gonna feel guilty, but will most likely try to comfort you and assure you that you’re the most important woman in his life and that he loves you and no one else. In any case, you can expect a lot more attention in the days following your confession because he’ll want to make you feel like his princess.
  • He’s gonna be super conscious about everything he says for a while because he’s scared of hurting you again. One thing for sure, you’ll never hear about Cindy or Aranea from him for a long time. If you ever get around one of the two girls, he’s super cuddly and gives you a lot of PDA in front of them to make up for the fact that he got you hurt by giving them more attention in the past.
  • In any case, you can’t stay mad at him for too long because he feels so bad and loves you so much that you realise that you probably got scared for nothing and that you have nothing to fear.

Part one of the new sword generation is DONE! Next up is to dynamically change the color of the blade itself and not just the highlights. I think it’s looking pretty good so far. It’s definitely much better than the original system.

It’s also REALLY simple to add more blade shapes and it’s so much fun I could do it forever. Eventually I would like to implement a simple editor in game so that players can create the weapon they want. Maybe make it a special vendor or something. However that would take a lot of work and if I ever get around to do it, it will definitely be something to be added post-launch. Would you guys be interested in something like that?

Lili X Cole

I’ve been reading a lot of posts about #lilicole and #sprouseheart. Although I ship their characters on Riverdale, I don’t think they would make a good couple in real life. Before you read further, I want to be clear that I love both actors, and whatever is mentioned below is my opinion based on the way they interact on public platforms.

Here’s why:

1. Even though I love Lili, she isn’t the most articulate one in the group.Cole on the other hand  is really well spoken and well informed. That college education really did him good.

Having said that, they both have artistic inclinations, and are great at what they do.

2. Cole and his brother are video game enthusiasts(rather addicted to them). This can be exhausting to a person who isn’t into video games.

Can opposites attract? I hope so. It definitely worked out for me. 

I really hope they’re more than just friends. But if not, I have a ton of tumblr posts I can read to fantasize about them. Keep writing you guys. Love you all.

Bughead forever!

Dauntless Feedback/Pre-Alpha

I am pretty excited and supportive of Dauntless, a new Monster Hunter-like game being developed for the PC. They are showing off gameplay for the first time at PAX and I have been watching the user feedback coming from footage. There is nothing wrong with negative or constructive feedback, but I feel a lot of people who probably have legit and valuable comments may be going at it the wrong way, either they misunderstand what pre-alpha is, or how to best give feedback.

So, I decided to write this blog post about it! ^o^ BTW I am planning on writing my own FB on the pre-alpha showing, although I was not there and I think they are looking for more hands-on FB than spectator comments.

What is Pre-Alpha:
One thing that is misleading is that pre-alpha, alpha, and beta are not just brushed up versions of the same thing, they are very different. Here is a quick explanation of what pre-alpha usually means in game development, although definitions do vary by studio to a certain degree.

Pre-alpha is the long phase between the first working prototype (last stage of “pre-production”, that is, before you have a larger team of people put on the project and start really getting down to work) and the alpha state. Games can be in this phase for years since Alpha is “feature complete” (major features are fixed but usually implemented with placeholder assets as crude as texture-less boxes).

In this phase, the studio is trying to create the core mechanics defined by the game design they drafted, and this is the stage where they start to figure out what does and what does not work as they implement it. The game can change dramatically during this phase.

Pre-Alpha builds are buggy, missing tons of features that will affect the overall gameplay, and are generally not shown to the public unless a developer/publisher is looking for specific feedback on a particular feature or concept. Most of the feedback users give will be just affirming what the developers already know, but that could be a good thing if they want validation of their concerns.

Giving Feedback:
Understand that we are getting a literal glimpse of the gameplay, a slice out of a greater pie. As a direct consequence of that, sometimes our feedback will be meaningless since we do not see the whole picture. But many times it is not.

Good FB: Comments on concepts and big direction is crucial. Do you like the general size of the stage, how big the enemies are, the stages of a fight that you go through? Do you like the general concept of item usage from what you can see? What are some ideas you see hints of that you like, or really feel would be bad if fleshed out to something larger? And most importantly, why? Don’t just share negative FB but also give comments on what you like and want them to explore further.

Bad FB: Emotional outbursts or barbed impressions on assets. Remember, pre-alpha is about the core mechanics, not the assets. While it’s good to note “i like how it seems you are going in this direction with XXX, I think that what you have for YYY doesn’t work work because of [reason], please consider changing if that is what you plan to go with”. Comments like “the maps are dull” should provide a reason why. If the reason is that there should be more monsters, the developer can rest assured it will be addressed later as they create the game, but if there are other concerns they haven’t considered like “it will discourage going off to collect an item during a hunt because the action would only get further away” then maybe they will consider that if gathering during a hunt is what they were hoping players would do.

Some examples of FB I have seen and how to more constructively look at it:

  1. Weapon SFX sucks”. I agree it bothers me too, but this type of comment does not provide a reason at all. Perhaps “the cutting sounds get really repetitive and annoying”, “the weapons don’t sound/feel powerful”, “there should be a bigger difference between the sound effects for small and large attacks so that they convey damage better” etc. would be nice ways to address it. Some people are so general to say “sound design sucks” well do you mean - the monsters, effect, slayers, music, etc. WHAT don’t you like and why?
  2. “animations are shit”. Need a lot more info. Do you mean the Behemoths or Slayers? What is it that you don’t like? Do they feel like they go against normal physics? Lack inertia? For me, perhaps “more work should be put into frame delay so that the slayer attacks have more weight” or “some of the slayer attack animations need to be a bit more smooth, they feel a bit choppy”, “monsters seem to idle for too long between attacks at times” etc.
  3. “art style sucks”. There may not be much they can do as each game has an art direction and it’s human nature for it to work for some but not for others. But if there are reasons you can give they might be able to find some neat middle ground.

I see so many comments focused on the assets (effects, sounds) and not enough around the concepts. It would be interesting to see what people think about:

  • Open maps without loading
  • Usage of flares to alert fellow slayers
  • Aether gather spots around the map you can buff by using
  • Changes we see in Behemoths when they are enraged
  • Concept of using a potion to help a KO’d friend but only a small window to do it in
  • General types of attacks we are seeing on the hammer and sword
  • Overall length of hunts
  • Camera perspective/overall size and scale of the game
  • Etc.

Anyway just some ramblings from an interested gamer.

Monte d'Or: City of Miracles (Orchestral Arrangement)
Tomohito Nishiura (arranged by Jordan Knapp)
Monte d'Or: City of Miracles (Orchestral Arrangement)

Here’s an orchestral arrangement of “Monte d'Or: City of Miracles” from Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. I arranged this a couple years ago now (seems like it hasn’t been that long since Miracle Mask came out, but whatever!) because the original track is absolutely hypnotic and is definitely my favorite from that particular game. Fun fact: in game, the “Carnival Night” version of this piece is different in that it’s lowered by one half-step (it’s in G minor rather than G-sharp minor), a bit faster (140 bpm rather than 132 bpm), and contains percussion (the “City of Miracles” arrangement contains only accordions and violin). The soundfont is Finale 2011 because that’s what I was using back then–I tried upgrading the soundfont to something more authentic, but it just didn’t translate well. Maybe someday I’ll redo it? Until then, enjoy!

JRPGs 2016

There’s a lot more than I thought.

Definitely 2016 

In approximate order of bigness

Final Fantasy XV

Definitely 2016. Definitely a big deal. It’s been a long time coming. 

Persona 5

While not as big of a deal as FFXV generally speaking, within communities of people who really care about the genre, there is just as much hype for persona 5. 

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness 

If its anything like its four predecessors, it should be a great adventure.While I think some poor choices were made in the character designs - the male costumes are boring and on the other side of the spectrum Fiore has godawful chequered tits - the game should more than make up for this.  And who knows, if were lucky/unlucky we might get a SO3 level plot twist. 

Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue

A compilation of three things. The exciting part is Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep: A Fragmentary Passage. This is a short game serving as prologue and tech demo for Kingdom Hearts 3

The bulk of the product is  Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, the remaster of  Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance for the 3DS. But will they fix the infinite wall jump?

The bit people forget is Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, a set of cinematics to tell a story that very few people realise is of any importance, based on a browser/mobile game that people outside of japan have yet to play.

One disk, four terrible names, what a bargain!

Would place this higher, but I am aware of my own bias’s.

World of Final Fantasy

Also known as the adventures of FakeRoxas and Girl.

From what I’ve seen it looks very pretty and cute and like it could be fun, appealing to those who miss traditional turn based systems. But no one really asked for it. 

Valkyria Chronicles HD

Another HD remaster. Critically acclaimed tactical war based rpg. 

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir 

Another HD remake of a critically acclaimed game. This ones a 2D side-scrolling action game. 

Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna

Tailor made to appeal to fans of the super old school, while also being very pretty. However no one has really heard of it, and it will probably need a new title for the western release. 

God Eater Resurrection and God Eater 2

Popular in Japan, apparently. 

Nights of Azure 

Already released in Japan and I’ve not heard anything good about this game. I have a general rule which is that I watch the trailer and if it looks like there has been more effort put into boob jiggle than environments I pass. This failed hard. 

Maybe 2016

Tales of Beseria

While the original trailer killed my hype - Velvets design is horrible and everything is trying so hard to be dark- the recent reveals have picked up my spirit and at the end of the day it’s still a tales game.I will buy it and enjoy it and so will a great many others. Confirmed for 2016 for Japan, but no word on a western release window. 

Here is the latest trailer and my analysis

Nier Automata 

Very little is known and there has been talk of a 2016 Japanese release, but all we can know for certain is that it looks extremely cool.

Valkyria: Azure Revolution

TBH, I’m really not qualified to discuss this franchise. People are running into a gunfight with swords for some reason. Oh, and this ones real-time as opposed to turn based like the original series. 

Later

Final Fantasy VII: Remake

Do I need to say anything?

Kingdom Hearts 3

Back to sensible naming conventions. Why does Kingdom Hearts get double the number of pictures of the other games? Because its Kingdom Hearts.

Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom 

What did we do to deserve something as pure and sweet and wonderful as Ni No Kuni? We’ll never know. 

Scalebound 

Really only included for completions sake. Is it a JRPG? Its an action RPG by a Japanese developer, and looking at it in motion it does seen rather JRPGish (just look at the environments). The Characters buzzcut seems to be a deliberate subversion of tropes. But since its a Xbone exclusive, do any JRPG fans really care. There’s a fair likelihood of it being ported to PC however.

Summary

That was a very long list, wasn’t it?  And that’s not even including portable games.Even if only half of these turn out to be good it will still mean one of the best times for JRPG’s in a very long time, and I think this list stands as a wonderful testament to breadth of variety in my favourite genre. 

If I missed anything, feel free to add!                                                                

anonymous asked:

I started playing ffxv recently, partially incited by your posts, and partially my own interest. I must say, I've never thoroughly enjoyed a game more than I've enjoyed this one. I love all the main characters (Ignis being my fave) and I love the chocobos, the world, and the generally open gameplay. My chocobo is named Rudy and I love him. Tl;dr, thank you for putting some interest in mind for ffxv.

gosh, I know right? ffxv is definitely like one of the best and most fun video games I’ve ever played. it holds my interest, it’s interactive, it’s lovely. it’s just a great game. I’m so glad you like it as well!! 😀

anonymous asked:

Yet another observation of incredible attention to detail put into ffxv: Noct moves like someone with hip and/or spine problems. Personally speaking, I have a bad foot. And it throws everything off about the way I walk: my knee and hip and back and shoulders and neck are all messed up because of it. Noct moves like me and I am so damn impressed that the game devs thought to do that. (Like, seriously - I think he even has a slight curve to his spine. It's crazy)

I love believing that Noct’s weird lil’ walk cycle is entirely resultant of his spinal injury as a child. That attack by the marilith totally fucked up something in his back to put him in a wheelchair and there’s definitely still pain from it. Realizing that massage scene in Galdin Quay might have been more than just a small comedic moment messed me up.

What say you about Drowley ;)

I have a feeeeeeeeling I knew who this is ;) 

But Drowley ahhhhh the ship that wants so badly to be there – ahhhhhhhhhh. *sighs contentedly* I adore it. I’m such a snob about who I ship Dean with (really - I mean my list of actual “I legit ship this” that involves Dean and not Sam is SMALL. I write way more ships with Dean than I actually ship - I just like writing different ships tbh). 

But Drowley is one that DEFINITELY makes the cut. Crowley cares deeply for Dean, I mean that’s friggin’ canon. He doesn’t want to admit it (and he cares for both brothers, but he has this bond with Dean that is unmatched). I mean, Cas and Dean have a profound bond - Crowley and Dean really have this lovely devilish bond. They share a lot of personality traits (as much as Dean would be screaming “NO” at the top of his lungs reading this) and they compliment each other in ways that other humans/supernatural beings really can’t compliment Dean’s unique personality type. So YES. I definitely ship it.
