Yoko Taro’s Explanation About Making The World View of His Games

Where does the ideas of World View came from?

Yoko: My ideas is not important, the important thing is money. This is due to the fact that the content making and the staffs composition can be decided based on the budget. With this we can putting ideas on it and concentrating on working toward realization at the same time.

The idea of becoming a game creator was sprouts when I’m at Junior Highschool. But the understanding about making a game world was not advanced there. It was until I read a novel called “Hybrid Child” in my college day. This novel showed me a “new vision”, and it inspired me to enter the gaming industry.

To give a “New Something” to the players is the main goal of making the World View and story. People who played my game, read the novels, and watched the stage plays usually can feel something in their heart that can’t simply be expressed by the word “I was impressed” or “I’m gonna cry”. It’s because the game was aimed for “those who embrace various impressions and rich imaginations”.

What is the perfect World View for you?

Yoko: I emphasize “the emotion” as my goal, so I am trying not to put in what I do not need as much as possible. The world view includes social systems and rules, but for example, in a story depicting the love between men and women, there is no need to create politics and geographic background in detail. You should prepare more on the necessary things. 

Talking about making it on tight deadlines, some people said that the professionals keep on working on schedule. I do not quite understand myself, but time goes by while I am doing it considering the deadlines were far too much.

What is the thing to cherish for you as a creator?

Yoko:  Do not put things you don’t need too much. For example, when I make a map for Drakengard and NieR, I only named the places as simple as possible such as  “Forest Country” and “Sea Country”. I did it to lower the learning cost of the player in memorizing the places’ name. You can also use the budget to make something more useful. 

It is important to do what you want to do, but to not do things you do not want to do is also important. For that purpose I preached the importance of “keep insisting on what I think is disgusting to the surroundings”.

In a meeting with PokeLab, I said that “I will not write the scenario of SINOALICE”, because I’m not familiar with mobile game development yet. After some discussion I agree to make it as a poem. Because if it is a short poem, it does not hinder the gameplay even if you skip them.

PokeLab also actually proposed SINOALICE’s UI to feel bright similar to Final Fantasy. But I do not like high saturation on user interface (UI), so I made a request to make SINOALICE feel darker. However, at the development, the game was not conveyed to the player with such a color. We needed to change the UI color, so it became as the released SINOALICE’s UI.

It is difficult to accomplish big things, but it is good to quickly achieve a sense of accomplishment by correcting parts that I think is undesirable.

Anxious - Clint Barton - Soulmate AU

I really don’t like how this turned out because for what I wanted it to be like I’d have needed about 1000 more words. Hope it’s still a nice read.

Prompt: none, I just wanted to write Clint and the Soulmate AU hit me when I wasn’t watching my back.

I blame Cover You In Oil from @star-trekkin-across-theuniverse as inspiration

“Can I sit with you?”

Clint turns around, looking down from a supporting beam he had been perched on, to see Vision looking up at him.

“I guess you can,” he calls back and Vision all but floats up to him, not sitting but standing on the small surface the beam offers.

We see movies in which people are represented as being in love who never talk with one another, who fall into bed without ever discussing their bodies, their sexual needs, their likes and dislikes. Indeed, the message received from the mass media is that knowledge makes love less compelling; that it is ignorance that gives love its erotic and transgressive edge. These messages are often brought to us by profiteering producers who have no clue about the art of loving, who substitute their mystified visions because they do not really know how to genuinely portray loving interaction.

d&d disability mechanics

so im disabled, and i have a disabled d&d character. i didnt like not having an in-game mechanic to express my character’s disability in more than words, so i decided to make some and then ended up making others.

a lot of these were made while consulting someone who has the disability or from my own firsthand experience, but some aren’t. if you want to critique some of my choices, message me! i’ll be able to either edit the ruleset or explain my reasoning, and i want it to be the best it can be.

note: a lot of the save DCs are left vague in this so you and your DM can determine how difficult they are to meet.

this is under a cut because it’s really long and so i can update it. if you want to see something added, message me!

Doctor Who Moves Into the Future with Jodie Whittaker

The BBC announced today that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the next Doctor, the first woman to ever play the role!

As I write this I’m literally crying and shaking. I’m beyond happy – I’m ecstatic.

This is an exciting and very welcome move by Chris Chibnall and the BBC. Jodie Whittaker is an incredibly talented actor who previously stared in Black Mirror and Broadchurch. I know she’ll bring a new and fresh vision to the role. And it is incredibly encouraging that Chibnall and the BBC took this step to reinvigorate the character and the show. They’ve given us a peek at their new, exciting vision of what Doctor Who can be, and I’m so here for it. Each regeneration has arrived with a celebration of the show’s ability to grow and change. This time, it rings a little more true.

We also cannot overlook what an important moment this is for all the women and young girls who watch and adore Doctor Who. Young girls will finally get to see themselves as the hero of the story, an all too rare moment when most movies and TV shows – especially in science fiction – star men. Even young boys will benefit from being able to look up to a woman as their role model.

I have been hoping and arguing and fighting for this change for years, and I’m just so unbelievably happy that it’s finally happened. I’m so happy that Chibnall and the BBC were willing to take this leap. I’m so happy that I’ll get to see Jodie Whittaker step out of those TARDIS doors. And I’m so happy for all the girls who will get to see her take the TARDIS controls and take us on new and exciting adventures.

So let’s get out there and celebrate. Let’s show the world how thrilled the fandom really is. And let’s get ready to fight the trolls with everything we have to defend Jodie. This is our moment, and we’re going to enjoy it to the fullest!

  • what she means: during 'man up' from the book of mormon 2011, elder price sings "heavenly father why do you let bad things happen, more to the point, why do you let bad things happen to me? i'm sure you don't think i'm a flake because you clearly made a mistake!" and immediately the elders pop up singing 'turn it off', a song about bottling up the feelings that were not okay for a mormon to feel, a song starred by elder mckinley, a man that confesses to have 'gay thoughts' since he was in fifth grade but claims they have passed now, at the end of the musical, mckinley decides to finally 'turn his feelings on' and beat his internalised homophobia after a new vision of religion, but most importantly, why did they choose to reference 'turn it off' when kevin price is convinced god made a mistake with him? is he suggesting there are something Wrong with him apart from leaving his companion alone? maybe not, but then why elder mckinley has a place in price's 'spooky mormon hell dream', a scene that represents all the sins price has committed through the years? does thi-

Disney Channel could not have done that any better tonight! History has been made today and tomorrow is to a new future where children can grow up in a world where they shouldn’t be ashamed of who they like ✌🏻🌈

Now children growing up like Cyrus will not feel alone anymore! I am happy to say that if Disney can teach children these values and importance of respect and equality of love for everyone that those with hate in their hearts can too. Today marked a new vision of love and equality in television and in children’s lives everywhere.

Wish I had something like this growing up !

Just amazing and beautiful…
