> So what's RWBY and what's its history with LGBT rep?
RWBY is a web show made by Rooster Teeth that focuses on four girls with big weapons who fight monsters. Originally advertised off the hype-factor of showrunner and lead animator Monty Oum, the series has gradually progressed from a garage project with a shoestring budget to Rooster Teeth's flagship show, elevating the company and being sort of a big deal. It's a very contentious show that depending on who you ask is the biggest deal for pop culture since the invention of the flip book, the worst thing since the Hindenberg exploded... or just an overall 6/10 show with good moments alongside bad ones that's just good enough to not drop but frustrating enough that you wish you could. To quote the HBomberguy review of it, "I want to just call RWBY bad and move on with my life, but it's not that simple."
I think for anime fans, nothing sums up the general reaction I see to RWBY more than the quote "It's Sword Art Online if... keep reading on reddit ➡
Today I bring you my thoughts on Hatoful Boyfriend and would love to hear others' as well on their general perception of the game before, during, or after playing it. This is going to be a high spoiler discussion, as I've tagged it as such, so if you haven't finished, beware! Also, I haven't yet played Holiday Star, so anything from that game, please mark with spoiler tags. Thank you, and I look forward to your thoughts!
Alrighty, so, to preface, I feel it would do justice to myself to say that I'm still an otome newbie. I haven't even been in the genre for a year, so older titles like this aren't something I've put a lot of consideration into. I did, however, buy the game when it was on sale (and it is a lot) earlier this year, but we're talking 6 or more months ago. "Haha, a game about dating birds! My friends are going to have a good laugh with this. Oh, it has pretty good reviews, maybe I can toss a few bucks at it." - My initial thoughts. And I wasn't wrong, it was hilarious, and... keep reading on reddit ➡
I realised that when I was just flying Ikaros over Greece yesterday.
It's basically a new game genre. I bet if you showed it to someone who's no idea what AC is, they would be impressed enough with just hovering over the ancient world. It's quite realistic, after all!
I personally would love large scale bosses in the game, but I want to hear both sides of the argument. Why or why not? Do you have any other ideas for potential bosses?
I keep coming back to this idea - I want to make a game about flying as a bird where you use the joysticks and triggers to control your wings. I've built out the basic flight gameplay, but I'm stuck on what to do with it. Flight is fun, but feels off without some sort of goal... Any ideas for goals/additional mechanics?
The best I've got so far is that you have to migrate to avoid an encroaching winter, so you're constantly having to fly "south" but that isn't much.
Taking a nod from survival games, maybe you need to keep up a hunger meter by hunting and you lose more hunger by flapping excessively?
Or maybe something more arcadey?
Estimated year of release: 2004
Graphics/art style: 3D Bright Colors, Birds Eye View
Notable gameplay mechanics: You Deliver milk that shakes in bottles as well as other items (not sure what things) and throw them at houses. Also you collect wrenches that repair your vehicle on the way floating in the road
Other details: The Driving truck was green with a brown fence around the bed holding the milk (which shakes, in visible bottles).
I saw a trailer earlier this year for some kind of adventure game featuring a young or teenage girl. I'm not sure what platform it was on, but I'm pretty sure it either hasn't been released yet or it came out this year. It had simple, angular, almost SVG looking graphics. I can't remember a lot about it but one scene was in a forest where she was talking to a giant bird (like a 20' tall eagle). The bird had vertical gaps that matched up with the gaps in the trees behind him.

I'm making a level for my favorite shooter game and I need to add some ambient sound to it. Sounds that you'd hear in most nature settings are obviously our feathered friends, the birds. However, I don't know much about them so I was hoping people here could give me a few common birds that would fit my setting. I can then download some clips of those birds' songs and add them to my level.
The entire level is set in a snowy alpine forest in the mountains. The season doesn't really matter since it's not explicitly mentioned in the level.
There's three parts: one is set during the late afternoon, around 3-4 PM
One is set at dusk
One is set during the night.
Could you give me the names of a few birds I could find in that setting and those times of the day? I suppose owls would fit for the night, I added some crows too since I often hear them during winter here in the forests in the late afternoon and I even added a few woodpeckers. But I would love to add a bit more... keep reading on reddit ➡
Saturday marked the 67th time in LeBron James career he led his team in points, rebounds and assists in a playoff game, including ties.
That is by far the most in the NBA since 1951. Larry Bird and Tim Duncan have the next most with... 21. h/t @EliasSports
Years back I used to enjoy RDRedemption on Xbox for a relaxing Sunday morning stroll through the country. I barely scraped into the actual narrative story (I think I got past the long prologue). But I really really enjoyed the ambiance and menial tasks, riding round, catching bad guys, the odd shoot out and most importantly the hunting/skinning part.
Is RDO a game which will instil this kind of nostalgia I have for the previous game?
I'm not interested in the cosmetics, nor the microtransactions, nor for that matter a long and drawn out story.
>He's one of the toughest players that I've ever seen in this league, and that goes back 35 or 36 years. He is a great young player that's getting better each year. He's rookie of the year last year, this year he's up for most improved. I'd like to know if that's ever happened before. I expect that he'll come back next year even better with something new in his game. The same way that Bird and Magic and Jordan, all those great players did every summer. The summer's a little different. Now it's going to be a fall and whenever we reconvene as a league again. But he has an irrepressible enthusiasm for the game, for his teammates, and for winning. Today it was hard getting him out of the game. Second half we didn't do it until the very end. We're so fortunate to have him and now we've got to get our roster completely healthy, and keep working to get the right players around him."
I am a season ticket holder. Had almost first pick each time to grab tickets. This game was perfect timing. Thanksgiving dinner than off to a prime time game with no work to go to the next morning.
I know it's a first world problem, but I am pissed.
Damn Dirty Birds...
