I start working at a new full-time job tomorrow I haven't even finished the update to my open-source oekaki applet that I was hoping to release before that I'm not good at drawing so I take forever to finish a single drawing, (20+ hours for a simple character sprite) I'd like ...

Re: What kind of world do you like for your second world?

Well, if I had to choose seriously then it would be some very advanced sci-fi utopia, like The Culture from Iain M. Banks novels. Long lifespan, pretty much anything I could want will be provided to me by god-like AIs. Sure, a fantasy world full of magic would be a lot of fun, but I'd probably not l...

Any young bishounen who says "betsu ni" with a sad look in his eyes is in immediate risk of getting glomped :D

Re: Subtitled Out of Region Video Games

The whole point of having region lock in the first place is to prevent people from importing games. Unfortunately big publishers don't like it very much when the customers have too much choice. They prefer locked markets where they can control when and at what price games are released. For example, ...

Re: What I Did Last Week (ending 2/13)

Hey guys, I haven't posted here in a while. Last weekend there was the mini-LD at ludumdare.com. Mini-LD is an informal monthly version of the ludumdare (48 hours solo game creation contest) and one possible theme was "Tetris is now a <genre other than puzzle> game!" and I wanted to try making a Tet...

Re: Madonna

So now spam could register too? Unfortunately, the captcha tests are not perfect. And even if they actually worked 100% and really required a human to solve them, there are ways around that. One clever trick is to have users solve captchas for the bot in order to get access to free porn, and if tha...

Re: What is the scene that you watch (re-play) most?

Back to the Future II : the part where Marty discovers the future version of the Hill Valley town square. Since I have seen that movie like 300 times, I sometimes watch it again when I can't sleep. So I usually watch that part and then start sleeping while listening to the rest of the movie. :D Othe...

It is said to take about 10 years (or about 10'000 hours) of continuous deliberate effort to become an expert in a certain field. But I guess you can get reasonably good in two years if you really work for it :)

Re: What's the hardest part about making a visual novel?

Pretty much everything except programming (that's my area of expertise) :) Really, I haven't started making a VN yet so I don't really know specifically. But drawing is really hard, probably the most difficult skill I keep trying to learn in terms of time and effort invested for poor results. (It ma...

Re: 3d realtime characters for a VN/adventure?

Well I like 3D. :mrgreen: As a programmer, I have written several 3D engines from scratch so I certainly like that aspect of 3D. I also like creating things in 3D, partially because I suck at drawing so that's a way for me to avoid that problem. ;) Anyway that doesn't mean I don't like 2D too. I'm g...
