Yeah I had that although it seems there are multiple issues causing it. Theres a compatibility issue with windows 7, a compatibility issue caused with some of the old graphics settings (the issue I had), and compatibility issues with some hardware.

Fortunately, I can run the game on highest (with motion blur off cause ew) with no problems after all this hassle. My brain is broken though because I'm using my switch pro controller now but previously I've used 360 controller and PS4 controller. Switch pro has A and B, and then X and Y switched compared to that so my muscle memory is all wrong and I keep sheathing my weapon instead of attacking and drawing my weapon instead of using an item. I'll get used to it though. I've also got a headache from all the troubleshooting so I feel like I need to rest instead of play. Very annoying.

Been playing via a friend's copy via family share; it runs atrociously for me normally. It gets significantly better if I use the method to bypass some of the drm they implemented in the latest patch though.

https://steamcommunity.com/app/582010/discussions/0/1737760710132216095/

The fact that this works is absolutely hilarious to me. In fact, if I accidentally close the confirmation window, I tend to outright freeze for 3-5 seconds. The constant fps gains are super noticeable.

Damn, I really haven't been keeping up with anime news. I had no idea that Darwin's Game got an anime.

It's one of my favorite manga. Anyone watching?

I'm assuming that pop-up ends the anti-cheat garbage they're running, because of course Capcom would tank the CPU for anti-cheat, because if nothing else can use the CPU, then no cheat programs can run.

It just has the side effect of not letting the game run, either.

Yeah, it's just the fact that it's so fucking easy to bypass the anti-cheat. What's the point of crippling drm when it's so easy to bypass? Besides, within a few hours of release before this was known, people had already made a bypass patch intended for cheating that had the side effect of making the game run better.

Watch them "fix" this quickly but take months to "fix" CPU issues (aka: rollback newly implemented denuvo features).

Might as well, if you aren't put off by it. Everything gets implied after it fades to black in the censored version too, so there's not that much difference except the existence of the CGs, and some altered character models.

I actually reuploaded it a day or two ago cuz the original link went down: https://mega.nz/#!coxziazJ!x-KbYr2LyElOjevLR9jxY9-FBQEk-GjzgPPWSEiKHts

Make sure you install it before you actually begin playing. There was an issue involving the scenario chart around chapter 7 of rain's route if you patched mid-way through. You should be able to tell it's installed by the title screen being different.

am on episode 11 of bookworm isekai

i'm pretty sure this would have made me tear up a little bit if the solution to the main conflict wasn't so BLINDINGLY obvious, not to mention convenient for the main character's purposes. like why even introduce that tree and bring it up repeatedly around the times when the devouring flared up if not to make you suspect something

I'm guessing you mean to use a trombe to leech her excess power off and at the same time get lots of quality material for paper making. Seems like a pretty good solution, but I was thinking there'd be a possibly easier and more useful solution, of her just learning magic and just using the mana that way. The magic tools have to come from somewhere and if there's magic tools, then I feel like magic should exist too.

Yeah, there's definitely multiple solutions, but this was one that seemed to be readily accessible to her as a child. Hell she stumbled upon one and at least two more popped up in the story offscreen, and it didn't seem like it was the boys' first time dealing with trombe. I'm also fairly sure that despite her VERY short exposure, she was "cured" of the symptoms of the purge for quite a while.

She can't learn magic/create tools yet because she has no social standing or basis to be dealing with magic yet. Now that the events of episode 14 have occured and she's under the protection of a generous benefactor (the head priest), it may become a possibility pretty soon. All in all, she just needs to bide time and make it to adulthood at this point.

When did this get announced? I'm so hyped. Maybe I'll rewatch season 1 and 2. The one war anime where the message isn't "war is bad and awful and no one likes it and don't enjoy this please". Hopefully the new season has good animation quality unlike the first 2.

I mean, it's watchable. The first 15 or so episodes are probably the worst of it. S2 has way less CGI but they get pretty lazy. A lot of scenes in battles are just still images being panned and shaken slightly with battle noises. The animation is never so bad it takes away from the story for me, but like, theres a lot of badass shit in this anime that could use good animation.

Also, the first 15 episodes are basically a prequel to the actual story. I found those 15 to be fine, but the main series is about the main guy working his way up the army to become the greatest general. Stealing clever or impressive victories and suffering tragic defeats. It's a really enjoyable story and as of the end of S2, theres still a ton left to go.

And in case you are interested it's based off a true story but the main character didn't exist in real life (and many events happen differently). The king/emporer guy did exist and was the first to unite china. He also killed himself by using fireworks to try to launch himself to the moon to gain immortality supposedly but that was when he was much older.

Lately I kind of feel like anime can't hold my interest as well as manga can, even for the same subject matter. Not really sure why. But I feel like I could keep going on any manga I'm reading but can just get through one episode of a show at a time.

watched like 60 episodes of SAO over the past few days (2 -> ordinal scale -> all alicization)

alicization's good but i wish reki would stop with the super objectively morally wrong villains. at least the current villain isnt a rapist, but he is a soul devourer, which i'm not sure is any better? i was just hoping he'd just be a competent analytical commander instead of "i murdered at the age of 5 because i'm a psychopath"

i'm now watching goblin slayer and it's great

I really should stop watching reviews for Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore.

It sucks because it has just enough new things that really interest me to want to get it again too.

Indeed. Kabaya was just a mystery in all of his early stuff except for his one strong desire, and it feels like retroactively he was written to be sympathetic.

Was reading up on all the changes 4Kids made to Yu-Gi-Oh, and it was even bigger than I thought. I knew they changed some cases from dying to going to the Shadow Realm, but I didn't realize the entire concept of the Shadow Realm was totally made up by 4Kids.

They also cut out the one scene where Yugi's mom pops up, which irks me for some reason.

can have multiple: knight (swords and greatswords are great), monk (huge hp)
absolutely have at least one: white mage (two isn't a bad idea), time mage
have two or three characters with one of these for antiair: uhlan, monk, machinist, archer
meh but one's ok: foebreaker, archer, uhlan

Characters have very slightly different license boards for the same jobs and some have access to more stuff with certain summons/quickenings. Like I remember my bushi/monk vaan somehow gained access to curaja on one of those trees via summons. Summons can seriously open up some windows, but you can only assign each summon to one character.

Also, job combinations can give access to more stuff. Like some boards will have, for example, heavy armor 5-10 in a bunch of nodes not connected to the rest of the license board. If you get any of heavy armor 5 through 10 on one board, it automatically fills out that section on the other board- allowing you to get all of heavy armor 5 through 10 as they're connected.

That said you don't have to preplan that much imo. Just keep this stuff in mind and go for opportunities as they appear. Spreading out job choices is a very good idea because chances are you'll run across rare drops of different weapon types. It'd suck to get a really good ninja sword and not be able to use it, right? I basically rotated my characters based on who got lucky weapon drops.

Like, even worse than Bleach's ending bad.

Bad.

Edit: FULL DISCLOSURE, I didn't even read all the way through to the end. I stopped at around 2 arcs before the end because it was already apparent that the series was in an inescapable nosedive.

I just skimmed the responses on the manga subreddit and the overwhelming response was unanimous. It was bad.

Been watching my hero lately and honestly not enjoying it. The pacing of this last arc was soooo fuckin slow. Every 3 seconds is a flash back. The villain got like 5 flash backs, and every side character got like 3. It started to feel like dbz where 4 episodes happen just so 30 seconds of fighting can progress. The actual combat animation was really cool but after being blue balled over and over by flash backs it's hard to keep the hype up.

It also has the other consequence of encouraging me to think more about the show which is not something that is in the shows favor. Why don't good guys carry guns? Why is chisaki's plan incredibly stupid? Why aren't they willing to use the girl as a power boost for deku in the future as long as eraser head is there? Why would the villains be moved to a hospital before the area has been secured and the league of villains has been made sure not to be following? Why the fuck did they not search chisaki and take the fucking bullets off of him? Like seriously thats downright inexcusable.

Why nighteye as a character? Seriously "oh the universe evens out whatever blah blah blah". No, you literally reversed the flow of events and outcomes almost every single time you used your powers. The future where you don't find the hideout entrance, the future where deku whoops yo ass, the future where he decides to punch someone in the face when their future didn't show that. Like, no, thats just wrong. It's literally impossible for it to work how he says.

Why a lot of things? I get it, it's a shonen, turn your brain off and look at the bright flashing colors. I can't do that when they keep slowing down the pace and asking me to think though, This arc should have been half as many episodes or been written better.

Sorry for the rant but my normie friends are all hyped and love this show and keep asking me to watch every week and it's just pissing me off.

Been playing MHW:iceborne on PC lately. It's fun but ultimately still has the same issues as base world that really limit their design. Namely that healing is so infinite and quick that monsters pretty much have to oneshot/one combo you or they might as well have done nothing. I call it the neir:A problem cause automata had that problem very badly.
