  1. This event has now started. For this week we will read the intro, chapter 1, and chapter 2. Discussion for this weeks reading will starts next Monday April 23rd.
  2. I'm glad the game seems good. Of course calling this game a 10/10 is kind of ridiculous. Not because it's a GoW game, but because no game deserves a 10/10. To say a game is a 10/10 would mean it's perfect and no matter how good a game is, it will never be perfect.
  3. Hello everyone, So I have been on a audiobook kick for a while and when I was looking for a new book to listen / read to I ran across this very interesting book called Blood Sweat and Pixels. After reading the synopsis and the first few chapters, I felt this would be a really good book to share with the PSNP community. So after getting permission from @Royalredpanda I'm bringing back the We Read event. The book we will be reading for this event will be Blood Sweat and Pixels: The Triumphant, Turbulent Stories Behind How Video Games Are Made by Jason Schreier. Here's a blurb about the novel: Developing video games—hero's journey or fool's errand? The creative and technical logistics that go into building today's hottest games can be more harrowing and complex than the games themselves, often seeming like an endless maze or a bottomless abyss. In Blood, Sweat, and Pixels, Jason Schreier takes readers on a fascinating odyssey behind the scenes of video game development, where the creator may be a team of 600 overworked underdogs or a solitary geek genius. Exploring the artistic challenges, technical impossibilities, marketplace demands, and Donkey Kong-sized monkey wrenches thrown into the works by corporate, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels reveals how bringing any game to completion is more than Sisyphean—it's nothing short of miraculous. Taking some of the most popular, bestselling recent games, Schreier immerses readers in the hellfire of the development process, whether it's RPG studio Bioware's challenge to beat an impossible schedule and overcome countless technical nightmares to build Dragon Age: Inquisition; indie developer Eric Barone's single-handed efforts to grow country-life RPG Stardew Valley from one man's vision into a multi-million-dollar franchise; or Bungie spinning out from their corporate overlords at Microsoft to create Destiny, a brand new universe that they hoped would become as iconic as Star Wars and Lord of the Rings—even as it nearly ripped their studio apart. Documenting the round-the-clock crunches, buggy-eyed burnout, and last-minute saves, Blood, Sweat, and Pixels is a journey through development hell—and ultimately a tribute to the dedicated diehards and unsung heroes who scale mountains of obstacles in their quests to create the best games imaginable. To give people the time they need to buy / “find” the book or audiobook this event will start April 16th 2018. (Time zone doesn't really matter in this case.) Since the book is on the shorter side, the reading schedule will be two chapters a week. (If you're using the audio-book each chapter is around 45 minutes.) READING SCHEDULE: Intro + Chapter 1(Pillars of Eternity) and Chapter 2 (Uncharted 4): Discussion starts April 23rd Chapter 3(Stardew Valley) and Chapter 4(Diablo 3): Discussion starts April 30th Chapter 5(Halo Wars) and Chapter 6 (Dragon Age Inquisition): Discussion starts May 7th Chapter 7(Shovel Knight) and Chapter 8 (Destiny): Discussion starts May 14th Chapter 9(The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt) and Chapter 10 (Star Wars 1313) + Epilogue: Discussion starts May 21th
  4. Around 1 day or so left to ask questions.
  5. That's a shame, for all the differences we had about how PP should be run, it's sad to see such a active admin leave.
  6. Spin offs count for PPs. How that are handled is up to the admin of whichever PP. For this PP the spin offs (METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE and Metal Gear Survive) count for the plat rank.
  7. Everyone up to nabinha has been added. Metal Gear Survive has been added to the required games. With this change, all Naked ranked participants have been dropped to Venom rank. @A-Brawl3r @Predatorobergott @PliskinCobra @craigm1987 @Starlove- @Fox-Hand-89 @Ptirle If you wish to regain Naked rank you must plat Metal Gear Survive. Have fun with that.
  8. Added. How did you like each game? Which was was your favorite out of the 3? How you though if playing the other Housemarque games?

  10. Akira tends to get lumped in with 90s anime because it came out in the US on December 25, 1989. Also it's a movie so it has to be looked at in a different way when compared to T.V anime from back then, but that a whole other topic of discussion. I would like to ask have you looked for the more mature anime that gets released? Because all the anime you have listed have been anime for kids or teens. Like TV shows and movies many different anime are made for the many different Target Audience. Pokemon is and always has been for kids, quite a few of the people who grew up with pokemon are upset at the show did not grow up with them in terms of story and characters (After 20 years of weekly episodes Ash/Satoshi the main character is still 10 years old even though he has been to and walk through all seven regions of the pokemon world more or less on foot.) Inuyasha and Dragon Ball Z are part of the Shōnen genre which is made for teens. I have no idea what kind of stories/ plots you like, but there is a chance that there has been a anime released since you stopped watching anime that you could like. Anime is just like TV shows and movies, it is just a medium to tell story, if you look for the type of stories you like you're probably find it anime you'll enjoy.
  11. I get where you are coming from, but that not really accurate. The anime you listed are 90s anime, that one in the pic is 00's anime, 10's anime has evolved beyond a lot of the problems of 00's anime. There are alot of pics I could show for 10's anime but this will do. (also i'm pretty sure that's a pic from the Akira manga not the the movie)
  12. @Parker I'm guessing you didn't see my first mention, but can this thread be moved to the Member Interviews section of the forum?
