    Kinda got a weather mix-up over here in southern Blighty at the moment. One day it's sunny and nice, and the next is a chilly ten Celsius. Heard that the Scots have it worse.
    Also, hey long time no see.

    Yeah, it's kind of a fandom-specific niche. That said, little Becca here is gonna grow up to be a Deadpool-level fourth wall breaker. Occassionally, she'll even screw around with YOUR OCs.

    It's been a while since I posted some good art.
    So, behold the power OF MY ULTIMATE MASTERPIECE!
    Okay, maybe not "ultimate", but I do take pride in this.

    'Kay, guys. I've been a KH fan for about five years (as of the last edit here) and I've researched a LOT about the series through fansites and videos. You can trust me with answering any questions you have about the series' convoluted story. For starters, here is the chronology.
    -Kingdom Hearts: Unchained χ/Back Cover (occurs centuries prior to the original Kingdom Hearts, the former is a storybook-like interpretation and the latter acts somewhat like a prologue as well)
    -Kingdom Hearts: Union X (takes place immediately after Unchained χ)
    -Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep (takes place ten years before the original Kingdom Hearts)
    -Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep–A fragmentary passage (flashback events told take begin some time after Birth by Sleep and exist parallel to the original Kingdom Hearts)
    -The original Kingdom Hearts
    -Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (continues from directly after the original Kingdom Hearts, exists parallel to 358/2 Days)
    -Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days (begins during the final act of the original Kingdom Hearts and ends roughly a year afterwards)
    -Kingdom Hearts II (takes place a year after the original Kingdom Hearts, continues from directly after 358/2 Days ended)
    -Kingdom Hearts re:coded (takes place a year after Kingdom Hearts II)
    -Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance (takes place very soon after re:coded)
    -Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep–A fragmentary passage (non-flashback scenes take place immediately after Dream Drop Distance)
    -Kingdom Hearts III (NOT YET RELEASED) (takes place immediately after the non-flashback scenes in 0.2: Birth by Sleep–A Fragmentary Passage)
    Ask me any questions you have and I'll gladly try to answer them.

    Hey, guys. Please read below. Need a bit of help.

    The (up-to-date) iPad Pro that I use seems to have an issue, and I can't play mobile YouTube videos in other apps or tabs.

    Typically, if I was playing a video in one tab and I went into another, the sound would keep playing automatically. If I left the Safari app, it would stop playing, but by swiping up and pressing the "play" button on the Control Center, it would play in other apps fine.

    However, it somehow stopped working. Every time I leave the tab that the video was playing in, it stops playing the sound, and while the title of the video is in the Control Center, when I try playing it it resets immediately and I have to go all the way back to the original tab again.

    However, I noticed that the AirPlay function on my iPad has spontaneously turned on. I attempted to turn it off by going to the proper area in my Control Center as said by several guides, but it seems to be searching for or picking up one of two Apple TVs that are apparently nearby, so I can't find the "off" button there.

    Can any of you please help me with this situation? Thank you.

    Night in the Woods
    This seems to be the next popular indie game, so as such, obligatory topic is obligatory.
    I played it through once, enjoyed it. Loved the characters, loved the style, and the story was touching, heartwarming and suspenseful all at once.
    Gameplay-wise it was also fun, but the platforming elements could've used a bit more tuning in my opinion.
    Night in the Woods is available on PC and PS4. It tells the story of Mae, a college dropout coming back to her hometown, but home isn't exactly what it used to be.
    Post your thoughts below.

  11. BlurryDawgo added a post in a topic The Final Fantasy Discussion   

    Is it okay for me to say that Final Fantasy XV actually kinda did a decent job of repairing the series' reputation? After all, it's gotten some of the best reviews of a major FF game in a while, created a relatively active fanbase of its own, won multiple awards, and it sold five million copies overnight. Eat your heart out, Lightning.
    Personally, I've had a really good time with FFXV. Even if the overarching story isn't entirely coherent (yet still understandable), it gives me enough motiviation to keep going ahead. As for the actual writing and characters, it's pretty well done and enjoyable. I adore Noctis, Prompto, Ignis and Gladiolus. All four of them are entertaining, funny and relatable, so much that the massive amount of party banter doesn't even annoy me. And the acting is pretty darn good, too.
    The Kingdom Hearts-esque real-time gameplay itself is rather fun—you can use a variety of moves and techniques in battle, and even if a game over is a little harder to get (by comparison, anyway), you still can face a lot of challenge. And your party members are impressive in battle, too—I was actually having a far harder time when one or two of them were out. Plus, you can set it so that when standing still in battle, time freezes unless the gauge ends. Oh, and for those who've already played this, don't tell me that you didn't spam the warp-strike ability. Camera's still buggy, but I know that I've dealt with much worse.
    As for graphics, Square did good. Practicially everything is pretty, detailed and realistic. Even flans are visually impressive. Yoko Shimomura is on music for this game, and that's definitely a plus.
    And that's all the thoughts I could think of for tonight. I'd recommend this game to anyone who loves the Final Fantasy series or just a good action-adventure/RPG game in general. Good night, and remember to buy some Cup Noodles on your next shopping trip. Thank you for reading.

    So I was able to finish 2.8. My thoughts (spoiler-free) are below.
    Dream Drop Distance:
    Virtually the same as the 3DS versionControls well and runs at 60FPS during gameplayFelt better when using the PS Vita's Remote Play feature despite the framerate dropBack Cover:
    Better organized than the previous two cutscene films despite having a similar formatThe visuals give an occasional "plastic" quality at times to characters, but are beautiful nonetheless, thanks to the Unreal Engine 4The story is only decent but the script is pretty goodThe Master of Masters is the best character of the story—Ray Chase does a spectacular voice, and nearly everything he says is so dry-witted that it becomes hilariousCompared to 358/2 Days, however, it was shorterThe acting is nothing spectacular, just on par with the rest of the series0.2: Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-:
    This playable episode acts mostly as a test/demo for Kingdom Hearts IIIThe gameplay is mostly similar to that of Kingdom Hearts II with hints of the original Birth by Sleep, with the Command Menu, the rechargeable MP Gauge and the Focus Gauge"Situation Commands" replace both the Reaction Commands and Command Styles, yet behave more like the latter; a chain of combos will eventually activate the Situation Command as either a Command Style or fourth tier "-aja" spell depending on whether the style is primarily attack- or magic-based.Enemies (and AI overall) are smarter and have more unpredictable attack patterns–mashing X to win won't work as well anymore, so use all the skills you have availableAqua has an idle animation and picks up speed as she runsThey finally fixed Mickey's face, thank godDoesn't seem to work as well on Remote Play as games like Final Fantasy XV—I noticed glitching even when there was no obstructionYou start at LV 50 but even the weakest enemies give hundreds of EXP pointsIf you actually want me to do a spoilerific story recap, just let me know.

    Kingdom Hearts
    A large amount of Sonic fans like this, so why not?
    Anyways, Kingdom Hearts III is going to release some time from now. According to what I've heard, Sora and pals Donald and Goofy are once again traveling across iconic Disney-based worlds and protecting them from the Heartless and other dwellers of darkness, while also searching for a "Key to Return Hearts" that can help them save those who have been lost to darkness or slumber.
    Meanwhile, the villainous Xehanort, who belives that an overabundance of light prevents of the universe from having an equal balance of light and darkness, strives to gather thirteen vessels of darkness to clash with seven lights and create a gateway which will lead him to the ultimate power of Kingdom Hearts, which he will use to create the cosmos in his image.
    Meanwhile still, King Mickey and Riku search for veteran Keyblade wielders to stop Xehanort and his malicious ambitions.
    Coming to the PS4 and Xbox One. I don't have either but I'm interested in buying. Actually, I got a PS4 about a year ago, so I'm equipped.
    Oh, and Big Hero 6 is in the game. You can all die happy now.
    As of now, I have:
    -Kingdom Hearts HD II.5 ReMix (PS3)
    -Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance (3DS)
    -Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prolouge (PS4)
    I'll let the discussion start before I say anything else.
    By the way...

    I'd rank what little I've seen of it higher than the other CN reboots, and by that, I mean it's still kind of substandard. I personally hoped for an action cartoon revival given the original creators were behind it.
    Oh, well. We have Justice League Action, which is miles better than most 11-minute Cartoon Network shows.

  20. BlurryDawgo added a post in a topic Sonic Universe (Comic Series)   

     Issue #92 was pretty cool, as character-driven stories in Sonic usually are, and the Chaotix's interactions with the Pirates of the Setting Dawn were great. Maybe this could beat Eggman's Dozen as the best arc post-Worlds Unite.
    But enough about that, the next issue (#93) is already out now! Go get it!

  22. BlurryDawgo added a post in a topic What do you hate about the fandom?   

    Interesting topic you got here.
    Well, for starters, I'll tell you about whatever fan-made Sonic content I don't like.
    One: I'd just like to point out that seeing soft porn or other moderate NSFW art or concepts of Sonic characters doesn't impact me as much as it used to, so long as it's in decent taste and isn't run or weird and extremely specific fetishes. (Jennifer Hernandez has an "after dark" account on Twitter and the header has a certain black hedgehog playing top fork, by the way.) The "what I don't like" part is the distasteful stuff, of course. I'm fine with anything playful as long as it has brain standards such as close-aged and mature characters and not romanticizing abuse. Very defined brain standards.
    Two: The art thieves and the crap they regurgitate. Oh, god. You know what I'm talking about. People who would rather clone the hard work of SEGA or even another artist and deface it rather than do it themselves. What we get are horrible, uncreative recolor designs and the original artist gets the short end of the stick because of the thievery. For a victim of it, try the Sonic artist E-Vay. Does she have stories to tell.
    Three: Really, anything uncreative, sloppy, boring or hateful. Sues and Stus, apathetically dark and lazy slash, bland and uncreative fan-children and self-inserts, "this character should die", you get the idea. Yes, the people who make these can be younger fans, but it's one of the reasons why I think DeviantART needs to put a tighter leash on its members due to how absurd it is. Some of these clichés can be improved and fleshed out as seen with the popular Sonamy fankid Aurora (created by the aforementioned E-Vay) and how much healthy meat is on her bones, but trying to find these exceptions are like trying to find a needle in a hay factory. As for ships, I don't want anything like what we saw in the post-Sonic Adventure era of the comics. And I hate seeing Sally and Amy fighting or demonized. SO MUCH.
    I could also say that I hate any Sonic art that is unexpressive because it doesn't visually interest me, but that's too preferenced.
    Now on to the fans themselves. The species of the obstinate and rude vocal minority include:
    Fanboys: Unhealthily giant and feckless fanboys of Sonic who are not just indifferent to anything else but will treat anything other than Sonic with aggression. Note the aggression part since there can be an excuse for fanboying as seen with Sonic fans on the autism spectrum who can't help it. Just the mean and unimproving ones are in this category.
    The opinionated: Sonic fans who are extremely defensive of their opinions and will go to any length to preserve them, e.g. aggressive and sensational Sonic Boom or Big haters who will not only waste time and energy on rants and stupid demotivation posters, but will also be mean to their fellow fans about their counter-opinions and will keep themselves in a self-filter bubble.
    Trolls: Any further description would be an insult to your intelligence.
    And that's it. Sorry if you get a bit lost–my Internet writing skills are a little out of practice.

  24. BlurryDawgo added a post in a topic ThunderBolt is Harley Quinn   

    Eggman could just paralyze her for that, it does come from the cybernetics, and it's unlikely to happen since she's probably the only person in the world who admires him unconditionally. A lot. Plus, Eggy DOES reward loyalty.
    As for your second point, yes, Thunderbolt isn't Eggman's right-hand woman. She probably fantasizes about it, though, evidenced by how she stuck her face onto a picture of Metal Sonic and Eggman. So maybe we can list her as Eggman's wannabe Harley Quinn, who wishes one day to rule by his side and torment every insubordinate non-Eggmanist pest on Mobius.

    I always figured that SCANF would've been given a cease-and-desist letter if this sort of thing would happen, but seeing you give up the comics willingly and honorably is just...awesome. I feel proud.
