    Game Development

    Any game developers here? I've been thinking of making an XCOM-like for the past few weeks. I've been working on sprites the last few days, and I'm hoping to move onto the game functionality soon. I'm thinking about starting a new blog here on AF just to log my notes about the development cycle. If there are other game devs here, what has your experience been like?
  3. Summer classes started for me yesterday. so it looks like I'll be staying busy. I used to hate taking online classes, but I think my mental state has changed over the years, I guess. COVID-19 has helped me in some ways, but definitely not in others.
  4. To be honest, I liked No Game No Life: Zero way more than the anime series. When I first watched No Game No Life, I was pretty excited for a second season, but after watching Zero, I'm fine with what the series has offered.
  5. Finished Neon Genesis Evangelion and Madoka Magicka.
  6. From what I know, it's not different from a normal person. The vast majority of people with aphantasia just live their lives normally. I've been trying to open my "mind's eye", and it's made me realize why I have trouble understanding certain concepts and reading certain books. I'm pretty good at math, but English has typically been my worst subject. Hmmm, well I don't think JRPGs are necessarily the same thing as visual novels. Visual novels are games where the players takes a role, (for the most part) but I wouldn't categorize Final Fantasy as a visual novel. On the other hand, I would consider Ace Attorney and Dangan Ronpa to be visual novels, even though they do have some gameplay aspect to them.
  7. I'm a month late, but I finally finished it. These characters are amazingly fun to watch, and I had a lot of fun finally seeing these awesome abilities and personalities come to life. I'll give the show an 8/10. Like Ohiotaku said earlier, it's lightweight in comparison to Fate/Zero or Fate/stay night. My biggest complaint about the show is that it doesn't spend enough time on the serious moments, making it constantly feel like it's in happy mode. Now for some fanboy moments. Even with my hype, I'd say this show is pretty bad for Fate newcomers. If you're new to Fate and don't know where to start, please read the original Fate/stay night visual novel. This show also doesn't make a lot of sense if you've skipped over all of the previous singularities, so you may have to read them or play the Fate/Grand Order mobile game.
  8. Most of the time, I think in concepts. I hear for other people with aphantasia, they can only think in concepts, but after talking about it with an expert, it seems like I have spacial awareness. I still can't visualize anything, but I have an understanding of what things are and how they look like. For the past few weeks, I've been trying mental exercises to help my "mind's eye", but it doesn't seem like it's going anywhere just yet.
  9. I'm going to go with Kizumonogatari and Oath Under Snow. Both of them have great takes of the main character.
  10. Ah... Yes, visual novels are boring, but they're also the source of some of the most legendary anime we've seen. Steins;Gate uses the visual novel medium in a way to diverge timelines and let the audience pick when (or when not) to act. Fate/stay night uses the routes in a way to explore the nature of its main character. Clannad also came from a visual novel, but I haven't gotten around to reading that one yet. Argh, I'm so jealous. I can't read traditional books and light novels for this very reason: I have aphantasia. I can't visualize anything in my head, so imagery in books are usually lost on me. I prefer the visual novel medium because the text does not focus on these things. But don't get me wrong; like I said, I agree that visual novels are boring. However, I do believe that they have a place as a medium.
  11. Hey everyone, I'll be helping out AwesomeDude20 from now on. Added. I also added in some anime from the Spring 2020 season of anime. If anyone has any requests, feel free to let me know.
  12. Looking forward to working with everyone.
  13. So, I think someone has been stealing my blog posts and reposting them on another website. I feel so... weird. Is there anything I can do about this? Should I do anything about this?
