    Fire Emblem: Three Houses

    War is coming to the continent of Fódlan. Here, order is maintained by the Church of Seiros, which hosts the prestigious Officer's Academy within its headquarters. You are invited to teach one of its three mighty houses, each comprised of students brimming with personality and represented by a royal from one of three territories. As their professor, you must lead your students in their academic lives and in turn-based, tactical RPG battles wrought with strategic, new twists to overcome. Which house, and which path, will you choose? The game features the refined gameplay the Fire Emblem franchise is known for. Command a party of warriors to move and fight on a grid-based battlefield and, for the first time in the series history, assign battalions of troops to support individual units in battle. As a professor, you are responsible for teaching your students and improving their skills in their academic lives and in battle. These may be school assignments, but the stakes are very real. Your students' lives depend on your leadership. It's up to you to guide each of them, so that they may wield a variety of weapons, master the study of magic, and acquire special skills such as horsemanship. But there's more to being a professor than commanding armies. Freely roam Garreg Mach Monastery and the academy within it, while interacting with talented students to build relationships and gather intel. After meeting one enigmatic girl named Sothis...you'll come to realize that she appears only within your mind. What other mysteries await?

  12. We've got this cute "cat gun" on our TTT server! It's called the M1A0 (which I think is hilarious). It does 5 damage a shot and is automatic, so it's a pretty good weapon.

    Heavyshelf Snap!

    Very good. He is very interesting. He is a good size in the frame and he has a very friendly expression on his face, but he seems beat up and looks a little slimy. Score: 2350

    Heavyshelf Snap!

    Hello please rate this fishy fellow I found in Hunt: Showdown. He is not in distress he's doing OK so don't worry.
  15. Hi guys! I want you to post your pictures of cute animals you find in games and I'm going to score them! There are a few different categories I'll use to score, and they're all based off of the N64 game "Pokemon Snap". There are only two hard and fast rules here: It has to be an animal (no people or objects) and no editing the picture! No crops, zooms, or otherwise edited screenshots. Size - The larger the animal in the frame, the higher your score will be. Don't make it go out of the screen, that will reduce your score. Action - Try not to take a snap of an animal doing nothing, make it interesting! Points will not be removed for a photo of an in-game photo of an animal (for example a screenshot of a photo of a dog framed on a desk). Position - Bonus points if the cutie is in the center of the frame. Multiple cuties - If you get more than one cutie in the picture, your score increases! Overall cuteness - The cuter the photo of the animal, the higher the score. Have fun, and happy snapping!
  16. When it comes to video games, I'm not necessarily what one would consider "good"-- quite frankly, I don't care to be. When I play games, I generally just do it to have a good time with my friends or to pass the time; I don't care how my performance stacks up against others. There is, however, one game that has been different for me in that regard. Bethesda's "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" changed my perspective on games during my first play through, and even now, as I'm on my third play through (this time doing a sort of dual-run with my significant other) I realize how much I love this game and the way it allows me to be good. I'm not here to tell you much about the story, as I've seen so many people and reviewers talk about how good/bad the story is. If you're like me, you don't really care so much about the story. While I think it's good enough to keep you interested and entertained, I don't think that it's the biggest selling point of Skyrim. What keeps me so enthralled and wanting to come back for more is the world and how easy it is. The world is, in my opinion, absolutely beautiful. Yes, there are many other games that have been produced in the last few years that are objectively better in visual quality and sheer size, but as far as being the perfect size and "explorability" Skyrim is king. The Skyrim map is just the right size, as it's not so big that traveling to places you haven't discovered (or even traveling hold to hold) is tedious. Also, in order to keep it exciting, the enemies you meet (wolves, trolls, giants, bandits, etc.) along the way challenge your ability to snap out of whatever staring-state you're in and go directly to combat. I personally also really like the ability to "cheat the map". I like being able to slide down vertical rock faces by holding back on the controller and jump up near vertical cliffs by jumping and zig-zagging your way up. I know that it's technically a flaw, but I can be lazy and sometimes those mountain ridges are ALWAYS in the way of where I want to go (I mean, who wants to walk all the way around the mountain when going from Whiterun to Ivarstead?). Going off of the ability to cheat the map, I like how easy Skyrim can be. With the third play through that I'm working on, I use one-handed weapons (swords) and my partner uses two-handed weapons (battle-axes) and both of us can insta-kill low level enemies (like draugr and bandits) despite basically having just started. It bothers him, but I honestly love it. I, as a casual, don't want to have to die a thousand times just to complete a quest. There are so many possible quests that it's not like the game needs you to struggle for a while on any one particular quest. On my previous play throughs I've been able to destroy giants and trolls by level 35, which I feel indicates a pretty easy timeline considering how difficult those guys are to defeat early game. I can see where someone who really wants a game to be challenging may find Skyrim too easy. For me, and others like me, it's perfect. If you want a game where you can both play casually and absolutely wreck enemies at a low level, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim may be the game you want to try.

    Pet Pics

    Here are my cats! The calico one is Callie, and she’s an absolute sweetheart. She’s so loyal... she follows me around like a dog. The white one with the black splotches is Oreo. She’s a sweet girl but... she’s a little dumb. We love her all the same though, and she absolutely loooves getting her scritches. As I type this, she’s attacking my feet for no good reason (which is the norm in my household).

    This is Dennis... often lovingly referred to as "King Dennis" by my SO. He's a leopard gecko... we think he's a giant morph because the fat boy made us upgrade from a 10 to a 20 gallon tank when he just kept growing! For some reason, he absolutely hates his plastic horse. You can see it on its side in the background of the pics... no matter how many times I set it up, he will trample it down immediately after I walk away.

  23. When a game dies is completely relative to the game. For example, Minecraft will (most likely) never die despite being about 10 years old, but on the other hand we have popular Triple A games like COD and Battlefield, I would consider every game that is not the newest in the series to be dead and not quite worth playing (imo). Although, if your vibing a certain type of game or a specific game you should play it and not let the fact that it may be dead discourage you. For me that game is Killing Floor 2, that game is extremely dead, but and my friends still love to go back and play some games of it every once in a while.

    When is a game too old and not worth playing?

    For me "too old" is really completely visual. There's a point where games were past pixel art but not yet very good at 3d art (Morrowind, for example). In these cases, the game just looks... ugly. Besides that, though, pixel art that is basically abstract shapes is a bit too out-there for me (so a lot of games in the 80s).
