  1. Diablo is much more straight foward than path of exile. Less cluttered.
  2. Virus, or the file system itself changed some security setting.
  3. I'm watching a series of videos about abuse. The youtuber who does it is a Phd in Social sciences, but is currently shifting to the field of psychology and studying about abuse. He discusses what is abuse, emotional abuse, narcissim, victims of abuse, how to identify an abuser, etc. Lots of ppl are watching his videos and having that enlightment moment, some of them are thanking him because now they understand why their mother did what she did, or why a woman would fall in love with an abuser. The videos are all in portuguese, so unless you know the language, there are no subtitles to help.
  4. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2-_WWPT_124iN6jiym4fOw Asian Boss. I must say. I can learn more about culture and history in that channel than I would ever have learnt at school.
  5. Funny stuff. That group no longer exists. I read that those girls were forced to overwork, overtrain, wake up too early, the company even prevented parents from contacting their own daughters.
  6. I did not like this. I did enjoy this. Now I can understand some words, "SEN" is "thousand" in japanese.
  7. Just found out that the whole course of basic level of Japanese is available for free https://www.marugoto.org/en/ First test took just 30 minutes and was half "can you read these words?" and half "What would you like to eat?" in japanese. In portuguese / spanish you say object + color, but in english / jap the order is color + object.
  8. The funny thing about japanese is that many words are copied from english. But the letters A, E, I O, U have sounds much similar to portuguese. One of the things that make both english and portuguese hard for people who are native japanese speakers is that both english and portuguese have words with "TR", "TP", "S", "DR", etc. But japanse is all "TO", "TA", "DA", "DO", "KU", "WO", "WA", ... making it hard for japanese to pronounce english or portuguese.
  9. There is one thing that drives me to russian. There are numerous russian names related to mathematics. At some point in the future I'd learn it to better understand how the soviet union developed its math schools. As for japanese. I think that martial arts, anime and manga are just about everywhere.
  10. I'm learning japanese. I expect to reach intermediate level by the end of my undergraduate course. I'm not interesting in studying in JApan, but... just in case I ever need it.
  11. That angelic like being made me think in Diablo for some reason. They are surely doing a good job at promoting Vulkan. Everything looks smooth and with no hard edges anywhere. I won't be surprised if they win the best graphics award.
  12. The climbing parts were a lot like Uncharted.
  13. They are going to sell FF VII in multiple games, similar to FF XIII. They must have modelled new areas to explore, areas that were previously unseen in pre rendered backgrounds. They can even have added new side quests or modified the plot in some ways to acommodate a larger world. In the original game you visit one reactor in Midgar and just one section of the whole thing, what if the whole structure is now accessible to the player? Realtime combat imposes a new challenge. What the other chars in your party do while you are controlling one char? The AI controls them. In turn based system there is no AI to control them. Another thing that they must have changed is the random encounter system. It's really annoying to be walking and suddenly a battle takes place. That screen transition between the world and the battle is annoying. There was even a yellow materia that made the encounters less frequent. They haven't showed anything about the world map. In the old days an open world with the scale of GTA or The Witcher was impossible, but now they can and have done it with FF XV. This forces some more gameplay changes as you can't just walk out of Midgar and run to Kalm in one minute. That or they abolished the world map. Aerith's death can now have blood if they aren't censoring anything. If they are succesful with that remake, they are probably going to make more. FF8 anyone? There are some reports that Mark Cerny invested in ultra fast SSD for the PS5, claiming it to be faster than what is available for PCs. Sounds like they included a very large DDR cache, much larger than what is available in current SSDs.
