2021.10.19 08:39 WaveRising Dread is not a good Metroid game
This is gonna be a little bit of a rant but whatever, I feel like this needs to be said because Dread is receiving way more praise than it deserves. The article that triggered this rant is that bs one from kotaku - read it or don't, doesn't really matter.
Dread is a good game. It's not a good metroid game. It's just a decently good game that was likely intentionally designed to be broken for speedrunning.
Dread is just about the most bland Metroid game I've ever played. It has no personality, it evolved nothing from the past installments, it's more linear than any 2d metroid game, the soundtrack is just sound effects, many boss fights are basically kids-first-bullet-hell...
... I could go on like this for a while, but the thing that actually pisses me off the most is that Samus has no personality at all, and I don't just mean that I don't see or hear or feel her emotion, it's that I don't even feel like Samus is there - as if you could replace that character with anyone and it wouldn't matter because the enjoyment from this game is derived from the mediocre gameplay and not out of any sort of mystery for the character you're playing as or the universe you're in. In Super Metroid and Fusion, a few times throughout the games, there were inner monologue going up or down elevators that connected you with what Samus was thinking at those moments. Maybe I'm the only one who feels this way but I felt like those moments were great because they gave you a repreive and let you in on what Samus was actually thinking - apparently even that was a little too much in this game because Samus need to be as stoic and robotic as possible and not have any thoughts at all.
At the end of the day, this game to me feels more like a response to the feedback of Other M than it does a conclusion to the original metroid saga. My worst fear is that this is going to become the norm and that nothing interesting is going to be seen from the Metroid universe again. Yall can continue to hype up prime 4, but other than the first one the prime games weren't all that interesting either.
Other M was not a good game, but it did something new and interesting with the story. Unfortunately, the absolutely absurd feedback about Samus being subservient to Adam / feminism / Samus having feelings / etc was so overwhelming that apparently Nintendo is just going to cave to the mob and make generic robot-samus metriod games from now on. The biggest reason people should have shit on Other M was that Nintendo outsourced it to Team Ninja because Metroid deserves better, instead most of you people focused on the most asinine part of the game to criticize and now Nintendo is giving you exactly what you wanted - a stoic heroine in a shitty story. In Dread, Samus reminds me of Rey Skywalker tbh.
how many times am I going to read about how "wow, Samus was so expressive in that scene with Kraid - I could tell just by her movements exactly what she was feeling in that moment" ... honestly, who are you people that think this way?
If I were writing a review of the gameplay alone it would go something like this:
"Metroid Dread is hollow knight without any of the things that makes that game good or interesting."
It's a real shame when the series that created the metroidvania genre can't even compete with an indie game. I have a lot of gripes about parts of the gameplay that I could rant about to, seemingly arbitrary stuff like "why do they continue to reduce the number of energy tanks you can get"? "Why can't we toggle beam options like in super?", "Why aren't there super missiles and regular missiles?", "Why aren't there optional bosses and optional weapons/items?" (I know you can technically beat the game without getting everything but 99% of people won't). The new items that we do get are maybe the most uninspired upgrades I've ever seen with the exception of flash shift which was basically copy pasted from Hollow Knight.
The worst gameplay offense is that there is virtually no exploration. You might get lost in areas that you've already been once or twice if you stop pushing forward.
TLDR: cringey terrible story with way more plot conveniences than other M had, no originality, subpar gameplay when compared to fusion or super, never expect to have an actual story about Samus because yall have Nintendo shitting themselves over giving her anything resembling a personality ever again.
Only thing its good for is speed running, change my mind.

I understand tech roles & opportunities in Luxembourg are quite low and the ones that exist prey on early grads with low pay. However does anybody know if there is scope to earn more than 250k € in total compensation in tech sector? Do banks or EU offices in Lux pay on that large scale? Yoe: 8

2021.10.19 08:39 PencilScratches Day 1: She's gone
So yeah, I got hooked one a feeling. We started from story nights reading classic Philippine literary masterpieces, watching a wide array of dumb videos over the internet, chatting about our sorrows and joys and being vulnerable to each other, and playing Genshin Impact exploring the world of Teyvat, immersing ourselves in the story, bullying Hilichurls for fun. I most certainly enjoyed the time but unfortunately we can't be together because of our religious differences. As sad as that fact is, I tried making peace with it, to at least keep her as a friend. I don't have much that I can be fully vulnerable with and she's the best I have.
I tried looking for other people. However, it just felt so wrong that I'm still hooked on a feeling with her. It feels like cheating. If not with her, then with myself. That made me sad. It also didn't help that I'm not an easy one to have a type on. They all want a chicken joy with a red flag and I guess I'm much of a dork. I'm not that spicy. Other than being rejected I got stood up on numerous times. It's terribly frustrating and tiring. Everything just piled up. I feel like that one wants me in their life at all. It's like the world is telling me I don't deserve to be happy. I wallowed in self-pity.
Of course, she noticed my recent behavior. As to how I'm not talking to her as I frequently would. Normally I needed my time but when you're blinded by emotions sometimes you tend to do the dumbest of things. I opened up. Told her about the whole thing, the predicament we're in. I guess I made her feel that I'm hurting because of her. I didn't want her to carry that guilt. I'm also thinking she might be hurt when I looked for others. She's not to blame. I guess we're just both victims of our circumstances. Getting hooked on her wouldn't be helping me either.
Last night, as much I wanted her to say she had to say good bye. "It's for the best." She told me. We're both aware no one's to blame but we're like Schopenhauer's Hedgehogs that can't hug each other in the cold and doing so would hurt. Now she's not even around. I made peace with the fact that she couldn't be my girlfriend but it's such a terrible loss that now she couldn't even be my friend. I blame myself. But I guess if this is what would give us peace then I guess she's right. It is for the best.
Exploring Teyvat won't be the same anymore. Stories will just be stories without another soul to enjoy it with. Is this the cost of freedom? Does it really have to hurt this much? We can choose people but will they choose us? What if we both chose to be happy? I don't know. I don't know what to feel anymore. I'm sorry.
"What if we just hadn't said good bye?
Would your love now have been as good as mine?
Would I still think love is impossible to find?"

2021.10.19 08:39 TheUndyingNephalim Make Particles spawn and move on landscape
| I’m currently trying to get a large crowd of animated skeletal meshes to walk using Niagara particles. The issue I’m having is finding a way to make the particles spawn on a landscape and then move along the landscape. At the moment they just phase through the hills of a landscape or hover over valleys. I’ve tried Adding gravity and collision which just causes them to fall and stop moving once they hit the ground or finish sliding down a hill. I’ve also tried exporting the landscape as a mesh and reimporting it to spawn the particles on a static mesh, but the filesize of the exported landscape is so huge that it crashes Unreal and Blender when I try to import it. |

2021.10.19 08:39 KiwiMarkH Trying to find a setting for retrying a stalled download
I'm using RSS to automate some downloads and it works very well, a new torrent will get added automatically and download and it is all good. But then there are times that a new torrent (maybe lacking seeders right at the start) will not start and show as "stalled". I might check on it and see a stalled download, I'll pause that download and then resume and away it goes - yay!
But what if I didn't check on it? Will it eventually retry? If it does retry that torrent and start up, can I change the interval that it retries stalled torrents? I've seen a torrent that has sat there stalled for 30 minutes, I think that it would be good to retry stalled torrents every couple of minutes - but I just can't find a setting for that. Does anyone know if there is a setting, what it's called and where I can find it?
