Information Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (Coming 2019) Discussion
Posted by: LoopyPanda - 07-17-2018, 01:26 PM - Forum: Game Shelf - Replies (2)

Note: this is a thread following publicized updates regarding the upcoming game by FromSoftware (who brought you Bloodborne and Dark Souls) and will serve as a place for people to discuss the game until its actual release, by which point this thread may or may not be closed to open a proper game discussion thread when it comes out.

Platforms: PS4, XBox One, Microsoft Windows


Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an upcoming action-adventure video game developed by FromSoftware and published by Activision. It will be directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki. Also available for preorder.

Trailer, from E3 (Official)

Playstation Blog interview with Miyazaki
Official Website (pretty bare, but I expect it to become more filled out as development continues)


Lore Teased so far:
Quote:Carve your own clever path to vengeance in an all-new adventure from developer FromSoftware, creators of Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series.

In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you are the “one-armed wolf”, a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death. Bound to protect a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, you become the target of many vicious enemies, including the dangerous Ashina clan. When the young lord is captured, nothing will stop you on a perilous quest to regain your honor, not even death itself.

Explore late 1500s Sengoku Japan, a brutal period of constant life and death conflict, as you come face to face with larger than life foes in a dark and twisted world. Unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities while you blend stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head to head combat in a bloody confrontation.


What's new (gameplay mechanics):
-Resurrection: players revive themselves immediately without returning to a checkpoint. And despite how it might sound, game director Hidetaka Miyazaki says this can make Sekiro harder than Souls, not easier.
-Supposedly, Sekiro subverts much of what Dark Souls introduced to players in terms of gameplay.
-Miyazaki: "Sekiro's difficulty was designed with the knowledge players can die and resurrect on the spot."
Quote:"There are three ways death influences Sekiro," Miyazaki tells the PS Blog. "For the gameplay purposes of keeping the flow good and being able to have this risky situation, to be able to use it creatively, and also that the story centers around the concept of resurrection.

"There’s one thing I’d like to make sure isn’t misunderstood: the resurrection system was not introduced to make the game easier. If anything, it actually can make the game harder because it allows us to push the edge of risky combat where the player can die at any moment."

Miyazaki doesn't commit to the specifics of Sekiro's resurrection system—"the system itself is not yet 100 percent final," he says—but does suggest it controls the pace of the game, and the difficulty based around it. 

"Just because you have this resurrection mechanic, it doesn’t mean the player won’t be afraid of death," he adds.
  • Right-hand weapon is limited to a Katana, left-hand weapon gains accessories as you progress.
  • Grapple mechanic to traverse vertically.
  • Arsenal of ninja tools/weapons
  • Visceral melee combat - a focus on "Posture" and "Parry" to execute finishing moves.
  • Stealth is a mechanic, and there's a persistent "cat-and-mouse" atmosphere.
  • There's a dedicated jump button.
  • The level design is interconnected, complex and vertical, with many secret ways and doors.
  • The "revive" mechanic carries an unknown penalty but can be used to fool a group of enemies into dispersing.
  • There is some sort of healing item that was used during the demo

General Info
  • Developer: FromSoftware
  • Publisher: Activision Blizzard
  • Bandai Namco are not associated with the title. The IP of Sekiro has nothing connected to Dark Souls or Bloodborne series; thus making Sekiro its own universe/narrative.
  • Single-player experience only, NO multiplayer.
  • Dark souls and Bloodborne were Western-oriented settings (predominantly Medieval/Dark Age and Gothic themed), whereas Sekiro departs from that and focuses on the 1500s Samurai period.
  • NOT AN RPG. Instead, it is an action-adventure with RPG elements unlike other fromsoft games.
  • No stats, no character levels or classes. No traditional RPG equipment or upgrades.
  • "Tenchu" is a cited influence.
Essentially, this is a game that is almost entirely unlike anything Dark Souls or Bloodborne players have dealt with in the past. It is a new experience that fans and new ones alike could easily get behind (especially if it isn't touting itself as an RPG title like DS and BB). It is unknown if Character Customization will still be present in spite of the lack of class and stats to choose from.

ETA: Polygon and Fextralife added screenshots of the game.

  Kylian Mbappe Donates Every Penny of World Cup Earnings to Charity
Posted by: ShineCero - 07-17-2018, 09:18 AM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - No Replies

Quote:The French soccer team claimed a 4-2 victory against Croatia during yesterday’s World Cup final, but one of their “wonderkid” players is winning hearts for showing his true character off the field.

19-year-old Kylian Mbappe, who is a forward player for the team, made roughly $22,500 for each of the seven games that France played in the World Cup. On top of that, he was given a $350,000 bonus for winning the tournament, which totals up to half a million in earnings.

But instead of relishing his winnings, he is donating 100% of the money to charity.

The Premiers de Cordee charity helps disabled and hospitalized children into sports. Mbappe has been supporting the charity since June 2017.

“Kylian, he’s a great person,” Sebastien Ruffin, general manager of the charity, told Le Parisien.

“When his schedule allows it, he intervenes for us with pleasure,” he added. “He has a very good [relationship] with children, he always finds the right [words] to encourage them. I sometimes even feel that [he] takes more pleasure to play with the kids than the kids themselves.”

Mbappe also showed his true colors by paying respect to his predecessors. Upon becoming the second youngest soccer player to score in a World Cup final, Brazilian soccer legend Pelé posted to Twitter saying: “If Kylian keeps equalling my records like this I may have to dust my boots off again…”

Mbappe’s humble response? “The king will always be the king.”

  EPA chief Scott Pruitt resigns amid scandals
Posted by: ShineCero - 07-05-2018, 02:27 PM - Forum: Boogaloo Donut - No Replies

Quote:Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has resigned after months of ethics controversies, citing "the unrelenting attacks" on himself and his family, which "have taken a sizable toll on all of us."

President Donald Trump first tweeted the news Thursday that Pruitt had resigned.

"I have accepted the resignation of Scott Pruitt as the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency," Trump tweeted. "Within the Agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and I will always be thankful to him for this."

Pruitt's resignation follows months during which the EPA administrator has been embroiled in one ethics controversy after the next.
It also comes two days after an exclusive CNN investigation revealed a former top aide alleged Pruitt and his staffers held regular meetings to "scrub," alter or remove controversial events from his calendar. That investigation sparked two Democratic congressman to call Thursday for the EPA inspector general to investigate whether Pruitt committed a federal crime.

Trump said on Twitter that Pruitt's recently-Senate confirmed deputy Andrew Wheeler will on Monday assume the duties of acting administrator of the EPA.

"I have no doubt that Andy will continue on with our great and lasting EPA agenda. We have made tremendous progress and the future of the EPA is very bright!" Trump tweeted.

An ethics cloud hung over Pruitt for months, as lawmakers from both parties, environmental groups and government watchdogs raised questions about his spending, housing arrangements, security team and raises for political appointees.
Pruitt's resignation letter to Trump offered regret about leaving the role, but said "unrelenting attacks" had taken a toll.

"It is extremely difficult for me to cease serving you in this role first because I count it a blessing to be serving you in any capacity, but also, because of the transformative work that is occurring," Pruitt wrote. "However, the unrelenting attacks on me personally, my family, are unprecedented and have taken a sizable toll on all of us."

He added, "My desire in service to you has always been to bless you as you make important decisions for the American people. I believe you are serving as President today because of God's providence. I believe that same providence brought me into your service. I pray as I have served you that I have blessed you and enabled you to effectively lead the American people."

Two EPA officials told CNN they found out about Pruitt's resignation from Trump's tweet and had no idea the news was coming.
Pruitt had lost the confidence of many career and political EPA appointees, but many of those eager to see him go had begun to lose hope that he would resign or be pushed out by the President.

"Still in shock to be honest," one EPA official told CNN. "Incredible that he lasted as long as he did."

All told, Pruitt left EPA having faced more than a dozen inquiries or reviews into his practices at the agency, including his first-class plane travel, a room that he rented from a lobbyist at $50 per night and the installation of a soundproof booth in his office.

A spokesman for the EPA's Office of Inspector General told CNN that ongoing or pending reviews of Pruitt will continue, even though he has resigned.

"Any ongoing or pending OIG reviews related to the Administrator and/or his team will continue—regardless of the Administrator's resignation," the spokesman said.

But at the same time, Pruitt was one of the most effective implementers of the President's agenda. Coming into office as a critic of EPA and a climate skeptic, Pruitt moved aggressively to scale back Obama-era moves on climate change, automobile pollution standards and other industrial pollutants.

As recently as June 8, Trump praised Pruitt, telling reporters on the South Lawn of the White House that the EPA administrator was "doing a great job within the walls of the EPA," and that "we're setting records."

"Outside, he's being attacked very viciously by the press. I'm not saying that he's blameless, but we'll see what happens," Trump said then, and didn't answer a reporter who asked if Trump was "tired' of Pruitt.

Pruitt was also involved in some intra-administration maneuvering this spring when he urged Trump to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions and install Pruitt as the head of the Department of Justice, according to three sources.

But as summer unfolded, the amount of pressure on Pruitt began to near its breaking point as former staffers came forward to air their concerns and accusations about the EPA chief. Former aide Kevin Chmielewski told CNN that Pruitt and his staff kept "secret" calendars and schedules to hide controversial contacts with industry representatives and The Washington Post and The New York Times revealed aspects of testimony Pruitt aides gave to Congress about the EPA administrator enlisted them for personal errands.

Turn to the right

Pruitt, an Oklahoma Republican, came to the job as one of the EPA's chief critics and was seen as someone philosophically at odds with the agency Trump tapped him to run.

While serving as Oklahoma's attorney general, Pruitt was one of the chief architects of the legal battle against Obama's climate change policies and repeatedly sued the agency. He described himself in his biography for that job as "a leading advocate against the EPA's activist agenda."

Critics of Pruitt's nomination drew on his past statements to label him as a "climate skeptic," a term for someone who denies the scientific link between human activity, climate change and associated impacts.

Along with Trump, who once said that "global warming was created by and for the Chinese," Pruitt oversaw the efforts to dismantle major climate regulations. Trump announced at the beginning of June last year that he would withdraw the US from the Paris climate accords.
Pruitt announced in October he would withdraw the Clean Power Plan, an Obama-era regulatory structure to limit greenhouse gas emissions on a state-by-state basis.

Inquiries and reviews into Pruitt's practices at EPA

Pruitt incurred a sizable number of investigations into his spending and practices at EPA, including inquiries by the House, Senate, the EPA itself and the White House. Among them were inquiries into Pruitt's travel practices, spending within the agency and use of email.

The EPA inspector general is reviewing all of Pruitt's 2017 travel, which is expected to include multiple taxpayer-funded weekend trips that Pruitt took to Oklahoma, as well as official travel to Italy and Morocco. The inspector general told Congress in a May 2018 letter that he expects the review will be completed by the end of September.

A different EPA inspector general review involves Pruitt's travel practices, suggesting that it will review Pruitt's use of his round-the-clock security detail, which travels with him even when off-duty on family vacations.

Separately, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, has asked EPA to justify Pruitt's use of first or business class seats on flights.

This spring, Gowdy said Pruitt was not forthcoming with records.

There are also multiple inquiries into Pruitt's lease of a $50-a-night Capitol Hill condo in 2017 from lobbyist Vicki Hart. Hart's husband, J. Steven Hart, who is also a lobbyist, met with Pruitt at the same time that he was leasing that room.

A review of EPA emails showed deeper ties between Pruitt and lobbyists, including that a family friend of those lobbyists was considered for a position at EPA.

Both the EPA inspector general and the Government Accountability Office (GAO) are reviewing an April 2017 meeting that Pruitt had with the National Mining Association regarding the Paris climate agreement, which critics said may have violated anti-lobbying laws.

GAO found in April that Pruitt's installation of a $43,000 soundproof phone booth violated federal spending laws because EPA didn't notify lawmakers that it exceeded the $5,000 limit for agency heads to improve their offices. Pruitt and other EPA officials said Pruitt used the booth to receive classified information and to talk with White House and other administration officials.

Several reviews have to do with Pruitt's use of email. Senate Environment and Public Works Chairman John Barrasso, a Wyoming Republican, began looking into reports that Pruitt had four EPA email addresses, at least one of which was not disclosed. EPA's inspector general said in May that it would review Pruitt's use of multiple email accounts, at the request of Senate Democrats.

Compounding all of these bruising headlines have been semi-frequent accounts of Pruitt's personal conduct and use of official resources. Reports included Pruitt wanting to use sirens to get to an upscale French restaurant in Washington, having security and aides help him find a preferred lotion and pick up a used mattress from the Trump hotel in Washington. The anecdotes offered ammunition for critics of the now-outgoing EPA chief as a creature of the swamp Trump promised to drain.

Source

The fact that he lasted longer than he should have is astounding, yet scary. Regardless of any "political views", this is incredibly unacceptable of all levels within politics.

Posting Rules
  • Posting order won’t be enforced unless indicated otherwise. I usually follow the unspoken practice of posting my new turn after everyone else does.
  • Most of us are busybodies, so the idea to maintain consistency is to post at least once a week. I will announce if I can’t do my minimum weekly post; I trust that anyone going on vacation, not being able to post for the week, or otherwise dropping out can notify everyone as well in the planning thread or smth. You may jump back in any time, just keep an eye out for my posts especially since they advance the game (or ask me to catch you up in the Planning thread). Those who don’t post their minimum weekly post without saying why will be skipped over for when I use my turn-- longer periods of unexplained absences will result in your character getting benched.
  • I will not do Bunny modding. Posts requesting me or others to play their characters for them without explanation will be removed and the character will be temporarily benched if the player is MIA.
  • Some may find it easier to just read my posts because they’re the ones that advance the plot as the game progresses. Especially note any OOC sections I post in bold. I recommend you subscribe to the game thread so that you will be alerted.
  • Try not to make things too convenient or far outside the realm of possibility in-universe.
  • The lore thread is the foundational background you need to make your character. I'm not changing it Tongue
  • Please let me know if you find we are moving too slow or have similar grievances that can be resolved by me. If you wish, you can PM me about it. Post any questions concerning the game in the Planning thread, OR PM me. Smile


[Image: A1kvwRA.png]
The early hours within the Terranovan Union headquarters were no busier than usual, but today was an important day for the leaders of each planet enlisted within the Union. Deep within Mars' crust, below the city of Arkadia, they were deliberating.

"So, when are we gonna get to see our little test subjects?" The Empress of Venus asked the Chairwoman, who was in charge of leading the agenda's proceedings. "I'm sick of waiting. We need to take action already."

"Please, Empress... According to Aurelia, they've fulfilled their required training and the draft tests finished about a week ago. I think this will be the first time they'll all be meeting each other together."

"And? How many do we have?" Another chair inquired. "Was the process that rigorous that we weeded out half the applicants?"

"Well, when you want something done right the first time, there has to be adjustments to control for errors when we can..." The Chairwoman answered, steepling her fingers together. "But of the ones that passed so far, only four have responded to the invitation for today's council meeting."

"Four? Just four?" Cut in Earth's chair. "Tch... this ought to be good. We're basically resting the fate of our Solar System in the hands of four people at the moment... What are the other ones doing that they decided our correspondence wasn't worth their time?" He hissed in frustration while rubbing his temples.

"No idea as of yet, but if it makes you feel more assured, two of them are technically my subordinates. If I remember right from Aurelia's report, all four of them are right here on Mars. We'll see them later this morning once they get acquainted with each other and their commander." She began to go through holographic messages as she spoke.

"Great... what could possibly go wrong?"

[Text transmission for the players]
THIS INFORMATION IS CLASSIFIED: CIVILIANS DO NOT HAVE CLEARANCE TO VIEW THIS DOCUMENT. DO NOT FORWARD IT.

AFTER passing through each round of the draft and completed your basic training, you have been summoned to the headquarters of the Terranovan Union, located 3 kilometers beneath Mars's surface where Arkadia is: only TU personnel have the clearance to enter, but two of your fellow Orion Squad members know how to access the pathway safely. They have been working for the Terranovan Union's branch on Mars for some time now, so they will be familiar with the regulations of the Unions. Once you meet with them together, you will be escorted to the meeting room to meet with your Commander. The council of planetary representatives for the Union will also meet with you to discuss the project's agenda.

PLEASE remember that the Orion Project is a top-secret project that is not known to the general public. As far as civilians will be aware of, your uniform will simply appear to belong to any low-clearance personnel of the Union. The insignia of the Orion Squad differs from the standard TU design just enough to indicate your level of clearance with higher-ranked personnel, but shouldn't draw any wandering eyes. Any information you gain must not be shared with anyone outside the Terranovan Union.

[Union Chairwoman & Martian High Council Leader Ziara Elmak]

In the outskirts of Arkadia, west of the Badlands...

"How long is it gonna take to wait for these chumps to show up? Did they even tell us how many we were supposed to wait for?" A young woman with black hair and strange-colored eyes asked her taller, one-eyed companion. She looked impatient and grumpy, holding her biker helmet loosely under her arm.

"Don't know. We were all given the same coordinates, so it's just a matter of time before they arrive. What does it matter to you? Were you up late again?" The horned cyclops replied without sympathy in her telepathic voice.

"Yeah, fixin' my bike 'cause the oil filter was clogged to fuck with this shitty red sand!" The shorter woman cursed, kicking at the dirt. "Couldn't get a wink of sleep anyway. Talking to fancy big-wigs isn't my thing."

"That's too bad. Suck it up."

"Son of a bitch, you're no help at all, you know that Pinky?"

"I do not offer sympathies to a criminal that stole the equipment she's going to use for the mission. I also prefer to keep the idle chat to a minimum."

"Wow. That's... harsh."

  Sonic the Hedgehog Film
Posted by: ShineCero - 07-04-2018, 09:22 PM - Forum: Metroham Entertainment - Replies (2)

[Image: https%3A%2F%2Fblogs-images.forbes.com%2F...00x675.jpg]

Quote:In new interviews with Paramount executives and producers, we are finally getting details on what this new live-action Sonic The Hedgehog movie will be about and it sounds rather cringeworthy.

The first interview with James Gianopulos in Deadline has him talk about the overall premise for Sonic as a character in this new movie and that the beloved blue hedgehog will be a “delinquent”.

He’s a juvenile delinquent on the adventures in a pretty straight rural environment with a local policeman. It was instantly engaging and it was good enough where you could see where it’s going.

This is a very obvious and pretty massive deviation from the character in the games and it’s clear that they don’t understand this property at all.

Following that, the second interview with Neal Moritz at The Wrap fleshes out this new movie’s premise even further.

What we’re trying to do with Sonic is make a movie about a small-town police officer and Sonic at a time when they are both desperately in need of a friend, and we hope that this theme is friendship is what gives the film its heart and makes it prosper.

So not only is Sonic a juvenile delinquent but this will also be a buddy cop movie, which is a surreal kind of wrong.

Considering how badly Paramount messed up its Ghost in the Shell live-action movie adaptation, you would have thought that the company would have hired people who actually understand Japanese intellectual properties by now. Clearly, that is not the case here.

Instead, Sonic will be wrongly cast as a delinquent in a buddy cop movie. So as someone that has played the Sonic The Hedgehog games for years, I really don’t understand what Paramount is trying to do here, apart from alienating the entire fanbase it needs to engage with.

This live-action Sonic The Hedgehog movie will be released next year in theaters on November 15.
