Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Sometimes the forums make me wonder

    I mean, how do you look yourself in the mirror after having a serious discussion over whether Zero is a robot samurai or a robot ninja?

    Tell me about it.

    What if he is a cyborg sellsword?

    Armadillos are like anteaters with armor.

    If an anteater can be all "come at me bro" then imagine how badass an armadillo can be!

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    I kind of tore up my shoulder weightlifting. Which is sad considering how weak I still am. It doesn't hurt, but it pops a lot. So, I'm going to discontinue my routine until it stops doing that and have it looked at.

    I'm sure that I'll be even weaker again by the time it's better.

    The good news is I'm running faster now. I'm just not sure what I'm going to do without upper body work.

    You don't need to be told this, but don't do f*ck all with your shoulder/upper body till you get it checked out.

    So many horrible life long injuries occur from doing tiny, seemingly harmless actions.

    Here's a really long, fascinating article by some black film critics wrestling with the problem of Tyler Perry.
    Ah yes, the revered Black Correctness, or as they Ebonically put it, "Keepin' it Real." Perry suffers that affliction, as does his nemesis, Spike Lee. Let's really piss Shelton off, shall we? I can draw a straight line from Perry's stage plays/movies to Spike Lee's School Daze. As I wrote during BHM 2011, School Daze is a glorious hot mess. It is full of Perry's audaciousness, but tethered by Lee's directorial skill and Ernest Dickerson's glorious cin-tog. In Daze, Lee is speaking directly and solely to Black folks--probably for the last time in Lee's career--and like Perry, his audience is a specific set of Folks. I didn't go to a historically Black college, but I knew enough of them to follow even if I couldn't appreciate it fully.

    Perry and Lee also share the desire to mock and reconstruct bougie Negroes. You can be a success, but it will cost you your nappy soul if you don't have God in a Perry film, or a dark-skinned mate in some of Lee's work. Lee's corrective--that thing designed to set you on the right path--is, of course, Spike Lee the director. Perry's corrective is usually his alter ego, the gun-totin', kid-slappin' Madea.

    I really think Madea scares "the enlightened Negro" because she reminds them of that which they have "escaped." She's that reminder that, no matter how far you get in the majority's world, you still have dark colored clothing in your closet. Like a chitlin' circuit comedian, Madea is pure Black id. She is not polite, rarely goes to church, smokes, and reminds every single Black person of somebody they know. Madea tries my last nerve, just like the family members she reminds me of, and that's why I'm not a big fan. And after seeing Madea's Big Happy Family on bootleg today, I think I finally get why Madea is so important to Perry, and why she might be harder to give up than Whitney's crack:

    Tyler Perry is the victimized character in his films, and Madea is his personal superhero.

    She is what the therapist I go to for my own childhood traumas refers to as "a protector identity." In portraying this protector, Perry is saving himself. Surely, God will deliver Perry's characters, but He occasionally has avenging angels.

    What I consider to be the most interesting point of this game is the story mode. Before playing an Arcs game, I was totally unaware of a story that was so detailed. As can be seen from the sprites, the game takes on the anime style and as such has an anime storyline, full of twists and turns. I suppose if you aren't a big fan of anime, don't let it hinder your enjoyment of the game itself.

    Why yes, guy on GoG. When I think of Guilty Gear, the first thing I think of is the story.

    1. I can't pass through Muslim territory without declaring war, right? So could I declare war on another Muslim nation and use that to get in position? I'm guessing no, but it's worth a shot.

    2. What could I get by occupying the Murabitid King's personal provinces? Just the titles to those two provinces, or could I force other things as well?

    You get free claims on any heathen ruler's territories you occupy. His titles outside of that are not going to be available.

    Don't be so afraid of making mistakes in the game. You have like 450 years to undo anything you do wrong as long as you don't die.
