RPG Maker MV has been announced

Well, I don’t usually preorder software, but I felt that it’d be a good idea to get RPG Maker MV, I like that type of software, and want to eventually make a complete game of my own…  If you want to take a look, you can click here to go to their site.  I’m still not very fond of the ‘chibi’ characters introduced in RMVX, At least I can use sprites made for RMXP as they look a lot nicer (Too bad there aren’t too many available, sadly)  So far, I’m torn between VX Ace and RPG Maker 2003 as being the best RPG Maker available, I’m sure that MV will probably beat VX Ace (if for nothing else the cross platform compatibility.)

Here’s a link to their intro video.

You can also get RPG Maker MV at their Steam page.


A link that can crash Google Chrome

Here’s an interesting video…

Disclamer: Don’t do this in your Google Chrome browser, at least as of now it’ll crash that browser.

Interestingly Firefox just gives an ‘Server not found’ error, Edge… well it doesn’t do anything, Internet explorer brings up an error saying that it cannot find that address.  I don’t have Opera, so I don’t know what it does.  I wonder how long it’ll be before the chrome team fixes that bug.



Virtual reality, explained with some trippy optical illusions | Mashable

All I must say is wow…

Optical illusions are very interesting, Someone made the dragon optical illusion in Minecraft a while ago.  I wonder if I have a copy of the map anywhere, it was very interesting to look at.  I think that it’d be better in VR than on a 2d screen, maybe I’ll have to make it myself one of these days…

Aside from the intro, they didn’t really say much about VR though.  At least aside from it being able to use optical illusions very interestingly.

Well, that’s it for now, have a nice day.


Columbia Pictures copyright claim results in own Pixels trailer being taken down | News | Geek.com (Updated)

Well, it looks like Columbia pictures is going a bit overboard with the DMCA requests.  I mean really, taking down videos just because they have the same name as your Movie (And they were out long before the movie!)

Among the casualties of the DMCA was a video project called “Pantone Pixels” and a 2006 video produced by an NGO called “Pixels.” Also pulled down was a short film (seen above) called “Pixels,” which is the inspiration for the Hollywood production.

Update:  Evidently, the company that was handing out the DMCAs have withdrawn the DMCA requests.  I’m guessing that someone at the company set a bot to do a far too general search, hopefully something like this doesn’t happen again in the future.


Dig Build Live 360

The fine folks that are making the Dig Build Live have made a … interesting… 360 video.  As with last time, i’ll probably work best in Google Chrome, though it appears that Firefox has added 360 video support.  Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge (For those Windows 10 users out there…) do not support 360 videos at this time.

You should also be able to view it on your smartphone, using the Google Chrome browser, the Youtube App, or the Google Cardboard App.


Warcraft: Skies of Azeroth

Here’s a nice 360 video…  Please note, this video will work best in Chrome (Especially on mobile devices) You can also watch it if you have an Oculus and the VR Desktop application installed.

The video will look strange in Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer (I haven’t tried Microsoft Edge yet, but I think that it’ll be the same there too.)  Really, the Gryphon looks like a very strange rug.

I’ve always been a fan of the Warcraft series, but I just never really got into World of Warcraft, mostly thanks to the fact that I don’t want to pay a montly fee for a game when I have plenty of others that I still need to get through.  I am certainly looking forward to the Warcraft Movie.


Mojang announces new version of Minecraft

Mojang has announced Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta, which will be available through the Windows 10 store on July 29…  A day after Windows 10 is offically released.

You can read the post on the Mojang website.

From what they’re saying, Windows 10 Edition is based off of Minecraft PE, and players on the Windows 10 edition will be able to play multiplayer with both other MCPE and Minecraft XBox one editions.  I do find it strange, both the XBox one and PE versions of minecraft have features which the other one doesn’t have.  I wonder how that’ll work, I guess time will tell.

The new edition will be free to people who already own the PC version of Minecraft, if you don’t have the PC Version, it’ll cost you $10 for the beta version (Eventually the price will go up)

I feel sad that they don’t have Linux on the list of platforms that Minecraft is available on, as I generally play Minecraft on Linux, as it seems to run a bit more smoothly there.  Here’s their list of systems that you can run Minecraft on.

Minecraft is available on Windows, Mac, Windows Phone, iOS, Android, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PS Vita, and now, Windows 10.

Oh and Mojang also showed a preview of the new game – Minecraft: Story Mode, made by Telltale games.

I haven’t played any of their games, but I have heard that Telltale games does make some nice story-driven games. I wonder what their Minecraft story will be like.

Well anyways, have a nice day.


Minecraft on Hololens

Earlier today, there Microsoft had a presentation about Minecraft on their Hololens headset…

I have to wonder how close to reality that presentation is, I heard that Microsoft said that some truly epic things could be done with the Kinect, but none of that really happened, at least from what I’ve heard.  They want to make Windows 10 THE OS for VR and AR, seeing that they have a partnership with Oculus/Facebook, and evidently Valve/HTC on their Vive headset, they will probably be quite successful at doing that.
