  1. Super Smash Bros. 4

    Currently sitting at 139 - 12 record in For Glory as a Ganondorf main. While I prefer the more frantic technical flair of Melee, this feels like the most balanced Smash Bros. yet. Barring some given terrible matchups, there are no outright terrible characters and even the worst have a decent shot.
  2. Evolve

    I was given like 10 keys for the weekend alpha test. Currently 6 to spare now. It's great. It's Left 4 Dead - Tank Fights: The Game with a lot of depth. So far I'm pretty impressed.
  3. Super Smash Bros. 4

    He is currently identical to his Brawl counterpart in terms of his performance and since the launch of the tier list for Smash 4, he has been struggling to break out and stay out of bottom 5. Seriously all you need to do to frustrate any Ganondorf after Melee was to play the distance game and wait for him to hang himself before you press any buttons.
  4. Super Smash Bros. 4

    Almost to 20 characters now on finishing Classic Mode on 9.0. Currently got around 80% win rate in For Glory with bottom tier Ganondorf. Lots of fun!
  5. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

    Well the Phantom Pain thread I made earlier that had some initial doubts that it was MGS 5 is already gone. So here's another one. And I was right. And I guess it's also Ground Zeroes as well? Edit: Now linking to HD version.
  6. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    Surface-level story is pretty much what you expect. Any interest I have in it is owed to D's Journal.
  7. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    On the 3DS/2DS menu, there's a square face with a smiley face at the top. Select that and move the cursor over to your own Mii. Your friend code is there.
  8. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    I allow it on this run but I honestly haven't used it at all yet. I've been sitting at full sleep points since the Intro Chapter.
  9. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    ^ding ding ding Fighting him at level 1 was no fun but I was hardly worried. I was well equipped!
  10. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    Not going to go too much into it but one of the asterisk battles in chapter 3 took me 55 phoenix downs to get through it on this challenge run. @_@
  11. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    I hope I didn't kill the thread. In any case, I have been in chapter 3 for awhile but I think I am almost done with it. I have gotten every asterisk so far as well. No EXP, No JP, No PG, No Abilink, No Summon Friends, Hard Mode still going strong. Chapter 4 lies just ahead.
  12. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    Right now I'm stuck with everything off and on Hard Mode. I will ease up on limitations if I really do hit an absolute wall. I'm almost to Chapter 3 but so far so good without any Abilinks or Summon Friends. *shrug* I'll update if I ever hit a spot where it's impossible to pass at the current settings.
  13. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    Everyone's dead all the time until I figure out the boss fights. I don't know how much I can keep this up in Bravely Default though because this game can be tricky. It's easy to fall into the mindset that you need hard numbers to back you up because damn the bosses don't hold back. And no. I'm still trying to figure out phase 2 of that fight. Every 7 hits from the keyblade triggers a hard counter that I am most likely unable to dodge. And I need to use invincibility frames on Strike Raid to avoid Sephiroth's multi-slash attack. Once I get that down I'll still need to learn phase 3 where meteor's start coming down. T___T;
  14. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    A little taste of this file. This is the results from the boss fight right before I got the thread thing. (Trying to be non-spoilery as possible for people wanting to play. I'm sure most of you can figure out where and when this is.) Those are all the starting levels for each character. I can't go any lower than that.
  15. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    how have you done that? i'm unsure of how that would be possible.I can go into that in more detail if anyone wants to know more but the general gist of it is that equipment and item play are critical and so is figuring out the best class setups and commands for ideal defaulting into brave sweeping. I had to double check but yeah those were the levels. I'm also inches from finishing a 100% Level 1 Proud Mode Kingdom Hearts Final Mix run and I'll be streaming that soon.
  16. Bravely Default: Return of old school Final Fantasy

    Started a separate file from my normal play through on Hard Mode. I'm in the middle of Chapter 2. I have yet to gain EXP, JP, or money (from battles) nor have I used any summon friends. It seems like I can get pretty far just with team comp and exploiting enemy behavior and weaknesses. (And Norende :3) Time to see how far I can push this.
  17. Happy Birthday, Global-Trance!

    I ate at two surprisingly and ridiculously delicious buffets. I totes ate all the things
  18. Happy Birthday, Global-Trance!

    Oh hey. A thread. \o/ \o/ Thanks guys. <3
  19. OCR Ad Fail

    Play Now, My Lord
  20. What does Global-Trance even do?

    A lot of people know me more as a DJ that does seamless harmonic mixes (which can be found at and more recently but on the side I do visual art stuff! Due to the sheer size of some of these images and the fact that I will be dumping a lot of stuff here now and will continue to do so, I'm going to go through with CREATING CLICKABLE THUMBNAILS. I'm mostly a digital artist but I'll be throwing in some drawing from time to time... hopefully. I'll start with the 3D stuff. Facial Anatomy Studies (Modeled and textured in ZBrush) My Version of the Creature from "The Creature from the Black Lagoon". (Modeled in ZBrush) Basic Armor Suit (Modeled and quickly painted in ZBrush) Skin and Polypaint Test (Edited model and painted in ZBrush) Chain Armor Modeling (Modeled in ZBrush - yes all of that is actual geometry) Punching Mech Suit (Modeled in ZBrush) Prototype Bike (Modeled and rendered in Maya with Mental Ray) Subsurface Scattering Study (Textured in Maya, rendered in with Mental Ray, model supplied by Digital Tutors)
  21. What does Global-Trance even do?

    Did this one real quick to test out some things with lighting. Sculpted and rendered in ZBrush. Click for a bigger picture.
  22. What does Global-Trance even do?

    Here's my first try at modeling a full body. I started with a female figure. Base model, no hair. Click to see a much larger image. This one is a bit NSFW. Modeled in ZBrush. This will be the basis for any more detailed 3D female character work later on. Self Critique: I skimped out on the toes and some finger detail. The toes need to be thicker so I will go back and fix that. I could have made some more indications of the anatomy of the forearm as well. Also if you're going to get worked up about the lady bits, you can look forward to the manly bits whenever I sculpt the male figure later.
  23. How important is age and talent?

    There are some people definitely who are talented but don't practice their craft because they think they can skate by with their innate skill. Part of why I mentioned humility and hard work as I have seen many people just plain stop growing because they go on and on about how smart or skilled they are. And everyone else eventually just blows past them...
  24. How important is age and talent?

    I guess I should add the disclaimer that it applies to most things within reason. But you all get what I mean anyways.
  25. How important is age and talent?

    I think we all pick up some things a little better and a little quicker than others but if there's one thing I learned when approaching a craft, it's that talent is sort of a lie. In most cases, a lot of what we consider talent is a result of a lot of long term experience and practice. Things seem easy for others because they put the hours into it and can get to decent and maybe above average results in shorter time. I guess age is a bit of a factor in that the older we get, the more responsibilities we have, thus a little less time to a craft. But with that said, it's never too late to work hard at something. If you want to be really good at something, stay humble, know your place, connect with others doing the same thing as you, and work your ass off. Things will eventually click. TL;DR version > age and talent are factors but humility and hard work trump everything else
