It’s easily one of the most beautiful games ever made, has an awesome soundtrack, and is dripping with style. The plot may be nonsense, but it’s beautiful nonsense that pulls on your brain. The style isn’t just skin deep. This game has character and it’s characters have character. There’s just character everywhere. The little bits of dialog from NPCs, the homages, and the ridiculous nonsense make this something special. Check out the video to see why I think this is worth playing.

  • Anime Rendering 101: Best HandBrake Settings Explained – H.265 & Opus

    GET A VPN you scoundrels! teksyndicate.com/pia Anime rendering is VERY serious business… and that is why I have created this video to help you make the highest quality anime renders at the smallest file sizes. I use h.265 for video, opus for audio, and there’s several tricks to maximize quality. A note on opus for audio: Opus is not supported by every player on the market and some users have had issues with mobile viewing. I watch these files on an Android tablet using Jellyfin OR VLC and have never had any issues, but if you are worried, use AAC. Here’s my video on Jellyfin: Get HandBrake here: github.com/HandBrake/HandBrake/releases Discord: discord.gg/vsCxNSD Twitch: www.twitch.tv/midnightdojo/ Twitter: twitter.com/teksyndicate/ For marketing (sponsorship opportunities) inquiries email [email protected] Ask us ANYTHING: [email protected] Gallery… GRAIN vs ANIMATION! In the galleries below, I have rendered the anime multiple times using different settings. This should act as a guide, so you can decide which tuning to use. The titles will tell you which preset was used (animation, grain, or none). Hope this helps! Ghost in the Shell 1995 (From the 4k Bluray) Neon Genesis Evangelion (Japanese Bluray)

Hardware is just a means to an end. So my first long-form video essay is on Elden Ring, and I think it’s a good topic for many reasons. First, as a newcomer to From Software games, I think my perspective is a little different. Hopefully I can help bridge a gap between the hardcore and the newbies. I had a few great experiences with members of the community… but many toxic experiences. I’ll cover that in the video. Next up, Elden Ring is one of the highest-rated games of all time. I think it’s a great game, but giving it a perfect score is extremely dishonest. I’m curious to know what you think of the video.

It’s similar to Emby and Plex, but it’s totally free… even the premium features are completely free. It has a great community and tons of plugins. So, it’s what I use to organize movies, anime, shows, etc. It can do music and audiobooks as well. The best part about this is that you can add several different metadata sources. For anime, I use Anidb, Anilist, and sometimes Kitsu. You can also add fanart.tv. imdb, VGMdb (for video game soundtracks) and a ton more. Lastly, you can install an opensubtitles plugin that automagically downloads subs for your shows.

  • How NFTs & Crypto Markets May Ruin AAA Gaming (How did I miss this?!) | RANT:30

    Store: epicpants.com Music: zweihander.com Website: teksyndicate.com Looking at current NFT games, we can start to imagine how things are going to be when greedy AAA publishers really get into this. There’s one huge angle that I totally missed before: markets. Tokens/coins can be added to various exchanges and such. So, people who do not even play the games could trade the in-game currency and wildly influence the markets… This has some big implications for future “play to earn” games.

In this article, Jeff conflates the decline of society with the irresponsibility of the youth who decide to spend their time on indie game development. I argue the opposite. I think it’s amazing that so many people are working on games and I think more should. Watch the video to fully hear my arguments. According to this chart, weak means artists… weak, leftist artists. This leads to hard times… but then the hero strong traditional men show up to whip us into shape. If you are unfamiliar with this chart, it’s the silly online political compass test. The top right area is authoritarian right… which means fascism. Nazis are in this area. I don’t want to tell everyone that Jeff believes this, but his argument is nearly identical to …
