Dec 13 updated: The difference between an RPG, Action-Adventure, and an ARPG - and why Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3 and 4, and Witcher 3 are not RPGs

December 13th, 2020 addition:   In the first comment underneath the OP, I've added some quotes by Gary Gygax, who coined the phrase "role-playing game", where he says linear narratives aren't RPGs, that combat shouldn't be fixated on in an RPG, and that combat and levelling-up just for the sake of combat and levelling-up doesn't constitute an RPG.   October 8th, 2020 addition with January 3rd, 2021 edits:   Let's start with what the creators of the RPG genre say an

Day I don't know anymore!

Hey! This will be my last blog post because I'm terrible at blogging, so it's time to tell you all what I've been up to! I got movement working outstandingly, and am now wrestling with an assault rifle that refuses to shoot at the set fire rate! I'm going to check Stack Overflow later today to see if they have anything, but until then, it's crap.   In other news, my new PC parts arrived, so I'm going to be moving all my files over there soon!   Other than that, I've noth

Day 6 (Yes, I skipped some days, I'm aware)

So after changing my idea for like the 100th time, I had an idea, and the beginning and relative end of a story spanning 100s of millennia. The basic plot for this game is you're a U.S. army soldier that has been assigned to help fight alien invaders in the year 2036 (There's more backstory, but I don't feel like typing it all out right now). The gameplay will be very DOOM-like, except for one thing; a portal system that can also harm any enemies that walk into it. Anyways, all I've done so far

Fixing up an old laptop..

I used to run a Toshiba Satellite L650D with a Phenom II P960 and I think it is a Mobility Radeon HD 5450? Well today I got very mad at my ProBook X360 G1 EE  which has a Pentium N4200 and Intel HD Graphics 505. It can be quite slow at times. Anyway, I was thinking maybe throwing an SSD, new battery and some more memory in the Toshiba and using that. I'm not currently at home, but when I get home, I'm going to benchmark the two systems. I'd also like the laptop to be capable of lighter gaming. W

Day 1: Why did I start this now?

Today, I started working on my first indie game that I actually have a plan to publish on Steam, and boy it couldn’t have been a worse time to start.  I began the scripting at 10:00PM during a staycation at a local hotel on a 10 year old Acer Aspire One netbook. Not only was the hardware bad, (Don’t worry, I have an actually decent computer that I do most of the work on) but I was so tired that even copy-pasting was a pain in the butt to do. Anyways, I barely did anything today, so I’ll upd

exosome miRNA for prostate cancer (PCa)

Prostate Cancer (PCa) is the second most commonly diagnosed malignancy in males globally and is the fifth-highest cause of death worldwide (Rawla, P. 2019). In New Zealand, survival rates are particularly bleak, with PCa often being diagnosed at admission as metastatic (Brown, K. 2015), leading to a poor prognosis.   Bone metastases occur in a significant number of prostate cancer cases at diagnosis causing an increase in the risk of pathological fractures and nerve root compression (

Finally getting round to undervolting my 290X!

If you didn't already know, the R9 290x is a card that loves to run hot. I've replaced the thermal paste, put new fans in, and it still manages to thermal throttle. A few weeks back I asked for advice on undervolting my card, and @TofuHaroto replied and said to undervolt to -50mV and work my way down.   Actually Undervolting My Card So, I put -50mV into MSI Afterburner and... my display went absolutley crazy.

Day One - It's getting hot in here... Ahem...

As many of you know, I am still recovering from my recent medical issues so I will keep this brief.    I'm going to pass on my usual commentary, instead I am once again going to talk about the importance of what we are doing here. I think sometimes we can forget, getting lost on all the competition and events that we are assisting with medical research. The time that we spend here, suffering from the heat could help many people some day, be that cancers, neurological issues, COVID or a
