Well if we had perhaps that'd be the first step for me to stop posting this every year.

 

Even after 6 years the avatar and signature still perfectly describe me lmao

In Topic: What Animes are you currently following?

I've just finished the most genius story I've seen, danganronpa. The reason why I didn't say anime is because you watch an anime, then play 2 detective visual novel like games, then play an action game, then watch 2 animes but you do it by watching one episode of one then one episode of the other, finishing with an anime consisting of only one episode and to add on that there's an OVA. The timeline is smacked around but it feels perfect.

 

There's more to this though, like visual novels, another game and more stuff that I've yet to go through.

 

Though, it's all worth it. I need more, if you enjoy intelligent shows this one is for you. The games are sometimes slow though but it's worth it. I like outsmarting the show and predicting what's going to happen. I succeed 85% of my predictions, though in danganronpa you make a million predictions. The danganronpa 3 pulls 3 plot twists every single episode that completely make sense but you didn't figure them out. I remember a moment when I was watching with a friend where I paused the shot and told him: "We predicted most shows/games and everything 20 hours before the ending twists happen. Lets think logically and think what can happen in this moment that makes sense." We came up with 6 possible combinations that are not bullshit and then danganronpa is like HUEHUEHHUEH here's a plot twist that completely makes sense and turns the entire thing around!

Fuck man, that was a great show. The day I was watching it I got shivers a thousand times, I'm getting them now just thinking about it.

I've noticed this is an old thread but I'll reply anyway for others.

 

All of the games I've made were in Java. I've made some 2D games with libraries you can easily find or with manually making few things yourself. I've made a short 3D MMORPG-like game using OpenGL in Java and I've found the tutorials on youtube which are pretty well made. I've made one more first person 3D game in Java without using any libraries, just pure math myself. I remember sitting at the computer for 6 hours with a color-picker trying to figure out why a pixel has 1 more red attribute in RGB than the previous pixel.

 

Good time, though I do think learning why things are made the way they are is pretty important in programming. If you start with higher-level things like Unity, it'll limit your creativity because you don't know what the options even are.

 

I've just remembered I've used OpenGL in C++ as well though that was for simulations but can be used for games too. Just to give you a heads up.

The keywords are OpenGL, LWJGL, Slick, Processing and so on.
