Here is the eleventh issue of the Lewd News, written by the Writers group.

Sorry it's a little late again. People were busy again.



anime
by @Kiss of Death


Snaps
  • Dagashi Kashi anime will air starting this January. Takayanagi, the director behind The World God Only Knows, will be in charge of this project at studio feel.
  • Monster Hunter Stories is scheduled to air in 2016. Unlike God Eater, which was made based on an existing game, this anime will follow the story of the game that's yet to come - so we won't see much monster slaying, but rather monster riding.
  • CAPCOM has announced an official Biohazard/Resident Evil feature-length CG anime. It will be shown sometime in 2017. The story will be completely original, but will nonetheless feature some of the known characters, such as Chris Redfield, Rebecca Chambers or Leon Kennedy.

Grimgar... what?
Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash gets an anime adaptation this January. I'm not really sure how to take it, but from what I can tell, it's bound to be interesting. The official site describes the series as follows:
Quote:Living, isn't easy.
When Haruhito awakens, he's in the dark.
He doesn't know where he is, why is he here, and where he came from.
Around him there are several men and women who have the same circumstances.
Together, they advance forward away from the darkness, and a world they've never seen before called "Grimgar" spreads out before them.
Memories, money, special powers — This is the reality we who have none of those things have obtained.

Yu-Gi... Oh... new movie?
Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Dark Side of Dimensions has been announced as a movie, which will be shown during the Golden Week 2016 (so late April-early May) in Japan. What's interesting about it is that it will feature returning cast from Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, so... Yugi Motou, Seto Kaiba, Tristan Taylor (or Hiroto Honda), Joey Wheeler (or Katsuya Jonouchi), Téa Gardener (or Anzu Masaki) and Ryo Bakura. Remember them? I bet you do. I sure hope this will live up to my expectations...



gaming
by @suicid3Panda


With all the bad in the gaming industry, it's nice to see some good. Speaking of which, the creators of Skullgirls, Lab Zero, have finally launched their crowd-funding campaign for Indivisible. It's a Metroidvania RPG who's battle system shares similarities to Valkyrie Profile. The game looks gorgeous, especially if you like the fluid, Disney-like animations in Skullgirls. In fact, the only bad press this game has received is criticism that the demo looks too good, and some people are accusing them of having the game already finished. In any case, check out the free demo and the crowd-funding campaign here.

Another crowd-funding project I'm stoked about is one for Friday the 13th: The Game!  Slasher Vol.1: Summer Camp was a homage project started by Gun Media.  It featured asynchronous multi-player where one player is the slasher, and the rest are teens at a camp in the woods. License holders of Friday the 13th were so blown away by this proof of concept that they basically gifted the rights over to them to make the homage an official game! This is pretty unheard of. Now partnered with the series' original creators, things are shaping up to be awesome! Check it out here.

What? You want me to rip on some game publisher that's doing something shitty? Nope, I'm going to keep it positive! EA has it's pre-order page up for Star Wars: Battlefront. There is the standard edition for $59.99, the Deluxe Edition for $69.99, and the Ultimate Edition for $129.99!  The extra $10 for the Deluxe Edition gets you EARLY ACCESS to the Ion Torpedo, Ion Grenade, and Han Solo's blaster!  That's right early not exclusive access. Well, how much earlier? From what the Beta showed us, about 2 matches early. Oh, well you also get 2 emotes. $10 for a couple dances!!! Th...that's good... right?

Now the Ultimate Edition is for serious players! In addition to the aforementioned goodies, you also get THE SEASON PASS and EARLY ACCESS to new content!! What does the season pass include? Four expansions!! Including... STUFF! We don't know what it is, but it'll be great... maybe! So if you want early access to unknown stuff, then fork over that extra $50, and game on!!! The season pass costs $50 by itself saving you a total of $00.00!!!

Writer's note: Please stop pre-ordering games... except for rare ones like Disgaea 5, right @mis?

Issue #11: whereisalex

This weeks artist will be a bit shorter described for one reason: not much is actually known about him. When looking at his social media you're greeted with the same location, 'nowhere, america'. Whereisalex is an Amercian producer featured on the Noir Sound roster who is most widely known for his intricate textures and productions styles which is almost instantly recognizable. The artist stated that he recently quit his job due to production making him the same income, hence the frequency of his releases currently, and most likely in the future as well. Another astonishing feature of this artist is his prints, the artist has been seen on social media working on his own artwork. It seems through and through this artist proves again and again he's a truly self-made man. With this amount of effort and determination I'd say we'll be hearing from him a lot more.

Nintendo now handing out NX console developer kits

eurogamer.net Wrote:Nintendo has begun issuing developers with software kits for its upcoming under-wraps NX console, a new report claims. The Wall Street Journal sources have said that the console will include a "mobile unit that could either be used in conjunction with the console or taken on the road for separate use".
This tallies with previous speculation that Nintendo will replace both its handheld and home console offerings simultaneously.
A separate mobile unit could also fit the description of the touchscreen-based controller that Nintendo recently patented, that also has shoulder scroll wheels.

Source.

Looks like Nintendo listened to the public and is sending out dev units of their new NX consoles. From what I've heard this console is both portable and used at home. It has two different units; one that you can carry with you on buses or trains, and the other is the main console at home connected to the tv/monitor. It sounds like the same idea as the Nintendo Wii U but better. I really hope Nintendo doesn't mess up again with this console. Or else their fan base is going to deplete again.

NVIDIA GeForce Experience Update: 4K GameStream & 1080p Twitch + Driver Update

anandtech.com Wrote:Since launching their GeForce Experience software utility over two years ago, NVIDIA has continued to iterate on it in a fairly regular fashion. Along with its software update and game settings optimization features, NVIDIA has added a number of features over the past couple of years tied to their NVENC hardware encoder, including GameStream, ShadowPlay, and most recently the beta for Share and GameStream Co-Op. As one might expect, NVIDIA is not stopping there, and in a briefing to the press this week, NVIDIA is announcing some of their feature development plans for GeForce Experience over the next couple of months.

To kick things off, in a new beta release hitting NVIDIA’s servers today, NVIDIA will be updating several of GeForce Experience’s various NVENC-powered features to enable new features. On the GameStream front NVIDIA will be offering new functionality specifically targeted at the recently launched SHIELD Android TV set top box. With the SHIELD Android TV capable of decoding 4K video content, NVIDA is now giving GameStream the ability to encode video at that resolution, allowing for GameStream remote gaming at full native resolution for 4K TVs. Furthermore NVIDIA is also giving GameStream the ability to serve up 5.1 audio.

Source.

Nvidia is back this week with a major update. Their Geforce Experience is getting a major update to accommodate 4k 60fps streaming. Obviously, you'll need the hardware to play 4k 60fps natively to stream to lan network. I'd also recommend using HDMI 2.0 or DisplayPort or else your experience will probably be 4k 30fps and no one wants that.

EK-Predator Product News

overclock.net Wrote:Technical highlights:

Hovercore is revolutionary design of radiator dampeners that prevents transfer of pump vibrations further down the unit and into the chassis, thus resulting in vibration free and silent operation.
Supremacy MX CPU water block, top performer in Enthusiast segment, is specifically designed for Intel CPUs and offers great hydraulic and thermal performance. Carefully machined copper base is made from purest copper available and is further polished to absolute mirror finish. This alone greatly improves the cooling performance of the block.
CoolStream PE radiator – 240mm or 360mm, has full Copper core being superior to aluminum alternatives in terms of heat dissipation. In conjunction with EK-Vardar fans the result is increased performance across entire fan operational range thus delivering results both at low and high airflow operation.
VardarTM fans – two on Predator 240 and three on Predator 360 – are high static pressure fans developed in-house specifically for liquid cooling systems. With low noise profile and PWM technology built in, you can always control the RPM and keep the fans silent while maintaining excellent cooling performance.
DDC pump is a powerful 6W liquid cooling pump providing 2-3x higher flow rate compared to other AIOs on the market. It’s also PWM controlled allowing for automatic pump speed regulation depending on your CPU temperature. Full performance on demand or whisper quiet operation in idle mode!

Source.

EK did it everyone. They finally did it. EK make a fully upgradeable AIO cooler for pcs. What does this all mean? This means that you can buy an EK Predator watercooler and then in a few months, buy a waterblock for your graphics card and hook it into the loop. The Predator has a built in pump, reservoir, fans, and radiator meaning it's all plug-and-play. The 360 variant has quick disconnects so it's easier to connect other blocks to the loop. Well done EK.

Yes, Pepsi is launching smartphones in China

engadget.com Wrote:In today's edition of baffling corporate branding decisions, Pepsi has confirmed plans to launch smartphones and a line of accessories in China in the coming months, Reuters reports. The company made it clear that it won't be manufacturing the phones, instead it'll be licensing its brand to a partner (there's really no shortage of phone makers in China). While Pepsi isn't divulging more details yet, Mobipicker reports that one of the phones is called the Pepsi P1 according to Chinese blogs. For the most part, it looks like an unremarkable mid-range Android phablet with a 5.5-inch screen, 1.7 Ghz CPU and 16GB of storage. But hey, at least it sports some nifty Pepsi logo bling. The P1 will reportedly retail for around $200 in China, and we'll likely hear official details on October 20. I wouldn't expect this to hit the US or Europe, but don't be surprised if Coca-Cola follows suit. (As Engadget's Chris Velazco points out, this phone isn't that crazy, as it's coming from the company that gave us Pepsi-Man.)

Source.

This is easily the weirdest article I have written. Pepsi is a soda making company and they want to make a smartphone? What the hell?! The phone has a 5.5-inch screen, 1.7 Ghz CPU and 16GB of storage. Nothing too interesting except this phone is being only sold in China, probably since they want to keep shipping costs down. OHHHHHHHHHH. #REKD. So to sum up this, Pepsi is doing a PR stunt by advertising a phone with their logo on it. Big woop.

We reached 1000 members and 22,000 posts.

I've been working on the flat theme again; which should hopefully be finished within the next two weeks, in time for halloween.

Some nice threads:
  • Nagi no Asukara - part 1 & Nagi no Asukara - part 2 - by @Kiss of Death - underrated threads :gem:
  • A new contest! One week! Hurry! - by @Kiss of Death
  • Taymor's Seasonal Reviews Fall 2015 - Episode 1 - by @taymor :heart:
  • BEMANI central. - by @Akatsuki
  • Doing requests. Well kind of. :D - by @CsAdventures - thread was made before last week's news but some great stuff going on this week!
  • There really was a lot more than the above five bullet points, I wish I could link to them all.

    Make sure you check out your unread posts and show a little bit of appreciation for the great threads you find, by bumping them with a bit of conversation.

    One of the things that makes me sad is that there are a tonne of really good threads, but they end up getting buried and forgotten about, making the creator of the thread feel like their efforts have gone to waste.

    A classic example of this would be the "The Masochists Corner" sub-forum, where Kiss of Death has gone through blood sweat and tears to write up some really great reviews, only to have them unnoticed by anyone.

    I can understand that the current system is pretty terrible for finding good threads, and is only really good for finding the most recently bumped threads, which is something I plan on tackling with the new theme.

I don't get it, why would anyone want a phone with a Pepsi logo slapped on? You can already buy phone cases with whatever theme you want, Pepsi included. The only benefit I can really see coming out if this is if you got some kind of deal on Pepsi products because you own their phone, but even that could have been implemented easily with a Pepsi app for every phone OS.

Capitalism at its weirdest, man.

I'm almost certain that they won't make their money back with the phones, unless they make them oneplus tier cheap.

Wooyay news. As far as the meta points go, I always try and look into any threads I can and make some good contributions, it's just a shame I don't really have a wide interest base so I can't always really get involved and probably miss out on some really cool stuff. I suppose being a more general community things aren't always as focused so it's hard to make a thread a lot of people will enjoy without being too vague.

I'll have to try and get more involved and think of some cool stuff to post about. Either way, good news!

Just gonna give my user-end perspective on this... I didn't even know that this Masochists Corner sub-forum existed until I read your post just now. I've only been reading/writing the reviews from the Anime & Manga Review and Recommendation section, because I thought that's where all of them were supposed to go. That's probably my own fault though, because I just sort of glance right past the Writer's forum unless I see one of those story writing contests pop up in the bump feed. I feel like the whole idea/label for the Writer's forum is vague so I don't know what I should post there, which is why I tend to avoid it unless I find the short story contest because that topic is very straight-forward and something I can dive into easily

Pepsi has been absolutely huge in China lately, they will make a lot of money off of this

YES!! I would just say not to preorder say.... Assassin's Creed. You will have NO trouble finding that game on Day 1. With Ubisoft's track record, no one should trust them with their money before they release a product.  They burn us left and right.

I preorder a shitload of games, but usually just niche titles that will most likely sell out. (Exception .... Fallout 4! Becasue I <3 Bethesda and I trust them to make a good game)

Has anyone heard that the NEW Nintendo console is supposedly a handheld - like the 3DS, which can dock into station that allows for TV play?  Do you know how many 3DS game i would LOVE to play if they were not confined to a tiny portable screen!!?!?

This would be a console I fully support!

There isn't. Some modded 3DSes can do it, but otherwise no. Also it would look like total garbage on such a huge screen. If a console was dedicated to doing it, i would imagine there would be some sort of upscaling implemented with that in mind.
