Well, since I've played quite a bit of this game, I have enough info to express my thoughts on it. Final Fantasy XV is one of the best Final Fantasy games in the series, SquareEnix did a wonderful job on the graphics and gameplay.

The whole battle system is a wonderful experience, you can block attack and dodge in real time which is what I love in most modern games. Final Fantasy XV executes it perfectly, especially with Noctis' Warp Strike ability it makes the game feel fresh and new. It's a fun experience for all.

The graphics are very stunning, on the PlayStation 4 console they are slightly dummed down, but on PC I love how they look especially how thier hair blows in the wind while driving. The soundtrack is also quite amazing, it fits the Final Fantasy theme perfectly and I can never get enough of the radio while driving. 

Also I like the whole Day and Night system, where at night you have to watch out for "demons" which are a bit too much for you in the beginning of the game, and the levelup system is completely different, you have to go to sleep in order to game experience and level up, which is a nice little feature. It promotes actually having ...

Hey! I'm Lemon. And if you're like me, you like Mario Kart. Mario Kart is in my opinion one of the best multiplayer racing games out there. It's fun to play with friends (if they last while playing this game) and by yourself.

There have been several iterations of it over the past 20+ years. Earlier last month, Nintendo released Mario Kart Tour, a Mario Kart game for mobile devices. Mario Kart Tour is free to play until Oct. 9th (my speculation). I've been playing this game for a bit and I have to say it's really fun. There are many different ways to drive your kart, tons of different characters (no Luigi) and multiplayer. It will go to a 5 dollar a month subscription, which sucks because I am broke, but I understand the need to make the game paid. Unlike Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, there is a possibility to get up to 3 items and if you get three of a kind, you get multiple of the same item (helps if its a red shell). 

You unlock characters by paying coins or chancing it with a "loot box" system. Don't worry, it's really easy to get rubies (the things you pay to burst the pipe or whatever). You get them when you complete achievements, level up, or as a daily login awa...

Taking inspiration from the WPS Office Suite Review, I decided to make my own reviewing FreeOffice Suite. FreeOffice is made by SoftMaker, a company based in Germany founded in 1987. It comes with TextMaker, an alternative to Microsoft Word; PlanMaker, an alternative to Microsoft Excel; and Presentations, an alternative to Microsoft Powerpoint.  The software supports Windows, Mac OS, and Linux for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. I'd say that this is a satisfactory alternative to Microsoft Office, but here are a few important features that I missed in the video. In the end, I think it's up to the users as to what they are looking for in these types of applications, and I'd consider this one for people to try on their own to see if it fits their preferences and requirements. 

 

The only reason I knew about this Office...

MapleStory 2, explore a new dimension of MapleStory in fabulous 3D Graphics and a similar gameplay style as the original despite it being an overhead game. The ring to it sounds too good to be real, and yes it is too good to be real.

MapleStory 2 is a MMORPG for the fans of the original MapleStory, although it's not designed in that aspect it's aimed at people that like MapleStory but would like more to the story and quite a bit better graphics. Honestly the 3D visuals in MapleStory 2 is quite stunning in my point of view, it really brings out the cartoon style that the original aimed for. The music as well is basically remixes of the original MapleStory soundtrack which is what really got me going when waiting for the game to even release.

The difficulty curve in the game is quite nice, though it does indeed help to do some quests in a group, it would more than likely make some dungeons much much easier. In my honest opinion the game is insanely fun, but it's sad that not many people even make videos about it anymore or even livestream it. What I personally want to see though is more people actually playing the game as it's not as popular as ...

Welcome back to another update at Aclevo! During the past three months, we have made several improvements since our last update blog post. With the introduction of quartly updates, the results of our annual election, yet another update to the Aclevo Website, and other exciting news, we can't wait to share what's new with this one. As always, please feel free to leave your feedback in the comments section below. With further ado, let's look into the recent changes we've made: 

New Website

A current snapshot of our website as of August 3rd, 2019.

After reaching out for a few public opinions, and an internal vote, we have finally decided to redesign our entire website by updating one of our old themes, and return to using OctoberCMS as our primary content management system. We have made these decisions for a few important reasons:

  • Frinkel, the previous site owner of Aclevo, was no longer interested in hosting the website due to personal reasons that we will not disclose. In his place, Troplo will be hosting the website from now on until further notice.

  • We wanted to make sure our projects, our series, and our services are...

In our previous blog post, we pointed out that it is very easy to remove Arch Linux's package manager. (UPDATE: The blog post mentioned has been removed.) But what happens if you do, and what are the risks you are taking once you do so? Is there a way to reinstall pacman? Are you able to remove the package manager from other Arch-like distributions that use the same package manager? Are you risking borking your Linux System by uninstalling it?

Arch Linux runs fine without Pacman

I decided to try uninstalling pacman myself by installing Arch Linux in a virtual machine and removing it by itself. It is important to only remove that package though by running sudo pacman -Rd --nodeps pacman if you are a normal user, and pacman -Rd --nodeps pacman if you are in a superuser environment, or logged into as root. Running sudo pacman -R pacman will fail because there are dependencies that depend on Pacman. ATTEMPTING TO REMOVE 

Tired of having to go to your local corner store just to spend a dollar or two on a slushie? Can't get your favorite flavor because they no longer produce it? You can make your own right at home, and it is very easy to do. Choose from many different flavors by using juices from fruits and veggies, lemonade mix, sugary drinks, or add your own twist by using coffee or even chocolate milk (which does not make a milk shake, which we also have an article about). Here is a list of things you will need to get started making your own slushie:

  • A Blender that can blend Ice
  • A Freezer that can freeze Ice
  • Ice Cubes (An Ice Tray is Optional)
  • Flavor (example: Juice)

Feel free to experiment with your measurements to see what tastes best for you. However, please be sure to add enough ice to prevent your slushie from becoming too soft.

Now that you have all your ingredients ready, here are the instructions to creating a good slushie:

  1. Place all of your ingredients into a blender. Please be sure to use common sense and take products out of ...

From the little games to even bigger games GameMaker always simplifies the process of creating the vision you desire. The more you use it the more you love it as a game developer. It's one of those engines that does the work of creating level editors for you. The simple drag and drop features are great for a novice developer while the scripting language GML is great for the more advanced developer. I personally enjoy GML as it's very flexible on what you can do in your game even though it takes some getting used to. The Sprite and tile editors are very intuitive and making graphics in gms is simpler than a program like paint.net or Photoshop. Honestly gms is my go to for 2D game development and I would love to hear your opinions on it. Overall I give GMS a solid 4.5 out of 5. Mostly due to how simple it is, and the immense amount of features it holds, along with the flexibility of said features. Hope you share the same opinions I do.

Today I will be talking about the drama that Discord has been dealing with for the past month. So if you don't know the story, here it is: Discord didn't ban Cub Content. If you don't know what "Cub Content" is, it is basically Furries, but Cubs (Animal Children) and is also porn. Some of the Discord admins are Furries, so they didn't want to disrespect their community. But it has caused controversy over the past month because the policy lacked sexually explicit, underage animal-themed art.

Discord soon later fixed the policy so they could stop the controversy. They also cracked down on other types of pornography using underaged characters such as "lolicon" and "shotacon". In the aftermath of the policy update, many Discord users were thanking the Discord Staff for taking action on the issue and for their transparency moving forward, signaling a positive first step toward making changes to Trust and Safety on the platform.

My Opinion

My opinion on this issue is that Discord should have banned cub content in the first place so that they wouldn't cause a controversy among the Gaming community. Everyone is not a furry. Furries should have the ...
