FreeOffice Suite Review

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'...

[Game Review] MapleStory 2

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...

Arch Experiments #1 — Removing Pacman

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 removi...

[Review] GameMaker Studio 2

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 s...

Discord Terms Of Service Update: Banning NSFW Cub Content

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 dow...

Blogging With A Static Blog: Static VS Dynamic Websites

In the modern age, we are experienced in using blogging platforms like WordPress, Ghost, Blogger, Tumblr, and many other dynamic website generators. However, a new trend has been moving users as they are deciding to host their websites statically instead of using their dynamic counterparts. But why are people deciding to move forward with this new trend? Is it any better to use a static website as opposed to a dynamic one in web development? Why should I consider one of these over the other?

What is a Static Website?

A static website is defined as a website that does not rely o...

LateralGM: An Open Source Alternative to GameMaker

Introduction

Let's face it, Game Maker (the one by YoYo Games) can cost a bit of money if you want to remove their branding when you publish a game. While some people are okay with having their branding on the game, others may wish to remove it without having to spend a fortune doing so. However, why pay for the software when there's an open source alternative already available that looks almost exactly like the original software. But why would you consider an open source alternative adequate?

Why LateralGM? Is it Stable?

With LateralGM, you get all of the features that Ga...
