  1. I'll try to keep this short Life can be pain in the butt. Many times in life you will get beat down, laughed at, or taken for granted. I know this. So I decided to make a plan on how to create a platform, community, brand that helps you in your journey in whatever you are doing. I Decided to call it MazeWorld. MazeWorld's mission is to motivate and inspire every single person to do what they truly wish to do. Now for the people that know me, sorry if I am being a little cheesy so out of the blue. But this is something that I stand for. Motivation is something really powerful that helped me to get closer to becoming the person that I wish to be. And I'd like to share this so I can inspire others to do the same. To do the things they really want to do. No excuses. As I have been planning this stuff for a while now, I decided to just take the first step and take myself up on my own advice to "just do it". So I decided to start off with a facebook page where my partner and I will daily post new motivational or inspirational posts concerning creativity, productivity and chasing your dreams. https://www.facebook.com/mazemotivation So if you could use some extra words to push you through everyday's shit, follow the page. If you know some friends who might be able to use this, share it with them. A website, youtube channel and possibly other social media channels will be coming in the future. Thank you and keep grinding! To the moderators: I didn't see any rules about this kind of "advertisement" in the off-topic section, so I hope this is not a problem. I am only trying to put some extra value out into the world.

      I had the same issue. One of those buttons leads to a place where you can download the patches manually. Download and install the small 2MB patch on the top. Worked for me after that.

    2. Elder

      Elder

      Buttons or red text. I'm not home right now, so I can't be more accurate. Sorry :)

      Sucks mate, I know how long you'd been "working on her", for lack of better metaphors.

      It's harsh, but: back to square one.

      G'luck, man.

      Mountain dew: A gamer's lifeforce.

      But yeah, I know dat feel, dude. Only time I'd prolly show any form of "shopping" in its most feminine form, would be in an electronics store.

      Njoy, though :]

      - Lith. ...Electrifying.

      But it's shite then?

      Guess I won't have to try that then.

      - Lith. ...Skip.

    2. Napsys

      Napsys

      well after getting a little better its kind of 'fun' to play but if you consider this is a sequel on another game AND took a long ass time to develop i wouldve expected something better. ofcourse its still in 2nd CBT phase, but im forced to play on low graphics to play without lag and my machine is pretty strong too.. so it doesnt even look better graphic wise either

  11. sorry to say it again but.. oh my fucking god shingeki no kyojin >.< finally an anime that has got me screaming at my screen again

      *Checks myanimelist*...mmmyup, unless there's a 2nd season of this coming along, 25 seems to be it.

    4. Joanna

      Joanna

      It's highly likely that there will be 2nd season but the manga is monthly so don't expect it soon.
