Alright, I managed to log in as a guest.... well, I cannot really recommend this. Pretty rough production values, and a horrible translation to boot it off. Deleted.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Yuriy and I work at BlueStacks. A few weeks ago we released a feature to do live translation on any game inside BlueStacks from the game language to your system language. So if you're playing Puzzles and Dragons in Japanese but speak only English, just press the shortcut (CTRL + ALT + L) and it will translate the screen from Japanese to English.

Here's a short video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wHwX5LTWcQ

In short, just press CTRL + ALT + L in any version of Bluestacks above 4.40 and you will see the translation overlay.

We shared this with the Gacha Gaming community on Reddit and so far they've had some great feedback - https://www.reddit.com/r/gachagaming/comments/alx2m8/moderator_translation_feature_being_tested_in/

Please don't interpret this as some shilly #hailcorporate pitch. It's not something we've promoted widely as it's still in testing. We have some basic content about it but no big push. That's because we want to get more feedback from you guys and improve this before taking it to prime time.

That said, there are some obvious benefits and some clear drawbacks. The translation is shown in an overlay so any action that's happening behind the overlay cannot be seen. This is best for story content, menus, and onscreen text when you're not at risk of losing.

All feedback is welcome. Also, if this is an inappropriate post, I am very sorry, I just wanted to share this with you guys.

This is an insane undertaking and could be a pretty big deal. Woah.

The big question is how good is your security? I kept hearing the words that BlueStacks valuable to 3rd party and/or hackers. I was wondering if that's true or not? Thanks.

Hey there, thank you for sharing your concerns. What I can tell you without sounding shilly is that:

1) We do not monitor, sell, transmit, share, or otherwise monetize your data. That's not our business model and you can read all about what we collect and don't collect here - https://www.bluestacks.com/terms-and-privacy.html

2) Our founder's backgrounds are entirely security software =) Our CEO, for instance, was CTO at Mcafee prior to BlueStacks - https://www.linkedin.com/in/rosensharma/. More concrete steps we take to protect your data - we turn off by default any ability for ADB access to BlueStacks. This prevents 3rd party software from accessing the host (your computer) and the guest (BlueStacks). We also make sure that any data-in-motion is encrypted end-to-end.

Hope this helps alleviate some of your concerns. For the most part, unlike other foreign actors in this space, we'd like to think our backing from Intel, Qualcomm, Samsung, AMD, and many other top technology companies lends us some legitimacy. That said, seeing the direction some legitimate companies have gone in the recent past, I can see how concerns can still exist.

I did test this.
Avoid the game, its bad, English translation is awful.

Rerolled for one better hero (rerolling took about 3mins per reroll).
Unique names: Eventually my ingame name was Rixa32 (rates do suck).
Then grinded (a lot of grinding actually) til I could do first multi, 8% chance in multipull to get those better units. Obviously I had none, deleted the game.

Translation from Korea to English sucks badly. Its like done in ancient Babelfish translator by Altavista. Typical Korea kusoge that is bad and grindy.

Final Blade is poop.

Valkyrie Profile is three years behind.

Another Eden doesn’t allow multiple devices.

SinoAlice has woofbad gameplay.

Gacha gaming is dead.

Brown Dust is suddenly up for pre-registration on tons of global Google Play stores, here the US page. It doesn't seem to be up for iOS yet.

I've played the SEA version for a while, which is fully in English. I don't expect this to be everyone's cup of tea because it's slow and methodical, but it's definitely interesting.

Basically you assign your units positions and turn order on a grid and then let the battle play out automatically. It gets very difficult later on.

I'm inclined to quit Destiny Child after Valentine's Day banner for real. I mean, that game has good potential but the next banner is pretty bland in my eyes.

PSA: If you're still play Grand Summoners, you can summon 80 units everyday UNTIL you choose one:

Since I saw another post about this, let's all come together and post currently running events in games we play!

Grand Summoners:

x2 Login Bonus Feb 3 - ???
Forever Summons! Summon from 80+ Units EVERYDAY until you choose one! Feb 7 - April 1
GS Crystal Lotto! Chance to win up to 1000x crystals! Randomly get 50/100/1000 crystals only once. Feb 7 - Feb 14
Summoners Lotto 2: Spin to win up to 100 summons a day! Starts Feb 21
TenSura (That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime) Collab Starts Feb 14

Downloaded Clash of Knights and it just keeps saying "Failed to create user"?, anyone else have the issue?
Apk (from apkpure) worked fine.
Edit: Downloaded it to second phone, I was wondering why no tutorial battle and then I noticed I have same account now on both phones. No clue what ties it (Google play?).

Maybe there was small maintenance when you tried.

Yeah, I decided to give Langrisser another go now that I’m not having 20+ hour Auto Chess-play sessions, and it’s been quite a good time. I’m pleasantly surprised how well I’m doing only using the story characters and R rarity units, which is great. I want to reach endgame this way before spending any money, since I go full whale for gachas I’m invested in. So far though, the gameplay’s been great and I’m feeling confident I can make it.

Langrisser's real grind starts around lv 40+. I'm at a point where I have to farm Anikis gyms if I want my units to have a chance of survival. It's kinda weird cause Maps are either too easy or too hard where I'm at. Hopefully this won't last for too long.

As long as it's not literally impossible to do given enough grind, I'm okay with that. Gacha games are pretty inherently grindy anyway. I find the gameplay loop pretty compelling, to the point where I'm now looking forward to Three Houses more and recently started Wargroove because it's re-vitalized my interest in SRPGs. Also hope they localize those Langrisser remakes eventually.

I enjoyed Langrisser a good deal, but somehow fell out of love with it over night. Just couldn't muster the will to do the same daily routine until I run out of energy again. The repetition suddenly was too much.

I'm still enjoying Langrisser, but holy fuck, once you reach LVL 35 its basically a different game entirely. Also, is there no OT for it?

You get a huge powerspike at 35 with class upgrades and the legion buff, availible on both Grenier for Legion of Glory folks and Matthew for Protagonists, if you didn't pull rarer units with them. It requires a bit of team building, but it's incredibly potent.

I haven't reached that point yet because I've only had time to play it very casually but I have indeed heard that around level 35 the game starts expecting you to have faction buffs and spikes in difficulty so players who invested into a wild mix of characters either have to reconsider their team or quit out of frustration.

The game would probably benefit if it communicated the importance of faction buffs earlier on - the mechanic isn't really empathized enough (at all?) considering its importance.

As for there not being an OT, the regulars here seemed too grossed out by the launch debacle to make one I guess.

Anyway it looks like Brown Dust is aiming to release on March 7 for both Android and iOS.

I agree it ought to be better communicated. The only reason I was basically completely set for level 35+ is because I read a guide about it ahead of time and planned out what my team would look like, so I farmed the necessary resources to promote Grenier as soon as he hit 35. On one hand it makes team building stricter, on the other it makes R-rarity and story characters more viable and have niches even compared to SSRs.

I feel like it's something I've missed completely, so a link to that guide would be appreciated.

Sure, I read this Reddit guide. It goes really in-depth on the faction buffs and team building. My team is Grenier (Buff Leader), Jessica (DPS), Amelda (Healer), Aaron (Tank) and Matthew (DPS/Flex) since I wanted to only utilize free and R-rarity characters, and it’s been working out well.
