18:50:05 Chiyachan: Hmm, Wanna create the general cat chat thread 4?
18:50:20 Chiyachan: Nearly time for it and I need somebody famous/someone I like to make it.

It's that time again, we've talked too much and Chiya's getting the padlock out ready for the old thread.

So
GENERAL CAT CHAT THREAD 4.

Have fun!

Special mention to Burk and Ozzaharwood who are both clearly cats \o

Considering there are 2.2kg/pound, you do the math on how absurdly expensive that is.
Hint: its more than $40USD per pound.

Cherry season, man.

Some friends of mine own a cherry orchard in Michigan and sometimes they send down free cherries to FL... some of the laws that are in place to keep cherry prices high are crazy :/ They're required to burn/destroy 60% of their crop in order to keep up the competitive prices.

A bigmac contains 590 calories. A cup of cherries: 87(and it's among the highest ones). Yet they both contain the same amount of fiber.

Fruits may be high on sugar, but it is not sugar that is refined or processed in any way.
It is white sugar who is fucking up your body. The goal should be to eat as clean as possible. Stay away from premade shit, as far as its possible.
Fruit also contains alot of other things that is very good for your body.

You know what they say, an apple a day...:)

And I think the worst thing you can do is to fuel your body with macdonals and that sort of food. Ew.

I spent a good portion of today re-arranging shit yet again. Now I'm happy with the results (mostly)
My laptop is now on the spare desk that previously had CDs (and junk) piled high on it and my spare printer that I have now set up.

Plenty of room for shit now :)

It's pretty much an entire thread full of people being rude to Meomix then Meomix going ballistic. There's only 9 posts and one of those is a double post, so it's not like there's all that much to it. It's pretty much like this...

-I got this new tablet, anyone know any special features it has?
--good thread
---did you not bother to look into that before you bought it?
----must be your first android
-I don't read japanese and am now generally flustered from the replies thus far
--why do you expect us to help you?
---get something less dodgy
-that's not even the right link, it's called something else
-dad is stingy and your IQ is as low as the tablet's
-double post and insult? lock!

There you go. Didn't miss a thing.

Honestly, the whole thing escalated out of control really quickly.

That thread was well out of proportion really, not exactly the place to discuss life circumstances :/ but the opening question could have had more to it to make it worthwhile at least.

Eitherway ~£100 for a brand new tablet isn't all that bad really when considering that it is brand new that is.

On another note I have to thank newy for "subtly" reminding me that my avatar was too big, I totally forgot about it since Tiffany noticed it in the "Edit the Avatar Above You" thread and made a corrected version, so thank you Tiffany as well :) All sorted now anyway.

Well we would have eventually gotten to that point if it thread didn't derail into a elitist brawl.

Well the apps i would like are, remote computer connection apps, animelist apps, apps that allow you to run exe files on the tablet.

Title: Re: The General Chit Chat Thread 4
Post by: Krudda on August 03, 2014, 09:19:48 pm
You can't really do upscaling without quality loss effectively.

Try using an odd way of doing things: AviSynth.
Use the image loader and upscale via eedi3 to double or quadruple your image size, then scale to your desired resolution.
Here's the scripting needed (if you've got the tools + plugins already)

Imagesource("path to image")
eedi3_rpow2(2)
Lanczosresize(x,y)
This one doubles it. To quadruple it, use eedi3_rpow2(4) - but you need to fix chroma then

I'm glad that I'll start having vacations every week from now on.

Had kinda hard 2 weeks >_<
...for few reasons
#1 food from mess kit for 2 weeks, which pretty much means, 1 ladleful of food and 2dl of drinkables and 1 bread, 3 times a day. That was all for one day.
#2 I was able to sit for for about 2hrs per day + 8hrs for sleep from which I was able to sleep 4-6h.

#3 I they almost cancelled our weekend vacation because 24 recruits had Sarcoptes scabiei and there was no medicine available, we were ordered into quarantine by a doctor, all the conscripts AND the personel working in our company.
I'm glad they got hands on the medicine, we got to go onto our vacation.
and they extended it until monday morning 9am. 

But hell it was a huge episode, I got to sleep at 2am on fri - sat night, and it was right after our recruit camp, so, none of us had slept or eaten well and were crawling, running and digging holes all around in a forest. so the week was harsh, then we had to stay up for most of the night and pack ALL of our cloth material into plastic bags 1 article at a time except the stuff we needed for sleeping and were wearing, we packed those on the morning.
and note that, we had about 40kg of textile material per conscript. so yeah. fuck....

The small pictures where not available in a bigger quality.The biggest was 100x100.I wasn't going to upload the images but you asked to see the results.Here they are :P .

http://www.theguardian.com/culture/2014/aug/04/anime-producer-studio-ghibli-makes-its-last-film

I blame Havoc10k for this. Damn you Havoc10k. This is why we can't have nice things.

Nooooo :'(

But if their latest films are having trouble turning a profit, they must be spending a hell of a lot of money on them. Kaguya-hime grossed well over ¥2.2 billion (~$23m), which was admittedly well below expectations (it did launch at a bad time though), but I can't imagine it costing anywhere near that much. The entire budget for 5cm per second was only about ¥25 million. Kaguya-hime undoubtedly cost a lot more than most anime because of its unique animation style (which must have taken loads of work), but Ghibli's other films shouldn't, particularly.

There is no good reason that a studio that produces anime (which are far, far cheaper than an equivalent live-action work, even at the top-end of the market, like Ghibli), and which consistently sees domestic box-office figures matching, often even beating, the biggest Hollywood blockbusters, should not be making a profit. On the contrary, they should be rolling in dough. It sounds like either there's some massive mismanagement going on there, or there's something more at work behind the scenes which we don't know about.

And they have proved beyond doubt with Omoide no Marnie that they can still make great films even without Miyazaki on board. Sure, it doesn't match Spirited Away, but it is a superb film.

While great, Kaguya-hime did pretty poorly at the box office compared to previous Ghibli films, and while Omoide no Marnie looks like it'll do better, it's hard to say how much better. So maybe they go really overboard with expenses because they're used to making $100m+ per film, and now they're thinking that might stop, they want to stop and restructure everything before they waste too much money with their current system. And thus we'll see them start making films in again in a couple of years (hopefully having NOT laid off the key staff who make their films so good to begin with). That's what I'm hoping.

At the end of the day, while the golden age of Miyazaki may be over, that's no reason for Ghibli to stop making good films, and to stop making money. They're still in a much better position than most other anime studios, so there's no good business reason for them to quit now. I just hope there aren't any other reasons we don't know about...

(Sorry for the long rant. I had to try and justify it to myself. I don't think I could take it if Ghibli shut down entirely :'()

EDIT:

Not even last week. As I understand it, they only announced it yesterday.

Geez, I did say it was only rumors.

Also, anyone who paid attention to any studio ghibli documentary from the past 10 years, would have seen Miyazaki going on about how studio ghibli was going bankrupt. It was not as unexpected as everyone seems to think.

My old phone just had the worst breakdown: touchscreen doesn't work. Of all things, it was what I was most sceptical about from the beginning. And it did not help that it's a hybrid with buttons as well, since I can't even unlock the phone without the screen sweep. Never again.

Now ordered the most robust phone on this planet: Sonim XP3300 Force. No touchscreen, no bullshit.


Now I am planning on how to destroy this fragile piece of shit once I get a real phone. I think I will take it to work and run it over with a forklift, then bash it with a sledgehammer.

My old phone just had the worst breakdown: touchscreen doesn't work. Of all things, it was what I was most sceptical about from the beginning. And it did not help that it's a hybrid with buttons as well, since I can't even unlock the phone without the screen sweep. Never again.

Now ordered the most robust phone on this planet: Sonim XP3300 Force. No touchscreen, no bullshit.


Now I am planning on how to destroy this fragile piece of shit once I get a real phone. I think I will take it to work and run it over with a forklift, then bash it with a sledgehammer. Maybe I will think of something creative using an industrial robot.... or I can visit colleagues in the other department and test out their 20 ton press. Oh yeah, I will enjoy killing it.
I have this weird hunch that it isn't the phone that is at fault, since so many people can actually live with touchscreen nowadays, and it's not like we endure it not working 24/7.

Also you should consider visiting a psychiatrist if you really feel the urge to destroy your phone in such ways because the touch screen stopped working.

EDIT: Anyways, enjoy the year 2000 phone.

No, it stopped functioning. As in the touchscreen no longer detects any input. Just google "touchscreen stopped working" and you will see that hundreds of thousands people experience that problem, they just buy a new one or send in their phones for repair. Unless you suggest that my index finger is missing and I haven't noticed it.

All the expansions, then under downloads there's an update for it that fixes stuff and then under other releases you can get all the store items.

Whatever the case, I bet it's probably a copyright restriction. Are the MP3's from iTunes? You need to remove DRM first, or nothing will recognize them except iTunes with your license key proving you own the file.

I only started playing it a few days ago.

Oh and I found out that the military is actually pretty bad money-wise. You make 6k a day but you work 1 day a week. Writing is pretty insane... I started a writer and she's making like $200k a week from royalties.

All the official links give me 403 forbidden

here: https://db.tt/kNoAXMW1

What is that DLL for anyway? Some kind of driver?
Encoding software form what I can see. Not sure if right.

So basically the tablet doesn't like javascript, I think it has something to do with google removing javascript and hdm5 functionality away from google chrome a few years ago, anyway I went to a different site http://mp3cofe.com/ (http://mp3cofe.com/) and all the music files i downloaded started playing properly.

Is there a linux remote connection app that doesn't act like remote assistance software? I don't like it exposing the monitors contents on the computer I'm connecting to, Microsoft remote connect works brilliantly btw, my notebook however shall remain unconnectable.

HD colormatrix to SD colormatrix conversion plugin for AVIsynth
err, essentially, it's used when downscaling HD video to SD resolutions so I can use the correct colorimetry specifications as set by the resolution of the output video.

Yeah they're fucking boring, I really don't get it. I tried to play counterstrike once and I was bored to death. I also sucked at it but thegame  in itself wasn't exiting for me. I like games with a deep and good story and awesome characters.

Being FPS doesn't stop the game from having a deep, immersive story with great characters.  ::)

Granted, most of the FPS in the market are generic and don't really offer too much in the way of the story or characters. It's unfortunate.

Whatever the case, I can always keep going back to the early Doom games even if their stories are pretty much non-existent and thoroughly enjoy myself.  ;D

I wouldn't worry about that, Russia shot it's own foot with their baseless embargo on some EU countries, which will lead to a lot more shitstorm. At this moment Russians complain at already growing prices for all the goods under embargo, and Russia will only have gas to make money on, if they raise prices it will be their undoing because EU is working on gas from US and other sources. Russia is in more trouble economically than they realized.

Not that I care, but Russia will likely invade Ukraine under the pretext of peaceful intervention.
Either the world will finally strike at Russia once they do that or no one does anything and Russia continues on.
Although Australia announced their own sanctions today.

Shrek 4D was my first and last 3D experience. Not bad, but by the end of it I had a headache and queasy stomach. This was about ten years ago.
I've also got a game here called "Limbo" that is supposedly 3D capable, but there's no option in the menu and the fucking indie game has no manual. How do I try it in 3D?

Yes I'm positive it has 3D, or else the box wouldn't say so and supply 3D glasses.

You need a 120Hz TV for 3D to work IIRC. Perhaps it just hides the option if it can't detect one.

As for me... I've only seen a few 3D films over the years (Spy Kids 3D, some 3D film thing at Legoland, and most recently Silent Hill (Which was shit btw, as you probably expect)), but every time I've never quite been able to tell if they're actually in 3D and it's just a really subtle effect, or if my eyes are just playing tricks on me. It certainly doesn't seem big enough to be worth all the hype, or the extra expense.

Yeah, I could have phrased that better. What I mean is, I can't really tell if it's actually in 3D or not. Which probably means there's not really any difference.

Actually, I think more likely it's that I can see the 3D effect if I look in just the right way, but not otherwise, or something. I have a squint, which has always made things like that pretty difficult.

It's a beautiful film, best seen in the theater.  But since that's probably not an option now, I'd suggest watching it on a large screen TV if you can.  Like any film, it has its flaws and inaccuracies, but they didn't detract from my enjoyment of the movie.

You think? It was one of the first things I tried after arriving in Japan, since you can buy it in pretty much every convenience store here, and I was very unimpressed. But maybe the ageing makes all the difference; I'm guessing the stuff you can pick up in your local Family Mart isn't twelve years old.

Yeah, tell me about it. Was in Hamburg for a week and bought local beer over there called Holsten. It was ok as every day beer, then on evening we ordered beer in a pub and it was great. We asked what it was and the bartender said it was Holsten. We tried to disagree saying that we drank Holstein already and it was totally different. That is when we learned that what we got there was Holsten Edel ("Noble") which is way different from the cheap piss you get in Aldi and Lidl (exact words of the bartender)

There was only like 5 minutes of Clooney in the entire movie which was pretty disappointing.


Eh, if your takeaway from Gravity was this, I don't think I can have a conversation with you about this movie.  I went to see the film because of the cinematography and the incredible visuals.  While watching, I was captivated by the unique perils the astronauts faced and how they struggled to survive.  And I was moved by Sandra Bullock's character's struggle to find meaning and the will to survive in the face of an impossible situation.  The whole execution of the film impressed me -- as it obviously did other people, since the film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won 7.

It's a shame you didn't get much out of the film.  Movies are often entertaining, but it's rare that a film has an impact that stays with me for any extended period of time.  This one stuck with me.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
It's actually very simple to use, and easy to work out. Well, that is, if you've got some background use with 3D programs.
It works via a simple cage mesh system. You can also tell it which parts of the mesh to invert (make blank, as if it were a hole) and other shit, basically a normal 3D editor.

No, since 'she' is not a bundle of sticks held together by string, but rather a bunch of polygons held together by 'bones', I'd say not.

Also, I have an actual use for this. Its not just messing around.
No nickname yet, or even a name for that matter.

Hmm, I should use this, to make a .x file, and export that to pmdeditor and export that to mmm, and then create a part for the next SMA.

Edit: ah, wrong quote :P

Unfortunately the LCD digitizer and glass screen and front panel are all a single piece on the Nexus 5. The repair kit costs like $200 online apparently and it's a really long process to fix. I hear people here can fix it for ~300kuai which is around $50. I just have to be worried about them stealing my motherboard and replacing it with a fake one, which is pretty common here.

Williams had a pretty unique brand of humor and delivery.  I don't think we will get a comedian like him for quite some time, if ever.

He was a genius comedian, unlike many others that were good for a few years and stopped being interesting, he delivered all the time. His smile alone makes you smile, it was pure win.

I love America for few things.

We tell the world what to do. We make up our own rules. We spend a fucktard load of money more than anyone on shit that boosts our defenses and offenses against other human beings. People hate us for the stupidest reasons. We have the most fast food restaurants in the whole world (I think?). And we just piss people off ... God I fucking love it. Yeah, get pissed off people. The US tells you all what to do.

And on that note ... yeah ... we don't need to join the Army. I was scouted three times, twice before I became a citizen and the third after I became a citizen. I shrugged them off! Ha.

You know usually I assume people are trolling and being silly on the internet, but sometimes I wonder if people actually believe the things they type.

Silly things Non-Americans & American college kids sometimes say on the internet with a possibly serious belief:

(1.  Most people in the American military kill people.  Or better yet - most people in the military actually see combat. 
(2.  Only the American government does selfish things against the interests of the people of other nations. 
(3.  America is one of the most patriotic countries in the world.  (Personally, I think this is the most hilarious one, especially if you have learned any European history whatsoever)

Tsundere is in majority of the cases a poorly executed character archetype that just amounts to acting like a bitch to someone that they like and then resorting to violence for no good reason because "lel".

Loli are over-sexualized pre-pubescent girls (most of the time).

Harems just happen to characters who are too clueless to understand anything. At least the harem in SCHOOL DAYS was somewhat "respectable".  ;D

Fanservice then just comes to the creator pandering to the fans by different means. Sometimes it can be executed well and it's justifyable, but most of the time it's just "lol, let's throw some boobs and panty shots at them".

I don't see how any of these are particularly enjoyable aspects.  ::)

Depends what you mean by "loli" imo.

Children drawn in the cutesey anime style is going to amplify that aspect and people looking for that will love lolis.

That is a big difference from the sexualized loli in hentai or Kodomo Jikan-like anime.

Imagine what would happen if Miyu made an honest copy of herself like Ilya did :)
With Saber's personality ... She'd be all over Ilya and Shirou and that actually would be amusing :D
If Miyu would go to the lengths of stopping her copy like Ilya did, it would actually be quite amusing XD


Off to imagine it :D

It's a good thing they allow writing at all it seems, seeing as some people have problem with reading.
It would be simply easier to ban people abusing them, rather than disabling it at all.


Lets protest against ellipsis and use it once a day here.

I have to agree.  But it's not surprising.  I think if you look into the origins of any seemingly absurd rule, you'll probably find that the root cause is a whole legion of idiots who ruined things for everybody else.  I think the real lesson is, don't argue with or antagonize a mod, because you're probably not going to come out ahead.

There can be the kuudere grandma, the tsundere grandma, the motherly/oneesan grandma, the genki grandma with a loli bod, and the ditzy grandma with crippling dementia who can't remember where she is or who these people are.

So AMD released their game optimizing software and I been using it for a longer while now and have to admit it's quite useful.
Although the amount of games I have installed (over 20 ) and the amount of games supported (9 out 20 I have) is interesting.
I have to say they do add to the list of supported games steadily, which pleases me.

I find it very useful because now I just install the game, check if it's supported be re-scanning and click optimize settings for quality. The software sets settings to calculated optimum which is really good. All teh games run smoothly and visual quality is really satisfying.

Does anyone else use this software ?
It also checks for driver updates automatically and if there is, it instantly informs.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

There is legal loli and true loli.
Legal loli is over the age limit of a loli (12 I think) and has a body of a loli
True loli is loli in age and in body.

Sure, I'll wait for your friend request.
My MAL ratings are pretty much messed up though, I used to rate series from 7 to 10.
7 - Bad
8- Normal
9-  Great
10-  Perfect

And yea, I haven't bothered fixing 'em for a while because it's such a drag to rerate 200+ series

^ You know the game review site IGN? They're the subject of many gamers' ire because of the skewed way their ratings work. You can do as you please for personal ratings (like on MAL), but when it's commercial review sites in question their scoring system ought to make some sort of sense.
My own MAL average score is somewhere around 6.5-7 too :P

Speaking of loli, I want an anime that documents the moe hjinks of a group of cute old ladies in their retirement home. There can be the kuudere grandma, the tsundere grandma, the motherly/oneesan grandma, the genki grandma with a loli bod, and the ditzy grandma with crippling dementia who can't remember where she is or who these people are. They'll have Lucky Star-esque conversations about the dining hall's meatloaf and gossip over the dashing WWII vet who Gladys-chan goes to bingo night with.

It'll be the beginning of a new era.

That sounds incredibly stupid.

Personally I just love anime, my anime DLs from RSS feeds automatically, when I have some time, or simply need to watch certain series episode, I just do it.
I started watching anime around 20 years ago so it's not really that much considering the time I spent on anime, even though most of my list os from after year 2000. which was 14 years ago. It's just the evolution of internet improves grabbing stuff, makes it easier to access, so the easyness of access allows for a lot of anime watched.

I think I personally am on the better end of the stick, there are people who really have problems, 4 weeks ago in USA Facebook was inaccessible for 2 hours, people were calling 911 and were reporting it for 2 hours and complaining.

If you feel ever pity on anime fans, think about how facebook makes people retarded.
Just saying should anyone feel bad about lives lost on anime. Facebook is much younger than anime, the most addicted to it are citizens of USA.

Post by: blackhole on August 15, 2014, 07:17:29 am
Actually until I saw a simple pic on how to use it I didn't know how as well.

If you are using µTorrent it's super easy.

On toolbar you should have [add RSS feed]
To get RSS feed address all you have to do is go to a website like tokyotoshokan and click on RSS (customize)
There you can select what you're interested in, like anime, music, hentai, manga, raws etc. Just uncheck what you don't want.
At the bottom there should be "Copy this URL in to your RSS program: "
and the below line is your RSS address.
just click on add rss feed in toolbar µTorrent and paste the feed url address, you should be able to use alias for it, which is rather useful, make sure you do not automatically DL in the option below.

Once you set this up you should have a feeds list of one (at least).
For automated downloads just select one of the items in the feed and right click it for a menu, select add favorite and a new window will open called RSS downloader.
In the Favorites filter settings there will be a filter where the filename will show up.
In order to properly make it work (I use µTorrent 2.2.1) make sure all space-bars are replaced with *, also remove episode count and CRC if there is one. In filter NOT I usually leave empty
Save in is self explanatory Drive:\Destination
Feed should be automatically set to TT
Quality subject to subbing group. some just always seem to release 720p otehr you ight have to specify.
Leave everything else and go to Label, just type in Ongoing for Ongoing shows.
When a new episode appears it will automatically DL it under that label in your µTorrent Labels section.

Post by: blackhole on August 15, 2014, 09:59:16 am
I started hating grind fest as well long time ago, but now that I'm playing FF14, there is hardly much grind fest at all.

You can literally play all classes and you have to level each individually which makes perfect sense, quests help a lot for gil (money) and gear, but you get usually a lot of xp killing equal lvl (or higher if you can menage) enemies. Somewhere like 5 min's /level, dunno how much at higher levels at least but so far seems legit.

Another game worth for low grindfest is Divinity: Original Sin. I think lvl cap is 25, and you get a lot of xp for doing quests (however you wish to complete them :D) and mobs deliver lots of xp as well. 4 members in party, atm lvl 13, 10k xp per enemy. Not at all hard.

I wouldn't be able to watch anime and play games though, unless of course ... Waiting in queue for an instance/raid in WoW.
Been watching anime doing that a lot in there.

Speed plays? usually they're done not for the fun, but to prove you know the game inside out.
You NEED to know the exact placement of everything, you NEED to know the best way to defeat enemies, you NEED to know the best way to level up fast.

I don't like it much myself, but its still a fun concept.

Have you heard of people that play the "low level" style?
You take any RPG, and try to clear it before level 20 or equivalent of a 99 level capped game (so basically, about one fifth of max level)
Its hard enough to defeat the monsters at that low a level, but whats harder, is making sure you don't go OVER level, since it's very easy to do at the early levels - and you need to complete the entire game, before passing level 20 or equivalent.

I don't like it much myself, but its still a fun concept.

Have you heard of people that play the "low level" style?
You take any RPG, and try to clear it before level 20 or equivalent of a 99 level capped game (so basically, about one fifth of max level)
Its hard enough to defeat the monsters at that low a level, but whats harder, is making sure you don't go OVER level, since it's very easy to do at the early levels - and you need to complete the entire game, before passing level 20 or equivalent.

I'm not much of a speed run type either, but I do enjoy watching it sometimes. What I really don't enjoy is how a lot of the fastest ones rely on knowing all the EXPLOITS that speed your game up (skipping enemies and areas by getting yourself through a wall, etc.). They just feel cheap to me.

As for the RPG thing, I've not heard of it before now. I think it's doable in certain games, but it entirely depends on the game's mechanics.

I usually have something as background noise as well, but that's usually Youtube videos or podcasts. If it's a very story heavy piece of entertainment, I'll focus on that instead. Anime in the background just doesn't work for me.
I'm the opposite.
Maybe it's ADD or some other weird thing, but I almost have an issue focusing on something WITHOUT another thing there.

It's horrible for me to try and read books/comics/manga/etc without SOME kind of music or what have you.

Same goes for playing most video games.
Unless it's something mood specific (like Silent Hill 2), I just have a problem focusing without another thing to occupy my ears.

Hmm, OK. Comparing my RWBY DVD (NTSC) with my RWBY blu-ray, I see the DVD is a real mess. How the hell did I ever enjoy this show in this poor crap quality?

/me begins ripping blu-ray in order to transcode his own MPEG-2 files.

Hmm, now what to do about menu's. I could just rewrite the cells, actions, jumppads and navpoints, or I could copy the existing menu and remultiplex, or I could create my own. Hmm.
Option 1 is the same effect as option 2, and option 2 is far easier, but option 3 gives me choices :D

I'll be back laterz

Ah~ Before anybody asks "why the fuck are you creating a DVD, if you've already got the blu-ray?"
Sometimes I'm not always in a position to use the blu-ray, nor play back via encoded file, so a DVD comes in handy. Especially when going to friends' houses who don't have a blu-ray player or computer yet :o

The DVD I've currently got is pretty bad, much so aliasing, blurry, etc etc. I know the show mostly looks like that to begin with, but since I'm scaling it down, I can filter it and "fix" most of it to my own liking :D

Now just the big question. 720x480, or 704x480. 704x480 is the proper ratio, but its ultimately lower resolution, and scaling anamorphically, won't look much different to 720x480.
We'll see how big each individual file turns out, I guess.

Yeah, the artwork is always gorgeous in these films, but the director is a douche. Instead of expecting us to figure out, what the fuck is going on for ourselves, how about explaining just the most basic shit, like, I dunno... What the fuck is the point?
Seriously, two episodes in, and all I know is theres a girl who got a new computer... And friends are dying. Or something, I dunno for sure as nothing makes sense yet.

I feel teh same when I play some old games, I don't know why new modern games don't recieve as much attention story-wise, and often don't even get enough attention for gameplay, and only graphics count. It's sad, most games are nice looking with 10+gigs of data, and almost nothing to do.

I recently played Settlers 2 10 year anniversary, I loved the simply updated graphics with the gameplay only altered to make use of the update, but everything else is intact :)

I'll admit, most new games are recycled garbage, but that doesn't mean there aren't some good ones in there. You've just got to stop getting 'everything' because you can, and instead choose only the stuff you expect to be really good. Sometimes this means reviewing the material before you get it.

Saying 'where's the advanced A.I.' is showing a LOT of ignorance on HOW games are made.

The vast majority of A.I. in games are actually DUMB DOWN because, if they weren't, they'd get one-hit kills EVERY TIME.

Plus, it's a LOT easier, and costs a LOT less, to make something LOOK nice than it does to make use of advanced A.I.

There's also the issue of finding people that can actually DO that.






Maybe time to put your nostalgia glasses down. There are good games and bad games, always have been, always will be. If you choose to just look at the stuff that falls into your "omg new games are all crap" then you're going to miss the enjoyable ones.
So much this.
I've been gaming for the better part of two decades now and, looking back, I've also found myself falling into the 'nostalgia glasses'.

Older games were 'harder' because they were focused on emulating that arcade feel.
By that I mean, they wanted your quarters so they would be made UNFAIRLY hard.

Play the Mario games as they came out.
The start off with REALLY shitty controls, all floating and what have you with cheap deaths, until Nintendo dropped the arcade and improved the controls because they didn't GIVE A SHIT about any kid's quarters.


I like new games.
I like being about to save WHENEVER I LIKE.
I like not dying because I DIDN'T COUNT THE PIXELS for a jump.
I like being about to shoot at something and KNOW it's going to HIT IT.
I like not restarting a level BECAUSE OF A GLITCH.


Sure, there's stuff like DLC and abuse of assholes like EA/Ubisoft, but I'll take the good with the bad.

And what, pray tell, would you count as 'better' other than apparently wanting 'a thousand features' and 'intelligent AI'?

Making a game more complicated doesn't instantly make it better. Not every game needs any form of intelligent AI. And not every modern game is focused on making things 'shiny'.

And, there are MANY modern games that ARE better than the classic ones.

Doom '3' (or whatever they called the last Doom remake/reboot/whatever) was better than the original.
FF8 was better than FF1.
God Hand was better than the original Double Dragon.
Contra 4 was better than most of the previous Contra games.
LoZ: Wind Waker was better than the first LoZ.
etc/etc/etc/etc.
Metal Gear Solid was WAY better than Metal Gear.
Mario Kart 8 is insanely better than Mario Kart.
Time Splitters 3 is better than most FPS released before it.
Dragon's Crow is better than Altered Beast.
Ni No Kuni is better than most JRPGs.
Sleeping Dogs is better than GTA4/3/1.
Stars Wars: Empire At War is better than WarCraft 1/2, Dune 2000.
etc/etc/etc/etc.


You should care about the cost, because logistics MATTER.
Sure, some companies SQUANDER their resources (SEE: EA/Ubisoft) but there ARE many companies out there TRYING to innovate with the money and time they have.

I enjoy playing a lot of the older games that I've played in the past because I find replay value in them thanks to their (sometimes outdated, but fun) mechanics.

When it comes to newer games, I usually just play them for the plot and never go back to them again. If the game has branching paths and multiple endings, I'll just play through the game as I would normally, get an ending and never really touch the game again. While I like branching stories, I prefer linearity most of the time.

Whatever the case, saying that games are worse nowadays is just an extremely stupid exaggeration. /thread

Who said this? Is this from another thread? Is my english so bad that it ruined your eyes?

Some of the modern games you talk about aren't modern. It's great that games like FF8 and Ni No Kuni  have better AI than "at 80% hp use x spell and at 10% use y". I forgot the wonderful foes of Timesplitters that seemed to predict your thoughts instead of just sitting there and shooting but then again it was on ps2.

I'm currently playing Deus Ex:Human revolution( a great game) with the commentary track and I keep hearing about  the limitations of the engine. How they had trouble setting a scene where someone shoots a scientist and sends him over a railing. Or how with their current skeletons they couldn't create fat people. Or how a conversation involving more than 2 people isn't possible.
Skyrim another great game. Set difficulty to hardest. Shoot an arrow to someones head that doesn't kill him. 2 minutes of crouching later "It must have been my imagination".
Demon Souls 2. There's a boss strategy guide that goes something like this "as soon as you enter wait 7 secs, move at edge of platform, wait 1 sec and then dodge".

Well, I think this year's Game of the Year should go to Divinity: Original Sin.
I have incredible fun playing this game, although I have to admit some games have pretty awesome mechanics but everything else makes them complete shit. Currently playing FF14 and damn I love swapping my classes whenever needed (outside combat of course) and the need to level each class individually anyway is just gold.
"Hey! We need a healer!"
*poof*
"Over Here !"

Awesome, the game does have a few quirks but it's bearable.

I also had a lot of fun playin ME1, ME3 also had a nice battle system but then again, the ending, FU!
Dragon Age 2 story and combat was a disappointment, but Bethany was GOLD!
The only games I keep playing and keep playing and keep playing are FF6/FFT/7/9/X-2, Wariors series, Atelier series (ps2) and many more PS2 games, and PS1 as well. My PC games folder is 41 gigs (including a few games from steam) and myt console games folder is 352 gigs of isos.

Post by: Bob2004 on August 18, 2014, 07:51:50 am
I'm not sure if TES is the best series to talk about anything.

Actually, it's probably the best series to demonstrate why his claim that modern games are all shit because they don't have "thousands of features" or "intelligent AI" is stupid. Pretty much the entire design philosophy of TES can be summed up as "thousands of features and intelligent AI", in fact - trying to create a big, living world with loads and loads of things to do, and other inhabitants who live there and go about their lives, responding intelligently to the actions of the player and other AI entities.

But, because it's not any easier to program these things than it was ten years ago, it all ends up as a not-entirely-finished, unpolished, buggy mess. Programming a thousand features takes a lot of time, and is very difficult. Programming intelligent AI which can react appropriately is even more difficult - effectively impossible, in fact. Skyrim's AI is actually really, really good - it's just the game is so ridiculously complex that there's no way even the best AI the developers could reasonably be expected to produce could ever hope to react realistically. And of course some compromises had to be made to keep it fun to play - the fact hostile NPCs who've detected you forget again after a while is one of those. It wouldn't be hard to keep them alert longer (you can probably change it yourself with mods), but it wouldn't be as fun, because one mistake would screw you over entirely.

Basically, what I'm saying is that you have unrealistic expectations. Games are no better nor worse then they were ten or twenty years ago; they are bigger and more complicated, in general, thanks to computers being more powerful, but they can't possibly be as good as you seem to want them to be in order to match your nostalgia-tinted memory of old games.

Go and play Daggerfall for a while, then go and play Skyrim again, and then come back here and tell us that modern games are worse than old games.

How about you go back and tell me where I said that?
Skyrim is how modern games should be. Intricate, huge and with well thought out. I'm still amazed you could do the bucket trick. A NPCs FOV being blocked by a bucket placed on his head is not a bug. It's damn good programming.

Post by: Krudda on August 18, 2014, 10:29:02 am
Atari games were awesome in their time, and still are.

As for "quality of games" its actually true and purposeful. Companies exist to make money. Making a game you can play over and over, seemingly never tiring of it, is not very good business practise is it.

Gaming budgets have also dropped significantly since 2007 or so for 95% of the titles. The rest 5% have risen to ridiculous levels instead. That's why we have so much kickstarters and the like.

Atari games were awesome in their time, and still are.

As for "quality of games" its actually true and purposeful. Companies exist to make money. Making a game you can play over and over, seemingly never tiring of it, is not very good business practise is it.

It's crap like this is why I don't play games anymore, ignoring my health concerns (-_-メ) instead of giving me your corporate bullshit how about you make a good game for once that doesn't make me feel like shit? Why is it that i have to go to the eastern market just to find a good game to play? And I'm not talking about those jrpgs, maybe if we let shitty companies go out of business and support kickstarters instead we wouldn't be having this much trouble.

Every time I think of Kickstarter I think of this asshole in the local music scene here who's had a history of ripping people off over the internet over music stuff (often went on message boards and "sold" fancy vintage guitars then, upon accepting thousands of dollars through Paypal, would ship a slip of paper and use the shipping confirmation to "prove" he held up his end of the bargain) and how he had a Kickstarter to fund his band's next crappy release. I'm guessing the few poor saps who gave money still haven't gotten anything out of it to this day, and he's still around last I saw (though he still got arrested and spent some time for other stuff I think, I've heard he also stole from his own ex-bandmates and even family and pawn their instruments, shady af dude).

Yeah, pages and pages of legalese penned by corporate lawyers essentially stating they only provide the platform and are not liable for what other people do with it. Also a lot of people probably think so much good stuff has successfully come from crowdfunding that it's not worth it to scrap the whole system just to stop a bunch of tiny scammers currently flying under the radar. Most of these scammers I imagine are really small-scale anyway that it's probably not worth the paid man-hours required to fully investigate some dude who raised just $1k for, idk, pressing his crappy band's record that never actually got made

I just read that earlier this May was the very first case ever of an actual consumer protection lawsuit against a guy for his Kickstarter project that never delivered, I think he had raised something like $25k two years ago for a card game

BBT accepted doujin (http://bakabt.me/156336-touhou-bougetsushou-silent-sinner-in-blue.html) stuff since 2010, probably even before that. EDIT: also, I recall SeventyX7 only uploads doujins or something.

what isn't accepted is fanworks, which is what that thing technically is.

not sure though, hadn't read the Wiki (http://wiki.bakabt.me/index.php/Main_Page) in years.

also, The ones with Yuuhei Satellite is better IMO. although it's plagued with samefacesyndrome all the same like most anime. can't blame em though, animation takes a lot of work.

How about you go back and tell me where I said that?
Skyrim is how modern games should be. Intricate, huge and with well thought out. I'm still amazed you could do the bucket trick. A NPCs FOV being blocked by a bucket placed on his head is not a bug. It's damn good programming.

OK:

All modern games deserve a huge fuck you. Old games were limited by hardware. Where are the thousand features and intelligent AI? Ah but look how pretty they are. Shiny and shit. A shooter where you can't jump and your enemies just run straight at you ellipse visuals!

I think that is quite clear, no?

All games should be well thought out and developed properly.
I'll take American McGees Alice Madness returns as an example:
Gameplay-4/10
Audio-8/10
Plot-10/10

they explicitly explained that they wanted to focus more on presenting the story so teh gameplay is mediocre, you have 4 weapons, and Alice changes her costume in every chapter, which is really nice. But I got hooked on teh story so hard I completed teh game in a single sitting (whole day) and it felt awesome completing it.

I really prefer a good story and at least mediocre gameplay design over extremely good graphics.

True, I'm not a fan of fancy graphics, though I do appreciate them, I like a game that is not a mindless shooter, a grind in hack'n'slash or an xp farming in rpg games, so long as there is actually a decent story driving the game, I can cope with all that.

To be honest making a better game in modern times is not much harder than in old times, you have more powerful computers so it should be easier, the problem is with coders, either they became lazier or stupider, or both.

Coding and programming isn't any more difficult than it was back then, in fact it's easier because better solutions have been developed over the years, so AI programming is not much more difficult.

I also have to disagree about game budget being low, I've seen low budget games being 10 times better than Skyrim or any other grand design game you can name, look at Witcher, the game had a so small budget it took around 10 years to make it, and they pretty much owned the genre of the year, and now there is 3 games out. Then again look at Duke Nukem Forever, the franchise got butchered, even with the time they took to make it, simply to butcher it. Mass Efefct 1 was an awesome game, but then in ME2 and ME3 EA grabbed it and they completely ruined the game story wise (although ME3 had still better gameplay than ME2)

It's not a subject of budget, but how well you develop a game that spins the threads of success.

She is at fault for 'bribing' them and they are at fault for accepting said 'bribes'. Neither of the sides is innocent in the least.

Besides this, she's putting out accusations on harassment without any concrete evidence - a post or two (on a forum that she would've never gone to) of calling her a cunt or whatever doesn't really amount to harassment.

But now it's more mysterious than ever....
Actually after weeks on, Windows just has to shut down, I had a PC on for 6 days earlier, and it had an unexpected reboot, while I was simply browsing web, north bridge overheated for some reason. Haven't happened for a moth now yet,we'll see if windows wants to play silly again.
The last time I checked my uptime before the last time I restarted it (not whatever happened recently) was at 150 days... that's 3,600 hours. In fact, I've frequently had computers on for months at a time with no problem.

The overall gist is that the creator of Depression Quest, Zoe Quinn, has been sleeping with people to prevent bad press and to get favourable articles.
And that's shocking because ???

Honestly, it's internet fame we are talking about, I don't spend much time (if at all) on youtube, I don't even know who zoe quinn is, one trolling leads to another, save yourself teh time and stop using youtube and facebook so much because you'll be like those guys in USA that called 911 because they lost FB service for 2 hours.

I twitch every time I hear the word "antisocial" used as if it meant "asocial". Antisocial applies tp any behaviors that either lacks consideration for the welbeing of others or that are actively trying to harm them. Antisocial is the opposite of prosocial which is when you mean to help others. "Asocial" is the word for when you are avoiding social interaction altogether.

More and more I've found the term antisocial to be kind of wrong.  As I've worked with more prisoners - who are generally labeled as "anti-social," the more I've come to realize they aren't anti-social at all - they're pro-social in a society different from the mainstream one.  Usually gangs or just poor neighborhoods.

Right, they've got their own subculture (or even counter-culture); to 'normal' members of society it seems weird that they don't follow the 'normal' conventions, and then get called 'a(nti)-social' because of it... even if they are fully active in their own little 'hood

Well it depends why they got incarcerated. I don't think people who got in jail for selling pot should automatically be considered anti-social but rapists and murderers, definitely yes.

The Stone-Cutter

Once upon a time there lived a stone-cutter, who went every day to a great rock in the side of a big mountain and cut out slabs for gravestones or for houses. He understood very well the kinds of stones wanted for the different purposes, and as he was a careful workman he had plenty of customers. For a long time he was quite happy and contented, and asked for nothing better than what he had.

Now in the mountain dwelt a spirit which now and then appeared to men, and helped them in many ways to become rich and prosperous. The stone-cutter, however, had never seen this spirit, and only shook his head, with an unbelieving air, when anyone spoke of it. But a time was coming when he learned to change his opinion.

One day the stone-cutter carried a gravestone to the house of a rich man, and saw there all sorts of beautiful things, of which he had never even dreamed. Suddenly his daily work seemed to grow harder and heavier, and he said to himself: 'Oh, if only I were a rich man, and could sleep in a bed with silken curtains and golden tassels, how happy I should be!'

And a voice answered him: 'Your wish is heard; a rich man you shall be!'

At the sound of the voice the stone-cutter looked round, but could see nobody. He thought it was all his fancy, and picked up his tools and went home, for he did not feel inclined to do any more work that day. But when he reached the little house where he lived, he stood still with amazement, for instead of his wooden hut was a stately palace filled with splendid furniture, and most splendid of all was the bed, in every respect like the one he had envied. He was nearly beside himself with joy, and in his new life the old one was soon forgotten.

It was now the beginning of summer, and each day the sun blazed more fiercely. One morning the heat was so great that the stone-cutter could scarcely breathe, and he determined he would stay at home till the evening. He was rather dull, for he had never learned how to amuse himself, and was peeping through the closed blinds to see what was going on in the street, when a little carriage passed by, drawn by servants dressed in blue and silver. In the carriage sat a prince, and over his head a golden umbrella was held, to protect him from the sun's rays.

'Oh, if I were only a prince!' said the stone-cutter to himself, as the carriage vanished round the corner. 'Oh, if I were only a prince, and could go in such a carriage and have a golden umbrella held over me, how happy I should be!'

And the voice of the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard; a prince you shall be.'

And a prince he was. Before his carriage rode one company of men and another behind it; servants dressed in scarlet and gold bore him along, the coveted umbrella was held over his head, everything heart could desire was his. But yet it was not enough. He looked round still for something to wish for, and when he saw that in spite of the water he poured on his grass the rays of the sun scorched it, and that in spite of the umbrella held over his head each day his face grew browner and browner, he cried in his anger: 'The sun is mightier than I; oh, if I were only the sun!'

And the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard; the sun you shall be.'

And the sun he was, and felt himself proud in his power. He shot his beams above and below, on earth and in heaven; he burnt up the grass in the fields and scorched the faces of princes as well as of poorer folk. But in a short time he began to grow tired of his might, for there seemed nothing left for him to do. Discontent once more filled his soul, and when a cloud covered his face, and hid the earth from him, he cried in his anger: 'Does the cloud hold captive my rays, and is it mightier than I? Oh, that I were a cloud, and mightier than any!'

And the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard; a cloud you shall be!'

And a cloud he was, and lay between the sun and the earth. He caught the sun's beams and held them, and to his joy the earth grew green again and flowers blossomed. But that was not enough for him, and for days and weeks he poured forth rain till the rivers overflowed their banks, and the crops of rice stood in water.  Towns and villages were destroyed by the power of the rain, only the great rock on the mountain side remained unmoved. The cloud was amazed at the sight, and cried in wonder: 'Is the rock, then, mightier than I? Oh, if I were only the rock!'

And the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard; the rock you shall be!

And the rock he was, and gloried in his power. Proudly he stood, and neither the heat of the sun nor the force of the rain could move him. 'This is better than all!' he said to himself. But one day he heard a strange noise at his feet, and when he looked down to see what it could be, he saw a stone-cutter driving tools into his surface. Even while he looked a trembling feeling ran all through him, and a great block broke off and fell upon the ground. Then he cried in his wrath: 'Is a mere child of earth mightier than a rock? Oh, if I were only a man!'

And the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard. A man once more you shall be!'

And a man he was, and in the sweat of his brow he toiled again at his trade of stone-cutting. His bed was hard and his food scanty, but he had learned to be satisfied with it, and did not long to be something or somebody else. And as he never asked for things he had not got, or desired to be greater and mightier than other people, he was happy at last, and heard the voice of the mountain spirit no longer.

But when he reached the little house where he lived, he stood still with amazement, for instead of his wooden hut was a stately palace filled with splendid furniture, and most splendid of all was the bed, in every respect like the one he had envied. He was nearly beside himself with joy, and in his new life the old one was soon forgotten.

It was now the beginning of summer, and each day the sun blazed more fiercely. One morning the heat was so great that the stone-cutter could scarcely breathe, and he determined he would stay at home till the evening. He was rather dull, for he had never learned how to amuse himself, and was peeping through the closed blinds to see what was going on in the street, when a little carriage passed by, drawn by servants dressed in blue and silver. In the carriage sat a prince, and over his head a golden umbrella was held, to protect him from the sun's rays.

'Oh, if I were only a prince!' said the stone-cutter to himself, as the carriage vanished round the corner. 'Oh, if I were only a prince, and could go in such a carriage and have a golden umbrella held over me, how happy I should be!'

And the voice of the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard; a prince you shall be.'

And a prince he was. Before his carriage rode one company of men and another behind it; servants dressed in scarlet and gold bore him along, the coveted umbrella was held over his head, everything heart could desire was his. But yet it was not enough. He looked round still for something to wish for, and when he saw that in spite of the water he poured on his grass the rays of the sun scorched it, and that in spite of the umbrella held over his head each day his face grew browner and browner, he cried in his anger: 'The sun is mightier than I; oh, if I were only the sun!'

And the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard; the sun you shall be.'

And the sun he was, and felt himself proud in his power. He shot his beams above and below, on earth and in heaven; he burnt up the grass in the fields and scorched the faces of princes as well as of poorer folk. But in a short time he began to grow tired of his might, for there seemed nothing left for him to do. Discontent once more filled his soul, and when a cloud covered his face, and hid the earth from him, he cried in his anger: 'Does the cloud hold captive my rays, and is it mightier than I? Oh, that I were a cloud, and mightier than any!'

And the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard; a cloud you shall be!'

And a cloud he was, and lay between the sun and the earth. He caught the sun's beams and held them, and to his joy the earth grew green again and flowers blossomed. But that was not enough for him, and for days and weeks he poured forth rain till the rivers overflowed their banks, and the crops of rice stood in water.  Towns and villages were destroyed by the power of the rain, only the great rock on the mountain side remained unmoved. The cloud was amazed at the sight, and cried in wonder: 'Is the rock, then, mightier than I? Oh, if I were only the rock!'

And the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard; the rock you shall be!

And the rock he was, and gloried in his power. Proudly he stood, and neither the heat of the sun nor the force of the rain could move him. 'This is better than all!' he said to himself. But one day he heard a strange noise at his feet, and when he looked down to see what it could be, he saw a stone-cutter driving tools into his surface. Even while he looked a trembling feeling ran all through him, and a great block broke off and fell upon the ground. Then he cried in his wrath: 'Is a mere child of earth mightier than a rock? Oh, if I were only a man!'

And the mountain spirit answered: 'Your wish is heard. A man once more you shall be!'

And a man he was, and in the sweat of his brow he toiled again at his trade of stone-cutting. His bed was hard and his food scanty, but he had learned to be satisfied with it, and did not long to be something or somebody else. And as he never asked for things he had not got, or desired to be greater and mightier than other people, he was happy at last, and heard the voice of the mountain spirit no longer.

If you honestly think that someone is logging in and out so that you don't see him/her online, you need to take a chill pill xD. I for one tend to close the BBT tab quite often, I just don't see the point in keeping it open all day; I sure as hell don't purposefully log in and out so people don't see I'm online.

They don't have Rooster Teeth anymore so they don't have RvB iirc. Bro Team is also leaving Machinima. Imo, SNI isn't even good anymore since the animations were taken off. So, I guess they're losing talent.

I played the original Guild Wars since it was alpha... I had PvP accounts at ranks 11, 10, and five rank 9's (I liked the tiger, thought the phoenix looked stupid -- had I known there'd be a dragon eventually I would have just gotten to r15 instead)... I wasn't just a PvPer either, I also had just about every 15k armor & FoW on every class in the game, except Dervish, Paragon, Ritualist, and Assassin... I didn't much care for those first 3 classes, and I just didn't like the FoW available for the Assassin... I also had all kinds of rare weapons... crystalines, ethereal, tormented, blah blah blah... I was also in or leader of a top 10 PvP guild my entire time on GW, at some points even top 5, top 3, or #1.

I brought my entire top 10 GvG guild over to GW2, bringing the band back together and such... Shit, I have so many crazy rare names... even the guild name is an extremely popular one word guild name that even I'm amazed I managed to snag, but I was pretty fast.

Long story short? The PvE is subpar and grindy. You can't just do the story, you have to grind out every single area before you can continue with your main quest. Not only that, but there aren't even real quests... it's just dynamic event bullshit that you have to run around like a chicken with your head cut off trying to find. Then there's the retardation that you can be 2 levels above the mobs you're fighting and then you level up and suddenly it downlevels you to 4 levels below and you get stomped.

Of course, the PvP story is even worse because the PvP in GW2 is a total joke. Absolute garbage. Out of my entire guild that I brought over to GW2, I don't think any of us play the game anymore... Whenever I log in once every few months my guild list is just offline for weeks and months, and there were a lot of us... I got the best original GW PvPers from multiple top 10 guilds.

The game sucks. If you have any idea what Guild Wars is then you know it sucks. If all you've ever played is WoW and that's what you go in expecting then it's average, at best.

The controls are clunky and practically carpel tunnel waiting to happen. They should have gotten a better active combat system like TERA, or Vindictus, but instead it falls absolutely short. What's more, everything that made the original GW good was cut out of GW2 in favor of the casual players. It was so dumbed down that it made the game suck. You don't even get skills anymore... the original GW was like MTG with so many builds and secondary professions and great (or terrible) combinations you could have in groups... and in GW2 it's just utter crap. Your weapon is your skills, and their attempt at breaking the paradigm of tank/mid/healer just completely fucked everything even worse.

I could go on for days about how shitty the game is but I'm tired of typing and I have better shit to do. Take it from me though, the game is awful.

To its credit however, it is B2P (as GW has always been), which is how games should be.

I'll say this about GW2 - I liked it.  I also came from GW1 expected that and was somewhat disappointed it wasn't more of the same.  GW1 was incredibly unique and I loved every moment of it.  There were so many different ways to play the game and goals to achieve and GW2 lacked a lot of that.

I'd say GW2 was a lot more casual and like Tiffanys said, it was grindy.  It wasn't a perfect game but it was a good mmo to play through once or twice with different characters imo.  It just wasn't one that you could sink in hundreds of hours over and over doing the same stuff over and over like other typical mmos.

Also, I wish a good publisher would handle vindictus.  Nexon ruins that game so hard and is the sole reason I don't play it anymore.  Loved every minute of my hammer Fiona in that game though.  Great combat - marred by terrible servers and constant random maintenance.

I actually liked guild Wars 2 and GW1.

However i was disappointed on so many trivial things it's silly.
Story, or should I say, personal story, because depending on your class and initial settings your story will be somewhat different, but not by much, is decent to a point. A point where once it happens, you wish it didn't.

Instances are something to ................stay away from.
Every enemy in the instance has the possibility to literally kick you out of the room like 100 meters! away, initially it was fixed from one hit killing you, then it was 50 meter knock back, and now it's either knockback around 20 meters for some reason, and then it's knockdown.

You can literally take the role of Tank/DPS/Healer with I think every class. Depending on weapon equipped and sub weapon (or shield/focus/dagger) your skills will change. I actually liked that part of the game but the amount of skills is really lacking.

Your stats and your gear focus is what it's at actually.
You can gear yourself with tanking gear, healing gear or dpsing gear, the stats for periodic damage dealt is very important to DPS's initially but in reality Tanks also need it high. If you have a HoT healing spell you can also use that stat for it, I think Only elementaler and ranger have such healing skills actually.

As for instancing again, there are 3 modes.
Story Mode (easy)
NEVER SOLO IT, GATHER A FULL PARTY!!!!

Normal mode (Medium)
As above, and better be level capped, and have best gear you can craft for yourself. Socketed with best possible shit you can buy on auction house.

Hard mode (Insane)
You will die ... a lot ... more than you can cry.

The game sucks. If you have any idea what Guild Wars is then you know it sucks. If all you've ever played is WoW and that's what you go in expecting then it's average, at best.

I played the first one and enjoyed it greatly. I also enjoyed the second one. It never really felt grindy to me because I just ran around, minding my own business and doing the occasional event that I came across. Powerleveling was never my thing.

Oh, and the PvE in GW1 was definitely far worse than in GW2. It required plenty more grinding, but at least vanquishing felt satisfying.

And on a final note, I've got to agree with the skill system: It's been dumbed down signifficantly. I liked my MTG-like build making.  :(

You have no fucking idea what you're talking about.

In GW you could beat the entire game at level 1. You could go straight through all the missions. There was zero grinding. The only grind were titles and that wasn't even a part of the game, that was just an extra time sink for people that wanted it. You could easily get to the max level in a day and you could get the best armor (stat-wise) even before you were level 2 if you got ran to the higher level areas (e.g. droks).

Ugh... I'm not even going to get into it, I've got work to do.

How aren't titles a part of the game when, in fact, they are a part of the game?  ::)

Yeah, you CAN get the best armour and complete the entire game at Level 1 IF you SKIP content. This seems very counterintuitive. Just because you can skip to later parts of the game with the aid of another player and get yourself boosted or whatever does not make the PvE any less grindy. Just because you can powerlevel and skip content does not make the game any less grindy. ::)

What this seems to me is that you're just too full of yourself and your powergaming to accept a differing opinion.  ;D

Post by: SeventyX7 on August 21, 2014, 04:33:37 pm
That's what she is talking about, though, Supai.  In GW2 if you want to level up a new character, you have to run through EVERYTHING and do EVERYTHING.  There isn't much you can do to "skip content" like you can in GW1.  Some people want to do that after the first char.

For me that is when I quit GW2.  I had my high level warrior but I wanted to try mesmer but I got bored trying to get it high level.

Sure, I get that. However, the second game never felt grindy to me while the first one did a lot of the time.

In order for an MMORPG to work, it generally needs a community.  The gameplay/story is typically sub-par compared to normal rpgs so the social/community aspect has to be strong.

That's why I never even try an mmo unless I can get a couple friends to try it with me.

As long as there's a community to go to, I'm a fairly avid mmo player. If, however, I don't get into one. I kind of bugger off at around level 20 as well, once I figure out the gist behind the mechanics.

At the moment, I'd say FFXIV has me kind of hooked. But I'm basically at the point in the game where unless I make raiding a my second full time job, I don't actually have all that much left to do in it.

Just because you can skip to later parts of the game with the aid of another player and get yourself boosted or whatever does not make the PvE any less grindy. Just because you can powerlevel and skip content does not make the game any less grindy. ::)

What this seems to me is that you're just too full of yourself and your powergaming to accept a differing opinion.  ;D
No, you're just a moron. First of all, all the titles weren't even added until something like Nightfall, which was the third game... secondly, they're completely optional. You do not have to do them. In GW2 nothing is optional. If you don't do literally everything you cannot continue. What's more, it has nothing to do with "power leveling." You could easily get to level 20 in a day in GW through normal play, especially with the expansions like Factions.

You do understand what grind is, right?

In GW you could reach max level and get the best gear very early on. It may not be the prettiest gear but it would be identical to the most expensive stat-wise. The game was designed that way to completely avoid grind. You wouldn't be working towards something because you had to but because you wanted it, it was optional. You think vanquishing was grindy? Some people never vanquished not even once and beat the entire game. In fact, some people stopped after their first 1.5k set of max armor and never bought more aesthetic 15k armors. They didn't have to. That's the entire point. When something is entirely optional it isn't grind.

Not only is GW2 a total grindfest... You have to grind every single area after every story mission, but you don't even have a structured system guiding you... you're just expected to go off and wonder around and do whatever you want. Some people like that, it's one of the big selling points of games like Oblivion & Skyrim, but it's not the traditional structure of how a proper MMO works and personally I hate it. I need structure... I don't like to explore or find random things to do. I like having stuff laid out for me in a linear fashion. That isn't even the problem though, it's the grind. If you could go through from one main quest mission to the next without having to level up 3-5 levels to do the next then it would be fine. The problem is that the personal mission content doesn't scale to your level. In GW you could go straight through the main quest regardless of your level. At some point stuff would begin to get really difficult if you weren't high enough level and didn't have good enough gear, but you could do it. More often than not though you would level up and get gear progressively with the missions so you'd be at the right place by the time you got there and you didn't really have to worry about it. That's how a game should be designed... Not big road blocks forcing players to grind through all of the content out there, clearing entire areas, just because the devs were too fucking lazy to make a proper game.

In GW2 you can power level yourself from 1-80 in like 2 days, with breaks for food, sleep and shit.
It's so ridiculously easy it pains, even faster if you form a party with some people as the xp is increased for party playing.
Random gear drops are literally better than what you can get from quests as well (lol)

And for the record. End Game quest reward is awesome, just google a movie on youtube, best justice ever in game.

The grindfest is like this:
area lvl 1-5
farm till lvl 6, go to next stop.
6-9/10
farm till 10/11 (depending where you went)
10-15 farm till 16 and so on.
To level to 20 is actually an hour work, after that the xp is higher to level but still doable to 80 within a day or two.
After that you just craft your gear, and start doing instance, never before.
Once you start doing shit in your personal story, you can have some more fun.

Once again. End Game quest rocks.
The game is playable for just some time, after a while it gets killed by itself.

That's the point though - you're saying if you no-life the game you can force yourself to 80 with dozens of hours of unpleasantness.

In GW 1 [aside from the first campaign], you hit max level in 5 hours tops.  That's the one thing GW1 has done better than perhaps any other mmo - 99% of the game IS the end game, the awesome part of the game every mmo floats in front of your face like a carrot on a stick.

Actually you can take it very slow and still cap lvl within 6 days, I took it really slow and done it in 7 days while doing crafting in the mean time.
It's really that easy in GW2.
Do personal quest, and party level up.
I started patching the game now (after 2 years almost) so if you need some help just ask. I'll warn you though, with my night work, I'm usually only online between 5-8:30 pm unless I'm off work for 2 days then i'm up all night, until 31st august at least, then I'm probably moving to a new job.

I don't care about the specifics or what critics have to say about games/anime/movies in general, I play/watch something, and if I enjoy it, I'll continue to play/watch it.

It has 14 days trial, and it's so much more great than the shit that it was earlier, although the questline didn't improve by much, there are dozens of things to do with a single character, I'm enjoying my 14 day trial actually and am considering to subscribe for a while when I swap job.

Class changing is awesome, though sometimes the inventory is annoying.
Now that I'm having 5 crafting classes my inventory is kinda small :(

The one thing I can't complain is that quest equipment is no better than cratfed for the most part.
You can craft 2 types of items.
Normal, with standard materia slots (if any) and stats like Str, Dex, Int, Mind etc.
or High Quality gear which has quite better properties actually.

I lucked out a few times to craft HQ items, teh entire crafting system is grand, I love it.
there are several ways to improve chances to make HQ gear, Crafting items can also be HQ, yo ucan gather them or luck out from killing some mobs, beasts will always drop some animal skin or beast skin, you can make fine leather with it, or try to make HQ leathers, if you have enough HQ crafting materials thsi will greatly increase your chance to make a HQ item.
A few times I lucked to make a 100% HQ item, their stats are usually better than teh next grade lvl item so it's worth the effort in many cases, for instance, I have my entire lancer gear at lvl 15 being better than lvl 17/18 gear, so gearing up is actually pretty cool.

All crafting classes can make gear for around 50% combat classes. So that's why you need more than one profession.

Loving the idea. i've done a few instances and it's pretty well thought out, losing is easy unless you actually do what you are supposed to do.

I do agree on this, It feels a lot like playing FFT where you can swap between classes etc, get new gear and explore new areas as you level up.

One thing I like about traveling, I think you get the first mount at lvl 20 but below players have the skill called sprint, it's really useful until you get a mount.

Getting HQ crafts is easy once you get the cross class skills. Anyway, crafted gear is actually surprisingly useful. It is basically the best gear in its corresponding item level if you over meld it.

Hmm, either I haven't unlocked it yet, or they removed the  "linked encounter" feature from the Xillia series of "tales of" games.

Man, that was the easiest and fastest way to powerlevel!
Just group 3 monsters together, attack them all at once, get 3 times as much experience, in half the time as it would regularly take.

Edit: Seems I just haven't unlocked it yet, as the game mentioned it (but I still can't yet do it)

Great updates on the battle system and enemies!

Is there a FREE/15-day type of TRIAL for the new FF14?

Because, yeah, I was one of those poor bastards who tried it out before the 'reboot'.
It...it was...uck.

If you still have your login info you still have the game. Granted, you have to drop a months payment. But shouldn't have to rebuy the game

Completed my entire crafting attire to lvl 17 in HQ version, and yeah, my fav cross class skill for crafting is Waste-Not!
With it I have at least 90% quality before durability wears out, and I made a lot of CP jewelry so I have +35 cp from gear now, that's just godly, my gathering gear grants me +90 GP which I rarely use anyway.
Too bad my trial ends in 2 days :(

QTp or something. Quarl's Texture Pack? I can't quite remember the name, but it was a very good HD texture pack for Oblivion, really helped improve things. Other than that, I don't know - I used to be really active in the Oblivion modding scene way back when, but I've forgotten all the great mods I used to use, sadly. There were some really nice ones.

Lol, found a scene in the Madoka Movie Beginnings, where Kyouko kicks a church door down, a rustic, tall, wooden door, surrounded by STONE walls. Window panes are about a foot apart.
3 seconds later, camera switches to the inside view, and the walls are all stained-glass, with thin metal connecting each pane.

Oh SHAFT, consistency much?

From what I recall there is no such full episode.Although he calls him ''mayonnaise bastard'' on many occasions.The closest is probably the one with the mayonnaise factory?Although I don't remember how much interaction they had on that episode...

Well, to be fair... the 11th was awful throughout, so pretty much any change should hopefully be an improvement.

It seemed more like bad writing than bad actor though. I don't like the way they introduced the new doctor. They didn't cut to moments after he finished regenerating, they just went to way later and it left me wondering throughout most of the episode if I'd missed a special I wasn't aware of or something. Overall, it was just a really bad introduction to the new doctor. We didn't really get to know him at all, not even at the very end.

From the sounds of it, Amazon wants to take a largely hands off approach, which is good. With Twitch being bought, I can imagine Google looking to make/buy a competitive service, perhaps the most likely is hitbox.tv? I'm not sure. Regardless, this should solve the bandwidth problems that have been twitch's biggest hurdle.

Yeah, that was expected. There had to be a point where they started giving a shit about not being sued, and that relatively small change made them a lot more attractive from an acquisition point of view.

All they did was mute VODs, which is ok because if we're real the VOD system on Twitch is ass anyway.

What's the difference between twitch and youtube ?
People post their streams about stuff on both I think, Twitch.tv was mostly used for games though, but you have teh same exact vids on youtube, so I never seen a reason to actually go and watch twitch, same shit was always on youtube.

the only real difference would be that Twitch.tv was often airing streams that are ongoing live so it could be useful in that.
I remember a lot of Starcraft2 vids live and WoW.
Sometimes Totalbuiscuit was streaming live as well.

FUCKING JUICE.ooo look cat pictures on imgur.
-you can use the bathroom with the door open
-you're sick of juice and soda and water. You want some punch in your face cause cat pictures aren't helping and you feel another "wtf am i doing with my life?" moment coming. everyone else has their shit together but not you.no, never you.

Dang man, living alone is really not your think. Personally I have no problem maintaining a healthy social life even if I live alone and in fact I'm quite happy that I can have time by myself because while I generally enjoy social interactions, I also tend to find them exhausting.

Also, I rarely drink alcohol, soft drinks or juice. I prefer tea, coffee, smoothies, almond milk or just plain water. And my diet actually improved a lot since I moved by myself, I lost some weight and I also started muscle training and riding my bike more.

The main things I miss from living with someone else is that it's generally cheaper and safer.

I spent the first 2 months after I bought my house in 2006 living alone.  It was great.  And it was the only time I've ever lived completely alone.  I could be perfectly happy living alone for the rest of my life.

That said, there are perks and drawbacks to living with other people.  Having to share space with someone else when you're used to ordering things in the house a certain way is tough to deal with.  So is living with someone who has different standards of cleanliness.  Perks include having someone around to talk to when you're in the mood for company.  Conversely, the drawback is having someone around when you're not in the mood for company.

I'm fortunate that my roommate for the last 8 years also happens to be my best friend.  We've been friends for so long (20 years now), we can anticipate each other's thoughts in a lot of situations.  Or share an old joke with only a gesture, an expression, or a single word.  Even so, when we do finally go our separate ways, I will be thrilled to have my place to myself again.

I have several completely independent social circles with whom I frequently hang out with very little overlaps. It's reassuring for me to know that if for some reason something happens with one of these social circles and either stop being welcome with them or I just don't want to hang out with them anymore, I can still wouldn't be alone.

The truth is that I'm completely disillusioned about humans in general. People are so selfish and irrational, often proudly so, including people I love the most. Yet I can't completely cut myself off from others because whether I like it or not, I'm still a social person, so interact with others I do, but I do it in a controlled way.

Perks of living alone:
-coming home to an empty, devoid of life, house. don't even bother reaching for the lights just get a glass and start drinking because you have that and the internet. also you're a recovering alcoholic so that drink you're preparing doesn't have any alcohol in it. just fucking juice. FUCKING JUICE.ooo look cat pictures on imgur.
-you can use the bathroom with the door open
-you're sick of juice and soda and water. You want some punch in your face cause cat pictures aren't helping and you feel another "wtf am i doing with my life?" moment coming. everyone else has their shit together but not you.no, never you.
-if you're lazy there's no need to make the bed or even pick after yourself.
Recovering alcoholic ? that's rich, I admitted long time ago I have a drinking problem, I drink too little :D
One dude at work goes home with a 4 pack, every day :D
I rarely drink beer, just whiskey mostly, but when I do drink beer, and I do drink it occasionally, when asked why beer when I have whiskey, I say, every goddamn time: I take good care of my kidneys :)

One of the lightbulbs in my studio just went crazy (going on and off, making a weird noise) and now I think it smells a little like burning.

Had to turn it off and wait for it to cool down in case the damn thing shorts all my electric
Title: Re: The General Chit Chat Thread 4
Post by: Krudda on August 28, 2014, 10:28:20 am
We've got two lights here, that won't turn fully off. Even after flicking the switch, they remain dully eluminated. I think the 2-way pass-through wire might be shorting against the single socket wires. They too, sometimes make an odd sound, and smell of burning. I dunno, we just removed the globes and stopped worrying.

There's also the light in the stairwell, which occasionally, flickers, crackles, and smells of burning. Just gotta turn it off and wait for the possum or whatever is sometimes in the ceiling to re-arrange the wiring. Oh, and also my bathroom, about 3 weeks ago, the light wasn't working but I had to go to work, so I decided to change it in the afternoon (no it wasn't a blackout)

When I got home that afternoon, I had totally forgotten about it, but it was working anyway.


I think the wiring in this place is more like a deathtrap, than electricity supply.

Technology-assisted linguistic evolution actually sounds pretty cool, especially now that pretty much everything we write and record is effectively documented for future generations in a way that far surpasses anything an archaeologist of yesteryear could have even dreamed of, allowing the study of every minute detail. Language changes over time to suit the local cultural context, and with the internet giving us a far more global context just imagine the hundreds of different local languages and dialects contributing incrementally to text-based internet communication over the years. What if it all organically gave rise to a universal written language or creole that could be understood by the majority of the global population without the need for formal education such as, say, ESL? That would be cool af (as fuck)

Looking forward to seeing people talk entirely from acronyms they have gotten from the internet.

I'm trying to imagine trying to read a story written entirely in internet acronyms.  I feel my brain die a little every time I see people throw around YOLO and other stupid crap like that.  I think if I had to read that all the time or talk like that, I'd have to murder someone.

Language is an incredible thing, full of art and beauty and power.  It has the capability to shape lives and shake the foundations of society.  Now, I'm a realist -- I get that language has always evolved and will continue to do so.  But the thought of seeing language reduced to a pidgin of acronyms and abbreviations, stripping it of all nuance and subtlety, makes me sad.  I can't help but to see such a reduction as nothing less than the death of an art form.

....and because of the riffle and bacbag, I couldn't carry it on my back, which would have ,ade it so much easier...

That's actually a fairly bad description of what upscale is because a tiny penis doesn't fill up and stretch out to fit an XL condom. And just so you know, Durex comes in XXL.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

A better description is that the resolution increases but the detail doesn't change which makes the increase in resolution effectively only increase the file size without adding anything whatsoever to the quality. 540p raw and 1080p upscale have the same detail but the 1080p is probably 3-5x the file size with no noticeable increase in quality, so... completely pointless.

Reminds me of a similar case in Poland against BioWare/EA and Blizzard. Although it never got much attention and didn't even get to a court because it was settled between lawyers and everyone was happy.

In short, BioWare/EA and Blizzard didn't fully understand the Polish law about refunds, so THEY made an effort to contact the officials and devised a solution. Polish players now can demand a refund even for subscriptions, but I think it's only for within 2-3 days from the subscription purchase. Any loot and level up progress remains unchanged.

I'm not sure if other services follow polish law in that regard, but Steam does from what I can tell, I know a friend couldn't play a game cuz his specs were inaccurate and had a game refunded. But that's only one case I know of.

Also make sure you're clumsy and fall on her often, usually landing a kiss, or copping a feel in the process.

At first, she'll hate you, and might even call the cops on you, but keep stalking her, and eventually she'll grow to love you in turn.

At least, thats how anime depicts it...

ninjaedit:
The stalking part is key, make sure you call her every single night, after about 8pm, and just breathe heavy into the receiver. Don't hang up until she does, then call back immediately, and repeat this process 3 times.

I find it reasonable too.It has great offers and other stuff but still these two things are a bit of a turnoff for me.I never bought anything I didn't play but I hear many did and not only on sale(some where friends too).

I don't think it would be that difficult to offer a few days chance at a refund.Plus these two features have been requested for a long time.

Steam isn't bad in Europe, because they're pretty much forced into following European law, which is very consumer-friendly. I hear that in other places, America in particular, it's virtually impossible to get any kind of refund out of them. I guess it's been the same in Australia up until now, too.

^Combo breaker :D

So I installed Sacred 3, in hopes it would be anything different than I expected it to be.
It isn't.
It's not a bad game though, just easier than the previous 2 games, and completely different gameplay.
Did Square-Enix do the same with Dungeon Siege 3 ? yes they did.
It's even worse here, you get to use 2 abilities MAX during missions.
Upside is you can play co-op which is pretty good, getting more people with you makes it more fun.

Well. Looks like I need to start making a grille for my car now. Two days ago, a dumbass kookaburra (a bird) smashed it.
I just looked around for replacements and the cheapest are $86.....


$10 worth of scrap metal will do. It just sucks because I recently fucking painted that grille and had it looking sweet.

I'm not sure it's worth watching, by how many minutes is it longer per episode ?
I hope they plan on doing the second season properly and not half baked like first season was before. I might wait till the extended cut is complete and then I would try marathoning it. The way the plot was shown in season 1 was severely lacking in explanations, most of the time it was just action vs action. I'd use the time they extend the season 1 episode to cut the episodes and do em properly in the first place, if they need to explain stuff as they are supposedly doing now it means that watching it in the first place was a waste of time since now you have to re-watch it to see some more sense.

Yeah...I wouldn't expect that to happen if I were you.
Have to agree. I'm actually mad that I would have to re-watch it all just for a few mins of extended episode time.

But at least I can give proper credit to the studio and the makers for trying to solve the problem they caused in the first place by doing a half-assed work.

Those that didn't watch the old show should actually be really enjoying it now. I could say I envy them.

There is a pretty wide movement right now promoting the consumption of tap water rather than bottled water because the later wastes a lot of resource and isn't any better than the former. I can empathize with the sentiment but I also have other problems with banning them. In my college's defense, they also installed machines on every floors that cools down tap water so that people can't enjoy ice cold water in their canteens so at least it's not a case of banning something without offering alternatives.

Recycling uses resources too, just less resources. And my college prides itself in being the most environmentally friendly college in the province or something. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

They changed the constitution to allow Putin to take part in elections every cadence now and to allow him constant elections since earlier it was set so that a single person can only be a president twice per lifetime.
Now they can cheat elections votes every 5 years (i think every 5) so teh great leader can do whatever he wants for a lifetime.

Well to be fair, terms should really be 10 years. A President can never really get done what they set out to do in one 4 year term like we have in the US. Having said that... 10 years is a long time and if you had a bad one that would be a very long 10 years. I would have liked to had Bill Clinton in for 20 years or so though.

There's a lot of highly negative feedback.

5 star - 30
4 star - 14
3 star - 10
2 star - 8

The 2's and 1's largely talk about sticking keys, keys that stop working, keys that don't register all the time, and bad hardware. That's 24 out of 78, and many of the 3's talk about it as well, so it's more like 34/78 that are bad reviews - 43.6%. That's pretty shitty odds to be honest, which is why it's such a big deal in my consideration.

In comparison the Isku has...

5 star - 25
4 star - 8
3 star - 1

The two 1 stars are probably defective and the 3 star is just a complaint about the lighting that I don't care about. So it's practically all positive.

The president isn't supposed to do much anyways so 4-5 years per cadence is enough, the President is the representative of the nation on the worldwide chessboard, his role is the king, not do much, the Parliament role is the queen, they are supposed to do 90% of the governmental work in terms of setting laws, correcting them, and making life of the citizens better.

I feel you. I wish Obama's term would end already and we'd kick that jackass out of office. We went from having a good relationship with Russia to practically the brink of another cold war, not to mention going behind Congress and passing ACTA by executive order after the massive public outrage. Worse is that nobody even remembers that it happened because nobody covered it in the news.

For real? They passed ACTA? I didn't know, fuck, I fought so hard to stop that shit and actually thought we made a difference.

No, they didn't. A lot of countries signed it, but as far as I know the only country to have actually ratified it is Japan. The terms of the treaty state that for it to come into effect, at least six of the signatory countries must have ratified it - and since the majority of signatories, in particular the EU (yay for the European Parliament! :D) have now confirmed that they are absolutely not going to do so, ACTA is, for all intents and purposes, dead.

With this kind of treaty, simply signing it doesn't necessarily mean all that much - you don't actually agree to it until your government has formally ratified it, which AFAIK Obama's government has not done (and likely doesn't have the power to do anyway).

In fact, the main reason all these countries decided not to ratify it, despite having given their support by signing it, is precisely because of all the public outrage it caused. So your fighting definitely did make a difference :)

Presidency campaigns in USA are funny.
I wonder how many USA citizens realize how much set up the entire thing is :D

...you do realize that Obama had little, if ANYTHING, to do with this...yeah?

Putin is a cunt who idolizes Stalin.

It wouldn't matter if Bush Jr or Obama or anyone else was in office when he decided to go all empire reclaiming.

Can anyone find ballistics tests on scale mail and other proper metal armors? My google fu is failing me.

edit: I found this - http://www.answers.com/Q/Is_the_armor_worn_by_knights_bulletproof

I guess that mostly answers the question.

That would be far too straightforward and logical. This is Evangelion we're talking about here.

Quick question to the regs:
I'm wondering about an encoding group, so which sub-forum should I post in?

Depends.
Discussion goes in the lounge, quality questions go in the uploaders forum.

I just watched that latest 300 movie. Meh. 5/10, at best. Nothing really happened and it didn't really have any impact. Sure, there were a lot of badass fight scenes but it had no substance and the end was a non-ending. The whole thing just felt empty.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was worse though. Like, 4/10 at most. It had all the aspects of a good movie but it just didn't deliver. I found myself so bored while watching it that I did my nails. The pacing was terrible and the action in the fight scenes was so fast you couldn't really pay attention to any of it. More than that, the characters just felt hollow and they suddenly made a character into one of the leads that was literally just some random guy of the street. It felt so forced and the whole thing was just awful. Didn't watch that today, that was a few days ago, but still...

Ugh.... Well, it is not like waking up early is a bad thing, as long I can sleep past 7am... If I start waking up at 6am after going to sleep at 1am, I'm fucked.

Also, might have to stay in there for 19 days without a weekend off....
I hope I am not that unlucky and have to be there for only 12 days...

It's pretty easy to change if you aren't doing what causes you to have those hours anymore. Humans didn't naturally evolve to be awake and sleep on a set schedule like we do anyways.

I agree about Winter Soldier. I could just watch the trailers and they would be better than the movie itself.
I watched it a week ago and I don't really remember a thing from it, and I remember Titanic clearly, and didn't see that movie for like 10 years or something.
