  3. New Pokémon Snap? I'm gladly waiting for all the reviews. Especially I'm waiting for all the reviewers and people bashing it for being too repetitive, short, and unoriginal. The N64 game can be played through within a few hours, and even then there was barely any varying gameplay beyond gushing over 3-dimensional Pokémon jumping around and abusing them with throwables. I expect the new one being similar in scope feature-wise. The right evolution of the game has to be at least a semi-open world with day-and-night cycles and a focus on stealth and exploration, like a real animal and nature photographer.

  4. I am Fluffle Puffed off by the whole entirety of Season 5 and 6 of Community. Left a very bad taste in my metaphorical mouth.

    • I give up printing mechanically precise "big" parts with my SLA 3D printer. The shrinkage and warping is insane, as well as all the cleaning and post-curing procedure. All that for a holder for my new hotend for my FDM printer. When I finished that I buy a spool of ASA and redo that.

      • Especially since “digital animation” before the 2000s required very expensive custom IBM PCs - now studios just buy iMacs in bulk and put them on desks and it works fine. Every step of the process, from layout to colors to CGI to even editing and dubbing, can be done in people’s homes now.

      • Keep thinking about how papayaed the animation industry would be if this Covid thing happened in the 80s or 90s or even in the early 2000s.

        • @scribus There is PRECEDENT for something like that, bits of I think The Lion King and Pocahontas were animated remotely after an earthquake temporarily shut down Disney’s Glendale campus, but there’s no way it would be able to be coordinated on a large scale long term basis pre-digital era. Al Jean said that he encouraged staff at the Simpsons’ relatively new in-house animation studio to work from home well before California’s stay-at-home orders and work wasn’t slowed in the slightest in spite of that. Could not have happened twenty years ago.

        • hope to god those Nvidia leaks are fake, those are some ugly motherbatcaveing graphics cards.

          • @mrmattimation Who cares how they look like? As long as they perform and have good thermals for a reasonable price it's all nice and dandy. Also those leaks are nVidia's own design, and all other manufacturers can implement their own solution. Most of the time the card is in a PC case and in my case there is no window in my case, so looks are totally irrellevant.

          • To be fair: The 3D printer I bought was as cheap as it could reasonably be with the feature set it has. So it is not a huge feat to excel that price.

            • I hope the new hotend I ordered for my 3D printer will solve all my problems I currently have. It's about the same price as the printer itself. Currently my problem is that the hotend doesn't melt the plastics fast and consistent enough, as well as heat that creeps up the filament path and gets soft at the wrong time and thus causes small clogs and extruder motor skipping and some filament grinding. Also with the new hotend I can print with more exotic materials like nylon or ASA, as it can also reach temperatures up to 450°C. Super exciting. My current one would release neurotoxins at any temperature above 260°C as it is lined until the end with a PTFE tube.

              • When I was shopping I was under the impression I needed to buy toilet paper. Now I have so much that it will last until the end of the year. My TP stash was in a closet and they were out of sight and thus also out of mind.
