  1. @drinkingpony Repair it. Open it and look what's misaligned. When you are at it you can clean the metal contacts.

  2. @scribus It's a super hero movie where the protagonists have the super powers of driving extremely well and the feeling of family.

  3. I'm finished with Splatoon. The ranked battles are not that fun and the regular battles get stale. Also I finished the single-player part of it.
    Up to the next game!

  4. @drinkingpony WTF $150 for cards. I pay a little less for all the comics I read every month.

  5. @scribus I believe it's an experiment to determine how hardcore Sonic fans are.

  6. @drinkingpony oh man. I'm in no way a competitive gamer but that is a little bit crushing. However I was often matched with Level 50 players. The ranked matches are a bit more brutal, especially around 8pm

  7. I'm crushing at Splatoon. Either the others are too lame or I'm too good. I have a win ratio of 90% and I'm mostly the top scoring person.

  8. @scribus Like those fancy theater performances where actors enter the audience!

  9. BTW: If you watch Endgame, then you can walk out during the credits. There is no mid- or end-credits scene. One guy exclaimed at the end "DC is better!" when there was nothing.

  10. @drinkingpony I was at the end of the movie about 20 hours awake. There has to be some leeway in the interpretation of my words. The film was good nonetheless, it kept me awake.

  11. Came out of Endgame 7 hours ago. It ended at 1:45 AM and went straight to bed. Was it worth? Sure. I'm glad I didn't chose a screening on Thursday, otherwise I'd be dead in my car at the side of the road.

  14. Today I was informed that the Adventure Time comic series of its "11th season" was cancelled and the 6th issue is its last. I was hoping that it would last at least 2 years. I hope that the series changes from single issues to straight to tradepaperbacks like Avatar the Last Airbender did straight away.

  15. @scribus Look up "eigenfaces". It's an application of "eigenimages" that use principal component analysis to pictures of human faces. In the process it generates an image that is an "average" image when each image of the set contributes the same amount to the final image. That can be used to recognize faces or morph faces.
    The quality depends solely on the image set. The more faces are not aligned the "blurrier" it is and the more nightmarish it becomes.

  16. @drinkingpony Haha. Once at work I wanted to compute the shadow maps and ambient occlusion of a larger scene in Unity at the end of my work day. But then Windows decided to install an update and restart it during the process. So I had to do it again the next day.

  17. @drinkingpony Well... I have my PS3, XBox360, and Wii U in my network. I like to have my updates but I like them fast and done once, unlike a typical Windows update that shows more Updates after installing the currently installed (especially when setting up a new Windows installation).

  18. Me: Let's shove in a game disc into that console!
    Modern consoles: Wait a minute! I have an update!
    Me: OK. Just this update.
    Modern consoles: Update finished!
    Me: Yeah!
    Modern consoles: Wait! I have another update!

  22. I finished The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Good game with some questionable design decisions. However I enjoyed the game as a whole. Exploring was kind of fun, mostly because of the environmental puzzles. The side quests I ignored for the most part because they ended up being fetch quests for the most part. Building up a village was somewhat unfulfilling because grinding for wood and finding persons was annoying. I liked the shrine puzzles, except for the battle ones. But I kind of get it why they exist: to prepare for the final battle and the Blight fights. I wished the slow-down upon perfect dodging was not so prominent. Speaking of dodging: A slightly bigger window would have been nice because it was hard to hit it even when I knew when to react. Due to a lot of preparation (tons of potions and food) I beat Gannon on my first try. Thunderblight Gannon was my hardest fight in the whole game where I struggled the most.

  23. @scribus I'm powering through the main quests and I don't find many of those Korok seeds to increase my inventory space. Since I don't find any (because I'm not exploring much) it's a struggle to keep a good stock of good weapons. I haven't any problems that I didn't have any but it's a small struggle.

  24. @scribus Ermmm... You're welcome???

  25. Damn Korok seeds. I cannot find them and I NEED more item storage for weapons.

  26. @drinkingpony I'm not a particular mech fan. I appreciate them nonetheless. You don't "control" the mechs. There are 4 giant animal robots that function as big puzzle dungeons. Some of them give you some control over a little mechanic that is for solving the puzzle. The mech elephant "Vah Ruta" has a neat mechanic where you control the trunk that spouts water, which then controls some water mills inside of the elephant.

  27. I conquered the water elephant mecha in Breath of the Wild.

  28. Played The Legend of Zelda Breath Of The Wild for the first time. I spent half an hour getting out of a death loop. The game auto-saved right in the range of a guardian while I was riding on a horse and being at the edge of a cliff. So turning on the horse was impossible. I had to abandon the horse for a short while so it could position itself better such that I could flee with it. I didn't want to abandon the horse because it's the first horse I encountered in the game and I stole it from a bokoblin rider. Also It's super annoyingly long to get from A to B without although it'd be a little bit easier to navigate without a horse because I could use the paraglider more often.

  30. @scribus A fleeing driver is quite an offense here, no matter how big the damage is. A friend of mine slightly damaged a car (a small scratch) while trying to park it. The parking spot was too narrow and had to find another spot a bit farther. A neighbor saw that and called the police and got him his driver's license revoked for a month because of "hit-and-run".
