    1. @valiantratchet Valve is evil.

      Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:42:36 UTC from web
      1. @nerthos Why?

        Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:42:54 UTC from web
        1. @valiantratchet Steam.

          1. @nerthos Why hate on steam?

            Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:47:02 UTC from web
            1. @valiantratchet 1- It forces you to do everything inside it. 2- No physical copies of the games. 3- You must run it to play anything... I had enough rants abut this.

    2. @valiantratchet Well, Valve is really good for indie games. Call of Cthulhu is the best € I ever spent.

      Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:42:46 UTC from web
    3. @valiantratchet If more devs were like Valve, we'd never get any new releases.

    4. Stay up all night talking to people on RDN. Sleep for 4 hours. Sup ponies.

      1. @minti hiya!

        Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:47:29 UTC from web
      2. @minti Hi there! Not much going on here. How're you doing?

        Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:47:53 UTC from web
      3. @minti 'sup, how're you?

        Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:47:55 UTC from web
        1. @twispark @nerthos Okay. I guess. Little doley cause of lack of sleep but can't be helped. Ponies will probably help me cheer up. xD

          Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:48:28 UTC from web
          1. @minti Ponies always help. And if they don't, games do xD

            Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:50:02 UTC from web
            1. @nerthos No games make me rage and want to kill everything that moves. xD

              Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:51:45 UTC from web
              1. @minti Interesting. I always feel calm after a while playing something xD

                Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:52:46 UTC from web
                1. @nerthos @minti With the exception of Sengoku Basara 3, that secred Oda Nobunaga stage, with the resurrections and the massive difficulty, and the Wii freezing.

                  Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:53:50 UTC from web
                  1. @nerthos It is not that hard if you play your cards right. I made the stage with my second try.

                    Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:56:04 UTC from web
                    1. @hakupony Yeah, when I first played with Oichi, in normal, I won at the first try; but when playing with Ishida, level 100, in hard, and the Wii freezing when I managed to win...

                      Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:57:36 UTC from web
                      1. @nerthos I guess it is harder with Ishida because his special moves hardly fit. I guess, you just counterspamed Nobunaga to death...

                        Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:58:52 UTC from web
                        1. @hakupony Yup. I wanted to win with Ishida since he was the first character I played.

                          Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:00:22 UTC from web
                          1. @nerthos The only character I leveled really up was Masamune Date. Wielding 18 blades is just too awesome. I also liked him in the Anime (even though Sanada was best in that one).

                            Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:02:57 UTC from web
                            1. @hakupony Yeah, Date is one of the best characters. Him, Oda, Kasuga, Sarutobi and Shingen are my favourites, though Ishida is my fav main character of SB3.

                              Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:05:17 UTC from web
                              1. @nerthos I kind of like his character. He's just such an arrogant blood knight but incredibly honorable and loyal - even beyond reason. My fav NPC however, is Tachibana Muneshige. This guy IS Sengoku Basara in a Nutshell. Awesome and funny incarnate.

                                Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:09:38 UTC from web
                                1. @hakupony Yup. Tachibana was good. I liked how the game tells you to run from him and Honda, but it's more entertaining to fight them. Ishida is best SB3 protagonist, just because Tokugawa is a traitorious murdock who only survived because Honda saved his cherries a bunch of times

                                  Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:18:22 UTC from web
                                  1. @nerthos Well, Tokugawa wanted to act for the greater good and had a vision - even if it is just "the power of friendship shall prevail". Ishida had just his revenge. As an utilitarist, I'd root for Tokugawa. By the way: did you hear about Sengoku Basara 3 Utage? I just found some footage about it and it looks awesome. You can play as Kojūrō or Muneshige.

                                    Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:22:09 UTC from web
                                    1. @hakupony The extended version? Yeah, I heard about it. I should try to find a copy somewhere. I didn't like Tokugawa because he spoke of "the greater good" acting with betrayal, posibly the worst crime ever. Ishida was a good guy who wanted to make Tokugawa face justice.

                                      Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:24:36 UTC from web
                                      1. @nerthos But at what cost? He engulfed the whole country in the flames of war again just for his own desires. Hideyoshi kicked the dog several times to unite the land and Ishida let all this efford go to waste. I'd say Ishida is a very, very good samurai but fails as daimyo.

                                        Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:28:33 UTC from web
                                        1. @hakupony A country at war is a fair cost for justice.

                                          Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:30:50 UTC from web
                                          1. @nerthos We are at an interesting point because the question now is what it means to be a ruler. I'd argue with Max Weber that there are two kinds of ethics for a ruler: nobleness and responsibility. My position is that a good ruler is a ruler who brings his people the best of possible futures. For this goal, he might have to kick the dog and betray his honour. There is a reason why I liked Samurai Warriors Nobunaga that much :)

                                            Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:38:48 UTC from web
                                            1. @hakupony Yup. It is indeed an interesting point. It's true that it's the responsibility of a ruler to ensure the well being of his people, but without honor, what is a man but just an animal? Honor is the base of a working society. Without honor and justice as the highest standard to go for, a society quickly devolves into a mass of crime and filth as it is today.

                                              1. @nerthos We are worse as animals because we make other people kill each other for some fancy "greater good" or "justice" while everyone thinks he is right. We are very fast in ignoring the suffering of others because we think we are better than them - often because of our "virtue". We believe in Good and Evil, because it let's us feel good to fight against others. I give you that you are consequent with your philosophy and say that Mitsunari does the right thing, but most people who did wrong thought to act in the ways of justice. We can talk about the Jihad, the crusaders or even the Nazis here - they all thought they fought against "evil".

                                                Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:48:28 UTC from web
                                                1. @hakupony deep. tbh tldr; but still <3

                                                  Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:49:27 UTC from web
                                                  1. @twispark Thanks. Thinking about such stuff is kind of my thing :>

                                                    Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:50:20 UTC from web
                                                2. @hakupony Yeah, that is the main problem. You can't institute justice as an arm of a government or something like that, because few are able to see what is actually justice. It's one of the biggest problems of our species.

                                                  Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:50:26 UTC from web
                                                  1. @nerthos We don't have a rational determinator what is right - this is what Kant did assume (and you are talking from a Kantist POV). I don't know what is right and I don't even believe that there is such a thing as absolute good or evil. So I can only look at the results...

                                                    Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:56:09 UTC from web
                                                    1. @hakupony And here is when I drop the conversation because my skills with English are far below what I need to speak my toughts.

                                                      Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:58:39 UTC from web
                                                      1. @nerthos No problem. It was a nice conversation. To be honest, I thought about how to stop it right now since I want to play da games ;)

                                                        Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 16:00:59 UTC from web
                                                        1. @hakupony Oh well. It seems we both will game then xD I agree, it was a nice conversation.

                                                          Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 16:01:58 UTC from web
                2. @nerthos Usually because I fail at most genres of games, and in the morning it's a lot more likely for me to ragequit something due to frustration. xD

                  Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:53:52 UTC from web
                  1. @minti Oh well. That makes sense. They're good for me to calm down mostly due to my natural ability with them xD

                    Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:55:01 UTC from web
                    1. @nerthos Haha, I wish I was naturally good at them. To get on par with my gamer friends I usually have to practice craptons by myself. >.<

                      Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:55:52 UTC from web
                      1. @minti Oh well, I couldn't explain how to make gaming easier. Tried to teach my brother to play, ragequit after an hour.

                        Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:59:04 UTC from web
                        1. @nerthos Yeah. It's natural talent, you can't exactly learn it. xD

                          Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 14:59:32 UTC from web
                          1. @minti Yeah xD It's frustrating to watch my brother play

                            Wednesday, 25-Apr-12 15:01:55 UTC from web

    5. @valiantratchet Ever see a valve game with the word "Three" in it's title? Exactly.
