      • 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.

                  • @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).

                  • @adiwan Ah, yeah, me too. I probably have a PS2, N64, NES hiding around somewhere. Also a PSP, 3DS and for some reason an OG GameBoy within reach-length if I can remember what pile they rest in.

                    But what I really hate are updates, maybe especially so on Windows 10. If I want my system to go into hibernation at the end of the day ( because face it, sometimes I do not want to restart all of the stuff I was busy with ) and see there is an update queued, I might as well do a cointoss on whether or not the system will restart itself in the middle of the night and once done actually reboot untill the last YouTube thing I was busy with starts blaring though my speakers in the darkest hours of the night.

                    Quickest way to fix that is probably to switch browsers.

                  • @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.

                      • 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.

                        • @nerthos I do not think that doing good in video games is in any way a requirement for survival skills.

                          However making an ass out of yourself does not bode well in any situation, least of all when in a group when you need to fall back on basic human survival skills. ( like most of the stuff you do when at boy scout or marine camp, or pretty much any apocalypse-like game )

                          But jumping onto a box and then dashing onto another platform ? Nah. Unless if the 3th dimension dies or something.

                        • @drinkingpony I wasn't talking so much about videogames but rather the mental process behind that one bit. The guy fails at combination of basic concepts, hence not figuring out he can do both at once for quite a while.

                          Survival skills includes things like abstraction and adaptability, not just boy scout stuff.

                        • @nerthos Ohh. Yeah that makes sense.

                          We are probably going to disagree on what is exactly basic though. I mean do we lump in the ability to bake bread from nothing but nature into the same camp as baking bricks ? Or in the same camp as being able to make a steel forge ?

                        • @scribus IMO impeachment would be a bad move for Dems politically. You need two thirds in the Senate, and Democrats don’t even have fifty percent. Bill Clinton (being fair, he IS our only modern example, since Nixon resigned before impeachment) only got more popular with swing voters during the impeachment proceedings, and his popularity soared after the Senate voted to acquit him—same would likely happen to Trump.

                        • @mrmattimation The only time when it would have been good for the Democrats to get rid of Trump would be January of 2016.

                          Each month after that it would be exponentially harder for them to get rid of Trump while saving face to the party.

                          But I am sure there are more than enough people who would tell you in your face that the short-goal immediate solutions outweigh the long-term ramifications.

                          It are those sorts of people who did not have to endure being around R.R.Martin long enough.

                        I would really like a game like that on the Nintendo Switch, but focused on couch-play instead of whatever For Honor's main aim was.

                        • @scribus It was a great concept, but the lack of dedicated servers (Meaning P2P networking, with the game selecting the fastest 'node' as host, like with CoD on the XboX360, a thing that everypony and everyhuman hated) lack of balance, and dishonourable killings in a game called 'For Honor' ultimately brought nothing but toxicity. There even was a day-of-infamy, orchestrated by Reddit, to have a day of NOT playing the game trying to make the dev's aware that the game had huge problems.
