  2. According to one of my friends. "This will never stop being funny". Then why does it make me cry on the inside ? http://rainbowdash.net/url/874279

    Maybe he cries on the inside manifest themselves as laughter ?

    • @adiwan Well, they are not the only ones on my long short-list of bad companies that I wish death upon.

      Bethesda, Activision-Blizzard, Sony, Pachinkonami, Take-Two Interactive.

      Most surprisingly is that Epic games is not on that list, but mostly because I have no idea what the long term effects will be on the digital game-storefronts.

      Steam does not seem to care that Epic seems to lure developers away with no tact to it whatsoever. If the store wants to take off it should lure customers and not developers in my honest opinion. And then people like Randy Pitchford goes on a Tweet-Rampage on how developers will choose the future of gaming and not the customers.

      I mean...aaaaaah... I am so close to a rant of proportion that makes Jason Shreier's article on why Anthem failed look like a tabloid article by comparison

      Wheeze, wheeze, wheeze

      But please for the love of all things tasty, if things do not work any way preferable, let those games be the most pirated thing on the web.

  6. 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.

  10. So one of my friends recently got a parrot right?

    Turns out that the quickest word they learn to 'speak' is the one that the owner uses the most, right?

    Long story short, this parrot now finishes the sentances of people with the word "right", crazy, right?

      Modern consoles: Wait a minute! I have an update!
      Me: OK. Just this update.
      Modern consoles: Update finished!
      Me: Yeah!

      • @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.

      • @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 just remembered For Honor. The video game where you could live out your fantasy of being a knight and play with a sword. Alternatively a Viking or ?Samurai? if you were one of 'those' people.

      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.

      • @drinkingpony I just stumbled across a documentary (?) on Netflix about that game! Have yet to watch it, and never played, but the concept sounds neat. !vgp !movies

      • @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.

    • Apparently Star Trek is in licence trouble again. I say "Good !". I hope they will eventually make something I actually want to see.

      If that means STD has to die, so much the better in my opinion. Not saying that I am hating on STD, but I am saying that I have read fanfiction that makes more sense.

      I have already had someone telling me I am mad because I think this, because the way he looked at it, and I quote, "There is a VAST fanbase of Star Trek Discovery". I think he is very very wrong in that. As in mere sales of action figures and miniatures, Star Trek Enterprise is still outselling STD from what I have gathered. Those numbers are nowhere close to the behemoths of the original or TNG.

      • @thismightbeauser It's a fan series where all the ponies have antisocial personalities. Twlight: rabid anime-obsessed fanfiction writer. Fluttershy: Still shy, threatens murder to control her animals, is part dragon (dragonness is recessive!). Rainbow Dash: She rainbow dashes and dashes rainbows. Talks like a Pokemon and is generally completely inept. Applejack: The element of -loyalty- " *honesty* " Pinkie Pie: Secretly a witch trying to resurrect her parents. Loves to sing about her tragic childhood as an orphan to inappropriately gleeful tunes. Rarity: Loves giant hats. Sweetie Belle: Secretly a robot. Talks like a robot and is not waterproof, but no one seems to notice. Spike: The punching bag. Gets injured and made fun of constantly. Princess Molestia: Spirit name Luna. Talks in a thick accent. Tries too hard to be liked and comes across as weirder than Twilight. Princess Celestia: Voiced by a dude. Secretly hates Twilight and sends her on nonsense missions.

      • @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.

    • 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.
