Re: The Goodbye/Vacation Thread

CanisWolfred

Okay, I can't take it anymore, I always hating this website from a techincal standpoint - once upon a time, it was a barebones site with few helpful features that many of their competitors already used. Nevermind that the writing of most articles was terrible (I'm pretty sure the Switch section had a similar colorpallette, but I usually never stayed on those pages for more than 2 minutes), and now even the reviews aren't worth reading. It seemed like I could only stick through all of this for the community - which is still good, I should mention. Now, however, the red color is giving me eye-strain, and with a few other wonky features that make absolutely no sense, I cannot simply get used to this - It's not worth it. You guys are fun to talk to, but I need to think of my health here. Besides, it's never fun to talk to people when you have a migraine. Later guys, it was fun.

red is fine but why change the layout? i am lost right now...i really dont understand why sites constantly change their layout and it almost always becomes worse

I know right? This is seriously the kind of stuff that makes me want to quit the internet...and I'm getting really ****ing close...I'm down to just Gematsu, RPGFan, Gmail, and a couple porn sites. Maybe Wikipedia on occasion, but even they tend to tick me off with their constant begging...still, they haven't changed their layout in a while, and I hope it stays that way...

Re: Ideas for the site

CanisWolfred

Can we please have the option to hide the forum history thing?

In fact, why is it even there?! My browser already records my browsing history, and we already have a post count in our profile if we need it. And hope my memory never gets so bad, that I can't remember what threads I posted in within the last 30 minutes. It's bad enough that you've already skewed everything to the left, but now you gotta put some history bar on the right to justify it? Screw that, I would rather have to deal with an extra-large advertisement instead - at least I know that serves a purpose!

It sounds like maybe you're just tired of RPGs.

Not really, since I mostly stick to JRPGs anyways. I just don't think a lot of traditional Western RPG mechanics are fun at their core. I mean, I would have a lot more complaints I could be drumming up if we were talking about Baldur's Gate or Fallout 2. I just don't think Mass Effect benefitted from certain mechanics that people seem to feel made it more of an RPG. I mean, the combat_was_ wonky, and I spent a crapload of time with it, and quite frankly, the combat in 2 & 3 made it so that I don't ever want to suffer through that again. I also don't really care much about character customization, unless I get to try a bunch of different things in one playthrough (Skyrim is still one of the best Western games I've played simply because of how easy it is to max out multiple skills just by using them a lot). Not to say I dislike having options, it's just that I simply don't have the time to play through a long game multiple times, so I don't usually put much thought into how I build my character - I'm just gonna pick whatever sounds fun to use, and hope that works out (and quit the game outright if it doesn't, though I didn't encounter that with Mass Effect).

Sigh Anyways, at least Andromeda seems to be offering multiple available builds and won't restrict players to classes or anything like that, so on top of the big world they're offering, I'll still get to try different things so I'm less likely to get bored with it.

@AlexSays I'm not hopeful for that one. I'm still salty that they've taken the series further and further away from its RPG roots with every new entry.

I'm not, but then again, I'm of the opinion that the first Mass Effect game was really bad at being an RPG, and the only thing truly missing from the sequels was exploration...which they're promising to bring back in Spades in Andromeda. So...I'm set. Plus, it just looks fun. Screw conventions. It's not like old CRPGs were fun, anyways. I'd rather be jetpacking, teleporting, shotgunning, and evicerating my opponents in a beautiful sci-fi setting instead of juggling stats all day, and deterimining the destiny of a character I know nothing about, in a world I've just barely begun to experience - all without any chance to rejigger those stats because "my choices have to matter!"

Hey, you know where our choices really matter? In the REAL world! Let's leave that $#!+ there...

Yeah, I had to get that off my chest. I spent quite a bit of time last year trying to understand the appeal of Western RPGs...I didn't really succeed. I'll stick to the few that break from convention in order to make them fun, like Mass Effect...

Re: mother 4 fan-game

CanisWolfred

Eh, I'm happy about that. It was always gonna be its own thing, and it's both safer, and more respectful to declare it a homage instead of an elaborate fan-game directly tied to an established brand. So long as I still get a fun game out of it, I'll still enjoy it just as much.

Re: Wargroove and FAST DMX = no need for Advance Wars/F-Zero?

CanisWolfred

No! At no point would one game existing negate the value of another game, just because it does something kind of similar to it. Believe me, we would have a tiny fraction of the games we have now, if that were the case. And no, I'm not just talking about the cheap knock-offs (granted, Wargroove and FAST DMX would be the knock-offs, anyways).

so tomorrow theres an announcement about this game.
rumors are they may be re branding the name to avoid any beef with nintendo, releasing this game or launching of a kickstarter.
i kind of think its coming to switch.
im going to be busy that day in a meeting with none other than snoop dogg himself, and shopping for a new jet so im sure this site will jump on the news and post it before i do.

Oh c'mon ogo, what's more important, a fan-made Mother game that may or may not have had more effort put into it than humanly possible, or a black & white beagel and a fancy printer?

Re: Unpopular Gaming Opinions

CanisWolfred

@Maxz Huh. And here I was just gonna say that I slike procedurally generated stuff because it feels lazy - there's not as much thought or reason to them on multiple levels, and not just the exploration of the levels themselves, especially these days. It's like...at what point does having all of this stuff actually increase the how fun the game is? A lot of times it just seems like checking boxes to make them more popular, saying, "hey! we got everything those guys got! But THIS one has a rubber chicken in it!" Even the best ones are a whole lot of fluff, IMO. Now, fluff can be enjoyable from time to time, but it's not something I really intend to stick with. The F2P games can get away with that mind-set simply because they're free and are just "casting a wide net", so to speak. I don't understand how these guys keep thinking that can sell me 50 different versions of Minecraft while costing about the same as Minecraft. It might be harder to make a memorable game, but I tell ya, it sure as heck helps it to stand out from the crowd - like a tall peak standing over a sea of fluffy, vaporous, noxious fumes.

Re: Runner 3

CanisWolfred

@Octane Nah, I think you're right. I got confused until I looked on the official site and whatnot. I figured everyone was using shorthand, but nope. It's just Runner 3. No Bit.Trip, no crazy subtitle...I gotta lay down...

Re: Unpopular Gaming Opinions

CanisWolfred

Artwark was way more annoying. Shinion was opinionated, and arguably passionate. I kinda miss him...sort of...okay, not really. But Artwark was just a troll, plain & simple. And every less troll we have on this website, the better. And like I tried to imply before, we've had plenty of trolls. Now lets move on, this is supposed to be about gaming opinions, not opinions of other users, especially ones that aren't here anymore to defend their image.

@CanisWolfred I moved it to the Switch sub-forum, what else needs updating? It's still called Runner 3, right?

Well, since you had the other tread...can we use that title? I just felt like it was more descriptive. I dunno, I missed the fact that it's just called Runner 3. I'm too damn used to their weird naming habits...

Wait, who did that? I don't keep up with Manga. Heck, I barely keep up with anime news & discussion anymore, I prefer to just watch stuff.

Anyways, good to see ya, Tsurii. It's been a while, at least for me. I'm surprised you (or any sane individual who isn't new to anime) got into Overlord, is the manga any different from the anime, if you've seen it?

Also, that list of backburner titles was too big, so I'll just focus on what I'm currently watching before I decide what to watch next.

Re: Anime & Manga (NO SPOILERS PLEASE)

CanisWolfred

Huh, so...I haven't really been posting here much, not because I haven't been watching anime, but because I haven't really been finishing anime...well, I decided to try to be more productive lately, and I've finished off a bunch that I had sitting on the backburner for way too long:

ALDNOAH.Zero
Drifters
THE UNLIMITED: Hyobu Kyosuke
Berserk: The Egg of Kings (the only one on Netflix so far)
Both Little Witch Academia movies

Along with the series I finished last year (Gargantia, Kill La Kill, One-Punch Man, and Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash), I feel like I'm on a roll.

Also, I really need to stop paying so much attention to what random strangers online say about anime. I was under the impression - via the discussion on some forum or another - that ALDNOAH.Zero needed a third season, but I just finished it, and...that was an extremely conclusive ending. There certainly wasn't anything that they could build a whole season off of. WTF I would've finished it years ago had I known that they were full of crap! Arceusdamnit, why do certain people always call out for another season no matter how good an ending they get? Have they ever heard of "ending on a high note?" Bah, whatever. I finished it, and it was a good watch.

Now, note to self:

1) Learn how to spell "note" so I don't have to keep going back and correcting it every single time

2) Currently watching: The Devil is a Part-Time - I really need to focus on it this time, since I keep having to rewatch episodes whenever I go back to it. I am now on Episode 6...for the third time...

3) Also on the backburner:

...I'll get back this later. I had like, a dozen in my head before I started writing, but the instant I sat down, they started leaking out of my brain, and now there's nothing left. I need a new brain.

yeah i think people eat out too much. especially over here in my neck of the woods. i know this girl that went out to a restaurant and i called her 5 hours later and she said she wanted taco bell now.
nobody knows how to cook or even make a sandwich anymore

Heh, yeah. Well, I guess I can cook, at least. For a grand total of ~$12, I now have 6 cheeseburgers and two hamburgers (I ran out of cheese). And one of them had an egg on it (the practice egg came out great, while the one that wound up on the burger kind of turned into an omelet ). I am set for the rest of the week. Tasted good, too.

Offer a regular person a raw egg and they'll look at you like you're a weirdo.

Offer the same person a well done, fully cooked through fried egg and they'll think you can't cook.

Do they not know that a "properly" made sunny side up is mostly raw egg?

...Thanks for the tip, I was just about to go fry an egg. No Joke. It's practice for a burger I'm gonna make later tonight.
