I picked up Wii Sports Resort and damn is that fun. Even canoeing is fun, although I personally enjoy real canoeing too and I know not everyone does so maybe it's just me. The water sports stuff makes me pray that they bring out a new Wave Race. Between this, Little King's Story (which might even be a contender for my game of the year) and Metroid Prime Trilogy at the end of the summer, I'm looking at good times.

However, in real-life news, I'm pretty sure there's something messed up with my car battery. I just got it at the beginning of summer and it's already apparently drained or something. I'll have to take it in to get it checked out/replaced.

you can't feel too bad about the KAF (korean air force) players.  it's a fact that they can't practice as much as the other teams because of their military obligations, but i do enjoy seeing a KAF player win.  but in that particular game, it's boxer...he does stuff like that(not to mention he was a former KAF member...and he kind of was the reason the team exists).  it's like michael jordan coming back and kicking ass at basketball...some 7-10ish (i can't say, i only started following starcraft some year or so ago) years later.

and back in the day, he did stuff like this...

I feel so sorry for the american, not being able to drink legally until your 21. However, I envy being able to buy your beer at a corner store. In ontario, about 98% of our alcohol sales come either from The Beer Store or the LCBO stores. Neither of which have very good hours. The plus side of that is that there's a large selection in one place, which is definitely a good thing. It's just that the hours suck ass.

Gotta get your beer from a beer distributor, and your wine/spirits from the aptly named wine and spirit stores.  Generally a good selection, there's a fair amount of stores around, and the prices don't suck too hard.  I just don't like how we MUST buy our beer by the 24/36 pc. case, unless we go to a bar to buy a six pack, where you'll generally pay at least 1.5x the normal price.

Ted Nugent was my first concert. He opened for Kiss when I saw them in 2000. Kick ass show, and a fantastic first concert experience, from 9th row center.

Speaking of cat scratch fever:

SEX RELATED







So my girl and I started dating on the 6th, and just last week we actually got the time to mess around more than we had already. Long story short: I BROKE HER HYMEN.


WHAT THE FUCK
WHO INVENTED THIS

It literally looked like I stabbed someone, with my cock. Blood got on my hands as I went to pull out [luckily I always wear a condom so no blood really got ON josh junior]. I had to use my undershirt to clean all that up, it was quite an interesting experience. Because I HAD gone down on her for a good long while, making her finish, before actual intercourse, and I would have smelled or tasted something if it was her 'time o' the month'. Afterwards I asked her if she had already been done with it this month and she said yea, she didn't know why she was bleeding.  Then she informed me that even though she was not a virgin, some hymens are a little elastic or harder to 'break' than others. Apparently it can also break as easily as riding a bike or playing sports.

ITT: Cherry poppin' madness.

I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror.  If anything I can say this cab is rare, but I thought "naw forget it, Yo homes, to Bel Air."  I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8, and I yelled to the cabbie "Yo homes, smell ya later."  I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there, to sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel-Air.

I BROKE HER HYMEN.

My GF and I were both virgins before we had sex. I don't think her hymen was broken from something earlier, because it was DAMN tight when I'd finger her, but I guess I managed to stretch it without actually breaking it, because I never got any blood. I think I just fingered her enough before hand (It took us quite a while to work up to sex) that I'd managed to stretch it until it wasn't an issue, lol.

Wow, that sucks. In the beer store, they have 24's, 28's (for some things, not everything has 28's) 12's, some things come in 15's, and some 6 packs. There are also the occasional 4 pack, for certain imported beers (like guinness). You can get 6 packs of guinness, but they are not real guinness, because they're brewed on license to the molson brewing company, and taste like shit.

The selection is usually pretty damn good (especially in a city, they beat the hell out of even small town beer stores), but the biggest issue is the damn closing times.

Also, coolest website ever: http://www.beerhunter.ca/

The website's descriptions:
The Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) is a Crown corporation established in 1927 to sell liquor, wine, and beer in Ontario through a chain of retail stores. An old monopoly from the paternalistic days of yore, they almost universally close too early and on all stat holidays. Fortunately, most locations have an excellent selection of foreign and domestic libations.

Brewers Retail Inc., founded in 1927, is a privately owned chain of retail outlets in Ontario, Canada operating as "The Beer Store". In fact, it is owned by a consortium of the Labatt arm of InBev of Belgium, Molson-Coors of Canada and the US, as well as Sleeman Breweries of Guelph, Ontario. It's a cartel with poor hours but a very large selection of (mainly domestic) beer covering the gamut from "distinctive" to "swill".

i just love how the ms point system is made to nickle and dime you.

you want that 1200 point game?  well you have to spend $25 on 2000 points to buy that game. 

sure im going to get splosion man now since it's 800 points and i will have 800 left over, but still, im basically forced into spending more than i wanted too. 

and $50 for a year of gold.

$80.00 down the drain :(  ($5.00 for mc donnalds....)

least i won't have to worry about xbl gold for a long time. 

but if anyone is down for some marvel, i got it.

that said, not even going to attempt the online till i know what im doing.  now it's like blazblue where "WHATS GOINN ON MAN" but this game feels less alien to me.  by that, i mean, zangief, THROW MAN, k.  flying is weird, and i know i have to invest a good chunk of time to figure out whats what...

BUT UNLIKE BLAZBLUE im having fun in training mode.  this is subject to change since ive really only played for an hour, went to arcade with zangief, juggernaut, sentinel, realized the final boss can't be throwed (sorry gief), beat him anyway.  went to training mode with felecia, chun-li, anakaris.  felecia is pretty fun, chun-li isn't, and anakaris is fucking awesome....now to try out the rest of the massive roster.

to end, AIR SPD, DUDE!

MECHA GIEF, DOUBLE DUDE!

From what I remember of MvC2, MOST of the Street Fighter cast is useless, outside of Zangief and a few others. Also I'd probably buy it, and only because it comes with all of the characters unlocked. Anyone who thinks unlocking characters is a good idea hasn't tried it in MvC2.

Okay, first of all, you get points to unlock stuff by beating people in arcade. Once you get enough points, you go onto this screen that gives you only a few choices of what to get, and it's somewhat random. It seems to constantly give you shit choices like "generic carnival stage, NOW AT NIGHT" or "NEW RECOLOR FOR CHARACTER YOU DON'T USE" and it forces you to waste points on these, also new characters cost a SHIT ton of points so you want to try your hardest just to save as many points as possible.

That was definitely one of the reasons I stopped playing the game.
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: vladgd on July 29, 2009, 07:12:00 PM
unlocking characters in any fighting game is just retarded, i was raging hard during my unlocking of characters in sf4.  "set to easy, beat arcade mode with everybody, when it comes to akuma/gouken, pick sagat, beat seth, beat akuma...then beat the game with akuma to try the perfects/ultrafinishes again with sagat.  why beat it with akuma right after you unlock him?  BECAUSE THIS IS WHY, YOU GET TO GOUKEN, FIGHT HIM, AND YOU DONT FUCKING UNLOCK HIM, YES, YOU DONT UNLOCK HIM, YOU HAVE TO BEAT THE GAME WITH EVERY CHARACTER CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FIRST THEN YOU CAN GET GOUKEN EVEN AFTER YOU GET TO HIM AND BEAT HIM."  it wasn't hard, but it was a waste of my time.  when i get a game, i want to play it for what it is, not do this minigame of unlocking crap so i can start playing(even though i don't use any of the unlocked characters).

"hey i want to use lizardman in sc2"

sorry jimmy, you have to play conquest mode for 10-15 hours to unlock that character.

[spoiler] i beat all but 3 missions in conquest mode, and i did not unlock lizardman [/spoiler]

to end, mvc2 makes my hands hurt.  and yeah it pretty much looks like only the street fighter cast doesn't work that well.  the darkstalkers people seem to do fine.  anywho, yeah, that.  guess i can try online a bit, but id rather piddle around offline for a team im comfortable with first.  thus far, juggernaut if only for his assist is good.  maby anakaris, juggernaut, felecia, or something of that nature.

and is it me, or is flying a bit odd?  and why does it "turn off" after an amount of time, it would seem hard to keep up with when a bunch of shit is happening at the same time and it's like "shit im falling" and you have to reactivate the flying.

The entire Street Fighter cast is terrible except for Dhalsim and Cammy, and most of the neat characters are rated pretty low so really, don't even worry about who's good/bad. There are going to be a ton of new people playing and they'll all suck and choose whoever they like anyway.

I always liked Spiral, Captain Commando and Hayato. Or Doctor Doom.

I used to use Gambit/Morrigan back in MvC1.

Awesome.  I know how to play about half of it on the piano from looking at midis (all of Visage/Long Arm/Short Arm, all but the ending of Tiger/Machine/Power/Magic, the majority of Lady/Rest, and the intro and first thirty seconds or so of the final movement).  It's a really great piece to play.

edit: when you fight the three gods, "The Fierce Battle" plays (like when you fight Ultima Weapon on the floating continent).  Does your sheet music have that too? :U

MvC2's unlock system was NOTHING compared to SF4, but I agree it's a fucking dumb idea for a fighting game. Sure, new costumes and stages are cool, but unlocking characters that you want to play from the get go and having to play character you might not like just to do it is like slapping your fans in the face.

I'm glad Guilty Gear AC skipped this shit, but I think you can unlock the bosses in GG XX Reloaded.

it's not that bad in sf4, but it's there, which is annoying.  but yeah, both = gay.

in other news, killed diablos, ralthos, rathian (spelling can't remember on the latter two) with ease with a friend today.  that got the urgent quest unlocked, so now we need to kill shen goren (im going by memory on spelling here) to rank up to rank 5.

still using lances, but for shen...i may end up using my hammer because of how he fights. 



video shows who he is, and what i need to kill.  he's kind of big...height wise.  gravios/black gravios is about as "wide" but he still is tall enough for you to easily run underneath him and whatnot.

i reckon here's black gravios, i need to kill him one more time for a lance upgrade.

pretty funny video hosted by a hot cammy cosplayer.

comic-con looks fun.

*edit*

my monster hunter partner soloed shen goren and told me i should at least attempt it (i effing hate soloing in this game) so i did, and beat him.  interesting fight because you don't really kill him (at least at my level, not possible to kill him with the gear currently avalible) you kind of just hurt him a lot and by doing so you are kind of slowing him down from attacking the fortress, if time reaches 0 and the fortress is still standing (theres some meter that starts at 100%) then he leaves and you win. 

uhh and i did it with hammers, lances...probably would have failed to tell you the truth.

BASICALLY what that means is im hunter rank 5 now, and since i have like no elder quests (single player kewestsxxzz) done, i finally get some farm upgrades, among various other shop items that came in stock, and of course hr5 missions.

I just checked, and TPB still works for me. But yes, I'm very saddened about the news that they've been bought. I realize that it's a miracle they've lasted as long as they have, but this still really pisses me off. Basically, Sunde and the rest of the gang make a boatload of cash, GGF owns one of the best known names on the internet, and the users get shafted.

As far as I can tell anyway. I doubt that a for-profit organization will be running TPB the way it is for very long, if at all.

Oh.  Well, I recall reading that the current TPB owners plan on using the money they get from the sale to fund pro-piracy organizations or similar.  I, too, am sad that this is happening -- they fought The Authoritah for years, and this makes it sound like they're just giving in.  They might not have had much of a choice, though, with their court ruling and such.  R.I.P., The Pirate Bay 2003-2009.

waited like 10 minutes, it turns back on.  so i guess i have to keep using the damn thing till it's guaranteed to RROD before i send the fucker in to ms? 

mind you, this irritates me, not just because my console of only 4 years is nearing the end of it's life, but my console of only 4 years is at the end of it's life when i haven't played it terribly much (600 hours, tops) and when ive taken PRISTINE care of the damn thing.  i mean, i cover the thing up with a t shirt when it's not in use as to prevent dust from settling in.  i would go "maby ill get a new console that isn't a 360" but mass effect 2, and the lot of arcade games i got for the damn thing, not to mention the $200 in 360 arcade sticks i have purchased.  pretty fucking lame, and i know when they send me a new one, it isn't new, and it's going to die faster than the one i currently have.


on the bright side, killed lao-shan lung today.  took 4 fucking tries, and the boss lasts 35 minutes....so that's 160 minutes of almost nonstop fighting.  kind of mentally taxing to be honest, since the fucker is so goddamn big, and you have to literally be attacking it non stop or else you fucking fail.

well it sucks that its technically working now, because playing online im paranoid the damn thing is going to randomly RROD on me interrupting my game. 

anywho, i tried out my hori again since i haven't played on it since i got the TE.  FRANKLY the fighting stick ex 2 is awesome....IF you don't have any other arcade stick experience (pretty much me, i never played fighting games at the arcade).  the move from ex2 to TE didn't feel big when i got it, but after being used to the TE...god fucking damn the thing is substantially better to play on than the ex2.  i guess that's for the better, since big expensive stick with arcade parts should be better than the cheap affordable stick.  but it's nice to have an extra stick around for when you have friends over. 

i kind of understand the naysayers on the hori stick now, but i don't exactly agree 100% because that stick did me fine for the months and months ive used it on sf2 and sf4, and if you are pretty casual on the fightan play (fuck, im really casual, i figure since i play a lot, the TE was a good investment which for me, it was).

but when the 360 does go perma RROD, i had hope they give me a nicer model that won't overheat.  not that it's hard, mine doesn't even have an hdmi port...and it was a "pro" model at the time.

That's what my first 360 did when it was in the process of dying.  When my original Xbox started doing the whole RRoD thing it would occasionally freeze after playing it for 30-60 minutes, sometimes with severe graphical corruption.  After a few hours of it acting really flaky I shut it off, let it cool down, and was able to play it for the rest of the night with no problem.

But, rest assured, it'll be perma-RRoD'd soon.  The day after mine started acting goofy it checked out completely.  Mine was also the original, non-HDMI "Pro" model, with the 20GB HDD.

Do note that when they replace the system board they don't appear to change the case at all.  Unless they changed the policy since I had mine swapped, you're not going to get an HDMI port on a non-HDMI system.  I suppose it's possible that the port is there, but if it is the shell is covering it.  And, frankly, I'm not willing to risk taking apart my replacement 360 to check it out.

Also I feel pathetic, it took me damn near 40 tries to beat Seth in SF4 with Chun Li (I was really starting to hate her, but after a while I realized she's a lot of fun. Will probably try and pick her up despite me still not being able to pull off her ultra and super) and afterward I go into it with Akuma on normal and beat Seth first try, what gives?

I still never run into Akuma and when I do, I tear them to shreds. They're almost always scrubby but whatever. I just run into Ryu/Ken/Sagat/Balrog. Forever. In fact, I've still never fought a single C. Viper or Gouken. Ever.

Also, my 360 replacement was a little weird because it clearly wasn't my original 360 that came back to me, but an entirely new one. The serial number and all that was completely different. Thankfully you don't send them your hard drive. I think it really just depends on what caused your red ring in the first place. If they can't easily fix it, they just toss you a new one. I'm actually really scared of that happening now because I'm totally out of warranty and so now I can't get it replaced regardless. If my 360 dies, I have to buy a new one.

Meh, C. Viper is kind of hard to use and for some reason everyone hates Gouken. I honestly don't see why you'd pick Ken or Ryu when Akuma is available, then again I think he's lower tier then Ryu.

wait, so i can't even send it in without a warranty?  figured i had to pay them money to get that problem fixed.  ID REALLY RATHER NOT BUY A NEW 360, FUCKING SERIOUS.  basically means "theres two weeks of me buying nothing since the goddamn paycheck goes towards a 360" 

also, c viper is uncommon, but not vega or gen uncommon.  and i run into goukens decently often, more often than say guile or cammy.

but honda for fighting akumas has been doing ok thus far.  no idea why, maby i can just out turtle them or something.

*edit*

so to buy new 360...or spend $100 or whatever it costs to "fix" it.

*edit*

ok i guess it didn't want to turn on to play some street fighter 2.  i have two options (mind you, im going to be getting both before either mass effect 2 or mosnter hunter 3 comes out)

get new 360, continue to enjoy sf2.  but really not play anything else (though, i play a lot of sf2) except probably shadow complex.

get wii, enjoy whatever i can find on it, know im good for monster hunter 3.  i may whore out on the virtual console, but that's ok.

if im crazy enough, saturday is when ill get whatever.  if im sane, i won't get either because fuck both of em.  buying a new 360 is probably going to be the most painful console purchase i will ever do, which is why i don't want to do it.  but i mean, one of my earlier posts, i have a lot of money in virtual games, physical controllers, and physical games...that i won't be able to play.

one, my first one broke, so i need another.

two, that one WILL BREAK AGAIN NO DOUBT IN MY MIND, so i should probably just quit, get a ps3, sell my 360 shit and know the ps3 has a substantially less chance of dying on me, thus saving money.

this basically sucks ass, since i need a new 360, but i don't want to buy one because its going to die again and ill need to buy a third...cycle continues till i grow a brain and stop or the next generation.

Our offer's all finalized and it's just in the hands of the bank to contact the previous owners and make sure the offer's accepted. Giant 2nd floor that's a master suite, two good-sized bedrooms on the main floor with a living room/giant full bathroom/kitchen and then a basement with a 27ft monster family room (which I would like to use half of for my room since I prefer the temperature in a basement), an exercise room, laundry room and 3/4 bathroom (has shower stall, toilet, sink). The back yard is massive (although it's a downward slope so it's a pain in the ass to mow), lots of room for bbq'ing/parties, a deck on the back (which connects into the basement for easy access) and a two car garage with a storage room on the back and then another shed in the back yard.

Family. Just my mom and dad. I'm on super friendly terms with my parents and we joke around more like roommates these days than anything.

I don't care either way. I've lived in an 800 sq.ft 2 bedroom apartment for the last 13 years. Living in a house with something like double the sq.footage and an actual yard and no people banging around your walls all the time is worth it.

Definitely. I've lived in the same place pretty much my whole life (moved when I was less than a year old), and I've come to really appreciate the size and privacy of my house, after seeing my friend and girlfriend's living places. Nekros, who occasionally posts here, recently moved out, and the place he was living in was pretty nice, but it was in a townhouse, so we had to make sure we weren't too loud (it wasn't ridiculous or anything, just no huge sound system, or loud yelling and such). And him and his GF are currently moving to an even smaller place (mind you, it's a fair bit cheaper). And my GF moved for college, and was living with 2 other friends. So I've see more of the other side of things recently (I know there are a lot worse places out there, too). And it definitely makes me appreciate my place.

I get paid minimum wage to serve pizza and cake to upper-middle class little shits and their douchebag parents, or to walk around in circles inside a laser tag arena that's in hideous need of repair. The floors are busted up, the speakers and most of the lights don't work anymore, some of the ramps are about to break in, and none of the fire exits are actually hooked up to any kind of alarm system; the employees just use them to go outside and smoke during the games. Guess how many hours I've worked this week? 8. Across 3 days.

So I saw Heaven and Hell last night.

Coheed and Cambria opened for them, and I was only familiar with maybe half of one song of theirs.  About 2 songs in I went from sitting down to standing up. they blew my sox off!!!!!!! Fucker played a THEREMIN WITH HIS HAIR.  New favorite band, their live performance is FANTASTIC.

Oh and seeing Tony Iommi play guitar was fucking fucktasticly fucking fuckawesome.


PS: I got a drumstick from Coheed [as i was in the 2nd row] and a guitar pick from Iommi at the end of the show, probably cause I was the only sober one around me, making me able to catch one haha.

I am definitely moving in a few months now...except I have absolutely NO IDEA how we're going to do this. Like, which parts of my room I want to move over first. We have pretty much all of October to move (closing is on September 30th) so it's going to be pieces here and there and it's like UHHHHHH I have way too much stuff and we still haven't figured out what we're doing with the rooms or where anything will go. Like, even in our old house, we've never had both a family room AND a living room. So like, do we actually put the nice big TV downstairs in the basement/family room and stuff (where it probably should be) and put one of the crappy small TV's in the living room? Or do we just not put anything in the family room for now and I eventually buy my own big TV to put down there and enjoy (which I like the sound of)? So many plans for the future and stuff to make just because I'm moving my garbage from one location to another.

Also, Scythe 2 finally got finished, it's really great, haha. For a Hell Revealed-esque mapset, it's really awesome.

pandora, type in "a tribe called quest" and have good raps to work to.

*edit*

so i got firefox 3.5.  anybody know how to change it when i click and drag a tab into the window just below, this would normally reload the tab.  a quick short drag and drop for an easy quick refresh...but in this version, that function drags the tab into it's own firefox window...VERY ANNOYING, can i change this?

Hilariously, the slim PS3 is going to be the same price as the PSPGo in Europe. They're apparently offsetting that by offering Gran Turismo PSP with purchase. Too bad that's still not even close to the correct price and is pretty much an insult considering how ugly the PSPGo is, along with it not letting you play anything UMD-based but rather offering some unnamed way of transferring your UMD games into digital downloads. And they haven't even begun to explain how or when that'll work. Also the screen is smaller and it looks like the most uncomfortable thing you could imagine yourself holding.

Great job, Sony.

I'll probably go half in on a slim PS3 with my parents. They want a bluray player and I want a bluray player and the ability to play the other 5 or 6 games the PS3 has that I would enjoy that I can't find on my 360.

this for the standard unleveled character, is the hardest fight in the game in my opinion (level 60 on insanity is literally the two assassins before you see harkin)

posted because it's awesome, and i need the song used.  and i mean, ive died and raged on this fight MANY MANY MANY MANY MANY TIMES, i beat the game 10 times, but ive played through to at least this part at least 20.  thus, DEATH MONTAGE!

and thanks for the addon spektur.  it doesn't help the reload problem, but it prevents me from making new windows the many times i accidentally try.

So I had this dream

I was rescuing a small doggy

the doggy had eaten many valuable jewels

bad people wanted to kill the doggy to retrieve the jewels

I saved the doggy, but I needed a getaway vehicle.

Who else do I run into?  Spectere and LunarKeys, that's who.  Spectere's driving the getaway car, and monsieur Keys is chilling in the back.

Cops give chase

Spectere starts driving like an idiot

I instruct Keys to give me the PS2 controller that I somehow knew was in the back of the vehicle

After saying "Dammit Ian, if you're going to drive like a dumbfuck, at least let me get rid of the cops!  Here!"  And then I take hold of the controller and input the cheat codes for "never wanted" and "flying cars" from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

They work.

Cops go away.

We fly away.

Fun ensues.

College schedule has been changed at the last minute. Whoo.

Basically, I was locked out of the required classes when I signed up, and I was required to take one at another campus (which is doable, just inconvenient). So, I dropped that one in order to take another, except I accidentally dropped a different one that was on campus instead. That class filled up by the time I realized my mistake, so I sent off an e-mail to the professor asking about being re-added (since every other class is at either 0, -1, or -2 for remaining slots, a.k.a. over-full). In the meantime, I checked my curriculum requirements and registered for another class that I need (which is going on right now, but I'm not there - going Wednesday).

Basically, I'm at 16 credits again, but I have a class that I need and want to register for, and if I can manage to get in, I'm dropping this other-campus class in favour of it. No potatoes since it's neither good nor bad in total, just a bit stressing.

Basically, I was locked out of the required classes when I signed up, and I was required to take one at another campus (which is doable, just inconvenient). So, I dropped that one in order to take another, except I accidentally dropped a different one that was on campus instead. That class filled up by the time I realized my mistake, so I sent off an e-mail to the professor asking about being re-added (since every other class is at either 0, -1, or -2 for remaining slots, a.k.a. over-full). In the meantime, I checked my curriculum requirements and registered for another class that I need (which is going on right now, but I'm not there - going Wednesday).

Basically, I'm at 16 credits again, but I have a class that I need and want to register for, and if I can manage to get in, I'm dropping this other-campus class in favour of it. No potatoes since it's neither good nor bad in total, just a bit stressing.

Yeah YSU fails epicly at that Vyhd.

My processor is at about 70 degrees C, should I be worried? My case seem to be fairly warm and I'm hoping my graphics card isn't going to explode.

Also this game (Lost Planet) isn't even that graphically demanding but it's turning my PC into an oven, what the hell is going on here?

Probably. You might want to check the heatsink. Hell, mine's OC'd 8% and never gets above 40C, even if I'm breaking the source engine in Gmod.

That's on the warm side, but it's still well within acceptable ranges.  If you haven't cleaned the system in a while, grab a canned of compressed air and blow the heatsink out.  If you have a heatsink that allows you to unscrew the fan and remove it, do so.  If not, get as much dust out from under the fan as you can.

Those kind of temperatures might even be normal for your processor.  On my Prescott P4, my CPU averaged 40C idle and 60-65C under load.  Similarly, C2Qs run hotter than C2Ds in my experience.  The manufacturing process of your CPU makes a difference, too -- 65nm CPUs run hotter than 45nm CPUs.  There's a lot of factors; it's hard to say for sure what your CPU "should" be running at.

Yeah, I was gonna post about how some CPUs run much hotter than others.

Why do 65 nm CPUs run hotter than 45s?
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Spectere on August 25, 2009, 01:37:52 PM
The manufacturing process affects the size of the transistors.  Larger transistors require more power to operate, therefore generate more heat.

Case in point: I read one site that said that if a Core 2 Quad were manufactured on the same process as a 386 processor they would consume about 3kW and generate monstrous amounts of heat.

So I went to the Urgent Care today to see what I could do about my supposed 2nd case of tonsillitis.  I had gotten it previously 1-2 months ago, took the Azithromycin which I have used before, and by day 4 it was a lot better, and soon gone.

This time, is very different.  Same sore throat feelings, started taking the Zpak, but this time, it didn't work, as it should have.

Today, I woke up with blood in my mouth. After spitting that all out, I called my mom and told her I was going to the Urgent Care to figure this the fuck out.

Long  story short and after blood work and culture tests, I seem to have contrated Strep throat AND Mononucleosis.

Shit. D:  That sucks.

the strep will go away 'by itself' kind of.

Don't skimp on the antibiotics.

When I was 12 I had a family doctor misdiagnose strep throat as something totally benign.  Long story short, I discovered first-hand that rheumatic fever (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rheumatic_fever) is a fucking cunt.

For one thing, if I didn't take aspirin every day I would find myself suffering from agonizing joint pain.  I had to take antibiotics twice a day for years (four times a day when I was first diagnosed).  I had to visit a doctor every couple of months and get blood work done, as well as see a cardiologist regularly to make sure that my heart wasn't getting damaged (don't worry, I'm okay).  I still have to take heavy antibiotics prior to getting any dental work because there is a good chance that I could have a relapse if I get strep throat again.

Long story short: don't forget to take your antibiotics.

first off, a friend of mine (my ex from YEARSSS ago) wanted to hang out today(she's been living in texas/georgia for the past few years).  so im all excited about that, i get out of work 15 minutes late to find out...she decided to chill out with one of her girlfriends instead. 

kind of pissed off, and i admit, slightly whipped for said woman.  my personal logic tells me to blow her off the next time she wants to hang out, which i think it's a damn fine idea.  VLAD WANTS NO DRAMA, so i guess NO WOMANZ ALLOWED IN MY TREE HOUSE for the time being anyway.  been doing fine while she was gone, best course of action is to pretend she still is gone. 

also, goddamn FUCK FOOTBALL.  our town's high school had a home game today, on a friday.  also one of our employees was schedueled till 10 (same time i get out) and well, the fucker took off at 7 and didn't come back. 

that combined with 9:30 ASSTONS OF PEOPLE FLOODS OF PEOPLE PHONE CALLS OUT THE ASS AND ONLY TWO FUCKING PEOPLE TO DEAL WITH IWTT AFSRgodhognmghkldoirljbdob

i could complain my legs fucking hurt after running yesterday, but that's a minor complaint, even though it kind of really blows.  moral of that story, just because i think i can run fast, don't bother racing against a friend who is in really good physical condition, when i should be dead i am so unhealthy.  THOUGH, i was close behind his ass the entire time, so i probably just pushed myself too hard.

anything else...?  guess ill just chill today, i got tomorrow off which is nice, and ill try to play a non rage inducing game (unless bros are on for cod4...which makes me swear up a storm every time i play)

tldr- vlad needs to go gay, stupidly busy work day, legs hurt, rio makes strait men gay

Oh I went back yesterday after working 4am -10am.  My white cell count went from 21k down to 12k. Meaning my body is responding to the antibiotics, and thus, getting better and fighting the infection with the pills.

Got a 3rd shot of antibiotics which helps.

Still taking 2 antibio pills/day, Vicodin when/if I need it, same for the mouthwash with lidocaine. Also intervals of oral steroid pills every day for 6 days, which acts as an anti-inflammitory

Overall, I'm 'feeling' better than I had been, yet I am still fatigued after x hours of sleep.




On the plus side, I'm buying a new laptop tomorrow:

Yeah, you should be fine.  It'll probably lag like hell in Dalaran, but everything lags like hell in Dalaran, so I wouldn't worry about it.  40-man raids would probably slow you down a bit because of all the particle effects and such.  Other than that, the game should be pretty dang playable.

But man, with school coming up, and all the other crap happening (one friend moved in with his GF, has no internet, hard to contact, one friend is in Toronto, too far away to hang out with, one works 5 days a week, Monday and Tuesday off [nights, at that], GF just moved back to Barrie, meaning a 30 minute drive if we want to hang out, and me with no car and no money to pay for gas) I've been having a really hard time finding anything to do. It's so boring it's bordering on depressing :/

That, and I need to find out who the hell I have to talk to at school. I'm on Academic Probation right now, thanks to fucking up and failing 2 courses last semester. Luckily neither were program specific (one was my General Education course for the semester, and the other was my Communication [English :/] course for the semester, taken online). But now I'm forced to meet with someone to try to make sure I don't fail anything this semester. If I do, I'll be kicked out of the school for a year. And my parents don't even know I'm in this situation.

So basically, if I fail something this semester, I'm fucked. Royally. And to make things worse, I've got a teacher I HATE for a third time... Doing a class that is actually important (Digital Circuits) :/

but im hoping it fills my itch for a good wrpg.  i mean, the concept of the game alone should tempt anybody.

no fantasy bullshit, just old time mounted combat with armies fighting armies.

So I was walking around the Minnesota State Fair this morning and walked into one of the arcades. I spied a Jungle Jive machine. Now, for those who don't know, Jungle Jive is a redemption machine where you aim a coin slot and drop a token into the machine and have it land in a bed of other tokens and a pusher will sometimes push a bunch of tokens over a ledge, which makes it pay out tickets. Well, every Jungle Jive machine has a problem where one of the coin slots will pay out tickets just by shaking it back and forth. I walked up, slid the coin slot to the left and then all the way to the right and instead of the usual couple of tickets, it paid out its entire stack. I just walked away smiling and went off to the pinball room where there are many amazing pinball machines. I came back about 10 minutes later to find some kid freaking out that he had found tons of tickets. I guess I made some kid's day.

I also learned of H2Overdrive, which is basically Hydro Thunder on steroids. Oh my god I want a home version. There are way too few crazy racing games these days.

So I decided since I have a nicer system to do shit on that I'd try some games that I couldn't play previously.  As I type, I have about an hour left of PERFECTLY LEGITIMATELY obtainining Fallout 3. I've never played a Fallout game before. BUT, I did play thru and beat oblivion, and I've played lots of halo. So Halo-blivion shouldn't be too different right!1?!?11


edit: It crashes with i start a new game haha

Fallout 3's about as far from actual Fallout as you can get. The first two games are actual RPGs.

http://www.gog.com/en/page/1year_promo

Here, buy Fallout 1 and 2 for $5.99. Lots of great other stuff too and it's all set to work on whatever operating system, no DRM, updated and everything. And you can still use mods on them.

Post by: vladgd on September 05, 2009, 07:32:02 PM
it's pretty far from the originals, but it has a good amount of similarities if you played the first two games (well, i really only beat the first game, didn't like the second). 

still if you look at it as an oblivion style game, it kicks the living shit out of oblivion.  i hope because of fallout 3 that the next elder scrolls game they make won't suck.

im kind of really getting agitated.  i want a game to play, i can afford a game, i will buy a game, but i want something that looks interesting.  this is a problem because people can suggest stuff "YO DAWG PLAY "INSERT GAME I DONT FIND INTERESTING HERE" and i have to say no. 

i even dug out nuts and bolts again...and THAT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO ABANDON VIDYA I MEAN IT'S JUST NOT FUN.

it's fucking weird.  id rather be in a "i don't have money to get this awesome vidya" rather than "PLEASE MAKE A VIDYA I HAVE MONEY TO GIVE YOU".

KOTOR is on steam for $10.00...meaning no sound glitches from the 360's emulation of the game...IM VERY FUCKING TEMPTED.  problem, i beat that game already. 

DGDGDHTFHFHFHFHFH

doesn't help that every game ever(except for diablo 3) was delayed until 2010/a peroid that isn't right now.

anybody here EVE savvy?  i want to play that game, but without a corp, you really can't play that game.  i figure it's an option of something to play.

*edit*

i reinstalled stepmania, got it all configured, and i have my old songs on it.

NOSTALGIA BOMBbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb

*Edit*

k i buckled down and got kotor on steam.  the sound glitches on the xbox 360 emulation of the xbox game drive me fucking crazy, i really don't know how i went through the entire game on my light side file on the 360.

going to maby start a LP that i may "gasp" actually give a damn about now.  oblivion was a bad start and i only started the lp thread to hopefully motivate me to play, but if anything, it made me want to play a game i didn't want to play, even less.

i had the same problem with my "cough" NOT FROM STEAM "cough" copy of the game.  but it wasn't too bad and i ended up finishing the game, i had a friend of mine try it, and well, it was unplayable on his computer. 

i would ASSUME the steam version eliminates this problem, but hit up a few forums to make sure.

I've played for about five months total.  It was only fun for the first few weeks.

Really, the biggest problem with EVE is that you progress so...damn...slowly...that you don't feel like you've even gotten anywhere after a few months.  The documentation is sparse, the learning curve is a cliff, and unless you wind up getting into a good corporation that invests heavily into newcomers and protects them in low/zero sec space you're not going to have the capital to do a damn thing except mine fucking asteroids all goddamn day and occasionally make a low level product that you can barely make any profit on.

Screw that.

Having the resources to work is only half of the battle, though.  Training can, literally, take days.  Sure, it continues to churn through the training even when you're offline, but when you start getting more and more things that require 7 days you'll find yourself waiting weeks before you can really do anything significant.

Plus, the user base is full of elitist pricks.  Sure, there are some that are willing to nurture new players, but all in all it reminds me of all the RTFM-bleating fucks in the Linux community.  Let's not even get into what kind of shit I got when I made the mistake of trying to talk about WoW with another player.

Training.

I've talked to EVE vets and found that some of the higher level skills can take upwards of a year of real-time to train.  Even some of the lower level skills take a week or more.  It's an unbelievable time and money sink.

but thats "good"

seriously, you will never reach the "maximum level" and can literally anybody can compete.  i mean, you can roll around in a cheap frigate and get your pvp on.  i mean, i like the system, i just never really experienced corp play. 

but what can i say, i never really tried it.  but ive read a hella lot about the game.
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Spectere on September 08, 2009, 01:05:31 AM
There are several harsh realities with the way that EVE handles PvP.

For one, anyone can be attacked at any time.  This definitely creates a feeling of danger, but given how people behave in online games it's more of an annoyance than anything else.  I've been attacked in high security space on multiple occasions.  CONCORD gets to the site, yes, but not always before the ganker puts serious hurt on your ship.

Second, there is no fucking around.  If you lose your ship, you lose your ship.  Considering how much effort it takes to really start making serious money, that can really set you back.

Third, if you don't remember to refresh your clones you can lose your training if you are to get podded.  Basically, when your ship is destroyed the pod that your player sits in gets ejected.  Needless to say, it's very fragile.  If a player decided to be a dick and blow you up, you can lose days of training if you don't keep shelling out money for improved clones.

It really pains me to toss EVE aside.  I really like the look and feel of the game, not to mention the mystery of being in deep space.  I just feel that there are several inherent flaws with the gameplay and community.  Things just move far too slowly for my liking and, while the in-game tutorials have improved, you really are left kind of lost in space (hah, you've just been PUNished) and overwhelmed.

But hey, give it a shot; they do have a trial available for it.  I'm interested to know what you think of it.

See, that's what's weird about me.  I essentially soloed from 1-80 in WoW.  Of course, this was 2.4.3 so the game was very soloable by that time.

I'm trying to figure out what exactly kept me drawn to WoW (and still keeps me drawn to it to this day).  The lore is definitely a plus, not to mention that you progress pretty quickly.  There's always something to do, be it PvE, PvP, farming, instances, etc.  Even now, over a year after I started, I'm still finding new things to do.  I just ran my first battleground (as a lv.39 priest) this weekend...it was fun.

Oh, I also managed to get Armegeddon addicted to it.  Roll a toon on Stormrage and play with us. ;D

i say the same thing about paying $60.00 for a game that will last me about 10 hours (ie most games coming out on consoles these days)

$15.00/month for a game i generally put lots of time into is a fucking steal for the amount of entertainment you get, even if you casually play.

i can understand one not understanding the "monthly fee" thing, but generally you get a better value when it comes to how much hours of game you get per dollar you pay. 

now obviously this depends on many factors (like the game you are playing, and how into the game you are) but typically it's worth it if you enjoy what you are playing i figure.

This. I pay $13.00 a month for FFXI, which equates to buying a newly-released game 3 times a year. In 4 months, I log more hours onto FFXI then I have for nearly any other game, and it's been that way for over 2 years. For many people, the continuing fee is an incentive to play it even more then they might otherwise be inclined to, as well; just to feel like they're continually getting their money's worth out of it.

im STILL thinking about eve, but i need bros who know what they are doing to play with first.

GOTTA GET GROUP MINAN BITCHES.  I GOT A FUCKIN OSPREY WITH TECH 2 MINERS SO ITS A GOOD START. lessn i start a new character, i mean, i might.  since the first two million skillpoints are like double speed, i may start a minmatar character (for the face) and then go piloting amaar ships.  i don't really like the high skill demand that minmatar ships have, and for a new player, i need something a bit more blunt.  like amaar "they shoot lasers, and can armor tank" HOLY SHIT THATS SIMPLE COMPARED TO "well it depends on the ship, they can either shield or armor tank, they generally use autoguns, but not always, and they are generally the fastest ships out there and require the most skills to use efficiently."

im in the "im going to talk about eve without actually playing it, though, im still very interested in playing yet intimidated to start cold because i don't feel like talking up random people to join a random corp" phase.

also im starting this thing with a friend of mine where i bring my xbox HDD and he plays banjo kazooie on the thing, till he beats the game with all the jiggies/music notes.  first session we got the first 3 levels completed (completed as in every item in the level obtained).  figure after he finishes that, ill continue my file on banjo-tooie till i beat it, then switch to him beating it.  IF we make it that far we can try and motivate eachother to beat nuts and bolts, because unlike the first two games, nuts and bolts is like...well ive delved into that already, but id like to beat it.

goddamnit, dark side on kotor defies my "i always pick the good choises in games which give me the choice" in games.

i am having a better time than i did with my light side character, and well, force user >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>...................>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>MEELELlee

plus like on the unknown world, i actually got to finally fucking do something ive wanted to do in this game.

big group of bitches come up to me and want me to come with them.  i tell them to fuck off im the goddamn lord revan, and they tell me i don't have a choice because the two rancor they have will kill me, it's retarded to even decline.  so literally tell them that i am invincible it's time for you to die.  

insanity...force storm spam...win.

I LOVE YOU KOTOR, I REALLY LOVE YOU!  it's a different mindset than lightside, it's more of a I AM FUCKING AWESOME/comedy playstyle rather than I AM LESS AWESOME BUT STILL BADASS/entertainment with less giggles playstyle.

i mean, the game slacked off for me near the end on my light side file, but maby i just find melee boring.  one enemy at a time, shit for force, lame.  dark side though...being able to fuck everything up at the same time ALONE is awesome, jolie being basically my number 2 (he's two levels behind getting the final force lightning) can kick serious ass, and carth brings on the single target PAIN.  im on the last planet and ive been enjoying the entire thing thus far, unlike the lightside file.

scuse the kotor circlejerk(im kind of a dick when it comes to circlejerkery though i do it more than everybody here combined, im just an all around ass, i don't care), y'all know i tldr on games i am currently spending time on.  kind of worried on what im going to play after i beat it though...maby ill end up fourth attempting to get into eve, actually talk to people and get into a corp this time.

yeah...ok im done typing.

-end post-...

actually no, one more thing.  the fuckin krayt dragon on tattoine, you know you kill him by using bantha as bait and he runs into the mines and shit...well i decided to try and kill him the old fashoned way.

'parently you can't do that, because when you enter the cave, the screen goes black and the game tells you that your entire party is dead...weaksauce.

k so i beat it agian.

really that playthrough just verified that i actually did enjoy the second game more.  kotor 2, while way buggier, and literally DOES NOT HAVE AN ENDING if you are darkside (i mean, they can't call what happens an ending...they just can't), overall it's a more enjoyable experience.

i mean kotor 2 lacks a planet/world/whatever in which is annoying to play through.  kotor 1....STAR FORGE.  god damn really REALLY annoying level to play through, but i mean, whatever, i can yell at my monitor and get shit done.  as for the boss...well ok revan isn't as hard as "insert boss of kotor2 here not mentioning it because it's a rather huge spoiler", which means the kotor 2 boss is kind of retarded and ive heard people exploting terrain or some shit just to beat it(i didn't...but god damn it wasn't easy, especially being a fragile force user).  but still, revan, KITE KITE KITE KITE FORCE USER CANT STAND PUNISHMENT.  see, he will do a stun and go to town on my ass...stun again and kill me, so always kiting with force storm...and killing the jedi health corpses as well. 

that paragraph didn't make sense, i don't care.  kotor 1 beaten, dark side, it was ok.  i mean TINY TEXT = SPOILRDX killing literally four of your party members off and having one run away from you, i seriously didn't expect that.  fuckin jolie could have helped a lot in the star forge, but his sith opposing ass needed to die.  and bastilla not going to the light side and staying darkside, she turned from a bitch to a bro, i like dark side bastilla.  she's no jolie, he was a bro, but i mean, he had other priorities which interfered with my TOTALLY EVIL OPRAH LOOKALIKE CHARACTER. seriously, if anything, i learned that jolie doesn't suck, and he's my favorite party member to be honest.  this includes kotor 2, i mean, i didn't even use party members.  you get like too powerful in that game (maby because unlike the first game, they "gasp" give you items which increase wisdom) to the point where clicking ally attacks is retarded since everything dies before they can act.

Had alumni band rehearsal tonight.  Was pretty fun.  Some parts were a bit confusing though, like having to learn new versions of the school's fight song and the Star Spangled Banner.  I guess since they got rid of the clarinet section in the showband after I graduated, they thought it was best to play different versions.

It wouldn't be so confusing if we still didn't have to play the old version of the fight song during our OWN show though.  We're playing the new one with the high school band during their pre-game show for the festival, and then we're on with our own.  In which case we'll be playing the OLD version.

At least I don't have to try to remember my old version of the Star Spangled Banner on top of the new one.  The clarinet part we had was so weird.  And now I just get to play the trumpet or tenor sax part.


I'm also incredibly amused and pleased by the fact that I was able to memorize all of the show's music in about fifteen minutes.  To be fair, one song is really easy and repetitive.  But still, it was nice that to see that I'm really not out of practice with memorization. 


The only part that's upsetting me at all is the fact that it doesn't seem as if we're going to be doing any dancing.  Yeah, some of us are kind of old (We've got some people that graduated in the early '70s') but cripes.  We've always been a showband.  We're supposed to dance.  :(  We danced in the last alumni show!  Albeit not very well as we only had two days of practice to work with, but this time we've got more!  *grrface*

Had alumni band rehearsal tonight.  Was pretty fun.  Some parts were a bit confusing though, like having to learn new versions of the school's fight song and the Star Spangled Banner.  I guess since they got rid of the clarinet section in the showband after I graduated, they thought it was best to play different versions.

It wouldn't be so confusing if we still didn't have to play the old version of the fight song during our OWN show though.  We're playing the new one with the high school band during their pre-game show for the festival, and then we're on with our own.  In which case we'll be playing the OLD version.

At least I don't have to try to remember my old version of the Star Spangled Banner on top of the new one.  The clarinet part we had was so weird.  And now I just get to play the trumpet or tenor sax part.


I'm also incredibly amused and pleased by the fact that I was able to memorize all of the show's music in about fifteen minutes.  To be fair, one song is really easy and repetitive.  But still, it was nice that to see that I'm really not out of practice with memorization. 


The only part that's upsetting me at all is the fact that it doesn't seem as if we're going to be doing any dancing.  Yeah, some of us are kind of old (We've got some people that graduated in the early '70s') but cripes.  We've always been a showband.  We're supposed to dance.  :(  We danced in the last alumni show!  Albeit not very well as we only had two days of practice to work with, but this time we've got more!  *grrface*
tldr: Jupi blows :-* me too

I'm playing the timpanis this year for one of my school's marching band's songs.  Once you've memorised like eight basic patterns, the initial tunings for the four movements, and the timing, it's really easy.

thinking about making a loli cleric.  or whichever class gets the skimpiest armor, y'know, like half of the playerbase is going to do.

You oughta try it.  :P  It's quite fun.

Well, I took music class in school (not all the way through). I played flute. Fun instrument, once you learn the fingerings (which are complicated as fuck when you first see them, then easy as shit to remember), and learn that if a note isn't sounding right, you can rotate the flute a bit to get it to play right.

I swear that the reason 95% can't get a proper sound out of it is because they don't know about rotating it. (actually, as you climb up the scale, IIRC, you slowly rotate it away from you, and down the scale you rotate it towards you).

What stopped me was that I had taken the grade 9 music class late (as in, there's a separate class for grade 10s taking it late, and I was in grade 11 when I took that class). Well, I ended up dropping one of my classes that semester and joining the actual grade 9 class at the same time (so I essentially had 2 music classes covering the same thing... No need to practice at home :P).

But I stopped after that.

beats the shit out of retail.  no worry of "ohh god i hope the store has the game i want, i hope they aren't sold out" or ordering a physical copy online "goddamnit i hope it ships on time, it better fucking get here".  with digital it's, fucking ron popiel SET IT AND FORGET IT, downloading the game as i type this, when thats' all done, when the day comes to play it, double click my desktop icon and im golden.

We decided that since paper money is easily destroyed, and $1 bills would be damn common, they would be thew ones getting most damaged. So instead of having to constantly make more bills to replace the ones that are damaged, we decided on something that's a lot tougher.

And the $2 coin (the toonie) came in 1996. According to wikipedia: "It costs 16 cents to mint a Toonie, which is estimated to last 20 years. The discontinued two-dollar bill cost six cents to print and, on average, each bill lasted only one year." They are also more convenient than having a ton of loonies when you've got a considerable amount of coinage.

Also, we have different colored bills because it's easier to tell them apart without having to actually read anything. If you see a blue bill, you know it's a 5, if it's purple, 10, green, a 20, red, a 50, and brown, a 100.

lol. well, they do weigh more, but in general, your not going to have more than 5 or so of them on you at any given time, and most places will give you toonies to avoide having too many coins, if they're giving you change less than $5.

Post by: Bobbias on September 19, 2009, 02:29:25 PM
Yeah, I can understand using bills for some of the larger denominations, especially colored, so you can easily tell the difference. If you had coins for all those different values, you would either have to create a bunch of different sizes, and some would be huge, or come up with some way to easily tell the difference, because you'd have so many different types that all looked alike.

But considering that a bill is so easily damaged, coins definitely make more sense.

If anyone had actually read the wikipedia article, they'd notice that there is currently a bill on the floor that, if ratified, would abolish the penny. Strangely, I'm not so sure that will happen.

My mom overdoes everything and it's amazing.

So the car keys have been missing, right, and she sent me an e-mail Sunday night saying "go ahead and order a new set of keys". I called her Monday afternoon, after most of my classes, to ask what dealership she got the car from and where the title was. She told me that she was on the way to the dealer's and was getting three keys made - one for her, two for me - and wanted to know when I'd be available to pick it up. When I did pick it up, we tested all three keys, I kept two, and got a container of cookies and a container of canteloupe.

I'm not entirely sure what to think about that, but I'm amazed, to say the least.

(By the way, the spare keys were lost by my dad in 2003 a few weeks after we actually got the car, so I was carrying around the only set for the previous year and a half. My track record is much, much better than his.)

Seeing the amount of Halo ODST adds RIGHT NEXT to the Halo ODST review on giant bomb kind of makes me uneasy. Then again it didn't get a perfect rating, so who knows.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_odst#Reception there are a whole bunch of reviews there, and all of them give it a pretty good score.

I like halo. Sure, there are some annoying things in the autoaim, and lots of other little things that make it far from perfect, but I still say that it's a well made series of games. I find them fun to play with friends, either co-op or FFA battles.

I enjoyed the series, and really only played thru all 3 to get the story, whatever story there was to have. Online play has always been iffy with me, because it seems to me that they never really made the chief haul ass anywhere. The light 'jogging' he does just irks me, with no real 'sprint' button (think CoD 4).  Even if he is running/jogging ALL the time, the way it's animated just looks and feels like a fast-walk with no urgency.  You'd think the super bionic super marine would be able to run quicker.  Doesn't make the game horrible, just a design aspect I'd wish they'd alter.

Yeah, that was always in the back of my mind. And I've never actually played online at all, so I can't comment on the online stuff at all, but I find that playing through co-op with a couple friends and some beer generally makes for a fun night. Especially on legendary :P

Honestly, I think I prefer the older maps to the new ones, for multiplayer.  I feel like the multiplayer thrives either on large matches with a bunch of people (note that I've never actually gotten into a very large match), or small vicious matches in cramped close quarters, and there's way too much emphasis on large open maps in the newer games. I loved Boarding Action, and A Short Walk, among other early halo series maps.

I've never played any of the battlefield games (Battlefront yes, but that's mostly AIs so you can't compare it) so I wouldn't know all about that, but unless it's a tight teamwork game like CS or NeoTokyo it's not that great to have only a few people on each team.

Then again Halo only has a handful of weapons that are even decent in ranged combat.

I enjoy some of the multiplayer maps.

The thing that I don't enjoy about Halo multiplayer is the auto-aim.  I've literally died because the game started auto-aiming me in mid-jump and I wound up falling into the nether.  Fucking bullshit.

It's fun to run through the Halo games every once in a while with a buddy on legendary.  The Halo games aren't what I'd call revolutionary (though they did a fine job in refining how console FPS games control) but they are solid games nonetheless.

So I don't own a psp, or a pspGo, but the way that Sony can't make UMD conversions is pretty ridiculous. I'm sure there could have been some way to engineer the pspGo to fit those tiny fucking discs. 

http://tgs.gamespot.com/story/6230410/no-umd-conversion-for-psp-go
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Spectere on September 27, 2009, 06:14:12 PM
I'm actually glad that they removed the UMD drive from the Go.  Really, the biggest thing that held the PSP back as a viable mobile platform is the drive.  Using UMDs on a PSP Phat will net you about 2-3 hours of battery life.  Using a memory stick on the same system will more than double that.  I like my PSP, but if I had to rely on UMDs I'd like it far less.

The inability to do UMD conversions does suck, but at the same time I can see why they'd limit that.  If they allowed people to convert UMDs using a PSP 1000-3000 they'd essentially be offering what CFWs are already capable of, and would open the door to mass-piracy.  After all, what's to prevent someone from renting a bucket-load of UMDs and getting them all converted?

They could technically start a UMD exchange program, where they have people mail in their UMD games and get the same title available to download on their PSN account, but then they'd have to employ an entire department of people to do nothing but sit there, sorting UMDs.

Another issue are games with idiotic copy protection, such as the later DJ MAX games and, no doubt, some others.  Direct conversion of those titles as-is would be nigh impossible.

When you think about it, there's just no good, reliable way to do it.  Either they open the door to "legitimate piracy" or they employ people to do something incredibly menial with no real monetary benefit.

Post by: Spectere on September 27, 2009, 08:43:10 PM
One significant advantage of using 9-10 fingers to type is that it dramatically reduces hand movement.  You'll probably find that you can type longer, with less strain on your wrists, even if it doesn't improve your speed all that much.

Really, the biggest thing that the pinkies are used for are two major home row keys ('a' and 'l') and a number of uncommonly-used keys.  That's probably why your speed doesn't seem to have improved by much.

I also tend to only use a couple main fingers to type. I think the biggest thing I need to do is reduce the number of errors I make. I'm fine when I look at the stuff I'm typing, but if I'm typing something up in class off the board or an overhead or something, I make a TON of mistakes. I'm not particularly fast as it is, but much better than I was a couple years ago.

is it ironic that like JUST RECENTLY (ie about 20 minutes ago) im barely starting to get the hang of tick throw timing and reversal throws.  it would help to be friends with a sf2 vet, but i guess i learn things slowly.  still, when an opponent forces me to think, i generally learn.  like if a ken ticks into his knee, over and over, you know, i get a bit more concerned on when i should be executing my throws.  but the knee throw or throws you have to mash out of, IM GOOD AT THAT, and when i do giefs version, depending on the person, i can do 1/3 damage to some people. 

yeah, that. 

ohh, i ran into an akuma who ragequit on me.  he responded he quits on gief, honda, and hawk.  it's funny, i hate fighting akuma, and i main gief, honda, and hawk...so i beat him three times with gief and one with honda for good measure.

I saw them DF live and enjoyed it. I'm not really a big fan, but I have to admit that I find a lot of their stuff rather catchy (well, their older stuff). But yeah, I've heard so many people say they sound like shit, or they just suck live, and when I heard them, they were amazing.

And their sound equalization was completely off so it all just smashed together and sounded god awful. You could barely hear the singer. I don't know why they changed it after Sonata played because they had it set perfectly.

The only people cheering during DF's songs were below 17.

I do love that it was an all-ages show, but no one cared about swearing at all. The super parents who were guarding their kids like bulldogs were hilarious.

No, Sonata did Full Moon, 8th Commandment, Don't Say A Word, Flag in the Ground (from their newest album that just came out), In Black & White, for some reason I can't remember which slow song they did and they did some song I've never heard from them before and then their Vodka closer into an ending that I've never seen them do before. It felt like they were only on for a few minutes but I guess that was probably 40-50 minutes, which was a lot longer than Taking Dawn, the first opener, who wasn't especially good. Since it was all All Ages they had to keep pushing forward to get done by 9, which is lame. We actually left at about 8:30 (show started at 6pm with the first band taking about 25-30 minutes, then 20 minutes of breakdown, then set up for Sonata, then 40 minutes then another 30 or so for Dragonforce to set up) since Dragonforce had gotten boring.

I was sad that Sonata didn't do Black Sheep or The Cage. I don't think Revontulet is done live very often, if ever. They try to keep it to songs with vocals.

Actually, canada's not bad for the young vote, as far as I know. My friends, my brother and I all voted.

Of course, most of them voted NDP, and unfortunately, the NDP lost pretty painfully in that election. I voted liberal because they're a LOT more likely to win than the NDP, and I just wanted the fucking conservatives (AKA the fucking reform party, since there's pretty much nobody left from the original conservative party) out of power.

Well, I just got through a gallstone. It was EXTREMELY painful. Woke up at 6am with an explosion of pain in my gall bladder. Lasted until 9:30am when I woke up after having passed out from no sleep, pain and after I had curled up into a ball.

Went to the doctor and now I've set up an ultrasound to check out my insides to see what's up. Hopefully I can prevent another one by a change in diet. So now I'm down to no caffeine, lots and lots of water, reduced amount of milk, no heavy red meats, lots of rice, apple sauce, bananas, no fried foods, etc.

It's scary, but it's all about moderation. I can still have something fried, but not some ginormous amount with fries and a coke. I can have cheese, but not so much that it melts over the side of everything. I can have a burger here and there, but no some half pound double bacon cheeseburger heart attack.

Honestly, if I currently had insurance, I would actually be pressing for the surgery. Can't really have gallstones when you don't have a gall bladder. And it's a really simple and quick procedure from what my dad went through. In and out of the hospital in one day if you get in early enough. I have no way of paying for it right now though so I have to tough it out and reform my diet. It'll be much better for me in the long run anyway.

Holy shit, ow. :(

Hope all of that passes soon because...damn, ow.

At least something good came out of it, though.  Moderation is a good thing.  Cutting back on caffeine alone has made me feel quite a bit better in the long run, and cutting back my fast food intake has helped considerably as well.  Also, working at a shop that's right next door to a Subway has many advantages. :)

I made my Firefox all glassy last week:

Really liking the minimalism.  Like IE, tapping ALT will bring up the menu.  After hiding it, I find it kind of amazing how little I use the menu bar.  About the only thing I used it for in most cases is managing bookmarks, but the sidebar does a much better job anyway, and it's just a CTRL+B away.

Here's a list of the extensions I'm using, for curious parties:


It's been working out quite well so far.  I RIKE IT :3

thursday, friday, saturday

three days back to back to back, being INCREDIBLY busy.  busy enough to where we aint got no more flour to make any more dough after i made dough today.  lets hope they got enough to last till monday afternoon.

also played about 80 minutes of street fighter 2, because well, after a long hard day of work, i need 15 wendys nuggets, 24oz of monster, and over 30 matches of street fighter 2 to unwind.  

i won about 12, lost about 19....5 of those losses was the 5 times i picked t hawk.  t hawk is hard to use mang.  would have won more, but i fought like 5 good cammys in a row, and i fucking suck against a good cammy.  save for that, as usual, it was a shotofest.  RYU RYU KEN KEN KEN KEN AKUMA AKUMA AKUMA AKUMA RYU RYU KEN KEN KEN, balrog, KEN RYU AKUMA AKUMA cammy cammy cammy cammy cammy (seriousy, surprised me) RYU KEN KEN RYU AKUMA RYU chun li RYU KEN KEN t hawk AKUMA AKUMA AKUMA zangief(quit before round 1) balrog (same person as gief, and he ragequit during round 2) fei long(3-0 him, but he took the loss like a man).  had a few nice dee jay matches, really need to use him more often.  

also like if they dragon punch/headbutt/whatever dp type move me, and im a little too far away to spd, i got to get it ingraned in my head that "st forward kick, hey it beats whiffing an spd"

ok, so i installed sf4 on my HDD for about an hour....and then i deleted it and im reinstalling cod4 back on the HDD.  that game...no.  it's like on the same tier is banjo nuts and bolts, i feel dirty for just having it in my 360, and i need to wear gloves when touching the disc as to not get any of the filth on my hands. 

i WILL be buying SSFIV.  but i will only play sf4 with irl friends, since all of my irl friends hate fighting games, you can see that i won't be playing that game anymore, period.  for those who said it was like super turbo but 3d, play the fucking game first, it's like super turbo if super turbo was submerged in jello, with stupid game mechanics like "ultra meter" and whatnot.  you could go "YOU HATE IT BECAUSE YOU SUCK AT IT" like a jackass, and be right.  why would i want to get better at the game...if im not having fun trying to get better...same goes for aion below.  why would i suffer through unfun gameplay (ie grinding to the level cap) to get to fun gameplay (the pvp at the level cap) ?  im not going to do that, i have better things to be doing...like watching random youtube videos, or eating fast food. 

that's all, im not talking about that game anymore.

and i canceled the aion account.  it's not a bad game, and a few years ago, you know, i would probably keep on truckin.  but now, i have other games i enjoy playing, and when i would rather be playing one of those (SF2 GODDAMN I CANT QUIT PLAYING THEE) why would i pay for a subscription?  fuck, i may resubscribe if a patch down the road looks interesting, but i mean, i already can't sit in a game for more than an hour without stopping, and playing an mmo with that kind of attention span ain't happening. 

so yeah, now that that's done with.  i might go attempt to get through ff12 or x2 again.  i tend to enjoy those for short spurts then get bored of them.  so as long as i keep playing them every few months, one day, ill have them both beaten.

You know, I'd be fine with you saying you disliked the game if you didn't basically call it absolutely garbage and then say, "no no that's the way I feel is cool if you like that game" but then "it's totally garbage I feel dirty for touching it." Like, work on not using histrionics for everything. But whatever, you don't care, I don't care, no one cares.

I started to go back over how I used to eat and really looked at some of the foods I used to have as my staples when I needed something quick. Jesus christ I didn't realize Totino's pizzas had 4 grams of trans fats in just half the pizza. I used to eat the whole pizza since they were only the size of a small TV dinner. I've still got 3 of them and I'm not going to throw them away but at least I know I need to only eat a little bit of them at a time.

and you should know i express my opinion on the far ends of a spectrum, it's not like it's something recent and new ive been doing, it's what i do.  im a hypocrite at that, and every person who posts here should know that, complaining about it just makes me post more.  though, you obviously enjoy my responses, else you would have not posted in the first place.  and obviously i enjoy responding, or "take a bit of a guess" i wouldn't have responded in the first place.

when i get frustrated, i bitch.  im sure if i made a hardcore barbarian in diablo 2 (my favorite game, period) and got him to level 99 with the rarest gear in the game only to die from some lightning enhanced multiple shots mob, i would probably call diablo 2 a shit game and the worst game i have ever played, even though it is my favorite game of all time and no game even comes close to that.  

though, i guess im glad you post here since typing these posts is a nice timekiller, and well, it's rather entertaining.  im starting to make sure i state this, because alot of my bitchfest tldr posts aren't as much to get my word across as they are me "not taking the internet seriously bro" as i just said, for entertainment.  i mean, why the fuck else would i post on 4chan's /v/.  because of it's awesome community?  fuck no, but rather because it's just fun to post there.  it's more fun than playing aion for sure. 

i guess while i am here, instead of posting in that "games you look forward too" and this game is already out...

He doesn't necessarily enjoy your responses. He responds because he feels like he needs to. Not everyone sees things the way you do. Some people just feel compelled to respond to something, regardless of what sort of response that will get them. Hell, I know I can be annoying when I compulsively correct someone on mispronouncing a word, or explaining the meaning of a word or something.... But I still do it.

Yes, that's just how you are. Unfortunately, seeing someone bitch like that can piss people off. I used to get pissed off when you bitched about something I enjoyed, but I learned to just ignore it. Eggman obviously is still getting pissed (or at the very least mildly irritated) when he reads you bitching about something that obviously isn't as bad as you describe it.

(http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/2651/trollan.jpg)

if you don't like it, don't respond.  i respond because i enjoy this kind of thing.  it's that simple.  but i mean if my tldr's goad you into responding, and you don't like it, think again before clicking the post button, because it's just more fuel to the fire.  you could get spectere to ban me as well, but it didn't work in the past.  i mean, ill spare y'all what pirotknix did spaming goatse and whatnot. win win situation for me.  if i get banned, im gone, cool.  if i don't get banned, i can piss you and eggman off, i enjoy doing that.  see, win win.  im not exactly trying to be a nice guy here. 

also don't bother going "vlad you're so immature" ill just refer you to my beautiful mspaint image above.  i mean this community is rather small, id estimate at least most of y'all don't like me, if you want to remove me, just talk to the man in the big chair and make it happen. 

the tldr version is ill do what i damn well please, and responding to my bullshit posts only generates more, if you don't like it, don't fucking respond, fucking dumbass, limit my bullshit to one post rather than several pages. 

ok i think im done.  hopefully forum addiction doesn't bring me back tomorrow.  i said a week damnit, so i guess next wednesday.

Quite true, actually. This forum sees a lot less activity as a whole when your not around.

However, despite that, I am getting damn tired of the same crap over and over again. Would it hurt be a bit more fucking inventive with your flaming? Seriously. I mean, flaffle's a dick too, but he only shows up every now and again, and his flames/random shit seem more thought out than your random "i'ma dick, so I'm going to post random tldr crap to bug people".

Looks like I'll be going in for surgery to have my gall bladder removed after all. At least, I can't imagine they'd have me set up a "surgical consultation" if they didn't think I needed it done. At least this way, I get to pick a day and just have it done in the morning and be home by bed time (probably) and not have it be because of another attack. It's a super simple surgery too. Very little scarring (just some little holes in my stomach).

I'm still not looking forward to surgery though. But it will be nice to have this behind me.

One of my teachers had his gall bladder removed last year.  There is indeed very little scarring, and afterward he basically only couldn't lift heavy stuff for a few weeks and had to get a lot of rest.

I know you don't like Windows, but you don't need to be so harsh.

Seriously, OS X's "security" is garbage (as of Leopard...I haven't touched Snow Leopard, but I doubt it's any better).  The only way it could get worse is if Apple disabled system update by default.

I wouldn't really say that Vista is inherently unresponsive, either, you just need a beefy system for it to beat XP (2GB of RAM will do it).  Windows 7, on the other hand, outperforms XP with only 1GB of RAM without compromising on the high-end systems.  That's the beauty of it.

Oh, and there's the new taskbar.  It's like a dock without the shitty parts (being unable to rely on muscle memory being the biggest one).  Window peeking is also an awesome window management feature.  Pretty comparable to Expos

I get your point, but at that particular time, you weren't being a cashier.  You were being a lumber boy.


Not that I think any of us here have ever said "Being a cashier isn't a dangerous job" for whatever reason. 

Still.  Sucks.

I wouldn't really say that Vista is inherently unresponsive, either, you just need a beefy system for it to beat XP (2GB of RAM will do it).  Windows 7, on the other hand, outperforms XP with only 1GB of RAM without compromising on the high-end systems.  That's the beauty of it.

I still don't think 2GB is exactly "beefy" in terms of memory any more... I mean, when a $550 laptop from wallmart comes standard with 2 GB, I think that's an indication.

Long story short: Windows 7 is what Vista should have been.

Hell, microsoft hasn't exactly tried to dispel that line of thought.  From the moment they said they were releasing a new versions of windows in a relatively short timeline after vista, I knew that was the point. I mean, Vista was a BIG change in quite a few areas of windows, and they didn't exactly have a proper team set up constantly working on development, when they started working on Vista. Basically, Vista was a test bed to see what worked, and what didn't, in their new redesign of windows. And Windows 7 was the end product. I honestly don't think that Vista was ever intended on being a primary system for a long time.

You actually need your ice scraper? How much snow are you getting? We just got a bit of stuff that was almost all melted the next morning... and it was above freezing the whole time.

About 2-3 inches I'd guess total? It's still falling. It's the really really wet and clumpy kind so it's sticking to car pretty thickly. It's melting off the cement pretty quickly though.

I'd hardly say that requires a scraper, the wipers should be able to clear off your windshield, and you can wipe the stuff off the rearwith your hand or something, lol.


Then again, I should realize, your american, and in general, americans seem to be much worse at dealing with snow than canadians, lol.

Seriously, I've heard so many stories about places closing down after a couple inches have fallen. Here, we don't close crap down unless you physically can't drive your car through the snow.

My wiper blades are pretty crappy and while yes they would push the snow off, they'd also smear it all over the place. And I have yet to replace my wiper fluid so I couldn't just spray some of that. It just wasn't worth the effort.

It's more like I'm bored and you're the only one talking so really no matter what I do, I have to respond to you or else it's all just random bullshit. You basically create every topic of conversation around here, which usually ends up being pretty funny because it results in the same thing every time.

glad to see we are on the same page.

i am kind of samey about it, i should get a bit more creative, though im more of a "BLABLABLA, BLA!" kind of guy.  more random typing, less making sense, it's my style.  i mean, i just like to bitch about things that irritate me at the time.  it's why i over react all of the time, because generally "FUCK RAGE...i gotta relieve said rage by typing it out for people to read on the internet" and then i feel good.

but anyway, it's been kind of a blah week, no real desire to play anything and my cold is coming back, hence im a bit irritable. 

it's always healthy to take breaks from stuff every now and then.  seriously, i have my fighting stick in the closet (which i spent 3 hours cleaning) and i haven't played any of that stuff for like 5 days now. 

also speaking of ice scrapers, it's finally starting to get a bit cooler here.  had to scrape the frost off from my van for the first time since like early march just so i could go out and grab some 5am mc donnalds.  soon enough my windows will freeze shut, and i will just lose the desire to go before the lobby opens.  this is good and bad.  bad because no mc donnalds, good because ill live to see another year.

Then again, I should realize, your american, and in general, americans seem to be much worse at dealing with snow than canadians, lol.

really depends on where you live my brother.  we have fucking cold places, we have fucking hot places.  far as i know about canada, is cold.  also is it me or is driving in the snow fun?  i enjoy it anyway. 

last topic of this post is sf4.  i need to find a main in that sonbitch.  it's frustrating pissing around with characters going "well, i kind of like x y and z about him, but i just can't get over "x" aspect on him".  i mean it mainly goes to my dislike of my two ST mains, honda and gief, kind of leaving me in the dark.  maby i should go back to where i started and learn balrog.

typical vlad big post, ain't like i have anything better to be doing.

You're speaking to a Minnesotan. I'm more accustomed to snow than probably 80% of Canada. I'm actually pretty insulted by your comment.

Sorry, I didn't intend it to be insulting, but let me point something out here. Southern Ontario is further south than any other part of Canada.... But we happen to be in the snow belt, thanks to the great lakes, so we get a fuckton of snow. But pretty much anywhere in Canada except the maritimes and BC get snow. Significant amounts of it.

I know the whole "americans suck at winter" stuff is only a stereotype, and doesn't apply to everyone, but considering that a good portion of canada is north of the states, and generally gets more snow, there is at least some truth to the fact that canadian winter is generally worse than american winter. Of course, I'd take getting fucktons of snow over being in the prairies, where it might drop down to like, -40 on a slightly colder than average day (not including wind chill).

I'd forgotten how far north Minnesota actually is, but I should point out that Winnipeg is north of Minnesota, and everyone should remember that "Winnipeg is a Frozen Shithole". Which is very true. Ask anyone who's ever been there, lol. Also, what part of Minnesota are you in? Because the southern part is pretty close to the same area as I am (I'm about 50 km north of barrie, which I'm amazed shows up at a decent zoom level in google maps)

But yeah, just remember that probably 80% of canada is farther north than you, and I'm talking form the position of someone who happens to be in the snow belt (thanks to the fucking jet stream, and the great lakes).

There are ice scraper things that cost like $5 at wal-mart and you can just shove them under your seat when you don't need them, if that helps

Yeah, there are plenty of options when it comes to those things, and they aren't hard to keep on hand at all times. We have our scraper somewhere in the car even during the middle of the summer... We just leave it kicking around in the car all year round.

I remember there was like one morning a few years back where ice actually formed on my friends windows and the wiper wouldn't instantly take it off so everyone was confused as to what to do.

To be fair, when the people of a city aren't used to getting snow, "just an inch or two" can REALLY fuck their day up.  They probably wouldn't have the equipment to deal with it, so shit really WOULD shut down.  :/

Post by: Bobbias on October 13, 2009, 02:31:19 AM
With "just an inch or two", you can still drive perfectly fine, unless your using something like racing flats on your car.

Sure, you need to be a bit more careful, because it will be more slipery, but with that much, there really isn't any equipment or anything necessary to deal with it.

I mean, I've driven through slush on the highway that is something like and inch or 2 deep, and done 100 km/h through it.

Sure, I can see a foot, or more closing things down (not that that is exactly much anyway) just due to people not knowing how to drive in snow (which just requires taking a bit of care, and driving a bit slower), but an inch or 2 shouldn't be an issue.

My mom taught me the best way to learn how to get out of  a "fish tail"  is to do "dougnuts" in an empty parking lot.  Granted make sure there is no cops around but it really does help. 

The only reason my mom is one of the better drivers in the snow around this area is because she is from Colorado and when she was growing up she had at least a foot of snow to drive in...granted that is an ideal snow fall there.

Well,doing doghnuts definitely helps you get a feel for how your car moves when it slides. Actually, when your car fishtails, you should steer into the spin (if your making a left turn, and the rear end fishtails, you would steer to the right, instead of to the left). When you do that, you are basically trying to move the front end in the same direction that the beck end is going, so the back end doesn't keep whipping around the front end. After steering into the turn, there's a point where your wheels will catch again, and you need to steer in the direction you want to go again.

Instead of doing doghnuts, the better way to learn that sort of thing is drifting in parking lots. You drive forward, begin to make a turn, pull the emergency brake, and then try counter steering, like I described above. If you do that successfully, you can have a lot of control over where the car goes. My friends have a habit of drifting around corners when they're driving in town in winter for fun.

Man, I haven't been around for a while.

Don't worry about it, Bobbias. I was just playing with you.

I'm originally from Brainerd, which is sort of the north middle part of Minnesota. It's also in a valley (sort of) so it gets much more snow accumulation that you'd think. Down here in the Twin Cities area it's crazy to get something like 7 inches of snow but Brainerd usually gets snowfall of around 20 inches in one day at least a few times per year. My family was also extremely poor when we lived there and we went an entire year without any actual heat so yeah, I know cold pretty well.

Also, I am definitely having surgery to have my gallbladder removed now. It's next Friday, which is crazy fast to me, but is apparently normal. I'm still not looking forward to it. BUT, they've already told me that, after looking at my ultrasound and my overall symptoms (re: only gallstones and none of the other stuff like constant vomiting, nausea, fever, or more attacks), I'll be in for surgery in the morning and able to go home by midday. So that sounds good. Really sad part is that I can't lift over 10 pounds for a week after the surgery...and my cat weighs 22 pounds. Yeah he's a big fatty and the cutest thing ever. And then two weeks after surgery I should be able to go back to eating my normal diet, which can include hamburger and pizza again, though in much better moderation. So hooray for that I guess. Drinking only water and eating chicken/fish with rice is getting really boring. I've lost like 10 pounds though!

Also, Microsoft can suck a dick. Seriously, it takes them four days to ship me a shipping label so I can send in my broken 360. Then it takes another four days for it to reach them so it won't get there until Monday. Then it'll be another 2-3 WEEKS from then before my 360 gets shipped back. Then it'll be another four days for shipping it back to me. If I'm lucky it'll get back by November 13th, which means I'll have purchased Magnacarta 2 AND Modern Warfare 2 before I even have my system back. UGH. I hate having two brand-new games to play and having to pick between them.

Long post.

I'm originally from Brainerd, which is sort of the north middle part of Minnesota. It's also in a valley (sort of) so it gets much more snow accumulation that you'd think. Down here in the Twin Cities area it's crazy to get something like 7 inches of snow but Brainerd usually gets snowfall of around 20 inches in one day at least a few times per year. My family was also extremely poor when we lived there and we went an entire year without any actual heat so yeah, I know cold pretty well.

Man, thats balls. We've had troubles with our furnace before, and had no heat for like, a day, and that was bad enough :/

Surgery and microsoft sux...

I mentioned that someone I knew online was possibly gonna have to have his gallbladder removed. They mentioned how it's one of the most minor surgeries you can get. With all those non-invasive procedures they have now, it shouldn't be bad at all. Though yeah, it's surgery, and I personally would still be scared shitless, lol.

And yeah, it's fucking terrible that they don't have a better way to do the shipping.... But I'm kinda used to waiting a while when I do anything like that, because whenever I buy something with my paypal, it takes a week for the fucking e-check to go through before anything will be shipped :/ Sometimes I really wish I had a fucking credit card. But I've got no money to make payments with, and my parents dont want me with one anyway.

Well, I am old enough, but I understand why they don't want me to have one, and if I do get one, they'll bitch about it all the time, and I don't want to listen to that. I am still living at home.

I'm living at home because it's a lot cheaper than living on my own, and I want to get through college with as little debt as possible. I've seen what large amounts of debt can do to people.

Plus, if I'm gonna get any sort of credit, it'll likely be a line of credit, because they have lower lending rates.

I started making a UT CTF map, tested it out, and realized it was WAY too big.  I tried making it smaller with the scaling tool, but that couldn't make a 256x256x256 brush properly scale down to 128x128x128 (the best I could get was 128x128x(something slightly smaller than 128), not sure what kind of Idiot Design made it work like that, but it's sure as hell noticable when you're trying to put brushes together).  Looks like I'll have to start it over, or deal with designing and decorating a map that's about 2x bigger in each direction than it should be (it's big enough you could use it as a Strangelove CTF map if it were complete).  At least I didn't get that far before I noticed. :x

Really, it seems like I have the luck of only having to restart my UT maps after having done preliminary design on them.  I have a couple of other incomplete CTF maps laying around (one is pretty much finished save for some lighting that needs to be fixed, the other is about half done), maybe I'll find some time to get all of these finished up and release them.

qft, if you want to make payments or buy stuffs online, get a checking account (assuming you have one already) and just get the debit card for it. i thought this was what all peoples did when they got one. DO IT

I've really never used cash or checks for more than the things that require cash and don't take debit card at all, like small chinese restaurants or certain venues I've been at.

I'm trying to sign up for Medicaid. Otherwise this thing will cost me $10,000 and I'll be filing for bankruptcy the second this is over with, which is ridiculous because it would literally be the first time I've ever had any debt of any kind. If I get my application accepted by Medicaid (and it should considering I have $400 to my name in total, no job, no job coming up because I'm waiting until after this surgery to continue looking, and I have no help from my parents since all of their money is tied up in getting a house and the car I drive isn't even in my name so technically I don't even own a car. I have zero assets aside from the money in my checking account), then they'll pay for all of it or nearly all of it.

I still think it's really weird that I've never even received an offer for a credit card by mail. My mom gets those things all the goddamn time and I've never gotten one. I'd like to actually have a credit card that I could just use on small things and instantly pay them off just so I can have SOME form of credit.

I have a debit card (aka bank card, aka, not useful online, except for logging into my online banking stuff). I have -$2 something in my account right now, thanks to service fees and no income. My car isn't in my name yet, my parents have been paying for my education so far...

I think I'm worth less than you, lol.

But regardless, yeah, I'd like to have a credit card, even for buying little stuff and then paying it back right away... But I also don't want the trouble of having something that I can spend money that isn't mine with... I might end up using it for something i won't have the money to pay off for a long time.

So after writhing in pain for several days, I mustered up the testicular fortitude and went to the dentist today.  (I'm a pretty big wuss when it comes to several things.  Doctors, dentists, librarians, etc.)

Unsurprisingly, among a few other things, I need to get either a root canal, or to just get this damn tooth pulled.  Due to insurance issues, they couldn't do much for me today other than prescribe me some Vicodin.  At first they were like "lol, you have no dental insurance, you silly goose."  But then I was like "Bullshit, my dad has been to this very place and gotten work done without having to drop $4,400 for it." 

Turns out they were looking through the wrong carrier.  I'll still have to drop a pretty penny on all of this, but now that I've proven that I do have insurance, I can possibly get out of this for under a thousand.  Maybe.  It'll be a lot lower if I just say "fuck it" and get the tooth pulled.  S'what my dad wants to do, at least. 

But hey, at least after this week, I might be able to sleep at night!  :D  What with one of my best friends dying, intense drama among two close friends, me falling insanely behind in some classes, I've been averaging around two, maybe three hours of sleep a night since late September.  And once this tooth bullshit started up, the two/three hours dropped to either no sleep at all, or three hours, but in 30 minute intervals because it'd keep waking me up.  Hence the vicodin.  Haha.

So hopefully, once all this dental stuff is taken care of, I'll be able to get some sleep without the aid of drugs.  <3

But shit, man.  This stuff only cost me $0.52 a pill.  wtf?

I got Vicodin once back when I was 13 after I had surgery on my finger. Never took any of the pills, but damn did I ever wish I knew the resale value

I went to a dentistry office at the University of Minnesota and since I was seeing student dentists for my work (well, they were grad students and supervised by a licensed dentist/professor), it was all super cheap. I think I ended up getting my root canal done for about $500? It was also completely painless. It just took forever because the professor has to okay their work as they go and so they have to wait for the professor to show up again since there are many students and not enough professors.

Which reminds me, I also still need my wisdom teeth out. All four are impacted and will have to be cut out. But that can wait until I have insurance at least.

it's shit like this that makes me want to get into 40k.  so i want to buy a battleforce before the year ends, since i have like $15 worth of coupons at the store the links video is apart of.  i mean, having a starter army to work on, and paint, would be fun to put together, and with the paint id buy, i could also use for terrain.  i mean, i mainly enjoyed putting together the assault on black reach, so yeah, assembling a battleforce would be awesome.

i don't want orks (even though i love them), eldar, dark eldar, or space marines. 

so i have to decide between

necrons
tau
chaos space marines (slaanesh or nurgle)
tyranids

thinking maby not tyranids because the reason i don't want orks is because they are swarmey and boyz die quickly, i assume nids are the same.   necrons are high on my list because they are fucking awesome (like orks), and durable as shit (from what i hear), but i guess they suck or something in game.  i don't know.  then chaos marines, haven't heard too much, but i would assume they are as good as space marines only different.  so yeah...i need to make my mind up before those coupons expire (pretty sure they expire start of 2010, so i got time to think)

So I got my reminder call from the hospital about my surgery tomorrow and I was just sort of half listening because it was still really early in the morning but then I heard, "And then you'll be able to go home by 1pm." So I had to stop and ask them to repeat that because I wasn't sure I heard it right and yeah, I'll be back home right after lunch. Super awesome.

And then I go and check the status on my 360 repairs to see how that's going and it looks like they listened to my angry note that I left with my system saying that they should just give me a new one because they're already sending me a 360 back and the serial numbers aren't even close. So that'll show up on Monday or Tuesday. Super hot.

Do you understand how excited I am that I can bring certain things back into my diet? I'm not even supposed to eat mac'n'cheese right now and that used to be one of my standbys for lunch when I couldn't think of anything else. I won't be going out and buying a KFC Double Down or going to Japan for the Windows 7 Burger any time soon (if ever) but just being able to eat the types of food I want to eat is a huge weight off my back.

Ooh, another feature I like: the ability to turn off auto-orientation.  I can't even begin to describe how much I've raged over the iPhone's nasty tendency to just go into landscape mode when I'm trying to read something or reply to a text message (or to go into cover flow when I try to change tracks in iPod mode).  Ugh.

My surgery was a total success. I'm on percocet while I heal so there's little pain. I'm only taking one at a time instead of two though since two makes me really dizzy. I can't lift over 10 pounds for the next month and I can't let my cat sleep in my bed for a while for fear of him trying to lay on my stomach, which would cause extreme pain but it's nothing I can't work through.

The worst parts are how the CO2 they use to inflate you a bit during surgery ends up trapped in your right shoulder and it hurts like a bitch, and how nasty the bruises look. I've got 4 1-2 inch scars on my stomach but they're all crazy purple colored around them. It looks way worse than it feels but it still hurts a bit. Just gotta take it sloooooooow.

Well, I'm not supposed to lift over 10 pounds for the next month but I should be pain-free in the next couple of days. I've seen people say they feel fine after 3 days, some go up to one week. I'd guess I'll be fine on Tuesday. Right now it can be sort of hard for me to sleep and get up because I'm not used to laying only on my back. I'm much more used to laying on my sides and ending up on my stomach. And pulling myself up and out of bed feels like a stretch since the area around my incisions is still pretty tender.

I'm probably going to try eating something a bit greasier today to see how that goes. Pizza or something I guess. My doctor said I didn't need any special diet so I should probably just eat whatever but keep it in smaller amounts.

Yeah it was pretty scary right up until they gave me the relaxant. Then I couldn't fight no matter what I did anyway.

For the record, having a can of Coke and 3 slices of thin crust ham pizza is like heaven after having gone without it for so long. No weird side effects either. No nausea, no vomiting, no diarrhea like so many people seem to end up with. So near as I can tell, once I take a few showers to clean the glue stuff off the incisions and my stomach stops being so bruised, I'll be back at 100% with no worries.

Oof. I had quite a scare today. I was out with my friends for the first time since surgery and I ate at Erbert & Gerbert's (it's a place that's like Subway only good) and I decided to try their new sub, the Quatro. It's basically a cranberry wasabi sauce on chicken, cheddar cheese and some bacon on wheat bread. It tasted pretty good! However, either my medicine didn't react well with me this time or the wasabi part of the sandwich (wasabi being somewhat spicy) totally wanted to destroy my insides because for about a half hour I thought I was going to die. I was all afraid that oh shit now I have liver stones or something?! No, your liver is thankfully not directly in the stomach region. So at least I know this was some sort of food digestion problem. It wasn't pleasant at all. Still not as bad as gallstones though.

So basically, the moral of the story is that I guess my stomach and liver have yet to adapt and thus don't know what to do with spicy foods and couldn't create the correct amount of bile to break down my food, which meant I was basically pulling my food through my digestive tract in large chunks. I know it wasn't the fat content because I already tried eating a Totino's pizza earlier in the week and those are pretty bad for you.

-hollaback gurrrr
-you know, paying like $120 for a vidya (yeah, i spent $150 on an arcade stick so i can't really complain)

may pick it up later...like later, i just spent $80 on games, dragon age and modern warfare 2 are just around the corner.

what the fuck man, ive been bitching about GAMES NOT COMING OUT for months now, then like 6 games within about two weeks of each other(give or take some days).  you know, games that i am interested in enough to want to buy.  

-dj hero
-torchlight
-borderlands
-dragon age
-modern warfare 2
-IIDX 16

im not made out of money mister video game industry, please spread the releases apart by a few weeks :<

-good free video recording majigger (free because id rather now blow a load of money on doing something i may not do for long)
-and i don't have really any experience with video so im not sure if ill need a separate editing apparatus as well or not

so yeah, been thinking of doing that assuming i can get the stuff needed to do it.  

but uhh i was thinking of running a character through normal.  then maby even playing diablo 1 as a sorceror.

If you need to know anything about video, I can probably help you, or send you to somewhere that can. I've been into AMVs for a while, and I've done a lot of research into encoding, compression and such, and I've used a host of different programs.

I haven't done much with video in a long time, but I still remember a lot.

As for a free recorder, you can try http://camstudio.org/. And if your recording, please don't just use the defaults. Whenever you record something, record it in the final encoder, if possible. Every time you have to re-compress video (say, when you edit the actual video, cut stuff out) it degrades the quality. If your planning on editing heavily, save it as really high quality (higher than you plan on releasing as output, preferably lossless, if you have enough room on your hard drive.) If you do plan on working with a lossless video as your base, I suggest Lagarith (http://lags.leetcode.net/codec.html) (It's one of the ones AMV makers use, so it should be good.)

As for video editing software that's free, I dunno. I would NOT suggest using windows movie maker. It's a pile of junk compared to most other video editors. I'd personally suggest tracking down a PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE copy of either Sony Vegas or Adobe Premier.
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: vladgd on November 03, 2009, 03:30:14 AM
i tried messing with camstudio in the past but i could never get anything to look "good" on it, even when recording something as trivial as diablo 2 in the 800x600 resolution.  tried messing with it again now that you brought it up with no real good results after fiddling around with settings and trying different games (diablo 2, torchlight, stepmania....all faired the same quality wise)

not to mention it wouldn't really let me fiddle with speaker sounds (gave me some error) and i would have to literally scream into my mic for me to be heard.

ill have to do some looking around later.

but really ill get lazy and find creative ways of using my camera to record ghetto like.

*edit*

as for compression, i think im going to give virtualdub a whack.  

*eeddr*

ok so 5 minutes of youtube, download xvid codec, compress file in virtualdub using the xvid codec, don't mess with any settings....

turned a 355mb file into a 136mb file....quality loss, trivial (ie uploaded to youtube, it's impossible to tell the difference)

ill probably find creative places to mount my camera for now, since that's part of the fun for me.  i don't need to piss with video recording settings, and i don't need a mic...because it's a fucking camera.  going to edit in a little while with my test video.
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Bobbias on November 03, 2009, 05:01:19 AM
Personally, I say h264 is better than xvid, and you could likely get even better compression with either one by spending a couple minutes toying with settings (well, a couple minutes if you know what your doing, much longer otherwise).

Virtualdub is a nice front end for compression, and I'm kinda surprised I forgot to mention it.
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: vladgd on November 03, 2009, 06:05:20 AM
guess ill be using windows media for splicing multiple videos together quickly and easily, being as it's fast, and it's like a default windows application so i don't need to download something.

i have a journey if you will recorded, a little trip to mcdonalds for some breakfast.  9 or so videos, pretty much footage to figure out how to splice multiple videos into one video.  needless to say it's as easy as booting up windows media, putting the files in there and saving it. 

it's like 460mb for 9:36 of video so ill upload er tomorrow and throw it in my video whore thread.  i think it turned out ok anyway, im not bothered by ghetto transitions since it's all of the clips into one video.  even after watching it, i think i could do fairly decent for lets playing.  i mean, when im recording i can come up with random talk and yeah, hopefully it will produce something entertaining and fun to watch.  i mean i don't know about y'all, but when im watching somebody lp, i just want a regular joe playing a vidya, talking about the vidya he is playing.  nothing outrageous, just a regular dude doing his thing.  i guess that's what most lp's are, but some people try to try too hard to be funny, and really i think that's bad.  just be you, and if you enjoy doing what you do, keep on doing it. 

so i reckon the next step for me is to figure out how to mount my camera in such a way to see my monitor good.  then uhh when i figure that out...ill be starting a "Let's Play Diablo 2: LoD - Part 1"  unlike oblivion, i actually like diablo 2, so it shouldn't fail like my oblivion attempt.  or if it does, i will at least have a video or two up.  i reckon ill have to decide which class to play...90% chance it will be a fishymancer, but hey, i might just change my mind later.


tldr- journey to mcdonalds will be uploaded later, going to try and get set up for a diablo 2 lets play. 
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Bobbias on November 03, 2009, 08:11:39 AM
WMM works for splicing videos together... And that's about it. ANY other decent editing should be done in something (anything!) else.

Also, about lps: They began on somethingawful, and (most) were fucking funny as shit. They were uploaded to places like youtube because it's easy to share videos that way. Then a billion retards on youtube discovered the (usually) hilarious SA lps, and began to make their own terrible imitations.

Also, if your using WMM, try not to save it as a compressed video there, and then re-compress it in vdub. If your going to compress it with virtualdub, export your WMM video in either really high quality, or uncompressed. The more times you compress something, the worse it looks. When you have video like D2, where there are lots of dark areas, round objects, fast moving parts along with some parts that are low motion (like the dark areas in a cave), your going to have a lot of compression artifacts on anything other than uncompressed video, because those are all hard to compress well while keeping them looking right.

Nah, I'm almost certainly not going to keep her.  But I know a lovely couple who said they'd gladly take her.  :)  They even spent at least an hour or two with us outside trying to get her out of the tree.

Yes you do.  You just don't remember it.  Trust me, if you went every night without hitting REM sleep, you wouldn't function.  I had a week where I couldn't sleep for more than 30-40 minutes in one go, and after day three or four, I was lucky to be able to understand anyone.

I had been considering making a response like that. Back in the summer of my grade 9 year, I worked at a mcdonalds... I was sleeping about 1 hour every night, or 2..

I was fucking useless, and I'm amazed I even made it to work every day. If you've ever seen someone who was so high they couldn't even remember where they were, or what they were doing 10 seconds ago, it's kinda like that.Only when your high, you're aware that your missing things. I didn't even realize I was so bad at the time.

Needless to say, I didn't last long.

History class has like 300 people, so me and a few friends sat at the back. The professor is pretty eccentric. We decided to take a shot everytime she said either "society", "values", "cultural", or mentioned the Ottoman Empire or Judaism. As a special last minute rule, we added in everytime she said "slavery"...and as luck would have it, our lecture was on colonialism and slavery.

Probably shouldn't have done that with a 40% Politics paper due on Friday.

Well, your still in high school, right? So, 50-60 people in a highschool classroom would be pretty large, but in the classrooms here (that are large enough) it doesn't feel that big. I've never been in one of those high-ass lectures or anything, but that's mostly because my program is kinda limited. As I said, when we had an uptake of 145 people (my first year) that was a record uptake. The course had never taken that many people in at one time. This year is even larger, but I don't know the numbers.

If you were to take business or one of the more popular programs, you might have a much larger class. (though still not likely anything close to 1600 people). Georgian college isn't all that big.

I do kinda feel sorry for the teachers thouh. They are still dealing with enough people that they can't just get TAs to mark everything and just do lectures and such like the profs in large universities, but they have to deal with teaching (both in lectures, and in labs), and grading (both assignments in the lectures, as well as lab reports) something like 250ish people, in some cases, depending on what courses they teach (whether they teach 2nd and 3rd year, 1st and second, all, 3, etc.)

You need what's called a Class 3 dealer's license. My stepdad has his FFL and basic dealers license, so he can buy at wholesale and sell to whoever or buy guns for his friends at cost. This license includes pistols, semi-auto rifles, shotguns, etc, pretty much everything.  The Class 3 involves an ENORMOUS amount of time, paperwork, MONEY, and approval from several state government positions.

They're rare, but there are people who have them.  If I were you, I'd look into Machine gun 'meets' or 'shoots' around your area. We have an annual one here in AZ called the Big Sandy Machine gun shoot. http://www.mgshooters.com/  We try to go every year.  AT said events, you can 'rent' other people's guns [if they let you] for x amount of money, you can shoot a few mags thru whatever is for rent.  For example, I've shot an [automatics] browning m1919, thompson, sten gun, AK47, etc.

The science is actually worse than in The Day After Tomorrow, and I would excuse that if the characters and story were any good. But they weren't. The characters were 2-dimensional and the drama was stolen from much better movies. I mean, where have you seen this before: Main character is a dad who has joint custody over his 2 kids, a girl and a boy. The girl is fine with him, but the boy doesn't like him too much, which you can tell because the boy calls him by his first name instead of "dad". Their mom is dating a plastic surgeon who is a huge tool. And these are the people we're with throughout the whole movie.

The disaster is that the earth's core is destabilized and is shifting and breaking apart because a solar flare caused an influx of neutrinos which caused the formation of a new subatomic particle which somehow heated the earth's lower layers. The more you know about neutrinos, the less sense that makes.

The worst part is that they try to spend the entire second act developing the characters, but anyone who paid to see this movie was only seeing it because of all the destruction shown in the trailers. It also only shows how flat the characters really are.

I expected the movie to be bad. I didn't expect it to be a manifestation of every disaster movie clich

Well, the new subatomic particle thing is almost plausible, if you know much about quantum physics. Of course, the neutrino thing is just absolute bullshit.

I've read about it. Your blood wouldn't boil because it's surrounded by veins which keep the pressure in check, but most of the water from your eyes, nose, and mouth would immediately boil away and the rest would freeze pretty instantly. Without anything on your ears, your entire inner ear would burst, and that would cause enough pain for someone to pass out. It's hard to tell which is better, inhaling or exhaling, but either would end with the lungs bursting if the breath was held or collapsing if the breath was let out.

And I think we can assume that the guns in Cowboy Bebop can fire in space because of a modified mechanism or something.

That said, the main reason I was criticizing the bad science in 2012 is because they made such a big deal out of it, and the exposition explaining what causes the disasters is entirely unnecessary. They were bringing fictional science into a film that isn't science fiction. A bad film that isn't science fiction.

Actually, you wouldn't freeze/boil immediately. There's nothing for you heat to transfer to, so the only way you cool off is by radiant heat, which is rather slow. That much, I know, thanks to my physics teacher (He mentioned that cooling spaceships in space is actually quite a problem).
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: annon on November 16, 2009, 03:11:52 AM
Well, yeah. The reason for the evaporation is the drop in pressure, and evaporation is a cooling process because the warmer particles leave first. With the pressure so low that water can only exist as a solid or a gas, it would become either a solid or a gas. Just because the water is frozen doesn't mean it's cold, just cold enough.

EDIT: Scratch that, turns out solid water has to be pretty damn cold in a vacuum (close to -80℃). But yeah, the way it would cool is through evaporation, which would essentially be convection.

And I think we can assume that the guns in Cowboy Bebop can fire in space because of a modified mechanism or something.

So the shell casings would have to have air inside them so they could support the fire needed for bullet propulsion?

Also the whole freezing/burning things seems relative to where in space you are, what about being in just a vacuum with room temperature?

Oh yeah, and oh god that comic.

Temperature doesn't act the same way in a vacuum. A vacuum can't really be "room temperature" because when we measure room temperature, we're measuring the temperature of some form of matter.

I'm not supporting a console-ported PC game delivered by a company that has turned its back on the PC Gaming community, and if you value a gaming community such as ours, neither should you.

It offers nothing of value to No Heroes. This is a console game, and we are a PC gaming community. If you want to talk about that game, I'm sure there are plenty of venues out there to do so.

IW turned its back on the PC gaming community. As such, No Heroes is turning its back on them. Will it make a difference? Probably not....but as we are the 5th largest Steam group (out of 800k+ groups), and we get approached on a weekly basis for commercial endorsements/promotions, you can bet your ass I will use what little leverage I have to tell them to shove it up their ass.

MW2 is now considered persona non grata to No Heroes. If any of you guys who were foolish enough to buy a console game to play on your PC's want to have your group hugs and talk about how the rest of the PC world just doesn't get it, take it somewhere else.

Nintendo brainwashing.

Also I became a man yesterday, I downloaded an NES emulator and played Contra for the first time. Man, I wish my NES didn't explode on me in my youth.

God DAMN, that had to hurt.

Edit:  I just got a call from some guy looking for a girl named Colleen so she can pay him $240+ for tuning her piano.

My name IS Colleen.  And I have a piano which is in dire need of tuning.  But I've never had the money to get it tuned.  So I never would have commissioned this guy's services.

This'll be an interesting phone call to make.

i ain't got jury duty this/next wednesday. 

and that means at the very minimum, i don't have jury duty for 12-24 months. 

BALLIN'!

as for contra.  after beating it for the first time, im going to say it's really not that bad.  i mean, there are many many many nes games which are harder.  i mean, the fault with contra is that...well, it's made well.  there really aren't any cheap deaths when you get the hang of the game, and the controls are very good so you aren't fighting them like say you are in a game like castlevania or ninja gaiden. 

even games with good controls like smb3 are harder in my opinion.  that said, contra is my favorite nes game.  it's something you can always pop in and play for a while, and since the game is so short, getting a game over isn't really that bad.

Oh wow, I just downloaded Contra, Castelvania, Ninja Gaiden 2, and a couple Megaman games, and I must say I was shocked after I played Contra and I tried Castelvania. Also I can't even see how someone could complain about the sliding in Megaman and not even mention how slippery every god damned surface of everything in SMB3 is. Like, half my deaths are from sliding into things.

-dawn of war II -$40.00
-STALKER- $20.00
-titan quest and the expansion- $30.00 for both
-red faction guerrilla- $40.00

and a few other games i would try because they are in the pack(full spectrum warrior, red faction 2, the first dawn of war, saints row 2)

the pack costs like $50.00...the fuck...i almost bought DoW II alone for that a few months back.  

ill think about it and ill probably be $50.00 poorer tomorrow...

so like i haven't played very far in riddick, but dude, prison shiving people is badass.  like stabbing some dude several times in the chest then going for his eyes, yeah, i am enjoying this.

riddick has a checkpoint save system

that coupled with it's high emphasis on stealth and you not being able to take a hit = FRUSTRATION.  so i deleted it and i am installing STALKER.  

if i read that it has a checkpoint save system before it finishes downloading, i will cancel it asap.  

*edit*

guess i won't be playing STALKER.

xr_3da.exe gives me some error or some shit, and i can't seem to find a solution on the steam forums.

Nah, you can F6 like a mofo all day (just remember to create two saves so you don't screw yourself over by getting stuck or using too many supplies). STALKER has a general use for stealth, but it's more or less knowing what cover is safe and watching out for grenades tossed (the radar is amazingly helpful here).

Post by: vladgd on December 02, 2009, 05:45:16 AM
im fine with stealth, don't get me wrong.  but when stealth is involved, checkpoints best not be.  

i mean, im one of those "how the fuck can you even play fallout 3 without 100 sneak" types.

anywho, not playing stalker until...well somebody tells me how to fix this problem.

i mean the game literally won't show up as an application, and i have to open the task manager to shut down the xr_3da.exe if i even want to see the STALKER logo apon clicking the desktop icon.  

only nothing happens afterwards and i have to use good ole task manager to close it out again.  tried compatibility settings with both icon and steam, run as admin, anything i can think of.

so i downloaded full spectrum warrior, and it ran like shit.  the fix for that, unplug my internet, worked fine when i did that.

i hope the next game i download from that pack runs fine, because thus far, those have been the only games ive had problems with on steam.

that said, i bought final fantasy 7...on the playstation store to play on my psp...

I still hate the XMB though. What a terrible system interface.

Maybe I'm just used to it but I find it to be a hell of a lot better than the 360's interface.  At the very least, XMB runs waaaay smoother than both the old 360 Dashboard and NXE.

My only real complaint about XMB is the overly large options menu, but just about all of them are one-shot settings so I can tolerate that.
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Eggman on December 03, 2009, 09:51:28 PM
It just has too many options and things that could be combined. NXE is really bad too just because of how much wasted space it ends up with even though it doesn't even give you that much information. The old blades interface worked a lot better. The PSP version of XMB works better because it has less options to it. Maybe I'll like the PS3 version when I put a theme or something on it that isn't just the default background.

Like, it's actually surprising to me, but I like the Wii interface the most. All the system stuff is off where it should be, access SD card from the main screen, rearrange all of my downloaded stuff to be right there on the main page. I like things to be front and center.
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Spectere on December 03, 2009, 10:49:57 PM
Yeah, I hear you.  Really, aside from the options screen I don't have much of a problem with it.  Now that I think about it, I kind of shudder to think of what the games menu will look like if a PS3 user were to go on a PSN shopping spree.  I know from experience that it can get a little annoying with a PSP and an 8GB memory stick (because, honestly, screw UMD and not having any battery life on my gen 1 PSP; the first thing I do is rip those suckers), I'd hate to think about what you can do with a 160-250GB hard drive.

The Wii interface is fine, but it does have one extremely major flaw: the inability to use GameCube controllers to traverse the menu.  Considering I use it more as a GameCube than a Wii, the lack of that feature is insanely annoying.  It might have been resolved in one of Nintendo's futile attempts to defeat softmodding, who knows...I hardly use the thing anymore. :s

It's really odd that it doesn't let you use a GC controller because it does let you use a classic controller to navigate if you want. I guess it does just sort of boot into GC mode to play GC stuff so they didn't want to take the time to program that in. Who knows really.

But then there's the Wii games that support the GC controller. It doesn't seem like they have a real reason to require the Wiimote for the screen other than to require that people have a Wiimote to go with their Wii.

Yeah, that's probably it. Honestly, it IS quite a bit faster to navigate just using a pointer and it really is more convenient since I enjoy being able to pick my remote and just turn it all on wirelessly because my system's sort of off in a corner that's awkward to get to (though it's the only place it could be due to space constraints). I rarely ever touch the actual power button on the system itself and really only go over there to take discs out and put a new one in.

Although I can still see how it'd be nice to be able to use the GC controller when you just want to use a GC controller right away anyway. Either way, it's still my favorite system menu.

Actually, the 360 wins worst main menu just due to me paying a yearly amount for Gold and still having ads stuffed in my face. Nice to know my money's getting me something.

lawl. I liked my Java class, but still though Java sucked. Only thing I would ever use it for would be some stupidly simple networking crap where the networking itself was the most difficult part of the program, and speed was not an issue.

Everyone hates Java. It's something nearly every CS major here agrees on. I remember I was in the CS lab yesterday finishing up some homework and I heard this exchange:

"Well, <name>'s merge sort algorithm works in .03, and I'm trying to get mine down to .02"
"There's a solution to that: Don't use Java."
(Cue laughter from everyone in earshot)

EDIT: Speaking of CS, I spent the last hour or so working on a resubmission of an old assignment (prof is allowing us to resubmit an old assignment as the last project). I made the mistake of not testing all of my methods when I first wrote it, and it was completely broken because of it. The project was to make a class where you could add and remove things from an array, and the array always stayed in sorted order. It was also made to change in size when something was added or removed, and to tell if a certain object was in the array via binary search.

My add method was supposed to work by finding the index where an object should go and placing it there, moving everything else back by 1. Problem was that it just wouldn't work. After a half hour of debugging, I realized something: We learned how to use sorting algorithms last week. So I made the add method add the object to the end of the array, then sort. Everything worked after that.

Post by: Bobbias on December 05, 2009, 10:16:49 AM
Lol, yeah. It's kinda redundant to recreate methods that already work (and likely work faster), but understanding linked lists and other data sets is really important :/

I like the language of Java, more or less. I find it really easy to program in, and the documentation is really good, for the most part. My only problem is the performance issue.

Of course, if teachers really want to use a language that is processed by a JIT compiler like Java, but runs better, why not use one of the .net languages? Sure, it costs a lot to get the whole visual studio... But they could easily install VS express for free, lol. The syntax is fairly similar to java, combined with a little bit more C++ style stuff, there's a ton of documentation (MSDN is really helpful... REALLY helpful), many f the data types they use are similar or identical to data types used in windows itself, so when you work with certain types of functions, they are very close to what you would do in C++ or anything else when you program for windows, you've got a lot more control over your programs than in Java, but you can also make things damn easy. And best of all, you don't need to use 200,000 lines of code just to make sure all the buttons and items on your form are in exactly the place you want them. Who the fuck designed the API for that in Java (can't remember the specific toolkit name).

Seriously, in highschool, I spent almost an entire class trying to get the program I had finished to look like the teacher's one (that was one of the grading requirements, because we had to learn how to use that code to properly lay out our program). When over half your program consists of code to position everything exactly, there's something wrong with the API. (And I'm not joking about the "over half the program" part.)

so im like using an FAQ for ff7 so i don't miss any of the "LOL YOU MISSED THIS CAN'T GET IT AGAIN TILL YOU START A NEW FILE" items in the game.  it's quite nice on the psp so i don't need to get up or anything and i can just chill by my pc.

also nice is a FAQ which tells you when would be a good time to steal some items.  i mean, stealing is a cool thing, it's just you can't really know some stuff until you try stealing from everything, and sometimes stealing a single item takes a lot of time, so using a FAQ for this reason is also really nice.

that and i beat the game already so why not try to get everything this time around.

I forget the exact name, but there are dudes in the Shin-Ra building (something like SOLDIER No. 3 or some shit like that) that have Hardedges you can steel. Those things are amazing for Cloud to have that early in the game, since you normally can't buy them until Junon.

That, and if you grind enough to level up your characters/materia in the Shin-Ra building (like I did, whoo-hoo Bio2 lol rhyme), the game is ludicrously easy also until about the Junon region.
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Eggman on December 07, 2009, 07:53:16 AM
The whole game is ridiculously easy. I can't remember if it's only the PC version or not, but due to the scrolling numbers for your HP, using Haste + Regen means you regain health faster than it can be dealt to you. So basically you can never die ever unless it's instant death or you get knocked out of the fight like from what the Weapons can do.

the game isn't hard, but, that doesn't prevent me from forgetting ONE TIME ONLY items.  

and i didn't know about the hardedge thing, so im glad i picked one up.  it's a stupidly good upgrade for the point in the game you get it.

also i stole three carbon bangles from the ball robot things, those are also really good.

Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Eggman on December 07, 2009, 02:13:25 PM
Beta's not even that great really. It uses too much MP for the first time you see the Zolom and that stupid thing gives almost no experience.

I always stole from every enemy in the olden days. FF6, FF7, FF8 not so much unless I had Mug on someone just because you did damage at the same time and you had to to get more of certain items sometimes, and then FF9 gave every boss multiple awesome weapons and armor pieces to steal and I was in heaven.

The easiest thing to miss in all of FF7 is definitely the W-Item materia.

Very true but you do have to admit it makes several bosses cake walk on the first disk.

Speaking of the first disk the best place to train after you get the buggy (if you are going for all enemy skills) is the tunnel that connects to the elevator to the Underwater Reactor.  Press the siren to let it go off and just fight for a while you get 900-2100 exp and 90-210 ap.  With everyone having double ap growth you can master materia rather quickly.  Hell before I got to the Temple of the Cetra I had all the obtainable magic materia mastered and had about 1/2 of the obtainable summons mastered at that point and time.

Man, I'm always underleveled when I play FF games. Probably because I don't stick around and grind anywhere, and I ignore those "easy exp" places unless I need to go back and level up some, lol.

But it can make some boss fights a lot more interested (and/or a lot more annoying).
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Eggman on December 07, 2009, 09:36:05 PM
I love Lost Odyssey because you technically can't overlevel for the main game. The game caps you at a certain level in each area as you go, but you can still learn skills through battles so instead of just overpowering bosses, you can just give yourself more options for strategies and combinations of skills. Then the optional stuff lets you level to 99 if you want. I should really finish everything in that game. It's my favorite RPG on 360. If you called the game Final Fantasy, it would pretty much fit right in.

Also I think under-leveling is a bigger problem then over leveling anyways, at least that's how it was with Digital Devil Saga 2.

Hahaha the fucking Meganada. The ends of Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2 get ridiculous. I had to grind in 2 until I had Null Element and some of the other Null stuff in order to even win. SMT games are just really goddamn hard.

The video said it was yet to be released, so maybe you have a beta of it or something?

Also yeah, as soon as I got that angel tree I went for it and screwed up Argilla's stuff. That game was surprisingly hard, considering I had a reusable item that could revive people back to full health and I was still constantly loosing.

it's strange...i actually...did stuff today.

went to the next town over to get stuff done, christmas stuff, generic stuff, and food stuff.

had my first dominos pizza in about a year, stuff is good.

did a lot of SNOW DRIVING which i enjoy, specially since this is the first "real" snow of the season for us.  

to end it off, i tried some new super mario bros wii with a total of 3 people, made it to world 3.  it was a good time, but i can definitely see myself enjoying it more alone.  but i mean, it's still dumb fun when playing with other people, and the waggle isn't that bad.  my only gripe with the waggle is using waggle to pick stuff up, other than that it's ok.  

*final fantasy 7 jargon*

so i got the enemy skill beta at level 18 from the midgar zolom(the snake guy in the swamp that people normally catch a chocobo to run and avoid).

party was level 18 (took about 10 minutes of grinding, not too bad)

everybody in the back row, person with enemy skill also must be in sadness, and his armor with fire linked to elemental

poison zolom asap, then throw two gravity balls at him (i uhh, only had two)

don't attack with the enemy skill materia holder spam bio 1 with the others when heals aren't needed

when he reaches around 1000-1500 hp range he should use beta, this happens to me after he knocks one of my party members out of battle

make sure your enemy skill holder has full hp when he does this and make sure he has a cure coming his way casted by him, since the other party member will die from the attack

i tried this without doing sadness, but after he casts beta, he attacks you every time, so when i have 14 hp left, and he hits for like 200 something, i die.  but uhh, leveling an additional time and making use of sadness kept cloud alive.  basically keep healed up until he dies from poison, but i finished him off with a blade beam after getting bored of waiting.

essentially i have an area of effect fire attack which does over 1100 fire damage, at a point in the game where magic does around 100 damage.  pretty snazzy.

Post by: OmegaOmni on December 09, 2009, 10:45:57 AM
Yep.  When you get Cait Sith (honestly who uses him *snort) go back over to the first area via Costa del Sol and the buggy and fight an enemy that is a bi-pedbirld looking dude manipulate him and learn to learn white wind...also you should be getting a 2nd Enemy Skill materia soon as well...also on the shore area near Costa del Sol there is an enemy called beach plug that when manipulated knows Big Guard...very very very useful.  If you are trying to master materia early I strongly suggest you just have every one keep double growth materia weapons because it helps quite a bit.

Hell before I fought the boss at Junon I had everyone that I could get at that time with their level 3 limit breaks...basicly I killed that boss with one character (Cloud with Meterian).

No. Physics states that when 2 things have a different temperature, they will try to equalize, meaning heat will travel from the hot object to the cold one. However, in real life, the contact between those 2 things is not perfect. Even if something seems flat, there are small bumps and holes in them, and those create air pockets. Which means that the parts where the 2 objects touch will conduct heat, but those air pockets won't conduct heat as well. But, if you fill those holes with thermal paste, the heat will conduct through the thermal paste much easier than it would through air, making the connection between the 2 objects better, and allowing more heat to escape the processor into the heat sink.

The thermal paste begins working the moment there is any heat difference between the heat sink and the processor.

I did a quick google search and saw nothing talking about that, and from my knowledge of what thermal grease does, I'd say that it doesn't make sense anyway. There is a delay where the grease (especially if it's Arctic Silver) needs to fill in all the cracks and such (mentioned on their website http://www.arcticsilver.com/as5.htm)

Quote
During the CPU's initial use, the compound thins out to enhance the filling of the microscopic valleys and ensure the best physical contact between the heatsink and the CPU core. Then the compound thickens slightly over the next 50 to 200 hours of use to its final consistency designed for long-term stability.

Also I watched the Spike TV awards, which was painful and I had to do it via livestream because god knows I'm not going to support them financially, and surprisingly Uncharted won.

Had a look at the stats at the bottom of the main page. On average there are close to 400 posts per registered user. Holy shit.

even for a small community, that's still quite a bit..

and i think the majority of us are definitely quality over quantity. except boobies, which is both.

y'know, it looks like ass doesn't it?

anywho, it wasn't my idea, i brought my water/nerds drink to work and had people try it, they liked it.  then the manager suggested monster with nerds, and then we went on joking on how drinking it would give you diabeetus due to the mass amount of sugar in that thing.

so yeah, that's where the idea came from.  as to where i got the nerds/water thing, i couldn't tell you more than i got curious one day and i happened to have a box of rainbow nerds and a bottle of water.

i mean, the drink looks disgusting(many different colors being dissolved in liquid), i agree with that, and the friends i showed agreed with it.  but i mean, if you enjoy the taste of nerds candy, it tastes EXACTLY like that, only in drink form.  not even a weird diluted because they were dissolved in water taste, it's just the same as if you poured a bunch in your mouth and chewed em up...only a liquid.

but the monster thing...ehh...im going to have to take another sip, but it's not for the feint of heart i can say that.

*edit*

ok, i tried more of this bastard mixture.  i have a few words to say.

no sir, i didn't like it.

[insert image of that horse from ren and stimpy here]

*edittddddddddddddd889

drank about 3/4 of this mixture, this shit is fucking cancer, do not mix monster and a box of nerds

I'm going to try and play NeoTokyo more, because the player base has really seemed to die and it's a damn good game.

I suppose the day and age of heavy team based tactical shooters is dead and gone. Now everyone wants a run and gun rambo experience.

I'd play it more, but the learning curve kind of killed it for me. I don't enjoy dying to people I don't even know are there, then having to wait 5 minutes because the rounds always go forever. The mod is ridiculously awesome, it's true, and since the update there's been a lot of changes for the better, but between most people being exponentially better at the game than me (I still cannot figure out how to use most weapons to any effect, particularly the goddamn starters for most classes, and they removed the M41L iirc ;_;), it's pretty easy to get discouraged.

On another note, I'm getting back into Borderlands, playing a pistol Hunter, it kicks some major ass, I managed to find a S&S Thanatos, and have a Gunslinger class mod with ~+80% Fire rate and accuracy, so I'm just cruising around removing peoples heads with impunity.

They changed a lot recently, I think they shortened the gap between the starting weapons and the higher XP ones (minus that fucking AWP). The game really is like 70% learning the maps, and then the rest is communication, two things which won't work well on a public server. If you want to get better, find an empty server (there's a ton of them...) and learn the map layouts and maybe shoot a wall at varying distances to see how the gun recoil and muzzle climb acts.

i went to the walmart to buy season 2 of dat trek...and they only had season 3.

so i bought season 1 of stargate atlantis...it was only $15.00...

this is not good, as if i need another thing to start impulse buying.  i will learn this moderation, after i get all 3 seasons of my trek.  buying stargate atlantis/sg1 if not available...

excuse the ellipses, i try to type out how i generally talk in person.  which is a bit odd, but i am an odd person, as y'all know.

*edit*

finished the entirety of star trek season 1.  checked my towns walmart (i was in a different town for the walmart above) and...6 season 3's, no season 1 or two.  the fuck man, i need my season 2.

in the meantime, stargate atlantis season 1.  too fucking bad i can't find season two or whatever, same with sg1, the earliest season of sg1 they have is like 4.

i was thinking this.  how many of you actually use your address bar regularly?  i rarely use mine at all due to my 100+ bookmarks.

and when i want something, i type it into my wikipedia search bar, scroll to the bottom and there's generally a link i am looking for.  

example, say i need help on dragon age.  type dragon age in my wikipedia search bar, scroll to the bottom...blamo this link (http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Age_Wiki) appears.

ironically, a site i am on ALL THE FUCKING TIME i don't have bookmarked, this is youtube.

seriously like the saved tabs thing means i never close certain tabs, ever.  ill always have atleast 3-4 tabs up at all times.  4chan, youtube, random thing i want up, next random thing i want up.  like right now, 4chan, youtube, lets play archive, gamefaqs ff7 faq, speed demos archive, post reply on spectere.net.  

also 666th post suckaaaaaaaaaaaa (same on another forum i visit as well)

I've got an insane number of bookmarks that I never even look at. I use the address bar all the time. With chrome, it's even easier, because any site that supports opensearch, i can type part of the site name, then tab, type what I want, and hit enter.

Example, wikipedia. I type wik[tab]Queen, and I'm on the wikipedia page for Queen.

But yeah, I use my address bar all the time.

Audacity really isn't a good program for making DJ mixes :/ It's much more tailored towards multitrack recording than anything else.

If you can get a copy, try Ableton Live (powerful program, but confusing to learn), or Virtual DJ (I've used it, and it's not great), Mixmeister (better), or Traktor Pro (best, IMO). I much prefer Traktor over the others.

I use it pretty frequently.  For my most frequented sites though, I use the bookmarks toolbar on Firefox, but in terms of using the address bar, I've got several bookmarks saved with a short keyword.  For example, if I want to get to my twitter account, I just type in "tw" and quicker than a virgin boy on Prom night, I'm there.  Tis lovely.  <3

I've looked at Traktor before, I just haven't gotten around to "acquiring" it yet. Maybe I'll do that soon. Audacity really does suck for it, but it gets the job done. Lol as long as I don't have to use more than one tempo change or the song sounds all screwy.

And yeah, Winnipeg does suck. Not going to have time to be DJing with tables until summer anyway stupid school :(

i honestly don't know what to level.  i guess i have a friend alliance on some pvp server...but i would have to level a new character...

my options are

level the troll shaman from 70-80
level the draenei paladin from 72-80
level the human mage from 6-80

HMMM

also i am too lazy at the moment but at least it's on my mind, i want to start drawing.  the concept of taking an idea from your mind and making it visible is pretty much the soul reason i want to get decent at drawing. 

like this, this is fucking awesome

but i can only really do stuff like this, and the outcome is literally random from when i start making lines on the paper.

problem is i can't sit still long enough to do what you need to do to get good.  DRAW DRAW DRAW DRAW DRAW DRAW DRAW DRAW DRAW DRAW, ect.  maby one of these days ill have the drive.

if it was my decision:

shaman are awesome, if I didn't hate leveling so much I'd have one (good in pve, but in pvp they still have problems, though)

I regret leveling a paladin, should've made a warrior (again; good in pve, prot in healing gear and prot in dps gear are the best pvp specs what the hell)

mages suck

im just pissing around at the moment.  but i mean if i did want to play on a different server, i would have to kind of want to play for at least a month or so.

y'see in terms of classes i want to level up, i got the following.  pretty much one class.  hunter, and i want to wait for cataclysm so i can make an undead hunter.  i could also level a priest...but i want my worgen to be a priest.  mage/lock are not interesting to me, but i will probably make a goblin warlock, leaving mage for whatever. 

that said, if i want to play my shaman, i need to server transfer or i just won't play it.  so i mean, if i had the interest (i kind of do, i kind of don't) i would be spending $25 on the transfer and $15 on the month of payed time.  which y'know, ive done it before, no big deal...but uhh star trek online, mass effect 2.  those games come out fairly soon, so yeah, don't want to server transfer right now.

funny thing is that i probably won't even play much in my 7 days of free time, getting the mage to level 7 and i kind of want to do something else, so here's this fairly long post that i could have made short but decided not to.

I actually was eligible for a zhevra last year around this time, but my hunter didn't have journeyman riding (and it was still min. lv.60 and 400g at the time, only the latter of which I actually had) so you would have gotten the last laugh anyway.

I don't know if anyone else uses Trillian, but I may as well ask:

Is there a way, and if so, how can I have new chat windows not be displayed when I'm set to away, until I come back? You can do it with standard AIM, but I can't stand AIM at all, and have used Trillian for a long time now. I won't stop using it because of not being able to do it, but if there's a way, that'd be lovely.

Just saw the GI Joe movie. Holy FUCK did it suck. The CGI was surprisingly good and the chicks would always show cleavage despite being in combat situations, but everything else was just plain bad. The fight scenes sucked, the plot was the most ADD shit I've ever seen in a movie (there was like 5 different flash back scenes at random) and everything was amazingly corny.

i uhh got the trial to netflix and i started watching some NOT STAR TREK BECAUSE THEY DONT HAVE ANY ON THE INSTANT STREAM SAVE FOR SEASON ONE OF THE TOS WHICH I BOUGHT SEVERAL WEEKS AGO AND WATCHED ALREADY.

so im watching red dwarf (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Dwarf).

and im finding random other sci fi stuff to hopefully entertain me after i finish that.  or even other stuff like survivorman, no reservations, random documentaries, hell even random movies.  i mean im not a movie guy, but there are several movies i wouldn't mind seeing that people would be damn surprised i haven't seen.  die hard, waterwold, mad max (not on instant stream, i may go with the dvd on that one).

women drivers (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8432887.stm)

I suppose that's not a terrible idea. If you get even one yutz that parks right on one of the lines, it usually muffs up the entire row. The parking lot for the local Whole Foods is a fantastic example of this. For some reason, the general demographic of that store either insists on double parking their cars, fucking it up for everyone ('cause it's a VERY tiny lot), or they simply seem to have a complete lack of visual perception. It's often quite an adventure parking in there.

I mean really, whether or not the move is aimed at women, wider spaces (though a meter seems to be a bit excessive) and more lighting is by no means a terrible idea. I rarely have any issues, seeing as I drive a little '92 Honda Civic, but wider spaces would in fact make it a bit less likely that you'll get people on both sides of you raping the lines, thus making life a pain in the ass.

But really now. Pink and purple? c'mon.

yeah ill admit i enjoy some things outside of the reality of science fiction from time to time, like action movies in general, or non jet li martial arts movies like ong-bak or enter the dragon.

anywho i was going to avoid posting since ive basically been "netflix watch, post about it, netflix watch, make another post" but god damn i enjoy movies which just don't care and deliver the fucking awesome.  i just had to share my positive opinion.

So I'm playing EVE again.  I knew I couldn't keep away from this damn game for too long.  My friend and I started up a corporation with the money that I made with my first two characters.

Also: THE NEW IN-GAME BROWSER IS FUCKING SWEET.  I'm posting from fucking EVE right now, no joke.  After doing a bit of research, I found out that the browser is based on Chromium, which is based on WebKit.  It can pass Acid3 FFS.

Anyway, I decided to be a douche and name my character "Jim McSpacedude" because none of the other names that I tried worked.  I still can't believe I did that, but at the same time I'm not entirely unhappy with it. :)

But yeah, if any of you happen to want to try EVE, the corporation that my friend and I founded is called "Black Steel Industries."  If you have any intention of getting into mining and production and want to chillax with teh Spekturr (and Prouncer...anyone remember him?), shoot me EVE Mail or a PM.

So yeah, Spectere, is there a way you can make the forum automatically resize my (linked) avatar instead of saying REJECTED every time I try to use it? :(

Oops.  Forgot to reenable that setting when I switched servers.  Try it again.

I'd certainly like to try EVE, and I love the idea of a built in browser (does it have built in MSN? if so, it could become my new desktop background :P) but I'm not sure if I really want to sink any money into that.

It doesn't have MSN built-in, but you could always use Meebo (http://www.meebo.com/). :)  Its JavaScript engine is amazingly fast (it runs WoW Armory better than Firefox) so it should be able to handle it like a champ.

but I'm not sure if I really want to sink any money into that.

If you're good at making in-game money in EVE you can play for free.  CCP sells "Pilot's License Extensions" for real-world currency -- time cards, essentially.  Unlike other MMO creators, however, EVE allows you to sell those items in-game.  It's kind of a neat system.  It allows people who want to purchase in-game currency to do so while also allowing people who don't want to pay monthly to buy play time with in-game currency.  It's particularly brilliant because if there wasn't a demand for the latter nobody would do the former.  The system is completely player-driven, very much in the spirit of the game.

Well, that helped because it's not complaining at me anymore, but I think it's trying to save its own copy of the image instead of directly linking to it now :x

edit: And this is the only image of the three that actually displays for some reason D:

Yeah, that's how it has to work.  It downloads the image to the server, resizes it, and links it.  It's nice because it does the grunt work for the users, but it's mean because it breaks rotators.

I'll have to set your avatar manually for it to work.  PM me with the link and I'll do it when I feel like it. <3

It's weird, because this was the exact same file I was using for my old random avatar, which didn't have any issues here.

One problem: you're going to have to resize them manually.  Since administratively setting your avatar would bypass the automatic resizing you're going to have to bump down the size (150x150 or less, pl0x).  Do dat and I'll sets it. :>

It doesn't have MSN built-in, but you could always use Meebo (http://www.meebo.com/). :)  Its JavaScript engine is amazingly fast (it runs WoW Armory better than Firefox) so it should be able to handle it like a champ.

If you're good at making in-game money in EVE you can play for free.  CCP sells "Pilot's License Extensions" for real-world currency -- time cards, essentially.  Unlike other MMO creators, however, EVE allows you to sell those items in-game.  It's kind of a neat system.  It allows people who want to purchase in-game currency to do so while also allowing people who don't want to pay monthly to buy play time with in-game currency.  It's particularly brilliant because if there wasn't a demand for the latter nobody would do the former.  The system is completely player-driven, very much in the spirit of the game.

Interesting. How much work does it take to make enough money ingame to afford those things, lol. I'd rather not have to do that if it costs so much ingame money that I basically spend all my time making money to afford another extension, lol. I have learned a bit about EVE, and everything I've heard so far is that basically, it's for those hardcore of hardcore gamers who basically do nothing but play the game religiously, or those players who don't mind popping ingame, doing something for 5 minutes, and then doing a whole "set and forget" type thing.

Well, I signed up for the 14 day trial, and am downloading the game right now.

I think tomorrow I'll make a tremendously TL;DR wall of text for all the shit that's been going on with me, and why my presence has been so hit-or-miss for so long. Look forward to it. :D

Yeah, I've noticed your lack of presence lately.

Well, since I've got $50 in my bank account and a job that pays decent money, maybe I could afford to play EVE without trying to make enough for a PLEX ingame (since I just broke 1 mill now, lol. However I did lose one ship and have to outfit another to be able to defend myself, rather than mine... Maybe I'll get a mining frigate too, and keep this one for missions or something. Bah, so many options in this game.)

Yes, there is actually quite a lot that goes through my mind when I play with someone I've played a decent amount. Because I begin to understand which choise they make most often, and try to weigh my instinctive chose against theirs and the possibility that the may chose a different onethan I expected...

I know what you mean.  When Star Fox Assault came out, I bought it there, opened it up, and there was a SF Adventures disc in it.  Also, this one time I was playing the demo they have set up, and after like 10 minutes the cashier told me to "buy the game or leave."

There's another video game store near me, Play'n'Trade (it's a franchise) that sells retro games along with new ones, has six TVs with different consoles hooked up, and doesn't have shitty customer service.  It's pretty great.  Also, they have copies of Murasama.

open beta client downloads are ready for star trek online.  tried the standard sto downloader, it was ass slow, now waiting in line to try the fileplanet download.  

i would totally have got this off from steam, but i want my borg bridge officer...only available from an amazon preorder.  i mean, that's ok since i like amazon, but i would really have prefered to download the game from steam.  ohh well, i guess i get a physical copy of the game at least.

*edit*

21% download complete...it's 7am and i started about 9pm...

im going to be pissed if/when the file is interrupted and i have to start all over again.

*edit*

yep, last fucking time i use that trash known as fileplanet.  over 15 solid hours of downloading WASTED, guess im using the torrent now.  

hopefully the download will finish before the beta ends on the TWENTY FUCKING SIXTH.

i fucking wish they let you download the beta client over a day before it started, because at the rate i am getting it now my ETA is 5 days.

Just threw my Power Mac G4 next to me.  I'm now going to be surrounded by three monitors at all times.

Oh, speaking of Mac OS...I found that my Mac is actually amazingly usable when I turn Spotlight the hell off.  As it turns out, indexing services don't mystically go faster just because you have a Mac like some people seem to think.  Now the thing runs so smoothly it's a pleasure to use.  It's going to be perfect for when I have to look things up in the midst of a WoW binge.

I'm also starting to get disillusioned with Firefox.  Seriously, the only friggin' reason I use it is because of AdBlock Plus and some of the addons.  I don't even use it on my Mac at all because the performance is so terrible it's practically unusable (Safari is so much faster it's ridiculous) Pretty much every browser out there other than Internet Explorer is far superior to Firefox in every way imaginable, and even IE is making much faster progress than Firefox is in a lot of ways, not to mention that it's design is better in some ways (for instance, if one tab dies in IE8, the tab is quickly respawned if possible, and the other tabs stay running, ala Chrome; in Firefox, if one tab goes down you lose the whole browser).

Firefox is really becoming a dinosaur, and it really shows when I run it on anything that doesn't haul ass.  If an ad blocker as good as AdBlock Plus came out for a WebKit-based browser I'd switch in a heartbeat.

Edit: Just did the following Mac hacks:


...and now my G4 runs as good with Tiger as it did with 10.1 (err, I guess they unofficially called that "Puma?").

Kind of funny how I have to hack things out to get it to run well considering how good the "Mac experience" supposedly is, but I guess I can't complain much considering it's an eight year old computer.  Newer Macs run very well with the OS features all maxed out so it's definitely the age of the machine that's dragging down performance more than anything else.

From the same person. This article is amazing: http://malstrom.50webs.com/birdman.html

Warning, long response ahead.

Yes, it's a long read, but it sums things up amazingly. I never really realized what Nintendo was doing, but it makes so much sense, and I can see it happening. I've always felt that casual games was a crappy way of describing the games, though part of the idea fit (the fact that many of the people playing the games are non-gamers or ex-gamers). Now I see exactly what's happening, what what "casual" games really are. The only true casual games are the plastic dog games, the absurd attempts at targeting people that many of the developers see as being retarded, and their failure is entirely inevitable, if not destined the moment they began creating those abominations.

I will say though that this article scares me a little bit. Because we know that some time, the low tier games that we see now will overcome the current upper tier games, and eventually replace them. Well, maybe not entirely replace, but the fact of the matter remains that there will be a revolution in the gaming market, and it's only a matter of time. I'm a little scared that I may not even like the games coming out then, despite preferring older games to many of the newer ones (with obvious exceptions. I still find WM2 incredibly fun, considering I've never experienced any lag problems at my friend's place). While I do enjoy playing games like bowling in Wii Sports, I also enjoy games like MW2. I feel like I'm somewhere between the tiers. I like many SNES age RPGs, who lack both in story, and in graphics from the new breed of epic RPG, but are nowhere near the level of the basic RPG that has nothing other than the mechanics of an RPG.

But I'd like to stay optimistic. I personally hope that someone will catch on to what I want, and create something new that catches my attention. There are always people looking to do new things with games, and maybe one of those innovations will catch me. Maybe in the future, when that happens, they too will use disruption to bring about a new era of gaming.

It's scary because a LOT of them are now succeeding where a lot of actual good games are failing (see Little Kings Story versus Carnival Games).

Also I can't get ANY game I "acquire" to run at all. Battlefront 2, Hitman, and DMC4 all ask me for a disc after I install them. Even after I did EVERYTHING this readme file told me to do I still can't run them...

Post by: Eggman on January 16, 2010, 02:21:35 AM
Actually, I'd bet that the upper tier games costing too much would kill off most of the upper developers long before your average trash game outdoes them in sales and kills them off.

The only reason the original gaming crash happened was because there was no real dedicated fanbase for gaming and no one had any way of differentiating the copy cats and trash from the actual good games. Things have progressed to the point where that's really not possible anymore.

But yeah, I've known about that Malstrom article for a long time and it's pretty much 100% true.

Weird as hell.  I don't know if the problem is specific to the Droid or not, but I haven't had a problem like that with my G1 (which was running the stock HTC/T-Mobile build of Android 1.5 at the time the article was published).

Regardless of what the issue was it's definitely fixed now.  Both my cousin and his wife have Droids and it hasn't affected them at all.

im thinking of doing something crazy

dropping 300 bones on a tripple

obviously i would get mgs4 (yay for budget games) and nobi nobi boy, possibly even uncharted 2 later.  but uhh what else?  im interested in wipeout for some reason, i haven't played much, but the tripple version of wipeout just looks like rez: the racing game, which is awesome.

i WILL get a tripple eventually, but i mean it could be tomorrow it could be next year.  mass effect 2 comes out soon, but, shit son i want a tripple for some reason, i really don't know why.  the only thing preventing me from getting one is "hey, i could play many of those good tripple games...on my treesigsty"

something ive been thinking about anyway.  demons souls and ff13 are also possibilities.  and like multiplayer games which are multiplatform, 360 wins by default since nobody i regularly hang out with owns a ps3. 

figured id throw that out there so y'all can throw words back at me, maby tell me to save my money for crack and porn instead.

That always makes me laugh. Not saying it doesn't (360 controller is basically designed for FPS games) but as someone who enjoys shooter on a PC it's still funny as hell to see.

Also I hear KZ2 has a few balance issues along with a fairly goofy auto aim system.

kind of thinking about starting a maleshep adept, the maleshep looking like the standard shepard that bioware uses as the stock shepard.  just because it's hard enough making a good looking character in mass effect, it's even harder making a good looking dude, and frankly the default looks fine to me.  i can make an alright black shepard, but the "white" voice with a black face is a bit weird. 

so balance that with bayonetta, the last episode of season 1 for sanctuary, farscape season 1 after that's done, and my recently purchased stargate atlantis season 2(fifteen bucks at the walmart mang). 

y'know, i think i have enough on my plate to keep me occupied until tuesday dontchathink?

Of course, that would mean that they would have to fix it themselves, which they probably wouldn't and would just hold onto the house forever, doing absolutely nothing with it until an investor shows up wanting the house just to resell it and not actually live in it. And we can't fix it ourselves because we can't close on it because of the problem. It's a very retarded cycle and I have no idea what's going to happen with it. I JUST WANT TO LIVE IN A HOUSE.

Post by: Spectere on January 27, 2010, 02:43:49 AM
I don't remember the last time I played a game that went from being insanely fun to being complete shit as fast as NFS: Shift*.

For as much emphasis as they put on technical vs. aggressive driving, they basically force you into a technical technique for many of the events.  The only things that I found fun about what I played were the tier 1 races (didn't do the time attack races, fuck that) and some of the invitational ones.  Pretty much the entire rest of the game sucked.

First of all, there's almost no point in buying or upgrading a car.  Per NFS tradition, upgrading a car only winds up causing the CPU's cars to get upgraded twice as much.  From what I've seen of tier 2, you're best off just sticking to your stock tier 1 car.  Additionally, many of the races force a particular make upon you.  Unlike racing sims like Gran Turismo and Forza, races that require a specific make or model provide you with a car to wreck race with, making the garage almost entirely pointless.  Furthermore, there are very few cars to pick from and very few garage slots available, making car collecting impossible (in contrast, in Forza 2 I own every single car in the game, as well as every car in the DLC packs, proving that I suck at life and that there are some sick bastards that enjoy doing that sort of thing).

Second, the difficulty is all over the map.  With most races, easy is too easy, but with special challenges like the car battle (essentially, a head to head challenge with two "equally matched" cars) it gets fucktardedly difficult, necessitating a switch to easy if you don't want to rip all of your hair out.

Third, despite the game's insistence on forcing technical driving, the engine itself really isn't suited for it.  Despite the game SHIFTing (HAR HAR) its focus to simulation racing rather than arcade racing, all of the cars have very slippery handling, to the point that it takes practice to keep even low level cars on the road.  In other sim racers, like Gran Turismo and Forza, you'll find it hard to lose control with the earlier cars unless you push it to the limit.  There are also a few bugs.  I've literally had my car spin out on a straight away for no apparent reason a few times, causing me to drop several positions in the race.  The game is pretty much doomed to disappoint those who enjoy the campy, arcade-style NFS of recent times and sim racer fans.

Another thing that pissed me off was their attempt at implementing road rules.  The system that they have to detect when you've cut a corner is buggy to the point of being useless.  I've literally had it invalidate my lap time and flag me for my tires on one side going slightly off the road and allow me to, quite literally, bypass entire strings of turns by simply going off-road.

The damage effects are pretty cool, but they grow very tiring.  For one thing, the AI drivers aren't affected by them, allowing them to go on without fail despite driving into another car going 120mph.

Oh, speaking of the AI, it definitely seems to cheat.  While this is no surprise, given that it's another NFS game, it's still annoying.  They always start perfectly, they can almost always run you off the road without so much as losing speed, and never take more than a couple of seconds to recover from being knocked far off the road or spinning out.

But, anyway, I think that's it for now.  I guess I shouldn't be too surprised; the NFS series has been a joke since Underground was shat out (though at least Underground and Underground 2 were fun and playable).

It earns the distinction of being the first GameFly rental that I've sent back within six hours of opening the envelope.

*I could make a joke about the title, but I'm way too mature for that.**

  • THE BUILT-IN SPELLCHECKER (everyone needs this)
  • if you use Gmail, Gmail Notifier
  • and ForecastFox is nice (it's currently 18F here Q_Q)
I hope these aren't the ones you say chrome doesn't have.

I have chrome's AdBlock in mine.
Chrome has it's own download bar by default.
It has it's own spellchecker built in as well.

No, just general recommendations. I use more specialized stuff for translating

And, to be honest, even if Chrome did have/get more extensions, I'd still keep with Firefox. Until I see a reason to change personally, I tend to stick with it
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Bobbias on January 29, 2010, 05:06:42 PM
Well, to each their own, I know FF has some useful translation addons, but I doubt that that would be enough to keep me using that for everyday browsing. I just find chrome to fit my uses better. Personally,m I think it runs faster on my computer (by a fair bit) than FF, and it takes up less screen space (which has always been a major plus, since I don't have dual screens on my laptop).

But yeah, I wouldn't expect any of those addons to have been ported to chrome yet (keyword yet).

Also, maybe my list of stuff will help anyone here with chrome looking for extensions.

I was looking at CPU usage of FF to GC Bobbias and GC uses about 23-24k of CPU usage where FF uses almost 300k-600k and it does not fully close at all...that becomes a major pain espically when I play something like TF2 which is more CPU intensive.

Post by: Bobbias on January 30, 2010, 08:06:01 PM
That's not cpu use, that's ram use.

Something you need to consider, chrome has each tab in a separate process, and each of those processes takes up like, 60k average (depending on the page). Chrome eats ram just like FF does. Thing is, it's more secure, because each tab is a separate process, and all the other security measures they use. And on top of that, it takes up less CPU use (not ram) than FF does.

I don't have any exact numbers right now, but at some point, I'll do a comparison.

Also note, I use the developer builds. There's usually a huge difference between the dev builds and the stable releases.

You don't have to be hardcore into it like some people are. You can just sit and watch something and enjoy it. Of course you aren't gonna care, but watching it is fun.

My girlfriend said the same thing but we still watched the World Juniors. We are going to watch the 'lympics. Its just gonna be fun, seeing what people all over the world can do.

I dunno, I like to think that it IS possible to enjoy something and still not care
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: Bobbias on January 31, 2010, 12:49:29 PM
Well, I kinda like following soccer. The world cup, and such. But I care more about who wins the game, rather than watching the entire game. I'd be fine just getting updates about who won or lost each game, etc.

Mind you, I do sorta agree with your assessment. Thing is, there is so much more stuff to pay attention to and such, and it becomes so much more   immersive when you can get into something. It makes me feel like it's not even worth paying attention to the game if you can't see it on that same level.

So last night, I drove the mile or so to my friend's house for a party.  Trying to find parking in that area really blows (and my friend's neighbors that live on the floor below them are real dicks about parking within fifty feet of the house, even if you leave the one spot they need wide open), so one often has to circle a block once or twice before they find a good parking spot. 

Apparently, circling the block a few times makes one look suspicious.  Or so says the cop that pulled me over right as I found a place to park my car.  Haha.  He was fairly nice and all; he didn't even want to see my license.  I kinda wanted to argue when he told me "Well, you can just park on the street, y'know."

Yeah, you can but not when the cop that's about to pull you over is sitting in the one available space on the main road.  Doofus. 

Must have been a slow night at the section 8 housing complex.

Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004

It's not the best neighborhood by any means, but that particular street is generally ok.  There's some "drug activity," but for the most part, the biggest thing anyone ever gets nailed for is breaking a window or being dumb enough to smoke weed on the street. 

About a mile or so away though, there are a few spots that are less-than-savoury.  Some gangs (that have little grasp of proper spelling, by the looks of their tags), and there's an apartment complex that gets several calls to the police every week.

There are some pretty crazy hits there. Watch for the one where the helmet goes flying. Also note that they are allowed to hit the person with their lacrosse stick. There are almost no rules on what you can't do in lacrosse.

If you arrive after 9am, your chances of getting a spot in the lots that actually belong to the school are next to nothing.  There is, however, another lot not terribly far away.  It doesn't belong to the school; it's typically used for Heinz Field whenever there's something going on there, but they don't raise a stink if students park there when there's nothing going on.  Well, they don't even mind if we park there if there IS something going on.  But then we have to pay $15 to get out of the lot.  Haha.  But sometimes, even that lot is filled.  Then, you've got to find a space at a meter, which is nigh impossible at almost any time of the day.


In other news, I just learned that I'm going to be in for one BUSY Saturday.  Turns out that my bowling match isn't a match at all.  It's a damn tournament; which means that I'm going to be bowling a minimum of three sets.  @_@ 

Then, I've got to get back to my campus in time for halftime at the basketball game so I can appear in the homecoming court.  So I'll almost certainly have to bring my dress and stuff with me and change in one of the bathrooms. 

After that, there's a party. 

Then after that, there's either me going to a friend's birthday shindig, or I'm going to my friend's place to play DnD all night. 

Happy news is that I made a profit of like $30 today.  For some reason, my team was allotted $50 to get food today.  And there's two of us on the team.  So my teammate and I each got $25.  And I was given $10 by my parents to get lunch for the next few days, but my friend took me out to a nice sushi lunch this morning.  So after buying my breakfast/coffee this morning, I wound up with like $30. 

Whoo.

Thanks; I'm going to be a Japanese major because I want to be a translator (ie nothing Hawaii-specific)

It was either there or California (New York sucks a dick), but California has more strikes against it (no real public transportation system Q_Q) so I went with Hawaii

On top of that, he should be getting lei'd.  :3

Yeah, we've got 2+ feet of snow around here, it seems.

I can't wait to let the dogs outside in this.  <3

One of my dad's boats.  Haha.  The snow's a lot more shallow over on that side of the yard.  On the side actually by my house, it's at least three feet deep.  xD  I love it.

At least until someone comes around and plows this

That'd be nice, yes.  But as of a few hours ago, that back street was plowed. 

I still really can't go anywhere though.  Most of the roads around here are impassable.  Fortunately, my school just announced that it'll be shut down tomorrow as well as this entire weekend. 

The genius running the bowling tournament that was supposed to happen Saturday, but got pushed to today STILL wanted everyone to show up by 9am this morning.  Never mind the idea that we can supposedly be cited/fined for being out on the highways right now. 

Also in the unfortunate pile, the homecoming game/dance got postponed to some date that has yet to be announced.  I'm hoping that the date they choose doesn't coincide with the state or national bowling tournaments, seeing as I'll be in State College/Buffalo, respectively.

Buffalo.  Bah.

Well, if tiny XP still uses the same install system as regular XP (the oldschool DOS graphics installer on the CD) it should. There's an option on that where you basically tell the installer to just delete the old windows on the system and install a new one, leaving all the other data untouched.

basically they are hit with a weapon, and the crew has their bodies switched around.  

so uhh, a man switching bodies with a woman...results are this

Sounds fucking horrible. What weight ball do you use?


Fifteen pounds.  The weight isn't so bad, but the fact that my fingertips swell up late in the second game is the real pain in the ass.  After the eighth game, it got so bad that I had to go outside and shove my hand in the snow for a while to try and bring the swelling down.

I really need to try and get new fingertips put into that ball soon.  They've always been a tight fit, but now that I've been bowling so long, my right hand fingers are noticeably wider than my left.  It'll suck if I have to bowl while my hands are cold and thus slightly smaller, but since we usually get ten minutes of practice, odds are I'd have enough time to literally warm up.

I really have no reason to bitch about being single because the only girl I had a shot with finished school and went back to Colorado while I ended up in surgery and resting for two months and I have yet to find myself a real job so it's not like I have any real right to try for a relationship when my priorities are so shot.

as much as i disagree with you, i agree with you here.  im not really concerned with finding a chick till i have a few things down.

though on the rare chance i do find somebody before then(im a shut in), why the hell not.  not going to be sad about it in the meantime, be happy with yourself first then be happy with someone else.  

i do get invited to parties and whatnot, but you know the me and drinking thing?  yeah, i kind of don't go because of that.  not my idea of a good time anyway.

*edit*

i was thinking.  anybody go to work on their day off just to chill out with your bros who are working?  well, obviously the job has to be lax enough to allow for such a thing.  but i mean ill make a 5 minute trip for some free food into a 60 minute trip for some free food while chatting up my homies who work there.  fuck, i don't even mind helping out off the clock if im having some good conversation.

preordered that final fantasy 13.  got the release day shipping, $6 extra.

it's either pay the money for release day shipping, or pay about $5.00 in gas to go to the next town with a gamestop for a chance to get my game if it isn't sold out already.  i prefer just waking up and having my game at my house, saving myself a 40 minute round trip drive plus expences for food and whatnot ill probably want to buy when im there because im fat. ESPECIALLY if i bring bros with me, because i usually end up buying random shit when im with my peeps.

I plan to go to the midnight release because the guys at the nearby GameStop are all pretty cool and one of the girls there is pretty hot and talks shit about her bad customers with me. We trade retail stories haha. It's also usually a pretty dead GS so it's fun to just go and hang out with them. I've rearranged stuff with them a few times, even when their manager is there. Working there is apparently terrible though as they don't get actual paychecks unless they get direct deposit and GS corporate is really resistant to letting people do it that way.

Got about 80 bucks myself and I'm ready to spend. Thinking of getting STALKER CoP (despite CS spitting in my face) and TvC. I'm thinking of just waiting for Metro 2033 after all the stuff I heard about it tho (from what I gathered it's basically a more survival based STALKER, which is my favorite aspect of STALKER).

Idunno, Metro 2033 doesn't seem that vastly similar, I think it's supposed to be a lot less open-ended than STALKER. I still think you should get CoP, forget about CS, and just rush straight through the plot or something, or just read a spoiler, the ending isn't that impressive, but it's kind of handy to know about while you're playing CoP since Clear Sky gets brought up a couple times.

Don't use iTunes, pretty much. Winamp, foobar2000, VLC... pretty much any updated non-commercial media player plays flac out of the box, though foobar2000 has the best support for them.

im pimping the site for this dude that streams here.  the man likes psytrance and rjd2 so he's pretty alright in my book, despite being vegan.  

http://www.starcraftmethod.com/

name is lumi if you are interested in watching a stream.  though, you kind of have to be interested somewhat in starcraft...im still pimping the site, so yeah, that's the link.  

*edit*

so i mention sf2hdremix in the chat, some dude says he plays, im about to sleep but he wants to play...60 matches later and yeah.

course i got my ass kicked, and he did play ryu, it was pretty fun.  i mean, it's hard to compete with a guy who plays every day and can beat people that are damn good at the game (like kickass t-hawk player jigglynorris), but even though i lost...52 or so of those 60 matches, it was never really THAT onesided.  the man plays a good zoning game, and he has a really high success rate with comboing into his super.  basically, two and a half hours of getting my ass kicked, but not getting mad or frustrated at all, but actually getting better at the game, all based on one comment i made in a livestream of the starcraft 2 beta.  i mean, in the later half of the matches, i was able to get off some of my shenanigans just by knowing what he was going to do.  i mean you can't get better fighting people that suck, and you can't get better fighting people way out of your league.  you can get better by fighting people at your skill level or just better than you, but not so much better that you can't do anything.  

lariat knockdown
advance to ryu
ryu dragon punch
block and spd

know he knows i know he is going to dp

i love the internet.  but with that said, if anybody wants to play some hdremix on the 360, hit me up, i fucking love that game.  when im not fighting akuma.

so it's like 10:45, and i generally sleep at 7 or 8...im going to bed, bai.

I'd agree with boobies, that was definitely the hardest part for me when I first started. Then again, you probably had a car with a bad second gear (my friend used to just get a higher RPM and go straight to third to skip his second gear) but yeah, average cars are harder to start.

For me, actually learning it wasn't hard at all, but getting it down so I could easily go through traffic and downshift and brake when I need to was sort of a bitch. Highways are your friend for learning stick.

not exactly worth buying a ps3 for when everything is multiplatform now a days.

ahh well, i guess ill blow my tax money on something else, or not blow it at all.  thinking about maby getting a new video card come sc2, my current card is good, but i hate how loud it gets when anything tries pushing it, or games that don't support both gpu's.  i would even take a shittier card which is quiter under load. 

but i built my pc a year ago, when im not thinking about making a pc, im not following the hardware scene, so i don't even know what cards are good or not.  even thinking or talking about it isn't relevant because when sc2 comes out months down the line, new cards, new prices.

also not get an obscure card that nobody uses, i mean, 4850x2, they sold those for about two months.

I ended up justifying a PS3 by first getting a 42" plasma TV and then wanting a blu-ray player, along with the ability to play games like Heavy Rain and Final Fantasy 13 and the better versions of a few other RPGs and Yakuza 3. I guess I just like the Japanese/European approach to gaming over the US's.

In any event, hooray my friend Paul came over and helped me reformat and install Windows 7, which really is what Vista should have been. Half the space taken up with all of the stuff I need installed and it's not as much of a resource hog so it's even made a difference on games. TF2 runs better now.

the 360 and ps3 are pretty interchangeable for the most part.  though, one big mark against ps3 for me is the lack of party chat, which when im playing....anything i like to be able to talk with my friends.  

*DDEde

i am thinking about possibly maby almost playing oblivion

but not vanilla oblivion, fuck that, ive tried already, im not doing it.  

a leveling mod alone is basically MANDATORY for that game, but while im at it i may as well add some other mods to make my experience with the game actually fun.  im hearing Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul is pretty good, but i don't really know what it does other than a lot of things.  anywho, i guess ill spend some time later compiling up a list, then uhh, maby even ressurecting my lets play thread or something, but im saying maby because the last time i played oblivion i wanted to hang myself.

seriously though, it's so goddamn simple, but bethesda uses the same retarded leveling system.  instead of "level shit governed to x stat a lot before leveling to get the full x5 mod" it should be "you gain x stat point for every y amount of said skills governed to it you level".  doing it the way i just said would encourage the way they intended you on playing the game, however the hell you wanted.  i can go around pissing around doing whatever, without worrying "ohh fucking no i accidentally jumped and leveled acrobatics when i am not planning on leveling speed this level, time to reload".  it may not be a big deal to others, but im mad fucking anal when it comes to this stuff to the point where my obsession with trying to be perfect, ends up ruining the game for me.  i could just forget about it, but that's something i can't really do, just feels wrong brah.  

it's probably why i enjoy morrowind more.  get a lot of money (really damn easy to do), go to skill trainer, indefinitely level up, get 100 in each stat, then play the game as you please knowing it's impossible to stat fuck yourself.  the damn 5 skill level trainer cap in oblivion takes away the point of using a trainer in my opinion.  though, the world of morrowind is a lot fucking better than oblivion, as a game, it's not as fun the combat sucks, ill be frank.  but in oblivion you can't break the game as hard as you can in morrowind, which is part of the fun in my opinion.  and fuck level scaling, ruins the whole game.  "ohh i am level 4, there is a cave with bandits in level 4 armor"  "ohh i am level 20, the same cave i was in at level 4 has the same bandits, only in level 20 badass armor, where did common bandits get level 20 badass armor?"  "ohh i am level 4, i will never find that super badass armor hidden around somewhere in the world, i have to level to get that stuff"  in morrowind "hey i am level 4, but i found this locked door hidden somewhere in a town i was looking around in, i ended up finding some glass armor, hot damn this is cool"  now level scaling can be fine, they learned their lesson with fallout 3, but oblivion just has retarded level scaling.  

http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Oblivion:Efficient_Leveling


rant over, if i end up doing this, see me in my oblivion thread when i bump it.  i might do screenshots or i might deal with an extremely ghetto video set up, or i may do neither, i don't know yet.  
*EDITING THIS BITCH*

Quote from: the website i copy pasted this from
Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul
OOO is a massive scaling overhaul with one unique selling point: With it the world actually doesn't resolve around the player. Beside features like stopping Bandits from appearing in Glass Armor and other strengths most listed mods have, there are more and less dangerous areas. Coming with this is much more content for high level characters. There are many new enemy categories which pose a challenge for them, which creates a more believeable experience. You won't fight beefed up Conjurers at high levels, nor will they suddenly be replaced by Plane Summoners - instead there are Plane Summoner hideouts from the beginning of the game, and you can try them whenever you think that you can survive. No mod listed so far has this feature, which is so classical in RPGs. For indidual actors OOO is somewhere in between Fran's and Warcry - they're adapting a bit to your level, but are not fully scaled. An Plane Summoner may have a minimum level of ~20 (so a low level character will be overwhelmed) but a maximum level of ~25 (so he won't always be stronger, but only adapt a little). Also OOO includes many new items, creatures and many more aspects. To summarize it: Fran's is Oblivion with a level scaling like it should have been from the start, while OOO is Oblivion like it should have been as a successor to Morrowind.

OOO is really awesome, I've played through a character with it. There's also several bug-fix patches you ought to track down. I'd just cruise around major Oblivion mod hosting sites and see what has gotten the most downloads/best ratings, and pick and choose from there. People tend to really only download stuff that doesn't suck horribly and/or is pretty balanced, so that's a good way to judge what's good or not, at least from my experience. But I haven't played Oblivion for a few years. @_@
Title: Re: PRODUCING POSTS OF LAMENESS SINCE 2004
Post by: vladgd on March 02, 2010, 03:06:18 AM
yeah i modded that bitch up with OOO and af leveling. 

af leveling is pretty nice, i haven't played far at all, like i got out of the sewers and hopped around the imperial city.  leveled up acrobatics, which must have been enough to level my speed stat by 1 that instant.  in order to level, there was 6 different options to pick, but i did the 10 major skills/100 minor skills option. 

so basically, leveling up itself is similar, but the way you had to manage stat points is fucking gone, which is perfect.  with OOO there isn't really any level scaling for the most part so no going "ohh fuck i leveled up non combat stuff and the enemies get stronger while i remain weak"


also, been thinking about 40k again, a friend of mine wants to play, and i don't want to play until i figure out what army i want. 

i had a bad experience with orks, i like them, but i don't want an ork army.  so i basically have two options.

necrons, i hear these guys are fucking durable...but a bit boring to play. 

tyranids, kind of like orks...but not.  might be hard to play?  i don't know.

leaning towards necrons, but nids have dat carnefex....I CAN'T DECIDE :<

going with marines is like picking the popular character of a respective game, orks as well i guess.  i don't like melding with the masses, i have more fun going with lesser used but not shit characters/armies/races/classes.  i don't hate it because it's popular, i just want something less used to bring a little diversity to the table. 

i like the space marines fluff, but i don't want to field any.  i hate the shit out of protoss in game in starcraft, but i dig the fluff. 

anywho, punch my immortal metal robot face because im leaning towards necrons since i might not want to field nids for the same reason i don't want to field orks.

That's largely my reasoning for who I pick in fighting games. Since I know my opponents will likely go along popularity lines, I go for lesser-used characters like Cammy in SF4.


I really am enjoying Windows 7 a lot. Games even run better just because it's less of a resource hog than Vista was.

I also found this pizza place that's really close by that apparently has won multiple awards for best pizza in the area so I went over there and holy god it's so good. I went with the italian sausage just to have something easy to judge and it's ridiculous. Pretty sure it's family-owned too. The only people working were an older woman and a younger girl of an age I couldn't figure out because she looked much younger than me but I was there around noon so she probably should have been in school if she was high school age. She was hot though, with crazily attractive eyes. I actually had a hard time looking her in the eyes for more than a few seconds when I was ordering. She had bandages on the underside of one of her arms from her wrist up to her elbow though so either those were from oven burns (highly possible while working in a pizza place) or she's a cutter.

I will be going back there. $4.50 for an 8" one topping pizza of orgasmic quality.

Grey Knights != Space Marines.

Even if it were the latter, do it anyway. People with problems are much more fun then those without.

It's pretty much how I made every file for IIDX songs. There are a few where I actually put work into them but it was usually a few minutes of looking at the Another chart and then pressing random buttons as I scrolled down. Then play once through to make sure there's flow and then add some doubles where the scratches are and you pretty much have 80% or so of the files I made.

My best files are clearly ones I made myself, like fffff or My DJ or Parade of the Wooden Soldiers. At least I think so anyway.

Personally, I thought I did pad charts better than I did keyboard charts. I used to carry a USB drive with all of my pad charts with me wherever I went just in case I ran into an r21 machine. I don't know where that drive went though and I've long since deleted all of my stuff after having to reformat. I don't even have Stepmania installed, or even know if it works with Windows 7 anyway. I'd kill to be able to play North and Old O and my other pad files in an arcade again.

Well, I never played any of your stuff on pad eggman, but I did enjoy your stepfiles. Somehow you managed to get a good flow with most of them despite the apparent randomness, lol. Just goes to show that making stepfiles doesn't have to have huge amounts of thought put into it to get ones that are fun. Of course, there are plenty of ones out there that prove that SOME thought is required...

I hear a PS3 one is easy to get working and that it has a nice Dpad.

i was out playing n64 with bros today, so i picked up a monster import.

first off, the can is fucking awesome.

second off, this tastes like monsters used to taste like.

basically it costs more than a standard monster, but you get a little more, it tastes better, and the can is awesome. 

it's like they make monster, it's awesome, they alter the formula a bit, tastes good but you don't notice the change, release new more expensive monster using old formula, monster classic. 

though, some people may not notice the taste difference, it's a bit subtle, but pretty obvious for me anyway.

my 40k problem solved, im going tyranids.  why?  they are fucking awesome, and that's all the reason i need.  if i am going to have miniature figurines around my place, they had better be fucking awesome.

Speaking of unemployment, I'm bored of it. Yeah yeah it's real nice to have pretty much total freedom, but it sucks feeling like a total drag on your parents at age 24. Even if the job's part-time and it's a handler position at Fedex (that is, putting boxes on trucks. boxes that weigh up to 75 pounds), it's a job and I need one. I should be guaranteed the position if I can actually get my ass out there too. I'd be using my dad and brother for references and my dad's worked for Fedex for 18 years (and is one of the highest rated couriers) and my brother's also extremely high-rated in every job they've ever tried him out on.

I just have to push myself. Freedom breeds complacency and that's the last thing I need right now.

I know EXACTLY how you feel, but trying to work on my drafting classes and work at the same time would be insane. It's not that I'm not willing to go to school and work, but doing drawing exorcises that can take a few hours on end to do while I have about 20 or so of them is just nuts. Still, I'm probably going to do some actual work next year and maybe take some side classes, assuming I don't pass my drafting stuff now.

That and I'm horrifically dependent and fairly lazy and bad with time management.

with a tron theme

now is that awesome, or is that awesome?  course getting the "look" will take a bit of work, time, maby glow in the dark/neon paint, and probably skill i don't have, but the turnout should be fucking awesome.  use like old circuit boards for the bases...

I THINK IM ON TO SOMETHING!

Final Fantasy 13 is REALLY good. After about two hours, you finish the opening chapter and they give you the actual character growth system and the paradigm shift system and from there on it's just awesome. The game is actually difficult too. Even just regular fights will kill you if you don't watch yourself and switch roles correctly.

As frustrating as that sounds for me, I love that idea.

A game that doesn't force you to use it's capabilities will always end up underappreciated, thanks to most people not fully discovering what you can actually do within the system.

I heard that it's the worst FF game of all time and Japanese game stores were selling at $20 (as opposed to $100) because of how fucking awful it is and also that it's really boring and actually not hard at all.  Confirm/deny?

Mind that I enjoy the first 10 FF games; haven't played 12 or any of the spin-offs.

Stores in Japan lowered their buyback prices on FF13, not actually selling them for super cheap. And it has nothing to do with its quality (which is amazing, fuck the haters). It has to do with the fact that 1 in 3 PS3 owners in Japan now own the game so there are TONS of copies and the stores don't want to pay too much if people trade them in. It's standard procedure for high-selling games there. MGS4 had the same thing happen to it after a month.

Uh, it's also the hardest Final Fantasy game. Like, in the entire series. I've died from regular battles and the only people saying it's really easy played only the first two hours and are pretty much retarded and should be shot.

The rest of the complainers are 2ch bandwagoners with nothing better to do than to try to drum up negative sentiment against whatever's big or whatever represents progress. FF13 is both of those things.

Trust me, it is REALLY GOOD.

I'm writing a chess game. Here's how it checks if a white pawn can move.

Code: [Select]
result = (turn || ignoreTurn) && ((xmove[1] == xmove[0]) && ((ymove[0] == 7 && ymove[1] == 5) && ((board[xmove[1]][ymove[1]] == '0' || board[xmove[1]][ymove[1]] == '-') && (board[xmove[1]][6] == '0' || board[xmove[1]][6] == '-'))) || ((ymove[1] == ymove[0] - 1) && (board[xmove[1]][ymove[1]] == '0' || board[xmove[1]][ymove[1]] == '-')) || (((xmove[1] == xmove[0] + 1 || xmove[1] == xmove[0] - 1) && ymove[1] == ymove[0] - 1) && (board[xmove[1]][ymove[1]] == 'p') || (board[xmove[1]][ymove[1]] == 'r') || (board[xmove[1]][ymove[1]] == 'n') || (board[xmove[1]][ymove[1]] == 'b') || (board[xmove[1]][ymove[1]] == 'q')));

Oh god my eyes D:

I would HIGHLY suggest using something like a switch/case statement. Even a series of If/ElseIf/Else would be more manageable than that. There is no reason at all to use such ugly, hard to understand, and hard to manage, code. If you were to ever return to that code at a later date, you'd find yourself looking at something that looks like a whole lot of nothing. Trust me. I've made the mistake of going "Hey, I can make this really short, and all work in one statement!" before. Too bad the next time you look at it, your mind decides it doesn't want anything to do with that code.

That is quite possibly the worst way to go about solving that problem. That code is bad enough I'm not even going to try to rewrite it for you.

It is in a switch/case, and I'm doing it like that on purpose. I know several ways I could implement it, including using objects, but I kind of like it this way. The black pawn is using a different system. The knights are also each using different systems. I'm just seeing how many ways I can program what can move where, regardless of readability. That's just the absolute worst of it.

Yes, it is a complete eyesore, as far as code is concerned, lol. About the only messier code I've seen (in person) is purposely obfuscated code. And that's a completely different story (The obfuscated C contest is damn fun to read entries for).

Hmm, I just noticed that I got the pg101 grab... Kinda seems appropriate considering my post count, lol.

And no, I'm not trying to be proud of having so many posts or anything, I just find it slightly amusing that of all the users here, I would be the one to actually get the p101 grab. I guess I'm the single most likely member, unless someone is actually posting more than I am now (quite possible, since I slowed down a lot recently).

Twas a good day.

Abundant sunshine, and the temperature hit about 60 degrees.
Then two friends and I went out for a sushi lunch, and then for some reason, to the "adult novelties" store down the street from the place.

Afterwards, slurpees in the park.

Good day.  Good day.

So I was writing in the code for a rook's valid moves in my chess game, but for some reason when I compiled none of the errors I should've fixed were actually fixed. Then I realized it was a case of PEBCAK: I was compiling the wrong file.

this post can be ignored as it is just my emotional rambling

i think it's about time i start getting my life in gear, im going to try not to make this post too emoey, as i am a bit teary.

to be blunt, i need to start doing things i have postponed.  essentially i have been working at this job, and waiting for new vidya to come out to play.  

that needs to stop, i should invest more time into looking into getting into college, thinking about what i want to do for a living, and start taking care of my body in terms of food/exercise.  

it's easy for me to forget about that stuff while thinking about my hobby, use excuses like "well im young" "i can always do it later" but no, even being content, i have a pretty passive view on the whole "suicide thing" now i won't get all baww about it, since i really don't feel bad about thinking about it.  it's just something that sounds nice, that i really don't have the cajones to do.  

now thinking like that is unacceptable.  

y'see, what i am doing right now is unhealthy mentally and physically, even though i maintain a very content mood.  like playing ff13, i wanted to get to the good stuff, growing impatient, hitting a boss continually kicking my ass, i rip out the disc, throw it, then snap it in half, while ravaging the case.  go into the 360 and delete the entirety of the final fantasy 13 folder.  and i cut my finger pretty good, but i didn't realize it until i started typing this.  

now this is an immature rage fit beyond a normal adult, but, it got me thinking, this shit has to stop.  

i don't want to work where i work any more than i have to.  i don't want to maintain this lifestyle, i just need to talk to my people to assist in motivating me, as well as not being a bitch and getting up and doing things.  

at the end of the day, if i don't get off my ass, and something just happens to alter my "content" mood, ill snap, and im gone.  it's kind of silly that destroying a video game has done this, but i reckon weirder things have happened.  

i damn well don't intend on changing who i am, but i damn well intend on bettering my physical heal, my mental health, and working towards my future.  i just CAN NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME PROCRASTINATE ANY MORE.  that includes fixing my internet addiction.  if anybody has anything to add, im all ears, this isn't going to be solved in a day, a week, a month, or even a year.  but anything i do to break my current lifestyle is progress.  

it's pretty shitty that i get all this said and whatnot, i feel like hell, but i have to sleep soon and get my ass to work.  great...

*edit*

reading this i look like a whiny 15 year old, maby i haven't changed so much from my high school persona.  

and fuck i am in one of those "i feel like tearing up and let it out" moods but i really don't want to do that right now.
