  1. Originally, to "hang up" the phone would mean to put it back in its place to deactivate it. Why do we say "hang up" for smartphones? What would we even call it? Disconnect the call?

      Probably "end call," but it's kind of awkward to say compared to "hang up" for me.

  2. Just watched Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained for the first time. Loved em both, and Quinten Tarantino is very loose with the n-word, isn't he...

      Haven't watched Pulp Fiction, but with Django I felt it's use was appropriate considering what time period the film was set in.

      It was, but it definitely felt more out of place in PF.

  4. My Little Pony: Friendship is Banned - Official Thread v2

    I could barely handle all the references they stuffed into this past episode, the MGS one made me double take. Maud wins best sick burn of the series! While I enjoyed seeing the smooze, I was not a fan of Tree Hugger. Too much of a hippie stereotype for my liking, that and potheads are annoying in general. I wonder how many headcanons and fan theories this 100th episode will destroy. The damage control will be hilarious.

  6. If you think about it, God of War is greek mythology fanfiction. And Kratos is the overpowered OC that kills all the main characters.

      It--that is, at least the first game--is pretty much a tried-and-true Greek tragedy.

      Kratos is a Marty Sue, nothing new here.

  7. Awesome, It's about time Nintendo gets a theme park. They're sort of lacking in merch outside of video games. And if Angry Birds of all fucking things can get a theme park then nintendo should too.
  8. one of my friends just came out as F-M trans. And everyone was cool with it. That was pretty great.

  9. Zelda Topic

    Hero's Shade explicitly points out that he was the hero in the legends. Also, Isn't it mentioned that TP Link is a direct descendant of the hero of time? There's no way Link could be dead in MM unless Nintendo is completely ok with making the implication that Link procreated at the age of 10 Or whatever age he is in that game.
  10. What exactly determines difficulty in a game in your eyes?

    In the context of combat: A combination of tactic, speed, and player skill. If a game makes me think quickly before I go all out on a boss using every skill at my disposal at a quick pace then that is what I define as difficulty, it's a challenge yet still fun and rewarding once you complete it. Stupid difficulty is having a really easy normal mode and then unlocking a hard mode that simply gives enemies a massive power boost and much more armor, and making no other changes. I can see how it might work in some cases, but really, a skilled player will not fall for the same tactics twice. Sadly, this is what most developers seem to be going for nowadays... even Nintendo, though they are a bit more subtle I guess. Even worse is no hit runs... yeah fuck that shit. In the context of game design: Make me think about where I have to go or what to do next, throw in subtle hints at best. Give me obstacles that have planning and thought as well as player skill to them, don't just put random shit in place or give me constant trial and error stages *coughunleashedcough* Lastly, set a consistent fucking difficulty curve. A lot of games have difficultt curves that either skew harshly ones way or the other, shard spike or drops and some are all over the place. It's always anticlimactic when a great game has an epic, yet piss easy final boss *coughgalaxiescough* So yeah, make me think, keep me on my toes, make me have tact in combat and keep getting consistently harder.

  14. Tabletop RPGs. The subject of many great stories, fun times, and much undeserved controversy by a handful of religious zealots and soccer moms. Started in 1974 by Gary Gygax, DnD has gone on to become the most well known tabletop RPG game of all time. It's had many editions over the years, the most popular possibly being 3rd edition, and after reading up on the rules for previous and following editions I can see why, it just seems so much more fluid. In these games, the scenarios play out in your mind as you control your character in any way you see fit as the GM (game master, also called DM) controls the environment, enemies, NPCs, encounters, and the world in general. It's up to you to control your character in battle, dungeons, and roleplaying in social situations while cooperating with other players and avoiding metagaming by separating player knowledge (what you know about the game) from character knowledge (what your character knows). Use this thread to discuss anything related to the genre, stories from your own campaigns, characters you've played/are playing, character builds, GMing advice, asking questions if you know nothing about this, or even starting an Online campaign with other members here. I personally got into this genre late last year. I had always ignored it because of the association it carried and realized what a fool I was for missing out on it for so long, and thankfully that association with satanic Cults has disappeared as of the early 2000's. It has sort of semi-overtaken video gaming for me because of how inexpensive it is to play. All you need to buy are dice and bring some imagination. I've played 4 campaigns so far, the first one I played was a 3rd edition one-shot 24 hour campaign where I played a human barbarian named Conan (originality amirite?) along with 2 fighters, a bard, and a sorcerer. We didn't get to finish it since one of our players was a batshit insane fighter that killed random/important NPCs for no reason and kept coming back as the same character every time he was killed, which happened a lot because the DM was pissed but didn't want to kick him out, eventually though the DM made him play a level 1 kobold servant, to our amusement. The third campaign I played was another one shot 12 hour campaign for a game called Call of Cthulu, which is an RPG like DnD except you are a regular person in the real world in a story like that of an H.P. Lovecraft novel dealing with mystery, death, cults, and elder gods, the game is even named after one of the novels. I suggest trying this game out if possible. The last campaign I played was yet another one shot 12 hour DnD Star Wars themed campaign, and it was pretty great, as it used star wars races and character classes. I played a Jedi guardian along with a Jedi consular, a wookie, a Han Solo-esque gunner, and a... gungan. This story was actually quite disorganized but entertaining nonetheless, especially since our consular decided to betray us at the end and join a sith lord. My second campaign is actually a long term one that I'm still in which is an MLP module titled Ponyfinder (Pathfinder but with ponies, almost the same rules as DnD 3e), our two players that don't care for MLP say that it doesn't feel too much different at all and they can still find much enjoyment out of it. Classes are the same but the races are MLP themed. I play an earth pony Paladin along with an earth pony ranger, earth pony druid, unicor bard, griffin fighter, and persian (cat creature) wizard, so yeah big party. This is my favorite campaign so far not just because of the theme, but because of player synergy and cooperation, and the fact that the GM is competent enough to keep up with his story and doesn't get mad when we do something that may mess up the plot. As of right now, I am working on a Zelda-themed hyrulean campaign to GM that I think is gonna be pretty cool once I finish it. Aurprisingly easy to convert creatures into zelda themed enemies.
