@The Mani Mani

Thank you, on both counts. :) Much appreciated.

@Kita

Happy Belated Birthday too. :-)

It's been a while since I went through Lost Woods, but I recall that I lit a torch off the last lamp stand, not entirely sure if that helped or not. I also can't remember if there are other lamps past that part but just harder to see.

I think if you move carefully enough you can see the point at which the mist starts to close in and reverse course before it kicks you out though which helps a bit. Worth the effort for what's inside though. :-)

Thanks all. It sucks big time, but it was hardly a surprise. She struggled with - and was involved in - a lot of bad stuff, so it wasn't matter of if, but when. I just wish she could have had better in this life. She died the day before my birthday too, so that was also really great.

I'm alright, just not happy. This was a huge addition to an already large pile of stress. Everything keeps piling on and won't go away.

@The Mani Mani

I'm 125 hours into BotW1, and still haven't seen half the world yet. I'm stuck in the Lost Woods. Wondering if I'm missing something I need to get through it, because there are no more torches after the pair that point you to just somewhere in the forest. I'm interested to see how the Switch version performs in terms of comparative frame rate and such.

@Delta V

I have a hard time remembering them myself. The list of things that take one away from them is not short, that's for sure.

@FM5K

LOL that's a great image. Glad I could provide a little perspective, if even for a second.

I'm definitely not going to tell anyone here not to discuss politics or anything. Go ahead and discuss whatever thrills you. It's the beauty of knowing you Otters. I'm just sick of the whole Trump/government discussion because it's everywhere. Television, newspapers, Facebook, Twitter, people talking on the damn street. I've had enough and I'm not interested anymore. So, while you guys argue about Strom Thurmond butt fucking the values set forth by Abraham Lincoln 6 years ago or whatever, I'm more inclined to think about obtaining Nier: Automata during the Steam Summer Sale, then sharing my thoughts on it with you guys.

Take from that what you will.

Just couldn't stand to be within the same national borders, eh?

Enjoy the Big Apple!

Trump just loves pisspot dictators, period. Everything they do. They're so strong, after all, and not hobbled by things like an opposition or a free press or financial disclosure or or or…

Also: indeed, Fuck Erdogan. If that coup attempt last year had been twenty minutes earlier in storming his hotel, things in Turkey would be…well, dunno if better is the right adjective, but definitely not this kind of fucked.

Also also: my new job's flying me into NYC for this coming week (I'm there Sun-Sat), and somehow I'm actually kinda glad Trump's off on his little foreign adventure the whole time. It's symbolic, I know, but nice to be in a different hemisphere from him while I'm on his turf.

by Delta VDelta V, 20 May 2017 21:15

So, we can add to the list of charges leveled against this administration:

  • Cowardice

For a would-be-strongman, Trump sure loves shutting up and letting pisspot dictators assault people, on American soil.

Also: Fuck Erdogan, on multiple levels. The Ottoman Empire isn't coming back, stop trying.


EDIT: Late posting on this, since I was out of state when this happened.

Also, being sent to another state, tomorrow. Just found out. Fun fun!

@Kita

So sorry to hear about your sister.


The "<3" came because you reminded me of the guy in the movie, trying to keep the team 'on plan', while everyone else is engaged in absurd hijinks. I couldn't help but picture you, standing in a half-destroyed bar, mid-brawl, holding up a controller, and asking, "Guys? Guys? Vidja games?"

And you're right.

It's easy to get caught up in the volatility of modern media, and forget to check perspective. Games are fun, and that's why we're hear.

Thanks for being that guy!

by Fapmaster5000Fapmaster5000, 20 May 2017 00:19

@Kita

Shit, missed that oh-so-important footnote earlier.

Shit. Sorry. You doing alright?

Also, what are these "videogames" you speak of? I remember something vaguely like them, back in my earlier days, before even looking at a computer means working on code or watching the world burn down via Twitter.

by Delta VDelta V, 19 May 2017 23:01

In the department of Good News, Chelsea Manning is finally out of prison1, and supposedly Jason Chaffetz is about to resign.

Bad news? Joe Fucking Lieberman234 is likely to be Trump's FBI director pick?

by Delta VDelta V, 19 May 2017 00:22

Roger Ailes can get fucked by a goat for all eternity. Fuck not speaking ill of the dead, he was a first-order shitstain and I'm glad he's fucking gone.

My only regret is that he didn't die sooner (saving quite a few people — and possibly his country — from his fuckery) and that he didn't live long enough to see whatever comeuppance his old buddy Trump is hurtling towards.

by Delta VDelta V, 18 May 2017 23:20

In other news, Roger Ailes :D :D and Chris Cornell :( :( have died.

I'm not really sure why Ryan would be fucked1. Hell, I'm not even sure Trump is fucked. The GOP has been cultivating the 25% of the electorate that makes up his base for decades now and they aren't gonna risk losing them over a little corruption and obstruction of justice, which are only bad when democrats do it.

Plus, if Trump is fucked, he might take Pence down with him (Pence is wrapped up in the Flynn mess), which would make Ryan president! What a nightmare!

by HawkingtonHawkington, 18 May 2017 21:24

Whelp, Ryan is fucked.

Also, Mueller and Comey were basically blood brothers under the Bush administration, so this should be good.

EDIT: Hawk, I'm gonna get a reply to yah, but drunk texting from my phone is not the optimal solution.

EDIT EDIT: Also, apparently, the attorney they talked to, when they took a stand against the warrantless wiretaps? Preet Bhahara. This shit writes itself.

by Fapmaster5000Fapmaster5000, 18 May 2017 03:16

What the actual. I mean I shouldn't be surprised at this point, but seriously.

by edisnooMedisnooM, 17 May 2017 23:57

Hey, I remember videogames. :-)

@Kita

Sorry to hear about your sister, hope you and your family are doing ok.

Nice Mario Kart write up, I don't have a switch yet1, but I may be tempted to pick it up if / when I do get one.

Oh and I beat BoTW2. Pretty fantastic all told, scaling the final castle and vanquishing Ganon. There is still a ton of stuff I have left to do in game though, exploring etc. The story behind the story with Link and Zelda is pretty great, and I would really be interested to know if they will build on that going forward.

I will say I like that you can actually go after Ganon from the beginning if you want. Your surviveability will be incredibly low but there is no physical barrier to prevent you charging in.

As far as old backlog games I try not to think too much about them, I think they're gaining sentience. :-)

by edisnooMedisnooM, 17 May 2017 23:57

@FM5K

Haha, I don't know what I did to earn the <3, but I'll take it.

Play all the online games if you must! As far as online stuff goes, I tend to veer towards quickie-type stuff like Team Fortress 2 or Rocket League. It's all good, so long as you enjoy it. I mean, I'm 120 hours into Breath of the Wild on Wii U1 and still haven't seen even half the total world yet. And yes once I finish it on Wii U, I will be starting over on the Switch because it's THAT fucking good.

And if you want to talk about years old games, I still have yet to see all the content from Hyrule Warriors. Plus I have piles of Steam, DS and Wii games that I've collected and have yet to play. Ugh. First World problems, amirite?

by KitaSaturnyneKitaSaturnyne, 17 May 2017 21:14

Kita

I <3 you for this.

Unfortunately, haven't been playing many new games besides MEA MP. I'm still playing multi-year old games like GTA online and WoT.

I don't know if that's good or bad!

So, yeah. Video games.

Remember those?

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch.

It is the greatness of Mario Kart 8 for Wii U, but more. More characters, more cars, and all the tracks you know and love, including all the DLC content from the original.

The Wii U version has a bug in it where vehicle stats will be rounded down to the nearest whole number. So, if your acceleration showed 2.75, the game would round it down to a 2. This game fixes that bug. There are also numerous revisions on the tracks. Places where you couldn't jump boost are now jump boostable, and the music even features instrumentation that sounds different from their Wii U originals. Two power ups return, all the way from the original SNES game - The Boo and Feather. Boo appears in standard races and allows you to steal items from other racers. The Feather will be explained below.

This game also fixes the one thing that kept Mario Kart 8 from being perfect.

They fixed. The fucking. Battle Mode.

There are actual battle arenas now, including a reconstruction of everyone's favorite arena from the SNES original. The Feather returns, and as it did back in the day, enables players to jump over walls, which is a great counter to slews of red shells.

I can't remember how many players can play at once, but if playing on one Switch, up to four can play. Via wireless, I hear up to 8, but I'm probably misremembering.

Anyway, provided you can find a Switch, this game is definitely a good choice, alongside Breath of the Wild. You'll be missing something by not playing it.

EDIT: I forgot to mention the addition of a new kind of drift boost as well. If you drift for a long enough time, your sparks will turn from blue, to orange to purple. A small addition, but does help give drifting a new feel while racing.
