@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.

I'm actually playing the sequel rather than the original/remake but still I can't help but find this contrast hilarious.

contrast between a dark anime and a light/fluffy actual game, is it?

 

also, based on the ToZ costume I see... that's GE2? that seriously does not look good (graphics-wise) at all, I heard it was subpar but dang ._.

I actually really like the graphics. Maybe the resized resolution is bothering you? (Well the PS4 version is just upscaled from the Vita but I'm playing on the handheld so.)

still "eh" to me but better I guess, idk somehow I expected more from an expensive game like that but it seems like it's about Tales of level which is def subpar IMO... the new (or maybe not so new) thing seems to be "it's too much effort to make high-quality anime-styled graphics so we just stylize them a bit or use chibi graphics [namely on the 3DS]", I guess in that sense FFXV should be a decent change of pace even if it's maybe still held back by the console specs (I feel like if Square was just developing for high-end PCs FFXV could look even way better, not that I'm a PC nerd or anything but the game is like the pinnacle of JRPG graphics soooo lol)

Meanwhile, Leafy's idea of subpar graphics:

These are characters to a game called Stardew Valley, btw.

Idk I thought the graphics were pretty ok. I've never really been able to afford current gen stuff though, and frankly a lot of wiiu games are impressive to me. MK8 and xenoblade chronicles x are both good examples of that.

 

Edit: to be fair graphical quality means very little to me in terms of games as long as it isn't completely ugly. morrowind for example just didn't age well at all, so i like to put some texture/model mods on it to give it a little facelift. whereas i'm perfectly happy to play things like dragon quest 5 on the ds because while it isn't cutting edge it still looks very good, and is pretty easy on the eyes imo.

It depends for me.

 

Having been raised in the era of early PS1 and N64, (and I still play those games quite often, mind you.) I tend to be more forgiving of 3D models than I am 2D sprites, for whatever reason. For example, the lack of feet in FEA never bugged me, but when my friend showed me Etrian Odyssey's characters their slightly formless feet were one of the first things I noticed.

 

@morrowind: TBH, the entire series is kind of ugly. Skyrim was especially ugly. I had to download something to make faces prettier before I could really stand playing it. lol.

 

The point in my post was that blazer was calling the graphics subpar when I actually quite consider that to be beautiful because I'm used to things much, MUCH less detailed and smooth. lol

 

But then again, my biggest exposure to high def includes Smash Bros Wii U and Pokken Tournament. lol
