@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:55 PM) tho personally I guess I'm not too afraid of responding to old messages anyway sometimes, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) to have discussions where people respond at their own convenience
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) forums could still be used but we'd have to make a bit of an effort I guess
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) I agree with Mage Girl/Cero/Elwood/Kirant lolol
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:15 AM) And yeah missing stuff on discord is easy depending on when most people are online
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:11 AM) I think there are just fewer people interested in taking part on forums since most information is already accesible trough the many means.
@  Mercurius : (09 January 2019 - 02:46 AM) Well, at the same time I also don't frequent most of the discord channels I'm a part of, though.
@  Mercurius : (09 January 2019 - 02:46 AM) I used to prefer forums but I've been spoiled by the "everything at the same hub" thing...
@  kirant : (06 January 2019 - 07:39 PM) I'm of pretty similar opinion...it's easy to miss a good discussion on Discord (which plays much more into a "stream of consciousness" feel).
@  Elwood : (04 January 2019 - 10:42 PM) I prefer forums because they keep everything more organized. With Discord you can have 3 conversations jumbled together and not know what anyone is talking about. It's also way easier to miss stuff.
@  Cero : (31 December 2018 - 07:23 AM) mhmm, its rough
@  Mage Girl : (29 December 2018 - 11:33 AM) I feel like a lot of forums have much less traffic because most of us who appreciate them are much busier than we used to be, and I don't think the younger generation is too keen on finding forums anymore
@  Mage Girl : (29 December 2018 - 11:26 AM) @Fire Blazer No worries, I figured holidays and all you weren't going to respond right away
@  Fire Blazer : (28 December 2018 - 09:16 PM) @Mage Girl, sorry I just saw your message, replied to your PM just now, hope you see my response!
@  Fire Blazer : (28 December 2018 - 09:10 PM) even SF doesn't seem that active compared to before :(
@  Fire Blazer : (28 December 2018 - 09:10 PM) yeah rip, I did try multiple times to keep the forums alive but they just aren't really popular anymore
@  acceptance : (28 December 2018 - 12:44 AM) I came here for the shoutbox but now that I'm in the Discord server I seldom come here anymore.
@  acceptance : (28 December 2018 - 12:43 AM) Yeah.
@  kirant : (23 December 2018 - 07:42 PM) That's pretty true. I log in daily just to make sure there's no issues, but I think using a forum system isn't popular for quite a few of the users here.
@  Ezra : (21 December 2018 - 09:34 AM) Looks like this place had the same turn out as the TEB community, forums died for the most part but the members remain active via other means.

#131446 I don’t know what to say

Posted by kirant on 09 April 2018 - 08:41 PM

Hopefully it's something more minor.  My understanding of CSF leaks (as little as I've read about them) is that they are mostly caused by defects in the skull.  As you note, most are caused by blunt trauma to the head.  I've never heard the idea that it could be caused by a tumour before.

 

Hopefully the results turn up negative for cancer though.  Certainly keep us in the loop about how you're doing. 




#131106 Elwood Plays XCOM 2

Posted by kirant on 27 November 2017 - 04:40 AM

Hey thanks for the feedback guys. Yeah editing it I realized my speech wasn't the best( went radio silence a few times and slurred alot of words) and I need to balance my audio and the games audio better. Could definitely better but gotta be brave enough to publish the rough stuff if I want to get better. I have considered buying a good mic but I don't want to drop $100 and then only use it a few times. Once I get going enough to decide this is something I want to keep doing I'll get one.

Haha...no problem.  You're brave enough to throw it out there and that's the most important part.  Being able to speak, play, and think all at the same time is a tough skill.  The only way to really improve it is to practice it. 

 

Audio wise, I didn't notice too much.  Maybe I've been used to smaller LP individuals, but unless it's notably different (see below, where the voice of Makoto has a notable difference in audio quality from the rest of the cast), I really don't notice it that much.

 

Totally not because my old laptop has been dropped enough times that the audio is probably lucky to still be functioning

 




#130726 Thank you for everything.

Spambots are currently being shot in the face by me when I have spare time.  Current rate of intervention needed is about once a week or less.

 

We should be capable of allowing new registrations as long as some of the "Staff" team is still around.

 

Also, screw you Blazer.  Now I have to join Twitter :mellow:

All I've got to say is "Phi!".  The Zero Escape fanboy in me demands that I keep gushing how happy I am that someone else loves that game.

People have been asking in the Chatbox for me to move some of these posts and keep them for posterity's sake.  So here's one for you guys to keep archived. 




#128533 A shitshow just happened

Posted by kirant on 09 December 2016 - 03:24 PM

While I have no background with most of these individuals, correlating the archived images of the exchange and the comments on the SF topic would yield a similar conclusion to me.  Namely, the individual seemed more sorry they were punished for the action, not sorry for the actual course of events. 




#128449 Politics Thread

Posted by kirant on 14 November 2016 - 10:43 PM

since it hasn't really been talked about yet i'm gonna say it. i'm far more scared of pence. he's an experienced politician with the same problems that trump has, and his experience means that he actually knows what he can do with the powers he has. 

This is something I've seen discussed a bit in Canada...the world is 1 bullet away from having a president who argued for electroshock therapy for homosexuals.

 

I'm not as scared of Pence from a global perspective.  He seems less likely to press the big red button and doom parts of humanity.  But I'm more scared of Pence from an interior perspective.

 

I would also posit that Trump is more open to many of these points than people think.  He's already backtracking faster than me when I lose my wallet.  No wall, just a fence.  Maybe parts of ACA will stay.  Time to select established politicians.  I don't believe he stated anything blatantly anti-homosexual before running for president and it might become a case that he just kind of ignores the fact that non-heterosexual individuals exist at all.  It's typically been the other candidates and his crowds which were horrible people in that regard. 

 

What I am concerned about with a Trump presidency is that it validates these feelings.  That the homophobic take it as a sign that they were right and it's time to claim back America in the name of all that's good and holy.  We saw it with racists already (to which now Trump is trying to curtail with pleas to stop).  Time will tell if the same will happen again.




#127993 Looking for Feedback

Posted by kirant on 30 August 2016 - 03:42 AM

I think the only thing that confuses me is the exact portrayal of the character.  There is technically and artistically nothing wrong but I'd love to ask about the character herself as I think FE heavily integrates the portrait with the character's personality.

 

The image of the character appears as one which is either evil or at best morally ambiguous.  The cocky smirk and typical appearance of a villain give that impression.  She is also somewhat wild and uncontrolled (given by her uneven haircut) but not without some sense of femininity.  The lightness of her clothing would indicate likely a Sniper/Swordmaster class...or something with similar lightness in armour as marching to battle without defence indicates either an elegance in direct combat (as typically fits the swordmaster) or a reliance on ranged warfare.

 

A technical "annoyance" for me is the right of her lips (her right, by the way).  It seems to cut off too quickly.  Not sure if it's worth trying out, but a single extra pixel or two to represent that fight side might give her a more natural look.

 

Something that "bugs me" is the exact nature of her right shoulder.  On our bottom left, the colour of the sleeve becomes too close to the colour of her hair and it becomes awkward for my brain to interpret what is what.  A similar issue exists on her left hair (which comes down the front); it's difficult to discern exactly what is hair and what is collar.

 

The only REAL oddity in my mind is the colour choice on the shirt.  The back of the shirt is for some reason pink (see - the neck area).  I would traditionally expect a darker blue in that spot as this is the inside of the shirt and rarely do shirts have that reversible nature where the interior of the shirt is different colour that the exterior.




#127520 > What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

Posted by kirant on 19 July 2016 - 06:33 AM

In an interesting experiment to determine my level of sanity, both parts of Danganronpa 3 at once.  Surely this time they won't kill off everybody I could possibly find intere--

Well, I'll be in the corner crying again.  This is the worst game of Mafia ever.

Edit - you know, Zero Time Dilemma is apparently finally being delivered to me tomorrow. I think I might be emotionally comatose by the end of all this.


#127218 The NEW Post your Desktop thread...

Posted by kirant on 28 May 2016 - 03:55 AM

 

Pillars of Eternity is pretty much one of those Baldur's Gate-like RPGs of old, only a lot prettier and with a better UI, which means it can be a very nice experience, I think you should try it, whenever you have the money/time. Loading takes a little longer than it should, though.

Just to add onto this - it's a game where you can pretty much write everything you'd want about the character.  It's very much about the "role playing" part of an RPG.




#127177 bblues finally plays through FE Fates!

Posted by kirant on 25 May 2016 - 03:52 AM

Also, FUCK splitting this game, and adding Revelation as a DLC. I hate the video game industry. Remember when games were just given to you complete, well made, with no extra

I am interested in your ideas and would like to subscribe to your magazine.

For some reason, I'm hearing one of those stereotypical anime rich lady cackles while looking at that gif.

 

So powerful, it's a viable weapon.

Comparing to Sailor Moon Crystal, this is golden. I don't know what y'all are talking about "bad animation."

To be fair, comparing some of A-1's work to Crystal is like comparing a train wreck to a train wreck that happens on a dumpster fire with people dumping gasoline over it all.
