Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

For more on Peterson, I think it was this ContraPoints video that marked the first time I found somebody who devoted as much time to analyzing and explaining Peterson's arguments as she spent refuting them, but I'm aware I'm still pretty new to this topic; there may well be superior responses to Pet...

Re: Obituaries

Yeah, I used to find value in his videos but I was privileged in my ignorance of just how involved he was keeping that garbage fire going; I unsubscribed from everything he produced after Lyrai rightly called me out on it. As somebody on MetaFilter said, "May he find as much peace as he granted...

Re: TEN THOUSAND POSTS BC

Congratulations! I'm glad to see you haven't been slowed down by that jerk One Post Man, who just coasts through life and steals credit from hard-working heroes like you. Sure, they say ten of your posts don't have even a fraction of the potency of just one post from him, but that's why you're the p...

Re: Comic Replacement Game 2001 - A Negative Space Odyssey

A systems migration at work and a move to a new apartment at the end of this month have made this something of a hellweek, but Saturday is the night I finish panel # 2.

Re: Perfect Porkchops

Supposedly there are some spoilers out there potentially dealing with the series finale, so I feel like this might be it -- the final countdown. (It's also why I clarified I was talking about the most recent episode, and everyone else has been too.) Granted, that could mean this year, or next year,...

Re: Pearl. Remember how much she wanted to show Steven the stars, to see how everyone was getting along without her? Pearl may have transcended the limits proscribed by her status in Homeworld, but that status was not without its share of benefits. I bring this up because I *do* think that one of th...

Re: (SPOILERS) Infinity War and Beyond (Marvel Thread)

I have not seen this because I only watch like two movies a year these days, but I did read through the Metafilter FanFare thread on the subject during a slow bit at work. The theory I liked the best was that the people disintegrating were not simply dying —the universe was instead bifurcating . Rea...

Re: A Drone? In MY Danger Zone?

Intriguing. I was pretty anti-Twitch for a while, but this doesn't seem too bad. I'll probably only be able to swing this if it's going in the late hours, and that's no guarantee. If I could actually get to a PC with any regularity, I might actually go on #finalfight more than once a year.

Re: Comic Replacement Game 2001 - A Negative Space Odyssey

This reminds me of a tabletop gaming group where one player has written their character's backstory, detailed every item they're likely to have access to, established a list of friends and other contacts, noted their probable relationships and opinions of the other completed characters at the table,...

Re: Comic Replacement Game 2001 - A Negative Space Odyssey

This is so easy, you guys. Just draw a picture. Then copy it and add dialog that creates an expectation in the reader's mind. Then draw something that subverts that expectation in a funny way, and then do the same thing a second time.

It doesn't have to be good; it just has to be fast.

If we have something other than the IRC channel (irc.esper.net, #finalfight), then I'm not aware of it.

I can vouch for this. Mothra and I once threw down, head to head, gams to gams. I'm dead now.

Re: Play Nier: Automata already

It"s just hacking, isn't it? That's what I assumed Brentai was referring to. I didn't really consider it a "special move" until I saw somebody go for several hours on Route B without using it.

Re: Play Nier: Automata already

I liked the "special move" in the second playthrough so much that I pretty much used it exclusively in 90% of all fights. Eventually I watched a steamer blind run of the game (Joseph Anderson's, if anybody cares) and it caused me physical discomfort because of how infrequently he used it. ...

I wish to participate again, although if anybody didn't get to play last time and needs a slot, I volunteer to sit out. I am very satisfied with my response speed last round, but since I don't even remember what I was going for with some of those panels and cannot now figure it out from context, I w...
