Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

I wonder if it retains the AI learning progression. Might be a good way to let Cristo work out all his stupid on a tough boss.

But none of the bosses are really so hard that you need to.

Yeah, I looked up a recipe and it seemed pretty tasty, if you were gonna be making a punch.

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

I don't think any of the curses in the game are "occasionally lose a turn in battle"! The Demon Hammer is capped at 3/8 accuracy, so in a lot of circumstances that's effectively losing a turn, but when it does hit it guarantees a crit, so it's perfect for metal slime/metal babble h...

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

I never ran into that Outside/Wagon interaction before. That might be the only dungeon where it happens. That's ... interesting. The Zombie Mail, while cursed, is one of the few cursed items that can actually be worth using if you happen to get it. +49 Defense, compared to the +35 Full Plate you've ...

Apparently that's the specific part of India you go to where $100 will buy you a death certificate for your definitely non-fatal illness?

Re: Hot game deals

I mean, let's quote RPS's review of the third chapter , right? For example. Of the very few black characters in the game, one of them is being forced to be an organ grinder’s monkey. Yes, a monkey. A puzzle (of sorts) at that stage in the game is to first get rid of the organ grinder, and then to fi...

Re: Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents, and branding irons

Yes, a court could easily rule that way. It would even make a lot of sense for them to rule that way.

Not gonna happen.

Re: Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents, and branding irons

Failing to defend their trademark in any meaningful way is probably what got the trademark pulled. It would be nice to pretend that if they had done enough to preserve the trademark, they still wouldn't be able to apply a trademark on "Big Mac" against a restaurant named "Supermacs&qu...

Slack - the corporate world's answer to Discord, only worse, and with a pretty bad track record on Iranian users - decided to change their logo yesterday!

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

My roommate used to live in a very rural part of Michigan, and she told me a while ago that there is in fact a very real reason people do that.

It's because their cars have breathalyzers in the ignitions as part of DUI convictions. But tractors and riding mowers don't.

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

Yeah, I did runs when I was a kid just to have it, so that I could keep my money when I inevitably died. But it didn't ever work, not because the item wasn't there, but because if you do somehow have it in chapter 5, it fails to function. Spoilers, I guess, [spoilers]that when you do recruit Taloon,...

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

Actually, if Taloon never picked up the Iron Safe, it's still in the cave north of Lakanaba! You can go pick it up in Chapter 5!

But it doesn't work if you do. The remakes add a note about the hinges having rusted open.
