Re: "Coronavirus" is the category, dangit. (COVID-19 thread)

I could have sworn that Joxam or Mali got fired due to forum content at one point? Have my memories been cross-pollinating without my noticing?

Dunno if anybody's desperate to unload turnips today—it's only Tuesday—but Aintaer has open gates right now with 250+ bells per turnip at the Cranny.

Dang, that's pretty good. It's hard to say whether I'm more impressed by the power of the pro design tools or more unimpressed by how poorly I've used them.

We got this on Friday. By Sunday, Julie had purchased a Switch Lite and her own copy of the game.

Y'all tried that Eizouken show yet? My other forum has been hyping it up a lot, but I don't actually watch anything anymore.

Warren's out.

Does she even make an endorsement? Or is she waiting for a VP offer?

Re: Weeb List, Starring Friday's 10 Favorite

I have to ask myself, how much of my affection for the Endless Eight is genuine, and how much is just a stubborn refusal to alogn with the prevailing opinion? Do I actually like the arc, or do I just like inflicting it on people? I don't think I have an answer to these questions.

Re: Election 2020 - Here we go again

A friend on another forum pointed out the irony of the Democratic establishment pushing so hard for Biden under the myth that he's going to pull votes from the right in the general election, but as soon as those right-leaning voters start endorsing Bernie, suddenly it's a problem. I agree that Rogan...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

Disco Elysium I gave the game too little credit. The flaws I described exist somewhat, but I overestimated their prominence over the duration of the experience, and there are such sublime and surprising moments that I find myself not caring. This was a marvelous experience, even if I did miss stuff...

Re: Webcomics and

Not really sure we can still call it a "webcomic" exactly, but Homestuck 2 launched today. From what little is available, I think the following comparison is accurate.

Homestuck : the Homestuck epilogues : Homestuck^2 :: Twin Peaks Season 1 : Twin Peaks Season 2 : Twin Peaks Season 3

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

Disco Elysium is a funnier Planescape: Torment in a near-Earth setting with all the busywork combat removed. Character creation uses a four stat system that governs success in 24 skills, and how you build your version of your forgetful detective determines precisely which combination of tropes on t...
