Hope everything turns out OK. At first I read that your extremities fell off, so at least that didn't happen I guess.

#1397384 Official Shizz Flea Market

When I moved to Phoenix I left all my game collection at my dad's house. After a few years I just sold it to a local game store. It was a little painful but the reality is I don't have room for all of that and it would way too much to get it across the country. 

It doesn't have to be all or nothing though! Do you have a handful of favorites you could keep? You could make a small space to have like a shrine of some of your favorite games or something.

#1397355 Sekiro: Shadows Die Constantly

Posted by raubhimself on 08 April 2019 - 01:49 PM

Having not played the game I can't really comment on anything too directly. But in Souls games you can kind of stumble through the game with luck, or co-op if you're having trouble, etc. And then you can go back and do it again, but better or faster, or with a totally different build or something. That kind of thing is what makes the Souls games fun to me. They are hard but there are ways through and it is rewarding to replay. Sekiro from what I've heard and seen seems like you have to fight things the one correct way, and deviating from that is not encouraged in any way. It's fine I guess, I know it is Not A Souls Game™, but it's certainly not something I am really into at all.[/size]
I'd love to be proven wrong though and eventually I'll try the game out.

#1397216 Donald Trump Is Your New President.

I didn't know about the welfare deductions on his UBI plan. I already didn't really trust/like him for basically the reasons you gave (extremely out-of-touch Silicon Valley type vibe basically).

The one thing I hate about UBI discussions (really more about job automation but that's what leads to UBI in Yang's case) is that the conversation is always framed as job automation being inevitable, like it's a force of nature we can't stop. But really, at any point we as a people can just say "let's not do that, actually". But that's never really part of the discussion, it's never questioned "Who does job automation benefit and should we allow it to continue unchecked?"

Take advantage of any counseling you can get at school even if it's short term. They may be able to refer you to someone to see afterwards. But in the meantime most universities offer free counseling and even if it's short term it could get you on a good path.

#1396318 Official Nintendo switch thread

Posted by raubhimself on 12 March 2019 - 09:32 AM

Man, I want to understand how y'all can deal with the voice acting/afterthought-story in Octopath. Even with the audio set to Japanese, I just couldn't handle that biz.

The number of games that I think have an actual good story I can probably count on one hand, so it's basically a non-factor in most games for me. But I'd much rather have extremely basic story like in Octopath (<villain> did bad thing, I must find <villain>) than more "classic" JRPG nonsense with life streams, time travel, pseudo-religious/science babble, etc.
