  1. It's a 5-minute walk from my house to the Pub and it's a 45-minute walk from the Pub to my house. The difference is staggering.

  2. Watched the first two episodes of Paranoia Agent. It is about an anthology series centering around a string of attacks that is causing paranoia, it is very dream like at points. If anyone is interested watching, it is on Funimation you need an account but it is free to view. Also watched the first episode of Sailor Moon. I have never felt so bubbly in watching someone say "Moon Prism Power!"

  3. This isn't really funny, but I think the most ambitious crossover was still WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT. In both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Supernatural case, they were ultimately dealing with in-house issues (Marvel and WB respectively). WFRR had to deal with (from memory) 5 different companies that didn't always like each other and their extensive rules for how their characters had to be portrayed to create a relatively comprehensive Toon Town (with some notable exceptions like Casper and Popeye) so that cartoon characters could seemingly exist in a human world. ... I know thi

  4. I finished GreedFall, it took just over 50 hours. Very good RPG, easily Spiders' best effort to date. I'm sure most people here have already played the game, so I won't go into details. Suffice to say that if you've played any previous Spiders' titles then it's like that, just more open, more polished. It makes me excited to see what they develop in the future. I also finished Death Come True, it's an interactive movie where you wake up in a hotel room with amnesia, there's an unconscious and bound woman in the bathroom, and a news report on the television claims you are a wanted serial k

  6. It should be fine for sample size. IIRC 95% confidence with +/- 3% for a country size typical population requires only ~1000 people, so long as you're able to weight respondents properly. You can download the report if you want and have a look. Don't think they charge for it, but I haven't downloaded it myself to check. Certainly can't accuse the Alliance of Democracies of deliberately commissioning a survey to give the answers they wanted, they're an impeccably pro western lot founded by a former NATO secgen. Not really something that you can accuse Teh Grauniad of though:

  9. Got to face time some family members living in Botswana. They typically visit our family in the summertime so it has been a while since we chatted. Their kids have grown so much since the last time I saw them and they are in high spirits. It is good to know that they are doing well.

  11. It's way too expensive with 2 Mortification for my taste. Escape is the better alternative imo. I need Mortification for other stuff. If you pick Riposte and consider the increasing returns of high deflection (and also keep in mind that Tuotilo's Palm gets +1 deflection/+1 reflex per wound) it's a crime not to use it imo. With Adept Evasion and Tuotilo's Palm + Weapon and Shield Style you will get missed by almost all reflex based AoE spells. ANd of course overcoming your deflection will be very hard. At the same time Tuotilo's Palm's damage is not that important if you apply stuff li

  12. A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.” The woman below replied, “You are in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You are between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.” “You must be an engineer,” said the balloonist. “I am,” replied the woman, “How did you know?” “Well,” answered the balloonist, “everyth

  16. Got tired of sitting hunched over my work laptop, getting a sore back and neck from starting *down* at the monitor all the time, so relegating my current PC monitor to become external monitor for my laptop (and one of the spare DAS mechanical keyboards I have) so I can sit in a proper work position at home. Bought a new Philips 28in 4K IPS FreeSync Speaker Monitor (288E2A) No idea if it's good or bad, but my "budget" for impulse monitor purchases was around 400 Aussie dollars

  17. Soul Blades - like all Ciphers, can cast Borrowed Instincts which raises all defenses by 20. It stacks with Monk's Crucible of Suffering btw. So defensively it's good. The combo lacks healing but as long as you're with a party that can be solved. Instead of a normal Monk you could also try out the Shattered Pillar. It generates wounds via auto-attacks. So you can punch which not only raises wounds but also focus - and then release it via Soul Annihilation. SInce you are using mods I would recommend the Community Patch then. It not only has unique icons for all passives (which makes it easier t

  18. Great Pretender: London Snow. After Hollywood movie mobsters and a pair of exiled princes from a middle eastern country the season finishes with the most vile mark left, an art critic. The series manages to be funny (to me at least), with the in-between steps being unpredictable but the endgame being pretty clear. I'd recommend it if you're looking for something short that doesn't require too much investment but is still fun. I think Ocarina of Time was one of the first games I played. It probably has aged terribly, but I loved it back in the day. Zelda games I haven't played are Skyward

  20. One nice auto attack build I used involves Saint Omaku's Mercy/Veilpiercer. These weapons have an upgrade that gives you a 50% chance to ignore recovery when you crit. You can stack +crit effects and accuracy to get a very high crit rate. With ranger's driving flight you'll basically attack twice, so you will have a very high chance to get to ignore recovery. I like multiclassing with devoted for this (intuitive adds hit to crit and devoted increases crit damage). Its not unreasonable to have >75% chance to crit, which would mean that you have a 60% chance to ignore recovery entirely,

  22. Some simple, but necessary things like: - a hook and line for retrieving weed and grass stems back to shore when you just didn't quite make that fancy jumping maneuver or you forgot that weed stems bounce like rubber balls when they sail down the zip line and land on a very flat, spacious rock, but still manage to land in the pond anyway. (Even evading the two story towered wall that was built as an all-purpose catcher mitt near the edge. Sigh.) -a couch.....a plump, purple couch to match the chair with the glorious option of being able to actually sit on it and enjo

  24. One thing you really should know is that the first island is going to be extremely tough on PotD. Gorecci Street and the Digsite are really going to test you. Nothing that happens after the first island is likely to be as difficult as the beginning of the game (except perhaps the megabosses).

  25. No, it was just on my mind because I'd just talked to them about it yesterday. And I utterly despise how everything about the show looks, but I am trying very hard not to hate the show for it going into it. If it was a longer show, I would have ruled it out already because I would not be able to stick with a show that looks the way Madoka does, but I can try to tolerate it for a very short show, particularly if the art style is deliberately clashing with the style of show that it actually is. Yeah, I despise achievements, and I wish I could disable achievements for all my games on Stea

  26. One reason is there's no drawback when your AC gets knocked out - because it's a summon. You won't suffer Bonded Grief and can just summon it again (for 1 Bond). Also cool: just dropping your Animal Companion behind sombody - or in places a normal AC couldn't reach easily. Drawbacks: you can't have AC + summons. Your AC has a duration and also the act of summoning costs a bit time and a bit of resources. Also your AC can get dispelled (because it's a spirit). But that rarely happens (if ever).

  27. Given how BotW is built, I would have done that anyway, because dropping a boulder on a camp of enemies is infinitely more satisfying than beating them up in straight, regular combat. With the inventory limitation that can only be eased by finding seeds (unless there's some other way later, I dropped the game relatively quickly), that combines into something that I just don't want to deal with. Where you see an incentive, I'm more cynical and see hidden gating in a world that needed none, or at least shouldn't have one. That does seem like a much more reasonable approach. I should

  29. While Clarity of Agony is nice in theory, personally I've never wanted to spend my Wounds and Recovery time that way. Its not like hostile effects last long with high Res and Mohora Wraps food (I always had this effect active from Nekataka onwards as a FF). I consider Stunning Surge kinda mandatory, since its a nice spammable Full Attack & CC. Also I like Confounding Blind for tough enemies and bosses - to further debuff enemy Deflection and get even more crits -> more Swift Flurry/Heartbeat Drumming procs. And don't forget Flagellant's Path! That's fun! Also, while Tuotilo's

  30. Ummm no. Sorry you were way off the mark on this one. Political change might be slow to come but it doesn’t take a calamitous event to get things trending in one direction or another. The calamitous event might make a for a dramatic change in a short time. But not only calamitous events result in change.

And yeah, SU could irritate sometimes because of some of its problems (and all the development issues surely didn't help...6 month hiatuses in the middle of seasons, yaaay), but a pretty remarkable show overall even with its sticklier points. @ArtistFormerlyKnownasKP @majestic

  36. Well, that's what you get, when trying to cater to the ever-so-divisive echo chambers of social media. On one hand you get what you've described, on the other hand you've get insulted as a homo/transphobic and misogynist, if you dared to say loud, that you did not enjoyed the story as much as you enjoyed the story of the first game . Just look at how many deaththreats got the developers of Kingdoms: Come from uneducated plebs, who had no clue, that Cumans are considered by today's standards as People of Colour, that the game lacked diversity...
