  • If there's one fanfic I really want to read, it's one where XC2 meets T:TGC - Rex and Pyra go through a portal and end up in Torna, with Rex able to chat with his ancestor and Pyra able to talk to her past self.
    RichardTheKing

    Pyra seeing Mikhail and Milton again would be interesting, as they're the reason she exists; how would she react to seeing them again? Or a much...more naive, Jin? How would Rex interact with Addam and Lora? Would they be able to prevent the two endgame disasters?
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    I dunno, if it's written well it could be interesting, seeing the future meet the past - especially depending on *when* Rex and Pyra go back - pre-Olethro Ruins? During the Leftheria Archipelago? After the suit change? Oh, and them "stumbling through a portal" isn't weird, thanks to the Land of Challenge; could even be the Nopon Archsage that arranges it.
    If there's one piece of "advice" I hate, it's when people suggest changing game VA to Japanese if the English VA is awful - this isn't a "better" option, since most English players don't know Japanese!

    Not only could it harm immersion, since everyone's now effectively speaking gibberish (and thus not matching subtitles), but there's plenty of dialogue that doesn't even get subtitles, such as often-important mid-battle chatter, such as ally and enemy attack exclamations.

    Sure, a lot of people might not mind this; I just don't like how easy this "advice" is thrown around, as if it solves everything vocal-related when it simply doesn't.

    So, my Mum has run out of space on her iPhone, and would like me to transfer all her photos to her laptop. What's the best way to transfer just over 33,000 photos to a Macbook Pro running 10.12 Sierra?

    If she ever plugged it into the macbook it would probably have synced automatically. But people these days hardly use computers anymore.
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    Tried iTunes syncing, Photos, and Image Capture - photos didn't appear at all, neither did any option to import/sync. Also tried backing up her phone, but it threw up a "disconnected" error near the end.
    And, well, she's not exactly fully computer-literate.
    The Real Jdbye
    The Real Jdbye
    I'm pretty sure syncing should've worked, maybe photo syncing is turned off somehow?
    A backup won't do much good since AFAIK it's encrypted and you can't get any files out of it.
    I don't find showers relaxing at all; after coming home from work, I just wanna rest, not spend time standing in a small rectangular cubicle, wasting water.

    May I interest you in a bath?

    A bath? Lying in dirty water? Naaaah. Plus need to wait for it to fill, and it uses more water than a shower.
    The Real Jdbye

    Maybe your problem is that you shower cubicle is too small. I hate shower cubicles because my elbows keep hitting the sides and I can't bend down properly to clean further below more easily. It's a bit claustrophobic.
    So how did Rhea maintain control over Garreg Mach Monastery for almost a millennium? Her then-current personas would've needed to 'die' and be 'replaced with a successor', right?
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    Thing is, not even she can be in two places at once, since Replicate is Fates-exclusive. So how'd she work around this?
    "In the event of my death, I nominate X to be my successor" "wait who's X I've never seen her before"
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    And then how she would've had to change her appearance and mannerisms somewhat to pull off being different people...sure, she could likely reuse some after enough time since people would've forgotten/died, but still.
    Unlike Princess Celestia, Rhea has to at least keep a facade of regular humanity.
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    They never did satisfactorily explain how she pulled this off...at least Seteth and Flayn are somewhat-recent arrivals, having hidden themselves prior, so they're excused.

    Comments are already incredibly easy to control, through filters and manual deletion, so using them to highlight actual problems with the video content isn't an effective means. Only the dislike count works, and that's gonna be gone soon.

    God, do I absolutely hate wisdom teeth extractions, in particular the recovery; seems to take forever to heal, and eating my favourite foods is now too painful. How much longer until the pain dissipates?

    dont think they use anesthesia anymore, so your gonna be awake through it all.
    IF THEY DO use anesthesia on you, however, then RECORD YOURSELF. leave your phone voice recording in a pocket to hear yourself. TRUST ME

    for the recovery, find a story game to marathon, and try to get as much time off as you can. Trying to do homework is pointless. just do what i did and argue with the teachers until they give in

    Thanks!
    I finished school years ago, and just recently finished all my uni subjects, so "homework" isn't an issue anymore. As for "time off"...I'll have Fri, Sat and Sun, since I was supposed to start a three-week work experience thing the Monday after.
    That party that happened last night? I was fine with most of it - but when those absolute IDIOTS started playing LOUD MUSIC outside, below my window, from midnight to almost 1 am, KEEPING ME AWAKE when they were legally supposed to SHUT UP...well, I'd say I was entitled to be pissed off.

    And trying to sleep while utterly furious is not ideal, for me, since it makes it harder to fall asleep. So yeah, did not get much sleep AT ALL due to those selfish, (probably) drunk c**ts.
    AND I TOLD MY BROTHER TO SHUT THE HELL UP VIA TEXT, MULTIPLE TIMES. Did it happen? NO. If I could, I'd ban his "friends" from the house, and I feel like punching something.

    imo you mentioned way too much about the second chapters weird path, and I know a lot of people that would find the information you gave as major spoilers.

    But not my problem anyway, thats for someone else to decide

    Also as a small extra note in case anyone gets the wrong idea, it was later explained the reason Chapter 2 took so long was because between Chapters 1 and 2 he also planned the entire rest of the game, down to plots and all dialogue. So the rest of the chapters will take significantly less time to complete.
    Ricken
    Ricken
    Hahaha, I'm gonna forget all these things by the time I'm even done with chapter 1 anyway :)
    Every chapter release gives me more hype; I'm gonna try to make Deltarune into a single magical manic episode and never forget an ounce of it, just because I know I'm gonna find so much to enjoy
    So uh no hurt from the slight slight spoilers, and I'm very excited and stuff
    and awkward. good god.
    While I do absolutely love XC2 and T:TGC, the worst thing in them is Massive Melee Mythra - ugly censored costume for Mythra, yet has THE BEST crit boost.
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    Why couldn't this shitty costume Aux Core have a similarly shitty effect?! Why does its effect have to be so great, tempting people to put it on Mythra and thus completely wreck her appearance?!
    Most of the other costume Aux Cores, gotten from the Land of Challenge, have crappy effects, so it'd make sense.
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    MMM gives a 25% critical-hit rate boost, whilst Critical Up VI (which is otherwise the best crit-rate up boost) gives 22%, and is only available, very rarely, from the Land of Challenge in XC2, and from completing Mythra's Affinity Chart in T:TGC - and MMM is available at the very start of both games.
    I still think Minecraft 1.9 was the worst update, and the "Combat Test" side-snaphots needlessly alter things OTHER than the problem itself.
    RichardTheKing

    I mean, Mojang clearly knows it's the bloody garbage "attackSpeed" attribute that's the issue, because it's conspicuously missing in Bedrock. SO GET RID OF ATTACKSPEED ALREADY!
    Or at least make it something easily toggleable, like a World Setting or game Setting (a la auto-jump).
    Phones are both the best and the worst devices people have; they allow for instant, unplanned communication, and they allow for unplanned, instant communication.

    If I may say so, I feel a little differently. It's because they are sudden and catch us unprepared that they wake us up from our daily slumber and selfishness, and force us to pay attention to the present moment and the needs of others.😉

    I'm sorry, but I just cannot feel that way; sudden verbal conversations make me slightly nervous and self-conscious, especially through the phone where I can't see the other person, and the "sudden" aspect also throws me off whatever I'm currently doing, which irritates me. It's a combination of nervousness and irritation, for me.

    I go for the middle ground. I have a house phone, no mobile phone. Suffer what comes with that and if I am out and about then nobody can get hold of me unless I check emails or something.
    Favourite Pokemon generations: 5 > 4 > 7 (i.e. just Alola) > 1 > 6 > 3 > 2. I don't count 8; never played it because it's inexcusably horrendous.
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    5's my favourite because of all the awesome extra content BW2 had, alongside having almost all of my favourite PKMN/moves/Abilities, and N's great. 4's next because it's a less-advanced 5, and still has most of my favourites. 7's third since the story and characters are pretty decently written, though Move Reminder's stupidly late (PKMN League, for whatever reason).
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    Let's Go! is simply NOT "Gen 7"; they're freaking side-games, not advancing on Alola's gameplay at all. Ew, hard pass. 1 is behind 7, simply because of how simple and relatively quick it is to finish. 6 is next; I roasted it in the PKMN Group, and I initially thought XY were the worst games in the series, but it's just tedious and mediocre and horrifically disappointing after BW2.
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    Gen 3...still the best Kanto-only games, as sad as that is, and Emerald would be a better game than ORAS if it wasn't so old. Plus, extra-strict checksum often mutates boxed PKMN into "Bad Eggs", which is quite irritating.
    Lastly, Gen 2 - why would I play it when HGSS exists? The only thing Crystal has over HGSS is Stat EXP, which I prefer over EVs.
    Replaying Pokemon X, for lack of anything better to do, and...wow, the free heals are ridiculous.
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    Not only is money plentiful in XY - Lumiose restaurants, Battle Chateau, O-Power, raised money cap compared to DS and earlier - so you should be swimming in Potions, but after the Anistar City Serena battle, she fully heals you - WHEN THERE'S A POKEMON CENTER RIGHT THERE!
    RichardTheKing
    RichardTheKing
    Not to mention the free heal given after rescuing the Power Plant. Sure, that's just before Restaurant Le Wow is available, but the others are still there. Pointless free heal.

    Just lemme use my goddamn Potions and Leppa Berries, Game Freak!
