Xylia

Terrarian, 37

Been playing the Secret of Mana remake for most of the day. Other than two minor issues I encountered, it's a rather solid release. (cont) Feb 16, 2018

        Xy's got records on the unpleasant experiences at CHF that one can experience. You won't get 'em a whole lot here, rest assured.

        The Chucklefish forums is probably one of the greatest forums websites I've found. The community is simply amazing (despite not being the most active. Still is more active than these forums though). Although, it does has some horrible rules and some pretty weird mods. Honestly, it has its problems, but is worth it

        A lot of people whine endlessly about how much of a "ripoff" it is, but meh. I like it. I don't regret buying it whatsoever. I'd have to give it a solid 8 out of 10, maybe 8.5 because man, they really made battle and movement a lot smoother.

        So I went there today, and there's only 2 cashier lanes open, and 4-5 people standing in a line behind each. There are no less than 8 "Scan&Go" lanes open, but there were only 1-2 people there and employees wearing yellow standing there at them waiting for people to come.

        It was rather hilarious and sad both to see the Scan&Go employees standing around doing absolutely jack all while the two real cashiers had constant 4-5 person lines, people waiting 15+ minutes to get through the checkouts.

        So being an Olympian means you have to support the leader? That's pretty un-American if you ask me. The whole government is based around checks and balances to make sure it isn't a supreme leader.

        The Olympics are about athletes representing their nations (which includes their leaders!) setting aside political grudges and such, and just competing in games. When you wear your nation's colors, you are representing your nation (and its leader). If you can't stand for your government... then don't go to the games, plain and simple.

        And that "It's a cheap phone game! I shouldn't have to pay $40 for it! Waaaaaah!!!" Seriously, they are taking a FULL LENGTH JRPG and redoing it from the ground up, with new art, new sounds, music, and even Voice Acting. For a Full. Length. Game.

        Well, whoever does should look into it at least somewhat -- speeds that low should not be happening unless something is drastically wrong. It could be something as simple as the networking equipment needing a simple restart.

        You're basically getting half of the speed dialup (the slowest kind of internet) gets. And unless you are on dialup (do you have to actually dial when you connect to the internet?), these speeds are a small fraction of what you should have.

        Global warming isn't the correct term because that's not what it is. It's raising the temperatures in some places, but in others, it's making it colder.

        Our oven blew its main heating element last night. This morning, dad calls the local appliance fixit to see if they have any replacements for that model of oven, and we were quoted at "$30 and up". Eh, I can order it from Amazon for $15-20. I can understand a markup, but 80-100% markup is out of this world ridiculous. No wonder these places can't stay alive.

        they need to raise prices because they don't get nearly as many customers, so they have to increase costs to actually make a profit, but they get fewer sales due to higher prices.

      Star Wars: Battlefront II (2005) is $3.39 on Steam. It's probably better than EA's $60 version!

        I don't think anybody really knows what the actual rate that human eyes can process. I don't think there's really a hard "limit", as it varies by person. That's why I usually just use the "Diminishing Returns" term, that as you get up past a certain point (60-80), you get less benefit the higher you go.

        Dude if they put a GameCube/GameBoy emulator on the Switch they are going to be swimming in so much cash they might just drown. However, who knows. There might be trademark issues on how that sort of stuff may work in Japan or not, but that's just a theory.

        Welp, either way, either they release it and let us pay for it, or we'll emulate it. Nintendo is very outspoken against emulation, but their answer to that is to have you buy the same game over and over and over again for each console they release.

        Uh, no thanks. It doesn't work like that, not when the free option exists. I'll pay if it is reasonable to do so. Re-buying the same content for each new console is not reasonable. They could easily set up E-Shop so that it remembers what you've bought and what you haven't, but they choose not to.
