      So it's been 7 months since Pipeworks took over T:OW... kinda curious of anything ever came of that. I'm not expecting a release date (cont)

        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.

        now, it IS annoying that the only way to shut down Win7 without installing updates is to tell it to restart and then power off the computer when it goes to reboot (while it is doing the POST routine, before it starts loading Windows). But that's a meh issue.

        Basically long story short, there's a series of locked doors in an early-game dungeon, but once you get the thief you can open them. There's no real reason to come here until way later in the game, and at the very top of the tower there are two statues. (cont)

        Checking each statue will reward you with a very powerful item -- 2nd best armor for the hero, and a very powerful weapon for the thief. Said statues give no indication that they give items when checked, though, so you kinda have to just know they're there. But if you do know, these two items are quite OP for that part of the game.

        "Passing on the pain to others" is very similar to "it's not just about you, it's also about everybody else around you", because it's talking about the people that are affected by the victim's suicide.
        You never said it, but it's kind of implied that it detracts from the person who is having the problems in the first place.

        I'm inclined to agree with Krasunir. It is exactly about the person committing suicide, and trying to prevent people from ending their own suffering (which for them is so bad it warrants death) through arguments like "think of other people" is exactly the wrong angle to tackle such a situation: very bluntly put, it's nothing more than emotional blackmail.

        Apologies if I sound heated, but saying the wrong things to a suicidal person is actually counterproductive, whatever your intentions may be. I definitely agree with you about contacting helplines (because those people are trained professionals), but if you truly want to help, then listening is far, far more important than saying your bit.

        Well, I do enjoy the info I get from most of the accessories, though I don't care about DPS or current Speed usually... I usually watch the moonphase to know when to plan picking my deathweed (because I oftentimes forget to check) and knowing when to set a night aside to farm for Moon Charm until I get one. (cont)

        Weather, I need to know when to stop what I'm doing for Rain if I want frost wings or nimbus rod in a playthrough, so that's rather useful, and the fishing power... well depends on whether or not I took time to set up fishing pools pre-hardmode or not lol. but still... it consolidates everything down into one item, and the extra inventory space is always incredibly valuable.

        Yeah I could get a money trough or carry a piggybank around on me, but I hate having to shuffle items around constantly when I'm picking them up and again when I get back to town. It's annoying and its tedious.

        Assuming you're in the USA, if you swerve left, you're heading into oncoming traffic and you and the guy you're trying to avoid are going to smash noses together. If you swerve right, you can try to go offroad, or if you also slam on your breaks and go hard-right, you could try to make an impromptu turn-off onto the road he came out of. (cont)

        Well, see, thing is... what does a PS4 (or even the "pro") go for again? $300? 400? Something like that? I built a $500 computer that is stronger than the 5 year old computer that is stronger than said PS4. So, when you drop that kind of money on a PS4... you are getting vastly inferior and wholly obsolete hardware, it's actually a ripoff.

        Could never understand why Spoony Bard became a meme, but yet this didn't (or at least nowhere near as famous) because both are incredibly corny lines. I get they had to censor death, and they couldn't have him say "I'll kill you all" but surely "I'll defeat you all" would have worked?
