  • Any Olympic Athlete that disparages their government for any reason needs to be kicked out of the Games immediately and sent home. (cont)

    I didn't dig into the stories, but more saw that and just had to eyeroll at that for a second.

    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.
    So I made the mistake of checking the Steam Discussions for Secret of Mana... *sigh*

    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.

    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!
    Ooo. Saw the preview of an $80 art commission. Sadly can't show it on TCF... well might be able to crop it to her face only.

    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.

    But yet it takes increasingly more hardware to achieve it. Going from 80FPS up to 140+ FPS is a pretty significant strain on the hardware.

    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.
    Xylia

    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.

    You're right about everything of course -- not some, but ALL mandatory software updates as the bane of my existence.. Although (and I know I'm VERY late to this) on most of these programs and OS's you can fully disable updates, and all your headaches will be gone.

    I still use old un-updated Firefox 25 for some things. And I've fully disabled updates on Windows 10 -- yes it IS possible after taking extensive measures (among disabling about half of the damn OS's functionality, nearly all its bloat, and spyware), and it runs like a dream.
    [BoF1] Gotta love it when developers do an oops and let you have endgame armor a 3rd of the way through the game lol.

    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.
