    If anybody is ever thinking about suicide... please, don't. Boss's daughter killed herself on Sat (just found out today) (cont)

    "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.
    So, started a playthrough after a long hiatus... and now I'm reminded of one of my biggest beefs against the game:

    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.
    Xylia

    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.
    Protip: If someone pulls out in front of you coming from your right, swerve RIGHT, not LEFT. (cont)

    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)

    Meh, I usually set them to stay away, and defend... and just solo'd the whole game myself other than telling the other two to cast spells occasionally. *shrug* But at least the AI for the dog in Evermore was better.

    I normally average 5-6 hours per day and I'm usually OK with that, but tonight and 2 nights ago, I laid in bed staring at the ceiling or the clock until like 3AM and I had absolutely no urge to sleep at all and easily got through the day without it 'cept with a minor headache that was easily gotten rid of.

    Didn't take any extra caffeine and only had like a 1-hour "nap" (didn't fall asleep) yesterday. Went to bed early (11PM) slept for like 2 hours... woke up around 1:30 in the morning and waited until 2:30+ and said 'screw it' and got back on the computer lol.

    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.
    Xylia

    Nearly as bad of a ripoff as Macs (you can buy a comparable PC for half the price).

    It might seem harsh and draconic... but then, it is meant to be. Sometimes, an example needs to be made to get people to stop acting like this. TCF should not be toxic like that.

    But then, I feel I should elaborate some personal background: I used to visit MMO-Champion forums.... which are a slimepit of toxicity nearly as bad as LoL. I don't want to see THAT kind of BS here. It's refreshing to see the moderators are willing to lay down the hammer to hinder that kind of vile disgusting growth here.

    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?
    Gah! The anticipation is killing me lol. Commissioned a very good artist, very nice price ($20) too. Waiting to hear back from them.

    Yeah, I found this one artist a long time ago and I really liked his art... well apparently this guy's wife also does great art and I've never seen her gallery and she's the one offering great prices because she needs to pay some bills lol. He reposted her journal on his site and that's how I found it.

    Well, for one, it was the first open exploration game, it was one of the first games to have a title screen, if not the first. It had a beginning and an end (which most games at the time did not), and the "bugs" it has are easily fixed with a few hex edits. The guy who made the game was under ludicrous time constraints so give them a break lol.
    Kazzymodus
    Kazzymodus
    Title screens date as far back as coin-op arcade machines, and open exploration and linear gameplay were already used by Adventure back in 1979.

    I'm aware the developer had only five weeks to create the game, and given the circumstances, he did reasonably well, but that doesn't justify how bad it was, which Atari learned the hard way. If anything, it exemplified everything wrong with the game industry at the time.
    Xylia
    Xylia
    Well, my main point is that it did several things that, okay, fine, *few* games did. Still. Once you fix the worst bugs in the game, it is actually a very reasonable game. Much better than before.
    Yaaay! I just cleared my very first raid in an MMO that wasn't a tourist/easymode version and it was actually relevant/current content!
    So the SNES Mini was announced and hey. They somehow managed to do a worse job than they did with the NES! lol. (cont)

    Especially not when these games are already developed and done, and have already been sold multiple times... and it takes very little work to make them available for new systems... why do they feel they should get $20 for almost no work put in? What they didn't make enough money the first several times they sold it?

    Unless it depends on location I remember RBY was 10$ and at least for me was worth getting since you can transfer pokemon from that game to gen 7 which was something impossible to do past gen 3.
    Xylia
    Xylia
    I should have clarified, I meant the GBA remasters of the Gen1s. And I think that $10 for a GBA game is still a bit steep, especially digital download. An actual physical cart, sure. There's materials involved in making that. And if I looked hard enough I bet I could find a cart of that for $10 or similar.
    Is it just me, or are Steam Sales pretty lackluster? Sad when 75% of the games shown on front page are not even on sale.

    If you look at any store page for a game, it will say the price is good until July 5. So, Terraria is at 50% the entire sale, won't change.

    FFXIV Stormblood is only 6.1GB. Huh. Smaller than expected. I'll have half of that downloaded before I leave for my 2nd shift at work today.
