Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s Best Buy exclusive deluxe version is available for $10 as one of today’s daily deals

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 October 2020 - 08:50 PM)

We can play the "Is it a real headline or an Onion headline" game.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 October 2020 - 08:22 PM)

It's weird to see how much of Larry Hama's "satire" from the old GI Joe comic has no longer become satire in the past few years.

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 October 2020 - 11:29 AM)

Funny how 2020 gave me new appreciation for Dawn of the Dead 1978.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 07:43 PM)

@Fenix Twilight Sure. Just not a good one.

@  Fenix Twilight : (25 October 2020 - 04:02 PM)

@Sukoshiko Well his clothes left an impression on you didn't they?

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 October 2020 - 06:09 AM)

I just read "Tesla Cybertruck" like AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", now it won't get out of my head, so I inflict it on all of you as well.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Tesla Cybertruck: amazing or just silly looking? I can't decide.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:24 AM)

Weird question: I had to deal with a guy today... I'm not exactly up on modern fashions... or even archaic fashions... But this guy... Tuxedo Jacket and shirt, studs in all the button holes except the bottom one, blue jeans, and cowboy boots... Take a moment to imagine that get up. And this was to a business meeting, trying to impress someone. What look is that? Who on earth would dress that way? (I mean on purpose)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:04 PM)

I think the few up here were lost to bad placement, poor weather, and the usual language trap.

@  TM2-Megatron : (24 October 2020 - 04:25 PM)

There are 5 spread around southwestern Ontario, all run by the same company. I've only been to the one in my area, but it seems to do good business even in non-pandemic times. On long weekends, when they do triple features, there's a normally a lineup to get in Friday and Saturday nights

@  Telly : (24 October 2020 - 01:51 PM)

there been one outside of my town for as long as ive been alive at least. its gone through its share of owners and periods of being closed down, but its been open for the past decade at least

@  Otaku : (24 October 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Bias from personal experience, but drive-in theaters are nearly extinct.  I grew up near one but it went out of business in the late 80s, and was torn down and replaced with some other business by the early 90s.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Out here, I mean. Couldn't comment on their popularity in place where they actually exist.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:44 AM)

I wouldn't know. They've only come back into vogue with the social distancing from the plague, and while some places have made an effort to shoestring the places together, it's all largely too distant to be accessible.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:13 AM)

The original Back To The Future is showing in the Odeon in the UK now. I think I will go see it tomorrow.

@  Donocropolis : (23 October 2020 - 05:51 AM)

It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

@  Kalidor : (22 October 2020 - 06:43 PM)

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 12:13 PM)

But yeah, reading it: I came off as a bit of an ass.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:52 AM)

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:36 AM)

Be a hoot if these Studio Series 86 toys led to Transformers The Move Reanimated like Pokemon Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

@  Paladin : (20 October 2020 - 05:15 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 October 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Seems the area near my work place is due to be gentrified. Electric car ports, fifty pound haircuts and five pound bowls of cereal in breakfast cafes I'll bet.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 11:31 PM)

@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

@  wonko the sane? : (19 October 2020 - 08:26 PM)

Sounds like they need to clean more often.

Starting to get the picture that the biggest problem with Warframe is a community of top-level overpowered gods whinging that every new addition doesn't make them even more overpowered.

Like there are legit complaints to be had, but 'doesn't one-shot enemies above level 50' seems pretty silly.

I tend to work on the assumption that I'm building and loading out for level 100 or so, and I'm not likely to actively choose to use something that's significantly less effective than an alternative and effectively just draw things out needlessly for myself. (I mean, actively building for lower levels would just mean cheesing them even faster, so I guess I am drawing those out in theory.) So there are quite a lot of weapons that I'm unlikely to touch simply because they're well below what passes for a vague sense of a power curve. But if every weapon is top tier, or every frame is top tier for every situation, then none of them are. 

 

So like, I was less bothered by the Basmu being kinda not very good at all than I would have been bothered by it being another Shedu. When something falls roughly on the amorphous blob that could be compared to a power curve in normal games, it's more likely to make the game more interesting, while something that falls well below it doesn't factor at all and something that falls well above it makes it less interesting. 

 

When it's frame abilities and augments, though, I feel it's a little different. I really think every frame ought ideally to be playable even in endgame level content. Since the thing that balloons the most wildly as you go up the level progression - marginally less so with the armor change, but still much more than any other factor - is enemy effective health, any ability with a primary purpose of dealing damage has to have some clever way of scaling into the absurdly high numbers that entails, or it's just a dead feature of that frame past a particular level. In the vast majority of cases, it's that second one and direct damage-dealing abilities just kinda stop working once you're far enough in.

 

The easy solution to that problem would be to, you know, stop giving frames abilities that are just attacks, but even frames that are both good and recent like Wisp waste ability spots on them. And abilities generally get one augment at most, so an augment can become a wasted spot too. 

 

Basically, I think there really are quite a lot of things that get tossed in with a little less care toward balance than would be preferable, and a lot of the people likely to be concerned about any given particular are going to be experiencing the game largely in that level 80-110 range. Something that's just plain inefficient to use against level 50 enemies or something is just not in the game that I'm playing, so - I mean, if it's cool, ideally, I'd like it to be in my game too, preferably. 

 

But after spending a significant amount of time on the forums, I just generally got the sense that the Warframe community has a some issues with being composed entirely of foul tempered and demanding idiots, so there's that

Goddamn I love that skin. Makes me regret ditching Nova.

I suppose I should mention that my above post was prompted by the Tactical Potato video that had just popped up on my feed with a title like, "Glassmaker Reward Dishappointing" in which he complained that the Rumbled mod couldn't kill anything over level 50.

The frustration to me is more the fact that this is the first thing I heard fans talk about Glassmaker and it's someone moaning that a mod wasn't buffed enough. Could be a legit complaint, but it's so incredibly typical of the community.

Gotcha. Eh, well, I mean, he's not wrong. It's not his first video on Glassmaker, but it's his first video on Glassmaker now that it's live, and his first video on a Glassmaker reward. Considering that the initial mystery scene was shown off in advance and the rewards and credit system all works the same as the last Nightwave, and he does videos on every new weapon or mod in the game as soon as he can, it's not surprising it'd be the next thing he'd hit.
 
Tactical Potato's a pretty level guy and the only Warframe partner I watch other than Shy, who just does gag videos. Potato is almost purely good for unboxing videos of new gear and to a lesser extent other content - I don't expect deep insights, but it lets me see new weapons and cetera in action and generally in use with a decent build and in relevant content. 
 
So, to the mod itself. Admittedly don't play Atlas, but Rumbled is definitely DoA. It's possible Potato overlooked the more concise assessment, that mods balanced for Conclave are from a completely different game with smaller numbers, and without adjustment, they're never going to make sense in PvE. But we're talking about a maintained ability that makes you unable to jump or shoot, soooo. (Which is typical of Conclave mods - they tend to be lateral moves. That means they can't mix with PvE, where a mod slot is a big opportunity cost.) When I watched the video, I did have a good giggle at the end when Potato came to the slightly raised pipe to walk into the next area and just sort of waggled side to side as if Atlas, who we the viewers knew couldn't jump, was nonetheless trying really hard.
 
The one thing Rumbled does that might be nice is that it is a second augment in PvE for a particular ability, and if the "only one augment per ability" rule is no longer a thing, there's the potential for other frames to get interesting options down the line. 
 
Warframe players get upset about everything, including stupid things, like the recent explosion of stupid when Khora lost the ability to heal inanimate objects. There's also a list of things I'd like to see nerfed so they're not embarrassing to use. But I personally lost my shit when they nerfed Wukong's Cloud Walker, which in retrospect wasn't a terrible change in a vacuum even if it meant that particular frame was no longer filling the role I wanted him for. 
 
And the fact that DE is moving ahead with Glassmaker and keeping to targets under the lockdown is an incredible and laudable thing, and I'd understand if content was incomplete or a little limited under the circumstances, with everything happening remotely and no new mocap and so on. I can't really complain under the circumstances about much of anything. But yeah, it is still a true statement that making this mod available in PvE without any changes doesn't add anything to the game. It's Elytron tier. If it was new content I'd be a bit annoyed, because development time that goes into something that's going to be DoA is a pretty unfortunate waste, right? But it's not new, and no effort was staked or lost, it's just a possible missed opportunity.

in conclusion,  Space Ninja gun go Pew Pew. 

There are some things in Warframe that are well designed though. I think your general caveman noises there are a really needlessly negative and dismissive perspective, which makes me feel a bit defensive on the part of DE. Warframe is a casual, unbalanced, F2P grinding game, but it has a lot of clever bits in and can be a lot of fun. There's a lot of good design in it. 

 

Anyway, now that I look, the mod isn't actually a Glassmaker reward, it just gained the ability to be used in PvE in the same update. So this is exactly the afterthought it appears to be: if you happen to be one of the three people playing Conclave such that you have access to this mod, and you want to use it in PvE, you can, if you really just want to do that for some reason. And that's entirely fine. The usual problem with dead mods being traps for new or uninformed players doesn't really apply here, because it's not taking the place of any PvE reward anyway. (And it's not as if, if the mod had been goodwe'd all be rushing out to play Conclave to get it. If it did have a useful application in PvE, it'd also need a spot to drop there, because Conclave is already one big dead mod and trap regardless.)

my as you put it caveman noises were in repose in how most online content creators complain waaaaaaay to much about minor inconveniences in this game.  i think DE is a great online game ocmpany and the only one i dont feel bad about giving real money.  im sorry if that came off  offensive.

Sorry for being needlessly nasty about it. I just know how bad the Warframe community can get about some of these things, while also thinking there's some space for thoughtfully considering some of the design decisions at work and recognizing where things aren't quite adding up, because there are certainly always a few spots where that's the case. (A lot of which there are still reasons for - the unattended state of archwing and poor Itzal and her placeholder 1 look really bad, but I know that in that case, they're not investing short-term fixes into something that they're at least intending to completely overhaul in a few months. If that overhaul happens and Itzal still has Valkyr's 1, I'll probably have something to say about that too.) Again, I just think there's quite a bit of space between "this decision isn't really up to the design standards set by other content" and ... whatever it is people are thinking when they just get angry that their favorite gun's riven disposition got nerfed or whatnot. 

 

So I wasn't bothered by the Tactical Potato video, but I think maybe the context both he and I were missing - and I'm going to say that maybe falls on him a bit more as a guy who had acquired the mod and did a video about it - is that this really wasn't an effort to add a Conclave mod into PvE, so much as it was a choice to remove the restriction that prevented people who already had it for Conclave from equipping it in normal content. (Which is entirely fine, why not?) If it had been added to PvE as a reward and seemed to intend to be a part of the normal game mode, the "yay, another dead mod" reaction would apply and I'd think of it as a less good decision, but.

 

Edit: And I guess again if that seems overly negative in focus, either of you tried the Simulor lately yet? It got a massive rebalance recently and is now exactly as weird and wacky as it was before, but also comparable in damage output to other normal rifles, and it's very fun. I'm also using it with Mag thanks to Magnetize's projectile weirdness, which works obscenely well....

Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

It's kind of useless right now since the site is (understandably) getting hammered, but for anyone who hasn't got it yet, Grand Theft Auto V is free (to keep) on the Epic Games Store until next Thursday.

 

I'm gonna get it myself once the damn site stops getting hammered.

Goddamn I love that skin. Makes me regret ditching Nova.

On this note, by the way, Nova's really become a comfy main for me. Saryn, Mesa, and Khora are all capable of being so ridonk that in most content I feel like they're playing the game for me. Nezha is really good for tanking ability and for how his 1 and 2 interact with melee, so he's still going to be my pick for bosses and highest level content, but he's just not quite as fun.

 

I used the Scarlet Spear event to finally get myself a set of Arcane Guardian, which along with the enemy accuracy changes in Revised, makes me have to invest less of my build in survivability, which in turn means Nova doesn't have to be built quite so obsessively for duration, and I'll swap her Umbral Intensify in and out depending on whether I need serious CC; otherwise she's just a good collection of fun if not particularly impressive abilities, able to get around quickly and offer a couple of force multipliers for damage dealing. Escape Velocity isn't a very good speed buff ability, but it's an entirely decent one and enough to justify the cost of the portals themselves even at my crippled ability range, and they can be a really fun little maneuver in a lot of contexts, so that works out.

 

I think Wisp right now has my favorite gameplay overall, and Gauss is both very fun and very cute, but Nova's just perfectly my aesthetic and also can be really fun to play. 

 

Oh, and there's also Mag. She's never the practical choice outside of a hijack but I just love those little headphones. And the new shield gating gave her something at least. = ] Somehow she ends up in my top three or four for recent use.
