Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (15 February 2021 - 04:07 PM)

Then we got Ultra Magnus, Fortress Maximus, Dai Atlas, Megatron, Galvatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Banzai-Tron in Alternity...

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2021 - 12:03 PM)

They got that rescue bot grimlock that turns into a motorcycle. That's... pretty neat...

@  Otaku : (15 February 2021 - 11:35 AM)

Just to make Grimlock feel more "wrong", they even highlight how his character just seems ill-suited for a sports car alternate mode in his own backstory.  Hindsight is 20/20, so I now wish they'd made a T-rex that transformed into a sportscar.  Still probably would have been as much or more of a pain to transform, but at least it'd feel more like Grimlock. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Some Alternators were fine, then you have Grimlock/Wheeljack, with three transformers worth of fiddly and a giant buttflap.

@  Telly : (13 February 2021 - 01:49 AM)

thats the main reason i got rid of my alternators. too much of a pain to transform

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:13 AM)

Didn't use a hammer, but feeling a little less sentimental.

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:12 AM)

(The video I found to get some hints had alcohol and a hammer, and by the time I was done, I understood why.)

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:11 AM)

I posted something about feeling all sentimental when I transformed alternators Smokescreen a few days ago...and tonight I tried transforming Grimlock.

You know how Tony Stark can control Ironman suits remotely?

It's kind of like that.

Only they're (mostly) techno-organic clones of dead soldiers and it's infinity years in the future and there's hyper advanced fantasy tech.

Okay, that explains why the designs are so wildly different.

Easy, he's not technically alive, having replaced most of his body with robotic parts, otherwise he'd have died when each of his machines exploded with him in them.

Yeah. The Operator isn't physically inside the frame. There was a human who became the original of each individual warframe, but the frames are cybernetic doctorings of flesh infected with a controlled strain of a living metal mutant collective thing. So they're kind of like remote controlled Eva.


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?

I had to do 15. I got refunded when the requirements were dropped, which was great, because I had so many uses for 10 argon crystals before they went bad in a day. (I did not.)

So, y'all hear about the Cooking Mama: Cookstar drama?

 

Game was announced last August, reported to use blockchain for DRM purposes.

 

Game ostensibly came out on 31 March for both Switch and PS4 (there's debate if the PS4 version even came out, but it was advertised) but only a few people found retail copies and the game was pulled from the Switch eshop shortly after release. Soon after there were rumors that the game used blockchain to mine cryptocurrency (considered to be not likely)

 

But NOW the original developers and IP owners of Cooking Mama are reporting that the game was completely unauthorized because they terminated their contract with the publisher due to their blatant breaking of their license agreement on 30 March (the biggest breaking being that they never licensed the publisher to release any Cooking Mama games for the PS4, with other things being the low quality of the game itself and the company not fixing any of the problems the actual IP owners pointed out, despite it being contractually required of them, they just released the game without changes).

 

It's hugging wild that a company seriously thinks they could just release a game without the license lmao.

Poked around Target, they're having a buy 2 get 1 on select games that ends today. There's a Cooking Mama Cookstar game for the Switch? Huh. We're not supposed to touch the displays, so let's look it up online.
Looks like this game isn't supposed to be out or something? I'm tempted to get it just to see what's wrong with it.
But, there wasn't anything else on the sale that looked interesting, and the few people who have gotten it say it's just a bad game. For shame, Mama. For shame.

Weeeeeeell, there's really no way to play Railjack solo, so you're going to want to switch to public, then go to the console in the centerish of the bridge, which is not the hole in the back of the bridge or the control harness at the front of the bridge, to bring up a navigation menu and pick a mission in Earth Proxima, preferably one of the lowest level ones. And then you play the same damn mission over and over again, a space Exterminate with a warframe Sabotage segment inside an enemy asteroid base or ship, getting resources and fixable parts and space mods and space endo to upgrade your railjack and make it not die quite so often. In the process you'll also gain Intrinsic Skill points based on your affinity (XP) gained, which can be spent to progress along one of four skill progressions. I'd go for Engineering 1, Gunnery 2, Tactical 4 as a first set of goals, because those are some of the most necessary skills on offer for a total of 18 points, but since you're hosting with your own railjack, you'll probably end up flying it and might want the first couple of ranks of Piloting even before those. 

 

Of course, you can also join random public missions from your orbiter just by setting to public and clicking the railjack in the upper right corner, such that someone else will be bringing their ship instead. You'll have the same opportunity to progress in all of the same ways, but you won't have to use your own potato ship, you won't have to fly the ship, and you won't actually need anything except the Intrinsics points since all of the resources in railjack are for upgrading your own railjack. 

 

Within the mission, you'll mostly be either flying the ship, attempting to kill enemy fighters either from one of the gunnery stations (don't bother until you have Rank 2 Gunnery) or from archwing (which is honestly the better bet if you have a decently built up archgun unless the railjack has very, very good weapons, but building archguns for railjack is weird too so look into that), killing crew ships by boarding them generally using archwing and destroying their reactors, fighting off boarding parties on the railjack and putting out fires, patching leaks, etc. with the Omni tool in your gear wheel, or doing some basic Sabotage mission stuff within an enemy installation. If you're host, you'll probably be flying the ship from objective to objective and trying not to die while shooting some things, and since you start out with a slow ship and terrible weapons, it'll feel even worse than it does once you have the best possible ship and weapons, which is still godawful. 

 

If you'd rather play solo, you'll have to wait until DE releases the Command intrinsics progression, at an unspecified future date.
