Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:26 PM)

I was promoted last December, so this past year is my first with the company where I've been able to get whatever vacation I wanted. Instead of competing with 100 other people, there's now only 1 (out of 3 others who share my job) that's been in the building longer than me, and so has first dibs at weeks. It's pretty easy to work it out between ourselves before we give in our requests, though

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:24 PM)

But there's also departments to consider, since we have a varieity of types of machines and not everyone is qualified to run everything. Altogether, there are a lot of ways you can get screwed

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:21 PM)

So a few of the same rules, a few different ones. For regular employees, requests need to be in by January 15th. If they are, those are doled out based on seniority. You're only guaranteed 2 weeks in "prime time" (basically June, July, August). Anything submitted after January 15th is given out first come, first served based on availability

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 January 2021 - 02:39 PM)

So who said "Jumanji!"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 January 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I knew a woman at Target who was forced to use up her vacation time before she could qualify for maternity leave. Then they denied the leave because she technically hadn't been at work for two weeks beforehand.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:21 AM)

Also, if you become sick during your vacation and you turn in a doctor's sick note, it means that you don't lose your vacation days, because according to the law, vacation is intended for recreation, not for recovery from sickness or injury.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:00 AM)

Another priority is "vacation request for the next year turned in before the deadline". Like, you missed the deadline, you have to make do with what's left.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 03:59 AM)

No, they prioritize vacation during school holidays for employees with school-age children. Also, only three of the six weeks during the summer holidays per employee so a larger number of employees can get their requests fulfilled.

Fallout 76 update: it gets even better!

You know those bright, new, special NPCs they just introduced?

https://www.ign.com/...g?sf121251111=1

They're looting players corpses. Permanently stealing their items XD

 

Gee Ironbite why aren't you playing what is essentially a multiplayer mod for Fallout 4?

I've seriously not heard a single human being seriously suggest playing Fallout 76 since it was released. If someone really was trying to get you to play it at some point, they probably just hate you.


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?

In any other time period, I'd be convinced that it's too stupid to be real, it must be a giant internet hoax. But then I remember what we have for a President. Nothing seems too stupid to be real anymore.

Probably the least unlikely Sonic crossover since Sega owns both series.

What's weird to me is this:

- Puyo Puyo is a spin-off of the Madou Monogatari series

- Sega owns Puyo Puyo

- They don't own Madou Monogatari

- They also own the rights to characters from Madou Monogatari, since most of the characters are in Puyo Puyo

- The company D4 Enterprise own the rights to Madou Monogatari, but none of the characters

 

So what this means is that D4 can make a Madou Monogatari game but it can't have anything to do with any of the previous games because they don't own any of the characters, they only own the IP itself.

Copyright law is a hot mess.

 

On a side note, I tried to watch a playthrough of Waku Waku 7, a 90s fighting game that predates the Pokemon mass seizure incident and it shows. I couldn't finish the video because of how badly everything was flashing.

So I won a copy of Tropico 4 today and I'd been playing and it's fun and all but like

 

it's basically just Tropico 3 with slightly shinier graphics + improved AI

 

I mean I love Tropico 3 so I'm not really complaining but still.

The character with a Nazi-like aesthetic has a theme song called "Society"? A part of me thinks it's not a coincidence.

I honestly thought the Potemkin was a german battleship up to this point.

So I decided to buy a bond in OSRS to get myself two weeks worth of pay-to-play and here's something I don't get:

- there's a (mostly) Member's only feature called Treasure Trails. You have to get a clue scroll, which a drop from various monsters in the game, follow different clues on them to get another clue scroll until you eventually get a casket which contains a variety of items

- One of the clue types you can get are coordinate clues, which you can only get on medium, hard, elite, and master clue scrolls

- On hard clues and above, the coordinate clue might require you to go into the Wilderness, which is the sole area of the game for player killing outside of minigames and player-owned houses

- Sometimes players who are doing a hard or higher clue scroll and have to go into the Wilderness will get PKed and then they'll start bitching about griefed

 

And like, I don't get it? You're going into an area of the game specifically designed for player killing and you're saying you got griefed because someone PKed you???

 

Like, I actually had a hard Treasure Trail earlier today that did give me a coordinate clue in the Wilderness. Wanna know what I brought with me?

 

I brought a spade (which you need to dig at the coordinates), the clue scroll itself, and a dragon dagger super poison (because when you're on a hard clue scroll, you have to fight a level 65 enemy when you get a coordinate clue in the Wildy).

 

So I had three items on me.

 

Wanna know the number of items you keep by default in RuneScape if you die (to player or monster)?

 

Three.

 

I was risking absolutely zero wealth and yes, after I killed the enemy and got my next clue, I got PKed. I didn't make a fuss about 'why are you killing someone who's only here for a clue scroll!!' nor bitch about some mean PKer griefing me, I didn't do anything because, like I said, I wasn't risking anything, if I died all that'd happen is I'd respawn at my respawn location and it'd be off to do the next step in my clue scroll, and I was in an area specifically meant for player killing, I'm as much a fair target while I'm in there as someone wearing their best equipment.

 

Hell, I probably coulda thanked the dude who PKed me because it saved me a trip out of the Wilderness lol.

I think thats a universal constant in any multiplayer game. Some players will whine about other players playing as the game is intended.

I used to be super active in an online game called Star Pirates. You play a pirate. In space. You attack other players and NPCs, raid them for cargo, make your ship bigger, and get better weapons, engines, and shields so you can take on bigger targets. That is, essentially, the game, yet it was amazing how many players complained about other players playing the game exactly as designed. It was a weekly occurrence. I think some players just dont get it.

It can be addicting. Its still around, but the last time I logged in was almost 2 years ago. The community then was still pretty friendly.

It is free to play, but there are a lot of incentives to be a paid player. That said, there are ways to achieve paid status through an in-game market, so a free player can achieve most goals. It just takes longer.

so nintendo is shutting down the 'limited' eshops for 3ds and wii u that were used in most latin american and caribbean countries

 

basically all these did was allow you to redeem game codes, redownload games, and download updates

 

but like with them shutting down in a few months, nintendo has confirmed that you will NOT be able to redownload games if you delete them nor download updates

 

lmao the digital future amirite

 

(also bizarrely one of the places affected by this will be the us virgin islands, which i don't get, why wouldn't the virgin islands just use the united states eshop??? for that matter, so is french guiana and why wouldn't that just use the french eshop???)

Geez that's messed up. The ability to redownload things is one of the conditions on which we've all accepted the dystopian reality of having platform maintainers curate our own collections of purchased software. Pick a lane or go back to CDs, assholes.
