@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 May 2020 - 06:19 AM)

If your primary is getting cleaned up anyway cause you were backing stuff up, then yeah, no reason not to. But largely, it's not a necessary step.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 AM)

It's like you find out that there's a fire going to break out in the house you live in soon, so you find a new place, get your entire Transformers collection into safe storage, and now all that's left are the empty cabinets which you intend to move over to your new place soon. If the fire breaks out before then, sure, you'd need to get new cabinets, but your toys are already out of the danger zone.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:27 AM)

At this point, I'm in a "if the old system crashed before the new drive arrives, it will be slightly annoying, not a complete disaster" mood.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I've mostly just backed up my personal files and stuff on the external hard drive. The existing Windows installment is supposed to be directly cloned to the new drive once it arrives.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 May 2020 - 01:44 AM)

Who else has ever been so out of it that you've gotten into the shower with your glasses on?

@  Echowarrior : (20 May 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Nope. We've been forced to go with Eclipse. It sucks, and I will continue to call the people in charge of the website fascists until they give me reason to do otherwise.

@  CORVUS : (20 May 2020 - 10:20 PM)

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the new layout either. Fortunately you can stay with the old one though.

@  Liege : (20 May 2020 - 08:57 PM)

So now it matches 90% of the content.

@  Trpodeca : (20 May 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Wow the new Deviantart layout is terrible.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 May 2020 - 10:39 AM)

Are you referring to cloning your drive to install into your computer as the replacement, or are you creating an image to restore from should something unforseen occur?

The downside of ranked is that if you don't win, you don't get exp at all. I was having some bad runs, so I just went back to regular battles.

Yeah, that's the big problem. I got out of C- and stopped because I was too nervous I'd be knocked back into the low rank. I'll probably pick it back up at some point.

 

New map is huge, pretty fun but I need to learn all the hidey places. I keep getting caught out in the narrower paths.

I would love a new form of ranked battles that could use the friends list. Even if it had a completely different rank.

It'd be nice, I have to hope we may get something like that eventually. Or on the sequel.

 

In Splatoony related news it opened with 2 days on this month's NPD at #5.

 

Really not bad for a new, exclusive IP on a underperforming system!

 

In personal news I finally had someone in my lobby with one of the harder to find Ninja squid shirts - so can't wait for Spyke to find that gear for me tonight. I'm tired of wearing the Squidforce t-shirt.

New weapon out tonight!

Nintendo has been VERY on point with constant updates.

I rather like it, Inkspray comparable to the Splattershot JR, and the Sepecial is Bombrush suction bombs, I think I'll add it to my Mains.

WHAT A MATCH!

 

Picture it! I was playing Splat Zone on Arrowana Mall. I was on the top scaffolding overlooking the splat Zone on our side, when suddenly I spy some enemies running towards me from the opposite end, Three of them, I'm all alone, If I keep fiering at the splat Zone they'll overtake me, If I jump to hide within the splat zone they'll overwhelm me with the high ground and gain control.

So I Charge straight at them along the metal grating Ink blazing! And SPLAT! SPLAT SPLAT! THREE IN ONE BLOW!

 

My team wound up losing that match, But those three soon won't forget the day they crossed paths with an inkling named "Mii Dave"!

3 at the same time?!

I've also now experienced both a .1% victory and loss. So much stress.

Splat Zones Blackbelly Skatepark needs to be reworked, as it causes me so much distress, The zones are too close to each other and the spawns. 

 

 

Finally made it to B- tho. Just needed 2 more points and the enemy team on the last match only had 3 players, a gift from the Squid Kid Gods.

I should really try ranked again soon. I've been avoiding it as I usually don't care for the competitive side of games like this.

 

That and I main brush, and don't really want to jump over to one of the .gals to work in Splat Zones.

Ranked can really turn some stages on their heads. I absolutely hate Port Mackerel in Turf War but I loved playing it on ranked to my great surprise. I won't even play turf war at all when PM is in the rotation

I wear my Zekko Hoodie for it's Ninja stealth ability, I wear the off trail boots for it's Bomb Sniffing functionality, and I wear my Squidvader hat because... well... that one is just a fashion statement.

Love bomb sniffing. Though I had to drop those to get some swim speed back up with the black sea horses since I'm wearing a ninja squid shirt.

Sigh...my Amiibo shipped out on the 4th and it's still not here. Teach me for using cheap shipping, I guess. I can't even send in a late complaint to Amazon until the 25th :burn

 

 

 

Ooh, I just pulled off the out-of-bounds glitch in the hub. Yay! Time to explore!

 

Edit again: Just got out of a match where the entire other team disconnected. We had everything but their spawn point covered. Oy..

Just announced via Nintendo's Japanese twitter, Splatoon has surpassed 1 million sales worldwide! Great to see a successful new IP from Nintendo.
