ALso him messing around with the wait staff is adorable.

That's why I prefer wasting my time on the Kitchen Nightmares channel to the Hell's Kitchen one. He actually talks about the food there rather than increasingly colorful insults.

They know their audience; people looking for videos of Gordon Ramsay being censor-bleeped every five seconds.

@  unluckiness : (26 March 2019 - 12:13 AM)

Gordon Ramsay likes the food compilation - 6 minutes. Gordon Ramsay hates on the food video - 1 hour. I love whoever manages his Youtube channel.

@  Benbot : (25 March 2019 - 06:31 PM)

I'm big into Nerf. The blasters they make today are 1000 times more advanced than anything we had when growing up. There's a thriving modding community too.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 March 2019 - 01:29 PM)

Eh... they're okay. But unless you routinely end up with people who also own/use them (like in college, or an office where the boss buggers off for hours at a time.) they usually just end up sitting around gathering dust because without someone to shoot and shoot back: they quickly get old.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 March 2019 - 01:27 PM)

Hmm. I don't think I have ever owned a Nerf gun in my life despite knowing of them for my entire life and liking the TV adverts.

@  Ashley : (24 March 2019 - 11:08 PM)

a stupid discovery while looking at some nerf guns: they make toilet paper blasters. it's basically an automatic spitball launcher, with a little water tank and a reel for you to put the toilet paper on.

Many of us are in fact aware that our country is ridiculous.

@  Arazyr : (24 March 2019 - 08:25 AM)

As an American, I have no problem with the amusing anecdotes he's been sharing. In fact, I've been enjoying them, and got no indication of smugness from any of them. Please continue. 8^)

@  fourteenwings : (24 March 2019 - 02:15 AM)

I don't think it's right to feel indignation at people telling you that Americans might also have feelings and you should consider them before squawking yet more things in the same vein.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 March 2019 - 01:28 AM)

Intervening? It's not like much of anything that happens in this box is prompted.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 March 2019 - 01:13 AM)

I suppose I would normally feel indignation right about now, but with you I am merely unsurprised that you are intervening in a conversation to express your typical brand of disapproval.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 March 2019 - 12:50 AM)

I'm not super fond of Nevermore's habit of using the Shoutbox to complain about TFW users, but those usually seem to be things he's personally witnessed and not anecdotes that he only has confirmation bias to backup, so I can believe he isn't just being smug.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 March 2019 - 12:47 AM)

Amusing? Don't try to pretend you aren't being selective by picking things that support a narrative you're building.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 March 2019 - 12:46 AM)

Shield Agent: this and the previous anecdote didn't sound like you have any reason to believe them beyond confirmation bias, so bringing up these things compulsively achieves nothing beyond making you look smug.

@  fourteenwings : (24 March 2019 - 12:23 AM)

Well I guess Fortnite sounds cool? Maybe it made more sense before the gameplay started to focus on the Battle Royale bit?

@  fourteenwings : (24 March 2019 - 12:22 AM)

To be fair this is only a few days after your very comprehensive thing about St. Patrick's Day. Oh also I guess that thing about the Estonian currency exchange so that's like three entire "Americans!" squawks this week.

@  Maruten : (24 March 2019 - 12:22 AM)

Not that Nitefort is any more sensible obviously.

@  Maruten : (24 March 2019 - 12:21 AM)

I tend to forget that it's called Fortnite because my 3yo calls it "Nitefort" so that's how my whole family refers to it.

@  Maruten : (24 March 2019 - 12:21 AM)

I assume the name is derived from the fact that one can build forts? But the nite part is a stretch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 March 2019 - 12:17 AM)

Hence I thought it would be an amusing anecdote to share as I am not a gamer, but other pop culture-invested people here probably would be, and thus perhaps they would have different relevant experience to share.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 March 2019 - 12:16 AM)

In fact before now I did not feel "superior" for knowing the word "fortnight" because I was raised to believe it was a rare but standard term.

@  Copper Bezel : (23 March 2019 - 10:33 PM)

Eh, it's not a common word in the US, so ... like I sincerely hope no one's feeling superior about it but I wouldn't assume.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 March 2019 - 09:59 PM)

Shield Agent: What is up with your compulsion to bring up every anecdote that supports your superiority complex towards Americans?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 March 2019 - 09:22 PM)

What I don't get is: what is a game titled "two weeks" even about?

@  Trpodeca : (23 March 2019 - 09:16 PM)

What strange people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 March 2019 - 09:11 PM)

Interesting. I have just been informed by several Britons and Australians that since the debut of Fortnite, they have encountered Yanks who do not believe that "fortnight" is a real word.

@  Rycochet : (22 March 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Call them out because if nobody challenges them on nonsense, they'll only sink deeper into their rabbithole of stupidity.

@  Benbot : (22 March 2019 - 11:26 AM)

When someone makes a deliberately hateful and dishonest post on Facebook, do you angrily call them out on it, or just ignore or defriend them?

That or Old Testament God with his whole nuking cities, random plagues, brutal pogroms, absurd set ups to test followers faiths, etc etc as a very not rogue Goa'uld.

@  Pennpenn : (22 March 2019 - 03:48 AM)

1) Spite. 2) I'm fairly sure at least one episode did actually have a Goa'uld who'd be hiding out on Earth since the rebellion and had been host swapping and running cults, 3) mostly yeah spiteful contrivance to see Christain groups lose their collective shit.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 March 2019 - 02:49 AM)

If you don't take paypal, and the item isn't a local pickup (in which case Cash is acceptable), I'm pretty sure you need to have some alternative credit card processor you're able to take payment through

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 March 2019 - 02:48 AM)

Technically eBay doesn't own Paypal anymore, but even so I haven't seen an auction in years that didn't take Paypal as a form of payment.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 March 2019 - 11:01 PM)

I was gonna ask "aren't eBay and Paypal basically the same people" but turns out that hasn't been true for a while.

I'd heard of the KS to dub it but only long after it was a thing. I assume that's the dub that Netflix is using as well? I didn't realize until looking now that the KS and the Netflix deal happened in the same year. 

The Kickstarter was for that, yeah.  Blurays were a kickstarter exclusive backer reward at a high enough tier-- Ankama had no interest in mass releasing DVD or bluray as they felt the real money was getting Wakfu on streaming services.

I found them funny with little knowledge of international football, but this is a show that rather likes making a joke out of the pointlessness of its own sidequests. Which is to say, it's pretty shameless about its episodic elements.

Wakfu is absolutely delightful, and yeah - I never got around to looking at my blurays, either. Or trying out the little card game, whoops. I did take a look at the dub when it first dropped, and while a lot of it seemed okay, Ruel's dub voice was just painfully flat and generic, so I'll definitely stick with the original french.

 

That said, I had no idea S3 was actually happening - I've wondered where the heck they were gonna go after the ending for the OVAs. God, just add that to all the good media to consume coming out in April.

 

Looks like Netflix is missing two of the prequel/side OVAs, though - Ogrest, the Legend and Noximilien the Clockmaker. They both give some background to two of the antagonists, Ogrest's especially is neat since his name gets used as a throwaway curse. Both are animated by different studios than Ankama - Ogrest's is by Studio Ghibli, not sure about Nox's, though. It's got a very out-there scratchy art style.

Just the OVA set, The Quest for the Six Eliatrope Dofus - it's three episodes that take place a few years after S2, but there's also some considerable time passed between it and S3.

The time frame is a bit iffy. The special is six years after season two. Then it's a fuzzy few years after that. Yugo says he has been searching for six months. But I'm not sure how long they waited until he started the search. Adeline's brother got married sometime between that special and season three.

Well, I know a few people were keeping up with this franchise here, so I might as well let you in on some news.  I didn't hear about this until today, when I just randomly decided to look up any season 4 news, myself.

 

Unfortunately, it's almost all bad news.

 

Apparently, Wakfu didn't do very well on Netflix, and Netflix isn't interested in funding the show anymore.  It also sounds like one of the original French channels that WAS funding the show is shutting down.  So...seasons 4 and 5 probably aren't happening as originally imagined.  

 

The...sorta good news is that Ankama MIGHT make the rest of the Wakfu story a free webcomic.  They need to tell the rest of the story to lead up to their new game (now called Waven).  I have no idea if there's enough of a fanbase in the west left to even guarantee a fan-translation of a webcomic, but it might be something.  Seriously, these year-plus long waits are NOT helping keep the franchise alive *sigh*.  I don't think that manga that was supposed to bridge the OVAs and Season 3 ever even finished.  *HEAVY SIGH*

 

Sounds like they plan to release Waven in late 2020, so we'll probably have to wait and see what they'll actually end up doing until sometime next year.  *FINAL SIGH*

 

BUT, just so it's not all bad news, here's an interesting interview with the creator of Wakfu, Tot.  It goes over what's happening with Season 4, an idea for a Oropo side-story, and the original idea for Evangelyne's plot.  Make sure to turn on the closed captions for the english subtitles:
