Circuit-breaker '84, this is Megatron's rubber duck. We've got ourselves a Rodimus Convoy. Do you copy? Over.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 07:06 AM)

I'm not going to sit here and bicker with you. I've made my point very clear and have nothing more to say on the issue.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 07:00 AM)

I can't do anything to prevent hurricanes either but it'd be absurd to suggest I therefore shouldn't talk about them.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:57 AM)

Basically neither you nor I even like South Park anyways so the best you can do is leave it alone rather than suggest it is corrupting hearts and minds.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:55 AM)

In that case I'm... not sure what the point is?

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:53 AM)

Nobody should be taking their morals from South Park. You can't prevent people from doing it. It's an artistic work with fans. I don't think I'm off-track.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:51 AM)

As far as I can tell you just of course'd the thing you were poopooing...

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

Also, this is starting to get a bit too serious for the shoutbox (though it already was)

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

"It's that they're internalizing the overall attitude that the writers display through the show's writing." Of course, that's South Park's "artistic" style. It's what South Park's audience wants, and that's okay.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:47 AM)

You can probably finish the sentence "I got 50% of my sense of humor from" with the name of some fictional work.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

And it still wouldn't be S.W.A.T.'ss or Grey's Anatomy's or South Park's fault.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

The idea isn't that people are taking South Park's in-universe parody moral lessons seriously (though as Nevermore points out, you can't safely assume that isn't also happening). It's that they're internalizing the overall attitude that the writers display through the show's writing.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:45 AM)

"People say" those people are right, and you should listen to them. We can't protect people from themselves, but you can advise them well.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:27 AM)

So many medical disasters because someone took what they saw on a hospital show at face value.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:25 AM)

So many people who think police and court procedure works like it does in Hollywood, and act accordingly. Sometimes to their own disadvantage, sometimes just to the frustration of well-meaning authorities.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2020 - 06:24 AM)

People say "you shouldn't take your morals from a TV show" all the time, but regardless of how these people want things to work doesn't mean other people aren't doing it anyways.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:01 AM)

And I mean, if you're looking for a 1950s conservative position on something, it's certainly that a TV show is rotting children's minds.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2020 - 06:00 AM)

Conservatives are not hiding under the bed waiting to ruin... uh... Family Guy of all things? And like, nobody should be taking their morals from South Park. Expecting such things is impractical.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

It was just the cartoon with those foul mouthed kids in the UK until that bubble burst after the movie. Reviewers joked the movies target audience would be unable to see it for the rating.

@  Paladin : (15 July 2020 - 05:14 PM)

see also: "South Park." the show that poisoned a generation by teaching them "it's stupid to feel for other people."

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:04 AM)

'Take that! People who care about things!'

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:02 AM)

With Brian, he stopped being the voice of reason and started to be the right wing notion of a liberal, someone who's lazy, pretentious, doesn't work at anything, is every bit as abusive as the rest of the cast and only wins arguments with strawmen.

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

Of course, I stopped enjoying Family Guy around that time, so my bias is clear. XP

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:54 AM)

Is it because they changed or we changed?  Stuff that was charming, or at least, funny at first can get really annoying the longer you know a person... and I find that can go for fictional characters as well.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:45 AM)

One example is Family Guy where around season 8 Brian is suddenly reviled by everyone and has acted way out of character since.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:44 AM)

My least favorite thing in fiction is when it changes hands so you get a author, writer or showrunner who hates a character or messes with a arc/layout.

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 July 2020 - 04:23 PM)

@  Paladin : (14 July 2020 - 06:18 AM)

the correct answwer to "who shot first" will always be "Harrison Ford if he ever hears that hugging question again."

"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

You went into Copperbell? I don't recall a level 50 boss in there.

 

Or were on a normal quest and ran into a Hunt mark?

 

Balouve Mines, in chapter 1. I'd heard idle talk of something in the mines, so decided to check it out. No actual quest.

I just stumbled on it while idly exploring. Pissed me off for exactly the reason you stated. So many low-level goblins, it seemed like a good grinding place until...we dove too deep.

Made it a point to stay away for a while. But then I started looking for royal arms and returned. It was so satisfying whupping his sorry butt!

It's been a while, so I forget how, but there's some way to change the colors of your teams Chocobo along with their names. I think there's someone you talk to at a Chocobo farm.

My biggest frustration with 15 atm is how fights will stack on top of each other. I could be fighting like a Gigatoad, which is an annoying fight at my level, then Imperial solider lad right on top of me, turning the fight from doable to a quest in frustration. Worse when it happens during a hunt.

Yeah, those imperial airdrops can get annoying early game. In fact, there's quite a few things that are pretty annoying early game that gets much better late game to post game.

Having to camp or go to a hotel every night no matter how much you may want stock up exp. points for a bigger payoff or try to save money gets much better when you upgrade the car so you can drive at night and you're high enough level to take on the demons that come out at that time. Post game you get a version of the car where you don't even have to worry about gas.

And those air drops become a matter of "bring it, cannon fodder!"

Wow, this game just can't avoid the bullshit. -_- This time, the placement of a level 54 giant snake enemy. They happen to place RIGHT in the spawn point of TWO hunts, both somewhere in the 20s for level suggestion. But those are optional, no the bigger hug you is that it is ALSO in the way of a Chapter 3 story dungeon.

 

As much as I overall enjoy this game, there are times like this I want to stab the developers.

Man, seeing all the FFVII Remake gameplay and how everything looks is giving me all the feels. I have to play the Steam version and finish it before March.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I remember one time I went on a low level hunt but the low level target was in an area filled with high(er) level things that shredded me. It's frustrating, but that's just where I grinded and came back....or ran my ass off to get around the high powered thing.

I'm glad FF7 is getting a full remake. It's nowhere near my favorites in the series, but it's the one in the series I've felt for years has been most desperately in need of a remake. So I'll be looking forward to giving the game another go with a readable translation, a consistent graphical design, and no muddled pre-rendered backdrops that leave you wondering where you're supposed to go and where the path is to get there.

 

What I'm not looking forward to is buying a full-priced game that only goes through the Midgar part of the game. I mean, I know it's going to be enormously expanded from what Midgar was in the original game, but that's still not even getting us through disc 1! How many releases will it take to get the entire original game? And if just this part has taken this long, how many years will it take before it's all completed?

Yeah, FF7 is the one game that grapnically hasn't aged well. 1-6 having pixel art will always look nice in that retro style. 8 and up look good as well, obvious some a bit dated but the ps1 FF8 graphically isn't bad since the player models still look like the art. 7 just kinda stands out for looking off compared either style. Since you got the N64 style game models but the realistic looking cut scenes and it just a strange juxtaposition. It seems most everyone has just wanted a version of 7 where everyone at least looked like 8 or 10.

Not sure what's been said before, but the producer gave an interview this week where he apparently indicated the first FF7 remake game will be just a massively expanded Midgar. Two blu-rays' worth of Midgar.

 

“Remaking Final Fantasy VII has allowed us to dive much deeper into the world and its characters than ever before,” said producer Yoshinori Kitase. “The game design was optimized for this title as well, and we anticipate two Blu-Ray discs’ worth of gameplay content. The first game in this project expands on the story of Midgar and is such an elaborate retelling that it’s become a solid standalone game in its own right.”
