Maybe they only play on PS4 and can’t speak on the activity of the other servers.

For me, it was using the little plug-in light on my Gameboy Color so I could read under my blankets. Yep, not to play my Gameboy, but to read books. I was that nerdy kid growing up.

Pretty new to fighting games, myself, so I’m not personally excited for Third Strike, but I’m happy for everyone who is! Very much looking forward to GGS, GBVR, and UNI2, myself. Tekken 8 and SF6 should be fun to watch, too.

Blade barrier is fucking amazing!

We just got ambushed in a courtyard by about 15 enemies standing on a walkway above us, with no immediately obvious way for us to get up there. We were sitting ducks. So Shadowheart cast blade barrier across the entire walkway. In addition to doing a lot of damage every turn, it imposes difficult terrain. All of the enemies...

Bless at low-to-mid levels and spirit guardians later are the best things Shadowheart can spend her concentration on for, like, 95% of situations. Both spells are extremely good, just like they are in the tabletop. Never understood people criticizing Shadowheart for being useless; she’s a Cleric, and that’s great already even if her subclass (which you can respec her out of) is subpar for the class.

It has a relatively small but dedicated player base still, and gets one or two balance patches a year. Generally pretty easy to find games in quick match, ARAM and ranked mode, but unranked draft is hard to get into (was always a less popular mode).

Game is still fun if you enjoyed it when it was more active, just don’t expect frequent updates unless Microsoft suddenly sees some massive potential for profit and funds it heavily out of nowhere for some reason.

Weekly raiding in FFXIV with friends, M+ in WoW by myself, also started back up in EVE Online again, just grinding a bit of isk to get back into the feel of things again.

For non-MMO stuff, I’ve been slowly getting through Cyberpunk 2077 and working on my all-numbered-FFs playthrough. Still playing Guilty Gear Strive, as well. God, there are too many video games to play.

Getting a little bored in 2077, the DLC patch hasn’t changed anything I had real criticisms of and the gameplay isn’t significantly better to make up for it, but I’ll try to power through and see if the DLC itself is any good.

Also a bit into FF2, and the leveling system is…strange. Definitely not a huge fan of leveling individual weapons/spells, especially on a per-action basis. But while the story seems basic so far, I’m interested enough to keep going with it.

As for Guilty Gear, I’m trying to get more consistent with my buttons, and trying to push myself to actually remember combos in matches. I’m good at neutral, I just don’t get enough from winning it to actually win enough games to progress where I’m at rank-wise (floor 8-9). So, getting more reward from winning neutral seems like the next big step on the path to improvement right now.

I main Testament. Bottom 3 character, but I love their playstyle and aesthetic, so I’m in it for the long haul with them.

Big things for me right now are learning to do an RC or WA off of hit confirms.

Leshoyadut,
Leshoyadut avatar

Heh, appreciate the positivity. I don’t mean to say that, because they’re bottom 3, that means Testament can’t win. I mostly use tier lists to help recognize where I may have trouble and need to work to learn the particulars, such as for matchups. The game is very well balanced overall, despite a few small hiccups.

But yeah, my f.S is definitely my main tool for getting hits to confirm off of at range. HS is decent, but very slow and can be punished hard by any sort of disconnected hitbox, so I tend to use it predictively and as a followup more than a poke; great for juggling, though, since it hard bounces. Fireball is a staple, as well, and Arbiter is nice for checking movement (catches dashs if they start out of range).

But yeah. Mostly just need to practice actually using RCs and WAs in real matches. Practiced combos in the lab enough that more isn’t helping a ton.

Thanks for the advice!

I HOPE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ALL RECOVER QUICKLY AND FULLY. MAY YOUR HOG BE READY FOR CRANKING WHEN YOU’RE BACK TO IT. ARRROOOOOOOOO.

I'm currently downloading a show that is on a service to which I subscribe

I have a Galaxy Tab S7 and for a trip to Spain I downloaded some stuff to watch on the flight. When I got on the plane none of the stuff downloaded on Disney+ would play. Maybe an issue with downloading to the SD card? I don’t know, but regardless Disney offers SD card as a download destination so they should make sure it is...

I remember trying to watch anime on Hulu recently. I have the sub with ads and the ads kept causing a desync in the subtitles. The ads they added kept causing problems with their player. So I just downloaded it because it was unwatchable.

The one that got me recently when I tried Linux was mouse software. I couldn’t configure my mouse buttons even close to what I have on Windows (couldn’t use modifiers like shift or control on one mouse, to start), and it just felt bad.

The shield-based fighting style was also a small note that was missed in the duel between Paul and Jamis in the movie. Paul was missing what they thought were clear cuts and as a result they believed he was cruelly toying with Jamis, but it was because he was slowing his blade at the very last moment due to shield training.

Also a slightly weird moment for me as a book fan was when the thopter Duncan escaped in clearly showed that it had shields with a rock crashing off of it, but then he was being chased by lasguns immediately after.

Great patch so far, imo. Automelee is quite possibly the best single QoL feature they've ever added, and Dagath has been quite a bit of fun. Still kinda feeling things out with her as far as survivability goes, but I'm starting to get the hang of it with the right mod setup. Dorrclave is also pretty sweet, though I wish it were slightly faster with some of its attacks; just annoying how long some of the animations take.

If you’re finding that he’s doing fine in combat, then don’t worry about it. If you want him to do more, then multiclassing can improve that if you know what you want from the multiclass combo.

A lot of them also adopt the dogs from the street because the dogs, too, have no home. It’s not like they’re going to a breeder and spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on a dog.

Not always. As in the case of a funeral, but certainly not exclusive to funerals, “I’m sorry,” can be an expression of sympathy without the apology for fault that we also associate with the saying.

Big agree. Glad I actually read through the whole thing. Looks like a decent case against Amazon. Let’s hope the FTC wins.

Yeah, if these kinds of rules really stopped people from selling art at conventions, I’d have dozens fewer prints waiting to be hung up.

I’M SORRY, BROTHER, YOU NEED TO SPEAK UP. I CAN’T HEAR YOU OVER THE SOUND OF MY HOG BEING CRANKED.

Missed this when it was posted, but I generally like what I see here. Slightly sad about shocking grasp, but it’s already not that far ahead of other options for Magi. And of course, we don’t have the full picture yet, so we can’t really tell if they’re actually worse off overall.

But the general combining of similar effects, like light and dancing lights, is good, and better standardization of the math for cantrips and other things is great. Also like seeing simplifying stuff like VSM components and the damage for acid splash. All in all, a great direction for things.

The difference between RAW and RAI (ttrpg.network)

Edit: A lot of people say, that GWM needs a melee weapon attack, but they miss Jesses point: While GWM requires a melee attack with a heavy weapon, Sharpshooters only criteria is an attack with a ranged weapon (not a ranged weapon attack). Jesse bases his claim on the fact, that a crossbow is still a ranged weapon, even if used...

Was with you until your final point. Per the “Ability Modifiers” section of Attack Rolls in chapter 9, making a melee weapon attack uses Strength. The only exception to this is weapons that have finesse, which the crossbow does not. And despite this being an attack with a ranged weapon, you are using it as a melee weapon attack.

If the devs didn’t want me to reload the game, they’d have made it so I couldn’t save in conversations and combat (at the very least). Clearly they were cool with it as part of the intended play experience, so I see no reason to be apologetic about it.

Baldur's Gate 3 Dev Feared Low Review Scores Due to Bugs (wccftech.com)

Speaking to the Dungeons & Dragons YouTube channel, Larian Studios CEO Swen Vincke admitted that the developers feared some low scores for Baldur's Gate 3 due to potential bugs encountered by reviewers. This explains why review codes were only sent a handful of days before the PC launch....

I’ll be honest, I think they needed more than just another month to smooth a lot of stuff out. Heck, we can see that just from how long it’s taken to fix the bugs they have fixed and how many more issues there still are.
