[00:05:13] <aria> I wonder if there is any way I could stylize it where it would look professional
[00:05:21] <aria> Perhaps Dr. Rex
[00:05:31] <aria> But Im not sure if thats legal..
[00:05:40] <aria> (Given that doctor is a name, and not a title)

[07:10:06] <nine> okeefe: That's called a netsplit. Happens when the individual IRC servers making up the network disconnect from each other.
[07:10:21] <aria> It happens less on good networks
[07:10:40] <aria> Sadly good networks don't exist, outside of those with 5 users
[07:13:53] <nine> Eeeyup.
[07:13:55] <nine> 5 users.
[07:13:58] <nine> And 1 server.
[07:14:05] <nine> So nothing to split!

[15:02:07] <Bronzdragon> I have to agree with Robobuntu.
[15:02:15] <Bronzdragon> I doubt you could be 10 dinosaurs...

[15:04:45] <Bronzdragon> 'ello again
[15:06:32] <Bronzdragon> ... FTL is wider than my laptop screen.
[15:06:46] <Bronzdragon> I really wish it wasn't resolution locked... =(
[15:13:29] <Bronzdragon> ... well, it doesn't matter anyway, because FTL is too slow
[15:13:34] <Bronzdragon> The framerate is horrible
[15:13:54] <Bronzdragon> And it seems that it's coded in such a way that framerate = speed, oddly enough
[15:26:07] -!- Snickety-Snake [Snickety-Snake!Snickety-S@79AEAB88.E40122CD.82D2B239.IP] has joined #geeknights
[15:32:19] <Bronzdragon> Hey there Mr. Snake
[15:34:24] <creamsteak> it's not locked to frame rate speed, that's for sure
[15:34:34] <creamsteak> otherwise I wouldn't be able to play it at all at 600 frames/second
[15:36:04] <Bronzdragon> It's still super slow on my laptop though
[15:36:10] <Bronzdragon> things take forever
[15:36:19] <Bronzdragon> And it's still perfectly smooth... so I don't really get why
[15:37:20] <Bronzdragon> On a unrelated note, I'm currently in a hotel
[15:37:46] <Bronzdragon> They've been kind enough to provide me with cups, spoons, sugar and milk, a water boiler, and 2 bags of tea
[15:37:59] <Bronzdragon> Unfortunately, there are only 2 bags of tea
[15:38:07] <Bronzdragon> So currently, I'm rationing them for after dinner
[15:38:18] <Bronzdragon> But I feel like making tea... #firstworldproblems
[15:45:17] <Bronzdragon> Oh dude! My laser shot an ion shot out of the air!
[15:45:19] <Bronzdragon> cool

[16:03:28] -!- Neito has quit [Ping timeout]
[16:13:21] <creamsteak> yeah... i've never tried to make those shots but they can happen
[16:13:33] <creamsteak> shooting a missile or laser also works
[16:13:35] <creamsteak> not beams though
[16:13:39] <creamsteak> or bombs
[16:14:00] <creamsteak> bombs are probably the worst thing but I rarely notice them
[16:15:11] <Bronzdragon> You can't really "make" those shots on purpose...
[16:19:51] <Bronzdragon> Did you know that the glaive pierces one layer of shield?
[16:20:07] <Bronzdragon> I got it super early on... when enemies still only had 1 layer...
[16:20:16] <Bronzdragon> Yeah... =D
[16:22:44] <Bronzdragon> Unrelated note, why do hotels have bibles in them?
[16:23:01] <Bronzdragon> I found one here, and I thought it was a 'Murica thing.
[16:23:26] <Bronzdragon> Since we're a not very pious country.

[19:05:14] <Neito> We were waiting for you to get back.
[19:05:26] <Bronzdragon> Oh... I'm sorry I got angry then.
[19:05:29] <Bronzdragon> Yay!
[19:30:00] <GauntletWizard> Quiet IRC is quiet
[19:30:15] <GauntletWizard> We obviously need a gamebot to encourage people to spam the channel
[19:35:35] <Bronzdragon> Yes!
[19:35:40] <Bronzdragon> Spam is good

[19:51:47] <GauntletWizard> that reminds me, I should find some good ERP channels.
[19:51:53] <nine> No.
[19:52:05] <nine> I accidentally double clicked irssi instead of Planetside 2.
[19:53:38] <Bronzdragon> ...
[19:53:40] <Bronzdragon> That happens
[19:54:22] <nine> Yup.
[19:54:36] <nine> Time to watch cartoon porn from China.
[19:55:07] <Bronzdragon> China?
[19:55:11] <Bronzdragon> Hmmmm...
[20:05:58] <nine> Yup.
[20:06:04] <nine> Maybe Korea, but that'd be too expensive.

[20:20:56] <aria> ...Wait
[20:20:58] <aria> yey
[20:21:00] <aria> Thats good
[20:21:06] <Bronzdragon> I agree
[20:44:18] <creamsteak> "trolling mom" advice animal
[20:44:38] <Bronzdragon> Is the meme that she is 'trolling'
[20:44:44] <Bronzdragon> or is it played seriously
[20:45:02] <creamsteak> I mean I want there to be an advice animal that's basically a mother that trolls her kids
[20:45:21] <okeefe> "Advice animal"?
[20:45:33] <Bronzdragon> Do you know courage wolf?
[20:45:48] <creamsteak> or awkward penguin, or whatever
[20:45:53] <Bronzdragon> Do you know scumbag steve or good guy greg?
[20:45:58] <Bronzdragon> Those are all advice animals
[20:46:02] <creamsteak> knowyourmeme has all the details if you need details
[20:46:11] <Bronzdragon> Yes, including the people. because people are animals too
[20:46:19] <okeefe> Oh yes. Got it.
[20:47:44] <creamsteak> 15:40 <+aquaone> my mom asked me twice why i wasn't dating an Asian person since i seem to love Asian food and culture so much
[20:47:48] <creamsteak> 15:40 <+aquaone> she then went on to say that my relatinoships keep failing because i love games.
[20:47:50] <creamsteak> 15:40 <+aquaone> i'm not a fan of my mom.
[20:47:51] <creamsteak> that's what made me think of that
[20:48:24] <Bronzdragon> I see
[20:50:21] <Bronzdragon> Imma post this in the ponies thread after I read it all; Here's a sneak peek for you! =D http://www.youtube.com
[20:50:28] <Bronzdragon> (If it sucks, I might not post it)
[20:54:11] <creamsteak> my own mom is just boring, I have no rediculous stories
[20:54:25] <Bronzdragon> My mom doesn't troll
[20:54:42] <Bronzdragon> The most interesting thing she does is fail to grasp some concept, and then I can chuckle at it
[20:54:51] <Bronzdragon> And then I explain it, and she understands...
[21:01:44] <pence> "she then went on to say that my relatinoships keep failing because i love games."
[21:01:56] <pence> If you love video games so much why don't you marry them?!
[21:02:17] <Bronzdragon> hi pence!
[21:02:24] <pence> hey Bronzdragon
[21:02:36] <aria> That's a fair point
[21:06:29] <pence> from twitter: "Dryads & other tree folk probably breathe carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen. So, making out with one means not needing to come up for air."
[21:07:13] <Bronzdragon> The problem is that normal trees have a very slow metabolism, allowing them to breath very little
[21:07:18] <aria> Interesting
[21:07:33] <Bronzdragon> If their breathing is sped up, I think carbon dioxide, and it's related process takes too long
[21:07:51] <Bronzdragon> So either you wouldn't get enough air, or their breath system woudln't work the same.
[21:08:21] <aria> Also, it is possible to breathe with your nose while making out
[21:09:35] <Bronzdragon> ... I think you're missing out on the "underwater" part
[21:09:40] <Bronzdragon> That's the critical issue here.
[21:09:49] <aria> Oh right, it's under water?
[21:09:54] <Bronzdragon> wait, that's not explicitly mentioned...
[21:09:58] <Bronzdragon> I imagined it though.
[21:10:32] <GauntletWizard> hrmm
[21:10:45] <GauntletWizard> I am trying Konsole again
[21:10:53] <GauntletWizard> Because gnome-terminal sucks.
[21:10:54] <Bronzdragon> And?
[21:10:56] <GauntletWizard> Thank you, ubuntu
[21:10:56] <Robobuntu> oo-BOON-too
[21:10:59] <Bronzdragon> =O
[21:11:00] <GauntletWizard> thank you, gnome
[21:11:03] <Bronzdragon> You take that back!
[21:11:08] <GauntletWizard> thank you, !@#$ing nvidia
[21:11:15] <aria> I don't like Konsole because it has so many meters of chrome
[21:11:18] <aria> I use Terminator
[21:11:29] <aria> it has slips and tabs, does encoding well, Im generally quite happy
[21:11:37] <aria> Whats wrong with Gnome term?
[21:11:47] <aria> splits*
[21:12:14] <GauntletWizard> It is slow
[21:12:20] <GauntletWizard> slow at redrawing
[21:12:42] <aria> Huh? Is that because of the hardware you're on, or because of the things you do?
[21:12:55] <aria> Because I'm on terrible hardware, but didn't notice it
[21:13:04] <aria> Then again, I don't use gnome-terminal..
[21:13:06] <GauntletWizard> I think it's driver issues
[21:13:22] <Bronzdragon> I think I might get what you're saying...
[21:13:31] <Bronzdragon> But I don't think slowness is an issue.
[21:13:39] <Bronzdragon> I use gnome-terminal all the time
[21:13:45] <GauntletWizard> trying terminator
[21:13:46] <Bronzdragon> And usually it's fine.
[21:13:48] <aria> Bronz, you use the terminal a lot less than most linux users
[21:13:53] <Bronzdragon> That is true
[21:13:58] <Bronzdragon> I do use it fairly little
[21:14:00] <aria> And for less complex things
[21:14:09] <Bronzdragon> irssi is the most complex, I guess?
[21:14:21] <aria> Irssi is pretty complex, but its also well made =P
[21:14:21] <Bronzdragon> I should do more crazy things on linux
[21:14:39] <Bronzdragon> Eh, it's not /that/ complex
[21:14:47] <Bronzdragon> Also, it's really light, it doesn't do a lot of 'things'.
[21:15:34] <aria> Eh, it has tabs and scales well, does color, does line breaks. It doesn't do any ASCII art volume knobs or faking CSS, but you'd notice bad refrehsing
[21:16:28] <aria> I don't think it's a problem in programs centered around their UIs
[21:16:31] <aria> Like say, the alsamixer
[21:16:51] <aria> It would be worse in regular output that the terminal emulator doesn't know to scale when you scale the window and such
[21:19:08] <okeefe> I usually have a mix of gnome-terminal, xterm, and just running shells in emacs.
[21:19:54] <aria> You use Xterm? Are you on systems that don't have other terminals?

[21:20:27] <Bronzdragon> ... he says he has xterm
[21:20:31] <Bronzdragon> *gnome teriminal
[21:20:34] <Bronzdragon> I got conrused =(
[21:20:40] <aria> Well that could be
[21:20:53] <aria> "When I have Gnome term, I use that, when I don't Xterm is usually here"
[21:21:21] <okeefe> xterm is very, very fast and stupid simple.
[21:21:23] <Bronzdragon> When xterm is not there, I guess you use the CLI?
[21:21:36] <aria> The TTY's have bitmap fonts
[21:21:39] <aria> I actually kinda like them
[21:21:47] <aria> But they are not fit for extensive reading
[21:21:51] <Bronzdragon> When do you run into a situation where you need the extra system resources?
[21:21:57] <aria> Also, deping on your GPU, you'll get a horrible resolution in there
[21:22:12] <aria> Things staring up fast is bliss
[21:22:14] <okeefe> xterm gets me a shell for cli. Do you mean, straight up tty sans X? I only do that when X is broken (so, haven't in years).
[21:22:28] <aria> That is what he meant
[21:22:39] <Bronzdragon> It is!
[21:23:01] <aria> Okeefe; You should look into preload
[21:23:07] <Bronzdragon> I was just saying TTY < Xterm < Gnome terminal < possibly other terminal emulators
[21:23:17] <okeefe> The default xterm font is also tiny, so the whole thing takes up less space.
[21:23:33] <aria> but it's too tiny..
[21:23:55] <aria> I'd even pick the mac terminal over xterm!
[21:24:05] <aria> (And the Mac terminal is no good)
[21:24:45] <okeefe> Terminal.app works well enough for me. Which is usually sshing to a linux box running screen (much like I am doing right now to chat with you).
[21:24:58] <GauntletWizard> The future... is in the past!
[21:25:03] <GauntletWizard> Onwards, Aoshima!
[21:25:14] <aria> Did you like Terminator?
[21:25:15] <Bronzdragon> To be fair, the future only happens because the past set it up
[21:26:29] <GauntletWizard> terminator was preciesly as slow as everything else
[21:26:40] <GauntletWizard> I think it is my drivers and compositing options
[21:26:43] <aria> But Konsole was better?
[21:26:45] <GauntletWizard> but I do not know how to fix them.
[21:26:54] <GauntletWizard> No, Konsole is also broken
[21:26:55] <aria> Which driver?
[21:27:42] <aria> If Nvidia, since you're on Ubuntu, you can try to the brand new gaming-drivers
[21:27:43] <Robobuntu> oo-BOON-too
[21:28:12] <aria> If that doesn't exist on 12.04 (or doesn't exist yet in general), try the open ones?
[21:28:20] <okeefe> Messing with drivers... havne't done that in years. Even getting s-video out to work was a breeze last time I cared, ~3 years ago.
[21:29:11] <aria> Everything in linux is a breeze other than drivers =P
[21:29:18] <aria> Well, closed stuff in general
[21:29:59] <aria> If a company values Windows users over Linux users, anything by that company will make you want to punch things.
[21:30:35] <aria> For example Skype and Flash =P
[21:31:24] -!- VentureJ has quit [Broken pipe]
[21:31:57] <Bronzdragon> ... someone on the Internet tried to argue that customizable faces in a game is a bad idea because it might introduce lag.
[21:32:12] -!- creamsteak has quit [Quit: leaving]
[21:32:12] <aria> ...
[21:32:21] <GauntletWizard> I'm somewhat limited, because I can't just go installing drivers willy-nilly myself
[21:32:32] <GauntletWizard> there's a company distro
[21:32:42] <aria> Do you at least know what driver it is?
[21:32:47] <aria> There are things you can do in userspace
[21:33:12] <aria> @Bronz Well it might make the loading longer, or have to make the countdown after everything is loaded, but not synced longer
[21:33:42] <aria> Also, it might introduce CPU lag, rather than network lag
[21:33:45] <Bronzdragon> he mentioned "milliseconds matter"
[21:34:12] <Bronzdragon> Eh... you just render everyone's face once, and save it to RAM
[21:34:17] <Bronzdragon> Maybe the face will have more polygons...
[21:34:21] <Bronzdragon> I could see that...
[21:34:28] <aria> You can also do it wrong
[21:34:37] <aria> like, body and face aren't the same object
[21:34:41] <Bronzdragon> But that means the map has more effect on 'lag' anywya
[21:34:46] <Bronzdragon> Well, you render the face onto the body
[21:34:54] <Bronzdragon> And save the entire model once per load
[21:34:55] <aria> Also, takes more ram
[21:35:04] <aria> Not having enough ram is bad
[21:35:06] <Bronzdragon> Again, map has a bigger effect.
[21:35:17] <aria> But I don't think any modern games take more ram than any modern computer has..
[21:35:25] <Bronzdragon> And gameplay doesn't change per map (except for DarkSouls)
[21:36:01] <aria> In the dark souls PVP mode, they should tell you stats next to the maps
[21:36:30] <aria> "500m, 30m verticality, X and Y obsticle, 20 FPS"
[21:36:49] <nine> >20FPS
[21:36:59] <nine> Console plebeian!
[21:37:07] <aria> I'm being generous
[21:37:15] <aria> There are areas that run at maybe 5 on Xbox.
[21:37:48] <aria> To be fair, most of it is 30. But then you make the mistake of looking behind you...
[21:38:43] <Bronzdragon> ... Nine, you do realize Dark Souls is FPS locked to 30 on PC as well?
[21:39:39] <aria> Eh, the framedrops are part of the experience!
[21:39:45] <aria> They should lock blighttown to 10 =p
[21:40:04] <Bronzdragon> =P
[21:41:07] <Neo> so, 3+ weeks ago the application team announced that the NAS systems I manage were all suddenly throwing tons of transfer errors and the sky was falling. after days and days of long hours of research, firmware upgrades, vendor patches, etc? last night they noticed a memory leak in the application code. problem resolved.
[21:41:14] <Neo> yay *sigh*
[21:41:59] <nine> Most of it is 30 because current consoles are fucking ancient hardware.
[21:42:02] <nine> Seriously, wtf.
[21:42:14] <Bronzdragon> Aria, read this link for me for a bit, will you? http://www.reddit.com
[21:42:19] <nine> Bronzdragon: That's because consoles you tool.
[21:42:27] <Bronzdragon> Yes, I know
[21:42:30] <nine> And FROM cannot into porting games at all.
[21:42:51] <Bronzdragon> And YOU cannot into grammar at all!
[21:43:34] <nine> Memetic typing, deal with it.
[21:44:10] <Bronzdragon> I am dealing with it. By making fun of you.
[21:44:23] <nine> Nonsense.
[21:44:29] <nine> That's just whining and complaining.
[21:44:33] <nine> Also, 60fps mod.
[21:44:49] <aria> Makes you fall through the floor =P
[21:44:54] <Bronzdragon> Isn't that just a frame unlock tool?
[21:45:01] <Bronzdragon> Also, ^
[21:45:12] <aria> Yup, thats a good response.
[21:45:22] <nine> Does it?
[21:45:27] <nine> I wouldn't know because who cares.
[21:45:32] <Bronzdragon> Talking about the reddit post? Because in that case. Thanks
[21:45:38] <aria> Yup
[21:45:39] <Bronzdragon> ... you slide through floors and die
[21:45:43] <nine> Not like xbox's ancient hardware could even conceive of a game running at 60fps.
[21:45:48] <Bronzdragon> The mod makes you randomly die
[21:46:11] <nine> N64 was awesome, you know why?
[21:46:13] <Bronzdragon> That's why we're getting new consoles!
[21:46:21] <nine> They actually made games to run at 60fps.
[21:46:23] <nine> Not a lot, but some.
[21:46:28] <Bronzdragon> Because Nintendo doesn't know how to make controllers?
[21:46:30] <nine> And a stable 60fps!
[21:46:30] <aria> Which game is this?
[21:46:36] <nine> F-Zero X.
[21:46:40] <nine> Totally boss.
[21:46:46] <aria> What game on N64--- I believe thats 30
[21:46:46] <Bronzdragon> Because Cartridges suck at storage?
[21:46:48] <nine> 60fps NO MATTER THE COST.
[21:46:52] <aria> Also, no other games on N64 had 60FPS
[21:46:55] <nine> It's 60 you brick.
[21:46:59] <Bronzdragon> Because it had mario before he became played out?
[21:47:04] <nine> Still more than xbox has.
[21:47:13] <aria> There are Xbox games with 60 FPS =P
[21:47:22] <nine> Nope.
[21:47:27] <nine> Plebeian lies.
[21:47:41] <aria> CoD has 60FPS
[21:47:50] <aria> Dark Souls is not a bad looking game either
[21:47:57] <nine> Yeah, and a fucking FOV of 2.
[21:48:03] <Bronzdragon> Actually...
[21:48:08] <Bronzdragon> CoD has 30 frames per second
[21:48:13] <aria> Really?
[21:48:15] <Bronzdragon> And it has a constant 30
[21:48:17] <nine> AND STILL AN FOV OF FUCKING TWO.
[21:48:17] <Bronzdragon> it never ever drops
[21:48:25] <Bronzdragon> You can't make it change
[21:48:25] <aria> Didn't you say they had a motto of "always 60"?
[21:48:29] <nine> Because it has an FOV of TWO.
[21:48:31] <Bronzdragon> No, it's always 30!
[21:48:37] <aria> That.s..
[21:48:38] <aria> bad
[21:48:46] <nine> Just like the FOV of 2.
[21:48:49] <Bronzdragon> Anyway, if you want a 360 games with 60 frames, look at Burnout paradise
[21:49:13] <nine> No thank you.
[21:50:37] <Bronzdragon> Shaddap, burnout paradise was one of the best games ever
[21:50:45] <Bronzdragon> Btw, 'nother game for our top 100 list
[21:50:46] <nine> It's on xbox.
[21:50:52] <nine> So you are obviously wrong.
[21:51:03] <aria> Burnout 3 FTW!
[21:51:18] <nine> Top 100 list, F-Zero X on spots one through ninety-nine.
[21:51:57] <aria> F Zero GX is a billion times better in every aspect
[21:52:09] -!- Coldguy [Coldguy!320bfe83@hide-6C77D8AA.mibbit.com] has joined #geeknights

[21:52:16] <nine> Lies, slander, shut up Swedish plebeian.
[21:52:37] <Bronzdragon> OH NO YOU DI'INT!
[21:54:19] <aria> Nine, you should play F-Zero GX
[21:54:36] <aria> It's like F-Zero X, but it doesn't look like shit, and cars actually move with some speed
[21:54:45] <aria> Also it has depth to the controls
[21:54:49] <nine> (I know, shut up)
[21:54:51] <aria> and is generally a pretty badass music
[21:54:58] <aria> I do however, prefer the music in X
[21:55:11] <Coldguy> my work is dumb
[21:55:18] <Coldguy> we lose Internet at noon
[21:55:18] <aria> What did your work do?
[21:55:23] <Coldguy> we work from home at 4:45
[21:55:31] <Coldguy> I JUST got my laptop ready
[21:55:36] <Coldguy> hour of work to get done
[21:55:51] <aria> Does getting your laptop ready take time?
[21:55:55] <aria> Do you not just open it?
[21:56:32] <Coldguy> no took me an hour to drive 20 minutes away due to rush hour traffic
[21:56:40] <aria> Oh!
[21:56:41] <aria> Right
[21:56:45] <nine> Lawl US.
[21:56:54] <nine> Tons of roads, still traffec everywhere.
[21:56:59] <Coldguy> I do support work
[21:57:01] <aria> Also tons of people
[21:57:20] <aria> Nine, the netherlands doesn't exactly have empty roads in my experience
[21:57:34] <Bronzdragon> ^
[21:57:36] <nine> You have no experience you silly Dane.
[21:57:50] <Bronzdragon> He's right though...
[21:58:13] <nine> If his experience is limited to fucking Amsterdam.
[21:58:19] <GauntletWizard> http://imgur.com
[22:00:29] <aria> I like that image
[22:01:49] <Bronzdragon> =P
[22:02:15] <nine> Good image.
[22:05:45] <Coldguy> Do you want to install the tracking software on your desktop?
[22:05:55] <Coldguy> O just got a prompt for that
[22:05:57] <aria> Hm?
[22:05:58] <Coldguy> *I
[22:06:06] <aria> Probably not =P?
[22:06:08] <Bronzdragon> ...
[22:06:11] <Coldguy> Nope
[22:06:24] <Coldguy> Besides I need a new laptop for cons anyway
[22:11:11] <Coldguy> any suggestions?
[22:11:24] <nine> None.
[22:11:30] <nine> Bring your tower.
[22:12:14] <aria> I want one of the lenovo ultrabooks
[22:12:27] <aria> They're lighter and small, and lenovo usually has pretty good build quality
[22:12:41] <nine> Or better, bring your desktop case, or even a Cube.
[22:12:45] <aria> They use high end chipsets, so they won't lag doing con stuff
[22:14:10] <nine> PS2 time.
[22:14:12] <nine> BYE!
[22:14:16] <Bronzdragon> Ciao
[22:14:20] <aria> Should be gamecube and Fzero
[22:14:21] <aria> do it better
[22:14:52] <Coldguy> itsd down to give presentation, hook up to projector, conencting to tv (if available) surf web wirelessly and have enough space to download shit or burn occusional cdc
[22:15:18] <nine> Planetside 2, you Norwegian console plebeian!
[22:15:35] <aria> Everything other than downloading and burning can be done on one of those...
[22:15:59] <aria> That should be a good game like Tribes! Do it better! =P
[22:16:10] <aria> Hey Bronz, is Planetside actually fun?
[22:17:40] <Bronzdragon> ...
[22:17:45] <Bronzdragon> If you like big scale battles
[22:17:48] <Bronzdragon> and running...
[22:17:49] <aria> Sure
[22:17:53] <aria> Fast?
[22:17:58] <Bronzdragon> a lot
[22:18:03] <aria> ...
[22:18:05] <aria> Very fast?
[22:18:11] <Bronzdragon> no no, more
[22:18:20] <Bronzdragon> as in, much running
[22:18:23] <aria> Faster than tribes?
[22:20:24] <Bronzdragon> You run slow
[22:20:28] <Bronzdragon> You just do a lot of it
[22:20:35] <Bronzdragon> Because large scale battle
[22:20:57] <Bronzdragon> It's kinda like old battlefield
[22:21:03] <Bronzdragon> 'cept in space
[22:21:32] <aria> I like old battlefield
[22:21:39] <aria> I can take a jet and go fast
[22:21:40] <aria> also brb
[22:22:10] <Bronzdragon> Planetside 2 has jets
[22:22:19] <Bronzdragon> You can buy them for in game currency
[22:23:46] <Bronzdragon> I got a reply to my reddit thing
[22:23:56] <Bronzdragon> He even got some sly insults in.

[22:26:24] <aria> hi
[22:28:38] <aria> ...
[22:28:44] <aria> That person seems very dumb
[22:28:56] <Bronzdragon> Well... he did make valid points
[22:29:01] <aria> No he didn't
[22:29:03] <aria> Guns do stuff
[22:29:04] <Bronzdragon> there are bugs that are kinda dumb in CoD
[22:29:10] <aria> They change variables
[22:29:15] <aria> they stack
[22:29:20] <aria> they have stats
[22:29:26] <aria> Theres a bunch of stuff
[22:29:27] <Bronzdragon> if you used a killstreak, no damage to your head would work.
[22:29:36] <aria> Animations are new states with code tied to them
[22:29:38] <Bronzdragon> You could shoot somone as much as you wanted in the head...
[22:29:39] <aria> A new face cannot glitch
[22:29:45] <aria> Because its just a new face
[22:31:14] <Bronzdragon> I do not disagree
[22:31:20] <aria> It doesn't matter if every combination of facial features has been tested or not, because the rendering engine has been tested to death
[22:31:24] <aria> we know it can do 3D
[22:40:06] <aria> I wonder how much shit Im gonna get over this post in the loli manga thread...
[22:40:44] <Bronzdragon> ... possibly some shit
[22:46:16] <GauntletWizard> Man, so goodamn much armchair psychology in that thread
