[00:00:33] <Cybylt> though it's more because he produces explosive plasma that he then licks onto his shelled forearms and claws
[00:01:04] <Cybylt> he's scary
[00:01:49] <Cybylt> he's fast, hits like a truck, and when angry his explosions are instant instead of timed as well as having a bigger blast radius
[00:02:41] <Cybylt> his G rank armor has a sweet skill though
[00:03:00] <aria> Do you listen to the Monster Hunter Podcast?
[00:03:06] <Cybylt> nah
[00:03:12] <aria> Also known as the only podcast about Japanese games and gaming news?
[00:04:20] <aria> (The 8-4play podcast http://8-4.jp They translate most games)
[00:05:26] <Cybylt> That reminds me, heard PSO2 sold out on vita
[00:08:36] <Apsup> It seems that this MH 3rd Portable works.
[00:08:50] <Apsup> Meaning the translation patch.
[00:09:28] <Apsup> Dman this machine can produce pretty cut scenes.
[00:11:28] <aria> Why doesn't Star Trek make sense?
[00:12:39] <Apsup> Many things don't.
[00:14:30] <aria> Bronz somehow, without noticing just now took 11171 screenshots.
[00:15:41] <Apsup> Monster Hunter 3 portable has no undertanding to pasing. Hot springs episode is never the first one.
[00:22:05] <Bronzdragon> I noticed!
[00:22:15] <Bronzdragon> I jut didn't notice that it was screenshots!
[00:25:56] <Cybylt> Portable 3rd also did something that somewhat bugged me but makes sense
[00:26:04] <Cybylt> it changed all the weapons damage numbers that you see
[00:26:18] <Cybylt> instead of stating them outright they're on a scale of 50 to 200/250
[00:27:06] <Cybylt> P3rd was also so easy that I didn't need to upgrade my armor til zinogre
[00:28:33] <Cybylt> Azuros did next to no damage and can be killed by the very first weapons in under 5 minutes in P3rd as well
[00:28:49] <Cybylt> Jaggi you may have to upgrade for sharpness but that was about it
[00:39:14] <Apsup> For an old game Sysytem Shock 2 is surpisingly atmospheric. Also it has psycic monkeys.

[01:46:28] <Bronzdragon> Hai again yoshokatana.
[01:51:27] <yoshokatana> hola
[01:52:03] <Bronzdragon> Star Trek is fun at times.
[01:52:08] <Bronzdragon> And those times are all the times
[01:54:29] <aria> ...
[01:54:36] <aria> Recap episodes too, Bronz?
[01:55:05] <Bronzdragon> ... Okay, one episode so far was bad
[01:55:16] <Bronzdragon> But it had a funny joke at the end!

[02:56:33] <Cybylt> Joakim Mogren is apparently a real person, and not a troll name that's an anagram of Kojima and reference to "Project Ogre"
[02:56:36] <Cybylt> http://i.neoseeker.com
[02:56:46] <Cybylt> he showed up to talk about Phantom Pain
[02:57:18] <Cybylt> or the more likely thing, it's all one big trolling attempt my Kojima
[03:12:57] <aria> =P
[03:13:04] <aria> Why do you think he has bandages?
[03:13:22] <aria> So you can't look up the name of the actor
[03:13:32] <Cybylt> probably
[03:13:42] <Cybylt> I just think it's funny how far they're going with this
[03:13:44] <aria> Is there video of this?
[03:13:56] <Cybylt> not that I know of
[03:14:03] <Cybylt> aside from the vga trailer of the game
[03:14:25] <aria> If he turns around fully, Blender can probably make a pretty ok facial mold
[03:23:45] <aria> So with PC games..
[03:23:54] <aria> how do speed runs work when it comes to load times?
[03:32:25] <Cybylt> some people factor them in, some people dont, I suppose
[03:32:35] <aria> So...
[03:32:53] <aria> Kago who did the game in 50m on PS3 where the load times are worst
[03:32:59] <aria> could've probably done the game in 45 on PC
[03:33:11] <aria> Maybe less with the 60FPS hack if that's allowed
[03:39:14] <Cybylt> how would 60fps help?
[03:39:34] <aria> Makes almost every animation in the game half a frame faster
[03:40:02] <aria> (or 1 frame at 60FPS)
[03:40:38] <Cybylt> uhhhh... isn't that the other way around?
[03:41:07] <aria> Half a frame slower?
[03:41:09] <aria> Nah
[03:41:09] <Cybylt> if anything everything would run slower because the extra frames just means the animation is shown in more frames
[03:41:40] <aria> Oh, well yes, everything has twice the frames
[03:42:06] <aria> But you skip half a frame if it was running at 30FPS in terms of time at the end of most animations
[03:42:26] <Cybylt> So either it's slower, or just the same speed just everything motion follows through smoother
[03:42:43] <aria> That is the case when things are timed for time
[03:42:49] <aria> Dark Souls is timed for frames
[03:44:14] <Cybylt> Speaking of Dark Souls I was surprised the "easy mode" discussion was still up
[03:44:18] <aria> It used to be that some animations were actually longer, but it led to all kinds of falling through the floor
[03:44:32] <Cybylt> and I think people really don't understand how the difficulty works in dark souls
[03:44:50] <Cybylt> making an "easy mode" would have to be more than simply lowering enemy damage
[03:45:52] <Cybylt> it just comes across as "I haven't played this game but easy should be added because we should cater to everyone"
[03:46:05] <Cybylt> you know, because there's no such thing as variety in tastes
[03:46:16] <aria> though jumps are also shorter at 60FPS, and since you're faster while jumping, you lose some time. But that's like super trivial
[03:49:07] <Cybylt> and it's not like Dark Souls is demanding from a technical standpoint
[03:49:24] <aria> How do you mean?
[03:49:44] <Cybylt> it doesn't take a whole lot of skill to pull off damaging attacks
[03:49:52] <aria> Right
[03:49:52] <Cybylt> You have R1 and R2 and that's it
[03:50:19] <Cybylt> it's not like DMC or Bayonetta or the like where you need to have a lot of coordination to pull off decent attacks
[03:50:51] <aria> You need to time l2 and B
[03:51:10] <Cybylt> that's the extent of it though
[03:51:25] <Cybylt> and it's not like attacks come at lightning speeds
[03:51:26] <aria> Hrm..
[03:51:43] <Cybylt> 90% of the danger is in environmental hazards
[03:52:00] <Cybylt> which is not something that can simply be removed by toning down damage
[03:53:04] <aria> Well there are a few input things that are hard
[03:53:26] <aria> d-padding to get out of stagger
[03:53:30] <aria> magic cancel
[03:53:32] <aria> that kind of stuff
[04:21:47] -!- athenian200 has quit [Ping timeout]
[04:23:36] <Cybylt> those are more little bonus things you can find rather than intrinsic pieces of gameplay like lag cancelling is in other games
[04:27:28] <aria> So..
[04:27:34] <aria> how would you feel if Dark Souls for Android
[04:27:36] -!- athenian200 [athenian200!~athenian2@hide-D0ABF562.dllstx.fios.verizon.net] has joined #geeknights
[04:27:38] <aria> or Xbox
[04:27:48] <aria> had pay real money for in-game stats
[04:28:11] <aria> so pay $1 for +1 STR
[04:34:27] <Cybylt> that'd be terrible and I'd stab whoever tried to implement it
[04:34:43] <aria> Really?
[04:34:53] <aria> But your overall level also goes up
[04:35:12] <Cybylt> So? That turns dark souls into pay to win
[04:35:15] <aria> I'd like it, since it keeps people from discovering the save editor and cheating
[04:35:23] <Cybylt> ahahahha
[04:35:31] <Cybylt> if anything it'd make them more determined to find it
[04:35:36] <aria> Nah, since you can't play against anyone who didn't pay or are equally matched legit
[04:35:42] <Cybylt> nothing gets people to do something more than not having to put money into it
[04:38:35] <aria> But by that logic, isn't it currently grind to win?
[04:38:40] <aria> (which Dark Souls is not..)
[04:39:18] <Cybylt> Guess you have a point there, but I still don't like it

[20:00:50] <GauntletWizard> Morning, all
[20:10:45] <Apsup> Morning, if you so say.
[20:11:01] <Bronzdragon> Sim City generated a deal where I could export trash for 0 dollars
[20:11:17] <Bronzdragon> So I imported the max amount, right, to get loads of money, then export it again?
[20:11:32] <Bronzdragon> They think it's a bad idea because "You don't even have landfills!"
[20:11:35] <Bronzdragon> Pfft, who needs landfills
[20:13:06] <Apsup> You bought Sim City...?
[20:14:19] <Bronzdragon> I... 'bought' Sim City 4

[23:29:55] <Cybylt> Monster Hunter in wonderful jazz format
[23:30:30] <Cybylt> specifically, big band jazz

[23:52:22] <Apsup> Hy Cybylt, didn't notice you. I was playing. (Though not Monster Hunter).
[23:53:08] <Cybylt> Not a problem
[23:53:27] <Cybylt> Goddamn control change
[23:53:32] <Apsup> I got my first ever monster capture today in 3rd Portable.
[23:53:54] <Cybylt> playing ME2 now and they switch X and B on the planet select stuff
[23:54:08] <Cybylt> Nice
[23:54:16] <aria> Turns out this old case I had is too small for the motherboard I got
[23:54:30] <aria> So I guess Im waiting 2-5 work days for a new case..
[23:54:42] <Cybylt> and Portable 3rd has no required captures
[23:54:51] <aria> Also, I found a TV-card. Not sure what to use it for, but it's there.
[23:54:55] <Cybylt> it is by far the most simplified in the series
[23:55:04] <Cybylt> That sucks, a lot
[23:56:24] <Cybylt> Funny thing, I failed at capture last night because I got P3rd and TriG mixed up in my head
[23:56:35] <Cybylt> P3rd uses white flags for all big monster hunts
[23:56:40] <Cybylt> TriG still has captures
[23:58:43] <Cybylt> just wanted to get familiar with the 3ds controls again before the english release
[23:59:03] <Apsup> Well at least capture is always an option, even when not mantadory. And isn't it so that capture gives more/better loot?
[23:59:39] <Cybylt> More drops, or a higher chance of rare ones
[23:59:51] <Cybylt> especially with an armor skill that boosts capture loot
