[09:54:33] <Apsup> Mornin
[09:54:58] <Bronzdragon> How you doin'?
[09:55:18] <Apsup> Brewing some morning coffee so good.
[09:56:38] <Bronzdragon> Man, I could go for some good coffee right now
[09:56:44] <Bronzdragon> But the kitchen is sooooo faaaaar
[09:56:54] <Bronzdragon> I need someone to come bring it for me.
[09:58:15] <Apsup> And here I though I was lazy.
[09:59:31] <Bronzdragon> To be fair, the kitchen is actually realy far.

[14:53:21] <Cybylt> Hello Apsup, Bronzdragon
[14:55:26] <Cybylt> I was informed that the rumors of the next xbox requiring a constant connection are totally fine with all of first world europe because every single one of you has at least high speed connections if not fiber-optic lines and pay on average $20 a month for said connections
[14:56:12] <Bronzdragon> ... I do
[14:56:32] <Cybylt> And it goes on all day every day without fail?
[14:56:54] <Cybylt> as if you live in, as he put it "a technological paradise"
[14:56:58] <Bronzdragon> Pretty much.
[14:58:09] <Cybylt> and this applies for the majority of the population?
[14:58:20] <Bronzdragon> Out of my sample size of 1...
[14:58:22] <Bronzdragon> Yes
[14:58:50] <Cybylt> 1 out of 1 is pretty convincing numbers
[14:59:44] <Cybylt> Out here outside of major cities it's usually pretty tough to find a solid connection, particularly by a cable line
[15:00:06] <Bronzdragon> Internet infrastructure in America is indeed worse
[15:00:16] <Bronzdragon> But I live in the Netherlands, so Internet is pretty cool here
[15:00:26] <Bronzdragon> That said
[15:00:44] <Bronzdragon> I am kind of disagreeing with you, only because agreeing i stoo easy
[15:01:55] <Cybylt> Too easy?
[15:04:42] <Bronzdragon> Yeah, everyone's bashing on microsoft for this idea
[15:04:45] <Bronzdragon> And it's pretty dumb.
[15:04:59] <Bronzdragon> So it's really easy to dislike the idea
[15:06:11] <Cybylt> I'm surprised nobody brought up the possibility of microsoft's own servers being unavailable. It's always complaints about the user-end connection
[15:07:46] <Cybylt> I mean that was the problem of the often brought up SimCity and Diablo 3
[15:08:17] <Bronzdragon> True enough
[15:09:20] <Cybylt> Hell EA's PC games in general have that problem, Mass Effect 3 for example. If you have DLC and the server is down it'll say it can't authenticate your purchases so you can't play
[15:09:27] <Cybylt> Unless you delete those addons
[15:09:58] <Cybylt> in some cases when it does come back up it'll bug out and say you have to repurchase the content
[15:10:06] <Cybylt> even if it was previously free
[15:13:15] <Cybylt> That said, XBL as a whole has been fairly reliable
[15:13:54] <Bronzdragon> It did have some outages though...
[15:13:59] <Bronzdragon> Sometimes that does happen
[15:14:04] <Cybylt> right
[15:14:14] <Cybylt> especially early on
[15:14:25] <Cybylt> and whenever something changed
[15:14:40] <Cybylt> and there will be changes when adapting to a new console
[15:15:28] <Cybylt> also not reliable enough to justify the main menu being plastered with adverts when you're already paying to play online
[15:17:10] <Cybylt> or how its primary competitors offer most of the same services for free
[15:28:15] <Cybylt> http://ecx.images-amazon.com
[15:28:29] <Cybylt> 56" wide poster
[15:28:49] <Cybylt> I wish they had the one with the Tri G creatures on amazon
[15:45:16] <Bronzdragon> That's a lot of monsters
[15:45:25] <Bronzdragon> What's the pink orb on the right side?
[16:15:29] <Cybylt> Great Thunderbug
[16:15:43] <Cybylt> they were a mob in one zone
[16:16:15] <Cybylt> they come back with Zinogre since their bodies act as a kind of hive for them
[16:16:29] <Bronzdragon> Those words mean nothing to me, sorry
[16:17:54] <Cybylt> a big wolf that can channel the static electricity created by bugs by having millions of them live in the little cracks and holes in its shell
[16:18:20] <Bronzdragon> The... wolf has a shell?
[16:19:21] <Cybylt> http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net
[16:19:23] <Cybylt> Yes
[16:19:42] <Bronzdragon> Okay
[16:19:50] <Bronzdragon> That's not really a wolf, but fair enough.
[16:19:51] <Bronzdragon> I see
[16:20:05] <Cybylt> wolf-ish thing
[16:20:19] <Cybylt> it growls and howls and has fur
[16:20:23] <Cybylt> wolf-wyvern
[16:20:31] <Bronzdragon> It looks pretty cool
[16:20:56] <Cybylt> http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net
[16:21:04] <Cybylt> has a pretty cool variant too
[16:22:06] <Cybylt> lives in the tundra and instead of the thunderbugs/fulgur bugs it has bugs that exclusively eat the dragonfell berry, a key component in the dragon shot
[16:22:20] <Cybylt> a bowgun shell that deals "dragon" damage, whatever that is
[16:22:30] <Bronzdragon> I assume fire
[16:22:35] <Bronzdragon> Or "pain", maybe?
[16:22:40] <Cybylt> there is fire
[16:23:10] <Cybylt> it was never particularly clear what it was, just that it is depicted as black lightning and is a component of elder dragon attacks instead of them being purely physical/standard elements
[16:23:37] <Tiwi> oh god
[16:23:38] <Tiwi> I'm back
[16:23:43] <Bronzdragon> Oh tiwi.
[16:23:49] <Bronzdragon> We're just talking about Monster Hunter.
[16:24:07] <Cybylt> Hello
[16:25:11] <Cybylt> I quite like the third generation variants more than the old ones. In previous ones it was the old "it's a different color therefor it's stronger"
[16:25:14] <Cybylt> and that was the end of it
[16:25:37] <Cybylt> now that have new attack patterns, attacks and motions exclusive to them or have different properties altogether
[16:26:41] <Bronzdragon> That does sound like more fun
[16:28:00] -!- Tiwi has quit [No route to host]
[16:28:05] <Bronzdragon> =O
[16:28:08] <Bronzdragon> Tiwi hates us
[16:28:15] <Cybylt> He does
[16:28:31] <Cybylt> Black Diablos seems to be an exception as far as I can tell, I haven't noticed new attacks from her at least
[16:30:23] <Cybylt> also not a big fan of the flagship monster of 3U
[16:30:39] <Cybylt> http://25.media.tumblr.com
[16:31:30] <Cybylt> I guess not so much because of the monster himself, he's a different approach to the brute wyverns who have almost exclusive been chargers up til now
[16:31:32] <Bronzdragon> But purple and gree
[16:31:50] <Cybylt> but his weapons kinda break the multiplayer
[16:32:01] <Cybylt> all of his weapons have the new element Slime
[16:32:09] <Cybylt> Slime is the stuff on his arms and horn there
[16:32:22] <Cybylt> it's explosive goo
[16:33:11] <Cybylt> it works kinda like a status effect, you attack and it slowly builds up and then you get an explosion that deals fixed damag
[16:33:12] <Cybylt> e
[16:33:29] <Cybylt> thing is when you have four people using weapons with slime you have a LOT of explosions
[16:33:38] <Cybylt> which just wreck monsters in little time
[16:34:19] <Bronzdragon> I see
[16:34:28] <Cybylt> probably wont be in future titles
[16:34:53] <Cybylt> since it was primarily developed on 3DS the game was made to be doable solo
[16:35:16] <Cybylt> G rank could be a bit much to that end but it's still possible
[16:35:54] <Cybylt> so it was balanced with not four people using it in mind
[16:36:03] <Bronzdragon> I see
[16:36:10] <Cybylt> and the result is totally broken weapons when used by a full party
[16:36:41] <Cybylt> also his horn looks kinda retarded
[16:36:52] <Cybylt> http://24.media.tumblr.com
[16:37:20] <Bronzdragon> only slightly
[16:42:55] <Cybylt> http://2.bp.blogspot.com
[16:43:08] <Cybylt> My favorite fight, at least from a thematic standpoint
[16:44:21] <Cybylt> You fight him from the boat using canons and balistae, when he gets close you can jump onto his back to attack weak points in the fin
[16:44:35] <Cybylt> and mine ores and materials from his back
[16:47:03] <Cybylt> you can also fire roped harpoons to hold him in place for a moment or a giant gong to stun him out of doing a big atttack
[16:47:12] <Cybylt> as well as the dragonator on the front of the ship
[16:47:15] <Cybylt> a barbed drill
[16:47:23] <Cybylt> a massive barbed drill
[16:53:11] <Bronzdragon> Building a house of cards is really hard.

[17:37:22] <Bronz|food> Hey Aria!
[17:37:25] <Apsup> Group of PCs go to hell to get the soul of a recently dead princess back. They succeed, but to get the soul they had to promice to form a cult to worship the lord of hell.
[17:38:00] <Cybylt> fun
[17:38:29] Bronz|food is now known as Bronzdragon
[17:38:58] <Apsup> I got to play the role of a god, that's something that every GM wants to do.
[17:39:21] <Bronzdragon> Don't they anyway?
[18:31:24] <AriaMibbit> I work at IBM now
[18:31:27] <AriaMibbit> we have a lot of security
[18:31:30] <AriaMibbit> 's pretty swell
[18:31:39] <Bronzdragon> How much security?
[18:31:44] <Bronzdragon> Do you have your own badge?
[18:31:54] <Bronzdragon> Armed guards?
[18:31:56] <AriaMibbit> You beep your name card every doorway you go through, and if you do, 2+ people run over
[18:32:08] <AriaMibbit> don't*
[18:32:11] <AriaMibbit> if you don't*
[18:32:14] <Bronzdragon> Did one of them ask you about your sweetroll?
[18:32:20] <AriaMibbit> Not yet
[18:32:34] <AriaMibbit> Some of them even have shades and those ear things
[18:32:35] <Bronzdragon> It'd be pretty cool if they did.
[18:33:13] <AriaMibbit> A lot of people bike to work, but they still have to search every vehicle
[18:33:23] <AriaMibbit> But there really isn't anywhere to hide stuff on a bike
[18:33:46] <AriaMibbit> anyway, so they lift the bike and look under it, and then you're good to go =P
[18:34:00] <Bronzdragon> =P
[18:34:05] <Bronzdragon> But you took the buss, right?
[18:34:09] <AriaMibbit> Yes
[18:34:12] <Bronzdragon> Did... did they lift the bus?
[18:34:16] <AriaMibbit> =P
[18:34:25] <AriaMibbit> They don't need to search vehicles they know of
[18:34:39] <AriaMibbit> Only if you arrive in something you haven't done the paper work for. Such as taxis
[18:35:03] <Bronzdragon> Or bikes?
[18:35:26] <AriaMibbit> Well you can just give them the bike for 10 minutes and then that bike is "verified" forever
[18:35:27] <Robobuntoo> You can't for ten minutes!
[18:36:13] <AriaMibbit> It's really big too..
[19:22:56] <GauntletWizard> I am going to desert my dessert in the desert
[19:23:24] <Bronzdragon> Call it operation des(s)ert.
[19:23:59] <Bronzdragon> I like how desert and dessert are pronounced the same, but desert is pronounced differently
[20:05:16] <GauntletWizard> I've been through a dessert on a horse with no name
[20:05:34] <GauntletWizard> (have I mentioned that horses love sugar?)
[20:07:11] <AriaMibbit> I get an @ibm email tomorrow hopefully, so that's cool. I still want a @google email though =P
[20:07:40] <Bronzdragon> YEAH GAUNTLET!
[20:07:52] <Bronzdragon> I'll accept @gooble
[20:14:43] <GauntletWizard> heh
[20:15:14] <Bronzdragon> ... google does own gooble.com, right?
[20:25:00] <AriaMibbit> Yes.
[20:25:11] <AriaMibbit> And if they don't, he'll make sure of it now
[20:26:31] <GauntletWizard> Nope
[20:26:43] <GauntletWizard> (whois database is public, look it up your own damn selves)
[20:27:53] <Bronzdragon> Too much effort
[20:28:05] <AriaMibbit> Wait huh?
[20:28:06] <AriaMibbit> ...
[20:28:11] <AriaMibbit> Ima go buy goobles
[20:28:17] <Bronzdragon> I'm for this
[20:28:54] <AriaMibbit> Namecheap owns it =P
[20:30:46] <AriaMibbit> ...
[20:30:52] <AriaMibbit> I see what you did there, GOOGLE!
[20:31:01] <AriaMibbit> If you try to visit gooble.com in Chrome
[20:31:09] <Bronzdragon> Myes?
[20:31:09] <AriaMibbit> it says like "Oh no, you wanna go to gooGle!"
[20:31:18] <Bronzdragon> Facism
[20:31:23] <Bronzdragon> Stupid Mozilla
[20:31:26] <AriaMibbit> and then you press "No no, I meant goobles", it takes you to gobbles.com =P
[20:31:40] <Bronzdragon> ... is gobbles a porn site?
[20:31:48] <AriaMibbit> Food.

[21:33:33] <Bronzdragon> The... volcano?
[21:34:59] <Cybylt> So you started playing Disgaea?
[21:35:32] <Cybylt> I thought most people discovered it at about fifteen years old, GauntletWizard
[21:36:44] <Bronzdragon> What about this guy, yah?
[21:37:28] <GauntletWizard> Cybylt: Actually, that comes from a discussionof the latest fire emblem
[21:37:36] <GauntletWizard> which apparently has a loli character
[21:38:07] <Cybylt> and they call her Etna? I haven't played the latest Fire Emblem, but there has been a loli named Etna in an srpg before
[21:38:11] <Cybylt> so this is mildly confusing
[21:38:13] <GauntletWizard> no
[21:38:22] <GauntletWizard> I have no exp with the new fire emblem
[21:38:38] <GauntletWizard> so I just interjected with the cannonical hot loli
[21:39:15] <Cybylt> ah

[22:04:34] <Bronzdragon> Okay, I miss Aria now.
[22:25:54] <GauntletWizard> awww
[22:25:57] <GauntletWizard> I miss aria too
[22:26:05] <GauntletWizard> (probably not quite the same way, but)

[23:35:23] <Bronzdragon> Oh, what's this now?
[23:45:45] <Cybylt> I think I liked the bikehorn one more

[23:46:11] <Cybylt> and I made this today
[23:46:12] <Cybylt> far left
[23:47:17] <Bronzdragon> I didn't know you were taht good at 3d modling!
[23:48:35] <Cybylt> Yeah, let's go with that, that's what I did
[23:48:42] <Cybylt> something mildly productive
[23:49:02] <Cybylt> not played monster hunter and killed giant leech monsters til I had stuff to make their armor
[23:49:10] <Bronzdragon> Indeed!
[23:49:16] <Bronzdragon> Good job!

[23:51:31] <Cybylt> the baby ones are disgustingly adorable
[23:52:12] <Bronzdragon> Disgustingly adorable are the correct words
[23:55:48] <Cybylt> Time to start making status effect weapons to make use of that status +2 the armor gives
