[12:06:30] <Cybylt> Hello Bronzdragon and Apsup and GauntletWizard
[12:07:03] <Bronzdragon> Hey Cybylt
[12:07:16] <Bronzdragon> Who I totally didn't momentarily confuse for Catolf
[12:07:54] <Cybylt> Catolf?
[12:08:26] <Bronzdragon> ... it's a cat
[12:08:37] <Cybylt> I got a cold and it destroyed my sleep schedule
[12:08:38] <Bronzdragon> Or I should say she
[12:08:49] <Bronzdragon> Welcome to me, one week ago!
[12:08:54] <Cybylt> oh boy
[12:09:30] <Cybylt> I got all into The Old Republic again too, which makes me a bad person or something
[12:10:01] <Bronzdragon> I'm pretty sure that's a rumor started by people who hate fun.
[12:10:46] <Cybylt> Downloaded a buttload of Fast Karate to listen to while doing the grindier bits. Unless the two friends I actually got to play it are on then I'm on skype chat with them.
[12:11:10] <Cybylt> But one of them has never played any... I guess the best way to put it is more traditional MMO.
[12:11:17] <Bronzdragon> You are lucky, having not yet listened to every fast karate.
[12:11:32] <Cybylt> His entire MMO experience up til now has been Phantasy Star
[12:11:32] <Bronzdragon> What would be a less traditional MMO?
[12:11:44] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[12:11:50] <Cybylt> On consoles
[12:12:02] <Bronzdragon> Oh my!
[12:12:14] <Cybylt> That said, til TOR I never played an anime longer than a week
[12:12:27] <Cybylt> and after months of play have just now learned the joys of custom keybindings
[12:12:46] <Bronzdragon> Wait, "Anime"?
[12:13:04] <Cybylt> words mixed in my head because of hearing things
[12:13:06] <Cybylt> MMO
[12:13:29] <Bronzdragon> I know, stop trying to do so many things at once
[12:13:43] <Cybylt> also most of the mmos I have tried were of the bad free to play types published by aeria and the like
[12:14:18] <Cybylt> Spiral Knights I played a bit more of, but it got progressively worse as it was patched
[12:14:39] <Cybylt> I liked it more when it pretty much just was 4 sword adventures with tiny robot people
[12:14:47] <Cybylt> and now it's cash shop addled terribleness
[12:15:40] <Cybylt> but I can never be too mad at it, the art is done by Ian McConville and he's a pretty cool guy
[12:19:42] <Bronzdragon> I played spiral knights once
[12:19:45] <Bronzdragon> It was confusing
[12:21:02] <Cybylt> It is at first
[12:21:07] <Cybylt> it helps that I had three friends with me
[12:21:38] <Bronzdragon> Ah, i only had one
[12:21:41] <Bronzdragon> that was my mistake
[12:21:48] <Cybylt> One I feel I should apologize to because it ended up being the game that comes along once in a while that she gets completely hooked on. And the cash shop just rolled out at the time
[12:25:00] <Cybylt> I got back into it for a little bit last year
[12:25:01] <Cybylt> http://media.spiralknights.com
[12:25:04] <Cybylt> made that guy's armor
[12:25:49] <Bronzdragon> Like, you did?
[12:27:30] <Cybylt> In the game I did. Which was a bit of an achievement for me since his dungeon is after the end game of what I was playing before that
[12:27:53] <Cybylt> and I had to start over because the last time I played before that was in beta
[12:30:05] <Cybylt> I read part 7 of JoJo's, Steel Ball Run
[12:30:19] <Cybylt> Stands get so awesome, and so ridiculously specific
[12:30:59] <Cybylt> and it makes me want to play the fighter more because true to the source material, Johnny Joestar is paralyzed below the waist in the fighter
[12:31:48] <Cybylt> unless he's on his horse at best he can prop himself on his knees
[12:31:54] <Cybylt> http://storage.siliconera.com
[12:32:19] <Apsup> I wish to declare here, that the final boss of Strange Journey, is hard. Really hard.
[12:32:47] <Bronzdragon> Oh my
[12:32:49] <Cybylt> Mem Aleph?
[12:32:51] <Bronzdragon> that's pretty crazy
[12:33:01] <Cybylt> http://24.media.tumblr.com
[12:33:01] <Apsup> Mem Aleph, yes.
[12:33:10] <Cybylt> luckily he can teleport once he gets Tusk form 3
[12:33:12] <Bronzdragon> Also, my accounts keep getting seized, geeze guys.
[12:33:26] <Bronzdragon> Teleporting would help, yes.
[12:34:17] <Cybylt> Wonder how they're gonna pull off his power restrictions though...
[12:34:24] <Cybylt> http://24.media.tumblr.com
[12:34:51] <Bronzdragon> "Power restrictions?
[12:34:56] <Cybylt> His stand is Tusk, it lets him shoot his nails as bullets, with a weak, imperfect rotation they grow back almost instantly and act like bullets
[12:35:15] <Cybylt> with a perfect rotation he gains control of the holes they leave
[12:35:34] <Bronzdragon> ...
[12:35:48] <Cybylt> and if he say shoots the ground then moves the holes to an enemy the holes will take the effect of the shot landing on that spot
[12:36:00] <Cybylt> but the nails take a minute to regrow with those shots
[12:36:19] <Cybylt> if he shoots himself with that perfect rotation, he can teleport the parts of him he shoots
[12:36:31] <Cybylt> unless he shoots his head, then it transports his upper half
[12:37:10] <Cybylt> honestly the bullet holes he can control act more like wormholes with their own event horizon that just wrecks whatever they're touching, except him
[12:37:48] <Cybylt> The final technique can only be done from horseback, because it works off of math and physics to fuck shit up
[12:38:04] <Bronzdragon> I don't understand, but somehow I think that's intentional
[12:38:11] <Cybylt> It is
[12:39:08] <Cybylt> it uses the fundamental ideology behind mounted combat like jousting to use the momentum and force of the horse's run to add more power to the spin of his attack
[12:39:34] <Bronzdragon> Oh okay, that makes sense then.
[12:39:45] <Cybylt> resulting in a spin so strong it breaks dimensional barriers like the ones generated by Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
[12:40:27] <Cybylt> or D4C for short
[12:41:03] <Cybylt> basically the user is able to effectively negate damage because he could transport himself to alternate realities, body swap with himself and come back to the fight good as new
[12:41:04] <Bronzdragon> D4C generates dimensional barriers?
[12:41:47] <Cybylt> it gets powered up with what they called Love Train to create some kind of barrier that could only beaten by MATH
[12:42:16] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[12:42:39] <Cybylt> so first it ripped a hole into the barrier, fucked him up, then when he'd go to get a replacement body the centrifugal force would pull him back into the hole made by the attack
[12:42:40] <Cybylt> forever
[12:43:16] <Cybylt> http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net
[12:43:20] <Cybylt> also D4C looks like this
[12:43:43] <Cybylt> it may not have been the craziest power in part 7 either
[12:44:16] <Cybylt> http://i116.photobucket.com
[12:44:27] <Cybylt> also, the user of D4C is the president of the united states
[12:44:52] <Cybylt> who has the most patriotic scars ever, nevermind the fact that this is in 1890 so that flag is very very off
[12:45:34] <Cybylt> and his name is Funny Valentine
[12:45:42] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[12:45:56] <Cybylt> Diego may have had the best power
[12:46:11] <Cybylt> his power was dinosaur... lycanthropy... ish thing
[12:46:31] <Cybylt> he could turn into a raptor, and he could turn other things into dinosaurs too
[12:46:50] <Cybylt> generally a carnivore roughly the size of whatever creature was turned
[12:47:42] <Bronzdragon> ...
[12:47:54] <Bronzdragon> That is indeed, the very bets power
[12:48:06] <Cybylt> kinda funny off screen use of D4C though
[12:48:20] <Cybylt> Valentine was originally a short, fat guy
[12:48:38] <Cybylt> as soon as he got that body swapping power he found a version of himself that's ripped
[12:48:53] <Cybylt> and he took that body
[12:49:58] <Cybylt> Johnny's Tusk is an ugly little bastard
[12:49:59] <Cybylt> https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com
[12:50:07] <Cybylt> http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net
[12:50:10] <Cybylt> that becomes a robot
[12:50:28] <Cybylt> http://images.wikia.com
[12:50:35] <Cybylt> and remains a robot but now has legs
[12:50:50] <Cybylt> and finally it becomes a suit of armor
[12:50:52] <Cybylt> http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net
[12:51:33] <Bronzdragon> This is a logical progression
[12:51:58] <Cybylt> that it is
[12:52:11] <Cybylt> Part 8 hero's stand
[12:52:11] <Cybylt> http://images.wikia.com
[12:52:16] <Cybylt> Soft & Wet
[12:52:51] <Bronzdragon> Okay, now you're just posting pictures of robots and saying random words
[12:53:48] <Cybylt> Nah, that's Josuke's stand, Soft & Wet. I dunno why but a lot of them got more robotic in 7 and 8
[12:55:33] <Cybylt> http://i.yai.bz
[12:55:52] <Cybylt> there, Star Platinum from part 3, which I think was the first stand shown
[12:56:03] <Cybylt> https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com
[12:56:37] <Bronzdragon> He is quite green, yes
[12:57:10] <Cybylt> http://24.media.tumblr.com
[12:57:16] <Cybylt> and part 4's Killer Queen
[13:00:45] <Cybylt> though I suppose the most iconic character, aside from Jotaro and Star Platinum
[13:00:49] <Cybylt> is Dio and The World
[13:00:50] <Cybylt> https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com
[13:00:57] <Cybylt> or, more popularly, ZA WARUDO
[13:01:06] <Bronzdragon> Yup.
[13:02:07] <Cybylt> http://25.media.tumblr.com
[13:02:11] <Cybylt> that new fighter sure is pretty
[13:03:32] <Cybylt> http://cdn.gamerant.com
[13:04:32] <Cybylt> which will, according to leaks, have 45 playable characters
[13:05:10] <Cybylt> Too many people from Part 5 however, not enough from 7
[13:05:22] <Cybylt> they could at least include Hot Pants
[13:06:40] <Cybylt> Iggy is kind of a lame choice too, especially when you don't have Pet Shop to fight him with
[13:07:45] <Cybylt> I really want to try Pannacotta Fugo with Purple Haze though, Purple Haze looks awesome
[13:08:06] <Bronzdragon> Hey I'm back!
[13:08:19] <Cybylt> welcome back
[13:10:33] <Cybylt> Oh, and apparently everyone has a unique line mocking Josuke's pompadour(otherwise he couldn't use his rage mode and specials tied to it)
[13:10:46] <Cybylt> Josuke loves his hair
[13:11:22] <Cybylt> certain matchups get unique lines, and alt colors are based on the different cover art from the series
[13:11:34] <Bronzdragon> ...
[13:11:43] <Bronzdragon> This game sounds really dedicated, in the best way
[13:13:13] <Cybylt> there's videos showing how even walking, ducking and jumping animations are pulled from panels
[13:13:37] <Cybylt> every single attack was in the manga at some point
[13:14:28] <Bronzdragon> ... they may be taking it a bit far
[13:15:27] <Cybylt> it's a lot of love for JoJo
[13:15:36] <Cybylt> especially the fabulousness of the pillar men
[13:17:29] <Cybylt> http://24.media.tumblr.com
[13:17:43] <Bronzdragon> That's pretty good
[13:18:06] <Cybylt> That's a pretty good example of it
[13:18:26] <Cybylt> Polnareff was one of the first they brought up with how much they're holding to it
[13:18:55] <Cybylt> They also said it will have something for the hardcore fighters, because JoJo is all about reading the enemy
[13:19:54] <Cybylt> Of course favorites like road roller and jack knife are back as well
[13:20:07] <Cybylt> http://www.all-fiction.net
[13:20:26] <Cybylt> and a love for on screen written sound effects
[13:21:49] <Cybylt> https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com
[13:25:17] <Cybylt> and I need to get some sleep
[13:25:41] -!- Cybylt has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[13:30:19] <Apsup> Strange Journey, done.
[13:35:04] <Bronzdragon> Was it odd?
[13:36:43] <Apsup> Not as strange as one would expect.
[13:37:11] <Bronzdragon> Indeed?

[14:42:25] <Bronzdragon> Oh shit, apreche!
[14:49:38] <Apsup> Welcome back.
[14:52:38] <apreche> yeah, server was restarted soem time ago for linode maintenance
[14:53:19] <Bronzdragon> Stupid linode with their /maintanance/
[14:57:06] <Apsup> Blah, lost a match of dota. My goal of 1:1 win-loose ratio is yet again little bit futher away.
[14:58:37] <Bronzdragon> If matchmaking was prefect, you'd never get a 1:1 win-lose ratio.
[14:59:01] <Bronzdragon> Win-loss, actually, thinking about it now.
[14:59:52] <Apsup> Actually in perfect matchmaking everyone has 1:1 win-loss ratio. If you are matched against equally skilled players then it's pretty much 50-50 who wins.
[15:01:53] <Bronzdragon> Ah, yes, but you're starting with a deficit.
[15:02:24] <Bronzdragon> Also, it's possible for your skill to change over time. Even with perfect matchmaking, it's impossible to know your skill beforehand. You
[15:02:42] <Bronzdragon> You'd be in a match that's too easy once before being in the correct one.
