[09:27:36] <Apsup> normal
[09:27:45] <Bronz|work> Are you?
[09:27:46] <Apsup> Also, my aim if off.
[09:27:49] <Bronz|work> Really though, are you?
[09:28:19] <Apsup> I have constructed my image of normality around myself so, obviously.
[09:28:39] <Bronz|work> How do you enjoy being normal?
[09:48:14] <Bronz|work> I, for one, enjoy it greatly.

[11:19:54] <Coby> Hello
[11:20:12] <Bronz|work> Hey Coby!
[11:20:21] <Coby> Hi Bronz
[11:20:41] <Bronz|work> How are you doing?
[11:20:58] <Coby> Good, taking a bit longer to recover from this week's market than usual.
[11:21:15] <Coby> I think I pulled something carrying a propane tank for the gyros stand
[11:21:18] <Coby> how are you?
[11:22:44] <Coby> brb

[11:27:23] -!- Coby [Coby!6347dac9@hide-EA88667A.org] has joined #geeknights
[11:27:48] <Coby> Switched from laptop to PC and it's being all weird about it
[11:28:43] <Coby> My old 360 controller feels so weird now after a week of PS4
[11:29:00] <Coby> both in it being used a lot, and the shape and button layout
[11:30:04] -!- Coby_ has quit [Ping timeout: 180 seconds]
[11:49:08] <Bronz|work> Hmm...
[11:49:14] <Bronz|work> Is the PS4 controller nice?
[12:00:44] <Coby> It's pretty comfy, the broader edges and extra heft over the previous models do a lot for comfort
[12:01:07] <Coby> they still need to work on better triggers, though
[12:02:17] <Coby> I'm so confused
[12:02:54] <Coby> this guy was brainwashed by a dragon and straight up vanished in the dragoon plot line and now in the main story, released almost a year afterward here he is like nothing happened
[12:03:15] <Coby> just a throwaway line about not being the only Azure Dragoon in the room
[12:05:52] <Apsup> NOooooo!
[12:05:55] <Apsup> No spoilers.!
[12:05:57] <Apsup> PLZ
[12:06:00] <Apsup> Shut up.
[12:06:06] <Apsup> I should play.l
[12:13:51] <Coby> Sorry Apsup
[12:13:57] <Coby> It was just really weird
[12:25:20] <Bronz|work> What even...
[12:30:22] <Coby> main antagonist of my job quest who I'm pretty sure I killed popped up in the latest story patch
[12:30:29] <Coby> about a year after
[12:30:37] <Bronz|work> What game is this though?
[12:42:41] <Coby> FFXIV
[12:55:01] <Coby> And now I wait for Nine. Assuming Nine still plays, I haven't been on in about a month
[12:58:47] <Apsup> I haven't been playing actively for a while now either.
[13:00:32] <Coby> I pretty much dropped off entirely with the release of MH4U, and then Bloodborne kept that away time going, and probably will continue to.
[13:00:37] <Bronz|work> ¿Y'know how active I've been?
[13:01:09] <Coby> I do not, I was asking. And don't think you answered?
[13:01:32] <Bronz|work> Not at all.
[13:01:35] <Bronz|work> That's the anwer.
[13:02:16] <Coby> I misread, missed the "active"
[13:02:28] <Bronz|work> Ah.
[13:02:36] <Bronz|work> Well, I've been pretty good, anyway
[13:02:41] <Bronz|work> I got a new bike, so that's cool.
[13:03:06] <Coby> That is cool, I've been meaning to get one
[13:03:19] <Coby> What kind?
[13:03:40] <Bronz|work> A 'hybrid' speed/city bike
[13:03:43] <Bronz|work> IE, a city bike
[13:03:57] <Bronz|work> It was the cheapest they had, 150 euro dollars
[13:04:40] <Coby> Not sure what that translates to into usd but since most are 250-400 here I'm going to assume you got a pretty good deal
[13:05:44] <Bronz|work> Appernatly, 161.27 dollars
[13:05:49] <Bronz|work> *apperantly.
[13:05:58] <Bronz|work> But I think I paid 160, not 150, now that I think about it.
[13:06:01] <Coby> Bloodborne time has become exploring chalice dungeons while listening to Welcome to Night Vale because that place is pretty repetetive but has so many things. It reminds me of bitterblack isle from dragon's dogma
[13:06:30] <Coby> Still sounds like a good deal
[13:06:57] <Coby> I think my ideas on pricing may be skewed since I'm with the bike association and all of the members get really nice bikes
[13:07:14] <Bronz|work> Yeah, this bike is already a bit wonkey with changing gears.
[13:07:29] <Bronz|work> But y'know, definetly good enough for my purposes.
[13:08:01] <Coby> as long as it can hold to a mid gear well it should be fine for riding in town
[13:08:32] <Bronz|work> Exactly
[13:08:49] <Bronz|work> I've been thinking of buying a PS4 for bloodborn.
[13:09:05] <Bronz|work> But I haven't been able to justify it with a single other game I care enough about.
[13:09:35] <Coby> Most of the games I'm interested in are on the way
[13:10:00] <Apsup> I'm willing to wait and get PS4 later when it has proper catalogue of games.
[13:10:11] <Apsup> Meanwhile I could get me PS3 and demons souls.
[13:11:30] <Coby> DMC4 Special Edition, Dragon Quest Heroes, I saw FF15 compared to both Dragon's Dogma in terms of how it generally handles, and God Hand in terms of an aspect of combat being that you set a weapon to an action and/or button press so that got me interested in that
[13:11:41] -!- yoshokatana [yoshokatana!~yoshokata@hide-435919F4.cst.lightpath.net] has joined #geeknights
[13:11:52] <Coby> Persona 5
[13:12:03] <Coby> Persona 5 and Bloodborne were the big ones
[13:12:17] <Bronz|work> P5 does look interesting
[13:13:11] <Coby> Have you heard of Welcome to Night Vale?
[13:13:25] <Coby> Friend introduced me to it recently
[13:14:54] <Coby> It's a podcast set up as a radio show for a small town in the middle of the desert where a lot of crazy things happen. Makes me think of Fallout radio, or SCP stories by way of Twin Peaks because of how nonchalant the radio host is about stuff like wheat turning into poisonous snakes
[13:14:58] <Coby> and then vengeful spirits
[13:15:30] <Coby> Pretty sure the city council is not human, maybe a hivemind entity
[13:15:45] <Bronz|work> Oh that sounds really cool
[13:16:22] <Coby> They had a wheat and wheat byproduct bunker, when asked why one was already built, the council answered "Prophecy"
[13:18:00] <Coby> I think my favorite early joke was "The City Council announces the opening of a new dog park at the corner of Earl and Sommerset, near the Ralph’s. They would like to remind everyone that dogs are not allowed in the dog park. People are not allowed in the dog park. It is possible that you will see hooded figures in the dog park. DO NOT APPROACH THEM. DO NOT APPROACH THE DOG PARK. The fence is electrified and highly dangerous. Try not to look at the d
[13:18:30] <Coby> and, especially, do not look for any period of time at the hooded figures. The dog park will not harm you."
[13:18:57] <Apsup> I listened some Night Vales at one point, but as I have billion podcasts that I listen it kinda fell off.
[13:19:04] <Coby> Straddles the line between being genuinely creepy and really funny
[13:22:22] <Coby> I've only really listened to Fast Karate and have just recently started checking out other stuff
[13:22:47] <Coby> mostly Greatest Movie Ever
[13:24:29] <Apsup> :[ I planned of walking though Coerthas with the new magitech music playing, but then I hit a fate and it's music ruined the mood.
[13:25:50] <Coby> new magitech music?
[13:25:55] <Coby> Is that why everyone is riding them?
[13:26:24] <Apsup> I assume so. It plays the music from the intro of ff 6 now.
[13:27:56] <Coby> Whaaaat
[13:56:36] <Coby> The town is now being overrun by graffiti from libertarian wild dogs
[13:56:42] <Coby> The Sheriff’s Secret Police suspect the feral dog pack to be responsible for the giant spray painted lettering along the scaffolding that reads “Gold Standard is Our Standard” and “Read Your Constitution”. There was also an elaborately painted portrait of Alexander Hamilton wearing Groucho Marx nose glasses and a caption that reads “Federalist Papers”, but where “Federalist” is crossed out and “Toilet” is written in red.
[14:04:47] <Coby> When life seems dangerous and unmanageable, just remember that it is and that you can’t survive forever. Denny’s. Why Not?
[14:04:51] <Coby> This place has the best ads
[14:16:31] <Coby> Some leak is suggesting that future From games might remain Sony exclusive
[14:16:53] <Coby> thanks to Bloodborne's success, Sony is looking into buying the developer from Kodakawa publishing
[14:17:38] <Apsup> It would probably be good deal for Sony. Not so good for the playing public.
[14:17:50] <Apsup> Games want to be free and on every platform.
[14:17:56] <Apsup> Makes things easier for me at least.
[14:23:03] <Coby> Kodakawa mostly makes creepy fanservice phone games when it comes to what little they do work with in games
[14:23:58] <Coby> Mostly they do magazines and comics
[14:26:15] <Coby> I think I'd rather the exclusivity than From being wrangled into koda's biggest game franchise
[14:26:25] <Coby> that one that turns military battleships into loli

[16:03:09] <Churba> EVening apsup
[16:03:15] <Churba> Was just playing a little BF4
[16:03:35] <Churba> I normally play on american servers with Omnutia, but I'd forgotten how much bloody fun that game is with a reasonable ping
[16:04:09] <Churba> Going from 250+ to 30-60 ping is like those scenes in anime, where the dudes drop the weighted clothes and suddenly become mad powerful

[16:56:46] <Bronzdragon> Hello!
[17:25:49] <Apsup> Hello.
[17:25:57] <Apsup> I had a friend, visiting.
[17:40:28] <Bronzdragon> How was he?
[17:42:29] -!- Churba has quit [Connection reset by peer]
[17:45:57] <Apsup> Fine, I guess. Had our (about) weekly talk of video games and anime.
[17:46:41] <Bronzdragon> Cool
[17:49:33] <Apsup> Also talk about the sorry state of video game industry in here.
[17:50:28] <Apsup> How there is large push for money grab mobile games, produced with excel calculations rather than focus on making good games.
[17:55:43] <Bronzdragon> It's not really different from before though.
[17:56:15] <Bronzdragon> The differnce is now all the license games and horse adventure games are on mobile instead of the walmart bargin bin
[17:59:30] <Apsup> Except the push for shitty license games probably wasn't that great, but because Rovio and Supercell have been succesful the investors think that cash grap mobile games are where the money is, and that results into too many new startups making too many shitty games that will crash and burn.
[18:04:27] <Apsup> Also, Mark Hamil in flash tonight. Can't wait.
[18:04:57] <Bronzdragon> Oh man, tonight.
[18:05:07] <Bronzdragon> Too bad it's closer to tomorrow for me.
[18:07:14] <Apsup> Well, it's technically tomorrow for me too, but as I have nothing important tomorrow, I probably stay up and watch a stream.
[18:15:08] <Bronzdragon> I wish they'd do much more Arrow/Flash crossovers.
[18:15:39] <Bronzdragon> Also, batman show
[18:23:44] <Apsup> Batman is too big of a thing for DC to just give a tv-show. Batman is movie star.

[20:17:01] <GauntletWizard> I am alive
[20:17:04] <GauntletWizard> why am I alive
[20:25:29] <Apsup> You are alive because you have been born, but haven't died yet.
[20:34:28] <GauntletWizard> ah

[20:34:47] <GauntletWizard> I have utterly been convinced of their futility
