[09:29:28] <Bronz|work> Hi Aria!
[09:29:38] <Aria> Hi
[09:29:57] <Aria> 10:30 huh?
[09:30:50] <Bronz|work> Ya.
[09:31:08] <Bronz|work> I feel kind of crappy in general.
[09:31:18] <Bronz|work> Tired/cold/uncomfortable...
[09:31:39] <Aria> Its almost weekend
[09:32:05] <Bronz|work> When I say 'kind of' I mean 'only a little'.
[09:32:11] <Bronz|work> I'm fine, just not 100%
[09:32:35] <Aria> Super Robot Taisen OG MD actually looks pretty cool. These mechs like split in half. The outer bits of the shell comes off, but the base mech doesn't decrease in size, and the bits that came off forms another mech of equal size. Then the second mech transforms into a sword or gun or something
[09:34:20] <Bronz|work> I'm doing duolingo, and the robot says "L.O. Jenta" instead of "Lo Jenta?"
[09:34:36] <Aria> =P
[09:34:43] <Aria> Hey Apsup, have you seen the new PS4?
[09:34:49] <Aria> Its two PS4s on top of each other
[09:36:10] <Aria> Oh yeah I forgot to mention yesterday
[09:36:46] <Aria> You know Kamen Rider Knight's bat that turns into a cape that turns into a drill?
[09:37:21] <Aria> When he does his limit break thing thats the mid season upgrade, the drill is a shark instead.
[09:41:00] <Bronz|work> Ah, of course.
[09:50:23] <Aria> This mech shed its armor without getting any smaller, then the armor combined into a surf board and the main mech started surfing on it. But the mech was already flying. He doesn't need the surf board
[09:53:05] <Bronz|work> Are you sure he doesn't need the surfboard?
[09:59:05] <Aria> Don't get me wrong, Cycles is pretty decent
[09:59:10] <Aria> But they uploaded a demo reel
[09:59:18] <Aria> With 2 generic car commercial shots
[09:59:22] <Aria> And they both look bad
[09:59:40] <Aria> CG cars is something we've figured out.
[10:00:17] <Aria> The rest of the demo reel looks good
[10:00:48] <Bronz|work> how bad could those CG cars look...
[10:00:59] <Aria> I mean, they're fine
[10:01:21] <Aria> But they look like video game cars
[10:01:56] <Aria> And both have opaque windows
[10:04:53] <Aria> I'm watching this guy talk about Bayblade, and everything is "crazy" to him
[10:09:39] <Aria> So bayblade is literally all RNG, and the weight of your bayblade is your luck modifier
[10:10:05] <Bronz|work> Yup.
[10:10:10] <Aria> You can't spec differently
[10:10:18] <Bronz|work> Well... real life beyblades are like that.
[10:10:33] <Aria> Like, the game doesn't support having a strategy
[10:10:39] <Bronz|work> I mean, the edges and hooks on the side are a little different, not sure if that makes a difference.
[10:10:44] <Aria> The only stat that matters is weight
[10:11:16] <Aria> But if your thing hooks, your weight is what determines who looses still
[10:11:59] <Bronz|work> That's true....
[10:12:51] <Aria> Ok but the cartoon looks hype
[10:12:58] <Aria> They're doing summons and shit
[10:14:21] <Bronz|work> Yup.
[10:14:33] <Bronz|work> Also, if they believe harder, their beyblade spins faster.
[10:14:44] <Aria> No but they're choose where they go
[10:14:55] <Aria> They're changing strats mid fight
[10:15:26] <Aria> This one guy is standing in the middle, and then these other four guys group together and do planned attack patterns on him
[10:15:57] <Aria> !!
[10:16:22] <Aria> The USA champion kicks a American football which opens up mid air and his bayblade comes out
[10:16:38] <Bronz|work> =O
[10:17:52] <Aria> The judge is a cowboy
[10:19:43] <Aria> USA champions team mates are a baseball player and a basketball player
[10:20:10] <Bronz|work> Well, I mean, obviously
[10:20:21] <Bronz|work> Knowing baseball and basketball is knowing all about ball spin.
[10:22:09] <Aria> The main character was loosing. The computer guy who analyzes the match's commentary was "He is ten times stronger than you in ever strat". And nothing else
[10:22:36] <Aria> Anyway, main character changed his strat to "Ok but try harder Bayblade-san!" and then he won
[10:22:51] <Aria> And computer guy is all "That is amazing! How did you come up with such a clever plan!?"
[10:22:59] <Bronz|work> Well, clearly, computer guy forgot about the weight stat.
[10:25:28] <Aria> The USA computer person said "I thought I had considered angle of attack, but now that I think about it, I forgot to include the data on human emotions"
[10:25:36] <Aria> This might as well be a parody

[10:37:54] <Aria> Hi
[11:03:28] <Bronz|work> Hello again
[11:54:07] <Bronz|work> How goes?
[11:54:22] <Aria> I can't get this thing to work for me
[11:54:44] <Aria> There's a blender plugin for doing anime girls (Made by the makehuman guy)
[11:55:09] <Aria> And I mean, it does that. But it doesn't do any of the other things its supposed to do
[11:55:46] <Bronz|work> ...
[12:33:25] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Aleksi@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[12:35:37] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup!
[12:39:22] <Apsup> yooo
[14:01:06] <Aria> Hey Apsup, do you have ndo?
[14:01:46] <Aria> Also Megascans looks way cool
[14:02:02] <Bronz|work> "nDo is a melting pot of normal creation techniques".
[14:02:14] <Bronz|work> >_<
[14:02:30] <Apsup> No I don't even know what ndo is
[14:02:47] <Aria> Too bad it costs 30/month
[14:03:00] <Aria> (Or 300/month if you are a real company)
[14:03:09] <Aria> Also it has a resolution limit
[14:03:52] <Aria> 1000/year if you are a real+big company
[14:04:08] <Aria> Though that version can do 8k textures, so there is that
[14:05:37] <Aria> So it's like 50k to rent for the duration of a project
[14:05:42] <Aria> That's way too much
[14:06:13] <Apsup> Project lasts 50 years?
[14:06:21] <Aria> 4 years
[14:06:52] <Aria> The price is per month, but you can only choose to license in 12 month increments
[14:08:01] <Aria> ...Oh also they charge you per export
[14:09:42] <Bronz|work> ...
[14:09:46] <Bronz|work> that sounds like a lot.
[14:10:13] <Aria> Yeah, you better not want to experiment and test your changes in engine
