[07:29:44] <Aria> This guy ported You Don't Know Jack DLC for PS3 to Wii so it would work on Dolphin
[07:30:29] <Aria> As in, the DLC never came out on Wii originally, but the base game did
[07:59:16] <Bronz|work> Oh hi Aria, you're home early.
[07:59:30] <Bronz|work> *up early
[07:59:36] <Bronz|work> And also, that sounds neat.
[08:15:06] <Aria> EDF apperantly has sold 60k sales on Steam, according to Steamspy
[08:15:29] <Bronz|work> That's not bad.
[08:15:30] <Aria> Which seems very strange, since that is more than Deus Ex the new one, Hitman the new one, PES
[08:15:37] <Aria> NBA
[08:15:42] <Bronz|work> I wonder how that stacks up to console sales...
[08:15:50] <Aria> Pretty much every game I looked up has sold less
[08:16:10] <Aria> Also "YouTube stats: 4,008 views and 40 comments for videos uploaded last week, 17 new videos uploaded yesterday."
[08:16:15] <Bronz|work> Well, maybe the steam spy numbers are skewed.
[08:16:37] <Bronz|work> That's some pretty good engagement.
[08:16:47] <Bronz|work> You don't really see that reflected in the /r/EDF sub, for example.
[08:17:04] <Aria> 4000 views/week is not good
[08:17:40] <Aria> Mirrors Edge 1 had 40k views last week
[08:17:45] <Aria> That game is 7 years old
[08:18:24] <Bronz|work> Ah, ok.
[08:18:30] <Aria> 4000 views/week implies 1000 sales, not 60k
[08:19:09] <Aria> What I think it is, is that pirated copies are online enabled, so those are singing into steam and getting counted here?
[08:19:31] <Bronz|work> Perhaps.
[08:21:14] <Aria> Mankind Divided has 1m views and 5k comments YouTube engagement
[08:22:07] <Bronz|work> Ah, I see.
[08:22:26] <Bronz|work> I thought it was average of all videos on [insert game here].
[08:22:30] <Bronz|work> So that would be pretty low, right?
[08:22:54] <Aria> Oh no, its added together
[08:23:13] <Aria> I looked up EDF sales because Im watching a GDC talk and this guy is saying you should stop making fun games without first seeing if similar games sold well
[08:23:13] <Bronz|work> Ah ok.
[08:23:23] <Aria> Namely, don't make couch coop games
[08:23:34] <Bronz|work> Here's EDF 5, 10 minutes of gameplay: https://www.youtube.com
[08:23:44] <Bronz|work> It has a sprint button.
[08:23:56] <Aria> I.. don't want spoilers?
[08:24:11] <Aria> He's playing easy!?
[08:24:30] <Aria> These pixels are so large
[08:25:08] <Bronz|work> =P
[08:25:35] <Aria> Man I want this so bad
[08:25:39] <Bronz|work> Try this one then: https://www.youtube.com
[08:25:43] <Aria> We should play more 4.2
[08:26:03] <Aria> This video is so much sharper
[08:26:20] <Aria> Can I get the audio of the other one?
[08:31:05] <Bronz|work> =P
[08:31:16] <Bronz|work> You can mute this video, and play the other in the background.
[08:52:23] <Aria> http://i.imgur.com or http://i.imgur.com ?
[08:53:57] <Bronz|work> That frown is way too extreme and silly.
[08:55:21] <Aria> He's like this guy http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net
[09:51:57] <Bronz|work> So I have a meeting with HR, about my 3 lates.
[09:52:49] <Aria> =/
[09:53:04] <Bronz|work> 1 doesn't exist in the system
[09:53:11] <Bronz|work> 1 shouldn't exist in the system.
[09:53:20] <Bronz|work> and one was for the shift registration being backwards.
[09:53:23] <Bronz|work> So y'know...
[09:56:18] <Aria> There's an advanced wars kickstarter
[09:56:28] <Aria> Its earned about 10k USD
[09:57:21] <Aria> Its not licensed. But some of the same devs
[09:57:25] <Aria> Its made in UE4
[09:57:36] <Bronz|work> So it's progressive battles?
[09:57:50] <Aria> Tiny Metal.
[09:57:57] <Aria> It has a free demo
[09:58:41] <Aria> Their backer reward is OP items
[10:00:52] <Aria> Ok, not some of the same devs, just one guy. And it sounds like he doesn't have a big involvement
[10:04:37] <Aria> So 7 guys are making it, they're all legit people who have worked on other games. One of them worked on a Advanced Wars game, but he's not doing this full time. At least one other guy among the 7 is also not full time
[10:27:53] <Aria> Man why do I read /r/games comments?
[10:28:15] <Aria> They're talking about how much programming goes into making a game, and they are very wrong
[10:29:26] <Bronz|work> In what way?
[10:30:59] <Aria> Basically, they're saying you need more programmers than artists on low complexity games like visual novels and walking simulators
[10:32:18] <Aria> Also that animations playing too long is because of "poor optimazation" instead of yknow, the animation playing too long. Never mind that they are discussing a kickstarter demo.
[10:49:49] <Aria> This guy asked if Tekken 7 Xbox/PS4 comes with a free PC key, and Harada replied with "Free? Why?"
[10:49:57] <Aria> I like Harada.
[11:03:27] <Bronz|work> Indeed
[11:16:01] <Aria> Super Sentai has been using the same sound effects for 20 years.
[11:24:35] <Aria> Let's Morphing!
[11:29:06] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Aleksi@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[11:31:53] <Bronz|work> Hey Apsup!
[11:33:17] <Aria> https://www.reddit.com
[11:38:28] <Apsup> hallo
[11:42:59] <Bronz|work> Did you read my email, Aria?
[11:43:17] <Bronz|work> The clean-desk from yesterday?
[11:43:41] <Aria> No
[11:43:42] <Aria> Not yet
[11:59:04] <Bronz|work> Both HR and Fahmi sat me down privetly to talk to me about it.
[12:00:12] <Aria> I will read it now I guess
[12:03:14] <Aria> Ok hyeah I could see that
[12:06:11] <Aria> There was a wrestling match at TGS?
[12:07:44] <Aria> Its not very good
[12:35:45] <Bronz|work> Oh.
[12:37:01] <Aria> I was gonna take a 20m break from work, but its been like 6 hours.
[12:38:47] <Bronz|work> Ha!
[13:01:46] <Aria> Im sculpting a pony tail
[13:01:48] <Aria> Its not eh...
[13:01:50] <Aria> Great
[13:10:55] <Bronz|work> ...
[13:11:09] <Bronz|work> Try sculpting a pony first.
[13:11:13] <Bronz|work> Then a tail
[13:11:17] <Bronz|work> And then add them together.
[13:24:25] <Aria> http://i.imgur.com
[13:24:37] <Aria> (Ponytail in the back)
[13:24:43] <Aria> Is that good
[13:24:53] <Apsup> hard to judge the ponytail from that.
[13:25:23] <Aria> Yeah don't worry about the ponytail I meant
[13:25:27] <Aria> The mustache
[13:25:30] <Aria> Also new mouth
[13:25:34] <Aria> And new forehead
[13:25:53] <Apsup> I do like the evil villain face of multiple different types of evil facial hair and mean look.
[13:26:24] <Aria> Alright. Grand. Ill give him clothes now then
[13:29:05] <Bronz|work> Why did you make him french?
[13:29:08] <Bronz|work> A french villain?
[13:29:25] <Aria> Cause bishounen leather jacket guy is obviously the good guy
[13:30:03] <Bronz|work> Every time that guy slashes the air, it should make a oui sound.
[13:30:15] <Aria> We can do that.
[13:30:38] <Bronz|work> And he shouts "Non!" as his grunt.
[13:31:05] <Aria> Is France seperate from the EU?
[13:31:14] <Aria> Space France?
[13:32:26] <Bronz|work> Hmm... nah.
[13:32:38] <Bronz|work> Maybe space EU is many seperate states still?
[13:32:47] <Bronz|work> So we can have a space france, but still also a space EU?
[13:33:20] <Aria> Ooo
[13:33:37] <Aria> Like, a bunch of different space stations with bridges between them
[13:40:33] <Aria> You know how I keep saying Marvelous Designer history is garbage?
[13:40:45] <Aria> Apperantly its a new feature in 5.5!
[13:41:01] <Aria> They didn't have history in the last major revision
[13:41:16] <Aria> I guess not even last major, in the last minor revision. We're on 5.5.3 now
[13:41:43] <Bronz|work> Ah, ok.
[13:41:50] <Bronz|work> That explains it.
[13:46:31] <Aria> His sword is too thin..
[13:46:40] <Aria> Also why did his sword come into MD?
[13:46:58] <Aria> Also he has a German battlefield sword
[13:47:12] <Aria> But if you say he looks way french, maybe he should have French heritage sword
[13:51:57] <Bronz|work> Well, he is a EU citizen.
[13:54:25] <Aria> Oh he's not French? he's like, EU Man?
[13:54:40] <Aria> He's got the EU circle on his chest
[13:57:01] <Bronz|work> =P
[13:57:04] <Bronz|work> I dunno.
[14:00:52] <Aria> Alex agrees with me!
[14:01:04] <Bronz|work> that's good.
[14:01:04] <Aria> He thinks movie theaters are bad
[14:01:08] <Bronz|work> Also, who?
[14:01:17] <Apsup> also why?
[14:01:23] <Aria> Alex Navaro (sp?)
[14:01:28] <Aria> He's explaining now
[14:02:12] <Aria> ... He still watches five movies in theaters a year...
[14:03:22] <Apsup> I watch like one and not even that really.
[14:03:29] <Apsup> Maybe one in average.
[14:03:37] <Apsup> Sometimes zero sometimes two.
[14:04:11] <Apsup> But at the rate I go there it's cheaper for me to go to movie theather occasionally than to get sound system and television good enough to compete with the experience.
[14:05:22] <Aria> I think you have a better experience even with a cheap TV and built in speakers
[14:06:13] <Aria> You can pause. You don't need to scoot past anyone. You don't have to go deaf. You can customize your filters to your liking. You can bring real food
[14:06:55] <Apsup> Ability to pause just ends up with me getting distacted of the movie by Internet or something.
[14:07:16] <Apsup> Also even though I'm fat I don't need to eat constantly. I don't even bring snaks to movies.
[14:07:42] <Apsup> And having to pass few people when getting to my seat is really not a thing that has any meaning.
[14:08:05] <Apsup> The large screen and surround sound with decent system is worth it.
[14:09:56] <Aria> What about going to the bathroom? Also at home you don't have to pay extra for a couch
[14:10:17] <Aria> And you're not lobsided!
[14:10:18] <Apsup> I go bathroom before the movie and don't drink during it, just so I wouldn't need to.
[14:11:35] <Aria> Also watching at home is better for watching with friends, since you can have a conversation without bothering the people who aren't in your conversation
[14:12:19] <Aria> But the biggest one for me is the sound. They always play the sound way too loud in the cinema
[14:15:46] <Aria> Also Vinny agrees with me on Batman v Superman
[14:17:25] <Aria> Well sorta, he describes it at very weak plot, decent fights and overall good time. Which is sorta the same. But I thought the fights were garbage. I liked the mood and the pretty graphics
[14:33:53] <Aria> Hey Walter you went home?
