[14:40:39] <Aria> Hey Apsup, I have a problem. I have a world with sentient furries and lizardmen and the like
[14:40:49] <Apsup> and?
[14:41:09] <Aria> But there are also three fantasy creatures that are unique/foreign to my characters
[14:41:10] <Apsup> Or is that the extent of your problem.
[14:41:55] <Aria> But players will naturally assume they are just also fantasy speicies
[14:42:22] <Apsup> That calls for some good writing to get the idea across without seeming like exposition.
[14:42:39] <Apsup> Or use exposition and explain everything like your players were six years old.
[14:43:11] <Apsup> Also Nintendo Switch got trailer and proper annoucement.
[14:43:21] <Aria> Nintendo Switch? is that NX?
[14:43:29] <Apsup> Yes.
[14:43:48] <Apsup> https://www.youtube.com
[14:44:37] <Aria> Alright that's cool. Their stock barely moved
[14:44:46] <Aria> I'll watch the trailer in a bit when I have access to the TV
[14:45:58] <Apsup> One negative about HexChat seems to be that it noticed that I'm in finland and assumed that I want to write in Finish, thus underlying everything I now write in red.
[14:46:20] <Aria> I wish mine had spellcheck, because I can't spell.
[14:46:40] <Aria> It says it does...
[14:49:12] <Aria> Maybe it works now, but I would have to restart it to find out
[14:49:40] <Apsup> I got it to work.
[14:50:04] <Apsup> The finish dictionary was defined with fi_FI, so I assumed that english should be en_EN. But it was only en.
[14:50:28] <Aria> Yeah, I had mine to en_GB
[21:49:23] -!- Bronzdragon [Bronzdragon!B-Dawg@hide-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has joined #geeknights
[21:49:36] <Bronzdragon> Never fear, Bronzie's here.
[22:10:02] <Apsup> But I wasn't afraid.
[22:10:13] <Apsup> How about that Nintendo Switch?
[22:10:26] <Bronzdragon> That's ok, I was always with you in Spirit.
[22:10:38] <Bronzdragon> Also, that switch... that trailer looked like a fake trailer.
[22:11:14] <Apsup> Well, it's fake as if the thing isn't yet real and there aren't actually hip young people playing it instead of taking care of their dogs.
[22:13:27] <Bronzdragon> Well, rather I mean, like it wasn't made by Nintendo.
[22:13:43] <Bronzdragon> It looks like one of those teasers that is supposed to trick you.
[22:13:53] <Apsup> Well, after WiiUUUwiiuu, they probably did some remodelling of their pr department.
[22:14:22] <Apsup> I think it's kinda funny how about all of the rumors were true and then some.
[22:15:48] <Bronzdragon> That's true.
[22:15:59] <Bronzdragon> I do think it's cool they still allow you to break the controller up.
[22:16:21] <Bronzdragon> The step from wired to wireless controller was great, now the step from having my hands together to wherever I want is also good!
[22:17:41] <Apsup> I wonder about the battery life. Of the controllers and the whole deal.
[22:17:57] <Apsup> The portability will be of limited use if it lasts like 15 minutes outside of the dock,
[22:18:40] <Bronzdragon> While that's true, every controller they've made without a screen has lasted over 50 hours.
[22:19:35] <Bronzdragon> WiiU gamepad is like, 6 hours, but the pro controller is both feather light, and lasts forever.
[22:19:37] <Apsup> Sure, I guess the controller won't be the main issue, but the whole thing as portable system.
[22:20:26] <Apsup> Thing I wonder most about this is why now? Random date middle of october to show a random trailer finally showing off what NX actually is.
[22:20:45] <Apsup> Didn't they have enough ready at E3, or TGS or anything else.
[22:22:52] <Bronzdragon> Yeah, and they're missing the holiday season too.
[22:24:05] <Bronzdragon> It's coming in March, right?
[22:24:11] <Apsup> ye
[22:25:06] <Bronzdragon> Well, I'll probably end up getting one.
[22:32:25] <Apsup> I at least wait to see a bit. I'm optimistic, but I can't afford to buy console before it has games.
