[07:21:37] <Apsup> Morning!
[08:24:48] <Bronz|work> Good morning, Apsup!
[08:37:29] <Apsup> Hello hello
[08:38:23] <Apsup> For once I woke up early.l
[08:38:29] <Apsup> And didn't go sleep super late.
[08:38:38] <Apsup> Though, still too late.
[08:39:35] <Apsup> Went to bed around midnight, and then spent about three hours of just looking at youtube videos on my tablet.
[08:41:16] <Bronz|work> Hmm, I went at 1:30-ish, and I felt sorta good about it.
[08:47:15] <Apsup> I guess it's a good time to be proud of. I think ultimately it depends on when you have to wake up and how long you get to sleep.
[08:47:25] <Apsup> That's the most important bit.
[09:17:34] <Bronz|work> That's fair.

[12:52:10] <Apsup> Hello again!
[13:11:41] -!- Aria [Aria!Aria@hide-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has joined #geeknights
[13:12:27] <Aria> Hello
[13:12:40] <Aria> Hey I didn't sleep so long look at that!
[13:13:53] <Bronz|work> I ate some sushi.
[13:14:01] <Bronz|work> The rice was a little hard, but it was actually tasty.
[13:14:07] <Bronz|work> I wish I had a little more food though...
[13:15:26] <Apsup> I visited friend for a coffee and ate on the way back.
[13:15:39] <Bronz|work> Ah, was that good?
[13:15:41] <Aria> How adult of you
[13:16:05] <Apsup> Yes. Was almost ready to take a post meal nap after returning home, but got over it.,
[13:17:12] <Apsup> Well, less adult of me is how I talked mostly about what video games I've been playing and how I've been watching Power Rangers.
[13:17:36] <Aria> Hey man, those are the things you're doing. What do you think your parents talk about?
[13:19:34] <Aria> We played some Mass Effect yesterday, and I liked it quite a bit
[13:19:48] <Bronz|work> Not at first though.
[13:20:07] <Apsup> I've heard mixed things. I'll play it when I get around to it.
[13:20:17] <Apsup> I have other big rpgs on the list first.
[13:20:23] <Apsup> Like Witcher 3.
[13:20:41] <Apsup> Also Persona 5 comes out soon and that's in the "get and play it when it's fresh" -camp.
[13:21:00] <Aria> Both MEA and Witcher 3 have really bad camera design
[13:21:07] <Aria> Witcher more so
[13:22:04] <Aria> So the reason I didn't like MEA at first wasn't the game, it was the framerate
[13:23:17] <Aria> It was absolute trash. Average at 60, but frequently down to like 20, that kind of thing
[13:23:31] <Aria> But I updated my Nvidia driver and then all the problems went away
[13:24:08] <Aria> They honestly should not let you launch the game unless you have the right driver version
[13:24:57] <Aria> But anyway, the game is cool, you have hip jets, so you can by default regardless of class to do the dashes that you could do in ME3 multiplayer
[13:25:27] <Aria> Aiming is very poorly done. I feel it was designed for a mouse.
[13:26:12] <Aria> People complain about the animations, but it's super not a problem. Significantly better than the average game
[13:26:33] <Aria> Not per animation maybe, but there is a ton of it
[13:27:20] <Aria> Character creator leaves a lot to be desired. I was able to get a character I liked, but only because I liked one of the presents.
[13:27:39] <Aria> The pistol is just not as good as any of the other weapons.
[13:28:15] <Aria> Maybe future pistols will be more, more good than future rifles will be more good.
[13:28:51] <Aria> My character's name is Knight Ryder.
[13:29:26] <Bronz|work> It's a good name.
[13:29:27] <Aria> Oh! The shadows from my characters hair are a real problem. I recommend going bald.
[13:29:38] <Aria> They look really bad
[13:34:58] <Apsup> From what I see the animations are little bit too much in the "tries too hard" camp.
[13:35:26] <Apsup> They clearly tried to have the characters move maybe more naturally, but they don't quite get there and there is lots of awkward movements.
[13:36:34] <Aria> Actually I think it's the opposite. I think they were rushed. There is so much clipping and like-- issues
[13:37:05] <Aria> But it's fine, because if you're not looking for it, it's not super obvious, and the amount of bespoke animations easily makes up for it
[13:37:36] <Aria> The game isn't AAA polish, but it's the kind of game that only a AAA studio could make
[13:37:54] <Aria> Which makes the bad camera pivot even more bizarre
[13:58:52] <Apsup> I'm tired
[13:59:00] -!- Bronz|work has quit [Read error]
[13:59:22] <Apsup> I guess he didn't want to listen me complaining anymore.

[14:12:32] <Aria> I'm tired too
[14:13:58] <Bronz|work> Hmm, I could go for a nap but I'm at work.
[15:02:59] <Aria> I think I've gotten sick
[15:03:31] <Aria> No sniffles or sore throat or anything, but I'm unreasonably cold
[15:28:33] <Bronz|work> It's also just straight-up cold at home though.
[16:09:01] -!- Apsup has quit [Ping timeout: 180 seconds]
[16:59:21] <Bronz|work> About time to go, I'd say.
