[05:49:27] <Bronz|work> Good morning.
[05:49:40] <Aria> Morning to you!
[05:51:46] <Bronz|work> How goes?
[05:51:58] <Aria> Well yknow, up and down
[05:52:04] <Aria> I'm gonna watch the behind the scenes stuff
[05:52:07] <Aria> Bet it'll be good
[05:52:10] <Bronz|work> What are you, an elevator?
[05:52:40] <Aria> That's right
[05:52:42] <Aria> Don't you know me?
[05:52:46] <Aria> I'm Elevator Sam
[05:55:43] <Bronz|work> My 3DS needs charging =(
[05:56:11] <Aria> I heard you can charge it by putting it in a microwave
[05:56:25] <Bronz|work> Oh, that's a good idea!
[05:56:28] <Aria> No wait sorry, I mean, give it to me, I'll take it up to the charger. Using my elevation powers.
[05:56:32] <Aria> I'll elevate the power readings
[05:56:36] <Bronz|work> (y)
[06:00:38] <Aria> This game is called ωラビリンスZ and the ω (omega) in the logo frames the main characters breasts.
[06:00:47] <Aria> Also the Z is referring to maximum cup size
[06:01:02] <Aria> Vita, of course.
[06:02:11] <Bronz|work> Ah, of course.
[06:03:03] <Aria> Okay, watching this trailer, I think they're just trying to see what they can get away with. Not yet rated
[06:03:35] <Aria> I bet they've sent the game to get a rating like a hundred times to see exactly where the limit is
[06:09:26] <Aria> This behind the scenes star wars starts with the one person (I think actor for main character) saying
[06:10:32] <Aria> "The pitch was so compelling, that I immediately said 'I THINK this COULD be great'". Emphasis mine
[06:10:56] <Aria> That is such a bad sell.
[06:11:18] <Bronz|work> It is.
[06:21:33] <Aria> The actor for the main character said she spent a lot of time on Wookiepedia during filming
[06:21:42] <Aria> Maybe the writers should have as well!
[06:22:06] <Aria> Take that, movie!
[06:27:33] <Bronz|work> Ooooh, sick burn!
[06:33:40] <Aria> In the trailer for Rouge One, they edited his neck to look normal!
[06:37:33] <Bronz|work> ...
[06:37:49] <Bronz|work> Maybe the leaked version we got wasn't done yet.
[06:37:55] <Bronz|work> They decided last minute to fix his neck.
[06:38:01] <Aria> It's been in cinemas
[06:38:19] <Aria> No, there are threads of people complaining about the cinema version, and showing comparisons to the trailer
[06:38:43] <Aria> The scene in the trailer is like 1 and a half second, you can edit that
[06:38:45] <Bronz|work> Ah, ok.
[06:38:54] <Aria> But in the movie its like 10 minutes. Nobody has time for that
[06:41:45] <Aria> The guy in charge wrote two paragraphs defending it, where at no point did he touch on the neck
[06:41:58] <Aria> It's all about the material, and minor changes to the panel and shit
[06:53:49] <Aria> The two asian characters were going to be aliens
[06:54:00] <Aria> But I guess that was too expensive, so they got Donnie Yen.
[06:58:19] <Aria> Donnie Yen decided he was blind on set, it wasn't part of the script
[07:01:33] <Bronz|work> Did he?
[07:01:48] <Bronz|work> I feel that it's a pretty huge change.
[07:02:01] <Bronz|work> Because before he was just a bad-ass fighter like all the other kids
[07:02:07] <Bronz|work> But now he's god tier.
[07:06:16] <Aria> I feel like I could make a edit that really improves this movie
[07:06:31] <Aria> By cutting down a lot of the first half
[07:07:03] <Bronz|work> I enjoyed it more than 7 though.
[07:07:15] <Aria> The first half?
[07:07:24] <Bronz|work> Yeah.
[07:07:35] <Aria> Hrm. I didn't.
[07:08:05] <Aria> The second half was a lot better than 7, but the first half felt like it was doing everything wrong
[07:16:50] <Aria> The guy they got to do the mocap for Cushing looks more like him than the CG did
[07:17:02] <Bronz|work> =P
[07:17:17] <Aria> Okay that's not fair. But he looks pretty convincing. Maybe they should've done makeup
[07:17:24] <Aria> Though 3 did makeup and that was terrible
[07:17:43] <Aria> And this was certainly good enough to be taken seriously, even if it was visible fake
[07:18:22] <Bronz|work> They should've had less full-on face shots of him speaking then.
[07:18:36] <Bronz|work> Just show him, have him turn around and stuff, just don't animate him.
[07:19:06] <Aria> I've never been a fan of Darth Vader's design
[07:19:24] <Aria> The persona is great. Breathing, voice, mannerisms and everything
[07:19:51] <Aria> Just don't like the look of the helmet and calculator chest/belt
[07:20:13] <Aria> And he looks worse in this than any other movie
[07:22:51] <Aria> They did steal the design from Rebel Strike by the way
[07:23:30] <Aria> They didn't say so with so many words, but they looked through all the canon concept arts and used the ones they thought looked cool/not too well known
[07:23:52] <Bronz|work> Pretty much what I said, right?
[07:23:55] <Aria> Yeah
[07:27:21] <Aria> This lady is credited as "SVP development".
[07:27:28] <Bronz|work> =P
[07:27:32] <Aria> That was important to the movie!
[07:27:38] <Bronz|work> It was!
[08:07:26] <Aria> Alright, gonna see about having a nap
[08:07:29] <Aria> Talk to you later!
[08:08:15] <Bronz|work> Bye

[09:29:36] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Apsup@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[09:31:39] <Apsup> Good morning!
[09:32:02] <Bronz|work> How goes it, Apsup?
[09:32:25] <Apsup> Just woke up. Somewhat late, but at least I got sleep.
[09:32:58] <Bronz|work> I watched Rogue one earlier today.
[09:33:04] <Bronz|work> The bluray was leaked
[09:34:59] <Apsup> Did you like it?
[09:35:14] <Bronz|work> I did, actually
[09:35:20] <Bronz|work> I think I liked it better than Aria did.
[10:07:15] -!- Demisonters [Demisonters!half-ass@hide-21CCC867.va.shawcable.net] has joined #geeknights
[10:08:02] <Bronz|work> hello.
[10:08:58] -!- Demisedulous has quit [Ping timeout: 180 seconds]
[11:01:18] <Apsup> This was/is worrying. My PC didn't see my external harddrive. Even after I plugged it out and back in again.
[11:01:25] <Apsup> Switching USB ports worked.
[11:01:39] <Bronz|work> Hmm. That is a little suspicious.
[11:02:04] <Apsup> Yea, it might be dying. I also has had issue with corrupting video files.
[11:02:16] <Apsup> I have been thinking about getting a new one, just in case.
[11:07:26] <Bronz|work> You can scan for bad sectors.
[11:07:33] <Bronz|work> Those are usually a good indication that stuff is messed up.
[11:13:00] <Apsup> I have tried, but found nothing. Which is kinda worrying, but I guess things can get fucked anyways.
[11:25:59] <Bronz|work> Yeah...
[11:26:11] <Bronz|work> Well, at least you have back-ups, right?
[11:37:07] <Apsup> Nope. I'm not made out of money to buy harddrives. The external is for not-super-important-stuff like animes and music and other media.
[11:37:29] <Apsup> Still there is some stuff that I would be somewhat sad to lose, so I should invest into backing them up.
[11:53:18] <Bronz|work> I heard that Amazon cloud storage is incredibly cheap.

[16:00:45] <Apsup> Hi aria.
[16:02:35] <Aria> hello Apsup
[16:02:45] <Aria> Watch the new Space Man?
[16:02:47] <Aria> Star Wars*
[16:03:16] <Apsup> When it was in theathers, in December.
[16:03:24] <Aria> Oh yeah
[16:03:27] <Aria> Alright
[16:03:30] <Aria> Did you like it?
[16:03:39] <Apsup> I think it was fine enough.
[16:04:13] <Aria> I didn't like most of it, until the final mission
[16:04:20] <Aria> But that half of the movie was good
[16:05:28] <Apsup> The "this is my moment of heroic sacrifice, like five scenes in a row during the climax, was a bit, too much".
[16:06:16] <Aria> I dunno, I liked it, because the point wasn't that it was just the mains, but everyone
[16:06:31] <Aria> Didn't like how the one guy got back up
[16:06:46] <Aria> Because that made it more personal.
[16:07:26] <Apsup> Also, it's something I realized only after thinking about it, but the blind jedi and his guardian basically bought nothing to the movie than themselves.
[16:07:30] <Aria> I think I would've preferred if the lady pressed the buttons in time, and then maybe got shot by the villain, and then the villain died from the nuke, or just didn't die because who cares, his arc is done
[16:07:43] <Apsup> They were cool characters, but could have been removed with basically no changes.
[16:07:43] <Aria> Nope.
[16:07:48] <Aria> Yup.
[16:08:05] <Aria> Anyway, I didn't like the first half at all. It felt so-- Marvel movie
[16:08:30] <Aria> The enemies posed no threat to the heroes, everything was grey, all the pacing was terrible because they wanted jokes every few minutes
[16:09:02] <Aria> If they just had like, 1/10th the number of storm troopers in the first half of the movie, it would've been a better movie
[16:10:02] <Apsup> There was also that the very beginning was a collection of short scenes that tried to build itself like there is some complex web of conspirasy and people and in the end it wasn'
[16:10:13] <Apsup> t anything as comlex as it made itself out to be.ö
[16:12:03] <Aria> Anyway, overall I preferred it to 7, but I feel like it could've been a lot better with a bunch of edits. Not script edits, video edits, just omit many of the early scenes
[16:12:46] -!- Demisonters has quit [Ping timeout: 180 seconds]
[16:12:54] <Apsup> I think it had better story than 7 as it wasn't just 4 again, but I feel that ultimately the cast of characters was weaker.
[16:13:10] <Apsup> Maybe because they were buld to be one and done characters.
[16:15:30] <Aria> Oh I can't get behind that at all
[16:15:38] <Aria> I didn't like anyone in 7
[16:15:59] <Aria> But here I did.
[16:16:13] <Aria> Also both this as seven did the thing where they go to new planets that are just old planets
[16:16:37] <Aria> In 7 they went to Not-Tatooine
[16:16:48] <Aria> Here they vent to Not-destrillion
[16:18:02] <Aria> Jedha would've been cool, if it wasn't all brown and every scene there was boring
[16:19:29] <Aria> Also, if it ends like two weeks before 4, and they saw the exact ship flee the scene of the crime, then how did they expect to pass as a scheduled senate visit
[16:21:55] <Aria> I feel like this and seven both assume I don't remember Star Wars
[16:28:10] <Aria> Oh yeah also what's up with Darth Vader's neck?
[16:28:22] <Aria> Why didn't he have a proper helmet?
[16:33:03] <Apsup> I don't even know what you talking about?
[16:41:07] <Aria> https://qph.ec.quoracdn.net
[16:54:44] <Apsup> I have made a mistake
[16:55:50] <Apsup> Didn't let food be in oven for long enough. This is edible, but clearly not optimal.
[17:29:24] <Aria> Has Humble given up on DRM free?
[17:29:38] <Aria> THe new monthly comes with Dirt Rally and Inside as early unlocks
[17:29:47] <Aria> Both both are just Steam keys
[17:29:51] <Aria> And they don't tell you
[17:29:59] <Aria> I use Humble specifically to avoid Steam
[17:31:38] <Apsup> Has DRM free been ever a major point of Humble's? Though, usually they have told which kind of keys you get.
[17:32:09] <Aria> On the normal bundles they have icons that tell you when it's DRMd
[17:32:12] <Aria> and what platforms
[17:32:13] <Apsup> oh, you talk about monthly. Don't know anything about that.
[17:32:38] <Aria> Neither of these games had any icons, so I figured Mac, Lin, Win and DRM free
[17:33:12] <Aria> They actually do both do Linux
[17:33:15] <Aria> But not DRM free
