    We are telling him that he is a madman that will no longer consider it leisure time if he continues down this dark dark path

    This is also what people say about offline dark souls, speed runs, one type runs in pokemon....

    people have fun with games different ways!

    None of those are incorrect, but they are insane regardless.

    I was referring to Trippy lumping them in under the 'insane' umbrella, I have a bunch of single-type teams

    frederick is real good, actually. even if you only use him for his pair up bonuses. he's not seth good(who is?) but he annihilates everything early game and with second seals him being promoted doesn't matter since you can reset him back to cavalier and keep leveling.

    I probably should have done something to make x/y harder, stomping through the whole game wasn't super fun. I mean, it's built as a game that little kids should be able to beat, so it makes sense.

    Watching workers help little kids through tough parts of the game at a Pokemon Center is still one of the cutest things I have seen.

    The way to make X and Y harder is to turn off EXP Share, since that item is there to alleviate grinding.

    you can turn off the.. one that lets you switch when people change to a new pokemon. that ups the difficulty considerably

    Needing to grind doesn't make a game harder, just more boring.

    It doesn't matter if Chincy beats the game or not. If he is having fun and feels his time is being well spent then it is all gravy baby.

    I think people are noticing that he is not having fun, and are thus encouraging him to play a game in a way he might find more fun

    of course this kinda slides into weird mocking on some peoples' part because, well, internet

    e:


    I'm having fun with the combat part

    I'm frustrated with the part where the game seems keen to let me miss out on things

    Honestly you're overstating it. There isn't all that much you can permanently miss, and it's easy to spot the recruitable characters. They'll even give you a line if you fuck up and kill them.

    Ah that's an option? Yeah that would have been a good one to change. Been so long since I played Pokemon I just thought that that was how things were.

    Well duh, it depends on when you turn it off, since it's very helpful for the early parts when you're Pokemon have barely any moves. And yeah, turning off free switching on KO is another way to make the game harder.

    I was going to pair up my guy with Sully because she's the best, but apparently that pairing's dialogue mostly revolves around vomiting which is kinda weird

    Yeah, Avalugg has the special defence of wet paper but if you're counting Lapras I'd count that.

    e: Or Shuckle, that works too

    @Somestickguy‌ I read your thing about your Ipod and the picture in it made me think of System Shock 2

    Made me chuckle.

    What the hey

    I've never even played System Shock 2!

    here is how i like to play gmod with friends

    everyone opens up their spawn menu, the construction props tab. everyone closes their eyes and clicks and scrolls randomly till they spawn like 6-7 items (number can be whatever)

    then they open their eyes and gotta build something with whatever they ended up spawning. tools and chairs for vehicles and thrusters and stuff are fair game

    then everyone makes the coolest shit and fucks around till you do it again when you break everything

    Alright, question.

    So to the people who have taken some issue with the quality of Watch space Dogs presented in the Unfinished for it, what turned you off?

    Not being snarky, I am genuinely curious.

    The frame rate looks SUPER janky but A. that could be the capture and B. it's a ubisoft game, what did I expect anyway

    Other than that, it looked fun

    i did this twice just now on a public server!

    first time i ended up with a desk, two telephone poles, and a ragdoll, which i made into a weird podracer type contraption with cool glowy bits that had the ragdoll being dragged behind leaving a blur trail

    second time i got two truck wheels, a desk, and a chair. I made this into a light show where i attached the two wheels to the top of the desk via motors, tied various lights to the wheels, and put the chair on top. when activated it would just sorta freak out and make pretty shapes and colors
