RMS has Undertale Emotions [Chat]

"Undertale is a good game." - Yahtzee Croshaw

I agree.

Here's that one song you probably heard

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5daGZ96QGU

Here's something with a little more analytical heft (spoilers)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4E-0sjkDnkc

And here's the spiel I've been threatening to write for ages.

Spoilers for the Pacifist Path
Safety spoiler.
Oh my god, Asriel. :cry:

I think this game tugged on some hangups I have about personal identity I didn't know I had. A child who goes along with a plan he doesn't quite understand, shows astounding will when he tries to back out of it, dies as a consequence, and as a reward for sticking to his convictions is reincarnated as a functional paraplegic who is eventually twisted into the antithesis of what he once was.

And THEN you can restore him, but only for a little while, so you've given him a little taste of himself, and then he loses that all again. His family is still shattered, whatever facsimile they can piece together with a human child they will outlive notwithstanding. For a game in which the morally optimal path is to play to the pacifist ending and then stop, that's quite the lack of closure to tempt you otherwise.

Been a while since something affected me like that. Been in quite the hole. I read fanfics. I wrote fanfics. I'm toying with writing another one. Exactly the sort of processed high-fat high-sugar stuff Jacobkosh doesn't care for but I don't care, I enjoyed thinking about it, even if I feel sad about it still.

This was worse than Aeris. At least she got some peace at the end. Flowey goes on and it hurts.

Also since we're in spoiler tags, actual awesome songs.

Well that was probably emotionally unhealthy even for someone with Autism like me I better reconnect with the real world and oh anyway back to talking about Sans...

    I fall into these holes of struggling with feels every now and then. Been a while since escapism has been the primary source but given external pressures it was bound to happen.

    It really depends on what you need to do.

    I do a lot of my work from iOS Outlook and its actually pretty great - the only real gap I have is it sucks when it comes to assigning rooms that have calendars to meetings. If your company uses exchange locations and needs them to be used it is a pain in the ass.

    Powerpoint is fine. I have done entire decks from it, no issue. there is an app called AnyFont that allows you to install, well, any font you need onto the iPad, which fixes one of the biggest flaws with all productivity apps on iOS.

    @Powerpuppies huh, that sounds really interesting. From what it sounds like, someone was a dick on the show, then it turned into an educational discussion, and the outing dick got voted off?

    If that's correct then I'm frankly probably glad that happened? A popular show that appeals broadly, rather than just to echo-chambery liberals, talking about this issue in an educational way without being too preachy is like, exactly what trans people need in general.

    @Six

    Thanks.

    Rooms don't matter, we use them but I rarely need to schedule them and can work around that. Mostly I'm afraid of little things, like the old Mac Outlook client couldn't forward meeting invites or have different signatures for new messages and replies. Little shit like that drove me nuts and back to Windows for work. Most email stuff I can do on my phone. Having a keyboard will make it so 99% of outlook stuff should be just fine, but calendar issues would be a huge problem.

    I'd rarely need to create decks from scratch, but always need to tweak things or build decks from separate ones. How easy is it to manage the master views, move slides around, and copy slides between decks? Also animation pane stuff since I sometimes have to undo or fix slide builds. I'm also assuming I can keep things locally with o365 somehow so I dont get screwed by being offline. I might actually guy one with a sim card and then pop in the SIM from my company-issued mifi.

    HMMMMMMM

    can you feel the struggle within?
