Mysteries and Cool Stuff


nocturnal YL: The synthesis puzzle is very fun, but doesn't make up for the tedious preparation process. Compare to Sophie 2 or Ryza 3 giving out best traits late game, Lydie & Suelle having them all in DLC, or Escha & Logy where the grinding doesn't involve fighting. Jun 1, 2024 23:45:57 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Fire Emblem: Three Houses has the oldest Anna in the series (probably), while Fire Emblem Engage has the youngest. It's an interesting contrast. Jun 12, 2024 10:22:26 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I like how Engage suggests that all of the Annas are just a big family that span across multiple worlds. Jun 12, 2024 18:55:19 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Almost done writing the text for my review. I still have to do double-checking and pick screenshots. This will be a long post, though not longer than my Surge Concerto DX review. This should be done in a few days, I thinkā€¦? Jun 17, 2024 12:10:56 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I like that Nintendo said this Direct would be for games launching in 2024, and then announced a bunch of stuff for 2025. (Full thoughts later.) Jun 18, 2024 9:52:04 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: NVIDIA is hailed as one of the most advanced tech companies, but here I am, trying to figure out why CUDA doesn't work with my browser or my vector graphics editor. Jun 21, 2024 11:38:35 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: For some reason, AI-generated articles and videos tend to start the final paragrah with "in conclusion" like English students doing writing composition assignments. This makes those articles rather easy to detect as AI-generated. Jun 22, 2024 12:55:28 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: In college, if I ended a paper *without* using the words "in conclusion," then the instructors often assumed that the last paragraph wasn't intended to be one, and they would call me out for not having a conclusion. Jun 22, 2024 14:27:38 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Or maybe I'm actually bad at writing conclusions. Funnily, I would get praise for my introductions. Jun 22, 2024 14:28:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I was looking to see what my previous thoughts were on SNK Heroines, but it doesn't seem that I actually wrote much. Jul 6, 2024 10:00:36 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, making a thread about why I don't play fighting games has led me to playing fighting games. Jul 12, 2024 8:02:53 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I still feel like maybe I should've bought the Miss X DLC for SNK Heroines. I suppose it's not too late, but I'm already getting a little tired of it, and I'm moving on to Smash for Wii U in my exploration of casual-friendly fighting games. Jul 14, 2024 8:24:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Ah, Smash Wii U, where bosses and CPU players can casually take me down. Certainly a casual game. Maybe I'm just bad at playing this kind of game and you'll do better. Jul 14, 2024 9:51:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I still haven't moved on and I'm currently still doing Atelier Shallie DX postgame stuff. I can make better items than the guides I read in some cases, while in others I'm still missing specific item properties. Jul 14, 2024 10:59:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: After playing Smash, it's clear that what SNK Heroines really needed was more game modes. Particularly single-player game modes. Jul 16, 2024 16:53:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Somehow, I think I've gotten better at playing Smash. Jul 19, 2024 11:20:25 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Apparently, SNK is working on a new Art of Fighting game, as well as a Samurai Showdown action-RPG. They casually mentioned this during their developer panel at EVO. Jul 20, 2024 13:59:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I've gotten bored of Smash after about a week, the same as with SNK Heroines. I'd say Smash is still the gold standard for accessible fighting games. Jul 22, 2024 9:17:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I've started a new game of Ys Seven. I don't know if I'll play it all the way through (it's ~40 hours), but I wanted to see if still holds up to my memories. Jul 22, 2024 9:20:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Actually, Ys Seven is probably shorter than 40 hours. I remembered that I spent a lot of time grinding skills, which was completely unnecessary, so it's maybe closer to 30 hours. Jul 22, 2024 15:56:27 GMT -5
