    If it was more along the lines of suicidal tendencies it would be okay.

    What do you look for in a game?

    I like deep gameplay, where you can constantly come back and find some new quirk that you hadn't realize was there. But at the same time I'm not fond of gameplay where you need to know a whole manual before you can do anything at all (Victoria series, I'm looking at you). I guess "easy to learn, hard to master" is the cliche phrase for it. This is probably why Heroes of Might and Magic III and Alpha Centauri are still favorites of mine, all these years after release. It's also probably why I'm attracted towards hard arcade type games like danmaku. But I can go completely the other way and just play it for the story, if it's good. I've played enough visual novels or things with so little gameplay as to practically be visual novels. But even there I want the fact that it's on my computer to add to the experience. That can be a simple as just having good voice acting, or having little immersive quirks like the ability to screw around on your phone in Steins;Gate. Too many story based games are really just made because the creator isn't a good enough writer to produce a novel, and they think that having it on computer will distract you from this fact.
  5. If you don't keep ahead of the meme curve you just turn into a normie. But there's only so much room to move, so eventually you go in a circle. The only other alternative is to keep the normie away by using degeneracy, like the mlp boards do.

    You can finally search for usernames in the gatherer database. But you still can't log in to leave comments or ratings.

    I do not like this cutscene. Its smug aura mocks me.
  10. I like a lot of offshoots of Firefox, but it feels like all of them have severe memory problems. I mean things like opening up a single blog page with no video/flash/scripts/etc and barely any images, leaving to do something else and coming back an hour later to see that the browser is now using .5 GB of memory. The frustrating thing is that it's not even something that happens all the time, or on every website. It doesn't even happen consistently on the same websites. Generally there's some set of circumstances that cause it to use progressively more and more memory without limit, even if there is nothing further to load on any page it is displaying. Other browsers seem to do this occasionally too, but not to the extent I've seen with firefox and its offshoots. I've heard chrome is worse, but I've never used it so I don't know. EDIT: I should also note that I know that I'm late to the party about this, and that people have been complaining about these issues for years. But it still really pisses me off. Almost as much as how many "retro" games there are which are so wasteful with CPU and/or RAM that you couldn't run them on a computer from five years ago, nevermind a computer from the era they are trying to mimic.

    Tzekibaba makes it really reliable against anything that doesn't kill you before turn 9. And there's enough defense tech to usually last to turn 9, given that you don't get screwed over by the draw.

    Playing Seraph combo in Shadowverse. Plan is to draw out game until turn eight, drop the 8 cost seraph card, then win the next turn off a combo. I'm matched against aggro blood, going second. That's okay, because everything non-combo in my deck is heavy defense. In theory I can outlast them. Seraph and 9 cost amulet tutor in opening draw. Throw back, get another 9 cost tutor. In the next four draws I draw 3 seraphs. These high cost cards make up 5 cards out of the whole deck. Never draw a cheap two/three drop defender or kill spell, which make up 15 cards in the deck.
