i just finished mallows trial

that battle was pretty damn intense. i easily got rekt but the sunny day/solar blade, but then my pikachu (who i named pancake) was able to survive 2 back to back solar blades w/ 1 HP (ya know, from the affection bonus)

her static also activated so i spammed charm to lower its attack the all the way down and have an easy time

god i love pokemon lol
definitely my favorite trial (except they changed some of them from the original sun/moon, so i think yours was different)

yeah like i said, very low exploration

it doesn't bother me at all, but i can sympathize with the feeling of wanting to go somewhere, but not being able to for the game's arbitrary reasons

I've been playing through Gold on the 3DS. I accidentally deleted my Spinarak's Poison Sting instead of another move and now she's useless for the time being. I keep her in my team out of pity at this point.
it'll learn another thing soon enough

i wish i could say she'll become a beast later but lmao ariados sucks unfortunately

better than ledian at least, who i always keep on my gen 2 team in spite of that

What absolutely murders it for me on top of all of this is the game force healing you every  other nanosecond. Like, oh my lord, these games were not exactly Cat Mario to begin with, but could you you at least PRETEND to be giving me challenge. This feels like one big boring ass cutscene at this point.

Walk Two inches
Talk for 30 minutes
Un-losable battle
Talk for 30 Minutes
Forced Heal
Talk for 10 More minutes
Go on the short ass route where the game throws shines at you like candy
Spend 30 ingame hours trying to catch a salamance on Route 2 and it doesnt even have a good nature anyway. what the hell am I doing with my life? What is wrong with me? I could have done literaly anything else whatsoever with that time. I dont even like this game competitively anymore. Why am I doing this?
Repeat Ad Infinitum minus the last step
yeah i never really played these games for challenge, that's what nuzlockes are for

if i'm playing casually, which is rare, i'm mostly in it for the gameplay loop which i find generally fun and addicting regardless of how difficult it is, and the teambuilding, because i always force myself to train different pokémon every time so i can keep things fresh and interesting

i also thought the game's story and overall presentation was the best in the series barring gen 2

I disagree. Maybe someone had a mentally ill brother and the word personally triggers them?? You can never be too cautious with your words. It's not hard to just be a fucking nice person Verbatim.
using the word retard like i am in this sentence is objectively not un-nice
It's easier to enforce a no-tolerance policy on slurs than to allow slurs to be acceptable. We don't even allow things like "nigga", or "fag" or any kind of reclaimed slur. It just makes it easiest and coziest for everyone here. We have a lot of sensitive members.
i'm sorry, did you just say the N-word AND the F-word? what the fuck, delete your account you homophobic racist
Dude this is sep7agon. It's entirely different from the Video Club. Why is this so hard for you to get? Different tones and words are appropriate in some places, but not others......
don't talk to me racist

if you understood it, then you'd also have to understand that the type of person who'd genuinely be triggered by the use of the slur in ALL contexts, no matter how vanilla or vacuumized, is probably not a person worth associating with

they also don't exist, because no one is that unreasonable, and even if they were, that shouldn't give them power

see if i can't finish my novel by the end of august
What’s it about?
the modern struggle for small town introverts to integrate themselves into the world, as well as to connect with the people who inhabit it, through the lens of a person whose life experiences are suspiciously similar to my own, but dramatized, fabricated, and embellished in such a way that (i hope) would be classified more as an entirely fictional story with a message and a point, rather than an autobiography which has none

heavily inspired by interactions i've had during my commute with people on the bus, with the basic themes having been conceived all the way back towards the end of middle school (the story itself has evolved a lot since then)

also draws heavy inspiration from the works of salinger, camus, palahniuk, keyes, and of course schopenhauer

Silverchair - Frogstomp
Grunge
Debut album

Considering this album was made by a group of 15 year olds, it's definitely not bad, but I'm not the type to give bonus points for that. It's still super derivative and kinda boring to listen to in 2019. I really like the cover and title, though.

Also, I legitimately thought for the longest time that "Tomorrow" was a fucking Pearl Jam song. It's not.

YouTube

6/10





Red House Painters - Ocean Beach
Slowcore
Fourth album

A bit of a disappointment compared to their previous work. I would recommend you listen to their first self-titled album instead. Or just listen to Mark Kozelek's current project, Sun Kil Moon.

6/10





Smog - Wild Love
Lo-fi
Fourth album

Bill Callahan makes some pretty interesting music, to say the least. I wouldn't say that I love this record, but he experiments with just enough weird shit for me to feel not only intrigued by it, but I respect it enough to give it a relatively higher score. It's just very hard to recommend or even describe because of all its eccentricities.

Give a listen and judge for yourself.

YouTube

7/10





Wilco - A.M.
Country rock
Debut album

I know people like Wilco and he seems pretty popular, but I assume it's because of his latter discography, because his first album wasn't doing shit for me. I was bored the whole way through.

5/10





Soul for Real - Candy Rain
R&B
Debut album

It's okay, I guess. Not really my genre.

6/10



Just seven more albums from the following artists before I can put March in the books:

Faith No More
Big L
Mudhoney
Juliana Hatfield
Ol' Dirty Bastard
Skid Row
Suddenly, Tammy!

Wikipedia also lists an Our Lady Peace album called Naveed, but when I check its specific article, it says that it came out in 1994. AllMusic considers it a 1995 release. Discogs considers it a 1994 release. So, I dunno who to trust on that one. I think I'll just opt to not listen to it, if only to have less shit on my plate, and call it good. Not a huge deal.

Gaming / Re: What fighting games have you played?
« on: May 13, 2019, 09:35:43 PM »
Been playing fighting games all my life, really.

My first fighting game was probably the SNES version of Killer Instinct back when I was about 6 or 7 years old. I sucked horribly at it, but since it's such a mash-friendly game, what with its crazy autocombo system, it made it super fun and easy for me to get into the genre, and the awesome characters, music, and graphics sure helped a lot. Sabrewulf was my guy, since he was cool and was the first character I could consistently perform extended combos with, and I dabbled with Spinal a couple times after watching my dad beat Eyedol with him, but once I really started getting good at the game, I picked up Cinder and never went back. So much fun. I'll still pop it in every now and then to this day.

Around the same time, my uncle had a Sega Saturn, where I would play games like Battle Arena Toshinden Remix, Virtua Fighter II, and Virtua Fighter Kids.

Battle Arena Toshinden is pretty shitty by modern standards, but it could be looked upon as the spiritual predecessor of the Soul Calibur franchise, which I briefly got into in my teens. I had fun with it, but it's pretty anime and the physics and engine feel like ass today. Would not recommend.

Virtua Fighter II was my first Virtua Fighter, and I thought it was pretty awesome. This was before the games started getting extremely technical, and everyone jumped like they were on the moon. I liked playing Akira and Lion. Virtua Fighter Kids is the same game, except the characters were replaced with chibi versions of themselves. Kind of weird to look at as an adult, but this is the version I played the most as a kid.

I played a lot of Mortal Kombat games, but only at a friend's house, since MK was the only fighting game that he liked. I kinda hated it, not only because he was way better at the games than me, but also because I just wasn't a fan of the gratuitous violence. Just never really found it all that entertaining, and that mentality more or less carried into my adulthood (though I tolerate that kind of stuff a lot more now, I still find it stupid, and misses the point of what makes fighting games fun).

I only have vague memories of playing Virtua Fighter IV Evolution, but I remember it being fucking sick. Definitely my favorite in that series. V is cool, too.

Super Smash Bros. is a series I have a VERY long history with, but I barely consider them to be fighting games in the traditional sense, so I don't know how much I should get into them here. Basically, I adore every single game in the series (except Brawl and Smash 4) and Melee in particular is a game I would make passionate love to if I could.

SoulCalbur II is a lot of fun. I remember playing the story mode for days with my boy Raphael. I wanted to get the version where you could play as Link, but understandably, he was only the guest character of the GameCube version, which I never bothered to get into way after I stopped caring so much about SC. I had the PS2 version instead, where the guest character was Heihachi from Tekken. I never really got into Tekken, but I still own every Tekken game for some reason.

My first foray into Street Fighter was the Anniversary Collection for PS2, which had every single version of Street Fighter II (at the time), as well as Street Fighter III: Third Strike, which currently stands as my favorite fighting game of all time. I love this game to bits, even though I can't play it for shit. I just think it's beautiful in every way.

Sonic Gems has Sonic the Fighters in it, which is pretty dope for what it is.

PS1 had this really cool 3D fighter called Ehrgeiz: God Bless the Ring which featured a handful of Final Fantasy VII characters as guests + had a bonus dungeon crawler mode which probably wasn't very good, but I still enjoyed it.

Street Fighter IV was the first fighting game that I took seriously and wanted to get good at, because I had finally found friends on the Internet who wanted to play it with me. Lots of memories of this one. I followed all the big tournaments and had my favorite top players. It gets a bad rap, but I think the game deserves more praise for basically reviving the entire genre of fighting games and making them cool again with the advent of high speed Internet streaming and whatnot.

Street Fighter x Tekken was an embarrasing mess that I'm sad I paid money for.

Street Fighter V is the last traditional fighting game I got into. Sadly, it's not great. I tried my VERY best to love the game, but the game is simply unlovable. It has lovable aspects, and it had a lot of potential, but Capcom is basically the worst company ever and I hate them so much for refusing to fix this hot mess.

Never got into any gay anime fighters because they suck and are gay.
Never got into Marvel vs. Capcom, because I prefer to actually know what's going on during fights.
Never got into Injustice because it's ass.
Never got into the new Killer Instinct because fuck Xbox.
Never got into Skullgirls because it's trash.
Never got into King of Fighters which I kinda regret, it looks cool, but there's so many games.
Never got into DoA for obvious reasons.
Never really gave a shit about Street Fighter Alpha, I only like the main series.
Pokkén was a huge disappointment; I wanted it to be a 2D fighter.
PlayStation All Stars was a joke.

You just activated a trap card on yourself:
Tupac, an overrated rapper released his third album in 1995.

You'll have to endure listening to 3 hours, 5 minutes and 9 seconds of "thug bullshit".

You'll have my salute once it's all over.
yeah, i covered that one already

i do agree that he's overrated, but i still gave that record a 7/10

29
frankly i don't know why anyone cares about their gender to begin with
That's why it's called "Comfortable In Skin"

you can't really understand why some people are uncomfortable if you never have been
i'm honestly pretty far from being comfortable in my own skin, but for unrelated reasons that have more to do with my disgust for humans in general

i don't enjoy being a male human—i actually have a chronic and preoccupying hatred for it—but that's not to say i'd rather be anything else

so i feel as though i'm in a state where i completely understand, yet i don't understand at all, which is very weird
