DuskAtDawn

Of the Thousand Faces, from Somewhere else.

Might have been spending too much time on SB. Rewatched RWBY S2E1, and all I thought was "Wow. What did the calcs for this look like?" Oct 22, 2017 at 3:31 PM

        Indeed they were. Up until Project 8, anyways - THAW, THUG and THUG2 are the only games I vividly remember playing as a teenager. I know I played other games, but I don't remember them anywhere nearly as clearly.

      Ugh. Oblivion modding is a pain to learn.

        Everyone agrees to use Wrye Bash to mod, but to do that you need Oblivion in a non-program files folder. Which causes a runtime error when you go to play it and steam throws a fit.

        Seriously. They cut a flap into your eye with a knife before the laser does its work. They do this while you're fully awake and aware without any sedation - just eyedrop anesthetic. They have a suction that keeps you from blinking during the procedure.

        And you pay around $2.5k per eye for the privilege. No thanks, I'll stick to glasses, shit vision or no.

        Well, at the time I wrote that I thought it seemed to be more popular over there than here - they have six anime that explicitly came from it, and loads of one-off cameos like in OHSHC. Since then, I've seen just how many fucking adaptations it's had in the west, and I stand corrected.

        "Mighty," e says. Pfah! It's packed full of poorly-named VNs with your typical faceless unsexy protags, and the top-tier game is... an old school dungeon crawler?! Only thing there worth buying is HuniePop, and if you're OK with that kind of thing being on your Steam account, you already own HuniePop. /rant

        So whatever Shaman King was lacking of those two things is why its lacking in fanfiction.

        As an addendum to Cambrian's second point, there should be enough of a magic system to inspire the imagination, but enough unexplained aspects of it to allow for freedom. Shaman King's magic system is pretty simplistic and complete, so finding ways to exploit it are more difficult.

        As soon as someone writes a sufficiently juicy crossover, others will follow. Like with that one Fate/Campione cross spawning a Lot of copycats. Or Hill of swords starting the ZnT crosses.

        The setting actually allows for nearly any crossover.

        A couple of my favorite Twilight fics are:

        Mitternacht by Nyteviper - Hellsing, Iscariot, and Millennium all head to Forks. It ends up about as well as you'd think.

        The Wedding Crashers by DasMervin -
        Sam, Dean, and Castiel accompany Leah to Jacob and Renesmee's wedding. It is completely fucking hilarious.

        Wish Sony didn't own Bloodborne and Demon Souls. Those two games are never gonna see a PC release, which is a shame since they both look real good. Well, Bloodborne looks good when the framerate isn't tanking b/c of fire.

        Was kind of surprised; I'd bailed halfway through season 11 last time, so hadn't watched any past that. It's not quite the same animation quality of the freelancer saga, but it's damn good regardless, and the comedy's still there.

        Only thing I missed of any significance was Ornifex, and I'm fairly sure I don't give a damn about anything she's got to offer this build. Maybe Homing Soul Mass, but probably not even that.

        Really late to this, but whatever. Just so you know, Ornifex sells you literally every boss soul weapon, while Straid sells some boss weapons and all boss soul spells.

        Also Ornifex is probably the nicest character in the entire series.

        Re: Dark Souls 2; I'm beginning to suspect DS isn't hard so much as it is a series of increasingly dick moves amplified by increasingly dickish players, combined with poor platforming controls while it incentivizes platforming. Once you learn not to trust either, it's not so tricky.
