    Man, the PSO 2 anime is way darker than the game. I was not expecting this many hacked up bodies. :V

    No? Nothing suggested that the Composer was going to stop running the Reaper's Game in general after his big game with the Conductor.

    The game the Composer and the Conductor were having was entirely centered around the preservation or destruction of the Shibuya district of Tokyo, not the entire world. In fact, the Composer in TWEWY is only ever stated to govern over Shibuya in particular, suggesting that there are probably other Composers governing other wards of Tokyo, as well as likely other Composers tending to other cities.

    At any rate, the Composer's reason for wanting to erase Shibuya was because he'd concluded that the people were corrupt, incapable of changing to better themselves, and so their lives were basically a net negative to the world. That said, despite winning the game against the Conductor, in the process the Composer got enough evidence right to his face that even one of the most misanthropic Shibuya residents he'd seen - Neku - had been able to make a gigantic turn for the better, which counters the logic behind erasing Shibuya in the first place.

    Looking for interest in a possible QQ Minecraft server, probably modded. I've made a specific discussion thread here, so please go there if that sounds like a fun idea to you.

    Interesting. I looked beforehand, didn't see that for some reason. Looking at it now, do you know if it was ever at least updated to a newer Minecraft version? Because 1.8 is... old. To put it lightly. Still might be interested in starting my own even if not, if there's enough people interested in a modded one.

    It's on the newest version. The nether updated and there's new biomes but the structures weren't deleted so there's still a never hub.

    He was talking about something with caffeine. You'll need it desperately once you finally reach phase of "Ok, just one more turn and I'm done. For real this time. Last 875 times don't count."

    Not really something that happens with Paradox games, those are real time with pause not turn based. That said he'll still need it for the later parts of a campaign where the game starts to slow down and it'll take longer and longer for in game time to pass. Something Paradox to my knowledge was never truly able to solve fully though attempts were made.

    More like, "welcome to Paradox grand strategy games; you'll want something to either keep you up or knock you out, depending on your preferences and needs".

    I'd settle for knowing why there's a chat menu or notepad pop up thingy on my screen, how I made it appear, and how to make it fuck off again. :V

    Press the ` key (top left of your keyboard, next to the 1 and esc keys).
    As for why it's there, that's for console commands. You can type in help to get a list or go to the wiki to for a more easily read list. Actual chat is only a thing in multiplayer and looks much different.

    If you don't spend about half an hour fiddling with stuff before you even hit unpause for the first time in a campaign, you probably missed something. :V
    TBF some Paradox games could actually use a persistent notepad. Anno 2070 had one and it was invaluable for determining and remembering target build ratios.

    Depends on which game you're playing and which nation you're playing as. Perhaps it's my experience with having taken part in multiplayer but typically you don't spend that much time paused, at least for the start. Now if you're doing something cheesy/difficult ala Florryworry you're going to be pausing a lot because you've got a lot of shit to keep an eye on and respond to.
    I've never played anno so I can't say I know but you can semi use it as a notepad by typing stuff in, pressing enter then later using arrow keys to go over previously inputted commands. Not ideal but at least it's a thing.

    I liked Stellaris until the Megacorp DLC/update.
    Then it got too micromanagement-y for my tastes.

    It's definitely my Arumba and CHG experience talking. :V
    Factorio should have this feature natively, but at least there's a mod for it.

    So you guys think they're going to make a remake of Code Veronica they've already made remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3.

    I'd rather they do something new than make another remake. Bring on Revelations 3. They kinda left us hanging on that whole bad guys getting away with the T-Abyss ending from the first one.

    I'm very much enjoying Immortals Fenyx Rising at the moment. I was expecting to give this a pass, but a friend recommended it to me and I'm glad they did.

    The game is gorgeous, the combat is fun, the dialogue is hilarious and Zeus' commentary makes everything a thousand times better. This is the sneak hit of the year for me.

    I've been liking it alright 'cept for the crashes. I wasn't expecting them to roll with the gods being their assholish selves but they totally did and it's kind of hilarious.

    Sorry to hear about it crashing on you, it's run like a dream for me.

    The gods being assholes is absolutely the best part, the game keeps making me laugh and I love it.
