2018-11-13 18:57:21.565112-08:00 austnaile which should help prevent me sitting there trying to furiously think of what I can do with sunforger to get myself out of whatever situation I found myself stuck in
2018-11-13 18:57:42.464453-08:00 austnaile but now I am not sure if I should add another card that can be tutored by sunforger
2018-11-13 18:58:01.995203-08:00 austnaile it would solve a weakness I had not considered but I am not sure how much of an edge case it is
2018-11-13 18:58:26.466542-08:00 austnaile during our last game josh cast a fog type spell which basically prevented one of my combat steps
2018-11-13 18:58:46.713522-08:00 austnaile which is super problematic for a deck that needs to win very quickly once its combo is in place
2018-11-13 18:59:10.075745-08:00 austnaile I could add skullcrack to the deck to force combat to occur through a fog but I am not sure how useful it is otherwise
2018-11-13 18:59:37.671167-08:00 austnaile if no one is running a fog effect it basically becomes a dead card unless someone is doing something super weird with life gain

2018-11-14 19:20:38.097589-08:00 mhoff|job good work news, I'm back on a fun open-ended feature addition rather than bug hunting
2018-11-14 19:20:50.779981-08:00 mhoff|job bad work news, its in the hell-codebase designed for and by demons
2018-11-14 19:23:30.493003-08:00 mhoff|job goofy news, I'm doing android work which means I get to request a specialist workstation
2018-11-14 19:23:47.092575-08:00 mhoff|job so rather than a bonkers desktop I'll have a crazy-ass bonkers desktop
2018-11-14 19:31:45.875039-08:00 DeChunk alright then
2018-11-14 19:34:59.982390-08:00 mhoff|job what're you up to sean?
2018-11-14 19:37:44.433175-08:00 DeChunk right now I'm playing Torchlight II
2018-11-14 19:38:17.983908-08:00 DeChunk because I picked it up on release and due to reasons beyond my control, stopped, and just forgot about it for the longest time
2018-11-14 19:38:23.724650-08:00 mhoff|job neat
2018-11-14 19:38:37.552743-08:00 mhoff|job I've never gotten into a diablo-like game for verylong, but have heard that one's pretty good
2018-11-14 19:39:43.676787-08:00 DeChunk it is. I really liked my runthough of Torchlight 1 (it came for free with the preorder of 2) and 2 is just a better version of that.
2018-11-14 19:40:02.742937-08:00 DeChunk plus, the tank class starts off with a giant wrench as a weapon, and that's just great
2018-11-14 19:49:34.762521-08:00 DeChunk and, I believe I have now beaten the game
2018-11-14 19:53:24.674525-08:00 mhoff|job huh, neat
2018-11-14 19:53:27.986469-08:00 mhoff|job how long'd it take?
2018-11-14 19:54:06.514453-08:00 DeChunk it didn't feel like too long
2018-11-14 19:54:30.225480-08:00 DeChunk I'll check the main menu in a bit to see if they have a stat for it
2018-11-14 19:55:59.703473-08:00 DeChunk huh, nope
2018-11-14 19:56:17.326716-08:00 DeChunk thought there might be a "total playtime" thing, but nope.

2018-11-14 19:56:49.508912-08:00 DeChunk I was telling Alex this a bit ago, but I'm surprised there isn't a cyberpunk themed diablo clone
2018-11-14 19:57:41.189141-08:00 mhoff|job why?
2018-11-14 19:59:49.058274-08:00 DeChunk it just seemed like an easy way to stand out from everyone else. Plus, you could have different upgrade slots be implants or like a computer board you wouldn't have to show on the model
2018-11-14 20:00:44.486769-08:00 DeChunk and with Snowcrash's glass nanoblades, it's not like the genre is adverse to combat
2018-11-14 20:01:28.291292-08:00 mhoff|job I mean, its not adverse to violence, but it does seem sorta adverse to the kind of grindy repeatable violence of a diablo-like?
2018-11-14 20:01:38.271170-08:00 mhoff|job I dunno, it could work
2018-11-14 20:01:52.000899-08:00 cone_ just make a nier diablo clone
2018-11-14 20:01:54.769319-08:00 cone_ prints money
2018-11-14 20:02:03.667377-08:00 cone_ who needs cyberpunk when you can go full cyber
2018-11-14 20:02:07.249186-08:00 mhoff|job you'd be cutting your way through craptons of rent-a-cops or whatever
2018-11-14 20:02:46.364734-08:00 mhoff|job I'd roll my eyes a bit but yeah, it seems plausible
2018-11-14 20:04:17.024559-08:00 DeChunk anyway, I gotta get to bed now. Talk to you guys tomorrow
2018-11-14 20:04:20.639339-08:00 mhoff|job cya
2018-11-14 20:04:29.680845-08:00 cone_ uh what
2018-11-14 20:04:36.449159-08:00 cone_ I was gonna make a joke about cyberpunk bartending
2018-11-14 20:04:39.872784-08:00 cone_ ....and there's a second now?
2018-11-14 20:05:31.830227-08:00 mhoff|job you mean the sequel to valhalla?
2018-11-14 20:05:46.534472-08:00 cone_ yes
2018-11-14 20:05:58.604123-08:00 mhoff|job yeah, I heard reference to tha
2018-11-14 20:05:59.547138-08:00 mhoff|job t
2018-11-14 20:06:44.315713-08:00 eldritch I think the cyberpunk grinding would work fine if you really rolled with the punk part
2018-11-14 20:06:55.237898-08:00 eldritch grind rent-a-cops
2018-11-14 20:06:57.926545-08:00 eldritch grind bots
2018-11-14 20:07:00.317199-08:00 eldritch grind gangs
2018-11-14 20:07:14.037460-08:00 eldritch everythings shitty and everyone wants you dead
2018-11-14 20:09:28.383671-08:00 mhoff|job I'd find the disconnect between "everything's shitty" and "you're apparently an unstoppable badass who can kill all threats"
2018-11-14 20:10:02.589605-08:00 mhoff|job but then again diablo's also maintains an oppressive atmosphere in spite of your ability to kick ass, so maybe I'm overestimating the issue
2018-11-14 20:17:08.916232-08:00 eldritch yeah, I was thinking like, the rent-a-cops are like what current security guards are, mostly minimum wage dudes in a uniform
2018-11-14 20:17:33.828785-08:00 eldritch other gangs are just other broke ass people like you
2018-11-14 20:17:49.072989-08:00 eldritch bots are the cheap mass produced models
2018-11-14 20:18:53.512795-08:00 eldritch and then maybe throw in some edge
2018-11-14 20:19:05.364192-08:00 eldritch for you
2018-11-14 20:19:45.688548-08:00 eldritch like you got some experimental implants volunteering for a sketchy ass R&D and they improved your [choose class]
2018-11-14 20:20:14.692318-08:00 eldritch man now I wanna read some more cyberpunk
2018-11-14 20:20:42.216855-08:00 eldritch I wish there was more takeshi kovachs books

2018-11-14 20:21:56.646615-08:00 eldritch the series is just sort of named after the main character
2018-11-14 20:22:01.786097-08:00 eldritch and the world is really damn cool
2018-11-14 20:23:21.366403-08:00 mhoff|job want to geek out about it?
2018-11-14 20:25:01.389951-08:00 eldritch normally yes, but I'm about to go to bed
2018-11-14 20:25:11.009119-08:00 eldritch I very much recommend the series
2018-11-14 20:33:06.704391-08:00 cone_ oof
