2018-07-19 15:17:23.351950-07:00 eldritch ah, I wondered what that sudden feeling of
2018-07-19 15:18:02.698503-07:00 eldritch emptyness was
2018-07-19 15:28:30.598782-07:00 zaxcellent Yeah, sorry about that.
2018-07-19 15:28:50.582696-07:00 zaxcellent I really lowered the fullness quotient of the east coast when I flew away.
2018-07-19 16:44:37.857821-07:00 DeWork hey josh

2018-07-19 16:48:53.324700-07:00 DeWork told Maria about the Titans thing and she gave me the best phrase back
2018-07-19 16:49:04.106009-07:00 zaxcellent I'm drinking delicious Cider
2018-07-19 16:49:13.030690-07:00 DeWork "these characters are their golden goose, and they keep cooking it"
2018-07-19 16:49:28.317374-07:00 eldritch heh
2018-07-19 16:50:04.347514-07:00 wordlessRage GOD, I WISH I COULD MUSTER UP THE ENERGY TO BE MAD ABOUT THE TITANS THING
2018-07-19 16:50:16.217606-07:00 CaptainsLogBeta Zach Reizner: https://zach297.com/telegram_upload/hj3befyr7h4xktrzs.jpg
2018-07-19 16:50:22.861543-07:00 wordlessRage BUT THE FACT THAT THEY'RE ACTUALLY BRINGING CLONE WARS BACK HAS JUST USHERED AWAY ALL OF THE HATE IN MY SOUL
2018-07-19 16:50:44.768373-07:00 eldritch oo, sweet ass bottle
2018-07-19 16:50:52.987306-07:00 DeWork I never watched Clone Wars, because I was just never a huge Star Wars mark
2018-07-19 16:51:14.491839-07:00 DeWork heard good things, though
2018-07-19 16:51:27.711038-07:00 DeWork also, I second that remark about the sweet ass bottle
2018-07-19 16:51:49.746368-07:00 wordlessRage I AM AN INCREDIBLE STAR WARS MARK
2018-07-19 16:52:08.729417-07:00 wordlessRage WHEN THEY REVEALED THAT ASOHKA TANO WAS GONNA BE ON STAR WARS REBELS I FUCKING FLIPPED OUT
2018-07-19 16:52:26.745915-07:00 wordlessRage SO ANY MORE CHANCES TO SEE HER IN ACTION IS A GOOD THING IN MY BOOK
2018-07-19 16:53:01.265370-07:00 DeWork Oh she survived! I thought they showed her dying in RotS, but it's cool that she got to continue on.
2018-07-19 16:54:41.156773-07:00 wordlessRage SHE /MAYBE/ DIED IN REBELS
2018-07-19 16:54:43.866501-07:00 wordlessRage IT WAS UNCLEAR!
2018-07-19 16:55:18.680709-07:00 wordlessRage AND I ACTUALLY STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN AROUND TO WATCHING THE LAST SEASON OF REBELS, SO IT'S POSSIBLE THE INFORMATION IS OUT THERE AN I JUST DON'T KNOW
2018-07-19 16:55:32.285600-07:00 wordlessRage BUT YEAH, SHE WASN'T A JEDI WHEN ORDER 66 WENT DOWN SO SHE SURVIVED TO HELP THE REBEL ALLIANCE
2018-07-19 16:56:10.358355-07:00 DeWork Okay, because, like, a female around her age of her species was killed in the Order 66 massacre scene in Revenge of the Sith
2018-07-19 16:56:20.465398-07:00 DeWork on that green mushroom planet
2018-07-19 16:56:32.687332-07:00 DeWork that's why I thought that
2018-07-19 16:57:37.953509-07:00 wordlessRage NO, THAT'S A DIFFERENT JEDI MASTER OF HER SPECIES
2018-07-19 16:58:13.305851-07:00 DeWork which is fair
2018-07-19 16:59:20.397937-07:00 wordlessRage YUP

2018-07-19 17:01:03.838529-07:00 wordlessRage IT'S A GOOD FUCKING CARD
2018-07-19 17:01:17.261318-07:00 wordlessRage IT'S HOW A LOT OF ELVES DECKS IN MODERN WIN GAMES
2018-07-19 17:02:12.101465-07:00 eldritch ahhhh, its etb not cast

2018-07-19 17:07:23.766144-07:00 eldritch oh shit
2018-07-19 18:02:24.698310-07:00 austnaile hello
2018-07-19 18:02:43.553228-07:00 eldritch hey angus
2018-07-19 18:36:50.935280-07:00 needlesslyVerbose 'lo people
2018-07-19 18:39:37.963714-07:00 austnaile hello
2018-07-19 18:42:15.745484-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Hey Angus
2018-07-19 18:42:20.180289-07:00 needlesslyVerbose How've you been lately?
2018-07-19 18:42:34.421038-07:00 austnaile I have been pretty good
2018-07-19 18:43:02.402808-07:00 austnaile getting things lined up for next month when my substitute teaching jobs start
2018-07-19 18:43:20.800849-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Nice
2018-07-19 18:44:43.367861-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Have you seen any grumps lately?
2018-07-19 18:45:04.858577-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Both their series right now are ones I opened with "Ohhhh no"
2018-07-19 18:45:06.485797-07:00 austnaile no
2018-07-19 18:45:20.005199-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Sonic the Hedgehog and Skyward Sword
2018-07-19 18:45:34.195755-07:00 needlesslyVerbose But at least SO far they've actually been fine
2018-07-19 18:45:47.218009-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Given how long SS is though, I expect it to take a nosedive
2018-07-19 18:46:23.796512-07:00 DeWork the level select in Sonic probably saved that series, though
2018-07-19 18:46:29.452825-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Oh hell yeah
2018-07-19 18:46:41.154393-07:00 needlesslyVerbose There is NO WAY they would've kept going otherwise
2018-07-19 18:47:54.798367-07:00 needlesslyVerbose I never feel quite the hatred Arin does, especially for Sonic, but I freely admit Sonic 1 is not great
2018-07-19 18:48:18.783355-07:00 needlesslyVerbose I did enjoy 2 and 3 though, and he was snarking all through their 3 playthrough
2018-07-19 18:48:19.972245-07:00 austnaile sonic 1 is a weird game
2018-07-19 18:48:40.068147-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Well, 3 besides a few annoying moments
2018-07-19 18:48:50.896660-07:00 austnaile its got some good ideas but sonic 2 is just a legitimately better game because it has so much more refinement
2018-07-19 18:48:55.358236-07:00 needlesslyVerbose I kiiiiinda hated Carnival Night besides the music
2018-07-19 18:49:04.560163-07:00 DeWork Sonic 1 is meant to be played like Mario, with repeat playthroughs of earlier levels rewarding memorization
2018-07-19 18:49:44.270056-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Yeah, but later games realized they could tier the levels more often so that everyone finishes, you just repeat to finish /fast/
2018-07-19 18:50:21.210157-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Also, without spindash and with more on-rails or gotcha bits than ever, Sonic 1 is just really clunky feeling
2018-07-19 18:50:58.707017-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Still has /fantastic/ music though
2018-07-19 18:51:06.393318-07:00 austnaile it also has really weird death planes
2018-07-19 18:51:10.807659-07:00 needlesslyVerbose That's the one thing I'll always stand up for
2018-07-19 18:51:19.181077-07:00 austnaile and questionable crushing hit boxes
2018-07-19 18:51:20.704095-07:00 needlesslyVerbose In almost every Sonic game
2018-07-19 18:51:23.557750-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Yeeeaaah
2018-07-19 18:51:27.158681-07:00 austnaile looking at you marble garden
2018-07-19 18:51:53.704772-07:00 needlesslyVerbose I'm not a fan of crushing hit boxes in general really
2018-07-19 18:51:57.849259-07:00 DeWork I'm not disagreeing, but modern design choices make the playstyle of the old games feel odd
2018-07-19 18:54:09.632278-07:00 austnaile one thing I never really understood about sonic 1 versus sonic 2 was how they limited the play area
2018-07-19 18:54:31.434187-07:00 austnaile in sonic 1 if an area above the stage is "out of bounds" the ledge is too high to reach but it still exists
2018-07-19 18:54:44.641874-07:00 austnaile in sonic 2 they just tile the wall sprite up to the map limit
2018-07-19 18:54:55.665018-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Yeah, that makes more sense
2018-07-19 18:55:44.497878-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Also, in the middle of Arin's grumbling he did hit one point I can agree with
2018-07-19 18:56:00.332842-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Which is that Sonic takes up too much space on the screen for the speed of the game
2018-07-19 18:56:08.833205-07:00 ubiquitousHaggis very much so
2018-07-19 18:56:31.390663-07:00 austnaile zach what is this madness
2018-07-19 18:56:38.179442-07:00 austnaile I blame you exclusively
2018-07-19 18:56:55.131602-07:00 austnaile but yes sonic is a bit too big for the speed of the game
2018-07-19 18:57:23.364045-07:00 needlesslyVerbose Yeah, I can kinda understand at the time it might've been hard to keep the detail level with it zoomed out
2018-07-19 18:57:39.260162-07:00 needlesslyVerbose But I'm glad that later 2D games he's a bit smaller
