  1. Looking for some new anime, what do y'all recommend based on the following list of stuff I've seen and liked? FMA:Brotherhood, Magi, Black Butler, Soul Eater, My Hero Academia, One Punch Man, Hellsing Ultimate, Attack on Titan
  2. Omg I'm in heaven....just had my first burger in like 10 years...lettuce, onion, tomato, mayo, ketchup, and cheese.

    So gooooood....


    And so far it hasn't made me sick, yay!

      Time for some hamburger steak smothered in brown onion gravy. Yummmmm!  :squee:


  3. I just fucking love being judged for my shitty mental health, especially from fellow Bronies.  :okiedokieloki:

      @Kyoshi Ehhh idk about that. I've talked to a few people from various places, particularly India, and based on what they said about their experiences I think they got us beat in that department. Here we actually have places to go for help that are pretty good (not perfect obv, but it's getting better all the time), over there it sounds like even the places to go for help end up judging and shaming.

      I don't know, never been there. I simply hate this country.

      @Kyoshi it's not *all* bad. Theres plenty who "get it", like you and me. The people who dont just yell louder and more obnoxiously. :p

      But yeah, doesnt mean it still doesnt suck though.

  4. *Sees Bethesda screwing up more with FO76 by adding pay to win features and banning a player for having 'too much ammo' after 900 hours of playtime*



    Srsly, Bethesda.....what. Drugs. Are. You. Taking??

    Hope this appropriate for this thread, but thoughts on my WIP of Best Princess?

    Rainbow Dash Fan Club

    Y'know, Dash is probably the only EQG character design I actually *like*. Not sure why. I think it might be some perceived sense of realism, everyone else just seems...I dunno, off. Kinda turns me off of EQG overall. Meanwhile, have some Dashie doing what she'd probably end up doing IRL:
  7. The poniverse server error page is adorably heartbreaking....


    1. Once In A Blue Moon

      Once In A Blue Moon

      I've almost mentioned it in casual conversation twice*, only to stop myself at the last minute when I remember that I'm talking to non-bronies.



      *what, you mean you don't talk about website error messages over a cup of tea?

    Animation The last Anime you watched?

    They'd probably like One Punch Man as well.
  11. Found this while looking for things to satisfy my dogfighting needs while I wait to be able to play AC7. 3 flyable planes, 3 demo missions so far, and I gotta say, this looks damn good for how early it is in it's crowdfunding lifespan. Graphics are nice, sound design is really good, and the flight physics are some of the best I've seen (keeping in mind this is arcade style, not a full simulation like, say, DCS.) One of my favorite touches is how they actually have missiles drop away from your plane before igniting their engines, I've seen very few arcade style flight sims remember to have that incorporated. On that note, what have some of your favorite arcade style flight sims been? Modern or WWII based, doesn't matter. I'm personally fond of the HAWX games, while they're a bit less realistic even for an arcade game, I liked the ability they included to swap into a flight mode that lets your plane essentially Tokyo Drift for some sick acrobatics. Like I said, not the most realistic of things, but felt and looked cool as hell

    I find that odd. If you like Hetalia, there's others you'd probably enjoy.

    Gaming What's your biggest criticism of RDR2?

    This is my first Rockstar game, so I can't speak as to RDR2's similarities with, say, GTAIV, but I will say this: the intricate animations do take some getting used to, but honestly, I've grown to like them. As UpIsNotJump says in the video I linked, it actually helps you get deeper into character. Sure, it does take up more time, but that's just something you have to come to accept, and it actually helps with the feel of the 'Old West' setting, meaning everything is a bit slower, more relaxed. I'm finding that my time with RDR2 has chilled me out more than any other game in recent memory, hunting and fishing and just exploring is a great way to just turn your brain off and veg. Granted, that's not for everyone, but then, this game probably isn't for that kind of player in the first place, that's the point XP.
  14. *Disclaimer: This thread is meant to be about the singleplayer mode, not Red Dead Online. So Red Dead Redemption 2 has been out for a bit now, and most of us have had a chance to complete at least one playthrough (or at least get a decent ways into the game). Now, don't get me wrong, it's a damn good game, and gorgeous as hell, but it's not this level of good: This would imply there's literally nothing wrong or worthy of critiquing in the game, which is objectively just not true. So my question is, as the title says: what, in your opinion, is the biggest thing worth critiquing, the biggest drawback, the biggest annoyance you have with RDR2? Personally, I think mine would be the bounty/wanted system. While yes, the story does try and steer you towards an honorable playthrough (or at least ending), you are, at the end of the day, an outlaw-a criminal. And they appropriately included robbery mechanics-why include them if they're not meant to be used? But the way the wanted system works, from response time of the law, to the law's omniscience, to the convoluted and ill-explained (both in game and by the devs themselves) mechanic to remain anonymous, to the poor AI when it comes to receiving a bounty for self defense or NPC stupidity (seriously, get those horses some turn signals ), this entire portion of the game just seems poorly implemented at best, flat out broken at worst. Especially when it comes to non-story train robberies. There's simply no way whatsoever to get in and get out before the law arrives, and they spawn whether a witness actually gets away or not, and spawn within seconds of you taking out the engineer. This is one of the most lucrative activities in terms of time-efficiency and payout (unless you google gold bar locations and hunt them down, but that feels like cheating); but with how it's working it's pointless because you get a bounty worth as much or more than the loot you snag from the train. Kind of takes the 'outlaw' out of actually being...well, an outlaw. And what's sad is Rockstar is likely not going to implement a fix for this, because it would require a drastic overhaul of a base/core system from the ground up. I'd say that's something that would/should detract from a perfect 100 review score, hm? I also agree with a lot of the points made in this vid-the good and the bad-and I'd be curious to hear people's thoughts on this as well (also linking this vid because I like sharing teh lulz ):
