  1. I don't want to say too much about it, but go see it. It's a smartly executed horror movie that keeps the tension going like few films in the genre have and god damn does it have layers.
  2. I wasn't really curious about Mafia until this clusterfuck. This is pretty good advertisement.
  3. GOAT VIDEO UPDATE: Got together with my testing partner last night. None of the footage we generated was good/usable, for a few reasons (one match might be useful later as a how not to play Goats, I played so bad) (we figured out how to tilt our hands so the GoPro could see them and then promptly stopped doing it after turn 2 in all our matches) so we'll be making another go of it within the next two weeks. We'll use some cardboard or something so our hands can go flat on the mat w/o the opponent being able to see them since we don't have the muscle memory to keep our hands tilted properly.
  4. ^ lol nay @Goins we have to order the ones with moonspeak written on them if we want the cool art.
  5. Spiritualism allows you to bounce an active Decree, and unlike Trunade won't slow you down by resetting the timers on your traps so you can set up for a kill shot or Solemn it the next time they activate it.
  6. Continuous anything and Equips have a lot to prove in a Breaker/MST/Heavy/Dust x2 world, don't they? Premature, Snatch, and Call are the only three that are mained without controversy. I played in a goat tourney where the T.O. ruled Oppression to work the current way [I dissented but dropped it and figured I'd get proof later] in which case it'd be wayyy better than Bottomless, so I wanted to make sure that wasn't the case. Thanks @ACP
  7. Royal Oppression is bad in 2005, yes? I recall it working like described below by Jason Grabher-Meyer in the first paragraph from this 2008 article, but the 2007 citation makes me wonder if it was actually different in 2005 and was changed later, and then was changed again to the second paragraph's usage in 2008? Or if it's just part of his writing style, where one would want to reach back to something relevant to provide context for the change [and Oppression wasn't relevant pre-Gadgets]. Ever since the debut of Gadgets at 2007’s Shonen Jump Championship Orlando, there’s been a consistent ruling about continuous traps with activated effects: in order to activate the effect of a continuous trap like Ultimate Offering or Royal Oppression, it must be face up on the field first. That’s why a duelist that wanted to play carefully always flipped Royal Oppression in the opponent’s standby phase when he or she expected the opponent to attempt a special summon that turn. Doing so made Oppression a live play in response to future special summons. But just this past week a pair of new rulings on Royal Oppression overturned previous statements. It is now legal to respond to an inherent special summon, contact Fusion, or an effect that special summons a monster by flipping Royal Oppression and then immediately activating its effect. http://kperovic.com/metagame/yugiohc23d.html?tabid=33&ArticleId=9835
  8. I like how Pokemon Showdown! does their stuff, re: ranking and random matchmaking, and they use an ELO system. After you ladder a little while the really scrubbish stuff stops showing up. I also agree with what ACP said about dgz, that usefulness of that sim for the players who really want to git gud exists on the backs of the active Smogon community whose forums contain the userbase with the knowledge to shape the meta and induct competitive players. Even if you don't participate in Smogon you read them or derivatives of them if you want to do well on Showdown!
  9. yup, 'A' is the magic key, thanks ya'll.
  10. well, that's not wholly inaccurate.
  11. My right-click does the same thing holding down S does; just tested it versus the AI. Is there a file I can edit to look for key assignments? EDIT: are you all talking about Salvation? I'm running YGOPRO 1.033.A Percy.
  12. ^ exactly this. It's why the community hasn't embraced Percy with open arms and why we're waiting for Salvation's manual mode to get public approval or to see if Dueling Book is real. It's not that I'm not all about bluffing, it's that the program actively screws it up if you don't watch it like a hawk/act genteel about it. Playing IRL will be 1:1 to real gameplay in a way that Percy cannot be; tabletop simulator will be great once I name the images and put them into a folder but it's $20 on Steam so it's not a practical solution for everyone. Even then, in order to record duels with OBS from tabletop, we'd have to cover our screens in our respective opponent's hand "fields" which would be okay for me and my bro but wouldn't pass anyone's sniff test. I think the point of the video request is: 1.) make sure we're not Doing It Wrong, which is fair and the main reason I am eager to do it; if we are I'd rather know so we can stop being bad ASAP. 2.) if we're not, get some useful information, discussion and/or footage to promote goats with, which is a really nice side effect of recording duels. In order for anyone to judge #1, we have to have 1:1 gameplay, so that rules out Percy. We can't misleadingly edit individual duels, the worst we can do is be highly selective of what duels we choose to use for our 30-60 minutes. We could just record a match or two straight, and that's where we'll start, but I don't think anyone really learns anything from duels where the [drawing weak vs. drawing strong] gap between players is too big. If anyone has some quality control principles they use for recording "representative" duels let me know. Unless you guys think "warts and all" is a better principle and don't mind watching the "Trinity-into-Storm-and-BLS" hands play out.
  13. Oh yeah, for sure. We've hooked up with all the local animal lover groups on Facebook and stuff, we're just not getting any hits in our network so the lady asked me to try here too. We live in KY but we are willing to drive to other neighboring states for the right potential owner.
