  1. ^ Actual story written about actual human beings, beautiful writing, insane area design, great soundtrack and well paced grind/gameplay. Easily better than FF6/7/9/10/Chrono Trigger in my mind.
  2. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    wtf is this Dororo I might have to sample this series
  3. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    Promised Neverland wins best OP and maybe best anime Kaguya is also best OP and is in the running for best romcom Alicization is fantastic (when you watch it on 4x speed in VLC like I do)
  4. What games are you currently playing?

    Pokemon mainline games are absurdly easy and simplistic, only the romhacks are close to worth playing. If you think turn based is boring you should play Into the Breach, which is an example of how you do turn based right. Turn based is super dependant on the UI and mechanics and it's easy to do wrong. Currently playing tons of ATLAS and it's an amazing game which has been patched amazingly fast, all of the release issues are solved and it's one of the best games to play with a large guild ever. And one of the worst to play solo.

    I don't think United need a Virgil Van Dyk at centre back. They need someone, but frankly a 2017 Bailly would be good enough, but they need a Sergio Busquets in the midfield if they want to win the Champion's League, and fullbacks who bring a lot more. There's a big difference between what United needs tomorrow, and what United needs to be world class There will be plenty of destinations other than Madrid in 18 months when De Gea can walk away on a free, he will have the world at his feet.
  6. Barclays Premier League 2018/19

    Utd can't compete at the top until they get a 2nd world class midfielder, and maybe 2 fullbacks, and honestly there isn't any to be found in world football for love or money, even if United throw the piggy bank out there's nobody really available.
  7. Barclays Premier League 2018/19

    The fact there isn't even a shitty "The Sun" link between United and a decent defender, even for summer transfer, makes you wonder if all of De Gea's efforts are even worth it. Like hopefully he doesn't want to leave this summer, if he wants to leave on a free in 2020 good on him he deserves the massive wages a free transfer will get him.

    City are not that much better relatively speaking than the United/Arsenal teams at the turn of the century, people forget just how stacked those teams were because there were far fewer big clubs competing for talent. City are better only in the sense that the on field standard has risen as money and professionalism ratcheted up, so in an absolute sense they are better, but not exactly the best standard overall compared to the continent.
  9. Barclays Premier League 2018/19

    Definitely seems to be a massive must win the league silo mentality. Ofc they are in a brilliant position to do just that and statistically leading at Christmas makes it almost assuredly likely that they close it out, but the pressure is clearly ratcheting up massively on Liverpool, they HAVE to do it otherwise the entire project explodes. Liverpool will probably drop points to a side that isn't top 6 at some point, it's just likely, but Brighton doesn't seem more likely than any other opportunity

    FA Cup is extremely relevant in that it's a knockout football comp and it's supposed to be a measure of a team's ability to play knockout football. Especially in an era before the Champions League etc etc etc it was the avenue where you proved yourself in knockout football, and it remains extremely relevant in that sense under the idea that sides may still be a lot better at knockout football and turning up to a big game than they are at the 38 week grind. I wish there was a way for it to be taken more seriously because I like the philosophical idea of what knockout football represents. Also that the November internationals got the axe and there was a proper winter break instead. Unfortunately it exists in a football world where really players play an obnoxious amount of games that is basically unhealthy for them. The stories you hear about "this youth player was really good but he got injured because he playing two games a week is physically ridiculous for a developing body" is crazy. Being good at professional football is as much about being gifted the constitution and health work to not be injured while running a half marathon or more across a two game week as it is to being good.

    Like let's call a spade a spade, Klopp basically throws the FA cup every year and doesn't give the slightest shit, and Liverpool is the only club in the top 6 that does this. Probably a fair enough move but there's no other possible excuse, Klopp played maybe the best back 4 he had available but he didn't play close to the best side he could have
  12. Net deck a deck, go onto Duelingbook and draw into opening hands and play out turn 1s to play through the combos and read the cards and try to teach yourself to follow the rules and how all the rules changes actually work. The amount of actual rulings that have changed in that time has been pretty ridiculous, no summon Chaos Sorceror auto remove a monster for example, so there is a lot to catch up on.

    Paying out an employment contract isn't necessarily legal in all cases. If that was true clubs could just pay out 4 years of a player's wages whenever in order to get a transfer. Realistically this never happens. The details of Poch's contract are something I would only trust when his agent leaks it to the Times or the Telegraph, as commonly happens, and not before. Until then Poch's 5 year expensive contract is a black box that can't be opened, and nobody can predict the contents
  14. Barclays Premier League 2018/19

    I think the idea United get Pochettino without being bent over by Daniel Levy is idealistic at best. At worst Levy just doesn't let Poch leave
  15. What games are you currently playing?

    Deadfire is equally as good as Original Sin 2 but I would not play it on a tablet. Divinity is turn based, Deadfire is real time with pause, and it's super important you understand how the armor classes works in the game to actually win at it. Also start on hard difficulty because normal is absurdly easy. It's an RPG and an extremely good one not much else to say.
  16. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    It better be Kyouma!
  17. What games are you currently playing?

    Crosscode is a late entrant for game of the year for me, of all the 2D platformer style games it's by FAR the best Pillars of Eternity Deadfire is also amazing now it's up to patch 4.0, pretty much silky smooth.
  18. Investments

    There are plenty of revenue returning assets that are not vulnerable to a rise in interest rates or a run on the stock market because of a perceived price to earnings overvaluing. Aka the bond market. Aka literally any other asset than the stock market Finance 101
  19. It seems completely crazy to cut off a friendship with him just because of his wife. If worst just comes to worse like, be his friend, avoid all social engagements with the wife ever, and if that massively reduces your time with the dude so be it, but you are not "done forever" because of this woman who you may or may not meet socially. If he is inseparable with her and takes her everywhere alright, I guess you can't see him that often, but guy friendships are still real friendships even if you hang out *once every two years*. It's just part of being a dude when you see someone you haven't contacted for 10 years and you act like best buddies. I think that's the absolute worst case scenario. I think the idea that you intentionally blow up your friendship and make him hate your guts because you want to keep his marriage together because his wife hates you because you want him to be with his child is a completely crazy thing you should absolutely never do because it will change nothing about his marriage, at all. If the woman hates you just don't be in the same room as the woman, ever, and let his family life play out.
  20. Can't agree more with the first page. There's also legitimately probably some sick Europeans and Japanese guys who don't make these lists that nobody knows about so yeah. Discussion on EU community and the OCG community vs just the NA community is way too hard. I think the tl;dr is that it's very hard to crown the absolute greatest ever and nobody should even try. I am pretty sure when there are a number of repeat worlds attendees who don't get mentioned or discussed and it's only old names from Metacritic.com who are even mentioned we should just give up and not pretend we have a true global vision of the Yugioh community.

    :thinking:
  22. The best way to play budget TCGs is to build a MTG or Yugioh cube, but yeah card games are literally just a money sink avoid at all costs because MTG business model is aids. Just play Assassin's creed or Red dead redemption.
  23. Just did Siwski and Budgeted, if anyone else has been unfairly deprived of their deserved 100 rep points please tell me and I'll boost you. Generally speaking I quit YGO because I was sick of the TCG grind, I wouldn't go to any other TCG except one that is dramatically different from YGO like Gwent or DBZ tbh. Just had enough of 50/50 card games in general and the DN grind, by the end I loved building decks, esp side decks, because years of practice at that point but I wasn't playing them out. Gwent is good, avoid Cancerstone.
  24. RAM ADVICE please

    Well I've never edited a 4K video in my life, but I asked people in the know about the whole 4K video editing ram thing and their answer was "all of it" and they decidedly recommended that 256-512gb of RAM in a Xeon is a worthwhile investment for a serious 4k video editor. So yeah I would say that 32GB is the answer
  25. CPU advice

    The return are actually great for specifically Ryzen AND Civilization 6 turn times on Intel CPUs. Apparently people who benchmark Civ 6 turn timers do find that it is bottle-necked by RAM clocks and not frequency at the upper limit. This is the only case in the entirety of video gaming though.
