        Only reason I'd get one would be for Sonic Mania, honestly. Otherwise, I'll stick to my Xbox, thanks.

        I got it for "Collection of Mana", which, as far as I know, is the first and only release of "Seiken Densetsu 3" for the United States. I also wanted it for Metroid Prime 4... sometime in the future. Plus... Pokémon. But, I preordered the remake of "Link's Awakening" and the new Animal Crossing, which will be the first time I've played one of those games.

        Don't feel bad. If you ask me, i'll honestly answer that the problem was them. They wanted it. Soon or later they will find reasons to cause trouble to you or other ppl that they don't like. And thing'd still happen this way. I'm also glad that the guild owner is actually a good guy and thoughtful enough to decide it that way.

        Ha ha, I know the next part of my game. I just need to go back and fix some dialogue in my opening cutscene to make it shorter, then I can move on. I've been dreaming of EDF pretty regularly for the past two weeks. :D So much to do in EDF 5! And I gotta beat 4.1 on Inferno too...

        I'm 40 missions in and we have no plan for defeating the fortress, but it sometimes makes an appearance to lay the hurt on any army we're using, as it "walks through the area" and deploys a ton of troops. The Godzilla thing went really well too...
        Jul 18, 2019
      3. Tai_MT
        Tai_MT
        With Godzilla, it just shows up in the middle of a regular mission and the objective changes to, "Take it out!". You pour on damage until it's almost dead and it runs away, out of the map. I assume you can kill it, but I couldn't pour on enough damage. The dialogue says we retreated. But, about 20 missions later... We've got specialized tanks now to kill it, and a huge operation to do so.
        Jul 18, 2019
      4. Tai_MT

        So, we go through the motion of the mission and the new tanks actually do a crapload of damage to it, and we actually put it down. However, in the middle of the fight, the radio is alive with chatter about a new giant monster headed our way. We are like, "We'll just kill it too!". It doesn't work. It smashes through our new tanks and we're told to Retreat. Overall, just much better storytelling.

        I just did that though I did July - June of next year. Probably an old habit to use that as my job also goes on an academic year schedule, with July being the odd month that some schools put in the previous year and some put in the next year.

        I have a massive backlog of games and other things I need to complete. I'd like to add my demo to the list, I'm just not sure I'd complete it. I need to clear a sizeable chunk of my plate. :D I might add small pieces of my game to the list to be completed before the end of the year. That might make me feel better about it.

        That's been around forever. A dev made a rogue like game in the 80's and when interviewed he said that every time someone beat it, he would find out how they did, then nerf that strategy in the next update.

      If I'm meant to lose a fight, just cutscene it out. Don't make me fight it. It makes me angry when I'm winning and you force a loss on me.

        ...a cutscene that I *should* be able to prevent through the means of normal gameplay (like a villain walking up right in front of me and kidnapping a character, or outright overpowering my characters). To me, that can be worse than the tease. I know there must be some better way - but I don't know what that way is.

        The best way I've ever seen it tackled was the way it was done in Chrono Trigger. On your first playthrough, there seems to be a point where you MUST lose. You MUST lose Chrono. The thing is... You don't have to.

        You can beat the game. Right here. Right now. If you do, you get an ending and everything.

        I think this is the way it should be tackled. But, that's my personal preference.

        The policy is that all "interactions" with our "Tickets" are recorded and sent to the one who put the work ticket in. The guy outright lied about talking with me and telling me how to fix the problem, then put the Ticket as "Solved". He wrote in it as if I wouldn't be able to read it, and as if it were going to only go to his boss. :D

Just... ugh...

        I'd posit that if everyone owned a gun and there was a good chance that the person you threated with one could/would shoot you back, or shoot you first... There's a lot less shootings. I mean, the "Wild West" in the United States proved that. There were remarkably few "shoot outs" and "shootings" during that period despite everyone owning a gun.

        Actually, I'd argue that the reason most gun owners use a gun is for hunting or for self-defense. Or for suicide (iirc, most gun deaths in US are actually from suicide).

        Clearly not all states are the same. Mine (well the one I used to live in) would shut down over ice on the road...that thawed by 6AM...without telling anyone so that if you were supposed to be there that morning you'd drive an hour and a half in the ice only to be met by a sign on the door that says "call so-and-so to reschedule if you were supposed to be here today".

        @The Stranger Real storm. We're supposed to get snow, high winds, probably ice, and like 20 inches of snow (60cm).

        @Philosophus Vagus I live in South Dakota. Storms like this are fairly common, so are harsh winters. Most of the winter weather is funneled here from Canada because it hits The Black Hills. We have unreasonably hot summers too :D But, it's windy every single day here.
