  • I've been binge-playing "Breath of the Wild" the last week or so. I don't touch the crafting system much and it does annoy me a lot.

    I went and grabbed a guide. Turns out, fish are the best things to cook with. Each ingredient adds a specific amount of time/points towards a buff. You can't get the level 2 or level 3 versions of things unless you add enough ingredients to get the "points" to do it.

    For example, if you want a level 2 "Sneak" buff, you need to get 6 points of "Sneak" into the dish. The easiest way is with two "Silent Princess" flowers. You can also use 3 "Silent Shrooms" or 3 "Stealthfin Trout". Anything else only adds a single point. You'll never get to Level 2 "sneak" buff without one of those 3 ingredients.

    Likewise, the longest you can get without a "critical success" or "monster extract" is about a 10 minute buff. Though, you can also craft during a "Blood Moon" for a 100% chance on a "Critical Success".

    Man this guide means that 90% of all harvestables are worthless.
    Nintendo Switch Motion Controls. I hate them. With a passion. Breath of the Wild puzzles using them require me to cheat to beat them.

    :o I may be wrong, but I dont think the New Switch is going to have motion controls.... Im a little curious how playing a game with those mechanics will go. But yeah, I hate them too.

    The guy from "New Radicals", who sang "You Get What You Give" wrote a LOT of famous hit songs... Holy crap, he's amazing with lyrics.

    It's pretty great, to be honest. "Oh, this guy was in these bands, that's why they sound similar, and still badass". It's pretty interesting stuff. :D

    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.

    I've been keeping a "Journal" for FFXIV, written in the form of a Blog in a file. Lately, I've been looking for places to host it...

    Well, places that don't look shady. Why does every website builder or Blog site look shady as crap? Even if you pay for the platform?
    I broke up a Guild in FFXIV for telling a bad joke and getting bullied over it. :( life is crazy sometimes.

    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.

    Dream of EDF? Plan out the next part of your game?

    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 just discovered EDF5 has 110 levels. 4 classes and 5 difficulties. It awards an achievement every 5% game completion. 110 levels for 5%.

    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...
    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.
    Tai_MT
    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 need to make a list of things I should finish before the end of this year. I should add my demo to that list... but I probably won't.

    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.
    It always seems weird to me that current developers, indie developers, and even some devs on these forums treat players as "the enemy".

    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.
    Dwarf Fortress is apparently coming to Steam with an official Graphics Set. o_O Added to Wishlist.
    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.

    In a game I plan on making, this will be in there but as a tutorial level which can be skipped. Any used items would be restored after battle.

    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.
    It is strange to me to be called "stingy" for not paying for the meal and movie of my date, when she demands I pay for her meal and movie.

    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

    @Tai_MT, I do not understand why people don't their jobs if they do not want to do that job quits and find a new job. I guess he hates his job, but cannot find another job.

    Borderlands is more fun to play together... we have to complete two versions of Borderlands 2 and all it's DLC... and start the Pre-Sequel (which we bought after the announcement, since we've never played it)… and I have yet to complete the Robot Revolution DLC achievements from Borderlands 1... Just... ugh...

    I'm not even sure if he wants to pick up the "Game of the Year" edition of Borderlands 1 as well as the Telltale games and get those achievements as well... I just... no... I'm not doing Borderlands 1 a second time. Underdome Riot was the worst DLC of any game I've ever played.

Broke the 1,000 hour mark on MV last night! Most of that was spent on 1 project, with most of that project being worked on outside the engine so far.
School books are so expensive... I just paid a fortune. :(
