#16525176 So... What are you playing? (general discussion)

Posted by torgo on 27 April 2018 - 01:30 PM

Lolol, at first I thought this was a half-baked joke that acknowledges your viewing of my video, because obviously not all J-rock doesn't sound like Sonic music (I think most Sonic rock music is white-boi bands). But after listening to the song again, I found that the the intro (and the intro alone) sounds one HELL of a lot like Live and Learn. :D


I listened to it enough to feel like I had to go fast, but once it stopped sounding like Sonic music then I moved on. :)


SA2 is probably the Sonic game I've heard the most music from, since it's the one I (tried to) play the most. God, that Knuckles music ... *shudder*


I actually call just about any rap music that I hear, "Knuckles Music" now.

It’s Falco


So the new Pokeman is going to rock Amadeus?

#16525122 Zebesian Manga and Anime House

Oh, and i really do not give two shits about the spin-off series with Bort. I started reading the manga version, but stopped after a few chapters cuz i just got bored, and just straight-up haven't seen the anime version. To me, it just feels like a lame cash grab after the success of the original, like with how Yu-Gi-Oh kept going after the original series with GX and 5DS and whatever the fuck other ones there've been.



"Are you talking to me?"

"No, my son is also named Bort!"

The required GameXplain video on the trailer has some good info and conjecture, worth a watch just to get a closer look at some of the details.

Don't scare me like that! This is all I saw on my screen as the page was loading, I thought this was going to be a picture I really didn't want to see:




I thank Cho that it turned out to be your finger in a glove.

Chozo Crazy 8s Game Night

2-22-2018%20Icon.png February 22, 2018: "Let's try that "fast" stuff again." 2-22-2018%20Icon.png


As promised, the 200cc racing that was planned for last week zoomed into our homes and hearts this week. For most of the night, 5 brave souls raced at breakneck speeds. Morgil raced for 5 races, but was having internet problems and bailed out. We're sure he spent the rest of the night crying to himself that he couldn't have fun with us ... hey, wait a minute ...





Anyway, the rest of us had a grand old time, with two players breaking 300 points, as usually happens with the extra 5 or 6 races that we get at 200cc.




Even though I started out looking like I'd come in a solid 4th or 5th all night, I somehow managed to battle Ngamer back for first place, and a new overall high-score for a tournament at 358 points (sorry Sam, you had other things to do, and so were unseated from your highest-score-ever status).






Not many surprises here since nobody dropped out or showed up late. Just pure racing amazement!






With Crazed's soundboard offline for the night, the only real excitement that we got was when Plant asked me to type some stuff so he could break my combo. The event was immortalized by Septapus as well.




While we had some interesting events (all relating to Blue Shells), such as Plant driving under me when I got clipped by a Blue Shell, a Blue Shell apparently targeting two different people because of lag, and Yori racing so fast on Mute City that the Blue Shell had a hard time catching up to her, none of the replays really did the events justice, so not much to visually share on that. Please understand.


Ngamer shared a short clip video in Discord, though!





Next week will be Smash on Wii U, celebrating Pokemans Day. Get the full scoop from the CC8 Bot, and be sure to show up to hear Plant marvel at his new Wii U GamePad battery!


Thanks to everyone who could race this week. Give yourself a hearty,

Did you properly prepare her for the first hour ... hour and a half ... where you think you're playing, but you're actually still in the opening tutorial? ;)

J9 beat me? Whaaaa


Whoops, I must have miss-typed when I made the scoreboard. Now that info matches the graph. Don't worry, your manliness is restored (to J9's chagrin).

As promised, footage of Team CS winning them all from Thursday night. Sadly, all from my viewpoint - I really wish they'd put in some replay/camera controls with this version of the game.

Chozo Crazy 8s Game Night

2-8-2018%20Icon.png February 8, 2018: "You're a squid now, you're a kid now." 2-8-2018%20Icon.png


This week marks the first time we've played Splatoon 2 for the CC8 game night. While we hoped to have 6 people show up, Sam was off doing real-life things again (such a bad habit), and honorary-but-not-yet-member gamerman99 was unable to join at the last minute. That left myself, Ngamer, Morgil, and Crazed to squid it up as much as we could.




We managed to get on the same team 3 times out of 14 rounds, and all in all a good time was had. The one benefit of just having 4 of us is that after an hour of Turf War, we were able to go do some Salmon Run together, too!




Thanks to the Switch mobile app, there was lots of data about our matches that I could collate into interesting charts. Wins, losses, splats, deaths, assists, it's all there! Prepare yourself, Crazed!


First off, we have a chart showing general stats info for each of us, such as total points inked, average points per match, splats, assists, deaths, and special firings.



Both Crazed and Morgil were a bit short of the total match count.


To better represent the splats vs. deaths and wins vs. losses, I've gone to exciting pie charts, one for each player!








Many people got a bunch of clothes ranked up, and both Ngamer and Crazed broke through to level 10 last night, allowing them to play Ranked Battle. Perhaps the next time we play we'll take some time to do League Battle, assuming they also get to B- in one of the Ranked modes before then. In lieu of doing League, we took a break at the end of help Mr. Grizz get some salmon eggs. We played a handful of matches, and only didn't get through all 3 levels once, so that made Mr. Grizz happy. With more practice, better weapons, and a less challenging stage, who knows what we can accomplish as a communicating team!


While we had plenty of text chat going on, nobody made a comic - too busy playing in the ink. Luckily Ngamer had the wherewithal to furnish us with this token one afterwards.






Be sure to check out Crazed's highlight video that he shared in the cc8 text chat last night (he should really post it here, too) from last week's MK 8 tournament. I might put together a montage of our 3 Team CS rounds, but everything else was pretty run-of-the-mill I'd say, from a video standpoint.


Plans are underway for next week, let's see who can come and what we'll play!


If you ask Bowser, he'll say he's neither squid nor kid, but he'll always say,

I finally got around to making my newest Planterpiece™.

Everyone come in, pull up a chair, and watch the tale of a young woman as she sets out on her journey to find... EDVENCHUH!



I call shenanigans, that part where she's climbing up the cliff/ravine is impossible, since it's raining. BotW has taught me that any moisture makes climbing pointless.

#16524967 The YouTube/Video Thread (p.s. Other M is the shit)

Posted by torgo on 05 February 2018 - 09:38 AM

Just watched this short dev-interview video about SMO, and it has two important points.


One (most important for Teeter) is the (now apparently) canonical answer as to whether Toads wear hats, or if that's his head!


Also, what I was more interested in is the part towards the end where he's talking about how testers would report that they could find ways up to areas that might not be intended for players to get to. Instead of fixing things so that they could no longer get there, they put tons of coins up there as a reward for making it there. I just find it interesting that it wasn't in the original design to hide those things there, but was a reaction to testing "bug" that they handled in a fun way.

Chozo Crazy 8s Game Night

2-1-2018%20Icon.png February 1, 2018: "Start Your Engines!" 2-1-2018%20Icon.png

As promised, this week we played a game! And that game was Mario Kart 8 DX. We were missing some humanz, but had some others we hadn't seen for a bit. And we raced them all.


Crazed was on-point tonight, sweeping away my beautiful crown that Plant thinks looks so good on me. I blame Wendy, that's all I can do.


As the winner of this week's tournament, Crazed gets a special role in Discord. Be sure to check it out when you're on there next, and appropriately Oooo and Aaah at it.


Plant came in a few races late, which was fortunate for me because otherwise he would have gotten 2nd place. Morgil also raced a strong night, and was also hampered by late attendance.


Text chat was mostly full of image postings, which made for very poor Septapus food. I would recommend all members to go see it for themselves, but Morgil found his true calling towards the end, and ... well ... yeah.


One very short highlight video at Toad Harbor. Watch me get hit with Blue Love right before the finish line, but still have first place saved from Morgil because the gracious person in 3rd threw a red shell to take him out while I recovered. Good job!
Don't blink or you'll miss it.

Plans are underway for next week's game night. We also have the addition of HAL on the Discord server, with his intention of joining a MK8 DX night in the future. Trying and keep your HAL-ing to a minimum, unless it's J9's birthday.
Bowser thanks everyone, but really means it for the people who RSVP:
