3:00 PM
I don't understand how we are talking about Doctor Who and not talking about Souffle Girl. Oswin Oswald is the only thing important now.
 
Why not just travel 5 years into the future of when rory was there?
Or travel somewhere else, and then grab a train to new york?
 
@OrigamiRobot Oswin Oswald is another massive plot hole waiting to happen.
 
@OrigamiRobot That is true
 
It's just lazy writing so that moffat could try to give some grand finale to amy and rory.
 
@Fluttershy Think happy thoughts, think happy thoughts
 
3:01 PM
If you're watching Dr who for sensible plot then you're doing it wrong.
 
We should be talking about how the next Dr. Horrible is supposed to enter production this Spring.
 
@RonanForman you're* (sorry)
 
@RonanForman If you're watching Doctor Who post-Davies, you mean.
 
@Fluttershy Now you're just trying to make me hate you.
 
@kalina I noticed the second one.
 
3:01 PM
hate is such a strong word
 
@OrigamiRobot Don't get me wrong. I like Soufflé Girl. She is a very pretty lady. But she will be a plot hole.
 
Let's hope she's not Rory 2.0
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I actually liked Rory. It was Amy I hated.
 
@Fluttershy You just don't like timey-whimey stuff.
 
Moffat just seems to have lost any sense of pacing. Look at the series 6 final, where river and the doctor got married. That felt 100% forced and rushed. The level of writing was on the same level of a poorly written slash fan fic.
 
3:03 PM
 
@Fluttershy It's a little hard to like a character when the show's writer keeps killing him. Again. And again. And again.
 
I still find it weird that the Back to the Future game for PC from two years ago actually continues the plot from the movies.
 
Each time bringing him back to life with a even less plausible explaination
 
@Fluttershy I didn't mind Amy in series 5, but in series 6+7... ugh. It was the same thing every episode. Doctor wants to do something bad... amy is like "DOCTOR NO!" "man amy, you're the best! thanks!"
 
@Powerlord how? the delorean was destroyed
 
3:04 PM
@Wipqozn I think Moffat is too into fan service. He overplayed the angels and he overplayed River.
 
@kalina I don't know the answer to that one
 
@kalina I know the delorean makes an appearance, but I don't remember how they answer that.
 
@Wipqozn Yeah... Amy ha been the weakest companion.
 
@SaintWacko it's not an answerable question, the information doesn't appear in the show
 
@Wipqozn I haven't seen those seasons yet
 
3:05 PM
@Fluttershy No, Rose was the lamest.
 
@kalina These are kinda wonderful
 
@SaintWacko SPOILERS
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone NOOOOOOO!
 
@SaintWacko "wonderful" isn't the word I would use, some of them are quite good though
 
@OrigamiRobot Yes. He really, really did. River was amazing in Silence in the Library and The Time of Angels. She was good in The Big Bang. Series 6 onward? She's been terrible. Moffat ust keeps trying to shove her, and the doctor/river thing down our throats.
@OrigamiRobot I never really liked Rose, either.
 
3:05 PM
@kalina Well, amusing, then :P
 
Actually if you don't mind... it's just the Doctor...
 
@kalina :D
 
I don't mind her as much now as I used to, but I still don't like her that much.
 
All I know is that the Back to the Future writer Bob Gale was involved in writing the plot for the game.
 
@Wipqozn I only disliked River in the wedding one.
@Wipqozn I like that aspect.
 
3:07 PM
@Wipqozn I didn't like Rose either
 
@OrigamiRobot I couldn't stand it. If it was once or twice it would be fine, but it was all the time.
@OrigamiRobot I also just felt like the writing itself was poor when amy was trying to make the doctor be good.
The Fires of Pompeii was a good example of that being done right. Where The Doctor wasn't going to save anyone, since it the destruction of pompeii was supposed to happen, and Donna pleaded with him to save someoen, and he did.
The writing was really well done.
 
@Wipqozn Oh you just mean the concept was poorly executed.
I'm not going to disagree there.
 
I just watched Silence in the Library the other night
I had forgotten how amazing that episode is
 
@OrigamiRobot Yeah, sorry if that wasn't clear.
 
@OrigamiRobot I liked Rose because of Jack Harkness. <_<
 
3:13 PM
@Wipqozn Although, Rose absorbing the Time Vortex is one of my favorite moments.
 
@Fluttershy So you liked Jack?
 
@Fluttershy Rose + Time Vortex was the only time I really liked Rose.
@Wipqozn Everyone likes Captain Jack.
2
 
@Fluttershy The two show's timelines diverged, though
 
@OrigamiRobot I was about to say the same thing
 
@OrigamiRobot Yes. My point was he didn't like Rose, he liked Jack.
 
3:15 PM
@Wipqozn He likes that Rose brought him back to life.
 
@OrigamiRobot Do you watch Torchwood?
 
@RonanForman If you're writing a TV show and can't manage a sensible plot, you're doing it wrong.
 
@SaintWacko I have only seen a couple episodes.
 
@OrigamiRobot I kinda like it better than Doctor Who
 
Guys, if I want to ask a question about a book, what site do I ask it on?
 
3:16 PM
@Fluttershy Scifi?
What's the question?
 
@SaintWacko Is it because of Jack Harkness? Because that's why I like Torchwood.
@SaintWacko A plot question about Cloud Atlas.
 
@Fluttershy That's part of it. Jack is just awesome. It's also a really well written show
 
@Fluttershy Eh, I've finished the book
 
@Fluttershy Yeah, scifi, then
 
@OrigamiRobot Holy crap your items.
 
3:17 PM
@Fluttershy Literature.SE. Oh... wait...
 
I played through all of act 3 and 4 and got like 500k gold.
 
Does anybody here watch Merlin?
 
So I guess it doesn't take that long to save up and buy some gear.
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I didn't even know you were reading it. What'd you think?
 
I've finished Miracle Day. It's good, but the ending is blarg
 
3:18 PM
@GnomeSlice It sounds good, but I haven't watched it
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I haven't finished those yet
 
@SaintWacko I saw the series finale yesterday. Holy shit.
 
@GnomeSlice Hey! Help explain why @BenBrocka and @fbueckert need to play Enslaved! <_<
 
@Fluttershy I finished it about a year ago, it's pretty amazing
 
When I last watched Torchwood, only the first couple episodes were on Netflix
 
@GnomeSlice The BBC series?
 
3:18 PM
@BenBrocka @fbueckert you need to play enslaved because it has amazing voice acting and graphics and one of the best original storylines in any game, ever.
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Yes.
 
How about Sherlock? You all watch that, right?
 
That reminds me, I should ask my aunt if I can borrow Enslaved when she's back from Florida.
 
@GnomeSlice "Original" storyline is a bit extreme. It's an adaptation of a Chinese story... But yeah.
 
@GnomeSlice @Fluttershy Game collection = large. Gaming time = limited.
 
@Fluttershy Oh, is it? I'd no idea.
 
3:19 PM
I think I watched a few episodes of the first season
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone The later seasons are much better.
The series just ended with season 5, and It was... pretty crazy.
 
@SaintWacko I should watch it, but I'm still traumatized by the movie
 
@Powerlord It is an excellent game! I hope you are able to borrow it!
 
(I should point out that I'm the one who got it for her after hearing it was good.)
 
Oh. <_<
 
3:21 PM
@StrixVaria The legendaries were cheap.
 
If you want me to bump this anywhere NOT on the bottom of the gaming queue, you're gonna have to do better than, "OMG! Game is awesome! Play!"
 
@OrigamiRobot Inna's probably wasn't, though.
I have no idea what to upgrade and what's already good.
 
@StrixVaria Surprisingly, it was. it was only 1-2m
 
@StrixVaria Grats on finishing Inferno!
 
3:22 PM
I think my gloves and my amulet are probably the best items I have.
@fbueckert Thanks!
 
@StrixVaria I think my hat is the best item I have.
 
@Powerlord Do you have a towering pillar of hats?
 
@StrixVaria Are you using a slow weapon on purpose?
 
@StrixVaria Yes. :D
 
@StrixVaria Get some bracers with crit.
 
3:23 PM
@OrigamiRobot Ugh don't talk about my weapon.
4
@Powerlord Wow. That is pretty awesome.
 
@StrixVaria I was legitimately asking.
 
@OrigamiRobot I kind of like the slow weapon better because it makes my very, very expensive spells do more damage for the same mana cost.
But that weapon is garbage anyway.
 
@GnomeSlice I don't have time to play games, but now I'm supposed to watch a video about it?
 
Videos are the worst
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone What movie?
 
3:25 PM
I hate googling for a simple explanation of how to do something in a game, or a review of a game, that would take all of 30 seconds to read, and someone wants me to watch a 5 minute video instead
with 30 seconds of ads before it
and then a 1 minute intro
I HATE EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING
7
 
@RonanForman Fiiix iiiit
 
@StrixVaria wink wink nudge nudge
 
| language = English | budget = $90 million | gross = $524,028,679 }} Sherlock Holmes is a 2009 British-American action mystery film based on the character of the same name created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The film was directed by Guy Ritchie and produced by Joel Silver, Lionel Wigram, Susan Downey and Dan Lin. The screenplay by Michael Robert Johnson, Anthony Peckham and Simon Kinberg was developed from a story by Lionel Wigram and Michael Robert Johnson. Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law portray Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson respectively. In the film, Holme...
 
@BenBrocka Yeah the stars didn't get that across.
 
@Sterno The other night I was trying to figure out how to remove the tensioner pulley on my car, so I searched on youtube. Found a 13 minute video, so I started skipping through it. The guy talked about it the whole time and never actually did it >.<
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Oh, right. That. Trust me, the BBC Sherlock is vastly superior to, well, everything
It's amazing
 
3:27 PM
@OrigamiRobot Actually, looking at my items right now, most of them are completely crappy.
 
They only release three episodes a year
Because they spend time making them all perfect
 
@Sterno It's worse when it's a news story. I get that gaming stuff is done by amatures who might not have time/drive/knowledge to set up text alternatives, but video only news stories? WTF
 
@BenBrocka This. So much this. It pisses me off to no end when I see an interesting headline, only to find that it's just a video where they expect me to slow down to speaking speed to get the information
 
@fredley Done!
 
I just bail ASAP when I notice it's video only. Twice as fast when it's auto-play
 
3:29 PM
The movie isn't too bad, but it would've been much better if it didn't carry the name Sherlock Holmes
 
bored
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I haven't seen the movie
 
I liked Sherlock, but I'm finding I like Elementary better.
 
But Sherlock is so good I can say without a doubt that it is superior
 
Enslaved is the best movie you will ever play.
 
3:30 PM
Maybe simply due to quantity.
 
Though what would be cool are the Youtube automatic transcripts. That's legitimately awesome stuff they could have. And pretty much everything with it is perfect...except for recognizing words. So you get an awesome, interactive transcript that's totally incorrect
 
@Sterno That could be, it is hard to only get three episodes each year
And especially with the way the last one ended
 
The problem is, I've read every one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes short stories, and the adaptation just falls flat because the characters don't act like their namesakes
 
@BenBrocka Once in high school, I was on a class trip, and we went to some museum where they showed a movie, and the subtitles were so unbelievably off that they were just spouting gibberish
 
I mean, who didn't think when watching Hackers, "Hey, that guy would make a great Sherlock Holmes"?
 
3:32 PM
That was hilarious
 
@SaintWacko youtube automatic transcriptions are their own kind of funny sometimes
they'll catch one sentance perfectly and the next will be absurd
 
@Sterno Hackers isn't familiar, but I think he makes a good Sherlock Holmes
And Moriarty is very well played
 
@SaintWacko Hackers is an awful movie that you should known by name even if you've never seen it!
 
@SaintWacko MLP transcriptions. Not a single line is accurate. /mlp/ had fun capturing the worst transcribed lines.
 
3:33 PM
But I'm also talking about Johnny Lee Miller from Elementary, not whathisname from Sherlock
 
Ugh... I just asked a question in SciFi...
3
 
@fbueckert Those people will never be happy.
 
@Sterno Hackers is awful. That's why I love it. =P
 
@OrigamiRobot They want the crafting cost removed entirely, so it just takes mats.
 
@fbueckert ...
 
3:35 PM
You think I'm headed in the wrong direction? These people want, "Press button, get best gear."
 
@fbueckert Gamers are lazy entitled little shits people.
 
@Wipqozn Any game that offers any way to compare yourself against others will engender envy.
 
@fbueckert No, I thought all the new crafts had some guaranteed stats, but that's just the amulet.
 
@OrigamiRobot The only guaranteed stats is main stat.
 
3:36 PM
@fbueckert And only on the amulet.
 
@OrigamiRobot Nope.
 
-1
A: How can I activate a game bought from the Mac App Store on Steam?

BombGiYou can compare the prices for cd keys Pc Games in a comparison site call http://gocdkeys.com Have more games and more stores to compare. Very useful

 
The other BoA crafts have guaranteed main stat.
 
Key reseller spam! Hadn't had one of these in a while
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Steven magnet
 
3:37 PM
@fbueckert That's not how the Patch Notes read
 
@BenBrocka I think that one might have been Photoshopped
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Meh, I've never paid attention to MLP or /mlp/
 
It's impossible to tell which of them are. But I have watched with caption once, and I can confirm the captioning is rubbish
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Really? Steven has been a meme since...forever. PRetty sure it was originally on the captions
 
@OrigamiRobot From the preview:
> These new items will have six affixes and feature a primary stat (Str, Dex, Int, Vit) that extends higher than what is currently available in the respective slots
 
3:39 PM
@fbueckert It's not even that. Remember the reaction of certain fans after Diablo 3 was released? They'd play the game for 100 hours, then say it's complete shit and that blizzard is fucking stupid. Should go die. et cetera.
 
And the PTR patch notes:
 
@fbueckert Nevermind, I was misremembering. It's in the patch notes.
 
> Similar to the Hellfire Ring, it will have four variants, each guaranteeing a fixed core stat which will have the highest range available in the game
 
@BenBrocka These are the automatic YouTube captions. I don't think those words (or words like that) were ever spoken in the show
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I know
 
3:39 PM
@Wipqozn Part of that is the nostalgia from D2.
 
Someone with SciFi rep, go fix my question tag!
 
@fbueckert Yea, I only remembered this line for the amulet.
 
People take screencaps when they're funny. Most of the time they're just inaccurate/absurd though
 
@fbueckert Diablo 3 has quite a few problems, but the way some people react you'd think Blizzard killed their mother and then sold them the worst game ever made.
 
Anyone who plays the game for 100 hours and calls it complete shit is just butthurt.
 
3:40 PM
I played it for a couple weeks, and haven't touched it sense. It's alright, but there are better games to spend time on
 
@Fluttershy STOP MAKING ME CONTRIBUTE TO THAT SITE
 
Disappointing :(
 
@OrigamiRobot Thank you.
 
@OrigamiRobot I plan on hammering through all my cash for crafting gear.
So we'll see how well it works.
 
I hope you get nothing.
 
3:42 PM
@BenBrocka Given where I am in BL2, how close would you say I am to the end of the game?
 
@Fluttershy Halfway or a little further. YOu'll be early 30s by the end in most cases
 
@BenBrocka Noted. I'm trying to figure out my list of games to complete by how long it's going to take to actually beat said games. >_>
 
@OrigamiRobot I am going to gloat so much if I get something awesome.
Chances of that happening is going to be incredibly rare, though.
 
@Wipqozn Victims of the hype machine, perhaps
 
@Fluttershy Tiny and Big
 
3:44 PM
I'm cold at work, this doesn't bode well for tonight
 
@fbueckert Now, the gem cost might be a bit high...
 
@GnomeSlice Moon
 
@OrigamiRobot 20 million for the next tier of gem? Ya think!? :P
 
@kalina This sounds dirty...
 
@Fluttershy Still looking
 
3:45 PM
@OrigamiRobot why does this sound dirty?
 
@GnomeSlice And my computer still can't run Tiny and Big well.
 
@kalina How does it not sound dirty
@Fluttershy :::((((((((((((
 
@GnomeSlice ...
 
Haven't we gotten other gems from this user?
 
@Fluttershy BL2 will probably take longer than many but it's got a lot of replay value. If you just want to sit down and burn through shorter games you might want to try other things first (harvest moon will also take ages btw. And there's no "beating" it)
 
3:46 PM
Oh, no, he just joined today.
Never mind.
 
In fact I'm not sure you can "beat" any harvest moon aside from the SNES one. The 2.5 years thing is BS sadness
 
you guys are all perverts
 
@BenBrocka I have a list typed out and stuff of all of my games that I want to beat by the end of the year. Harvest Moon isn't on it. =P
 
@kalina Maybe we just have one-track minds.
 
@GnomeSlice there isn't much maybe about it
@Fluttershy I see you on scifi!
 
3:47 PM
@Fluttershy To The Moon can be finished in, I don't know, 4 hours max? I'm a third of the way through Vessel, and Steam tells me I've put in 5 hours, but I think it might be overestimating
 
@kalina Don't remind me!
 
Morning all
 
@kalina I am a robot.
 
@OrigamiRobot still a pervert
@ZeroStack afternoon
 
3:49 PM
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I'll probably tackle To The Moon on Saturday/Sunday so I'm not sitting at home panicking.
 
@kalina Why?
 
yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee — GnomeSlice 2 mins ago
@GnomeSlice You're not helping
 
@OrigamiRobot because I said I was cold and that since my house is also cold that I'm going to be very cold tonight
 
@Fluttershy Panicking? 'bout what?
 
@OrigamiRobot and some how that was dirty to you
 
3:50 PM
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Trans-Atlantic flights.
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone At all. @Gnome, seriously. Think a little.
 
@kalina I don't know why I think the stupid things I think. It's the way I was built.
 
@BenBrocka Most of the Harvest Moon games will have some objective, although you can continue playing after.
 
@Fluttershy To The Moon might make you cry. Fair warning.
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone That's fine. It'll distract me.
 
3:52 PM
@Wipqozn My objective for the latest one: Get permanent five-star crops.
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I played the Christmas level in Elite Beat Agents and didn't cry. If that doesn't so it, nothing will.
 
@Wipqozn Yeah, they do have objectives to varying degrees. I stopped playing the Wii Rune Factory a while after being the "story", before even doing the whole dating thing...oddly enough it felt more grindy than the actual grinding in that game
 
@OrigamiRobot I didn't know robots came with tear glands
 
woo, I have > 400 flags
 
I wonder if @AshleyNunn got any farther in 999.
 
3:53 PM
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I was designed to simulate humans.
 
@OrigamiRobot Not well enough, obviously
 
@fbueckert I should get back to that one some day. I got derailed by... some other game. I can't remember. I have focus issues with games.
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I blame @Wipqozn
 
@Wipqozn Tip: Try to finish the second town restoration before Winter.
Because you can't during Winter.
 
@OrigamiRobot Always a good choice
 
3:56 PM
@Powerlord I dunno if @AshleyNunn did, but I did! And I learned a valuable lesson. >_>
 
@Fluttershy How many of the endings have you gotten so far? :P
 
@Powerlord I'm on the third puzzle. <_<
But I learned you can save during the wall-o-text moments!
 
@Fluttershy Yes, and this is a valuable skill in the sequel since the sequel has a nasty tendency to crash in puzzle rooms.
 
@Powerlord Noted! If I manage to find a copy, that is.
 
Although I heard that only happens in the 3DS version of the sequel (it also has a Vita version)
@Fluttershy Virtue's Last Reward was only released 3 months ago, you'd better be able to find a copy of it still. :D
Then again, 999 had a reprint right before that, but it was apparently hard to find.
 
3:59 PM
@Powerlord Some games have very limited releases. It's hard as hell to find a copy of Rhythm Thief now.
