Radiant Historia is almost impossible to find these days, too...
@Fluttershy Which is a great game in it's own right.
@Fluttershy So I noticed.
I was looking for that one just recently.
I might actually have to gasp emulate it!
I sent a message to the Atlus's twitter account asking if they were going to do another reprint, but they never responded.
@Powerlord I think that game is downloable for vita
The official Radiant Historia site still says "Reprint coming in February!" or something, but that was referring to 2012.
@BenBrocka Yes, it is. I'd forgotten it's on PSN.
@Powerlord @fbueckert I loved what I played of RH.. But it's around $90-180 for a new copy...
4:03 PM
I'm surprised it wasn't a launch title for Nintendo's 3DS eShop full titles.
@Powerlord I hate the limited release window stuff. Atlus and NISA stuff can be hard to find new copies of
@Fluttershy What? Really?
Limited release windows are why I now own a PSOne game worth $200+
@Fluttershy Which PSOne game?
@fbueckert When I last checked Amazon, yeah.
@Powerlord Suikoden II
4:04 PM
@Fluttershy That's going to drop soon, Sony announced it's coming out on PSN in a few weeks.
@Fluttershy Hmm. I wonder if the PSX version of Tactics Ogre is worth that much.
@Powerlord Whaaaaaaaat!? O_O YOUJUSTMADEMYDAYOMG
Probably not.
The funny thing is, Google's search results are so bad for "suikoden ii psn" that finding the announcement is basically impossible.
@Powerlord Yeah... <_< I just tried that muhself...
4:06 PM
I saw it on joystiq.com, so maybe if I limit my search results...
I <3 Garlic Bread
Nope, still just suikoden 1 results.
Suikoden 1 is on PSN, but isn't compatible with the Vita, which makes me sad.
Oh Idle No More, you silly gooses.
and by silly I mean get some common fucking sense.
Hey! My SciFi question got upvoted! Those guys really do take anything.
4:09 PM
Don't block off traffic.
@Wipqozn What are they doing now?
Doing blockades like this just pisses people off, and makes them care less about your movement.
@fbueckert Highway bloackades.
They seem to think the driver of the car is at fault for using the fucking road.
@Wipqozn They did that in Winnipeg.
@Wipqozn But... Why are they doing that?
I had the same thought; blockading the road just pisses people off. It gets your message out, but it reinforces the negativity of your message.
4:11 PM
Keeping the cars from reaching their destination isn't going to help lower emissions...
@Fluttershy Aboriginal problems. Frankly, I don't care. If they are doing stuff like this they don't have the right to have their problems heard.
@Wipqozn wat
@Fluttershy There's a movement in Canada called Idle No More.
Essentially, the natives are butthurt about government laws that make them not special anymore.
@fbueckert Equality is awful!
@fbueckert I was disappointed this isn't a hardline group against letting your car idle
4:14 PM
@Fluttershy Especially when your leaders have to disclose their salaries!
@BenBrocka That's what I thought it was at first... <_< Hence my lowering emissions comment.
@Fluttershy That, at least, would be a worthy cause.
@fbueckert add in the whole rigmarole with not knowing where a lot of the money they were given ended up and the whole thing is just a ridiculous mess.
This, though, is somewhat confusing as to what their exact goals are.
@AshleyNunn That whole hunger strike deal has political movements written all over it.
The fact that 80%+ of their expenses can't be accounted for sounds like corruption central.
4:18 PM
I'm not sure on all of the issues, but the main problem is (as usual) people being stuck in the past.
Canada has some very shameful events in it's history with regards to how it's treated Aboriginal people. The problem is a lot of the protesters seem to be under the impression nothing has changed.
Idle No More is an ongoing protest movement originating among the Aboriginal peoples in Canada comprising the First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples and their non-Aboriginal supporters in Canada, and to a lesser extent, internationally. It has consisted of a number of political actions worldwide, inspired in part by the hunger strike of Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence and further coordinated via social media. A reaction to alleged abuses of indigenous treaty rights by the current federal government, the movement takes particular issue with the recent omnibus bill Bill C-45. Backgroun...
If anyone's interested.
@fbueckert Are non-profits not required to be transparent for stuff like that?
@AshleyNunn So, any 999 progress?
@BenBrocka They're supposed to be.
Their plan of action according to their site:
4:21 PM
But the instant you release something like this, the natives start screaming racist.
Support and encourage grassroots to create their own forums to learn more about Indigenous rights and our responsibilities to our Nationhood via teach-ins, rallies and social media.

Build relationships and create understanding with allies across Canada.

Take steps to contribute to building relationships with international agencies such as the UN to raise awareness to the conditions Indigenous people have been
subjected to and assert our sovereignty in the international arena.

Acknowledge and honor the hard work of all grassroots people who have worked, and continue to work towards these
All I can say is: At least they aren't the Westboro Baptist Church.
> The Vision [...] revolves around Indigenous Ways of Knowing rooted in Indigenous Sovereignty to protect water, air, land and all creation for future generations.
@Fluttershy That's a completely different thing.
The Westboro BAptist Church is just a bunch of racists and bigots.
So, essentially, "Progress! Bad!"
4:22 PM
@Wipqozn It's a group of protestors. <_<
@fbueckert Clearly the way we used to do things is better than the ways we objectively know are better due to science
@Fluttershy Except they are so different it's not worth making a comparison.
The Westboro baptist Churhc is nothing more than a hate group.
@BenBrocka I'm pretty sure the entire point of the movement is for the government to throw money at them to get them to shut up.
They won't come out and say it, but that's it's underlying goal.
Idle No More is trying to look out for Aboriginal rights, but is going about it the wrong way, and also suffer from bias.
Q: What are scientists actually improving, in Startopia?

GnoupiIn Startopia, when you have a laboratory, you can research new technologies, new rooms, new equipement. However, when you don't give anything to work on to your scientists, they will randomly spend their time "improving an existing technology". What is the actual effect of this improvement?

4:25 PM
@Wipqozn Actually, there is a petition going around to get the WBC officially labelled as a hate group. I assumed they already were. I was incorrect.
@Lazers Maybe they wander around looking at things and devising new things? Wait, no, that's Evil Genius.
@Wipqozn I agree that they should have rights, but when you look at the massive amount of corruption related to aboriginals, the only way to fix it is absolute transparency.
Incidentally, in EG, you should build at least one of each trap type somewhere your minions can reach even if they're not connected to a triggering device.
Simply so your Science minions can research them.
When you look at reserves, they're squalid establishments of humanity. Houses last less than a decade, they're that abused.
4:28 PM
I wonder if Valve is going to convert TF2 to its new protobuf UserMessages like it converted CS:GO.
Why are we talking politics again?
19 mins ago, by Wipqozn
Oh Idle No More, you silly gooses.
I blame @Wipqozn!
Actually, I hope they do, the protobuf UserMessages use named fields, as opposed to the bitbuffer UserMessages where you have to know what types fall in what order and what they're supposed to represent.
Clearly the only solution is to talk about something else. Religion?
@Fluttershy Hats?
4:30 PM
@Powerlord If you can go two days without mentioning Team Fortress 2, or anything related to it, I will buy you a game on Steam.
@Fluttershy Do I have to be present for both days? :D
@fbueckert I'd prefer to blame Idle No More.
@Powerlord Yes. <_<
@Fluttershy What if someone asks him a question about TF2, and he replies?
I am falling asleep at school
4:32 PM
@Wipqozn Disqualified.
I'm not sure if it's just me, but most of the puzzles in Virtue's Last Reward seem easier than the puzzles in 999.
For example, the spoiler puzzle only requires you to spoiler spoiler.
Are we TVTropes now? (@kalina)
@Fluttershy Excellent.
@Fluttershy Religious politics
I only pinged her because I think she cries a little inside at the mention of that site. >_>
4:34 PM
@Powerlord Spy is a stupid class. Agree or disagree?
@BenBrocka I threw up in my mouth a little bit. >_>
@Wipqozn A very stupid class... well, named anyway. You should name the class based on what you're spying on, like FileSpy or something like that.
@Powerlord Clever girl.
@Fluttershy That's because that site is dangerously addictive
@BenBrocka Any chance you might have played Terranigma? Since you posted a screenshot and all
4:35 PM
But seriously, Spy is the best TF2 class. Spy is the only class I ever play anymore. With the odd pyro here and there if the server has too many spies.
@fbueckert Terranigma! \o/
@Wipqozn Heeeeavyyyyyyyyyyyyy
@Powerlord Great game. Haven't gotten around to finishing it, but I enjoy it immensely.
@GnomeSlice Seems like your kind of class.
@Wipqozn I think my most-played class is actually medic, which is weird.
4:36 PM
@Powerlord ಠ_ಠ
@GnomeSlice Medic is a lot of fun.
@Wipqozn <3 crossbow
@fbueckert no I just stole it from reddit
@fbueckert BTW, tip for the last boss: Remember which key Block is, since it's totally unnecessary for every other battle in the game.
@BenBrocka Old SNES RPG.
Never made it over the pond.
4:38 PM
@fbueckert ...which is because Enix North America closed before it was released, but Enix Europe didn't close until after it was released.
Having said that, if you use an emulator, there's a patch to fix Enix's stupid "Whoops, PAL, slow the game down 10%!" crud.
I'm not sure why Enix did that, but any game they released in PAL territories runs slower than its NTSC equivalent. I assume it was to deal with issues from moving from 60Hz interlaced to 50Hz non-interlaced.
@Wipqozn What's a good beginner class to play in Team Fortress 2?
(At least I think PAL was non-interlaced)
@Fluttershy Engineer, Soldier, or Pyro.
@Wipqozn Noted.
I really want to like TF2 more.
@Powerlord It is, PAL games almost slowed down since they just shlow the game down instead of reworking things for 50hz
4:43 PM
I also really want to be less bored right now.
@Fluttershy Start a band.
@Fluttershy Engie is fun and lets you learn some strategy but not too much. Soldier/pyro are probably easiest, just shoot at things/run up to things and hold down the trigger
Medic works too
I do find it kind of odd that Enix reopened its North American office in 2000ish and their very first game out the gate was Enix's longest game ever.
@Fluttershy Can I be in the band?
Which would be Dragon Warrior 7.
4:45 PM
@OrigamiRobot It's up to @Fluttershy. It's his band.
@OrigamiRobot I'd have to figure out how to work in a didgeridoo.
@Fluttershy hmm?
I would ask to join but I am not very musical. But I could bake the official cupcakes for your band.
@kalina ?
@Fluttershy TV Tropes
4:47 PM
14 mins ago, by Fluttershy
Are we TVTropes now? (@kalina)
Oh right. I'd already forgotten about that.
@Fluttershy He could fold paper very loudly to the beat
@Fluttershy I have faith in you.
Can someone link the next relevant thing I posted regarding the TVTropes thing?
and apparently my short term memory is bad!
14 mins ago, by Fluttershy
I only pinged her because I think she cries a little inside at the mention of that site. >_>
4:48 PM
There we go.
Mobile chat sucks so bad.
I don't know, I know nothing
@kalina It's established in site canon that my memory is awful.
that word, hides
@Fluttershy When is @FAE going to exist again?
no more canon arguments
4:51 PM
@OrigamiRobot Sunday if she feels un-jet lagged enough. Otherwise, Monday.
@BenBrocka Is it sad that I find the Heavy the easiest to use?
@kalina Arguing is all we do! It's practically canon!
@fbueckert That is the sort of detail that answerers would know if they have any actual experience with mods in Minecraft. It's unreasonable to expect the asker to have to provide details that are logical consequences of what they've already provided. Similar to how the asker should not be obliged to explain that they're using a mouse when they say "… then I clicked on the button…" — SevenSidedDie 5 mins ago
4:52 PM
@Fluttershy So close I can practically taste it.
@kalina <3
Why can't I kill users? Why!?
@fbueckert because we'd have no users left
@kalina Yes, we would.
There'd be only about a dozen, but there would be >0.
@OrigamiRobot Yeah...
4:53 PM
@fbueckert heavy isn't super hard, but his bad running speed limits exploring/running, and he's generally depended on strategically more often
@fbueckert I don't even know what the discussion is about but I'm going to side wiith SevenSidedDie just because you disagree with him
@kalina Disagreeing with the Marshal is a hanging offense in these here parts.
@fbueckert unfortunately a Marshall's power is limited by his reputation
@fbueckert I didn't vote for you.
@fbueckert You're the Marshall? Well, I didn't vote for you.
4:55 PM
@OrigamiRobot You're a robot. YOu don't get a vote.
and, did you know... I will get that badge within the next week or two
and then it will be completely devalued
I'm not a robot, I just pretend to be one sometimes.
@OrigamiRobot rofl
that post
every time
Y'know what? I'm just going to ignore him.
4:56 PM
I love it
Ooh, this protobuf change gets rid of the stupid count that needed to be up front in the bitbuffer version. Accotdin to cstrike15_usermessages.proto that is.
@OrigamiRobot Me not being 10K shows I have better things to do with my time.
@fbueckert There is nothing better than being able to see deleted posts.
@fbueckert like flag stuff?
@Powerlord What's that?
4:58 PM
@Fluttershy A change Valve is making to CS:GO in 7 days.
@Powerlord Oh. Only to CS:GO?
I don't play that.
Changing from a bunch of serialized data to Google's ProtoBufs for moving data between server and client.
I have 400 flags now.
@Fluttershy Well, hopefully they'll port it to other games, but it's a breaking change.
@kalina Like go dancing. And play video games.
And sometimes, argue with you guys.
4:59 PM
@fbueckert and flag everything
@OrigamiRobot Every time I see that meta post, I want to vote to undelete it.
@Fluttershy between us we have the power to make it happen, let's do it!
@Fluttershy But then we couldn't tease @fbueckert with it.
It's in the CSGO Beta now, but Valve has already stated "this change is going live next week Wednesday"
@Fluttershy Every time I see that meta post, I wish I could see it
4:59 PM
@kalina Not everything. Just crap.
@SaintWacko /violin
@fbueckert ALL THE THINGS
@SaintWacko It is pure gold.
