@LessPop_MoreFizz For some reason I was expecting actual goats.
 
@Wipqozn Have you never heard of The Mountain Goats?
We should work on this.
 
@Wipqozn i was too, now i am SORELY DISAPPOINTED
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz I have not.
 
PHILISTINES ALL OF YOU.
John Darnielle is probably the best American Songwriter working today.
 
12:02 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz what kind of goat is that?
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Just about to head off for the night, but if you link to a suggested album / song I should listen to, I'll check it out when I get to work in the morning
 
For now, though,, I'm off! Toodles alll
 
So, ^ this is a very famous Mountain Goats song about a couple in the middle of a torturous relationship/divorce and it is probably one of the most spiteful songs ever written and it is beautiful and lovely.
 
meh, don’t they put out like 5 albums a year? I’ll just wait for the “A decade of…” retrospective best-of compilation.

Q: LAN with no connection to main internet

unknownThis is a fairly simple question. Can I host/join a LAN game for minecraft if I have no connection to the main Internet? What I have is a router that can't be connected to the modem (I just don't have access to it. It isn't broken. ) and I want to be able to host a LAN game. Will it work?

 
@Brant First album in three years!
(Though honestly, a TMG box set is a thing that is long overdue.)
Also, Two Decades!
There were like... 12 releases between 1992 and 1994.
Which is close to 5 albums a year. But that does count a few EPs and split 7"'s as well as his early cassette only releases that got sold out of the back of a van or whatever.
^ and this is a very early Mountain Goats song from said 4 track days when it was just John and no real band and it is an uplifting and heartwarming song about DOING YOUR OWN GODDAMN THING EVEN WHEN GROWN UPS TELL YOU NOT TO and when he plays it live it ends in singalongs of HAIL SATAN and is amazing.
@Sterno Have you found Hiravias yet?
Because he's a perverted monster and he's amazing.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz I'm still in the starter town. My playtime is limited and I've also restarted three times
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz where is this?
 
(Fast Mode makes restarts nice though)
 
@MattGiltaji He's in the area east of where the ranger joins
 
12:12 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz is that the beach area?
dammit i need a map
 
Also, I am contemplating restarting again, with another cipher, because what is wrong with me I am damaged.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz have you beaten the whole game yet?
 
@MattGiltaji No I haven't done a single main quest thing since Maerwald
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz lol
you are an altaholic
 
I just found out that the bestiary has flavor text
(reading)
 
12:15 AM
@Sterno yeah the bestiary is pretty damn cool
 
@MattGiltaji Aren't we all?
 
I really should be playing PoE, shouldn’t I?
 
@Yuuki the first step is admitting, which i am not going to do
@Brant yes
all the cool kids are doing it
you want to be cool, don't you?
 
I just don’t know if I have it in me after mainlining bgate2 for 11 straight days back in ‘01
 
@Brant you'll be hooked after character creation
it is that damn good
 
12:17 AM
that’s exactly the problem
 
you have sick days, right?
 
You have to understand, it took me a decade before I could even look at a BioWare RPG again
and I still haven’t been able to play one to completion
 
Today in unfortunate text cut-offs:
 
> I run out of money halfway through so I strip everyone, including myself, of all available gear and sell it, using the cash to buy more rangers/bears.
 
12:19 AM
Ugh, fine, you miserable enablers
Maybe I’ll just play a bit of Cities: Skylines first.
 
> The first thing I handle as bears is the tavern. The villagers, drinkers, and innkeepers all make the same fatal mistake: not finding it at all suspicious or alarming to be approached and encircled by a ring of bears. I attack, bear-style. It's a massacre.
 
I’m starting to suspect this feature is just a vehicle for bear puns and I’m okay with this
 
@Brant it is. There's bear puns wherever they could be fit (or couldn't, who cares, it's bear puns)
 
that is too true about the guards at the gates of raedric's hold
dudes have good loots but also leave you rekt
 
@MattGiltaji No, rerollaholic
I have basically only played ciphers past level 3.
and I have done it 3 times
 
12:23 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz that is because ciphers own
what weapons are you using to build focus?
 
@MattGiltaji Blunderbuss as soon as I can get one.
Before that, Pistols and Crossbows mostly.
Stilettos if I get cornered.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz that seems really slow
 
@MattGiltaji Focus is proportional to damage

Q: Methods to unlocking Mewtwo in Melee

DavWhodumsI understand how Mewtwo is unlocked. but I am curious if anyone had a method to reach 20 hours of vs. play time quickly. or should i just mindlessly kill a lvl 1 handicap Pichu 500 more times?

 
You get off one good shot as an opener and have a full focus, and then you can usually just chaincast until everything dies.
 
12:26 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz fffffffff why did i not know this?
 
@MattGiltaji That said, Draining Whip changes things up a little bit, because you get +2 per hit
 
i'm taking the fine arbalest off of what's his name now
 
Which, in turn is why Blunderbuss is so good.
 
next question, where is a blunderbus? (i have draining whip)
 
@MattGiltaji I wouldn't go Arbalest/Arquebus personally; I usually end up getting one more shot off.
@MattGiltaji you can get a nice unique one from a side quest in dyrford village
it's the one with the farmer and the ogre
No blunderbii in chapter one.
 
12:28 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz kk, i know i'm at stronghold now, i ran back there to take screenies and steal your FGITW reps
and also boost the companion chanter's stats with that wicked cool save/reload bug
 
@MattGiltaji CHEEEEEETER.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz you should have seen me in skyrim
100s in all skills, casting every spell for no mana cost
it was glorious
 
12:52 AM
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz well said, eder
 
A goon made a mod that replaces the audio of Kana chanting with the Tim Allen grunt.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz hehehe
i really only know i'm in battle when kana starts chanting
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz I messed up and now I have 2 rogues and no tank. :(
 
@Fluttershy wat
how
 
12:58 AM
@Fluttershy tanky rogues at least?
 
@Fluttershy did you kill eder somehow
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz I'm at the very beginning still. Just got out of the cave. If that rings any spoiler-free bells.
 
@Fluttershy wait, still in the tutorial?
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz If that's the tutorial, then yes.
 
So you have Heodan but not Calisca?
Literally walk forward and this problem will 'solve' itself.
 
12:59 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yeah.
 
Also, none of that stuff is hard enough to need all three of them anyway, so whatever.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz except disarming the traps
 
You'll get a very good tank and a wizard and a priest basically immediately if you go where the game tells you to.
@MattGiltaji You don't need to disarm them because you can just go the long way around and fight like... 4 mobs, and you can also disarm them just by carrying a torch, of which there are many sitting in loot around the cave.
 
@MattGiltaji I'm a rogue, so I can disarm my own traps.
@LessPop_MoreFizz This makes me feel better. I was afraid I was gonna have to reroll. x_x
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz how can i sow fud when you are here explaining everything?
 
1:04 AM
Man, I hate you guys. I'm strongly considering buying Pillars this weekend.

Q: How do I beat the Joker in Arkham city?

GehrigI'm stuck at the steel mill in joker's funland trying to beat the joker, inmates and the titans. I cant figure out how to beat the titans. I'm playing the Xbox 360.

 
@LessPop_MoreFizz @Sterno What difficult would you suggest starting on, given that I haven't played any of the Infinity Engine games?
 
@Wipqozn Easy or Normal. The only difference is number of enemies, and you can change midgame, so it's NBD if you choose wrong.
(XP comes not from kills but from exploration/quest completion.)
(Well, a little bit from kills, but only until you complete the bestiary on each monster type, which only takes a few kills.)
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Oh right! That's that thing I remember reading back in the day that made me know I would, at some point, buy this game.
Having XP tied to quests and exploration is just so much better then getting XP for...everything.
or worse yet, only for certain things, like killing
It just breaks immersion, and doesn't let you play the way you want, I find.
Tying it to quest completion is just brilliant... wish more games would do it.
Well when I get it (which might be soon...) I'll start on Normal, and can bump it up once I get a feel for the game or I find it too easy.
I love being able to switch difficulty mid-game. Leaves out the stress of "What will be the right idifficultry for me?!"
Anyways, I need to go to bed... later all
 
1:20 AM
I finally finally finally finshed the printers chapter in my book

Q: How do I split a stack of consumable items?

LessPop_MoreFizzI've got a stack of potions. Five of them in fact. It sure would be nice if I could put one of them into each of my party members quick slots for use in this really hard boss fight I have coming up. The usual suspects for stack splitting - shift click, control click, alt click, click, then shift ...

 
@Lazers UI failure.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Some people are saying "double click" on the Steam forums.
I don't want to post an answer since I have no way to verify it myself.

Q: Delaying a Council Mission

MattRIn XCOM: Enemy Within / Unknown if you choose to delay the Council mission to investigate the fishing village (full of chryssalids) as it's just too difficult for your current troops, does it ever come around again? The last couple of games I've started I've gotten it extremely early so I don...

Q: In Pillars of Eternity, where would i get Telda's Ring or Ring of the Selonan

KeAni found this on wiki Ring of the Selonan & Telda's Ring do you know where to find them??

 
That sounds like a horrendous way to do it, though.
 
@StrixVaria Didn't work for me; more to the point, I am terrified of double clicking on anything in this UI.
 
1:33 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yeah I heard about a bug where double-click to equip permanently reset a whole bunch of stats, ruining your save forever.
 
Those who bought Pillars of Eternity - a) from where, & for how much? b) what's the shortform, if I type PoE I'll think of Path of Exile >_>
 
@Alok a)I backed the game so... some amount? I don't remember really. b) FY:SMD:JSPDRPG
 
I'm finding it for around $22 on G2play, anyone used online key sites before?
 
@Alok I've never had a good experience buying from anywhere other than Humble or Steam.
I've had my bank call me a few times about potentially fraudelent charges and freeze my card.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz I only find out these things after they've long gone past the backing amount, or there is no chance they ever will :( Lmao @ answer b), what's that supposed to mean?
@StrixVaria Hmm and last I checked, citi virtual no. wasn't working well and Discover has already discontinued theirs :/

@fredley its Fuck You, Suck My Dick: Josh Sawyers Personal Dream RPG
 
G2 purchase should end up as a Steam key (or gift), assuming it goes thru ok
@LessPop_MoreFizz THAT should've been the actual name :D
Btw, that is for 'Hero edition' which I assume is good enough, didn't see anything I particularly wanted from the others
 
@Alok Possibly paywalled? I can never remember with SA. (even if it's not you'll have to scroll down past a very obnoxious gigantic HEY YOU AREN'T A MEMBER screen that fills the whole page to see content.)
@Alok I am a backer and got an edition that includes lots of Stuff
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz paywalled
 
@AshleyNunn I guess Games isn't on the pubbie rotation right now.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz shrugs
 
1:40 AM
They randomly make specific subforums publicly viewable with no rhyme or reason.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Nope, its paywalled alright
 
That video on that page is annoying as hell
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz I realize that.
It further lowers my desire to give them money.
 
@AshleyNunn Fair enough! I don't have to see it and don't even know what the video is because I've had my account for over a decade. Ignorance is bliss.
 
1:45 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz Congrats, I suppose?

Q: What does "vat capacity upgrade" do?

SeanI finished a mission that increased vat capacity but I have no idea what it did. What does it mean and what benefits does it bestow?

 
user image

W-what?
I mean I guess it makes sense. But what?
 
@Yuuki I follow that logic, but barely
 
@AshleyNunn I assume the logout got triggered somehow while he was still logged in on his console. So when he tried to logout, the server spat an error, telling him that he was already logged out. What should happen now is that he would go the main menu (not logged in).
But I do wonder what would happen if he got sent to the logged-in version of the main menu.
(Yes, I'm ignoring the second sentence in the dialog)
 
2:42 AM
I played like 6 hours of bloodborne today and didn't make any progress
game is way, way too difficult
I probably won't ever finish it
 
hi
 
@TheX Welcome.
 
I am the protector of @TheX.
 
2:50 AM
Oh I have a protector... how nice...
 
@PrivatePansy whaaaat that's AWESOME
 
We have arrived. @TheX Stay close. Trust no one.
 
I don't even trust myself...
I stopped doing that after I got married...
 
has no idea what is going on, drinks more yujacha
 
And watch your butt. There are those in this room who would touch it.
 
2:51 AM
I might like that ;=)
 
We come in peace.
 
@AshleyNunn We're introducing @TheX to The Bridge. Sorta.
 
Uh...hi...
 
@AshleyNunn It's sorta an inside-AU-chat joke from the past few minutes.
 
@RPiAwesomeness Okay then. I'll be over here with my tea mug.
 
2:52 AM
@AshleyNunn Yay tea!
 
@PrivatePansy Yay! .... are we going to get New strips someday?
 
So...Linux FTW!
 
@TheX Let me give you the basic run-down. @AshleyNunn is the pretty lady who you must always compliment and be nice to because logic and she likes Bagpipe rock. @Wipqozn is the one who nobody likes because he lacks the sense to keep his turtle avatar. If you see a message stating he has been removed from room mod, immediately star it.
 
I can't be nice to other ladies....my wife will kill me...
 
@TrentHawkins We are, sort of
 
2:54 AM
@TrentHawkins Do we not already online? or am I just seeing old things?
 
@TheX There's a difference between being nice and flirting
 
@WorldEngineer is @AshleyNunn's boyfriend. He uses BSD. @GnomeSlice Is your source for music and adult entertainment stuff & things. Be careful with him. He tends to change his name to other types of slices. @spugsley Is the other pretty lady around here. Also be nice to her, but watch your butt.
 
@SaintWacko according to who?
 
@RPiAwesomeness He does? News to me.
 
2:55 AM
@RPiAwesomeness And your babies
 
@AshleyNunn They've been colourings of old black&white strips for months.
 
@RedRiderX Eek! She steals babies now?
 
@TrentHawkins oh, the colours distracted me, and I haven't been reading for long
 
@RPiAwesomeness No just punches them
 
@RPiAwesomeness nope.
 
2:56 AM
@RPiAwesomeness Also, y'know, indie games.
 
@RPiAwesomeness No. She punches them.
 
@RedRiderX that
 
And other games.
 
@RPiAwesomeness MEEEEEEEEEEEEE
 
@spugsley Oh my
@spugsley Indeed.
 
2:56 AM
Can you run backwards in minecraft?
 
@TheX Nope.
 
crap that sucks
 
@SaintWacko Yes. @TheX Do not flirt with @AshleyNunn. That is my job. Or at least was. I may have lost ground on this one with a severe lack of pickup lines.
 
@RPiAwesomeness I....um....
uh
 
2:57 AM
@AshleyNunn I think the colors are nice, by yeah, the last few weeks have been reruns in preparation for this
 
nope, I got nothing
@PrivatePansy ah, shiny :D
 
@RPiAwesomeness glares

Q: Does anyone know if you can run backwards in Minecraft?

TheXI would really like to know if you can run backwards in Minecraft? Thanks!

 
And now it's finally starting again, with that strip up there as the first ever syndicated strip
 
Oh yeah. That's right. It's my job to flirt with @AshleyNunn and make @WorldEngineer minorly upset at me.
 
2:58 AM
@spugsley Do you drink tea?
 
@AshleyNunn YASSSS
 
@spugsley do you know of an asian market near you?
 
@AshleyNunn I do! English Breakfast is the bestest. Then Earl/Lady Grey
 
Because you should try citron tea.
 
I need to change my avatar...
 
2:59 AM
IT IS AWESOME
It's a jar of delicious gloop that makes tea.
 
Almost done cutting my current model off the runners!
 
@Frank woooo!
@RPiAwesomeness Lady Grey wins, sorry
 
How do I do that? I have only done it once...
 
Then painting, and LEDs.
 
2:59 AM
@TheX Oh yes. @Frank is the one who does crazy stuff with robot model doods.
 
cc @Fluttershy
 
@Frank ooooh, I am excited for the light up bits
 
>_>
