  1. Sent a request for Seshi to sticky the ID thread, we gamers must unite before we are completely forgotten to the anime giants...y'know all two of us apparently.

  2. Think my time here is drawing to a close. Kind of out of topics to post in and September is just around the corner which means so big name games releasing. :/

      The way this notified me, it made it seem like Seshi was leaving and I started to panic.

      NOT THAT YOU'RE LESS IMPORTANT, still sad to see a member leave, it's very true that the forum is a tad dead right now. We're working on it, basically ;D

      If you are heading out, well, do check back sometime, and uhh...

      I'm most assuredly less important, just some guy that showed up and stayed for a bit though I'm not quite gone yet, come September I probably will be unless there's something that piques my interest to return for like more gamers coming around, shoppe picks up, maybe a SoTW basically something forum based that isn't anime related.XD I might try to get a Code Vein discussion going when it gets closer it's anime-esque. Even when I'm effectively gone I tend to return like a bad penny or check for notifications every so often, really wasn't expecting any kind of response or I would have been more specific in the initial post.

  3. There now I have an anime themed signature earning myself +1 to camouflage.

  4. Well additional footage of Borderlands 3 has officially turned me off Fl4k, it appears Borderlands hasn't figured out it's scaling issues still for their fourth game. Player objects are easily killed even mid-level unless the footage they're releasing isn't indicative of scaling which considering how close it is to release I doubt there will be a rehaul before release and the damage for Action Skills and player objects is likewise poorly scaled making it yet another installment of your action skill only be used for the utility effects even the skills that are meant to deal damage since weapon damage vastly outclasses anything they can pull off. Zane has some hope with his holo-clone at least on the damage end as it duplicates his equipped weapon including the damage, it's the base version since unless otherwise specified the Clone doesn't get perks from Zane's other skills (there are a few that apply to the clone as well however), but the caveat is that Zane's Clone is still a player object and subject to being easily melted should it draw even slight fire in combat. The AI does largely ignore Fl4k's pets so there is a chance that Zane's Clone will deal some okay damage before being easily killed, but since it doesn't move at all if it draws aggro it dies even faster than Fl4k's pets. Zane's Barrier ability can be used in conjunction as there is an evolution to grant his Barrier his Shield's effects however it won't be possible until there are more points available and simply having the Shield in deployable form will still be weak as survivability largely comes through regenerative abilities and simply avoiding damage the Barrier like the Clone won't move and will die fairly quickly conferring only slight benefits. Despite all of Zane's action skills being potentially kill-able player objects the fact that he can use his action skill to trigger all his Kill Skills still gives him utility, but it is a higher tier build down his Sentinel tree which will render his Holo-clone dealing non-weapon scaled damage and being forgettable, the warp effect can still be of use if the clone is deployed in a safe location and you can hit Old-U and use it as a free revive. Moze seems to get the worst end of it not only does her Action Skill have it's own HP in effect being a player object it doesn't allow you to use weapon scaled damage coming with it's own attached weapons, with little or no utility to speak of Moze's action skill in the higher levels I predict will be next to useless on both Offense and Defense. Exploitable builds that elevate damage to extreme levels are already a thing so expect bullet sponging bosses that require you to use specific builds or weapons to deal significant damage to them and these setups will render standard play virtually unusable like they are in the previous installments where you can literally spend hours trying to kill an invincible, spend every single bullet you own and not put a dent into them unless you're using a pre-defined cheese build which can turn that bullet sponging slog into a fight that is not only incredibly easy, but lasts a mere few minutes tops.

  5. Spent a couple hours going through old long dead forums, old accounts, etc now I not only feel old, I'm a bit depressed. I miss how things used to be, people I used to know, conversations I once had. These days forums are mostly a relic of a bygone age and I've lost touch with every single person from every single one of those old accounts. Now that history is simply out of context conversation, broken links and broken images. Haven't even left the house in years and old friends have long since moved on most notably almost 10 years of gaming with one and now not a so much as an idle pleasantries exchanged with them. Time does indeed degrade all things I suppose.

      It's less that i put time into them and more that they're not around anymore or if they are they're relatively slow. They were a good way to kill time and stay in touch, though in terms of the latter I only ever had a single friend irl which the school system kept us separate because politics or maybe an incident that resulted in a broken arm, but it was probably political. She lives with me now, but it's not the same and our schedules don't really align, she works I don't, she sleeps at night, I sleep during the day so the actually interaction is somewhat limited and it's those times when there's nothing going on even if it's just fleeting that you miss the good ol' days and the other people you used to know.

      That almost sounds like a real life version of a romance anime. XD

    4. Vitis


      Does it? I'd imagine you could draw connections with most people's live to a number of anime. Art mimics life as they seem to say, but one hitch with it being a romance is our relationship is platonic.

  6. I'm bored and have some free time so my shoppe is officially open. It's a bit of a read, but it's mostly dotting the 'i's and crossing the 't's and can be skimmed for the most part.

  7. In an effort to find the best sausage style meat stick I ordered 22 types now I'm swimming in meat. Might not have thought this one through especially when trying to get through them without them molding since they're varying degrees of dryness not to mention the leftover jerky from the previous round. Could be worse I suppose I could have over ordered something 'healthy' and not delicious. Long live the meat industry I for one welcome my inevitable massive coronary and say it was worth it. If anybody is curious Old Trapper Hot and Spicy won the jerky round though walking away with the number 2 slot for taste the overall texture and the fact that it didn't make me violently ill like the number 1 slot in taste gave it number 1 overall. Uncle Mike's Spicy Hot was number 1 in taste, but it was onion powder heavy which I can only tolerate small amounts of onion even in powder form so for the vast majority of folks who can eat onions and garlic it shouldn't make them sick though they're above average in heat level relative to other products who claim to be spicy so that may be a turn off if you only like mild levels of spice. Texture wise Uncle Mike's was tough as shoe leather though there is always some variation in these products they usually hover around a baseline texture and since crowning Old Trapper as the winner I've returned to the brand and it is consistently fairly soft for jerky anyway.

      That’s how my hubs eats when we go out to Golden Corral.. I’m like.. there’s everything here, why do you gotta get 3 different meats and no sides 🤣

    3. Vitis


      Why can't meat be a side? Seems a little foodist to say a meat has to be an entree and only an entree, I believe in a united dinner where any food no matter it's origin can strive to be anything it wishes. I say yes to candied bacon for dessert, I say yes to a side of chicken wings and I say yes to bacon soda though I horribly regret saying yes to the latter, but I won't say it can't strive to be the best beverage it can be.

    4. Seshi


      XD I tried bacon soda too.. Cant say I was satisfied with the result. Maple bacon ice cream on the other hand... very tasty.

  8. Season 3 of Borderlands VIP program is now up, items can be pre-obtained for Borderlands 3 at this time however unlike scaling to when you claim them as 2 and TPS items do these are locked to level 10 also of note is that these are Epic items (purple rarity) where most of the items available for 2 and TPS have been legendary or higher.

  9. Just temporary, but it beats nothing and a cover photo was uploaded this day.

  10. In Spaceball's when Dark Helmet says he's Lonestar's father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate he could have simply shortened it to say that he was Lonestar's cousin's former roommate. Your father's brother's nephew's cousin is simply your cousin since your father's brother is your uncle and you are uncle's nephew even if you have a sibling you'd still be your uncle's nephew and your cousin is clearly your cousin and it wouldn't even have to be your uncle's child since you can have multiple sources for cousins and even more if you simply view cousin as a generalization term that can include first cousins, second cousins, third cousins, etc etc to vary degrees of separation, but the point is that I'm really bored, but father's brother's nephew is simply yourself and syntactically null in this sense. Furthermore since you can pretty much be anybody's roommate Dark Helmet could be any relation to Lonestar so when he goes one to say what that makes them, it doesn't actually make them anything which is true, but it doesn't not make them anything either.

  11. Signature finished now just need to muster enough enthusiasm to finish a cover photo.

  12. Am I missing the suggested px area for a cover photo or isn't there one and it's more trial and error to get the right size?

    1. Seshi


      I believe the optimal image size is 1000px by 250px for the cover photo. Hope this helps you. I'm going to try and update the wording to make that more clear now. Thanks for pointing it out.

    2. Vitis


      Thanks, that does help I was going to make all new items to fill out my profile since I had some time and ended up skipping the cover for the time being.
