And determined!


looking back now that its almost over i can appreciate how the show turned into a harem solely to provide filler amd keep interest until the actual story was returned to
a nice work around to avoid adding a bunch of stupid stuff to the main plot to drag it out


Yeah, it was much better than the typical RomCom subplots that always get repeated ad nauseam.


This show sucks. I don't know what I was expecting.

How did streamers get so prevalent in modern society and what's the big pull of them? Is there any reason why people watch people play video games over doing anything else?
8 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


don't forget about all the poor children (or even adults sometimes) that either can't or won't pirate but still want to experience the newest flavor of the month game so they can talk with their friends. those people make up a sizeable chunk of the lets play and streamer audience


Yeah, I was going to mention this. The internet is global these days and that includes a lot of impoverished nations. Not only that, but when I was a a kid we could rent games so our parents didn't need to spend $50 for us to experience a new game. (my family couldn't afford that, personally)


The appeal of streamers is a mix of parasocial interaction and the entertainment ability of the streamer themselves. I'd say watching a streamer is less like watching sports and more like watching a comedian, though many also enjoy streamers for their gameplay ability, but I don't think this is too common.


It's sort of like what >>73384 said. Try to think of it more as putting on the radio as background noise when you're doing stuff.


It's because they're versatile. They're like podcasts with visuals; interactive letsplays; chatrooms with a video playing in the background, etc.


I'm guessing Kissu is a bit too isolated to have noticed, but what do you make of the Troll face coming back to prominence?

A similar thing has happened with (de)motivational poster-style memes, but their usage is quite a bit different. Having been adapted towards use in videos, they're often used to highlight some absurd thing in a freeze frame, obviously with accompanying text. Granted, the text itself isn't styled like a demotivational, but more like a caption

Also somewhat revived has been Doge with Cheems and the buff Doge, although those are basically completely unrecognizable from how it was originally aside from the usage of doge as a template character.

The "oh my gawd!" scene of Azumanga Daioh is the funniest and most iconic bit in anime history they're many like it but this one is the very best. You may debate on this but you will lose as the charm, timing and wit is on a level that is incomparable.

I've heard there's this "wallpaper engine" thing to have animated desktop wallpapers. I know I could google it, but I think a thread could be fun Does anyone have experience with this thing? Maybe we can make some.

Never have I ever wished to buy something on steam as much as this.


File:2021-06-10 22-44-21.mp4 (4.62 MB,1280x720)

That image isn't to my taste, though, well, a bit too realistic/gross with the holes down there.
Anyway, the vast vast vast majority of the wallpapers making upload are just cute or pretty. The initial setup question at the beginning of opening it is "show anime content"? presumably because it's such a massive part of the stuff people are uploading, which is nice. Although there's a bit of "anime girl 152" which is unfortunate, but I guess something to expect from non-curated uploads.
This Miku one is really nice and I'm going to do a search for Miku tomorrow probably since she inspires the most beautiful stuff generally

You can see here that I roughly gave the breasts different directions (for this demonstration I didn't actually do correct areas). I'll have to get a hang of this, but it's pretty impressive

File:NVIDIA-GeForce-RTX-3080-Gr….jpg (125.24 KB,2560x1440)


/qa/, are there really any games out that take advantage of newer GPUs? Looking at benchmarks, my current GPU scores about as well as a GTX 980, which is quite a bit weaker than something like an RTX 3080.

The only new game I was remotely interested in recently was Cyberpunk 2077 and that game seems to run pretty poorly on all hardware, but still it ran alright with my aging GPU. The only reason I can think to want to upgrade right now would be for VR stuff since that can be pretty performance intensive, especially with newer headsets getting higher resolution.
2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


cmon OP, you gotta know that if you ask these kinds of questions you should always post your full PC specs or it makes answering anything difficult


VRAM is one of the biggest reasons to upgrade from older stuff. Developers are making more use of it and when you breach the maximum your game really starts to chug. It's not a progressive thing, either, if you have 4GB on your card then a game using 0.01GB or 3.99GB will run the same, but once you hit 4.00001GB you suffer because it gets moved to regular RAM or the CPU or something.

Yeah, my 6GB of VRAM wasn't enough for running two different texture mods on that alongside raytracing. I really wonder how Minecraft stores this stuff because the files themselves are miniscule and measured in KB.


I'm not looking for recommendations, I'm just curious what other people think.


all of them if you want 1440p/144FPS maxxx details


You're not going to see many games take advantage of newer GPUs until they stop being new. It's really easy for games made for old hardware to scale up, but it's very, very hard to do the opposite.

Do you keep a journal, /qa/? I write my thoughts an other stuff down so I will remember them in the future. You might think a NEET wouldn't have much to write about but I actually have a lot done since I started living the dream. You should keep a journal too!

i saw this image on sushi when someone was telling their first kiss story...


always wanted to but it failed every time for various reasons


Dreamed about playing a videogame so vividly that I think I was able to attain some actual proficiency in the game...

I wonder if I could make a guide based on these kind of dreams in a journal?


Sometimes I think of writing a new entry after years but then again I have problems with a)verbal expression b)contents c)physical writing process, bad handwriting, bad pens.
The modern diary could be contained within a camcorder but I'm not crazy enough to show myself making my show about how my POV stands out and contradicts another sense, or whatever I'm thinking of at some point.
I keep my thoughts for the rest of concsciousness left before falling asleep or for nightwalking.


File:1592393599833.png (26.82 KB,299x307)

I find that I usually lose my thoughts and move onto the next thing just by thinking about writing it down, I instead wait until im writing something, drawing, or making music to let my thoughts shine through there
i dont count it a journal but i used to and still occasionally use a certain board on a certain site to express thoughts coming straight from my mind

File:Kodi - PseudoTV.png (53.69 KB,1920x1080)


I'm sure /qa/ has heard of Kodi - a media player most infamous for hosting plugins that enabled piracy. But! That's not what I want to talk about!

A common problem I find with local streaming solutions like Plex, or Emby, or even paid streaming services like Netflix or Hulu, is that although there's mountains of content to be potentially watched, the sheer number of options makes it impossible to find anything to watch. And, so, your backlog steadily grows ever longer as you download more and more content that you will never watch.

So, that's where a really cool plugin for Kodi can step in! PseudoTV! Essentially, you point it to media directories and dictate how it should play episodes: randomly or sequentially, and in essence, it creates a sort of TV station for all the media you've amassed! You can even set up ads breaks, set channel logos, and browse the program guide for what's coming up throughout the day. And, unlike with standard TV, if there's nothing on that you want to watch, you can time-skip to a later point when there is something on that you want to watch. Moreover, you don't just have to have one station: you can set up multiple. For example, you might setup an anime movie TV channel, a TV anime TV channel, a live-action TV channel, a movie channel, and so on.

Maybe this is too niche of a thing for most people to want to deal with, but I still think it's a really neat idea.



A niche idea it may be, but I think I kinda like the idea of flipping through channels of my unwatched media. That's probably the only thing about TV I miss, being able to relax and sit down while putting *something* on.


I'm fascinated by the psychology behind this. How has it worked for you OP?


I feel this could work really well for watching super long episodic anime series that one would usually have only experienced by catching it on TV, stuff like Lupin, or Keroro Gunsou


i really like the concept behind this, now that ive started watching seasonal anime it feels weird to start an already aired show that I can watch in one go so this is nice as it puts already aired shows at the same pace as seasonals or maybe even faster im not sure how this works


i was thinking about this more, it seems like it would be possible for a community (/qa/) to create a cooperative drive or something that is then used to make channels
an issue is that the only way I can think of to access it would be to keep a stream of the channels going at all times which doesnt seem very possible outside of using the first person who joins in a session to host it until they leave

File:faf.jpg (250.94 KB,1278x870)


Would /qa/ be interested in playing Supreme Commander again? I've been playing it recently and it's a really fun RTS which seems like it'd be great for a long brawl or team battle. Once into later stages the spectacles of battle are really nice to enjoy, with giant robots and such all over the place. All you need to do, if you don't have it already, is get the game https://store.steampowered.com/app/9420/Supreme_Commander_Forged_Alliance/ (which is on super sale until June 3rd) and then the client for multiplayer https://www.faforever.com/

If anyone's interested just say so in the thread, we can set up a big game with kissu.

Will be opening another lobby in half an hour, if you want to get in make sure to come quick because they fill up fast!

I don't know if anyone'll join. But the lobby is set up again should anyone want to, going to make some dinner and start the game when I come back:

Lobby name: /qa/
PW: friends

Does /qa/ have an accent?

I recorded myself doing some karaoke a little while ago and noticed I have an accent when pronouncing some Japanese words. I've never really considered myself having an accent before. From what I've heard other people say, the Midwest is pretty accent-less so it was a really strange experience noticing how oddly I pronounced some words that seemed utterly normal when I was in the midst of saying them.

Some british folks once applauded my british pronunciation. I don't know whether they were being honest or just bantering.


File:[FFF] Gochuumon wa Usagi D….jpg (187.11 KB,1920x1080)

not sure what accent this connects to but i tend to pronounce vowels softer like tuhdahy instead of tooday or eyhg instead of aeg (egg)
i think it could be a confused british american accent because i was raised in America but my parents had spent many years in England up until I was born


Insofar as I don't sound exactly like a native speaker of the standard variety of the languages I speak, yeah, but I don't think anyone could pinpoint my nationality just from what I sound like in my L2s.


I can't distinguish British and Australian accents really at all.

Would /qa/ be interested in watching some old OVAs together? We had a few of these streams years ago where we watched things like YKK, Mamono Hunter Youko and Dragon Half, and they were pretty fun. Unlike a TV series stream, you can join or leave in the middle and not feel lost, so you don't have to commit to watching a full 5+ hour stream. Plus, it's a nice way to check out some lesser known anime you may have missed otherwise.

Making this thread to gauge interest, and for suggestions on what to watch.

now that was a short stream


Nice stream. Gave me an idea for a suggestion: Bari Bari Densetsu. It's the Initial D author's first series, and it's about motorcycle racing. There's a 2 episode OVA and a movie that combines them.


sounds pretty good, love initial d


File:explorer_mfcxfsinvz.png (24.72 KB,320x327)

Had a look through my unwatched folder and these are the OVAs with a total runtime under 2 hours that I have in there. Let me know if you are particularly interested in any of these.

The aforementioned Bari Bari Densetsu is unfortunately a shitty, tiny rip (352x288), but you can't really afford to be picky with these things, I suppose.

Does /qa/ know of any nice places to get stickers or have any themselves?

I'm not normally a fan of stickers, or really modifying the look of my devices, but I'm planning on getting something white and I've been having a hard time trying to find a nice sticker of Shobon. I tried looking at some custom sticker services but for a single sticker they typically want something ridiculous like $40 for just the one!

there was a canadian dude who used to make /g/ related stickers and patches but it seems that his site is dead. it was called patchdynamics I think


here's another one with patches. they're not stickers but you can just stick velcro on your computer and change the patches once in a while, I think there's a regular thread on /k/ where people exchange them


Stickers is for going out and I haven't used laptops in public places or outdoors for years.

Used to do it often when I had to bum wifi though.


No, because I suppress my power level.


I got the sticker from Etsy.

File:161938985987.jpg (32.83 KB,399x399)

I was thinking about making an imageboard where every board would be user's blog so only the board owner would be able to make threads in their boards as if it was blogger or wordpress and anons would post their opinions in the threads so the BO can get feedback. Of course every blog entry would be archived so nothing will get lost. I don't know if it's a good idea but I like the concept of mixing imageboards with personal spaces.


I say go for it. I've been considering doing something like that too, I just lack the technical knowhow to make it a reality.


File:[MoyaiSubs] Mewkledreamy -….jpg (380.12 KB,1920x1080)

Not a bad idea, but how would people find a blogboard they're interested in? You'd need to prepare for hundreds of boards, if not thousands if by some miracle it takes off in a huge way.


I only ever knew of Futaba and Momizou. Honestly I never could get far into either of them. Even being able to read Japanese well enough didn't make them interesting discussion places at most times.


From my experience, most of the substantial discussion happens on 2ch. The content of the discussions itself is, of course, pretty hit or miss.
