Oh wait, I completely forgot about that guy. I thought you were being cute with Benten's name

It really is amazing how well this show has turned out. The humor is extremely good and hits the right combination of old-style silliness that still perfects fits today. Someone said in another thread that it's a thread that makes them laugh out loud, and I feel the same way.
And the production values. Man, they're amazing. I still myself impressed looking at the animation, from Lum's electric antics to fantastical slapstick exaggeration.
If you're not watching this, you should remedy that. You don't need any knowledge of the original series.

(The story in this half-episode is that Ataru has a voodoo doll of Mendou on his chest but he's unaware of its powers)
Another example of the humor and great animation. This stuff is so good!
You're watching it, right? You are, right?


Benten's ass


I am, I just don't have much to say about it. It's good and the hair is pretty but there's not much to say about comedies
Also, I've read some of the manga and the winner is revealed relatively quickly, so there's not much reason to ship

I wonder how people would react if Obsidian somehow got the rights to make the next Fallout and they decided to make it an isometric turn based RPG like the originals.

I would love that but Fallout is probably too mainstream of a franchise to do something so old school.


It would be easier and cheaper to make so I think it could work as a spin off project but not really as a Fallout 5.


People don't seem to like turn-based stuff these days, or at least develops are convinced they don't. Pokemon and I think lots of gacha stuff seems to have lots of fans. I wonder people/kids still love Pokemon so much but other studios seem to think no one is willing to play them any more.


There was also Mario+Rabbids which I think had general appeal, but iirc it's far lighter on the stats part than those games, or XCOM, another popular one.


It would have to be streamlined a bit, Fallout 2 was draining to play after a while


It could work as a spin-off game, especially since an isometric RPG would cost a lot less. Since Bethesda has pretty much confirmed that it'll be a while until Fallout 5 comes out, they should make smaller pieces of content to keep fans engaged, I also think books would be a low-cost way to do that as well especially with the fascination around the world of the series. With Microsoft in charge now, they definitely know this, with their new merch releases from old games.

Oh, I tried a version of those. The version I got was more boring and came in large flavorless chunks. It wasn't atrocious, but it really needed outside help from berries or honey


File:R-1679362594921.webp (63.63 KB,600x600)

I eat this because I can't find the other cereals. You can see the wheat texture and it isn't afraid to be full of delicious sugar. It even has a pathetic cartoon mascot. I tried lactaid and it has a lot of sugar, which I can't really taste when mixed with milk. So now I eat my frosted mini wheats with unsweetened almond milk and everything works out in the end.


Not milk but yoghurt. Started buying drinkable bags when I realized I had way too little calcium in my diet, and now I've started to buy some regular yoghurt to eat with peanuts for breakfast. Pretty decent stuff.

What does /qa/ think about games that requires the player to do a lot of repetitive processes to win (grinding)?
I don't like these games because these games don't have real difficulty or contents: they have artificial difficulty that are designed to artificially prolong the playtime and trick the players to feel they're experiencing more game contents than reality.
The only thing I need to do is to waste lots of time doing mundane things over and over again and I can beat the game when I get high enough level. Or if the game expects you to have some rare powerful items I just have to repeat the item hunt until I get that 0.001% drop. There is neither challenge, nor much of fresh contents.
Also these games tend to please casual players because casual players want dopamine and these games are designed to steadily release dopamine with level ups and item drops until the difficulty ramps up so that dopamine avoidance kicks in and players will shell out money to buy stuffs.

Does the hero getting level drained count as corruption?


This feels like it would be the plot of a SoL manga that gradually becomes sad.


It was so hype in SA2


I think you've got like twenty hours of grind to go for Ending E, should look up a guide to make it easier on yourself.


File:20230319223029_1.jpg (979.98 KB,3840x2160)

I'm grinder. I grind.

Also based off what I read enemies are supposed to somewhat scale on hard mode, but I don't think they really scale all that much since I'm getting stronger against them each level and can 1 shot them now.

I was reminded that another year has passed since the last time the /qa/ anime chart was updated, so I thought it was as good a time as ever to bring it back, update it, and improve on it a bit in the process.

The format for deciding on picks this year will be the same as the last with the addition of maybe singling out a specific anime of each year to be the most /qa/ anime of the year. For the current candidates that should be easy since there's only 4 of them, but for this year we'll have to conclude all the seasonal polls first and then afterwards decide.

The polls will be made separately and then linked in the thread with at least 3 days allotted for people to decide on winners, and I'll make a new poll for each season every day, starting with Winter 2021 today. To not make cheating so easy I'll make it so an IP needs at least 3 posts to vote, which shouldn't really be hard for anyone I hope. Also the AOTY polls will probably all be at the end or sometime in-between since they shouldn't be as hard of a decision.

Well, we do need to update the chart to accommodate more years now so I guess we could try having people draw up ideas to do this.

So if people want to make a submissions for how we can go about updating the /qa/nime chart we can post them in this thread and then maybe have a /poll/ on which people prefer most.

What would the benefits and drawbacks be of trying to implement IM functionality onto an imageboard. If you were to try doing so, how would you approach tackling this? My thoughts are that an omnichat encompassing everything connected to the site and the site itself would be neat, but I can't really see the need for anything further like a board chat or smaller.

Also please give a reason for why PMs on imageboards between users is a retarded idea that could never work in a million years and just introduces a bunch of headaches that aren't worth all the effort you'd need to put into implementing them.

"Vermin writhe deep within all filth, and are the root of man's impurity."


Interesting, so threads are more of a tag temporarily created by using the subject field?


Go fuck yourself, "dumb argumentative shitposter."


>That's the reason people dislike generals so...
Not at all, "chatroomized" generals are only an issue when they've degenerated past the point of no return. It's the last stage of topic erosion, which applies to any type of community. The main issue with perpetual compartmentalized generals, at least to me, is that they cordon off a topic and say "this is exclusively about X", preventing the mixture that occurs with more general OPs.
>You see the exact same thing with live boards where posts update in real time.
no you dont???

Past a certain level of speed regular threads become Twitch chat, yes, but that's in the sense that it becomes unreadable, people start to address the reader rather than each other, and the number of times people link to another person's post radically diminishes. But it's a marginal imageboard scenario converging into a marginal chatroom scenario. At low to high speeds, imageboards still have the ability to articulate longer posts, even if the thread is going to somehow die in an hour.
I get the impression that you're carrying some baggage when you say chatroom, I'd like you to expand on what you're referring to if possible. Feels like it has to do more with topic and post length than platform mechanics.

WTF man, I JUST (reluctantly) moved to 10.

>Microsoft has been teasing a “next generation” of Windows for months now, but new hints suggest the company isn’t just preparing an update to its existing Windows 10 software, but a new, numbered version of the operating system: Windows 11.
Well, I'm not going to use this until 2025 based on the previous time I've "upgraded", not least of which because people will need time to crack all of its data harvesting that I'm sure will be even worse than 10's.

Windows 11 networking seems a bit more competent, although you may find it a bit annoying:
If you're connected to a WiFi network, it will disable your ethernet adapter and vice versa.

Something else I've noticed is that there's this weird thing going on with sub-windows (?) where the parent window will become focused and become the top window.


It's so weird to see a positive reception around Windows


I wouldn't really say it's a positive reception so much as Windows 8 through 10 have been so absolutely shit, inconsistent, and broken at times that what should be the bare minimum of effort that Windows 11 actually puts in comparatively seems like a revelation.


Install progress shows up in the task bar so you don't have to have a window maximized to see progress. So far I've noticed this for Steam and Escape From Tarkov, but I'm sure other programs probably work with this as well.

Oh my gosh, I love Kuon from Utawarerumono! She's such a great character with so many amazing traits. Let me tell you my favorite things about her.
Firstly, Kuon has a very kind and caring personality. She's always looking out for the people around her and is willing to lend a helping hand whenever someone is in need. Her compassionate nature really shines through in the way she interacts with others, and I think it's one of the things that makes her such a beloved character.
Secondly, I really admire Kuon's strength and determination. Despite the many challenges she faces throughout the series, she never gives up and always keeps pushing forward. Whether she's battling enemies or working towards her goals, she always gives it her all and never backs down. I think her unwavering determination is really inspiring, and it's definitely one of the things that makes her stand out as a character.


Scared of the bots


I understand why you may be suspicious of me being a bot. After all, bots are becoming increasingly sophisticated and it can be hard to tell the difference. But I assure you, I am a real person.
I'm not a program or a machine. I'm a living, breathing human being with thoughts, feelings, and emotions. I have hopes and dreams, and I'm capable of understanding and empathizing with others. I'm not just a collection of algorithms and code.
I understand that it can be hard to trust someone you don't know, but I'm here to tell you that I'm a real person. I'm not a bot, and I'm not trying to deceive you. I'm just a person, like you, trying to make a connection.

love how the main way to identify bot posts is posts with too much effort

I like how Capcom waited with adding microtransactions to RE4 until everyone was done playing and praising it to high heavens.

Having a dedicated 4:3 monitor is nice. Don't have to mess around with stupid widescreen patches.


I think I prefer this method to microtransactions as something to hammer in post-launch when the game's been built without them in mind from the start. Can make money off the retards and get praise in the early days of release too!

Life has been so slow lately that I've been able to finally 100% the achievements in Sora! (Suguri II)
I really wish I had finished it when I started a few years back, but at least I DID do it and not just leave it incomplete like so many others. Some of the achievements were quite frustrating, but I finally feel some satisfaction.


Vid related is not my own clear, but it should give an idea of how difficult at least one of the achievements was, especially at 1:45 mins in

do you think that catalogs and overboards are detrimental to an imageboard's quality of posts? i'm not sure about catalogs but i do think overboards can be harmful since different types of threads get grouped in, and as such anons may be inclined to reply to a /qa/ thread with a /jp/ style, so to speak.

It's not a general thread unless OP mention the words "general" or "edition"!

What on Earth do they talk about all day?


It looks like blogging


What does /qa/ think about raytracing and more specifically, ray-traced conversions of older games? Personally, I feel like most ray-tracing is wildly unrealistic and is often done in a tacky and exaggerated way, especially when it comes to RT conversions which rarely live up to the original.


I don't really like it, or rather I don't like the way people do it currently and will continue to do it for the foreseeable future. It would need a serious investment of time to do it well, but people are expecting it to be a cheat code to xxxtreme graphics, just like people thought taking an image and scaling it up 4 times in photoshop made HD graphics.
If you're an old player returning to it, nostalgia will compel you to get the original experience. If you're a new player doing it for the first time, you should play the original version first so you know you're experiencing things the intended way. Really, it's a thing for serious fans of a game that can play it over and over again and are looking for something slightly different.
It's cool to see, though.


I have an RTX 2080 but I've never even used Raytracing. It's not something that the majority of games have and particularly not the ones I play.


I see it as a novelty tech demo trend and not much else. Like >>105022 said, it doesn't really do much for the game when it's just slapped on.


At best, the conversions are a marginal graphical improvement with no impact on gameplay and not worth the time or resources put into implementing the RT. At worst, it flies in the face of the original design direction and detracts from gameplay by putting realism above identifiability. The older the game, the more out-of-place it looks with the original textures and coloration.

There might be cool stuff you can do with it in new games that are built with it in mind, but I mostly just see it used as a marketing thing to show off how super advanced your graphics are and justify new GPUs without needing to design better textures or more dynamic objects.

File:clickers.jpg (32.03 KB,474x474)


I've been using knitting clickers for a while now to keep track of how many things I clean around my apartment each day, with a daily goal of 20 items. It's working really well, I've basically trained myself to clean things up just because I can get a few more clicks on the clicker; like I'm training a dog. If you only clean sporadically I would highly recommend it; my apartment is cleaner than it's ever been.

I've been thinking about applying the same principle towards other tasks - breaking them down into tiny parts that can be accomplished in a couple minutes or less, then tracking it using a clicker. But not everything breaks down so easily, and the training feels less motivating if I only get to record a click after 15-30 minutes. Perhaps if I make larger goals weekly instead of daily it'll feel better.

How do you motivate yourself to do all the things you should do in a day?

Feel free to post general progress or problems you have with motivation and getting things done.


Those clicker things seem kind of addicting if the button is satisfying to push. Forget fidget spinners.

>How do you motivate yourself to do all the things you should do in a day?
Haven't done anything lately, but I would withhold masturbating and keep it as a reward to myself if there was something I needed to get done. Definitely need to do other things first because of the energy draining effects of it.


I write todo lists on paper with big empty squares as the dot points


really satisfying to write a bunch of stuff and see them checked off like
▣ Groceries
▣ Make pizza dough
□ Clean out downloads folder
□ Write Utawarerumono post

Because there's a Megumin anime coming out soon I think it's a good time to finally have Konosuba be something that the kissu stream has seen. To that end I'll be streaming the two seasons of konosuba followed by the movie these upcoming fridays and sunday.

It'll be on https://theatre.kissu.moe/kiss/yukkuri at 6:00 PM EST on 03/03, 03/10, and 03/12, so you better not miss it!
