  1. I'm torn between forcing levity and insisting you'll come back (they always do eventually!!!) and actualy not being a shit and respecting the spirit of the post. We haven't spoken recently but nevertheless I consider you a friend, an inspiration for personal growth and a damn nice guy. Your attitudes towards people and getting to kmow them has informed my decision on how to do so and I think I take the friendlier option more than I otherwise would have if we hadn't met here. If i helped your experience here be a positive one I'll consider it an honour and a pleasure. I was gonna call it a bloody pleasure but the expletive just sounds weird now. Looping back to the first thing I said though, even if you don't come back, so long as reborn sticks around you'll always be welcome. There's no end of members who've benefited from you being here and I can say with full confidence, from all of those people. Thank you for being our friend Arkhi.
  2. So, Persona: Child Labour. I dunno about that, chief.
  3. The community is large enough and self sustaining enough that even in spite of a year plus between the main attraction of the site being updated, the community persists. It's arguably already died several deaths. Whole generations of users who came in waves over the years have left. Not just people hopping on to ask a question and go but regulars who took part in the old league and community events, stuck around and made friend groups, had drama happen. The site has actual history now but at the same time, we're going to lose that history as the community changes and the people who remember rotate out and we change platform. From pokemon online, to pokemon showdown, to discord, to the next platform that suits our needs at the time. You want something fancy to match the grandiose concept of existential dread? Nothing ever really stops existing, it just changes form. If nothing else, traces of this community will persist in the attitudes and memories that people take with them to other people and places. Even if it is as base and simple as a meme about an executor having a stupid long neck or jumping onto bandwagons.
  4. I have no influence in this conversation, I hold no power over Vic's fate. What I'm about to say is pretty much just speculation trying not to get caught up in the parts of the story that don't matter. I think there's a couple phrases that sum up my thoughts. The simplest answer is usually the right one and there's no smoke without fire. I think it's more than likely that an influential, popular celebrity of an industry overstepped their bounds whilst interacting with women. For that, he should naturally be taken out of the workplace he made toxic and learn to not do whatever he did. That's the very least. The main thing that muddies this thought process is that the whole sordid affair is scattered betwixt a series of 2,700 different political narratives from hard left people who want to drive Vic into the ground, hard right people who're coming out of the woodworks to counter the lefts public siege on Vic and then the chunky legal stuff that people go through long, expensive education to understand properly. With that in mind, this isn't a topic you can be active on. It's not a discussion that will benefit anyone by being had now when emotions are flaring from parasocial bonfires and information seems to be coming out to add fuel to that fire. This is the kind of conversation that will be best served in a few years, once the case is over, the facts are laid out and untwisted and a clear, supported narrative can be put forward. Whether that's a story on one man being cut down unjustly or a triumph over harassers. Yes, Vic's VA career will probably be ruined, to be honest I'm not too heartbroken about it. He's had some of the biggest roles throughout anime and games history so I doubt he's in dire financial straits. Give it a few turns of the news cycle and he can probably transition easily into another part of that industry with public rage none the wiser. Vic will be okay, I'm confident in that. Now, aside from the case itself. What I find interesting is that it seems like a near perfect example of parasocial relationships causing this eruption of emotion. @Commander In your first post, the way you talk about him sounds like you're familiar, calling him a nice guy and what not. I'm not going to say whether you're correct or not but give this video in the spoiler a watch, you may already be familiar with the concept but I don't lose anything linking it. Maybe you'll see something new when you consider your stance on the topic with it in mind. Sexual harassment sucks.
  5. The only true love is the friendship you form with your battered, abused, triumphant pokemon. I love those sonsabitches.
  6. More and more i'm finding its just not worth clinging to a phrase or word i'd casually use because the word itself actually has some alternate meaning somewhere else on the web of the internet that just doesn't fly. To the people who are probably tutting about the choice in backchannels or thinking about writing up a long-winded post about why you should be allowed to use the one word with that context, maybe ask yourself how much it really matters when put up against people being able to feel ok about the community they're in. This from the guy who raised a stank years ago about being able to make gratuitous dick jokes in lobby a few years ago.
  7. i missed my 5 year thinger by a day. Again.

  8. Looks like they're gonna get a second wind of sorts for enjoying the game. Their teams are steadily getting some power, there's a host of new characters they seemed to react to positively and the available power is only gonna expand as they go. Hopefully this'll whittle away complaints about boss fight difficulty now they're prepping better for it. Good god, a few of these fights are gonna ream em tho.
  9. mentions are broke as all fuck for me and Idek the forum names of like 90% of the community anymore so
  10. I'd really like them to define what they think of as difficulty in pokemon. Apparently it's not high levels given their talks on Dark rising, it's not hax given all the complaints about serra's gym and now in this episode it's not encounters that force you to try different strategies and think about what you're doing.
  11. It's all up in the air. You can have stories with a small handful of characters with very little exposure to the audience, see your typical ghost story isolated in X spooky place, that doesn't even have much happen. Instead it focuses on atmosphere. Or you can have slice of life that's just... not much happening. Just a cast of likable people doing things in their daily lives. I personally value a sense of progression within stories. You can throw as many characters as you like at me and I might get attached, depends on the individual character, whereas I'm almost guaranteed to dislike a slow pace where nothing really happens or something of note does happen but it's a small thing that didn't warrant x amount of time being spent on it. This in turn reflects whenever I write, I tend not to linger on a scene. Sometimes that fucks me over, something to catch in the editing process.
  12. Garret... stared. He stared at the small animated board and considered just what it had told him about it's identity. Then he asked himself a few questions. Was he lying? Did it matter if he was lying? What did Fortune want? Why tell Garret now? What did being a creator of the world entail? Especially if there was a community of at least ten of these beings. Questions began stacking up and in his mind Garret could almost see the weight of those questions stacking up against what he knew of the world itself. Magic and the strangeness assosciated with it was silly, it was entertaining, fun, unknowable to him and intriguing because of it. Garret's world was a small corner with a myriad of moving parts set against the dull grey and brown of the city buildings. So when faced with Fortune, claiming to have made the world he lived in, there was a lot of dissonance going on. Until another question popped into his head. What did this mean for Garret? This question brought a clarity of focus that pushed the uncertain questions he may have worried away on to the back of his mind and Garret found himself speaking with a clear voice. "Well, I'm certainly glad I brought you home now. So, you are a creator... one of many? Where are your fellows? And why are you here in this world?"
  13. I'm not posting anymore, my only form of communication will now be the status bar thank you for lsitening to this  pointless service announcement

  14. In a locke that's inherently really dangerous, you spend more time trying to keep your mons who can kill the bugs alive and in turn that opens up an opportunity to do that sweep. Fair enough for the type similarities.
