The "master race" meme is a plot made by brown skinned and jewish subhumans used to derail its original meaning related to the Aryan Herrenvolk. Because it implies those brown skinned and jewish subhumans are inferior to the good old White Man (which is 100% true), they decided to force this meme to the foolish and gullible videogaming community and slowly drive people to forget the true nature of these words.
It is really sad seeing people still falling for it.

It might have been a sequel but I was interested in The Last Guardian about half a decade ago. I would still like it but I wouldn't be excited, it's a bit too late for that.

Hello. We're looking for some people who'd like to play the wixoss TCG with us. Considering we're playing online I figured this technically counts as /vg/.

Most of you probably recognize wixoss as a fairly crazy, rather crap and yet somewhat enjoyable anime that aired last year (split cours, one in Spring, one in Autumn). The anime was made to promote the card game in a fairly unusual way - the rules are never really explained in detail and the show does its very best to ignore the card game and focus on the plot (although all the cards played in the anime have TCG versions as well and they share the same effects).

The TCG itself is surprisingly fun. I decided to give it a try just for the heck of it (simply because I was watching the anime really) but I've gotta say I'm rather impressed by it. The rules are deceptivly easy - after I read them I couldn't imagine the game being anything but terrible and boy was I wrong.

Anyway, we have a small - and frankly, somewhat unactive but we're looking to change it! - gaming group. IRC is our preferred 'contact method'. Using mibbit is more than good enough. For starters you can join #tohno-chan on Rizon and if I'll spot you expressing interest in wixoss I can teach you how to play (with hands on experience of course, since reading the rules takes like 5 minutes).
If you're clueless about IRC use /irc/ to join the channel.

For now we're using Lackey with the Bato-Ruu plugin. We might switch to webxoss once the card database will get fully updated but that might take a while.

Anyway, here's the stuff you'll need:
• Lackey:

Just awful. The older cinematics kept with the theme of western fantasy, but this one just blows for more than that reason. The fight scene made me think of those really lame ass Steven Segal or Jackie Chan movies.

"i want no trubbu xD" and he beats a few knuckleheads with no effort while being serious and doing some few things for cheap laughs from the audience, like that panda did when straightening out the lamp or whatever the hell that was.

Fuck. How can you base an ENTIRE expansion after just Pandas? Who is the enemy? Where is the conflict?

1st Expansion trailer: Horde vs Alliance conflict, powerful people fighting for their own race and faction.

2nd Expansion trailer: More horde vs Alliance along with a common enemy in Illidan, another great trailer.

3rd Expansion trailer: The Lich King, the summation of lore in the warcraft games, crowning expansion for the game.

4th Expansion trailer: Wrapping up side stories for multiple other lore important characters from the dragon soul books, the equivalent of the 2nd expansion, the game winding down.

I searched every board and could not find a thread for this. Either I am blind or there is not one. Yes, I know there's a Dwarf Fortress thread, but that is not the same thing.

My favorite game is Nethack and I never get a chance to talk about it. I suppose I sometimes do in the IRC, but IRC is too fast for me.

Anyone here play Nethack?

No Mass Effect 3 thread? Hasn't anyone played it? I demand a Mass Effect 3 discussion thread.

I finished it a couple of days ago, and I have to say... I loved it. It had some weird purely graphical glitches, but other than that, perfect. Sure, I've heard people whine about it, but I can't see why.

The multiplayer mode is oddly fun, too. I expected it to suck, but it's pretty awesome. Sort of reminds me of Space Marine's Exterminatus mode, except... Is better. Only problem is that since that's the only thing it does, I wouldn't expect long life for it. Just a 4 person co-op with a few maps and three different types of enemies that you have to survive 10+ waves... That's not a lot of MP modes.

As for the SP game again, the ending was (don't read on if you don't want to be spoiled, really)... Suitable. I haven't really felt that sad in ages because of a game. Regardless of what you choose, the galaxy is forever changed... And there's no way for them to sneak in a fourth game. They did leave a massive loose end though... How will all the fleets in Earth orbit get back home, or will Earth become the new home of a dozen species?

I can't believe Shepard's gone. Forever. The only thing I disliked really was the thing that comes AFTER the ending. The same you had in ME1 and 2 where you can "continue" after you finish it... It really doesn't fit ME3. The end should be the end. SHEPARD'S DEAD, for crying out loud! The Normandy is no more! It sooooo doesn't fit the game.

Either way, anyone else gotten through it yet?

>for the closure it gave
You mean none because there is no closure, everything you did was for nothing as the galaxy is fucked anyway and they don't give any explanation to what happens afterwards.

>I wanted there to be something to allow them to weasel in more games
Bioware already said that the ME universe was open for more games.

Anyway, I hope the indoctrination theory is true and that bioware did something radically different than what people think they did.

If you don't know the indoctrination theory I'll explain.

The entire last 15-30 minutes of the game are a dream/indoctrination. If you pick the endings the reapers/citadelAI want you to pick Shepard becomes indoctrinated/dies.
If you pick the destroy Reaper end, Shepard fights the indoctrination attempt and wakes up in London after the credits.

Notice that the Renegade option was done by Anderson, a paragon, and the paragon option was done by TIM, a renegade. The third synthesis option is what the space kid (who is an AI that technically works for the Reapers) wants. In other words the Reapers are trying to influence your "decision".

It's just a case of "all paths lead to Rome". I wasn't so disappointed because I hadn't gotten into all the hype, but after reading it, I can see why people are annoyed. I'm still not, but I can see why others are. Apparently this isn't how it was supposed to be, because there was supposed to be, as they said, "divergent endings".

And I do know what the indoctrination theory is. Although, I think there's some proof of the indoctrination having started well before the last few minutes. The dream sequences? The times when Shepard all of a sudden hears voices (not Reaper voices, but voices s/he shouldn't be hearing, nor can respond to)? The dreams with the boy are so much like the dreams people being indoctrinated described in ME2. And they never elaborate on what kind of voices they hear at any point. The voices of other people, or Reaper voices? Maybe Shepard started the slow fall towards indoctrination after destroying the Alpha Relay, when s/he was at the mercy of that Reaper artifact for a few days!

Too bad that's probably giving Bioware too much credit. It's always fun to speculate, but when you start to speculate, it all boils down to this... Can you expect the people who made the story to be that creative, or are you just grasping at straws there?

Aaand, I meant that there can't be any more sequels after this if this holds.

Is there anyone here who plays Dofus? It's an MMO with 16 unique classes, a turn-based battle system, and a good sense of humor. I recently picked it back up a week ago after a 3 year hiatus. It would be cool if I could get some Brohnos to play with me. If you do decide to play, pick Shika for your server, because that's the one I'm on.
It is pay-to-play, but you can play for free up to a certain point. Plus, subscriptions do not cost very much.

Determining distances and knowing when to bomb are also very important skills. You can improve if you follow advice and by observing other players. Watching experienced players play the game can help big time. You can find out new ways to handle certain patterns that will probably work better than what you were doing. Be sure to watch one where the player uses the same ship/shot type as you do.

For a lot of games it's about planning. For instance, planning through where to bomb, when the extends occur, etc. ONce you have everything predictable, then it's a matter of practicing over and over.
