Re: High quality S-Video switch box??

I'll piggyback a question on yours: doesn't any intermediary between a box and a display entail some loss in quality? In other words, the mere fact that the signal has to be adapted means that there's one more connection that could mess with the display quality. I used a basic switch-box that used b...

Re: Activism, Social Justice, Protests and you: The Political Discussion Containment Thread

Yeah, when I read that I'm being called whiny and self-righteous in the first line, that doesn't really inspire me to engage. Quite the opposite; I assume the person writing those words doesn't have any ideas that are worth my time, and that they're venting for some reason I can't fathom. I'll refer...

It's interesting to see how Ramadan traverses the calendar based on posting time. I'm traveling in the UK right now, and today I saw a gathering today marking this occasion. Eid Mubarak!

^ And also unlike PCs, the homebrew emulating crowd doesn't seem nearly as prominent or viable. :/ Nor (yet) do official emulators seem like a possibility.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I finished Persona 5 without significant (months-long) pauses or breaks, which is remarkable for a game of its length. (For comparison, it took me about 3-4 years to finish Xenoblade Chronicles, will likely take that long to finish its sequel, and I like both games.) I would defend the story and its...

I know Kizyr has. I have the Saturn version, but I've never tried to play it. I think when I got it I was busy working on my dissertation, and I didn't think of it afterward. :)

Re: Axe Appreciation Thread.

One of my favorite Genesis games was Golden Axe II, which for a while confused me because two out of the three playable characters use swords. (I was young.) Thinking about it now, "Golden Sword" doesn't sound nearly as cool. The market of famous mythological swords is already too full. Sp...

In fact, though, this myth we like to believe that there's no class makes it harder, because I find people have a hard time recognizing or admitting when they're engaging in dialect supremacy, instead preferring to believe that it's all about "just being understood" or something more inno...

I'm playing Persona 5. I'm a little more than a month into the game, which progresses day by day through the life of a high schooler. I've been enjoying it immensely.

I split this topic from the other one, because neither post was really about activism or the other things identified by the OP. It seemed instead to be an opportunity to attack the posters involved.

When do you need to take breaks from games?

I've been playing Trails in the Sky: SC and thoroughly enjoying it. I'm not usually a completionist, but I find that my habits of talking to every NPC are rewarded by finding and completing various sidequests, so I've been taking the extra step and trying to get every recipe, sidequest, and chest I ...

Re: Love overall.

^ It took me playing the Sega CD version to even understand why that option could be compelling. Xenobia's love for Ghaleon in SSSC feels like it's out of some conventional villain-positioning, where the top villainness [sic] is in love with the top villain but (because dudes are busy) her devotion ...

Our society already does a lot of language policing, though it isn't as organized, nefarious, or debilitating as Orwell's version. (Summarily, I'd say it's institutionally-organized, discriminatory in some respects but empowering in others.) George Orwell knew the grip a standard privilege dialect l...
