Is it possible the formulas for using those stats were changed? I doubt it, but it is a possibility.

My case worker at my mental health clinic uses hunt and peck. I use a hybrid standard typing and hunt and peck method myself. Can't do standard typing due to fucked fine motor skills.


If you decide to go back to a non BNW save, I suggest using the swdtech speedup patch. It is so needed.

For an FFXIV developer livestream, they made a silly retro version of “The Navel (Extreme)” fight that tends to whoop a lot of people. It’s not terribly authentic, but... it’s a lot of effort for a livestream gag. (and yes, dragoon players have a reputation in this game)


As a dragoon who got knocked off when trying to fight Titan: yeah I agree also I HATE THAT FUCKER

If it's in a public area where the likelyhood of people not next to you breathing in the smoke is low, I have ZERO issues with smoking in public. It'd be the same as people driving cars past a partially outdoor restaurant...

As someone who has not played them, I'm curious. How were they a step back from Gen 2?

Edit: Added to the original post to clarify what I meant.



It's a matter of bits and pieces, each one of which creates an incentive/disincentive to purchase the console. On my end, if I buy something that wants to replace the Wii, I want it to do EVERYTHING that my Wii does so I don't have to shove another unit into my gaming cabinet, and I have far more GameCube games than I do Wii games. Titles like Twin Snakes, Eternal Darkness, Second Sight, Smash Bros Melee, StarFox Assault, Crystal Chronicles,  REMake 0, ReMake 1, MegaMan AC, GC Twilight Princess, the Zelda AC and the original Wind Waker still look great to me and get regular play on my system.
By removing GameCube BC, it's a chip in a long list of cracks the Wii U possesses that create a disincentive for purchase.

Do I enjoy the few Wii-specific games I have? Of course. I own XenoBlade, Last Story, RE4: Wii Edition, Silent Hill Shattered Memories and the Prime Trilogy Collectors Edition.  But that small list of Wii titles pales in comparison to the full library of games existent in my gaming cabinet. The list of Wii U specific titles that are worth buying is so much smaller still, that to be perfectly honest buying the console would be in essence paying $300 for a less capable console than I have now.

You can say to yourself "Well, I don't use this, so it doesn't matter"- but if there's one example of someone who isn't buying the system for any particular reason, it stands to reason that there are many, many more.

You highly overestimate the demand for GC games. It was a console that ultimately sold 20 million, and most people who want to play GC games have a GC or Wii. Compare this to the Wii, which had over 100 million sold. There's a far higher amount of people who would potentially want Wii BC compared to GC compatibility in a Wii U.

For the record, this is coming from someone who thinks the GC is a better console than the Wii.

I highly doubt GC backwards compatibility is a major part of why it's selling so bad. It has Wii backwards compatibility, which for most people is much more worthwhile.

The main issue is Nintendo tried to make a Wii 2. they tried to sell it based solely off of the controller again(Despite their PR statements saying otherwise), and that was not enough.

It included an IR sensor, obviously, and likely a CPU or microcontroller as well.

Well, the gamecube apparently sold 21.74 million systems... So it's not impossible. The GC did make a profit, but it had cheaper hardware(I still don't get how the Wii U is being sold for a loss. My guess is Nintendo did not make very good manufacturing deals).

To be fair, the Xbone's been out for six months.

Yeah, you can't really compare a PS2 and PSP. the PSP could handle PS2 ports but only if they were simple games to begin with or if they were cutdown(In some cases, both).

Tegra 3 has 4 cores, and that makes up for the sheer work per clockcycle difference between it and the Core 2 Duo... In this one test. For most things? No. Emulation especially.

This is a nice complement to Feminine Fantasy, which also adds some bug fixes and stuff.

The anti-Semitic fliers being passed around were just some racist assholes trying to stir up trouble, it's been found. No connection to Russia's government(For once).

Well, it's unenjoyable. I can say that much about it, even after trying the co-op. And it doesn't get better.
This game is mediocre, and translating kusoge isn't exactly a popular thing... Tales of the Tempest non-withstanding.
However Bandai redeemed themselves with that Wonderswan Color SoM clone of theirs (Star Hearts). It's quite decent.

I betaed Tales of the Tempest.

Yes, it does. The GC is basically used as a boot loader and a video/audio output.

Storytelling is an insanely complex subject with no one right approach to it.

Like, there's the Deus Ex: Human Revolution approach, there's the Fallout New Vegas approach, there's the Final Fantasy 13 approach, there's the Portal 2 approach, there's the Borderlands 2 approach, etc etc etc etc etc.
