What universally beloved videogame you just can't enjoy?
  • "Soulsborne" isn't a series per se, it's an umbrella covering all the Dark Souls games, and FromSoft's other games using the same formula like Bloodborne, Sekiro, and Elden Ring.

  • Since America is bringing back kings what other kind of stuff is on your medieval wishlist?
  • I could be down for small beer being the main thing we drink.

  • "...to learn how to love, and forget how to hate"
  • It doesn't make me any less upset to listen to the song itself, but that is fantastic, lol.

  • "...to learn how to love, and forget how to hate"
  • Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky". Those crispy awesome guitar riffs, and then you start singing some trite crap about Jeebus? It's maddening!

  • Bill Withers' song "Ain't No Sunshine" could be interpreted as Hades and/or Demeter singing about Persephone.

    Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

    It's not warm when she's away

    Ain't no sunshine when she's gone

    And she's always gone too long

    Anytime she goes away

    What specific variety of some fruit do you prefer? (A particular apple, a certain mango, etc.)
  • Yellow kiwi blow green kiwi away. Little to no fuzz, so you can eat like an apple without peeling, and less tart. Also maybe a hint of banana to the taste?

  • hmmm
  • I prefer "Saltine-American", thanks.

  • The dying gasps of NY Public Library Social Media
  • I mean, this but unironically? No one should be seeing homeless people because they shouldn't be homeless.

  • [Meta] Did we drop the "what are you playing" monthly thread? Also, mods haven't been active for a while, should someone take over?
  • Gathering materials does suck, yeah. Rarely an activity I enjoy in any game.

    I can respect the opinion of wanting to skip the social parts, that's definitely not for everyone.

    Some of them I really like though, like Nico's always doing these side-eyed references to movies without actually naming them (Pulp Fiction, The Room, etc.)

  • Accurate
  • Don't do my boy Fry dirty like this.

  • [Meta] Did we drop the "what are you playing" monthly thread? Also, mods haven't been active for a while, should someone take over?
  • I'm hooked on Marvel's Midnight Suns right now. It's a little bit XCOM, a little bit Persona, and some deckbuilding on top. Some exploration and light puzzles in the hub area between missions if you like, mostly for the friendship/lore/cosmetic stuff. Got it free from Epic last month, but I'd say it's at least worth $25 or so if you find a sale.

    Edit: Also Nico Minoru is a possible party member, and I fucking love Runaways.

  • "Blue Beetle" Animated Series In Works As DC Plots Next Chapter For Superhero Franchise
  • But will it have Booster Gold? C'mon DC, we need that bromance in these dark times.

  • If Biden Isn’t the Democrats’ 2024 Candidate, Harris Will Be
  • Gross. I don't care who you are, President Cop is gonna be a no from me, dog.

  • 'We thought it was impossible:' Water frost on Mars discovered near Red Planet's equator
  • Bigger even than 1989 Belgian techno anthem "Pump up the Jam".

  • MTG Says Trump Is a 'Convicted Felon' Just Like Jesus
  • The words of the prophets are written on the bathroom walls, and toilet stalls.

  • What are some good sketch comedy shows?
  • Also fantastic, can't believe I forgot to include this one. Not only are they hilarious, but it's fun to rewatch them knowing Jordan Peele would go on to start making a name in horror. You can see the roots of that in a lot of their sketches.

  • What are some good sketch comedy shows?
  • I need to give this one another look. I watched a few episodes a while back, and it wasn't bad, but it was weird. It felt kind of like watching interdimensional cable from Rick & Morty.

  • What are some good sketch comedy shows?
  • I forgot about Mr Show.

    They also did a brief revival on Netflix a few years ago, "w/Bob & David". I think it kept the spirit pretty well.

  • What are some good sketch comedy shows?

    One of my favorite genres, always looking for more. Bonus points if it's currently on streaming.

    I've watched the absolute hell out of That Mitchell and Webb Look, Kids in the Hall, Whitest Kids U Know, and obviously SNL and MadTV but both of those had a lot of ups and downs.

    I saw the one season each that Astronomy Club and The Moth Effect had and they were both pretty good. I've seen some A Bit of Fry and Laurie, but can't find a good place to stream it. TripTank was basically a sketch show with cartoons, and I liked that a lot too.

    I haven't tried these, but someone mentioned them the other day as being fantastic. I was looking for another good CRPG after I finish my current Pathfinder WotR run so I wishlisted the bundle, and apparently had great timing.

    Bring it on, Ponce de Leon! No problo, Rob Lowe!

    TAS 1x05, immediately thought of those celebrity name rhymes they did in Community.

    Disgaea fans: How does 4 compare to 1 and 2, doods?

    I used to play the hell out of 1 and 2 back in the PS2 days, but I haven't touched the series beyond that, and haven't even played 1/2 much in the last 10 years.

    How would you rate 4 in comparison? I noticed it was on sale in the Switch eShop, and I'd love to have one of the series to play on the go.

    What I loved about the ones I played:

    • Story had a good balance of comedy and heart
    • Flexible and fun character building, with decent enough defined classes to get you started
    • Tons of post-game/side content (I didn't like every piece of it, but I liked how much there was to try.)
    • CAPTAIN GORDON, DEFENDER OF EARTH
    • Perfect geochains, though I was usually too smoothbrain for it.

    What I didn't like:

    • Item world, IIRC worse in 1 than 2?
    • Adell's siblings
    • Demon court thing?

    Side note, is there anything like Interdimensional Cable on Lemmy yet?

    Are there any "diegetic musicals"?

    For those unfamiliar with the term "diegetic music", it refers to music that's actually played in the story rather than just for the benefit of the audience. The characters can hear it too.

    With that in mind, are there any musicals where the characters acknowledge that they're constantly breaking into song? Buffy the Vampire Slayer's "Once More with Feeling" is the best example I can think of for this.

    The opposite of "Ladies and Gentlemen" would be "Whores and Scoundrels".

    Which sounds rad as fuck. Like how you'd open a speech for the Guild of Calamitous Intent.

    Is Tiny Tina's Wonderlands any good now?

    I heard it was pretty so-so on launch, and that the DLC is awful, but did the base game get better with patches?

    It's on sale on steam for 20 bucks right now, was thinking of picking it up for a new co-op game with the wife since she loved BL2.
