    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    Afternoon entry:

    Well, the montage looks good in my opinion. Could do with better quality but hey, it's the best I can work with.

    I reckon this Cave Story One Life Edition's going to head south amazingly fast as some of the boss fights are just flat out Touhou when it comes to projectiles.

    Then there's others where I have a good shot at never getting hit.

    As for other stuff, I found that the starburst Tongue Tangles taste horrible. One of them, the lemon and blueberry one, tastes like Head and Shoulders shampoo.

    What I'm listening to: Slayer - Raining blood

    Something that just occured. A few Chavs decided to egg my Housemate (I share my house with one other person, a close friend). HM took my Airsoft Pulse Rifle out and started yelling back at the chavs (swear words involved)

    From what he's said, one of the Chavs pulled out a Leatherman. HM fired a single warning shot yet Leatherman chav (Sounds like a horror film) walked closer. In the name of self defence, HM fired a single Airsoft pellet into the testicles of said Chav.

    So this brings about my question: Have you ever been in a situation like that where you're being threatened?

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    Man, I wish I could've been there to see that. I haven't even ever had to deal with chavs, but I've heard enough about them that I can't help but grin every time their stupidity backfires on them.

    What is it with chavs and starting fights they can't finish, anyway?

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    What I'm listening to: Dimmu Borgir - Burn in hell

    Now that the WILT is out of the way, I can begin on what's occured this morning.

    Recorded the next area in Cave Story. I'll admit, I got a bit reckless in some parts which is thanks to me getting the Fireball. This is one of those weapons that only allows a certain number of shots onscreen. Like the missile launcher.

    My problem with these is, if I miss then I'm screwed. The fireball can do amazing damage when they all hit and I'm hammering the shoot button. As can the missiles. But if you miss, then you've lost some firepower and possibly just written a death sentance.

    So far I've only come close to death once. I blame that on the "hover" physics though. If it was consistant then I wouldn't have been almost killed.

    I digress.

    Moving onto other waters, I'm almost done playing STALKER: Call of Pripyat. Once it's over I'll post what I think of it.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    Alas, I forgot to post the Afternoon update yesterday. All it would've been was this:

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R Call of Pripyat is almost the same as the other S.T.A.L.K.E.R games. The damage is realistic (One shot to the head on most things kills them), You need to eat every so often and the AI is actually pretty good (Most of the time).

    What's good:
    The AI got improved since Clear Sky. It doesn't just charge straight at you guns ablaze (or if it's a mutant, just charge) anymore. Each enemy has a specific way of working. Zombies still shamble towards you firing wildly whilst the Blind Dogs try and flank you and work like a pack. In Clear Sky they would form a line (Not joking) and charge at you.

    Another good thing is the upgrade system. Now you don't have to go hunt down USB Flash drives for a single upgrade. Now you just have to find a toolkit (Basic, Fine and Calibration) to give to a Technician and he'll work on the stuff. Each Technician also has specialties like in the other S.T.A.L.K.E.R games.

    Achievements. Some if not most of these actually add to the game. The Detective achievement gives you a small amount of medical supplies each day in your personnal locker in the Skadovsk, the first safe area in the whole game.

    Emissions are still in. I don't know if they did this in other S.T.A.L.K.E.R games, I never bothered to check, but in Call of Pripyat an Emission has a chance of causing Anomaly sites to spawn more Artifacts.

    What's not so good:

    Some of the enemies were altered a bit too much. Blind Dogs now take either one shotgun blast (Any type) or two at point blank range to kill. Pseudogiants were given the ability to constantly emit radiation. Poltergeists and Pyrogeists work off of movement, meaning they can both be rendered useless by playing "What's the Time Mr.Wolf" with them.

    Artifacts were downgraded aswell. In Clear Sky I remember the Bubble removing 6 rads a second. In Call of Pripyat it's 4. The Goldfish in Clear Sky added +20 Weight limit. In Call of Pripyat it's (I believe, never used it properly) +8 weight limit. Everything artifact wise was nerfed. I have no idea why. All the great ones in Clear sky are rare, they're still rare if not more rare in Call of Pripyat.

    The Factions aren't as "YEA" as they were in Clear Sky. Most likely due to the removal of the Faction Wars thing that was in Clear Sky. The factions don't seem to do much and their only purpose is jobs and equipment.

    In Clear Sky, each Faction had a nice thing to it. Duty specialised in heavy armour and Russian weapons (AKs mainly) and attachments for their guns. Freedom loved lightweight armour and sniper rifles. Bandits and Loners were almost the same, except Loners were better armed. This all showed in the Technician's skills and the shops.

    Now the only time you get the feel of the Factions is in Yanov, where Duty and Freedom reside. Even then you have to errand run like mad for either side to get their faction's stuff and unless you get the Friend of Duty / Friend of Freedom achievement, some stuff can't be got easilly. There's also little faction interaction outside of safe areas. Bandits and Loners clash frequently due to their numbers but I haven't seen Duty fight Freedom ONCE outside of missions.

    What's Bad:

    I, for one, hated the removal of Faction Wars. It gave the game depth because in Clear Sky, people would hate you for being part of a group. It also let you know about their background and let you work with some of them. It added alot of extra things to do.

    Some puzzles (Such as the Oasis) aren't clear AT ALL as to what you're meant to be doing. You have to try every single possibility before the game finally shows you what you're suppost to be doing.

    The Endgame is either really easy, or really hard. If you've got an Exoskeleton kitted out to the max with sprinting, and have a weapon with target identification aswell as 2 Koboloks and 2 Bubbles, you can waltz through most areas absolutely fine. Hell, I had a pistol from Skadovsk that was like a sniper rifle because I focused on accuracy and it can one-shot anything with a headshot regardless of armour. (Sometimes takes two against Exoskeletons).

    Achievments. I've already said this was great, why is it here? Well, there's an achievement called "The Hunter". It gives you small amounts of ammo in your Yanov personnal box. What's so bad about that? The ammo it gives you is AP 5.56x45 which is for NATO. Still don't see what's bad? It gives you two stacks of 30 rounds every day. That's 60 rounds every day and most NATO guns only have a 30 round magazine. By the time I tried to reach Pripyat, I had Strelok's SIG, upgraded completely (best accuracy it could have, best fire rate, best recoil reduction) and had it loaded with 2330 rounds of that AP ammo. I waltzed through the Pripyat area because I never ran out of ammo.

    All in All, as much as I love Call of Pripyat (and I do love it) there's some things which strike me as it could've been better. Don't get me wrong, it is an amazing game. Just feels slightly worse than Clear sky to me.[hr]
    What I'm listening to: Erectin' a River

    Having made up for my forgetfullness I proceeded to watch Falling Skies. I must say that the first half is boring, the last half is interesting. Nothing else.

    Going to record the next area in Cave Story (hopefully without any faults. I bet something will go wrong though) and there's a choice coming up. No-one can weigh in on it though. I know exactly what I need to clear the way to the hardest sections of the game.

    Also, vanilla ice cream is horrible.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    Afternoon post:

    Just watched Doctor Who. Jesus it was bad.



    Let's start off with the premise. Boy scared of stuff psychologically locks it into a wardrobe. Sounds solid.

    Except the mother of the kid can't have kids. The Father didn't remember that because of TECHNOBABBLE (Perception filter, making you see whatever it wants you to see) TECHNOBABBLE. The Kid is actually an alien that looks for foster parents of any race and changes them to what the parents want.

    Yea, that's convoluted.

    Gets better. The wardrobe is in the same room as the "kid". SMART MOVE PARENTS. What makes this *even* better is the fact that anything the kid fears is in a dolls house.

    So Hijinks start when the Doctor and friends end up inside the Dolls House because the "kid" is scared of them, and the foster father (mother is convieniantly working during the entire episode, save the start and finish). What're the main villains in this episode? Wooden dolls that can turn you into more wooden dolls. By placing their hand over your chest.

    How is this episode resolved? The "kid" opens the wardrobe himself, appears within the Dolls house and it's revealed the fears started and got worse because the foster parents were thinking of sending him away somewhere (never said where. It could be Disneyland for all the kid knows) so the father has to say he'll never abandon him.

    WHAT A LOAD OF TRIPE


    What I'm listening to: Some Scout Bonk song of I'm Blue

    So today has taught me that everything goes bad at some point. Cave Story I messed up alot in, hopefully that'll iron itself out. I intend on recording my practice run of the one time I'm allowed. First, I have to re-train myself in the use of the Booster 2.0

    Also, never eat Lasagne and Jacket Potatoe. It goes together horribly.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    Sorry about no morning update. Was busy playing Moo. Mainly so I can be of greater help in the Let's Play, but also because I can make it like Starship Troopers.

    So to cover for the morning update, Here's the WILT: X-COM 3: Kill them ALL

    I wont be able to do the usual Morning Afternoon updates for a while (Until weekends) but that just means the update will usually be longer.

    Actual afternoon update comes later.

    As of right now I'm busy laughing at the fact that a group of Mrrshan had 300+ fighters, 21+ destroyers, 14+ bombers and 5 Colony Ships geared for war, and my fleet of A Single HUGE ship, 6 large bomber types and 114 small varients of it just roflstomped it into the ground. And they were protecting the only planet they ever captured throughout the entire game.

    CAT SPLAT!

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    Well I'll start this off by saying that Mozilla Firefox is a massive bag of ****. I have never had so many problems with one program, than trying to play Moo : Adventures of the lethal abominable space cows (MALASC for short) and look at Dr. Killjoy's thread on Masters of Orion Are Constantly Fighting Space Birds and selling various different types of space narcotics to not-Sectoids in the hopes they don't try and kill us too.

    C++ Runtime library errors every time. Eventually I found that Internet Explorer gladly opens the page for me and thus, I had found my source of entertainment in the form of glorified bird killings to propogate the advancement of human ingenuity for the sole purpose of killing other things better. It was with my severe disappointment in the mental arithmatic and intellecutal thinkings of the birds that they decided to attack a planet that was of little or no use to such an advanced space fairing cuisine that was hunted down by one Colonel Sanders during the great chicken run of 3012

    This inexplicable display of atrocious use of tactics has opened up a viasge of the birdman's tactic. They will flock like their ascendants to a single point enticed by the hopes that this rock will be the blessing on which all birds shall rise through the stars and beyond to scream varying noises of adjustable volumes down upon those who can't hear them due to their Iphone 33s and the general ignorance of humankind towards outstandadly silly situations.

    My PC has also made funny noises recently, so if I suddenly disappear without trace for a while it's because my PC decided that it just can't take it anymore and electrocuted the Master HDD (And 500gb of data) in an effort for a holiday.

    RE: The Heresiarch's Seminary

    I've not been Firefox's biggest fan for quite some time. Firefox only remains popular because of its Apple-like movement it created in 2004. Firefox t-shirts, Firefox coasters, Firefox... hot air balloons? Yes, they had to resort to those measures to get their annoying and often (often due to the users rather than the developers) pompous messages across.

    Well, guess what? Internet Explorer recently scored higher in the Acid3 tests, yet, brainwashed fools continue to carry their torches and give anybody who uses IE a whole load of verbal abuse. I'd surely agree back in the days of IE6, and even now I'd probably recommend a better browser, but that's where it ends. It's the end user's choice. Speaking of better browsers, let's talk abut Chrome and Opera. Chrome is certainly growing in terms of its extension support. Both don't have many memory leak problems, yet Firefox has had more of these than I could possibly care to remember. Move on, people.

    The only thing Firefox has going for it, aside from the beliefs of its delusional fanbase, is some extensions that Chrome/Opera lack. Otherwise I just can't see the point Frankly, people should stop fapping to the fox, wake up, and smell the coffee. However, as with Apple loyalists, Firefox loyalists don't really bother me that much if they don't impose their views on other people. I only really talk about browsers when I enter a pre-existing argument. Right, that's my browser venting over.

    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"
