Though my computer must be shut down from storms, I will post to keep this in "recent posts" to be able to easily find it again!

Do you ever do similar weird strategies to keep things you might otherwise "lose" in computer tabs or similar?

It appears you have Netflix!

If so, have you seen the eleven episode Netflix original Voltron? If so, what did you think of it?

If not, it's pretty good - especially for how short it is!

But, uh, if you'd feel compelled to get the other Voltron stuff there is beyond that, I don't know that I'd recommend it* (Voltron is great, but I don't want you to get trapped into something you don't want to get too wrapped up in). That said, be aware that it's Season One and it leaves you wanting more - Season Two will be coming out next year, starting January.

* The Netflix series is entirely stand-alone. It's a re-imagining/ret-con from the ground up of the Voltron mythos.

Diego Valdez wrote:

I do have Netflix!

I have not seen the new Voltron. Voltron was a show I watched and enjoyed as a kid. I try not to watch shows I liked as a kid because I have rewatched a couple and they were terrible and I am afraid that will be the case for many more of them. I would rather just remember them as shows I enjoyed than realize they are awful.

If it's a stand alone reboot I may watch it though.

So! Just so you're aware, Season 2 has come out!

It is not really a cliffhanger - there are mysteries, and there is still definitely a need for Voltron, but, I feel, the "main" conflict has been (sort of) resolved (well, kind of).

Super Vague but still Kinda Big Spoiler!:
The bad guys are totally still bad and another villainous figure is coming, but Voltron has proven itself, the heroes have, for all intents and purposes, "won" the fight against the big bad (to an extent), and, despite the loss of <someone(s)>, the bad guys must tend to their own losses, as well.

... all of which makes a good stopping point, if you want to!

(Though I'll probably continue to follow it for Season 3, at least, as it's rather good.)

Your game sounds fun!

I think without Gummi Bears we would never have got Duck Tales and the other shows. I think you're right about Gargoyles, I think it owes its existance more to B:TAS than to the other Disney shows.

I highly recommend trying out the Lifesavers gummies, they are really good!

Psychic is still beyond my level. CS reps don't get it until the upper levels.

I usually leave the forums set to 'Focus' so all I see when I log in are posts I have read or commented in. I defocus it for the CS forums when I do those, but usually it is set to focus. If I want to see what other threads are going on I will defocus the boards, go through and open threads I'm interested in, and then focus it again until the next time I want to browse everything.

I added Voltron to my Netflix queue, but haven't started watching it. I may this week if I get a chance.

Neat! I never knew that was a thing! (I've heard of "Focusing" and might have seen a few things, but I've never used it). Sounds pretty cool, though.

I hope you like it! I will hedge by saying it's not the most amazing show I've ever seen (Avatar: the Last Airbender, Gargoyles, Batman: the Animated Series, and Gravity Falls are much better, by way of example; and I even enjoyed things like Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated a bit more, but all of those require significant investment, and only Scooby-Doo: Mystery Incorporated is on Netflix... so.

But! I really enjoyed it, the battles were pretty great, the story intriguing, and I liked how... human (and in many ways "not very good at this") the paladins and princess are. So I hope it's great~!

I first discovered him through the TED talks, though I don't have links to those, and it's pretty great. I recommend the two (really, three, but this list overlaps with two) TED versions, if you get the chance! Better timing, I think, but very different feel. :D

Diego: have you ever played d20Modern, or its variants?

(d20Past/d20Future/Urban Arcana/etc.)

I think you may enjoy d20Past, though I found the information in the Age of Adventure sub-setting to be lacking... if only because there wasn't nearly enough!

(Makes sense, though - it was one of three subsetings in that book. I would just have loved an entire setting book.)

What, of the three ages, would you enjoy playing in?

What about you, Thurston?

Also: Smash Brothers character: Tetra/WW Zelda; go from swift-movement no-range melee who Super-Smash summons a ship with catepult (Tetra); to a slow-moving, ranged character (she uses a bow!) with defensive magic of some kind (and a sleeping taunt? I dunno...).

Yes? No? Concept workshop?

I have not played any of them. One of my good friends loooooves D20 Modern though and talks about it all the time. It sounds interesting. I struggle a bit to get into roleplaying in a modern setting, so I never took much of a look at it. The closest I have played to that is Spycraft.

Future and past I think are the ones I would be most interested in. Probably future more than past.

Hmm, I like the idea of a slow moving ranged character that has some mobility magics. A teleport you can do when you are being attacked by melee characters that does a small amount of damage to them (but it is a set distance teleport so be careful not to teleport off a cliff!

Hey, no problem. I'm fine when people don't enjoy the same things I do - that's just different tastes in action. :)

That said, you might want to look up Count Your Sheep, Friendship is Dragons, or Cucumber Quest - I've read the former two, and only sometimes seen the last, but by all counts, they fall under "cutesy, funny" categories.

That said, I'd be interested in what Diego recommends!

Also: Diego, have you read any of those three comics? Did you like any of them?

Unrelated: have you seen either The Office or Parks and Rec?

Have you seen the Kung Fu Panda or How to Train Your Dragon series?

If so, what do you think?

Paizo Employee Customer Service Representative

Hmm, I don't really read webcomics. So I don't have many recommends. I do on occasion read Penny Arcade, which I have enjoyed. They once had a strip about books that I thought was pretty hilarious, so I printed it out and taped it above the time clock at the book store. I'm also really fond of Retail (probably because of my many years in retail), though I mostly used to read it in the newspaper.

Paizo Employee Customer Service Representative

I have not read any of those comics, but I will take a look at them. I love both Parks and Recreation and the Office!

I am just about done with the first season of Voltron. I have been enjoying it. I really like Shay (sp?) the Balmeran and was hoping she would become a regular part of the cast.

I have not seen Kung Fu Panda or How to Train Your Dragon. I keep meaning to and just never get to them. I got Kung Fu Panda 3 on Amazon Prime a while back for some reason, so I really need to watch the first 2.

Rejoice! I finally have gummi lifesavers!

... but I've opened the sour ones (so good!) and those bags are huge, so it'll be a while until I taste the "regular" kind...

Oh, wait, a question... um... uh... "I know, right?!"

(That'll work, won't it?)

I'm enjoying The Office (and lllluuuuuurrrrrrrrvvvvve Parks and Rec).

I wanted Shay and the Balmeran to become party members, too!

Oh, man, you really should watch both the Kung Fu Panda series and the How to Train Your Dragon series.

The names are absolutely terrible, at least, they aren't anything to inspire confidence, but the films themselves are, to my mind, phenomenal all-'round.

Since we're on Dreamworks... Megamind? Seen it? Not? Thoughts?

Haha! I'm glad you liked the gummies! I could eat the Lifesavers gummies until I burst and die (I try not to do that)!

I have not seen Megamind either (I'm really dropping the ball with my movie watching), but I have heard it is good and very funny.

Please don't burst and die! That would suck!

Hahah! Yeah, it's great - and don't worry about it. It's easy to fall behind on all that: I've still yet to see Civil War, among other films.

Also, Dreamworks has a shocking ability to badly name good films, leaving it potentially looking less interesting than it is.

("Bee Movie" is not a good film. It's not horrid, it's just... dull and a little... I don't know. It just way to hard to anthropomophize bees, while not actually anthropomorphizing bees, which makes the aesop more than a little fractured and confused.)

Also, how's gaming going, recently; either Table Top or Computer/Video variety (or something else)?

Paizo Employee Customer Service Representative

I managed not to explode and die!

Gaming is down to just my Momday night game and another office game that is on either Tuesdays or Thursdays depending on what everyone can make. Outside of that I have been playing through Final Fantasy XV. I'm almost done with it. Wrapping up side quests and hunts before heading in to the final encounter. I'll be picking up Horizon: Zero Dawn tomorrow, but I don't know if I'll dive into it or do another play through of the Mass Effect games before diving into Mass Effect Andromeda when that releases in a few weeks.

I am fond of dreamworks and pixar and cartoons. Waiting eagerly for the next The incredibles and Despicable Me to come out.

I don't think I would pick up Final Fantasy XV. Firstly no time secondly, no X-box, PS 4, thirdly, not so fond of real-time action since I have slow reaction time. And also, clumsy once you get right down to it.

Diego, how does your typical work day go?

Paizo Employee Customer Service Representative

1 person marked this as a favorite.

I've seen, and loved, most Pixar movies. I've seen some Dreamworks ones but there are a lot I haven't (I did really like The Incredibles).

As of last night I have logged a terrifying 73 hours in FFXV... I am not really good at the combat either, the block/parry mechanic I have mostly given up using because I never manage to do it correctly.

My normal day involves mostly responding to emails, and answering phones. I also respond to posts on the customer service forums, though typically only one of us does that each day, so it's not an everyday thing for me. A few times a day I head down to the warehouse to drop off orders I have fixed/adjusted/etc or to collect orders the warehouse was having trouble with so I can fix them or contact the customer. I also spend some time talking with our webstore person about products that are on outstanding orders. When there are returns to process I do that also. There are a few other processes and things I do as well, like looking for old stuck orders and contacting the people who placed them to see if they still want them sent and so on. I'll eat lunch at noon or 1. Usually that is just eating at my desk and browsing Facebook and other internet stuff, but sometimes I gather with some other coworkers and go out to lunch. Every once in a while I just go home for lunch (I live very close to the office). So nothing super exciting, but it keeps me busy. I have really awesome coworkers which makes my job and my day very pleasant.

That's not really bad, puns are punny. I thought it would be the whole day of answering calls/emails. It seems to consist quite a bit of admin stuff as well.

I keep trying to learn how to pun better but I'm not that good at it.

Are the emails nice or have you gotten really nasty ones?

I think my coworkers like making puns because they like watching me cringe. Katina cackles everytime she makes one and I groan in pain. But I think they are rubbing off on me because twice this week they have accused me of making a pun. I would never do that on purpose though!

Most of the emails are pleasant. It's a lot like any other customer service/retail/service industry position in that the vast majority of the folks you interact with over the day are pleasant, but those 2 or 3 really nasty ones manage to live in your head all day. In many years of retail I have improved with letting the bad ones go and focusing on the good ones, though I'd be lying if I said the bad ones don't still own more real estate in my head than I want.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber Subscriber

So, if you're ever doing the wrong thing, your friends know how to properly punish you? Good to know...

Hey: do you guys have a formal set of rules for such punitive measures, or is it a looser kind of spur of the moment "2% inspiration, 98% punspiration" kind of thing?

(Sorry! ...but only a little.)

Also!

How is FF15? I've heard it referred to as a "flawed masterpiece" and I'm curious as to what, exactly, that means. Also, did you play Last Story, or FF 12 or FF 13? I think Ove asked, but I've forgotten and am on the phone...

There aren't any rules I am aware of. Mostly how it works is Katina's mouth opens and puns just fly out of it. Everyone else is pretty quick with them too.

I really enjoy most of FFXV. I suspect the complaints people have are all with the endgame. That's the weak part for me. Most of the game is a group of dudes out on a car trip. You drive around, do quests, go camping, put gas in your car, etc. Its light and a lot of fun. Then you get into the endgame part and it is a radical change from what you've been doing, and the writing at that point struggles. They could have dropped the entire endgame sequence and the game would have been perfect, or possibly made it fit better into the style of the rest of the game. There is a mechanic that allows you to go back in time to before you started the point of no return endgame stuff and when I got access to that my comment to my roommate was, "Awesome! Now I can go back to the part of the game I care about!" Which I think sums it up pretty well.

That makes sense. To be fair, FF4 receives near-continuous praise, and the end of the game was kind of weak and felt tacked-on, too.

Incidentally: did you ever watch the Super Mario Bros. Super Show! when you were younger?

It's on Netflix, but sadly (or maybe not-so-sadly? I don't know - I'm conflicted on this) neither the Legend of Zelda, nor the Captain N: Gamemaster.

Did you see either of those?

What are your memories of them?

Oops, I meant to answer your other questions in the last post too. Yes, I have played all of the numbered Final Fantasy games except for 14. Well I did play a tiny bit of 14 but didn't really get into it. I'm not very keen on MMOs (although I did play the crap out of 11). I really enjoyed 12. For 13 I was more ambivalent about. I have 13-2 and Lightning Returns but haven't even put the disks in my Playstation if that gives some idea to how I feel about 13. I am not familiar with Last Story at all (just had to Google it). I will have to read more about it when I go home.

I really enjoyed 4, and the Lost Years for it. But you're right, I was less enthusiastic about the moon stuff than the rest of the game.

I watched the Nintendo Power Hour every day after school when it was airing. I remember very little of it though so it probably didn't make much of an impact. I do remember it having live action stuff bookending the animated shows. I just had to Google Captain N because I don't recall that name at all. There are definitely pictures that look familiar so I may have seen it, but I am still not sure I ever watched it.

Also: have you seen Miraculous Ladybug, and if not, what kind of Akuma Super Villain are you to make you hate all that is good?

I'm just joking around with you: I only recently shed my own evil Akuma recently, myself...

(Seriously, though, the first episode was hard to watch, just because it was so very frenetic - there was never really a still moment on-screen. But it hits its groove, and I love the series, by now, as does my wife. Available on Netflix!)

Similarly, have you ever seen Arakawa Under the Bridge? Good stuff - really weird, but that's kind of the point. Addictive, but the incredibly long (total of 20 minutes+) and slow-to-load ads on Crunchy Roll made it really hard to watch. I was recently given a new (seemingly legal and safe?) site that also streams it, but it seems to load more smoothly and easily, so that's a big bonus.

The site (as linked to me by a fellow FaWtL poster).
(It's "fmovies.se" - you should definitely check it out in something that has a firewall before clicking on it, as my browser does tell me it's "secure" but McAfee hasn't rated it, so... caution is probably best. I can make no claims other than that; I don't actually know the legalities, though they claim to have a copyright, twitter, and facebook: seems hard to hide illegal activity with that much stuff, but I'unno, and I'm not visiting them.)

Anyway, here's hoping you're doing well!

I didn't know that it was that time!

I enjoyed the links. Thank you for sharing them. On the facts one I knew most of the facts, but there were a few that I didn't.

I've played Tactics Ogre, Jeanne D'Arc, and Disgaea. I really liked Tactics Ogre and Jeanne D'Arc and recommend both! I know Disgaea has a huge fanbase but it wasn't for me. I have never been super keen on most anime and I wonder, since it leans very heavily in that direction, if that was why I struggled to get into it. Maybe not though because FFT, Tactics Ogre, and Jeanne D'Arc all rely on a lot of anime tropes and themes as well.

I guess saying I am not keen on anime is wrong. There are some I really like and others I really don't. I guess it's the style that I perceive as 'silly' that I tend not to like, and that's what Disgaea falls in to. For instance I really enjoy things like Cowboy Bebob, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Record of the Lodoss War, and so on.

Haha! I have not seen Miraculous Ladybug, I have always enjoyed Street Fighter though! I also haven't seen Arakawa Under the Bridge. I'm afraid I am likely going to be disappointing when it comes to the 'Have you seen...?' questions.

Yeah, that was me. It was very interesting, it was mostly a few things in the code (specifically things like the scream telling you the gender or other similar stuff I just didn't notice or read the code enough to know), but most of it was pretty straight well known.

Actually, I've since seen the video, and I agree about TO and JDA!

I've not played Disgaea enough to comment, but I totally get the same impression that you give, now, and may well come to the same conclusions.

Jean' was pretty great to start with, but, unfortunately, I couldn't get too far, because I started having headaches on the small screen when I was playing it a while back. Tactics Ogre was excellent, but I never actually owned it (no one ever kept it in stock, except for a few scalpers who wanted way too much money for it), so I never finished it, alas.

I might comment on a few others, but I'm running out of time right now, sooooo... on to the rest of the stuff that I've already typed, but then I went back to add more here before posting!

Street Fighter is awesome! (And it's awesome that I totally hadn't thought of him. Akuma as a concept is a "thing" in Miraculous'... DE-EVIL-IIIIIIZE~!)

I'd actually never heard of Arakawa' until quite recently, and it is a bit of a weird series, but most of that is not built around the slapstick over-the-top anime tropes, but more, "These are really weird people, and are acknowledged as such in the anime itself. They're basically a bunch of weirdos who are (purposefully) living under a bridge, and the story (so far) is about an exceptionally proud (and successful) young man from a wealthy family slowly becoming integrated into their weird society.

Miraculous' is... well, it's excellent. It's a French-made animated series that I'd heard of before, but dismissed out-of-hand. 'Dat opening, tho.

As I noted, it's basically a really-well-made kids cartoon (and the frenetic animation was difficult to watch the first episode, but has become endearing since), but I think that stems from its production. Originally, it seems it was made for an older audience, but failed to gain any traction. Then it was retooled as a kids' series, and suddenly it's awesome. And that, I think, is a secret to why it's so good: it's a kids series originally made with older audiences in mind. One thing I'll tell you: it's entirely out of chronological order, and until the end of the series you have no idea how either 'Ladybug or Chat ended up their super hero selves - I haven't gotten there, yet, but I am led to understand that is the case. In any event, the chronology is semi-intentionally all over the place, and even fans (no matter their country of origin - each country has a still-out-of-chronological-but-different-from-other-countries'-order) struggle to piece it all together, at present (there are actual dates that crop up occasionally in the series, and the characters have arcs and progression in their relationship over the roughly four-to-five months the stories take place, which allow for a solid guess... but I've never found anything definitive, and one probable-animation-error throws this into a bit of, 'bwuh?' as well.

Anyway, this one and/or this one are the best chronological order (spoilers follow immediately after the timeline picture) that I've seen, but debate and guesswork (spoilers in both and links to further discussion).

That's probably way more information than you want, but... that's just because I'm excited about it.

I think Tactics Orge, and for sure Jeanne D'Arc are available as downloads from the Playstation store. So if you have a PSTV, Vita, or Vue you should be able to get it (you can also download them on a PS3 or PS4 but I am not sure if they are playable on those as some games like FFT are portable only so won't install on a PS3 or PS4).

So if you have a PSTV, Vita, or Vue you should be able to get it (you can also download them on a PS3 or PS4 but I am not sure if they are playable on those as some games like FFT are portable only so won't install on a PS3 or PS4).

Awesome!

... I, uh... I lack anything after PS2, Sony-wise, though.
(It's the reason I've never completed Shadow of the Colossus, despite my fierce love for that game, and that I've never played FF12 or FF15, though I'd truly love to, some day. Similarly, it's the reason I don't own The Last Guardian. Sigh. Some day, TL. Some day. :D)

((I have a Wii because it was a gift from the family. I have a very old PlayStation, a SNES, a Game Cube, and an N64 in boxes. Also an old PSP, which was a gift to my dad from a friend of his who'd heard he liked video games a long time back; my dad was entirely uninterested in such portable things, and turned it over to me, instead, along with some games he found for me that he thought I'd like.))

Glad you liked them! The Welches ones are really good too (I take the small pouches of them to PaizoCon as snacks and to share with folks at the PSF/ACG tables I sit at), but I think the Lifesavers ones are the best!
