Talk Amongst Yourselves

This is where Kotaku readers go to talk about the stuff we’re not already posting about. Think of it as the official unofficial Kotaku community forum.

    I was reflecting on something earlier today: I wonder if it would be possible to procedurally generate a JRPG? There's lots of games that are at least partially procedural, going back all the way to stuff like Rogue, but I wonder if you could actually generate a plot, characters, boss battles etc.

    Could be a fun project.

      Oh god how did this get up here i am not good with computers

        Wait you're no good with them and your job is at Microsoft D= WE'RE DOOMED!

          It's a meme. When I posted it appeared above the TAYbreak comments.

        At first I didn't understand this addendum. I do now and it makes me confus :s

    To all you instant coffee aficionados out there;
    1. you sicken me
    2. Riva is somewhat less undesirable than Blend 43
    3. This makes me sad in the pants
    4. ???
    5. With mouth

      Instant coffee is the sweat from Golgothan's ass crack.

        But I need my fix!
        Any crack is better than no crack. Right?

        But yeah, horrible. I'd still rather Blend43 over International Roast.

    Anyone here remember "How Bizarre?" by OMC ?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lJrkeMQhHc

      I actually found the parody Stole Ma' Car more memorable.

        "Greg! The Stop Sign!"?

          No, there was a parody of How Bizzare that was all over the place in New Zealand a long time ago.

            For some reason, my mind had merged those two songs into one... crazy.

            Google showed me the error of my ways :(

    So did anyone else put their hand up for Doc's copy of ME2?

    holy crud - this guy is amazing

    Still taybroken :(

    Aleph-Null: Instant coffee tastes like it was made by straining dirt through a sumo's used loincloth. I couldn't live without my grinder & espresso machine.

    I've been trying to give my retarded friend relationship advice for a couple of months. I've been giving sound advice (I think), but he's completely ignored it every time.
    She says he's moving too fast - I tell him to move slow - He moves fast
    She wants him to hold her handbag – I tell him to hold her handbag – He claims she’s trying to demean/feminise him, kicks up a fuss and instigates a lasting argument
    He misinterprets a message from her, which was totally cool and innocent and goes on a tirade with essay long text messages critiquing every facet of her life/personality.
    I tell him he’s the asshole in this situation – He’s genuinely surprised.
    Miraculously she still seems interested in being with him, but they need time apart – I tell him to keep quiet and “Don’t stir shit up” – 3 hours after telling him “Don’t stir shit up” he sends me a message “I stirred shit up” (He stirred it up, good and proper)
    I tell him he’s the asshole in this situation – He’s genuinely surprised.
    She, plain and simple, breaks up with him – I say he’s been dumped. Drop it. Radio silence. If he has to speak to her keep it minimal and, most importantly, keep it civil. “DON’T STIR SHIT UP” – He lasts 2 days. Then completely nukes any chance of them having anything slightly resembling friendship.

    Now it seems he’s told her friends that I’ve been giving him advice. However, he’s failed to mention that he hasn’t followed any of that advice.
    I was getting along quite well with her friends. Now they probably think I’m a massive wanker and have been advising this retard to act so terribly towards this poor girl.

      How could anyone not listen to you?

        Seriously. The only thing I can think of is that he's worried about being mind controlled by your voice and is doing the opposite of your suggestions to try and break free of whatever control you've got on him.

      Wow.. How the hell did he get with this girl in the first place who sounds like a decent individual...

        She is really cool. I thought she might be good for him and bring him down to Earth, but he's stubborn and remains out of orbit.
        I feel sorry for her.

          I would too. I have a mate a little similar to this, just his trait is making himself sound cooler and whatnot than he is. He had this awesome girl back in 08 and he lied to her about himself as often as he could, she was chatting with me one day after they broke up and was telling me some of stuff he told her, some of it was stuff like he was responsible for me liking this & that or whatever.

          I haven't seen him the same way since, he's still a good mate but damn. Also she was the best girlfriend he had, she didn't hate me like the others have! Least her & I are still friends which is cool.

      Awesome.

      ... I have no advice to offer here, sorry (probably best, anyway :P)

      Smack him upside the head with a rolled up newspaper.
      Sad to hear that, 'Flu.
      Hope things get better for you.

      Oh men.

        I know, right!?

          We all suck, wait am i the dude in your story because i totally haven't been following your advice.

          Honestly with the friend I'm surprised she didn't dump him sooner. But I don't want to go into an Oprah session of "How girls feeeeeelll".

          Unless it's like a Maury Povich show.

            You hurt me good lady the dude is just a over thinking dude face Mcgee.
            Also girls don't feel anything unless i tell them to. :P
            He cant be a complete dick or flu wouldnt be friends with him,

            I was amazed she coped with his first outburst so well. I told him it was a miracle that she still liked him after the way he treated her and that he should consider himself lucky.
            He must have taken that as a free pass to just treat her like crap. Maybe he thought he could continue to get away with it.

      Ditch your friend and hang out with the girls instead.
      If the guy treats the people he is supposed to care about like that then he's not worth knowing. Especially if he ignores your advice and is genuinely surprised when told he is in the wrong.
      It's only a matter of time before he turns on you or someone else you know.

        I've known this guy for over 20 years, so it's pretty difficult to just ditch him.
        But yeah, I'll distance myself and definitely won't be providing any advice in future.

          Smart move, guys like that get you into trouble pretty easily.

      is this is the confused hetrosexual/hermaphrodite guy?
      if so, inteligent decision making doesnt sound like his strong point.

    Shin Megami Tensei 4 coming to 3DS.

    I need to get me a 3DS.

      Yay, finally a chance for me to play a Shin Megami Tensei game, then give up after 5 minutes because I'm terrible!

    I AM THE ONE BUT THE KID IS NOT MY SON.

      I hope not. Explaining how she managed to get you pregnant would be pretty awkward.

    Just bought Disgaea 3 for my VITA during my lunch-break.

    I now have something new to play on the train ride to work! \o/

      That'll keep you going for quite some time. Sadly it's not as easy to power level as D4 :(

    Someone should really ask Ben etc to fix the taybreak issue. I don't know how. Maybe reject comments replying to a comment that's in the queue? Should just be an extra query to check.

      You have two hands. 2 eyes and a keyboard.

        I've never been able to locate the mystical 'report issue' button.

          You probably have adblock on, the adblock blocks the message box.

            It doesn't. I just sent a report in to Ben about the TAYbreak using that function. It's just well hidden because you have to scroll up so that you can see the Subscribe/Contact box (which doesn't follow you down the page with the most viewed/most commented box).

    So I almost dropped my job, then and there. Really struggling to see the point of it all currently, it's completely futile.
    Non-acted-upon incident reports are FUN.

      Man coming from the guy who had spend 90% of his time whiney about his job to the good folks of TAY. Find a change of scenery a different job and just move. No point in making yourself more angry and disappointed as where your life has gone.

        if I recall your fine example Rocketman, punching things seems to help as well?

        Rocketman gives good advice. It's totally what I'm doing.

          Then i will join you at the end of the year. Maybe probably eventually.

            Like me man, you need to get out of your town.

              I think I need to do exactly this. But I need a job to even start to be able to do that.

        It's the money that's keeping me here currently. I won't be on this kind of cash anywhere else. What I need currently, is to not get so damned invested in my work.
        The company I work for is tasked with educating the local Indigenous communities with tradeskills and furthering their employment opportunities, whilst upgrading and expanding the housing that is available. This is at the request and under the instruction of the traditional owners, mind you.

        Being called a "racist ****" isn't what I'd call playing nice.

        Perhaps you're right, Rocketman. I'll leave it for a bit to assess the situation, but as I stand now, I don't think I'm cut out for it.

          Your job sounds amazing imo. But that's just me. If you really need a change then you will do something about it. Kind of worked for me.

    @Jordi: was there some kind of meat planned for soonish?

      Definitely Maybe.

      The name of a romantic comedy.

      Anyway. Yeah sometime. I'm feeling a bit too distracted at the moment to plan but we'll rustle one up soonish.

        Rocketman will be in town for BATMANG Meat!

        We should probably start organising that in case any other out of towners want to come.

          I thought BATMANG meat was Melbourne?

            It is. Rocketman will be in Melbourne for it.

              NotR is meant to be the head of it but he does let people take over. I think it was pretty straightforward so we only have to send a bat signal

        Cool. I'm busy Friday (Vodka is involved) but have no major commitments (and no deadlines in June \o/ ) so I should be available. We've got a long weekend coming up too...

    @#35: out of interest, did that package arrive?

      YES IT DID! :D
      i mentioned it on twitter on monday night, but you must've missed that. sorry.

      anyway, THANK YOU AGAIN :D :D :D

        My twitter feed is basically unmanagable if I leave if for a few hours. 500+. Not reading them all. So yeah I probs missed it. Glad it arrived!

          He meant the package in his pants.

          Bye.

    Every time TAY breaks without my involvement, a little part of me dies inside.

      The worst part was... I knew it was borked but I commented anyway. I suppose that puts me on the nth-worst-person-on-the-site list now.

    Okay, am I the only person who had no idea this site existed: http://www.kotaku.com.br/

      Or this site: http://www.kotaku.jp/

        Patiently waiting for http://www.kotaku.com.kz/

      If you go onto the Kotaku US site, there are links to those sites there.

        We do here as well if you use the little drop down box with the flag in the top right, next to 'search'.

    I am now listening to Tism, thanks to you guys.

    MAN I LOVE THIS GROUP!!!

      Everyone else has had more sex than me :'(

      Also, cutest just-deflowered bunny EVAR.

        Let's form a company!

          C'mon baby, send it on down;
          Bend over Braunn and give me your brown.
          There's trouble brewing in the Warsaw Pact,
          So hurry up Eva and move your digestive tract.

        The only song of theirs I know, and a mantra of mine.

          sounds like you've got the Phillip Ruddock Blues

          If you can find it anywhere, definitely pick up a copy of "the white albun". Cost me $10 for a live show DVD, 2x CDs (I think?) in a purdy cardboard case.

            Watching this at the moment

    Hi all
    I'm flying to bangkok in a few weeks and want a handheld console (no tablets or ipads at this stage) to help me pass the flight time.

    Planning on buying new if possible (but not necessary), and either looking at a PSP or a 3DS/DS. Trying to be as stingy as possible too.

    With the PSP, I want to be able to hack it and play more games, although im not sure the most recent model is hackable.

    With the 3ds/ds the price difference is very small between them so im thinking a 3ds may as well be the go. Do the R4 cards work on these? anyone have any experience?

    Next question is battery life and how to extend it, as both will probably struggle for the 6 or so hours there and back. What extended battery solutions work the best for you?

    Thanks in advance for the help

        Get a 2nd hand hackable psp?

      I concur with Chuloopa, although not in all caps.

      If you can get a PSP-1000 it's more hackable (Not the E-1000, which is the modern wifi free one). I'd check http://www.reddit.com/r/psp for specific advice on models.

      Win one (or all) in a comp

      I know someone who did that...
