Re: Final Fantasy series

Just the other day I was playing FFXV and thought to myself, after losing a race to Gladio, "This doesn't matter in the end anyway". It backfired, because reminding myself of the bigger picture and especially the ending made everything I was doing feel like it didn't matter. The same day -...

Re: Issues with the search feature

Whoa. I didn't realize the search feature was so limited. If it's not sufficiently improved in the pending update that I never get around to, I'll investigate extensions/mods to make the search better. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Re: That's One Hell of an April Fool's Joke Guys!

One extra click - go to your user control panel and select "manage notifications", the bottom option on the first tab - that lists them. That wasn't one extra click -- it was two, and a scroll! ...But it worked, so, thanks. What do you mean I installed and maintain this software, that doe...

Re: That's One Hell of an April Fool's Joke Guys!

It does have a practical problem with it, though: I can't check my notifications, because the dropdown is now a dropup that extends off the page!

Re: Restructuring subforums suggestion

We took some time backstage to come up with a new forum structure incorporating suggestions from this topic. We present it here for public comment. Further suggestions are welcome. The proposed reorganization is as follows. The bolded names are categories, not actual boards, and the names preceded b...

Re: The Legend of Zelda series

My feelings on Breath of the Wild are... strongly mixed. Though I've played it for "240 hours or more" at this point, and am still playing and enjoying it, there's so much about it that irks me that I almost like it more as an object of study than as a game. To wit: * You get a huge number...

Re: Forum Wackiness

Been using win7 so far, bought a new laptop with win10 earlier this week. Fresh install of Chrome doesn't show the site properly. Namely, all the non-avatar images are missing: no icons, no background images, not even the banner at the top is shown. I looked into the pages' HTML code, delved into t...

It's doable, but don't expect it anytime soon. My time is extremely limited and we've got several higher priorities.

I recently signed up for me to be notified by e-mail when I receive a message. I did get a message, but there was no corresponding e-mail. I double checked my user control panel, which has the correct mark and I checked through the spam section of my e-mail, and there was nothing. What's going on? ...

That error shows up as a result of my custom URL-writing code not handling certain cases correctly. Looks like another such case has popped up.

Re: Final Fantasy series

I was able to get them to a point where I could be 99% hands off during battle. DPS doesn't matter as much to me so long as my party is for the most part self-sustaining. I tried to play the game that way but reached a point where it just didn't seem feasible, like I was fighting the game to get it...

Dispatches from the Video Game Industry

I work in video games. Working in video games, one learns things first-hand that fans on the outside looking in (including me, at one point) either don't know, might have big misconceptions about, or might have suspected but never really known for sure. Here are some of those things: * You know how ...
