>>6057 This was an amazing read. I'd heard of Moldbug before, and when I read a summary of his views, I found myself agreeing with pretty much all points. But this particular write-up really nails it. I've long had the vague feeling that something was drastically wrong with our economy and society as we know it, and this captures the whole mess with perfect clarity. It also perfectly explains the SJW takeover of entire industries, which is zombie business to a T. Definitely need to delve further in.

>>1349 There's a story in the book about someone who was 70-80 ish and looked 40 after doing all the rites for a prolonged period. I've been doing the rites to the best of my ability for about 3 months, one can do each one up to 21 times per day (so it says in the book) I've been doing 4 or 5 of the rites 6 times every day for 2 months (I started off doing each 1 to 3 times per day and then added to that) I've been doing them at night before going to bed, could also do them in the morning I suppose. For me it may be difficult to tell the difference right now, since I'm not too old and have only been doing them for the past few months, but I think it be worth it if it helps me retain youth in the long run, since these rites (exercises) are not that hard to do for the most part. There are 6 in total, the 6th rite is only for those who go all in and stay dedicated.

>>1349 >I can respect that, anything that pokes and enrages your average redditor can't be that bad. So I take it their attitude is more of a way of keeping their subforum quality up and avoid stupid newfags. There was an incident a little while ago where Redditards were raging over the old BO calling a black student of his "chocolate," completely in denial of the fact that it's a compliment. More recently someone dug up an old post he made about his intent to feature photos of attractive female volunteers who'd gotten their shit together, and of course the board's eunuch brigade was immediately mobilized. >Noticed that as well. I've read up to chapter 6, I've managed to make out some techniques to use in obtaining what you desire: >The writing is a little unclear and a bit repetitive, might have gotten something wrong. I agree, and the subreddit mods get mad about points like these. For me, it's more of a prelude to the index training than anything else. As central as his teachings are to the board, naming the board after Joseph Murphy is almost misleading given how much they build on his ideas and even contradicts some of what he said. I'm personally still in the beginner mode as far as training goes, but I seem to be at the point now where I can go into the alpha state in a minute or two and seem to be getting the hang of self-hypnosis after a long and frustrating period of trial and error. I thought I might have aphantasia, but with regular practice I seem to be able to visualize effectively enough now. The goal is just working up the feeling that you already have what you want, so straining yourself to picture your thoughts in lifelike detail isn't at all necessary. The talk about "feeling" really threw me off, since the word sounds like it's talking about emotion. But positive emotions are an effect rather than a cause, so once you do the training right and consistently reprogram your subconscious mind positive emotions will start to follow. >>1351 You people get more and more insufferable by the day. >>1352 Only if she's 3D.
>>1353 >There was an incident a little while ago where Redditards were raging over the old BO calling a black student of his "chocolate," completely in denial of the fact that it's a compliment. How can redditors be this tone deaf? Well, shouldn't expect much from internet addicts on a forum populated mostly by big bazinga fans. So the positive feelings are a consequence, not the cause for alteration. Good, no need to strain myself trying to force an emotion. I agree with you on "working up the feeling that you already have what you want", that's what most teachers seem to agree on. If the subconscious agrees on having something, reality will alter in such a way as to make it so. I couldn't find any techniques on entering alpha state in PoSM. Did read of someone once telling how Dispenza discusses entering such states in his books, and similarly there is jhana state in buddhism, I'm currently reading "Knowing and Seeing" to learn more about it. Found an anon back 8/2chan talking how important detachment is for manifestation, curiously, the screencap from fringe here >>854 also mentions detachment —along with presence and chi— being necessary for manifestation. >>1350 >There's a story in the book about someone who was 70-80 ish and looked 40 after doing all the rites for a prolonged period.

>>11599 One thing I enjoy doing is casually mentioning something from the Bible in the middle or at the end of an otherwise normal post on boards you wouldn't expect to see it. Not forcing the topic or preaching really , just reminding people of God or of His judgements or something from the Bible. >>11603 1 Corinthians 3, God gives the increase and you won't see it most of the time, especially with anonymous internet sites. Even street preachers rarely see it.
>>11619 >What the fuck is that supposed to mean? It's an extremely well known and easily googleable problem that is mostly brought up by people baiting for (You)s. Discussion is always fun, but if you just want someone to convince you that Epicurus didn't disprove that God is either not omnipotent or not good there's no reason to make a thread.
>>11609 Weird to green text my post and then say something unrelated afterwards. You could have just said your random nonsense without including my post. It's the best one can do is give evidence for the obvious truth and then WHAM hit them in the head with the Bible. People need to be able to read Matthew while trusting it as fact rather than trying "O what philosophical intellectual things are I to ponder on?" It's not about philosophy. The Bible is very simple, a series of real events that convey an equally simple meaning. People stumble on this ironically enough by refusing to accept people wrote down what they knew and saw rather than wrote down some elaborate stories about how to philosophically plunder through meaningless life. Toga wearing Aristole wannabes is logically on the rise as we reenter the age of the Greeks and Romans paganism. The stories of old had become myth to be pondered over. Completely takes over every 2000 years from Noah to Jesus to now. Evidence and then get them to read the New Testament. If people don't want Jesus well that's up to them but if people are determined to go to Hell be sure only over your dead body. A guide to Bible thumping be sure no useless talk comes from the pagans mouth, if he asks about free will, *thump*. If he prattles on about God being a meanie head, *thump* *thump* see now that one's a double thump. Do not let them waste too much time veering off in pointless directions avoiding the facts. The most important thing any human can learn is he is not good enough for Heaven and never will be and it is his fault. Without this understanding they cannot come to God. This has been a staple since the ancient times of Israel. One must understand he needs to just say he is sorry and must change, drastically. This conveyed over internet text, nonsense. Foolishness, I am a fool for Jesus I love him, prideful people will not submit and it's easy to be a toga wearer online and hide your nakedness and your shame. Videos are great. A good thumping and information. "what about love?" yes as you can online, do.
>>11638 >It's an extremely well known and easily googleable problem There's literally no extant address to the question of 'why was man not made perfect' that irenaeus stumbles over in against heresies (more exactly phrased, the question should be "why is there anything apart from god"). Feel free to give me a link to whatever or drop a title you'd want me to read. The most recent and 'strongest' address I've seen is leibniz saying ~that infinity+1>infinity which directly responds to the later (but is incoherent) and indirectly to the former. >Epicurus didn't disprove that God is either not omnipotent or not good This has nothing to do with the fact that sin is incoherent as a concept. Nor is it a comment on an omniscient creator - epicurus rejects the concept of a god of acts. >Discussion is always fun Were you here in the last month when the theodicee thread was left for dead with no responses despite a heathen and an apostate both asking for an explanation?

Good SW Content Thread. Stormtrooper 07/02/2021 (Fri) 23:44:04 No.4692 [Reply]
This is a thread for all good Star Wars content online including webms, memes, image marcos, videos, 3D models, so on and so forth. I am mainly focusing on video content with my post as most Star Wars content online is terrible. All those monotone channels that spend 10 minutes going over the same comic 4-5 times to answer a question that can be answered in a minute or two at most. "What did Anakin Skywalker think of the tax rate" type stuff. So lets post content that is actually worthwhile. When it comes to edit of the movies Nerd Vault might be the best channel online. An example of a video of his would be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tztJLKxSMg Nearly every force ghost of x talks to y scenario has been done by them. They are pretty underrated to be honest. This guy https://www.youtube.com/c/WilkinsAnimations/videos is animating the Dark Empire story in parts. He has done 2 episodes so far and it is pretty good. Better than anything Disney is doing at least. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJ3rGAkW6LD-G9Zup374xQg/videos Anyone got other content to share. (This isnt supposed to be redundant with the webm threads or any meme threads. Its supposed to have a broader scope and focus on hidden SW gems. More high quality stuff as opposed to shitposts).

Iconoclasm Thread Anonymous 01/21/2022 (Fri) 08:34:13 No.3034 [Reply] [Last]
Daily reminder that icons and statues in churches are idols and no amount of linguistic pilpuling about ‘veneration’ will change this fact. God is extremely clear in what He commands: >Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them And yet when one goes into an Orthodox Church, this is exactly what one sees. Lines of people going in and bowing before icons of saints and Mary, crossing themselves and kissing the icons. The deacons go about and wave incense before the icons of the saints, Mary and Jesus. The same goes for Catholics. I tried to fall for the so-called ‘apostolic’ church meme for a while, but to see them kiss and worship the images of saints rang major alarm bells in my head, no matter how many copes I read from apologists online. Iconolatry is idolatry, and idolatry will lead you to the hellfire. Protestantism has flaws, but at least ones who are consistent in reading Scripture can realize that nothing but God is due worship and veneration, and that the praying to the saints and Mary is a pagan innovation. Faith in Christ and gathering in His name is enough. Do not be led astray by idol-venerators and other crypto-pagans.

I don't have a patron saint because I don't go to the kind of church where people have those but the patron saint of my church is St George whose day it was recently. That said I have a strange fascination with St Lucy virgin and martyr. There are a lot of saints who were martyrs but she stands out to me for some reason. Her refusal to compromise her faith during torture, including her eyes being put out, is reassuring in these days.
When I converted to Orthodoxy, I selected Saint Jerome/Hieronymus as my patron Saint for the sole reason that he wrote the Latin Vulgate and my ancestry is primarily Catholic (but all of my immediate family are protestants). Later I found out that the name 'Jerome' is sometimes shortened to 'Jerry' which is only one letter different from my birth name. Almost spooky how that worked out.

>>11137 We do not worship Mary. Mary is a creature just as you and me are. We give honor to those to whom honor is due, just as a man honors the servants of a king on account of their relationship and service given to the king. The same is true with the faithful servants of the King of Kings. Mary is truly a unique and blessed individual, the Mother of God. May we all have the faith that Mary did, when approached by an angel, accepted Christ into her life very literally, and said “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” Just as Daniel bowed before an angel, and just as Abraham bowed before the Hittites who gave him the tomb to bury his wife, so Christians show respect and honor to those associated with the Lord without worshiping them and slipping into idolatry.
>>11223 You claim you don't worship Mary, yet you exalt her above God by calling her the Mother of God and she was never given this title in the Bible. Endless mental gymnastics. Even your pic shows mary as greater than Jesus.

I imagine many of you are familiar with being on different chans, so chances are you were racist for a time, and perhaps still are, but to those ones that moved past racism, how did you do so? I have overcome 'white pride' as that was an easy one to reconcile with the Lord (gay pride, trans pride, black pride, white pride; it's all pride and thus a sin) But I've found /pol/ to be very alluring in its racism, and in many ways it's hard to refute what's in front of your eyes, albeit a lot of the information is sensationalised at the very least if not untrue. I want to love more, I don't want hate needlessly, I hate what is immoral, unjust, spiteful, anything that goes against God; but I want to love like Jesus loved, but being racist still makes a lot of sense to me.

I spotted this "Wife Quest" on the Playstation store recently. It seems to be a game where monstergirls steal your husband without even the decency to let you watch, and so need to be punished. Looks super-cute although the naughtiness doesn't go beyond some teasing sprites and the quest's conclusion doesn't go where we'd want it to (at least, I think it doesn't).

>>3453 Anon I stole that first pic from the yuri board with the intent to use it in my next post and you stole it first! Unfair! >Did the conflict arise from snitting over the game itself, or were there pre-existing issues that bubbled to the surface thanks to everyone being around the table? It was game related, and I did my best to mediate but in the end, I think the group was just too big to hold together, it was a 10 person group when most campaigns are balanced for 4-5. Everyone wanted to do something different and I managed to get them to do similar stuff some of the time but eventually things started pulling apart. The varying motivations of the difference player characters led to them having beef with each other which then spilled over into the real world and that just wasn’t fun. I also was really disappointed in myself because of one particular case where I picked up that the only other girl in the party wanted to do something but I hadn’t written anything to even begin to explore that as a possibility (she’d have been blinked to another part of the continent, away from everyone else in the party) so I just rushed through my description in a way that left no time for objections, and she was visibly crestfallen. She didn’t seem upset with me as much as she seemed upset with the other players, but I knowingly let her down. We only had a few more sessions after that, I never really got to make it up to her. >Please don't allow bad tabletop experiences to knock you off it I really do think it’s for the best. I’m ok at the improv needed to make individual sessions fun, but I struggle to write sweeping stories that are engaging in the long term. It’s also just so much pressure having to be part of a group and responsible for everyone else’s fun. Even as a player, if I decide I’m not up to playing on a given day I’m letting other people down and might even lead to the session being canceled. If I want to play a different video game tonight, or read a book, or go for a walk, then there’s nothing stopping me and I won’t let anyone down. It was a fun exercise, and I’m not definitively writing it off, I just won’t seek it out and if I never play again then that is fine by me. >find another way to express it. Which is what we're doing here, I suppose. I used to go back to the old campaign notes for the Skyrim campaign to tweak things and write characters, it was a fun thing to do on the commute to work. I lost all those updated files a few years ago when I lost the flashdrive they were on so I just have the backups now and I just haven’t felt compelled to try to re-create the work. I keep telling myself I’ll find the drive someday, but I know I won’t. It’s long gone now. >This whole thread's cringe anyway: Look at all these fuckin' words. Definitely thought you were going to point out how we’re all cucks and that’s pretty cringe. And I totally embrace the cringe, it’s just who I am!

>>3456 >it was a 10 person group !!! How the hell did that work? By all accounts that's a player count where you start needing assistant GMs, subparties, and pretty meticulous planning. >The varying motivations of the difference player characters led to them having beef with each other which then spilled over into the real world and that just wasn’t fun. Oh dear. It sounds absurd on the surface, but then one remembers that the players would perceive each other as needlessly getting in the way of the fun. If that was happening, I can see why the group disbanded. I certainly wouldn't want to play with that kind of emotional backdrop making everything awkward. Couldn't be worse than the time an 8ch/tg/ anon had a divorce kick off at their table, at least. >I also was really disappointed in myself because of one particular case where I picked up that the only other girl in the party wanted to do something but I hadn’t written anything to even begin to explore that as a possibility (she’d have been blinked to another part of the continent, away from everyone else in the party) so I just rushed through my description in a way that left no time for objections, and she was visibly crestfallen. Of course, I don't know the actual details of how you ran things for them, but was it expected that you should have been able to accommodate a character suddenly popping away, solo, to another continent? Seems reasonable to shut it down, even if she thought it would have been fun. That sounds to me like the kind of thing that pulls GM time away from everyone else without entertaining them and requires the GM to put in a lot of unexpected extra work, and thus would be quite inconsiderate for a player to want to do. Still, it's never a happy thing to let someone down. >I’ve heard this before but from the other way, if they can’t tell you why it should be kept then it should be scrapped. That is the more common line, yes, whether expressed as the monkeys-and-ladders clipart comic, or thus: “Tradition is the democracy of the dead. It means giving a vote to the most obscure of all classes: our ancestors.” It's usual in such stories to present tradition as senseless worship of ashes, as something terribly crippling and binding that must be regarded with great suspicion if we are to free ourselves, or else as a dead but comfortable thing that encourages laziness of thought that leads to decay. The problem I have with this is that it presents itself as brave and exploratory thinking while actually being quite a small and limited perspective. I don't understand it, and it's getting in my way, so it has to go! Sometimes, by accident, it's correct—especially when the "tradition" is not tradition at all but convention—but often it ends up irreparably breaking and erasing terribly important links to deep systems that developed organically over a very long time, perfectly fit to solve problems that most have long forgotten. Problems which, given the opportunity, are only too happy to make a patient but powerful return. As a pocket example of the principle, take cassava roots. Very important food, vital calories for those cultures who relied and still rely on them. One catch: They're poisonous. Hydrogen cyanide. To make cassava safe requires an intense and tedious multi-day, multi-step process involving repeated cycles of grating, soaking, fermentation, drying, and grinding. Now, if you don't do this or you do it incompletely, you won't notice any immediate effects. Some processing will remove the bitter taste and stop immediate poisoning. But over time those who consume the incompletely-processed flour will be slowly poisoned and develop paralysis in their legs.

>>3458 >How the hell did that work? The group started out with 4, but then they told their friends how much fun they were having and everyone wanted to join, so people trickled in over time. There were times when they separated into different groups and I ran their stuff separately, other times they were all together. It didn’t feel very difficult to me, they gave me their backstories and I knew enough about the setting to just let things flow with what they wanted. You want to go hunt trolls? For sure, you’ve got that. Looking for a job in town? Ethereal filchers have been causing trouble for the townsfolk, nicking all kinds of things, go hunt em down. Wana go kill dragons? Ok, good luck funding one since they’ve been dead forever but put an ear to the ground and see what you can dig up. They just wanted to go around and have a good time, I threw plothooks at them until they stuck then played up the things they asked lots of questions about or showed interest in. Wound up on an adventure surrounding the fate character’s now mother, elven refugees, the search for the dead dwemmer (and for boatmurdered, if you’re familiar with the dwarf fortress story), and the perfect fishing net. They were hardly interested in the civil war or the dragons, so played with minimal interaction on that axis for months until things fell apart between players. I think the fallout is also partially my fault, since I was relying heavily on their input for what to do and when they didn’t all agree they butted heads. But the good times were good, they gave me a lot of praise for the campaign, and they seemed to be engaged. I hope they had fun in the end. >was it expected that you should have been able to accommodate a character suddenly popping away, solo, to another continent? I don’t really know how expected it was to be honest. I had presented D&D as a game where anything can happen, and I do believe that to be true and that it’s part of what makes it great, and up until that point I had never really outright said “no, you cant do that” and instead it was more like “you’re sure you want to 1v50 the entire town guard after stealing a sweetroll? You realize you won’t get to reload like in the game, right?” For more context we were wrapping up an adventure with a stronger party who I had thrown in for funsies. Some of the characters were played by people from my last campaign who were in town for the week, and I wanted to show off some neat builds/have a higher level PC powered group to let the party know they aren’t the only adventuring group out there and some big fish are in that pond. I also had hoped that they could someday surpass this group in strength, which would have been really cool. After working together for a few sessions, their time together was coming to a close and it was time for the other group to go on and do high level stuff since they weren’t going to babysit the PCs. The two groups were having a debrief session after having achieved their joint goal, and as part of that everyone was asking each other questions about where they were going, what they were going to do next, how to get a hold of each other if either party heard anything relevant to the other, etc. Good roleplay was had all around. My friend, let’s call her Ann, expressed a lot of interest in these characters, specifically the translation/anthropological work being done by their non-combat scholar, and she seemed interested in getting involved in that part of the plot. The other players, however, weren’t super interested and were ready to move on to do other things, and so they said “yea, we’re good, they can leave” and then Ann started to speak up but I pretended I couldn’t hear her (I’m a little bit hard of hearing), closed out the farewell, and had the other party teleport away. I made the assumption that she wanted to go with them, and did some very fast brain thinking to come to the conclusion that if she asked to go there wasn’t a good reason for the other party to say no. They liked her, she could be helpful, and they were strong enough to teleport her over with them. So rather than let her say her peace and try to come up with reasoning why she can’t go, I just shut it down. In post session debrief she let the other players know that she wanted to go with the other group, that she would have if given the chance, and that since they are a group two people saying “we’re done” doesn’t mean that we are actually done. She was upset more that the other party members hadn’t consulted her before saying everyone was good, and I apologized and said “if I had heard you, I wouldn’t have just ended it like that. I’m sorry. If that happens again wave your arms or something to flag me down so I can know.” It twists my stomach to think about how I just lied to her face like that. It was not cool of me to just talk over her and ignore what she wanted just because I had a storyline panic. Good DMs know you don’t put anything in your game that you aren’t prepared to have your players touch/break, and I thought I knew that too but turns out I screwed up. I wasn’t a good friend or a good DM that night, but I learned my lesson at least and I can try to be better now. >I guess what I’m saying here is that those who came before us, whether those be ancestors or long-departed colleagues, were rarely the idiots we imagine them to be, and that it’s good to respect them, understand them, and question our urge to tear down what they built a little more than we presently do. The work and wit of our forebears is crushed under the heel of the march of progress. We think ourselves smarter than them, that progress exists and we have become better than they were. I think, though, that if you take the time to look back on what humanity has wrought you know that they had just as much capacity for greatness, and if we look at people’s behavior now we can see that we retain the same capacity for barbarity as well. A major factor separating us from witch trials and public hangings is that we have newer, more fashionable spectacles to be distracted by, but graphic and gory depictions of violence, both staged in film and captured live, shows us that we are still fascinated by brutality. We’re no better, we’re no worse. We’re just people, trying to get by in the world. Always have been, always will be. >Of course, when it comes to making creative works then one's free to do whatever one wants with respect to genre and convention. There's not a lot of consequence if you fuck up

At least that your conscience stung you shows you do have a conscience and that it's operating properly. >But you can achieve something similar by having some of the random encounters being more difficulty than the norm, not to the degree of a FOE, but still very challenging. The different parts of the dungeon floor can have totally different enemy spawn tables, and you can bet I can tell you which ones spawn the murder worms that wreck you in the first stratum, or the angry longneck who spends their starting turn buffing themselves so you have sufficient time to wet yourself before they one shot your party. I did consider the rare-encounter idea, but initially dismissed it as a way of giving that SD a little spiking. But mapping it to specific areas on specific floors does add something to it! If you can rig an encounter table such that the rare encounters feel like they can happen but don't happen so often or so strongly that they feel unfair, then they become part of the press-or-retreat tradeoff decision... >Not knowing if you’ll have to face something like that around the corner makes you paranoid, and leaves you wondering “do I really have enough to keep going? I’ll be ok if nothing too bad happens, but if I’m ambushed by enemies that use leg bind to stop us running we’re toast. ...as you point out. >a more level headed gamer would just plan for the worst case and be pleasantly surprised afterward But that's the interesting thing, right? If you set up a challenge just right, there's no one dominant strategy that'll bring you out. If the player has to choose to be level-headed or risk-taking, then you've made something interesting.

So I have been lurking on Christian since 8chan was relevant and I have been wanting to start a science and religion discussion. I have read a few things about how particle physicians believe that there is something beyond out level of reality, however there are also a ton of people that don't even understand that there are concepts beyond even our understanding of matter. Like I've had debated with people where I would claim that there could be a being that exists beyond out perception of matter and they just say shit like "if it is there then why haven't we found it yet?" Like we are bound to material so ofcourse we can't see it or interact with it. Idk tho that's just sort of me ranting. What do you all think?

Current pastebin link: https://pastebin.com/Pdr931hQ For the past years, this subject has evolved greatly but it is best to start with something a little simple. Atari, the once mighty giant, had poor design choices after their success with the 2600. They have committed the biggest sin of all, which was neglecting the sound hardware for their 8-bit gaming console, the 7800. While the 7800 had native backwards compatibility with the 2600, it lacked any sustainable sound chip other than the TIA chip from the 2600. However, the designers of the console alleviated this by having developers implement the POKEY chip in their cartridges with little costs. Although, this was dropped as soon as Jack Tramiel bought out Atari and restructured the company. The POKEY chip was primarily used in Atari's arcade cabinets and 8-bit home computers. It was most notable known for being used in Lucasfilm Games's Ballblazer for the Atari 7800. The theme Song of the Grid rip Russel Lieblich had some interesting origins, from the Wikipedia article: Ballblazer's theme music, called "Song of the Grid" and heard between matches, was algorithmically generated, a technique designed by Lucasfilm Games team leader Peter Langston and called "riffology". The lead melody is assembled from a predefined set of 32 eight-note melody fragments, or riffs, which are put together randomly by an algorithm that also makes choices on several parameters including "how fast to play the riff, how loud to play it, when to omit or elide notes, when to insert a rhythmic break". The melody is accompanied by bassline, drums and chords, which are also assembled on the fly by a simplified version of the above approach. In effect the music plays forever, without repeating itself but without straying too far from the original theme. Langston, an experienced jazz, rock, and folk musician, said of Ballblazer's music: "One reviewer, an eminent jazz player [Pat Metheny], said it sounded like John Coltrane did it. I think that's my best compliment so far." The Atari 7800 version was one of the rare releases for the system to use the POKEY additional sound chip. To pose some questions: Who is your favorite vidya composer and why? Which vidya generation, other than the 1st and probably 2nd generation, has the best music? What is your favorite sound chip?

Dawn of Mana, or Seiken Densetsu 4, is a somewhat questionable entry into the series and being a Square game it has a very expensive epic score that's maybe a tad generic, but there's also this rockish undertone to it spicing things up a bit.
Dark Native Apostle is a rather bizarre 2001 PS2 puzzle/platformer/action game from Hudson of all people. It's one of the earliest games to utilize cell-shading technology but the really cool thing about it is that late '90s techno sound that only a very small portion of 6th gen games managed to catch.
Drakengard 2, arguably the best in the series and more well known for begetting the Nier franchise, has a really interesting score.
Eternal Ring is an early From Software game, from back when they still used to make something other than Souls games. It's somewhat notorious for its eccentric score that doesn't fit anything happening on the screen but that's kinda part of its charm.
So Even of Extinction is a somewhat clunky but fun early 2000s beat' em up with an admittedly solid OST that also channels that 90s techno goodness.

It is interesting why certain branches of gaming die despite being popular for a long time. Has something to do with the current year no doubt, needs some profound pondering.

Tekken3 had such a strong impact on me from a young age that I'm probably always going to be in it's grip in some respect. I really enjoyed bloody roar extreme and wish there was a more coherent transformation 3D fighter. Some sort of limited air-movement magical girl 3D game would be my dream game, I guess, but these days I play tekken. >Do you play with a fightan gamepad like a good lad?

Where the fuck is the analog stick? What is this shit? The introduction of a space between actuation and release on any input device should be a crime punished by being tortured to death. It's ((current year)) and you'd have to file down the stems on keyboards and add shit to the springs or some shit to have a half functional device even though we had joysticks in the fucking 90s.

I remember really getting into fighting games in the mid '00s with Tekken 5 and Soul Calibur 3 and Guilty Gear XX and Virtua Fighter 5, and many more. Even M*rtal K*mbat. But after the '00s it all started getting kinda messy and I started to lose interest.

Using the power of 1000 GET I resurrect the terminology thread! I also banish "cuckcake" as a term forever. By the power of numerals let it be done. >Why's "cuckquean" spelled funny? Orality and Literacy in Early Middle English edited by Herbert Pilch 1996 pp26 (https://books.google.com/books?id=jBVIrowvY_sC&lpg=PA26&ots=wgirgXLRdr&pg=PA26&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false) is part of a long section on the translation of the Middle English "quene" and mentions that the Middle English Dictionary shows the root as OE cwene- a) a woman; b) a lowborn woman … harlot … term of abuse; but OE cwēn - a) a pre-eminent female noble… … etc. It goes on to explain quean and queen as having their distinctions in the Old English roots of cwene and cwēn. Bascially queen evolved from a term of high praise while quean evolved from a derogatory one. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?allowed_in_frame=0&search=cwene shows Old English cwene "woman," also "female serf, hussy, prostitute" (as in portcwene "public woman"), but I don't know where they sourced that from. Less reliable wiki sources are somewhat confused. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/cwen under derived terms shows cwene (woman, wife, prostitute), but https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/cwene shows its definition as simply a woman. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/quene also lists the Old English root of "quene" being cwene "woman, wife, prostitute" >What's all this "compersive" and "humiliation" I keep seeing mentioned? Compersion is joy in another's pleasure. You already know what humiliation means. Compersive cuckqueans do not feel humiliated by their men fucking other women and get their kick out of the joy they feel while he does it. Humiliation-driven cuckqueans feel humiliated by their men fucking other women and get their kick out of this humiliation. The two tend not to understand each other very well, and humiliation-driven cuckqueans tend to ignore the existence of their compersive cousins.

why the antlers?
>>3066 They’re historically a symbol of someone who gets cucked. When a man was cuckolded, he was usually the last to find out, so it was said that he had horns (i.e. everyone else could see them but he couldn’t). Lots of references to this concept in Shakespeare etc. So when cuckqueaning was coined, it was natural that symbolic horns/antlers came along too, since a cuckquean wears her horns happily.

>>3475 >widespread usage in 90s usenet stories Really? This is very big news if true! Very exciting to think there might be a cache of forgotten cuckqueaning culture on the old Internet. You're sure they were using "vixen" in the cuckqueaning sense of being "the other woman" rather than in the more general sense of "a woman considered to be sexually attractive"?

Making something on the spot, tailored only to one person, is something that human-written erotica has never been able or willing to do, but many readers don’t want to custom-order their stuff, they want that unpredictably human touch that only a careful author can provide.

It’s a harem, not pure queaning, but it’s a very hot premise.

does a guy cucking a chick in a lesbian relationship count as cuckquean?
8 posts and 3 images omitted.
>>3433 >>3464 Yes and no. Depends whether you take a purely definitional approach or a historical/contextual one. From a purely descriptive standpoint, cuckquean has now come to mean any woman who gets cucked by anyone for any reason with or without her participation or knowledge. The term simply denotes a female victim of infidelity, without any fetish context. This was also its historical use: >1562: "Ye make hir a cookqueane." >1897: "Yes, that's her name! His cuckquean she is; his wife she is not and never shall be!" So a lesbian whose girlfriend commits infidelity with another girl or another guy would be called a cuckquean because she is a woman who has been cucked. But IMO this doesn't properly answer the question, which is about the cuckquean fetish. When you ask whether "a guy cucking a chick in a lesbian relationship" is the cuckquean fetish, then you have to ask what the cuckquean fetish is. From a historical/contextual standpoint you would go back to when "cuckquean" was resurrected as a term, and that was specifically in a fetish context to mean a woman who was complicit in her man's infidelity with other women. There was at the time also, separately, porn involving lesbians whose partners slept with with other women (and sometimes men), but this was called "lesbian cuckolding" since it was an adaptation of the more straightforward male cuckoldry formula to lesbians. >Both compersive and humiliation content are still cuckquean after all, and for me at least those two evoke VERY different feelings. Perhaps that's why there was a small war over the term in the early 2010s. From our old terminology thread: >The humiliation/compersion thing was actually the subject of a kind of holy war within the community some years ago. >When Jenn Coney (or some name like that) first started her blog around 2009-2010 and proclaimed herself the template cuckquean, severe humiliation, degradation and a stripping away of choice were a mandatory part of the term. The community was made up mainly of her followers and fans. Many had had their partners cheat on them and then post-rationalised it as something they wanted. There was a lot of competition to find even deeper levels of degradation or humiliation, the idea being that if you didn't you weren't a good cuckquean. >When a group of cuckqueans emerged and said "actually we're not so much into playing the helpless victim", some nasty scrapping ensured. The original group accused the new group of not being cuckqueans because they weren't deprived of choice and the new group accused the original group of not being cuckqueans because they were really just being abused.

>>3467 >Lesbian cuckqueaning is therefore impossible if a man is involved; the involvement of a man makes it lesbian cuckolding. QED. That doesn't follow from the above. In particular, you're relying on >However, because we and the culture at large are naughty little gender essentialists, this can't apply to a situation where the third partners are men because then the unfaithful "male" lesbian would be pushed into a female role. But it's irrelevant. Neko/tachi isn't a statement on initiative even if it's often falsely equated to such, and that continues to be true even if an established role is contextually inverted. In particular, you're imagining a lot of fixed role combinations (presumably because it lines up to hetshit) but neko-fucks-a-third-party and tachi-gets-fucked-by-a-third-party are extremely common - I'll interject for the sake of clarity that getting fucked and topping aren't mutually exclusive. You wouldn't say that a queen in the japanese bdsm sense is bottoming. Tachi-tops-man lines up with cuckquean sensibilities in terms of dom/subshit, but it denies the precious illusion of intrinsic gender-derived value that most content here seems to rely on. Everything else is an aside to that fact. >Which, let's face it, is a really really good term: Cuckquean. Feels great in the mouth. Just use netorare v. netorase like an actual human being instead of needlessly introducing ambiguity in a case where you're trying to mix water and motor oil. Pretending there's a commonality is just a failing of the art of the creator.
>>3469 Those sure are a lot of words. It's a shame I can't read. >Just use netorare v. netorase like an actual human being lol
>>3469 >That doesn't follow from the above It does since anon is trying to dig into unconscious gut feelings that don’t obey the Japanese lesbian laws, which is what I guess all this neko/tachi stuff is from. Of course femdom can top with penetration but exceptions like that don’t help explain why people above keep saying stuff like >eh, yeah, it’s technically cuckqueaning but calling it that feels kinda wrong And anyway our terms don’t line up perfectly with the Japanese ones. Ours describe different lines to theirs because of our different history and cultures. >>3467 >I gather that lesbians don't like bisexuals very much. I looked up the term and yeah, that seems to be it. >a situation where the more "female" lesbian partner encouraged the "male" lesbian partner to go and have sex with other girls would feel like lesbian cuckqueaning Pretty specific, but it kinda passes when I imagine it. It’s definitely not as strong but it doesn’t feel like cuckold either, which the opposite does. But even if >>3469 relies on Japanese jargon for lesbians and NTR, part of their point is still valid, which is that mapping hetero attitudes onto lesbian relationships might explain our hetero gut feelings but doesn’t tell us how they actually do things. Unless we hear from some actual lesbians who do lesbian cuckolding/cuckqueaning/whatever who can tell us what their terms and dynamics are then that’s as far as we can go for now.

>>3474 >anon is trying to dig into unconscious gut feelings that don’t obey the Japanese lesbian laws Pretty much, which is why I mentioned that I was relying on general cultural memes which, right or wrong, still exist. It's half speculation, half shitpost. >And anyway our terms don’t line up perfectly with the Japanese ones. Ours describe different lines to theirs because of our different history and cultures. Yes, this is important. Netorare and netorase in particular are shotgun terms that carry a lot of extra stuff along with them because of the way the Japanese have developed them as genres. What we think of as cuckqueaning partly intersects with what they think of as 逆NTR, but there's plenty of both areas that don't overlap. I can think of only a few Japanese works that fully express cuckqueaning, and only some of those would be considered even partial 逆NTR. >But even if >>3469 relies on Japanese jargon for lesbians and NTR, part of their point is still valid, which is that mapping hetero attitudes onto lesbian relationships might explain our hetero gut feelings but doesn’t tell us how they actually do things. Also very true. I took for granted that a reader would be considering my suggestions from that angle, given the whole post makes it clear that it's talking about cuckqueaning as it is practiced. What I was considering, broadly, was "how does this label for a fetish-cluster practiced and shaded mainly by heterosexual couples respond when applied to lesbian couples, but keeps its (cuckqueaning's) own terms of reference?" Maybe lesbians who do fidelity play have their own jargon for how they do this, maybe they borrow jargon and put new shading on it, whatever; what I was trying to figure out was why the label as we understood it didn't quite seem to fit unless we opened it all the way up to its broadest definition. >Unless we hear from some actual lesbians who do lesbian cuckolding/cuckqueaning/whatever who can tell us what their terms and dynamics are then that’s as far as we can go for now. We've had a few lesbians stop by before, attracted here by various reasons, but I can only recall two reports of any kind of actual cuckqueaning that involved anything that could be considered lesbian and involved a man. In the first case, the dynamic was one of the poster and her girlfriend mutually submitting to the man, who was a part-time play partner of theirs. The poster got tied up and her girlfriend got fucked, but it was clear that both were very submissive to the man for the duration of the play reported, which lasted a weekend. If I go and track down the ancient source... >Background: I have an unconventional arrangement where I sort of get double-cucked by two people I love. I have a lovely darling girlfriend (I'm a cis bisexual female) and a lovely thoughtful dom with a terribly sadistic streak and a huge cock. The three of us get together every other weekend or so as time allows. >I'm a cis bisexual female >bisexual

It appears no church or denomination is correct Anonymous 05/04/2022 (Wed) 20:07:25 No.10114 [Reply] [Last]
I have found Christianity itself to be the truest and most virtuous religion in the world, but no denomination, no church, no community seems to have gotten it right yet. On one hand you have the protestants who are rife with political agenda and the worst followers imaginable, but then you have the catholics led by a complete fraud called the papacy. Even the old orthodox are fractured and also worship graven images. Other religions of the world are not as divided as us, Shia and Sunni Muslims seem to get along most of the time, while we Christians are at each others throats at every opportunity. Where did it go so wrong?

>>11605 The Bible certainly claims -- many times, in fact -- to be the authoritative, God-breathed, Word of God. I consider that validation enough alone, given the many establishments of the validity of the text itself as clearly supernatural in origin. But there are many other reasons to declare it as clearly the authoritative Christian scriptures and guide. Certainly far beyond any individual man's words today. What more do you demand, friend?

"Identify this film I barely remember!" thread italodisco 03/13/2022 (Sun) 21:58:51 No.2381 [Reply]
Figured it would be good for others, I've been scratching my brain for hours (unhealthy?) trying to remember where the he'll I saw this scene: A man wearing a hat steps outside to smoke a cigarette, when a phantasmagorical hand appears from thin air and seems to bother his psyche... The weirdest thing about this is that it felt like a silent film, but the elements like the man and his hat felt very noir-ish... And this might be the years of substance abuse catching up to me but I even remember the scene being purple tinted and the floating hand yellow tinted... Or was it the other way round! Am I losing it!

There was a documentary about American expansion of the suburbs and the cancer of the highway system running through America narrated by a "somewhat mousy"-sounding woman in her 50s. Never wrote down the name of it.
>>2531 That doesn't really tell you squat. I think it was 50 to 110 minutes long, it briefly covered how some woman campaigned and prevented a highway cutting through Brooklyn and discussed how the upper-middle class think that the suburbs are nature. It's fairly obscure but I'd appreciate someone posting it to the documentary thread.
>>2532 Has to be this one >>2534
>>2535 It's not but I'll check this out anyway. It's production quality indicated it was of obscure status and probably made for a university library or some shit, and all of the footage was just stock images and news reel with no music.

[JW02 ~ 04/16/2020] A thread to post and request good documentaries on the variety of subjects. I'll start with some choice docus on ancient Egypt. All are selected for quality of presentation, study of subject as well as absence of current year agendas, we wuz kangz niggers etc. Romer's Egypt (3 episodes; 1982) and Ancient Lives (4 episodes; 1984) – the finest and quintessential ancient Egypt presentation; a soothing, in-depth look into ancient Egypt’s life and culture. It has that unmistakable classy 80s look that elevates it above the rest. https://www.invidio.us/channel/UC4gF7P8JKlJ9xAz8MF6AhFw/videos https://www.invidio.us/user/xinistri/videos Egypt: Beyond the Pyramids (4 episodes; 2001) – somewhat similar to Romer’s; not as in-depth or classy but still an enjoyable watch. https://www.dailymotion.com/search/Egypt%3A%20Beyond%20the%20Pyramids The Robot, The Dentist and the Pyramid (1 episode; 2020) – an excellent amateur documentary about the latest attempt to explore the shaft of the Great Pyramid. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=rhsddHgybTo Immortal Egypt (4 episodes; 2016) – despite being modern and hosted by a wommyn, it surprisingly manages to somehow avoid the current year pozz and is very much watchable. Probably the best HD series on the matter.

Are there other documentaries that manipulate the audience into believing that a murderer is completely innocent, railroaded by the system? After watching, you may be aghast at the gross miscarriage of justice. But then you research the case to discover that the person is obviously guilty and the filmmakers omitted reams of damning information. My first encounter with this type of documentary was The Staircase, and I'm still not sure about the motivation of the filmmaker. I haven't seen Making a Murderer but apparently it does the same thing. Paradise Lost is fresh in my mind because I just listened to this excellent stream that examines the whole documentary series. https://odysee.com/@Blackpilled:b/satanicpanic:2?t=504 In the late 90s, the series generated a passionate movement of celebritards and proto-redditors who rallied for the innocence of the West Memphis Three, edgy teens who "listened to Metallica" are were thus targeted by their backwards community. Don't pass judgement on people who are different from you, preach the rootless cosmopolitan filmmakers as they proceed to slander a rural southern community. And it gets much worse from there...

Why do Christians not support Blasphemy Laws? Anonymous 05/09/2022 (Mon) 14:22:39 No.10716 [Reply]
In Saudi Arabia, you can be executed for insulting the Prophet. In Burma you get arrested you mocking the Buddha. In most of the Western world you can go to prison for questioning the Holocaust. Meanwhile Christians allow themselves and Christianity to be mocked in denigrated in the name of "Free Speech" and "Freedom of Expression". Why do Christians allow themselves to be mocked in this way. Nobody takes the religion seriously anymore, even traditionally minded westerners are converting to Islam and Hinduism. Would people start taking us seriously again if they could be killed for mocking us, like they can for other religions? Note that I'm not saying you should kill people, this is just a hypothetical.

How to be free of fear? Anonymous 11/17/2021 (Wed) 18:15:38 No.1889 [Reply]
TLDR: I know I have to get rid of fear with religion, but I don't know how. I feel like I am in some sort of extreme apathy. No, I'm not into dark thoughts of ending life. It's more of an extreme apathy of not feeling any positive emotion at all. I'm not sure how to explain it properly, I'm sorry. It's like I am unable to receive happiness or I am unable to enjoy fun playing videogames. As if I am emotionally sterile. I need to open my heart and be honest and say what I'm really thinking, but I have a problem with trust. I don't reveal my honest thoughts, my honest opinions to even my family (who are very nihilistic) because every time I open myself to a problem I get the "your problems aren't worth sharing" treatment and they quickly change the topic. I have a few friends but they are not RL friends. I won't go to many details but this basically led me to a situation where I let fear govern me and myself, and this went on for around 10 years or so. Why the heck am I posting this in the Christianity boards? Because I used to be Christian when I was a teen, going to the church for months and I had a better mental health... until my mother did a "how dare you" speech onto me, making me stop following Christianity. I believe that there is a connection. If I am Christian, there is no fear. Otherwise there is fear within me. I think I need to go back to my Christian ways to finally get rid of my fear. Problem is that my fear seems to be that big that I don't come up with any steps to get started.

So, I guess it's not really a /retro/ computer, but it will be in a /retro/ case, and I plan to get an adapter which will let me use a 3.5" floppy disk drive in there. The adapter plugs into the floppy pins, and presents a USB interface to the motherboard. That adapter is under $10 USD. In fact, I've seen an adapter card that will do the same but for 5.25" floppy disk drives. So, when I have more money, I should be able to have not only a 3.5" FDD, but a 5.25" FDD in my system, running alongside new solid state drives, Blu-Ray disc drives, and of course a few regular hard drives. It should be pretty fun. Again, no pictures yet but I will share with you guys when I can. For now I'll just post one from my collection. What have you guys been up to?

There could be nothing further from Christianity than Judaism-- a literal and direct rejection of Christ in favor of the Rabbinically-crafted Talmud. agreed, although its important to emphasize the fact that most Jews nowadays dont care nearly as much about the Talmud as the orthodox and ultra orthodox Jews do. Aswell it must be understood that a large part of the Talmud is just debate between different scholars (this is what makes it particularly unique). Outside of a few chapters that reiterate the OT the book itself is not religious doctrine but rather study. What each individual Jew and denomination gets from it is determined by them. You basically have a whole list of arguments and debates that took place over many many years that you get to read through and study and agree or disagree with. >The modern Jews are a unique, heavily interbred race of people. Edomites and the Israelites who left for Babylon both came to reside in what is now southern Palestine, called Judah by the Levantine inhabitants. Here, they intermixed into peoples like the Pharisees who would be later known as the "Jews" due to the Latin name for the entirety of Palestine (both Galilee, Judah, and the minor states around it) "Judea." yes this is true and has to do with them being an ethno-religious group. Alot of people confuse them for being a purely ethnic group when infact they are not, even the OT says that foreigners were allowed to become part of "the group" if they adopted the beliefs and became circumcised. >Yes, but you have to remember that Christ claims the Pharisees in _particular_ are the "sons of Satan." Even if allegorical, this is clearly dividing the Christians and the Jews into two opposite camps. just to address this issue once again for the record, the people Jesus is referring to are the Jews and Pharisees that persecuted Christians. Many Jews converted to Christianity or remained non-hostile to them. Im saying this because it often gets misinterpreted.

The reason we have Paul is because he's a Pharisee and therefore wise in the scriptures. It is him who clarifies the relation between the Old Testament and Jesus and other theological issues. When you read the New Testament in order they were written as I have suggested you really notice the stark contrast of James and Galatians, I speak boldly to say they practically contradict each other. Paul had to establish things even his first disciples did not understand. Although even Peter came to his own realisation and was surprised when we saw gentiles could be saved by the holy spirit and this is all a few decades after Jesus. So while there is development that happened in the Church from James to the Jerusalem council to Romans and then the Gospel of John. The development we see is a more and more bold understanding of Jesus, based on the Old Testament but also on Jesus, the Gospel account doesn't contradict the letters of the church. Of course even the Gospel writers themselves point out how things Jesus said were not understood until later. If Paul was needed as a religious wiseman, then why wasn't he part of the twelve from the beginning. Why choose people who were likely all less than wise in scripture and then have a scripture man come later. Again I point out Matthew frankly was not the best for pointing out scripture that was related to Christ. Paul had to come later for reasons. Reasons.
I am going to re-state my very true theory that Demas wrote Hebrews. First off I purpose Hebrews is not at all like Paul, it doesn't have the weight and authority and I can make a whole post just disproving Paul wrote it. Now I do have a slight problem, because I place Acts of the Apostles written 64 AD and Second Timothy 65 AD. Again, Demas' first mention: Paul praises him as a worker along with Luke, Mark and another common guy in Acts. Second mention: Paul sounds dismissive of Demas. Third mention: Demas betrays Paul and loves the world. Demas is not mentioned in Acts. Luke constantly mentions names just to mention them but not Demas. I though Luke removed his presence because of his betrayal of Paul, but that didn't happen until a year later after Acts was written. But it's likely Demas had a slow decline and Luke very much might have seen him as a bad egg, maybe even annoyed by him and so scrubbed him from any mention in Acts. And it follows that if Luke is willing to remove Demas from Acts then why not the church remove his name from Hebrews after hearing about what he did to Paul and possibly Demas just left the faith altogether. Note, most historians seem to agree the writers name was purposefully removed, it is very unlikely to somehow have been lost and you just don't write a note like this without explicitly stating who you are. Also note by the end of the 1st century the author was already lost and unknown. The only context clues from Hebrews: "Pray for us" "Know ye that the brother Timothy is released, with whom, if he may come more shortly, I will see you."

>>11594 I meant to say western Anatolia, that's where Philemon and the rest were, so they could make it to Rome pretty quickly.
ANOTHER point I just thought of. No way Paul would say "the brother Timothy is released." Paul loved Timothy, but this letter sounds rather apathetic to him. The "if he may come shortly, I will see you." to me implies "if Timothy comes back to Anatolia with me soon I'll see you." The person was not writing to say they were coming soon but rather coming as soon as Timothy was ready to go. Not at all authoritative, Paul would be the one making decisions, not waiting on Timothy. Paul was like a father to Timothy he calls him his beloved son. What I do not understand is the "I will see you." Not only is this letter not addressed to a church but when I read it it almost seems like written to some lover. That or another big name in the church. Could be sent to a wife or clergyman who was meant to give the sermon to the church. And if it was a fake note then why does it not claim to be from anyone and seem to just speak of these weird out of context two things being in Italy and Timothy. Second Peter comes off as fake for just the opposite reasons although Second Peter also seems real because it calls itself the second epistle while making no attempt to sound like it but I talked about that already. There might be more about Hebrews and maybe I can explore another option. But nothing about it says Paul and the Priscilla theory makes little sense to me. If we had evidence of Priscilla in Italy with Timothy though there might be something. Luke is indeed also a very good candidate he was in Rome with Timothy. If the requirements are just being in Rome shortly after Timothy's release then indeed then we have options like Mark and Aristarchus and others. But this doesn't explain why the name of the letter was removed. Paul writes in Philemon "Markus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lukas, my fellow-workmen!" We get the sense these were the original gansters Paul immedialy writes to when he is under house arrest in Rome. And a year later Paul mentions the whole squad being in Rome with him, the good ol boys. Keep in mind Paul didn't even ask them to come. Rather: "But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you." He thought he was going to be able to come to them. And I should mention some think the letter was written during the Caesarea imprisonment not the Roman but this is unlikely for a few reasons. Plus it actually doesn't change much since Paul was trasnfered to Roman imprisonment shortly after.

I just realized that PS5 came out like 2 years ago and they're still doing the PS4/PS5 cross-gen promotion, holy fuck. In the previous generations the promoted cross-gen would last for like 6-7 months, after which the new gen took over. But they're still doing it because there are no games. What a fucking mistake this 9th or whatever gen was. You're asking people to spend up to a 1K on a console from some scalper online, the games look barely different from your previous console - certainly to an average person, most of the games are ports and remasters from the previous gens anyway and then there are barely any new games at all. But gayming somehow still makes money.

>>2683 >Without it the skin is dead and plasticky - something that no amount of lighting will fix Well yeah, it's the culmination of the different aspects of rendering that create a realistic image, one without the other isn't as effective. >we now use words like "a bit" in regards to comparing the state-of-the-art movie CGI It's that bit which makes all the difference, and I wouldn't call that comparison example cutting edge by modern CGI standards (indeed that same production company produced The Polar Express, a film often cited as an example for how not to do realistic CG). >Become Human is a 4 year old game made on the very cusp of staring to utilize ray tracing Become Human doesn't use raytracing though (and it's still too processing expensive to use for AAA outside of smaller details like reflections). Quake II RTX is an example of a true raytraced game, which makes the impact the tech has on lighting very clear. >Look at these Matrix Reloaded renders, a bit dated but that's a 2002 tech Yeah, rendering across a server cluster with at the time absolute cutting edge hardware. The most realistic real time example at the moment is (fittingly) The Matrix Awakens, which even in its best moments doesn't meet the fidelity of those Reloaded examples. >They think the Lion King 3D remake is just like real life I mean many people complained about the uncanny quality of that movie (and even then it is visually way beyond what a current console could hope to do). >we pretty much do with the backgrounds Until you notice some low polycounts here, a low resolution texture there, an obviously fake reflection.

There are examples of great everything but no subsurface scattering, and it looks like a PS2 cutscene. >I wouldn't call that comparison example cutting edge by modern CGI standards I wasn't calling it cutting-edge by modern standards. Earlier I said: >Sometimes more impressive than the actual movie CGI from like 7 years ago. Again, my point here was that we're at a point where we compare game graphics to movie CGI one way or another and unless you're savvy you will be hard pressed to tell the difference. >Become Human doesn't use raytracing though That was my point, it's an "older" game made when these newer technologies were only starting to get utilized and it looks that good. Now imagine their next game fully utilizing ray tracing and other new stuff. >The most realistic real time example at the moment is (fittingly) The Matrix Awakens, which even in its best moments doesn't meet the fidelity of those Reloaded examples. Entirely a proficiency problem. The guys doing it aren't good enough to pull it off - the tech is clearly there. Again, we only need to match the look, not the actual tech. Those Become Human faces don't do anything fancy to look that good, and that's an outdated last-gen game. >I mean many people complained about the uncanny quality of that movie A very small minority. Normalfags think it should be called live-action because they can't tell it apart. >and even then it is visually way beyond what a current console could hope to do Technically, not visually.

>>2691 Anon, we went through this like 5 times already. We're not talking about in-games graphics reaching the amount of polygons, shaders, bamp maps and so on of a movie grade CGI. We're talking about it looking like it's a movie grade CGI. Because the threshold for perceiving something as realistic or high-end CGI is way lower than a state-of-the-art model with each individual hair rendered and ray traced. And we've reached the level where even in-game graphics can produce movie-tier looking images. Not replicate it on a technical level, but reach the similar end-result. Are we clear on that? There's no tangible way to improve on this. Humans just look like humans in games now, there's enough polygons to simulate that and the lighting is good enough to lit it in a natural-esque way. That is really the threshold, everything else from here on out is just window-dressing for the tech savvy nerds. >Awakens was an in-house production by the Unreal Engine team, those guys know their shit and have the added benefit of understanding the tech inside and out. Knowing how the engine works has nothing to do with the ability to recreate real life, you need a completely different set of skills and knowledge for that. They did what they could to the limit of their abilities. I can guarantee you that if they asked some Pixar guys or Quantic Dream guys to help them out the end result would have been drastically different. In fact, looking at Unreal's attempts as photorealism, they kinds suck at it in general. >They don't though Aaghh anon, I'm talking about normal fucking fags. Yes they do, to them. >Doesn't that suggest though that there's improvements beyond PS5 that we'll see with the next gen, the fact that people always think we've hit the limit? No, because the limit has been there since day one - "what if games could look like real life haha, wouldn't that be rad". That has been the dream goal for every new generation, though up until a certain point most devs didn't even try for the obvious lack of tech and instead created their own artistic visions of reality. Well, they are now, there's nothing beyond that sadly but obviously. And now you also can't go back to the wonderful visual creativity but it would look like a step back. That's why I hope normalcattle grows tired of boring photorealism. >Well let's look at your examples Anon, the screenshots I posted will literally pass as photographs to an untrained eye if you print them in some magazine somewhere (minus the character models, we're talking backgrounds here as I mentioned). These are in-game graphics from a 7 year old game with a new lighting rig. You can nitpick them but they in fact look like real life at a passing glance. There's no improving on that. Will the poly count be improved in 5 years? Yes. Will lighting be improved in 5 years? Yes. Will anyone be impressed with a photorealistic image before their eyes in 5 years? Not really, because they already saw it. >but all of those cut corners add up to dispel the illusion If you freeze frame the best CGI ever made and start scrutinizing it you'll find plenty of things that dispel the illusion. The illusion is sold through the larger picture which is what we're talking about here. Photorealism is basically a gimmick, it's impressive once, it doesn't matter if what you saw was the illusion or a mega rendered super model, you're not gonna be impressed the second time when it is a mega rendered super model. >I would say picrel is a pretty obvious jump anon. Only in a direct comparison to arguably one of the best photorealistic renders ever produced. And we're still talking about a 4+ year old game from the previous gen. I said it already, you show that Beyond head to a random guy on a street and he'll say it's from some film. >but humans see reality every day, we know when something isn't right even if we don't have the words That applies mostly to humans, the uncanny valley, you can go on jewgle and find countless incredible photorealistic images that fool your eye but finding even a single 3D image of a human face that passes would be a challenge. We're biologically evolved to communicate through faces after all.
>>2692 >We're talking about it looking like it's a movie grade CGI Yeah but it straight up doesn't, that's the point. If you want to talk about games beating movie grade CGI, then we can say that basically every game from PS2 onwards looks more realistic than Toy Story 1's human characters. >Because the threshold for perceiving something as realistic or high-end CGI is way lower than a state-of-the-art model with each individual hair rendered and ray traced Maybe so but games have not achieved this yet, there is still an obvious, easy to see difference between something rendered in real-time with a consumer-grade GPU and something rendered on industry grade hardware over the course of days and weeks. >Not replicate it on a technical level, but reach the similar end-result. Are we clear on that? What is your definition of similar? A lion from the Lion King remake rendered without all of the fur is not similar enough to be as perceptually realistic. By that standard we could say that Max Payne 1 is photorealistic because they slapped actual photos on the character faces and environments. >There's no tangible way to improve on this This argument makes no sense, there are things that aren't presently being rendered in game graphics that enhance the visual realism of the scene, as hardware progresses and these technologies become more feasible by definition you're improving on the realism of the visuals. >Humans just look like humans in games now, there's enough polygons to simulate that and the lighting is good enough to lit it in a natural-esque way Sure they look more realistic than they used to but they aren't realistic enough that you can't tell that they're game characters. >everything else from here on out is just window-dressing for the tech savvy nerds You don't need to be savvy on this stuff to know that something looks more like real life than something else, it's a matter of perception, not knowledge. >Knowing how the engine works has nothing to do with the ability to recreate real life, you need a completely different set of skills and knowledge for that I mean they literally wrote the thing themselves and understand all of the rendering technologies that went into it, they even had access to resources from the films and referenced them heavily (including numerous scene recreations). >if they asked some Pixar guys or Quantic Dream guys to help them out the end result would have been drastically different These days Pixar uses stuff they commissioned from Maya (as well as various in-house utilities of course). Quantic Dreams next game may well look better than Awakens, but as it stands Awakens shows a very obvious improvement in fidelity compared to Become Human.

The subject says it all, so I shall start it with this one: .338 Lapua Magnum with a rebated rim, and an advanced primer ignition machine gun to go with it. If you don't know what that means, then kikepedia can help you out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blowback_%28firearms%29#Advanced_primer_ignition_%28API%29_blowback But the tl;dr is that it's a simple blowback mechanism that ignites the gunpowder while the cartridge is still travelling forward, and that means the bolt can be a lot lighter. Now, this machine gun would be meant for vehicles first and foremost, because there is already a small push for .338 machine guns anyway, but that one design seems to be way too complex for vehicle use, especially if you put next to it a blowback machine gun. And in theory you could refit any weapon chambered for .338 LM to fire this new cartridge simply by modifying or replacing the bolt and otherwise leaving alone the weapon.

>take a shipping container and put in some seats and handlebars >also add some simple mechanism that lets you open the doors from the inside >put these containers on a train, fill them up with troops >send said train into a border town of the country right next to you that you are about to attack >train rolls in, stops in the middle of the town, suddenly thousands of troop disembark and take over the city It's a dumb idea, and pretty much a one-time trick. But if you manage to catch the enemy off-guard then you can take over a town and use the enemy civilians as a living shield. And maybe you could take over several border towns in the first few hours of the war if you can coordinate a few such attacks.

>>34692 By the time you are at a point where you would have conceived such a plot is the point at which negotiations too have collapsed, and thus likely any uninspected trains passing through have also stopped running. That being said, the passenger trains that exist or equivalent hutt-on-rails anon is suggesting (sameish sample size) would not be significant troop numbers for taking more than the border towns at the start of a big dick invasion move that loses initiative. You might as well roll in, in full uniform on existing infrastructure/trains since general signs of mobilization would be obvious anyways.
>>34692 then you have a pocket deep in enemy territory that you are unable to reinforce or get supplies to, and which the rest of the defending country's troops can attack from all sides and crush within a day. you're also ignoring the logistics involved in transporting anything that's not a man, you won't be able to get anything bigger than a jeep out of the train car in time for it to be effective. also ignoring than any aircraft can just strafe/BRRRRR the train out of existence within 20 minutes of its arrival. this would only be useful in an assassination scenario where you just want to kill a head of state or someone else important very quickly, losses be damned, like Olympus Has Fallen.
>>34692 Inferior to just hidding missile launchers or a bomb in them and then shipping it as normal into enemy ports. Aka. Fresh fruits.

Vita was the best handheld ever made, prove me wrong. Pro tip: you literally can't. Have you seen those dual analog sticks? Those perfect dimensions? It's sad Soyny failed to support it properly, not realizing what they had on their hands, instead treating it like a PS3 periphery, a second-rate product. Shamefur dispray.

>>2633 my whole point was that it wasn't my opinion alone, there was literally a plurality of anons who were confirmed to have fun and played them enough to create recommendations for a project. Your argument about "bias" holds literally no weight, and considering you only speak in vague terms like how you could totally find a ton of games for the PSP that looked interesting to try, but can't be assed to list any of them. Meanwhile I list literally dozens of games on the Vita that anons were confirmed to have fun with, a higher standard than just looking at game covers, and yet the only thing you can do is call me a fanboy. No shit I'll say your opinion doesn't matter, you haven't given any reason to give it any weight at all.

Arcadya Anonymous 11/12/2021 (Fri) 20:11:00 No.1400 [Reply] [Last]
'90s arcades had the comfiest aesthetics. Anon's favorite cabinet? Not just the game itself but the entire thing. Mine is pics related. An excellently put together machine from Sega. As you can see they took a regular arcade cabinet and attached a small frame add-on with curtains, two player seat and gun holsters. A simple thing, really, but it worked wonders in a dark smoky room, especially when you're a kid. The idea was to make it feel like you're in a jeep of sorts as that's the perspective of how the game is played. And they definitely succeeded in that. It is only much later in life that I realized what a simple construction this actually was, but as a kid I thought it was a full scale jeep model. Getting inside, pulling that curtain behind you, taking a gun from a seat side holster - all of that was an atmosphere building prelude, boosted by great sound design that was always emanating even from a vacant cabinet. I remember in circa '98 when it came out there was a queue around it, and that feeling of agitation to get inside fast and in a rush with some other guy next to you only added to the immersion. The game itself was great as well and emulated everything you want to get from a Jurassic Park experience. This was made in an era when licensed games didn't have the stigma of cheap lazy garbage yet and a lot of movie based games were actually pretty good.

Has anyone ever considered buying an arcade cabinet?
>>2686 You'd have to be a richfag for that. You can probably afford buying one cabinet but is it worth having just one cabinet?

Films that revolve around a protagonist in a dead end life serve as a cautionary tale to viewers Anonymous 03/04/2022 (Fri) 20:39:48 No.2364 [Reply]
Hey all, what are some films similar to these two?
Woah, Caden was not in a dead end life, Caden had every chance in that movie to make things work, twice, if not thrice. He had two daughters and still abandoned both, he had two potential partners and still rejected them. It's only after they both leave him that he regrets letting them go. The entire point of the movie is that outlook and decisions change things, you're not stuck in a dead end unless you think you are. It's almost antithetical to the genre you want.
>>2365 Are you forgetting about his (Caden's) mental illness(es)? Check this out: >Repetition compulsion is a psychological phenomenon in which a person repeats an event or its circumstances over and over again. This includes re-enacting the event or putting oneself in situations where the event is likely to happen again. This "re-living" can also take the form of dreams in which memories and feelings of what happened are repeated, and even hallucinated. >Repetition compulsion can also be used to cover the repetition of behaviour or life patterns more broadly: a "key component in Freud's understanding of mental life, 'repetition compulsion' ... describes the pattern whereby people endlessly repeat patterns of behaviour which were difficult or distressing in earlier life". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repetition_compulsion
Motivational Growth - but it goes the "gf solves life crisis" route which ruins the movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToRhJWIBZrE

Do you feel concerned about how much of your life you don't remember? I was looking through my steam library and there are games that I've put 10-20 hours into and I don't remember a second of it. Apparently in 2013 I put 8 hours into Antichamber? I don't even know what that is One of the pros is that you can enjoy a good television series about 6-7 times before you die.
>>4151 I've been experiencing that a lot the last couple of years, wouldn't be surprised if I get hardcore dementia when I'm older (actually I probably would be surprised because I won't remember ever thinking about it). It's shit because I can't take part in discussions about tons of things I remember experiencing, and at best I'll just have a vague memory of what my opinion of it was. Like you say though, it does have the upside of being able to re-experience things you like as if it's the first time.

>>11433 Like i said, believe what you want, but I'm not a Jew, and that is not a good argument, it's just an ad hominem. Not to mention most if not all of the accusations of "the Jews" are gross exaggerations and imply a certain kind of Unity between hundreds of the most splintered prominent jewish groups including entirely contradiction ideologies. The Jews are not always bad, they're not always in the elite. To remove them from it would just leave the non-jewish elite to dominate and subvert you. At least you're a Christian, so there is some hope in you that some day you will realize the moral and ethical problems with being against almost the entire world when they aren't always against you. >your intent is to deceive I ask you again because i've gotten no answer, Where have i been deceitful? The truth is i am not a jew, but i am non-white, so you can now stop treating me like some white to be converted. i used to be extremely racialist and was against the Jews, but now i am not, and with the wake of white nationalist massacre that reference the very sites that i visit i've decided to go against it. You can find data supporting almost anything what matters are your morals, you don't have to be a leftist or a liberal, you can just be a conservative Christian who is against the elite without damning entire group of people containing innocent minorities within the group. It benefits the Government for people to be divided by many aspect including race. Race doesn't answer everything, there are structural parts of life that supercede race.

>>34705 It was mainly a money, resource, time, and hull count issue. They had a very limited number of hulls and very limited resources while the US wasn't exactly hurting for anything but fuel tankers. They were putting a majority of their resources into new destroyers, and they couldn't afford to take their most effective surface warfare assets off the front line for the amount of time the refits would take. The US on the other hand had a lot of their battleship force knocked out of the fight early, requiring major repairs, so they basically had no reason not to perform the refit while they already had the ships in the docks for repairs.
>>34706 Not to start an argument, but if I understand correctly, they had properly gut their battlecruisers to upgrade their machine, and they also put in quite a lot of work into the superstructures in the 1930s, and that's why I find it a bit strange. It's like they wanted to keep some of the 140mm guns just to have something for anti-surface work, but they also thought that the original 1910s battery was unnecessary at that point. Really, I'd just like to get into the head of whoever was in charge of these rebuilds.
>>34709 During the period the Kongou-class rebuilds were taking place, nobody was doing the kind secondary battery upgrade you're talking about, though. The American refits you're referring to only happened because the war. Pre-war, the US's refits of their battle line basically came down to the addition of small/medium AA (.50cal/1.1in) and 5in/25cal (or 5in/38cal later on) HAA, while nixing casemate guns if they needed additional weight or topside space. Basically the Japanese and the Americans were doing the same exact thing as each other. Incidentally, the British, French, and Italians were also doing basically the same thing during that time period, with new constructing receiving better. Even though it wasn't by any means the best, it was entirely good enough according to the understanding of the time period, they weren't being lazy about it in that regard. Also, aside from the immediate amidships casemates, the casemate mounts that were removed from the Kongou sisters were all at high risk of washing out during inclement weather, rough seas, or high speeds. Basically every navy was welding over those casemates after the advancement of boiler technology took the battle line speed up to 21kts+ from 17kts.

>>34701 The mounts next to the turret are rocket launchers. I'm more concerned with that non-Euclidian quarterdeck. >>34705 That's because they were refitted in the early 30s, back when truly effective DP guns didn't really exist. Contemporary US rebuilds made the same compromise.
>>34712 Does anyone have the screencap of the story of the russian baltic fleet? I forgot to save it.
