  • Re: RIP IN PIECES PO PIMPUS 2006-2017, THEN 2017-2018

    Preppy: Please make it a permanent ban in po's case. The man is simply unreachable and no amount of reasoning, sympathetic communication, or... well, fucking anything at all whatsoever gets through to this stupid ass. I tried for years, literally years, and he just kept getting worse and worse.

    He really has autism

    This really isn't a useful diagnosis. I know plenty of autistic people who are actually quite well behaved and have a lot to contribute to a discussion... they just have odd quirks.

    po isn't autistic as far as I can tell. His problem is that he has this incredibly deep desire to be Right about things. He's passionate about all sorts of topics, and often feels like he's the only 'sane man' in any given gathering. That he's somehow the defender of fun and justice and right and goodness in gaming, and everyone else is out to ban fun forever and play bad games forever. If I sound like I'm reducing this to very childlike terms, that's because po's level of thinking over the years has declined into... well, childish outbursts!

    I do suspect some kind of mental illness is involved, though I couldn't guess as to whether the cause is physical (that is, literally some physical problem in his head is affecting his brain function... which turned out to be my problem a few years ago and I normalized as soon as a surgeon cut the problem out of my head) or situational/social.

    It's a shame. When I first met him, he had strong opinions but good intentions and could usually back up his points. Back then, he had value as someone who could challenge popular opinions and make sure they were justified, or correct outright misinformed opinions. Unfortunately, he got worse over time. Much worse.

    Since none of us have been able to get through to him and he refuses to get help for his issues, I have no problem saying "good riddance" and hope po remains banned permanently. He really has little to contribute, and irritates so many people so often that... well, he's not a troll but he has the same damaging effects as one. The SRK Smash 4 crowd steadily died off mostly because we were fucking tired of dealing with his stupidity.

    Isn’t he a Bayonetta main? Can’t bitch if you’re both using S tier characters.

    Well, you can't spell 'hypocrite' without 'po', so.

    CG: Probably wasn't saying it literally, but it's worth correcting anyway.

  • Re: Blazblue Cross Tag Battle Official Discussion

    That's okay. I'm not exactly planning on buying DBFZ in any event.

    60-70 is within the range of what I would find reasonable for the game plus DLC. I can live with 60-70 and that's what I expected to pay for Cross Tag overall in the first place.

    This is nonetheless a really, really bizarre marketing decision and I would have expected them to know that up front. With the company's questionable DLC practices in the past, along with recent controversies on other 'microtransaction' behavior from other publishers, you'd think they would have gotten ahead of the problem. Like, show the price point in bold print during the trailer.

    Because this looked extremely bad, and still has the potential to turn out that way on the western side of things. I admit it's less likely now and I'm glad to hear it, but wow.
