I have a 4TB Seagate Hybrid and the improvement from a standard HDD is noticeable, especially on boot. Sure, it's not as snappy as a pure SSD, but it's faster than an HDD and I have tons of storage space.

This seems like an appropriate place to ask this question: Why do people seem to hate 3.33 so much? I don't mean they don't like it as a film, but they get up in arms about what it does to the fiction and characters. Granted, I'm not super invested in Evangelion, but I just don't see the problem with it.

The things that made Korra interesting in the first season (essentially being a proto-typical teenage male hero, only a girl) were cranked up to eleven in the second season to the point where she became totally unsympathetic. She got so bad that the writers saw no way out of the hole they dug themselves than amnesia. I haven't watched any of the new season and don't really care to because season 2 left such a bad taste in my mouth, so I don't know if things have changed. Regardless, that amnesia plot in season 2 was one of the most infuriating things I've ever watched.

Snake Eater, don't be crazy.

Re-releasing The Last of Us when that game is only like a year or two old seems super goddamn sleazy to me. Older games that can benefit from added horsepower (like Shadow of the Colossus) to me seem like good candidates, but if the game already played fine, then it's not really worth anyone's time or money to just clean up a few jagged edges.

I play a Dynasty Warriors game every 7 years or so, and that's all I need. I played 4 back in the day, and my last one was Ken's Rage. They are an itch that doesn't often need to be scratch, but it feels great when it does.

@truthtellah: @hailinel: @hunter5024: Man, I wish I was around for this discussion. I was at work and just got back. For the sake of clarification, when I posted that link, I was speaking much more broadly. Though I think that particular link is relevant to this discussion, it wasn't directed at any one person, group of people, or even topic, Sarkeesian or otherwise.

My main point with posting that link was the way I phrased it: People who know just enough to be dangerous to themselves shouting past each other. Some people are poorly educated or misinformed on feminist theory or the different schools of media criticism. For example, I have a hunch that Sarkeesian subscribes to one (or more) of the Post theories of criticism, which often reject context as a justification for objectionable content (see: #cancelcolbert). People often complain about her taking things out of context, but highly doubt that she's that dense. It's just her approach. Some people haven't played the games she discusses and are only going off a few screenshots and game-play videos and take brad swipes and the defenders and detractors.

The problem is people enter into these type discussions poorly equipped, using information vetted by others that they just assume is right because someone else said it. It may sound like I'm holding people to an unreasonably high standard, but if you are trying to solve the worlds problems, you need to put in a little more of the leg work.

The frustrating thing in these topics is that people have vastly different levels of experience and knowledge when it comes to art, mass media, sociology, and gender/race relations specifically, but EVERYBODY thinks their opinion is valuable and "logical." The people who know what they're talking get annoyed because it really isn't worth their time to attempt to properly educate others on a video game forum, and the people who don't know what they're talking get annoyed because they feel like their views are being unfairly shut down and ignored.

The result is a bunch of people screaming past each other.

That's the name of the game for pretty much every topic like this all over the internet. People who know just enough to be dangerous to themselves shouting at each other, degrading into personal attacks that end up helping no one. In the end, it's more important to make sure other people are wrong than to help them be right.

Look at Zero Suit Samus...

Looks familiar...

Yeah, when I saw Zero Suit Samus, I immediately though that t it looked liked they tried to put Bayonetta in the game, but couldn't make it work for some (probably rated M) reason and just re-purposed the work for something that was already in the game.

@soldierg654342: That last hypothesis of yours might actually make some sense. I've always been pro-ADP and thus always leveled it to 20. As soon as possible in fact. It's possible that's why I don't notice it. Because seriously, when they miss me on my screen, they miss me. Again, excluding online.

Yeah, I played my first two characters with Agility in the high 80s to low 90s and rolling was a goddamn nightmare. It wasn't until I started dumping points into ADP that I was actually able to roll effectively. If my idea is true, I still think it's a poor design decision. But at least it's a bad decision that I can make sense of.
