This is common among stick players especially. Most people will have problems instant air dashing on 1P side due to the fact that it is far more awkward to accurately input diagonal then a forward when pushing with the palm of your hand/fingertips.

Tekken tends to be the biggest offender of side bias. The vast majority of people have significantly worse movement on the 2P side because Korean backdashing on 2P side requires you to utilise your entire wrist as opposed to your thumb and fingertips on 1P side. By contrast, since Mishima wavedashing/EWGF requires a similar movement in the opposite direction, most Mishimas actually prefer 2P side. Any players who use instant-while-running moves frequently will also tend to favour 1P side because it is much easier to rapidly input dashes with your palm as opposed to trying to 'pull' the stick using your thumb and fingertips on the 2P side.

Some of it also comes down to stick technique. Speaking personally, although I don't have enormous problems on either side in Street Fighter, my shoryuken and double qcf motions are marginally faster when I play on 2P side because it enables me to flick the stick to forward with my thumb and then use my fingertips to rapidly drag it to down/down-forward. On 1P side, I use my entire hand to input the motions.

Vexillatio is third-declension feminine and this is presumably the nominative case so the end result would be 'exquisita vexillatio'. However, 'exquisitus', despite being the etymological root of 'exquisite' does not mean quite the same thing. It is the perfect passive participle of 'exquiro'. Hence, it means something closer to 'the detachment/corps that was sought out/searched for' - which might actually be somewhat appropriate. You could equally use 'cohors' as an alternative to vexillatio, which refers to a detachment of a legion combining 500 men.

If you're looking for a word closer to the English meaning of 'exquisite', you could use something like concinnitās, although that tends to be used more in the context of literary or artistic works.

Incidentally, both 'corps' and 'corpse' derive from the same latin root 'corpus' which simply refers to the body of something - whether it be an animal or a structure or a system or literally a corpse.

I see. Thank you for this break down. I think I'll give it one last version using "exquisita". I like the idea of being close enough, but still getting the job done; seems to fit the series too.

It kind of does. The Latin in the game is kind of weird anyway. The XCOM motto 'Vigilo Confido' is technically correct (albeit a strange construction) since Latin doesn't require a pronoun. It means something along the lines of 'I watch, I believe' - but I'm not actually sure that's what they were going for.

I am also bad at Latin, but it should be pointed out that you have used "Protectoris" for "Corps", though procteroris is (I think?) "defender" rather than meaning "corps" which is another word for battalion (so literally "exquisite defender" in the singular rather than the plural). I also think you have your adjectival ending wrong (-us preceeding -is means they don't agree but someone can correct me on this as the words might not be irregular).

Again, please get the Latin scholar in, but if we wanted to be completely true on a surface level to the original, then it's probably something like "Exquisito Vexillatio" (vexillatio meaning "corps" or "batallion"). The thing is, Vinny is clearly doing one of his Drew-tier puns (corps nearly homophonous with corpse - yes i know, depending on your pronunciation - considering he knows full well how the series will go with Dan's decision making), so if we wanted to be truly accurate and also incorporate the wordplay, we'd end up with something else entirely. Unfortunately I am absolutely no academic and this level of punning in Latin is beyond my capabilities. Translation! Fun!

I've just gotten around to watching Kai for the first time and I'm sure this has been said many times before. The dub is better overall but the soundtrack is absolutely ruining it for me. I appreciate that Faulconer's music is pretty cheesy but without the synth blaring in the background, moments like Vegeta's Final Flash against Cell, SSJ Goku, Gohan/Cell Kamehameha duel etc just feel decidedly underwhelming.

@thepenguin55:

Right, but many of the complaints about Gaf OT culture weren't really about calling out alt-righters. Yeah, you had the occasional concern troll, account suicider etc who was promptly dealt with. However, on occasion, Gaf also had a nasty tendency towards self-cannibalisation and bullying of users who really could not be classed as right-leaning or even moderates. Most typically, this happened in threads with discussions about topics such as acceptable uses of violence as resistance and the like. Undesirable posts were dog piled for 50 pages while favoured users got away with glorified shitposting.

The rise of the 'thinking.gif' was by far the most irritating development of recent months.

He's taking his bloody time composing this "statement" while the forum and users suffer.

Duckroll should take over

I don't mean to be rude, but what incentive does Evilore have to hand over the forum to anybody else? I can only assume that it's made a him a decent chunk of change given the fact that he (allegedly) turned down a $10 million offer for the site. Granted, the forum isn't worth much without its userbase but Evilore doesn't strike me as the sort of personlikely to hand over his cashcow for the 'greater good', as it were.

Gaf is so much more than EviLore. I can only hope it can get handed off to someone else.

So many people seem to trash it online and I don't know why. Yeah you get some bad eggs but overall I really enjoy my time there.

I mean, the reasons why Gaf is trashed online are quite well known. Rightly or wrongly, the site is regarded as something of a self-righteous echo chamber with draconian modding policies.

It seems likely that pianoing will be required to play him which could cause problems for pad players.

I also anticipate a lot of accidental specials without motions to act as a barrier.

ME3 is a far better game than 2. Better combat, better level design, better weapon variety. Oh, and unlike 2, ME3 actually had a plot and wasn't utterly redundant filler.

Sue me.

I think I'd be way more into this game if the maps were procedurally generated or randomized beyond objective placement. I have zero interest in learning maps in FPS, but I dig the tactical "breach and clear" style of combat Siege promises. I probably won't be going back to Siege because it's starting to feel like a game of who knows the corners better.

The problem is that Siege is really built on map knowledge. Success in multiplayer comes from knowing all of the weird angles/holes you can make and out-thinking your opponents. I kind of like that aspect too as it means the game doesn't come down to a question of who can pre-fire first and, in high-ranked multiplayer, people come up with some truly nasty tactics.

That being said, I sure as shit wouldn't want to play Siege on console just as I wouldn't want to play any tactical shooter on console. I would go so far as to say that playing on PS4 completely dilutes the experience as the game slows down to a crawl and precision angles are no longer viable.
