Topic: Off-topic / Why does everyone forget about Nintendo?

Sonic still exists? Hell, at this point Sega might as well take its chances and release a Dreamcast 2. I’d buy it just to be contrary.

Topic: Off-topic / Why does everyone forget about Nintendo?

Nobody makes games for the WiiU except nintendo. Not even EA. Both the Xbox One and PS4 sold more units in one month than the Wii U has in a year.

You’d probably like Code Geass. The quintessential mecha show is Neon Genisis Evangelion, but be warned, it is weird.

Topic: Off-topic / Loss in gaming performance

Open task manager, go to the processes tab, and sort by memory usage. See if you notice anything using a large amount of resources, and kill anything that does. Then check the performance tab and make sure the processor is behaving nicely.

Topic: Off-topic / Why window vista is so bad?

Windows vista needed two gigabytes of RAM to run in theory.
Windows Vista needed more than two gigabytes of RAM to run in practice.
2GB of RAM was still fairly standard.
That was the biggest problem for most people.

I didn’t find Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin very interesting, and dropped it after 3 episodes.

ok i changed my mind about sad anime so id like yall too give me some ideas about (drama,romance,comedy) anime stuff that has its sad parts,has it lol on the floor parts.

Welcome to the NHK, and Honey and Clover (Not the dub). To a lesser degree, Usagi Drop (No romance, most of the comedy is of the “D’aww” variety),The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (less crying), and Katanagatari (subtle comedy).

For series, I’d heavily reccomend Ano Hana, ef: A Tale of Memories/Melodies, Kannon, and, too a lesser extent, Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora. For just an unexpectedly good romance, try Spice and Wolf as well.

There are a few anime films that come to mind too. Grave of the Fireflies, Hotarubi no Mori e, and 5 Centimeters per Second come to mind.

Topic: Off-topic / Short People.

I have a theory. Shorter people/average size people live longer than taller people. I have an explanation. When people get to about 6 feet in their young ages (12-14) their body isnt fully formed. That means their insides stretch and get oversized. I think its the opposite for small (4.6 at teen age) people.

You’re an idiot

Topic: Serious Discussion / Due to Breaking Bad

There has been no increase in the use of crystal meth that I know of. The show certainly doesn’t glamorize it either.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Cairo Massacre

As horrific as this is, we should not intervene. As beauval has said, it’s really just the natural course of things. However, we are intervening in some manner currently: We are still providing aid to the Egyptian government. We should immediately cease doing so, as we are legally required to in the case of a coup. The US is not classifying it as a coup at the moment though, despite the fact that it clearly is.

Topic: Off-topic / Your Thoughts On OT

on topic, I like OT because it’s random.

Randomness is the exact opposite of interesting. If you want random, wait for the heat death of the universe.

This one thinks opinions and tastes don’t exist

I used to think that way. When I first read that rule, I distinctly remember thinking only 75% of stuff was shit. Then I watched more stuff. I assure you, 90% is wholly accurate, even if what comprises that 90% is up to debate. Even considering that, most of that debate is simply because people can’t separate from liking something and that thing being good.

If someone says The Godfather is a bad film, they are wrong, even if they didn’t like it. I don’t like rap music, but I recognize some of it is good. Most people do not think this way, as they are terrible at being objective, and, like you, think objectivity is impossible.
