2ch Nadeko thread EXPLODES over Otorigatari

Nadeko thread before:
Nadeko howahowa

Nadeko thread after:
yabai yabai yabai yabai!
Nadeko maji yabai!

DFO again

2nd impact, and removal of fatigue.
I couldn't be happier really.
Maybe this will finally let me overcome my Frozenheart trauma that left me unable to ever play this game hardcore again.

Anyway for rogue, pretty sure these are post-patch rogues.
Shining cut hitbox way smaller I'm instantly noticing.

Anyway I dug up my old Korean builds (but they are in Korean encoding!) and remade my rogue.
Probably will make a necro just to get the weapon as well.

SCOTUS strikes down California video game law

One study, for example, found that children who had just finished playing violent video games were more likely to fill in the blank letter in “explo_e” with a “d” (so that it reads “explode”) than with an “r” (“explore”). The prevention of this phenomenon, which might have been anticipated with common sense, is not a compelling state interest.

Tons of funny stuff in this judgement striking down California's ability to legislate video game sales to minors.

Do not use Amazon Prime in the tri-state area if you see A-1 Courier Services as the shipper

Yelp Reviews of this "service."
Amazon discussion/(now a rant) thread on this company.

Is delivering at 6:30-7:30PM acceptable to a business address?

I ordered my new mouse Sunday night, I chose one day shipping with Amazon Prime for today.
Right now it is 7:42PM in the Office and they are still not here.
Absolutely fucking amazing, how much did they underbid UPS/FedEX by in this area?

Dangan Ronpa

Sort of late to the party, but basically the premise of this game is:
15 students, each specializing in a certain area, are trapped in the same campus for life.
The only way to graduate is to murder someone.
Once someone is killed, a "school trial" is held.
If the true culprit is found out, s/he is only PUNISHED. (Not killed.)
If everyone gets the wrong culprit, that person graduates, and everyone else left gets punished.

The main character however says fuck it and resolves to only find true culprits, and refuses to murder others.

This system is pretty wacky to me, because it basically encourages:
1. If at first you don't succeed, try and try again!
2. If you make the first move and fail, you are returned to the pool. Meaning someone else can try and frame you for it pretty easily.
3. The main character is basically saying "no one leaves here on my watch," which can be viewed as noble or suicidal given the environment.

Anyway I only know about this game because Urobuchi Gen started twittering about it plus they got the 74 year old Doraemon voice actor out of retirement to play a psychotic bear principal.
