No not at risk although I've light asthma. Our IT department is small and extremely hands on. Always on the move around the hospital through the A&E and Wards. We have to go in and troubleshoot patient TVs in their room when there is an issue. I'm probably being paranoid though. Gonna wash my hands as often as I can.

Thread Nintendo Direct Speculation |OT6| OT7 Has Been Rated in Korea
While I am not saying your wrong and I understand your concerns and agree with a few of them, I can't help but feel you are making it out as if Nintendo missed the ball with the Nintendo Switch when it honestly couldn't be anything but the opposite. I also would love to have X,Y,Z but I think Nintendo will 100% feel they have done the right thing with the Switch and honestly, both software and hardware sales are backing that up. This has been nothing but a big win for Nintendo in every sense of the word.

Thread We tend to forget Digimon World was a major achievement in the Digimon canon
Digimon World is one of my favorite games of all time! I absolutely adore it. It all started when I asked my dad can he rent me "Crash Bandicoot 2" while he was heading to Xtravision. He came back with "Digimon World". I was a little disappointed at the start but my god did it engross me. I knew I had to own it. Two months later for my birthday I got my own copy of Digimon World and the official prima guide. I was stoked! I put hours upon hours into this game trying to figure out all the little quirks. Monzaemon probably ended up being my most used Digimon. Back then I completed it multiple times but completed in the sense of "beating all the bosses". A couple of years ago I set down with my copy in my PS3 and told myself I would get full prosperity in it (recruiting all NPCs). I had a blast still and it was the first ever time I got Greymon in the game (couldn't manage to do it when I was a kid). The game is jank and FULL of quirks and bugs but I will never not love it and it will always remain one of my top PS1 games ever. I just have such fond nostalgic memories of the game. So many hours spent in the gym hearing the "ding" sound from the stat increases. The bird chirping noises in the forest has always stuck with me too. I could absolutely go on and on about this game honestly. It had such a strong impact on me as a child, a teenager and an adult. (Next Order is also great)

Thread Kingdom Hearts III -Re Mind- |OT| So, you have come this far and still you understand nothing.
So I only played roughly 3 hours of the original KH3 because I was extremely disappointed with how attractions trivialized the bits I have played. On top of reading from others how easy the game was, I simply dropped it. My question: Would playing Critical with attractions even it out? Should I play regular difficulty with turning attractions off (am I missing much?)? Just trying to find the right balance really.

Thread Sakurai to announce next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter this Thursday [1/16, 6AM PT]
What I would love: - Sora - Crash Bandicoot - Sephiroth What I am expecting: - Dante - Doomguy I think Sephiroth is near 0% chance. Sora feels like a high chance and I'm really not sure about Crash Bandicoot. I think it's definitely going to be Doomguy with Dante being the second highest possibility. So far I have LOVED the DLC characters and really enjoyed them (I'm a fan of all the games). However, my buddies who I play with most nights are not fans of most of them and have seen the season pass so far as a complete failure to them. One of them wants Spiderman (I explained how it would never happen) and the other one simply wants more gritty/adult oriented characters (Dante would be a big plus for him but we would also like Sora as KH fan). I don't understand these guys...

Still on my first playthrough! In fact, I've been pretty much playing only that since it released (the birth of my first child occurred at the same time so I couldn't dedicate much time obviously!). I am currently 97 hours in and god damn is this good. I've been playing with Harder Enemies and it's been a breath of fresh air. It truly is a fantastic JRPG and one of my favorite games on the switch (behind Xenoblade Chronicles 2 which I have close to 200 hours in).

Only the more difficult monsters one! That's all I am using. It's a great challenge. You really need strategies for the bosses (buffs, debuffs, choosing the right time to use pep powers, etc etc) along with some enemy variations hitting super hard so you go into regular battles with strategies such as "I need to take out X enemy first". It's how turn-based JRPGs should be imo.

Thread Dear Websites: If you're going to guilt me into turning off my adblocker don't assault me for doing it
Do I need to spend €400/month? No. Absolutely not. I could cut back Cloudflare completely. I could potentially cut back Google Cloud Storage completely. But these are convenient and improve the overall user experience by having them both. What I didn't list in my OP are my writer payment costs. I spent quite a chunk of money paying my writers for content. These people also to be paid for their work. Unfortunately site ads completely cover that along with all hosting costs. While I completely agree about ads in general, the alternative simply isn't viable. We cater to a young to middle aged audience. This audience aren't likely to subscribe via Patron on top of other subscriptions/bills they have. We tested a donation system for 3 months. I think we generated €30 but maybe we needed to push a donation pop-up in peoples faces? Do you see where I am coming from? It's oft a lose-lose situation. Honestly? Haven't looked into Amazon AWS at all. It's something I can potentially look into come 2020. At the moment, I'm hosting with a Company of my origin. This currently provides me a lot of benefits (offsite backups, instant customer support, etc etc) and I've been reluctant to change that. I've also been thinking of trying Digital Ocean! Regardless though, despite the server infrastructure, I will still have to pay my writers what they deserve. It's such a hard dilemma and I honestly believe there isn't a current worldwide solution that works.

Thread Dear Websites: If you're going to guilt me into turning off my adblocker don't assault me for doing it
True but to be fair, places like PC Gamer probably have like 20x expenditure costs that I have. I wouldn't be surprised if they needed adblocker pop-ups everywhere to keep things going. I do 100% agree that their ads are quite ridiculous but these things are hard unfortunately. There is such a stupidly fine line between "shitty ad that gives more revenue" to "good small neat ad that gives shitty revenue". I really wish there was a complete alternative approach to these things. God knows I can't think of one though. At least one that would be sustainable in the long run! Always an interesting conversation though.

Thread Dear Websites: If you're going to guilt me into turning off my adblocker don't assault me for doing it
This is always a touchy subject I find. Especially since I'm usually on the receiving end of trying to figure out an optimal solution. My site is run on a dedicated server. This roughly costs me around €250 per month. We provide a huge amount of services (, , full , article writers who need to be paid and more) which made this a necessity. On top of that Cloudflare, Google Cloud Storage and a few other things add about €120ish to that per month for a total of around €370 which is rather expensive. We absolutely need ads on the site to keep the site afloat. I have heavily looked into alternative forms of revenue (dontations, patreon, etc) but none of them are quite good enough to keep the site up. I have tried my absolute hardest to not make the ads on the site annoying or intrusive (more on that with my next point). I have a very small message on the homepage if ad-blocker is detected. At the start of 2019, I entered an advertising partnership with Fanbyte. They have taken over the ads on the site and they are in charge of the ads (but I still have the final say at the end of the day if I choose to). We agreed on some ads and I disagreed and denied others (video that scrolls with you in the sidebar I said "no" to). Now the hard part. I remember sharing an article from the site once and all USA based users were being ad-redirected to these malware giveaway sites. Needless to say, I was super pissed and not happy. Obviously this is not what I intended or wanted. I shot an email to the ad team and they had the redirects blacklisted and the advertiser blacklisted and fully apologized to me. I'm still a little annoyed at the situation but these things do happen and often happen unintentionally. They even happened when I was alone with Google ads and I had to report them to Google. I'm not entirely sure what my point is (a lot of rambling) except that these things are a constant headache and sometimes very hard to directly control.

Thread I Yu-Gi-Oh Switch a deep enough CCG for me?
Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution can be as deep as you want it to be essentially. You have a very in-depth campaign spanning quite a few number of hours, reverse campaign duels, unlockable duelist challenges and that's before you even jump into the online or draft modes. Online will be where you need to strategieze, you'll be coming up against people who will want to make the best possible version of their favorite decks so the duels won't be cakewalks. Having said that, high meta Yu-Gi-Oh! is often a 2-3 turn affair before the duel ends, you should be aware of this. It may also force you to run specific cards to stay in the duel after turn 2 (cards such as Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring). Ultimately, for the price, I think there is plenty on offer!

It's using which is the latest Master Rules that the TCG uses. It introduced Link Monsters, changed the field and introduced a summoning limit on the extra deck where you need to "Link" extra deck monsters into Link monsters. I think the intent of this was to slow the overall TCG down but it hasn't really achieved that since people quickly figured out how to "Link" spam while continuing to pop extra deck monsters everywehre. Try it out. You can still work with it. Just note that most of the "story" decks don't have Link monsters in them unless you build a custom deck.

Thread We need to talk about how the FIFA games fake exciting and hard-fought matches by altering stats and AI levels
I used to be pretty addicted to Fifa back around 13/14 but it really really wears you down after a while. You could play the best match ever against an opponent who clears seems much worse than you and you can still lose thanks to silly things like 3 injury time goals. It doesn't make it fun in the long run. And don't get me started on Inform/Rare players. They are EXTREMELY expensive and yet most of the time a players with common gold teams perform much better (literally perform better, not a skill thing). You can have a Rare player with 85 pace be beat by a common player with 80 pace most of the time. It just makes you sit back and say "what is even the point of these stats on the cards?". I've honestly quit Fifa for the last two years and I really haven't missed it much.

I'm not saying none of these people don't deserve some shit but I'm the type of person who generally stays out of stuff like that. I'm just here for the games but this place is starting to feel less about games and more about the negative personalities of people every day. Anyway, rant over.

I wonder is it because you don't have a name specified in the manifest? Firefox doesn't prompt you to customize the name when you add it (unlike Chrome, which brings up a input text box while adding it). So maybe it's bugging out because no name is specified. I'm not sure, just throwing ideas out while comparing your manifest file to my own one.

Thread Comfy Couch Suggestions - To buy or not to buy?
Hey all! I love PC gaming. I have a whole room upstairs set up for it. I have a deck and a nice comfortable chair with a 32inch 4k G-Sync monitor. My PC has a 1080ti and an 8600k processor so it's pretty decent. Having said that, I love playing games down on my couch and just "relaxing", something I can't really do up in my PC room. So I've tried a few things but I'm always bothered by how it ends up. - Built in Steam app on my Samsung 4k TV: My TV isn't too new so it can't do 4k streaming and has no bluetooth so I'm stuck with the Steam Controller only. Not ideal as I'd like to play 4k with my Xbox One Controller. - Steam Link: Still 1080p but I guess I get to use my Xbox One Controller now. - Moonlight Raspberry Pi: Limited to 1080p because of the Pi and can use Xbox One Controller. Easier to use Steam Link tbh. - Old android box I can connect to my TV: Oof. Worst of all. My partner and I are renting our house so I don't think I can get away with drilling a hole down into the Kitchen and then into the Living Room to route a HDMI cable across unfortunately. That would have been nice but I'm not sure how long HDMI cables hold up 4k/60FPS anyway and then I have to figure out the controllers reaching down there. I just found out that I'm going to be a first time Father so I feel like buying myself one last "big" thing for the foreseeable future. I've been thinking about buying a mini-itx PC with a 2080ti in it just to play the odd game in 4k on my TV easily. I fee like I'm nuts for doing this and there HAS to be a better solution than dropping > €2000. Any tips or recommendations on what I can possibly do? I feel like I'm spending for the sake of it and having two strong PCs seems like massive overkill tbh. Another solution is upgrading my Samsung TV to have Steam streaming at 4k built in.

Thread Dark Souls games should have an easy mode
To those saying what's the harm. Let me explain part of the beauty of Dark Souls. Fighting Ornstein and Smough for hours, thinking they are the hardest bosses you've ever faced in a video game. Thinking you'll never ever beat it. Thinking it's absolutely impossible. But you do end up beating it. And my god does it feel good. It's a massive rush and a feeling that only the Dark Souls games can bring. I guarantee you that this feeling would be hugely diminished with the introduction of difficulty modes. You could try best them for an hour and then lower the difficulty and beat them. Would it feel the same? God no. I played through Dantes Inferno and loved it. It was also a hard game but the last boss stumped me and I turned the difficulty down for him and beat him. I'm still annoyed at myself for doing that. You'd completely take away form the Dark Souls experience by introducing these things. Dark Souls was designed to be hard. It's supposed to be hard in purpose! That's how it just is. It's all part of the experience.

Thread Dark Souls games should have an easy mode
Dark Souls initial burst of appraisal was because of its singular difficulty and how it drifted away form that "norm" at the time of its release, which was games hand holding you through everything and games being too easy. Dark Souls wouldn't have been nearly as praised if it had an included easy mode. The game is what it is because of its set difficulty. You can use the game to make it easier by using things like summons instead of using difficulty modes to change background values you never see. That completely takes away from the core of what is Dark Souls. It just makes it not Dark Souls to be honest.

Thread This Christmas can be awesome for kids
Hey all, I don't want this to be a "How great is Nintendo?" thread (because I love my PS4 too!) but I'm basing this thread on my own past memories with Nintendo hardware! This Christmas can be potentially great for kids. I was thinking about it yesterday when I was playing Let's Go Pikachu. Some kids might wake up this Christmas to a Nintendo Switch along with Smash Brothers and Let's Go Pikachu. I know I'd have absolutely lost my shit waking up to something like that when I was young, it would have been amazing! And then on top of that they potentially have BOTW and Odyssey to look forward to too. One of my fondest memories is waking up on Christmas to a Nintendo Gamecube and Super Smash Bros Melee and Super Mario Sunshine. It was such an amazing Christmas. Me and my brother poured hours upon hours into the GC and we loved it. All my cousins would come over and we would play Smash Bros for what felt like months, it really did create such amazing memories. Same happened when I was really young with the Nintendo 64. We woke up to GoldenEye 007 and Banjo Kazooie. So many hours was put into the MP of GoldenEye. This is part of why I love Christmas. Just seeing the joy that some of these games can create. Having Smash Bros and Let's Go Pikachu would have been an absolute blast when I was young and I think it would have been just as good as when I woke up to that GameCube!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for me. I initially put 20 hours into the game and dropped it, just wasn't getting into it. Went back to it a few months later, everything clicked and I got hooked. Fast forward 150 hours later and I love it! Persona 5: Slowly but surely getting into it. I feel like I need more time per session for this whereas Xenoblade was much easier for pick up and play. I beat the first palace and I'm finally starting to really enjoy the game although I am worried about how easy Normal difficulty will be (Hard was just too RNG for me). Dragon Quest XI: Have about 15 hours in on Draconian Mode so far. I really enjoy it but the god damn music is making me not play the game, like, for real. Not the , I'm not as prone to that as others but the god damn looping of the over-world music! It feels like it loops every 20 seconds on repeat. It's driving me nuts!

Good lord I wrecked Diablo on Master Difficulty. Level 64. With a very strong weapon, Necromancer does tons of damage. I send in Bone Golem who does weapon damage % and health bars just disintegrate. Onto the expansion content! Going to plough through thag and I'll definitely be over level 70 then. When I beat the expansion act and the story is fully done, can I switch to Adventure Mode with the same character?

Salvage gear at the blacksmith instead of selling them for salvaging mats. Upgrading the blacksmith let's you craft hgiber level gear. I just crafted a bunch of level 50 gear to replace my old level 40+ gear. It's dead useful for replacing gear on the old pieces you have.

Does the world/enemies scale with you? I'm on Act 2 (near-ish to the end I think) and I'm level 40 on master difficulty and I'm still absolutely tearing through everything. Having lots of fun mind you. Bone Golem followed by Corpse Explosion pushes out insane damage.

This is the way I am currently looking at it. Now that companies are now making public statements which look to be quite serious, I'd imagine that if it's fake he will have to come out and say it as things are going too far now. On the flip side, him saying nothing now may him be trying to protect himself after leaking this.

Is there risk of making the game too easy by doing tons of side-quests instead of progressing through the main story? I'm on the end of Chapter 5 and was kicking my ass to be fair and I was like 10 levels ahead of it. I just don't want to make that distance too high by the end of the game.

Fuck me. 30 hours in and I just accidentally re-discovered that I can do a Chain Strike in battle. I even pressed the damn button by an accident and was sitting there with my mouth hanging opening being like "wtf is going on?". I think I finally have a grasp of all the combat systems up to my point of the game (start of Chapter 5). The only thing I still kind of have issues with is the topple/launch mechanic thing. I know it's supposed to start with topple but I can never remember what's after that and it always feels like I don't have enough time to change move. EDIT: Omfg I forgot I can lure enemies too. So many hours of being ganked could have been avoided.

Sounds like you are Warp Striking in and allowing yourself to get hit. A lot of enemies can hit through your attacks (as in, they don't get stunlocked). Try better keep an eye on their movements and time X to dodge their attacks instead of mashing your own attacks. If too many crowd around you, warp to a warp point and then warp strike back to the outter perimeter of enemies.

1. Not really no. Depends on what way the physical store price their games. Gamestop is nearly always more expensive for physical. 2. 2 joycons, strap attachements for them. The joycons don't need a charging dock as they charge when connected to the switch while the switch is in it's own dock. 3. Go for the proper official pro controller. It's an amazing controller in both build quality and battery life. You'll have to charge it like once every 3 months.
