I know that in the case of Dracula II, the scrolling speed was set with Japanese in mind. So lazy localizers are the ones to blame.

How the Marvel website is a terrible place to look for information about marvel comic characters and release history.

It's always been terrible, but when Disney took over, instead of fixing the site, they just slapped the movie actors faces all over everything on the same turd of a website.

If it's done for style reasons and the information being scrolled isn't actually that important, I'm fine with it.

By the same token, unskippable beginning scenes are always annoying. I know the story! I'm just playing the game again!!

On the topic of scrolling text and opening sequences (and little annoying things), you know about Twin Goddesses right?

If not then, enjoy the cringe :)

Hype.

Julia is marvelous, but the "just as fast as C++" thing is still rather misleading. First, people tout all the quality of life features it inherits from scripting. Next, they throw out these performance claims with no qualifiers.


Yes. As the author abandons the features of Julia and accepts more and more C++ inconvenience, the code gets faster. Probably should mention that you're using a corked bat. If I have to resist the temptation to use the features, it's a pretty big caveat.
https://flow.byu.edu/posts/julia-c++

Still a better tool than C++ for crunching numbers. I just hate the "Easy as Python and fast as C++" bullshit that everyone is spewing. That isn't really true and how could it be? You can't have both.

People who let the water run with no need when doing the dishes or washing their hands. As in, turn on the tap and wet their hands quickly, then apply soap AWAY FROM THE WATER WHILE IT'S GOING STRAIGHT INTO THE DRAIN AND THEY TAKE FOREVER LATHERING THEIR HANDS AND WASTING PERFECTLY CLEAN WATER, then they rinse and turn off the tap.

An in-law of mine has the habit of letting the water run while she's wiping the stove and counters, because she needs to rinse the rag or her hands from time to time. HOW ABOUT TURNING OFF THE TAP WHEN YOU DON'T NEED TO WET OR RINSE SOMETHING, YOU... YOU... NIMRODS????!!!! :evil:

People who insist on playing a game drunk, then bitching about how much the game sucks when they're failing because they've simply forgotten basic mechanics they were taught earlier.

Bayonetta, Chapter 3: flaming enemies show up that hurt you if you use basic melee hits on them outside of Witch Time after a dodge. Player insists on running up and repeatedly getting himself hurt by attempting to punch them and failing, claims terrible game mechanics, game isn't worth the $5 he paid, the game's too slow to respond to his dodges, etc. Also keeps stepping in the lava instead of going somewhere there's not lava. All this instead of:

a) Mash the fucking X button and gun them from afar.

b) Hold punch or kick buttons to shoot at them with combos from afar.

d) Rotate the analog stick 360 degrees and press punch or kick to again, shoot at them from afar.

There's more ways such as not sucking at dodging to deal with them, but there's at least 3 basic ways to fight them without needing perfect dodging the game explicitly tutorials you on at the start that he's not even attempting. FFS.

I hate that. For me, it's just as bad going to Netflix and having the full volume video playing while I'm trying to think of something to watch.

I seriously wish they would let us do an alphabetic list of all shows. Also on Steam like the OG interface used to have.

So Sony just sent me a nice eMail telling me they're changing the Playstation store. They're removing the ability to buy PS3/PSP/Vita games, you can still buy them on the game console or handheld itself. But what's pissing me off is they're removing the wishlist. Seriously? I was using that! I just bought something off it two days ago! Buncha ijits!

If you've ever owned a PS3 or PS4, you should know by now that user friendliness isn't Sony's priority.

Thanks for the warning though, I didn't get that mail, so I'll go in right now to note down everything I got on my wishlist.

The entire .co. domain. Who in the hell thought that was a good idea?

Visits are almost due to a typo. Why even have it? I have to block it outright, so nobody on the network can visit those sites, anyhow. It has no practical use outside of spreading badware.

I wasted a huge chunk of time trying to figure out why games were stuttering horribly despite having recorded just fine previously in OBS. It seems that when using Game Capture I have to make sure "Limit Capture Framerate" is checked off otherwise weird stuff occurs, such as DXX-Rebirth dropping to 31 FPS, or DOSBox stuttering like crazy. Maybe I accidentally unchecked it at some point and never realized? But I thought I had to resort to Windows Capture for everything since then.
