Did you genuinely change your mind, or were you just messing with me?

I changed my mind, but there was still something that bothered me which I couldn't pinpoint. The Stanford link from someone else helped, summarizing that free will is still a very contested topic in both neuroscience and philosophy. There were also many different interpretations and the one I liked the most was a distinction between free will and free action. The latter grants that humans do make choices.

If you had brought up such a distinction, our discussion would have probably moved faster. There may be plenty of thoughts happening in the brain that the consciousness can't control, but there is control over decisions, especially ones that involve morals in one way or another.

I guess it sort of depends on what you mean by control. In the end, all the decisions are still yours, and you are shaped by your knowledge and experiences, which form what you base your decisions on.

I've never seen so much insecurity concentrated in a single space. E3 really brings out the worst in people. It's exhausting.

Anyway, Breath of the Wild. Yea or nay?

So far I haven't seen or read anything concerning about BotW, but I didn't watch more than the trailer. It's certainly not a "nay". A "yay" would go hand in hand with spoiling things, so let's leave it at "I have more faith in this game than Skyward Sword".

on 16 June 2016

Then I would gladly spoil it to you.

on 16 June 2016

Fair enough. As much as I enjoyed Skyward Sword, it suffered from being so straightforward. It appears like we're getting a larger, more open-ended adventure in BotW, which I think is good news.

on 16 June 2016

I was never at a point where I wouldn't buy the new Zelda, because even Skyward Sword was still a good game. I don't need to be convinced.

on 16 June 2016

Oh, I'm not proselytizing. I'm just curious about your perspective.

The previous reply was for Pavolink. Your post inbetween hadn't shown up when I was typing it.

Why do you ask such a thing?

Because you are missing the fun. Also you would think this would be the perfect time for one of your lovely threads.

on 15 June 2016

I had no internet access yesterday and there's also Euro 2016 going on. I have to catch up on things, although there isn't really much interesting stuff. It's business as usual for the most part.

It looks like I still have all the same Friends on the new 3DS. The Fire Emblem data may have been tied to the system, but I still have the same friend data.

Speaking of, did the game arrive yet?

I got the game last week, finished Birthright and started Conquest.

on 10 June 2016

Wasn't Birthright just.....great?

on 10 June 2016

Yes, very much.

on 11 June 2016

Seriously though, the game was quite hard despite playing on normal. And by hard I mean that there was a serious threat of dying. I think it was because I shuffled my units a lot and went with easy optional battles to round out the support conversations. I had hardly any units at or above level 20/5 when I got to the final few chapters and some of those characters hadn't been blessed by the RNG for their level ups. Half the work was done by my avatar (solo) and Ryoma (paired up) while the rest of the bunch had to be moved around more cautiously. I certainly didn't feel overpowered towards the end of the game.

Conquest feels already better and I am not even halfway through. Both in story and map design. I do wonder about that defense mission at the port though. Takumi as the boss has a droppable item, but his bow can hit on a distance of 1 and 2, and he's incredibly powerful for that point of the game. The item drop suggests that he is beatable, but who would get the job done? The item drop isn't even good (an elixir IIRC), but it's a matter of being able to do it.

on 11 June 2016

Ah yes, I love that map. Conquest has quite a few good ones, and really only one stinker.

Takumi is beatable, as are his subordinates (though Oboro is a bitch and a half). Effie, Arthur, and/or Silas should have enough defense/HP to survive and wear Takumi down, especially if Effie and Arthur are supporting each other. The trick is usually getting Effie down there fast enough, which requires not using her for a turn or two. There's a brief window when it should be okay to shuttle her with two faster characters for a turn, usually after Hinata suicides against Silas and/or Camilla, but it was a risk because of the constant reinforcements.

on 11 June 2016

I'm surprised to hear you had difficulty with Birthright though. I suspect you got RNG screwed, because even on Lunatic I only had one map where I had to sweat through the start (the map where you pop up in the middle of the enemies' training and are surrounded by high level promoted units)

on 11 June 2016

Well, the port map should be a lot easier the second time around when I know where and which enemies spawn. I think I had two turns left when I cleared the west side and four characters were over there, but none of them stood any chance against Takumi, so they remained idle. I had moved Effie to the east after starting with the west, because of Oboro (who I ultimately didn't manage to kill). Towards the end I had to retreat because the pegasi headed past my units to reach the point I had to defend. That wrecked my strategy, because I assumed that the pegasi would attack my units.

As for Birthright, some of the difficulty probably also stemmed from my impatience. I cleared the last few maps in 5-8 turns, but most units weren't durable enough to really move at that pace, making them fall further behind in EXP. It wasn't so much "how do I clear the map at all", but rather "how can it be done as a group effort and fast".

on 11 June 2016

Keep in mind of course that that was simply how I did it, but it was effective. I think using Silas, healed by Elise, should probably get the job done effectively too, although Takumi is much more powerful as a foe than a friend. As for Oboro, I found Camila made fairly short work of her, but even then Camila will take her lumps, so make sure Camila doesn't get mobbed.

on 11 June 2016

And yes, one of the many problems I had with Birthright was that too many of the maps were simply too big and open, without many conditions to deter you from simply making as many units as possible into mounted promotes.

Hey Rol, you still watch Supergirl? If so, what episode are you on?

I checked recently, 13 episodes should have aired by now. Which means that there are seven left if I remember correctly.

on 04 June 2016

That's right.

Today's lesson: Football is about scoring more goals than your opponent. Wales didn't get discouraged by the early 0:1, then they didn't park the bus after getting the deserved equalizer. They continued to play football....
