I actually rather dislike soda in general.  I don't understand how people drink so much of that stuff.  Just give me water...

Love Live players, have you guys tried the new event yet?  It just started.  You're probably sleeping or something...

It's a completely different format from previous events...and I don't like it.  It's a competitive format where you go up against three other random players on a random song.  Everyone gets some points for completing it, but for the best rewards you need to score better than the other three players.  The problem is scoring is so dependent on how good your cards are.  Playing on hard I was literally in a situation where all four of us got full combos...but I got last place because my cards just weren't as good.  There was nothing I could have done.

Maybe I'll just play on medium and beat up the newbies.  I seemed to have no trouble taking the top spot there.  People who have been playing for a while seem to have mostly flocked to hard, not surprisingly...

How'd you even get an idolized SR, anyway?  Just dumb luck?  Seems to me the odds of getting two of the same SR are way too small...

I have one UR (not idolized) and I got her to 80 but it took a while.  Actually I think even that is worse than an idolized SR because the gap between levels is bigger (or at least it felt bigger...).

There are actually a lot of troll-ish responses available in this game.  I'm sort of curious what happens if you go full-out troll for the whole thing...

Want a daypass for premium membership?  CR keeps giving them to me to give out to people but I never do anything with them...

So, to anyone playing Love! Live! School Idol Festival, we've talked favorite idols, but what songs do you guys dig?

So far, my favorites are Natsuiro Egao de 1, 2, Jump!, Mermaid Festa Vol. 1, and Aishiteru Banzai

Snow Halation all the way.

Warm milk on cereal?  The heck?  That's a thing?

So, its a full blown action RPG now.

Now?  It was always supposed to be an action RPG, even back when it was called Versus.

Also, you guys should read this interview.

I still like to bring up and read this unfinished gem every once in a while: http://www.rpgfan.com/boards/index.php?topic=8002.0
I had WAAAAAY too much fun writing Taressa.  Just like the story evolved from something stupid into something really good, Taressa evolved from merely being sexy fanservice to being a really cool and badass character.  

Oh man, I had forgotten about that thread.  That was awesome stuff.

I think the "easy" tag for harmony is just a product if how hard SSSC was.


I have a confession to make: I never actually played SSSC.  The PSP game was my first time playing a Lunar game so there's is zero nostalgia clouding my vision here.  When I say that I found it ridiculously mind-numbingly easy I'm comparing it to other RPGs in general.  The game was a cakewalk, and not in a good way.  The easiness plus the slow speed everything moved at would just put me to sleep if all I had to focus on is the game.  And if a game is so boring it can't keep me entertained when I'm not multitasking then there's something wrong with it...

not youtube, but I think you'll appreciate this:


That is the saddest 'cooking' video I've ever seen...and I don't mean the music.

This topic seems to come up every now and then but am I really the only one who couldn't stand the PSP Lunar remake?  The combination of being absurdly insultingly stupidly mind-bogglingly easy, painfully slow combat animations, and the awful load times made playing it a complete chore...

This is not even an exaggeration:  I would start a battle in that game, select my actions (the game's one saving grace was that you queued all your actions for the turn ahead of time), and the put the PSP down and do something else while I waited for it to finally be my turn again.  Not even looking at the screen, because nothing that happened actually mattered.  I could win those fights in my sleep.  And I could read a few pages in a book before it was my turn again since everything took so fucking long.

Fun times.

When humans created the atomic bomb, there were concerns that such a weapon would ignite the entire biosphere of the planet, but the people behind it detonated it anyway, and said afterwards "I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

This is one of those myths that just won't die.  Well, I suppose it depends on what you mean by 'concerns'.  Teller raised the possibility of a sustained nuclear fusion reaction of nitrogen in the atmosphere, but at that point it was just a hypothetical idea.  He saw that there was a possible reaction but he had no idea if the energy transfer would be enough to actually make it happen.  Even so it was a troubling proposition so Bethe did the calculation and basically concluded no way.  Not even close.  Teller agreed too.  (And It should also be noted that Teller had a long history of, shall we say 'optimistic' opinions on how easy it would be to achieve nuclear fusion...)

So yes, the possibility was raised and then it was debunked, long before anyone actually exploded a nuclear bomb.  Nobody considered this to be a serious concern when the actual testing happened.  Of course you can ask what if Bethe's calculations were wrong, but they were made with worst case assumptions and it still didn't even come close.  In fact we know now that fusion is a lot harder to achieve than the assumptions used in that calculation.

Here's something fun, an actual paper on the subject.  Yay freedom of information.

I just object to the idea that the scientists in the Manhattan project were somehow flippant about the possibility or that they really didn't know what was going to happen until the bomb was actually detonated.  And given that you brought this up in the context of talking about Hojo...you really seemed to be implying just that.

And that quote by Oppenheimer was referring to the destructive power of nuclear weapons in general.  It doesn't have anything to do with igniting the atmosphere...

Event SR are weaker than normal SR.

Is that actually true?  They seem about the same to me...

Of course scouting gives you a shot at URs, but those are extra rare.
