Smash Bros got Updated

They've really improved the graphics! They've got an opening cinematic, Fox has his reflector, and his up-B is nicer-looking! And most importantly, ledge-grabbing!

Also Corrin and Bayonetta are out but I can't mess with them 'til the weekend.

Money

If you had told me a couple months ago that, as a poor college student, I would be spending eight bucks on yoyo lube, I wouldn't have believed you. Especially if you also told me that Twilight Princess HD, great new Bionicle sets, and the Majora's mask remake I still haven't played would be competing for that money.

But you can't use videogames or Lego while walking to and from classes.

D&D Characters

Posted by Obsessionist , Jan 23 2016 · 66 views

Currently Playing: Zizelkatzeka "Zizel" Nindu'ain, Grey Elf Psion (Shaper). Eager to become a world-renowned sculptor, Zizel services his keen capitalist instinct with persuasive Psionic powers and +13 to Craft(Sculpture). Has a thistle plant named Gunther who he's convinced holds psionic secrets and a Psistone named Zeka who has the feat Light Armor Proficiency.

1st Ever Character: Fado Kooloo-Limpah, Gnomish Druid. Had a Camel named Molgera. At level two, died, then was resurrected through having his soul and body combined with that of a young red dragon. The party later killed him after the dragon took over his consciousness.

Previous Character: Reic Trigmond, Human Wizard. Played two sessions with this guy.

Other Previous Character: Eustace Trigmond, Human Ardent. Ardents are the Psionic equivalent of Clerics, but instead of being devoted to a god they're devoted to universal concepts. Having killed his father, Reic Trigmond, in a freak accident, Eustace was devoted to Murphy's law and constantly expounded on the futility of it all. As an Ardent ability, Eustace regained Power Points any time he critically failed at something.

The best D&D party

Posted by Obsessionist , Jan 19 2016 · 123 views

So I'm DMing a D&D 3.5 game with six players. Here's the deal:
  • None of them are RPG gamers.
  • Five out of six are girls.
  • They are totally oblivious to all the fantasy tropes and D&D traditions they are constantly throwing out the window.
  • They are totally oblivious to how incredible their total lack of metagaming is.
One player is Kowski Bronwyn Arcana, the Whisper Gnome Halfling. Normally Whisper Gnome would be a very cheesy race--mechanically, they're one of the best 0 LA races in the game. She chose them because she liked a description of Whisper Gnomes she saw on Wikipedia. She didn't even realize there would be mechanical benefits until I told her.

Kowski doesn't steal things. She's a rogue who developed her stealth skills so she could do good deeds without being thanked.

Concrete is a half-elf ranger. She cares deeply for the Orc populations and is constantly trying to help the poor Orc farmers. Her favored enemy is Animals because those are what most often threaten said Orcs.

Kowski once accidentally one-shotted an Orc in a dungeon. Concrete immediately brought the Orc's body back to his family and offered her condolences. Kowski went into town, purchased a casserole, and left it on the Orc family's windowsill during the night.

Redwynn is a Dwarf barbarian. Illiteracy is usually a class feature of Barbarians. Here's an excerpt from her backstory, written by the player:

When not working, Redwynn usually retires to a cave within the Scar, which requires a bit of a climb to get to. In this cave, she’s hoarded quite a few books, it’s important to her that she’s well read as most people assume she isn’t even literate. She also enjoys writing poetry during her stays in the cave, although it’s not very good.



Just... No metagaming at all, genuine and continued remorse for everyone they've harmed, and (usually) a great deal of respect for the city authorities. I find it hilarious and touching in turns.

What? No, the original trilogy.
  • I can see why people love this so much, it's excellent worldbuilding.
  • Fantastic props/sets/aesthetics.
  • Oh, so that's what <insert Star Wars minifig> is based on.
  • Seriously, everything is these films has been Lego-ized. TLG and AFOLs are thorough.
  • Now I can wear those Darth Vader socks I got for Christmas.

Season of Getting

Posted by Obsessionist , Dec 29 2015 · 81 views

Cliche as loot posts are, I think my first foray into Steam gaming warrants mention.
  • LEGO Doctor Who Ideas set. That Tardis is fantastic!
  • Star Wars T-Shirts and socks. I still have yet to watch any Star Wars movies.
  • Two pairs of suspenders and a very cool bow tie.
  • The 9th/10th Doctor's sonic screwdriver.
  • Bedding.
  • Ice scrapers.
  • A heavy-duty tackle box for LEGO storage. Should be easy to pack some essentials into and take to college.
  • Steam games purchased with Christmas money:
  • Undertale, which has been hilarious so far. Love the "battle" system, love the writing, love the music. I want a sequel made with a full development team.
  • Portal. Possibly the best $2 I've ever spent.
  • Portal 2.
  • Bastion, which ~Shockwave~ recommended a while back.
  • Skyrim + DLC. Makes me wish I was playing D&D.
  • Final Fantasy VII. Not just because Cloud is in Smash, I promise.
  • Pajama Sam in No Need to Hide when it's Dark Outside. A true classic.
I'm considering picking up Half-Life while it's cheap as well.

Today's Incredible Releases

Posted by Obsessionist , Dec 18 2015 · 107 views

1. Critical Role (Twitch-streamed D&D with voice actors, stellar roleplaying, a magnificent DM, and production values) just minutes ago finished streaming, for the first time, an illustrated narration of their 2.5 years of pre-stream adventures. I was so hyped for this project. It did not disappoint.

2. A new Star Wars which rudely pulled people away from Critical Role.

Smash Brother Direct

Posted by Obsessionist , Dec 15 2015 · 119 views

I'm excited to get more characters, no matter who, just to enjoy Smash with them. That said, I'm pretty meh about Bayonetta and Corrin. I'm not a huge fan of either franchise.

Both new characters look like the most visually extravagant thus far, so that's cool.

I'm not that into Mii Fighters, but excellent new costumes. I know a lot of people will enjoy Geno, Knuckles, and Tails.

Well done, Sakurai. That was a fitting send-off.
