The purpose of dmc combat is, simply: expression. You can use any number of of your tools to do effectively kill an enemy, it's about picking which tools and linking them together.
Its just a difference in style. KH2 boss fights feels more like a puzzle then a fight. DMC feels like a fighting game in practice mode. Both are valid, but I feel that kh is too samey. I unironically like the ability to switch keyblades in 3 because it alleviates some of the sameyness.

Watching the latest NY shooter video got me thinking, how if at all possible could one survive a mass shooting? The first lady after he got out was doomed. The others seemed to be stuck with normalcy bias for a few seconds.

Is it better to run or to play dead, take cover?
Is normalcy bias bad, better to make a fool out of yourself overreacting to a nothingburger than to stand there in an actual shooting
Should one always walk behind some kind of cover in burgerstan? Seems like it is so common might as well

Very good game that made my opinion turn completely on it over the last month. I used to think its the worst Fromsoft game after it chewed me and my old-gen PC with Guardian Ape and Spirit Monk. But after Elden Ring I said to myself "fuck it, one more try", played it from the start with good framerate this time and… Its the best Fromsoft game. It is amazingly fun to do the parry duels, and it feels really rewarding. I think to an extent I might just had something click in my head (literally didn't rage a single time, even though Owl, Owl (Father) and Demon of Hate all killed me at 1% health/poise on them left once), because now I love this game. Still think its bullshit how finite some consumables are, but that wasn't too much of a biggie, since I pracitcally didn't use any of them outside of pellets and flasks. And it really felt good that I managed to beat the final set of bosses without much issues. One-shotting True Corrupted Monk after being forced to learn for a good few dozen on Owl (Father) was insanely rewarding. Now the game is my new stressball as I give in a few shots at the chalange modes from time to time. I hope one day they port Bloodborne to PC, because I also used to look down on it for seeming too fast, but after Sekiro I'd really love to give it a shot.

Have you guys ever heard of the Littoral Combat Ships? Of course not, cause they're useless hunks of junk designed when the US decided they needed a wet F-35.

In all seriousness though, the LCSs are not only a failure in engineering of the individual ships and classes but also in initial concept. The LCS came about as a response to a need for small, fast, CHEAP ships to perform non-combat duties such as ASW and minesweeping. Almost every country in the 80s-90s had their fleet of support vessels nearing the end of their lifespan and so were busily working on next-generation replacements.

In both the East and West the form of this next generation of ships took two forms: Hydrofoils based on the design of the HMCS Bras d'Or which had perfected the design of hydrofoils as far as stability was concerned, and ground-effect vehicles. Ground effect vehicles are basically hovercrafts, OR Ekranoplans. The Ekranonplans planned to take over support roles were ironically larger versions of the Luna class since the weird thing about GEVs is that the bigger they are, the easier they are to control and are cheaper to maintain, so bigger=better in every way.

So while the rest of the world was designing their next generation on cutting-edge technology that had been proven in the last generation, what did the US do? They out-sourced their shipbuilding programme to a fucking aircraft designer; Lockheed-Martin. Lockheed did exactly what every US military contractor does and essentially created this concept of a Littoral Combat Ship to be a shallow water frigate with a streamlined hull. As many of you are going to point out, that's just a regular frigate. Because that's exactly what it was. The LCS was just a rebranded frigate meant for shallow water operations in the Gulf near the Middle East, with special gimmicks such as modular combat systems, 2 engine types to propel the ships at 70 knots, and a low radar silhouette. The latter is absolute BS btw, since "low radar silhouette" has been disproven by the Zumwalt fiasco.

Anyways, the first class of the series, the Independents failed every single one of the mentioned requirements. The 2 different engine types, a gasoline AND diesel turbines, failed miserably because they forgot each engine type had different torque and as a result broke the ship's gearbox, so instead of 70 knots the top speed was a whopping 5 knots… you walk faster than that. The system modules? Turned out they builtPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The Atlant class is a budget Kirov, even during development it ran into problems with the hull form because it kept having to get smaller and trying to use them in an area that's smaller than the range of her P-500s where there aren't any other capital ships in a brown water environment is a stupid idea. It's the modern version of the Blucher in Norway.

>>1982
Because they expected the same out of the Atlants as a Kirov and even gave it the Flotilla leader designation despite being on the light side for a cruiser. It's essentially wanting the same for less, which put extreme pressure on how the ship actually handles. The hull form wasn't really ever fixed, they managed to make it stop flexing in heavy seas but not to the point of making it function as intented; that's why the P-500 tubes are above deck on the superstructure similar to Soviet patrol boats and escorts instead of imbedded in the hull which is the standard for Soviet cruisers since the hull was under enough stress already. The Atlants are the result of trying to pack a Kirov into a hull half the size, that's cheaper too rather than tempering expectations and making it a proper cheaper alternative.

Ironically I think it falls victim to the Battlecruiser curse. Battlecruisers were originally meant to only hunt cruisers, but because they had capital grade guns they got shoved into the capital ship role, the Atlants are the same. They're light cruisers, but because they're pocket Kirov's they're now flagships and Flotilla leaders, and this effected the class during the design process too. It's a class that given even a refit would perform well in another role, so saying that's just because of how they're used is a misnomer, since while technically true the ship's design and equipment is also at fault since it was rushed to fulfill its current role as a flagship for some of the smaller fleets. It's not an inherently bad design like the LCSs, just asking too much out of too small of a ship and that's stressing parts of the ship out way beyond the limit.

 No.1985

>>1983
>they expected the same out of the Atlants as a Kirov
Not really, it's meant to have similar fire-power on a smaller scale, but only as supplement to the Kirovs. The reason they're overstressed is because the Kirovs got mothballed and so did like half the Soviet fleet. If Russia could raise the Ukrainian ship of the same class (and the Moskva) they'd be able to more efficiently do this, so it's more a lingering fault of the Russian government from the 90s.
>gave it the Flotilla leader designation
Yes in areas not having Kirov's to lead and act as fleet centres, because they have the armament and defenses capable of doing so.
>that's why the P-500 tubes are above deck
<vertical launch tubes? What's that?
The hull is fine and the P-500 tubes are fine
>It's not an inherently bad design like the LCSs, just asking too much out of too small of a ship and that's stressing parts of the ship out way beyond the limit.
I'd argue that its fine as it had been and the Moskva is just a case of bad luck and sabotagae.

 No.1986

>>1985
Similar firepower on a smaller scale is exactly the problem, the Kirov's weren't as big as they were just for kicks, on ships space is a big premium, and trying to fit that much firepower in a ship half the size means you're going to have to cut corners, which again is fine but the with the Atlants they couldn't compromise. That's what's causing them to be overstressed, I'm not talking about wear-and-tear kind of stressed I am talking about the actual hull of the ship not being the right size to accommodate the missiles, FCS, communication systems for a Flotilla leader etc. Which once again would have been fine if not for the fact that late into their design period they had to tack on all the FCS and communication equipment. It can be a cruise missile cruiser or a command ship for a ship its size, not both. That's not an issue with how Russia operates them since they came out of the yard like this due to a runaway design process. And no, the P-500 tubes are NOT fine like that. On cruiser hulls and above missile tubes are meant to be uniform with the hull, this is because during fighting the superstructure is considered non-primary (That's part of the reason why the Moskva was lost because the superstructure burned to the hull, which for ships is 100% OK but the untrained crew thought the ship was sunk along with modifications in the 2000s that made her even more top heavy for such a light ship but anyways the sinking is largely secondary to the issues I have with it), so the launch tubes not being part of that for cruisers is important. Patrol boats, destroyers etc can have it since they're not meant to be at the centre of fire anyways and need every ounce of weight savings they can get, the P-500s being as they are is a sign of compromise due to construction constraints. Which is not the good kind of compromise in terms of capability but more a compromise in terms of its stability and integrity. It's one of the few Soviet designs that fell down this hole, the only other one I can name off the top of my head was the Udaloy II and that was a Russian modification of the Udaloy.

Why do programmers like to pretend to have very specific skillsets and knowledge, and call themselves "frontend developers", "Javascript programmers" or even "React programmers" when in reality their knowledge and skills are applicable to almost everything programming related and they could easily do the job of almost every other programmer? Is this some trick to get higher wages and segment the market or is it just some internalized helplessness instilled by recruiters looking for "the perfect match" and employers unwilling to provide training?

Machines and tools are different since they fit different scales plus in carpentry lots of materials and techniques are standardized so you can buy it processes from a third party.

In woodworking materials require a more detailed work, specific joinery, adhesives plus lots and lots of sanding.

Honestly after writing this I feel any difference I could list will not mean much but when you work on one and move to the other it does feel different.

Less about the parasocial more about the signal.

Less about subscribing to an individual podcast, more about listening to individual episodes and why that episode resonated.

Not videos. This is a chance for you to educate yourself while working, doing chores or exercising.

I'll go first. This episode of politics theory other was memorable because it made me reconsider the intersection of sex and politics, particularly as someone who sees themselves as becoming more skeptical about everything surrounding idpol as it's being co-opted and weaponized.

I really enjoy the Deprogram podcast. It's not particularly informative, it's just comfy. It's with Hakim, Yugopnik, and Second Thought.

Someone shilled it in the /isg/ and I've been listening to it since. Good for when you just want to chill.

I also listened to a bunch of History Of Philosophy Without Any Gaps. It is also comfy but requires more active listening. Great podcast.

Fair enough. For history of philosphy, the entire arc of Plato was really cool. They are very short episodes.

https://historyofphilosophy.net/classical/socrates-and-plato

Really any episode of a Platonic dialogue is a very fun listen. I liked Gorgias, Parmenidies, and the episode on erotic love. I don't agree with Plato, or rather I'm not a platonist, but his shit is very fascinating and thought provoking. The dialogues are literally dialogues between two or more smart characters making compelling cases for their arguments regarding the point at hand.

The dialectical method of exposition is a very powerful one which IMO has been largely lost. The book Gödel Escher Bach is a nice return to that tradition btw.

Regarding Deprogram, I recommend Episode 20, where the editor for Mint press is a guest. He has an interesting perspective on media that I haven't seen much outside Chomsky and an interesting book on Mexican think tanks I picked up once (Conocimiento y Poder, Alejandra Salas-Porras for the curious).

First of all even if there were any leftist haxxers they wouldn't be widely known (for obvious reasons?).

Second, barrier to entry and lack of any focus on this exact thing. In other words, programming communities are either apolitical or right-leaning, or that we communists ourselves usually just glance over it in favor of a more direct approach (organizing, strikes, protests, clubs, unions).

Third, we are very unorganized and there is lack of necessary structure. I mean it's good for attracting new members into the Leftist cause but the lack of internationally united socialist/workers' movement (Internationale) prevents us commies to successfully coordinate our actions in a way that it really matters or just have enough people in various numerous haxxing groups. There isn't enough people.

Though, I must agree with ya, comrade. We really lack the absolutely crucial media presence: Lenin, Liebknehct, Luxembourg and many marxists at the time were either relying on or were directly involved into the newspaper campaigns and articles, going as far as having a lot of their own newspapers (and it was at the time when it was the only medium of mass influence). Just Youtube videos or Jacobin wouldn't suffice. Besides, we don't even have proper AgitProp (stuff like creative design, posters, art). Many genuinely good anti-capitalist art pieces aren't even done by open communists but rather by attentive libs. This isn't cyberwarfare, but this involvement into internets culture is necessary too.

The pacing and focus of the story is a 180 from Worm. It's far slower and fixates more on characters dealing with trauma and the aftermath of Worm than it being nonstop conflict. If that interests you then you'll get more enjoyment than others did from it.

 No.25240

I really like the audiobook version of Worm, finished it recently(even with its flaws, I like seeing it get better over time-):
https://audioworm.rein-online.org/

I have a very strong aversion to most superhero stuff (there's stories and characters I definitely adore though throughout the years tho), and this hits a unique spot that I can definitely resonate with. I feel like the parahumans setting has much more potential than most works it shares a premise/genre with, and despite some of the flaws it has (need for editing, certain drags/confusing parts, etc.), it really stands out on its own. In terms of existing in the larger sphere of "capeshit", I'd go and say its one of the best creations in the entire premise, helped in a large part by the way the narrative presents itself. The protagonist and their interactions feel a lot more human than most heroes and villains in other stories, and the entire story takes on that lifelike element. The interludes (interlude 10x especially oh my lord) work really well, because they give a different perspective than the usual protagonist's narration, and can take crazy turns with that. It's also pretty cool that a lot of the main characters are young, but not in the usual youth that glamourizes high school life, quite the opposite in fact. As someone at a similar age to the characters by the end of the story, I can say they certainly feel and act similar enough to the way someone our age IRL would, especially if thrust in such a wacky superpowered premise and world like the one they're in. The sociopolitical part of the setting gives me somewhat similar vibes to Watchmen and early Spawn, especially with how the image of things presented by popular culture and media is incongruent with the reality that the characters actually live through. The criminality of many of the characters feels a lot more real in motivation, and the plot following "villains" as full-fledged characters is just a breath of fresh air. It sees the average "superhero" for how fucking deranged they'd actually be; it looks at what would happen if sociopaths, sadists, and emotionally stunted people got abilities that enabled them to act more on their tendencies, and its all so interesting. The use of powers is also a lot more grounded, and the way they're applied is certainly a lot more compelling than the average story, also in a weird way feeling almost shonPost too long.

I really enjoyed it. It was exciting and most of the characters were well written. The last arc was really exciting and the ending was good (though the end isn't exactly the happiest), and Taylor has really good development throughout the story. It does have problems, the biggest of which is its awful pacing. Some fights took way to long despite having little impact in the story, and the timeskip was poorly done and doesn't allow for you to get to know lots of the characters. It also could have done with an editor. But all in all I think it brings a lot to the table and I highly recommend reading it.

Russian missiles are bombarding the Ukrainians every day, on the other hand, the Russian Air Force is active primarily East of the Dnieper, and hasn't been seen much in the West outside of the early weeks when a few were shot down. If they were I'm sure Kiev and Lvov would be getting pounded even harder.

Admittedly I don't have any hard proof, I just guessed that NATO EW from across the border is almost certainly helping the Ukrainian air defenses West of the Dnieper. The Ukrainians may not even need to turn on their radar.

The U.S. is shipping 200 Vietnam-era M113 armored personnel carriers to Ukraine as part of a larger $800 million aid package. The tracked-vehicle will help transport Ukrainian troops from the rear areas of the battlefield to the frontlines – mobility for infantry that is badly needed.

Tax write off of about $1.500.000 each (Ukraine will pay 3% interest per month on those) and of course AMC or GE will get contracts to replace them with Bradleys, at a bargain cost of $3.500.000 each.

Hundreds of the 1001 confirmed bugs are STILL in the game to this day and might aswell never will be fixed but before I rant on about the bugs I’m gonna first complain about how mediocre the game started off as and still fucking is


The UI is a mess and clutters your screen with shit you only need to have a few functioning brain cells to understand. As for the rest of lifeless essays shit quests it goes without saying you might aswell have the game playing itself because it holds your hand on all of the still minimal amounts of content

There’s no fucking atmosphere at all making the game not scary in the fucking slightest. Seriously name one just one instance where you’ve seen anybody play fallout and say they ever felt scared, or sad about what goes on in the game and not at the game for how much of a fuckup it is

The AI is laughably retarded from the scorched to the raiders to the ghouls, they all behave like pathfinding zombies. Not even the zombies you’d find in games like left 4 dead 2 that do interesting shit like attacking each other or sneaking up on you. Just fucking lazy as shit pathfinding AI that walk in a line to kill you. Stalker is an over decade old fucking game and manages to portray how real bandits in video games would respond to fire fights with AI flanking you, changing positions, hiding, alerting others etc and the mutants get their fair share of love to with dogs running away when they’re too wounded or monsters hanging up on you in groups rather than attack you as individuals along with dispersing when injured to fuck up your aim. Fallout 76 has NONE OF THAT AND ITS RELEASED OVER A DECADE AFTER STALKER

The scorched beast is a literal not even bothering to at least reskin copy paste off the dragon model in Skyrim
that has all the same fucking bugs.

The models for all the rest of the enemies in this mediocre excuse of a game all look like aliens. You know how zombies in left 4 dead wore clothes based off their locations and had visible human features, no one not the scorched to the ghouls to the ai even have a design that looks even remotely human and there’s not even variations to those models.
The mutants don’t even look like mutated creatures they’re based off of st least in stalker a boar mutant looks like boar but with larger teeth and other junk in fallout a mutated cockroach looks like my grandma is see in a nightmare after smoking five lines of cocaine.

I just watched the new Batman movie, it's about as boring and derived as you'd expect. The villain is a real psycho, apparently he hates Bruce Wayne's father because of his scam charity orphanage where children froze to death and the villain himself grew up in, and tries to publicly reveal his father's ties to organized crime and political corruption. Luckily Batman eventually teaches him the true meaning of love and forgiveness before the villain is thrown into an insane asylum for the rest of his days, and the credits roll.

I also watched Memoria, which was just as boring and I have nothing to say about.

I watched "Old" (2021). It was pretty mediocre. Not abysmal, but just not good - M. Night Shyamalan might be one of the few directors who gets worse over time. Unlike his other movies, there was no typical twist, that revelation in the end can barely called anything like that, because you can see it from a mile coming.

The concept of aging rapidly isn't new per se, and not bad per se, but he didn't really know what to do with it. The only classical trope was lady obsessed with her own beauty going mad over aging, and then died in a horrific twisted way - that was the only really creepy scene. Other than that, the movie was surprisingly PG-13, they wouldn't even show a skeleton. Also, the main characters that escape will not be okay, imagine you are a 6 year old in the body of a 50 year old - you'd be diagnosed as clinically infantile and get a warden. The dialog was rather awkward and the ending felt weirdly anticlimatic - so they are doing those super secret experiments, but don't even have security?

If you have nothing else to watch you can give it a try. It's not bad but is just really kinda there, it doesn't really do anything with its premise.

If you are ever in the mood for a modern but classic gothic horror movie with a decent budget, beautiful gothic cinematography, evil landlords and dead peasant daughters, gipsy folklore and "tell don't show" creepy scenes that still come with decent effects and gore and body horror - give this one a try.

I bought a framework laptop because my previous one was so cheaply constructed that it literally disintegrated from use.

I quite like it. I'm not going to pretend that buying a product will solve any systemic capitalist evils like ending e-waste or granting a right to repair, but on a personal level, I'm hopeful to be able to avoid some common pitfalls with consumer products like disposability and planned obsolescence by being able to repair this thing myself or replace parts on it. Plus it seems pretty sturdily constructed in the first place. The keyboard's very crisp by laptop standards and is backlit (which is thoroughly unremarkable, but my previous laptop wasn't, because I lived in the stone age), the trackpad's nice, the screen is annoyingly glossy, though it is high resolution with a large color gamut. Hopefully they release a matte screen at some point. And being able to choose where the ports are on it is a bit of a godsend to deal with cable mess.

Also framework's planning to make some sort of marketplace to buy/sell secondhand parts, so you can buy used parts or sell parts to users once you're done with them to recoup some of their cost.

They're also trying to cultivate a market of third-party manufacturers to make parts and modules etc. and they're releasing the specs of their designs accordingly. Maybe it will make the laptop more flexible and less prone to vendor lock-in.
