So the guy telling him to press the power button was obviously trolling.

It appears you were too hasty when you made that allegation.

Well it says it only works when using Wii menu or software but when playing WiiU games it will turn off the console.

It's a common joke. The comment said "hold down power button and choose to turn off gamepad screen". Maybe he just mixed up power and home button.

Here, have a shitty meme edit

 Just watched Phil's recent video. How come everytime he does these fundraisers, there is always something else counter intuitive to him getting out of debt is happening? Last year when he was on the verge of losing his house due to taxes he got the money and immediately moved his girlfriend in and brought her all this stuff to get settled. This year its a trip to Connecticut which each passing day seems like its less about visiting his parents and more about taking Kat to all the places he took his ex- girlfriend.

Then he say's if he moves into apartment, the internet will be shared so the quality of his streams will suffer. What? Never heard of paying for an internet service and it gets shared with all the other neighbors. Last time I checked, I can have Xfinity and my neighbor can have AT&T. Theres nothing shared about it unless you deliberately make your wifi unpassworded. Plenty of streamers bigger than Phil have no problems and live in an apartment.

He goes into saying he wont have an office to set up his stuff up like the soundproofing. First of all, that soundproofing configuration he has does nothing. I cant count how many times Ive heard ambient noises around the room or Phil's toilet being flushed. Plus its kind of pointless to have quality sound when you're burping and crushing water bottles into the mic. Second, Phil is in a spare bedroom and calling it an office. You could do the same thing in an apartment. 

Lastly, he say's if he sells the house and moves it will be time consuming and take away from his streams. He literally moved across the country and had no problems back then, though he wasn't streaming, there are plenty of ways to work out getting content to his fans. Just have to be creative. Now its too difficult to move across town?

All the reasons he brought up seem futile. I understand selling his house would be a huge blow to his ego, but he's not the first person to downsize his lifestyle because a change in finances. Plus, the main reason his taxes are much higher because he made more money. Whats going to happen this time next year? Not to mention there has been no hard evidence, paperwork, or even a solid number of any of his tax problems. Just using last years fundraiser's "success" as an example, the only thing I know is he got the money in January, moved Kat in Febuary, asked for more money in March and April, then sometime last fall he said he still used $10,000 in credit to pay his taxes. Real shaky.

I'll support by just watching but there's too many plot holes to invest my hard earned money to this.

Or course when they are already there he wants to make use of the time and show her places. It's understandable they want to make a little vacation out of it. No need to make a big deal out of it.

People say all the time how shitty American Internet is. And when he moves into a rented apartment he has to use their lines and provider.

The foam is against echo from the wall not about soundproofing.

Since he works from home he could be able to write off a bunch of living expenses from taxes.

It's shared in the sense that most/all people living in the complex have shared bandwidth. If there isn't enough bandwidth and/or too many people are eating up too much at any particular moment, it will slow down for everyone for a time. 

That said, you can have good internet in an apartment. I used to stream/upload from an apartment and it was fine. I'd imagine it can vary greatly from complex to complex.

You can still do sound treatment (cutting out echoes, etc) in an apartment with the panels he's using now. Sound proofing would be a good bit more difficult I'd imagine and should only be necessary if he was somewhere there was a lot of outside noise which is very possible in an apartment. Unless his neighbors are very noisy all the time, the overall sound quality change would be unnoticeable by the vast majority of his audience.

I dont have a problem with him visiting other places. I have a problem with the trips whole narrative changing. Go back and look at the Christmas video where he is talking about his parents. He said his dad has a heart condition and can barely move while his mother is going through some things too. Then come to find out they are working. Unless they are from Krypton, I don't see how work is possible under those conditions. So somewhere there is some misinformation.

Im in America, many of the worlds top streamers are in America. As long as you have a reputable ISP, the internet is fine. Apartments usually have options when it comes to ISPs, and Phil is in Seattle, one of the most tech forward cities outside of Silicon Valley. Trust me, internet is not that big of problem as Phil is making it out to be.

Making it pointless right? There are soundproofing options for Apartments. As I said it really doesn't matter when you're crushing waterbottles into the mic.

And he still can't pay them. Sell the house, lower your price of living. He'll be alright.

Even if this is true, what does it matter to DSP? He got big on Youtube in an apartment. He was streaming fine back then. Nobody comes to DSP for the quality, they come for the entertainment. As long as he's entertaining and the game is watchable, it doesnt matter.

All utterly pointless if you regularly crush waterbottles into the mic anyways.

@TrashCanJuice lol just turn off your brain :biggrin:

I know alot of fans do exactly this. They just watch the content and enjoy Phil's stream while avoiding his talks about money and problems. But its gotten to the point where every single stream is about money and its unavoidable. 

I wish I could turn off my brain, but what you're asking is for me to be purposely stupid. That I cannot.

I cant even get away with that anymore because he regularly holds Chill streams at night which are pretty much extended prestreams with gameplay. The only time I can really watch Phil is at night nowadays.

The 'soundproofing' and the acoustic foam are obviously perpetually into effect; the 'water-bottle crush' is just a punctual wonderful experience, that only happens rarely, so this example is not ideal for your argument.

Yes, I don't have enough information to refute anything else you said, however, I think that you're speculating too much in some cases.

Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon is out tomorrow, anyone know if those games are good?

As someone who's played all the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games, I say they're good. No idea how the story would be for Chocobo, but I enjoy what I play. Good story helps a lot.

I heard gamers and final fantasy fans, say that game series is nice. The older games that is. The series has also been known, for its cuteyness and storyline too. It's possible, this new installment might follow in the epic footsteps, of the original games. 

Gasp! Magic girl Shiroma, is in this game too? Cool!:smile:

Nintendo had their Nindie event today, and it was followed by a sale on Indie games on their eshop. Some pretty good stuff in there, I grabbed Blaster master 2 and the Ancestrial edition of Darkest dungeon(I'm doomed).

Haven't had as much time with DMCV as I'd like, but I suppose I'll try for some of the trophies next. Also some thoughts/neat things:

- You can EX-Act/Max-Act while doing Nero's air taunt

- V's cane can parry certain attacks

- According to the loading screen, the time slow bubble from Ragtime can slow bullets, then when they're released, they have the potential to cause multiple hits. Rawhide's Snatch does more damage, and the DT version can pull in staggered bigger enemies

- I wasn't using Punch Line to its full potential in the demo. The circle attack isn't just good for aerial/big foes like I assumed from the animation. Do it in right in front of enemies and you can launch them, then follow up with some hidden attacks (triangle plus forward, left, or right). This gives me more reason to enjoy Punch Line. Not straightforwardly boring but also useful at the same time, and quite fun to use for style once you get used to it (also, riding your rocket arm while using Hold on a helpless medium sized enemy is amusing imagery). Still my favorite Devil Breaker but I need to play with the others some more. 

- I wonder if I can get used to using Nero's new Buster Knuckle system intuitively while also using Exceed. It seems perfectly viable to play without using it, but it's also a free bonus if you do. It does feel similar to Exceed in a sense, but I hear there are differences like having more potential windows of activation, allowing you to use multiple knuckles in one attack. I suppose the punishment for mistiming is getting the regular Buster attack, with all its frames of vulnerability

Wonder how big the combo scene for this game will be. Not aware of huge combo exhibitions yet, but I guess players are still figuring things out.

Spoiler

 

I quite like this player's use of time bubbles to slow down falling enemies. Also, the timing for the final time slow and the enemy falling into the shoryuken was a perfect way to end it. 

A short Dante-focused one:

"S-rank" being one homogeneous rank in DMC5 does confuse the matter a bit on YouTube if you're looking for "perfect" grades, in that it doesn't guarantee that you'll see every sub-section of a mission S-ranked during the final breakdown (or even contain any S rank at all for a sub-section), nor the no damage bonus. I'll have to make do. 

It's still weird how the ranking works in that it sometimes seems like you're doing well during a sub-section but only get A rank for that section overall or something. 

Also, instant revving applies to Nero's ground taunt too, the one where he points the tip of his sword to the ground and revs the handle.
