Not looking for Netflix and chill but you wanna play Helldivers? We’ve got a bunch of people together that seem to play semi-regularly rn and if you wanted to make friends hanging out is the first step

Fair enough, I also host dnd with some friends if you want to listen in, or if not don’t feel pressured.

But for all of us after high school, any new hobby will mean meeting established friend groups and will always be difficult, I understand the pain. I have faith in you finding new friends.

You mean dressing up someone as a political boogeyman and perpetuating a cult of personality for the sole reason of antagonizing another political party is NOT how you like to be seen through the lens of self reflection?

Crazy. But ultimately if someone decides “dark brandon” isn’t an image they want to perpetuate, fine - but don’t back off something because it “looks bad”, back off because you learned something, or your perspective actually changed.

This is after they put DRM in games, by patch, years after some of their launches. They did a little more than ‘not meet expectations’ in more than one way

Won’t someone think of the poor billionaires!

Agreed. If a game like zelda totk can run on the switch there’s plenty of life left and we don’t need a switch 2.

I love how the source meme is probably the first high quality tier 4 meme in a long time. So much goes into understanding it.

spoilerFor those that havent seen the term, Tiered memes require knowledge of an earlier meme, the higher the tier the more memes go into it. In this case 1.scrat from ice age 2.the American police being trained to be afraid of everything 3.taylor Swifts jet 4.the actual event of the shooting In this meme though we’re referencing the Become Ungovernable, instead of Taylor swifts jet.

I love the internet meme makers. Long live the OC

We swapped the Taylor swift for Become Ungovernable, the original meme (linked in OP) has the nut falling from her jet

I’d like to see some kind of chart that compares Republican lawmakers who have voted against women/trans/gay rights, and subsequently been caught in controversy around sex with that specific group (anti-gay gets caught with a guy) VERSUS how many registered Democrat lawmakers in the same scenario.(anti-gay legislation, caught with dude type deal)

He got old enough not to care too much about appearances, and important enough that he didn’t have to dress-to-impress a boss, and started wearing what every dude really wants to wear.

(As a baseline rule) Stop fucking around with open license for DnD and (as a recommendation) make mlp/transformers great again and maybe your stock won’t slump. It’s not hard math. Hasbro keeps fucking with the dnd licence, their shows aren’t doing well, and they haven’t made a nerf blaster worth picking up in a hot minute (ultra didn’t do well).

They’ve kind of just lost their way it seems. Most of their toy lines rely on a cartoon to sell well (transformers) and that’s just not happening.board games are all classics but I can see those not selling well right now. They hold a lot of old IPs of yesteryear (trolls, jurrasic park, beyblade) , so what I see as a way forward is to start trying to tap nostalgia to hit the collectors market. Otherwise these IPs are dead in the water as they try to make the 15th beyblade show to try and make tops happen again - except for cheaper than ever before at the expense of quality.

I really like how far third party nerf blasters have come (worker, monkey mods XYL etc.) and really want to get into it, but I’m too old to play with kids and there’s no adult community here that would pick it up (as opposed to airsoft or paintball).

So I’m left with a nice ass blaster I spent $130 assembling, and can only plink around a small apartment with it

Your area doesn’t have a 40k community? That IS surprising and sucks to hear. Here’s hoping one springs up at a game store and you can warrggggh to your hearts content.

With the heavy plunger spring I suppose it really could be both

As a fresh-ish lemmite. It depends on what YOU are looking for out of it. A good example is “do I want to drive engagement for the sole reason of growing communities” in which case you just post to those communities. Leave softball comments on conversations. Easy stuff to prompt a followup comment “how does that work” “why does it work like that” even if you don’t care, because it prompts a followup-comment. Posts that are easy like “today I learned X thing” even though you didn’t, but if it’s super popular and a lot of people knew about it, it drives big comment chains. This type of person is in every single comment section at least once. You see their names as OPs constantly. High post engagement rate (more engaging vs just clicking on the post then off the post) promotes things to the front page. Or at least higher than the bottom.

If you’re looking for “honest” engagement then it’s going to be more like “how often is my comment a worthwhile contribution?” In these instances it’s follow-ups asking why X does a thing. Or answering someone else’s question. You see this person rarely, and their comments are paragraphs. They could be right or wrong but they often appear to know what they’re talking about. These people hang out in political subs (and other high controversy places) and drive conversation. Either they pick a side and defend it or are informing others how a system works.

Lastly is 2 opposite types. The ever-commenter who has 2k comments and no posts. They engage with EVERYONE as one of the above 2 types, even if it means they get downvoted or upvoted. This person will have a comment chain 35 comments long if people keep hitting Reply. Their counterpart is the ever-poster. They’ve got 2k posts and when you scroll they just the same post to 8 subs. Article about kid died in israel? They posted it in an Israel and Palestine sub, worldnews, news, a local news sub, politics, world politics, us politics, international politics, and noncredible defense. They post the same news article to every sub they can find. They rinse and repeat for each news article. This type of person rarely comments. These 2 people are the same but opposite sides of the spectrum.

Mathematically, I can see how it would always turn into a risk-reward analysis showing nuking the enemy first is always a winning move that provides safety and security for your new empire.

Oh Mrs turner. You best start believing in he-who-nukes-first-wins thought experiments. YOU’RE IN ONE!

But how else will a soccer mom driving her 2 precious children in nothing less than an 8 seater see where she’s going in a well lit city??

She NEEDED that upgraded suspension and if her headlamps don’t compete with Star Destroyer turbolasers she won’t be able to go anywhere!

Wake up on first alarm, can’t relate. My gf however, needs 85 alarms because she doesn’t Snooze, she just Dismisses.

I’m in favor of this as the replacement format

If this isn’t the right place I’ll move it to memes.ml. but I wanted my home lemmy to have a crack at some OC first
