  1. I live too far away, and I can just creep on people on Facebook if I’m nosey.
  2. I initially thought it was too early to discontinue, then I looked at when Windows 10 came out and went “oh… it has been out awhile…”
  3. Windows 7 and 8 haven’t been supported for years, and 8.1 won’t be once January rolls around. Windows 10 will be 10 years old in 2025 when Microsoft pulls the plug. You have to consider the age of the operating system, and the updates that get pushed to you are security updates. You can only patch something for so long or so much before you gotta let it go. When you’re not connecting the device to the internet, it’s not a big deal. When you are connected, you have malware to worry about, and that is always changing and evolving.
  4. My only issue with tutorials is when some games want to explain really stupid stuff to you. I understand when some tutorials can be "obvious" for veterans of a franchise, but is nice for newbies. Though some games like some of the Xenoblade games get really silly. I've never seen an RPG give you a tutorial on how to purchase items at a store, or how to equip equipment before. I was initially thinking "maybe they've got a ton of stuff in the store or equipment that needs explanation". Nope, it tells you "select the item you want to purchase, press A, and if you truly want to purchase it, press A to confirm". "Select equipment, select the piece of armor you want to equip, select A". Wow, never would have figured this out if I didn't have a tutorial.
  5. I tend to see overrated as a synonym for bad as the default across the internet. In the gaming community, it’s used more commonly towards the popular games, as those tend to also get high ratings. The music and film community reserves it for critical darlings, as the popular stuff doesn’t tend to get good reviews.
  6. Chrono Trigger and Radiant Historia both feature time travel as a main mechanic.
  7. You can do it on Youtube, or you can look at one of these sites: https://www.wix.com/blog/2018/11/podcast-hosting-sites/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=12188669214^114296906861&experiment_id=^^530595868227^^_DSA&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIzrrq072y-QIVA8LCBB1x5QvtEAAYASAAEgKG3fD_BwE You don't have to do the show live, you can just record it and, then upload it somewhere. With Youtube you just need to make it into a video format, which isn't hard. You just need to get use some basic video editor, and add an image over the entire recording, and you're good to go.
  8. I always thought it was silly the way people say stuff like “overrated trash”. It feels more inauthentic or try hard than just saying “it’s trash”. It gives off this feeling like they’re trying to be rebellious and braggadocious.
  9. If you look at my other posts in this thread, I agree with you over the meanings. I'm telling you what most of the internet likes to think it means. It's always used in disdain towards anything popular, or critically acclaimed. They talk about how terrible it is, and add the extra spice of "it's overrated", like it makes it sound like an educated opinion. If so many people didn't think overrated = bad, I (or others) wouldn't be questioned by people so much when I say "wait, how can you like something that you think is overrated?"
  10. Another reason why it’s interchanged a lot is because a lot of people throw those terms around as a “fancy” way to say something popular/well regarded sucks. Apparently it adds more “oomph” if you say it’s overrated/overhyped than just flat out saying you think something sucks.
  11. Probably not. My hair hasn’t fell out at my age yet, so by the time it does, I’d be at the age where it’s “normal” to see a guy with thin/balding hair. If I was balding in my 20’s, I’d have used some products, but I dodged that bullet.
  12. Most of the RPG’s I play have short side quests and the names of the characters are super insignificant. The names of the quest characters are just to give it a tad bit of spice as opposed to “villager A”
