Consoles being the standard is the single biggest detriment to the progression of the quality of gaming and if the average consumer was more informed about technology console gaming would become obsolete almost immediately.

I seriously fucking hate sports video games. I was playing NCAA Football 13, and I had been doing pretty well. I wasn't good, but I won way more than I lost. Now, my record is 30-23 because the last like 17 games I've lost in the last bit of the game. It's seriously un-fucking-real how badly my defense chokes.

I hate that I hate concerts
I feel like it is something I would want to do at some point but then end up hating it.
Having to stand in a huge crowd, everything being so loud, people dancing. Everyone singing along, like sorry if I wanted to listen to your singing I would of paid to see your concert not *insert artist/band's*
Plus I feel like the quality of the music would go down alittle since they would feel the need to put on a show/performance then focus completely on singing or playing their instruments.
Maybe I just hate fun.
User avatar #404217 to #404202 - thebestpieever (07/17/2015) [-]
The quality totally goes down. And the acoustics are rarely as good. And the crowds are annoying as fuck. And it's so noisy that if you care for long-term hearing you have to take earplugs with you. It's still awesome though.
But seriously, bring earplugs.

How so many women my age constantly feel the need to call attention to the fact that like Disney movies still despite being an "adult". Like "OMG I still love Disney princesses lol I'm so quirky and unique". Oh you're 20 and still love watching Disney movies oh wow you're so unique just like every other uninteresting basic bitch

I despise anime subs because when im watching television I'd rather not have to stare at the bottom of the screen to understand what's going on. People who insist they enjoy not being able to understand the words are just weebing too hard.
User avatar #404256 to #404186 - shenro (07/17/2015) [-]
if you're not glued to the screen, then you can see the action while reading the subtitles and i'd take subtitle reading over shitty voice acting or voices that don't match the character at all, any day of the week
User avatar #404326 to #404256 - theism (07/17/2015) [-]
And if the dub doesn't suck? How do you justify your weebitude?
User avatar #404343 to #404326 - shenro (07/17/2015) [-]
if the dub doesnt suck, its up to preference i suppose.
User avatar #404213 to #404186 - thedudeistheman (07/17/2015) [-]
With a lot of animation and even live-action stuff, I've noticed that not a lot of action happens when there's dialog. Huge fight scenes don't tend to have much dialog. You're probably not missing all too much by reading subtitles during dialogue-based scenes. Also, basically what thebestpieever said.

I watch live-action stuff subbed, and animation, whether it's anime or a different style, dubbed. Animation seems to have better voice actors than live-action does.
#404190 to #404186 - thebestpieever (07/17/2015) [-]
How slow does your reading speed have to be for your experience of any given piece of subtitled media to be "staring at the bottom of the screen"? It's a fraction of a second glance every 4 to 6 seconds.
User avatar #404191 to #404190 - theism (07/17/2015) [-]
Considering I have to read every bit of dialogue to fully appreciate the story I have to devote a significant amount of attention to a small area of the screen. Some of these shows are quite wordy so if I was reading three to five words a pop that would be fine, I'm not. Not mention reading requires active focus which I could dedicate to other things and using subtitles prevents me from looking at other things while I watch. Also if I can't understand the voice acting then it's just useless noise.
User avatar #404192 to #404191 - thebestpieever (07/17/2015) [-]
Concentration for fractions of second at a time. The human mouth doesn't move that fast, we can barely even get 4 words per second on average. Really how slow do you have to read for it to take away even a noticeable amount of time.
Also:
>What is non-verbal communication.
User avatar #404193 to #404192 - theism (07/17/2015) [-]
If it takes even 3 seconds a pop that's time I'm not spending watching the show.There's a reason I'm watching it instead of reading a transcript.
#404194 to #404193 - thebestpieever (07/17/2015) [-]
>Three seconds reading an equal amount of sentences at the absolute most.
User avatar #404195 to #404194 - theism (07/17/2015) [-]
3 seconds a hundred times an episode, time I could have been watching the fucking cartoon.
User avatar #404196 to #404195 - thebestpieever (07/17/2015) [-]
I like how you still not see an issue with taking 3 seconds to read an average of twelve to twenty words.
User avatar #404197 to #404196 - theism (07/17/2015) [-]
Average reading speed is 200 wpm, focusing on the rest of the cartoon would bump down reading speed. I don't see an issue at all with that.
User avatar #404199 to #404197 - thebestpieever (07/17/2015) [-]
Particularly when it comes to reading, the "average" is nowhere close to what anyone should consider acceptable of themselves or anyone they know. Be it in speed or comprehension. The average person, by any reasonable standard, cannot read; they can make out words.
User avatar #404204 to #404199 - theism (07/17/2015) [-]
And the degree pf inconvenience is irrelevant, 1-3 seconds a pop constantly updating is a pointless inconvenience, why would I subject myself to that bullshit when I could watch the exact same show without it?
User avatar #404205 to #404204 - thebestpieever (07/17/2015) [-]
I never argued that you should. What were we saying about reading comprehension?

User avatar #404201 to #404199 - theism (07/17/2015) [-]
I would call subtitles about as unideal an environment for reading as you can get. Small font, irregular background, background noise and the entire cartoon taking up your attention.
User avatar #404203 to #404201 - thebestpieever (07/17/2015) [-]
The font is bigger than a book's on any proportion you can get, if you read it at the distance of a book it'd be gigantic, and at any reasonable distance it's still bigger proportionally in your field of view. The colour is chosen to contrast the backgrounds. And no one has that small of an attention capacity.
User avatar #404208 to #404203 - theism (07/17/2015) [-]
The color won't contrast every single background, there will be inevitable clash and regardless of attention span having to focus on reading, music, voices and animation will inevitably slow your reading speed. Not to mention you need to keep darting your eyes up and down or stare at the bottom of the screen to catch the new text.

I'm Brazilian. People used the same argument for watching Two and a Half Men subbed, but, back when I did watch that shit, I preferred subbed because voice acting sacrifices so much of the original dialogue for lip-synching.
I know it's more lenient when it's animated, but still it's a bitch to do so.
User avatar #404189 to #404188 - theism (07/17/2015) [-]
Obviously if the dub is absolutely awful or subbing is the only option you have to make an exception but take something like Space Dandy where the dub is perfectly alright, watching the subbed version for weeb credit makes you a dick.

I'm really worried about being able to get a place in the next few months.
Basically, my friends and I are getting a place together (me and two other guys) and we all have a job at the same call centre.
The issue is that we won't get paid until August 25th, so we won't have any money for a deposit until that point, and I have until August 31st to move out of my current place.

I keep telling them that we need to start looking for a place pretty much right now so that we can explain to whoever the landlord is straight up what our situation is, and just being able to find a landlord who would be okay with that. But they all seem a little too lax about it and have the attitude atm of "It'll be fine"
I could might just be being a little too worrisome as I do get; but it's something that's important to me, and if anything does fuck up I'd have to move back to my hometown, which I desperately do not want to do.
User avatar #404182 to #404151 - thedudeistheman (07/17/2015) [-]
Make them start looking with you.
User avatar #404258 to #404182 - tvfreakuk (07/17/2015) [-]
I can't really make them do anything.
The main thing I've just been doing is showing them the properties I find and trying to get them more actively involved that way.
User avatar #404152 to #404151 - tvfreakuk (07/17/2015) [-]
Also fuck properties that list as "No under 25s"

Fair enough, I get it - landlords might worry about people under 25 being irresponsible and having parties and wrecking the place. But it's such an inconvenience when you find a place you can actually afford and it goes on to say that you aren't allowed because of the under 25 thing.
