Re: [1526] That kind of love

Thus you get a scale of toughness (Constitution) and recovery (Healing) that scales with the threat. Assuming you don't do something really dumb any damage you take is fixable within a short enough span that it won't impact the game. And if you are really dumb, but the game likes you or finds you n...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

Sure this could be something inside something else, story-wise. Aside from the true virtuality in a mundane sense; as we probably know, the causes exist inside the pathways of the authors, which then become effects to the observers. The whole process of creating and consuming, a frequent subject in...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

On Perma Death, maybe... it isn't a thing for any of the characters in the game...? So look, there is the TPCD. Do they schedule disasters, so that civilian casualties and destruction of urban area are kept to a minimum? Even at the start of things when we 'see' it for the first time (recap'd by La...

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

OK, after multiple attempts to start writing, I simply can't get anything coherent out. The art's awesome as always, and there are intriguing questions here, but seeing the way-older-than-we-thought ninja tying up the innocent, if mouthy, girl sets off all my hot buttons. With any luck, it'll set of...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

Certainly an author doesn't need to have a fully developed background or even any answers at all before something happens, regardless if the characters are guiding it to some extent or not. The Horde seems scary, but so far hasn't as far as we've seen killed anyone. Maybe at the school that was luc...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

I suppose that for many Miho-haters it's more like, they had a lot more time for their opinions of Miho crystalize and settle... whereas it's different for e.g. me who re-read the entire comic somewhere in December only :) I see this change in Miho going a lot faster than you guys who have been at ...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

1. Backgrounds and Headspace. To put a bit of both together. The big-picture background information parts haven't been static, they've moved and reformed since 2000 in a lot of ways. Some things just about change themselves because they turn out to fit, others because they're decided to be changed,...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

I will only say this about the above speculation. The ultimate overworld for all of the nested realities of the MT Universe is Fred's Headspace and hating on Miho doesn't have the desired effects sought by the haters. BTW my 2005 GTO is the prefered panzer for cross country trips while listening to...

Re: [1527] Nature of the relationship

Does anyone else think that Yakugashi is giving up way too much information to Nabiki?

Miho, this is foolish and selfish, and will not go well....unless you get there and trip over Ping, and you both spend the next comic or two yelling at each other while P+K watch. That would be amusing.

Re: [1526] That kind of love

No, I prefer FMP because it's not as dark as UnMod. Actually, the comparison I drew while watching BR2049 was comparing the next-gen replicants to Ping. Consider her current search for her missing level B and C libraries, and 'K's frantic search for memories... Yeesh. Of course I've read Gibson. Pl...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

It's really quite simple Some readers HATE Miho Not all are as obnoxiously pig-headed about it as TWB, quite a few seem to be that way as a result of an apparent sincere desire that Largo be the only character in MT who never lies and also does the right thing It's Animal Farm expressed as Miho BAA...

You're right (I never had any bones broken there [or in fact anywhere] so i take your word for it :) ) 2. Or, he's a ghost :D. 3. thanks :) well for on...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

I don't think that men get any active abilities if they have the MG genes, but some passive abilities would be useful - enhanced sense and danger sense both seem likely here. Regeneration would clearly be really useful, not combat regen, but simply enhanced healing and the ability to heal beyond wh...

Re: [1526] That kind of love

So many things it could be, with no apparent way to tell. It's not just the lack of information or the conflicting or vague things that are suspected, it's what she's supposed to be, and the framework it's all in. And just maybe the framework itself has shifted while the story has been going on. Wh...

...I suspect she would object to the 'something' portion of the description, but I think that was hilarious. What Miho did with the Killballs, it's starting to feel like it was a forced move by the metaplot to reset her consciousness back to defaults, as she was starting to show signs of personality...

It was guessed at, Masamichi said things, Miho didn't disagree. We have a number of times Miho has stepped in to stop (help, move) things (Yuki almost being caught for stealing, Ping being harassed, Ed about to maybe shoot Ping or hit Yuki with robot-shrapnel, Kimiko and Piro having issues after An...

1. Miho stepped in to absorb the power as that's how she's supposed to feed, or at least that's the scenario we had at the time. Erika, from what we saw, couldn't handle the fame - possibly because she was being manipulated or lied to (we know about the lying, which was coming from her ex) - and the...

1. That sequence (1495-1500) exactly. Especially 1497, where the mob rejects Yuki as an MG because she doesn't look the part, and 1498/1499, where it's clear that talking about her past as a MG, and how she didn't fit the mold, is causing Ririka physical pain. It begs the question, if Yuki had been ...

We should probably both post your comment at the start of most of our posts: "WARNING! This is Way Longer Than It Should Have Been!" 1. It makes me wonder how you select things like race in MT.

Re: [1526] That kind of love

We could start a huge tangent about how much effort and time you have to invest into something in Megatokyo to give it some degree of sentience, if the rules allow for it, and to what degree. If the Kitsune here have the powers that they do in the old legends, I would imagine that they could do it m...
