have a nice day
I will never get luckier than this
What the fuck?
Let him moron
how long until everyone gets a bullet mechanic ID
and how long until you can reload by using a defensive action or anything at all
>we get a bullet passive to reload 2 ammo
>it costs 6 sloth energy
>none of our current gunners or future gunners use sloth
How the fuck do some of you guys already have the pass completed?
they went hard on mirror dungeons through the 3 pips you get per clear post daily bonuses
I haven’t actually touched the mirror dungeons yet, how are they
you can buy bp levels would be my guess
I don't see why people want a "reload mechanic" so damn much, even in Ruina ranged mechanics were just like in Limbus, it's a stapple of the ranged mechanics to run out of bullets and be weak as fuck as a result from that.
COUNTER-CLOCK WE LOSE
COUNTER-CLOCK WE RELOAD
in ruina you could choose your cards. Here you're stuck with those skills when you're out of ammo
did anyone else notice that the sinners are all dressed differently in their photos for the ID archive?
Outis looks cute in a beret
Most likely when they first encountered Limbus and it was unannounced, considering Ishmael looks like she's packed for a voyage.
>dondon was merely trying to find a smithy for her armor suit
>ryoshu was busy creating "Artwork"
>hong lu caught busy jogging
>heathcliff looks like he just got out of a fight
>rodion is seen in her gambling getup
>outis was on duty
everyone else is seen in casual wear, pulled from home perhaps
>richboi hong lu in a motherfuckin track suit
Gregor looks like he's about to pass out.
im going to angela
>Yi Sang's book compilation comes with multiple translations
wtf, which one do I read
alll of them
all at once
Wait where did you get this
I recommend reading The Stranger if you haven't. Fantastic book. I've yet to read the other ones in here but I'll make my way through them all this year.
Neat. Will read once i finish the book I'm currently reading (not a ligma book tho)
Don't use this thread, it was made by a falseflagger that wants to kick us out of /vg/. Wait for it to die then make another one only when there are no more threads
>wants to kick us out of /vg/
that sounds great
how can we help
I meant to say *to*
>kick us out of /vg/
good, that shithole needs to die
Someone made another thread kek
>kick us out of /vg/
I actually went to take a look over there a few hours ago, and my fucking god was the thread in utter chaos. LCB /vg/ threads legitimately need a purge, it was so bad that I don't even want to think about 'em anymore.
Ganker elitism. stop trying to divide the community and just go post with your fellow PM fans
No, anon. There was legitimately nothing good happening there, just bait, shitposts, ship wars, NTR, and schizos. In here, the threads are at least half-decent. I personally do not give a fuck if I post on Ganker or /vg/, it was just that bad over there.
Just took a look at the largest recent thread. Aside from the 5k+ word nothing there rape fanfiction and the Outis diaper roleplay between two anons, not as bad as I was expecting
>Aside from the 5k+ word nothing there rape fanfiction
That alone is bad enough
things should be as degenerate as possible to filter out the failed normies and incel tradfags out of the threads
Shut the fuck up
Is that not normal for Ganker threads as well?
No. Now go back >>>/vg/
I think in the thread before that, someone pissed off Ishmales and it turned to shit flinging halfway.
ffs, it's really simple, just don't piss off the Ishmaelfags and they'll keep to themselves. By default they're way less obnoxious than Faustfags and Pootisfags, but kick the hornet's nest, and it's fucking over.
Yeah, found what you were referring to in pic related. Wild how simply not liking a ship makes everyone there throw a tantrum like you'd see preteens over their celebrity relationships. Reminds me of fucking Arrow. Also had some self impregnation futanari alongside Yuri existing as maggots getting picked and eating by the street rats sprinkled in there as well
>Caring about this line
>When pic related line exists
Shipfags reach so damn much that their melee skills count as ranged.
>i like this color because X and Y
>oh and its also the color of your head too haha
paltry. meanwhile she's leaving love notes for her lover heathcliff.
>He thinks she's referring to a physical note
Thanks for not reading my post and just trying to start a seethe war, I have no dog in the race personally except to stop shippers from being cringe.
It's a shopping list for Charon.
It's a kick me sign, she's going to slap it on Heath's back after his next failed assassination.
If you manage to keep the Kick My Sign for the rest of the Canto you get in-game music player
You wanted the guy dead because he was leading a pack of pain the asses. So the fuck what if I end up killing the rest of the pain in the asses too? Our target's dead and there are no witnesses left alive.
for me its the rolling eyes rape set
>Outis diaper roleplay
Outis diaper roleplay what the fuck?
>Sinclair said no to this
Is Sinclair gay?
Probably would have married her if she didn't murder his entire family and stuff
did you skip the way he focused on demian?
He's an innocent if traumatized boy who's family was butchered by a psychotic lunatic. Cut him some slack.
I like to interpret that sequence of events as Kromer being really bad at flirting.
>traumatize young boy who's family have replaced their entire bodies with metal prosthetics
>Don't consider that he's going through a really really devastating period
>Think "If his parents were dead he'd finally dick me like the stars command him too"
>Don't get dicked
Y'know what in hindsight I'm tempted to agree,
I totally forgot that using the mem repo brings back dead agents. It's pretty nice but also incredibly fucked for those that came after and what not.
OH WELL GOTTA DO WHAT I GOTTA DO
how do i join the samefagging
is there a discord?
postin in le ebic shitposter bread
>Did a random 10 pull
This is based right? It looks good.
Also got G Outis, seems eh
yeah pursuance is the best ego you can get from rolling rn
Pursuance is really good, uptie too if you can.
Meursault is a monster right now with how useful he is.
>Heal 2 allies for 30 fucking %
What the fuck, I won
It also bursts tremor, making it fantastic with llcm Ishmael
>Sloth Gloom Pride
It's like it was made to be buddy buddy with base Outis
It's a good thing I love both of them, and their books. They've basically got a permanent spot on my team now.
With N Corp Meursault he just needs a person who does gloom to be able to use it. You can spam his skill 1 for the yellow and his skill 3 is blue.
I need the abnormality with the jacket too.
Also what as sick fucking design for an angel. I love the boney, porcelain structure it's made of.
Her support abilities are pretty nice, but single coin rolls are a killer.
>he got the drip
easily top tier EGO, I haven't even uptied mine and it still kicks ass.
single coins are the biggest deal breaker despite her having a buff and a debuff skill
there's a video on youtube of someone running solo G Outis and she's a self buffing monster that can even self heal with Gregor's passive
Yeah, you weren't kidding. These 1 coin rolls feel awful
Maybe when Resonance is buffed, I guess
Getting close to finishing Lob Corp. Maybe I'm in the minority but I'm really gonna miss the real time agent management. It's almost like a 2D RTS. Seeing their attacks go off while they're munched on by an abno is really cool, and trying to upkeep them with your sniper makes it a little more engaging than a full on auto-battle along with the jank ass way you have to get them to move. I'm sure Library is going to be great, but I wouldn't mind seeing another game that explores something as real time as this.
Project Moon Kenshi when? I wanna do raids in the Backstreets and Outskirts.
You're not the only one. LC is my favorite PM game because of how it plays.
Same, i'm personally not a fan of the card/turn based combat from the newer games.
How many pulls do you get from the pass?
20 in total
That’s less than I expected, although I guess i’ve just been spoiled by PM’s kindness with handing out 10 pulls
>no one has any good envy skills
fluid sac faust is forever unusuable.
bro? your tier 3 bunny heath?
i dont have a fucking bunny heath its over
Warp Meursault's 3x 5 +6 is overly trashed. He's incredibly fast and still tanky as fuck and an 11 for a single skill is better than what 0 Heathcliff is working with.
R Corp Heath
R Corp Ish
TingTang Hong Lu
blade guy yi sang's skill 3 is insanely good
Think it's also the only skill that works with Poise despite how shit it is at the moment.
LCFaust has the best envy skill and you got Blade Lineage Yi Sang for FREE
ENOCHGODS IM SORRY IM SORRY IM SORRY
I love Laetitia
Thread quality took a nosedive, see you folks tomorrow.
See you, anon. Sleep well!
what if we just moved to Ganker. it cant be worse than /vg/
Thats an issue for when we need to move.
>steamroll mirror dungeon
>floor 3 boss is surgery Frankenstein cucks
There goes 5-10 more wasted minutes of my time........
>Sinclair traumatized by N Corp
>Next banner arrives
>Dante extracts so some team members can larp as N corp
If there's anything you can learn in The City, appearances are not only deceiving, they're manufactured. As much as I'm a Faustfag, I don't trust any of them as far as I can throw Sinclair. (I trust Sinclair tho.)
it's going to be very funny if it turns out Outis is just this way because she legitimately believes that's how subordinates are supposed to treat their commanding officers, instead of her just being duplicitous.
she WAS in someone's army before joining the Sinners...
I'm 80% certain that she was in the Udjat in some form.
She's obviously ex-military and served in the Smoke War, but she's not R. Corp, not L corp., and her G Corp. form is from another universe entirely. In terms of the the fleshed out belligerents of the setting that only really the Udjat as an organized military force, since the others were independent fixers and mercenaries like Roland and Salvador.
I bet all her shifty-eyed shit is due to the connection to Dias.
Tell me more about the Udjat
I think shes a former udjat. Explains the ass kissing and extreme loyalty
Strong chance that's literally how Udjat forces are demanded to act. I'm of the distinct impression that if you took some Thumb soldado and stuck them into the Sinner bus, they'd probably talk less than Mersault.
Outis stands up to Vergilius for our sake, while Faust stands back and watches.
Outis has high standards and is prone to war-mode, but she's not lying, she's just a kiss ass.
I would like to have my ass kissed by her though
I want to kiss her ass
This pic is too fucking dangerous. Everytime it's posted 70% of my blood instantly goes to my dick
Ishmaelfags, it simply isn't going to happen. We lost all of her respect in Chapter 2. Instead of waiting eons for her to eventually think of us as more than some incompetent that unfortunately is her boss, you should instead just love one of the girls that already likes Dante, such as Outis or Faust.
She gets angry at your behalf when guido starts talking shit about your clock
She thinks that you're incompetent, not that you're so bad you can't even be considered human and need to be summarily executed.
Outisfags and Faustfags are really desperate to draft Ishmaelfags to their respective causes. But Ishmaelfags hold strong, for they know that they can win her trust back, and when they do, it'll be kino.
We're in the same boat as Ishmaelfags, trying to win over our wife with valiant deeds.
>Outisfags are constantly pelted with words of treachery and treason
>Ishmaelfags have to endure shipping wars
Don't tell me... is it all a ploy by Faustfags?!
No, of Faust herself.
She should realize that the outcome of chapter 2 was a major success due to the paradoxical luck fucking the mission to completion
Im convinced any and all discussion of shipping is done by women. Real men dont give a fuck about this gay ass shit
Some of it maybe, but sheer statistics mean a lot of men are doing it to.
But it's female-brained, emotionally-starved men who get kicks out of imagined affection from their chosen fixations and tulpas.
Definitely not healthy male behavior.
Anon, real men do ship. They just simply don't discuss it because there's nothing to discuss
>Me X Female Character
That's it, the end all be all of anything shipping wise for guys
These characters would look real cute together!
These characters would look real cute on my dick.
There's only so many creative ways you can mention wanting to fuck a character before it just becomes stale and repetitive.
The clock is Garnet, the body it's attached to belonged to a Limbus Company executive, which is why he was already wearing the Limbus Company coat before he got rescued by the sinners.
Dante is a mix between the two personalities.
This whole [character]fag feels so forced and retarded, were you gays waiting until limbus to type like this or is this a newfag thing?
newfag + what lack of content does to a bro
I think Ishmael is a cool character, level-headed and reserved. A good foil to the unlikeable psychotic gypsy that is Heathcliff, and the story beat of her losing confidence in the Manager and becoming more assertive is pretty great. Really looking forward to her chapter.
However, I find her rather unattractive physically, on account of the droopy eyes.
I regret to inform you sir, that you may in fact be a homosexual. Please see a doctor at your earliest convenience.
Wish i can relate to her but i never went on extended naval trips, unless camp trips count
Pic related; I estimate Ish to have a negative canthal tilt of somewhere between 2°-3°, therefore she is scientifically, objectively, has unattractive eyes and facial features.
Then why does my dick get erect everytime I see her?
Hmmm the brief says "Do not trust Outis", but she says I'm the best ever... Better promote her to vice manager
For someone like Outis, you put them in positions of responsibility but not power.
If you must give them a position of power, be sure to have someone else you trust ready to stab them in the back before they do it to you.
look, anons, it's simple. Love Ish, love Faust, love Outis, shrimple as that.
This anon gets it. No more retarded shipping wars and fights, let's just love our waifus and husbandos in peace, and let others do the same.
>No more retarded shipping wars and fights
and just let the thread fucking die?
Anon, if the thread dies, it dies, someone will make another when there's more stuff to talk about, this isn't /vg/. Go there if you want to engage on threads that are up 24/7.
Yes. It is what it is.
You retards don't love anything you just want to coom
Spoken like someone with sheer vitriol in them. Really makes me think, anon.
I don't want to coom I just want to see Gregor happy
I love Angela and wish to be her lawfully wedded husband.
I wanna see my jobbers develop and grow, what is so wrong with that
It really annoyed me that this retard, after the shit she pulled, was the one to beat sense into Sinclair when he was chimping out. I'm gonna chimp out next if she's up to her usual antics next chapter.
I want Ishamel to kill a giant fucking whale
That'd be Ahab anon, Ishmael is the one who likes them
Maybe you guys are right.
I agree. We shall become Limbus Company.
I'm having more trouble on Kromer than I've had with any mechanic/fight in the entire previous two games.
moron just do clashes normally and save your ego for when she does her stagger herself attack
So I read Metamorphosis
So this guy supports his whole family solo but then is treated like a burden after he can't wage slave anymore. They all then celebrate when he dies. The ending also has a positive tone after they all kill this guy who supported their useless asses because they can't be fucked to help him out? What kind of shit ass story is this?
Also I wonder if the apple is intentional in Canto 1 considering in the book, Gregor's dad basically kills him with one.
>What kind of shit ass story is this?
First time reading Kafka? Because he's all about that particular feeling
Imagine you one day woke up as a monster. Unrecognizable, unable to speak, and utterly horrifying to look at. His family wasn't even sure if that was Gregor or something that fucking ate him. Gregor knew deep down that what he had become had caused his family a lot of distress and he had no way of even apologizing. He himself didn't want to burden his family and would have killed himself much earlier if he had the capability to do so.
It's also an early metaphor for various mental illnesses, take your pick any work.
Honestly I can understand how Gregor's family feels when my sister has turned into a retarded, autistic woman child. It's just really disconcerting seeing someone who you once saw with tons of potential and intelligence become what amounts to a retard.
There's a difference to feeling building agitation towards a person that only days ago was a functioning fit member of society who is now a vegetable who can't even feed themselves, and using your family member as pseudo slave labor while you reap the benefits and rewards, and then outright state that you wish they were dead when they are no longer able to feel that role, I feel at least.
It's not so much a vegetable, but it's definitely an irritant. The person you once know isn't there anymore. Their personality has completely changed as well as how they act. They do so much shit without regards because they can't even remember or think about it. You can't have a proper conversation with them and you never really know if they actually understood what you said.
Yup and THATS THEIR FAULT, NOW LETS KILL THEM AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT FUCK THEM
It's about how losing your job and becoming a disgusting NEET inspires everyone around you to pick up the slack and kick you to the curb.
>read up on the story
>all those second/third wave feminists trying to put a positive spin on it with gurl power
May allah inflict upon them every kind of cancer
>tries to spin it that it’s actually about the sister empowering her self
>while she abuses and eventually has her ptsd ridden brother killed
Self awareness truly is rare
>So this guy supports his whole family solo but then is treated like a burden after he can't wage slave anymore. They all then celebrate when he dies. The ending also has a positive tone after they all kill this guy who supported their useless asses because they can't be fucked to help him out?
yes, modernity is like that
Do these morons actually expect me to manually play 30 minute long dungeons for 3 fucking shards of which I need 400
Also your tutorial is garbage and your ui abysmal
Finally finished chapter 3 and completed current story! Get rekt ya crazy bitch! No nailing for you!
What's the deal with the -X during EGO use anyway?
anyone have the gif of don throwing confetti
>get 74 hit damage with impending day on a grown powerful FOR REALSIES
>it doesn't kill it because of factory
>heal still procs
Bug or does it actually die and get replaced in the same frame?
It dies then immediately gets revived yeah
Damn now I wanna read the other stuff. Can't believe a gay phone game is making me read literature.
You should have read these of your own volition. Literature isn't a collection of fucking marvel-tier rehash stories. Most of these have themes and messages that are as relevant a thousand fucking years ago as they are today because as much as we like to pretend otherwise, humanity at its core really hasn't changed at all.
>You should have read these of your own volition
stupid ass bro can't even show an ounce of understanding for fellow victims of the education system
The stranger is a favorite amongst other managers
>the smart fedora-tipping nerd becomes a religious nutjob
I don't get the logic behind some of these IDs.
>Faust goes fucking crazy after Dante has his human head replaced
>Faust reaches some insane conclusion that prosthetics and the inhuman are the root of the problem
>Faust was indoctrinated from an early age
>The Director REALLY wanted a crazy Faust
Take your pick
it appeals to her megalomania, but instead of her just being a smug asshole about it, she enforces her superiority on others through overwhelming violence
Faust knows all the answers, so what other place is there for her than at the head of a zealous procession?
there's gotta be something to them if they're all still being circulated.
DO YOU LOVE Ganker!?
NO NO NO GET LOST
I like Ganker. I don't like the influx of gays since limbus released.
I almost lost to this fucker in my most recent mirror run.
Do any if their books teach you something? Are some of them worth a read or are they just tedious old books?
at least two of these books are authors trying to suss out their latent homosexuality
Ryoshu's book is as small as her chest
Are you an actual retard?
Most of these books are heralded as the greatest pieces ever penned and have become staples to read for anyone that gives a remote fuck about literature. So yes, I'd say there's something more than dry fucking text to them.
>victims of the education system
The only person you're a victim of is yourself for getting played by a system that panders to the lowest common denominator of retard. Hence "of your own volition"
Go take your inflated ego to
When it is clear that your bitch cannot be reasoned with, you must then HIT the bitch
I do not care how many gifs of bright you have punching people, you are not cool or interesting for your retarded grandstanding.
No, you absolute retard, a person who isn't taught to critically think and enjoy subtext would almost never understand or enjoy literature, let alone enjoy a retard's prose poem about the whailing industry where sometimes interesting things happen
The best parts of moby dick are the ridiculously detailed scenes that immersive you and let you really imagine the stage the characters are on
You want grandstanding? How about I give you the fucking truth?
I went through the American education shitstain just like you. Only I had some "problems" growing up and as a result I ended up sleeping through classes, ignoring the homework, and drawing on tests. This led to me spending my junior year in a basic bitch english class that had people just now learning how to read and at least some of them still holding the fucking thing upside down. We were given a task to spend an entire month reading Frederick Douglas' autobiography. I read the first chapter and realized how painful it was really going to be so in my bright mind I walked my miserable ass up to the teacher and straight up threatened to kill myself if I had to spend a month reading something I could finish before class let out. The next day I was handed Ulysses and her AP student's assignments. I spent the next month wondering if I really was retarded for not just going for the easy A, but overall enjoyed that time a lot more learning to read into motifs, author's intent, and subtext. So yes, of my own fucking volition I made a choice to not be a fucking victim of the godawful American education system and you could have just as easily done the fucking same.
I see. Youre just a spergy twat. Its really that simple, at the end of the day.
Also AP english, by the way
>Be a spergy twat
>Don't get failed by a shitty education system
I fail to see the downsides
I mean, I did get what I want. Only downside was having the school councilor on my ass for the rest of the year. We became good friends the next year though when I got a frequent flyer card to her office.
not your blog, didnt read
Should've actually committed to the threat
But I'm in a thread full of things I like. In what way do you feel this picture is actually relevant?
You gonna distort, maybe shit and piss yourself?
Someone call Carmen, I want her to see this shit
Carman is responsible for that diatribe.
It seems like your problem was being forced to read “books” written by black “people” instead of real literature
My critical lack of fucks to give about Frederick Douglas did have a part to play in that, yeah.
I never really paid attention during the forced diversity parts in class because even back then as a child it felt forced and artificial
>couldn't stand any of the books about the struggles of the black folk
>unironically enjoyed reading Sherman Alexie in high school
someone tell me what this means, because I have no fucking clue
Probably because it was at least decent writing compared to the hundreds of “muh 30 years a slav gibe money”
Kids are not retarded. Also its very hard to believe they are slaves and suffering when kids see how black kid parents magically have 5 kids and they can drop put of school and still get gibs
Even more when zoomers are approaching their 30s and can see the scam
>Spend an entire quarter of the year reading new books about people in Iraq
I just don't fucking get it
Is this what they're teaching zoomers in school now? Jesus
Teacher matters. Basically what you read is usually because the teacher forces you to read it since it's their interest.
Maybe in your country, in mine there was a list of dogshit and the teacher had next to no say
t. got on well with my English and Literature teachers
>That one teacher that's too close to retiring to give a fuck and knowing that it won't be on the exam just let's everyone fuck around for the class period as long as they pretend to be reading
I had that one but as the music teacher. Ex lawyer who realized he had insane skill with the pipe organ(to the point he has the third largest one in the state), absolutely didn’t give a shit what you did as long as it wasn’t incredibly stupid or illegal, during our tours( we were a choir), he’d take us to sea food buffets and shit. Was really well read on classical and religious literature too.
absolutely based rat
to be fair, that's a pretty realistic depiction of the real business world
>Get your finances set
>The spend the rest of your time gambling on stocks
>on choir tour
>professor brings in friends of his that are in the music field
>one guy brings all this computer equipment
>spend nights playing old school games on his emulator and watching movies
It was great
My 'Small Business' was like that. Me and my buddies were able to do balance sheets and shit about 3x faster than the rest of the class so we just played poker quietly while the rest of the class worked
>elementary school gives us "points" for reading books that we could redeem for ice cream and pizza
>learn to enjoy reading
>reach middle school and high school
>forced mandatory reading of dogshit "classics", no longer fun since dopamine boost is gone
>10+ years of not reading for 4fun
>pirate The Way of Kings 2 years ago on a whim
>100+ books read since then
It's good to be back
>motivating children to read using food
Do americans really?
I'm riffing, that seems like as good of a motivator as any
There were other rewards too, like 20 min extra recess for the entire class and shit like that, but of course my fat ass went for the ice cream and class pizza party lol
Millenials were meme'd hard with college. I envy chads and stacies who said fuck school and dropped out at 16, learned some basic but required skill and got a family
Most of high school and college is filler shit that just steals your best years. Fuck those boomers saying being in prison I mean classroom until your 25 was better than learn to work at 16. Grandpas were more based since they used to bother to teach kids
I don't feel like reading real literature anymore. Like the longest book I recently read was a 40k book. It was a pretty enjoyable read though. But other than that, I just search for trashy jp shit to read. I can't appreciate higher literature anymore.
Read Red Rising bro, it's kino
I remember that, kids would try to read Harry Potter the Goblet of Fire because it gave the most points due to how fucking huge it was so it was always out of stock in the library.
I would read this book series where the left page had an illustration and the right side was the story, got through 3 musketeers and some king arthur story because of that.
Nta but you would do a quiz on those ancient PCs that were beige with Windows 98. If you got enough points you would be an "honor" student and they would take you to McDonalds in a limo.
>I would read this book series where the left page had an illustration and the right side was the story, got through 3 musketeers and some king arthur story because of that.
me mum actually read me Moby Dick out of one of these when I was a lil kid.
Yeah I was literally one of those kids, skim read Harry Potter then bombed the test
Milked the shit out of Eragon and Ranger's Apprentice though
Rangers apprentice was the shit
Also the last book is fanfiction bullshit and not cannon
>AR points were required by my teacher only
>Spent the first year I had with her just reading whatever I wanted
>The next year I had her she kept increasing how much I needed to get in a month to try and push me
>Halfway through the year I had twice as many to get as the rest of the class
>Started weighing length vs. point value and realized that whole-point books are anything more than 80 pages and there was an entire illustrated version of The Odyssey that fits the bill
>Read all of them in a couple weeks and passed all the tests
>Suddenly I stopped earning points altogether
>The teacher tries to talk to me worried
>Explain that my mother got me an actual copy of the Odyssey and I've been reading that
>She just gives me a 100 in reading for the rest of the year
Good fucking times shame they never last
>mfw almost exact same except I just left high school a few years ago and still can't be assed to pick up a good book
iirc I won my class 5th or 6th gra classes around 5 fucking pizza parties over the course of the school year because I read those kinda books for fun and my memory was good enough to retain most of it when I did the tests afterwards. I really should get back into reading.
For me, the cause of my entry back into reading was finding the Zlib site (rip)
Removing the price barrier to reading allows you to explore any book you want and drop it at a moment's notice
isnt zlib still alive?
Only on tor, last I heard.
Ah I see, Yeah that singlelogin site is slow as shit at least Anna's archive is still around. Sucks that it doesn't have a handy apk though
Yeah but now you need the apk or the onion site which is slow as shit and a general hassle.
LibGen is cool but a pain to sift through sometimes
There's also the pirating directly from Amazon method via abusing the return policy and an old Kindle version but it's being clamped down on iirc
>I really should get back into reading.
same, might just walk into a bookstore tomorrow and try to hunt down the translation of Die Ratte that I started reading in my HS American Lit class instead of doing the classwork.
I found my favorite manga from a fuckin /tg/ filename thread, derails are scarily consistent in their payouts
>I found my favorite manga
The Voynich Hotel, you might remember it from this page or the one with the gay assassin sniping girls.
it's a charming lil (3 volumes) romance series, just reread it for like the third time yesterday
I thought that was a fucking doujin from that panel
The artists could very well make mint from doing doujinshi
I'm 99% sure they've been in Comic LO for about as long as it's been printing if we're going off that "style"
he actually does also do doujins, look up Oddman 11 and get a first frame of a girl pissing on a boy's face
oh shiiit I remember this manga, I gotta reread this it's been years
Witch Hat Atelier
The apk site works great, but the onion/Tor site doesn't
It’s a joke, I thank god that I just naturally had an interest in books and was reading shit like Sherlock Holmes and Moby dick in high school while they were forcing us to read that garbage
Nah bro this was back in the early 2000’s
Is that what schools in America are about? My teacher would make us write a new scene for whatever book we were studying.
I hated it because his favourite one would be read to the class
I don’t think anyone knows what schools in America are about, they barely teach you to read and do basic math, and anything else is random nonsense
>I don’t think anyone knows what schools in America are about
It's tax-payed daycare
I wonder if kids still question why the fuck they don't teach how to do taxes or basic things like cooking because I remember we would say that all the time in 2010.
I still fucking do, and it’s because if people know how to do their taxes and cool businesses would loose millions
I still don't know how to do my taxes
don't tell the head
They don't have mandatory cooking classes in America?
You think our schools can afford that shit? Our taxes have more important places to go.
Like the elite and the military so we can police the entire fucking world.
here is a funny story
I recently went back to my home country
There I found a free souvenir book for women's day
In corporate menphis with disabled women, brown women, women with beards, women with funny little flags made of colors
I turned the book around, curious of it's product. A big ol
>FUNDING PROVIDED BY
with an american flag.
Yet I did not learn to cook from school
No they got rid of all the useful classes decades ago and replaced them with nothing, now take your useless Spanish class with the stereotypical fat shirt Hispanic woman
I had it as part of general home-ec in middle school (along with how to sew and stuff), and as an elective in high school. It varies from place to place, but it's generally not mandatory.
>had cooking/home ec classes
>get neutered cause the tards and meat heads couldn't be trusted with knives or burners
No-one left behind has done irreparable damage to the education sector and life as a whole all from the best of intentions
No child left behind was the biggest mistake the country has been subjected to in a century
It happened to more than one.
The pass rate of my general English classes during my year 11 was I swear to god 40/100
There were no Aboriginal students in my school either
Yeah but what good is the English language when you're living EDF every day?
Should be teaching kids how to box a kangaroo so they don't get jumped on the way to the shop
Abbos are going to be the biggest factor towards Australia using green energy.
>Everyone in the area goes green
>Petrol stations shut down
>Abbos have to move somewhere else
Just feed that to the aussies who hate electric cars and they'll make the switch faster than you can blink.
I can confirm we said that all the time in 2015
>B-but the budget!
>Buys yearly equipment replacement for the football team
>IT'S JUST NOT IN THE BUDGET
>Adds in Mandarin and French classes in Florida of all places
>PLEASE WE NEED MORE BUDGET
>Gets the school repainted every two years
My school actually did have a class that taught you how to do taxes and file government forms and shit. But it was an optional elective and only like 40 people took it.
That shit should be made mandatory because it was pretty helpful.
if you try to teach kids taxes they would just treat it like an even more boring math class
And now no one knows how to do them and you’ll see jail time if you fuck them up
>they barely teach you to read and do basic math
If anything, in my experience, it's the opposite. 90% of your school life here will be spent doing nauseating general ed that just goes on and on and on. Very little has to do with finding your interests or career path or how the fuck you're supposed to survive after the fact. I really can't blame people for jumping into trades
American schools are the worst combination of “be ur self” while putting you through the most bland generic schedule of shit humanly possible it still makes my head spin
American schools are weird. We'd read classic literature for half the school year and then randomly start reading a book about how terrible life is in india written by a girl I've never heard about.
please stop, you are making me hate Americans
no way many people are as retarded and illiterate as you
>Only I had some "problems" growing up
this is your problem, inbred
You have no fucking idea how bad the situation is in American public schools. If a kid doesn't read on their own time, then they graduate with what the rest of civilized society considers a middle-school reading level.
Hard no on that one since these were curriculum books that were provided by the school board for the explicit purpose of having them read by entire classes.
>Nah bro this was back in the early 2000’s
We both know the situation hasn't gotten better.
>We both know the situation hasn't gotten better.
Sorry I meant that as the situation has been going on well before Doomers were in school
I wonder if they still do silent reading in high schools.
In 2nd period everyone would be silent and just read a book for I think like 20 minutes. Got to finish I Am Legend because of that, was pretty good.
they still did in my school in 2016
>2016 was 7 years ago
what the fuck man
Did they teach the gender bullshit at that time? I feel like I was the last group of high schoolers to get out before that, and I went to school in SoCal.
>and I went to school in SoCal
does that qualify you for disability?
not in mine but we had a teacher that was very interested in a certain controversial politician at that time and made us do an essay on how he was bad. We had to cite 3 texts for the essay and they were things about propaganda, intolerence and news stories about him in fucking canada. talk about rent free
Lmao orange man or Bush?
God 2016 year was full of shows and movies claiming everyone would go to gas chambers kek. I remember that American Horror Story season
Also so much for ORANGE MAN WILL TAKE IS TO WAR only for now we are supposed to die to kill Putin lmao
Damn bro that's one of the craziest things I've ever heard. Can't believe how angry some people get about that guy
>Had a government teacher who warned everyone of biases and propaganda
>Told everyone that if they used Fox, CNN, or NBC for a news source that he'd throw their paper in the trash
>Told people how to analyze situations from multiple perspectives
>Had us write a paper on a topic with our personal opinion and then write a paper on the same topic with a contrary opinion
>Warned everyone that the people you have to be worried about in the world are the ones you can't criticize
>Was a ~~*berg*~~ himself
They don't make them like that anymore
This is why if you have a kid, you homeschool him/her
>Had a US history teacher
>Was cool as shit
>Talked about how terrorist are stupid and if he was one he would poison a bus of people or a football stadium via sodas
>Also told us the ups and downs of Nazi Germany
>World history teacher right next door would joke about how vietnamese were primitive people with chop sticks that killed over 50k US soldiers.
Why were history teachers so cool.
This reminds me of my history/government teacher back in highschool. Real old guy but he was pretty based. After every lesson he'd pretty much go on about how everyone in the government doesn't care about you and if you wanted to figure out the cause of a situation you'd just have to "follow the money" to see who's really in charge and causing problems.
His advice never lead me astray so far.
I got a citation for typing "Obama sucks" on a school computer in Elementary School lmfao
Wish I still had the warning slip they gave me
3 citations = 1 suspension
PYLUSD by any chance?
I went to 3 different high schools with the last one being a continuation school because I stopped caring about classes. It's complete bullshit too because you can earn all the credits you need to graduate by doing just work that meets the standards too. It took me like 2 months to catch up and then I just did nothing in that fucking place except exist. I honestly don't remember the name, it was in Cathedral City though, great name, lots of murders.
YOOOO THAT'S THEM, I READ THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER ONE TOO.
The worst I ever got was in college my first year with the forced seminar class “Vampires and feminism” it was a joke, it was treated as one considering the credits didn’t even count, but at least I got to watch sone good vampire movies.
Graduated from a "specialized high school" and never had that, though it is an engineering-focused school. All reading was to be done on the student's own time.
>If a kid doesn't read on their own time, then they graduate with what the rest of civilized society considers a middle-school reading level.
I'd say it's closer to functionally illiterate, at least for the purposes of anything other than a set of instructions
Moby Dick taught me how low I was willing to go just so that I knew more about the context for a girl from a Korean gacha.
You got to Queerqueg I assume
Im going to say something a little corny, anon, but through project moon and the required readings I feel as if I have also found my connection with the well of humanity. Within those pages I have found something precious that I felt lost and absent from the world at large. Because of that, I cherish project moon immensely.
Start with the metamorphosis. Its short and you can read it in an afternoon with extremely little commitment. After that, I suggest the stranger. Camus' works are downright incredible and while personal bias says read The Plague even though its not part of the required reading, youre free to pursue the required readings at your leisure
There certainly is something special about them, people bitch about the length of sone or the scizoness of others, but there’s a spark to them, the sheer detail or focus about them, The stranger felt incredibly genuine, moby dick I’d the same way in just A LOT more words.
Don't go to the beach, especially if you're autistic.
God damn it Don Quixote you are a massive disgrace to the character you are based upon.
>Kafka also died of Tuberculosis
WE NEED TO STOP THIS MENACE BEFORE IT CLAIMS MORE DEPRESSED AUTHOR'S LIVES
It killed a prerty subversive garden gnome, not the worst loss in the world.
it killed yi too
I think yi would have gone the way of terry davis if the sickness hadn’t gotten him first. Sound like a wild dude
Kromer feels pretty fucked right now, I guess it's supposed to be content for maxed out characters but I really thought I'd be able to do it with level 25s. Was using LCB Hong Lu, Mersault, Outis and Heathcliff and Zwei Sinclair and I don't think I won a single clash outside of ego attacks. Barely lived through phase one only for everyone to either panic or instantly stagger+++ in the first round of phase 2.
I did it with 25s and a 17 all default.
Requires more strategy with making sure you win clashes, using ego to assure get real high probability clash wins for dangerous stuff or to save an ally, and building ego resources.
For first phase keep an eye out for "I will kill you" or some move like that and be sure you have an ego move ready to clash it. You can essentially shut down her entire turn by having your fastest one in the turn order winning that clash with their ego (also selecting them last). It will auto stagger her and open her for big damage and moving her close to her second stagger line. Beware to NOT try to nuke her to 0 and not clash, keep an eye on her other moves if you are getting close. She will still get her full turn leaving her to beat your shit in if you focus fired one slot to end the phase.
second phase watch for the body triple attack and the aoe saving/using ego moves as necessary. Main body is fatal to blunt and one of the arms is shit against slash I think.
Moves that lower enemy offense like Faust's green, Meursault's ego and such help a lot for the clashing. Yi Sang surprisingly saved my ass a lot when he was my lowest leveled guy. Had a lot of resource for his EGO move which gives haste boost and lowers target's offense which helps on that turn and the next.
IIRC using chains of others every 2-3 turns to make sure her big moves that NEED to lose clashes come out with atkpwr down 4 makes the fight a lot more manageable
I wonder what his Sinner form would be like...
he's part of the rival limbus company branch, featuring Gatsby, Bennet, Jose Arcadio and others
Is there a reason Gregor (forma de cucaracha) is losing sanity when using eviscerate? I'm watching it count down and return to neutral.
hell screen chads stay winning

The sack had a purpose...
Yeah, to bludgeon other dickheads
That bastard couldn't change a thing
I hope Ryoshu gets a cat ego
I would settle with a decent ID. Her current ones are fine but the colors are so god damn horrible.
is faust the only sinner that regularly calls dante dante instead of some variant of manager?
Day 48 done. Turns out you can easily do the shelter cheese once again. The game was eating 2gb of RAM at around 50 minutes in, but at least now I know what happens if you let Yin and Yang join together.
My strategy for day 49 is to hire as many nuggets as I can so I can pause a couple of times without losing the agents I actually need.
Well, it's time to slam jam. Wish me luck.
>He didn't make it to day 49 with zero deaths
lmao what a bitch
I tried for a while. I think I lost my streak at around day 42, but I just kept going because I really want to start playing Library of Ruina.
It certainly was a journey. I got stuck at day 37 for at least 5 months just because I didn't want to lose a single nugget, but now that I'm at this point of the game I realize I was making it harder for myself without a reason.
Alright, now I gotta close every process in my computer so the game doesn't burn it. I'll see you on the other side.
Their suffering built your future. Just don't let it be in vain.
>but now that I'm at this point of the game I realize I was making it harder for myself without a reason.
>he faced the fear
>tfw you make it to day 40
>haven’t lost a single nugget
>realize you’re probably going to loose them all
>doing my final run
>lost my first agent during day 43 because I made him do repression work on NT for some unexplained reason

It is what it is.

>Kether lags behind every other floor in the story
kether realization should have come first but had no final abno fight since angela isnt ready to move on
Look on the bright side. They're all relaxing, having tea parties with Binah while the sinners are busy getting gibbed by abnos and bullied by Verg.
I made it to 49 with 3 agent deaths total (not counting mem repos obviously) and it's not because I gave a shit about anything other than a handful of gigachads; it was because the LOB investment to get those units back was too high.
Good luck manager
I look forward to witnessing your strength, manager
Pretty much the exact same strategies I used. You're gonna make it, manager.
Remember, you got to where you are from here. You've done better than most people in these threads myself included. (I can't even fathom how I'd deal with day 20+ ordeals to be frank) so congratulations, good luck
Faust is my favorite Sinner but she gives me massive "stab you in the back later on" vibes
If anything it just makes me like her more
Anyway I'll probably spend 40+ rolls on the 000 banner
>Faust is my favorite Sinner
>but she gives me massive "stab you in the back later on" vibes
Not based. She's the most trustworthy of all sinners, and is also your wife. She would never stab you in the back
She's going to stab us in the back to bring back previous Dante, who is her actual husband.
You can trust her, don't worry. She does seem to actually like you.
Spoiler ahead. Be warned.
Is there a faster way to beat abnos for dailies? I forget if there's an encounter with them in chapter 1 that isn't in the big dungeon but I don't really want to go into a 2 hour affair to do that for a daily..
Use the chapter 2 dungeon, first fight there is abnormalities, and then forfeit to get your modules back.
>Do a mirror dungeon in 30 minutes
>Clear 3/5 dailies
It's not that hard anon
Haven't tried it but see if you go into Ch 1 dungeon, fight an abno, back out and see if it completes the daily. If it does you can forfeit the dungeon and you will get your module back.
I can confirm that works however you can do all but the complete three stages if you do a single mirror dungeon for your dailies.
It counts when you do your daily MD
A full mirror dungeon run should at most take you 20 mins if you have a good comp and don't get the surgery abominations as the last boss
Fuck those guys
Fuck them and the wolf inquisition
Are they shorter on reruns? I just did the chapter 1 last dungeon and it took me a bit.
MD's take less time than your standard dungeon and you can do all daily requirements except stage clears.
Ah, okay, this is something different thing.
Hey speaking of dungeons that really want to shit extremely fast
>there are people that failed the save yuri skill check
I alone stand supreme with my mascot.
She’s gone anon...she’s just in your head...let her go..
Don't be foolish anon, she's right here, in my bus standing next to charon with her mask around her neck.. haha their interactions are so funny.
Why does her eyepatch switch eyes?
she looked at the mirror
mfw ideal reached
holy shit he changes shoes
Well with the amount of curb stomping he does I’d imagine so
When you get Impending Day on Sinclair you can just bltiz through the MD without care cause you can always go for levels and never worry about using health regen tiles.
So all your guys will be lvl 25-30 for the final boss, and you'll crush them in very favorable clashes
how long from now until the reset followed by the 4 hours grind followed by maintenance?
I can't into time conversions
like 16 hours or more
Is Zwei Sinclair better, or El Jefe?
Or do I have to stick with LCB
Don't have Zwei Sinclair but but El Jefe sucks ass sadly, and Zwei Sinclair probably works great with a Tremor team like LCCB Ish and LCB Heath.
sinclair's genereally eeeehhh
LCB is better just on the fact that it fits his zayin ego better and requires 0 investments
LCB is a solid A or S- tier
Zwei Sinclair held his weight on the fight against Kromer for me. He has a skill that applies a debuff that makes her vulnerable to blunt.
>unlike other sinners the manager is not allowed to look at files about outis's past
she works for the udjat and dias, dias runs limbus company, and outis is the plant to make sure you dont stray from the path the company wants.
Yes. She's the Trojan Horse in our Troy.
>she's going to impregnate the impregnable
How big is her Futa cock tho
Enough to make Faust's mind go to mush and ahegao like a good cumslut.
That would probably explain why Vergil didn't immediately curbstomp her when she got up in his face.
How do I beat this Abno, bros?
Mute the music
shouldnt have pushed it
Did you try offering it a hug
Timed myself on the Mirror Dungeon going a bit faster than my passive pace, and I got a clear of 26 minutes after getting some pretty bad path RNG and getting the surgery bots, so I should be good for the 4 hours tomorrow.
How many modules do you have saved up anon?
Hodl bros, we are winning.
Gonna spend all day in the mirror dungeons tomorrow
115. I work for a living so I couldn’t just keep converting before. Now that i have more than 100 cap it just about fills by the time i get home, so things are getting better now
All of them
The Grind in all it's glory shall start tomorrow and hodlfags will exist no longer.
Help a manager out. I've got murderer and king of greed in Binah's facility so it's going pretty smooth, and I'm on my way to her suppression. Which of these is the least painful?
The middle one
Take the circle
O-03-89 is kino
Wew good luck buddy. I would say middle but it depends on how much of a gigachads your nuggets. If your nuggets aren't up to snuff then right, but boy is it gonna be painful.
Melting love is actually OK to handle, but if you don't have execution bullets you will want to have a nice day if you pick her
>Melting love is ok to handle
Melting love is one of the worst abnormalities to have and you only want her to get her EGO and masturbate to her.
Nah. She's extremely fucking easy. Just
Do repression since she doesn't deal high damage and repression won't let her paratizise an agent. Otherwise if you don't feel like doing that just TOTAL CLERK DEATH
Personally I think she's super easy if you don't mind having the facility operated by a single person.
I've got nuggets that can 1v1 Nothing There and a duo can wipe the floor with Mountain of Smiling Corpses even if he starts to dupe. So hopefully that's good enough. The only thing in my facility that's an insta-wipe is fucking Blue Star.
Don’t feel bad about blue star, that thing is satanic
don't remember too much but I thought blue star was super easy, like one of the easiest Alephs
It's easy to keep from breaking out but as soon as it does you probably want to reset the day. It's a huge time waster and will deal non-stop white damage to your entire facility. Obviously all of your clerks are dead but you also have to outheal it which can mean plopping your agents in the recovery room. This also assumes all your agents are 5/5/5/5 or close to it.
Easy to manage, yes. But if it manages to break out for whatever reason, you're fucked.
Yes, melting love is easy if you know how to handle her.
Which is by not interacting with her at all and beating the shit out of her if she gets affected by a meltdown.
did my day1 reset in lob corp and didnt expect to hear this song
You know what?
I won't do my dailies today.
i dont wanna wait. i want 000 faust NOW
I want 000 Faust to GRIP my cock with her pussy
Waifufags seem kinda retarded ngl
proof? what evidence do you have to substantiate this claim?
You don't say?
>fighting over fictional women is retarded
Yes it is but you can't stop me
I really enjoyed Chapter 2, but especially it's ending. It was really nice to just have a mostly happy ending where the whole gang just goes out to have some steak.
It was fun but it was marvel tier writing and I hope they don't do that again anytime soon.
It's obvious they're self aware since Gregor fucking said "We are Limbus Company"
It was obviously them really getting you prepared for the surprise sucker punch of chapter three
It was a happy ending because that plot line had barely an ending.
They merely touched the plot line with Sonya and Rodion.
I want him to sit on my face
Is there any up to date tier list?
why is the queen bee like this
Because you fucked up manager
Thought you guys said Kromer was hard. I first tried her taking about 8 damage altogether with clerk Faust, LCCB Ish, LCCB Rodion, Warp Don, and Blade Sinclair all between levels 20-24 (though I did have foreknowledge of no bleed/burn).
kromer only filters the unworthy
Now Sacristry was scary if you don't manage their instincts right
>they don't realize chapter 2 was just the first part of Rodion's story
Sonya will appear again.
I'm sorry I thought this was the Limbus Company thread not fucking Ganker
>he doesn't know
This thread is 10x higher quality than any Ganker thread
there is nothing to talk about until tomorrow, cut us some slack
This has probably been the greatest Limbus/PM thread in a long time, next to Bongbong saving Ganker.
Here's some advice bro. The best board to discuss any given topic is NOT the board for that hobby. This is true for everything, including video games.
>Someone posts the "wait a minute, this isn't videogames" edit on /u/
>It actually turns into an insightful videogame thread
>someone on /a/ asks what people listen to besides anime osts
>It turns into one of the best Ganker recommendation threads
>A thread on Ganker mentions something stupid about guns
>Gankerommandos end up giving an actual lesson on the inner workings of advanced firearms
It's just like how everytime a board comes together to make something, it's almost always not what the board is actually about
>/a/ makes a videogame
>Ganker puts out yearly music albums
It's because the main focus of the boards burn out on what they're focusing on, so when people like me who go to only that board suddenly start talking about off topic stuff on that board, there's a lot to talk about that they haven't yet already.
It's been Limbus threads 24 hours ever since it came out and there really isn't much to talk about in terms of the game now, so a lot of posts are filler, until now we actually got to talk about dumb shit like our experiences in schools, and lo and behold it's become one of the best PM threads in a while.
In this thread I learned about good books to read and gave me some determination to actually start reading something for once in my life
Do it my dude. Aside from worlds you'd never think of yourself being penned by some weirdo author, there's actually a lot of fiction based around exploring philosophies and ideologies that you only really understand when they're applied to lives of someone else, even if fictional. Demian and The Stranger are both great examples of that.

>Find a character in a book that's LITERALLY (You)

It's a strange fucking feeling, ain't it?
There’s a certain macabre humor to it for me yeah
it's not l'etranger but
>find writer whose writing in both fiction and nonficiton you feel really fucking accurately mimics your thought processes
>find out he killed himself
>MaW wants you to experience life before you die
>Your parents take it as a pity vacation for themselves because their kid got cancer
There comes a point in cruelty where it switches from malice to absurdity and just becomes comedy. Congrats on continuing to suffer another day, stranger.
Everything about "gifted" children programs disgusts me. Some kids just learn certain abilities faster than others, some kids are naturally better at math and reading and whatever subjects but that doesn't mean that they're gonna be the next Einstein. If you give them special treatment and tell them "you only get straight As' you're so smart" "you're a really smart kid you can do anything you want" you put so many expectations into the kid's head and when they reach higher levels of education and start fucking up in tests and shit they're gonna think that they're failures and a disappointment because they're not reaching they're peer's expectations. Just treat every kid as equal and if one of them excels in something at most just tell them something small like "Hey, really nice job kid keep at it".
No, actually this is exactly what's wrong with our education system because it forces you to teach everyone at the bottom of the barrel level because god forbid you just let students fail. You've also probably never seen what happens when you stuff an actual genius in these classes. They get bored, they stop giving a fuck, and on a good day might help you teach the other kids but otherwise will just goof off because they, unlike the other kids, don't need to spend a month reviewing material.
There are numerous issues with the gifted program, but giving the kids challenging work isn't one of them.
You have it backward. The problem with the gifted programs in most school boards is that they don't specialize or differentiate. I taught a gifted class last year and in order to qualify you had to test as gifted in any subject. I had a bunch of 'language geniuses' (which was a joke because they could barely string a paragraph together. I guess they just read a lot or something) who were three years below grade level at math and a few math autists who couldn't learn any kind of humanity or English to save their lives. As a result I had to simultaneously prepare material about a grade level or so above their age for the students that actually did excel at any given subject and then also run the full gambit up to about 2 years behind grade level for the people who were retarded at it.
Gifted programs should either be something you get pulled out of regular class for (eg: your class has math but because you are gifted in math there is a special meeting/class for all math gifted students at the same time as the 'academic' or regular math programs) or they should only allow students genuinely gifted in every subject.
Treating everyone equally is the biggest failing of modern education and has resulted in so much data-manipulation to make it seem like everyone is succeeding that it would make the general public sick if they actually understood and believed what was going on.
>math autists who couldn't learn any kind of humanity
that was me right there
>Did a test
>80% of it was pattern recognition
>Was put in GATE
>Got kicked out because I did not play friendly with the other kids
Before that, it was all based on IQ which is... not as bad as single-subject gifting. But being an avid problem solver turns out to not necessarily make you understand every subject, have good study habits, or in general like school.
One of the fun parts of going to uni for engineering was finding out that just about every single one of my peers was also a "gifted student" that also get fucking slaughtered by uni because we all coasted through grade school and thus never developed studying habits.
I got a scholarship for being a teachers pet, don't think anyone was gifted but i managed to piss off the big guy for making a joke about his depressed girlfriend
when the coof came, i wasn't affected much since i spend all my time in my room
>get fucking slaughtered by uni because we all coasted through grade school and thus never developed studying habits
>get fucking slaughtered by uni because we all coasted through grade school and thus never developed studying habits.
I still don't know how to study
Having a good memory RUINED me for University
>no studying habits whatsoever
>decent short term memory
>did decently in exams but don't remember anything anymore
Maybe it's just me but I still found my undergraduate classes to be extremely easy as well. Eventually I just gave up and dropped out because I wasn't really feeling like going into medicine like my parents pressured me into for years.
Maybe that's for the best. Speaking from experience, studying something you don't like will just make you miserable.
I fucking hate gynecology so much, it's unreal.
Don't know how anyone ends up interested in studying that. The thought of doing that as a job every day makes me want to kms myself. Sounds rough anon.
Literally me. I think those prayers and call-backs or whatever you call them (like "it is right to give thanks and praise"), will forever be burned into my brain.
i love books
So, how do low backstreet dwellers even attempt to become a threat, if they can't effort enhancments?
There are a lot of AOE attacks.
Determination and gut harvesting
Pick on the weaker fish in the sea to get stronger bit by bit until you have enough control to make money and upgrade. It probably isn't too hard to make money with how well the city pays for inflicting wanton human suffering; the danger probably comes from trying to step around the bigger fish in the sea. Remember, the backstreets trash we kill in Ruina and Limbus are the ones idiotic enough to pick a fight with us.
Yes, I agree.
Feels like corroded EGO is impossible to use because they get sanity so fast that they're never in the negatives even when a teammate dies.

2 years in special needs class, intelligence wasted on idiotic "teachers" and equally retarded students
I got kicked off to a terrible little facility after a misunderstanding and lived there for a good few years, and all I learned is the importance of sleeping with a weapon and how much a dremel saw can hurt
Then I was put back into a normal school completely unprepared for everything it entails
My brother has asp but that wasn't diagnosable at the time so he was sent to a mental facility, they thought he was gonna bomb the school. He was just pretending to be a gundam pilot. He was apparently raped there. I was told he went to summer camp.
>just want to get in the fucking robot
I hate you
but I still kek'd, he's having a great time now at least.

limbus company is a cool video game that i enjoy
I'll give it a read, Anon.
A friend of mine lent me The House of Leaves some weeks ago, and I really enjoyed it. Perhaps it'll entertain you as well.
too late, i already love that one
but thanks anyway brother
how big is the city?
how many people live in it?
feels like it should be a country-sized kowloon but it just looks moderately populated in any scenario and i fear for how they're supposed to keep birthrates up against the daily bodycount
It's hyper-dense in most places, roughly the size of Belgium, and has at least 4 limbillion people in it
Out of the 13 books, which are the best 3-5 to read first?
objective answers only
Metamorphosis is a short, easy read.
The shortest ones, generally. Hell Screen, Metamorphosis, L'Etranger, Demian, The Wings
From there I'd say Wuthering Heights, Crime and Punishment, Faust, Don Quixote. Depending on what you're feeling like at the time.
The Odyssey when you feel like it, I recommend the Iliad beforehand but you do you.
The Comedy is long as fuck, Moby Dick is dry as fuck, and Dream of the Red Chamber is a meme.
How literate are you?
Faust (Bayard Taylor translation > the rest) is pretty lyrical and simple to follow without ever getting too deep or introspective. It's like Shakespeare but without all the difficult phrases or archaic language that make students hate Shakespeare
Metamorphosis is relatively short and, while strange, is not a difficult read.
Don Quixote is amazing and very long but very worth it. If you can get Dore's illustrations to go with it you're golden. Extremely funny and poignant.
from there it gets difficult.
The Odyssey is one of the greatest stories in history but is extremely difficult for a novice to parse if you aren't familiar with how to read Homer or other epics.
Moby Dick is apparently very good but it's also dry as hell. Difficult to get through and requires a fair bit of patience and commitment as a reader.
Crime and Punishment is 'okay' but Robert Louis Stevenson's "Markheim" is just a better version of the same basic concept. Also I got filtered hard by characters having multiple names (Raskolnikov, Looshin, Rodion, are all the protagonist and I think some other characters also have a few different names). Story hits the climax in the first act and then there's a lot of meandering before it gets interesting again. I think Dostoevsky is overrated and both Tolstoy and Gogol are better Russian authors.
L'Etranger is something you should probably read in French. I've not checked out the English version.
Divine Comedy is 2/3 trash but Inferno is pretty cool. Better to read a summary than the full thing though. Unless you are into the poetry Dante's writing isn't actually all that good in my opinion. It's kind of funny that he put in people who were still alive at the time that he just didn't like and now centuries later we still read about those people he thought were assholes and going to hell.
I haven't read the asian stuff or Wuthering Heights. I didn't care for Bronte.
>write a book about whaling and the ocean
>it's dry reading
This world is fucking funny.
>Faust (Bayard Taylor translation > the rest)
Huh, I heard the Kaufmann and David Luke translations were the recommended ones. What makes Bayard Taylor better?
I find Taylor's translation to have a more lyrical flow and neat turns-of-phrase. I believe it keeps the original meter as well.
>Pardon, I heard your declamation;
'Twas sure an old Greek tragedy you read?
In such an art I crave some preparation,
Since now it stands one in good stead.
I've often heard it said, a preacher
Might learn, with a comedian for a teacher.
I haven't read Kaufmann honestly. Luke is fine but my personal preference is still Taylor. The Penguin Classics version uses a translation by David Constantine that I find much less enticing.
Got ya, I'll give Bayard's translation a read then. Thank you, anon.
Incredibly helpful answer, thank you.
You're welcome Anon. Hope it helps.
Is it just me or does Sonya have a Revolver Ocelot feeling to him?
Who's the Cheeto Man?
Yi Sang's book is kind of interesting but it's weird how much of a slog it is to get through.
I read The Counte of Monte Cristo no problem, but I was so bored by this most of the time, even though it's way shorter.
Does get less boring and a bit interesting in the end though. Do you think Yi Sang will have a whore wife that manipulated him in his chapter?
I just finished hell screen.
That was neat, but what the fuck does it have to do with ryoshu?
>Thread is heading to page 10 now
Sure hope this one gets archived, it was a great one.
Where's binahfag to save the threads.
Here's something better
We need more artfags smothering us with their gifts
I think we have plenty of great artfags making stuff for PM in general.
Where's the lewd artfags though to make doujins
Damn, no wonder Kromer wanted to tease him.
>keep seeing shit like this and thinking wow that's a cute Don
stop trying to make me gay goddammit
It's a typical thing of "anime".
>Call it a boy
but that one IS Don
curse you, a plague on artists, a pox on character designers, and assorted bad colds on both your houses
>divine comedy is a slog
just read the sci fi novel
Every fem sinner needs a Evil/Crazy Identity.
kill all gay boys
This was a nice thread
>zoomers circle jerking about their life
just fuck off to /vg/ already, these threads were nice while they lasted.
>Most of the people talking about school graduated around 2009-2014 it seems
What more do you want, waifu wars, rapefics, discussions that lead nowhere? i think you should go back to your vg battlezone
Maybe just maybe we should wait until hells kitchen gets released so the threads dont turn into blogposting.
If you are the same anon from the LC threads glad to have you here, if you are the same anon that made the 3d blended the pm coins/logos , nice job, i printed and painted the LC logo.
Please go away masochist
fiiiiiiiiiiiiiine just remember that these are literally the best threads the site has to offer for better or for worse <<<<<<33333333 SMOOOOOOOOOOCH
Yeah you live in the worse boards in the site, i think you won't find this culture welcoming no matter what sucking up you do
ah, it's the guraposter
We USED to wait til the day before an update or the day of an update to get threads going again but that only worked for like a month during LoR. Don't remember if it worked well for LC.
It's just the power of a cultural phenomenon.
>Dante will never have a HamHamPangPang sandwich
God I fucking love all the passive effects on my Aleph gear in LobCorp. This game is so fucking satisfying, I can't wait to hate myself during the final week.
And you guys were right, censored isn't bad at all. It's got a very basic conditional and no strings attached if you can meet it.
This blogposting is shameful. I hate to say it but go to /vg/ if you're gonna do that shit.
Just got my Kurokumo Ryoshu from a daily roll. Incredibly based.
No you WILL know about my childhood cancer
its already too late. be content with the knowledge that the blogposting will die with this thread.
>Have IDs for every character except don and ryo
I just wanna use the funny schizo girl without feeling like I'm gimping myself dammit
This is what happens when you have a thread for a game 24/7. Discussion gets stale after a while and then we have a curveball thread like this that is actually interesting.
Odds are everyone is gonna get it out of their systems by this point and we'll all go back to waifuposting and having our Geb/Binah wars that are now Faust/Outis wars.
Angela is superior
Don't worry Geb/Binahfags are fighting for 2nd place
>vst fag makes and links thread
>it turns into Gankerfagging and then blogposting
Poetic, but could be worse I guess
I look forward to everyone speedrunning their mirrors tomorrow
Anyone has the link to the game sprites?
Trying to do some shitposting over here
Sure, here https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1yARyhdrSOguMkE6hFuwCxdsFpesC2rDr
Sweet, thanks king
I hope your shitposts are extremely entertaining.
Maybe, it doesn’t really matter though, waste of energy...
9/10 but needs to say Maman is dead instead
No fucking seriously what does hell screen have to do with ryoshu
Ryoshu is based off the Painter.
Well, for starters she doesn't share the same name like most of the cast, and I find her only connecting thread to Yoshihide being "human suffering to elevate art" which sure, that works, but it seems completely anemic when you juxtapose it with yoshihide's story with how ryoshu is borderline lmao random
She's not borderline random, she's a chuuni, which might be to appeal to chuuni lovers. Think of tanaka from Danganronpa or Youmu from Touhou.
She goes too into it with the whole acronym shit and it makes her obnoxious though, which is probably on purpose because all of their sinners are supposed to have an absolute irredeemable feature of them I think.
>all of their sinners are supposed to have an absolute irredeemable feature
He's a manlet
too cute to be a sinner
An absolute pushover and pussy that got his entire family killed. That seems pretty fucked.
Sure he stood up for himself by the end but still, he betrayed his loving family. Sure they're a bunch of upper class rich shits that followed the latest trends, but they still cared for him.
Is that undeserving of redemption? Or is he doomed to Hell when his job is done
redemption doesn't exist in the city
thats that and this is this
Yeah, true enough. Lets just hope the next life is a better one.
That's this and this is that.
Like most of the sinners it can be brushed aside if you like them enough, but that's just his. I ain't gay but in terms of the rest like Rodion being an absolute gold digger his isn't as bad because he seems to be growing out of it and start standing/speaking up for himself.
Don's justice autism would be pretty bad as well. The most well adjusted are Greg and Ishmael for the most part, although who knows how Ishmael is gonna end up once we get to her chapter, could potentially get the whole team killed because of her past.
Excuse you mersault is perfectly well adjusted.
going by Demian Sinclair's issues haven't really started yet, the Kromer stuff was just the spark leading him to find the between two worlds stuff
i would imagine his shit won't hit the fan until his second chapter in which he presumably goes off to Find Himself and alternates between raging drunkard and party animal and raging simp for a girl he saw once
How long is it compared to the others, now you're just making me want to read it.
It’s fairly short, his thirsting for Demian is hilarious
I'm as much a supporter of character development as anyone else but if we get Sinclair changing into a raging douchebag party animal dickhead from our pure and innocent traumatized boy who couldn't speak or act when it counted I'll be really sad.
THATS LIFE BABY
>Think of Youmu from Touhou
But Youmu has two games I can rape her in until the chuuni breaks so I dunno if it's equivalent.
it depends a lot on which character limbus is going to portray her as
the painter? doing fucked up things for art
the daughter? being used for fucked up art purposes
wild card? she's the monkey, who the fuck knows where they'll go with that
people keep theorizing the sword is going to be her daughter but i don't buy it
the sword is her paintbrush, her daughter was the paint
I hope she's the monkey. I am not sure what the monkey in hell screen was supposed to represent aside from perhaps yoshihide's true nature without society's bias. But I feel like the monkey is where the money is
the part of him that cared for her before he got possessed by art demons, i guess?
but yeah i think you're right that's where the good stuff will be, give ryoshu a split personality with a conscience that stops her from doing bad stuff for art purposes and then have her slice it out of her head fight club-style
no on second thought that's fucking retarded, don't listen to me
I was thinking about that, but it doesn't quite fit. Yoshihide never quite stopped caring for her even if he was lets say, negligent of her when working
perhaps she is everyone?
both the painter who had to see suffering in order to paint Hell, the daughter who was made to suffer that the painter could see Hell in order to paint it, and the monkey who tries to perform his duties and pull everyone away from Hell, but fails.
Best bleed ID to complement Kuro Hong Lu and Kuro Ryo?
fuk I need to finish todays mirror dung before patch right
Hurry before all is lost
You need to do the mirror dungeon for today and then do 5 quick ones tomorrow before the update.
anon, the update maint lines up with the weekly reset
Not this time. Read the patch notes on twitter
that being the case, doesn't that mean that you'll use your weekly runs doing more for less unless you specifically are going for random crates for thread? or do we know you can get two weekly bonuses that way?
s this another hodlfag vs grindGOD situation?
The update functions as a second reset basically, since all of the new shit is coming in on top of the new battle past quests
So yes, you have 4 hours to get your weeklies in, and then you can do them again
when does this 4 hour period start?
6:00 AM to 10:00 AM KST.
>Middle of when I need to be asleep
fun cool fun fun great
I feel you there, night work is a bitch
At the usual daily reset time.
wait there is 4h between weekly reset and new patch?
its time to join grindfags(chads?) huh
It's march 15th in kst, still not the time don't worry
Link the motherfucker that you think is responsible for derailing the thread and pray to mods to ban he

Why the fuck are you playing a project moon game if you hate literature
I don't hate literature, I hate Gankerfags. I explicitly stated that
>I absolutely hate Gankerfags they ruin all they touch
First off, you're in the wrong fucking thread. Second, that first guy was just asking about the very relevant books related to the characters.

Aight cool, fuck you too game.
I swear to god if the Head is redeemed at the end of the PMverse, I'm going to distort
They won't be. You can't redeem an AI with binary logic
I bet they're gonna have a spiel of their ultimate goal is wanting everyone to be as human as possible, so they're trying to push them to their absolute limits, that's why the city sucks so much. This is me basing it mainly off how they soft-banned guns and want people to struggle to murder each other via close combat.
That’s been the theory for a while yeah
Why would they need redemption? The Head has done nothing wrong, it's not their fault people don't pay taxes. Maybe they should think about the consequences first
Any of these I should prioritize uptieing? Yi Sang has been MVP pretty consistently thus far.
Also I got this funny ball
