But that's not what Otaku atually means in Japan? It doesn't refer to just an anime fan. Its meaning over there is more like creepy jobless basement dweller who happens to be obsessed with nerdy stuff. Which is amusing since the anime fandom in the West didn't really get the memo about how stigmatized the term is, and thinks it just means anime fan.

Yes, the word "weeaboo" has the exact same connotation here. It's amazing how similar the words are.

Not really? Weaboo means someone obsessed with japanese culture and wanting to be japanese without really understanding it, often as a result of only learning about it from anime and manga.

While Otaku usually means someone obsessed with anime and manga who wants to engage in normal social interaction without really understanding it.

I ran a battle in SSB43DS for long enough that all background music stopped completely. I had to restart the game in order to listen to anything other than noises and voices. I have my tunes back now, but not having them for an hour was unnerving.

I didn't have to lose any data, though, so whew.

Wait, it doesn't loop? That doesn't make a huge amount of sense.

Fun fact: I have this game on bootleg cartridge. The battery died a month after I bought it, so I can't save. Also faulty programming means I can't even reach the last city

After an hour of looping the same song, it will break and all background music, whether on one stage or another, or in the main menu, will stop.

i feel like shouting at some idiots of a very specific variety that if you recall what variety of idiots i have specific dislike towards you might recognize

but i don't want to come to where they usually are, i'd rather have them come here so i can slam them on home turt

* LordSlowpoke writes down slams into [specific idiot term]slam.txt

the wtf here is that i don't usually look forward to shouting at said idiots, it just happens

Huh. Looking through Toady's post history to find DF2010 FOTF questions, instead found out the exact kind of thing that I'm pretty sure got Various Nonsense taken down.

Oh god I can see why people are so annoyed by incessant redtext derails now.

Yeah, apparently Toady used to have a much more informal/personal approach to the forums. Seems to have stopped doing that kind of thing as the game became more popular.
