Some memorable quotes from The Matrix

You get used to it. I don't even see the loss. All I see is better head, luck head, next head, time.

Word of advice, you see a GiftBot giveaway with check boxes instead of radio buttons, you do what we do. Check. You check your ass off.

Come on, stop trying to win things and win things

Mr. Underposterson, you look surprised to lose. Again.

I participated in two giveaways. My victories are coming down now.
No, lieutenant, you have already lost.

In for Men of Medan. Haven't won anything so far, guess it balances out my luck with the old GiftBot where I probably snagged a dozen different things, including stuff for PS4 and XB1 so not just leftover Humble Bundle codes or something.

-The original Homer gif was 4 frames and Giftbot's is 25 (but I limit it to 24). So I duplicated the Homer layers 6 times to equal Giftbot's and then played with there timing to approximate the original Simpson's clip.
-At the beginning of the last Giveaway thread I used an online tool (which I can't seem to remember) to extract the frames from the Giftbot animated .png.
-I put all the Giftbot frames in a folder and distort/ warped them to the right perspective.
-I erased Homer's face and enough of the blue background to show the Giftbot layers placed underneath.
-The bottom layer is the blue sky and a layer above that is a redrawn back of the crown and his body.
-Then frame by frame I moved the Giftbot and redrawn layer to move with Homer's animation.
-I merged everything into 24 distinct layers and went in, fixing and redrawing anything wrong (like clipping).

Clip Studio Paint can do animated PNGs (APNG) and they turn out smoother. Just now I think I figured out the timing to make it look better and I might try a better version later.
Wow, I didn't think editing gifs took this much work

Even though Serah and Noel are the "main" characters of 13-2, the whole trilogy is still about Lightning. Plus the cover with her and Caius looks much better than the one with Serah




I enjoyed 13-3, but ymmv. It's pretty fun/interesting, but extremely flawed. The story is garbage (picks up a bit near the end) but the gameplay/music/character customization is great. The first main area "Luxerion" is pretty bad but the other ones are good.

I didn't have much issues with the timer but you have the PC version so you can just use cheatengine to pause/give yourself infinite time.



I remember the playtime on my save being exactly 40hrs and 5min when I unlocked the interesting part of the game lol
Only the last game in the trilogy is actually about lightning.

FF13 is focused on Vanille and Fang, as they are the cause of the entire events.

FF13-2 focuses on Sara and Noel, light only appears for a few scenes.
