  1. Do you already have a general idea of where you'd like to go? I've only been to Japan once and so I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to the more hidden locations, but I would definitely recommend visiting Nara. It's really close if you plan to visit either Kyoto or Osaka and it's probably the most surreal experience I've ever had. I'm sure you've seen pictures, but there are hundreds of deer walking around freely in Nara, and they're quite friendly as well. It also has a very nice temple area with a giant buddha statue if you're more interested in the cultural bits. Aside from that, as a fellow Pokemon fan, I'd recommend going to a Pokemon Center. I think there are multiple locations, I've personally been to the one in Tokyo's Ikebukuro district. They have a ton of merchandise and at the time I'd been there, it was super cheap due to the Euro being comparatively strong. (I may or may not have bought way too much because of that) There's also a manga museum in Kyoto which I'd recommend for rainy days. It's all in Japanese if I recall correctly, so unless you're somewhat proficient in Japanese it's less about actually being able to read the books and more about the novelty of the sheer volume of manga they have, but it can still be worthwhile. I could go on and on, but maybe you can let us know which cities you're planning to visit?
  2. Can't say I'm surprised. I've never understood why people follow this guy in the first place, he's the epitome of everything wrong with YouTube. Clickbait, horrible thumbnails, fake giveaways, overpriced merchandise, and probably worst of all, he's barely contributing anything valuable to the overall conversation about a product. The majority of his videos are simply cashing in on whatever controversy is going on at a given point.
  3. I don't know that it's reasonable to evaluate a game for what it could have been. Many games could be way better than they are if they wouldn't have had to consider time or budget constraints, but that's just not how it works. Given Nintendo and Gamefreak's record with the Pokemon franchise, I think many people simply overestimated what this game could've been. If there were any desire to make a big, all-encompassing Pokemon title featuring a lot of what fans (myself included) wished for (multiple regions, Pokemon following you, a complete Pokedex, etc), then there would've always been the opportunity to create it. Pokemon has always been artifically limited to handheld devices, but it could've easily been the next AAA home console title in full 3D. Whatever their reason for not doing it may be, in the meantime there'll be incremental Pokemon titles every couple of years. I think it's fine to like them, and by no means are they ever truly bad games. I can see why people are disappointed though, a franchise the size of Pokemon could easily be expected to be treated way differently.
  4. Good old Germany. I really hate how fucked up our infrastructure is.
  5. My first car was a manual and I badly wanted my current one to be a manual, too, but I wasn't able to find any good used offerings outside of really low-spec ones. So right now I'm driving a DCT and it's fantastic, but I would love to go back to a manual in the future. It's just a lot more engaging, even if it is admittedly slower. If everything goes well, I'd like to purchase a manual '15 - '18 GT3/GT4 in the not so distant future. I'd love to take the chance as long as manual ICE cars (NA ones in particular) are still around.
  6. I honestly can't think of any job in IT that I can see being replaced anytime soon. Network and infrastructure are always going to be hugely important for companies of all sizes. No trend or advancement is suddenly going to eliminate the requirement for a local infrastructure of some sort, and of course that means there will also be a need for people to secure, maintain and extend that network. Is there any specific reasoning as to why you think it's going downhill?
  7. Cool! I feel like a grumpy old man saying this, but I've never gotten used to Discord and I can't bring myself to use it consistently. It has its perks, no doubt, but I still prefer Teamspeak. The only real advantage I see is the fact that it is free, but I'd never had a problem finding someone who hosts a TS server.
  8. I think Linus mentioned in one of their videos that putting anything Apple in the title gets them more views, hence the frequent mentions of iPhones, MacBooks and such even if the review has nothing to do with Apple products in and of itself. At the end of the day you can't blame a business for optimizing their content in a way that allows them to make more money. I understand your complaint as well, but then I suppose it's a matter of either being understanding of these practices or simply stopping to follow, which is of course reasonable if you don't enjoy their content anymore.
  9. Literally the same holds true for German cars. Here in Germany a lot of people own a German car, while they're only selling the upper-level models in the US, hence supporting the luxury image over there. And in my experience, they're fairly reliable. I've only had German cars and none of them had any major issues.
  10. I disagree. Regardless of whether we're talking about German, Italian or British cars, while they're admittedly expensive, you mostly get what you're paying for. A Mercedes E class feels leagues above most other cars on the road in terms of comfort, ride quality and general luxury. A C63S on the Autobahn? That thing is a fucking freight train, it never stops pulling, even beyond 250 kph. Now, are the options overpriced? Definitely. And do you really need an E class to get around town and go grocery shopping? Of course not. But if you value what they offer, most manufacturers offer fantastic cars nowadays, especially Mercedes. And I say this as someone who dailies a sports car and couldn't care less about luxury.
  11. Definitely not exclusively for Russian channels, the German satire channel "heute show" has a similar information reading "ZDF is a German public broadcast service" (see below).
  12. I think most of Linus's gripes with the Apple Watch (like the Google Mail problem) are issues that the respective developer of the software has to address, not Apple. Using the default mail client on the Apple watch, I can read full mails just fine. Another prominent example of this is WhatsApp, which doesn't have a client for the Apple Watch. That's not Apple's fault though, Telegram offers one, so it's clearly doable. Other than that I liked the review. The 11 Pro seems like a great device, albeit at the usual Apple premium price. Still bummed about the loss of 3D Touch, though. I'll admit it had limited usefulness, but it had so much potential. The only thing they would've had to improve was discoverability.
  13. I don't really understand what Google is trying to achieve with the Pixel line-up, anyway. They're not competitive enough to gain any sort of considerable market share on either end of the price spectrum, and it always seems as though their hardware comes with a big questionmark while still costing as much as their premium competitors. This just seems like icing on the cake that is a lack of any concrete vision for the product. If it's not even tightly integrated on the software side, what is its selling point?
  14. I love dogs, but they come with the inherent problem of being a pretty high-maintenance pet. For a single or even a two person household working normal full-time jobs, it's really tough to manage having one. That being said, I'd still prefer having a dog over a cat, I just feel like they're giving you back more than a cat typically would.
  15. This is the first time I'm remotely interested in a Call of Duty title and then they're coming up with such ridiculous numbers for their storage requirements. I honestly wouldn't mind if Germany would finally do something about the terrible network infrastructure over here. Having 16 Mbits was okay back in 2009, but ten years later, I have to buffer 4K content to watch it and it takes me literal days to download games that don't come with any sort of CD.
