    Am I the only one whose patience is running thin with Dirk? He's just not that interesting, especially when you compare him to Dave and Rose, who he seems to be a combination of.
    Maybe its intentional, Roxy seems to think this aswell.

    These conversations between him and the autoresponder are hilarious though
    The autoresponder is hilarious, but Dirk himself is a bit of a pansy. He seems way more like a poser than Dave. It seems less like he's a Dave/Equius combination and more like he's becoming Eridan.

    he's basically dave but smarter and more composed, the hilarity is in the things he does rather than the things he says

    yeah ok sure

    and build a destructive con air robo bunny, a fucking predator bot to fuck with jake, the autoresponder to fuck with everyone, sawtooth abd squarewave which will probably be awesome later when the former shows up, rewrote a children's pony book into a humorously depressing retelling, etc

    putting bro's combat ability into a kid just seems kind of iffy to me. dave couldn't kill a derse agent even after entering the medium and alchemizing some gear. now dirk's supposed to be an identifiable main character that can idly lop off the biggest one's head, and still do the puppet-fu of his previous iteration?

    bro was a mysterious character, as with all the guardians, and that's where most of the fun was with him. now that we know more about dirk, he just doesn't really have much else going for him

    See though he's going to try and come out to Jake and that's only going to end incredibly poorly. In all likelihood Jake will react rudely to the advances, thinking that Dirk is the Autoresponder. Either way, Jake will turn him down because he is not a homosexual and Dirk is not blue and then Dirk will act like a sadsack for the rest of the story.

    I hope I am proven wrong, but this is what is probably going to happen.

    I don't think Dirk's a poser, I think he's just more of a schemer. Dave just did stuff, but Dirk is supposedly planning things. The only way to know for sure is to just watch.

    You have to keep in mind that Dirk is older and, because of the Scratch, has been "bred" to be a warrior. Plus he has puppetkind and took HB by surprise.

    just from what we've seen i can almost guarantee dirk's not actually going to hit on jake, and eveb if he does he won't spend a lot of time moping about it

    I was just talking about his combat ability. If you find him interesting or not is up to you. But there is plenty of justification for his ability.

    i find him interesting because i get the feeling that there's more to him than he's letting on

    like said above he's a schemer who interweaves complex layers of irony into everything he does

    keep in mind that we've barely even begun to watch him do shit

    That'd be a sad thought except it doesn't look like Alpha Bro made robots, so he might not have made the auto-responder.

    Dave has a Sawtooth and Squarewave poster in his room, so they would certainly be built.

    well, one lens is intact, so I don't see why why couldn't use it like an eye patch or monocle or something.

    Oh god no.

    This isn't 8bit in the slightest. This is literally one instrument. One ear hurting square wave.

    And sadly, that makes it not 8bit. The NES had 2 square waves, 1 triangle wave, 1 noise wave, and a DPCM sample channel. It can do 3 different types of pulses as well. This piece breaks the polyphony limit (more voices than allowed) consistently throughout the whole thing and never uses ANY of the other things the NES is capable of.

    So sorry, but it's just now 8bit. Though it is pretty cool that someone took the time to do this. If they changed it up a bit and made it truly 8bit it would kick ass.

    Radiation made an awesome proof of concept here:

    It sounds alright until you actually play something on an NES. Even Mario Bros has more advanced music than this.

    Like this can sound good but then you listen to something like the title screen to Megaman 3 or even something modern-made like the Endless Stage from Megaman 9 and you learn that "oh wait, just because it's an 8-bit song doesn't mean it has to sound like shit and be incredibly primitive!"

    Dirk is essentially the scratch version of Rose with a bit of Dave just like Jane is basically Jade with a little John. Other than the magnetic W I thought Rose was pretty boring throughout most of the story.
