  1. I want to know how you dealt with the trauma of Portal's Portal mechanics, considering they are weird doors you never meet, so they doing surprises you never thought off or expecting because you never know that kind of a door. How do i know the frog-like monster will curse me when they blow up? And that curse half my health until i find a cure...and i am deep under sewer crawling with monsters have no idea how to or going where to end the curse...... (oh, i know already of course) The same way you learn that goombas in Mario kill you when you run into them head-on. I actually still want to know how you suffered the insufferable cruelty of Portal.
  2. I lost my **** at I want to know how you dealt with the trauma of Portal's Portal mechanics, considering they are weird doors you never meet, so they doing surprises you never thought off or expecting because you never know that kind of a door.
  3. Replayed The Walking Dead: Season 2. Kenny is seriously the worst. I hadn't noticed just how much of a creep he is the first time around, but the way he starts gleefully sniffing the afterbirth of a woman he doesn't know just confirms "WHY WON'T YOU JUST DIE ALREADY, KENNY?!"
  4. Hypothetical question: What if foreveralones who feel entitled to women as objects simply because they are male, sitting in front of computers railing against the "vast feminist conspiracy" made a reasonable, good-faith attempt to understand what life is like for a woman, from a woman's perspective? Just kidding! Actually it's a rhetorical question because that's never going to happen.
  5. I am looking forward to Tourette: Pride of Numerator, the spiritual successor to Planescrape: Tournament.
  6. Such a failure of linguistic mores is deleterious to the intelligence of all those who write complete sentences, organize their writing in paragraph form, and have the cojones to use the Oxford Comma. Actually, funny story: The writing in Skyrim is dismal.

  8. I'd suggest the rangers take over the new ghost town of Highwater, except they're astoundingly incompetent so they'd probably start ****ting in the water supply and all die of cholera. Considering how they dealt with Ace's mishap, it's clear that these are not the heroes Arizona deserves.
  9. Neverwhere, in which Mr. Croup now eternally sounds like Anthony Head, in my head. I think Mr. Croup would have liked that awful pun. Also Blood Meridian, for what it's worth.
  10. I started a new game since the "gold" release. Going to try Ag Center this time since everyone at Ranger Citadel bitches at you if you save the town full of water in the middle of the Arizona ****ing desert.
  11. I find something to bitch about in Skyrim every time I play it. That's the magic of Bethesda, they can make a beautiful world full of rancid **** and somehow it's still enjoyable to varying degrees. Playing devil's advocate now. If it wasn't a Bethesda game, would you really care that much about NPCs sitting in one place and saying the same lines? It really is partly Bethesda's fault for raising expectations about their NPCs, but even so. Every open world/sandbox type game has the uncanny valley hidden in its geography. Moving on... The thieves' guild questline and everything associated with it is pure unmitigated garbage and the absolute worst part of Skyrim. Ok, the armor looks kind of cool, but that's what crafting mods are for.
  12. I haven't experienced such a thing even in beta, but then again I have a fantastic rig that runs Metro: LL without a frame dropped. Brag, swag, pirouette and bow. I do believe there are *whirl* certain programmes intended to alleviate such issues available free of charge. *GRAND FLOURISH*
  13. As with all Bethesda games, it's at its best when you're new to the game, just wandering around the landscape and discovering new sights, phenomena, etc., while it's at its worst when Bethesda's "writers" try to "write" "stories" and "characters" intended to be "interesting," "compelling," "deep" or such terms which denote some minute degree of value to the human brain in a narrative. I think I've said it before, but Bethesda's strong suit is level/"world" design and atmosphere; when it comes to actual depth of narrative and gameplay they falter or just fall flat on their figurative faces. i.e. They did an overall great job designing the "world" of Fallout 3, but mostly failed as far as populating it with decent stories and/or characters. If exploratin' an open world isn't your thing, then Bethesda should just be crossed off your list of developers whose games you're going to play.
  14. BLOOP BLOOP BLOOP. That's really all there is to say on the subject, reasonably. Unreasonably, Marx and Engels were naive idealists who gave autocrats a nice new excuse for doing ****ty things, because giving out free grain like in ancient Rome wasn't cutting it in 19th century Europe. It's all demagoguery no matter how you slice it. Unless AIs or aliens conquer us and force social equality onto us with patrolling Terminators and systematic dominance of the economy, human society will always be hierarchical. In the pre-industrial world, wealth flowed to power; in the industrial/post-industrial world, power flows to wealth. Communism as envisioned by Marx and Engels was basically anarchy but everyone is benign, selfless and benevolent. Which is stupid, for reasons we should all be aware of. On the other side of the coin we have the fallacious anti-social philosophies of people like Rand. Both extremes are wholly ignorant of human nature and often willfully ignorant of all scientific evidence.
  15. Spaten Optimator, only because it's damn near impossible to find an Eisenbock in the self-proclaimed "beervana" of Portland.
  16. For some reason, the La-Mulana 2 kickstarter achieved a level of stealth technology unheard of, so I wasn't aware of it to back it. Probably because the original freeware game is so much better than the Wii remake version and its ports (I swear, the original MSX homage version is leagues above the remake outside of compatibility with operating systems beyond windows XP.) Still, the demo was fun and I will buy it and many curries to go with it. Warmachine Tactics, which I backed who knows how long ago, has promise, but like most early-access things I'm a bit leery of entering the metaphorical deep end of the (metaphorical) pool so I'm just going to sit on that like a hen on an egg until it (metaphorically) hatches. When I read the words "multiplayer" and "online" I start playing Team Fortress 2 and remind players that having a hat with stupid clouds of flies around it doesn't make you immune to explosions.
  17. Shadowrun: Dragonfall: Director's: Colon-err, Cut. I get the feeling the only reason it exists is to be a smartphone/tablet app and PC release is more of an afterthought than a primary intention. Still, the added content and character growth/customization for companions is a much bigger plus than the new UI meant for touch screens.
  18. Being a billionaire and not having to update Minecraft seems like an ideal situation for Notch. What's with the video? Why are you writing your post in English if you believe we all speak Spanish?
  19. That thread title is loaded. That said, I don't know why anyone would be surprised by American police doing something like this.
  20. Don't get your hopes up, it's been in a static boondoggle for years. 24 years and there's no end in sight.
  21. Is it online multiplayer only like the recent(ish) SimCity rehash?
  22. None if you're going to refer to player character as "toon," all if you're going to properly refer to them as all possible PCs.
  23. If the beta isn't "early access," what is? I mean, ignoring the English language as you are.
