  1. Just curious, do the weapons in HROT look like toys to you?
  2. Because, in my view, the artist did a good job at making it look like something dangerous.
  3. Well ok. I suppose they don't look like the kind of thing and army would carry to war, but I think if I saw a toddler playing with this thing I'd probably try to get it off them.
  4. Uh, are you talking about all the quake games or just quake 2 and 3? I always thought of quake 3's weapons being sort of 'sports' versions of guns which would be appropriate for the setting. Quake 2... I donno. I just think the strange use of coloured lighting and poly budget together gives that impression. Quake 1's guns don't really look like toys imo.

    Obscure, Hardly Known Bad Games/Guilty Pleasures.

    There is a mod that let's you downgrade to the OG Gothic 2 if you're interested called 'Gothic 2 Classic'. It's even available through the steam workshop.

    what FPS has the prettiest weapons

    Gunfire Reborn's got a good set of shooty bangs, pokey sticks and the odd squeezy lizard boy:

    Oldest game you've actually enjoyed.

    OG Ultima, but I knew how to cheese the heck out of the main quest.

    Describe a Movie/Series You've Never Watched

    Gorge Orwell's 1984: A grim 'What if' scenario where a few people announce they are offended at a comedian's offensive joke.

    Describe a Movie/Series You've Never Watched

    Andrei Tarkovsky's STALKER (1979) Set in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone after a second disaster, The Protagonist, known only as Marked One owning to the word STALKER being tattoo on his arm, wakes up after being thrown from a 'Death truck' and taken to the local trader known as Sidorovich. Marked One, with no memories, and a PDA with only one instruction: 'Kill Strelok' is given several tasks by Sidorovich for 'saving his life' and sets off to find Strelok, and hopefully, answers.

    What Was Your Last Purchase?

    Steel capped Red Back boots and some Hi-vis long sleeve shirts for a new job

    The Queen is Dead. Long Live the King.

    She died of old age, in a literal palace surrounded by jewels and armed guards. Nothing the most dedicated republican could say is going to change the fact that she pretty much won. Still gonna lol though

    Elon Musk buys Twitter

    Culture war bullshit is extremely twitter. Also everything Doomkid said is %100 correct.

    How do you deal with ghosting?

    Ahh, circles of salt, some reading up on the history of the residence for any gruesome murders or disturbed burial sites, your bells, books and candles and anything else a good grimoire asks for. Wraiths usually just want to move on.

    Elon Musk buys Twitter

    Well he might call it a "de facto town square" but it is quite literally a company he now owns.

    Activity in other older FPS custom maps

    These are more on the new side but: Duke Nukem Alien Armageddon is both a map set and a gameplay overhaul for the base game along with 'Dukeing it out in DC and Caribbean life's a beach' Blood: Death Wish you've probably heard of it but if not: 3 episode map set for Blood, compatible with Blood: a Fresh supply.

    What is like to live in your country or city?

    I think the thing I'd warn foreigners about more then our snakes spiders is our sun. I've wandered around New York and Havana all day in the middle of summer for days and I sort of got the beginnings of slight sunburn, but a few hours at pretty much any beach without 30+ sunblock during daylight here and you are going to be red, in a lot of pain, and shedding skin for the next week yet. Skin Cancer kills more people here then any of the murder fish. I've gotten burned because I've taken too long hanging out the washing.
  19. I'm sorry, but stopping people expressing their anxieties about what is a pretty Big Deal because war is a bummer really doesn't sit right with me. Cancer's a bummer to, but I would never ask someone not to post about themselves or a loved one dealing with it even on an old video game forum. I won't bullshit you by saying that a thread about a war won't be political, nor will I say that I am a galaxy brained centrist who doesn't have a preferred side. But I think we're mostly smart enough not to do start cheer leading or getting into weird conspiracies. If it's just one or two threads focusing on people and nobody starts, say, posting links for donations to questionable militias or playing down how bad a nuclear war would be, I don't see the issue.

    Any Toughs about the Saints Row Reboot? (super offtopic)

    I don't mind the delay. If the GTA remaster crashing and burning spooked them then they needed so be spooked imo. As for the trailer. Ehh... it's got a bit of a Fortnight/MCU Whedon banter that I'm not a fan of, which I think has less to do with sjws or whatever and more to do with Fortnight/MCU making all the money in the world and setting the template for action comedy. Anyways, Whedon banter won't matter if it's as fun to drive around like an asshole as it was in 2 and 3.

    The Activision Blizzard Situation ¿Any Thoughts?

    I do like that both Activision and Ubisoft require their own launchers for their games making boycotting them very easy.

    Best singleplayer levels in FPS history?

    The Office Complex in Black Mesa Half Life 1 remake. The Crowbar Collective just went insane with the level of detail with working fire sprinklers and emergency broadcasts over the radios. Atmosphere is off the charts.

    RockPaperShotgun's 2021 Top 100 PC Games of All Time

    Look, I love Deus Ex and Fallout 1 & 2 but they aren't exactly the most accessible games. I'm just impressed they went with Fallout New Vegas rather then Fallout 4.

    GTA The Trilogy/Definitive Edition

    Saints Row 2 on steam might not be the best port but at least volition hasn't crushed gentlemen of the row, nor are they likely to yank it from online stores.
