    Weirdest/Rarest games that you own?

    My dad has quite a few old Sierra PC games in the basement on a shelf. Never tried to get any of them working (don't have any compatible computers), but we've got the original Leisure Suit Larry (1-3 I think), the Space Quest collection (I-IV), Space Quest V, the King's Quest collection and various others. I don't know how rare they actually are, but they are all complete-in-box. While I've never played any of them, the quirky in-universe magazines that Sierra put in all of their games are simply a delight to flip through:

    Getting annoyed by some words

    I'm wearing a literal fedora while reading and it feels like I'm wearing several stacked on top of one another. I have very strong opinions on this subject, but I've found that other people have already expressed practically the same in a much more concise manner than I would have; so I don't think I need to regurgitate redundant points, as that would be a pointless recap.

    Share a random fact about yourself

    The necklace for which my online persona is named and for which my avatar is an edited image of broke last week. I've been wearing this cheap plastic dollar store necklace since I was in Grade 3 and without it I feel like I've lost something, as if a vital piece of myself has disappeared and needs to be reclaimed. I could get another, "better" necklace, but it just wouldn't be the same...

    I think John Carmack was wrong in regards to a story in video games.

    In regards to the quote, I'm honestly sick of hearing about it. What Carmack said is correct for some kinds of games, but not others. It's simply a narrow minded thing he said once that for some stupid reason had to be recorded and reproduced without context and without end. Narrative is simply one of the many ingredients that can be used when making any kind of game, the ways in which it is used depends both upon the skill of the developer and the kind of experience they are trying to make. Whether or not you like the end result is on you personally.
  6. Aside from Doom Eternal, this is the only other game I absolutely need to play at launch: I'm looking forward to seeing this game drop a second nuke on EA's "singleplayer games are dying" bullshit.
  7. Just watched the entirety of Bethesda's showcase (sort of, I skipped the card game crap) and was quite pleased with the announcements. Here are the summary bullet points of my general thoughts: Doom: Eternal looks awesome and once we see some proper gameplay I'll probably cave in and preorder a collector's edition if it exists (like I did with the last game, I don't regret that purchase one bit). Wolfenstein: Youngblood looks neat, I'm sure me and my brother will enjoy playing this game through Coop. I just bought Prey yesterday so the new content they've unveiled is exciting. Starting off RAGE 2's section with a live band was odd, but at least they delivered on some tasty gameplay footage afterwards. Fallout 76 looks like an interesting departure that Bethesda seems to think is worth the risk, but since I don't have any friends on PSN and Destiny 1's bad aftertaste has yet to leave my mouth I might skip this one if future info releases fail to persuade me. I won't comment on the Elder Scrolls: Online/Blades stuff since MMOs and mobile games don't interest me. I enjoyed seeing Bethesda make fun of the accusations that they've been milking Skyrim too much. Finally got an official announcement for Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI, and I'm looking forward to hearing more about those games in the coming years. I feel like TES VI announcement is probably the one people are going to go the most crazy over, despite Todd Howard almost blatantly stating that they are only announcing it to make people stop asking them if it's in development. I probably won't watch any of the other press conferences since none of them really seem to have anything that interests me. Except maybe Sony, but I don't think I'll be tuning in and I'll just be watching the highlights later. The Last of Us: Part II is probably the main thing I'm looking forward to seeing Sony talk about. Don't have an Xbox, so I couldn't really care less about what Microsoft is doing for the most part (though I did watch the trailer for Cyberpunk). I didn't watch it but from what I hear, EA's press conference was a bit of a boring disaster, so that makes me happy.

    HeXen takes place in Cronos, not Parthoris. Each game in the Serpent Rider Trilogy takes place in a separate universe.

    Rage 2 leaked?

    This makes me sad... I'm sure they have their reasons, but seeing an id property not utilize idTech just feels wrong to me. I have an absurd (and probably unjustifiable) amount of love for idTech, so I'd love to see more Bethesda games use it. The squealing sound I made when I booted up Dishonored 2 for the first time and saw that it runs on an idTech derivative probably would have rendered a hamster deaf. Regardless, I'm optimistic about this game based on the little snippets seen at this point. I liked RAGE despite it's shortcomings, and so far I approve of the tone they've chosen.

    Just looking at this is physically painful for me, I think my soul screamed when I saw it.

    What is like to live in your country or city?

    I live on a farm in Alberta, Canada. The closest towns are unfortunately going through the process of degradation through neglect from vital third parties (I'm referring mostly to the provincial government and the school division, several people in the high-ups seriously need to be kicked in the ass with a steel cleat). Growing up it was a perfectly good town, and I'm not speaking nostalgically. Literally every year something vital slips away because the only people who care don't have the power to save it. Those with the authority to enact the most change are sadly also those who live in a different area with a different population with different needs, and hence don't have the slightest clue what this place actually requires for proper improvement and simply makes things worse. They also make a point of never discussing any changes with anyone living in the area they are going to be affecting, which is kind of a double edged sword to be honest. While I'd love to have some input there are plenty of stupid people who shouldn't be given a microphone. The adult population is perfectly reasonable from my experience, but some of the younger folk reek of stupidity bred by social devolution. This is not isolated either, small rural towns everywhere in Alberta are facing similar problems of neglect. The climate where I live is very irregular. Winters vary from harsh blizzards 24-7 to completely nonexistent (mostly the latter). Summers vary from unbearably hot to boiling alive. There are no in-betweens. The only consistent thing here is the wind. The wind never stops. Thankfully, we don't get tornadoes here, just massive out-of-control grass fires whenever the local inept farmer decides to operate a terribly maintained combine in the middle of the driest field imaginable. In spite of the large amount of negativity I've presented, I still love my town and I'm not going to abandon it because of it's problems.

    Oh god... My brain does this to me all the time. I don't understand why my brain needs to run through advanced scientific calculations about how I should have spoken to the cashier yesterday when it's already done and was a perfectly pleasant encounter anyway... ALL WHILE I'M TRYING TO SLEEP! Actually no, not all the time; only when I have important shit to do the next day like write exams or get up early so that I can go somewhere...
