    What games should I get based on my wishlist?

    1. Powerslave isn't bad, and I enjoyed it. I just figured there were better games on your wishlist. But yes, avoid Redneck Rampage. They are utter crap. 2. Yes, get VTMB, it's a fantastic and under rated game. It's a shame that it was rushed out the way it was, but it's extremely enjoyable. But again, patch it, and don't do a Malkavian playthrough the first time. It makes every other character seem pale in comparison, with the possible exception of the Nosferatu. 3. If you played it on the Xbox, it was probably Turok: Evolution. Which I particularly enjoyed on the Gamecube, but it's widely reviled. However I think it's the second best Turok game after the first one, but many people would disagree with me. I think 3, Rage Wars, and 2008 are all terrible. Turok 2 is playable, but, and I hate to quote Family Guy's description of The Godfather, it insists on itself. It takes itself far more seriously than it has a right to. Turok 1 (and again, Nightdive's remaster of it is fantastic) just feels like a completely enjoyable romp through the jungle with an amazing arsenal and varied enemies. I've never played a game that felt quite the same, except maybe Evolution, which has never seen a re-release. Turok 2008 was terrible, and I don't think 3 and Rage Wars will ever see a re-release, since none of them were ever released on PC. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. There was a PC port of Evolution, but it sounds like it was a complete mess. The GC version still fun, aside from the pterodactyl flying levels.

    What Was Your Last Purchase?

    May I ask why? I'm just curious, because I'm still using the same disc that my Mom got me back in 1994. I've just backed up the folder onto CD's or USB's for the last 20 years. Still have the original CD as well, and I'm not sure if it works, but copying the folder from computer to computer seems to work fine.

    What games should I get based on my wishlist?

    I am kind of biased, because I love the games, but I would highly recommend at least Serious Sam: Second Encounter. The first game does get kind of tiresome because it's the same desert theme throughout, but Second Encounter adds new environments, enemies, and weapons, and in my opinion is the best game in the series. And Turok is one of my favorite FPS games of all time, and Nightdive's remaster is great. Turok 2, I never cared for, and even with the great job on the remaster, I still don't. After suffering through Lair of the Blind Ones, I completely lose interest in the game. Happened on the N64, still happens on PC, it just completely fails to hold my interest. The levels are just too long, repetitive, and convoluted to be enjoyable. AVP 2000 is a great game, the Marine campaign in particular is extremely tense and worth a playthrough if you can get it on sale. But the Alien campaign is enjoyable as well. The Predator campaign seems a bit too easy, but it's still fun. Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines is really enjoyable, but it does have to be modded to fix the many glitches it launched with. And if you do play it, don't do what I did and ignore all logical advice and play as a Malkavian on your first play through. Yes it's fun, yes you learn a lot about the world through their perception, but any subsequent play through is extremely boring after you've been through it as a Malkavian. And I would steer completely clear of the Redneck Rampage games, they are absolute trash. They're not even fun as a ridiculous curio of a bygone era, they are just bad games.

    It's new name is..

    We already require vaccinations for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella in the US. If you get bit by a wild or feral animal, you're given a rabies vaccine, if you get stuck by a rusty nail you're given a tetanus vaccine. The only reason polio vaccines aren't mandatory in the US is because we've effectively eradicated it. I've never had one, but my mother has. I've met people who wish the polio vaccine would've been around when they were kids, so they didn't have to walk around with a malformed foot or a leg brace for the rest of their life. I say yes, everyone should be required to get vaccinated unless they have a clear medical health condition that would make vaccination dangerous. And so far, I have yet to read about any medical condition that would prevent someone from getting a COVID vaccination. I'm sure they might exist, but legitimate health reasons to not be vaccinated have to be extremely rare. Hell, we probably could've prevented COVID from becoming another "Common Cold" if we would've tried to mitigate it's spread early on. But no, people were too concerned with their "freedumbs" and doing whatever the Hell they pleased, and not wanting to be told what to do, that we ended up with the current situation. "I just want to get back to normal!" "Well then stop spreading the fucking virus! Stay home, if you have to go out, wear a damn face mask, and stay six feet apart." "But I don't want to! I want to get in everyone's face and tell them just how ridiculous I think this whole thing is!" "Well... this is going to last a Hell of a lot longer."

    You spelled freedumb wrong. But yeah, I got my six (well, seven month) booster on Tuesday, and got a fancy Princess Peach band-aid. So far I have no regerts.

    Strapping your phone to your face?

    Couldn't tell you, I've never tried one. I've never been that interested in VR in the first place. But the amount of cheap VR cell phone headsets that got stolen when I worked at Toys R Us in 2016-2017 tells me they're popular enough to get stolen constantly. I don't think they're particularly good, but they at least work. And yeah, for $20 it's not a huge loss if they're complete crap. Personally I wouldn't do it, but I just don't feel like having a fake reality blaring directly in my face. It sounded neat when I was 8, now, not so much.

    Best singleplayer levels in FPS history?

    Thank you for reminding me of that, it's been a long time since I've played Zerstorer. I'm sure there's plenty of Quake mods that I've forgotten about in the last 20 years that I should play again, but that was a good one. The Nehahra Project being another one.

    rats learning how to play doom

    I just watched Willard, the 1971 version, for the first time two days ago. So this is really funny. I had seen the 2003 version (which I prefer, because you know, R. Lee Ermey and Crispin Glover) a few times before, but it just seems really odd that this cropped up just now. I mean, it's interesting. Rats like running, and they like treats. So getting a treat for the correct behaviour, and continuing that behaviour just makes sense. But it is neat, and creepy in the same vein. I wonder if they really think they're running through that hallway, or they're just rolling on a ball and getting treats for doing it. Or if they think that imp is an actual threat, or they just realize if they see this specific set of light in their path, and they press a button to shoot it, they get a treat. Again, kind of neat, kind of creepy. Rats are a very successful species, so I don't think they're exactly dumb. I'm just wondering how much of a videogame they think is reality, or if they realize they're just on a ball with successive images being presented and if they do the right thing they get a treat. And yeah, having just watched the original Willard a few days ago, I thought it was funny, and thus had to comment.
  10. I mean, I still use it: That being said, I'm still using a version and skin that I downloaded in the mid 2000's. It's just always worked for me, and I put it in my music folder. Which I back up and transfer when I need to switch computers. I mean, they really kind of hit the nail on the head early on. It's kind of hard to branch out after that point. I wish them the best of luck with whatever their doing, it's always been a good music player. I just don't personally like streaming services.
  11. This is some information that could've been brought to my attention YESTERDAY! Quite literally, I decided to try out the work that you've done on Dark Forces, and it's absolutely great. Getting to run this smooth in Windows, and with resolution scaling, I mean it's absolutely amazing the work that you've put into it. I did play a little of the GOG version, but I haven't really played, and completed, the game since 1996. And that was on DOS, where it played just fine. So to be able to play it again on a modern system without having to dink around with Dosbox is amazing, so kudos to you. That aside, I decided to try it out last night, and I was stuck on that damn sewer level for at least an hour. I missed one switch towards the beginning, the one that raises the sewer level. It is so easy to miss switches in this game. Great game. But it seems like the level designers started out their dev map with "Piss the player off". Still, very impressive what you've accomplished. I look forward to seeing the finished product, because it already plays really nicely.

    GTA The Trilogy/Definitive Edition

    I'm pretty sure that was the joke.

    How Do Ya Like Your Coffee?

    I've always preferred it strong and black, and I usually have two cups in the morning. However lately I've been putting a smallish amount of heavy whipping cream in the first cup, just because it adds some protein and vitamins, along with all the fat. It doesn't taste as good as black coffee, but the added nutrients help. Particularly if I don't really have time for breakfast.

    What is your favorite memories with windows xp?

    Spending a few hours trying to get Blood to run on it. And eventually after a few downloads, it did. Happy times.

    Best singleplayer levels in FPS history?

    Quite a few have been mentioned, but I didn't see this The Facility from GoldenEye. I don't know how many hours of my youth were spent playing that level, both in single player, and again in multiplayer. As as the multiplayer map "Felicity" in Perfect Dark. It was just the perfect level for that game and the technology at the time. Although Surface 1/2 were really good. Bunker 2 was really good. And honestly I loved the train. That was a really good game.
