A simple cheap pot just will not do. You need a pot that substantially moves the heat around the bottom and sides of the pot and doesn't focus on the direct heat.

Incidentally the cheap pot I'd used was more or less FUBAR, and I replaced it with a rock-solid new one. An absolutely absurdly large new one: I'm not good at conceiving the volume of a quart... or several dozen.

The one time I tried your chili I managed to burn the shit out of it while simmering, rendering the contents entirely inedible.

In a perfect world everybody would fucking love their job and strive to do it as best as possible on a daily basis. Rampant time wasting via the internet is a symptom, not a disease.

I was driving home one Sunday night (tail end of a several hour journey) and popped on the radio, tuned to the local NPR. Turns out Sunday nights locally are occupied by this music block titled Alpha Rhythms, during which a wildly eclectic selection of ambient, electronic, trance and otherwise moody tracks are played. My mind was reeling: a Jerry Goldsmith track from First Blood followed by a Lindsey Stirling number, Danny Elfman music from freakin BEETLEJUICE, a wide array of trippy electronica I'd never heard before, and, lo and behold, all interspersed with a discerning selection of tracks from video games including Last of Us and CLOCK TOWER!

I've sat through plenty of stupid NPR fund drives on my way to work, but this is the first time I've considered actually giving them money.

I am going back to being a lurker on bluesnews but before signing off I do really want to thank "Blue" for his years of work and his website. Hope he sees this.


Dude, why?

Because the internet is a massive waste of time!

Loved everything about the game... except maybe the slime room. Those fucking slimes.


What I do wish they'd do is invest some time in to the story.

It wasn't relevant. You're in a dungeon: escape before you die.

Anyways I doubt it's going to be any better in LoG2, as this time, your band of adventurers is... shipwrecked on a mysterious island!

News Comments > The Evil Within > 30 FPS "Not Supported"
44. Re: The Evil Within > 30 FPS Oct 9, 2014, 13:26 PHJF
 
Having a constant 30 FPS with no slowdowns is the best option when you are going for a cinematic experience.

The best option when going for a cinematic experience is to go to a fucking cinema.

One of the harshest criticisms which may be levied against a movie is that it is "like watching a video game." Well I got news for you, that's a two way street; if a game developer wants to make a "cinematic experience" they're in the wrong fucking business.

No hardware can run all software at 60fps. It's a physical impossibility. Developers have to make tradeoffs to get frames per second, and sometimes those tradeoffs aren't worth the extra frames, so they're sacrificed.

You're absolutely right. The only problem with that argument is Evil Within looks like shit. Not only that, but the ONLY OTHER games running id Tech 5 run at sixty fucking frames a second, ON CONSOLES.

I had zero issues with the BF4 launch.

But maybe that's because I refuse to use Origin and thus never tried to play it. Still, no issues.

The only logical conclusion is that Phantom Pain will be coming to PC, which is... rather shocking.

The design of the game seems to lean towards hardcore, where they tried to make you feel as hopeless as possible.

And then you get the flamethrower?

I watched somebody play for the first hour and it looked bad. Slow as hell (mission: get dressed), bunch of pointless quicktime events (seriously? mashing X repeatedly three times in a row to pull a lever?), and the thing I'm most sick of in gaming, a bunch of fucking writing all over every wall. As if people have nothing better to do in a crisis than spraypaint cryptic messages left and right.

Gametrailers says there is a chunk of the game during which there is no Alien, and the enemy is instead a bunch of androids. W. T. F.

because there have been utility guys spray-painting the street for weeks to show where the water mains and such are buried, as apparently Consolidated Edison is going to be replacing all the gas lines soon, so we may be living that soothing jackhammer life for the foreseeable future.

They've been doing just that to the major five-lane road near me for months now. I hope you get settled in for the long haul.

My guess would be:

1) Rocket
2) Fuel
3) Launch Facility
4) Cup
5) Coffee beans
6) Coffee machine
7)... duct tape?

How'd you forget water?
