When I heard they were remastering Sam & Max, I assumed it was the original... Bah.
I won a Giant Sam and Max statue from Telltell Games... I'll have to re-unbox it and set it up

And there is a known issue with Battlenet not launching the game already. What happened to your testing team Blizzard?
Same as Ubi's team, on COVID at home vacation.

Spooky. I was going through old books in my garage and came across the book that came with my Half-Life 2 Collector's Edition. I decided to walk it down and leave it on the porch of my neighbors house because one of the cars out front has Black Mesa bumper sticker.
This happened this morning. I had no idea it was the anniversary. Until I just read this.

And what would we do without Blue too? :)

I suspect at least part of the problem is Nolan fails to realize how much easier it is to hear/understand what someone is saying when you know what they are saying. Many, many times I have backed up the DVR in order to listen to something again. Sometimes I can only figure it out by turning on the closed captioning. BUT, after I know what they have said, if I play it again, I can then hear it. Obviously, Nolan ALWAYS knows what is being said in his films. Hence he mistakenly believes any viewer can also... all that said -- with the exception for one or two moments, I don't remember this being much of an issue in "Interstellar".

His importance cannot be overstated. It's doubtful this site would still be here without him.

IDk...time played on Steam games in kinda bogus as you can just minimize the game for days and never touch it and it will still count as time played.
And time spent in offline mode doesn't count, either. I often go into offline mode and then forget to go back online because im only playing singleplayer games/modes because I have no friends and hate people.

I don't think I'd call it an achievement, but I would say taking typing in 1979 was one of the most useful decisions I ever made in my life.
Hah! My fave all time teacher was my English/homeroom teacher in Grade 8. He was a very smart man. Told me to take typing and study computers because it was the future. Pretty smart considering that was 1982'ish?
About 2 years later a good friend of mine's dad was learning to program. This was a highly successful man - he was a senior VP at Amex at the time. He said the same thing, computers are the future, so learn to type and code!

Learning typing in high school was one of my greatest achievements. I will rule this game.

The macros should be able to survive a reboot. That sounds like an issue they need to fix in firmware/software.
You're a bigger man than me going with blue keys must be because you're bLuE.
Those things are so dang clacky, not that I don't mind.
The IBM Model M has always made me tumescent.

I'm looking for new games to play, solo and with friends.
Currently we sometimes play quake champions, left 4 dead 2, star craft 2, golf with friends. In single player Ive been playing Dungeons3 almost exclusively.
Any suggestions along these lines?
Do any of these games come with map editors?

Cate Archer, I missed her! We need NOLF series back!
The classic logos are awesome.

I remember downloading the Wacky Wheels shareware from a local BBS, and realizing that the maps that looped behind the menu to entice a purchase were stored in the game's directory, and I could play them too by renaming them to the name of the actual demo circuit that was included. In the single digits age-wise getting most of a game for free was a huge win, so thanks for the fun Apogee! Now where's my ray-traced version of Tyrian?
