Always been a great fan of NWN but never played Hordes of the Underdark. As the Drizzt novels fan that I am today, I can't wait to give that expansion a shot! Doesn't that expansion bring you to Menzoberranzan?

hordes of the underdark was one of the best releases of old bioware in my opinion. it's really good; it should have been the main campaign. excellent soundtrack by jeremy soule too, some of his best work of that decade.

For the wonderful Sharon Tate, her unborn baby, her friends, and all other victims: rest in piss, Manson. Face down.

i always got the vibe from manson (especially that stupid "i'm no one" interview with all the silly faces) that i got from the edgy loser kids in high school trying super hard to freak other people out to leverage some kind of power over them, any goddamn kind of tenuous emotional power to feel less pathetic. he really was just a worthless sack of piss, not in the least frightening, just a net negative on the human race.

i admittedly get this vibe a lot when they put spree killers in front of cameras; that little douche who dyed his hair and shot up a movie theater gives it to me too: the aura of a bullied high school pussy who finally got a gun in his hand.

just rambling, i guess. i just always hated the bullshit mystique the media crafts around these fucking clowns.

Hmm, I remember "The Thing" being okay, but the greatest horror film ever? Then again, I've never really been a horror movie person. That said, I think I'd have to give "The Shining" my GOAT tag. I'll set the DVR to catch "The Thing" next time it is on, and get a refresher...

john carpenter's greatest contribution to comedy horror was Ghosts of Mars; i highly recommend it. just not for money. bring beer.

coincidentally, i just got into the history of world war 1, a period of time i've never really been interested in. i picked up a copy of The Guns of August for some reason last month and, though it was a terrible book (i've never read a "history" that reduced historical figures to such utter, buffoonish caricatures in my life) it was a spring board into the wider historiography of the war.

to invoke christopher clark here, it was always easy to imagine the run-up to war as some edwardian costume drama. the effete rituals and gaudy uniforms, the ornamentalism of a world still largely organized around hereditary monarchy had a distancing effect. the presumption asserts itself that if the actors hats had gaudy green ostrich feathers on them, then their thoughts and motivations probably did too, so to speak.

it's gotten me pretty excited for that german show netflix is bringing to market next month, Babylon Berlin, a noir-ish crime drama set during the Weimar Republic.

i thought watch dogs was a great time. i enjoyed the campaign quite a bit, there was good mission variety and i found the story engaging. it's been a hit with the friends of mine who've played it also.

The game that runs like crap on any PC, no matter how beefy! I got it on Steam sale last year and my PC won't even run it at a decent fps, even though it way exceeds the recommended specs.

that's unusual. i didn't know anyone with problems running it; i myself ran it on high settings on my i7-860 with a gtx 770 4gb, hardly cutting edge.

Leah was pretty bad but I always loathed Maghda in that game. A silly butterfly lady who exists only to annoy me to death with hamfisted plot exposition and Saturday morning cartoon laughter? What a compelling villain MWUA HA HA HA HA.

Blizzard's writers were never exactly stellar but things really took a nosedive in that game.

god help me, i don't know why, but i loved the lore and storyline of diablo 3 and reaper of souls, slapdash and lackadaisical as it is. there's so much revision, so many retcons, it's just college-level writing but fuck if i didn't buy the lore books and everything.

there's nothing that disgusts me more than being tethered, nay, chained, to my phone via my 300 dollar earbuds. i'm always grateful to phone companies for attempting to release me from this bondage.

i'm going to be very curious to see how this has aged. i haven't played the original since it released back in 99. i remember thinking even then how cheesy it was.. not often in the best ways.

i also always thought cutter slade was black..? huh.

it didn't feel short to me so much as it felt like it simply stopped, plot threads not just left dangling, but slashed and left blowing in the wind. and by some accounts, we'll never get a conclusion.

reddit has been absolutely losing its mind for a day or two over manveer heir giving an interview slagging off bioware and EA for their microtransaction bullshit and so on.

i do find it hilarious. this was the guy who's race-baiting tweeting bullshit was being held up as the example of "SJW culture" destroying bioware like 6 months ago on reddit, day in and day out, now being feted. i presume he's only even doing this because he torpedoed his videogames career already with his retarded public conduct.

Excellent game. Like a more combat focused
action FTL with craftable mods and weapons with resource gathering and enemy looting. Full hotas support and plays great with gamepads and mouse and keyboard also.

What joystick/gamepad/HoTaS setup do you use? A lot of the reviews indicate the joystick/HoTaS support is less than stellar. I've been thinking about buying this game for awhile now, but I probably don't need another rogue-like rage-inducer. Especially if my Wingman ends up being wonky.


have you checked out House of the Dying Sun? its a bit more of a traditional type of sim with some mild fleet command elements.

i thought everspace was an ok time but the "roguelike" and "crafting" elements i just have to accept are something i'm allergic to. i'd wait for 50% off personally. the roguelike elements are very lightweight though, there's no real permadeath or negative repercussions for dying.

it's all part of steam's cosmic background though, "sincere" intent or no; i find a lot of times when i click someone's name in a discussion thread their profiles will be filled with nazi iconography, nazi or pro-trump themed groups, "FILL STEAM WITH WINDMILLS" swastika comments, etc. it's just everywhere, it's normalized, and "LOL ITS JUST A PRANK!!" doesn't hold water. it's a really fucking bad idea to mix satire with sincerely held beliefs. the character is supposed to represent that divide.

the ones i find truly baffling are the russians with SS or Wolfsangel symbols with their geneology listed as their profile description.

like, guys, did they not teach you about the great patriotic war in school? it doesn't matter if you're 23% norwegian, you're still a slavic subhuman in the eyes of real nazis you fucking morons.

words words words

it sounds like what's at issue here is that you want to just say whatever pops into your head, without consequence; and other people should just "get over it".

the fact that people say "wow, what as asshole" when you call people faggot in a video game is, to you, a sea change of "PC culture"?

here's what's really going on. you're free to say whatever you want. those people you're inflicting your drivel on are also free to interpret it however they want, and tell you you're being a fuckhead. that's all. demanding they "just get it", or "get over it" and just stay quiet rather than give you a response you don't like is the attitude of a literal child.

you judge yourself by your intentions (i'm just joking! what's the big deal!), other people judge you by your actions (they see and hear someone calling strangers a faggot on the internet and are not obligated to calibrate their response after a consultation with you on your 'jokey' intent).

here's the other side of the coin: when the gaming press and others declared gamer gate was a bunch of racist misogynists, and that "gamers" were dead, the shrill caterwauling from "real gamers" was deafening. what's the big deal? "gamer" is just a word, right? maybe gamergate should just Get Over It™.
