Xen was the shitty part of Half-Life that always felt stapled on at the end to me.

If you sit on a bucket to take a shit instead of getting up from the PC because you're playing a game, you have a gaming disorder.

An excerpt from a conversation with an old girlfriend, complaining about the guy she dated after me:

"I hate Everquest."
"Why?"
"It's sucking up too much of [insert idiot's name, can't remember it] life."
"How bad is it?"
"He's not giving me enough attention. Last weekend he was playing the game, and ignoring me. So I stripped naked, sat on his lap facing him, and started chewing on his neck. He kept trying to look past me, ended up asking me to stop so he could play his game."


An early twenties man repeatedly turning down sex for a video game? Sounds like an addiction to me.

Maybe she's just not desirable. But we're not allowed to call people fat and ugly anymore...

Destruction Derby 2 was the best racing game on PC for a long time. As long as this shit isn't built on BeamNG and its horribly busted damage model and physics engine, this game should fill a niche that has been devoid of content for a long time. Too many racing games favor arcade physics and next-to-no damage modeling because they use licensed cars or whatever and aren't allowed do put scratches on them. That's the most fun part of racing games--seeing how fucked up your car is by the end and if you actually make it that far. Might check this out.

If this is an online, survival type game...then I'll pass on it.

But...GIVE ME A REMASTERED INTERSTATE 76!!!!!

Hell, give me an Interstate 77 as a sequel with a short introductory cutscene to remind me of the events of I76.

I have the original I76 on GOG but, sadly, it runs very poorly on modern hardware.

There already was an I77 as far as I'm concerned. It was the Nitro Pack/Arsenal.

Although, a complete remake using GTA5 I could see being fucking amazing. You could get out of the car (even though you're never supposed to) in I82, and it was clunky and shitty, but it's good in GTA5 and actually useful. Can you imagine being able to add turrets and minelayers in the auto shops?

The Constitution, meh, who needs it.

Mandating displays of patriotism are what they do in places like North Korea.
#BoycottNFL


Interestingly enough, the people demanding that others salute the flag against their wills are also the ones who lean towards a fascist dictatorship as their preferred governance, yet they are the ones who think they are the true patriots and "real 'Muricans". They couldn't be farther from the truth.

I loved Planetside, played it 1,000's of hours.

I tried to play Planetside 2 on 3 different occasions, never lasting more than 10.

I played the hell out of Planetside 2. Could never get into Planetside 1.

Gave up on Lost in Space after surviving 4 episodes of that crap. First of all, it's "Lost On Planet", or perhaps LOST "in space", if ya know what I mean. Except LOST had... actors, at least.

Netflix's "The Rain" has been panned, apparently, and it is a thoroughly mediocre show, however it actually has a plot that seems to move forward, which makes it more watchable than "Lost In Space".

The planet dies. So, yeah, they're in space.

Did you watch all of season 1? What didn't you like about it?

I think the most surprising aspect of this story is that cyber cafes still exist and people actually use them. XD

Cutter's post is spot on.

But I'll add that the books are very much about the neutrality question as well. The Witchers want to be neutral but Geralt finds that he can't, because he has connections to non-witchers in the world and he doesn't want to lose those. That being said, he still finds ways to play both sides when necessary or when it suits him.
I think the games did an excellent job of capturing the themes from the books, and I don't think that would be as compelling without Geralt as the main character. It's a love and friendship story really, those are his motivations in everything he does... the "witchers only care about money" thing is the stereotype he's overcoming and internally battling with.

Except according to the books, Geralt is different from other Witchers, which makes him interesting. He wasn't just turned into a mindless killer with no empathy or moral compass. Something went "wrong" in the trials that he faced and he was not stripped of all of his human emotions. The only reason he has these struggles you describe is because of that aspect of his personality. If they had done the games about any other Witcher than him, it wouldn't have been the series that it is.
