How is it Liz's fault and where is your proof? Inquiring minds want to know!

She started posting on Facebook about her game play. Gorbacz mentioned LWS mods...

I am back... and skipping 200 posts and just reading the last 50.

Had a double shift on Halloween so no need to buy candy.

I'd say that double shift warrants getting candy. Or at least chocolate!

My wishlist for Andromeda is:

1: Gunplay like ME3
2: Skill Tree like ME1
3: Characters and Loyalty Missions (which I believe has been confirmed) like ME2

I'd like to see Fallout Newer Vegas with even more slow motion explosions, even more mini nukes, and robot hookers.

In fact, forget the slow motion explosions and mini nukes.

New Vegas did have at least one robot hooker.

It doesn't matter, I'd rather spend it on mini nukes.

Yeah, the slightly less psychotic brother-sister duo running the hotel across from the very psychotic brother-sister duo outside the strip sends you on a quest for one.

I thought Piracy 101 was that riddling ships with cannonfire in a big, dramatic battle just wrecks all your loot.

There isn't a lot of branching in 2, actually. The characters are the real highlight. However, a LOT of your decisions in 2 affect things in 3, as well as your decisions in 1.

People's fickle, short-term-attention-span nature always entertains/depresses me.

Last year, we got 2" of rain in October, everyone declared the drought "finally over!!", and there was much celebration...
...until it hardly rained at all for the rest of the winter.

This year, we got 4.5" of rain in October. Everyone's declaring the drought "finally over!!", and there is much celebration...

So, here's a "random general question from a grumpy old man" kind of thing: Does anyone else find the trend towards "video reporting" irritating?

I know it's cheaper and faster, but if I want to learn about a topic, I'd like to read a well-written article by someone who might once have driven past a journalism school, not watch a video by some plastic-haired bubblehead who could survive for two weeks after having their heads cut off...

I thought I was safe reading BBC and NPR news reports.

Even they are falling prey to the "quick fix" of video reporting.

*SIGH*.

If it's a video, I just ain't gonna watch it.

Maybe you just need to learn how to spell only using 140 characters (or "letters" as we called them in my day).

For point 2, i.e. branching for skill trees. Skill Trees in ME1 feel bland.

It means...

Forums
are
Way
too
Long

The original FaWtL was a thread actually titled "Forums are Way too Long" by a poster named IsaacX who, well, felt that forums were way too long. He felt that it was important that all threads have a maximum of 10 posts and that older thread were destroyed or hidden.

So, in totally normal Paizo fashion, the thread he started was immediately inundated with banal comments in an exaggerated attempt to make that thread the longest. It worked. The first FaWtL got so big, it literally broke the forum code at the time. Then so did the second. And third. And so on. We're* now up to six, and it seems that the code fixing done by the then-resident postmonster finally can handle the enormous size of the FaWtLs.

Basically, it has a long and prestigious history of rambling about everything you can possibly imagine except sports, politics, and religion (all three of which are against the rules). And for some reason never adequately explained to me, the first poster at the top of a page is always naked until they clarify they put clothes on.

Hope that helps!

* I say "we" as if I was in that original group. I was not. But I'm here now, soooooooooo...

And that I've heard good reviews. :D (EDIT: for linkage)

It turns out my seasonal funk hit me today, a few weeks early, most likely due to a lack of faith in humanity and the upcoming [redacted]. So no news or [redacted] (or as it's commonly referred to in Europe "Futball") for the next six months.

If not longer.

Awesome!

I wanted to comment further: it's important to note that:

a) the Protomen, as a band, are designing their albums based in an extremely loose fashion off of the first six Mega Man games - I'm talking the old ones for the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System); this adaptation is, it must be emphasized, extremely loose - there seem to be characters who share names and broad outlines of vague similarity (i.e. a good doctor named Light opposing a villainous doctor named Wiley who share history together in which the latter (a former partner) usurped the work of the former for conquest, and the former generated robot men that set out to defeat the latter - but the specifics are wildly different;

b) Act II ("Father of Death") is actually a prequel to Act I ("The Protomen"), explaining how the set-up in the first act came to happen

c) they've been working on Act III for, like, nine years (though they've recently released two new songs from it; and technically it's only been seven years since Act II was released, soooo*...)

In any event, their work is awesome and I highly recommend it. You may have a while before Act III comes out (outside of the two incredible songs they've released from it!), however.

I am super excited to see the short film based on the latter half of their Act II.

(I vastly prefer Act II to Act I - I think both are excellent and love hearing them, but II's variety and emotional power... not to mention "cleaner" sound**... is just all the more awesome, in my mind and to my ears. But that's just me.)

* For those so inclined: they released Act I in 2005, after two years of active work; they released Act II in 2009, after four years of work; they have yet to release Act III as of 2016, after seven more years of work - hypothetically after one more year, they'd be able to keep their "double the time between making albums" shtick intact.

** I think that's the word? I don't know - ask David Mallon. That said, I recognize the rather cool "benefit" as it were to the greater oral distortions of the first album in telling the story and setting the scene. So far, Act III has echoed those distortions, but with a "cleanliness" (or maybe "clarity" or whatever - again, I don't know, ask David Mallon) lacking in the first, acting as a kind of hybrid between the two albums.

EDIT: adding a Wikipedia link.

Me time was (quite unexpectedly) super hilarious tonight.

Just look through my favorite'd by others, and you'll see. make sure you look tonight though, i'm sure it'll only be a memory when the shop opens up tomorrow.

Which is why i hardly even brought my A game. :-)

Honestly, that was exactly what I needed to break out of my funk.
