  1. I'd have to go with a Mon Cal, or really any large ship. There's got to be a gym with a swimming pool in there somewhere for all those people. (I'm from Texas and it's hot outside right now)
  2. I picked up Life Is Strange because you mentioned it here and it really is great as well. Finished episode one today. Adventure games are definitely coming back in style.
  3. I'm a fan of the Borderlands games, and while I haven't gone all-out on any of them, 100%ing everything, I have enjoyed the aesthetic and the "ooh, piece of candy" feel to getting new guns and upgrades. And playing MP with my friends was a real plus. I'm also a huge fan of the old LA adventure games-- Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango-- even Loom and The Dig. I love storytelling to a fault. Also I love Telltale. Tales from the Borderlands is now on its third episode out of five. I recently bought it because of the Steam summer sale, but you can still get it there for a little more. Tales from the Borderlands is absolutely great. The gameplay is very different from its originating series (as you might expect for an adventure/story game based off a shooter), but the story-- and more importantly the characterizations- are spot on. There were many parts where I laughed out loud due to the ridiculous situations you came across and the subversion of series tropes that happened when someone actually decided to say in words, "that doesn't make any sense at all." And it is hilarious. Recommended.
  4. Exactly. I don't visit much because I'm busy, but I do pay attention. It's probably just the fact that the average age of the place is aging (and LA being dead).
  5. Real easy: my name is that of a villain from the Descent franchise. Since he's not really a role model or even an antihero no one has ever wanted the username before me, which is great. Bonus points for being something relatively realistic sounding.
  6. Give this a watch if you're a fan: Crazy how many locations are almost exactly like they are in the game. And be sure to check the rest of CorridorDigital's channel, because it's amazing.
  7. I've played quite a bit of it on PC since getting it a couple of weeks ago. It's a really good game, definitely on the must-buy list for anyone who likes sandbox games as well as anyone who enjoys a good single player experience. Heists are super fun. I tend to listen to the Mirror Park radio in the game a lot. I recently discovered a google playlist for the same station and have been listening to it in my car. Makes me want to drive fast.
  8. Hey ckc, May 02 represent Sadly, the glowy usernames went away with the extensions of vbulletin when it was upgraded a while back.
  9. Thanks! A bit belated, true, but I'm hard to get hold of these days. :)

  10. I made a mango habenero salsa recently, with some apples in there for good measure. So tasty. Habenero is great for heating up sweet things. (Yes, I'm also a Texan)
  11. Happy Birthday and all that crap!

  12. You posted some really horrible PR fluffle about social media and you still won't reply to me? Terrible. FOR SHAME SIR

  13. Surely that would be giving it a context just as I asked for? And in this specific case, as long as they were on "public" property at the time, I don't really have a problem with them protesting whatever they like. I really don't trust anyone in charge to determine what is and what is not should be classified as free speech in a public space. And it is not that: I don't trust certain individuals. I simply don't trust the institution itself to always promote freedom in that space-- hence I would deny them the ability to regulate it.
  14. You will probably need to define the context of the question; freedom does not exist in a vacuum apart from human beings. What things are relevant? Physical law? Coercion? A determinist would say that physical laws deny freedom, while most people would say that being told "their family will be killed if they don't do X" would make a person less free (implying that there's a gradient in there somewhere), but someone who believes in libertarian free will would deny that any outside force can limit agency. It's not too clear what is being asked if it's left so wide open. Kind of like asking "what is a game?" when the things people say are games are of such variety - chess, solitaire, hide and seek, "the game", "playing chicken", etc that there is no necessary common denominator to identify them.
