The "whatever's on your mind" thread

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 200.5K users

One of the things that's great about this forum is its randomness. Well, this is the epitome of it: a thread for whatever random thought happens to be passing through your mind.

For example, I've just been struck by the most random craving for Taco Bell nachos.

  • My older brother does not understand the concept of Kick starter (something I explained to him ages ago), and now is shouting about how I've been conned.

    Which is just stupid, because so far all I've had is success.

    No time to explain, though not great, did happen.
    As did Twilight Zone Pinball (and fuck him anyway. I like pinball. I might be shit at it, but its cool to me and a nice time waster)

    Shadow run Returns and Wasteland 2 look good in alpha already.

    Code hero had some trouble, but the fact there is stuff there, its promising, (plus I only put 10 dollars into it)

    Jane Jensen stuff has paid off so far.
    As did the music one I did.

    Double fine adventure seems to be going alright.

    And so is Carmageddon.

    Oh and Octodad 2 and The banner saga are going well too.

    The guys got no sense of patience and no faith.
    And somehow he's claiming to be smarter.
    (Um... No. Just no.)

    I just see it as a pre-order I forgot I made in the past.
    Plus these are the kind of games I'd love to play.
    And I don't have to justify that to anyone,

    (And as for Dream fall. That's THE adventure game I have waited for for years....)

    And this silly and pointless argument was all kicked off when I simply tried sharing with him how cool Shadow run Returns looks already in alpha.

  • Kill him. Place your hand over his nose and mouth while he sleeps and then rinse and repeat until dead. 30 seconds in a microwave if you're hungry.

    Please don't encourage me. I often fantasize about murdering the bastard.
    To be honest, a quick clean death is too good for the ignorant bastard.

    I'll just go about living my life how I want to.
    I'd rather be a mug than an asshole he is.
    (And lets be honest here. A lot of mugs DO outlast an asshole, and are much more pleasant to be around! XD)

    EDIT: I mean lets be honest here.

    A mug is practical. People like looking after them. People get sad if they break sometimes.

    All an asshole does is sit around, spewing shit.

    And thats why us decent folk cover them up, and give them a little area to do their business out of harms way.

    EDIT 2: Plus on the whole kickstarter thing: There would be NO game at all without the initial money investment.
    And unfortunately, (I know from experience), thing don't just get made overnight. They aren't just there. You can't expect immediate results. And if you do, then really you should expect shit, because thats what you deserve.

    Again, from business its the ol' tradeoff:

    Money vs Time vs Quality

    One has to be sacrificed to benefit the others.

    Fast + Quality = expensive
    Fast + Cheap = Low Quality
    Quality + Cheap = Slow.

    (I mean 15 people team vs 1000+ big budget AAA team. One can easily make the next year target, but that doesn't mean the AAA team is going to make the better game. Things WILL get cut. Sometimes important things. Thats why Marketing is key for those studios. To get in the impulse buyers, before people realise how shit the game actually is.
    So yeah. Bro. I'd say YOU are getting conned. £40 spend on Call of Duty and FIFA? What? The same game almost every year, with minimal changes. No originality. And shoddy, quickly scrapped together code that makes them bug out constantly because they can't handle a little internet interference. Oh it makes your simple primitive mind so mad when you get killed or lose a goal. It is actually pathetic to watch you scream at people in rage because you aren't good enough to win. Lobbing random projectiles at the people around you and swearing profusely at the other player to try to intimidate them. Its just pathetic. PA-THE-TIC. And I feel sorry for you, I really do.)

    Sorry about that. I really shouldn't waste my breath ranting about my idiotic and abusive older brother. He is in the end of the day: A bonifide Asshole of the tenth degree, and no matter how nice I am to him ,no matter how I try. He will Never change. Ever... -_-

    He's conning you into leaving him alive. "You're being conned!" He shouts it at you because he knows you'll never realize it, and laughing at you later.

    Mwahahahaha.

    Oh, and here's one of the best questions I found while googling:
    Is it true that the ocean water is salty because of whale sperm?

    The answer is simple: No. Whales don't wank.
    The water may be salty because of whale piss, though.

    Fun facts: 'whale sperm' (spermaceti) is a term used for a liquid or semi-liquid oily substance found in the head cavities of sperm whales. This substance was traditionally used as an ingredient in ointments and cosmetics.
    It was also called 'cetaceum' and an important ingredient in the officinal German version of cold cream before being substituted by an artificial wax called cetyl palmitate which is still named after the whale.
    The German word for cetaceum - 'Walrat' - was also the given name of a pharmacist I once knew, indicating two things:
    1. He must have originated from a family of pharmacists.
    2. His parents must have been cruel effectively naming their son 'Whale Sperm' ...

    Meh. He'll end up destroying himself eventually. It will only be a matter of time.
    (I have better things to do.)

    And on that day I will be a little sad.
    (But secretly laughing. Stupid Bastard! XD)

    Nope, this has now become Strangers on a Train. I'm Bruno.

    Alright I'll bite. Who do you want me to murder then...?

  • @RetroVortex said: Alright I'll bite. Who do you want me to murder then...?

    My greatest nemesis. Flat Stanley is his name. Shudder.

  • @Secret Fawful said: My greatest nemesis. Flat Stanley is his name. Shudder.

    So let me get this straight....
    Your nemesis is a flat child?

    And I thought I had it bad...
