The "whatever's on your mind" thread

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 160.4K 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.

    Did you cheat?

  • no, he's just got an ego complex

  • Intended to spend the night working on sprites. Ended up spending the night hacking up one of the Bioshock Infinite alternate covers in Photoshop. Not only do the things print off too big for the case at 100% scaling, but if you scale them down properly lengthwise, they're still too tall for the case, so I had to remove the Irrational and 2K logos and use the wallpaper version to cover the holes so I could crop the thing shorter.

    Not bad, considering that the colors were a bit different on the wallpaper version and I'm total crap at Photoshop.

    Edit: Printed it, put it in the case, thought it looked off. Compared it to the original and scaled versions I printed from the PDF with no editing. Somewhere, I lost a ton of detail. The Photoshopped copy doesn't look nearly as clean.

    Edit 2: Glad I saved it after I removed the logos and before I did any cropping or resizing. I was able to open the saved one, crop it to the same ratio, and print it to the size I wanted without resizing the image. It came out much cleaner. Now it's just too bad that the only Legal sized paper I was able to get wasn't glossy at all.

  • Whoah! I got paid more than expected from work. 0_o

    How did it go?
    @divisionten said: Got plans in place for a university scouting trip down in London. Travel by coach, stay with my brother and check out three universities over five days. Also time to have a good talk with my brother about if we can even afford to live together in a decent sized place.
    We're taking a trip up to Nottingham next week for one of their campus tour days, because I've never actually seen the accomodation I'm renting or much of the city.

  • So, question. Should I buy Bioshock Infinite despite having never played the first Bioshock and also despite not having any time to play this one?

    It's not the best time to buy it. It's full price everywhere, and if you wanted to pay that price for it you should have done so when the pre-order bonuses were really good(on Amazon, there was a $30 credit and a free copy of the new X-Com, and other places offered the first two Bioshock games with a pre-order free). As it is right now, your best option if you did opt to buy it would be to look at the secondhand market where there are copies of Infinite in the $25-35 range because codes for it came with 7000-series AMD graphics cards.

    Oh, also, it's definitely linked to Bioshock 1 in a meaningful way, though mostly near the end I think?
