APROPOS TO COMMENT IN OTHER THREAD THIS IS PRETTY MUCH MY IDEAL HOA.

I want an HOA that's nothing but a bunch of buff, shirtless dudes walking around every so often and then they come up to your door, knock on it, and you open the door and they're like "Hello, we're the HOA," and then they wink and smile and walk off in silence to the next house.

FFX was like my favorite Square battle system ever and then they never used it again.

Although this is the unpopular opinions thread so I guess I should be saying that I'm glad they never used it again???

Oh, tip for Middens from what I remember.

1. I think you can glitch the buses out so be careful with those.

2. Fighting everything probably isn't the right idea.

Wakka always struck me as the kind of guy that'd dress up in revealing outfits. Usually at the /least/ opportune moment.

Like if there's ever a guy that'd show up at a funeral wearing nothing but a thong with a light-up Christmas tree on it, it'd be Wakka.

I don't know what to do with myself any more. I hate this new house so much it's making me crazy, as both a symptom and a result I don't want to really play any games or anything so I'm bored as fuck all, I don't have any friends to make excuses to get out of here (I also don't drive, so getting out of here on my own is difficult) and I'm just constantly wishing I could blink and go back to a better time and place.

Do what I do and take long walks after dark in places where it's nooot entirely safe to do so?

My problem with VNs is they're more "novels" than "games" and if I didn't want to be alliterate why would I eve be playing videogames, gosh!

Speaking of battle systems, why not get rid of them entirely and have a mechanic where you comfort and communicate with the bad guys enough so that you can calm them down and reason with them instead??????? that's not even ironic I mean you could turn this into a real goddamn mechanic in a lot of things, what if we had civ-style 4xes with proper dialogue trees and the best ending was getting everyone to ally with each other without any nation getting wiped out???

I MEAN I GUESS IT'S AN UNPOPULAR OPINION THAT I THINK A LOT OF GAMES (especially 4xen) TEND TO JUST BE POWER FANTASIES AND THAT'S KIND OF BORING AS HELL AT THIS POINT

and that's at least part of why I think Master of Orion 1's a lot smarter than 2 -- a conquest victory in MoO1, for all intents and purposes, is a Bad Ending.

Also I think Minecraft's sort of pointless and you're better of spending your time actually making something instead of playing a game about making something and it'd be damn cool if the /modern kids/ playing it would use it as a source of inspiration and actually go out and make something, but I don't think they really do. I've interacted with teenagers on Minecraft. They don't do shit. They mostly just hate black people.

Also Early Access is a horrible idea that's just dragging games further into the software-as-a-service tarpit.

--

... Although really, saying there are maybe 40 games I've managed to clock more than 10 hours on would be generous, I've never finished a game of a 4x, and I think getting maybe halfway through Alpha Centauri's the farthest I got on any of the genre. So my opinions are pretty baseless :S

I'd wager that all are preferable to growing up in the middle of nothing Indiana.

Middle of nowhere Ohio is pretty much middle of nowhere Indiana.

--edit--

Someone left one on the /front stoop/ and it was pretty full so I didn't want to throw it in the dumpster. I moved it to the sidewalk, away from anything flammable, so hopefully whoever left it there claims it or maintenance puts it in a proper receptacle but uh... bleff.

There's like two kinds of suburbs. The ones that are suburbs of a larger city, and the ones that are suburbs by population density but are otherwise isolated and their own thing.

The latter kind really, really sucks and I've no interest in moving back to one.

My (non-genetically related) grandparents keeping sending my checks for birthday/christmas and uh... I very rarely end up cashing them not out of ingratitude but because I'm /very financially sound/ and I'd just feel like a major jerk for taking their money.

Also it's kind of impossible to get to the bank anyway I mean they're open all of three hours during the week.

Actual non-ironic post (well okay I maintain that Garegga's a euroshmup) for a change but I liked Grandia 1 way more than Grandia 2 and imma let Grandia 1 finish but Beyonce was one of the best Game Arts games of all time.

My parents had this cat that started developing similar behaviors when I was born and from my understanding, they either had to put her down or they tried giving her some sort of mood-improvement pills that made her develop kidney issues and die from that?

I've always suspected that my dad harbors resentment towards me over this. It was mostly his cat.

... If that's true I don't really blame him for how he feels.

Man I wish I lived closer to a Whole Foods they would be better at sating my recent olive obsession than Kroger :(((((

Wait didn't... you make this thread like a long time ago.

Am I going insaner.

... I thought Starmangoose's name was like Sean WHO THE HELL IS SEAN THEN

I need to figure out how to get jobs toooooo. Staying with HPE probably isn't going to, uh... help me much. I wish I knew what I would find emotionally and mentally fulfilling as a career or just in general :I

... Also I want to go for a walk but my knees/ankles are dead from too much walking already + shoes not broken in yet can I get a reverse Fitbit or something????
