I thought I had the hang of it for a bit there but NOPE. I think I am at the sniper section mentioned previously. Whatever it is I've been stuck on it for a while.

I used to be good at video games. Ravages of age I guess.

This game is so freaking hard. I can't even imagine playing on Normal, Easy is kicking the absolute crap out of me.

Thanks for the help guys - this has gotten easier as the game has progressed. I'm still getting clobbered, just less regularly.

I, too, am apparently horrendous at stealth.

Incidentally this game is pretty compelling, I just am terrible at it!
50  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Naughty Dog's The Last of Us on: November 15, 2013, 06:07:04 PM
Yeah I'm using that constantly. I am just not sure I understand the rules of engagement.

I switched to easy and made some progress right up until the museum and then died over and over. Taking a break and heading out for a drink! I've been killed so many times at least it isn't a scary jolt anymore!

I haven't even had to really fight a room full of infected things yet, I'm still trying to get out of the city/quarantine zone/whatever it is. I definitely went back and put it on Easy, to my great shame, but still ended up getting killed about a dozen times on this one sequence before sighing heavily, lamenting the ravages of age, and giving up for the evening.

I'm just not all grokking what I'm supposed to be doing here. I'm getting it is much more stealth game than combat game, but I can't seem to figure out where everything is - I'm getting spotted by guys I didn't even know were there. I have a feeling I'm going to end up consulting a lot of walkthroughs for this one...

And Mr. dyeager, I agree totally with what you say above. I don't sit around thinking about death all the time. I love living(even with my chronic health issues), and try to enjoy each moment as much as possible. I tell my son all the time how amazing it is how, out of all the minute possibilities over millions and millions of years, that we exist today.
It's just those rare moments when I DO start thinking about it all a bit too much that I find myself scared down into the core of my being. I don't share this with anyone around me(except on the Fan!) but it does happen.

You know - the fact that you have a son probably adds an element to it I don't have. I don't have kids and never will. But I would imagine for parents, there would be a fear of dying because you would worry about what happens to your kids afterward.

That may be different than what you're talking about but it is definitely an element that makes sense to me.

And yeah, the Fan is pretty cool.

If anybody has some tips for survival on this, let me know. I am getting absolutely clobbered and I JUST met Elli. I'm just getting killed constantly.

I managed to get killed in the opening sequence of the game so I'm assuming that doesn't bode particularly well...
54  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Religion on: November 15, 2013, 10:12:15 AM
This thread is such a bummer. :(

I dunno, talking about death isn't really a bummer to me because again, I just don't worry about it. Whatever you believe - random circumstance, divine intervention, whatever -  it is pretty freaking spectacular that we are alive, existing, posting messages about it at all. That's worth celebrating to me. The notion that we are so precious and rare in either the scope of the universe or being chosen by some kind of deity - again, whatever works for you - means that being alive should be so unbelievably valued and should reinforce the notion that as precious as it is for ourselves it is equally as precious for those we share it with. That alone is motivation to do good and live well.
55  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Religion on: November 15, 2013, 10:00:51 AM
You can't compare not existing before your life to not existing after it.

I guess that's where we will simply have to disagree. :-)

EDIT: I'm not trying to belittle anyone's fear of death or anything, it is just not something that has really ever scared me. As I mentioned earlier, I am much more afraid of being kept alive while suffering than dying. It doesn't mean I don't love living, of course I do. It's freaking great.
56  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Religion on: November 14, 2013, 09:57:46 PM
Atheist here. Death doesn't scare me. Suffering does.

I was dead for a long long time before I was ever alive and it didn't bother me then, so it seems unlikely it will bother me when it happens again.

We are great, but our readers and forum folks are even better.
58  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So does anyone think the Vita will get better? on: October 13, 2013, 03:50:20 PM
I will admit I barely use my Vita.

Dat P4G though...

I got DCed last night and then got some error number when I tried to log back in. Seems okay this morning though.

I don't think you're picking on me at all, this is valuable information I'm getting. The reason I feel I can bring this stuff up is because this forum is honestly full of intelligent people who WON'T condescend to me and won't just tell me that it's not their job to educate me, so I can get some decent viewpoints out of this discussion. It really irritating that modern activism of noninvolvement which takes a stance of not having viable discussion and just people talking over each other, it's setting us down a bad path.

Though I agree this is best done over a drink. Very rare chances for that though. :P

Oh good. I'm glad to hear that!

Here's a really cool thing about assymmetric insight, btw - longish read but there is this insane experiment in there where two boy's camps turned into Lord of the Flies in real life, crazy stuff: http://youarenotsosmart.com/2011/08/21/the-illusion-of-asymmetric-insight/

Overarching point here is that really having an instructive debate is HARD for us because our brains are not wired for it, so it is easy for things to end up like this, especially on forums where you're not getting the other interactions that come with seeing a person's reaction, etc.

Also I have found that a frosty beverage tends to take the edge off of even the most potent debates. :D
