Just been playing Hotel Dusk whenever I get the chance.  I'm somewhere in Chapter 2.

We have two distinct definitions for spam here:

1. Making a topic that exists only to advertise something.
2. Making a post that has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand.

I personally find this to be the most annoying thing done on the internet. Hope and pray I'm not the one who catches you if you do this.

I'm sure your magazine is wonderful and everything, but according to our forum rules, a topic that exists only to advertise something is spam, and thus I will have to lock this topic.  

There is a "board information and rules" thread prominently highlighted on the forum index, where I took that quote from.

I'm "Neal Nerdypants."  This was back in December at a Rutgers Musicians' Guild show.  

OMG Orange Pants!!!!!!!

i was just floored by the revalation that Dincrest is Dezo. ZOMG!

I still found it hysterical that even though I was clear about that whole thing (my sig and title even said "formerly Blademaster Dezo") people were still shellshocked.  I even mention "Blademaster Dezo" on my staff profile.  

Losfer and others still call me Dezo, which is fine.  

And yes Angelo, I too remember Keith's Macross sigs and the "sig test" posts.  I forgot what sigs I used to use.

I only got to play about 45 minutes or so last night and so far the game is terrific.  I like that there's a greater emphasis on saying the right things to people to get information over twiddly, illogical puzzles.  

The pencil drawings of characters look so much better in motion than in still shots.

Ehh, fuck it.  I'll get in on the action early too.  This was definitely the most memorable and celebrated Dezo avatar.  It's really too bad Thousand Arms went to complete shit on disk 2, because Meis was awesome.  Other RPG protagonists would claim to be ladies' men, but Meis backed up the talk and not only dated party members, but also had girlfriends in multiple towns.  

I'm even using my first ever member title: Mind Healer.  

Ahh the Blademaster Dezo days.

...and all this just because of a video some woman made singing a song about her Mac.  (and it doesn't help that it's a parody of a really crappy song.)  At least Weird Al's "You're Pitiful" parody is kinda funny.  

I shudder to think where this thread would go if the lady had done as that one commenter said and did a song about her favorite vibrator so it wouldn't get jealous.

Thanks kindly, Ashy-poo.

Well, I got my copy last night, but haven't had time to play it yet.  I'll post initial impressions when I do.

I too have had a pretty inconsistent run of avatars.  These days I mostly use my staff avatar and I keep this Tifa one because it's my favorite picture of her.  I'm not even sure where I found this Tifa av, but it's fantastic.

...Oh wait!  If someone wouldn't mind resizing this puppy for me, THIS would be my "old school" avatar.  It's the one that people most remember of me (back in ye olde Blademaster Dezo days.)

Heh, that's weird because my old band Sullen Door is thinking about getting back together for a show this semester.  Whoa, 2007 *is* reunion year.

I still haven't played Planetscape: Torment and that's one game that's almost constantly recommended to me.

Yeah, my review is pretty much sounding like a broken record.

Even among the realm of US PC RPGs, there's a world of difference.  Neverwinter Nights is nothing like Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines which is nothing like Elder Scrolls.  

I like that many PC RPGs allow you to manipulate situations your way (i.e. if a door is locked I don't have to look for the key; I can blast it with a magic spell or something.)  However, I'm not fond of the constant clicky-clicky-clicky combat in many genre examples.  I do not find that fun.  

However, I loved games like Deus Ex and especially System Shock 2 which had more of an FPS element.  Combat and everything in those games is really fun.  I'm definitely excited about Hellgate London (though I kinda doubt my computer will be able to run it.)  Sidenote:  Even the introductory level in the System Shock 2 demo (after the training) scared the shit out of me.  

A few PC RPGs have attempted to be more like their console brethren like Septerra Core and Anachronox.  I've never played Anachronox but I've played Septerra Core.  I really wanted to love Septerra Core, but I ultimately found it boring.

My preorder should be in this afternoon.  However, I have work then class till 7:30 so I'll have to get it before the store closes.

Looks like I'll be getting it tomorrow night after class.  I wanted to go to the store tonight and get it, but I got locked out of my apartment and by the time housing came to let me back in, the store was closed.
