  1. The Big VR Thread

    I'm interested in some of these events, especially the theatre one. There is one tonight I might go to.
  2. Far Cry 5

    I've been watching a spy-show lately so I'm imagining a, b, and c, all getting urgent messages about trouble at home or mandatory detours around the time these pictures of you were taken. ---- Henke and I played some co-op for the first time. It's pretty awkward when the story missions pop up. I'm not very responsive to melodramatic cut-scenes when I'm aware that both of us have to suffer through them. Henke is very gracious though. I also die a lot more than Henke does. I like to use the sniper rifle but I miss 4 out of 5 times, and my incendiary shotgun keeps getting me killed because they run into me after I set them ablaze.
  3. There isn't much puzzle solving at all except suspecting a particular person and following them. You are basically a ghost watching it all play out. Fortunately the characters are fairly interesting.

    Sweet. I love contests like these, there usually isn't much competition so it is typically worthwhile. You are lucky that some 12 year-old in a suit and sunglasses didn't show up. I myself won a PSP by dressing up like Kratos having never played a God-of-War game.
  5. It's got some huge flaws as a murder-mystery, but I've never been to a theatre performance that takes place throughout a house and I love the format.
  6. Far Cry 5

    I've been wanting to try out Arcade and multiplayer, but I'm afraid that I will stop playing the campaign if I do. I'm having a lot of fun fumbling my way through slowly. I don't enjoy the main-story missions much at all though. I'm working my way through the south-west bunker after killing Joseph Seed and I should just walk back into the woods for a while and come back, but it has a puzzleness to it that I'm fascinated by. My main problem is that I keep on wanting to do this stealthily and I don't know how to deal with the heavies.
  7. The Big VR Thread

    Sprint Vector is having a free weekend so I gave it a shot. I can see the appeal, the ski-pole movement is satisfying. But it totally makes me sick.
  8. Far Cry 5

    This game is a story-engine, but the characteristics of the stories seem to be the most interesting thing for me to analyze. Mostly the sequences of events that entertain me are not relatable enough that the person I communicate them to is entertained, but they will typically understand what was entertaining about it. There are two main references which seem to anchor meaning in these stories: my experiences with rural America, and the goofiness of computer games. I'm not cynical about this at all, I love the combo.
  9. Is It Wrong To Eat Meat?

    This article was educational for me. It seems that there is debate among muslims about whether or not halal-certification is bending too much in order to allow for industrial meat-production. But I guess this means that the living-conditions (tayyib) is not currently being enforced. This site appears to be speaking of the schism.
  10. Is It Wrong To Eat Meat?

    To be honest, it was just some Youtube video that seemed like a person with progressive-politics trying to combat a particular strain of islamophobia. Not the best source of information. I'll look into it more.
  11. bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies

    It's interesting that you value it in U.S. dollars rather than in BTC. A similar argument would be that U.S. dollars are the future because the price is currently 0.0001 BTC
  12. Is It Wrong To Eat Meat?

    Lately I've been getting into nice cheeses all the while knowing full well that dairy in America is a hellscape for the animals. I'd love it if science delivered some way to make nice cheeses without animals suffering. I also recently found out that part of halal is providing good lives for the animals and what islam considers compassionate slaughter. It's made me consider getting it when I do eat meat.
  13. Is It Wrong To Eat Meat?

    Corn-subsidies for animal-feed in the U.S. is something that bothers me because it makes meat cheaper. We are all losing our antibiotics and compassion.
  14. Far Cry 5

    I've been enjoying soundtrack (in-game) myself.
  15. Is It Wrong To Eat Meat?

    In my experience reducing meat consumption is not significantly more expensive. Were you buying processed foods or cooking it yourself?
