  1. Superhot VR also just came out for Vive. I have a considerable VR backlog now
  2. I have become a huge fan of more exotic fruits. A few years ago I got a ~30 lb jackfruit from a vietnamese grocery store. It was quite the experience to process it. http://shesimmers.com/2011/05/jackfruit-kha-nun-and-how-to-prepare-it.html Also check out mangosteen and durian.
  3. Hammocks. I got a camping hammock as a gift recently and have been getting a lot of use out of it. So much more comfortable than picnic blankets or lawn chairs. All you need is the hammock, two straps to hang it off of and two trees. Spent 7 hours in one on Saturday reading and just chilling by a lake. Most of them can comfortably fit two people as well.
  4. RE: sickness
  5. I don't know how complete it is by Skyblivion has a release version. The main reason i dont want to play it is oblivion has almost all the UI flaws of Morrowind and almost all the UI flaws of Skyrim.
  6. Skywind is doing some good work, I played the last public release they had and aside from all the NPCs being naked it was amazingly far along.
  7. I replayed it when the expansion for skyrim that returns you to Solstheim. Aside from the inherent jank of the UI, especially the journal. The biggest thing I miss from Morrowind is the amount of quests and the depth of the world building. The map was also just inherently weird which helped a ton. The flora and fauna looked like nothing from our world. I really loved the game. I with we could get a medium between no quest markers and skyrims pointing your way through the dungeon. Something that told you where to go in the overworld but then left you to explore once you got there would be great.
  8. This kind of environmental story telling and the event that will be happening later today are the best parts of elite
  9. Looks like we are getting a bloodlands DLC. A weirdly vocal part of the community is upset Bulgaria isn't in this one.
  10. My main issues with BE were: 1) It felt more like a mod or expansion for Civ5 than a full game. Including having all the issues Civ5 had. 2) Everything felt very samey, no matter which of the three options you chose your units all looked pretty bland. 3) Similarly the technology was pretty boring, it felt more like near future sci-fi rather than super technologically advanced stuff. 4) Winning almost always turned into a slog.
  11. I think probably my biggest problem with Stellaris is the inability for it to create interesting stories. The best part of Hearts of Iron or Crusader Kings is being able to tell a cool story. One of my earliest HOI4 games I was playing as Turkey and I proceeded to conquer Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia. Then I built up my industrial capacity and military. As soon as the Germans started being pushed back by the Soviets I declared war on Bulgaria, got invited to join the Allies and was able to secure parts of Greece, Bulgaria and Syria for my new Ottoman state. There is no way to tell a story about a game of Stellaris in a similarly relate-able way.
  12. That does get a bit tricky when Valve has an effective monopoly on online game distribution. Losing access to Steam means a game will be seen by far fewer people and result in much lower sales. Perhaps we should nationalize Steam Relatedly does GOG have anything like greenlight or a similar program to give indie games access to their platform?
  13. Might be that I was playing the game clandestinely at work, it was a slow day I swear, but I didn't really notice it. I also remember the CG graphics in the original being janky so perhaps my brain just glossed over it.
  14. Ditto, turns out i remember everything
