  1. New people: Read this, say hi.

    But then wouldn't he be Personsonson? edit: hello Sal!
  2. Which GTA to play?

    I loved Vice City. Like everyone says, the atmosphere and soundtrack is great. Although the main story is forgettable, individual missions make for great set pieces, often inspired by 80s action movies. It's possible it's aged now - I never thought the map was all that bad at the time, but maybe it doesn't hold up as well in retrospect.
  3. Google Plus aka Emerald Sea

    It's pretty slick. Agreed on the circles/groups thing. I make as much use as I can of Facebook's group settings (most people don't even know its there) but it's still pretty limited. I think the crunch period for Plus will be the point - that comes on all social networks - when businesses and events start using it. It's always a hideous square peg/round hole situation, although Facebook have finally arrived at something workable, although not terribly effective for promoters. It was a bit dicey for a bit though and it definitely hit Myspace awkwardly. Most often people start setting up multiple accounts to use as whatever they're promoting, generating a horrible amount of noise in the social arena.
  4. Movie/TV recommendations

    Oh we can't. In person she's probably lovely and utterly bewitching. But lets get to the point: we all just miss Megan Fox. amirite?
  5. Tabletop RPGs

    Yes, sorry I've been rubbish this past week. It seems like there's just the six, but that's OK. Erm I guess I'll message everybody that hasn't posted on the PbP forum. I'll also start posting the prologues while we wait.
  6. Movie/TV recommendations

    I find her fairly revolting too, going by all the photos and footage of her. Ever notice how her mouth is always open? She looks like a goddamn blow-up sex doll. Also she doesn't get to say even one word in the trailers - that's clearly not why she's there. It's all pretty offensive.
  7. General Video Game Deals Thread

    Ahhhhg Steam Sale is coming; look busy! I am sorely tempted by Bloodbowl. And there are still so many days to come.
  8. Google Plus aka Emerald Sea

    Agreed on Google Wave. I think they just failed on explaining it properly. I'm not even sure I properly grokked it, although I am sure there's something cool to grok.
  9. Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthdays? More like... um... have a lovely anniversary of your birth date. to Toblix and Subbes!
  10. Embarrassing Awkward Nerd Confessions

    Well at least you can keep beads in it.
  11. The sad sad tale of Tim Langdell

    Holy crap it still says right there on his website that future publishing is under licence from him! And no, PiratePoo, I don't feel sorry for him at all. In fact I think he needs to be punished more, with a prison sentence. I consider much of his activity to be criminal. I'd love someone to get a comment from the IGDA on how they gave this person a place on their board.
  12. The sad sad tale of Tim Langdell

    "nontrepreneur". I like it. Describes his type very well. That really is some incredible behaviour for someone is a court of law. I can't fathom how he thought he could get away with any of it. It suggests some kind of megalomania or solipsism or something. You just know that inside he is ranting about "how it's all their fault and that stupid judge etc"
  13. Tabletop RPGs

    So the prologues will be beginning any moment now. The party is: Charkaegh "Charlie" Shalestone (PiratePoo)(Barbarian, striker) Roland McDoland (?)(toblix)(Sorcerer, striker) Quelan Laerco (Gwardinen)(Wizard, controller) Wallace Plankhail (Murdoc)(Fighter, defender) Gimlin Greyhammer (Sombre)(Cleric, leader) Prototype #6 (Hermie)(Bard, leader) Can we all confirm? (if you've signed up to pbpmap then I consider that confirmed). I can fit one, maybe two more players in, if Korax or anyone else that expressed interest is still watching. Make yourselves known now!
  14. Obligatory comical YouTube thread

  15. Duke Nukem Forever Canned [and then not]

    It's bizarre. Where did all the man-hours go? I mean I can see that the code side of things would have to start over with every engine change. But the writing? The level design? How can the level design be so awful when some levels have had years to be fine tuned? Their whole workflow must have been appalling.
  16. Tabletop RPGs

    All good questions. I'm kind of feeling it out for myself, so suggestions welcome Register as yourself. There's out-of character discussion sub-forums and you might need another character in the (mindflayers forbid) case of death. Obsidian portal I plan to keep using for the wiki, character sheets and geographical maps. But it might turn out we don't need it really. Oh by the way, for names I am mostly using the Ever-changing Book of Names. I'll post on the wiki which regions use which naming schemes. You might find it handy. It's fun anyway.
  17. Tabletop RPGs

    Right! Enough delay. PbPmap have set us up a forum and a map (their map isn't as pretty as some but is easily customised, and it will do. We can try out something else at some point if we feel like it). You might want to find an image to use as your avatar. Their forums have integrated dice rollers with IDs etc and look well organised. our forum is at http://www.pbpmap.com/viewforum.php?f=481 So sign up! The map is not passworded so I'll send each your link privately. If you've got your character ready then we can go with your individual prologue/practice straight away (or pairs/small group as appropriate).
  18. Eric Chahi's Project Dust

    Reminds me of Black & White. And Magic Carpet. Oh man, Magic Carpet!
  19. Duke Nukem Forever Canned [and then not]

    No-one ever spoke of it again.
  20. Duke Nukem Forever Canned [and then not]

    This all reminds me of Snakes on a Plane. a weird meme with a loyal following and lots of grass-roots hype. A sub-cultural phenomenon. Then it came out and no-one ever spoke of it again.
  21. Books, books, books...

    Or at the very least needing citation.
  22. Life

    All goats have a bad attitude.
  23. Life

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! We are in fact such massive geeks that the forum web design takes precedence even over the prettiest of screen shots. All hail the style sheet!
  24. Sony Shitshow

    If their identities have been discovered then they are no longer Anonymous. (and yes I know what Anonymous is and I still mean what I said). ...that's... wow that's such a misrepresentation that it seems utterly malicious. Wired just went down in my view.
