  1. Games giveaway

    I'd be most interested in C&C: Red Alert 3 if it's still available.
  2. Star Wars VII - Open spoilers

    I ... actually really hope they CGI in some greying wookie hair for the 10th Anniversary Faceulous Rift remaster.
  3. Far Cry 2

    Zeus, from what you're saying, it's that the sound is supposed to be coming from in front of you but it's actually being heard as if it's behind you (and vice versa)? But sounds that are supposed to be on the left or right are playing in the correct ear, yes?
  4. I don't have it to hand right now but I was looking at executive salaries the day before and Zynga-era Mattrick was on $6.5m. To illustrate the point about stock options and alternative forms of payment, Strauss Zelnick of ZelnickMedia / Take-Two Interactive was on $17k.
  5. Half-Life 3

    Gordon Freeman ... Gordon three-man ... the G-Man ... We have been playng through Half-Life and Half-Life 2 as the embodiment of Half-Life 3 ?
  6. Plug your shit

    Whaat he has a face? Whaaaaat? SPOILERS
  7. I Had A Random Thought...

    It's hardwired into human children and all cats.
  8. I Had A Random Thought...

    Dear Simon Cowell, Please replace Zayn Malik's vacated seat in One Direction with the vocal talents of Samuel L. Jackson. Merci,
  9. Nintendo 3DS

    Is anyone else getting It's On Like Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Flippin' Tippin' Stars?
  10. Post your face!

    I think I might get this blown up to poster size and blu-tacked to the wall
  11. Life

    Why can I sometimes not go back to sleep unless clutching a cushion? That ain't right man
  12. General Video Game Deals Thread

    I've not checked since yesterday but consensus was that Hitman Absolution met the minimum requirements and Life Is Strange - Episode 1 was a good shout for one of the others. Gets people into the season. Kane & Lynch Collection might be there because there's one less set of Steam keys promised than there are games? Iunno. Should probably have searched again before posting but hey.
  13. Where in the World - Idle Thumbs Map

    Naw. I'm sure there are more, just not on the map. Yet.
  14. General Video Game Deals Thread

    For some reason Steam thinks Anachronox is unavailable in my region, so I can't see the "friends who want" / "friends who own" information, though I see people on my Activity Feed buying new copies. Perhaps we could have some sort of game club and play through it more-or-less at the same time. Old timers and newcomers alike. Is that an achievable or even desirable aspiration?
  15. 2K's policy of sale-pricing Borderlands [Number] GOTY at less than Borderlands [N] Season Pass is an aggravation - especially as the Season Pass doesn't contain all the bits and bobs that'll be poured into the GOTY package. It's taught me not to buy Borderlands [New & Shiny] before it's available as a GOTY package, heavily discounted, on sale. What's the advantage? Is it just being able to inflate the number of copies of Borderlands [N] as price-sensitive fans will more likely buy the GOTY package, or is there more to it than that? That was a wonderful interview, by the way, Ben. Thanks!
  16. New people: Read this, say hi.

  17. The Dancing Thumb (aka: music recommendations)

    Liking this: https://soundcloud.com/kubbi/something-new The chap has a new album out if you want to see what he's got up to lately
  18. Which is best Bass?

    Cod ayu splash out and perch Super Black Bass AND the brill Super Black Bass 2 too?
  19. EGX Rezzed: March 2015

    Hmm. In my mind, Rezzed is still held in Brighton, and I think "Maybe I should move to Brighton", when of course it is held in London now. But maybe I should move to Brighton. Or wherever the new Brighton is.
  20. Games giveaway

    It looks like I had a limited window of time in which to give away a Gobliiins triple pack, thanks to GOG's Double Insomnia promotion.
  21. IDLE THUMBS 200

    I am really surprised that rancheros.juegos hasn't already been swiped... Is pod #200 a good time to establish a new round of entirely fictionalised inter-site beefs?Anyway, congrats Thumbs. You did good. The crew did good.
  22. Homeworld Remastered

    How's it working out for people? Going by the Steam user reviews, it's either still the best game ever after 90 minutes of play, or it's a half built remaster that's in beta when it really shouldn't be. edit - oh, crossposting
  23. Nuclear Throne: Oh! I accidentally ate my gun.

    That's it! The consumed cursed weapon consumes 7 robot healths, says the wikia
  24. Life

    I don't think I've read everything you have written on the matter, but thanks to you, because in that moment it really helped to bolster the real, lived experience of people who have left in the face of claims that it's easy to walk away at any time. Some years ago I was in more or less daily contact with someone who'd not long got out. I think they'd went with the "party" coping strategy, at the same time making the most of any educational opportunity available. Fair play, really. It's hard to come to grips with the bravery of people who do leave. Thanks. You're right. Related to that, did a fair number of other people born into it also leave (or try to) as you did? One of the members speaking to me said they'd grown up in a JW family but wasn't aware of anyone being badly affected by the effects of shunning policies as described. I got the impression they had to do a little mental loop-de-loop at that point, but I could have misread things. Sorry everyone for the detour. I don't mean get the thread all JW'd up unnecessarily.
  25. Half-Life 3

    The 5-hour long queue snake for that talk will spell out H_L_3
