  1. Gone Home from The Fullbright Company

    Yeah, having beat the game I don't really mind (and tend to agree w you) but I figured I'd draw your attention to it seeing as it was clearly a mistake

  3. Gone Home from The Fullbright Company

    In fairness, there is the explanation for that directly next to it. I do largely sympathise with your thoughts, but I didn't feel the same way (most likely because I'd already played the introductory act before).

    She wants some o' dat waggin' you draggin' mmhmm.

    Heh, good.

    I was brought up to believe that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. That's why I've not said anything about Fish, or this news, and why I think so many dislike his shown persona. EDIT: I think the spirit of that ethos is discouraging active meanness. On the spectrum, one may go from horrible to lovely with the grey area square in the middle. I think Fish's apparent erring on the side opposed to loveliness is why so many have a problem - regardless of his psychological state or apologies or what have you - and, as for my own feelings of the man, I've not said anything about his self. You may take from that what you will.
  7. Movie/TV recommendations

    You missed easily the best episode(s) in Human Nature/Family of Blood. In my opinion it's the best Doctor Who.
  8. Movie/TV recommendations

    I'm the same distance in and I think it's all great. Genuinely really enjoying the chances I get to watch it!
  9. To the first: it's fantastic. An absolutely brilliant adaptation. To the second: uh, yeah they do? I'm in the UK and read it as it is written
  10. When I saw the list of books discussed, I knew immediately that Dirk Gently was going to be Jake's book, and I wasn't disappointed. I think the thing that is most interesting about DGHDA is its playing with the absurd. Yes, you can talk about how its theme of holism is matched by its structure and wacky zaniness, but I really do just love its ridiculousness. It trusts the reader, too, to follow along and keep up, and it's always as though the reader is in on the joke -- everything is ridiculous, nothing is ever ridiculed, as it were.
  11. Upcoming books you want to read

    The Winds of Winter - George R.R. Martin. Yup, I'm one of those guys now.
  12. R.I.P. Ryan Davis

    "HEY EVERYBODY IT'S TUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUESDAY." I wish I could say something meaningful and thoughtful here. Having lost people close to me in the past, I know how devastating a time this can be. I didn't know Ryan personally - same as many of you, I only heard him on Bombcasts (and even then I didn't listen to the show religiously) - but the clear, complete sense of loss it has inspired in my twitter feed is incredibly saddening. It seems like, to everyone he met, Ryan was the sort of person I try to be. Charming, charismatic, witty, acerbic but never mean... I said it on Twitter, but I'll rephrase it for here: to have people who have never met you mourn your loss is an incredible thing. Bravo to Ryan Davis for having that be the memory he has left, and what a goddamn tragedy it is for his new family and his old friends.
  13. Books, books, books...

    It's not infuriating or anything, you simply click the link and then hit back up, but I imagine having to do it endlessly might become frustrating.
  14. Books, books, books...

    Isn't it the case that this book basically needs to be read on paper because the footnotes basically tell a story in and of themselves, or am I mistaken?
  15. Deleting or deactivating your account?

    No escape from reality!
  16. So the beta for TM 2: S is now available for all. Anybody up for some races? Add me on Maniaplanet: speedydesiato Also - A friend of mine and I are looking to go in for the 3- or 5-pack on Steam, reducing the cost of the game. Anybody interested?
  17. Gone Home from The Fullbright Company

    I showed off this video game at Rezzed this weekend. It was super well received, even by people who had no idea of its existence prior to seeing the booth. Hooray!
  18. Books, books, books...

    Link to the 1984 one?
  19. E3 2013 Idle Thumbs Steam Chat

    Still, PS+ games are games you might actually want/are relatively new for the most part. Not... Assassin's Creed II and Halo 3.
  20. Nextbox 1080: The Reckoning

    It wasn't scripted.
  21. Mirror's Edge 2. I'm not even fucking joking.

    Um I think you'll find it's Mirror's Edge. no 2 in sight
  22. Life

    ... I'll see what I can do. EDIT: Also, here is a thing I wrote in character for another play, called Gilbert is Dead. It's quite glib, but in case you have a spare moment:
  23. Life

    I would, but the rights to perform the play state explicitly that we can't record it
  24. Life

    I actually auditioned a regular audition - reading Blackadder and Percy, if I remember correctly - and was cast as Flashheart. This Thursday-Saturday we're doing 4 performances (inc. a matinee) where we're performing Head, Beer, and Bells (in that order) wherein I play Earl Farrow (Lord Farrow's briefly on-screen brother), Friar Frobisher (who throws up into Blackadder's chimney) and Lord Flashheart respectively. And hey, thanks Nachimir! PS: This is the bio I've sent in (and has been accepted!) for the show: As the world’s greatest lover, the UK’s most glamorous gentleman, and Durham’s finest bachelor, Phillipe Bosher was an obvious choice to play the part of Lord Flashheart. Born in darkness and raised in obscurity, Phillipe’s explosion onto the DST scene was marked with tremendous fanfare, jubilation, and the subsequent birth of over 500 Lothario Boshers in October 2013. Ladies – >9/10 only, please – call him at 555-BESTLOVR.

    I now consistently wake up thrice a night for varying lengths of time. It sucks majorly. In more positive news: this Thursday sees the start of our Blackadder II run! Tremendously excited.
