Some people call me a space cowboy.

Even the early MGS games are shorter than they should be.  They don't feel like it due to the excruciatingly long cut scenes but if you replay them and skip the cut scenes, they are freaking short.  I'm pretty sure I beat MGS 2 in less than three hours once.  (I replayed the hell out of it for reasons that escape me now because the game sucked balls.  Oh wait, I remember.  It was the game I bought a PS2 for and bludgeoned myself over the head with it, beating it on every difficulty, collecting all the items, etc because 1. it was the only game I had for the system at the time and 2. I was damn well going to get my money's worth from the stupid thing.)  I assume MGS 4 is more of the same but I never finished it, my experience with the game was a handful of actual gameplay, none of which were longer than fifteen minutes (they could have been even shorter but I explore like crazy) seperated by cut scenes, the shortest of which was a half an hour.  How about no? 

I could rant for literally hours on how horrible I find the design and implementation of MGS 2 and 4 (I liked 3but I seriously think it was made as an apology to the fans for how much 2 sucked) but instead of ranting I'll just say, fuck Hideo Kojima.  He's a hack who is STILL riding the coattails of his earlier sucesses.  He is the only game designer I can think of who does worse as technology improves because he can't do anything to "limit" his creative vision.  The first MGS struck a better balance between game play and cinematic because of the limits of what they could cram on the discs back then plus it was a very cool glimpse at video games were capable of.  He should have quite while he was ahead.

I'm still on once in a while.  And go ahead and necro it, the point of that thread is to keep those handy to review, it'll get buried in this thread before long.

Holy crap guys, did you see this week's Roguelike old-school boners Humble Bundle Weekly Sale? Dungeons of Fucking Dredmor Complete! And some other stuff but Dreds, holy shit that game is amazing. I know many of you have it but have it severely underplayed but for the rest of you who don't have it, that bundle is worth it for Dreds alone. You also get a bunch of other games as a bonus!

With that said, already have half of them and the ones I don't have are either Early Access (Pass) or stuff I can't run but are over the average. Still worth it for Dreds.
I own every thing I would play in that bundle except Hack Slash Loot but I've accumulated enough Roguelikes by this point that I'm past buying a game simply because it's a Roguelike.  Because of the randomness that defines the genre you really only need a handful of quality ones to last you your lifetime.  Agreed though, if you don't already have Dredmor get it.  It's among the best of the best.  If I were to ever take the crown of best Roguelike ever from Nethack and give it to another Roguelike it would be Dredmor.  That's seriously the best praise I can possibly give it.

Even if my state allowed it my job wouldn't.

When you're 15 rule of cool trumps practicality.  And I did not use the cookbook, even back then those in the know were muttering it was a disinformation campaign.

Unlocked!  Not sure why that happened to begin with.

PP:  So fed up with a lot of things right now.  I haven't slept more than five hours in a night in longer than I can remember and usually it's closer to four.  I just feel stressed all the time and the decision to drastically cut back on my drinking hasn't helped me handle the stress any better.  I tried smoking again but apparently I've gone so long without doing so that even though I still have nic fits I can't stand the taste.  Bottom line I guess my PP is I don't seem to have any healthy safety valves.

I own 3 fedoras, all purchased long ago in aspirations to be like Indiana Jones when I grew up.  I would say that makes me able to lay claim to pre-dating hipsterism but just saying something like that would defeat the purpose so I won't.

Fun fact, I once constructed a flamethrower using information gathered from an army field manual and plans for a potato gun I heavily modified.  I was very proud of it, I had even taken the time to boil gasoline down as part of creating the napalm like ammo and was using CO2 cartridges and compressed air as propellant.  I'm sure it would have worked but my dad found out what I was up to and halted attempts to test fire it.  I'm pretty sure it was dismantled and the pieces scattered to the four winds.  One of the reasons I'm proud of this accomplishment is that it was done pre-internet.  I did intense research where now I'm sure you could look up how to build a flamethrower with little to no effort.  Shockingly my parents did not drink themselves to death before I finally got kicked out but they still (charitably) refer to my teen years as "challenging."  I think I was fifteen when I built the flamethrower, I know it was before I was old enough to drive but after I blew up a stump with home made C4.  The stump demolition was more leniently regarded because I saved my dad a lot of work but I did get one of those, "so help me if you ever even think about doing that again" speeches.

Some of you may remember a while back I talked about the game Deadly Premonition for the XBox 360.  It's a quirky bizarre game but despite (and partly because) of that, it's well worth playing.  Right around Halloween last year they released a special director's cut of the game on Steam with more content and I caught myself almost rebuying it a few times.  Well for those of you who want to check it out for the first time or want to pick it up and see what the difference is (like me) it's currently part of the latest indie gala bundle.  http://www.indiegala.com/  You get it and a boatload of other games if you pay more than the average which last night was 5.19.  Though the "Two Brothers" game is NOT the game where you control two characters at the same time that just came out a few months ago, it's an homage to Game Boy JRPG's.  Not a bad thing but possibly not what you're expecting.  

EDIT:  While I'm plugging games, "LaMulana" is on sale as the Steam daily deal for 1.49.  If you like Metroidvania type games (like symphony of the night) and/or brutally hard platformers and/or twisted logic puzzle games get this game.  It's well worth the 1.49.  HK in particular I think would enjoy it, I know your specs for your PC are rough but if you even think you might be able to run this old school pixelfest, check it out.  It's a good game, even though the learning curve ramps up sharply and steeply very early in but it rewards milestones with a sense of accomplishment that is almost as intense as Dark Souls.

I need to do that.  I originally wanted to do them guide free because Chop is supposed to be able to help you find them.  But... the dumb ass keeps taking me to body armor and ammo crates.  I think he's helped me find a grand total of two parts, the rest I have I just managed to stumble across on my own through the course of playing the game.

Man I still need to continue my 100% on that.
Same, I'm stuck on the collection quests and can't get motivated to complete them.

Dark Spire was awesome, almost pure old school dungeon crawling the likes of which haven't been seen since the early Wizardy games.  It's also brutally hard.  I don't remember where I got stuck at but I honestly forgot I owned it until you mentioned it.

Speaking of my DS, I need to dust it off and finish the Edgeworth Investigations game one of these days also.

I have been practicing drawing butts, they are actually really hard for me! I am glad everyone noticed Cheesy

This totally reminded me of

THIS

Just subistute "naked people" at the end for "butts" and it will become even more hilarious. 

Link is SFW despite the way this now sounds.

PP: I'm upset that it's not socially acceptable to talk about how excited I am about Dio all the time.
This cracked me up because I read your comment and am typing this reply I'm cranking Black Sabbaths albums "Heaven and Hell" and "The Mob Rules" both Dio albums.  It's ALWAYS socially acceptable to talk about Dio.
