SlightlyJames: your phone is gonna blow up with people asking for more
26 May 18, 06:08 PM
RetrogradeRun: I just hope they don't dance too much because I like to socialize once, maybe twice a month max
26 May 18, 06:06 PM
RetrogradeRun: It is I who plays the fiddle, their tastebuds will dance in delight at the hints of sweet relish and paprika
26 May 18, 06:04 PM
SlightlyJames: played like a damn fiddle
26 May 18, 06:04 PM
RetrogradeRun: Besides, it was my idea
26 May 18, 06:04 PM
RetrogradeRun: The offering of the potato salad is how I ingratiate myself
26 May 18, 06:03 PM
SlightlyJames: he only wants your potato salad
26 May 18, 06:02 PM
SlightlyJames: he's playing you man
26 May 18, 06:02 PM
RetrogradeRun: I said, sometimes I need to step out of my comfort zone and try to behave like I'm socialized
26 May 18, 05:58 PM
RetrogradeRun: when I got the invite it was a giant group text message and I didn't even know whose number the sender belonged to
26 May 18, 05:57 PM
RetrogradeRun: I've known him for a long time, most of our hanging out was usually incidental
26 May 18, 05:38 PM
k357: no idea why, must be the summer weather
26 May 18, 05:38 PM
k357: my skin condition is back with a vengeance
26 May 18, 05:15 PM
Vicomte+: Why are you going to the birthday party of a guy you barely know?
26 May 18, 05:02 PM
RetrogradeRun: I was going to get him a book on stretching or something but I highly doubt it would go to use
26 May 18, 05:02 PM
SlightlyJames: and that he loves potato salad
26 May 18, 05:02 PM
RetrogradeRun: I went to highschool with this kid but all I know about him now is that he has back problems
26 May 18, 05:00 PM
RetrogradeRun: my present will be this potato salad and a case of beer
26 May 18, 05:00 PM
RetrogradeRun: birthday BBQ
26 May 18, 04:58 PM
SlightlyJames: what kind of party is this
26 May 18, 04:56 PM
RetrogradeRun: I maybe should've diced the potatoes before boiling them
26 May 18, 04:51 PM
Lemmiwinks: Social interaction box ticked
26 May 18, 04:51 PM
Lemmiwinks: Go there, drink too much, play with the pets, go home
26 May 18, 04:45 PM
RetrogradeRun: I don't want to really go to this birthday party because I'm not close with any of these people but maybe I should sometimes put on a human appearance
26 May 18, 04:43 PM
RetrogradeRun: I'm making potato salad and hopefully this is an adequate amount
26 May 18, 04:33 PM
SlightlyJames: played another hour or so when I had the chance today, still pretty fuckin decent
26 May 18, 02:09 PM
RetrogradeRun: I bought a game, I don't want to be part of your aggregate data
26 May 18, 02:08 PM
RetrogradeRun: Prey had it, Soma had it
26 May 18, 02:08 PM
RetrogradeRun: I get a bit uneasy when there's, like, surveys in games
26 May 18, 01:56 PM
SlightlyJames: closed that quite quickly as it seemed like there was some stuff I didn't want to read
26 May 18, 01:50 PM
Infernisle: 96% no
26 May 18, 01:50 PM
Infernisle: was there a moment in detroit that resonated with you personally
26 May 18, 01:50 PM
Infernisle: holy shit this is amazing [link]
26 May 18, 01:02 PM
Infernisle: since they tend to do all the same shit without a bunch of pointless qtes
26 May 18, 01:02 PM
Infernisle: honestly being visual novels would be an improvement
26 May 18, 12:59 PM
RetrogradeRun: sort of
26 May 18, 12:59 PM
RetrogradeRun: at least it's not a visual novel
26 May 18, 12:57 PM
Infernisle: since he clearly just wants to tell his story and the rest of the shit is just in the way
26 May 18, 12:56 PM
Infernisle: i get the feeling those things only exist because it's a game in the first place though
26 May 18, 12:55 PM
RetrogradeRun: I guess you can't do that with a hollywood release, unless you had those little voting things under the seats or something
26 May 18, 12:55 PM
Infernisle: just very likely predictions because david cage is a fucking hack
26 May 18, 12:55 PM
Infernisle: no spoilers
26 May 18, 12:54 PM
RetrogradeRun: I wonder if "choose your own adventure" DVDs has been done before
26 May 18, 12:53 PM
RetrogradeRun: the QTEs just seem like reminders that you have a controller in your hand half the time
26 May 18, 12:52 PM
RetrogradeRun: I dunno why David Cage just doesn't make movies
26 May 18, 12:51 PM
RetrogradeRun: spoilers in that?
26 May 18, 12:47 PM
Infernisle: i wonder how many bingos there will be in a playthrough
26 May 18, 12:47 PM
Infernisle: [link] a bingo tailored to detroit
26 May 18, 12:46 PM
RetrogradeRun: we're all passed racism and we've banded together to hate robot slaves instead
26 May 18, 12:45 PM
RetrogradeRun: this one really just seemed like the movie "Crash" but with androids
26 May 18, 12:44 PM
Infernisle: i'll never understand why they get such good reviews. they're always terribly written and the gameplay is just qtes.
26 May 18, 12:41 PM
Infernisle: but in the way that makes you laugh throughout
26 May 18, 12:41 PM
Infernisle: cage games are all objectively terrible
26 May 18, 07:27 AM
Lemmiwinks: Well, Fahrenheit was sort of a mess with large chunks of the story clearly missing
26 May 18, 07:26 AM
Lemmiwinks: Cage games aren't bad, just consistently weirder as you go on
26 May 18, 05:39 AM
Koi: I refuse to believe it
26 May 18, 04:45 AM
SlightlyJames: I played the first couple hours of Detroit, pretty good
26 May 18, 04:13 AM
Koi: Man i neeeeeed a new pc chair
26 May 18, 02:33 AM
Infernisle: good thing too since i hear strange journey redux is super good
26 May 18, 02:33 AM
Infernisle: it runs pretty nice now.
26 May 18, 02:32 AM
Infernisle: man getting my new gpu has caused me to try out the 3ds emulator again
25 May 18, 09:10 PM
Lemmiwinks: Add sanitary pads
25 May 18, 08:30 PM
SlightlyJames: those default pads are a fuckin sweat factory
25 May 18, 08:30 PM
SlightlyJames: (except the ones on the left have velour pads instead of the wrinkly looking pleather)
25 May 18, 08:29 PM
SlightlyJames: [link] vs [link]
25 May 18, 08:28 PM
k357: yeah my indoor ones need an amp to sound decent and are big my outdoor ones are noise cancelling and have a way shorter cable
25 May 18, 08:27 PM
SlightlyJames: yeah, my house ones are a big fatass sennheiser pair that connect to a receiver disk thing that has a power socket, my outside ones are a lot smaller and waterproof, they connect with bluetooth.
25 May 18, 08:25 PM
k357: but i think thats extremely common
25 May 18, 08:25 PM
k357: you say that
25 May 18, 08:22 PM
Vicomte+: Of course. Your outside headphones.
25 May 18, 08:21 PM
SlightlyJames: then when I go outside I just wear different headphones
25 May 18, 08:21 PM
SlightlyJames: it gets especially bad when you can just get up and go to the kitchen or go for a shit and the headphones still do not depart your head
25 May 18, 08:16 PM
Vicomte+: Cut it off.
25 May 18, 08:01 PM
Infernisle: i get real bad headphone hair
25 May 18, 08:00 PM
Infernisle: it's actually become a problem. the headphone hair is too strong
25 May 18, 08:00 PM
Infernisle: i, too pretty much never take my headphones off
25 May 18, 07:44 PM
Lemmiwinks: Just the tip
25 May 18, 07:43 PM
SlightlyJames: I went from basically never wearing them outside of voice comms situations to having these bois on all the dang time
25 May 18, 07:43 PM
SlightlyJames: replacing the ear pads on these headphones was a real tipping point for me
25 May 18, 07:39 PM
Vicomte+: Based on amazon sellers' opinion of 'like new' it must look like hell.
