    Find the Mantis ship, unlock the second configuration, abuse the 4-person teleport room. =3

    Got my second win with them, although two of my men stayed behind and sacrificed themselves in destroying the rebel flagship. *salutes Magmar and other crewman whose name I forgot because it did not happen to randomly be a pokemon* >.>

    The only possible solution is to play it until you get sick of it, although I suppose you'll have to set aside a significant portion of your calendar for that...

    It's pretty fast-paced despite not feeling especially so. You start off slow, battle with a crippling fuel shortage or have a lucky enemy deoxygenise half of your ship, work up a neat flow and then suddenly you've reached the final sector and realise that you lack the firepower to take out the boss. And then it starts over and nothing is the same while you're stuck in this sort of euphoric haze trying to micromanage your weapons to fire for optimum effect while at the same keeping a rotating schedule for your crew's close quarter battle duties so that they all won't have to die at the hands of the Mantis boarders.

    Littlest brother scornfully called it a Flash game, but the level of depth is only on par with some of the best Flash games I've ever played, and those games were good. It also has a better replayability on virtue of being a rougelike(-like).

    Roguelikes seem to be making something of a return recently. FTL, Binding of Issac, Dungeons of Dredmor, Spelunky....

    We don't talk about D3 hardcore mode.

    it would be entirely logical given that the succubus is actually temptation personified and supposed to dish it out instead of succumbing to it

    So... I seem to have found this thread now

    I loved D3, but don't seem to have a stable enough connection during my spare time to play it anymore

    neither have I had time for TF2 and LoL... And I want to start with BL2... Oh woe is me

    Man, it seem's like everyone's getting into this game I haven't played. It feels like Minecraft all over again. Atleast with FTL I see the point though, Minecraft is just a cute diversion

    Instead lets talk about Torchlight 2's hardcore mode. I think it has one. Also, I WANT to say Borderlands 2 is a roguelike, atleast in terms of difficulty and random guns.

    It's a lot of fun, though after you win a few times, it kinda loses a lot of its pull, IMO. Still a fun game to get people addicted to. =3

    Have you played Torchlight 2 yet? Seems like I grabbed that ages ago, and I still haven't done more than install it. >.<

    I have not installed it yet since I want to be careful about my gigabyte usages. I think, at the end of the month, if it looks like I did good on conservating, I'll install it. Then we'll have another excessively long RPG game to play together.

    Ah, a roguelike isn't just about random loot. The encounters and map have to be random as well but the big criteria is fatalness. In a roguelike, you get one life, no saves, no continues and when you snuff it it's "game over, please insert 50c".

    Spelunky has all kinds of wonderful ways to die, whether its jumping down from a ledge and wondering why the ground hasn't appeared yet, being vapourised by flying saucers, eaten by giant piranha or being gulped up by a carnivorous plant. Then it's back to the very very beginning again.

    My digestive system is eminently displeased with the burdens I placed upon it this weekend, loads which no after-dinner walks in the cool autumn evening nor spirited matches of ping-pong could leaven.

    It had snowed in the city just before the weekend, but almost all of it had melted away. -- but on the drive out to the country, the ditches and forests were covered in it. It was magical. Likely that will be the last time I see a wild body of water unfrozen until the spring. I had a last taste of its crisp fluid betwixt goblets.

    Remember how I said I was playing Sacred Stones?

    I just promoted Gilliam to a General. That axe animation.

    Still haven't had a chance to see his throwing-axe animateion, but I hope it's more like his melee-axe and less like his throwing-spear (seriously, that one looks pathetic).

    Also, you know Artur? You know that room in the chapter called "It's a trap!"? The one with two treasure chests and... I think it was five knights? Sent Artur in, killed one in two casts. Then, enemy turn. Each and every knight came up, attacked, he dodged, and then two-cast killed all of them.

    Oh snow, how I long for you. We only get rain, rain, rain. We get rain en masse, but not massive enough to be dramatic, and it all boils down to this gray nothingness that's so characteristic for the autumn. Most trees still hang on to their leaves, but the redistribution of colour, from green to yellow, and from sky to ground, is already well underway. Soon they'll all be gone, and thus will the long, dark journey toward the asolar celebrations, and the long awaited excuse for us to bring light into our lives, begin.

    And when the sky is clear, and the sun is present, if not in spirit, so at least in luminescence, then you weep, weep in sorrow over all that's dead, and weep in joy over the beauty that still remains.

    This morning, I was sitting here and thinking about looking up today's weather in the newspaper to tell if I'd need any rainwear or not. It turned out that one look out the window was all I needed to tell that yes, I did indeed need it.

    ION:
    Automata Theory has an interesting difficulty curve, not entirely unlike the process of getting ketchup out of a glass bottle. At first, everything is clear as a day, almost to the level of being called obvious, and then you run into Turing machines and what they can and can't do, and suddenly you're stuck in these extremely circuitous proofs, and the mantra to remember is "if there is an exception to the rule, then there was no rule in the first place".

    Despite never having heard that term, I think I get the gist of what you mean. And no, you can't portion Rice's theorem out over the course in sizable chunks (or as a constant stream, to keep up the ketchup analogy). That just wouldn't work, sadly.

    This guy. Though I almost cut off one of my thumbs grabbing a spare bucket out of the dumpster. x.x
    On the plus side you do still have two thumbs.

    Yep. Hopefully they turn the power back on before midnight though, as I'd rather like to have a place to sleep tonight, since I can't seem to find anywhere to couch surf in case it doesn't.

    Apart from being riddiculously overdesigned, that's pretty much what I imagined you meant.

    For the record, any ketchup bottle with more design than this is riddiculously overdesigned in my opinion:

    What exactly is preventing you from sleeping in a powerless house? I mean, if you get an extra blanket, you could probably sleep through below zero (Celsius) temperatures without even noticing (I know this from experience, and our blankets weren't even especially thick).
    Finally home from my Tour de Friends. Slowly recovering, I'll be uploading more pictures every few days.

    I personaly agree, but to be completely honest, the types of bottles we have now are just so ergonomic and easy to use. The bottle is designed to be REALLY easy to squeeze, so the ketchup never has difficulty coming out. Sometimes it has too much ease and the inside of the cap gets messy though (but only if you're lazy and never clean it)

    I LOVE the bottle thing, soooo. ... I DISAGREE WITH TEDDY? Ketchup comes out so GOOD.

    Internet withdrawal. I'd go crazy with no ability to read or otherwise entertain myself for the hours before I'd be able to sleep.

    That and my flatmates would carve me up like a taun-taun because they'd be convinced they'd freeze to death.

    Now they're just warming up their hands in one another's bras for some inane reason in celebration of the power coming back on.

    My idea is this: that ketchup come in wide-mouthed jam jars, and be spread with a knife.

    Next summer, when my now fully upgraded garden is in full fruition, I shall reap an untold spessartine bounty of tomatoes: and with the excess, make ketchup in just this way.

    Indeed! I was privileged to have two full dinners, one at the cabin with friends of my brother's family, one the next day with all the family at my parents' house. I have practiced gluttony at Level: Falstaffian.

Soon they'll all be gone, and thus will the long, dark journey toward the asolar celebrations, and the long awaited excuse for us to bring light into our lives, begin.

    And when the sky is clear, and the sun is present, if not in spirit, so at least in luminescence, then you weep, weep in sorrow over all that's dead, and weep in joy over the beauty that still remains.

    This morning, I was sitting here and thinking about looking up today's weather in the newspaper to tell if I'd need any rainwear or not. It turned out that one look out the window was all I needed to tell that yes, I did indeed need it.

    You're a lovely human being, Teddy.
