  1. Any Car Advice?

    I've never driven a Forester but I used to have an Outback. Subarus are fucking awesome. Do it!
  2. Does this matter? Midterm elections are a year and a half away. If slowdown now is disastrous, what are the odds of not getting any of that between now and next November?
  3. Board games!

    There is not. I think he just meant curing-only, vs. actually eradicating them. I played my first game of Yinsh today. Neat game.
  4. Video Games: Dawn of Waaaaagh!

    This was my experience with both Darksiders games. They are a lot of fun with decent production values until you abruptly hit a wall of "Well, that's enough of that forever." My current theory is that it's down to a fundamental misapprehension, by the designers, of what people like about those games. No one cares about their extensive move lists and long fight sequences, it's the Zelda-esque puzzles people like. Failing to realize that, we get lots of the former and eventually burn out.
  5. I'm entirely convinced nothing about GA-6 matters. He won't take 50%+, so it will go to runoff, and he won't win. If he did win, it wouldn't matter, because he can change zero (0) results in a hostile Republican-controlled house and he will lose it in 2018. Everything is terrible and mostly I am annoyed with my idiot fellow liberals who think that losing by less than usual is the same as winning. Is your guy in Congress? No? Then shut the fuck up.

    Ah, see, that's how they getcha.
  7. What is your definition of "meme"?

    I consider the original definition to require propagation. These days a one-off picture of a certain style is termed a meme, I think inaccurately but probably irreversibly. The definition you (Ormond) posted is nonsense, although who knows, maybe it too will become widely adopted, continuing the ongoing destruction of language and meaning.
  8. Attempted Coup in Turkey

    Is it credible that the voting was fair and free, or that Erdogan didn't just make up the results? Dictators aren't customarily concerned with legitimacy.

    I thought this was known, but ME:A was not developed by the team that made the first three ME games. BioWare Montreal hasn't made much that's entirely their own; their previous contribution to the ME series was basically the ME3 multiplayer. This game was never going to live up to the rest of the series.
  10. Joyous Pascha, Happy Easter!

    Happy Easter
  11. Video Games: Dawn of Waaaaagh!

    Beat Hollow Knight this morning. Probably not gonna bother returning for the good ending, fights are awfully hard for it. Might come back if they're really releasing a new playable character. Onward to Yooka-Laylee. So far it is the most Banjo-Kazooie game possible that doesn't have Banjo-Kazooie in its name.
  12. Board games!

    Also a board games person. Pandemic really is very good but it's very vulnerable to quarterbacking, where one person ends up basically making all the decisions. Machi Koro is one of our best small-group successes. Fun, cute, easy to learn, not too long at 30 minutes or less per round. We've had party success with Codenames and The Resistance. 2P we like Patchwork a lot. Hive and Jaipur are good too but I don't know if the strategy is as intuitive. I do absolutely love the solid feel and clinking together of Hive's bakelite pieces. You wouldn't think it would make that big a difference, but it does. Quality components really elevate a game.

    Hollow Knight update: a hair under 24 hours played, still amazing. It's rare for me to put that kind of time in. I think I'm pretty much at endgame, so now it's a question of whether I want to 100% it or just finish the story. I think I might actually 100% it. One thing that's awesome to me is that there's so much to do, but in a lot of games, I just find it overwhelming and end up not playing at all. In Hollow Knight there's always something where I think, "Ooh, I could go do that," but no one thing is so overwhelming that I don't want to start.

    Metroidvania lovers, you really, really need to be playing Hollow Knight.
  15. I am not entirely sure this is a bad idea. (Yes, I understand that upon reading that many of you will helpfully chime in to inform me that it is.) I get the argument that Trump didn't care when Assad killed people with bullets and conventional explosives, but chemical weapons one of the lines. They are categorically different. Comparisons to conventional weapons don't hold water. If a foreign state, today, killed people with nuclear weapons, you would feel very differently than you would if they just shot people. We really do not want chemical weapons to be normalized.
