  1. I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee I as well used to think that ASRock is a great combination of low price, good peripheral functionality and feature-rich BIOS, but their motherboards fail me so reliably that it crosses any and all boundaries of statistical uncertainty. I had to deal with five (all different models), and not a single one of them worked for more than a couple years. Last two of them failed one month after the warranty ran out. I swear, there are some engineering geniuses working at ASRock's Planned Obsolescence Department.
  2. Okay, I admit that I do agree with you here. (Also I like how this instantly reminded me of your previous pearl about post-2004 games).
  3. Superiority complex is when someone considers himself superior. This does not apply to me in any way, shape or form. Au contraire, I consider myself a painfully plain and average person in pretty much every aspect. This is the very reason why I find all those "LInux is for geeks" bullshit ridiculous.
  4. All my elder relatives use Linux only. They actually find it way more friendly than Windows, for exactly the same reason why the 13-years-old boy that I mentioned: they have a fresh pair of eyes and can judge objectively. (Before you ask: for certain reasons my grandparents got into Internet only around 2010 and they pretty much had no experience whatsoever with computers before that).
  5. Another opinion from mid-2000s. There is exactly one thing for which Windows is suited better: games. That's all. Everything except gaming is better done in Linux. I found out about Linux (almost by accident) in 2008, and by 2010 I wasn't even booting my PC into Windows anymore, aside from gaming. Since I don't play many games, I guess I could just remove the goddamn thing from my HDD to free up some space.
  6. You look like you've been in a time capsule for about a decade or so. Modern Linux distributions are easier to install AND use than Apple, forget Windows. You absolutely can use nothing but Linux without even seeing the console for months. I have an elder friend who didn't show Windows to his son, until he turned 13 or 14 years and was forced to use Windows in school. Instead, the first OS this boy saw was Linux. And when he finally had to learn Windows, he was shocked by just how ugly and illogical it is compared to Linux. This is a small example that shows that all those talks about how Linux is “user unfriendly” and “hard to understand” are caused by the fact that people already have their brains raped by Windows. In psychology this is known as “Baby duck syndrome”.
  7. I know, right?! After giving it some thought, I came to a conclusion that people like you and me might just be kinda jaded, and *normal* people just have a lower "intensity bar".
  8. I think I am going to overdose on Ross tonight...
  9. Not sure if trolling, or just stupid. If the Goebbels-style lies on the posted screenshot - so audacious it borders on Chutzpah - does not disgust you and you still find it justifiable in any way, shape or form, then you are incurable.
  10. Ross's bar of "hardcore" and "intense" is really low (remember that he even separated the rather tame "Still Life" episode into an age-restricted two-parter), so I think the range of possible games is so huge that there's no point to even try guessing.
  11. https://youtu.be/Z-tF0NKdh24?t=1063 It's part of the racket.
  12. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqWbjZ_t9qDlY08FPwztA2wXoil0mzusM Joel Nielsen is truly a genius. His Black Mesa soundtrack never left my playlist for seven years (ever since it was released), and now he somehow managed to upstage himself.
  13. Motorhead? Seriously?.. I always assumed that this game is well-known enough to not end up on this list. Anyway, this game is among the list of games that aged extremely well. Buttery smooth. Great soundtrack by Olof Gustafsson. Clean, crisp visuals.
  14. WAY too depressing for me. Considering that Ross seems to be even more biased against depressing games, I'm amazed this game is on the list. Maybe I just have a vivid imagination and this game hits a bit too close to home.
  15. I can say with full responsibility that there is absolutely no reason to try this game unless you are Russian. The whole gimmick of this series is that it is jam packed with cultural references. If you're an American, your experience with any of the "Петька и ВИЧ" games including this one will be akin to Armed and Delirious.
  16. This screenshot is freaking perfect. I don't know who was choosing screenshots for Ross's list but they definitely did a great job.
  17. A great game if you are missing that Fallout 1/2 feel and need a fix. At the time of this writing the game is still very raw (especially in terms of English translation), so I would strongly recommend waiting for a while before giving it a try.
  18. Awwww yes. Stumbling upon this game in Ross's list was a treat. This is the first and only time in my life when I made a pre-order of a video game. Let's hope these guys deliver.
  19. I second this. Watching youtube reviewers over-analyzing this game trying to find some deep meaning in it was amusing.
  20. Ross, you have no idea what degree of soap-opera-ness this game reaches by the end. I really like games about interesting characters with rich psyches, except this is not what Firewatch is.
  21. This sums up my thoughts so perfectly I have nothing to add.
  22. I am amazed that Ross got interested in this game, since he said several times that he doesn't like depressing games, and this game is gut-wrenching even for heartless scum like me.
