  1. I'm 20, almost 21, does that make me genz or millennial? I always call myself millennial but I think I just baaaarely make the cut Anyway I suck at picking out favorites so here's a list of just a few things I've been listening to lately Parquet Courts
  2. Did you use 60 fps to simulate dizziness, or am I imagining things?
  3. Usually it's something by Bad Religion, although I'll at least try out most genres.
  4. Then could you clarify exactly what you mean? Right now the only statements you've made are: Modern society is killing people slowly with meaningless desk jobs Nobody who disagree with me is capable of understanding my point Without honor bad things happen I really don't have any idea what your point is. It's not that I can't understand how you got to a certain point, it's that you have yet to take any sort of cohesive stance, leaving the rest of us to attempt to fill in the gaps.

    My fucking dad just decided that he doesn't need to pay my mom the amount he is legally obligated to pay for my wisdom tooth surgery. There's no way in hell that we can afford to bring him to court over this, and coupled with the guy we rent the back room of our house out to moving away there's going to be some financial hardship. For someone who claims to want the best for my brother and me he sure does make our lives considerably harder just to screw over my mom. It's not like he didn't know about it either, he was informed and agreed to pay for it months in advance. It even ended up costing less than it was supposed to. I guess the really sad thing is that I'm not even surprised he acts this way anymore.
  6. So correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that your point is that "War is necessary because without it we have no honor, honor is necessary because without it war would be so much worse". This is circular reasoning at best, and stating war is the only context in which someone can be honorable is kind of a stretch.
  7. Saying that someone is incapable of understanding something without even attempting to explain isn't conducive to a good conversation.
  8. Texas is just way too hot for me to enjoy it, and because I signed up and didn't really do anything with the account until recently.
  9. Double length episode seems to be most probable, but another .5 episode wouldn't be too out of place. Maybe we'll see a hint at Freeman's Mind in HL2 as well.
  10. I'm Xanthien. My real name is too unique to post on the internet, I'm an 18 year old High School senior living in Texas and moving to Vermont next fall for college (assuming I can pay for it). I play lots of video games, compete in Science Olympiad, and am generally a sarcastic asshole. I'd give a more detailed description but my life has been in a state of flux for the last two years and I'm not really sure how to concisely sum everything up in a way that describes who I am.
  11. You're a troll, right? There are numerous examples about how killing for your country is NOT morally excusable. I hate to get all godwinny, but Nazi Germany is an excellent example of this. Also there is no such thing as "killing merely for war", wars have a cause of action behind them that either is or isn't morally justifiable.
  12. Unless you're not a commander, or you died doing something stupid, or you died in a way that's in no way glorious (the vast majority of casualties in wars throughout history have been from disease rather than combat). The odds are that as an individual you will not be remembered by history. You may be remembered as part of statistic, but I fail to see how any honor or glory comes from that.
  13. It's not just that Xen is really well done (although it is), part of it is due to the fact that it's nearly a complete reversal of most of what you've seen in the game before. It's a very dramatic tone shift, and the sudden change adds to how surreal it seems in a big way. That may also be why some people don't like it though. Hopefully Black Mesa Source does a good job with it.
  14. It is similar to Cyberstorm in some ways, but it has no real time element. Also the lore isn't as expansive as the Cyberstorm/Earthseige/Tribes universe, but that's sort of to be expected. Here's the magnet link to the torrent I used. magnet:?xt=urn:btih:549661d47f2443fb6f4c72ca8a5dc3f469122877&dn=Deadlock+2+%28PC+GAME%29&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.publicbt.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.istole.it%3A6969&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Fopen.demonii.com%3A1337
  15. I recently found a place to get this abandonware game after remembering sneaking out of bed into the living room to play the PCgamer demo of this game on my family's shared computer when I was 7 or so. Did anyone else ever play this? Deadlock is a turn based strategy game released by Accolade in the late 90's (I think) where up to 8 separate sentient races attempt to colonize a planet. The game has an interesting resource management system where you manually assign colonists to work on either resource collection, money collection, culture growth (basically a way to keep your colonists happy while taxing them more), or building and unit construction. The gameplay is really fun and aside from the clumsy UI and pixelated graphics the game doesn't feel particularly dated today. The lore and alien species are interesting, but not incredibly well developed. The graphics also range from abysmal to somewhat serviceable. I'd put a link to where I found a place to get the game, but I'm not sure what the policy is here on links to torrent sites. It works fine with minimal hassle on 64 bit Windows 7.
