    Political Compass

    Similar to the Personality type thread, I think it'd be handy to have one for the Political Compass. As far as my searching shows, it's been brought up before briefly, but not as a standalone thread (if I'm wrong, feel free to moderate this as necessary) http://www.politicalcompass.org/ Considering recent posts made on the forum, I think it'd be handy for people to know what each other's general stances are, so as to reduce the chance for harsh standoffs. Please only have polite discussion here. Politics is a very important and personal issue (for me anyway), but I accept that not everyone shares my views, and their views are the opposite of mine. However, I won't call you out on it, because I have as much chance of changing your stance as you have of mine. Accursed Farms is a place of discussion, not fighting. So, here's my result. It's interesting to compare your result with well-known names: https://www.politicalcompass.org/analysis2

    things you don't like about yourself

    Well tonight I was told that having my hair down makes me look like a sex offender, so growing my hair out was probably a poor decision.

    Political Compass

    That's the really depressing bit. You can implement the perfect, truly fair system, and there'll always be a segment of the population who will game it for their own personal gain, eventually to the detriment of others. But then, how do you enforce the system without becoming too authoritarian? At what point does peace become oppressive? Is the fight for freedom more valuable than the freedom itself? Disclaimer: it's past midnight am I'm slightly drunk. Does existence even make sense? Don't answer that, I need to go to bed.

    Games you like that others don't

    How about old games that you like, but reckon younger generations wouldn't? Two of my all-time favourite games - Timesplitters 2 and GTA III would probably be considered too restrictive and basic compared to juggernauts like GTA Online and Fortnight. But back in the day they were considered part of the gold standard of PS2 games, and I'll forever defend them with my Dualshock 2. Also Vice City and Timesplitters Future Perfect.

    Political Compass

    Whoa, this thread is still going? Points to the OP These days I've realised that I'm not fully comfortable with having any -isms attached to my views. To re-post a rant I sent to a friend last month: It's this attitude I see from some people online that being left-wing or advocating Socialism makes you naive and that you don't know understand how the world or economics works. I mean I'm only left-wing because my outlook on life fits the Socialist narrative. I'm vaguely aware of how the world works, but I want to CHANGE how it works so humanity, as a whole, is smarter and able to look past their own selfish needs and not destroy the environment and other people's live for short-term gain. Does that make me naive, or just convinced that humanity can do better than what it currently is?

    Rate the Last Movie you saw.

    Holiday, by Isabella Eklof. I got to the end of that movie feeling like I'd been beaten up - for about an hour or more afterwards I had no feelings of joy or happiness in any part of my being. I would rather watch Schindler's List 1000 times than this movie again. At least in SL, there is a degree of hope, redemption, an eventual faith in the good of humanity. There is *none* in this film, just bleak, awful violence and misogyny. But, it was brilliantly constructed and just about achieves what it was meant to do. 8/10 Recommendation: only watch if you hate positive feelings,

    I think I may be a vocal clone of Ross...

    There's a similarity I feel, but it's more with the pitching of the voice, than the actual accent. I could do a similar thing with my weird Anglo-Scot hybrid mess.

    *Battle Royale in the Biased Against list* Thank you Ross. The explosive popularity of Fortnite makes me feel concerned that it will define the common perception of videogames. The stress I get from the state of the videogame world is how superficially bloated and routine the big releases have become. I mean, I don't really play new games - I upgraded to a PS3 at the beginning of this year - but I look at AAA title trailers and images and they all look homogenised and habit-reinforcing. That's not to say it was never like that before, but it feels especially nauseating considering the amount of money spent both by publishers and audiences, and which feels significantly misspent. And you make a good point about the sheer scale of great games out there. There is more than you'll be able to play in your lifetime, so it's a stroke of luck if a small studio makes a breakthrough game and gets noticed. It's exactly the same with the music industry. I'd love to hit it big with my bands, but there's so much music already out there, and people doing the exact same thing as me, that even the smallest amount of attention has to be savored and promoted. I'll definitely have a gander at this list.

    Enough to bring me back here, but for how long? Who knows. How much have I missed??

    How can you possibly provide fast and efficient technical support service when the systems you use run achingly slow and sometimes lock you out? Britain's telecommunication infrastructure is ass.

    Played one of these at new year. Hands are still sore.

    Happy New Year all. What better way to start 2017 off than with a cold. And a house party full of coke-snorting radgies playing hardcore EDM. My housemate said it'd only be a small gathering. This wasn't meant to be a party house either.

    The original Tomb Raider. The original Playstation controller is adorably small and light.

    Richard Adams, creator of Watership Down, also died today. George Michael a couple of days ago too. It's been quite a year.

    A nice red sweater. I feel like Harry Potter when Mrs Weasley knitted him one.

    What are you eating/drinking?

    Morador Malbec. Not the classiest wine as it's for Sainsbury's, but it's a decent enough Red.

    Alreet lads? Just thought I'd pop by and give an update with me life to those who are interested: Working full-time, moving between houses, picking up a girlfriend, and having a hectic time with the band (guitarist leaving during festival season, and training up a new one) has all left me with no real time to stay up to date with both the forum and Accursed Farms in general. But I'm on the second of three days off where I don't have anything to do (me lass is in Germany for the holidays). Hope everyone's well Not sure how active I'll be on here moving forward, but I'll do what I can. I'm getting holidays booked over the next few months to do music and games, so I'll put some time aside for the forum (and my AF spin-off). In the meantime, stay cool, feel beautiful, and have a picture from my most recent gig.

    A Mind mini-series: not worth it?

    When Ross released the 60.5 Episode of Freeman's Mind - where he teleports into the countryside - I got the idea for making a FM spin-off in which Freeman teleports to another game (which also builds on the concept of Freeman-Across-The-Universe). I have a game in mind, I've done a couple of playthroughs and have most of the script written. HOWEVER, it's on a games console (not released on PC), and hence all I can do is record the audio-video, and make dubs as well as the main voiceover. I would not be able to do things such as disabling the HUD. I've got the technical side figured out for recording (I know what equipment I need to buy, but open to advice), but I'm concerned that the presence of the HUD would wreck the immersion and put people off. Add to that the obvious need for a substitute Ross voice, and I'm wondering - is it worth the money, time and effort?
