  1. Edit: The guy above is right about the devil trains. They are kind of lame
  2. Couldn't agree more. Usually, I don't find horror games that scary, unnerving at times sure, but not frightening. This game for whatever reason scares the shit out of me, and I can only play for a short time before I nope the fuck out. The level and sound design is excellent and the writing is not too bad. The puzzles are a little on the easy side though. Still, it's a game worth checking out.
  3. I get where you are coming from, so here's a search text that helped me when I first began: how to do [insert your thing] in Ubuntu, Arch ect. Also, this webpage lists the more important debian bash commands as well as the pacman/yay https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Rosetta so this will definitely help a newcomer. It should also be said that you can double click on icons even icons for windows programs if you have wine installed. This all being said though, learning all this shit isn't for everyone, and maybe there should be a more watered down linux os for the average joe that is still open sourced.
  4. That encoding related stuttering you described sounds like a memory leak. Also, were you using Google Hangouts or Gmail while your web browser was open? Those cause memory leaks on my PC all the time.
  5. I see where you're coming from but I don't actually have that problem as long as it has the right context. So for plots, like Phantasmagoria 2, Slaugterhouse 5, Perfect Blue, which are about mental illness turning out to be all inside the protagonist's head is perfectly fine by me. Whereas, with stories like St. Elsewhere, Dallas., FFX ect., where that kind of plot element just appears out of nowhere without any real context or reason I find it to be kind of a cop out and really a sign of bad writing.
  6. I fucking knew that it was going to be one of the Phantasmagorias! On one of few Halloweens where I can't go out this made day! If I had known how deeply brilliant this plot actually is I would have bought this when it came out. For those who this isn't obvious: Curtis clearly suffers from a borderline-personality and ptsd. This explains the dissociation (feeling that he's alien, in an alien world, blacking out, and having a split personality), delusions, self depreciation along with severe self loathing, risk taking behavior and his chemical dependency(alcohol). Most of those "chemicals" that Ross mentioned are anti-depressants and pain killers except Fluconazole. Interestingly Flucanazole is normally prescribed for vaginal yeast infections and when combined with amitriptyline it can cause suicidal thoughts and actions. I suspect that this may have been the real reason his mother committed suicide. I also suspect that the entire plot may have actually been some sort of immersive therapy or Curtis simply working out his shit. Anyways, thanks Ross for the great vid and I am definitely going to play this now.
  7. This game is awesome! The atmosphere, the variety in skill sets, the fast and visceral combat that is still tactiful, and as arpg's go the storyline is actually kind of interesting. One of my all time favs for sure.
  8. I briefly worked for Apple's helpdesk call center and can answer this. Apple doesn't purposefully slow down their older iphones with the new updates. They just generally roll them out without giving any fucks as to whether the old hardware can handle it or not. This happened to the iphone6 during my first week out of training and iirc there was actually a post-update patch for it and I had to play damage control in the meantime. Granted the iphone6 was still pretty popular back then and I'm guessing they wouldn't do that for a lesser used phone.
  9. Hey Ross, are you a minotaur? Do you enjoy traipsing about maze-like levels and going in circles for countless minutes because you didn't know what that switch did or where that last colored door is? Then holy fuck this throwback is for you! ...it is fun if you can get past that though.
  10. I'm was truly surprised at the sheer quality and attention to detail that this mod has. Like the dude above me said, this way better than the newer AAA Wolfensteins. Another excellent Doom mod to check out is Ashes 2063.
  11. Tried playing it years ago, got frustrated and quit. Like the dude above me said it's a Myst alike on an alien world, with very abstruse puzzles. Though, the real reason I'm commenting is to let folks know that you can actually buy it on GOG.
