  1. fellas, did oldSPUF ever have an Archmage MC as one of its posters? I ran into a dude named that in a 2fort server the other day and it sounded familiar + he carried a lot of the bizarre cynical elitism a lot of the old SPUFians carried

      I remember that guy, BLK I mean

      Yeah I remember BLK, crazy that he's a DSP simp now. Small world I guess.

      Did a search for "blk_mage_ctype" and got results for him posting on a DSP forum.  So confirmed I guess.

      This is not an original thought

  3. With Flash being taken behind the shed out back at the end of the year, it really does feel like the golden age of the internet is officially over, with the internet now turning entirely into a corporate hegemony with no attempt for anything that isn't monetized.
    Is this how the cowboys felt?

      One of the reasons my windows 7 computer is still being used by me is for flash files.

       

      Last version of walfas create.swf is saved on that hard drive.

      Anyone that would make flash games is now probably making phone games instead, with in-app purchases of course.

      In the twilight days of flash games microtransactions were pretty common, so that's almost certain.

  4. Why is GOG hellbent on sending me deals that look like spam?

    1. Gyokuyoutama

      Gyokuyoutama

      GoG's management has went downhill in the last year.  Galaxy 2.0 is a joke.  Support is almost worse than Steam.

       

      They still dig up lots of games that I thought vanished from the face of the Earth and they still do a good job making them run hassle-free on modern OS's so I'll still support them but I don't like the trajectory.

  5. nothing quite says "pandemic" like my boss at the dojo saying he might have to lay me off.

    1. TheOnlyGuyEver

      TheOnlyGuyEver

      Dojo like karate?

    2. General DeGroot

      Yep. Might be the thing that gets me into a better job where I can actually have a social life again, so I welcome it.

  6. lord help me i'm back on tf2's bullshit. Currently running Comanglia's toaster config and I'm only getting 30 FPS. Any suggestions?

      I've heard good things about masterconfig.

      Ritualized? Man come on the worst that can happen from being ritualized is getting clap from the stripper dad bought you for your 18th birthday.

      It gets worse when you have to convert the guy to a fraction after.

      I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.  Hundreds baited by obvious pony threads.  I watched posters struggle to obtain worthless fireaxes by completing arbitrary challenges in a dying game.  All those moments will be gone now, like tears in the rain.

      I still whack my jag every night, in remembrance of what was lost. Among other reasons.

  9. Cracked open a monster ultra zero recently, now can't stop listening to Metallica/Alice in Chains and complaining about how much better games were back then

    Yep

      I used to pick up packs of those from the Dollar General and have one of those a day back when I was no-lifing Warframe with the boys last year, those were the best times I will ever have on this earth.

      I'm going to say something that may be controversial but I'm prepared to accept the backlash.

       

      Team Fortress 2 is a better game than Fortnite.

  16. Just so we're all in the know, the winter hunger games are liable to happen on the 22nd, with a possible break because i'm obligated to go to my dojang's christmas party. That or it won't happen because tight scheduling.

  18. A Hat in Time has to easily be the coziest game I've ever played. Sitting my ass down in my comfiest clothing while it rains outside playing this game is a real treat.

      Coziest game? Cozy game...

       

      Huh. I don't know. I never thought about that...

      I play Silent Hunter 3 at full realism because I'm just that much of a badass.

       

      Now if you'll excuse me I need to go get depth charged by a destroyer for 45 minutes because I missed my torpedoes by a country mile.

      Ski teams get issued amphetamines, right?

       

      Is there an achievement for getting a killing spree while ODing on them? 

    4. General DeGroot

      General DeGroot

      Maybe. There's plans to do somewhat-randomly generated storage caches that can give you an upper hand- everything else is at the world's mercy
      The idea is that easy mode is as a Finn, hard mode is a Russian, extremely dead mode is as an American

  24. the Mad Max video game with eurobeat puts terrible images in my head
    "My name is Max-kun, and this is my first day at Australian Wasteland High School!"

      DID SOMEONE SAY "EUROBEAT"?

      All these status updates about death are really starting to bum me out.
