"Bought" the asteroid shuttle for some extra dosh, spent literally all of the station budget on a supermatter shard.

Threw the same person into it 3 times because throwing people into supermatter of any kind is very fun.

Died because I deep fried my sunglasses so when a pepperspray bomb went off in the brig (which was exposed to space) I had no eye protection and got permanently stunned there until I died.

Very sad.

Surprisingly was not vored.

I actually liked the first season. Remember when it was hand drawn?

Looks so different now. Quite awful.

similar to verification I currently use a decade old emachine except it's one of these awful things:

model EL1352 if you really want to look it up.

it might've done nice things when my parents first got it but now the only good modern thing it still has going for it is that it runs.

I had a forgettable but decent laptop a few years ago but the battery on it died and we didn't have a replacement so it got stuck on the charger 24/7 and then the computer itself died and here we are today with the stuffty family emachine.

I posted a topic similar to this like ages ago and I'll throw in the same thing I shilled then as I did now

might not be to anyone's taste here but I still think they're high quality

1) Bayonetta

the boss music. all of them. (3 separate links) it's eargasmic. please forgive me for using that term but I can think of no word closer. It's funny considering I haven't played bayonetta at all but that doesn't change the fact its soundtrack is amazing.

2) Evil Dead: Fistful of Boomstick

I dont care if you dont like evil dead or you've never heard of the game or the fact the game is old as balls or it's mediocre

the soundtrack was really well done.

Just a sample, the Colonial Dearborn level's combat music which was perfectly suspenseful and fit the theme of the level incredibly well, the first boss fight of the game which while the song seems short it's actually looped flawlessly ingame to great effect, and the final boss theme which while closely resembling the other boss themes feels a lot more doom-and-gloom but in a good way considering its the final boss. I might not have played the game much (I watched my dad play when I was a kid and it still scared me) but the soundtrack has really stuck with me.

those were the two most noteworthy ones I wanted to touch on but I'm also really fond of Halo 3: ODST's soundtrack, Persona 3 and 4, all the modern Fire Emblem games (3 separate links), and just for good measure I'll say Bravely Default.

I could list a lot more but this is probably enough for the purposes of this thread.

Didn't eMachines stop existing like 5 years ago?

This computer is over half my age.

That should answer your question.

I tried playing el dorito but it cant run even on minimum settings on this stuff emachine. I wont ever get my halo fix, it seems.

I did try custom edition for a while though but most of the servers with all the cool maps are dead so it just wasn't worth it.

Clearly the major companies were doing fine before microtransactions became a craze. The game is retailing 60 dollars at launch. This is legitimately worse than the horse armor DLC stuffstorm for oblivion way back ago because sure You Can Beat The Game Without Buying It but not only is it locking stuff behind a paywall when I already dropped 60 bucks on the game but I'm having to shill out cash repeatedly if I want to play the game to its full extent, which shouldn't NEED to happen for a 60 loving dollar game. I was pissed about this happening in dead space 3 way long ago and I'm pissed about it now.

Will they learn and stop doing it? no. I'm not here to try and convince anyone to stop doing it because they wont give a stuff. they want your money. they are going to get your money. and your point about it being used to fund the games, I genuinely believe they're just going to pocket it. that's just my nihilistic outlook but take it as you will.

I mean hell, you think this is a new issue?

Go look at the previous game, Shadow of Mordor, take a look at its DLC.

should look somewhat similar to this:

Yeah, bits of actual DLC content you'd expect from a game but also spattered about loving "runes" for a dollar a piece that have an actual ingame effect.

EDIT: let me try to put into perspective how bullstuff this is. for the same price of all 5 "runes", at 5 dollars, you could purchase a single Fallout: New Vegas DLC right now on steam with no sale going on and receive more than 100x the content. Quote me on that. Sure, the game is older and the DLC prices have gone down since their original prices I believe, but you have to understand my point. you're getting gouged for such a stupidly small (but still potentially impactful!) ingame thingymabob

"oh but you dont need to buy them to beat the game!"

forget you, that mentality.

notice how some of the runes have the exact same release date as the game? you'd be paying 40-60 bucks (forget its launch price), and there'd still be ingame content YOU CANNOT HAVE because of money grubbing tactics like they're doing now. I don't agree with this practice. I don't agree that you're now literally paying real money for content you don't even know for sure what you're receiving. This lootbox craze is disgusting.

This is all in respect to games you're already paying out the ass for. Hell, in a free to play game, I perfectly understand. I'd even reasonably defend this practice in cheaper games that are primarily multiplayer based because you can expect to be 100% of the lootbox contents to just be cosmetics that you can decorate your gun/sword/etc. with and also support the developer. (don't get me started on halo 5's implementation of this. even more disgusting.)

This is not the same scenario. I'll defend to the death microtransactions/release DLC for cosmetic content but if I'm having genuine, even small, gameplay aspects locked behind paywalls that aren't legitimate, meaningful DLC content, then it's just terrible, not worth your money, not worth my money, and all in all I just hate it.

rant over

Pah's a great guy. I don't talk with him a lot but I wish him a very happy birthday today.
