#1432008 What games are you playing now?

Posted by Jace on Yesterday, 10:12 PM

Okay sorry I keep going on about Monster World IV for Sega Megadrive but it's really grabbing me for some reason! I had a realization tonight that a lot of my "frustrations" with it are just me being sort of a spoiled elder Millennial. Like, I keep getting lost in these labyrinths, but that's just because I'm not doing what you would do in "the old days": keep detailed pen-and-paper notes or maybe even draw an annotated map. That would have just been a given in 1994 but I've been playing this game for over a week and the notion just occurred to me tonight. At this point I'm still just going to keep using walkthroughs but, maybe soon I'll find another old hidden gem to get into and whip out a notebook and the finest cheap consumer-grade ballpoint pen in all the land, the Pilot G-2 .7mm

I don't know whether or not anyone else here grew up with NASCAR-obsessed parents and neighbors, but this guy was a pretty huge deal.

I never ever would have figured out Blast Away the Wall in Whomp Fortress on my own.

#1431930 Donald Trump Is Your New President.

One of the most disorienting/dissociating things in the current political conversation is that all the realest, most level-headed-yet-aware takes and information dissemination comes not from any politician, but from people with twitter and IG handles like "goo gaga dick slut" and "thicc titty boi 420". The actual politicians are silent but we've got Possums R My Daddy over here telling it like it is.

#1431809 The Shizz PLANTS thread!

Posted by Jace on 21 September 2020 - 08:51 PM

Oof, how are you all posting pictures? I had a whole post made up showing my raspberry bushes, garden boxes, and grapevines, but when I went to post it,it was like "you don't have permission to post extensions." I wanted to share, but I'm technologically challenged.

I upload pics to imgur and right-click-open the pic in a new tab, then copy the URL of that tab (ending in .jpg or .png or whatever) into the pic uploading thingamajig here on the ol' BBS. It's less convoluted than that sounds but I would still like there to be a better way. Such is our mid-2000s internet burden.

edit: oh whoops yeah basically what newt said

Still slowly plugging away at Monster World IV for Sega Megadrive. Goddamn this is pretty tough! The boss fights are sort of crazy and it's also got some weird-but-necessary stuff required just for progressing along that I never ever would have figured out without a walkthrough, like damn near CV2 territory. But, luckily we do live in the age of comprehensive walkthroughs for nearly every console game ever so I'm just sort of along for the ride aesthetically.

#1431762 Movies

Posted by Jace on 21 September 2020 - 01:26 AM

Watched JCVD's Cyborg for the first time last night. It was definitely one of the more low-rent/budget JCVD movies, but definitely not the worst or most boring in my opinion. The main villain really reminded me of Big Destiny from Adventure Time so I thought was cool, and also, as user Smeg alluded to in mig's thread about his JCVD stream night, the primary character names in this movie are ridiculous and totally relevant to the interests of TheShizz:
 
- Gibson Rickenbacker
- Fender Tremolo
- Marshall Strat
- Furman Vox
- Pearl Prophet
- Nady Simmons

holy shit

If the only way you feel you can contribute is by donating money to stuff, then at least give it to the people who are directly affected by the consequences of what's happening and not some politician.

 

You can do both (i.e. political campaigns and non-political causes). I threw some bucks at a handful of campaigns yesterday. First time I've ever done that, and probably not something I'm going to do regularly. On the other hand, I have ongoing donations setup towards real charities that I care about.

 

 

^this. Unfortunately I feel like, in the immediate, if we don't have hope in the Senate then we have no hope. That doesn't disclude engaging with local affairs and various other direct-action organizations.

This was amazing though.

Damn I couldn't even watch a whole third of it. When the focus group leader asks everyone to describe what they like about Trump and the first guy just goes, "I like money," I was like, holy fuck I can't handle full-power on the "Idiocracy is here" volume knob.

the singer from DISCORDANCE AXIS yells FUCK POWERVIOLENCE


Yeah...I definitely got the impression that he said this for some extra-musical reason but it still made me LOL regardless.

I watched that and another doc on YouTube over the summer, this long one about Cannibal Corpse. I don't (or, well, didn't) know anything about Cannibal Corpse and had never really listened to them because the stabby-horror lyrics are a huge turnoff for me, but even from that distance I found this behind-the-scenes look at their story and trajectory to be super interesting. Recommended if you like music docs, even if you don't care about CC at all (I didn't):
