  1. Conan Exiles anyone?

    No? Ok. Just thought I'd check. But if by chance you do fancy yourself some low-tech fantasy survival and own this game, maybe with an interest in PVP-RP servers, you should add me because I like that too and need some buddies to play it with. Buddies are nice to have, ya know?
  2. E3 2016

    I haven't been paying too muc attention to it this year honestly, but nothing really sticks out as interesting. I watched the Bethesda section and it almost made me want to get Fallout 4. Almost. Dishonored 2 looks like fun, but I haven't even started Dishonored 1 yet. Not hyped at all for it, but it will probably end up on my wishlist. Oh, and Mafia 3 actually looked pretty neat, but I'm not really hyped for that either. There's again the issue of having Mafia 2 and not having touched it yet. VR stuff makes me kinda sad. I'll be one of the last people in the world not living in a 3rd world country to be able to get into it because my money situation is... less than perfect, to say the least. On the plus side though, by then it won't be as expensive to get into and some baller games will be out so I'll actually want to use the thing regularly.
  3. I like how, despite not reading what is not a very long post to begin with, you took the time to post that useless gif to try to seem cool. Good job. *slow clap* Not sure what I did to make you feel like you need to be rude to me, but ok. You have fun with that. Whatever makes you feel better about yourself.
  4. ATTENTION: All furry cat owners!

  5. First question is very situational for me and missing the answer I wanted to go with, but since "avoid" is closest I went with that. What did they do that makes me not like them? If they're being an outright dick to me or someone I care about I'm probably gonna report them for that, but I'm not gonna go around reporting every little thing they did wrong because that's stupid. If they just post with an attitude I generally don't care for I'll simply ignore them. 2 is also missing a key answer some people here have very much opted for: post on the forums bitching about it. 3 is also missing the answer I would have gone with, so I just picked "avoid the furrums" since it's pretty close. I probably would just lurk, only post when I saw something super worthwhile to respond to. Some of the threads here can be downright depressing and this place doesn't offer me anything more than something to waste time on when I have nothing else to do, so there's no reason to try to force myself to post when I don't want to. Despite how I've thought about doing it, I refuse to allow myself to rant at a bunch of people I don't know, because then have to worry about how much I'm being judged for it. Worse yet, I don't want to be pitied.
  6. Beatings

    Yup. I don't much like talking about my deeper personal experiences with people I don't know well and trust not to judge me, so I won't go into too much detail, but yeah... At least in my case the abuse didn't go on my entire childhood, but I definitely felt a lot of the things you describe in your post and those emotions still pop up in me every so often, though I try not to let them.
  7. Skeery games?

    There's a thread I saw that was kinda old and didn't get many replies and I didn't get to respond to it (thought I remembered posting in one here, but I guess not), not sure if I should bump it or make a new one... Opted for a new one. If ze mods don't like, ye can lock. :3 So. Horror games. I'm insanely picky when it comes to anything horror related, including movies and TV shows. They have to be well thought out and not just jump-scare/gore-filled types. Those make me yawn. I need psychological and unpredictable scares and if a game takes forever to bring that skeery feel, I get bored of it very quickly. The first Penumbra is an example of "took too long", and when it did finally show me a skeery, it wasn't skeery at all, and then it went back to being super boring. Such games can also be ruined for me if solutions to puzzles are very hard to find. Example of such a game is Knock Knock. Surprisingly a very creepy game, but I'm stuck and can't figure it out, am not sure where I am in the game to look up a solution, so now it's just become a frustrating experience and has lost the creep factor. Monstrum is another example of "too frustrating". It's extremely difficult to get into because the difficulty is insane, you basically have to play it for 50 hours just to get decent enough at it to start winning. It started out being pretty creepy, but after so many deaths in such a short time span (I only have 83 minutes played on it apparently) and not being able to get anywhere near done with the objectives to win, it just turned into something too frustrating to play anymore. I might try refunding it, but I've had it so long I dunno if I can now. The only game I've said "nope" to and legit gotten scared was Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Seems like people either loved it or hated it, and I would bet money that the people who call it "boring" are the types that don't actually play it how it's intended to be played: in the dark, no TV or music playing, all alone and no guides to help you. If you let yourself get immersed, how can it not scare you? The puzzles were just the right difficulty for me to not lose immersion over something hard to solve, with the exception of one that I had to look up and it turned out I just missed something silly. One of my all-time favorites is The Cat Lady, probably my favorite actually tied with Amnesia: TDD. It's not very scary tbh, just kinda creepy, but the story... oh that story. I love it. Another really fun one is Darkwood. It's kind of a top-down survival horror that is very simplistic in style, has a story, and is quite hard but rewarding once you get used to how to not die. They've made a lot of changes to it since I last played it so maybe some things have gone south, but I would still highly recommend that you check it out if you like the horror genre. Anna was ok. It had a lot of hype (asm uch as you can in this genre), but I don;t feel it lived up to that. It was only creepy the first couple hours really and then little bits in between, otherwise meh, and I didn't really get into the story. Mannequins yo... Nuff said, but after a while the random encounters with them become expected and dull. FEAR 1 and so far FEAR 2 are not scary in the least (just a tad creepy is all), but for some reason FEAR 1 stuck with me loooong after playing. I still feel drawn to it. It might be because I forced myself to play it and finish it in a couple days, but when I did finish it I felt almost sad, like I was losing a part of me. Very odd, never had that feeling about a game before and there's plenty of games that I've played for days straight and for more hours. If I had a PS4 I really would like to play Until Dawn. I watched a streamer I follow play it and it looked creepy, not really scary, but entertaining nonetheless. If you have a PS4, check that one out if you haven't already. My most recent game of the genre is Dead by Daylight. I wouldn't call it scary, just a little creepy, but it would be hella fun to play in a group as the survivors. It gets intense for sure. A game I would like to check out some time is called Layers of Fear. I watched a gameplay video of that when I first saw it on Steam and it looked like it had the potential to be very Amnesia-like in the sense that you need to get immersed to get scared, and once you do, it's good skeery fun. I wasn't entirely sold on it at that point and I have a ton of other games I need to get through, so I dunno if I'll ever be getting it. I have some other ones I haven't gotten to try yet, would like to soon though.

    That's actually the part where I got too frustrated with the video I was watching to continue, plus I didn't want to completely spoil that bit for myself since I wanna see if my hunch was correct (seems pretty obvious, but he didn't get it). It's called the Liar's Room, yet he believed both of the people who said "the one in this color is telling the truth". After he tried the 2nd one saying that I quit...
  9. How the fuck do you stop being tired irl

    Mountain Dew Kickstart does it for me. I'm ruining my body by staying up all day after I get home from a night shift at work, but if I didn't then I'd sleep until like 10pm and miss everything (cuz when I let my body sleep without an alarm on, I sleep 12-14 hours easily), so I kinda have to do just stay up. Once the Kickstart has settled in and I've got myself playing a game, plus one more KS when I eat lunch, I'm wide awake all day until after midnight usually. Some days, like today, I really feel the exhaustion slapping me in the face. I half-napped at work and so I wasn't tired enough to go to bed until almost noon. I woke up once while sleeping, not sure what time, then just a bit ago woke up for good and it was like my eyes and stomach wanted to explode from my body. Oh, and my bladder too, but that was easily remedied. Only just now my eyes and stomach are relaxing. Thing is, I slept just fine too. I even dreamed for once!
  10. Oversharing

    I'm definitely an over-sharer once I trust a person (I've directly been told so a... few... times). Otherwise, I under-share or don't share at all.
  11. Things that you hate! v2

    I really, really detest those Seventh Generation soap commercials. Really. The gal in them is extremely annoying. She's got one of those pudgy faces that most people would probably find cute, but because her eyes are seem expressionless her entire face is ruined and is just annoying. Not only that, but her voice is super irritating, like she's trying really hard to be enticing or some shit. Then she does this "angel's giggle" thing which makes me want to throw something at the TV just to make it stop. Oh, and of course this commercial is on at least every other commercial break.
  12. i cried at work today

    Pretty much the same deal here. Not much else we can do but try our best to press on though, eh?
  13. Ib

    Yeh, I just wanted to see what the game was like really quick, so I picked the first video that came up. =p I only watched it as long as I did (maybe 15 minutes worth) because it took a while for anything to really happen in-game that told me for sure yay or nay.
  14. Ib

    I just watched some guy play it and he was really stupid, took forever to figure out really basic puzzles... So at least I know for sure the puzzles aren't hard, which would be a turnoff. I tend to avoid these types of games usually just because they're more puzzle focused and aren't atmospheric/creepy. This one was a little creepy looking, and since it's freeware I might try it out some time just to see.
  15. i cried at work today

    Yup. It's a tough situation to be in. Good friends though, if you have them, can be a good source of stress relief. I struggle with allowing myself to rant at people because I don't want to upset or hurt them, would rather let myself stay miserable than risk it, and my venting has made friends give up on me before. Some people have told me that means they weren't really friends to begin with, but I dunno what a real friend is then I guess. Point is, maybe you can try to find someone that will let you talk or discuss this stuff with you that understands - like these forums! Some of us peeps on here that have been through similar might not mind if you bug 'em sometimes. Helping people makes me feel useful, so I'm here if I can be of service.
