@  BlackMax : (21 November 2017 - 04:53 PM)

Sweet!

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2017 - 08:00 AM)

Okay, that's freaky good.

@  Locoman : (20 November 2017 - 11:02 PM)

Today I learned that the credits theme from Avatar syncs up alarmingly well with the theme from Beast Wars.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:24 PM)

We badly want to move and completely lack the money to do so. Sigh.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:23 PM)

Which, the opposite side of one bathroom wall is the bedroom. The other wall has all my Transformers on the other side. And it was so bad the other day it actually stunk up the laundry room below the bathroom.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:21 PM)

And the smell is leaking through the bathroom. I'm guessing the vents are connected.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

Turns out they smoke. A lot. I know this because it's now cold outside and they're closing their windows.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

So, I moved to a duplex this summer. And I noticed my neighbor's kept their windows open all the time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 November 2017 - 06:58 PM)

The Netherlands fights the sea every day.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2017 - 02:32 PM)

It's a Spider's Game over there.

@  Boomhauer : (20 November 2017 - 09:08 AM)

The best moment of the Emu War is when they brought machine guns to shoot at large groups of birds and at no point a single person in the room brought up "wait but emus are fast won't they just dodge and-"

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2017 - 04:53 AM)

Yeah yeah, giant spiders. Look up the Great Emu War of the 1920s for instances of Australia trying to defeat it's wildlife and failing miserably.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 November 2017 - 03:41 AM)

Australia is still fighting their war on Giant Spiders.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2017 - 01:58 AM)

The queue is pretty long, and I don't think Australia is going anywhere any time soon.

@  Locoman : (19 November 2017 - 10:59 PM)

Welcome to the "political crisis" queue, here's your ticket.

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

Complicated lengthy coalition talks just failed.

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

Oh boy. Germany is in a political crisis.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 November 2017 - 01:25 PM)

I could handle going back to not existing. x.x;

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2017 - 01:14 PM)

Life is the brief recess we get from not existing before going back to not existing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 November 2017 - 01:10 PM)

Nah.. Life is simply the precursor to death.

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2017 - 12:41 PM)

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 November 2017 - 08:37 AM)

You won't be at school or work anymore... so mitigated success.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2017 - 05:21 PM)

Just don't try to plug yourself into an outlet. It won't end well.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2017 - 04:57 PM)

Trying to stay awake at work or school is a lot like using your controller when it's on low battery

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

If you're used to doing it with tabs, that makes sense. It doesn't feel weird for me.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Also, it just feels weird if switching between webpages uses the same actions as switching between programs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:21 AM)

I switch between different things on the browser and click on various plugins and stuff far more often than switching from program to program.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:19 AM)

Yeah I'm mostly just venting from frustration rather than trying to convince anyone, though @NotVeryNightly I will point out that the windows for the other programs I'm running are at the bottom of the screen as well.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:09 AM)

Tabs are on the top, near the address bar, browser tools, plugins and whatnot so the cursor will be there frequently anyway. Switching windows would require going down the screen.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 10:03 AM)

I mean, you do you. No bigs. You've just got a fairly unique stance that surprised me.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I haven't seen words on the bottom bar of the screen since XP.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:13 AM)

All of which is put on the point that I don't care if people want to use tabs, I just want the option to not have them present for me on my browser.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:12 AM)

@Shrug- A quick glance at the bottom of the screen shows me what is open and where. Load times are basically so trivial that the load indicator on a tab is something I didn't notice until you mentioned it. The "which instance is playing noise" is a fair point but has basically only really been approaching meaningful for me maybe twice in all the time tabs have existed.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:07 AM)

@NotveryKnightly- I have never encountered a situation where that is true, especially given that tabs are on the other side of the screen to the other things I'm switching through.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:06 AM)

@ Nevermore- The windows at the bottom have the names of the websites on them, presuming you don't collapse them.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:08 AM)

Geez, this is reminding me of the awful pre-tab days.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

I can look at the tab to see if it hasn't finished loading yet. Now you can see which tab is playing sound, so no need to hunt through windows to find a video ad that started playing.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And a quick glance lets me know whats open and where. No clicking multiple windows hunting for something. No waiting for some window preview to pop up (which wasn't available when tabs first started.)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Switching between tabs is way quicker than between windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:09 AM)

It's like having a clear structore with sub-directores, instead of just having all files on your computer stored in one giant directory.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:08 AM)

This way, I can switch between windows and then select the tab, instead of always trying to remember which window is for which website.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:07 AM)

I find one browser window with multiple tabs a lot easier to handle alongside other windows than multiple browser windows alongside other windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

I find multiple tabs a lot more comfortable than multiple windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

erm... no?

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 03:26 AM)

On mobile devices and whatever I understand why tabs would be a thing, but on a full desktop browser it's just- "Hey, here's a thing that's kind of like opening a new window, but objectively worse in every practical way"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 November 2017 - 01:41 AM)

Someone remind me again: which versions of the CW Hot Spot mold did not suffer from bad hip ratcheting?

@  BlackMax : (16 November 2017 - 06:33 PM)

Holy crap I just pushed the F11 key for the first time on a keyboard since about 1994.

@  Shrug : (16 November 2017 - 01:11 PM)

tabs being wretched bs is definitely an opinion I've never seen before

@  RC85747 : (16 November 2017 - 08:25 AM)

Vivaldi lets you hide the tab bar

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 07:45 AM)

Yeah but that gets rid of everything else as well.

First off, can a mod please close or lock the previous two polls?

 

----

 

Alright, Tonight around 7pm will be my stream of Sonic Generations, and will run for about 3 hours.

Sunday will be Transformers: War For Cybertron, also starting around 7pm and I'm hoping to at least beat the Decepticon Campaign.

Tuesday's midday stream will be Little Inferno. Since it is a short game I should be able to do it all in one sitting.

Next Friday, I am aiming to beat the rest of War for Cybertron's single player campaign. I'll get back to Sonic Generations in September since its a longer game.

Next Sunday will be of course whatever my followers vote for.

-----

Now for the games for next Sunday's vote:

Since I get comments about 'not knowing some/all of the games' I've decided to provide links for each game, so that if you don't have a clear favorite for me to play you can vote for whatever you think looks the most interesting.

Fallout New Vegas – all DLC - http://store.steampo...ck/app/2028016/
Life Is Strange - Episode 1- http://store.steampo...eck/app/319630/
Citizens of Earth - http://store.steampo...com/app/258910/
Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition - http://store.steampo...eck/app/211420/
The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition - http://store.steampo....com/app/32360/
X-Com: Enemy Unknown - http://store.steampo...eck/app/200510/
Jade Empire - http://store.steampo...d.com/app/7110/
The Bard's Tale - http://store.steampo....com/app/41900/
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 - http://store.steampo...com/app/208580/
L. A. Noire - http://store.steampo...eck/app/110800/

----

Also before anyone asks: Why KOTOR2? Because it was recently and massively updated in Steam, including Steam Workshop options, so this will have mods such as cut content and better graphics. As I've only played the original sloppy and rushed retail version, this will be something new and unique for me as this will be a play-through of the hopefully superior version of the game. Also maybe potentially raising awareness that its gotten these updates.

This thing just will not let me comment.

 

This boss looks worse than Biolizard. Omochao is annoying but for this boss ii can see why it might be needed.

 

ooh, I like this level. (Speed Highway)

 

That frigging GUN truck.   :D

 

Sonic Heroes was boring as heck.

 

I love how that Sonic 06 level trolls the player. They knew everyone wanted to get that level over with and forget that game happened.

I don't know how many of these I could make it to. Sunday night is usually family night. But since you seem to be recording the streams...an eventual Mass Effect stream might be kinda cool...1,2 or 3.

I'm hopelessly addicted to that darn thing!
How about we start with your complete and total surrender?

I think atm I only have ME2 on my computer, and I don't yet know how to stream my PS3. They're possibility but probably a 'next year' thing.

 

Sunday is my 'big stream', as Saturday too friends have obligations then. Tomorrow I'll be doing Little Inferno, either mid day or evening, not sure yet. Then Friday night I'll be doing the rest of WFC Single player campaign. As mentioned in a previous thread, Next month is more 'pot luck' with just random games I wanna play, October is Halloween Theme month, November is Fallout Month (First week is gonna be Tactics, as I've never played it, and the rest is going to be FO4) December... not sure, possibly more FO4 alternated with potential Christmas-y/wintery games. (Might be doing Saints Row 4's Christmas DLC as one of the Shorter games, and if I get it, probably Visceral Clean Up Santa's Workshop.)

These polls seem to get diminishing returns... -_-

 

Anyway, based on what few votes I did get, Monkey Island is the winner.

 

So the new schedule will be:

 

8/28: WFC - Autobot Campagin

8/30: Secret of Monkey Island

9/1:  Sonic Generations

9/4: Life is Strange - Episode 1

Yeah, from here on out, I'm gonna reduce things to 5 choices. See if that helps things any.

 

I'm thinking next month is gonna be more or less 'point and click adventure month' somewhat starting with Monkey Island and Fridays being Life if Strange. Sundays will still be fans choice, and Tuesdays will be mostly some quirky games since Little Inferno went over well, and most of them are PnCA types like Monkey Island.

 

October I have something special with my first crossover, which will be hosted on their stream for several reasons and be exclusively on Saturdays, so October I'll be doing 4 streams a week.
