Last night the Bros played Stayin' Alive and it was terrible. Simply awful. It's like "Who's Your Daddy?" in that you have a team of senior citizens in a nursing home trying to kill themselves and a team of nurses trying to prevent that from happening. The graphics are amateur, the movement and controls are poorly done and the game is buggy where everyone in the first round was getting stuck in place. There's also no sense of balance between the death implements and life saving implements. There was a bizarre "feature" where a 1980s era speech synthesizer would speak whatever someone typed in the chat box but even that was garbage; it would cut itself off any time someone else typed something and get stuck in infinite loops. That's like adding an iced tea brewer to your television which also sometimes sets the TV on fire. When we started the game, we had unbalanced teams so the game helpfully added a bot -- on both sides. The game is early access but frankly shouldn't be sold at all right now because it's more of a buggy tech demo than a playable beta build. Before the second round was concluded we were at risk of suicide ourselves if we kept playing this trash game and abandoned it. I don't see us ever going back.
Tonight we're playing DEFCON which was predestined when I kept trying to make the chat box say "Shall we play a game?" and Goose would interrupt it with "Whale cum".

Well, if this non-sense keeps up w/ ISP's turning this into cable - charging arms, foots, legs, and whatnot - for extra data transfers by the GB/TB/whatever or we need to pay for pricey unlimited data cap plans - we PC gamers might need retail to actually start putting games discs again...
Of course, PC would need to find a format everybody will freakin' support, of course...
We should all buy up TDK stock in anticipation of the surge in DVD media production/value.

A couple of years ago I made big resolution to stop buying games when I hit the 2,000 mark. I think I even made a blog post on here about it and made a big deal about. I was super serious about it too. I wanted to stop the hoarding and focus on gaming and my backlog. Today I sit at 3,333. And this is with me not buying most bundles outside of Humble Monthly. It's been well over a year since I bought a Groupees bundle, almost a year since I bought and IG bundle, and I skip most Humbles and Bundlestars.
So what happened? I found the bros. No, this isn't another self-promotion. Around the time I was getting close to hitting 2,000, we started hosting bro events and playing games every week. At first it was once a week, and then twice, and nowadays sometimes I can play with the bros every single day of the week. I reached a "dilemma" of either keeping to my resolution of stopping at 2,000 or buying some bundle trash game because it was scheduled next week and I realized it was silly to try to stick to some arbitrary limit if I was enjoying goofing off and actually playing games with people.
Now, the bros haven't played 1,333 games since then so there's some fakeybroing and bundle fodder thrown in the mix there, but the point is I started enjoying playing my games and stopped worrying about
the bomb my game count. That's not to say setting limits or resolutions is bad. Even now, I try to tell myself to slow down my game hoarding since I don't have the time to get to everything. My point is that sometimes you reach your "goal" in unexpected ways.
I hope everyone enjoys playing their games or collecting them or whatever you do in 2018.

also from history.com "December 21, 2012: a prophetic date delivered in stone by the ancient Maya. Revered by scientists for their extremely accurate calendars, the Maya are also known for their mysterious ability to predict unsettling events so many are taking the December date seriously. On this date a rare galactic alignment will take place and coincidentally, as the alignment happens, our sun will be entering its most violent solar storm cycle. And, all of this comes at a time when scientists believe Earth's magnetic defense shield, which protects us from dangerous solar radiation, may be compromised. Our planet may become paralyzed. People are heeding the warning and getting prepared, including a group of everyday Americans learning how to fend for themselves and live off the grid.". Seems like #fakenews to me

To clarify it was an open box, they had it at $339, I asked them if they still dropped it 10% down like they used to, they gave it to me for $299.99 so cant complain
