#1199724 What are you playing at the moment?

Posted by Rybags on 06 February 2018 - 11:10 AM

Inside

 

The follow-up to Limbo by the same developers.  Like Limbo very arty but in a good way.

Complaints - it's just too easy.  With Limbo I used a walkthrough video for a couple of situations and some of the secret items which are pretty hard to find.  And for the almost totally dark secret area that you get access to once all the items are found.

 

With Inside it's blatantly obvious by the yellow cord that a secret area is nearby and although I've not done the alternate ending yet, it's not entirely hard to get to and only provides an alternate ending without any puzzle aside from entering the musical notes to open up the area.

The parts where you have to evade capture are very easy and I think I got through all but 1 or 2 on the first try.  Even the part where you're part of a zombie queue it's obvious what you have to do and you can be slow and slack on the mimicing and still get by.

 

Been through Limbo probably 4 or 5 times.  Up to about my 4th for Inside.




#1199679 After 17 years, it's time to look back...

Fallout - that was the one near Cronulla in 2003 wasn't it?  I was there with Chef and Dajabo.  That was the night of hot weather, howling winds through most of SE Aus.  That was the night of the Canberra bushfires.

While partying along, wondering if we'd suddenly have to go back or in fact just what we'd go back to.

 

Not a favourite moment but a memorable one that I'm thankful for, for reason to become apparent - early 2005 we arranged a camping trip, as it turned out we went to a national park near Bermagui (NSW south coast) for a night.  I travelled down in Tin Reaper's car and we met Lancer2K and Vanna there (I think that was all of us).

On the way home, I requested that Tinnie stop at a nursing home near Bateman's Bay where my grandparents were both staying.  My grandfather had a physical downturn and my grandmother had dementia and couldn't be left alone so went in with him.

While he stayed in the car for the 20 minutes or so I went in and saw my grandparents.  I didn't know at the time but that was the last time I ever saw my grandfather and I'm thankful for it.

Shouldn't there be a filename as part of that path after the nano command?

Looks to me like some sort of config or auto exec type of thing, probably an option of the system and likely not included in minimalist installs.

In 1983 they came in peace but it soon became obvious they had other intentions...

In 2018, they landed and started their colonization:

This thread desperately needs some input from Director.

One of the tragedies regarding the DeLorean was that the chosen engine was a joke and the car was outperformed by minivans.

This one has a Buick 3.8 twin turbo transplant, probably the engine that should have been used in the first place (same as Commodores used for 25 years).

Sadly the test run is cut short - the car had been sitting unused for months and the fuel lines had gummed up.

Pity... it'll probably be a 5 minute fix which you'll pay 30-60 minutes worth of labour for the privelage of.

Ask him for one what's the lack of any commonsense behind having a concealed userid prompt and no unique identifying info available which inevitably causes such clusterfucks in a corporate environment.

PMSL.  There's a porn star named "Leif Blowher".




#1199198 mygov seems to be down - at least in W.A.

Works here.  Gladly my browser remembers the userid that otherwise has absolutely no connection or resemblence to any personal detail of me, or serial number of any card I've ever carried.

One of the best Star Wars related documentaries I've seen - how Star Wars was saved in the edit.

Looks at how the initial preview screening was poorly received and details the changes and people that helped save the movie.

"Maximum brake and nothing else"

 

So, just hit the anchors and don't bother trying to steer around that cow that wandered onto the road?

By his logic we should have a new ADR...

 

All new vehicles to be fitted with single trailing shoe drum brakes on all 4 wheels.

Looks like most of us here will have a box seat for the total lunar eclipse at the end of the month.
