I somewhat agree. One might be able to argue that it could be worse psychologically too. In that I mean that the participants still know that they are on earth, so why do I need to wait 6 minutes (guessing at a time delta here...) to get a response from 'earth' when I know that it shouldn't take that long. It could make a play on the frustration aspect of human psychology. If I were in space, I would just know that it's a limitation of radio waves being limited to the speed of light. On earth, it's just make believe. Just playing devil's advocate here.

I agree with all of that. I'm a smoker. If I go on a transatlantic flight, I not once 'need' to have a cig or a craving, because I know that it just cannot, in anyway happen. The second you get to the terminal is a different matter tho....

Religion of peace? Or religion of PIECES.

I find the latter appears to be true more often than not. They enjoy being pieces.

You stun me. I'm normally a very level headed bloke but: fuck you. I hope you or your loved ones never have to suffer the consequences of a terrorist attack. Fuck you.


Submission + - Have I lost my gaming mojo?

danabnormal writes: Increasingly I'm being frustrated in my attempts to find a game I want to play. In an effort to catchup, I've been using my bog standard Dell laptop to dig out treasures I have missed, such as American McGee's Alice, Grim Fandango and Syberia.

I don't often get the time to play games so I like to have the opportunity to dip in and out of a title without feeling like I'm loosing something by not playing it for periods. But when I find a title I like... that time gets made. Heavy Rain is the last game that gripped me, that truly engaged me and made me want to complete in a sitting. I'm tired of the GTA formulas, bored of CODs and don't have the reaction to think on my feet for AOEIII.

Is it about time I tossed in the controller and resigned myself to the fact that the games I want only come out once in a blue moon? Or have I just not found 'that' one great title that will open me up to a brand new genre? Lords of Ultima is going OK at the moment, is there anything of that ilk I've missed?

What are your thoughts? Do you stick to a genre or have you found that you're finding it harder as you get, um, more mature, to find something you want to play?

You are in a maze of UUCP connections, all alike.
