  1. This is the nature of the Amazon-era publishing world, sadly (sadly for me, at least). The general rule for aspiring professional authors nowadays is that, outside of one or two genres, author names no longer sell books the way they used to, but series names still can. So instead of writing something self-contained, genre authors who want an income from their writing are encouraged to swing for an extended series until they hit something which people will buy into continuously, then ride it as long as possible. It's bad for the narrative art in the same way as the standard TV serie
  2. It's been twenty years or whatever but finally I can honestly say I liked something about SFII better than the equivalent SFIII feature.
  3. "There's no way he'll do it again." Me losing to meaty UOH > super ten times in a row last time I played this.
  4. Leaving aside that I don't understand how you got upvotes earlier for listing multiple songs in a "pick one song" thread, I approve of editing Hail To The Thief. Here's the track list for my "Hail, Thief" CD which I pretty much always listen to in place of the proper album: 1. Sit down. Stand up 2. Sail to the moon 3. Where I end and you begin 4. The gloaming 5. I Will (Los Angeles version) 6. There, there 7. Paperbag writer 8. Myxomatosis 9. Scatterbrain 10. A wolf at the door 11. Where bluebirds fly (Tracks 5, 7 and 1
  5. yaaaaaas I tried to play this game against strangers tonight, found one person, and convinced them (using the language of divekicks) to ragequit on me in game three. Still got the moves! Now I'm alone.

    Damn. I suck at this.
  7. That lame trap against the Boxer.
  8. I actually pretty much wasn't for about two years, then I foolishly took a new job which requires me to use social media and am currently struggling to avoid that leaking into my personal life. Check my posting history from a couple of months ago, though. As much as I miss people here when I'm not here (this is my favourite community on the internet and I'm sure you'll have fun here), I'll be gone again soon. I can live better without this thing which, as exciting as it was when it began, now exists to manufacture compulsions*, flatter moronic consumer behaviour**, and diminish the
  9. The less time I spend on the Internet, the less I struggle with these urges. The internet works dark magics of desire to make you want stuff you don't even actually want that much.

    FOOTSIES is now out on Steam. Pros: - fun game which focuses on the most fundamental of fighting game fundamentals - it's by that hifight person who seems to be responsible for every fighting game tweet I ever read Cons: - it costs £2.89 and will probably last you about as long as that cup of coffee - not even I bought it (yet) But if any of you want to give it a go then I'll consider donating half my online poker fortune to the cause. Come find me on Steam.

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/1344740/FOOTSIES_Rollback_Edition/ No I didn't check to see if this was mentioned elsewhere. Due for release on 1st October. This is a long-available free local multiplayer PC game, which is getting rollback netcode for online multiplayer as a Steam release. Come see me in FOOTSIES, or just post your footsies memes below. First to post a Mike Ross gif gets read and appropriately whiff-punished. Unless I do it first because I'm the best.
  14. It's been two and a half years since I played against a human in this game; in that time I've forgotten footsies, anti-airs, matchups, self-control, and even which characters I know how to play, but despite my brain's forgetfulness there are apparently moments when my hands surprise me by just doing things without letting my brain interfere in the process. This whole ten second sequence occured with my brain off.
