Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Just yesterday, the tyrannical and despotic robot-man known only to us as "jacobkosh" declared a temporary shutdown of the [chat] thread, presumably for his own nefarious ends.

This thread is about those precious minutes we sacrificed in order to keep our glorious institution.

    I can't believe how many otherwise intelligent and respectable people I know who consume Emergen-C and Airborne as if there were an iota of evidence to suggest that it actually does anything.

    System Shock 1 is fiddly.

    Have you tried the fan-made System Shock Portable? It runs on Windows XP.

    That's the one I'm using. It's still weird playing a first person game without WASD.

    Lots of exploring needed in this game.

    I don't know why but I really like the game's intro. It might be because it reminds me of all the big promises from the gaming industry in 1995. FMVs! Voice acting! CD-quality music!

    ... I want to buy a 3DO now. How did that glorious system ever fail?

    moot from 4chan made a word filter that changed every mention of the word "otaku" on the site to "weeaboo"

    That's how it started

    If I remember correctly some forum got sick of the term "wapanese" and set their auto filter to replace it with weeaboo, as inspired by that strip.

    Don't get me wrong; I love Red Bull. It is one of my vices. But I can't imagine enjoying drinking 20 oz of the stuff, much less shotgunning it. And that's to say nothing of the sucralose version D:

    Important grammatical note:

    I know it is common usage around here so I hardly blame Eddy for having picked it up, but the term for the chat thread is really "chat thread" or "the D&D chat thread" or something similar, not [chat]. The brackets are just to make it stand out on the front page.

    this mainly comes into play when corresponding with non-D&D mods, who are, I assure you, very much not interested in hearing about "[chat]"

    just, you know, file this information away somewhere for future reference.

    [Chat] has a holistic Being above and beyond that of 'chat' or even 'the chat thread'.
