    Oh God, you're right. How many achievements did I pass up on by playing Fallout 3 on PC? And it still looked no better.

    :whistle: This is my least favorite life
    The one where I'm out of my mind
    The one where you're just out of reach
    The one where I stand and you fly

    I'm wandering in the shade
    And the rustle of fallen leaves
    A bird on the edge of a blade
    Lost now forever, my love, in a sweet memory

    Joker gives a long Killing Joke style monologue about his superiority to Batman and offers him a chance to join.

    Batman: "Nah." *Shoots Joker*

    *Meanwhile, at Star Labs in Metropolis*

    Nightwing: Batman's regained control of Gotham, so we're going to return. Barbara's been acting strangely.

    Barbara: Dick? What's the matter, "lover"? Don't you like my new look? *Hamill laugh*

    I am now remembering Cuddles the monkey, orange ventriloquists dummy of Keith Harris, and notorious hater of Orville the duck, Harris's other, more well known dummy. Orville was green, wore a nappy, and often opined that he wished he could fly, right up to the sky. The catchphrase of Cuddles was slightly more direct: "I hate that duck".

    I did the same thing. All the DLC, all the missions. I think the last two DLC were the best ones, one a fantastic continuation of the main story, and the other one a really good new area to explore.

    Apropos of nothing, something I really like about the first inFamous game:
    All throughout the first and second acts, Zeke is showing envy at your powers, and it's really hinting at a Lance Vance Dance type backstab. And yet, when the moment finally comes, it's portrayed sympathetically. Zeke succumbs in a moment of fear, desperation and weakness, and I think the game does a good job of showing his regretting it for the rest of the game.

    And something I don't like:
    The moral choice structure cheating so you cannot save Trish. If you wanted to write her out in either case, have her be disgusted you let those doctors die and finally break off contact with you.

    Something about the phrase "terrorist clickbait" makes me laugh very inappropriately.
    “It’s terrorist clickbait,” says Horgan. “And they know we’ll walk right into it, time and time again.”

    But while ISIS releases these videos with a mind to please its many followers, their horror-film approach could backfire with anyone they’re hoping to recruit.

    Arie Kruglanski, a psychology professor at the University of Maryland, College, Park, noted that ISIS’ punitive videos put the group on ideologically shaky ground among some Islamic militants. In a recent research project, Kruglanski says he examined the perceptions militants held of ISIS, al-Qaeda and Jemmah Islamiyah, a Southeast Asian terror group. While al-Qaeda was viewed as adhering to Islamic doctrine, those studied perceived ISIS to be powerful and cruel, but less devout Muslims.

    “The brutalities of ISIS could backfire and they could be perceived as espousing a flawed impure ideology that is contrary to the teachings of Islam,” Kruglanski tells Vocativ. “This is a potential weakness and should be used in counter-radicalization and in counter-messaging against them.”

    I played with randos most of the time, but I had one guy I'd play regularly with. Randos were never too bad. Sometimes one or two would drop and then you might as well quit, but more than once I got to level fifty with a group of total strangers. Did the coop campaign on the hardest difficulty mostly that way as well.

    Not with an AAA title.

    There was a cricket game once that reviewed so badly that the game was "cancelled" after it was already released.

    I enjoyed inFamous (really? That's how it's spelled?) tremendously, but yeah, when I played it through the second time, that part really really turned me off.

    I'm actually not sure if I even kept playing, I might have stopped there.

    I saw a custom Harry Potter setting where most spells basically required a spellcraft check.

    Like if I were to home brew a Harry Potter game, I just can't find myself believing I'd use d20 for it. It just seems like I'd be ripping a massive amount of guts out to make stuff work.
