    Lookouts easily beats the snot out of that. When my IRL friends are talking to me about how much they have disliked the recent PA comics, then I know that something really got real.

    i don't think i've ever heard a proper chortle in person

    i'm not quite sure if i'd even be able to identify it

    just what constitutes a chortle as opposed to a robust snicker, for instance

    Well the drama was because PA was huge and seen as bagging on their lessers. When it was mainly just ripping on a crappy documentary. I forget who lead the micropayment charge or what shitty comic he even did, but the guy was a major douche at the start of webcomicry.

    So I've seen how badly some games perform on some systems. Like running really slow and shit. But I've never seen the likes of bad performance as when I tried the Arma 2 demo.

    Everything was covered in a blurry fog, some objects were solid colors, things were jumping around all over the place, the framerate was horrible.

    Never seen nuthin' like it, no siree.

    Someone asked me to repost my nightmarish vision of the end of the world, so here it is:
    I wrote:
    I'll do my best to describe what I saw in my dream last night. It was an incredibly fleeting glance, but I got a tremendous amount of history and intent from it.

    Imagine one of the walls from your room gone, replaced instead by a dark portal to a region of unknown space. Through the portal you see only the immense head and shoulders of a large, bald demon. Its skin white, its eyes like galaxies, its mouth locked in a permanent open grin revealing thousands of tiny, pointed teeth. As you look down the throat of the beast, you see the very essence of infinity itself.

    Everything in your room is slowly being pulled towards this gaping maw. By "everything" I don't just mean your bed, your clothes, your pictures on the wall, your clothes horse... I mean everything. The atomic structure of your possessions begins to melt away, a flowing stream of particles evaporating away from their original place and into the mouth of the creature. The walls, the floor, the ceiling, the oxygen, everything pulled towards it. The string of atoms is almost beautiful in a horrific way.

    The space is left empty. Not in the sense that the room is vacant, but that this block of space is now devoid of existence. It is a void, bereft of existence, a room-shaped hole in reality. It is painful to look at, the eyes do not wish to process it.

    Content, the beast moves on to another room and begins the process anew. It is a slow process, but room by room, building by building, the creature intends to destroy everything. And once there is no more interior to wrap the exterior around, the reality of our world will simply collapse inwards, folding in on itself.

    ...or something like that.

    A good name for this, I have decided, is "The Fourth Wall".

    The other comic they did aout the micropayment guy (the billygoat/honey comic) was just as hilarious.

    Yeah and it did point to how ridiculous his plan was. Though PA did stay alive based on paypal for a while. Which is kind of amazing.

    Any of you guys know of any games, new or old, that are about Building Things? A city, a transport network, and empire etc...? More specificially, games that might (or might not) contain some aspect of conquest but are really focused on making things. So maybe Pharoah or Caesar 1-4 but not Civilization.

    At least meticulously painted, good looking models are creative to some degree, and could even be a good example for a job in model making, painting, etc. if they applied themselves and found the right place for such a career.

    It's someone who's constantly playing, being an utter rules lawyer and so on with blank figures that's REALLY sad, since then they're not even exercising a little creativity.
