@a_e_martin: thanks. If we lived on the same continent I would love to have a drink with you(of milk, I know you don't drink alcohol) just to talk about life and all that. Its not about giving advise really. Its about knowing that there are people out there who can understand what you're going through.
Its nearly 6 am. My girlfriend is asleep in bed. I don't know what shes thinking/ has thought about whats happened. I cant decide if I should lay down next to her and try to sleep or stay in the living room and keep drinking and give her space and pass out on the couch.
Okay so my girlfriend and I got into this stupid fight today. I was playing with my lighter, flipping it around and sparking it. She always thinks I'm gonna light shit on fire for some reason. She took it from me so I grabbed her lighter off the table and said take mine and I take yours. She kept at me until I let her take it back from me then she left the room without returning mine.
Thats what happened so far. and now heres my reaction to the situation. First though I should explain some things about myself. I have had anger issues for as long as I can remember, violence and the whole nine yards. But I have learned though therapy how to deal with it in at least a way that wont get anyone hurt. I haven't hurt a person(and never a woman EVER) since I was in elementary school. I never had a physical conflict with anyone through Jr. Highschool or Highschool or in my adult life. But I still feel anger. Anyway having something taken from me and not willingly returned is something that triggers anger for me. I don't know why, but I think it goes back to stuff that happened to me as a kid. Other kids teasing me and taking my stuff. So I was feeling angry and upset that someone I trust would do something like that to me.
After she left the room I as calmly as I could put on my shoes and a coat. grabbed my phone and Ipod. And left the situation. But on my way out I regrettably slammed the door and preceded to go on a long walk listening to the latest bombcast to help me calm down.
I got back about an hour later and she was still, probably rightly, upset with me. So I tried to explain that when she took the lighter from me that it triggers an irrational anger response in me and that I know I'm in the wrong for reacting that way. And in the end I think she might have understood what saying but I still don't think she totally gets that anger/rage is something that I have to deal with. Its apart of me and its always there. I have learned to deal with it but it still rears its ugly head from time to time. I don't think she gets that I am a victim and that situations like this bring back traumatic events from my childhood and my emotions go out of control.
I just don't know what to say to her so that she will understand how I feel and what I am going though and have been though.
I did not get much further after the Black Dahlia stuff. So my oppinion on the game could totally change.
My main point was about people bashing the open world being lifeless and boring. I think real life is like that. Its ludicrous to expect any game to replicate real life in the first place. To me driving from place to place without much happening is a big part of life so I actually though it was okay that LA Noire included a bit of that monotony.
LA Noire taught me never to play another Rockstar game again.
Because Rockstar did such a bad job of publishing it?
Because it shoots itself in the foot on several fronts, not just publishing. LA Noire is a prime example of a sandbox game that shouldn't have been a sandbox, of ludonarrative dissonance, of bad writing, and of Rockstar continuing its crusade of watching "classic" movies and trying to make games out of them. About the only good thing to come out of it was the delightful article over at Eurogamer, where the writer sat his Dad down to play the game with him, who grew up in LA around the time of the events of LA Noire.
Hah, that's pretty awesome! Gonna read the whole thing when I'm off work.
Just saying, though, Rockstar didn't make LA Noire... Team Bondi did.
I kind of want to play LA Noire again now.
While maybe not the game I'd hoped for, I still enjoyed my time with LA Noire. The ending was a bunch of bullshit, and I agree that the sandbox aspect was kinda pointless, but it's not a bad game by any means (imo).
Admittedly I have not seen the conclusion of LA Noire. But the time I spent with it was mostly enjoyable. some of the action sequences were bullshit but thats about it. I liked driving from place to place I don't see why people think it didn't need to be open world. Maybe the meaning/purpose of an open world game has yet to be defined. I know that in real life I spend alot of time driving from place to place. So the so called emptiness of LA Noire's open world is kind of bullshit in my mind. cause in real life the real "open world" is pretty empty too cause the only thing that matters is the place you left and the place you're going.
It's a bug introduced with one of the recent beta client updates, it'll get fixed eventually. Or you could opt out of the beat and go back to the release client.
Ah thanks. I don't want to give up my music and in-home streaming. I'll deal with it. :)
Off topic but what do you mean music? Does steam have some kind of music features?
I bought a bunch of games from the humble bundles, i liked the little inferno android version, rymdkapsel was cool too,and played the machinarium android version with my daughter the controls were a little clunky but i enjoyed it non the less
I just feel shitty when an android game has a PC version, so I usually end up playing the PC version.
