You know, as weird as it seems I'm in almost the same situation (well, maybe), except with a 7 year relationship and I'm so confused about everything. PM me if you want, would be good to talk to someone about it all.

I feel twice robbed. Once of a man I never got to meet and twice of a friend I grew to love from a far. My heart goes out to all who will miss Ryan Davis.

Well said. Here here.

@echoforge: @dtremblay: Same. I'm crying here. I have never cared (past feeling sorry) about a celebrity passing, as I have not had any sort of meaningful relationship with them. This is cutting me up, hard.

The amount of years he has made brutal shifts at work fly by. The amount of times I've tried to mimic that confidence and wit. The amount of times he's made me laugh.

I've lost a friend. A friend I never met, that never knew me. I'll still call him a friend. This sure feels like I've lost a friend. God dammit Duders, I'm weeping here and I know some of you are with me. Stupid forum words are not enough.

I wonder now whether it's a case of - both characters need something, and both are willing to live with the consequences to make them happen.

I mean, Joel needs a daughter and needs to absolve himself, and by the end he is willing to doom humanity and lie to Ellie to get that.

For Ellie's part, it seems to me she needs a father (everyone around her has always died) and feels the same survivors guilt as Joel, and yet she is willing to believe his lie about the fireflies for her own needs (and perhaps his) and to continue the relationship with him that she has and needs.

She seems to know that he's lying, but is willing to accept it. Everyone has needs, everyone is selfish to a point?

Oh, really?

Fez is a console game, not a PC game,” he [Fish] states, emphatically. “It’s made to be played with a controller, on a couch, on a Saturday morning. To me, that matters; that’s part of the medium.” I get /so many/ comments shouting at me that I’m an idiot for not making a PC version. ‘You’d make so much more money! Can’t you see? Meatboy sold more on Steam!’ Good for them. But this matters more to me than sales or revenue. It’s a console game on a console. End of story

So, how about that Phil? Changed your mind? Weird how that goes.

The game seems good, but nope. I really can't stand Fish so I wont support him.

Now, I'm not saying this isn't driven by money (which, TBH, is totally fine in my opinion - why not make as much money as you can?) But I am going to get exactly the experience he described, on my PC.

With a controller, on the couch on a big screen - all the benefits of the console experience but on the PC! As far as I can see it's win win, no?

Thought I'd update peeps on my situation here. I've fixed my issues by going into the innards of Chrome and re-enabling one of the flash plugins. There were 2 there, one built into Chrome and one stand-alone. The stand-alone plugin was disabled so as not to cause conflicts. Re-enabled and hey presto- fixed! Hope this might help.

Yeah, I'm starting to get all the annoyed people across the world. I got in fine this afternoon, played for a couple of hours and enjoyed myself, but now I can't play a game that I bought. A game that I want to play in single player anyway.

Actually getting annoyed ...
