Does anyone know which of these panels will be streaming? I'd love to see pretty much all of them!

We need a Stop Yer Smokin' Dammit Club on GB or something. I want to quit as well (been smoking for 12 years), and I'd like to see some fellow duders take on the task at the same time. My only option is cold turkey, being a broke bastard and all (another reason to quit), so a support group would be invaluable.
I don't want to start right away, as I'm in a rough patch at the moment and don't need the extra stress, but sometime this year I want to quit. Anyone interested?
I could do with this too. I managed to do 11 days without one recently, but I wanted to die and hated everything at that point and needed one just to not get super angry at everyone. I would like to try again, but my problem is being in college cause the stress/other smokers makes it so much more difficult. But yeah I'd be up for a giant bomb quitters club.
@kidavenger: I'm applying for a bunch of jobs at the minute, I've applied to about 20 in the past 2 weeks, so far I've got a single rejection and that's the only one I've heard back from. I think my main problem is employment history, the problem being, well, I have none. I have plenty of education, and I've spent the past 4-5 years in unpaid/voluntary positions within the media industry (it's ultimately where I want to end up, I was under the belief I'd be the one to get what they want without ever having a 'real' job, but then reality happened), so I've no experience with sales, working in a business (I've essentially been self-employed for the past 2 years, working on short films/documentaries etc.). Any suggestions on ways to make up for this lack of 'real world' experience or do I just ignore any jobs that say experience required, or apply anyway and hope I get lucky? Also, what the hell do I put in my 'hobbies and interests' section? It always feels like a trap.
Tim Schafer and Greg Rice were in the office today. Odds either of them make a guest appearance on the Bombcast?
Didn't they go do that Gamespot thing?
C'mon bombcast! Some days it's ok to have a late bombcast, this is not one of those days.
As someone who want's to make some incredibly personal stuff (my chosen medium happens to be short films/documentaries), super happy to find this article. Good to know there are like-minded people out there who want to create this stuff, and also people who want to experience it. Makes it a lot easier to go do that rewrite cause you can't just use the 'but nobody cares about this shit' excuse.
- The Children
- 28 Days Later
- Funny Games (US) (have not seen the original...)
Not much, but the only ones that come to mind right now.
Isn't Funny games like Comedy Horror or thriller or something??
It's more of a thriller/horror I think? I know many people consider this a thriller, but I find the things that happen pretty much horror.
I don't remember if there is some comedy in it, but it certainly isn't like Tucker & Dale vs Evil or Cabin in the Woods.
I wouldn't necessarily call Funny Games a horror, though it's certainly one of the films I found the hardest to watch but couldn't turn it off. I legitimately felt bad about liking it. If anything, the fear is more of a meta-fear (I don't know if that makes sense). I think Haneke did an incredible job with this, I really think he is one of the most genius directors around. *puts on film school student's hat* His use of counter-cinema to remind you that you're watching a film really makes you question what we deem as acceptable on film, and why we find it acceptable when we'd find it horrifying in real life. That, dear readers, is where the true horror comes from - that we are capable of enjoying such acts of violence. *Takes off hat* Sorry about that.
Prediction: Patrick Klepek will continue to advocate for video games I have no interest in playing but will redeem himself by streaming himself playing a bunch of stupid horror games over the internet.
Speaking of streaming a bunch of horror games... Spelunky may be your own personal horror story (a horror story I love watching), but I miss me some good old-fashioned, jump scare-induced picture falling fun. Any plans for a good Spookin' soon?
I have to say, although I enjoyed what I've played, I feel like I sort of ruined this game for myself, here's why (not sure if I need spoiler tags in this thread, but everyone else seems to be doing it):
I found the secret passage for the key to the attic too quickly, upon entering the house, then went into the attic as soon as I found it. Now I have (at least) two locked doors to explore with no sense of mystery left, or really any sense of the ominous atmosphere I was enjoying.
Did this happen to anyone else?
Didn't even know that was possible. I feel like doing a speedrun of the game now. I guess this really just highlights the fact that you shouldn't play the game like Wolfenstein 3D...
BTW, there's actually a modifier that allows you to start the game with everything unlocked, so I guess they did intend for at least some people to play it like that...maybe.
I thought the game did a good job at teaching you that you don't need to pick up everything, or check every wall, I just learnt that lesson a little too late. I wasn't even trying to find secrets, it was a complete accident I found it. I don't know if anyone else found this (I'm not sure how you're supposed to find that particular passage later on), but I could imagine it being pretty cool finding out you'd been walking back and forth past the key for the whole game.
