Also for the people in the thread who feel they need to agree or disagree with the video you're kind of proving the dude's point. It's only on the internet or in school yards where the concept of 'winning arguments' and black and white thinking makes any sense.

I'm confused by your statement. It sounds like you're saying the act of agreeing or disagreeing is a "school yard" or "internet" thing?

I'd just get the laptop and wait and see how things went. Maybe your room-mate already has a rig. Maybe the school has a better option. Maybe you'll be too busy for games or maybe you'll get hooked on some little addictive asshole of a game on your laptop anyways :P Or maybe you'll get there and realise you need it to program, test and play how you like to.

At the very least I would keep the money in the bank until after I moved and settled. Then if you decide you want it not only do you not have to lug a desktop with you when you move but you'll also get something better for the same price.

I don't hate Phil Fish but I also disagree with a lot of what is being said in the video.

There's just WAY too many assumptions being presented as fact.

*AQUIRED: Assassin's Creed IV is number one on my list.

*GIFTED TO SAID FRIEND: I'd like to get Nidhogg if my buddy doesn't buy it first (but I'm betting he will).

*AQUIRED: Also hoping to get a second copy of Don't Starve for my wife so we can play co-op when it gets added.

And maybe Saint's Row IV.

Picked up Trine 2 for 1.99 :) Now everyone in the world finally owns it!

The devs also mentioned in an interview with Gamespot that the game will not be about building so that throws most Starbound comparisons out the window for me.

Just because Just Cause.

More developers finally start including co-op in their games and we're complaining about it already? Sheesh.

Obviously cant understand the nuance of your situation but I will say things can go weird after you get into a job.

You say it's hard to be motivated doing some job you don't like for the sake of "getting work" but who knows. Is it a big company that you could roll through horizontally meeting people learning new skills? Maybe there's some stuff you could learn there that you could put on your next resume? The job I took years ago is nothing like what I do today or where I would've expected myself, and it's been a mix of inspiring and crushing, but I learned tons of shit every step of the way.

The bright side is that your profile says you live in New York so despite competition being tough at least there's jobs to be competing for.

I know I shouldn't and I hate to reply to these but honestly, That is possible from that door you knock from here?

Really. That's the best this bot could do?

I'm not sure if they have it or not, but a medic class that can swing the tide of battle despite the player having terrible aim a la TF2 could seal the deal for me :P
