@neau: For the longest time it was quite literally everything but the burn was a big part of it. First time I tried whiskey it tasted like paint thinner to me. There was this distinct feeling of alcohol nearly evaporating off my tongue or something. I first tried whiskey I think on my 20th birthday, it was Jack Daniels which was a bad first choice. I think I started enjoying whiskey when I got to my 30's.

@hughj: Very interesting! I do remember reading that our taste gets more dull as we age a while ago. There are some things I never liked and I still don’t but in terms of alcohol it does seem constantly evolving.

Much like any food really, you can't just will someone into liking IPAs just because you really enjoy them - I know this from experience.

My brother and his friend drank IPAs back when I was primarily into screwdrivers and drinks and didn't even enjoy regular beer. Once in a while I would take a sip of their beers and always found them just completely unpalatable. Couldn't comprehend why anyone would want to drink something so bitter. Then one day it just clicked and they are now my favorite beers, but no amount of them saying "try this one its really great" made them actually taste good.

Weirdly enough same process happened with me and whiskey where I could barely swallow a sip for the longest time and then something just flipped in my mouth and now it's my favorite type of alcohol and I don't even like diluting it with ice.

@bisonhero: Yes and it’s been a glorious few months. In all seriousness I’m not going to cancel my subscription or anything Wild like that but as has been pointed out it’s a lot different when they talk about PC builds or a range of other topics that are industry related than when they start diving deep into a topic that a lot of people don’t follow at all. So for me personally it’s just sitting there fast forwarding because I have no idea who any of these people are not to mention my general distaste for it. A lot of folks here are huffing and puffing but it’s a valid complaint because it’s nothing like talking about energy drinks or reviewing fast food. You don’t need to know anything about Monster Energy Drinks to follow along someone describing what they like about it.

@jackedup: they should totally bring it back if it’s going to keep wrestling talk off all other content.

@cptbedlam: I made a thread about it ages ago and absolutely no one cared but yah it seemed real neat. During their pandemic streams Rorie played this at one point but that’s about it.

Kind of a shame Jeff didn’t push forward like 5 more minutes in the Ascent if only for the visuals of the upper levels. Game is so dense and looks absolutely amazing on a 4K TV - UI problems aside.

@kdr_11k: I remember it being really cool how you could place your steering engines in weird configurations that would change the way your island steered or if you wanted long range weapons or ramming spikes. Real neat game for it's time.

This episode really breezed by! Really curious about where it goes. I started thinking what game I would pick that I really loved but not a lot of people know about and it's tough to come up with a game that I'm actually very familiar with. Like I thought Bureau 13 or Stratosphere: Conquest of the Skies were really neat I don't remember anything about them.

@cyrribrae: funny enough I’m waiting for it to go on Game Pass. These days it’s my main way of playing smaller indies.
