@eccentrix: The ammo thing made me irrationally annoyed. Don't even get me started on removing the Mako!
You're preaching to the choir.
To add-on to the trashing of the world building established in ME1, weapons don't even use ammunition in the modern sense. Double-checking the ME Wiki, under the Small Arms section (Have to scroll to it) on the Weapons, Armor and Equipment page, weapons are basically throwing tiny bits of whatever metal has been slotted and this makes ammo capacity a foregone concern. Which makes the change to thermal clips bewildering. I chalk it up to the EA pressured trend of not enough relatable gunplay in the game series that EA was backing during that time period.
@dornath: As in every video or something specific? Quality level? Currently watching Playdate: MK8 Deluxe: Booster Course Pass on HTML5 High. Been watching the videos fine via Firefox on these settings for the past couple months just fine.
@sethmode : At least the necro'ing is still relevant to today and not completely random? Also, it's the b-day thing as noted in the original post.
I'm with @monkeyking1969 on my FB usage. Kept my Friends to actual family & friends and not everyone and anyone of the slightest tenuous connection as a friend. Regularly use FB for keeping in contact with friend group. I was checking FB on average once a day. And then sometime last November, stopped the habit of that daily check and haven't looked since. Because that's how much I care about FB. Useful tool, but still a primarily a waste of my time. I also ponder how much it depends on the person and their needs/dependency of such services. Or maybe I just have a dislike for algorithmically decided content feeds due to formative years spent on forums with chronological posts divided by relevant section and individual topics.
Something fun you can do with FB: Turn off your b-day from being displayed or whatever. I did that a couple years back and don't get the auto-reflex from all the auto-reflexing Happy B-Day peeps when that day rolls around. Also quickly points out the people who actually remember it's your birthday and want to tell you Happy B-Day.
@laughingman : May I recommend linking the relevant blog posts on each listing on your Ranking of Roguelikes? Create a central hub for anyone who stumbles across a posting or the list.
Enjoying the Roguelikes blogs as I learn more about one of the many roguelikes I haven't come across and enjoying the opinion of a roguelike I have actually played. Looking forward for your future posts! Thanks!
Actually looking forward with enthusiasm for this year's GOTY podcasts after looking at the Staff 2021 lists. While the staff numbers have shrunk for 2021, the breadth of games that made the list will be very interesting to see what shakes out after the crucible..
That's great to hear, @dwmc! Hopeful it is interesting enough to push you through the rest of the game. In comparison to Act 1, the rest of it is more straightforward and I feel is more about the card game. But don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the story it tells.
Tossing this particular one onto the pile because Jupiter Hell has already been mention: DRL, formerly DoomRL and spiritual predecessor to Jupiter Hell. (DRL's site & GB's DRL page)
If you haven't come across it, just think Rogue but a coat of simplified Doom-themed paint over it. Currently uses a graphic tileset, but it was originally ASCII. Unsure if you can still get it that way.
And thanks to @nuttism for pointing out Demon Crawl. Minesweeper + Rogue-like? Sign me up!
EDIT: Some digging for DoomRL ASCII mode as the tileset was released in 2012: Add a '-console' to the command line startup or edit the config.lua line , changing TILES to CONSOLE. Or launch through a console mode shortcut? I have no idea how old my Windows start menu folder of DoomRL is or if it was an auto-installer that set it up.
