Good news, everyone! My laptop exploded yesterday morning. It refused to boot to the hard drive. Although, the hard drive was intact. I couldn’t system restore or anything. BLAH BLAH BLAH LONG IRRITATING STORY BLAH. 24 hours of headache later, I finally have it restored to Dell”s factory image with everything important salvaged and stored on my external hard drive.
I only have 99 windows updates and 5 billion programs to re download. No big deal.
I’ve been pondering it. EVE Online too. I’ll do my research.
I tried EVE because a friend of mine had been asking me to try it for years, it wasn’t my cup of tea personally. From the few days I fiddled with it I gathered: You train skills in realtime, which I thought was a pain in the ass. You only see your character when you dock at a station, and you are stuck in the same room every station. There’s no walking around or exploring on foot. I just couldn’t get into it. I like STO because it balances it out, you’re not just always in space, you have places you can walk around and explore, you go on away missions. Flying around in space forever games, as pretty and neat as they may be, give me a headache.
A long time ago, before all the xpacs, I use to post a lot on the TS3 forums. I ended up banned over some trifle. The email stated it was a perma ban, but I was still able to access my account and games for two years afterward. Sort of weird.
As I’ve spent 90% of my time playing it excitedly giggling, I would say yes. I had really low expectations for it going in, since I thought I probably wouldn’t like it because it would be like E.V.E and I just couldn’t get into that. But the fact that there are plenty (as far as I can tell) away missions, and that I can hang out on my own bridge and invite people to it is awesome. You can pick and customize your officers and stuff. It seems like it’s tailored for immersion, which I like. Although it doesn’t have the addictive aspect of WoW, I give it my seal of approval.
I really need to stop making captain’s logs on Star Trek Online. I just sit on my fucking bridge and write super terrible reports, then I have to read it outloud to Bret in my best Picard voice. I cannot resist. I CANNOT. I LOVE AND HATE YOU FOR IMPLEMENTING THESE THINGS, STO. Even though you are free-to-play now, I want to throw money at you.
THIS IS THE WORST WEDDING RECEPTION I’VE EVER BEEN TO. Kirsten Dunst is just fucking moping around like she has the biggest migraine ever fucking conceived. Gee, I just married Alexander Skarsgard, I’m going to be really fucking sad, pee on a golf course, and take a bath during my reception, maybe a nap too. Everything is just terrible. He even bought us a pleasant little apple farm to live out our days, HOW DREADFUL. Now she has completely cock-blocked him on their wedding night. THEN SHE WANDERS OFF ONTO THE GOLF COURSE AGAIN AND PROCEEDS TO MOUNT A TEENAGER AND HUMP HIM INTO SUBMISSION RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A SAND TRAP.
I finally got around to watching Straw Dogs (2011). THEY STRANGLED THE FUCKING CAT. WHAT THE FUCK. WHO DOES THAT. WHY. And then David is all like qqqqq Amy, why did you a gun out?! THEY STRANGLED OUR FUCKING CAT DAVID. And then he won’t even go outside and confront those fuckers. IF I WERE AMY I WOULD GO OUT THERE GUNS BLAZING, SOMEONE KILLED MY CAT, NOW IT MUST BE AVENGED WITH 10 BILLION SOULS.
On a side note: People in the south aren’t even half as batshit as these people make them out to be. AND SWAMPS AREN’T EVEN THAT FOGGY AT THAT TIME OF DAY BRO.
SEE AMY, NOW YOU’VE GOTTEN YOURSELF RAPED
Okay, but the enraged southern father and mob of drunken rednecks with guns, believable.
Has anyone ever worked for GameStop or known someone who has? I was thinking of applying but all I see are just awful “reviews” from their current and previous employees swaying people away from it like were a plague.
