I disagree. To me it seems like the waves of enemies do a better job of spreading out and not clumping together for me to hold down R2 and mow a mob down. There's also better enemy movement animations, like how the Fallen get on all fours and crawl/run around super fast.

I'm lovin' it!

my favourite is probably Excession

I think I admired Excession more than liked it, but I was also 16(?), so looking forward to revisiting

the throwaway line in player of games about how any society with a legitimate claim to gender equality would have widely-accepted gender-neutral personal pronouns definitely made me go "oh...right" when i first read it

I'm enjoying them way more than when I was a sf/fantasy dork teen exactly because the Culture itself is so fascinating and comforting for an older, more cynical person. it's nice to just wallow in automated luxury anarchocommunism right now. all the drama in the books comes from the Culture being forced into interactions/interference in societies that are winkingly more like our own.

yeah just do them in order

Consider Phlebas is kinda overstuffed and more episodic/action-y than the later ones, but it's still the best introduction

It's funny how the first Culture novel is written from an outsider perspective and The Culture is the "bad guy"

Well, I never played Destiny 1, and I haven't played a shooter in years, but i'm playing D2 and I gotta say, I stoink at this game, but, its pretty fun so far, and I haven't found anything I can't beat if I stop and think about it for a second.

Any of the recent DayZ-likes any good?
A friend and I are looking for good multiplayer games, and for some reason I'd like to try one of these survival games.
I've played DayZ in 2014 and kinda hated it. I've also played Rust and Ark, and didn't really enjoy them either.
I played those solo though.

Just found out that I have this in my Steam library.
Might try it, thanks!

(I remember playing a pirated version of it in 2013 or something. I hope it's more polished by now.)

most hobbies demand effort. They ask of me to not even just be sitting down sometimes.


I try to convince myself to go back to recording music but there's too much that stands in my way of doing this (like tech issues) that i don't have the patience to resolve and besides who gives a shit about creating your own art. It's a vain enterprise in both meaning of the word. All i expect for the rest of my life is to be able to play good video games to numb my brain with from now until death.
