Re: I think I've become a hardcore Atheist.

I liked George Carlin. He might have a word with respect to this thread. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeSSwKffj9o :P In earnest, I don't think humanity is in a position to requite a question that looms so large. However, I do think that which is empirical, the scientific method, and anything of cr...

Re: Projected Shadows in Quake III

Saladin is right when he says you're better off not hearkening to the "projected shadows" of Quake III. Since the following option is not an allowance in the game menu, in order to access the different kinds of shadow techniques the game can use on characters and items, use the command "cg_shadows",...

Re: Halo: Combat Evolved being remade

I hope this isn't too much of a necropost. it's not like Saladin's opinion is unwarranted. the FPS genre is stagnated hard and rehashing and sequels are the new black. I just don't think this game needed a remake. it's still a good FPS to this day and arguably the best in the Halo universe. why risk...

Re: Crysis 2

GOD DAMN YOU 2011, WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MY WALLET Seriously, I'm not really that interested. Crysis was kind of gimmicky, relying on its graphics to sell for the most part. More a benchmark than a game, as the actual game is only kind of interesting. I agree. I quite tire of the unending 'sequel' ...

Re: New Elders Scrolls 2010

I'm quite excited for Skyrim as well, being a major fan of The Elder Scrolls series. I rather like the variation of Morrowind's theme (along with the Viking [esque?] Choir) that I heard in the second trailer, but then again, I'm just as fond of the snippets of the score heard in the teaser, and Jere...

Re: Zodiac changes

I would be incredulous at the thought of believing something based on faith and nothing else, so I don't think I would have ever totally believed in astrology and nothing else (nor given way to any such thing). But I will concede that I acted upon too many impulsive and questionable notions as of th...

Re: How do people survive??

Memories may always make one feel old. Yay Wester commented on one of my posts. I feel very honored! :) I take great pride in knowing I'm not one of these stupid fucks and that I have had a great education. As am I that you feel my commentary is honoring. Your sentiments within their own are honorin...

Re: How do people survive??

I think moments like all these vindicate that most think in a terms of substance - or in the immediate moment rather than the long term. That, along with people being of the belief that they know everything under the sun (in tandem), makes for disastrous results. Most have very undeveloped ways of t...

Re: Portal Forums Blog Thread

Good and ardent tidings to all. Sorry I've not posted in such a stretch of time. I can't say I have much to say. I sincerely hope you've all been doing well. Of late, much has happened in my life as it would in anyone's. But the major talking point of interest here (on my part) would probably be tha...

Re: I Declare New Deal!

All things, at length, succumb victim to an end. That's the crude nature of life, in my eyes, not anything of a worldly notion. That said, I'm still here and I still pass by and frequent this place now and then. I want to make it clear that I don't feel listless about all this. I don't hate you guys...

Re: Happy Birthdat Wester and Juggs!

Thanks for the accolades and recollecting, everyone who did. And happy belated birthday to you, Juggernaut. As for me, I feel less like a 20 year old and more like I'm not a progressive or waning age of any kind so much as I am just me. That's the way I rather like it. I also find this to be a great...

Re: New Black Mesa (Black Mesa Source) trailer!

It's a new batch of voice actors (from the team behind the mod itself, if I recollect), to my knowledge and recollection. I don't think they quite capture the host of the emotions of the original voice actors (Mike Shapiro, etc), but I'm indubitable that there's still room enough for improvement upo...

New Black Mesa (Black Mesa Source) trailer!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGlhgVz5r6E I think Chapstick will be one to agree with me in the immediate moment that it seems, judging by this trailer, that the wait has been of merit for the mod in question. This trailer of late is rather diverging from the teaser (the teaser was a lot less acti...

Then be done, Jazz. Exude. Be free, or however you'd give definition to the notion of "free" to begin with. :) As a loner at heart I say to be alone is to be great. Anything else in life is just immediate filler outside of being and accepting. If you need time away from this forum due to the overabu...

Re: Nostalgia Attack

I've found that as of late older games like Half-Life, Unreal, Mario, Chrono Cross, and games of the like have incurred nostalgia for me (especially whilst I'm by my lonesome). And though I do rather welcome this new generation of games, I do find something irredeemably awesome about older games. I ...
