I compulsively say Kaesar because of them.

You have to admit, talking to Caesar for the first time was a pretty huge shock, and made you think about your affiliation/alignment.

And then you'd have to decide which to support, the organized but corrupt NCR, or the well-meaning but not long for this world Minutemen.

But Alas, that would have been too much moral choice for that game. Or rather, too little, since their would be too many other options, and they gotta force you to make difficult decisions or else it ain't a Fallout game!

Awesome! Super happy for you! What was your dream job? Also, I hope you moved somewhere you like, with people you love, and which doesn't provide too many financial or commute-related difficulties.

That's all super interesting stuff! I hope the process helps improve pipeline safety, a very dry way of saying it I know, but the best way I could think of. How old were you when you started the company? Sounds like you've been pretty successful in life so far, and I hope you continue with the same amount of success, if not more.

Also, sorry if my last comment came off as creepy, I really didn't intend it that way.

If the existence of synthetic materials has taught me one thing, it's that there's always ways to improve materials.

Where is the pipeline, and what for? Also, what got you into chemistry in the first place?

Case in point! You could've ignored the comment, and no one would have held it against you, but you decided to personally reply to it. It creates a rapport with the community, something which is absolutely essential for a community in its infancy like SaidIt. It's part of the reason I still log on everyday! :)

Mouse aiming provides 360° degree movement, in my opinion to a greater extent than controllers. I've spent my whole life with Keyboard and Mouse, so my hands feel really weird when holding a controller. It also just feels like it adds an extra layer between me and the game. But yeah, I definitely do need to get a controller, not just for twin-stick shooters, but also for DmC 3 and Co-Op in Pungeon and Wizard of Legend.

My brother played it years ago. Our GPU caused a graphical glitch which led to Silent Hill-esque fog everywhere, and he couldn't dodge the boulder, so he stopped playing. For years, he thought that's just how the game was, and years later did he find out it was a GPU glitch.

I wouldn't consider it vetting either. It was a last-ditch, tape-on-the-hull solution that really couldn't have turned out any other way. And yeah, he definitely should've managed permissions better. Hopefully stuff like this doesn't happen in the future.

He messed up, and he admitted it. Good communication is how communities should be run. One of the things I love about SaidIt is how active /u/Magnora7 is in the community, and how they do answer questions, unlike the reddit admins.

I'm PC Master Race through and through, ever since our dad got us that Pentium 4 with 512MB RAM, and we played LEGO Star Wars and Indiana Jones and Conquer's Bad Fur Day, and Super Meat Boy all day. Good times. Also, I just never felt comfortable with a controller, but my hands fit on a keyboard and mouse like I was born with the damn things in my hands.

That's pretty interesting. But I wasn't referring to CRPGs. I was referring to tabletop. Have you ever played anything like Pathfinder, Fate, Deadlands, Call of Cthulu, GURPS, etc?

As for other genres, I'm a huge fan of micro-strategy like the original two Fallouts, Tom Francis' previous two games, Heat Signature and Gunpoint, and his upcoming game Tactical Breach Wizards, which I'm super excited for. I'm also a huge fan of roguelikes, as I mentioned before, like Dead Cells, Enter the Pungeon, and Wizard of Legend.

In terms of books, I'm a sucker for some hard Sci-fi, Fantasy, or Sci-fantasy, although I have yet to find something which pulls off that last one well, so I decided to just write one for fun. You know that they say, necessity is the mother of invention! I guess I'm also a pretty big fan of soft Fantasy, since I'm currently fighting the Poetic Edda. Classical Urdu literature is also really awesome.

The indie market is definitely where you should look for good games. Lootboxes have led to me losing pretty much all hope in AAA, but indie continues to push out beauties like Hyper Light Drifter and Cuphead.

Thanks for the website! My brother and I always say, "If it ain't free and open-source, it's botnet."

I've heard Lisa is utterly heart-wrenching and hits way too close to home for anyone who's been a victim of domestic abuse. I've been wanting to play it, but haven't been able to work up the courage.

HOW? I can't even get past Gatling Gull! Also, I only play prisoner because I get hit more often than Lalatina from KonoSuba.

Even the best vetting processes have a few chinks in the armour. In my opinion, a much more important skill is being able to respond in a timely manner in the event of a rogue moderator, and being able to reverse or at least mitigate some damage. What do you think?

Well, I like playing games as well! Currently, I'm trying to not be terrible at Wizard of Legend, Enter the Gungeon (read: Pungeon) and Dead Cells. I love seeing random strangers on the internet be happy. I also really enjoy playing RPGs. I'm currently GM'ing Caravan to Ein Arris for my sister. I've started looking into how to protect my privacy online as well. Do you play RPGs? If not, what are your thoughts on them?

Mine wasn't much better. A pentium 4, with Nvidia GPU and 512MB RAM. Dial-up internet and built-in speakers. Got it back in 2008, no judge.
