Happy Winter-een-mas, everyone! Anyone willing to take up Lucas’ Resident Evil 2 challenge?! I’d try it, but my wife won’t play scary video games with me.

“She’s not that scary, she’s just annoying….” *gasp and scream* 😉

I fondly remember the time when I watched a friend of mine playing MGS and God of War games….good times!

MGS is one of my greatest games of all time. I played that game on every difficulty level. And beat it on every one but the hardest. I couldn’t get past Raven.

In total agreement in regards to MGS being one of if not THE greatest game / franchise of all (our / my) time.

And I’m in the #WarHasChanged team, that’s for sure 😀

is it like meat-loaf?

I know I’m allergic to meat-loaf because when I eat it I get a terrible taste in my mouth …

I would, but I can’t afford AAA pricing for a remake of a 20yr old game. So alas, I shall await a sale to pick this up.

Americans pronounce it without h.

I dunno. I’m an American and I say herb, and I’ve heard British people saying erb. I don’t think this one has anything to do with location, people just can’t agree on how to say this word. ?‍♂️

Twat, though… Yeah, most Americans say that wrong. I don’t see any O’s in it, why do I have to keep hearing twot?

I’m getting autoplaying video ads in the lower right, that hover just above the fold. Volume on and all.

All of them. I’ve never noticed the video ads before, so if they’ve been there, they’ve been silent till today. Just saw it show up, and it surprised me. I’ve reloaded and revisited a bunch of times, to see, and I’ve gotten a handful of ads, from movies to allergy pills. All floating in the bottom right, just above the fold, and staying there as as scroll. Only reason I mentioned it, was because it seemed out of the blue.

Well, if you didn’t scream every time she rounded a corner, she might play with you.

We need to compromise: You don’t scream, and in return we take out all of the corners. Instead, all of the scary stuff is right there in front of you.
Also, very dim lighting.
Sound good? >:)

Is the scary stuff in the full game? I played the demo and there was no scary stuff.

Is Winter-een-mas strictly a video game holiday, or are card, board, and PnP games also celebrated?

I sat up for a while last night thinking of all the alternate crowns you could have. The coolest one had individual board game playing pieces (like the player pieces from a Sorry! or Clue board) adorning the top ridge. The dumbest had a big flat rectangle on the front, representing a smartphone.

I’d imagine that there would also be non-electronic iterations, but either arrows, directional buttons, or WASD would be the most mainstream.

Ever since someone pointed it out, i cant not see the Tyrant in RE2 as a messed up Dolph Lundgren.
Turns out being stalked by the Dolph is terrifying.

tofu comes from bean curd, and tofu the character is a living slab of tofu, so a sentient bean curd
