Re: What game are you playing now?

I have forgotten how realistic and difficult Red Baron II is. It's me, with all realism turned down, desperately pursuing a novice enemy, and still can't bring him down. https://i.postimg.cc/prBPytnj/Baron-2021-01-07-22-29-30-46.jpg Why don't you just stand still, you little f$&ker! Fokker?

Again, I am not a troll. I however do acknowledge that I am a person with very direct, aggressive and polemic opinions and this causes such reactions. That’s my latin personality, I’m half brazilian, half spanish. I do not expect you to understand that. I never acted like “I never knew it would …

Alright, I'm about to start on my wild boar spareribs with gravy, y'all! https://www.wild-auf-wild.de/content/wildschwein-spareribs Sides will be garlicky mashed potatoes and cooked red cabbage as a nod to German Christmas. Merry Christmas and all that. Maybe this time I'll remember to take a …

Re: Worst adventure game ever made?

in Milliways
German 1993 graphic adventure effort Der Schatz im Silbersee is supposed to be pretty bad, by all accounts. It's based on Western author Karl May's work and his estate/publisher was involved with the game. I haven't played it myself but judging from gameplay vids on Youtube the writing is pretty …

That cabbage dish sounds delicious! Yah! It couldn't be simpler either. My wife pointed out that it's somewhat similar to an American staple: corned beef and cabbage. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacon_and_cabbage#Corned_beef_and_cabbage_(USA) In a pinch, just slice some nappa cabbage, roast it …

I've had the Kirkland Keurig things. They're alright but nothing to write home about. I simply can't see how pre-ground anything can hold a candle to freshly ground beans and, as I said before, at >30$/kg you can are paying the equivalent of all but the most gourmet specialty roasts. I know it's …

Dungeon Siege It was sitting in my Steam library and I had barely ever played it, so decided to give it a go. I'm really not sure what to think yet, a few hours in. It's interesting that you have an entire party to control in a Diablo clone, and can even set up (very very) simple tactics for each …

Re: 8-Bit Guy video's are becoming a chore!

in Milliways
I only subscribe to LGR, Nostalgia Nerd, RMC The Cave and ADG. The others I'll catch when they show up in my recommendations. I also totally missed out on all the 8 Bit Guy controversy but I also don't watch every video although I mostly like his voice and editing. The music is okay too, I guess. I …

What you're looking at here is an honest-to-goodness Costco fruitcake. I usually start out the holiday season with the store bought stuff. But once we're into December, it's on to the downright delicious homemade fruitcakes that I like to baste in rum for several days. In fact, one slice of a …

Re: english, the planetary language

Any accent is aquired one way or another and it'll always function as social demarcation and die out sooner or later, so I'm not sure you can dismiss Valleyspeak on those grounds. But I get where you guys are coming from. California English is very close to the dominant American accent. But the …

Re: english, the planetary language

Intel486dx33 does have a point in that Californians don't seem to have a distinct regional accent. It's just generic 'American'. The east coast has several distinctive accents, as does the south and west. I can also usually tell Canadians from Americans by their accents. But there doesn't seem to …

Re: english, the planetary language

How do you say "old computer user" in other languages? In English this is an ambiguous phrase. It can mean both "old user of computers" and "user of old computers". You have to decide which meaning is correct from the context (on this forum both are probably appropriate...) A very good example. The …

Re: english, the planetary language

The people in America who speak the clearest form of english are Bi-lingual ( Spanish / English ) The people of California speak the most precise english with out an accent. Everyone else speaks english with some sort of accent or variant form of english. What Brostenen is trying to tell you is …
