Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Even though I like the first game I've noped out from the sequel in record time every time I've tried it. Not a fan of the combat, thanks to the clunky controls and deadly enemies I find it frustratingly difficult. I don't know, maybe I should try to give it a fair chance one of these days. Yes, …

I'm playing Alone in the Dark 2 right now. It definitely has some problems but I actually don't mind the combat that much. I do have to consult a walkthrough here and there. Considering the fact that the very first thing the game throws at you is a hedge maze I'm somewhat impressed that I haven't …

Costco danishes are...okay, I guess? My MIL eats them for breakfast all the time which is somewhat funny because it's so incongruent with when you eat them here in Germany which is more like an afternoon tea/coffee kind of situation or maaaybe with a later morning coffee. But, anyway, Costco …

"Zwetschgenkuchen" have the looks of a special cake (known as Danish in the US) that we have here in Denmark. Actually originates from the island of Fuen. It is called brunsviger, yet the topping is made from boiling brown wet cane sugar, butter and a nip of fresh cream, into a kind of running …

I worked with a guy who was homeless for years. He is a good guy and one of the most heard-working people I've ever met. Trust me, homelessness can happen to anyone, given enough bad luck.

Do you realize that a decent number of those homeless have chosen that life? I'm quite certain that most people do in fact prefer not sleeping on the streets or in a car and not knowing where the next meal is coming from, particularly in a country like America with such a weak social safety net. …

And who cares about "political correctness"? That is just code for censorship, aka violating our first amendment rights. Uhm... Poland, the home of the game's developer Ragged Games actually is a good example for a country with very stringent hate speech laws. I think, if you'd try to excercise …

This is of course in very poor taste, unsurprisingly, however, it's not the first homeless simulator that I'm aware of. There's a longstanding German browser game where you "play" as a homeless person, collect bottles, fight other homeless etc. etc. https://www.pennergame.de/ As for people …

One of my great weaknesses is German food . I just love it. There is this tiny German restaurant I would go to in my hometown and the super nice German lady who owned it would make this amazing homemade plum cake. I could get very fat eating that so I never learned the recipe. lol Now that's a …

Since we're headed for Autumn here in central Europe, I'm eating seasonally appropriate Aachener Printen . This is a type of gingerbread seasoned with "a variety of ingredients including cinnamon, aniseed, clove, cardamom, coriander, allspice and also ginger", however, the English Wikipedia article …

Terrific game, great atmosphere and gameplay. Played it when it launched. Finished it with each character. I kept hoping for a sequeal and searching for something similar to play after finishing it (several times). "Enclave" came to the rescue, although it is not the same... Another game I love …

Hmmm... thanks, that makes a lot of sense. I do love anchovies but I use whole filets and I spend a bit more on them because I think that the expensive ones somehow taste better. But they definitely are a concentrate or flavouring rather than something you eat straight (except on pizza, obviously). …

Oof.. I wish I could get proper crab where I live. When we where visiting my wife's grandmother in California some years ago we went up the coast and ended up at a place called Barbara's Fish Trap in Half Moon Bay. Had a great blue crab sandwich there. The only way to get crab here is by ordering …

We’re trying to get through a huge bag of lemons a neighbour gave us so I did lemon chicken last night. I used ‘chicken tenders’ instead of my usual thighs and regretted it, thighs just can’t be beat. If you have a bunch of lemons, like lemon chicken and you can stand to wait 3-4 weeks you could …

Re: Favorite forgotten games

Ports of Call is a pretty fun sim game, imo. I don't see it talked about incredibly often. It's available for Amiga and IBM PC , both are good though I think the Amiga version has generally better animation and sound. I remember a family friend showing me this one on his PC. I was never much into …
