@triumph_forks @mewfeuille @MochaKoffee @Kireek when we got a computer in, I want to say, 2001 and I was 10, it came with a copy of SimCity 2000 and I could never figure out how to stop everything from going to shit when disasters happened.
"OH NO, FIRE. WE NEED 100 FIRE STATIONS. WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M OUT OF MONEY? ALIEN INVASION? POLICE STATIONS. EVERYWHERE. WHY IS THE CITY STILL ON FIRE???"
@mewfeuille @MochaKoffee @Kireek @triumph_forks One of my earliest video game memories actually was horrifically (for them) erasing their half completed ALttP file when I was like 2 and left alone with the SNES. It had been like half a year's worth of work for them to that point. But thankfully, it didn't actually take more than like a month or so for them. to get back. to where they had been.
But I remember being forbade from being left alone in the game room for years after that.
@mewfeuille @MochaKoffee @Kireek @triumph_forks
I know for the longest time, 4 year old me could not figure out why AUTO kept killing me, even though I knew that that meant it was supposed to do the fight by itself.
And yeah, my grandmother and mom actually started playing video games when the SNES came out, and they loved ALttP, so they were always looking for long story based games they could spend like 12 hours every weekend playing when we would visit the grandparents.
@MochaKoffee @Kireek @mewfeuille @triumph_forks I remember being like 4, not being able to comprehend shit, and wandering in circles going nowhere for hours in both Earthbound and Seiken Densetsu 2. Totally transfixed by them which led me to actually beat them later on when I could actually comprehend menu systems.
@MochaKoffee oh no, lol
@MochaKoffee I'll take it. I'm sick of blockbusters.
@MochaKoffee Hey, that is pretty cool
@triumph_forks I've been doing like one island trip a day, hopefully have more time on the weekends to do multiple so I can really rake in some cash.
@triumph_forks I still haven't caught a coelacanth or oarfish yet, need to find a blue marlin too, but those aren't disappearing in April so I'm a little less concerned about getting them.
@triumph_forks I didn't even bother with bait. My second tier of cliff has a pretty long stretch of river so I just ran along it for like two hours catching emperor butterflies and 3 (!!!) golden trout while waiting for it to spawn.
The Mouse demands blood.
@MochaKoffee they should really save those sort of things for after he's done with the game proper and do an epilogue episode where they can show those things and Easter eggs off.
@MochaKoffee I'm sure some Republicans are thinking that. I think Mitch is mostly concerned with people in Kentucky who keep him in office.
@MochaKoffee He really just means he's okay with killing everyone's grandparents so he can be rich.
@MochaKoffee Congress should be passing Warren's proposal, but instead they're gonna pass a 1000 page McConnell monstrosity that's mostly kabuki theater and doesn't actually do much.
@MochaKoffee You'd think a lot of these companies would have learned after 2008.I agree they should be nationalized if they have to rely on checks from the government to stay afloat, but Republicans, lol.
