RAWR Dwarf Fortress is EVIL.
« on: February 26, 2010, 10:28:17 pm »

Rawr, I am currently playing DF, it's open in a window right next ot Firefox...


...Right next to this obcenely expensive compute I am currently using to play DF is a perfectly good, un-opened copy of Bioshock 2...

...Does DF have some code in it that turns my PC into a crack lab, and then distribute the crack via my fan?

I keep telling myself, "Ok, I'll finish this season, then play Bioshock..." and it just goes on and on. EVIL!

IT. IS. EVIL.

There is nothing amazing in Bioshock2. Good game, but I played it twice (got both endings (save all, harvest all)) and that was that.

DF? There is never anything the same. And want to know the best part? In a few short [units of time] we will have DF2010 which is going to CHANGE THE GAME ALL OVER AGAIN.

We all get to learn ALL new things. The game that was never the same, will forever be even LESS the same once DF2010 is released.

These are symptoms of choosing between a game as deep as a puddle versus a game that emulates geographic features accurately and attempts to simulate realistic hydrodynamics. While they don't exactly mirror real life, everything deep about DF is both fun and fun.

See a doctor if you experience more unwieldly symptoms such as this.

Dwarf Fortress is evil?

No shit.

That's the great thing about this forum. We can derail any discussion into any other topic.
It's not an embark so much as seven dwarves having a simultaneous strange mood and going off to build an artifact fortress that menaces with spikes of awesome and hanging rings of death.

I'd post a perfect rebuttal to any claims that DF is evil but I am too busy harvesting the bones of merman infants.

@topic: I STILL can't start a new fort with the new DF version just looming behind the next hill.
So it's not as evil as usual I guess.

But that becomes the anvil paradox. Who was the first one to vomit, and why?

Everyone knows the first anvil in every world is generated by Armok (you/me) when we create our 7 founding dwarves.

DF is most certainly the most evil game yet created. It strikes me as hilarious that you'd play DF over Bioshock 2. But I understand why you are. I recently bought Borderlands and played a bit of it, then found DF and since then I haven't touched my Xbox 360. It serves as a testament to the godliness of DF.

You know, the first anvil was probably created via possession. Which is to say, Armok thrust the idea forcibly into a dorf's head, who then made it. It likely menaced with spikes of silk and unicorn bones or something mindboggling like that, and was made of highly improbable material. Like frozen water blocks.

You know Armok and his sense of humor.

As to DF's evil... Yeah. I agree. I play it more than any other game, and I've not let DF2010 from letting me make new forts. After all, I can just get more dwarves killed in this next incarnation. :D
