You know, I like the Pokemon games, but I seriously cannot stand playing them without an emulator. The lack of the accelerate function just kills me because everything's so slooooow. It's like they did it on purpose just to extend game time.
Yep. This is why Emerald is my favorite pokemon game. Because I can just press a button for quintuple speed.
You people have no perseverance! I beat that game four times without using speed-up crap!
That is entirely because you haven't tried speeding it up. That shit is like crack, my friend, you will never go back to waiting for unskippable animations to finish.

I know. That's why it's practically impossible for me to play Omicron or Zeta right now, because I can't move away from having access to speed up. >_>

Killed by a motherf*cking spider. It pushed me off a tiny ledge as I was trying to shoot a rope arrow.

Reminds me of my favorite Dark Messiah death. Pretty early on, you can drop from the rafters of a building into a tiny room that contains a table. You can't stand on tables.

Cue me jumping off of the rafters and landing square on the table, which causes Sareth to enter a falling animation. Fall for too long, die instantly.

Was that the secret room behind Menelag's bookshelves? It's the only place I can think of off the top of my head where that could happen.
That would have been hilarious though.

Dark Messiah truly is an amazing day. How many years later, and it still looks and plays great?
If only we could ever get a sequel, if only... Fuckin' Ubisoft.

Decided that playing old DnD based-games would be the best way to spend my scholarly intermission, not learning more Latin or using that textbook I borrowed from a friend to learn a 101 in a month.
  Learned that old-school gaming and old school controls means that friendly fire is sometimes a thing, and its quite possible to die in the tutorial.  In fact, its one of the contingencies planned for.  'LOL, the companion is dead.  Welp, we didn't design this to be beatable without her.  Have fun and reset the map when you're done!'.

I finally built up a giant attack force, with a second force on the other side of the map, with a resupply base and production facilities ready just in case. The mission was to perform a pincer movement on the enemy's base, using Force 2 to distract the majority of the enemy units, leaving the base undefended, save for a few Heavy Towers. Force 2 had just finished off the defenders when the laptop died on me AGAIN.
I hate being poor.

It's not that I can't try it again: I got an autosave about five minutes before I begun my grand assault. But I just don't have the heart to go through all the planning again.  :-\

Asphyxiated, and eaten by a fish monster that literally swam through a wall to get me, multiple times.

I (finally) beat the shrimp boss in the swamp level... and it autosaved right after, but I had NO air left.. in fact my character had already taken his mask off and was gasping. Meanwhile the NPCs have to fiddle around with a log to let you cross to get to the end... and I kept suffocating before they were done, then going back to the autosave where I'm gasping for air two seconds earlier.

I read somewhere you could jump into the water and it would reset your air so I kept trying, but when you fall in the water sometimes there's a scripted monster that eats you (and I guess after the boss is dead you always get the monster)

I did finally manage to do it by sprint jumping onto the corner of the log and sprinting down it while they were still moving it, and just sprinting straight into the building while they were trying to talk to me... and even then I had maybe half a second to spare.

I'm pretty sure I died more at that one spot then the rest of the game put together.

There's a LP on SomethingAwful where someone is playing through the entire Earth 2150 trilogy.
It's pretty great, despite the revelation that eventually the AI will actually spawn units in the middle of your base.

Took another crack at Ghosts 'n Goblins.

Ended about as well as you'd expect.

Not really a death, but my Dark Messiah game just sort of decided it... Didn't feel like working anymore?

It just sort of... Stopped. Everything was going perfectly yesterday and now it just crashes to desktop or errors after the opening cinematics.

Turning on compatibility mode for XP SP3 makes it load to the main menu really weirdly but it crashes if you do anything.

Turning on compatibility mode for XP SP2 actually makes it work, yay. Except I had neither of those options on when I was playing it *yesterday*, and it's probably going to stop working after I exit it and try to start it up again using the same settings. I'll see if I can finish the game in one solid block since I'm about half of the way through.

Also, Zombies with the breath attack? Fuck them.

Parasites are like Shamblers from the first game, but even worse and far more common. They're small, they're fast, and they can survive two Double Shotgun hits whilst draining upwards of 40 health before you can finally get away from them. They like to hang out in groups, skulking in shadows or just around corners so that you don't notice them before it's too late.

I found out why all the casual threads online recommend cheating using rerolls until you roll first generation supermutants.  Turns out point-buy only makes your characters situationally competent.  And I have no clue how XP is awarded, but it sure isnt by killing things.

  But, after some playing with numbers and concepts Ive gotten a semi-workable team of 5 lawfull characters.  If they arent ambushed by gnolls or bandits they can do okay-ish.  But I have much to learn, Im  sure.
