Really, really getting into Prey (Summer sale, made it only $39...). It is basically Bioshock 1 in space so far...
I was wondering if that was a game worth picking up.  But I'm still busy replaying my STALKER series. :)))

Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Only about 2 hours or so into it, so I don't want to say one way or another how it is. I'll let you know when I beat it (want to say completitionists take about 50+ hours).

I'd appreciate that.  Thanks.

It sucks when a fandom turns you off a well reviewed game, like is happening to me with Undertale. I don't care for the art style, I am not impressed with the gameplay, but the worst part is the fans of the game hyped it up so much to me and then got enraged when I said it looked, "Okay.".

Seriously, fuck Undertale. If you like it, that's great, but people who liked it too much ruined it for me. It crossed the point from, "Okay, that's kinda annoying but I get you really like it." to, "Jesus christ bob, shut the fuck up, no one carrreeeeeees."
This is similar to how I felt about No Man's Sky in the early months, except the other way around. I love this game dearly, but the rabid "hatedom" just would not shut the fuck up about how much they hated the game and the company who made it. Fine, I get it, you hate the game; some of us like it, though, and we want to talk about cool stuff we've found and share tips on how to survive and thrive.

Finally got into playing stardew valley. This games so dam relaxing to play, I've not played anything else in several weeks. The only mod I used on it was to make the characters into furries.

Started playing Deadrising. Pretty fun.
Can't save 'em all, though.

Had a nightmare about zombies last night. Downside of the zombiecraze we're going through, I think. Whenever I've had a 'supernatural' nightmare over the past four years, it's Always been zombies.
Consciously they don't even scare me. But maybe subconsciously they do.

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

To me, they're more unnerving than terrifying.  It's what they represent that's disturbing.  They're humans stripped of all their humanity.  Mindless and hostile.

But at least the upside to the zombie craze is that humans now know how to dispatch them effectively and know not to hesitate.  A real zombie apocalypse (which would be physically impossible) would fail extremely quickly.

Sounds like your typical theist to me.

Zombies are not and were not dead--just transformed quickly.  Isn't that right????

So, Shiranu, pray tell, how is Prey????

Not in the Catholic Middle Ages ... quite gruesome in fact ... and very dead.
