Similar to most other people here from the looks - play other games instead!

New day, new question!

Oh no! You have eaten exactly enough blueberries to accidentally travel back in time (to a time of your choosing for this question, in reality it doesn't work that way- the time period is always random), what products/ideas can you actually "invent" with your knowledge?

I'll go back to the age of the cavemen! The product I could create would be SotM! The card counts might be slightly off.

New day, new question!

With the new Spider-Man game being released on the PS4 a couple of days ago my thoughts are on Super Hero video games, what are some of your favourites?

Sentinels of the Multiverse. Also Ultimate Spider-man for PS2 was wicked awesome.

It's my nephew's 5th Birthday soon and he's getting lots of fun toys, what was your favourite childhood toy?

Legos!

Specifically the Futron Star Defender 2000 and some of the Blacktron sets.

I'm not sure if I can honestly call Lego my favorite toy as a kid, because I never grew out of them... :)

Apart from Lego, I remember spending a lot of time with the original Power Rangers megazords.

I would probably say Lego also.

I'm with bobbertoriley though, I still love Lego now.

Yay Legos!

If anyone wants to hear a condensed history of how the company started (in a humourous manner) you can do worse than clicking on this link and watching from about 1.00 to 4.00.

 

New day, new question!

Aside from this post, what are you reading right now?

Exactly right now: BGG in another tab.

In general right now: some of the new Star Wars novels. Just started Rebel Rising this week.

New day, new question!

Is there a game you regret buying? One that you put alot of money into purchasing and then never got to play? Or one that just didn't fit your gaming style?

I think the worst one was genuinely excited for Shadow the Hedgehog back in the day. As a kid, $60 for a game you realize is no fun by the second level is a really hard lesson.

On the board-gaming side, while I love the theme of Red Dragon Inn, I've now bought a near complete set that's seen play maybe once or twice.

Ogre Designer's Edition.

My games crowd is into A> cooperative gaming with B> 3-8 players and C> generally not into wargames. So I have a big (hugs) box of awesomeness and nobody to play it with.


Let R be the set containing of all sets which do not contain themselves. Is R contained in R?

What youtube channels do you recommend people should check out?

 

No questions on Sundays from me, if someone else wants to post one, feel free.

If you're into computer games and people being silly, anything by the Yogscast. More specifically, if you're into tabletop gaming there's Tabletop Weekly, and if you like tabletop RPGs/DnD then try High Rollers (both are part of the Yogscast).

If you find cats amusing, check out Simon's Cat (funny cartoons of a cat doing stuff, based on the silly things real cats do).

If you like spoof versions of songs sung by characters from the Portal games, check out Harry101UK.

Hmm, I think that covers all the ones I regularly visit who still post videos every now and then...

Console gaming because it’s a more consistent experience.

In all honesty, it really does depend on the game.

Like if I'm in a platforming mood, I'm going to choose console.

If I'm looking for almost any kind of online experience(MMOs and the like) then PC might be a better time.

RPGs? I like mine on handheld systems normaly, so if need be I can just pick it up and play at any point, filling up the tiny moments of my day that I'm waiting for something with glorious vidiya.

For SotM? Until Handelabra decides to put it on the Switch, it's strictly on the PC for me.

Coffee or tea?

I got all spoilers I can.

If there is a recap on Tvtropes, I read it.

Why ? I dunno ... I guess ... I don't like surprise.

A reward? Ooh!

Well let's see... I'm quite found of Yorkshire Tea, but I've got a good source for that here in Canada, and shipping from the UK would be expensive.

So maybe you could enjoy a nice cookie or biscuit on my behalf while consuming your non-coffee/non-tea beverage of choice?

New day, new question!

Is there a part of "geek culture" that you just don't get? For me it would be Game of Thrones, I don't see what is so great about yet another fantasy series.

Your loved one is bitten by a zombie, do you shoot them in the head?

I'll double-tap them with little hesitation.

The person I cared about is gone -- it's just another monster...

Well, it is Ronway. We kinda expect it of him. 

But keep in mind he's doing it while not wearing pants, so it's not quite as impressive looking as it sounds...
