So the HDD on my laptop did not survive the ‘bathtub curve’ of hardware life cycling, and failed within about four/five months (I bought it in November). Fortunately, I am backing up everything useful, and I have a two year warranty. I can get the part replaced.
Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
This is so important!
Really good friend of mine from work back home had seizures a few times on the job. This is crucial information.
My dad has suffered from seizures in the past. He tried to instruct my mum on what to do if it happens rather than call an ambulance - she freaked out. I don’t want anyone who knows someone that can have seizures to freak out and call an ambulance unless they get really hurt - these things are manageable.

AAAAAA! AAAAAA! AAAAAA!
20K milestone reached with this thing I’ve been writing for no idea since January! I’ll break to edit once I get to 50K.
7: Super Mario Bros. 3. One of the longest games on the NES, one of the most interesting too, full of secrets and shortcuts for the persistent and creative. To finish this in one sitting you’d have to set an entire day and evening aside. Fortunately, it is playable today on the Nintendo Virtual Console.
18: Unreal Gold. It had a female protagonist by default (You could pick different skins, but the story pointed towards a female hero anyway), interesting design and story throughout, and good FPS gameplay. In addition, it wowed the pants off of everyone with a true 3D Engine and kickass soundtrack. Shame the series turned their attention to Unreal Tournament and never looked back, then faded out quietly after UT3 Black. (It left us with the UT3 engine though)
29: I’d have to go with both. One can’t quite work well without the other. Crappy gameplay lets a good story down, and a bad story that doesn’t compliment gameplay lets everything down.
Controlling sand with sound waves
why do people avoid happy backstories like theyre the fuckin plague jesus christ stop listening to linkin park for a moment and realize you dont need to be miserable to have character development
1: Yes. I only break the rules If I’m truly stumped, or if it’s an old video game played on emulation with unintuitive or strange game systems or moon logic puzzles. Old adventure games like Uninvited and Deja Vu were big offenders like that.
6: Dark Souls. It forced me to stop, watch, prepare, and learn from my mistakes. When I couldn’t play it further due to computer blowing up and GFWL being a jerk, I went onto Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (3DS), and a lot of what I learned in Dark Souls transferred there once I got the controls right.
14: I wished the F-Zero games had more voice acting during the races. The whole series since X and onwards has had a very hammy and badass look to everything like a Jack Kirby comic book. Intermittent trash talk during the races would be interesting to listen to. “Show ya moves!”
15: Shinobi + Strider = HOLY SHIT! NINJAS!!
They’re both properties with some chops, one of them got a reboot very recently, and it’s been a fun playthrough so far! The other’s gotten a game on the 3DS too a couple of years back, and I’ve heard it was pretty good. Just put ‘em together, see what happens! More ninjas = more awesome, obviously!
16: Jason Brody. Never have I wanted to punch a protagonist in the face than this twenty-something ink-imprinted-upon-skin enthusiast. He was one of the most bland, most contrived protagonists I’ve ever had the displeasure of controlling. I kept on telling myself as I was playing: “I am not Jason Brody who are these people who keep calling me Jason Brody I am Jason Bourne or some manner of faceless nameless mercenary adventure person who just happens to look like this Jason Brody dickhead I keep hearing about.”
