Cheers for checking in on me mate, We've been pretty safe from the fire season here on the west coast.
We've had some bushfires but nothing like the fucking hellstorms they've had in New South Wales and Victoria. My brother had a close call over on the NSW central coast but thankfully he and his family came out unscathed.
I've had to put my dog to sleep today though, I'd had him for near on 14 years. So I've definitely been better.

I've always wanted to visit Europe if I ever have enough money to go travelling. What would you recommend seeing in Romania?
Bran and Peles Castles are the first thing i would suggest Transfagarasan it's one most beautiful roads on earth also you should try the local cusinesyou can also visit cluj sighisoara and sibiu and many places also be a little bit careful if you are naive you can get scammed just like in any country on earth.

Looking back at it, it's probably a good thing that it happened. I'll know to be more cautious next time. Do you do much travelling?
Well i don't travel abroad and Romania it's much safer than Indonesia and besides just be careful at scammers and opportunists and use the leson you have learned in Bali and you will be safe for the most part.

well in that case i would try to get Boundless Inner World then i would also bring Darkstalkers if i could while you would spend time snuggling a inari in Brazil i would divide this world in 3 the world would be divided in pieces South America would be in Lilith of MGE's command the Africa would clearly belong to 2 succubi sisters while eurasia + north america would be my personal domain.

Keeping busy. I'm tossing up on what game I want to start on, Skyrim and Fallout New Vegas are always safe bets but I've played a shitload of them, I've got a steam library about as long as my arm but decision making is hard.
Also need to bite the bullet and start watching Overlord instead of just watching clips on youtube.
They will find one, don't worry about that. SARS, swine flu and avian flu all got vaccines pretty quick. This one will be no different. I just hope that the scientests in charge of dealing with it work shit out before the death toll gets any higher.
well a vaccine will take at least 3-4 months even if all the scientists work together to create a effective vaccine so it's not a easy task to create abut Swine flu it's was very contagious but very low mortality rate in case of avian flu high mortality Low transmission rate Sars was like 10% mortality rate and average transmission rate. but the new virus has on average 2% mortality rate but it seems to spread somewhat faster than swine flu.
It's getting to that point down here, restaurants, bars and places like that are all closed. The state borders are locked down and there's a five person limit on social gatherings. It's kind of hard to keep track of to be honest, every time I check the news the rules have changed.
i am ok but ok the reason why i was was believing that doomguy as some sort of human who loses all rationality and goes full oozaru at the sight of anything demonic demon or monster regardless of franchise look or personallity even if they look human-like and more than willing to do VanHelsingHateCrimes.
remember when i was saying going oozaru i wasn't implying that doomguy can transform or anything i was meaning that he starts to behave like one due to GenreBlindness. rather than evil
I don't know who Oozaru is, but I get where you're coming from. Fighting demons for millenna would make anyone jaded as fuck.
My counter argument though is Doom Slayer still has a heart under all that rage and ruthlessness. He saved VEGA when he didn't need to and was willing to work with Sam Hayden even though he was the one who started fucking around with hell in in the first place in DOOM '16.
Doomverse demons are evil killing machines all the time. MGEverse mamono are the opposite. I reckon if Doom Slayer manages to not blow away the first Succubus he sees, he'd quickly learn they aren't his universe's demons and not go genocidal.
oozaru is not a character is a transformation saiyans that have their monkey tails from dragon ball take when they look at full moon when they become one they attack anything at sight no matter what till the transformation expires or they have their tail cut off.
Also a fair point. It'd probably take a Lilim to make him see sense. Lilims would be able to hold him off for long enough to explain their point without being ripped in half. Mamono weaker then that maybe not so much.
no, my o.c is a diety that can do anything, but the diety extreamly loves cheesecake, so it stransforms into it all the time.also it´s a tiny reference to puella magi madoka magica (which may look cute, but its not, its very depressing)
While it's certainly none of my business, I do wish you well and pray you stop over-drinking. That stuff only kills your drive and makes you less than what you are. I haven't experienced it myself, but I've seen it mess with a family member. If you need to talk, I'll listen.
I appreciate the concern mate, but I'm doing alright. I drink because I honestly enjoy it. I love beer and a good time. That post was more tongue in cheek then anything else. I've cut back a lot from a few years ago, working full time makes all the difference.
I heard suvarium was supposed to be shit, never checked it out myself though.
I've been eyeing off Escape From Tarkov, I've heard good things, but I'm gonna wait till it gets out of beta.
If you like the free roam stalker experience, grab Call of Chernobyl. It's stand alone and has a fucking ton of content. Highly recommend. Everything you need for it is over on Moddb just patch it up to 1.4.22 and whack on addons till the fucking thing breaks on you.
The Croatian one is a war song from the Yugoslav wars, wich doesn't really sit well with us Yugos, we hate the war and what it brought, so many just don't want to hear of it, wich includes me. Balkaneers listen to good music to have good time with, and we want to have peace and a good time on our beutifull peninsula.
Heres a moe appropriate song, altough i don't know where it's from. here
@Spaz, I don't really do much dicking around with play speeds, so there isn't a whole lot I can add to this. I gave that one a listen at 1.5 speed, sounds like something that'd fit in a deus ex game. Which is a very good thing.
nice tunes fellas, and hey Walldo, good to have another contributer
had this song stuck in my head all weekend, made cleaning the house from top to bottom kinda bearable. ( fuck me I hate rent inspections)
you know it's OP but you can't help but troll other players with it lol XD
Unless you are against a turtle that just spams AA and Turrets, especially if it's a scrin player, we all know if you gib a scrin player enough time it's GG. Luckily you can just pull a superweapon on them defences then send in the vertigos. But if you're GDI Spam Firestorms and if you are also a scrin player, devestator warships will solve your problems.
Vertigo spam reminds me of a tactic in Red Alert 3 for the Empire of the Rising sun. They have this unit called the "Striker VX" and this thing...wow this thing. In Red Alert 3 they gave each unit a ability (like changing weapons, increased fire rates, changing roles, that kind of thing) So the VX has the ability to change into a helicopter in the air while on ground it works as a strokn anti air. Now for the tactic, it's called "Striker Rush" (or atleast that's how i call it) and has players build as many of these ASAP, and before yourr oponnent has finished building defences and his base is still young and weak they rush with the VXes and either cripple or destroy the base.
Again, Guilty Pleasure
Now imma ask you.. what is the scariest unit you can see comming towards your base should it be undefended?
Per universe ofcourse
(Also quickie. In Red Alert in one of the Empire missions you invade Los Anfgeles and can destroy EA's HQ. One of your units even says "Their ill begotten products shall take the shelves no more!" XD)
Self burn! nice. And people say EA doesn't have a sense of humour.
I'd say the scariest thing in any CnC game is being rushed before you've managed to build any defenses, but if I have to make it specific, I'd say Kirovs in RA if you don't have any AA units or you're base power's down. Hearing that "Kirov reporting" when you've just been nuked is fucking terrifying.
In the tiberium series any of the Kane's Wrath super units or the scrin airforce rocking up. Or Avatars. Or when some arsehole parks a jugganaught or three outside your base when you're already being swamped.
Imma say the same but change the Overlord tank to Emperor tank. *shudders*
But anyways, favorite and least favorite mission per faction?
Fav: THe final mission of C&C3 EARTH GO HARD!!!
Least fav: any of the oes in C&C4
Fav: Rio insurrection of Kane's Wrath, more of a thematic preference here, it's just the fact that Kane je back, you are final loyal commander and now you will let the world know KANE LIVES!!!
Least fav: Again any of the ones in C&C4, why the heck would we be in bed with GDI!?
Fav: The mission in Ra2 were you have to destroy the soviet nukes near the allies european borders, that was soooooooo intense!, felt like freaking James Bond!.
Least fav: The Hawaii mission of Ra2, i'm no fan of Soviet Nuke r@pe, the trick is to get them early buuuuut...heheh easier said than done.
Fav: Paris mission of Ra2, turning the eiffell tower into the stronkest tesla coil ever?, freaking cooooooool bre!
Least fav: Fox and the hound, dang...murican presidents are a pain to capture.
Fav: Mission 2 of Zero Hour, Aircraft Carrier stronk!, Navy ftw!
Least fav: *sigh* that freaking nightmare known as mission four of Zero Hour. you know the one were like your monies come rom vulnerable and booby trapped oil rigs?, and swarms of GLA zerg rush you? yeah that.
Fav: Mission 3 of Zero hour, Special delivery for the bottom of the ocean, i think you ordered an aircraft carrier? XD
Least fav: second mission of zero hour, Betrayal!!!!.
Fav: final Mission, CHINA STRONK!, REMOB GLA!
least fav: hong kong mission, nice cinematic but the rest of the mission is not that interesting.
Fav: Probably fox and the hound funnily enough. It was tough but it was a unique challenge. (that might be the rose tinted glasses talking there)
Least Fav: Yuri's betrayal in RA2. Prick of a mission.
Fav: Destroying the Chemical Weapons plant
Least: That mission just after it in the city. I remember getting swamped a lot.
Fav: Defending the retreating army. Did someone order comanche rape?
Least: the mission where the UN guy gets assassinated.
Fav: Last mission of Generals
Least: Taking those fucking WMD bunkers.
Fav: Defense of Sydney. Pfft. Do the yanks seriously think we all live on the edge of a desert? I mean we do, but it's not right next to Sydney for fuck's sake. apart from that, it's always fun watching the eastern states get shat on.
Least: Taking down Kilian
(I don't think I finished the other two so I can't really comment.)
I get the feeling they had an absolute hoot recording these. Thrax in particular. For some reason while I was listening to Ironside's qoutes I could swear I heard America Fuck Yeah playing in background. If he was any more yank pride, the raptors would all be replaced with gun toting bald eagles.
Red Alert series: United Commonwealth. Brits decide they want another crack at the empire thing, so They get us Aussies, the Kiwis, the Indians and Canadians (and all the rest of the countries I can't be bothered listing/can't remember) and get the band back together.
Generals: Some kind of global PMC I reckon. Think Belltower from Deus Ex: HR or pretty much any cyberpunk PMC really. You know the drill, shitloads of weapons and tech but absolutely no morals. Good PR department needed.
Tib series: Mutant Uprising would work pretty well I reckon.
east/west europe would be pretty neat. Wasn't the European Union supposed to be in Generals 2?
Anyhow, None of them would be nice places to live. I don't reckon anyway. Buut for the sake of argument, I'd say tib universe. So I could join Nod. What I'd like to be is a vertigo pilot, what I'd end up being is one of ya typical militia blokes. expendable as all fuck, but hey. They gave me a nice grey hoody.
Fuck yeah, that would be sick. I would love to take an apocalypse tank for a spin. Speaking of RA2, splinter cell? Either Tanya or Boris stealthing their way through enemy bases knocking off commanders and stealing intel. I reckon it could have potential.
I haven't had a chance to play onslaught yet, so I can't really give you an anwser. I did pick up a copy of UT'04 the other day though, so I'll have to get back to you on that one. The '04 shock rifle is an absolute hoot to use. I can tell ya that much.
Party time fo' sure. Take a swig of cossacks and load up the AKs, the zone's coming back with a vengeance, and I. Am. Fucking. Keen! My all time favourite series is getting continued, I never thought I'd see the day... I'm not even mad about having to wait three years, as long as I get a masterpiece out the other end.
I'll just have to keep cracking on with the call of chernobyl mod til then, I've been playing it for legit months now and It hasn't got old yet.
Huh. I'm kinda touched, I didn't think anyone would waste a perfectly good army on WA
Nah, one of the telecoms companies bought the rights to air the world cup. So unless I want to get Optus Live or whatever the fuck they call it. (which I don't by the way) Only Australia games are being televised.
He'll get a major suspension for that, he sent the other poor bastard to hospital with brain bleeding (thankfully looks like he'll make a full recovery) Made worse by the fact Cameron's pulled shit like this before.
About the same as the AFL most of the time. I'm starting to think it's one of life's constants. Death, taxes and the umpires in your favourite sport being shitcunts. (especially when your team's losing)
