Posts I've Made
02.09.2013 @ 03:55I hope I'm still allowed to talk about my general GNU/Linux experience aside from gaming...so with that said long story short I tried going from Windows 8 to Windows 7 using the HP recovery disks my laptop came with and I couldn't get Windows 7. I had the Linux Mint KDE live cd and I managed to install the entire distro on my hard drive.
Here's the thing though, I'm anxious about leaving Windows and everything I'm familiar with. idk I'm still in college and I feel I might face issues with docx files on Libreoffice and general issues with the pptx extension on the Libreoffice version.
Am I worrying unnecessarily? Any advice for my rather trivial worries? On a lighter note, I really love KDE though I still have much to learn about widget customization and how package installation/uninstallation works. I feel this could be a rather fantastic experience.
I have another question as well. Can someone explain why my root directory and user directories have to be on separate partitions? I just went with the default "install over entire hard drive" during installation for Linux Mint KDE.

30.07.2013 @ 22:19Hi guys, I recently got into Linux and have been using Ubuntu at the moment. However, I'm bored so I'm trying another beginner friendly (or so I think) distro called Linux Mint KDE 15 and I really enjoy the K desktop environment. Just a quick question, I swear by my ears that my audio sounds much better on a GNU/Linux distro than it does on Windows. Seriously, someone tell me if my ears are wrong...
11.07.2013 @ 02:42I would suggest using DayZ commander,my friend. DayZ Commander will manage all the dayz mods with one program.
Play With Six should be fine as it should not have viruses but I find its interface is not very intuitive.

Colibrie said:I kind of know the situation. Been so busy with studying that I haven't been able to play games. It was even hard to start anything as I wasn't got used to it anymore.
I would advice you to play "something" - do not get hyped or expect too much. Play for pleasure. The games do not have to be awesome at this point but just "nice way to spend some time". Maybe after sometime your "muscles" remembers what is playing and the familiar good feelings come after that. />/>/>
I enjoyed Tomb Rider that way. And was surprised how I got hooked to it ›››
Thanks for the advice, I will definitely look into playing something for pleasure. I guess there's another problem where visiting sites like reddit and various blogs sour my enjoyment of some games. So much hype and millions of forum posts about disappointed have somehow affected me.
Arclavum said:Hello, I think a lot of people feel you on this one, at least I do. Many people might say that it's your fault that you don't enjoy games anymore but I think they are wrong, if you played Diablo 2 recently and you liked it then it means it's the games you don't like.
Same exact thing happened for me too with diablo, I spent a lot of time on Diablo 2 and was waiting for 3 anxiously only to discover a huge dissapointment, the game didn't last more than a month. Personally I have tried a lot of games, and I pretty much feel the same, after a point I don't even care to try the new 'good ones' because I can already feel how much they will dissapoint me.
Anyway, a good solution is to search for some old games that you might enjoy, for some reason older games have got something in them, that simply based on that you can enjoy it much more than a new decent game. If you are interested I can offer some choices of games I have personally enjoyed very much in the past, and in present too. ›››
Yeah I was pretty burned out on Diablo 3 because it detracted too much from what Diablo 2's atmosphere great. There was way too much cliche dialogue and too colorful. It tried being so serious but it ended up being something like a childhood saturday morning cartoon.
I'm definitely interested in your recommendations though. Post away friend!
vivaxardas said:You know I was in a similar situation, and just couldn't get myself into any game. Then I got Tomb Raider (2013), and it was surprisingly great, occupied me for quite some times (finished twice). But now I am playing some random crap and waiting for something don't know what. Is it 2013 really lame on good games, or something else? ›››
I suppose on the mainstream end of games it does feel lame with some glimpses of something interesting like the Last of Us. I'll try and stay optimistic for the year />/>
Wichat said:Believe me... CDPR have perverted our taste for games after their presentation of TW3 in E3. Who would want a sponge cake when you know that there is a chocolate cake to come? At most we content ourselves with a cookie to not disappoint too much with the end result: hungrier for TW3. ›››
That is indeed very very true, Wichat! I have been spoiled by the Witcher games and I'm most definitely looking forward to the Witcher 3.
.Volsung. said:Try other classics and Indies. Most modern games demand so little from the player and they are so uninspired that you have little to no reason to play them or even less, replay them.
Play the games that actually have some talent poured in them and that require a mental effort from you. Those are the ones that make you feel accomplished, satisfied and entertained.
For example, some cRPG's like Fallout 1/2, Baldur's Gate 1/2, Planescape Torment, Arcanum, etc. These will require you to learn a satisfyingly elaborate system that lends itself to highly tactical and strategic play. In other words, think before you click. ›››
Is it sacrilege to state that I haven't played Baldur's gate, Fallout 1 or 2, and Arcanum...? I have played Planescape and it was a wonderful experience on my widescreen monitor. Very beautiful experience, though the combat wasn't the best but the literary experience couldn't be rivaled by any other game.
Glaroug said:Your avatar speaks loud and clear. You've already played the greatest game in existence. Now everything is cafeteria food. The world sucks a fat one after journeying through the Sigil and beyond.
EDIT: Listen to Volsung. A body can live forever on a hardy diet of cRPGs and Indies.
P.S. I found Diablo a little dull, but the excitement really kicks up on Hardcore so yu might try that. Duriel is one mean son of a bitch that eats Hardcore characters for lunch. Never journey without leads of Town Portal scrolls />/>/> ›››
Diablo is indeed quite a dull game if I really think about it but I will admit, hardcore was the best part of Diablo for me. You're right about the analogy of playing cRPGs and modern ones (except the Witcher, which I still think is miles better than any other modern rpg today). Modern ones just aren't good enough...
Wichat said:In fact, I'm playing Arcanum and Jade Empire. And waiting for GOG sales Vampire The Masquarade:Bloodlines... if they do it. It costs 20€ at Steam ›››
I've heard about Vampire The Masquarade: Bloodlines, how are you liking it so far?
vonjose said:If you fall into boredom for lack of good current games, I highly recommend Limbo, which is very witty, especially Trine 2 co-op, and specifically the end of August the 27th on Steam is coming to the PC port of Castlevania Lord of sadows it's great.
I forgot .... Portal 2
And if you like Tomb Raider, and especially the classics there are plenty of levels that are gems author, and free. />/>/>/> ›››
LarsMN said:Similar things happening to me aswell, most games I pick up nowadays I play it for about an hour or so and just never pick it up again (even if I enjoyed wich is really weird) ›››
cmdr_silverbolt said:You sound jaded- stop playing games for awhile, get involved in other hobbies. Why do you think it's important that you have to enjoy playing games 100% of the time? ›››
Blunt and to the point, I do appreciate your response. I guess I shouldn't be playing games 100% of the time and I'm certainly getting burned out trying to play as many games in one day.
