  1. Advice you would tell yourself rom 10 years ago

    If you think you've worked there for too long you should leave. Go outside and enjoy nature; explore. Everything hobby you get into consumes your life and you need to know that it is all your own fault but that you are also the agent of your own salvation. Don't use drugs alone, if at all. Go back to school and this time try to fit in. Don't be a contrarian in any aspect of your life that you are are not heavily invested in. Being friends with people just means showing people you care either through attention or act.

  3. Nostalgia Syndrome

    I think Skyrim is a great game the first time you play it and doubles as an easy in to RPGs. There is nothing complex yet it provides so much depth. It has this endearing feel about it which is reinforced a bit when you learn about the company - and this is further supported by a very large and active community of modders. The worst part of this game is found in many other Bethesda titles which is that in order to support this modder community they basically have a hands off approach to patching and updates, mechanical depth, etc. This has lead to many great things in the modding community but for the basic player on their second playthrough the flaws and bugs in the base game become very evident. That is really all I can say with certainty about Skyrim/Fallout 4. Oh, Also: check out Zharic Zhakaron, I think you may like him. Ummm, I really can't say anything else here other than actual nostalgia for old games causing new ones to come out is probably an issue for the advancement of gaming but tbh it has created a lot of interest in areas unexplored by the classics. (thinking about Hollow Knight)

  6. "Best" Game

    I think DA:O is the best crafted game in the series in terms of gameplay systems but it was so time consuming to play and not particularly interesting at many points. I liked the DLC's more, mainly because of the improved companions. I will say that it feels more authentic than Divinity Original Sin 2. In regards to DA@, I thought it was a refreshing take on the RPG genre but there was clearly not enough time to finish this game in any manner beyond what was accomplished. DA3 was fun but the Hinterlands scavenger hunt can kill almost any fun you have in the rest of the game. If I have to say stuff about ME series I'll agree that ME1 had the best world building. ME2 streamlined a lot of the gameplay elements from 1 that made the combat awkward sometimes - only issue I had was the fact a lot of the companion missions didn't fit in well with the story. ME3 is my favorite of the series but for some unexplainable reason they could not match the scope the story sets out to display. I wish they would have made handcrafted endings but the combat was perfect as well as the DLC. The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine is my favorite DLC and Mass Effect trilogy is my favorite series. Favorite boss battle outside NieR is the Dragon from Dragon's Dogma. I think NieR Automata: is the best game I have ever played. The music design is very refreshing and the streamlined gameplay controls when there are 3 different methods of gameplay may not be revolutionary but is well implemented. The art direction fits very well with the theme of the game (which is not apparent at first) and almost every facet of the game feeds into other areas to bring together one package that is nothing short of a perfect production. Imo what lies within the production is the most fascinating part; like many anime and japanese video games over the years they try solely to evoke emotion rather that develop worlds and this game does it to a T. If it is not apparent the music design is made so most of the music scheme is actually broken up into moving parts that shift with the areas and enemies of play, becoming more intense and feeding into strenuous points in the game to create stress and fear and doubt and sometimes.... only sometimes happiness. tl;dr N:A combines high quality production with refreshing gameplay and narrative mechanics to develop a game that not only challenges commonly held beliefs about video games as an art form but also those of reality itself (u know, typical japanese soul crushing shit) Here is a video of the director explaining a bit of his style:
  7. Electronic Music

    I wanna know what artists/bands people like in or on the periphery (pop, metal, rap, etc.) of the electronic genre. Been on this hard lately.
  8. dude fuck the beatles

    To me it felt like you came into this thread in order to make a statement, not ask a question. Main reason being the anger which I theorize is why the others took to you in the way you describe. Are you feeling okay?
  9. dude fuck the beatles

    If they suck why do you feel the need to tell everyone? People don't listen to The Beetles all the time for a reason and those that follow religiously won't be fazed by this thread.
  10. Almost got jumped; buying a gun.

    If it makes you feel better and that translates to a more secure mental health then I think it can be worth it. Maybe you are a bit paranoid, makes sense post incident to be in that state for a time, or maybe you live an unfortunate life, it happens and idk people who know nothing of you seat that away. Regardless, have you ever thought if some of your non- confrontational habits (like greeting them) actually prevent these situations from happening or if they push you towards a situation where you feel more secure wheras they would not have been baited into chasing you if you had ignored them? Jw
  11. Game of Thrones TV Show

    Are we done with the now? You could say the same for a lot of characters breaking the law or whatever, why is this special?
  12. if you click on this topic you must post

    I always liked prog music for it's quirky nature.
  13. if you click on this topic you must post

    Same here... I heard that a reason a lot of gamers (idk about you but I am one) drink soda a lot is because of the dopamine it provides for the moments when you aren't grabbing it from gaming. It might be something to think about...

  17. Psychedelics

    I've been using acid for a little bit (10 times) which was what lead to a few embarrassing threads/posts on the forum. Who else has done any?
  18. Psychedelics

    Nice try buddy but this is a serious forum for serious people!
  19. Psychedelics

    Woah! Slow down buddy! Were you talking to me or Human Tetherball? Regardless, major depression is an illness that can only be treated with medication and even then the science is still not sure where to shoot with these drugs so sometimes it does not work for some people and (often?) it does not work very well. "It is a state of mind where someone cannot appreciate sunsets." I'm sure if you release all worldly attachments maybe you could cope with the illness better but it will still be there, just maybe some triggers won't have as much of an effect. Depression that I don't have aside, I'm content with myself moment to moment but not with who and where I will be in the future so although this stuff might be a good support group/whatever I don't really need that, I just need to do things instead of nothing. (and I have been doing things a little bit lately, mainly organization) Lots of cool videos though.
  20. Psychedelics

    I've heard some studies indicating psychs can help with depression but obviously there is no consensus yet. Good warning post; I would never recommend people do it with anyone but those they trust and also in some place they are comfortable in/used to. The big issue dealing with this is when you relearn what betrayal and lies are in your trip which can lead to you sort of doubting everything -> can lead to a bad trip, etc. but do note this is not something you necessarily relearn/remember every time you take a trip nor is it necessarily something you focus on (especially if you are capable of just waving away thoughts). (just one example i can think of, of course there are probably and inumerable # of reasons why to be with ppl you like, like youll probably have more fun lol) In my case I don't get my drugs off the streets so I don't have to worry about varying dosage or being given a different drug like NBOMe (which can kill you) but be careful. (if you got it from a friend and they are into this stuff they may have ways to discern if it is lsd or not) Also, I recommend 2 weeks between trips. I haven't done anything quicker then that but that is what everyone says. The reason for this is because after your trip is over for a while your serotonin levels will be decreased but of course they come back up after a few days or weeks. The longer you wait after a trip the better your next trip, as you also forget about it over time. In my case, most of my threads/posts were at the fever end of my trip (8 hours is the prime time, technically still on till 12, after that is is hard to sleep/you think a lot). The day after taking you will feel compelled to fix/work on the parts you were "enlightened" about during your trip and as such will feel much motivation for about a week or so, and then it will slowly drain back to normal over a few months. Sometimes I would get into a semi-depressed state after a trip and other times I would be super happy or concerned. Either way this provided an opportunity for me to discover more about myself and about the world but it was also an opportunity I could never guarantee would be there forever. Living your life based on something that you can't guarantee is not healthy and I wish I had realized or been more honest to myself earlier. I can keep going on with this (and it involves a lot of other issues outside the trips) but that is something for a therapist. That said, I do not regret my decision to take... I honestly can't imagine where I would be now without it but I am trying to say that my progress did not come without its costs. Anyone who is interested in taking needs to understand this is not just "seeing pretty colors" and "becoming a bit psychotic" for 8 hours. Edit: I've never taken mushrooms but I heard they semi often create anxiety as a side effect during the trip. Definitely a lot less powerful than LSD though, and shorter. (6ish hours)
  21. Psychedelics

    I'm happy for you. At this point I mainly do it for fun rather then that feeling but I know at one point I was inclined towards it a bit. To me the feeling of growing up/going through life (multiple times) was more important than ego loss or whatever but outside that I do appreciate it academically and wish I was strong enough to let it all go.
