    Crazycrab reacted to LookingForGames in Searching for an RPG - Any suggestions welcome   
    Hi,
    Thank you for the replies and welcoming me to the forum.
    Turns out I was looking at the wrong genre.
    I looked into hack and slash and found 2 games that looked like they would be good for me: Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen and God of War.
    I really appreciate it.

    Crazycrab got a reaction from Justin11 in Best Bottled Water in your opinion   
    I'm curious to know exactly what you mean by "pure water".  I wouldn't blame anyone for thinking that pure, no additives, PH neutral, biotic free H₂O is the best water to drink, but this couldn't be further from the truth.  You can get this type of water through distillation or a condenser, the type of mechanism often found in de-humidifiers.  If you have one of these you might have noticed that there is usually a warning label that sates that the water collected in the reservoir is not suitable for drinking and with good reason, it's DISCUSTING!
     
    The truth is good drinking water is supposed to be slightly acidic because the saliva in your mouth is slightly alkaline, the "impurities" are sources of nurturance such as minerals and vitamins and many of the bacteria that breed naturally naturally in drinking water are pro-biotec and aid digestion.  Boiling water the allowing to cool is fine but hope for your sake your not drinking condensed "pure" water, it's not doing you any good whatsoever

    I can understand your confusion, you weren't here when these problems were really profound so it might seem like moderators are being a little harsh and controlling.  As someone who was here when it was it worst I promise you their not and it's nothing personal.  The General Gaming and Music sections in particular were a joke, people would just bump the same topics with generic short posts that barely relate to the topic and post the same music tracks and videos over multiple threads over and over.  We literally got the same users making about 30 posts within spans of about 10 minutes multiple times a day.  It made trying to find the most recent legitimate content an absolute nightmare, burying good threads long before their time.

    I would love some good old-fashioned tap water again. It was pretty good at our old house/city.. but then we moved out here more in the country right on a lake.
    The water is.... questionable. I wouldn't call it well water, but almost!
    You are lucky. Enjoy. 💧

    Crazycrab got a reaction from Candy Stick in Silent Hill fans can go cry in a corner...   
    NO!!!!  Really!?  The Silent Hill rumours that I and everyone else semi-sensible been saying were bullshit this entire time were in fact.... bullshit?  Well consider me spiffled!!!
     
    I've said it before and I'll say it again, this fanbase nobody but themselves to blame.  I think it's about time they finally got their head out their asses and took some responsibility for their own gullible optimism.
     
    They believed Abandoned was secretly a Silent Hill project even after Konami and even Kojima confirmed they have nothing to do with it.  I remember (and even getting some flack for) saying at the time there was nothing suggesting that this had anything to do with Silent Hill and fuck me, I was right.  The fanbase even had the nerves blame the the dev's because when they saw the viral marketing they voluntarily cherry picked it apart letting them think Abandoned was something it wasn't.  Fucking pathetic!
     
    Then some time later Boober Team confirm they are partnership with Konami and they do a hop, skip and a jump right back on that train screaming "Silent Hill!  Silent Hill!".  Then of they course they are forced to make a statement saying that there is no Silent Hill project in production back in June.  Then months later these "leaks" show up and they let themselves get wound up, AGIAN, expecting some announcement at TGS which of course, never happened.
     
    What is wrong with these people!!  The rumours of a Silent Hill game from Bloober were confirmed to be wrong months before any of the "leaks" and you still believed it.  To tell the truth, I actually commend this guy for exposing just how narrow eyed and gullible this fanbase truly is.  The fact he can post a rumour that had already been debunked months earlier and it can still such a huge amount of traction is mind blowing.  I sure as hell wouldn't be sorry for it, I'd be like:
     

     
    WAKE UP!!!!!  Until Konami confirms otherwise there are no Silent Hill projects in production.  End of story!
     
    Next time there is a Silent Hill rumour, ignore it.  So when it inevitably doesn't pan out you might come out of it not looking like a bunch of fools.

    Crazycrab got a reaction from Candy Stick in General Gaming Discussion   
    I think the main reason they didn't show showcase any Silent Hill games is because they are (most likely) not publishing any!
     
    @Candy Stick I'm only saying this to help, you seriously need to stop!  It seems like every time Konami starts to stand up you think their about to announce a Silent Hill game and you get all worked up.  They they just fart into their chair, pretend it doesn't stink and sit back down!  Outside of blind optimism from fans like yourself I have not seen any activity that suggests that any project under the Silent Hill IP is even in pre-production, let alone about to be announced at TGS, TGA, E3, Gamescom or anywhere!  Yet everyone pisses themselves at every opportunity when it comes to rumours about this damn game, the latest being these "screenshots" from Bloober Team's already debunked "Silent Hill 2 Remake":
     
      
     
    IT'S JUST SOME GUY STARING IN A MIRROR!  But it seems like the only scenario where such a one of a kind dramatic moment could happen is a Silent Hill project right? Even that's assuming the screenshot is genuine which it almost certainly isn't.  I'd call it a joke but it really isn't funny anymore.  PLEASE wake up and start smelling this bullshit for what it is.

    I selected all because they all have the same fundamental problem, their all greed over everything else.  I agree with @Heatman, it's borderline pointless even discussing them anymore.  We all know that their same games every year, we all know that loaded with bullshit monetisation and we all know the fanbase will buy them anyway.  To hell with them.

    Crazycrab reacted to Kane99 in Sony FINALLY have their own Pro-controller!   
    For sure, if I had the money to get one of them, I probably would. But right now I'm using a previously $80 controller from PowerA that I use on PC, their pro controller. It's a great controller that I think has gone down in price in recent memory. I'm surprised it hasn't started to go bad on me, most of my Xbox controllers break down on me within a year or two. I have two of these pro controllers, one I use on my Xbone and another for my PC. It's called the PowerA Fusion. They also sell other controllers now for Xbox, Playstation and the Switch as well.

    Well since I am a Vampire, I use Blue Light to illuminate the room because natural light burns my skin.  I have other choices of course like red, green and everything in between but I just think blue is cool, calm and emphasises my lack of hue.  In blue I can easily hide because in that light everyone looks like a corpse!

    Crazycrab reacted to NightmareFarm in Top 5 favourite gaming rivalries?   
    Rivalries are very enjoyable in video games since they are recurring anti-heroes or villains who have a personal connection to the player. These recurring conflicts between two acquainted characters make for very interesting drama and keep you wanting to see how it resolves(like if the rival joins your side or you end up killing the rival). Which would you say are your favourite?
    My list:
    1 - Dante & Vergil(Devil May Cry)
    2 - Yuri & Flynn(Tales of Vesperia)
    3 -  Velvet & Artorius(Tales of Berseria)
    4 - Naked Snake & The Boss(Metal Gear Solid 3)
    5 - Cole & Kessler(inFAMOUS)
    Honourable Mentions: Delsin & Augustine(inFAMOUS Second Son), Sora & Riku(Kingdom Hearts), Squall and Seifer(Final Fantasy VIII), Basch & Gabranth(Final Fantasy XII), Solid Snake & Liquid Snake(Metal Gear Solid)
