power stone was pretty fun... maybe not 50 USD fun

The Power Stone arcade machine was my JAM and I loved the poo poo out of it. I pirated the version on Dreamcast (because how could you NOT) and it was enjoyable but a very weird departure from what I remembered of the cabinet experience.

iím actually curious what the rates are because i will admit i assumed hindu was the national language and english is a most common second, like english/spanish in the states

Yeah, that wikipedia Sagebrush shared is surprising to me.

I've never been to India, but I've heard that English is the defacto national language. I expected the % of English speakers in India to be higher than 12%. Maybe just the wealthier people learn English.

having your webcam above the monitor with a chess game open instead of the one with teams is really great for making it look like youíre super paying attention. until you blunder a piece and start swearing.

Urdu is spoken by under 10% of the country and the same is true of sindi, the majority in pakistan is still punjabi.

shipbreaker is good. I sunk a solid 15h in when it first entered early access. is there a lot that's new since then? I was planning to wait for 1.0 before diving back in.

the developer's office is a few blocks from my apartment, and it has a couple of references to the neighbourhood hidden in it. I'd be lying if I said it hasn't endeared it to me a bit.
