My philosophy...
The first rule is:
You look good.


He can't Google stuff when he's being recorded for a podcast or QL; for all we know he spends the rest of his day looking up stuff that pops into his head and we just never hear about it.

Although I'm sure he prefers people explaining things to him in person. Didn't he want to learn about quantum mechanics or something but gave up trying to teach it to himself after reading the first two paragraphs on Wikipedia?

Yes and then he discussed it with Vinny over three different pieces of content saying "It doesn't make sense to me, so it can't be real"

gently caress, I miss my MX Revolution. What a wonderful mouse that was. Second only to the MX1000.
I fear losing my MX Revolution keyboard eventually. It's so good, still kicking after 11ish years, and I've worn almost all the letters off the keys, it's fallen on the ground a hundred or more times, it's had all sorts of stuff spilled on it, but it never stopped working. The mouse on the other hand, I had two of them and the batteries eventually died in both of them, was great while they worked though. I switched to a Logitech gaming mouse, I forget which exactly, that takes a AA battery which I use Eneloops for and it's great.

Edit: this seems to be the mouse, it's a good one

Also, is wireless the reason you double-space like you're still writing on a typewriter?
It's how they taught it in computer class when I was a kid and it became habit. It's always hilarious when dipshits like you try to burn people over it like it matters at all though.

Double spacing when typing on a computer was actually the accepted English standard back in the day. It's one of the rules that eventually got repealed but I absolutely remember having to type papers in High school where that was the accepted format.

Please keep in mind that White Wolf is run by a buncha super edgy chuds nowadays and the newest edition of the tabletop RPG literally caused an international incident by incorporating the murder and oppression of LGBT in Chechnya into their lore and going "It's vampires"

Aw, I was expecting to be annoyed too, but it's actually kind of a nice moment when Abby googles what 2000 BC was like and they come together to figure out which side of it the renaissance was on. Everyone learned something.

I want dan on these quick looks, but I also want someone patient who actually knows what they're talking about on them as well. Some of the best content with Dan being Dan is when Austin Walker is there and Austin actually engages with him and explains stuff in an understandable way.

I really just want Austin and Robert Zacny to join Giant Bomb.

On this note, the Blue Bombing where Austin guested and they talked about what Dan considers a gaming masterpiece and whether he could fight a wolf is exquisite. https://www.giantbomb.com/shows/blu...t-03/2970-11884

White Wolf no longer exists and were dissolved because of that incident. Vampire is handled by different people these days.

it's also worth noting that that version of White Wolf featured almost no actual old WW employees except for people who hadn't been with the company for decades for good reason and most of the people who worked at WW and don't suck are with Onyx Path, which licenses out WW stuff to make their own books

the whole thing is a mess

Vampire is an empty shell of a licence and the magic of Bloodlines was because it was Troika.

If Cara Ellison is working on it that's a plus though

But I remember the fella who told me. Big lad. Arms as thick as oak trees, a stunning collection of scars, nice eye patch. A REAL therapist he was. Er wait. Maybe it was rapist?



Apparently the only other thing those devs have done is Blacklight Retribution.

Hopefully it's a lot better than that.

I mean, it's the same head writer as the last game and of the three games Troika made two were buggy messes (and I'd argue Arcanum is such a mess it ruins the game) and one actively sucked out loud

I am somehow confident that level of quality can be met

That's not an entirely unreasonable response.
