60 tagsMan, this Noita game looks really good. Hrrrngh.
But I can't really fit it into my budget right now. 😕😒
🤔 Okay I have an idea.
Ban the Wikus Auction
Here are the rules:
Reply with a number of days. This is the number of days that I will go without making a single post or reply in the chatty. A self-imposed ban. If I post anyway, then the mods can ban me for 180 days. Tagging is still allowed.
The bidding starts at 1 day. You can only add 1 day at a time to the bid.
The bidding ends if the highest bid reaches 90 days or if the thread is 1 hour away from expiring. Whereupon I will post a reply to signify the "winner" of the auction.
The "winner" buys me a Steam copy of the game. If I don't get a copy of the game within 24 hours of the announcement, then the deal is null and void.

I’ve got so many damn board games I’ve only played once or even never. COVID ain’t helping with that!! Still, I can’t help getting new ones.
I think it’s funny that I play a ton of D&D 5e but only own a single physical book. But I have the entire library on D&D Beyond! That’s one hobby where going all digital is massively more convenient.
38 tagsSo I finally watched Hamilton.
The first half felt rushed I frankly I'm not in the mood for this pro America bullshit. I like the King George character...
Second half towards the end:
I enjoyed the second half very much.
35 tags"We sort of had to collectively admit we were wrong on the premise that you will be happiest if you work on something you personally want to work on the most," Valve developer Robin Walker tells Keighley, soundly rejecting the ethos that Valve has publicly carried as a torch for some time. The studio used a new Half-Life project as a way to focus the entire studio—even though, as we've previously reported, that project began life with more modest expectations in terms of length and content.
Turns out a rudderless collective with no hierarchy or management struggles to accomplish work that requires years of unsexy grind and coordination between lots of people with different individual goals.
