Indeed.

I have changed my name a time or two, but wont do so again.

Some things should be common sense. Jeff's contact information isn't hard to find, but nonetheless I'm glad to hear the ban is temporary.

No point in explaining that the plot and characters can be of greater value than the graphics since some people depend on pictures to understand a story.

Taskmaker was one of the very first RPGs I played, and I eventually did find a copy of it for Mac. Unfortunately it was a demo and can no long be registered. Oh well, was nice to get to play at least half of it again.

He didn't speculate who did the breaking up, and said that both wanted to keep up a friendship, so issues with women much?

"Cut off" sounds like to me at least that you don’t have phone or Internet communication? If you do it's worth at least trying to keep up a long distance relationship.

Video Game Addiction in General
Shaper
Member # 5437
Profile #79
Doctors very rarely suggest even nutrition changes. When a family member of mine got cancer not one of about 10 doctors even mentioned such simple things as cutting back on sugar.

Clients come to me telling me that their doctor gave them this or that drug, and though it solved one problem it caused others. Doctors are far too quick to give prescriptions to people, but this is mostly because a lot of people want a quick fix. Nutritional changes and natural forms of medicine tend to take more time to resolve pain than popping a pill a couple times a day.

Also, Kel, often doctors wont tell people the side effects of drugs unless asked and hesitate even when asked, and most people don’t think to ask. I asked a couple of my family member's doctors why they didn’t tell her the potential side effects, and was told it was because they didn't want to create phantom symptoms.

Video Game Addiction in General
Shaper

The term addiction is often incredibly misused in the case of video games. Though some people do avoid social interaction and daily responsibilities most that are labeled as addicted because they spend every second of free time playing games. Also, keeping to oneself is only a problem if it causes abnormal social interactions or feelings of isolation. There's nothing inherently wrong with spending most of one's time by then self.

Adults that don't take care of daily responsibilities like work and family for computer games would have likely just found another outlet for that focus if not the games, such as gambling, TV, junk food, weight, and so on. Almost anything can be called an addiction.

I honestly see no difference between watching TV and playing WoW or Runescape. In the case of SW games one could justify it as productive due to the amount of reading involved.

All this talk of Skribbane makes me want to play through E3 again.

May your year and many after be filled with plenty of fresh Skribbane and warm cookies, Alorael.

Recommend a Spiderweb game for a Newbie?? in General

I'd personally recommend Avernum 1 or 2 as a first game. If you like the Geneforge series then the first one was best, imo.

Download a few demos, and see what you like best.

1. 16
2. 18
3. 16
4. 16
5. I haven't been married!
6. 2
7. Yes

Everyone matures at a different rate. I don't see how being under 18 means that one can't have a serious and productive relationship. America happens to be one of the few cultures that sets such a high age for adulthood.

I put two for serious relationships because if they feel serious or feel like love to you then they probably are at the time at least. My most recent was a long distance relationship that lasted over two years. That ended simply because that was all it was going to be, not because I didn’t love him.

Edit: late edit due to internal server error...

I don't really play on the computer when I have friends over, but my family has seen me play SW games.

My brother thinks the graphics are horrible, so he wont give the games a chance. My mom and older sister feel that I'm too old for games, and my nephew really likes SW games but dislikes the amount of reading.

My major is biological sciences. Though school is off and on I really enjoy studying all aspects of science and medicine.

I'm not very good with foreign languages and most forms of art/music, but science comes naturally for me.

Geneforge's plot doesn't leave a ton of room to elaborate beyond what Jeff has already written in the series. The storyline is pretty straightforward, and honestly I don’t really foresee BoG having many designers.

I grew up with SimCity, SimAnt, and the Myst series, so If I'm playing something other than SW games it's probably one of those.

It's more about content than number of posts. I've yet to see you outright spam.

I hit 1000 posts in about four months and ranked second in the posts per month for several months my first year without getting canned or banned. I would have topped the charts, but I was for the most part unable to out-spam Thuryl :P
