and i'm not hot
IIRC, we didn't have the stalking threads up when you had your pic posted.
And yes, you're hot.
Good going on the Final Fantasy shoot-down, veg! I've had it. I don't even like those games.
THAT'S RIGHT. BITE ME. I HAD BETTER THINGS TO PLAY.
Like Star Control II and Theme Park.
But J, you're so smart -- how can you have so little taste?
I should ask you the same question.
Seriously, though, have you played Star Control II?
If it requires hand-eye coordination, I can't play it.
Nor can I. Another reason I hate video games.
No, in this game, you explore the stars for minerals to build up your space ship. While doing so, you encounter a variety of different alien races, all of whom are intricately involved with each other. You have to play the perfect diplomat through all sorts of complex and absurd situations in order to (tada, you guessed it) save the whole universe!
The writing is endlessly entertaining, the different alien races are incredibly well-thought out and designed, the graphics are incredible for their time (as is the sound), and the game is just so f-ing VAST.
On top of this, you get to fight others melee-style in really cool starships. So everyone gets their money's worth.
I can't believe so many people missed out on this!
