AureliusofPhoenix

A Cold Reality, Male, 21, from Masstatustetts

Hot take: Bran Stark should've died when Jaime Lannister pushed him out the window as a kid. His POV is the most boring in ASOIAF. Dec 8, 2019 at 12:38 AM

      Loving the Fallout: Dust mod. NV has started CTD-ing again and that's infuriating, but hey Dust is fun.

        This is why I hate the series as it stands today. If I have to crash every hour or so and worry about corrupting save games every five minutes it loses all semblance of fun. It becomes more about torture.

        @TorontRayne Hmm. To continue Squigly's status and what you said there, maybe that's how we can get away with torture. Make them play the Beth Fallout games, modded till they crash repeatedly.

        @SquiglyContiello at least I’m not alone in that. I’ve gotta get a thesis written by November for my American Government course; I’m thinking of doing it on the Populist/Democratic Party, and the decline of the whole idea of classical liberalism in favor of the party becoming more conservative.

      When you visit your friend at work only to find it's her day off so you drag your sad ass to Starbucks, conveniently located in the store.

        I Jumped in and tried to mediate by contacting them both separately, and I got my friend to admit that the comment was pretty fucked up and she deleted it. Then today I tried to visit her at her work but she wasn't there, so I got a coffee and went home. Recently texted her to see if she's feeling better; she wasn't in a good place when she made the comment and I hope she's ok.

        If anyone is wondering neither friend was the girl I usually mention; she and I aren't really on speaking terms after an argument, so I'm also accepting applications for a best friend. Should be down with me randomly ranting about Caesar and how fucking awesome he was and me occasionally playfully hitting on you

      In an unrelated note, why did General Lee, a man opposed to slavery and secession, when offered the position of Union general go like "nah"

        @TorontRayne I'm currently reading A History of the Civil War and the issues it outlines are broad. I mentioned slavery because it's all anyone mentions; I know that the South wanted to become its own nation out from under the Federal yoke, lower tariffs on their cotton, etc. I was more talking about General Lee, who disagreed with the South's cause but still sided with his home state when it left the Union.

        So it's the idea that he'd choose his state over his country that you're asking about?
        They couldn't communicate like we do. Everyone you know well lives near you. Sure, people write letters to old friends in other places but that's no phone. He grew up here, he has friends and family here. Those people matter to him. I think he even knew the South would lose the war.

        @Squadcar I suppose you're right on that count. I dunno, it's odd how many West Point graduates were generals in the war; how many classmates fought directly against one another, as though statism overruled academy camaraderie. Funny note: U.S. Grant was Lee's subordinate during the Mexican War; Lee chewed him out for his dress. I don't think it's a coincidence that Grant showed up to Appomattox dressed like a scrub.

        @Norzan I'm playing as the Julii (The red Romans), and I've destroyed Gaul as a nation with the leadership of my top general, Decimus "The Cruel" (game's nickname, not mine). Decimus took over the army when his grandfather died and the new family head was shown to be incompetent (my fault technically)

        If you ever play with the green Romans, prepare for a lengthy war with Egypt. This is the faction that grows the fastest, to the point it starts to grow faster than you.

        @Norzan I'll keep that in mind. Thanks. So far Spain has been the biggest pain in the ass for me; the Gauls have been reduced to 33 roaming nomads, with no settlements in their control, and yet they still won't assimilate through diplomacy. So honestly, this game's pretty historically accurate in terms of Gaulic pride (pronounced: de-loo-zhun)

      I just finished the “Resist” ending of Far Cry 5 and it’s so dark and nihilistic. I fucking love it.

        Aren't both the endings pretty much mirror images of each other though?

        @Ayelander I mean, in essence yes; the vehicle for the nihilism is different however. In the “Walk Away” ending the sheriff says they’re going to get the military and take Joseph Seed down, but Only You plays on the radio: screen cuts to black, implying that The Deputy killed everyone in the car; Jacob Seed’s brainwashing took root. In “Resist” Montana gets nuked and Joseph uses the Deputy to rebuild his “family”.
