sgamer82: I just got home from pencil & paper role playin games (Wednesday & thrusday are my D&D nights) Sept 21, 2017 4:08:27 GMT
doctorpeggy: And then there's me, probably the only person with access to a computer who still uses notebooks and pencils for almost everything. A lot of times, I even write things out before typing them up. Sept 21, 2017 10:41:27 GMT
Mikauzoran: My outlines and notes are still on paper, so when I think of "getting something on paper", it's that first stage of writing where I'm brainstorming, and that's still on physical paper. Sept 21, 2017 11:50:25 GMT
NewUserNamesAreHard: My thinking wasn't that people don't write things on paper anymore. It was the idea that the phrase doesn't always mean that the medium of recording someone's thoughts will actually be paper. Sometimes the phrase is literal and sometimes it isn't. Sept 21, 2017 12:17:45 GMT
NewUserNamesAreHard: Personally, hearing the president of my company announce that we going paperless made me want to cry. Some jobs are hard (read impossible) to do without paper. Engineering is one of them. Sept 21, 2017 12:23:03 GMT
sgamer82: Most of my writing is done on a phone app, Jotterpad. I wanted to have something on hand to write whenever but couldn't carry around a pass and pen/cil. Sept 21, 2017 18:35:37 GMT
sgamer82: In other news, as part of the event going on at Humble Bundle, any horror fans can pick up the first Outlast game and its dlc, Whistleblower, completely free for a couple days. Sept 21, 2017 18:36:27 GMT
sgamer82: www.humblebundle.com/store/outlast-deluxe Outlast features an intrepid reporter making his way through an old, recently reactivated asylum, to uncover the bizarre events within. Sept 21, 2017 18:37:15 GMT
sgamer82: His only tool on this mission, which involves dodging madmen, killers, cannibals and mad doctors, is your video camera (it has a light!) If horror and asylum didn't top you off, this is not for the faint of heart. Sept 21, 2017 18:38:45 GMT
kkrazy256: Free!? *slightly salty even though i bought and played it like three months ago* It's a really good horror game, i played it twice. So if you want a good scare, definitely try it out ^^ Sept 22, 2017 5:48:32 GMT
kkrazy256: Still trying to get through Outlast 2 though, it...just doesn't hold the same excitement for me Sept 22, 2017 5:49:22 GMT
Mikauzoran: Is it anything like Fatal Frame? Sept 22, 2017 12:05:16 GMT
kkrazy256: I don't think so? I've never played Fatal Frame, but Outlast isn't supernatural and you can't deal any damage to the people chasing you. You can only run or hide. I think you can at least damage the ghosts chasing you in Fatal Frame. Sept 22, 2017 14:54:49 GMT
sgamer82: There is a BIT of a supernatural element to it, but it's mostly more sci-fi-ish than fantasy Sept 23, 2017 16:05:19 GMT
sgamer82: it seems that the Humble Bundle site is doing this as part of an end of summer sale. Not sure how much longer it's due to go for or if this is event he last one. Sept 23, 2017 16:29:08 GMT
sgamer82: Either way, as of this post www.humblebundle.com/store/outlast-deluxe Outlast still has 2 1/2 hours left to it. Before that wa Psychonauts and Oddworld. What came before that I dont' know because It hink I was late picking up on it Sept 23, 2017 16:29:36 GMT
sgamer82: www.humblebundle.com/store/search?filter=onsale&sort=discount - stuff just generally on sale at the moment Sept 23, 2017 16:32:09 GMT
sgamer82: sidenote I'm going to try and get my prompt in before the day is out. I'm in finishing touches mode mainly now. Sept 23, 2017 16:39:32 GMT
Wyz: Just finished and submitted my prompt (^_^) Sept 24, 2017 20:27:11 GMT
