I've decided to go for it, made an account and downloaded these two free games having previously heard that BASS is a good one. When I had Linux, I'd been playing some Monkey Island on ScummV and it was by no means difficult to set up, but I've got to admit - GoG does make a neatly wrapped package o...

I've experienced moderately twitchy muscles before after exercising or during the morning (or day) after I went on a drinking binge. Nothing remarkable. Around August I visited the Dutch Naval Museum in Den Helder and while inspecting the interiors of a '50 Destroyer, I hit my head against a low bu...

[edit]Oh wait it is. See my avater? It just gives a message that the upload fails. It's still uploaded. It seems to have been properly resized as well.

I've tried gif and jpg, 75x75 or less image sizes and I keep getting the "Invalid File" message. Anyone else here not able to change their avatars?

Like many before me in this thread, I have also had problems with that nasty twitching eyelid. Other than that, seeing how I go to gym regularly I've pretty much experienced muscle spasms in almost every one of muscles, though most frequently in the thighs and chest, sometimes shoulders. I don't thi...

It's nice looking art though, I especially like that one with the guy moving over a narrow bridge of rocks.

Currently enjoying the new casual game Bejeweled Twist (almost daily) and I've started playing Icewind Dale 2 again, hoping to finally get past that dreaded Dragon's Eye and finish the game, been going to and back from it forever.

I think that to further the goal of rescuing Imoen, a temporary alliance with the Shadow Thieves isn't against a paladin's code of ethics. The duties you are assigned to do all have to do with eradicating the vampires, an evil species, so your actions are justified. While that does hold true as the...

Well I'm glad I don't seem to be the only one who finds there is something flawed in the pock pocket skill system that is present in games using the Infinity engine. BuckGB and fable had pretty imaginative ideas on how to manage this problem differently, though I can see why the game creators might ...

Pick pocketing in cRPGs

So I've been playing some IWD2 and my thief got a level up. Naturally, I invested those skill points into thief skills without thinking. Then it hit me: why do I always put those points into pick pocket skill when I hardly ever (probably never, really) use it? Well why don't I use it? The best way t...

Weird, I don't recall any of that happening to me, though I did that conversion thing only once and it was way back. I don't know what will happen to that Nightmare game you had, but I assume you won't be able to play the LoD Nightmare because you couldn't have completed it on the Normal difficulty ...
