Level-Based Ranking System Blows

WP_001693

Lately I’ve been immersing myself in an excellent tactical game called Wargame: European Escalation that comes pretty close to the awesome fun I had with World in Conflict back in the day. It’s a shame that it has such a small player pool, but being initially complex and confusing I guess it can’t be helped. Wargame: AirLand Battle is coming out this month, so go buy it. With this advertisement given, here’s a little something that ticked me off about Wargame:EE, and several other games that have adapted the same kind of system in their multiplayer.

Some 50 Questions Thing

sanae_and_raymoo

I happened to come across this kind of thing that apparently went around some blogger circles earlier this year, and since I’m such an attention whore and bored due to recent unemployment I went and filled it out. Works better than any kind of About-page I could write up.

About Mass Murder (Again), Media, and The Old Gang

The recent events in Connecticut and the subsequent media reaction gave me a few things to wrap my thoughts around, so here we go. In short, I’m getting disgusted and tired of how the conventional media handles these miserable events. Long story short, here’s a good video on what I’m talking about:

About Forced Socializing, Online Games, and Finns

One thing I’ve noticed about the online games these days that pretty much every single one of them expects you to be an advocate of socializing online. You want friends, right? You pathetic little shit. You want to be part of a nerd cliché. No, don’t try to argue back. Take this guild/friend/corp system. You will want to deal with people, and pay for doing so. Because we’re telling you to.

About Men’s Rights Activism, Neutrality, And 80′s Metal Bands

Since ol’ sat-chin ended up with the amusing thought that I’m a Men’s Right Activist (MRA), I thought I might as well elaborate here to prevent further misunderstandings without having do deal with twitter’s annoying limitations.

History Repeating – Opinions and the Nerd Scene

This used to be a 1000-word rant, but at the end of the day only a few paragraphs of it had any real points, so have an abridged version.

Happy Midsummer Post: Meanwhile in Western USSR

Last Thursday our department at the box factory had its monthly staff meeting. As the department is small, everyone from the management to the production line personnel attend. Other new temp guys were happy to chat away while sitting in the far end corner of the room, but to me these meetings are a great way to gather some intel to plan my future activities with.

PSA: Reddit Referrals Banned

As announced on twitter, I have banned all referral traffic from Reddit indefinitely. People ask me why. Let’s think of it this way: If I was a shopkeeper, I’d want junkies, drunks, hobos, and other trash to stay the hell out of my store. Poor shopkeepers may have no choice, but I sure as hell do – human trash has no business on my backyard.

Hell, do you ever even need a reason to ban Redditors?

The Gap Society Ramble and The Lament of the Pseudo-Nerds

One lazy Sunday I wake up to a call from my mother. I already knew what it was going to be about. The bastard that shot a couple people dead in Hyvinkää also enjoyed playing airsoft, video games, and was kind of a recluse. I know mom, don’t worry. I don’t really feel like killing people. All guns I own are toys, and I very well recognize the fundamental differences between polygon model Russians and real people. I appreciate life, and wouldn’t ever think of being in the position to decide on someone else’s death. I’m actually a pacifist, but of course not many people believe that with my hobbies being what they are.

An Early Summer Day’s Stroll

Being bored out of my mind as usual and having to go do a little firewood hauling, I thought I might as well take pics for a pointless meta post while I’m at it.
