Banter and Chit-Chat! / Life and what's Living for
« on: December 11, 2018, 05:49:58 AM »
Ok, this topic is kind of sappy I guess, About ten years ago I ran into a few folk, who had a web site called Infamous Adventures. It evolved to Infamous Quests.  I met some folks who liked, old sierra,or Lucas Arts games. Just old classic games that I enjoyed playing. Just a bunch of nerds/geeks who like me enjoyed the former... Now some years gone, These cool folks made a couple I enjoy..for almost free. QFI/Order of the Thorne. Sure, they were not free, and cost all who gave time,some dollars,who put time and effort into them to make money. But they brought me back to my childhood, to a sense of adventure. One that I was happy to support and pay for. Maybe I am a old guy, for That one Moment I had my childhood back, it's not like today's shit games, with violence/kill everyone. With the games I speak of, there is a goal, with humor and fun that is sorely lacking in games today.  TO all that still loves adventure games I salute you, and I will support you, monetary or however i can.   Sorry for the Rant, but Thank-you, Steve, Shawn,Jason. Jen, everyone who made an effort to surprise and revive life, to a genre that will will never die.  Thanks guys and gals.... Chadly.....

I have never been to an iN' and Out. Chick Fil A, Five Guys, Popeyes are a treat for me cause I live in a small town. We have to travel about an hour to the above listed places.  Plus if I ate there regualrly I;d be fat as a cow and get tired of them. Moderation is key, as I'm 40 and can't eat greasy fried food like I did when i was 20. Lol

« on: December 04, 2018, 12:21:21 PM »
As the topic line suggests, I am hungry for good 'ol American unhealthy fast food. So what's your favorite? I am torn between three: Chick Fil A (Don't care about their religion or politics, they make the best chicken), Burger King, and lastly Wendys. BK whoppers are the best. Wendy's chili and the Baconator, plus frostys! Damn now I;m really hungry. Also Taco Bell is a favorite. (However they should call it taco hell sometimes. Lol.

  Five Guys Burgers and Fries in also Awesome.

Yeah baby. When this game comes out I'm definately buying it. Now if we could get SpaceVenture to release I'd be a happy man. Oh and Star Citizen releasing some time this decade would be nice too.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Old Sierra game nostalgia
« on: December 01, 2018, 09:42:27 AM »
As the header lists, I recently got a hankering to play old Sierra games from my youth. So I bought them all on GOG.com, and played them in a marathon. Kings Quests, Space Quests, Police Quests, Hero's Quests (oops I mean Quest for Glory), and a few obscure classics like Codename Iceman (frustrating), Gold Rush, Conquest of the Longbow and Finally Conquest if Camelot. It took awhile, but was fun. The 80's/90's was the golden era of adventure games. Today;s game son't even come close. Yes they are graphically superior, better sound, etc, but are limited to FPS or third person. I truly enjoy games like QFI/Order of the Thorne for their homage to the former games snd wisg=h more were made. But that;s just wishful thinking as games have evolved.  Chadly. 8)

Ok. now the closest I have ever come to living like someone 200 years ago is this, about ten years ago in my county in NW PA there was a micro-burst Storm, Basically like a tornado. It knocked out all power to the county and most of north weastern PA, for about two weeks. Now back then I lived in the country a rurual setting. With no electricity I had no heat, lights, or power to run my well pump for water. So i lived by candle light, got water from the river to flush my toilet, and drinking water came from a natural spring near my house. I cooked on a Coleman stove, like one you would use for camping, Some folks had gas generators but not me. When I went to work we rung sales with paper receipts. To get food I drove a couple of counties over for dry goods and ice. The fridge lasted a coupke days before I had to throw most stuff out. For heat I used a kerosene heater and my fireplace, It lasted for like 10to 14 days.  So imagine going camping and "roughng it".  It was an experience to say the least. For phone service the telephone company used a gas generator to power the local box, and somebody stole it! Now granted the county I lived in was small about 65000 people. Folks acted like it was the end of the world, with no power, tv, or internet. Lol.  So if you like nature like me and enjoy camping out, thats how it was.  Almost like the tv series The Walking Dead, without the Zombies or murders.    Chadly.

@caldric I have not as of yet. However I have read and watched many movies/tv shows. Enough that frighten me. The Stand by Stephen King is an example.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Survival or Things we Take for Granted
« on: November 30, 2018, 01:04:19 PM »
   Hi all. 

    Here is a little essay on things we take for granted. Every day i get up, I turn on my coffee maker, then i get in the shower.  What if one day I got up and there was so electricity? No running water? No natural gas to heat my house. I could'nt go to the store to buy groceries, gasoline for the car, etc.  Think about it. All we take for granted. No power means no fresh clean water, no sewage removal, no heat, no food, no medicine for illness. In a NY minute we would revert to a Agriculture society over-night as it was 200 years ago.  Suddenly people would deforest the woods to burn for heat and light. Clean water that's something we really take for granted, yet 2,000,000,000 today don't have it. Basic social norms disappear. It would be law of the jungle. People would kill for a loaf of bread, a gallon of gasoline, medicine, or just about anything. Yes there have been many books, tv shows, about movies about what i'm talking about.
   My question is this: Are you prepared for the above? Myself, I know how to hunt, fish, start a fire without the use of a lighter or matches. I can build a structure to keep me out if the elements. I know basic first-aid. I can Survive for awhile at least.  I used to laugh at the shows on tv about "Dooms-Day preppers." However I know some folks that have years of supplies put-away, that have self-contained bunkers, stocked with supplies/guns.  In a minute like in the movies we could be hit with a virus that kills off 99.9% of the human race. or plants, animals, or some kind of eco-disaster.
    Now I;m not trying to frighten anyone, but it makes me wonder why in this country (USA) we spend billions on weight-loss supplements, entertainment, military, and not on infrastructure, Space Exploration, renewable energy etc. What happends when the last drop of Oil is pumped from the ground, or coal dug from the earth?  I'm pretty sure that the Earth will survive us as humans, as it's been around for 4.5 billion years. Is it human arrogance to think that we can actually end all life on this planet? We have only been here for a fraction of time. Yeah, im sure the Earth will be here long after we go the way of the Dinosaurs....Chadly. 8)

   The point is that I am happy for the small things I have: my health, the health of my family, that I have food, a place to reside, etc.  I used to get pissed that I couldn't go on vacation to the beach, buy a sports car, buy some trivial things. The older I get the more Thankful I am for simple things.

« on: November 28, 2018, 10:08:26 AM »
Ok. That's good to know. It be nice if they posted that. I feel terrible what nasty backers have said about the project and the Two Guys. Plus it;s just Fucking terrible to tear down a man who has had personal problems/cancer.  I just want the game to be good and come out. And I wish Scott all best in his fight with prostate cancer,  Chadly.

Banter and Chit-Chat! / SpaceVenture a Two Guys Game
« on: November 25, 2018, 08:50:23 PM »
Hey all.

   Anybody else wondering when and if this game is coming out. This game is nearly 7 years in the making, and im wondering if it will be all that was promised.  I loved the Space Quest games by Sierra and Scott Murphy/Mark Crowe a.k.a. The Two guys from Andromeda.  While this game isn't Space Quest 7, it is I feel the Spiritual Successor.  Over on their Kickstarter page comments from backers have gotten REally Nasty. Here are some of my thoughts: 1) What was Scott Murphy's involvement? Did he write the story and dialog? He has been absent from any updates for years. Apparently the poor guy has major health issues. 2)Updates are few and don't say much. 3) some backers are so frustrated that they are now rooting for this game to fail, sadly. Me I just want the game to be released.  Any thoughts??                       Chadly. :) 8)

« on: November 22, 2018, 01:25:02 PM »
Hi all. Hey if anyone is interested i have a bunch old old sierra games. (including boxes, manuals and disks.) I am house cleaning and figured if anyone was interested I Will Give them to You. I only ask for shipping costs. I'd rather give them to a collector them throw them in a landfill, or burn them. If interested give me a DM, for more details. Thanks Chadly.

                                                                                                                    P.S.
                                                                                                                         Yes I could attempt to sell them on
                                                                                                                      ebay, but don't feel like it.
