        @Jonforum Their argument is that Steam isn't a subscription based service, and that you buy a game as you would anything else, thus granting yout the right to resell it. In the eyes of the court, you own your Steam games just as much as you own pretty much everything else you've ever bought.

        It's a good thing for consumers, but it may encourage devs and publishers to turn their games into actual services\subscriptions.

        Fungi have a symbiotic relationship with many plants and animals, are some of the best ecological decomposers, and are many of our most important medicines (antibiotics). They also are the kingdom responsible for booze...so. Pretty cool little dudes.

        But there are many many mods you can get for it. More than sims 3. I have like 500 custom content files alone. There are some mods I actually don't remeber the name but one was about screepy toddlers that murder people, one was about you murdering people and the one I remember the name of is wicked woohoo lmao. Use that only if you want to make weird videos of your sims

        I really like making characters, so the Sims appeals to me greatly. I only wish it wasn't so clean or utopian. Bad or evil actions in the game are just goofy and comedic. At least being a vampire is fun. You can actually force other sims to let you drink their blood, and can even enter their homes without permission so as to feed upon them.

        @KaiWeWi LOL! That reminds me of the time I was put on new meds, and decided to go to the shop despite my head feeling funny and floaty. I saw what I thought was a cat, but it wasn't moving. I went up to it, and started stroking it. After about a minute, I realised it wasn't a cat at all, but a large dandelion growing up out of the pavement. I stopped storking it and hoped no one saw. xD

        @Philosophus Vagus I'm not even sure why I was thinking of buying it to begin with. It's not as if I've enjoyed any of the Metal Gear games. I also dislike the vast majority of simulation type games. So, I really have no idea why I thought I'd like to play a courier simulator with a bit of shooting, and a few sci-fi tropes, sprinkled on top. Probably just swept up in the insane amount of hype.

        I guess the Dreamlands, with its mix of horror and whimsical fantasy, doesn't sit well with what people expect of Lovecraft. On the other hand, you also have alien species, such as the Yithians, and the ELder Things, who aren't gods at all, but sci-fi civilisations. I love it all, to be honest. The Otherworld in my setting, known as Twilight, is influenced by the Dreamlands.

        @The Stranger 'The' Feast of the Dead (celebrated in lots of countries) is 2nd November, called "All Souls Day" when people visit graves, etc. Halloween was originally just the eve of "All Hallows" i.e. All Saints Day. & you were supposed to stay indoors because that night the souls of the day could wander around.

        @Kes It originally was linked to a specific phase of the moon in ireland, I believe. The Church eventually changed it to the 31st of October in an attempt to assimilate ancient beliefs for the locals, and made it about departed saints. The other stuff, such as ancestor veneration, the thinning of the divide between our world and the otherside, never really went away though.

        "Kylo makes me imagine a cat wielding a lightsaber" That's the idea :p I'm naming my future cats after characters I like. Misto is short of Magical Mr Mistoffelees from Cats, Kylo's Kylo Ren (as you guessed) and Deano/Mox are after Dean Ambrose/Jon Moxley, who is one of my favourite wrestlers.

        Is Disgaea a JRPG? If so, last JRPG I played was that Tik-Tok game, which is super cute. I don't enjoy the vast majority of JRPGs, though. I was talking more about the likes of Divinity Original Sin 2, Tyranny, etc. I'm okay with isometric RPGs, but love first person games much, much more.

        All of that, yes! Seriously, laundry room etiquette is very clearly not universal. No one cleans the lint trip after they dry. People spill detergent and leave it. Cause it's not slippery, and you aren't walking in carrying a basket

        It's obviously far too difficult to clean the crap out of the lint trap. It's not as if it has an effect on the performance of the machine or anything. >.> Spilling detergent all over the machine and floor is so annoying. Are these people just throwing the stuff in the general direction of the machine and hoping to get at least some of it in? xD
