    Yep. It was fun, but a bit too much like the original, and I played it too soon after, so I got bored with it after a while. Will probably get back into it sometime later on.

    What's a MI patient?
    Myocardial Infarction. The technical term for a heart attack, when one of the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart itself is blocked by a clot. The area of heart muscle supplied by that vessel then dies.

    Ah, the technical term in Swedish is "hjärtinfarkt", where "hjärta" == "heart", so similar to that, then. Nasty business anyhow.

    Portal 2s biggest problem was that singleplayer was a long tutorial of things you already knew from portal 1, and co-op was a tutorial again of the same things. Which led to many many puzzles that was much too easy and very few that were actually challenging. But then again Portal 2 had a pretty darn funny story, especially since the Co-Op starts as a prelude to the singleplayer and the extra maps* for Co-Op is a epilogue to the singleplayer.

    *which here mostly pretty damn good simply because they were actual puzzles not tutorials.

    Bioshock 2 was the best. Just putting it out there.

    Yeah, I think that must've been one of the biggest problems. It felt slow and the game trying to teach me all these things that I already knew put me off a bit.

    Never finished Bioshock, the 1st, though I came very close. Never tried 2. Fairly disinterested in Infinite.

    Geez. You guys need to have a talk about household equality and gender roles!

    I realize you must have meant "watching", but this was just too much fun to miss out on...

    TO get back on track: Bioshock 2 simply had a better character study. Also Im a dad so I guess I related more to them and their motivations.

    Atleast more than RANDOM PERSON PLANE CRASH, ENDS UP IN SUBMARINE CITY, ENDS UP KILLING HIMSELF THEN FIGHTS A GIANT DJINNI OUT OF A BOTTLE.

    Does anyone of you (still) play Awesomenauts? I found an old Yogscast skin key in my inbox. As I do not play it I would like to give it away.

    PS: Would prefer to give it to people who play. Not much sense in giving it away otherwise.

    Currently reading a book about the battle of the Imjin River (Korea 1951). Interesting point re tanks and hills:

    The Brits were using their Centurion tanks (new at the time, and still considered "Top Secret"). The Centurion had bare steel tracks and a manual gearbox. The American tanks had rubber track blocks and an automatic gearbox. The Cenurions could climb hills by dropping into 1st gear, but the American automatic gearboxes resulted in them " coming back down the hill sliding sideways or backwards".

    Im confused. Why am I "sooo" creepy :|

    Should I take offence at that without any reasoning? Sorry if i've come across creepy, but idk what you're referring to?
