Hello y'all. I've been looking around this boards, watching the insanity, and so decided I'd join. :D

 

Anyway, I'm a TFOL(does this forum use that slang) and enjoy building steampunk mocs, old Lego games, interactive fiction[you know, Zork, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy(I got the Babblefish! ;P ), Enchanter, Infidel, Beyond Zork etc.], other good RPGs, and a variety of other things.

 

I like classic Lego, particularity Classic castle. My favorite Lego game is Lego Racers 1.(Though LR2 had some awesome stuff you could do within the limits of what you were supposed to, like battles, and beyond that, like riding a drill missile to get below the Mars Lava river). 

 

Outside of the realm of games and hobbies, I enjoy reading, stroking my chickens beard, and arguing the heck out of anything.

 

I ramble, don't I?

 

Well anyway, I'm here on RRU now, and I will enjoy the challenge of trying to makes things even more bizarre than they already are(bizarre is just a wonderful word? You don't need to be grandiloquent or circumloquacious to use it).

Hey Seaborgium, how're you? Good thing to see another LR fan around here, but this:

 

Lego Racers 1

I can't stand. It is just LEGO Racers or LEGO Racers 2. Yes I'm nitpicking. 

 

You don't need to be grandiloquent or circumloquacious to use it).

I have a feeling that you can quite relate to Quisoves Pugnat's way of talking.

 

Anyway, enjoy your stay.

Hello, Seaborgium, and welcome to RRU! Watch out for landslides.

 

 

I am one of the very few composers on RRU, along with my friend Drill Master, and yes, I made this madness music. :P

Eeyup. You should get along just fine.

Oh dear. I can't believe I made that mistake. :cry: ( :P)

 

But have you ever played Infocom's "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Game"? It's got the opposite problem of most licensed games. Instead of biggybacking on its source material, Douglas Adams himself helped design, and make it special, unique, and quite often frustrating. It's one of those few games where you punch the air if you just manage to make it down the stairs(in the game) without dieing.

 

Of course, this was in the eighties, when new platforms weren't coming out left and right, so instead of what we do nowadays, which is pretty much make the same kind of game(first-person-shooters) with better graphics and sound as soon as a shiny new platform comes out, people actually made progressively more complex, interesting, in depth, and captivating games for about a decade. Then DOOM came along, people stopped making games for the Apple II, and things went down hill from there. I've heard Zelda kind of picked things up when it came along, but games in general are more handholdy, plotless, challengeless, and unengaging, than they were in the eighties, which is why you could have games which were quite hard, and people would still play them, and enjoy them.

It's not really considered a "food combo" like scrambled eggs and maple syrup or bacon and jelly on toast, or peanutbutter and fried eggs on a sandwich with cheese, it's actually a legitimate southern dish.
