Applicant Introductions / Re-Introduction (Maligner)
« on: August 19, 2014, 08:48:37 pm »
Hello to all the members.

I go by the name of Maligner here on the forum and in most games. I am a former member that is reapplying.

A quick note about the name; it is intended to be pronounced Muh-line-er using the root word malign. In truth, I don't really care but I know from past experience that many people struggle with it and this is distracting, so there you go. Also note that it derives from my first World of Warcraft character, a Warlock, and was intended to by appropriate in a role-play lite fashion. I find the name to be not popular and therefore largely available and have thus used it for over a decade now. I don't think I've ever explained the evolution of the use of the name before so thought I'd pop that in here.

I joined in 2011, I believe in December of that year. I joined for SWTOR, although I did not stick with that game. The bulk of my membership was spent as a "Primary Game: Other" status.

I resigned membership in 2013, also in December. There were many factors, but the driving force was a general sense of depression and isolation that I was experiencing at the time, having moved to Hawaii by myself for a temporary contract work assignment. I won't go into the details, but suffice to say that I felt that I was detrimental to others, at least as far as my attitude was concerned. I'd imagine this sounds like a strange excuse, but in truth it was a very stressful time. I haven't been that unhappy in several years. I wasn't really thinking as clearly as I normally would either.

When I resigned, my sole focus was to avoid any drama and I do think I achieved that goal. I believe my actions in resigning were a mistake.

Moving forward, my purpose is to correct my error. I'll be the first to say that I don't assume I'll be a shoe-in. I fully expect The Guardians to make an informed decision. To that end, I will be happy to answer any and all questions.

Thanks for your time!

Hold left click on the pictures and move your mouse side to side. Pretty darn cool.

Never sure if I should necro a thread or start a new one....

Current Steam sale includes Tropico 4 for $3, Darkness 2 for $6 among other decent deals.

Galactic Civilization 3 on pre-order! Not a great discount (-10%) but it threw me for a loop.

Just because it's been forever, and I had a wild hair. Well, I also have a soft spot for silly promos and no where to share.

It's up on Steam as an early release. Looks like DayZ with a new take on zombies. Anyway, the trailer is really good.

General Discussion / Anyone In Oahu?
« on: October 20, 2013, 09:56:06 am »
Specifically in the Honolulu area or near? I've taken a job that starts next month (exact date unconfirmed) in Honolulu and would love to meet up.

On a side note, I'll have to wait and see what my housing is like but I would entertain letting people crash there for a cheap(er) vacation as I'll have company provided housing and I'll be solo for at least a few weeks.

Nothing is happening. Click the big cookie. Click again. Oh my, what have I done?

Gadgets, Gizmos, and Computers / Video Switch For Desktop/Console
« on: September 23, 2013, 06:30:35 pm »
Does anyone use or have advice for a standard computer monitor setup with switch to easily change between console or desktop? I'm considering getting a PS3 but would want to run it on my computer console while avoiding constantly changing the connections to my monitor if possible.

You've probably seen them before, but if not the videos are relatively short. This one is impressive.

Can you say concussion?

Other Games and Interests / The Hunter- A Hunting Sim
« on: September 16, 2013, 10:38:26 pm »
I've never played another hunting sim before (i.e. Cabella's) so I have no reference point. In real life, I've not enjoyed hunting. This is a little more fun. It's a visually attractive engine. The base game is free, but you only have license to hunt Mule Deer. Be warned that beyond a hand full of missions, you won't be able to hunt the other varmints. You will earn some in game money for the missions you complete that you can buy some simple equipment and licenses with, but this game is like most that if you want to play you're going to want to upgrade membership or purchase in-game currency.

There is single player, and multiplayer as well as competition play.

For more details, here is the site:

If you want to upgrade from basic (free) membership, please use this link so I get credit! Or at least one person do so and then other folks can have a stab at refer a friend! :)

To be honest, I am just dabbling and have not upgraded from basic. It's definitely different than the norm and that's gotten my attention. Graphically, it reminds me of DayZ but the environment looks better, IMO.

EDIT: I forgot to include the link for Steam Greenlight, where you can get more info and videos.

General Discussion / No More YouTube For Me
« on: September 12, 2013, 11:10:48 pm »
I just deleted my cookies, and when I tried to get on YouTube I did not automatically log in. Unfortunately, I can't seem to recall my info and I suspect it's tied to an e-mail address from the last state I lived in.

I see that making a YouTube account these days requires a gmail account. I did this to make a new channel and find that the changes they have made disgust me. For one, the avatar I've been using no longer meets the standard required, so I can't use it on the new channel

Channel deleted, goodbye YouTube.

The only thing keeping me tied to Facebook is people I've not seen in a couple of decades and may never see again. The daily BS I could easily dispatch with the click of a mouse. Perhaps it's time to make that move as well?

Available on Steam Early Access.

For you space nuts to maybe fend off your cravings a little.  ;)

I have no idea if it's any good, but it looks fun.
