Explain Your Icon!


#162

i’m gonna guess to not confuse the US residents, as in Murica football is thrown or cradled with your hands while running. And when you kick something, it’s aptly named soc (from wearing socks on your feet) or "soccer"
thus it would be NASA, (which might or might not already be trademarked by martians -verdict is still out),
-or NASC, which would only serve to confuse the southern US’Merica half. As it’s apparently a ritual they partake in: Watching mechanical metal cubes ride on rubber toroids traveling in a leftbound circle -while, importantly, consuming copious amount of boiled decaying grain mixtures

Oh my! I never noticed the little swimming fishy in your icon! Haha… I thought it was just a static image! The big version looks fantastic!


#164

Kind of true but CONCACAF has been around since 1961 so it’s to late for them to change it now anyways and if they did it would of been something like NASACAF North America,South America & Caribbean Association Football so it would of been the same almost. & NAFA is very close to the 3rd tier pro league in america called NASL North American Soccer League so to have NAFA would be to similar that NASL might be able to sue them over naming.

This is why I love @coralinecastell profile pic. The animation is elegant and subtle. Take note @CptMold :joy:

I love you @CptMold but your spinning icon sometimes gives me a headache.


#166

It reminds me of The song of the sea, gorgeous-looking movie.


#167

Hahah discreet, colorful and mesmerizing. Just like me. wink wink Anyways, I think it looks even better in full res as well!

Thank you @DanosaurJr for appreciating what was quite the hunt for the perfect profile pic. I also really like yours, especially after your explanation.

@Rilover woah is all I can say. I don’t think I’ve seen this movie yet! Thank you infinitely for the thoughtful suggestion!


#168

Here’s another reason why i love this community, constant reminders of stuff i’ve forgotten in the past. :hugs:

I also wanna watch this one @coralinecastell


#169

@DanosaurJr Any press is good press. That said, I’m tempted to make it even faster now.

Well, special thanks to everyone who has complained about my profile pic thus far. You’ve inspired me.

So… what do you think of my new pic?


Welcome our new Community Leaders!

yea…, -but you also said this:

sooo there’s that :man_shrugging:
:joy: :rofl: :joy:

(PS. i do enjoy your continued effort to keep me dizzy at all times i’m browsing the forum :smile:. Tho i do hope you don’t in fact dial it up to nausea rollercoaster lvls :wink:)

Well, I actually meant it about MG Survive. Just couldn’t resist a good troll post when it comes to The Witcher… if it makes things better, I make quite a few purchases on GOG, including other Eurojank-RPG’s. Either way, well played.

I just feel like I can’t win here. I was happy with my old pic, then everybody gets out their fancy gif’s, and I’m forced to keep up… but then nobody likes my gif’s? :frowning:


#175

I like your gif CptMold. It’s ok…in Project Mayhem all gifs are equal.


#176

about that, did you ever get around to Elex?

i’ve learned you have a way of finding things within a game, or ways to view it, that others don’t, (especially when critical or already initially decided), that finds something “good” in the “bad”
-doubt i’d actually ever had bought Homefront Revolution without your input
(i do doubt i’d ever like MGS enough to buy/try regardless, due to my dislike for most survival games/features)

i just found it particular funny here, because MGS (now) turned out to not be highly rated (meta bombing etc), making it the most fitting quote i could remember to reply with to the, obvious, witcher/fraggles troll jab :smile:
-no “avatar”/gif harassment intended :wink:

(all hail be to 90’s Quake pit sweats teen nostalgia)
it’s just unfortunate the giffyfying of that glorious icon ended in the effect to affect us lesser humanoids in such manner

-but then, all is fair to win in the arena i guess :smile:


Your thoughts humble bundle monthly, now with less Metal Gear and more organized crime.

I take your spinning fan and raise you

I was more talking about MG Survive’s Steam rating, which has unfortunately declined a bit since then. I feel like it gets way more hate than it deserves simply based on the shenanigans surrounding it. Not to mention, the press feels thoroughly one sided on slamming the game for things way outside of the developers’ control. With all the complaints you hear about publishers and weird restrictions or “they screwed our game,” Konami actually stands out for being incredibly cooperative when it comes to their games. They botch the marketing side a fair amount, that’s true, but in terms of actually letting their devs do what they want…


The article talks a fair amount about what went wrong with Lords of Shadow 2 in development, but in the end he doesn’t say a single bad thing about Konami-- quite the opposite, actually. Considering this interview and the actual budget/development time of Metal Gear Solid V, it just happens that I’m much more inclined to take Konami’s side than the guy who sits in his new multimillion dollar Sony office while sipping from a mug of “Konami Tears” while directly contradicting what he’s said in the past for a cheap stab at his old workplace.


I actually haven’t played much of ELEX yet. I played a few hours and had a great time in jankland, as the game has a pretty strong first hour. A short tutorial, some basic combat introductions, and one optional quest that’s way over your head. Needless to say… didn’t go well. “Haha, just going to escape with my jetpack and–” my last words before one of them pulled out a shotgun. Hm.

I ended up just getting them to follow me, then getting them to punch a troll. I just Dark Souls’d the troll and rolled all over the place while a bunch of bandits got stomped by a fight they really shouldn’t have started. Ten loot-dodges later, I went back to the main opening quest. I generally had a lot of fun, and it’s everything I expected from highly polished Eurojank. After that, some Windows 10 shenanigans happened and the game completely fell apart, so unless I want to play in a world with no lipsync and floating bows populating the towns, I’ll probably have to restart. Yes, that was Windows, not the game. A few other games broke in similar ways, at which point I just gave up and restarted my computer. I swear, I haven’t seen a Windows OS as unreliable as this since… well, ME.
