I haven’t been writing much because my free time has been utterly consumed by a new toy. I bought a HTC Vive. Normally I am not an early adopter of technology. I get on the curve early, but not this early. However, after trying a VR headset for myself, I broke with my tradition of waiting for the next generation.
You see, it is the most immersive experience I’ve ever had. When I held a sword after defeating my enemies and a dragon flew overhead, I felt like a hero. When murderous robots flew out of the dark at me I panicked and called my brother to get on his headset and play multiplayer with me so I had someone to watch my back. And when three flying buzzsaw drones came at me I emptied my assault rifle at one, threw the empty gun at the other instead of reloading, and then screamed and hid under the table with my eyes closed until I died and it all went away.
i watch my brother play fallout 3 like, uh, pretty often, and i just read the plot summary of it on wikipedia and i had no idea what i was reading, which makes me think my brother isnt good at fallout 3
A lil context: our party (of around 5) had been captured by drow and abandoned a small island inhabited by humans, goblins, and orcs. We decided to approach the orcs to see if they would aid us in taking out the drow and get off the island. I play a female half-elf paladin, while my friend plays her twin brother. Our campaign has been run using milestone levelling, rather than XP for story reasons.
Orc Leader: by our custom to gain our loyalty, you must compete to show your physical prowess!
(DM tells us to roll Athletics or Performance to see which of us will be picked for the trial)
Me: rolls nat20 Athletics
Twin: rolls nat20 performance
Orc Leader: you! The small double-elf persons! You shall compete in our physical challenge!
Twin: *leaning into the orc’s space* what kind of physical challenge, big boy? Surely we can bend the rules a little.
Me: I wink flirtatiously.
DM: Make a persuasion roll, with advantage because of your sister
Twin: rolls nat19
DM: Seriously? *rolls a nat1 for the orc’s saving throw* oh come on!
Orc Leader: (nervously) Crekkar accepts your challenge!
DM: And so you both take Crekkar to his tent and show your …physical prowess. *rolls dice* You both tire him out easily while you remain almost unaffected. The orcs appreciate your strength and endurance and are now your allies.
Me (ooc): *jokes* level up!
DM: … actually. I had planned for the milestone to be after you conquered the orc camp, either by killing them or proving yourself in combat. So, yeah. The entire party is now level 3.
Monk: I can’t believe I can now catch arrows because the twins are sluts
Have you ever heard of Final Fantasy XV? If so have you played it before? I'm just curious haha
Yes! ♥ My brother has been playing it recently and I’ve been watching as well ((i’m more of a backseat gamer)) and I think it’s really awesome – but the feELS!!!
I told him to hold off the final battle for a while because I need to recover all my emotions LOL ((we’ve been finishing sidequests and doing the level grinds but we didn’t know that Chapter 9 and beyond was like a one-way trip to pain wtf))
I’ve been doodling the squad sometimes too ((first time sketching them hhh pls forgive the mistakes–gotta practice moreee)) *__* I also have some comic ideas for them ((the game haS SO MUCH CRACK MATERIAL if u look closer))
Having a sibling is super weird because you’re constantly torn between “wow I can’t believe this is real oh man you’re a great sibling I really love and appreciate you” and “oh my fucking god I’m going to throw an axe at your face and commit homicide real soon if you don’t stop being so annoying I swear to god”
You have two humans, two individuals, who are going through a ritual. They are sitting at a table. They’re absolutely silent. They’re making no eye contact, and they do nothing more physically taxing than every now and then, one of them picks up their hand and moves a little piece of wood on the table. And if these happen to be the right two individuals in the middle of a chess grandmaster tournament, these people are maintaining blood pressure for six hours running that you only see in a marathon runner. These people are going through thousands of calories a day doing nothing more than thinking. (x)
[…] I’m also super super duper close with Keiynan, who plays Wally West, my brother on the show. I don’t think a lot of people know this about him but he’s very very funny, and he keeps me laughing pretty much consistently when we’re shooting.
davehause: When my brother Tim was 11 years old, we lost our mom to cancer. It was brutal beyond belief for myself, my dad and our 3 sisters, but even more so for him at such a young age. The only way we got through that ordeal was music. Sharing records, playing guitar, talking about songs was all we could do to bridge our age gap as well as the chasm of sadness. One of the bands I turned Tim on to at that age was My Chemical Romance. The Loved Ones (my old band) had played some shows with them and they were incredible, channeling Queen and a youthful anger and anxiety into amazing songs and live performances. Frank Iero in particular was a Loved Ones fan, and they were always super supportive and kind to us back then. Tim responded to their music, particularly the Black Parade, and it seemed to be a voice in the wilderness of grief that he could hold on to. (along with the Bouncing Souls, Hot Water Music, and many more). Playing music with my brother for the last 3 years has been one of the most enriching, incredible experiences in my entire life, and the best in my musical career. This tour Tim has gotten to open for and to know Frank and his lovely band, and last night be got to meet all of My Chemical Romance, a band that gave him solace through one of the hardest experiences of life. Much love and respect to these dear souls for helping my kid brother in a profound way. Music can truly save. #mychemicalromance
i have a lot of memories of being a small child and trying to play pc games with my brother and consistently, utterly failing to perform basic tasks. we never got a single sim to move into our simcity. we played virtual safari and were in AWE when we finally figured out how to leave the fucking house. we played that 101 dalmations game and when we managed to get to the minecarts it was another holy shit moment. i didn’t even know simant had goals. i just build an ant palace for my chosen ant, and then built elaborate insect zoos and coliseums where lesser ants could fight to the death. i think the only game i managed to play successfully was clue, and that’s because it was literally just the board game. that, and that game where you were on a keebler elf mountain doing math. that doesn’t count though. anyway one of these days i will hunt those games down just to beat them and get a better sense of the basic level of incompetence i suffered as a third grader.
