 Forum: Games and Video Games   Topic: the longest time owning a game without beating it

I'm certain there were many old games for the original Game Boy, like the original Game Boy version of Super Mario Land, that I played 15 years ago and still have never beaten. I believe I could regularly make it to world 3 back in the day, and made it to world 4 easily when I tried on an emulator r...

I bought the first Mafia during the Steam sale a few weeks ago. I feel the game is very linear, but the atmosphere is great, and the characters and story make the game worth my time (and $2.50). Nothing to say about Mafia II, though. I'm running a fairly crappy laptop and am trying to save playing a...

If I do have to go, though, I'll bring a PSP or something to entertain myself, find somewhere relatively peaceful and deserted (outside of the dancefloor), then sit there until the hell is over. ...allegedly one of my real-life friends met one of her best friends doing this. Except this was back in...

I could have sworn I read more books than this in 2010, but this is all I can remember. Guided by Voices: A Brief History: Twenty-One Years of Hunting Accidents in the Forests of Rock and Roll by James Greer Chronicles, Volume 1 by Bob Dylan (technically this was required reading for a university cl...

Never have. If someone actually wants to talk to me, then odds are they're going to be interesting people who are on similar wavelengths. What I have noticed is that when I meet people (well, when people meet me) we tend to be exactly on the same wavelength, but as the years progress, they change (t...

I understand this is something normal people do all the time - to the point where if you don't like someone, the de facto way to show it is by not answering their calls, blocking them on Facebook, and so on. I would think if you and her are close friends, you'd be able to talk about the issues in yo...

Office Depot, on the technicality that as I am in college, I don't have any need for "home improvement". Well, yet.

This still has not happened. That being said, in the math department, the A-B cutoff tends to be low. I sat in (well, took, but you get the idea) an upper-division math exam once where the average was somewhere in the lower-to-mid fifties. In that class, the exam average started in the upper 70s and...

They seem to burn the bridges, metaphorically speaking. And I let it happen, especially if it's predictable in advance. I figure as all my friends get relationships and get married, losing everybody will be inevitable as they all switch into life patterns that are based on the tenet of relationship ...

I have been mistaken for a girl on the phone a couple of times. This scares the crap out of me. Especially if you knew that for a guy, I am at least one standard deviation short and probably between one and two thin. Back in high school, someone tried to sell me girl's jeans because I could not fit ...

The odd part about not telling anyone is how in the past two or three years, Aspergers has become more and more and more well known, to the point where people casually mention it in conversation. I was at a social event at someone's house and we were talking about how we thought -- we being the opin...

It's clever and all, but most everyone now has their own idea (complete with misconceptions) of what Aspergers' is. It seems like wearing it would be far too risky -- after all, it's not easy to gauge what one's response to Aspergers' is. Possibly if the "A" were an alpha, the "S" were a sigma, and ...

The one time I went to a meetup, it was all far older people -- twenties and possibly thirties and forties -- who were working, paying the bills, and living independently. I believe the whole focus was independent living -- it was a group for adults with Aspergers. I felt like I was far too young. I...

I'd agree about MIT: even if the myth that MIT students are so socially inept they need a social skills class (I don't believe this: read the article and you'll see it's really a business/professional skills class) is true, I'd imagine that simply because you're a girl who studies engineering or com...
