All video game things aside, I wish nothing but the best for you and your family Mike. I am glad you found something that you know brings you comfort in trying times and I wish you nothing but the best.
Hi Mike, first off best wishes for you and your sister. As a big sister, I’m always worried about my little brother even with us in our 40s now, and him long past the age of needing me to look after him.
I’m so sorry, my heart goes out to you and your family
I hope your sister pulls through Fahey. Random hope from an internet stranger, I know, but still, hope she pulls through and makes a strong recovery.
I’ve thankfully never wanted to change my PSN name. I have been using the same online name for lots of things since like 1996 and the AIM screen name days. I’ve always liked it...except for some damn reason I used a different name when I created an Xbox account back in the day...”Maester Tracer”. I think the Maester…
“How am I supposed to deal with this shit right here?”
Perception is everything - how about re-tuning your headcanon so that you’re playing out a power fantasy where it’s socially acceptable to dispose of household pests with automatic weapons?
You can’t have a tragedy unless you have a dead pretty girl.
I’m glad you pulled through, I hope you’re doing alot better. My dad had a stroke on my birthday (of all days) and he survived, it was the best Bday gift I could ever ask for.
So your brain gave you a whole bunch of material to work with. Now you’ll have to get to writing a series of books, that will be turned into an HBO series down the line. Have at it.
Excellent piece Mike. I’ve really never read anything quite like it. I feel like most writing about NDEs and dreams is always bogged down in pseudoscience and/or religious interpretations, it’s fascinating to see it presented so straightforwardly and earnestly. Thank you for sharing this and best wishes on your…
Glad you made it back to us Mike.
Salutes to you, Mike. Braved a challenging event in your life and came out to tell many tales.
I would change races immediately if I could play that.
Strange times we live in. Seems like everyone has turned in to a spoiled little child, throwing a fit about the world that doesn’t cater to them, and their needs/wants/likes. This is why we have so little in the way of originality anymore. Everything is engineered to placate the whining masses, and what isn’t, is…
I believe they also gave development reasons to also explain the gender-locking. It is true that supporting additional genders to races = additional development time, that much is clear to those who understand mmo game development.
wait for it: they’ll announce the hrothgar actually have no sexual organs, as they are not mammalian and reproduce asexually through a ritual at the age of 22. Those who violate tradition and do not perform the ritual are cast out, and THOSE are the playable hrothgar.
I had this moment of panic after I dropped $420 (lol) on a Switch, Zelda, and Mario where I worried that maybe these would be the only two games worth getting my Switch for, and maybe I put down a whole bunch of money on a couple of solid titles, but after I finished those my Switch would just gather dust until I was…
Everquest is still alive? Next you’ll be telling me Ultima Online is still going.
On a side note: Everquest 2 will be 15 years online in November. God I feel old.
