Given the mad glee when it was rumored Yahtzee did VO for Portal 2 (because there's only one person with that crazy accent, amirite?) I can already hear several someones coming out of the woodwork.If anyone knows anything about modding, let me know how one goes about replacing sound files in the game and I'll record a voice pack.
Of course we did. A lot of us probably also skimmed the text more and more as we went on because it was uncomfortable to have that many fingers in that position and like hell were we dropping a page. (Stopped doing that after one particular skim (Space Mutiny or something) got my papery avatar executed. Went to tearing up an old newspaper for bookmarks.)And whenever I read a choose-your-own-adventure book as a child I'd have all ten of my fingers marking previous pages just in case I was walking into one of the bullshit endings. And don't tell me you didn't do that.
Hah FTL was the same for me, got really tense in places, blowing up on the second to last sector was always enraging. Also the random 'riot on space station should you help?' type missions which nearly always ended up with you losing a treasured crew member or taking damage to your already disintegrating ship.Catface Meowmers said:I was having a lot of fun with FTL because the no-save feature meant you had to plod on through whatever choices you made. But the randomness got really frustrating, especially when an entire run could be ruined by some randomly-impossible encounter that no amount of skill could get you through (I'm looking at you, 20-mantis boarding party whilst disabling sensors and oxygen and my patience).
And I definitely did that thing with the Choose Your Own Adventure books as well. That goddamn space vampire kept drinking all my bloods.
As an ex scummer I did the same thing myself when I was a kid. (left hand to save the pages, right to die roll) I never realised that I was save scumming even back then.And whenever I read a choose-your-own-adventure book as a child I'd have all ten of my fingers marking previous pages just in case I was walking into one of the bullshit endings. And don't tell me you didn't do that.
