You don't have to be a bot - manual spam is alive and well. I saw one once who straight up admitted he was a paid spammer, and pleaded to let him hang around long enough to pick up his paycheck. He was almost endearing.

I think I have a fair idea what this is. I also think it's much cooler than anyone has even come close to guessing, if I'm right. Can't wait, lemm.

I wrote out a longish, self-indulgent, ass-kissing post, but then threw it away. Apparently I've earned a vague reputation for being blunt around here. Either way, I'll be fairly short and sweet. Your mods are way too damn hard for me. I say for me, because honestly I'm a pretty wimpy Keener. Low pe...

I've tried to carefully pick a couple tracks reflecting each album as a whole, but it's heavily biased towards my favourites (EDIT: this means they're not really that representative at all ha ha ha ha). Either way. From Steven Wilson - Insurgentes (2009): Veneno Para Las Hadas Significant Other From...

Used to be that whitetails were associated with arachnogenic necrosis, which is indeed quite nasty and while not inherently lethal, certainly not fun. However, a study has shown that whitetails don't actually cause it. They're still venomous and getting bitten by one isn't recommended, but not liabl...

Long ago, deep in the mists of the late 90s, the Internet was gearing up to be the next big thing, or the platform on which the next big thing would have to be launched. In an ambitious move, Microsoft launched Worlds, a sort-of-MMO chat thing with a lot of user created content (and ads!). All was w...

The tools beside the player are Win32 programs. They have no issue on 64-bit systems, and won't run in DOSBox at all. I suspect Levack simply doesn't know how to use them - there's no graphical interface, but you don't need the commandline for basic usage, dragging and dropping the involved files on...

Benvolio: I'm honestly not entirely sure I'm sold on the musical style, from what little I've heard here (it has a lot of elements that I like, yet the whole didn't seem to be going anywhere, at least to me), but her performance approach there is fascinating to watch. anyway, I think it's time for a...

Any illegality would stem from circumvention of routines designed to prevent running pirated software. Even if software piracy is not the intent, console companies get kinda tetchy about it (see also: mod chips, and unlicensed software developers - Super 3D Noah's Ark, anyone?). I feel like there wa...

Well, the point is entirely moot - even if your Steam "license" to K1 and 4 was revoked, you could still reobtain them through other valid means. The shareware policy isn't really being violated at all.

NetKeen is sort of almost the same engine - it bears more in common with ZDoom than CG does since NetKeen has an actual source connection to the original games, even if a tenuous one. NetKeen is based on the Wolf3D source code (which I gather was created with the recycling of much Keen code), with a...

The background in that second screenshot looks most excellently trippy. Continued work on this seems like it'd provide adequate material to drool over while I wait for AR to eventually materialize.

I dunno if you've ever read an EULA before, but the "licensed not sold" thing is probably in just about any piece of software you've purchased featuring an EULA, ever. It's snuck its way into online music purchases too, if I recall there was a bit of a ruckus put up by Bruce Willis of all people whe...
