    replied to You Know What I Hate MK I
    After a year and a half of running smoothly and silently, my computer has developed an irritating habit where the CPU fan will randomly spin up for 2-3 seconds before stopping, over and over again, constantly, no matter what I am doing or whether I am doing anything at all. It doesn't seem related to CPU usage, heat, or dust, nor have I made any recent changes to the background programs, and none of the solutions I have looked up seem to work due to one exception or another.

    I am sick to fucking death of hearing this thing malfunction with no fix in sight.

    What fantasy/sci-fi series are you thinking of?

    Really not inspiring much confidence with your choice of examples, there....

    It sure worries me.

    Look, if you want to keep an enemies list of everyone who's been adjacent to this writer or failed to say harsh enough things about him, that's your prerogative. Don't dress it up in these lofty literary terms.

    ...Jesus. Wasn't Charlaquin just saying upthread that "don't buy his products" was the only thing being advocated here? Going pretty fucking far beyond that, aren't you?

    Honestly, I have no idea who wrote most of the books in my RPG library. It's not something I care about, because it doesn't change the purpose I have in mind for them. I'm in the market for RPG books, I'm not looking to buy a sociopolitical lifestyle....

    Avery is the most awesome and sympathetic character in the game. She's basically the protagonist's older sister. I like her.

    Tropico 6 and Anno 1800, mostly. Imperator Rome looks good but that won't be until the end of April.

    I really hope it wasn't commentary from Youtubers that made this delay happen. I don't trust their opinions one bit, frankly, and I certainly don't trust that any of their recommendations would lead to a "better" game.

    Every new game I was looking forward to playing has now been delayed for several months. ☹️

    I got "Romance of the Three Kingdoms 13" working on my computer now and have been having fun running around, trying to work my way through the ranks and chasing prestige titles. It reminds me a lot of the Mount & Blade series with its sandbox mechanics and wide variety of possible play styles, actually (another game I've considered revisiting despite never being any good at it).

    Total War: Three Kingdoms really has me excited so I've been digging into this setting and liking what I've found. I'm surprised it's not more popular outside East Asia.

    So I'm at work the other night, up on the Labor & Delivery floor of a hospital. One of the OB/GYN doctors was at the nurse's station at the time. I'm not sure how the topic arose, but for some reason she starts talking about New York's recently-passed abortion law, insisting that it meant healthy babies were now being euthanized shortly after birth at the command of women who didn't want to take care of them. (To state what should be obvious: the law in question absolutely does not do this and the situation described is not happening. It's honestly pretty anodyne legislation.)

    I had a lot of fun with Vampyr for that exact reason. The game world becomes especially dynamic if you are willing to drain a few Citizens, too, with the aftereffects of their disappearance rippling through their social circle. (And given the dark secrets many Citizens have, it's hard to say some of them don't deserve it...)...
