        Okay, that takes the cake for the most bloody baffling thing I've seen all month. What the heck am I looking at? Is... is this someone who stole my name and avatar? And why? Just... what.

        It's a screenshot from the visual novel game "Emily Is Away Too". It's meant to simulate an AOL chatroom.

        The game has a feature where one of your steam friends will appear in the in-game friend's list that the protagonist has and will have a randomly generated joke profile.

        Ahhhhh, I see. That makes more sense. And I knew I'd seen that interface SOMEWHERE before. The look reminds me of a chat program I used to use, thus the confusion.

        That game sure pops up a lot on Steam.

      Man those VR videos you do are cool.

        They're amateurish, is what they are. Bloody recording software barely works, or I barely understand how to work it. I've been putting up more and more of them on my channel though, if you havent seen the really recent ones. Going to go record more in just a moment here.

        Still, the VR experiences you present in the videos are cool. Like the arcade.

      Is there a place here besides Off Topic I could post my short story on? I already posted it there but it makes me wonder why there is nothing for writing or literature here.

      Are you British/Scottish? You talk like one. Your profile claims you're from Illinois. Are you an immigrant or something?

        That kinda thing also affected my speech patterns. Though only IRL. I kept being exposed to "valleyspeak" and I ended up incorporating elements of it in my speech. I actually am from the San Fernando valley. However my mom made fun of me because she said no one talks like that anymore.

        Same. Though with pirates, scotsmen, and supervillains. They spring up in my voice ever so often. I also have an evil laugh.

        I'd recommend Devilman (1972), Tomie (1987), and Medaka Box (2009)

        Ooh.... I looked up Tomie, that absolutely looks like my sort of thing. I dont find good horror stuff nearly as often as I'd like. Very nice find there.

        Tomie is basically what happens when a Lovecraftian cosmic horror entity LARPs as a human.

        And then there's the fact that most "plots" are stupid at best and one big succession of bombs and gunfire at worst. I simply can't handle it. (Sorry, @Misery, for butting in.)

        yea same here though in my case I just go totally mind blank (or vacant if you will)
        or boring in enougher word probably because I have to work so hard to concentrate on what the people are doing that I lose touch with my feelings for lack of a better way to put it which makes it hard to get beyond skin deep

        It's a learned skill, actually. It's something you can work on, if you want. Seriously, you really can.

        For me it comes from two things: 1. I read *alot* of books. So many. And 2. Lots of Garfield. I daresay that half of my personality was shaped by that sarcastic cat. That's not a joke.

      Hey there,
      Are you a programmer? You mentioned having found out the hard way that developing games is hard...
      1. Misery
        Misery
        Hmm, sort of. Though I dont handle the "deep" coding stuff. I've worked as a contractor to an indie dev that I know, their studio name is Arcen. The game I had the biggest part in is Starward Rogue. This is an example of what I do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cGOkBPd1ow

        Bullet-hell games are my thing, and I did boss & enemy creation. There's more to the story, but this only allows for short comments, so... yeah. I'm not a professional though, I dont do any of this as a career.

        No seriously though, what blazing idiot thought a character limit of 460 was a good idea? Ugh.
