Unlike Tuesday, where SOMEONE jumped the gun before I could get home from the pub, I actually almost forgot today. Good news, at least for me, is my household goods cleared customs\quarantine and were delivered today. Near the end of next month I get to set up all my stuff repaint, lay new carpet, and assemble\arrange new furniture. Oh, and I guess run speaker and network cabling. Whoo!

My Experience so far and asking for advice by BreakingPoint0


War. War never changes.
The Japanese PC-Engine fanboy waging war against Saturnians. Nintendo built a Famicom for it’s cartridge fees. Sony shaped a Playstation and turn the company into a video game heavy corporation.

But war never changes.

In the 21st century, war was still waged over the consoles that we are playing. Only this time, the spoils of war were also its weapons: exclusives and hardware functions. For these features, Bungie will favor Sony, fanboys will spread 720 always online rumors, and the PC gamers would dissolve into arrogant, annoying fan base, bent on controlling the newest graphic cards on Earth.

In 2013, the storm of world war had come again. In two years, most of the gamers were reduced to fanboys. And from the ashes of the internet trolls, a new civilization would struggle to arise.

A few were able to reach the relative safety of the large underground Polygon. Your family was part of that group that entered Polygon. Imprisoned safely behind the large Polygon front page, under a mountain of healthy comments, Polynauts have lived without knowledge of the outside world.

Life in the Polygon is about to change.
