That was surprisingly awesome. Fuck Skyrim; I wanna hang with that dude.

This has something to do with a video game, I gather. And it's not really very funny.

Tiny Tim is fun, though, I guess.

It was pretty well put together, given my expectations from the via.

I'm glad that someone figured out a way to have fun with Oblivion.

You know, that's what I thought, "would I have to x to care about y?"

And then the man in the skirt started slapping a sheep with a fish, and then I thought,
"This is relevant to my interests."

That man's real name is Sir Digby Chicken Caesar.

This is before his nemesis drove him to living on the streets.

I'm sorry, but this thread does naught to relieve my pain from the following:

1. Not owning Rift, and
2. No new Half-Life games for so so so sadly a long time now.

But yes, Cabaret Man who has his hair done by Mr. Stay-Puft and who whacks his enemies with cherubic fish?

I will survive.

102 days until Skyrim comes out.

If I save twenty dollars a day from then until now, I will have enough money to buy a computer good enough to play it! And then I will pirate the game mercilessly.

Actually, Oblivion was a bunch of fun on the 360. I dunno how good this Skyrim whotsit will run on such a thing but that's likely where I'll be playing it. God, I haven't used by Xbox for months. Hope it still works.

Bitch I got shit to craft in Terraria I don't have time for no properly-constructed sentences with consistent themes and accurate spelling.

I'm just waiting for From Dust and the Minecraft Adventure Update to satisfy my desire to be God-King

Don't make me tell the story about the time I met Tiny Tim. Really, I met Tiny Tim.

Really, I met Tiny Tim.

Was he actual size?

Lipstick Thespian: The Chinese Room's Korsakovia uses the Source engine, so it's kind of a Half-Life game in a way. People have some good things to say about it so maybe you could try that.

Every time I get a new Elder Scrolls game the first thing I do is fire up the game building thing and make myself a Winn's Deadly Blade. I make it so that it is a one-shotter of anything from gods down to those creepy pterodactyl things.

I do this because I hate combat, but I love quests.

I look forward to making a Winn's Deadly Blade: DragonSlayer edition!

I want to hear about tomswift meeting Tiny Tim.

Actually, yes, yes he was.

It is a bit of a misnomer, to say the least.

OK, since you begged.

It was the summer of 1968, I was 20 years old and between Jackson Community College and Eastern Michigan University, and decided to leave the comfort of Jackson, Michigan to go to Miami and work for the summer.

My Brother-in-Law got me a job parking cars at at Hotel on the beach. I spent every day running across Collins Ave. getting cars for tourists that tipped me 25 cents, but, hell, the temp was only about 100 degrees, why should they tip more? Note that, once we established who was going to stiff us, turn on the heat when we got in the car and delivered it to them at about 125 degrees.

I was working the front of the hotel when a Chevy Impala pulled up. There were two guys in the front seat, and three in the back. As usual, I opened the drivers door, then opened the back door. I looked inside and, there, sitting in the middle was Tiny Tim. Now, there are a lot of people who you would look at and say, "hey, that looks like that famous guy...", but then you say..."nawww.. must be someone that looks like him." This was not the case with Tiny Tim... if you saw Tiny Tim, you knew it was Tiny Tim.

He was sitting in the back of this car, squeezed in between two huge guys, wearing a trench coat, in Miami, when the temp was well over 100 degrees.... Sweat pouring down his face, his hair plastered to his face.

I reached over the guy closest to the door, grabbed Tim's hand, and said "I'm thrilled to meet you!"

Later on, I washed my hand.

Tim stayed at the hotel for a few days, he was a pretty pleasant guy..I went to see him perform at a small club.... The 60's, if nothing else, were fun!

For a kid from Jackson, Michigan, this was!

hellojed: "See also : This Amazing, MSPA-style Oblivion themed webcomic"

That started out almost as frustrating as my attempt to watch Bridget Jones' Diary, on which I spent half an hour grumbling "will... you... please... attempt... to behave rationally for JUST ONE MONENT." This got better, the movie presumably didn't (I couldn't finish it).

That interactive oblivion story is great, especially after shit starts going sort of right. It kind of reminds me of the cyanide and happiness interactive stories, of which only one appears to still be online.
