Do you play games?

Recommended Posts

I’m not a gamer by any means but Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is bringing me lots of joy right now. The levels are so cleverly designed and it’s got just the right amount of difficulty.

I got a lot of hours out of that game...

Most fun I've had playing a game in years and years.

I'm replaying the Dragon Age series. I'm reliving the glory days from before BioWare burst into flames. 

I’m doing this right now too!! 😂

Listening to Bobby Lee talk about Stardew Valley makes me feel like my parents whenever they ask me if those are "real people I'm talking to?"

I think we need to stop feeding the bots...

Some of the bots make more intelligent, reasoned arguments, devoid of extremist hyperbole, than a certain poster... :twisted:

To be clear, that's not a reference to you or anyone else in this thread!

DA and ME (and older, Baldur's Gate) are among the few games I enjoyably replayed soon after completing them the first time (replaying a game years later more common), DA in particular because of the varied origins and some later things related to them. Outside Bioware, Fallout series only one that springs to mind. ME3, for all its faults, even got me to do shooter multiplayer simply because of the in-game story effects from doing so.

I absolutely love ME - even more so than DA. For all the rage and flack ME3 got, I actually loved the ending. 

I've never actually tried Baldur's Gate however, as I've never met someone who's played it. How would you rate it in comparison to DA and ME? I have no issues with older games; I still regularly replay some of the oldest Final Fantasy games.

BG2 including Throne of Bhaal  better I think, but BG1 still excellent.

However, it's hard to separate subjective feelings of having enjoyed when it first came out, liking painted backgrounds and game rules (AD&D edition of the time) with, what's available now, especially given how long since I played it.

I did from a quick search find a review that, from my memory of what the game was like, I think captures some of the positives and negatives of playing the game now. Note, if you do play it and BG2 (again the latter I think being better), you need to spend some time on the Internet to figure out optimal characters and builds. And there's random stats in character generation, so either reroll a lot, or use a character editor.

I play all sorts of games. My current favourite is to go on dates and pretend I'm a sympathetic, caring individual instead of a soul-dead narcissist.

Was playing a lot of CS:GO at the start of law school. Found it was too much of a commitment (I was on a team competing in online leagues like ESEA/CEVO). Now I just play Rocket League casually. Beat Zelda: Breath of the Wild over winter holidays.

    • If you are truly interested in a career in family law then Nicholas Bala is all there is to say.  Foremost expert in Canada.  Take the opportunity to study under him.
    • Is that the Dudley v. Stevens case that determined that the defense of necessity was unwarranted in the case of eating a fellow crewmember to survive? I'll have to remember this case if I'm ever contemplating cannibalizing my friend on a hiking trip.
    • I took it 3 times back to back and now i'm finishing up 1L at UVic. As long as you keep improving on your scores, you should be fine June 2017 - 149 Sept 2017- 153 December 2017 - 163  
    • Also a 0L and looking to do the same thing so these are the two (more relevant to the law books) that I have found. The first is a really interesting one called "Is Eating People Wrong?" Its written by Allan Hutchinson (also a current or former Osgoode Prof) and it goes over some really notable legal cases from across the world that helped shape Common Law (Like Brown v Board of Ed. etc.) . Most of the cases are super weird (like the first one discussed, which influenced the title) and theres a bit of legal analysis thats included on them but not in a way that I'd say would impact you negatively like pre-reading textbooks would.  One I just ordered is "Women in Criminal Justice: True Cases By and About Canadian Women and the Law" which again would include interesting info, and likely some legal jargon to help familiarize yourself with the language, but I'm assuming also would not negatively impact your studies.    *Edit* Just realized someone else recommended Is Eating People Wrong, but that just shows how good it is!
    • I'm still waiting, been "under evaluation" since December. I have a 3.25, 3.73, 164 LSAT and an MA. This is my second cycle applying to Ottawa in the Access category. I was waitlisted last year with a much lower LSAT score. Anyone else still waiting in Access? I hope to be at least waitlisted with a more favourable number this year. I have already provisionally accepted UNB so it's not the end of the world if I don't get in, but I'd like to go to UOttawa or Queens over UNB if I had the option. I called an admissions officer last week and they said they had a lot of Access applications this year, and they didn't have the majority of files finalized until after January, so there may be a bit of a delay.
