The Argument Chamber / Re: UK general election
« on: May 19, 2017, 04:46:41 AM »
I'd say you are welcome here, but apparently there's an "overwhelming mandate" saying you aren't :(

We actually actively researched this around 2007-2008. Both Aurore and me were looking for jobs, and decided to look in UK as much as in France. Thing is, we had 2-3 years of professional experience, so nothing very differentiating yet, and at least the few job interviews I did, answers I got was that I was a pretty good candidate, but not better by such a margin that it would justify going through the hassle of recruiting a foreigner. 2-3 year of experience in software development was too common. I might have found if I had persisted a bit, but this was much more of a dead-end for my wife.

It does feel like the whole planet is going to shit tbf. That said, some part of it are going there more slowly than others, that will have to do.
Canada is actually looking like a strong candidate. We're going there as tourists for three weeks this summer, but re-evaluating if that's a place where we feel we could live is actually more than just a second thought behind the trip: we've actually lived there already*, we speak both languages, we actually know quite a few people there who left France too (moving to Quebec is almost cliché for our generation in France), job in at least my sector would not be an issue, and at least from an external point of view they seem a bit further from becoming a fascist country than France or other potenrial candidates are.
North European countries used to appear like progressist paradises too, but cracks are appearing, and it just would be much harder for us on a language/cultural aspect.



*that was the year I first stumbled on the diabloii.net single player forums, and met many of the people who funded this community :D

You know what they say about France : always 10 years late after the US. Well, our Trump has been delayed, but only by consolidating what will inexorably bring our version to power.

Yeah, though unfortunately this outcome is far from shiny either. We avoided fascism by embracing (by default, but still) the ultraliberalism which is the exact cause of fascism rise in France for the last 15 years. I'm personally looking into solutions to leave the country before 2022 when LePen will not only be elected, but at such a level she might have the legislative seats to actually go along with her program.

That's because this country makes no sense and is full of idiots and worse :(

Damn, reading this I thought you had moved in France!

Heck, that reminds me that I had gotten the Telltale game from Fables because I love the comic series (at least the first half, quality nosedived soon after with major Deus Ex Machina solving from nowhere crisis which should have been major events), and WD was such a disappointment I never got to launch it.

TBF, I don't mind "narrative" games (loved Gone home, Heavy Rain mixed tedious and absolutely brilliant, Beyond : Two Souls was a disaster) but Walking Dead was just quite poor I found. The thing with narrative games is that they're only just as strong as their story, and WD felt like a collection of overplayed zombie clichés, only decent chapter was the one with the farm which had a reasonably original twist.

Branching is an illusion : none of the choices have any lasting impact whatsoever, you largely have the same chars dying in the same situations, you will switch which char dies to situation A and which to situation B. Choices with no consequences are no choices at all (recent major disappointment on this topic : Quantum Break). While it is obviously still limited, I LOVED how Heavy Rain dealt with this situation and had extremely interesting replay value, if you didn't get to play it and you do like narrative games, it has its (big) defaults, but deals with some of these aspects better than any game I've seen; go play it.

And I've heard they have cut out those parts since in other games, that WD was the first and they were still unsure they wanted to ditch the point & click heritage, but the very little gameplay there was actually detracted from the game : most puzzles were absolutely trivial, and GOD THE CHARACTER WALKED SLOWLY. Seriously, watch in hand, it took more than two or three minutes to navigate the farm I mentioned earlier just to go talk to character B after character A. I felt I spent more time walking than actually having anything happen, it drove me mad. Well, madder.

I got Tales of Borderland for free too since I do have a PSN subscription, but most likely will skip it too (not having played any Borderlands game doesn't really help).

If we report issues here btw : posting a reply to a topic sends me back to the sub-forum page instead of the topic itself. Anyone else having this issue ?

Sorry to keep derailing the topic, but the Wonderboy 3 remake is going to be released on just about every platform since it seemed to interest at least Dust. The Steam page is up already among other platforms.

I have the issue when I use urls like www.gamersoasis.net
It works fine if you use http://gamersoasis.net, without www.

I noticed in since my bookmark for GO actually was http://www.gamersoasis.net/index.php?action=unread which would keep asking me to log, works fine now that I switched it to http://gamersoasis.net/index.php?action=unread

I waited a few days (the smell of fresh paint was giving me headaches) but here I am (rock you like a hurricane).
