Apologies, I should’ve thought of censoring the name. I sent you more information about the post on facebook, but fortunately I don’t think it’s a wide-spread opinion about you (at least, I would hope not). p
I just spent the last hour raging over EA and how much I hate their bullshit.
Can we just take a moment and appreciate the beauty that is Valve Software?
We can poke fun at how slow they are, at Gabe’s weight, at the hats, but you know what? They are the best thing out there. They are by far the most innovative developer. They take fucking risks. They don’t repeat the same shit over and over again. And they know when what they make is crap, and they START OVER to make it the absolute best it can be. Did you know the original Half-Life was almost ready for launch when they decided it was shit so they practically scrapped the whole fucking thing to start over? WHO THE FUCK DOES THAT?
Also they saved PC Gaming. Do you bitches remember the early ’00s? PC Gaming was dying fast. Then lol here comes Valve with fucking Steam and the fucking Orange Box and single-handedly kicked PC Gaming back into the spotlight with an amazing new idea to combat piracy that didn’t piss the fuck out everyone using it. Not only that, it made getting games easier and for less money with access to a store that quickly became massive. Back in my day, if you couldn’t find it on the shelf at Fry’s you were out of fucking luck. Or Game Stop. This was still when Game Stop had PC Games. ALSO Look at all those indie games over there on Steam. Loooook at them. Steam provided an amazing platform for independent developers to get their product out there and immediately available to millions of people.
And they listen to the community and stuff.
tl;dr I really, really love Valve. A lot.
All those who love PC gaming, and TF2. Take a moment to appreciate Valve Software.
jespresso said: I got a similar reaction once…from my family doctor. “You’re too normal to be messed up, stop pretending you have problems you don’t have.” Gosh I hate not being taken seriously. Hope you get the help you need!
Your family doctor said that?? Oh my god I am actually really pissed off they said that to you! My family has been blowing off my problems since I was a teenager, but to have a doctor do it would just send me over the edge. Thank you so much, I hope you were able to get help too! <3
I hear her downstairs talking to my dad about it. Saying “she never REALLY let me know how serious it was”, as if hallucinations are ever normal or I was just making it up??? God I’m sorry I keep going on about it I’m just so upset and angry about this kind of stuff. It’s embarrassing, I only wanted to talk to a doctor about these kinds of things but I guess the cat’s out of the bag now…
I have a much better doctor now but yeah at the time it sucked a lot! She wasn’t really qualified to deal with that sort of thing I guess. Fortunately my mom helped me find someone else and I’m doing better.
Your parents don’t sound like they really know how to handle psychological stuff, but still, they ought to at least take something like that as a sign that SOMETHING is off. It makes complete sense that you’re frustrated about it, especially since it’s hard to talk about. I only had one instance of hallucination but it was scary as hell and not easy to explain to anyone who hadn’t experienced something like that. Maybe your doctor will set them straight on taking it more seriously!
Did you have plans tonight? I didn’t think so. And it’s a good thing too, because we’re back for some livestreaming Let’s Play goodness for the first time in MONTHS! Join us tonight at 8 pm EST / 7 pm CST / 1 am GMT for a Let’s Play of the indie game Pencil Whipped! It should be at least okay.
like seriously imagine tumblr posts if they werent typed all lowercase casual chilldude
“Oh my God, I am screaming. Look at these babies, my babies. I am so gay, Rest In Peace me.”
My tumblr posts are actually not that bad as far as punctuation and shit, although I do forget to capitalize or use periods and sometimes run my sentences a bit too long. Liberal usage of emoticons, too.
This may just be because I haven’t been on tumblr long enough :P But I try not to descend to the point where I’m difficult to understand!
