Is concern over labelling one's relationship really an American thing though? I'm not American, but whether 2 people are dating, in a serious relationship, just having fun etc. are distinctions I've often heard discussed around me.

I watched "Blade Runner" for the first time (The Final Cut version). Wow, that was an amazing movie. And that ending too! I feel like it sucker punched me, but in a good way. I am surprised its taken me this long to finally see the movie. I feel like I need to watch it again. I know there is a sequel, but I am worried it may taint the intentional ambiguity of this ending. Is it weird that I feel like it should have been 30 minutes to an hour longer to develop the protagonists a bit more?

Hey dutchvri, I think you might be talking about tomorrow'a strip, cos there is nothing in today's that talks about that. So, gentle reminder that discussing patreon sneak peeks in this forum before they post to the main site is against the rules.

Yeah that was my bad, not deliberate mind you (i know the rules), but I will try to be more careful.

Thanks for the reminder!

One of my favorite games of all time is Obsidian, a first-person point-and-click adventure game from 1997. It was critically acclaimed but flopped due to poor marketing and timing. To this day, almost nobody I've talked to has heard of it.

It is definitely on the more surreal side of adventure games, and feels like a sort of sci-fi Alice in Wonderland.

This particular section has a decent sampling of the game's brand of weirdness:

Okay, that felt like watching one of Joel G's ENA videos.

D.R.O.D. - Deadly Rooms of Death (I think it was by Webfoot games or something like that)
You're playing as a specialty exterminator and each time you move so to the monsters.

Hey, I played a little of that game waaaay back in the day after a family friend recommended it to me. I wish I'd played more of it than I did, as I typically enjoyed that style of puzzle game, but for some reason, kid me was frightened of the protagonist's animated portrait in the corner.

Edit: Just started listening to the ost, and whoa. I did not expect the music to be this good.

We were just limited to the demo growing up as it came on a disc with a bunch of other computer games. Being that we were mostly limited to secondhand games, I never did get to play past the first 50 rooms. But yeah, the soundtrack was really good for the time it came out. To the extent of my knowledge, nobody's submitted any arrangements of the D.R.O.D. OST to OverClocked ReMix yet.

Now I'm not condoning what the subscript says Yay did, but I do understand where they're coming from in having done so.
(My social battery has been cut down to a quarter being sick.)

Yeah, they need to DTR. At least the selfie got 'mysteriously' deleted. I hope Yay (or someone else) takes Christopher to task.

Welcome, and if I remember the Oz books right, your name is actually quite tricky to pronounce correctly. Get it even slightly wrong and it doesn't work.

I like this, the same event from another vantage point.   Hasn't Clinton met some of these AI persons already?  Clinton and Yay interacting could be interesting.
