I love Van Halen. I met my first love when I was coming up to 17 in a pub drinking Pernod and Blackcurrant and Van Halen and Jump were on the big scree. That was 1983 and she was lovely.

So after seeing the mention of Wreckfest in this thread I decide to check out the previews.  The game has my 9 year old son's name written all over it so I call him over to the computer and The conversation goes like this:
Dad: "I've got a game that you need to save your money for." 
Son (While watching the trailer on Steam): "That's pretty cool but why do I need to save my money?"
Dad: "Because it's $45 and if you want it you'll have to save for it."
Son: "Why can't I just play it on your account?"
Dad: "Huh?"
Son (Pointing at the screen): "You already own it."
Dad: "I don't think so. It just came out."
Son (Pointing at the screen again): Yep, right there. I'll just use your account.  Thanks Dad!  Now when can I have the computer?"

Apparently I bought this game in 2015, (Greenlight? Kickstarter?) and forgot all about it.  I can't imagine I paid $45 for it.

Playing OOTP 19, BATTLETECH, and...Wreckfest.  ;D

Happy Birthday Jarhead and O of OJ's Dad.
lol - but you didn't pay $45 for it. IIRC I bought it ages ago for something daft like 10 - it was really cheap so when I thought I'd burned my money (there was very little progress), I was like "Oh well".

So I'm pretty sure you got it cheap.  O0

Which is rare.  I usually spend $45 on $10 games.  O0

After a solid and enjoyable week of Rule the Waves, I am switching to Civ4 with the Caveman-to-Cosmos mod.

I've had these too. They suck, but the whole point is to try and sleep. I think they even say no electronic devices after 2100, or something.

I did man. For the last two hours before I went to sleep I studied Korean. The room was too bright, the covers weird, every probe in every place.

It was autistic overstimulated hell
