  1. Erf, boyfriend decided to ragequit on, of all things, Minecraft. Even on easy, he kept on getting ganged up on and slaughtered by enemies, to the point where he couldn't last much longer than a few in-game days there. I feel bad for him...
  2. Second case of the virus in our county in the same number of days. My boyfriend's paranoid to the point of not wanting to go out and forbidding me to do so. This really sucks...
  3. Keeping things classy, Jon St. Jon just posted a twitter feed of him saying Covid-19-related pickup lines in his classic Duke Nukem voice. So, I had to ask him the most logical and sensible thing you could ask him... ... How would he voice an evil counterpart to his other famous (or, rather, infamous) character, Big the Cat, in a Sonic game, and would it be like Duke Nukem but evil?
  4. It's fine. I just hope it isn't in the city I'm at, that would be horrible.
  5. County, as in a smaller part of a US state. I'm in Indiana.
  6. Great, my county has its first confirmed case of the virus. We knew it was only a matter of time, with us surrounded on almost all sides by other counties with confirmed cases, so...
  7. I've had this happen to me, once; I was selling a fridge that I had bought a year prior (because we couldn't keep it in our new apartment), and I was sent a check for $2000 to pay for it. Had to get bailed out of the resulting scam by my boyfriend's mom.
  8. Anyone longing for Reaganomics, right now? Anyone? Or maybe the Lewinksy scandals? Or Watergate? I do; at least those stupid mistakes didn't outright KILL people, even peripherally...
  9. I heard that, if you didn't file for 2019 but did file for 2018, it would defer to that.
  10. But I haven't been used as a dependent for years. I live with my boyfriend, on Medicaid and SNAP, but that's it; I'm a virtual ghost as far as taxes go.
  11. I've not been able to work since 2010, and thus have not been able to file taxes. I've been labeled as a dependent on my boyfriend's parents' taxes, before we moved out, but that's it.
  12. So, from what I read, my boyfriend will get a check, since he gets Social Security through his dad, and those on SS or SSDI will have their info filed for them through SSA. I, on the other hand, have been trying to get on SSI for years, and only have Medicaid and SNAP as my income. I'm not sure if that means I'll be excluded from qualifying or not.
  13. Not sure if this is true, so please correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard that, for people who are on disability or whatnot that don't or can't pay taxes, they should still file for taxes for 2019 before the May deadline, so they can get into the records and be eligible for the stimulus check in the US. Is this true, and if so, isn't that fraud?
  14. Looking it up, it's a Gobot called "Water Walk".
  15. Also, this is rather ridiculous: It basically says that gangs in Rio De Janeiro are enforcing their own pandemic lockdown on the city, stating "If the government won't do the right thing, then organized crime will". This is just so wild...
  16. So, it's official: my state is under "stay at home" orders. Staring to hate this, and starting to be glad I panic-shopped for food, earlier this month...
  17. Erf, the county just north of us just had their first confirmed infectee, so it's only a matter of time before it hits our area. I'm getting super nervous about this...
  18. Travel ban is in effect in my state, though not necessarily my county. However, the nearest city that we go to for recreation is in a county that has 4 confirmed cases of the virus in it, so we're pretty much boned.
  19. Ugh, my boyfriend's mom had to be talked out of going out for groceries, in her state (she's in her 60's and highly disabled with various maladies that make her susceptible to Covid-19), because his dad convinced her that it wasn't anything to worry about. And it took both of his sisters to convince her, both of which were medical practitioners. Not to get political or against Fox News and the GOP or anything, but I'm starting to agree that their rhetoric is poisoning their mind, at the very least about how they don't consider it serious...
  20. Bumping. May add in some PC games we have left over that we've been wanting to sell, a while back. They are: One Must Fall 2097 (CD) Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego (CD, comes with booklet and World Almanac) Raptor: Call of the Shadows (CD) Beast Wars: Transformers (CD)
  21. It's why I'm refusing to play the game, again, until this blows over. I don't want to play a game that reminds me of the craziness going on in the world...

    WTB: Loose E.T. Cart

    I had one, but I think my roommate and I got rid of it, a while back. If it's not here, it's likely at his family's old house, but thanks to this virus scare, we can't really go out, much, so sorry.
  23. Not sure if this is appropriate, as it's a video game-based board game and not a video game itself, but I recently acquired a first edition Doom board game and expansion by Fantasy Flight Games. However, while it says it's complete, I noticed it's missing 1 grenade token and three of the six Hell Knight figurines in it are painted. I'm asking if anyone who has a used, unwanted copy of this game would be willing to send me these items, so I can have a complete, unmarked game? I'm willing to pay for the figurines, if shipping for just the token is too expensive. Thanks.
  24. So, since it's only a week away from being released, and it's been confirmed to have new content (such as a new chapter that supposedly ties it into Doom 2016/Doom Eternal), what do you guys think the new content will be for the re-release of Doom 64? For me, given the origin of the re-release and the crew behind it, I'm going to say it'll be the Outcast Levels from the Doom Absolution TC. Either way, it'll be cool to see what new stuff the porting crew is planning on doing with it.
