Introduction, important accommodation to consider 

I have thalassophobia, which is an intense fear of deep water. The exact things that trigger this vary wildly from person to person, and can even be extremely specific within a single person, but my own case is pretty severe.

This can even include simply images or games with deep water in them. There's a lot of games that I love but haven't been able to beat, or only beat once with a lot of struggle or help, because they had particularly anxiety-inducing water sections. There's a lot of games that I'm interested in but can't play at all because water is too central to the gameplay.

I don't expect everyone to be aware of this or remember it, but if we're mutuals, then I'd very much appreciate a CW on anything that you might expect to be triggering in this regard. Like I said, the exact things that trigger it vary a lot and come in different degrees, even for a single person, but here's some good rules of thumb for myself:

- if the camera is above water and far from the surface, then it's usually fine
- if the camera is below water and it's significantly deeper and wider than a normal swimming pool, then it's usually bad
- if it involves creepy-looking aquatic creatures, then it's usually bad

Introduction 

Hey everyone, I'm Beret! I've been on Elekk.xyz for the past year and a half or so but decided to come here at the recommendation of a friend. This place seems nice and cozy!

I'm into the basic nerdy stuff: vidjagames and anime and stuff. And according to legend, I'm also into creative stuff like gamedev, drawing, and writing, but uh, we'll see if I actually end up doing anything with those.

I try to be positive, and I talk mostly about games I like, with occasional discussion of more serious stuff. So, I guess that's the gist of it! It's cool to see you all!

i think that if you don't mind spoilers that's fine but i've known people who don't respect other people minding spoilers and that sucks

Ya ever think about how the overwhelming majority of people haven't actually read the laws of wherever they live, nor are they taught in any comprehensive formal way, and yet we're all just expected to know? Like, basically everything most of us know about the law is something we heard from someone else, who probably heard it from someone else, who probably heard it from someone, etc.

Fun fact: when I was a kid and I first heard that you couldn't drink and drive, I thought they were referring to any drink. I kept thinking people were gonna get arrested for having water in the car

So in the Hitman games, you can hurl a briefcase at people to knock them out at medium-short ranges.

When you throw at a specific person it's guaranteed to hit, which means that behind the scenes it's doing a bit of seeking. Usually this is unnoticeable since people move at like, walking speeds.

So what happens when you chuck it right as someone takes off on a jetski?youtube.com/watch?v=GuzZTl5nSD

You have to pick one of these options to be the final playable character in Smash Bros. Which one do you choose?
