    The one thing that would bring me back to Warframe is racing. I loved racing other players to exits at the end of missions and the feeling of nailing that bullet jump to sneak under an awkward door flying past the two guys that caught the lip. It never got old.

    I heard the developers had hinted at a race mission that was tabled due to issues, breaks my heart.

    Edit: the challenge rooms never did it justice and the lua halls are too cryptic to feel like a race.

    Both Bastion and Transistor from supergiant games are incredible experiences. The theme and feel of both are incredible, masterpiece soundtracks and solid gameplay. I'd expect you to enjoy them if you liked Kentucky route zero, I never played that one but it's been on my to do list for years.

    Another along the atmospheric indie track is Ori and the blind forest. Platformer with incredible movement and flow. Might seem a little slow until you get the best fast moving ability but the theme and artwork really kept me entertained.

    I'd like to second Factorio, adding that you haven't really tried pipeline games until you tried the very best, Factorio really stands apart. It might be better if you have an experienced friend to learn it with.

    PUBG had a lot of issues but for a wild time with 3 friends it's a great time these days. Also, I find it more fun the less competitive you are so it's one of the only shooters I play anymore.

    Getting over it with Bennett folly could be up your alley too if you liked Stanley parable. It's... strange but worth it.

    Tea, with lots of cream and sugar. Warm blanket, Terry Pratchett book, favourite album, and someone I care about to chat with. Oh and to have had a good, hearty meal within the last couple hours.

    Bastion's soundtrack is excellent too, regularly listened to amongst my gamer friends who need some background music. I think transistor has a better one but I'm a sucker for female vocals in that style.

    Factorio isn't really about the music, I usually find or make a playlist that keeps you in "the zone." The kind of zone where you think you've been playing for a couple hours but the sun is rising through the window and you're not sure what day it is anymore.

    Second on both Factorio and Bastion! Very different but both are incredible games. Supergiant Games, who made Bastion, also made Transistor which is wonderful.

    It's more understandable when you consider common behavior when you're lonely. Missed meals, missed sleep, intense irritability or stress, poor or impulsive decisions. It's the compounding of each effect on another that kills you, not any one on its own.

    People's knowledge of enforcing authority and their knowledge of enforcing freedom sadly lack parity. As a Cuban American she was biased, considered him more entitled and arrogant rather than having a legitimate grievance.

    I would love to see pictures of that! It sounds awesome. How big is it? Are you consuming a basement or just a table in a room? Is humidity or mold or dirt a problem?

    I want to hear the answer to the rats as pets vs food question. Can I be a rat farmer for the main purpose of solving snake starvation issues?

    Hitch 22 - Christopher Hitchens
    Much sadder than I expected but I'm only 5 chapters in. It's incredible hearing it in his voice in the audiobook.

    The Boy who was Raised as a Dog - Bruce D. Perry
    A look into child abuse and the challenges of trying to help those children. It's heavy.
