[Twitch Prime] System Shock 2 - Free

17
Found 7th Dec
You awake from the cold chill of your cryo-tube to discover cybernetic implants grafted to your flesh and the crew of the starship Von Braun slaughtered. The infected roam the halls, their screams and moans beckoning you to join them as the rogue artificial intelligence known as SHODAN taunts and ridicules your feeble attempt to unravel the horrifying mystery of the derelict starship Von Braun.

"Holder"what you holding?


Placeholder, he wanted to be the first to post after what I'm sure was absolutely humiliating when he was beaten at posting the Homefront freebie

Having read the description twice, I still have no idea what is on offer.

'He' - Did you just assume my gender?
Nah, not humiliating, I saw that it was free (homefront) and by the time I went to post it'd been posted 23 seconds ago, it happens, as I'm sure someone like @BuzzDuraband or @mixmixi will tell you, this was listed as free a few moments after, 'tis all.
RE the Holder, it was placed there whilst I got the games description from steam, which I didn't have open at the time, not that I have to explain myself to you.

What’s homefront and what’s freebie, please? Does homefront holds the freebie? And why?

Claimed thx

Yeah, my girlfriends name is Nathan too!

TIL that having Amazon Prime means you have Twitch Prime if you link the accounts. Wish I had known nearly a year ago

Um, your username is Nathan...

Bet you can't guess my name in one.

Maybe not everyone uses your formula for username selection?

I think you need to have a talk with your "girlfriend"

It would be a fare assumption though?

Personally I try to avoid assumption and consider it to be full of pitfalls. If you think it's fare (sic) then let's look at the usernames in this thread. Ideally I'd prefer to know what Scottc123's formula is but in lieu of that info we can look at what can be inferred.

All I know from Scottc123's remark is that the nathan part of nathan3007's username is believed to be indicative of gender on the basis of being a forename, and this logic can be applied to Scottc123. Let's see if the other usernames contain a forename:

JC2MULTIPLAYER000 - No

thedoctor1ko - Yes, it contains Ed.

jjsm639 - No

mixmixi - Not one I recognise

t.rex - yes, it contains Rex

thecresta - Not that I can see.

So without having to worry about how the formula deals with non-gender specific names we can already see that it fails at the first test condition and conclude that it's not a "fare assumption".

Ed as in Edward or Edwina?
Mixmixi has mimi and kisses in it?
Thecresta has esta in it?

But that not the same as Nathan3007? It would be fare to assume this person is male and if nathan3007 is a female and is offended by that innocent assumption then screw nathan3007! (I doubt HE cares) The idea that we all have to tiptoe around each other in case the easily offended get offended is ludicrous and that way we all lose.. get a grip

Well thanks for not just replying that I have way too much time on my hands I replied to what you asked specific to what you quoted.

Not everyone uses their personal details, or they might use 3 letters from forename, 3 from surname, ddmm from dob. One place I worked it was 6 from surname then 1 from forename which wasn't great for Kim Wan I can assure you.

If instead you had said it's fair to assume nathan3007's gender then I'd have agreed (though preferred the slight distinction of presume) but not whilst being derisive as the person I replied to was.
