Who Was I?
I used to play, rate, and leave constructive feedback on Portal 2 workshop maps frequently. One day I may return to Portal 2, but probably won't be saying much about the newly subscribed maps I play because it is just not worth it anymore. It's a real mess with 800,000+ entries , where it is a freak occurrence something is decent. I have an ever-growing backlog of maps I want to play. Another reason I am not returning any time soon is not just for personal reasons, but technical reasons as well with how Portal 2 and the Workshop handles play history. It's a bug that needs fixing and hasn't been fixed in years since it was confirmed to me through Steam Support. Valve Time™ :steamfacepalm: Contraption Maker doesn't have these issues.

Who Am I Now?
Contraption Maker is the second most played game in my library. I contribute to the Contraption Maker Workshop more than Portal 2. The Contraption Maker Workshop is way more manageable with under 10,000 entries . There is a much higher concentration of great entries for play, which is very worthwhile. Also found some great users to be friends with by playing these entries!

Who Will I Be?
I have made mistakes in the past but I hope to get better with my approaches.

How can I be both so hyper-excited and super-meditatively calm at the same time?

Yo, I now have my own custom build nearly working. Had to get a USB network adapter 'cause there wasn't room inside the case, but my hat's off to you, good sir.

Also JOURNEY IS OUT ON STEAM, FINALLY :steamhappy: :steamhappy: :steamhappy: :p2chell: :p2chell: :p2chell: That timeless classic and Epic timed exclusive that was once on PlayStation only. It's now on Steam. Look for me...

Hey Batcat, can you open up https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198087838473/recommended/293660 to comments and try to keep that conversation there? You could continue the conversation on https://steamcommunity.com/id/wildgoosespeeder/recommended/293660 as well. Thanks.

Yeah, I kinda feel the same way with TRI: starts out nicely paced, but like an aging computer, gets slower over time until the ending.

Can't say it wasn't worth it though, despite that it's not the best puzzle/exploration game out there. I learned to think with triangles!
