@FimbulFlower I think it's probably possible to use a cross-poster and still have a good feed here, it just takes a little consideration and I'd rather that be a matter of social convention (people unfollow/block out of annoyance) than any more explicit platform handling. But of course instance admins are free to manage that how they see fit.

using a twitter cross-poster and posting a bunch of stuff that people here usually put behind a CW out of courtesy is kinda the masto equivalent of having a loud public phone conversation in a cafe, please put a tiny bit more effort into your presence here.

@sinvega @RobF there are definitely buried treasures all around, and the occasional crashed freighter or ancient ruin with some stuff to dig up.

@BrendanSinclair also the Adlib/Sound Blaster version of the end theme youtu.be/TUgoNeH3gl0?t=13m22s is weirdly similar to 1) Alberto Balsalm by Aphex Twin youtube.com/watch?v=ihyQf8mww3 and 2) youtube.com/watch?v=-MtDLRvpx- , both composed later of course. Philippe Vachey is one of my favorite composers from that era and could get great sound out of those FM synth chips. youtu.be/Q62UFv4QiUo?t=54m18s

@BrendanSinclair I actually somehow managed to beat that game back in the day!

@BrendanSinclair I would legit put those purple gargoyle monsters into a Doom mod.

Wore the same pair of shoes today that I wore Sunday, and there's still a decent bit of Marin county trail dust on em. I like being reminded I've had adventures.
