Commenter Of The Day: Pirates! Gold Edition

Illustration for article titled Commenter Of The Day: Pirates! Gold Edition

We wasted a full year of childhood development playing games on SEGA Channel as a child, including the popular-with-certain-nerds Pirates! Gold. The game set you as the captain of a pirate ship in the rough-and-tumble Caribbean in the early colonization period. You had a large map to explore and you could sword fight, naval battle, charm, and trade your way to victory. There was even an opportunity to woo various females in order to secure a lovely wife for extra points. And while I didn't play the game on an actual naval warship, a la Alex Roy and a PSP, commenter PatFromGundo came pretty close.


I used to do something like this. I would play "The Sims" while my roommate was having sex with an actual human girl.

Ha, excellent. Reminds me of when I was randomly paired with a roommate my freshman year of college. My new strange roommate met a girl and it seems like they became all slobbery and head over heels about 20 seconds after meeting each other. They nicknamed each other "oats" and "bunches" was truly disgusting. Let's just say I spent several nights pretending (and praying mercilessly) to be asleep. Luckily they were so in love that they moved into their own place after a couple months and left me the room to myself.

In on topic news, a college in Boston is trying to enforce a "no sex when your roommate is present" rule.


But what if you include your roommate?
