>game takes place in Canada
why don't more games do this?
That would actually be great, there's some pretty fantastic roads, that can go from smooth as fuck clear and beautiful to "I'm glad there are streetlights to show me where the road is"
In Mass Effect, Vancouver is capital of the Earth
not the guy you were talking to but i read the books and it's actually half decent imo.
That's just some ego-stroking because the devs were based in Canada. I don't think anybody has based a game in Canada because of it's potential as an interesting and unique game setting
there is none
What, Vancouver ain't even the capital of fucking British Columbia. Fucking Bioware, man.
Not the other guy but also from Van. Everything is super expensive and we have the official worst housing market in North America. Every home is bought by chinese foreigners who leave them empty.
It's the people, mainly. They're so fucking full of themselves, as well as retarded decisions like making a cauldron for the Olympics that's too expensive to keep lit. not too mention how expensive housing is. I'm only staying here because I got an alright job and
some good friends
Not him but I lived there for a couple years. It's honestly fine and I had things/places I enjoyed, good food if you have the money, but oh so expensive, people are hard to connect with and I much prefer snow and blue sky to the dreariness.
Did you meet the crew from NTV News?
If you're into winter sports Calgary's right by the mountains, has much of the culture you would look for in Vancouver in terms of international restaurants and shit, is friendlier, has better traffic and isn't rainy as fuck. Also not cheap though.
Seriously though, Surrey is the hive for east indians, likewise, Richmond is owned by asians, though admittedly they've essentially claimed most of the city. If you want white people, North Van and West Van are your best bets, both of which happen to be some of the most expensive neighbourhoods in the entire country.
If you're moving for school specifically, Vancouver isnt actually that bad of a choice, since you would just be living on residence probably, and if not you would probably be able to find some roommates. That being said, canadian universities charge way more for non citizens, I pay about a fifth of what you would likely end up paying. If you want to go for school, your other options are for specifically major universities are Victoria (UVic), Kingston (Queens), Waterloo, London (Western), Calgary(UofA), Montreal(McGill), and if you want to live in the middle of nowhere Saskatoon (UofS). Ive left out Toronto because its a shithole, but I guess you could go there too, apparently UofT is a decent school. There are also plenty of smaller school you could potentially go to, and if you really want BC UBC has a campus in the Okanagan in Kelowna, That being said I cant tell you about what the cities themselves are really like, even Toronto being a shithole is just from widespread secondhand information, obtained both on and off of /v/.
shows how much I know, I never leave Vancouver
this picture doesnt even apply to me, it never falls below -10 here
>mfw magnitude 4.3 tremor a couple weeks ago
I have trouble with their distance measurements mainly, I actually use them myself for my height and shit like that, but if someone tells me a mountain is 10,000 feet high I dont know what the fuck to do with that information. Its even worse because my dad likes to describe distances with feet and miles anyway so half the time I dont know what he's talking about because I dont know how far the distances really are.
