I bought Civ 4 from steam sales. I bet I'm going to suck at it, but I've always felt I need to give it a try.

Try Europe Universalis 3/4 or Crusader Kings 2 -- the whole point there is to suck /fantastically/.

Sonic Adventure - Did Tail's Sky Chase and didn't realize that I could lock onto enemies and that this was basically Panzer Dragoon WHICH I WAS PLAYING LAST WEEK. I am not smart. Also did some Knuckles thing.

I don't like PF Changs it's just like, my office is on the fucking outskirts of Dublin so dining options are:

- PF Changs
- BJs (fuck ew. Found... foreign non-food objects in food here)
- Noodles and Company (also found bugs in food here)
- Panera
- World's shittiest sushi restaurant
- World's other shittiest sushi restaurant
- Starbucks
- Macaroni Grill (ew)
- World's shittiest Chipotle (found... foreign non-food objects in food here again).
- The Subway where the guy got fired for rubbing his dick on the bread.
- World's shittiest greek restaurant.
- Gas station (also found bugs in food here)
- Alrightish Chinese restaurant but the woman that owns it is fucking psychotic and I don't want to deal with her.
- Cafeteria, where food options include "clif bars" and "Sun chips".

Protip: If you're at like PF Changs and you get a huge chunk of bok choy, check under the goddamn stems for caterpillars.

God my soul is barfing.

So I had my 4th date last night and we finally made out. It was my first time doing that, I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl.

Also I think I'm in love, damn arent I a cheesy person.

psh big deal, *I* got some more Saturn games.

WHO NEEDS GIRLS WHEN YOU CAN HAVE SEGATA SANSHIRO.

I AM NOT LONELY.

HONEST.

Seriously though, congrats for getting to bases farther than I have even attempted to golf the basketball through.

(Apropos to mail order Saturn games: I had to clean out my mailbox because I hadn't checked my mail since, IDK, early october.

That thang was FULL).

It's 12 AM, AKA let's buy weird shit on eBay and regret it later o'clock!

JOB STUFF:

- I'm apparently getting a raise. My manager was like "I KNOW YOU PROBABLY WANTED A BIGGER RAISE THAN THIS BUT THIS IS ALL WE COULD AFFORD."

I don't really even need a raise, I'm aware there's NOT a lot of money in the team to go around, and I wasn't even pursuing one so I hope Test Lead or someone wasn't telling him I was asking for more than they're giving me :T

Also I think most of everyone I know is getting laid off or something. Shit's weird right now.

Shit's super weird.

FRUIT UPDATE:

- Hachiya persimmons are def really good and probably better than fuyus although yeah the unripe bits in hachiyas are like OH GOD DID I JUST EAT TALC.

- The Aroy-D frozen durian I got on Sunday tastes like goddamn rump roast and it's freaking me out. Fruit should not taste like meat. Also it's like, not... fully ripe and has cruchy strands in it? Eugh :( Some guy that looks like Jesus recommended this in a youtube video and I am dissapoint :(((

- Other frozen durian's fairing better. Still not sure WHAT cultivar I had in Cleveland. The Aroy-D was monthong, other frozen durian was musang king cultivar apparently, and whatever I had in Cleveland tastes more like the musang king.

- I like medjool dates better than golden dates. idk what it is, the golden dates have this weird aspartamey sugary-but-off taste to them.

- I need more coffee juice.

KANJI UPDATE:

- I'm having an easier time memorizing kanji if I eschew flashcards, select a list of 10 to 'remember' for a given day, and just force myself to actively recall all of them without prompts every hour or so.

I think I can apply this to other things I need to memorize.

Gamestop... so pretty much a busier day than Black Friday for us.

And the amount of customers isn't the worst part. We're in a fairly wealthy neighborhood so naturally it's full of kids that get $700 worth of gift cards and get all pissy because the $400 console their parents bought them wasn't exactly the one they wanted.

They could just buy the OTHER 400 dollar console with the gift card, all the worthwhile games for both systems, and still have 300 dollars left over, though!

ALSO CAN SOMEBODY MAKE A LAW WHERE YOU HAVE TO PLAY ACTUAL BEATLES MUSIC INSTEAD OF SIMPLY HAVING WHATEVER WHENEVER THEY'RE ABOUT TO PLAY THAT BECAUSE FFS actually I don't like Christmas music in general but SERIOUSLY WHAT THE HELL PAUL WHAT THE DOUBLEHELL.

I've been playing  Sonic Adventure lately.

On the one hand, this is not a good game. On the other hand, I'm finding it more /fun/ than a lot of things.

The thing with getting a Vita is that's another console I'd have to allocate mental real estate to.

Getting a 360 actually caused me some emotional distress for realsies.

Recent imported fruit/dango/Calpico kick has resulted in me visiting a lot of Asian grocery stores.

The tank of live, depressed-looking frogs being kept in a mesh bag was particularly uncomfortable.

The SaGa games suck.

However, I don't think they suck particularly more than any of Square's other series, and compared to like Final Fantasy, they suck in a way that I find /really/ enjoyable.

This looks cool but my problem with games that are "PROC GEN EVERYTHING" is that you basically have two kinds of developers:

1 - Those that take procedural generation as an easy out for creating huge game worlds without the awareness of the kind of detail you need to put into your generation algorithms, AI, etc. so that you can generate something that's actually fun to explore and surprising.

2 - I forgot where I was going with this.

Also anyone remember Noctis?

Shut up you douchenozzle BE MORE JOY.

Played Sonic 3 a bit and I still have no idea why I don't like Sonic games.

Vice City - Found a thing, did a rampage, did a phone mission.

-- today update --

Also messed around with San Andreas because I wanted to test out some lighting mods, which necessitated... a lot of downgrading and reinstalling stuff. Anyway, just found some photos and drove around San Fiero, because doing so is relaxation.

Oh also did the last of the Zero missions, which was... actually pretty neat.
