Stromperdalion Trois - Left Treelectric Ladyland, picked up Hortense and Sweet William, and upgrode some weapons. Off to Vizzle-d-Zazzle to pick up Herman. Might have the funbux for Naruto now, too. And then I'm going back to the woods and hunting for Amish Potato Salad.

Like here's the thing -- if you have a paper coffee cup, as long as the lids on tight, you're probably not going to damage the cup by squeezing it too much -- paper gives.

Styrofoam does not give, especially the thick, insulated sort. Also the lid wasn't sitting on it right in the first place, so I think the cup was defective idk.

I don't know in general I feel less inclined to go on long walks than I used to. I don't know if I have less energy and am more out of shape than like a year or two ago, or if I'm just bored of this city. I'm at the part where I'm not having /new and interesting adventures/ anymore -- there's parks I could be going to if I felt like taking a cab out to them, but a lot of the suburbs to the east of Columbus are just massively run down, there's not a whole lot of new stuff in the city proper or things going on in the way of events, and it's September which means there's an influx of college freshman.

College freshman are terrible. I'm /beyond/ tired of college shouting insults at me from cars. I'm tired of them, in general, not having a goddamn clue how to behave, in public, within adult society.

idk I'm remembering when I was a student at OSU briefly, and I went to an Iron and Wine concert and the audience was completely awful to the opening act. Maybe it's just an OSU thing. BGSU had its share of douchebags but I don't remember it being as bad there.

Burnt the fuck out of my hand when a styrofoam coffee cup I was holding cracked and blew up.

Der Jermanismus,

Any idea if patched VC3 is playable on a VitaTV?

Unfortunately, Harper's solution to all the excess nukes was the same as his solution to all those excess books on climate change.

I've hit a new retro low. I'm currently creating a virtual machine on my computer to play a game that only runs on Windows 95.
Someone needs to make a DOSbox for win95/98.

Rrrrgh. I think the two biggest issues I've had with with Win 95/98 games not working on later OSes is bullshit with Quicktime, which is annoying because I'm a fan of Myst-clones and they all use some Mystery Ancient Bosnian version of QuickTime which does not play well with, uh, anything. I have quite a few of these I can't run.

I'm really curious whether Tong Nou and Obsidian will run on Windows 7 at all. Tong Nou had speed issues for me, though it worked alright on my older laptop. Never played Obsidian cause I uh only got it like a week ago. Spring's more an adventure gaming time of year for me.

Other issue is that weird split 16-bit/32-bit mode thing that some games have, though I think Birthright's the only game I have where that's an issue.

Then Creatures 2 just doesn't work in Windows 7 unless you have the gog version idk why !!!


Played a little UT. Always sort of preferred this to UT2K4 anyway. Now I'm in the mood for some, uh, Quake Live, Quake 2, the original unreal... Also Unreal Championship 2, since I think I can play that on my 360 and the 360 controller is actually reasonably designed unlike the, uh, regular XBox controller I have which is the /original flavor Dreamcast model/.

Suik 3 - Up to Alma Kinnan with Chris. Despite my initial dislike of Chris due to her Ch. 1 being wonky, I really like Chris now!

... Fuck, robin williams is still dead.

2014 geopolitics is like a Paradox game with all the AI set on 'completely random.'

Like this is the fucking Syria crisis.

- Syrian Civil War starts.
- Republicans mad at Obama 'cause he doesn't support the rebels.
- Chemical weapons thing happens so Obama's all HM DANG MAYBE WE SHOULD BOMB ASSAD'S DUDES.
- Republicans be all NUH-UH.
- Putin be all "Hey you can't just go invading other countries."
- And then Putin sort-of invades Ukraine.
- Meanwhile, the Ukrainian rebel sort-of attack Malaysia because idk why not.
- Suddenly, a wild Sunni Caliphate approaches!

There is no diachronic sequence of cause and effect here it is just this ridiculous unigram markov chain of shit happening.

Also the UK is about to implode, because it's Thursday.

This is literally when Civ 5 came out and the AI didn't make any sense ONLY REAL.

I don't have time to play games anymore because I spend all my free time drawing adult oriented MLP fanart have a job I got high.

Maybe square could just release Ultimania guides for non-existent games, so I could read those instead of not playing the game I wouldn't play anyway.

@ Aeolus' link:

It's not quite as bad as it looks. Square's released a bunch of games between FFXII and FFXV, it's just that they don't know how math works and have been vacillating between13 and 14 for awhile now.

You just have to remember that FFXV is really like FFXVIII or 20 and it's all okay.

Shining Force is longer than I remember it being, but I still like it. I'm halfway through Chapter 2 now. I don't remember half these fights. I do remember everything being harder than this, but then again, I played it back when concepts of "equipment" and "levels" were foreign to me. Also, enemies are smarter than I forst thought. They don't just rush you, they try to trap you and get you in a position where they can hurt you and then their buddies can come in for the kill. Definitely more intelligent than I thought they were doing at first.

I think the comparable simplicity of SF's mechanics honestly serve it really well. Also wrt SF's difficulty, it's easy to fall into the trap of just using the main dude for everything and underlevelling the healers and mages, which works fine for a bit but then screws you over /reallllllly/ hardcore.

Although I hit the opposite problem in SF3 and, uh, got Synbios underlevelled and ended up overlevelling Grace :S

Anyway, played Outrun 2006 and Suikoden 3 for a bit. About to do some battle in Chisha with Chris. I need to quit neglecting S3 because it's very much the most I've enjoyed an RPG in a very long time :S

Anyway, also in the mood to spend some time with TLS/Saint's Row 2/Unreal Tournament. Actuallky 2K4 in particular but I don't feel like digging it off of my old desktop. Anything /autumnal/ really. Maybe SimCity 4.

I'm putting the shmups on hold 'cause shmups aren't an /autumnal/ thing to me.

1. DoY is fucking delightful. Also honestly I like the chiptunes in that as much as the CD audio, tho i got this weird fetish for TG16 music anyway.

2. The first dungeon is like the worst part of DQ8.

I still don't care about GamerGate (or I guess #GamerGate since we that generation), but the title for this article pretty much sums up everything about 2014 perfectly.

I remember going to a Pizza Rustica sometime in the past three years. It's the one on High Street, in Columbus. I got some focaccia sandwich that wasn't very good. I also remember that some guy forgot their bathroom key at home.

I don't remember anything else about that day, and I have no idea if it was 2012 or 2013 when I went there.

This is bugging the hell out of me.

What's the worst they could do if you don't help them?

I mean besides not giving you any weird dead grandma money.

Only the one this time.

That's Soobel's art. They draw TONS of hat horses.

They also made a wad for... some Western Doom-clone that I think LucasArts made. With fat horses.

http://soobel.planet.ee/outlaws/NWX.html is there webpage. It... should be SFW.


--- edit ---

That shoulda said fat horses. Preserving hat horses for hossterity.
