The Jerz

My wife is from New Jersey so I've spent a decent amount of time in various parts of it, and I don't really get all the hate it gets. It's definitely in my top 5 for states, and one of the very few where I think I could live without going insane (too far south and the weather gets gross, I'd feel super isolated in the midwest, New England is terrible, and I've never been to the west coast).

Did you really just defend NJ against the hate it gets by hating on six states at once?

That's a very New Jersey thing to do.

Did no one notice that Mesh left a pretty normal comment?

I'm pretty sure he MEANT to post....
"This reminds me of the time I bought like a 28-pack of New Jersey underwear because I thought it would protect me from hives, you know, like bluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurghhhhh, right?

That darn corn"
but accidentally posted something normal.

The Hives are one of those aughts bands I was never too familiar with. I always get them confused with the Strokes -- I know one has Julian Cassablancas, and the other one was from Sweden.

Now, the Shins I actually listen to. Oh Inverted World was actually the... third CD I got after going away to college, and the first one I actually got IN Bowling Green (well, after starting college -- I picked up Pollard's From a Compound Eye there during some honor's program visitation day that winter. I opted out of the honor's program. This was a very good thing I did).

@ Artimicia: The PC version has numerous improvements.

@ Artim and Mesh in regard to LIQUID DIETS

I totally get this. My screwed up guts has had me living off of unsweetened almond milk and a rotating protein source for years.  In fact for well over one year I ate the same meal daily and survived just fine-- ALMOND MILK+broccoli+red peppers+tomatos+garlic+brown rice protein+garlic+GARLIC+nutritional yeast blended into a soup, store in tupperware, live happily.

That actually sounds alright unless you like
got vanilla almond milk by mistake
then it would probably not be alright at all.

But yeah, foof. So I couldn't get out to the grocery for dinner tonight because of another weird electrical storm (did I mention that there was a fire in a neighborhood REALLY close to me from lightning last week?) and like

basically I just ate a bunch of guacamole, olives, partially decayed figs, and a kvass longboy I found in Cincinnati last month.



 I have way too many plushies as it is.





Not possible.

It's like, I'm a grown man. Do I really need a giant stuffed goat chilling out on top of my Dreamcast games?

Probably not but I'm at the point where guacamole and a kvass longboy seem like an acceptable dinner, so that Rubicon's already been burnt.

Legits, I would just straight-up chug marinara if it was good marina.

TIL a new way to see Great Tits besides bugging my wife all the time.

Couldn't help it.

Will consider deleting.

Suikoden - Did the Dwarf Trail and Dwarf Vault. Current party is... Tir, Kirkis, Gremio, and Valerie for the mandatories, and then Pahn and Sheena for the bonus friends. Gremio's in the back row so I REALLY need to replace his Counter Up rune.

Probably going to play some Suikoden Tenmei no Chikai tomorrow since it's still too hot to go outside. Actually I was going to do that today but then I found some text issues in Passage of the Book that needed fixed.

... At that, I kind of want to try Lunatic Dawn: Odyssey/figure out what the deal with the Neo Atlas games is.

... I wonder if ProjectEGG is legit and if so, if it's strictly a monthly subscription thing, or if that's optional >:T

... what sort of hell am I wandering into.

--- edit ---

Okay I know I make fun of Chiepoo a lot without having any actual awareness of Suik4 but

sweet dang.

--- edit 2 ---

More Suikoden - Did the Kwanda RoPUPPIES! PUPPIES! YEY!why doesn't kuromimi's brother have a mouthPUPPIES!

Suikoden: Tenmei no Chikai - Started a game in 1101 as the long-haired good fellow and spent like two years building up the province/fighting too many bears. Nobody was showing up in my province to recruit. Not totally sure how the Summon Hero mechanic works -- I think I need to be using that maybe. Anyway eventually DID get someone to join me but then I accidentally abandoned my province when I was trying to send the other guy off to claim another province, so.

This does seem to have some additional text compared to the DOS and NES versions which I should probably try to understand idk. Music's remixes of the NES soundtrack I guess. It's groovy.

I think in general I like strategy games where /internal strife/ is a bigger issue than external pressures. BKoAC seems like it's /that/.

you know that thing when you're flipping through pictures and you find one of yourself, and the only thing you can think is like
wait
who the heck is that?

Checking CNN and found a headline that's p much the best ambiguous parse of the decade though:

"Getting hard to find debate moderators."

So I guess my original cynicism wasn't entirely /wrong/ but misguided in the sense that it sounds like the procgen stuff works /good/ and it's the actual game side of things that's kinda *wavery hand motion, high-pitched non-committal mouth noise*

Self-importance.

Entitlement mentalities.

We all have our demons.

haps:

HavingExperiencing a bit of a fruit fly incident.

afaik the problem is that they... don't go through normal screen rendery libraries/interfaces/APIs?/whatever DirectX is, so those kinds of tools don't seem to actually hook them. also re Falcom webstores, dlsite only has midi music for LoH1/the Lord Monarch games, whereas the other storefronts seem to pack them with mod music as well.

Anyway, gonna go play Suik 1 for a bit. Only other gaming haps was getting the item details popup resized in Lunatic Dawn.

Suikoden - Recruited Gaspar and Sheena. Did very little else.

Suikoden - Up to the Elf Village. idk why they're being jerks. it's not Suikoden's elf v human conflict is parable for nuclear proliferation or anything.

Also discovered that if I want to play older PC Legend of Heroes stuff comfortably, I'm going to need to set up a Windows 10 VM on my Windows 10 PC so I can force the to run in a Window/use my laptop for dictionary fun. To clarify, I can't run them windowed normally, and I can't screenshot them for some reason, so checking a dictionary would be problematic. Also true of Sorcerian to a lesser extent, although I CAN screenshot /the text/ and nothing else in that.

ALSO discovered that Artdink made some Oldtimey Japanese Merchant sim that... looks very Lunatic Dawn/Atlas-ish but I don't think you can buy it anywhere now.

I had a cup of cheese for lunch and very little else because uh...

I need to be better about not forgetting to eat.

Suikoden - Got stuck on Tai Ho's dumb dice game. Eventually got past that. Liberated the castle. Picked up some dudes. Did the Lepant thing. Murdered Kraze inadvertantly but oh welpers. Found a damp elf. Recruited Juffo's niece. Fed Gremio a speed crystal.

Also imagining a Suikoden LP but instead of doing the world map and recruitment bits, bounce over to Bandit Kings of Ancient China instead, and then drop in Tendou for the fortress stuff. For extra bonus fun I think I found some Water Margin porn games while I was shunting down Falcom stuff last week.

... Actually no this needs to be a real game nevermind. I mean Suikoden with simcity-ish fortress building and a strategic meta, not the boobs. Anyway.

LD95 - Rewrote 50?ish lines of dialog, then repeatedly murdered a nun because the dialog you get when you loot her corpse and play dice to see who gets what is broken.

Did confirm that your party members restock with their own money when you rest at the inn. Can probably use this to farm torches. No clue if the party NPCs eventually get mad at you for taking their stuff. They were chill with me murdering a nun although I think we're all evil alignment, so they would be.

I wonder if guards stop you from murdering nuns in order-aligned towns.
