@tomara: I want to say I can sort of relate -- mostly a bunch of my coworkers from the past three years are kind of in limbo now. I personally was lucky -- but if I go into details that'd probably identify where I work, so'p.

Also ffffffff spent 20 minutes on something that was an obvious solution because it didn't occur to me that the tool I was using was just giving wrong output.

Also dang. Childhood. Whoops. Need to stop GISing old books.

Dice, if you want to enter the lucrative Youtube market maybe you can do an RPG themed version of this

I like Ephemeral Rift's videos more than I should.

I also like juice a lot.

Why are you paying in cash son it's the 90s we have debit cards now.

Alternatively, after they gives you the bill, take the change out of their hand one coin at a time, in the most fumbling way possible.

@klyde: idk about Saints Row 4, but 3's supposed to be fairly succinct. 2 and 3 aren't terribly difficult, give you a lot of checkpoints in missions, have really navigatable cities, and in general do a REALLY good job of respecting the player's time. It's not like GTAV where you need like, minimum one hour per play session to be productive.

--- edit ---

fwiw, there were some aspects of SR2's chargen I preferred, namely you have the option for two-toned hair and the body types are more varied. iirc SR3 has a more divided male/female dichotomy, and the body types are in the muscular to fat range, whereas you can make skinnier characters in SR2 and I /believe/ gender was a slider separate from body type, so you could make more blatantly intersexed and not just effeminate characters.

Also you don't lose vehicles you store in the garage in SR2/3/4 unless you explicitly tell the game to delete them or sell them to the... guy doing the car collection missions. This is probably the single hugest good feature the series has over GTA. It may not sound like much but holy dang it is.

Anyway, forgot to mention -- played Shining Force 3 and just screwed around Aspia for a bit.

Also, in Suik 3, I... went back to Buduhec and got a different scene telling me to stop Yuber, but... I think I sequence broke something :S

Suik 3 makes me feel happy. I could actually see myself grinding a little just to build up my dudes that I've collected.

Played around with Vanark and Tail of the Sun a bit. Delightful games. TotS makes me miss Weird Artdink -- A-Train 9 was so depressingly stilted/dry/I get that Aquanaut's Holiday doesn't really have any gameplay mechanics to it but if you're making a train simulator you really DO need better gameplay mechanics because that's all you have to go on.

LD: PotB has... some weirdness to it. I'll see how much of that it keeps up.


Saints Row 2 - Did an escort mission. SR2's less /funny/ and more /strange/ compared to SR3. I like that.

Suik 3 - Spent an hour and a half doing nothing productive. Went to VdZ to get a Crystal Ball, leveled up my jongleurs a bit (pry gonna ditch Toppo and just focus on Nei for that), uh... need to get a rune for Wan Fu...

Sort of paralyzed by indecision on my party. There aren't any characters in particular I don't feel like using :S

Anyway I think Lost Odyssey was also on my list for tonight.


Whoops need to backtrack to Budehuc because I've got a strong urge for Chris and Geddoe in my soul.

I had a conversation with a coworker on Friday. Coworkers keep talking to me about college, so I, uh, talk about college.

Graduated in 2010 and left college completely in 2011, and didn't care too much for it when I was in college. This is not a line of conversation I dig.

Anyway, got a durian for the superbowl. Sort of wanna crack it open but I'm not in the mood to wash up tupperwares for the sake of storing it.

Now you can pilot giant mechs in the bathroom.

No that's eminem.

LD:PotB - NPC dialogue is giving me 15 bits for the NPC's name, and 127 bits for the text. So 15 and 127 characters in UTF8, respectively.

Also fiddled about with Afterburner 2 some more. Found out that you only shoot one missile at a time, so you have to mash it a few times to get everything you locked. Some of my issues with this game may have been a pebkac woopz.

3DS is still murder on my tiny effeminate hands though.

note to self, play Trail of the Sun and Nanatsu Kaze tonight. Also possibly sky odyssey

Got LD:PotB to start displaying longer dungeon names. Tried to do that with town names but it crashed for various reasons that I could fix but I'm not gonna mess with it cause the payoff would be super limited.

I need to actually /play/ games tonight.

-- edit --

sr2 - Not really in the mood to enjoy games right now. welp.

I never actually finish games so I try to avoid playing stuff that only opens up after you invest time in it.

I don't think Pinkie Pie would ever envision a party like the one Alabama Thunderpussy throws here.  

This place gets weird when I'm at work.

Speaking of work.

Defacto project leaders keep changing direction on what they want us to do. Yesterday we were gonna write use cases, so I started doing that. This afternoon they're like nope changing direction. Welp.

I need to stop thinking about work, it's just kind of upsetting me.

Also I shotgunned like half a coffee after lunch and got some delightful caffeine shakes. I can't really talk well when I get those.

We have this conversation every time I go to Magnolia Thunderpussy >:C

wrt local music stores though, Used Kids had hardly anything the last time I was there. It was sad.

Also man I was making a vegemite and cheese quesadilla but I like messed up and all the cheese is on the bottom half and all the vegemite is on the top half and how do I fail this badly at microwaving cheese.
