Sleep deprived and moderately delusional/disoriented. I went to Cincinnati on Saturday, did that stuff with just wandering around aimlessly on Sunday, uh, today's Monday and usually I'm at work but 'wasn't 'cause holiday, uh, went out to lunch earlier.

If I leave my apartment now, it's about four hours till sunrise. I could probably cover about 11 miles on foot.


Woke up at 9:30 this morning but I didn't feel like getting breakfast so I went back to sleep till 10. Got up, screwed around, and made oatmeal at like 10:40. Since it was steal cut oats I was using, you have to let that brew for awhile, so I just added the hot water and set it in my microwave to kind of chill out for a bit. Figured that while the oatmeal was soaking, I'd go out to the McDonald's next to my apartment and get a coffee, and then head back home, because it was raining and I didn't feel like going on a long walk.

After getting the coffee, however, I got terribly distracted, walked out to Whole Foods (which is like miles away), got lunch, went to the french bakery next to Whole Foods, fucked around in Upper Arlington and somehow ended up at the Giant Eagle Market District in Upper Arlington, got a root beer, and walked back home.

That oatmeal was hydrated as fuck by the time I got back.

Seriously though I have issues with time. Like I had this conversation in 2010 that got picked back up again in 2012 without beats being missed. Also the flashbacks.


1. Also they should make commercially prepared sliced bread that has crust on all sides of each slice. Or some kind of inverted bread where you jam an electronic rod in the middle of a dough ball that doesn't have a pot surrounding it, and electrocute it so you only get crust through the center and the rest of it is just this tortured fractal gluten mycelium going off wherever.

2. Cereal companies start releasing breakfast and dinner versions of their cereals. For instance, Raisin Bran becomes Kellog's Morning Flakes and Kellog's Evening Flakes. They are identical but people are self conscious about eating breakfast cereal for dinner, so they'll buy the Evening Flakes for that purpose. This will sell twice the cereal.

3. Everything costs 20 dollars, no matter what it's worth. This starts to average out although you end up with stuff like Ford making candy bars to compensate for the cheap cars. They still catch on fire for no reason.

4. When you're eating honey you're literally getting snowballed by a bee and a flower.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz3Mi_OZYno And because I secretly hate all of you, here's a this. Warning: I think it's SFW but I couldn't sit through more than like an eighth of it so no guarantees that it doesn't turn into something really horrible at some point.

Also are 3DS eShop games still system locked?

This is what I'm seeing.

Okay after putting your thing down, flipping it, and reversing it, I see what it's supposed to be.
51  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: August 31, 2014, 04:01:56 PM
I also feel like idk making an HD remaster + expansion to the original Xenoblade as a Wii U exclusive would've made a lot more sense.

Unrelated but Ranadiel wtf is your avatar it looks like the eraserhead baby

Customer: Okay, i'll take a New 3DS in (insert decision on colour choice here).
Employee: Great. So did you want that New 3DS Pre-owned? Or just new?
Customer: New, please.
Employee: Okay, and would you like to sign up for our Power Up Rewards program?
Customer: No, thank you.

^- fixed that for ya

wrt new features, I have some concerns that the nub and extra shoulder buttons are going to be too crowded on there to feel comfortable. Also the face tracking for improved 3D is a good idea, buuuuuuuut the crux of that is, of all the 3DS games I've played, I only felt like ALbW and the Sega 3D Classics games actually used it in a way that looked nice.

Also this is edging uncomfortably close to what Sega was doing with the 32x and SegaCD.

Actually I'm more worried that incremental yearly updates to console hardware will become a thing.

If you want 108 stars your practically required to read a guide. So many are only available for a short window of time, and their prerequisites can get pretty redonkulous. (FILTHY GODWIN DEVILS!!!)

Isn't that every Suikoden though?

I think the only permanently missable character in 3 was one of the dogs.

I think it was mostly the voices in S5 that were throwing me off. Whatever I just bought the fucker because I think I got food poisoning from a burrito about half an hour ago and I'm not thinking that clearly.

Deathsmiles - Tried Level 999 on the swamp. D8 D8 D8

Crimzon Clover - I dropped out of high res and uh... apparently the game does not, in fact, have any slowdown. Not even courtesy slowdown. Yeeeeah.


Aeoulouse - I was under the impression you could freely miss all 180 of the Stars of Destiny in Suikoden 4 ;;;;;;;;;;)

As for the Xenoblade port, my thoughts are that the plus side is that this should make doing all those hundreds upon hundreds of quests and Gem Crafting sessions much more palatable, but on the negative side is that I just don't think the 3DS screen can really do those large gorgeous vistas justice compared to your big screen TV.

I saw a video. It... looks bad.

I'm hoping this is just an early version where all the existing resources were just downscaled to save time and they're going to redraw stuff later, but, uh...

XBC's crashed down to the 50 dollar range again, and used Wii's run about the same price now, which'll probably total less than the New 3DS, sooooooooooooooooooooooo...

Also I hope they don't start introducing SNES/N64 VC games for the New 3DS as exclusives. That'd be sort of bullshit a lot.

The problem with police in Ohio is that they don't give a shit about collateral damage. It's not a case of them getting jumpy and shooting unarmed people because they THOUGHT they had a gun -- it's a case of them shooting at people who actually ARE armed but completely ignoring innocent bystanders in the process.

Honestly if someone was trying to rob me I'd rather just give them whatever and forget about it than get the cops involved.

At which point I remember there was a fatal shooting in my neighborhood back in January and I do NOT even live in a remotely bad part of town -- and this was after a week after I actually was coerced into giving some dude 50 bucks for alcohol, and then called the police after the fact (at which point they didn't give a shit and as I mentioned elsewhere, I think the guy's now wanted for robbing a 71-year old HRR DRRR WHY THE FUCK AM I STILL LIVING HERE.)

Anyway, XBC's a nice killer app for the New 3DS but I wonder if the adoption rate's going to be that hot on the thing.

Screwed around with a hooker's friend's copy of Suikoden 5. It... feels very anime and very Suikoden 1.

I think the reasons I liked Suikoden 3 so much were the reasons the Suikoden fans did not :T

What if it's like

But with zombies.

Like, Bob's fighting Botnets and shit like that.

I broke... 2 mill or 200k in Deathsmiles, sticking to rank 2, and immediately got pulverized in THE GORGE. Apparently the gorge was a bad idea.

The pickups are immensely distracting -- but I think that's the point. Survival's a lot easier if you don't focus on them -- but i still managed to do well enough by picking up what flew at me.

Went on /team lunch/ with my coworkers. Had this conversation with one of them in the car:

<Coworker> So what are your plans for marriage? <Me> No? <Coworker> Any future plans? <Me> No..? <Coworker> Any distant future plans? <Me> No. <Coworker> Do you live with your parents?

Besides that, not a word of English was spoken the entire time.

--- edit ---

http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2014/08/27/columbus-north-high-street-robbery.html <- Also I think this might be the guy that coerced me into buying him 50 dollars worth of booze around New Years. And this is the exact same area where he went after me, so.

I'd totally tell the police department except A) I'm not totally confident because there ARE a lot of homeless black dudes with missing teeth around here. and B) The only thing I know about him is some probably bullshitted story about him being a veteran.
