I think I dropped like a grand on a 360 + monitor + games + hotel fees in July (although in my defense that was definitely within the realm of affordability).

@ Mesh... I don't know if you are at/near/past the start of Disc 4 yet but for the love of god, take the time to search and revisit lots o places if you are not/haven't already.

I haven't actually played any games in like, two weeks now?

... I think I might grab Re:Volver and Jade Penetrate Black Package from steam to try and shock myself out of my non-interest in gaming. I find that gaming actually DOES improve my mental state, so'p.

-- edit --

Played Valkyria briefly. I feel like the game actively encourages save/reload tactics until you stumble on to whatever optimal route through a mission is going to get you the A rank. Trying to play intelligently by making use of cover and sending proper backup along is too slow to get A ranks.

I too got thrown out of a computer lab today because I called someone a cunt.

Although in my case, this was at our local branch of the Marie Trurbton School for Giant Disembodied Vaginas, and I guess the /c-word/ only counts as a term of endearment 'round those parts if you, yourself, are a giant disembodied vagina.

Otherwise it's a racial slur.

Probably that one time my dad actually let me play Tecmo Bowl with him.

... Actually I'm not sure that ever happened.

I'll just drop this here:

white people in Vancouver riot over a hockey game and cause $5 million worth of damage to their own city: "well that's just sports fans being sports fans"

black people riot in Ferguson over the result of a grand jury investigation in to the murder of a youth: "It's the fall of civilization as we know it!"

And if black people in Vancouver riot over a hockey game: "Where the hell did all these black people come from?"

... Did anyone else read harry potter when they were twelve and get to "neville longbottoms" and somehow parse that as having like, three feet long butt.

You can hear her dying as she makes that.


When y'all are at New Years Eve parties this year, remember that.

I don't like it when waiters/waitresses make flirty comments at me at restaurants :(

Or when people acknowledge that I exist in general, really.


On that, though -- I'm not really close to my coworkers, but... there are a few still on the team that have been there the entire time I've been on the team. Or for the past two years or so, at least.

I'm on a new project starting early next year, and aside from the off chance of a few of them being brought on to the new project, there's pretty much a zero percent chance of me ever seeing/talking to/interacting with them in any capacity again.

I'm not close to them so I don't know why I feel so melancholic about this.


Additional fun thoughts!
Cowboy Bebop aired on Adult Swim for the first time in 2001.
Quite a few people were probably inspired to get pet corgis because of Ein.
Corgis live for about 13 years on average.
Merry Christmas!


Remember when y'all parents tried to feed you green peppers and you didn't like them and they was all "YA GON LIKE EM WHEN YA GET OLDER"

but then you be an adult and find out that you didn't like green peppers cause they seriously just red peppers that were unripe as hell???

To be fair, I think Selphie and Irving actually did SOMETHING after disc 1.

... Now I wonder if everyone was supposed to die at the missile base in some earlier version of the script because that's pretty much the exact point where Quistis especially ceases to exist as a character.

I used to use kefir instead of sour cream on stuff. Generally lower fat and a better nutrient pile. Also since it was more liquidy it was less pron to clumping and not getting evenly dispersed.

... I wonder if I can get seasonal Kefir flavors still. Hrm.

I also wonder if people would've found the orphanage scene in FFVIII less distasteful if the game had been up-front about the memory loss stuff -- like instead of having it come out of nowhere, if the game outright mentioned that the main characters had memory loss issues but were vaguely aware that they knew eachother somehow, and used the orphanage bit as a cathartic flash of remembrance instead of as a basically irrelevant plot twist.

I always felt that's what they were actually going for there in any case.

Honestly, I feel like if I get ten solid hours out of a game I got my moneys worth. ... As I said, I'm bad at finishing games, though.

@ Klyde, I want to mention this as like a... sort-of complaint against LO but it's not really a complaint because I dig it but it's sort of wonky.

I noticed a few points where the game has some pronounced leaps of logic. Which admittedly aren't worse than any other JRPG but like... That scene in Numara on Disc 1 where Kaim and Seth are like 'Gongara stole our memories CLEARLY HE WANTS TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD' seemed kind of abrupt to me.

Exceeeeeeeeeeeept I'm wondering if that's actually intentional. The abruptness and leaps. Because there's a huge theme of /dreams/ in the game and those kind of free associative jumps are typical of dream logic. The way cutscenes are framed, the way the story sometimes bounces around between different places, etc. It all feels really dream-like. It's surreal in a way I've not been able to pin down beyond that.

idk i haven't gamed prpoerly in day.s

Got like six pounds of jackfruit. idk how to open this but SCIENCE.

Also think I might try playing an /untranslated videogame/ with all the weird Mongolian hieroglyphs and everything! And possibly blog about it on the other board. SCIENCE!

--- edit ---

Okay, finished cutting up the jackfruit. ONLY TOOK ME LIKE AN HOUR.
