Speaking of 50 Shades of Grey, what if somebody does something similar with like Fallout: Equestria? Change the names to avoid copyright issues and like, things happen?

Anyway I got a Toblerone from Staples. I remember when I was in kindergarten they used to sell these in the snack box in the teachers lounge at school where I went to school/my mom worked, but I thought they were kind of a /forbidden fruit/. WELL FUCK YOU, 90S SIX YEAR OLD ME, I'M AN ADULT NOW.

My problem with VC is that the map design and mechanics are built around taking a methodical approach and using cover and stuff, but then the ranking mechanics expect you to do every map in like two turns.

... fwiw, "more methodical than strategic per se" kind of applies to the Shining Force games too, so I'm really not sure why I like those so much cause I do kind of find methodically-over-all-else draining -- as I've mentioned elsewhere, that's what kills a lot of oldschool dungeon crawlers for me.

I am not sure how to deal with a 12 year old when he is moody.

Race and even species wouldn't stop her from getting laid.  Think about how many rural guys have experimented with animals.  I mean, there's even a law on the books in West Virginia forbidding guys to copulate with animals below a certain size/weight.  And history has shown us that even if a people is considered inferior or the "them" in the "us and/vs. them" that doesn't stop the "us" men from copulating with the "them" women for whatever reason. 

And for all we know, Raine was probably getting it with Kratos.  Or someone else in power so she and Genis would be "pure elven" on the books and wouldn't be outed as halfbreeds for the labor camp. 

VIDEOGAMES ARE WEIRD.

Sansa Clip+ came and I successfully flashed it with Rockbox. Kinda maybe a little wish I went for the Clip Zip so I could play Doom on it properly, but meh.

Reading up on what kind of 64gb SD cards it takes. Apparently it likes slower ones.

--- edit ---

blew through like four gigs of this thing already.

also where is my copy of Entroducing. I want that on there.

also fwiw

Lettuce is food though.

Paper guy also likes destroying paperclips by unfolding them which annoys me because A) I use those and B) He'll start gesticulating while holding the unfolded paperclip which is basically a long, sharp metal stick at that point.

1. One of my coworkers eats paper.

2. ONE OF MY COWORKERS EATS PAPER I MEAN LOOK I'M TRYING TO NOT BE JUDGMENTAL ABOUT MY COWORKERS BUT HOLY CHRIST DUDE YOU EAT PAPER.

3. I don't really feel *tired* from the lack of sleep I've been getting. Five and a half hours total, per night, out of which maybe three or four hours is actually quality sleep, because re: bizarre dreams and hypnagogic... stuff. Kind of crash in the evenings, unless I can find a project to work on, but I wake up feeling relatively restful and I'm not even really going to sleep on the bus 'cause I'm just not quite tired enough for it. Caffeine intake's only slightly higher than usual, so idk.

4. I got bored and have, for the past two days, been bombarding myself with [redacted] from Google Image Search, because doing so gives me panic attacks and... I don't know WHY I'm doing this but it feels like I'm supposed to. And maybe I got this notion that I /know/ what I could do to be more comfortable with myself as a person, but that's not a side of myself I want to embrace.


5. Do you have any idea how awkward it is to talk to someone while they're tearing off pieces of paper and eating it?

6. Also he was like, doing this to one of the requirements lists we got from the client.

So who the hell has that half-elven tramp been banging?   

...

So given the /social status/ of half-elves in that game and their exile and whatnot, is it entirely unlikely that Raine had to sell herself to provide for her younger brother at some point?

I mean I really don't want to read that far into it but IT'S KIND OF PLAUSIBLE.

@Tomara:

fwiw, people that gush about certain games in a niche genre, like roguelikes, from what I've seen, tend not to have that much experience with the genre. People that are REALLY into the subgenre tend to be more critical.

Roguelikes are random, but excessive RNG screw is /not/ considered good design. Good design is generally regarded, in the roguelike world, is having the game balanced in such a way that you can get past whatever the RNG throws at you if you know what you're doing/have planned for it.

Permadeath's another thing that can make roguelikes un-fun, in cases where the game is too linear or or awkwardly paced or doesn't have enough variety to make restarting not feel like a chore. Again though I see a lot of people pulling the "You're just not HARDCORE enough to 'get' permadeath in roguelikes' card a lot.

Anyway, file a complaint against the excessive cigarette smoke in my apartment. Normally I'd just tough it out but when I woke up this morning my apartment smelled like a bar, so yeah. It's one thing if it just hangs around my door but when it permeates to my bedroom, /fuck/ no,

I LIKE TRISCUITS OKAY.
I should probably sleep instead of eating triscuits.

I never really had to grind much in Persona until I got into the Good Ending path, and that's mostly because I... kept getting Nate? killed and was neglecting doing fusions properly.

Then again I played the original US release where the exp gain was like doubled.

Zobaznia - Beat the Key Dungeon. Haven't seen any heartquarters I can get out without the hook dealy yet.

This kind of gets at my issue with standard Zeldatroidvania ability progression -- the downside of the /law of miyamoto/ is that being able to go off and explore on your own isn't very interesting when you just encounter obstructions whose only solution is to, ultimately, progress the narrative.

It's not a case of seeing a challenge and having to figure out HOW to get past it so much as it is a case of seeing a challenge and just having to remember that it was there for some future point where the game let's you get past whatever binary lock is keeping you from it.

Now, I don't think this is entirely the case with LA -- I'm under the impression there's nothing stopping me from just doing a dungeon up to the point where I get the key item, leaving, and progressing through the game that way. Although I'm not sure why I'd want to do this since I'd mostly just be, uh, missing out on getting heart containers, and the boss difficulty scales linearly enough, so...

Ordered an 8 gig Sansa Clip+ as a present for the missus and by the missus I mean myself and by myself I mean <clip from SimCity 2000 midi music>.

Anyway though, here's the fun part. I went over to my box of CDs to find some stuff to uh, rip for said MP3 player, and realized that I doooon't think I've even looked at my box of CDs throughout all of 2014.

Did I seriously sleep through 2014 or something?

Additional observations:

1. We have a ton of snow. Walking through deep snow kills your legs. Holy dang ow. Note to self don't do this again.

2.

Anyone ever play those old NES DBZ RPGs? Those were weirb,

They're also partially why I have a degree in Russian and when I say partially I mean that's 100% a lifetime of poor decision making but playing Japanese DBZ NES RPGs when I was 10/11ish are what /caused/ that lifetime of poor decision making.
73  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Zelda Topic (Latest: Majora's Mask 3DS released!) on: February 22, 2015, 12:50:46 AM
btw what are the New 3DS exclusive features? I've tried googling it and I don't get productive results.

Leldakening - Got the moon violin or whatever.

Not a comment directed at this game in particular, but I don't think I'm really that into the typical ability/item progression you see in Zeldatroidvanias. So I think the way that I prefer Rondo to SotN has something similar in it to how I like ALBW, for bypassing the typical Zelda item progression entirely, or why later 3D zeldas turning abilities into stuff that's basically a dungeon feature never bugged me, or why the *lack* of acquirable abilities was a selling point for Toki Tori 2 for me.

From the let's plays of it, Goat Simulator looks like a zany, brief, collection-based platformer, and it's not really immediately apparent if people recommending it are doing so because they like weird, albeit flawed, things, or recommending it completely ironically.

Similarly, from the synopsis, Fifty Shades of Grey sounds like you're going to get a LOT of tits, and it's hard to tell whether people it are watching it ironically or because they're fully aware of its flaws and are just, uh, boobs.

also there's a gulf between watching campy b-movies like Snakes on a Plane for the so-stupid-its-amazing factor and, uh, liking something like Food Fight ironically. Or Bone Alone.

Man I'm wont to say that Bone Alone was worse than Food Fight. It wasn't nearly as offensive or gross but christ, Food Fight DID have a tighter narrative structure.

... Actually I can think of another movie which I consider worse than both but I saw it on HBO and I think it was a softcore porn film so I'm sort of hesitant about considering it as a real movie but 50 Shades is also softcore porn for allen tents and porpoises so

Anyway the synopsis of that thing was that there was a black guy and he had to get a bunch of people pregnant. It starts with a German psychologist killing himself by jumping out of a window. At one point there's like, eggs getting fertilized by sperms and the eggs get the ladies faces superimposed over them when they're fertilized and they start smiling. This is the point where I shut it off and cried.

Also the framerate was weird and the colors had this weird Fallout 3ish thing going on so uh the entire movie was like you're on drugs, but with more afro-fetishism and creepy anthropomorphized ova.
