I'd be worried I'd get drunk and microwave her or something.

Watching this and I'm thinking, Minecraft was probably indie game's greatest success stories and at the same time it's come pretty damn close to killing it.

Here's what I'm thinking about the economic reality of early access.
You make a game and it get 50000 sales.
You partially make a game, release that with the promise to continue developing it, and the early access version gets 50000 sales, with the same unit cost,  but that's it.
same amount of money but if you finish the game first, you can look at that as money made, whereas in the latter case it's like, development funds.

It's a model that worked very well for minecraft because minecraft made a ridiculous amount of money and, early on at least, would've had EXTREMELY low development costs.

Also feel like Minecraft getting successful coincided with a lot of drama cropping up in the indie scene cause I guess getting big begets that.

But yeah, this is why I didn't get Broken Age.

Yeah but if I accept people who are different from me, then I lose the impetus to turn them into genetic clones of myself, and then how will I be able to harvest their stem cells?

I mean I'm not saying I'm some sort of alien usurper trying to create pod people or something. That's not what I mean.

Yeah my point was just that if you're unhappy about being fat you shouldn't feel like you NEED to accept yourself for who you are if it's something you can change :TTT

I mean I don't like fat people but that's just the general misanthropy speaking there -- my issue isn't the /fat/ part so much as it is the /people/ part.

I drink regular soda because aspartame tastes godawful. I do get headaches after drinking diet soda sometimes but I think that's just... in response to how it tastes.

Granted I rarely drink normal soda -- I usually go for like organic microbrewed stuff/imported things.

I also have a normal body weight and am a chronic pedestrian. Speaking of which!

Apartment was still cold this morning (they're turning the heat on today) and it was inexplicably warmer feeling outside and by inexplicably I mean completely explicably cause there be humidity and sunlight and all that jazz out there, so I left at like 9-ish to go out to Grandview Heights and get french toast from Spagio. I was going to go to the Short North but everything's closed on Monday there.

Anyway, get to Spagio (after doin' a run through at Target) and discover that it is in fact closed on Monday. Dangs. Grab a scone from panera and then go over to a fast food Korean restaurant (it's like Chipotle but with stuff that goes in bibimbap. But you can also get cheese. Cheese does not go on bibimbap so wtf?) and get a bibimbap. Starts raining after I leave. Also my feet are somehow really dead at this point -- I'd MAYBE walked like four or five miles /tops/, so IDK I think my insoles are dead. Not muscle pain just a lot of blisters.

Was thinking about going home but I'm still sort of hungry so I walked down King to the, uh, same restaurant I was at last weekend and got some vegan poutine (smoked mushroom gravy, ground tofu instead of cottage cheese, and pickles on sweet potato fries. So cash). Then I went to the Short North anyway cause I remembered there was a CD I wanted from Magnolia Thunderpussy, and they're actually open on Mondays.

Raining pretty heavily by that point, so after I get CD, I walk down to the convention center and get a pumpkin spice latte and, uh, Metal Gear Solid collection for the 360, because I want HD Raiden's delectable manrump to support my local game stores. Hung around the skywalk. I WAS thinking about going to the art museum but I was really tired so I just caught a bus home.

On the way back, I saw that a car had rear-ended another bus on the OSU campus. Swear the college students around here are getting dumber every year.

Probably gonna do the art museum and botanical gardens on Thursday.

Also I somehow got sunburn even though it's been hugely overcast all day and it's October.

Oh and there's a bar in the Short North that apparently has Rainbow Dash themed martinis. WTF?

@ glassjawsh: Just stop doing sidequests and progress the story. There's only a small number of them with a time limit, and you don't reach those for awhile (and the ones with time limits actually develop characters. They're also clearly marked as having a time limit). It's entirely possible to spend ten hours on the game without actually starting the story /at all/, but that doesn't necessarily mean you should.

That's not even hyperbole. You seriously get 20 minutes of story before the game lets you just fuck around for a /long/ time.

When shit happens, you'll notice. Fiora leaves the party temporarily to take care of her injured brother, and the story really kicks off when it's just Reyn and Shulk. So if Fiora's still in your party you're not there yet.

Anyway.

Suikoden 3 - You know my head's saying the bit where everyone unites at Budehuc Castle is kind of dorky, but like, screw it I love it and it's making me ridiculously happy.

Fireem Blehm: al-Wakeeng: Did some early mission in this (basically I've been in bed a lot cause herpderp freezing herp derp no heat herp derp need a 3DS game that doesn't require manual dexterity till my gripper thingy gets here) and then started Paralogue 1.

Shmups - Hit a plateau in Espgaluda 2. Think I might go back to Mushihimesama Futari. Was gonna save that for later, but... guess I could go back to Daifukkatsu maybe?

First real day of vacation is tomorrow.

I'm already bored and feeling paranoid.

Man I honestly think VP kind of blows on anything less than Hard mode. Hard mode like has you actually using the mechanics and doing all this cool timing stuff and it's amazing.

Normal/easy mode is just like pass out on the controller and win instantly.

This is why I didn't actually like VP until I was in college -- I was in 7th grade when it came out and just tended to put everything on easy cause I was bad at the vidya

The basics of the True A requirement's to when the game tells you do, you instead dother.

FUCK YEAH FFIX

Okay, the point about not making fun of people is a good one, because you shouldn't make fun of people, I've never really been a fan of liking yourself for who you are, no matter what.

I get that you shouldn't feel bad about things about yourself that you can't change, but...

- Obesity is a major problem and if it's just the result of a lifestyle choice, then no, I don't think it's something we should accept.

- What if someone's overweight but not to the point where it's unhealthy? Then it's up to them.

Here's the thing with that. If you're overweight but still healthy, and you don't really want to be thinner, that's totally fine. But what if you aren't happy with how you look? I don't think there's anything with wrong with wanting to change that either.

I guess what I'm saying is that if there's something you don't like about yourself and you can safely change it, why accept it? There's a fine line between acceptance and resignation in this case, and resignation's a terrible thing.

--- edit ---

6AM. Too much coffee to sleep.

Also it's 5AM.

... Wasn't it daylight savings?

Anyway just sitting in bed 'cause it's too cold to be anywhere else (TURN THE HEAT ON MGMT FFFFF) and not playing games cause my laptop will overheat.

At one point I made a blanket fort and used my laptop to heat it.

Suikoden 3 - In Chapter 4, picked Hugo as The Big Guy. I keep wanting Hugo and Sgt. Joe to make out even though I realize that would look ridiculous.

Also oh god end of Brass Castle battle ahhhhhhhhhhh :DDDDDDD

Espgaluda 2 - Getting sort of better at dodging through the late-stage stuff in level 2. Managed to get a new high score last night, albeit still a very poor one.

Also I feel like playing Shadow Hearts: Covenant. I got it for my birthday ten years ago and then never played it because SMT: Nocturne came out like a week later and I played nothing else but SMT:N for months.


---

Eschatos - My hands are basically freezing because my apartment doesn't turn the heat on for a few more days and it's unseasonably cold for early October, so I'm having a hard time doing anything shmuppy. That being said, I really need to figure out the scoring mechanics in Advanced Mode.

Also I thiiiink the missiles in the first couple sequences aren't totally random and are sort of aimed, so if you move around more it's hard to get them all?

Saints Row 2 - Did the first Samedi mission. Man I love the city in this -- it's a lot more detailed than the GTA games, especially wrt the interiors.

re: Suikoden 3 - So the thing with Geddoe and Sana was a translation error although the text it should have been is still kind of weird without context. Anyway the page I found talking about the translation errors though was kind of obnoxious because it spent way too much time complaining about how like, The Flame Champion and Fire Bringer didn't match what was in Suikoden 2's translation. But screw that, Suik 2's translation was jacked up.

It's been hail storming for the last like hour so I can't go get vegan poptarts or McPies.

I need a grownup :(

Also it's cold and they don't turn the heat on in my apartment for like another week.

Oh welpers at least I figured out which song that /goddamn horn riff/ I've had stuck in my head for the past two days was. Now I can get on with my life.
75  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: October 03, 2014, 11:53:02 PM
Honest question: Does ANYONE ever bother cooking poptarts?

I want vegan poptarts.

It's raining outside so I can't go get vegan poptarts.

Help.
