Oh hey e-mail from UPS!

"final delivery is being provided by the U.S. Postal Service."

welp, more stuff i'm never getting.

I would actually feel happy if I got an email like that...

The USPS has never failed to deliver a package for me.  UPS on the other hand...it feels like a miracle when they actually get something right.

I would simply never use UPS if it were up to me, but unfortunately many online retailers these days do not actually give you a choice (or even tell you ahead of time who they're shipping with...).

Or like living in a basic Japanese studio apartment. This is a possible layout for a container flat:



Something like this usually costs something like 350-400 a month (including utilities).


I don't think that reallt qualifies as a "tiny bouse" to be honest.  It actually looks pretty reasonable for a studio.  I've seen normal apartments smaller than that.

Just cheap housing using recycled materials.  Nohing wrong with that.

For anyone that cares after Halo and Destiny.

I really don't understand what Halo and Destiny have to do with anything...

Personally, I'm in the camp that thinks SS2 was a bit overrated.  Sure it was really atmospheric (at least as atmospheric as you could be when it was impossible to even tell what you were fighting half the time because the 3D models were so bad), but it has some serious issues with the mechanics and balance.  Good concept but plenty of room for improvement.

Can we talk about the recent "tiny house" trend? Like, seriously what the actual fuck is wrong with people!?
"46 inches floor to ceiling"
"OMG I love it!"
No. No you don't. You're just a trend-following hipster that has no capability of thinking for yourself so when someone tells you something is popular you must have it. I'm usually someone with the attitude "whatever floats your boat," but when you're sacrificing your health to be trendy, you're a fucking moron. And some of these idiots have children who are going to suffer with them. Makes my blood boil.

I did not even know what this was so I looked it up. I saw a few that looked pretty cool, but would I ever want to live there? No. Definitely not. I need enough space in my house so I can at least breathe.

I never heard of these either.  Is this really a trend?

That's not Hatsune Miku!  You can't fool me.

In all seriousness, I pretty much agree with eveything Jim said...except for the part where he said he was Hatsune Miku.

I ski.  Well, I did ski...last year I couldn't actually go skiing even once because there was no snow anywhere around here, even in the mountains.

Fuck global warming...

I just won a chili cook-off.

Today was a good day.

Is that guy in the trailer supposed to be the same boy from the first game?  If so, he certainly grew up...

Dec 22nd seems like an incredibly weird time to launch this game.

Most people will be done their christmas shopping by then.

Why would they put it out so late?

Probably because that's the fastest they could get it ready...

You know.... I spent the entirety of my formative teenage years being rejected by women.  And now, as an adult male who has had plenty of experience dating since college.... I still freaking love women.  Not just their bodies or faces, pretty much everything about them: their clothes/fashion, voices, wide variety of hairstyles, and especially their (usually) gentler nature and general openness to talking about emotions and intellectual musings.  I enjoy nerding out with both men and women about games/movies/sports, of course.  But in general, I find spending time with women much more interesting and satisfying.

I've never understood how misogyny is even... a thing.

I don't discriminate, I'm a misanthrope!  I hate everyone equally.

I have been told by people who played the game (I have not so this is second-hand) that it follows a very similar structure.  Extremely slow at first, but it picks up a lot in the second half.  So here's hoping...

I feel like all the games mentioned here are either part of series I just have no interest in or I already played...on PS3.  I have zero interest in buying a new system to re-buy and replay games I already own and have already played, I don't care how 'remastered' they are.

Multiplats are nothing new, of course, but I can't think of any other system that had such a large portion of its library available on the previous generation...

It's funny that you should mention the Vita since I do have one and actually rather like it.  In fact I would go so far as ot argue that at this point in its life the Vita actually had a lot more exclusives than the PS4 does, yet it constantly got shat on for having 'no games' while everyone makes excuses for the PS4.  It's all a matter of perception, I guess.

Of course there are some upcoming games for the PS4 that I'm interested in, otherwise I would ignore the system entirely.  But considering that some of those very titles were originally supposed to be PS3 games if not for a constant barrage of delays (*cough*Last Guadrian*cough*FFXV*cough*) I think that says something about the folly of buying a system for games that aren't out yet.  In terms of what is available now...it just doesn't seem compelling.

I keep thinking about getting a PS4 then realizing that there's still nothing for it that I really want to play yet.  Somebody sell me on this thing...

Also more apropos to earlier posts, why DO people get nostalgic for childhood? Childhood's awful -- you have no autonomy and you're basically a human pet.
Yeah but you're safe and have all your necessities cared for so you can truly absorb and enjoy the things you love, be they games/movies/books/shows/whatever.  Adults have too many distractions and too little time.

This. Being a husband; father; and full-time worker, I have daily responsibilities out the wazzoo. Childhood was awesome in that regard. Didn't have to worry about any of the shit I do now. Had all the time in the world for myself. Don't get me wrong: I truly love my life the way it is now. It's just that sometimes, the worries can pile up, and alone time can be rare.
Also, in regards to being a "human pet": I believe that has everything to do with how effective the respective child's parents are/were at supporting the child's individual dreams/hobbies, and providing them with a sense of self (importance) early on. ...Just my take.

Hey, I'm an adult and I don't have any responsibilities!  I think having kids was your problem ;)

I just bought a plane ticket to go to Japan for winter Comiket and New Year's...and that's about it.  It's not a particularly long trip becuase it's back to work after that.

I feel so extravagant.
