New one: the ice-cream was good. Didn't notice much of the brownies (I only found one chunk near the end of my portion) but salted caramel is the best.

Not so great: I was up late reading and fell asleep with my hair down, thinking "What's the worst that could happen?" I have regrets. My brush has regrets.

It's one of those really long workdays that involves a lot of downtime, and since I need to stay close to my laptop in case of emergency e-mails, I haven't done much (outside of work) other than play Fire Emblem Fates. That alone was not enough to keep the boredom at bay and I started wondering... about Takumi... I mean, it's so long and thick... I couldn't exactly measure his, so I handed him a bathing towel to make it easier to estimate, tried to put mine up (which was difficult! it's too heavy to stay up!) as well and compared. Conclusion: Takumi's hair is only a few inches longer than mine, but I will never able to compete with that volume.

Things I learned today: write game titles in full or things will turn weird. "So you do Odin and I do Sophie?" was just the tip of the iceberg... The conversation ended when some editors started talking about having sex with their cross-dressing selves and making the ultimate babies, and the boss made everyone go back on topic.

RPGfan seems so normal now.

My handicrafts friend's boyfriend has a very similar personality and in the beginning he loved trying to get a rise out of me. I now know how to handle a Niles in real life, but this virtual one is proving to be a problem. (The RL one drew the line at braids and colourful hairties.)

I like most flavors to be honest....

So! Did you feel better after having Ice Cream Tomara? I bet you did, see Ice Cream is good for you!

I haven't had ice cream yet. I'm saving it. It might sound as if I'm lying at this point, but the lid is still sealed.

Besides, ice cream is not going to fix my lack of sleep. I went to sleep at around 22:30, when it was finally dark outside. Woke up around 00:00 because of a loud bang. Got out of bed to investigate, and concluded it must have been some assholes setting off fireworks illegally. Went back to bed and woke up around 2:00 because of a stupid nightmare. Went back to sleep and woke up again less than two hours later because my body hates me. Dawn was quickly approaching, meaning the birds outside were already going nuts, so I had to close my window to be able to go back to sleep. Then I woke up again at dawn anyway. Fun...

The technicaly differences between the three main consoles of that generation actually weren't that big. If anything, Sony's trump card was the PS2's ability to play DVDs back when DVD players were stupidly expensive. Sure, they were also boasting about the Emtion Engine, but that thing was a pain in the ass for developers. It took them years how to figure out how to put the PS2 hardware to good use and a lot of early titles look like shit. The PS2s real power was in its software library, which was made possible by connections build in the 32/64-bit era.

Some of the PS2's success isn't even a result of things Sony did. Both Nintendo and Microsoft made several slip-ups. Nintendo was still struggling with the N64 3rd party developer exodus, and maybe those mini-discs weren't the best choice. Meanwhile, Microsoft was mostly experimenting with a variety of things, like a controller that was too big for human hands.

What also may have been a factor, is that the PS2 was relatively easier to mod to play pirated games.

-SNES all the way. Simple, easy to use layout, the perfect size (for my tiny hands) and it has buttons in fun colours. Controllers need fun colours.

-I doubt I'll ever be a fan of the system itself, but the Xbox 360 controller is great. It's like it took what made the SNES controller good and updated it to modern standards.

-The Wii Classic controller deserves a mention. It's nothing advanced, but for a cheap, no-nonsense controller it's very good. And it's not that I dislike the GameCube controller (far from it), but playing retro games with it never felt natural. Plus, the Classic is pretty stylish with it's clean design and transparant buttons.

Nah, I see some truth in there. Sorbet is more refreshing and a better treat in hot weather, while ice cream makes a better dessert year round.

Unsurprisingly, my most recent impuls buy was ice cream... It's not exactly the one Agent D. showed, but it does have the same core ingredients and pecan. I love pecan! I'm not going to open it until monday, though. That evening, the magazine will be safely at the printer's and that fancy ice cream will be my reward.

Edit: yay, I'm still alive! My Fire Emblem Fates review went up and I had some choice words for the dumb parts (and I gave the whole thing a 8/10, which is low compared to most scores on metacritic). Considering readers on this site have raised huge stinks over less, I was fearing the worst, but there are only compliments and innocent questions (such as: what type of 3DS did you play the game on?) in the comments.

I'm not going to reward myself with ice cream, though. The ice cream is for later.

Edit 2: OMG. I just realised I made the best pun in the title of that review: Driemaal is scheepsrecht. It means the same as 'third time's the charm', which is a reference to Revelation. The 'scheep' in 'scheepsrechts' presumably comes from 'ships'. Ships.

Still not going to have any ice cream, though.

It's a maxed Valla fort, but the best part (according to me) is that it's a good challenge. I can't beat it and I have some of the best units on the server.

Unless its a Revelations Maid Cafe, an Unarmed General Punching Simulator or a Skill/Gold Farm, chances are that people won't be that interested in your My Castle past the first couple of days.

Probably, but I won't have any real competition for weeks, so...

... Just let me enjoy my awesome fort while I still can, okay? :(

I went a little overboard with my castle in Fire Emblem Fates. I think, no, I know, I have the best one in my region now. Which doesn't mean much, since this region doesn't officially exist yet. I wonder if my castle will become popular when regular players can actually visit it. I've seen the rewards go all the way up to 9999 points, how many points will I gather before I get bored?
42  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: PS4 or Vita? on: May 12, 2016, 02:20:56 AM
All of this is irrelevant, buy a Vita

What's the franchise/game that you can't live without that's on or going to be on Vita?

Publishers of Japanese games are more often than not still testing the waters. The quality of ports generally ranges from 'yeah, this sort of works...' to '[endless angry Total Biscuit rant]' (and perhaps some metabombing). I bet it will be a while before you get the same experience on both PC and PS system.

Personally, I'm pretty content with a combination of consoles and the delightful insult to PC gaming that is my laptop (it has an Intel Graphics HD 3000!). I can play simple indie games and most new adventure games, and that's all I need. I might take PC gaming a little more seriously next time I need to upgrade, but for now, I'm good.

I heard laptops aren't that great for gaming though...

Depends on what you plan on doing with them. I need a laptop anyway, so I got one that covered my (laughable) gaming needs. However, if you don't need something portable, a desktop is a better choice. It's more cost efficient (especially if you build it yourself) and much easier to upgrade.

If we're gonna talk desserts and brownies and ice cream and such, then everyone needs NEEDS to try this.

A 4K monitor?

'Ben & SaCarCo Sweet Cre with Blo & a Salted' sounds delicious.

You've obsviously never enjoyed a Speedy (and you never will, because the dipshits over at Nestle no longer have the original recipe) or you'd know better than to disrespect raspberry and orange :(
45  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 11, 2016, 09:23:26 AM
That's just mean! I try to not think about comfort food when I feel down, because emotional eating is a bad habit (that I don't have but would not want to develop) :(

That said, Ben & Jerry's ice cream is on sale this week and I might get some

It's one of my favourites.

O, but I don't always want something fancy. Most of the time I'm perfectly happy with one of these:

Raspberry, orange and pineapple are the best flavours for popsicles and a raketijsje has all three!
