This is seriously a cool tool you've created here.

I honestly wish more folk became ambitious and created some encyclopedic hub for all games/genres that worked just like this. Awesome efforts buddy!

I'm feeling more lucid than I've in long damn time right now, so here's fiteen years of repressed emotional bloodletting!

I feel a lot of derealization and self-dislike over being circumcised; I project the dislike I feel towards myself onto pretty much everyone, which manifests as paranoia, feeling disproportionately antagonized over (frequently imaginary) slights, and going out of my way to invent reasons NOT to get close to anyone (or even making myself hate them); and the derealization means I spend too much time stuck in my own thoughts and being, frankly, delusional (or writing lengthy and incoherent forum posts).

Anyway, I've had too much caffeine, my knee's still fucked up from when I tripped on the steps two weeks ago, I really need to take the recycling out, and hip-hop sounds better to me on IEMs than headphones.

This is a beautiful and tragic example of self awareness. You have both my respect and sympathies Mesh. I share in a great deal of what you express minus the circumcision point, "little Klyde" being clipped or not is a mute point for me. Maybe I should care more about "little klyde"??? Shit, now I'm compromised...

Moving steadily forward after completing all my recruiting, I went ahead and polished off Jacobs loyalty mission. Great mission that, whilst en route, yields TONS of element zero. Like Jacob or not, this was a worthwhile endeavor. Now I'm on to taking out a false signal the Blue Suns are using to ransack merchant trade ships (or something like that) and tie up a few loose ends with crew members.

GAMEPLAY NOTE/ I've been playing on the "hard" difficulty (not the crazy hardest, but one step down) and it seemed a little easy for the most part, but the difficulty seems to really be ramping on and up now. What I  enjoy about it at this type of challenge level is how one poor strategic move generally is unforgiving by way of GAME OVER. Battles flow along without frustrating hang ups so long as your positioning and shooting timing are up to snuff but they really don't give you much room for error.

In short, what I am getting at, is they did a superb job in ME2 of balancing the risk/reward factors of battle gameplay to yield a solid degree of "adrenaline rush" to most all encounters. This is even better now that I am getting into more later game stuff and I'm really impressed by the titles ability to elicit excitement in me under gunfire all while keeping me thinking strategically with survival as a priority. I hope this trend of really action oriented gameplay keeps up through the rest of the trilogy because I'm thoroughly loving it at this point.

MASS EFFECT 2/ Finished 2 firewalker missions, all recruiting missions taken care of, can't find Ish's stupid package on the citadel and I think now its time to move on.

I did literally everything I wanted to get to except SHadow Broker DLC so I think that is next before moving on with the narrative.

Quick question. Can anyone tell me if Jacobs' loyalty mission is worth it for any other reason than his loyalty? Can't stand him reallly. Could care less about his characters loyalty or the trophy involved.

I haven't watched anything in quite awhile.

Something possessed me to try out Hulu streaming service and watch a few eps of Rick and Morty without knowing a blessed thing about it. Pretty freakin' clever cartoon if ever I did see one.

You can do it Klyde.

I'll be very disapointed in you if you don't finish.

And...er...so will this kitten.

By all my honer as a real life Nin-Jartist I shall not fail neither you nor that kitten.

Well its just about August

What? No it's n--

fuck 8<

Yup, that was my reaction verbatim Mesh.

UGH! I know exactly how you feel. This was going to be the summer of the Vita, where I manage to catch up on a bunch of my Vita games. I managed to finish a grand total of 2. And I plan on having 2 new ones by the end of the summer. Lot of good that did me.

I need to cut my losses with a few to be honest. I feel like when I look back on this year its gonna all Mass Effect and Bloodborne if I don't get to it in a manner of speaking. Gaming should not feel like something you could "get behind" in but if I don't polish these off, with some releases in the not so distant future, I'm gonna be seriously disgusted with myself.

If only I didn't have to work sleep or eat. I would be right on point damnit.

Starting 2nd plays of Bloodborne and Borderlands 2 really hung me up. To be honest, I tend think I'm gonna continue to play and replay those two until sequels are released.

Its funny how I have NO concept of time.

I am late for everything, always determined to get done with my day and turn in while its still dark only to see dawn every morning.

But THIS is where I draw the line.

What is it I speak of? Well its just about August, I have yet to finish Mass Effect 2. I was determined to move through the trilogies end by fall and I have been totally ignorant of the calender days drifting by as draw and tattoo my little (non-functional) nuts off.


I will not compromise my ability to indulge autumn appropriate games and media because I am that behind on Mass Effect which is probably the best gaming experience I have had since Chrono Trigger.

I am stating all this in the interest of accountability. Something about this journal and community helps keep me dedicated and on course. I am a better gamer thanks to RPGFan and I SHALL NOT FAIL IN SAVING THE GALAXY!!!!

Ok I'm done ranting.

MASS EFFECT 2/ Samara loyalty mission.
Can't believe they give you the option of taking out Samara and recruiting her nympho-nut-asari daughter. I, of course, did what any responsible Shep would do and killed Samara. I mean, come on... she was trying to off her own kid for protheans sake!!!

Yeah, everything that I read just makes elliptical the better choice, I don't want my knees to be totally fucked in a few decades time. Plus I'm not aspiring to be a long-distance runner any time soon.

@Agent: Yeah I was right - I thought you lived in New York, which to my UK brain means you basically live on the set of Sex and the City and are falling over celebrities all the time.

I always plan on walking and doing something less destructive to my joints and get impatient about completing my distance and end up running! LoL

Strangely enough, I've seen and felt better results from walking the same distances that I would run. Everything I've ever read, and anyone whom I've spoken to about it thinks its bullshit but I just feel better not beating the piss out of my body and for some reason, can maintain a better fat/lean ratio with lower impact cardio.

Thing is, everyone has a different metabolic environment and as such the perfect target routine can vary drastically person to person. Ultimately though, NO ONE can convince me (after being a distance runner for some odd 15 years) that excessive or high intensity running is good as a long term program when you can achieve the same positive hormonal/physiological results without putting your body through that type of trauma.
70  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Is brand loyalty "worth it?" on: July 24, 2015, 06:20:06 PM

Brand loyalty. I've got a BUNCH!

Electronics/ Sony everything and Hisense televisions. No one knows about hisense because they are low budget TVs but I swear, once calibrated, I appreciate it more than my Toshiba or Samsung.

Coffee/ A family owned supermarket in the US northeast called "wegmans" has some of the best coffee ever (self admitted coffee snob approved varieties available)

Tattoo Machines/ More of machine builder loyalty than brand per se, Gaston and Soba have made machines that took all the effort out of my "work". Seriously, I will likely tattoo with machines made by these folk until I die.

Cigarettes/ Salem and Camel. The end.

SkinnyGirl/ They make this stuff called "Monks Fruit". I can't have/am extremely sensitive and/or allergic to EVERY other form of sugar or sweetener there is including fructose. I spend most of my dietary allowance on this crap to sweeten my wegmans coffee.

Pencils/ Prismacolor. They are the only company that make a suitably soft enough pencil for me to re-create painterly quality saturation on vellum.

Jeans/ For years, being as small as I am I had to buy kids jeans or womens. Then I discovered express skinny jeans. Adult denim pants that aren't emo-teen skin tight. I own multiple pair and they are the only pants I have worn since I was 23-24.

Cups/ Sheetz "hot cups" keep my wegmans coffee warm like a thermus and hold up to microwave cooking. Amazing space age quality styrofoam.

^Can't beat a set of good speakers. Makes music really come alive. You hear layers that weren't there with cheaper sets/phones. After upgrading the audio system in my car last year, I've spend plenty of time just sitting in there, letting a song finish, well after getting to my destination.

Dear UPS,

You can seriously just leave the cheapass Koss headphones I got with Work Funbux at my door without me signing nobody is going to steal them okay.

This Guy

Set up an account at UPS (you'll be using My UPS). Register your address, and then you can "digitally sign" for any packages en route to that address. Meaning the UPS dude will then leave them there. Make sure you sign for it before it's actually out for delivery. It's usually too late at that point.

As for my irrelevant haps, I've converted to a vertical mouse at work. Never used one before. Had to try it, cuz years of click click click click click click click with regular mice has taken its toll on my wrists. This vertical one is fuggin awesome. Totally takes the strain off. Feels natural as hell once you get used it.

Yepper, you summed up my Sennheiser experience nicely. I can easily see me spending alot more moola' on audio in the future know that I am "aware".

Also, the UPS digital sign info is a golden nugget of wisdom buddy. I can't thank you enough for making me privy to this. Its astounding the modern conveniences that elude me in light of my technological ignorance. I need to work on that.

In Klyded news I need to get an exam and some new eyeballs (contacts). I wish I can do this digitally and have my new eyeballs and specs delivered as this is also a pain in my ass. Someone really needs to open a 24 hr eyecare place for vampiric operators such as myself. Daytime affairs (barring video games) trouble me....

Strange as it is, whomever does my local delivery never makes me sign for anything. I wonder how he/she gets away with it to be honest because I am positive that some of the tattoo supply I order is supposed to require signature.

Mind you, this is a convenience for me and I am not complaining. Waiting around to sign for packages seems a far greater pain in my ass than it really should be.

Packages aside, recently discovered Sennheiser headphones. I feel like I now need to re-listen to everything because of crap I "missed" before ***klyde is amazed***

That was PRECISELY my initial sentiment. Then the addiction overtook me.

The game clicked with me (in terms of controls) far quicker than expected. I was being deliberate and intentional with my vehicle and shots on the goal in a few matches and it was at that point that the fun began.

I am still timid about going online, but negating the AI problems via human players will be a real game changer I imagine.

I'm still playing daily and its yet to wear out its welcome. Quite the opposite, as each passing day it feels super rewarding to get a little better at this for some reason.

My buddy is OBSESSED with those models. The amount of time (and money) he spends on the crazy-scale variety is astounding.

I tip my hat to he who can assemble those. I barely had the patience for the snap together DBZ imports from the 90's (damn rubber'ized clothing REALLY tried my patience!!!)
75  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Rocket League on: July 19, 2015, 05:36:20 PM
I actually didn't get a chance to try it last night. I'll let you know tomorrow. Work's been hectic this week, but I have tomorrow off...

I totally hear ya on "hectic". That was, in truth, why I found Rocket League to be such a blessing. It was really the only game I had time to do anything in at all this last week.
