^ This is true. I haven't played this one in quite some time, but in all of the times I've played it in the past, I don't remember having many issues with money (if any).

I did give up hangovers though. Best decision I ever made.

This.
Effective enjoyment of mind-altering chemicals (or anything, really) is all about moderation.

I'll personally never give up herb or alcohol completely. I definitely like having my wits about me when I need 'em, but to me, complete sobriety all of the time is weird and boring.
Different strokes, for sure.

But as soon as I made it to Kohlingen and remembered I could re-recruit Shadow for a low low extortionate fee, I ended up trekking all the back to Narshe so I could dump Gau and free up an extra party slot.

Smart choice. ;)


I nabbed a Fire Knuckle for Sabin in a chest in ZoZo. Since it casts fire when he attacks it's off limits for me to equip, but I was wondering if it's still ok for me to sell it (an item I'm intentionally pretending doesn't exist) or if you all think I should I just discard those kinds of items as soon as I find them?

If I remember correctly, you mentioned selling magical items off as a possibility in your original post, so I say go ahead and make a deal if you need the cash.

So if that NX update is legit, it's basically a 3DS successor that you can hook up to the TV?

So then, I wonder if the Wii U version of Breath of the Wild will remain technically superior...?

Still not sure if the pizza and root beer for dinner was worth it.

Pizza and root beer are ALWAYS worth it.

First, I simply must say that living together before marriage does NOT prepare one for living together after marriage.  It's a misconception that is spread around as fact, despite there being essentially nothing to back it up. 

Unless one or both of the people involved is one of those repressed nut-jobs who changes after marriage, I'm gonna have to disagree with your assessment.

You won't really know someone until you live with them.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not at all saying you'll get 100% insight into the rest of your days together, but it gives a good hint as to what one can expect. It's always a good idea to test the waters before swimming. Especially when those waters are a lifetime commitment.
I lived with my wife for 7 years before getting hitched, and the only thing marriage changed about our relationship was how close we felt to each other. We already knew what to expect out of each other at that point.




EDIT: Actual haps.
Over the weekend, I hooked up the ol' Wii for the first time in many months, so that my son and I could play some games together. When I wasn't looking, he erased my license (account) on Mario Kart Wii (by accident - he's 4). Even though I hadn't played the game in what felt like forever, I was pissed that all of my unlockables were re-locked. So, I yelled at him a bit about it, and then we made up.
We then proceeded to have a great damn time working on unlocking everything again.

So, I realized I was kind-of forcing myself to play Grandia. Not because I don't like it, but because I think I need a break from RPGs for a bit, and didn't want to admit it initially....

So, I'm now playing Remember Me, which is basically Capcom's take on the cyber-punk genre, with some minor Ass Creed elements mixed in. It's not great, but it's not bad. The story/plot is mostly 'meh', but the atmosphere is done well. The fighting system (the biggest/most important part of the game), while somewhat unrefined, is fun overall. The platforming sections feel forced. They pretty much make it seem like you're just going through the motions. It'd honestly be cool if they incorporated more puzzles into the mix.
I'm currently on Chapter 4 (or maybe 5?). About 40% of the way through the main game. It's decent, mindless fun. Pretty much what the doctor ordered.



Kingdoms of Amalur - Character level 14. Made it to the east coast of the main land. Working on the second set of quests for both the Travelers and Scholia Arcana. Upgrading the sagecraft skill reminded me of how easy it is to become over-powered in this game. With the simple addition of some righteous gems to my equipment, I have become a force to be reckoned with. Playing on Hard difficulty is practically necessary to get any real challenge out of this game. As someone here once told me though, Amalur is more about all of the things you can do/accomplish, rather than straight up challenging you. ...Kind of the opposite of the Dark Souls series. I can totally see that.
These are minor gripes in the end. Still having a great time exploring and kickin' ass.

I had to google what knob celery is - celeriac, gotcha.

Have you ever cut a pineapple using a kitchen knife, or a turnip? That's generally how I cut the rind of a celeriac off. Not much fuss if your knife is sharp!

That's exactly my problem: I haven't had a decent knife in years. I should probably buy one sooner rather than later. And a larger pot. And a bread knife. And a bunch of other stuff. My kitchen is kind of bare.

Unless it's cheap, and/or beat to shit, try sharpening the knife you have before dropping coin on a new one. Could go a very long way...

^ I would've worn the shit out of that 17 years ago...


...I feel old now.



EDIT: I must admit Creed songs can be fun when doing drunken karaoke: "With ahms wad oh-pawn"!

In my haps... I will be married in less than 7 weeks. So awesome, but also kind of weird to think about. My fiance and I do not currently live together-

Have you lived together before...? If not, I wish you the best of luck, cuz you'd truly be a gamblin' man.

^ I was pretty curious about Titan AE back in its day, but never got around to seeing it, cuz I kept hearing that it's not that great...


Saw Deadpool over the weekend. What a fantastic film. It is everything it should have been, and more. Ryan Reynolds was practically born for that part.
Superhero movies like Deadpool; Antman; and GotG I truly enjoy because they have a great sense of humor to go with the action. Some of those other superhero movies take themselves way too damn seriously...

Can we get some good news for a change? 

Not as long as you continue to get it from mass media...

...goddamn Baconators.

I've had two of those in my life. One of those times was on a dare. Both instances, my body went in to a half-shutdown kind of state afterwards. No more of them for me.
Now, their spicy chicken sandwich? I can eat the shit out of those.


It's been 3 years and I still can't believe my lady even talks to me
I've been married to my wife for 3 years and we've been together for 10, and if I think too hard about that my brain starts to hurt out of pure bafflement that she's dealt with me this long.

That's when you know they truly love ya, fellas. ;) 

Been with my lady for 15 years (married for 6 of them), and there's no doubt she would have hauled ass by now if she couldn't stand this hot mess.

^ I appreciate the laugh. Your ridiculous blanket statements are always good for a chuckle. Especially because you actually believe them.

BorderLands PS/ I think after having played the BLs franchise for the last 2 years or so I finally realize I've been TOTALLY playing it wrong. I've actually been playing it like I would approach an RPG and it is way more enjoyable/time effective NOT to be a thorough completionist. That is, searching and leaving no stone un-turned and fighting everything pales in comparison to blitzing through everything and firing like a maniac to reach objectives.

YES! That is something that took me a while to realize, as well. I'd get too caught up in comparing gun stats, and trying to find and complete all missions/quests. Then it dawned on me: 'Tis NOT an RPG with shooter elements. Had to flip that approach around. Great times followed.
