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.

I mentioned it previously, but I for one am planning on going to MAGFest in 2017, so if you guys did a panel I'd definitely show up.  I've never been to one before, so it'd be nice to have one thing that I'd be especially looking forward to.

Solve this problem by going through the correct channels, if possible. Let your boss know that he made alterations to the schedule without consulting you, and that you can't work that day because you have an engagement that you can't drop.  Be firm that you have unchangeable plans, and hopefully it will be enough to get your boss to intervene and give your coworker a talking to.

15 years ago my favorite companies were Square, Konami and Namco. Now it's more like Atlus and Falcom for sure, and then Squeenix and Namco are on probation.  Fuck Konami forever.

The road quality thing makes me think of driving from Pennsylvania to New Jersey on the turnpike. Cross the bridge and you notice an immediate improvement in road quality.

Canada invented all-dressed chips, so I consider that country the king of snack foods.

This is Climber, he hates cuddles.

This is Ezio, he is loud and loves food and boxes.

This is Hippo and he is the best.

One of the pictures taken is kinda unflattering.

I feel your pain. I have one picture of myself where I like the way I look. In every other picture I look gross and it drives me crazy (and I'm sure it drives other people crazy when I make them delete pictures of me). This includes all of the pictures of me at my wedding where my wife looks fantastic and I look like garbage.

Oddly enough, the only good picture I have of myself was taken when I was very, very drunk.

I'm not stoked about the return of demon conversations. I know that's probably sacrilege, but it's been the one part of the series I never really liked, and I was happy when Persona 3 followed in Digital Devil Saga's footsteps by removing it.  I found the shuffle time mechanic just a lot more streamlined and better for my style of play.

I turn 30 this year...

The RPGFan community is getting old :P

I hit 30 next year. We should start a club--we can call it the Aging Archery Enthusiasts.

Everybody come play overwatch with me on PC. (I'm terrible)

So I'm considering taking my first vacation ever next year (as I don't work a regular 9-5 week work schedule), and I'm debating on going to Japan or maybe Ireland. Japan obviously for the electronics and video game related reasons, though I would like to travel outside of it to the more rural areas as well for some culture shock. Ireland's a little more interesting...besides the semi obvious heritage background, for a long time I considered that to be my "retirement home" locale. Anyone have some input or suggestions regarding either, I'd love to hear them.

Never went to Ireland, but I spent 4 months in Japan, with most of that time being in a more rural area up north (Akita) and I'd really recommend that northern region of the country. Not only is it beautiful, but the food is awesome and there's still a surprising number of things to do.  I've also heard good things about Hokkaido, although I didn't get to make it up that way myself. If I ever go back, I want to hit up the Sapporo brewery there.

With regard to the discussion of Supergiant games on the most recent episode: I found Transistor to be much, much more compelling than Bastion, although I enjoyed both games.  I didn't find the talkative sword to be at all annoying or hipstery, and really I just got very drawn into the world.  It didn't seem like anybody on the podcast really shared my enthusiasm for the game, but I binged it over two days, and when I beat it it left me feeling that melancholy you feel when you finish a really good book.

Also, you guys should totally do something at Magfest, because I'm seriously considering going to the next one that happens, so you'd have at least one panel attendee!

Lastly, goodbye Stephen! Good luck in future things!

One of my new bosses smiles at me... A LOT... and it's starting to make it uncomfortable for me to be around her.  What's worse, she is VERY attractive (but not at all my type, I would never date a librarian), and it gets me over analyzing why her constant smiles are making me so uncomfortable in the first place.  I don't THINK it's a sexual thing (and even if it is, is a straight white man even allowed to be uncomfortable about something like this in today's society). Does her intent matter? Do I even have a right to be upset?  Oi. She is a very nice woman, but I hate her goddamn guts now because every time I see her I spend the next 35 minutes stuck in a perpetual harassment paradox.

edit: every time I think about this woman, I always imagine that she has FREEZING hands, and that makes me hate her even more.

I smile at people any time we make eye contact specifically for the reason that I have "resting bitch face" and got tired of people asking me what's wrong. Maybe this is a similar case.

As much as I loved the art from Nier and Drakengard (I've got a poster with Nier, Zero, Caim and Nowe in my office at work) I am really digging the Yoshida character designs.  I probably seem crazy and am in the minority for this, but I'm more hyped for this game than any other RPG in the works.  I imagine the only thing that could unseat this would be another Suikoden game, but I've pretty much given up hope of that happening.

I got contact lenses last week.  Being able to see without having glasses on still fees profoundly wrong to me, but the feeling is fading a bit.
