        I've never tried gin and juice. ive had gin on its own... tastes like rubbing alcohol.

        Yeah straight gin is a horrible idea, gin with orange juice is basically just orange juice. A bit bitterer than straight oj (which I think is too sweet anyway) but as far as mixed drinks go it's one of the least alcohol tasting you can get, which makes it perfect to sip on and let sneak up on you when doing buzzed perma-death game playthroughs.

        I dislike anything alcoholic (and coming from an ex barman it's kind of hilarious) but that's a good game. Have fun.

      Nioh's online is terrible. Doesn't matter whether I'm summoning help for a twilight mission or doing pvp, everyone I get just 1hkos to win.

        Singleplayer is pretty fun, plays a bit like bloodborne set in 15th century Japan. If you are into the online features of such games though it's a terrible choice as I can't seem to get anyone who isn't extremely OP.

        I was doing a twilight mission fighting Omi-Bozu earlier and got a guy who just stood their while I fought the boss for a good 5 minutes. I'd landed dozens of hits and only shaved off 1/4 of his health. Then he walks up to it and does one attack that wipes the remaining 3/4 instantly. Kinda takes the fun out of both pvp and cooperation where your friend/competitor breaks the game with one swipe of their blade.

        I hate that kind of crap. When I played RDR ( ps3 ) online I would just take everyone around me out because it got annoying having people do stuff like that. Or kill and camp my spawn site. oh man, that stuff irritates me.

        @SpaceBot it's open and roomy. It started because the house has 15 foot ceilings and it was easier to heat and cool the attic than buying a 5k cc unit. There was also a gaping hole in the roof that rather than fixing I made into a doorway and built a sort of widows walk while shoring up the foundation so that after I take the dogs out in the morning I'll sit out there and watch the sun rise over the treetops.

        I'm convinced the voices I hear are beings that are far more than mere hallucinations, as they seem to have wills of their own, emotions, personalities, etc.

        Some people say it's its own entity that can interact with you and others view it as a compartmentalized alternate personality...so self-created disassociative personality disorder. I couldn't tell you as I never got a meaningful experience out of the exercises. Then again there was a failed suicide attempt in-between the tulpa and my first dream so maybe near death is the catalyst.

        Being spiritual I have different approaches to the topic. Which I won't get into.
        However if it's something that is self-caused(either inadvertently or knowingly)isn't that better than a mental illness symptom?The first option means it can be dealt with again by the person, while the illness option means it's out of the person's power to change it
        I think you're both very brave and I'm learning much from this,thanks

        Not really regretting it so far though. Basically an improved bloodborne with a Japanese folklore theme rather than lovecraftian horror. Definitely the way to go, ds slow paced combats just felt dated to me since bb. Made ds3 more a chore than a game.

        @Tarq they should definitely be allowed, part of the reason I liked the canceled show I'm bemoaning is the fact it was the only show in recent memory to fairly portray both sides of my country current political climate to an extent. The problem is that an entire industry seems run by one ideology right now and it's finding any excuse to run anyone who doesn't tow their party line out of it.

        I used to tow that line and still consider myself center left, but the version of the left that leads right now have run so far into extremism that I don't feel there's any place for moderates among them anymore, they frequently lable moderates like me as far right in fact. This isn't a rant against an antithetical party to me, I'm truly sick at how closed-minded and censoring what was my side of politics has become.

        It just hangs up on start and then auto-shuts down, no errors. Works perfectly in playtest. Only have one plug-in, hopefully it's not that though as the game is kinda built around it.

To be fair my original thought was for him to be lying on the whiskey bottle, but once the concept sketch came out I thought it'd look better if the water pipe was by my dog like my brother's dog passed it and mine was about to take a puff so the bottle and the pipe switched places.

        There's this nice balancing act when it comes to feeding on people, and the districts they inhabit. Devouring too many people in a single area might cause the entire area to fall into anarchy and become overrun by monsters and the diseased- the old inhabitants now dead or missing. The more citizens you kill, the lower the health rating of that district gets, which means new diseases spread.

        I'm thinking of buying a decent camera just for hiking purposes. Being able to just buy things on impulse is a new experience for me, but since I quit doing mma and martial arts I've been replacing that free time with side jobs and am at a point right now where all of my living expenses only amount to about 30% of the cashflow I've got coming in. It feels nice, unusual but nice.
