I just watched an hour long video of someone playing XCOM 2. They had to destroy a structure and return to their drop zone to win. It's so frustrating to watch them send their shotgun/melee class out to destroy the objective instead of doing it from long range with snipers. -_-" Seriously. That went on 6 turns longer than it should have.
I woke up at three fourty a.m. today. Nightmare woke me and I didn't want to go back to sleep. That's rare for me, considering I don't even usually hit REM cycles when I sleep. So, I did some actual paper and pencil mapping for D&D and played some Tomb Raider. Now I get to work on the set-up for the campaign! After breakfast, of course.
I just saw on my Facebook feed that a bunch of my friends (and the people who made the meme) can't do math. Yep, the stupid powerball crap. "We could end poverty, blah blah blah". Nope, wrong, you did the math incorrectly. Remember when they used to teach math in school? Apparantly, that's no longer the case.
Someone just tried to convince me that I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the "boiled" steaks at restaurants and an actual fried/grilled steak. I come from a place that creates its own steaks, so why wouldn't I know the difference? Maybe a silly City Slicker can't... But I can! I avoid restaurants that boil their freakin' steaks. I'm not paying more for less.
Meh, my package got "delayed due to weather". How does that even happen in my state? terrible weather is like... THE NORM here. Weather where it's being shipped from isn't even bad, actually. -_-" I was hoping to read these books over the weekend.
So... I ordered D&D Fifth edition books this morning. Got a small group (three people) ready to go irl to play with me. I really hope it wasn't a waste of money and is really fun. The selling point for me? More emphasis on roleplaying, less on combat this time out.
For Christmas... I got a card table! FINALLY! I have a workspace! I can write away from the distraction of my computer! I can work on other projects away from the distraction of my computer! And yes, I can also work on my game away from the distraction of my computer.
I'm tired of living in a world of "Good Enough". You know what's "Good Enough"? When nobody can do what you dol ike you can and you cannot be replaced. That is "Good Enough". Anything less and you're just a loser.
It sometimes makes me fairly sad that a lot of the most interesting and yet obscure anime I watch earns such low marks from critics and reviewers. I mean, I know what I watch isn't exactly "enlightened", but a lot of it is at least better than Naruto in terms of ratings... sheesh...
I've been working on plugins to make it easier to incorporate Persona 3's Once More batsys into MV games. One makes it so you can have states automatically applied to the target and/or user when their hit crits or targets a weakness... I could use testers for it, though. Maybe I'll make a thread in the JS Plugins In Development board about it?
