  • It is strange to me to be called "stingy" for not paying for the meal and movie of my date, when she demands I pay for her meal and movie.

    If you ask me, I call that "Wanting to save money"!

    I'd call that reasonable. You can't expect others to always buy stuff for you.

    I thought being stingy means to be prone to shouting insults?
    If you haven't seen me around lately... Yeah... Someone got me addicted to FFXIV. I've accomplished nothing in the last two weeks.
    I think our new policies for our IT department are going to get them in trouble. Just had one where the IT guy flat out lied about helping.

    Sounds like our new policies at one of my jobs too, I say within 4 - 6 months of the policy either the customers will revolt or everyone will quit.

    The policy is that all "interactions" with our "Tickets" are recorded and sent to the one who put the work ticket in. The guy outright lied about talking with me and telling me how to fix the problem, then put the Ticket as "Solved". He wrote in it as if I wouldn't be able to read it, and as if it were going to only go to his boss. :D

    @Tai_MT, I do not understand why people don't their jobs if they do not want to do that job quits and find a new job. I guess he hates his job, but cannot find another job.
    Okay, completed all the achievements in Borderlands 1 -_-" what a grind that was. Onwards to Borderlands 2, I guess... Xbox 360 version.

    Borderlands is more fun to play together... we have to complete two versions of Borderlands 2 and all it's DLC... and start the Pre-Sequel (which we bought after the announcement, since we've never played it)… and I have yet to complete the Robot Revolution DLC achievements from Borderlands 1... Just... ugh...

    I'm not even sure if he wants to pick up the "Game of the Year" edition of Borderlands 1 as well as the Telltale games and get those achievements as well... I just... no... I'm not doing Borderlands 1 a second time. Underdome Riot was the worst DLC of any game I've ever played.
    I just listened to an hour of Navi from Ocarina of Time saying "Hey! Listen!" Not sure why it didn't bother me... It's... hypnotic...
    "Access to guns has been linked to gun related crimes". Well, in other news, "access to water has been linked to drowning crimes" as well.

    I'd posit that if everyone owned a gun and there was a good chance that the person you threated with one could/would shoot you back, or shoot you first... There's a lot less shootings. I mean, the "Wild West" in the United States proved that. There were remarkably few "shoot outs" and "shootings" during that period despite everyone owning a gun.

    Actually, I'd argue that the reason most gun owners use a gun is for hunting or for self-defense. Or for suicide (iirc, most gun deaths in US are actually from suicide).

    In regards to everyone having a gun... doesn't Texas have a lot of people who carry? And I'm sure they have less gun deaths than Illinois (home of Chicago).
    I work in state government. We rarely cancel work for anything. It's canceled today due to the incoming terrible storm. :D

    Clearly not all states are the same. Mine (well the one I used to live in) would shut down over ice on the road...that thawed by 6AM...without telling anyone so that if you were supposed to be there that morning you'd drive an hour and a half in the ice only to be met by a sign on the door that says "call so-and-so to reschedule if you were supposed to be here today".

    @The Stranger Real storm. We're supposed to get snow, high winds, probably ice, and like 20 inches of snow (60cm).

    @Philosophus Vagus I live in South Dakota. Storms like this are fairly common, so are harsh winters. Most of the winter weather is funneled here from Canada because it hits The Black Hills. We have unreasonably hot summers too :D But, it's windy every single day here.
    So, I spent like a month in a pretty bad depression. What was my cure? 30 minute walk to a "Documenting Discipline" Training Course. Huh.

    As someone who not only suffers from depression but Generalized Anxiety Disorder (not to mention losing my mind due to overthinking), you have my sympathy. I just wish my cure was so simple :(

    I don't usually have "depression", but I do sometimes just suffer from random bouts of it. They usually last a few days or a week. But, the last one lasted a little over a month and I just didn't have motivation to do anything. A walk in the cold, with my brain to myself and no obligations... as well as taking a class where I got to shine... cleared me up.
    I'm probably the only one who hopes the new Metroid Prime comes out before the new Pokémon games. I mean... Metroid IS a better game...

    Well... that sucks. But, hopefully it's as good as Prime 1 and Prime 2 when it releases now... and not as terrible as Prime 3... or with a rubbish story like Other M.

    Still, I'd rather have a new Metroid game before a new Pokémon game.
    Playing Warframe, pick up a new weapon. I realize later it's a shotgun that fires glass shards. I've never seen anything so beautiful.
    I started watching "Rise of the Shield Hero". Well, crap... Now I kind of wish I didn't have to wait each week for the new episodes.
    I don't want to go to work today. It snowed heavily, the sidewalks will be crap, and everyone is going to call in. Being the boss sucks.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vuJitrbTFY This review explains the whole game much better than I do. It's not a game for everyone. It certainly isn't. But, for those it appeals to... It's quite fun. For me, it's everything Destiny 1 was advertised to be... and failed to deliver on. It literally does everything those ViDocs claimed Destiny would do in the early advertising campaign.

    I think because I'm what you call an "Amazon Chaser", I tend to enjoy writing strong and confident women characters. Is that weird?
    Tai_MT
    Tai_MT
    I'm not even sure what "fetishizing real women" is.

    @The Stranger Nah, Amazons are a kind of woman, ha ha. Think "Zoey" from Firefly... or Ripley from "Alien".

    I tend to write women mostly in this archetype. I think it's because it's the sort of woman I look for personality wise.

    @Tai_MT So, not the mythical all female tribe? :P I've never been attracted to the bad ass fighter chick thing. I prefer the cute, kinda kooky, girls. Playfulness and silliness are far more important to me than strength and ambition. Such people make me feel alive. :)
    Tai_MT
    Tai_MT
    Well, to be fair, my ideal "Amazon" is not arrogant, but is strong willed. She's also quite feminine. What I look for in a woman is basically an equal partner. Someone with dreams, aspirations, and the will to achieve them. Doesn't usually matter what those dreams or aspirations are, so long as she's serious about persuing them.
    It is strange that when a person doesn't like something (IE: movie), the criticism fans of it give is "you're too stupid to understand it".

    Took my car to the shop today. I hope they can fix it. In other news, I need to work on my game, but just haven't felt like it.
    Had to walk uphill... through 2 foot snow drifts... for two whole blocks. Why? Because our local businesses DO NOT CLEAN THEIR SIDEWALKS.
    The Stranger
    The Stranger
    Sounds like my neck of the woods. lol. No one cleans the paths outside, not even the city council. The main roads are cleared, but not the footpaths. A lot of the minor roads are left buried 'neath the snow too. Oh, I can think of a single shop near me which clears snow and ice from its land. Most of the time, when it's icy, it's safer to walk at the side of the road.

    That sucks, hopefully it's a simple fix and not something requiring a mechanic to look at it. I've been stuck trying to get a mechanic to change out some struts for me for two weeks now; makes me want to just invest in a lift...but where the hell would I put a lift?
    Tai_MT

    I have no idea what it may be. I went through the Owner's Manual and it says that if the Check Engine light is on, but it's not flashing and not red, that is' some sort of problem with the exhaust efficiency thing or something... And that can cause shaking or misfiring...

    I talked to my mom and she was telling me that it's probably just time for me to get a new car. That I got my $3000 out of this one (I've had it 8 years). So, I'll check my accounts and see what kind of money I have in order to see if I can afford another cheap little car, maybe. There goes the money I was saving for a house. :(

Here's a quality DPS class idea: The Beekeeper, who uses the "Bees!!" skill to attack and poison enemies.
Please don't create long, boring cutscenes in which characters do nothing but stand around talking.
What if I took a lesson from Half Minute Hero? Let the player get dumb powerful each area, but reset them down to just slightly stronger than before for the next map?
