Him: “I keep hearing the cats bumping around, but I can’t figure out what it is. Or where they are. Or what they’re doing. … … See, there it is again!” Me: “… … … You mean the fireworks?” Him: “Uh… oh. Yeah. Maybe that’s it.” Me: “It’s New Year’s Eve.” Him: “I got it, … More New Year’s Eve in the real world. (Ok, my world…)
Some random thoughts about Persona 5. *Light spoilers for a few things in the first bit of the game (all occurring before July, game time), namely: comments about a specific character’s likeability and how another character treats him; a character’s outfit, and detail-free comments about the bits of the protagonist’s past that you learn at … More Random Friday: Stuff about things, & Nick Fury saves the day.
Gaming. You know… in general. When it comes to video games, I’m all over the place. For example… over the last three months, I played all the way through South Park: The Stick of Truth and The Fractured But Whole. Then I was playing Need for Speed: Payback. Then I stopped to play Assassin’s Creed: Origins. … More Game overload, déjà vu, & evil clowns (not that kind).
For me, the best part about Christmas falling on a Monday isn’t “yay, three-day weekend!!!”, it’s, “yay, Xmas Eve isn’t on a weekday!!!” My workplace has a tradition for Christmas Eve. Not a fun tradition, like opening presents or eating lots of pie or throwing mashed potatoes at creepy uncle Joe or setting the turkey … More Holiday boredom & soul-sucking evil.
Accounting+ on PSVR. I played it last night, but really, you don’t play Accounting+. It plays you. I obviously didn’t catch the earlier Vive version. If you didn’t, either, I’ll warn you: they say that the PSVR version contains double the content. From what I’ve read, it does. Which still makes it a ridiculously short … More On Accounting+, Theron, & road rage.
Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year is… “Youthquake.” Who the fuck has ever actually used the word “youthquake”?! Outside of the media, that is. If you want to read about it, you can take a gander at the write-ups, which will explain fascinating things to you… you know, like how the word comes from combining … More Random Friday: Star Wars and words and stuff.
Do a few Google searches, and you’ll notice there’s at least one topic that seems to unite people. It goes something like this: “NOBODY wants to hear about your dreams, loser!” We’re not talking hopes-and-dreams dreams, we’re talking that weird shit that goes on in your brain while you sleep. This is one of those … More Let me tell you about this dream I had…
Romance in a galaxy far, far away. To rehash the obvious: games like Dragon Age and Mass Effect have a lot of fans who just want to get their nookie on. Romance options (or lack thereof) are always a big thing when a new DA or ME game is released. Usually, I find myself zeroing … More Andromeda 90210, multiverses, & Black Friday fails.
Net neutrality. I’m sure you’ve all heard or seen this a lot lately, so I won’t drone on. If you need a clear explanation of what it means and how it CAN AND DOES AFFECT YOU, check out Net Neutrality: What You Need to Know Now. Sign a petition. Tweet. Send a message to the FCC. … More Random Friday: Net neutrality, nuclear nightmares, nephilim & nettlesome no-no’s.
