  1. The Idle Book Club 12: Umberto Eco

    I just finished up The Prague Cemetery last night. Overall i didn't like it as much as The Name of the Rose. The main character is such a perfect asshole that he's hard to identify with (except that he's a foodie, which I loved). The slog through the bigotry of every stripe was less rewarding than the slog through the beginning of TNotR, especially since the Prague-slog continued through the entire book. I'm thinking I might try Foucault's Pendulum as my next foray into Eco, since I remember being struck by the title some time earlier in my life the way Chris was struck by the name of The Name of the Rose.
  2. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

    I was listening to cassettes and doing side ops. I went back to Mother Base to do target missions and I started with R&D. It took me 5 or 6 tries but I got it. Then I moved on to the next one, got it first try. Then on to the command platform. I was running all over looking for the last few targets (very top of the main tower) and I fell down from a catwalk and died. It took me a couple more tries before I finished that one, then I pulled out the iDroid to see what was next. Guess what? No checkpoints between platforms. I get to do R&D again. FUCK EXACTLY THIS PART OF THE GAME. Overall lots of fun. D-Dog all day every day.
  3. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

    It was a fun hunt yesterday! Dropping down and helping low-rank players is fun because I can try weapons I'm not as comfortable with instead of just playing charge blade 100% of the time.
  4. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

    I'm interested in doing multiplayer too. I just made it to the second village. I've been rocking charge blade so far, and it's been a lot of fun, but i feel like it's going to be a pain for everyone else if i use it in MP, since it has a lot of sweeping combos.
  5. Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

    I had an entertaining run today. It started off terribly because I had not idea what soy milk does. I made past the basement 2 boss (Gurglings) with a half heart left and not loving my chances, but the item room on Caves 1 was Libra, and the resulting combination was a ridiculously overpowered build that made the rest of the game trivial by comparison. I managed to catch the 2nd half of the run, including boss rush and mom's heart, thanks to the PS4 game DVR or whatever. This video was not really intended for public consumption, and starts with me struggling to get past some piles of poop.
  6. So much for my day off. Topic maker you are a bad person.
  7. Diablo III

    ^ That. I'm addicted to leveling up, I think.
  8. War is Adorable! Advance Wars Thread

    For the truly ambitious here's something a little different:
  9. Animal Crossing: New Leaf

    speaking of unintentional save game loss: I've had a couple of times where I have been playing and my SD card decided to take a piss. Lost some minor progress but nothing like a basket full of beetles.
  10. Animal Crossing: New Leaf

    Shammack: I have access to the Green Blazer, I'll order you one.
  11. Animal Crossing: New Leaf

    Yeah i saw that the same day i received my second fake in the mail.
  12. Animal Crossing: New Leaf

    I feel like I'm making pretty good headway in this game. I've got the flower shop, something is being built on Main St (this may be my Dream Suite, I paid it off today), and the nooklings are expanding. My house has a second floor and i'm getting a side room. I have an orchard with 3 of every fruit I've seen. (Still looking for apples, persimmons and cherries.) Everything I catch goes to the museum first and my collections are looking pretty good (except for art, that Foxy bastard keeps selling me fakes.)

    Gotcha Juv3nal
  14. Animal Crossing: New Leaf

    Tom Nook always wants you under his thumb. Paid off your loan, eh? Looks like you could use an expansion!
