  1. Safety Town must just be a Michigan institution? I went through something called that too, which also included some fire safety drills (including a simulated house fire.)
  2. Divinity: Original Sin II

    I'm really loving this game so far. The combat's basically got the same weird, exploit-encouraged style to it (which I enjoy, even though I'm not very good at it.) More importantly, they've really tightened up all the areas I had problems with in the first game. The story has more steady pacing, the characters are more fleshed out and enjoyable, and the voice acting is good across the board. That last one's impressive since there's so much of this game. I'm 60something hours in and I don't think I'll be done for at least another 10, based on how stuff seems to be going. A few of the quests have had really obtuse solutions, but there's usually a workaround to those that involves the game's many other mechanics. I've especially enjoyed how often some weird little detail from earlier in the game shows up later on. Some of those are just characters who know each other, but there's also stuff like taming a bird in one act giving you a new option with a ghost bird in another act entirely. It's good.
  3. Books, books, books...

    I read both Ninefox Gambit and Raven Stratagem twice over the course of the last couple weeks, and they're both very close to my favorite science fiction books. They're very light on actually explaining the science (which is a plus in my eyes, honestly) while referring to it in terms that are endearingly weird. I've been trying to push both of them on people for a while now.
  4. Do most people really not eat PB&J as adults? I find that assertion extremely questionable. Of course, I'm only basing my own assertion on the fact that I still eat them.
  5. Endorsements from Thumbs Readers

    I'd like to endorse taking some time to wander through the SCP Foundation site, which hosts a large collaborative writing project. Some of the older articles have seeped out into the rest of the Internet, but most of those are just of the spooky monster variety. A lot of the newer articles are more weird than necessarily scary (though there's still some spooky stuff) and it's an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.
  6. I feel like Nick is actually stealthily just as much of an old man as Chris is but makes an effort to hide it. It still leaks out.
  7. I assume the numbers that pop up before the bosses relate to the numbers on the box (though I don't know how many bosses there are.) My instinct to return to base frequently feels like it starts working against me after I get out of the first area.
  8. Big moon is actually just the sun. Evidence: The Sun is bright. So is the moon. So is big moon. Therefor they are all the same category of objects. I've never seen big moon and the sun in the same place. Big moon is just when the sun calms down a bit and takes a break from all the shining. Classic case of mistaken identity.
  9. West of Loathing

    Without giving too much away, I'm grumpy about the 3 dynamite nonsense in the prologue. Other than that, I had a lot of fun with this game. I feel like resorting to combat quickly probably denied me some good jokes though.
  10. I'm enjoying the game a lot in my first couple hours, though I'm having a hard time figuring out a gameplay loop that works well for me. Do cards give bonuses passively and then heal when they're used (but you lose the passive?) I'm usually pretty good at figuring out games that don't use much text, but this one's pushing the obfuscation pretty hard.
  11. DOTA 2

    I'd personally be fine with going back to one ancient camp per team just as a nerf to Sven.
  12. DOTA 2

    I'd say that people just aren't used to dealing with how Brood mid interacts with the map changes, but I don't have any particular love for the hero so I wouldn't mind seeing some changes. I doubt it will be very viable in the future either way.
  13. DOTA 2

    I don't think KotL aghs really needs a nerf. Gh is just kind of a god? If you have to play really well to get it going and use it I'm not sure it really counts as cheese.
  14. DOTA 2

    I don't think anything that happened this patch was cheese really, except maybe the Brood nonsense. Unless you mean literally nerfing the cheese, which I wouldn't be opposed to.
  15. DOTA 2

    EZ Finals EZ Life Glad to see Kuro finally get that win. I hope they stick together for another year!
