Your yearly excitement with 7-11 always makes me grin.

So, do you go there any other time of the year, or just this one day?

I don't even always make it there this day, but it does get me excited. I may have explained this before, but when I was growing up in Brooklyn we'd visit friends on Long Island, where I became very jealous of the cheap soft drink bonanza offered by 7/11s, and I think a fascination remains to this day. This was reinforced on one super-hot day when we happened in for a Slurpee, which was insanely refreshing at that moment, reminding me how welcome something like that can be on a day like this.

"I'm thinking of selling my theremin, I haven't touched it in years"

That one made me laugh.

I didn't get the pavlov reference,the irony bus stop one or Benoit B Mandelbrot though.

First two seem easy enough to figure out, but the Mandelbrot one flew over my head too.

Can't you pound it back down with a rubber mallet? Or even put a piece of scrap wood on top of the sill and hit it with a hammer.

Yeah, when all else fails, hit the shit out of it!


Well, we ARE men. The forceful solution is always the right one!

Haha, indeed. Got the window moving again. Now we need to get one of those little adjustable screens. There's actually a space for a storm screen there, but I don't seem to have it. I wonder if it's a standard size that can be replaced?

And for the record, the quarantine was simply keeping the door closed so the bugs wouldn't populate the rest of the house before I got this under control.

This is the biggest collection of click-bait titled articles I have ever seen on Blues

I'm not sure what happened today. That "19 Maps" piece was just awful. It sounded like something about the history of the planet - but I actually got a list of which states begin with which letter and a diagram of what the US would look like if every state were a kitten. I like the levity in OooB but the inclusion of that was a bit of a low point!

It is a satire of clickbait articles, which I personally found very funny.

Did the people that formerly made up Ascaron make this or did they sell off the IP?

Deepsilver owned the IP.. and yeha, it's a different studio

Keen Games
Makers of such shovel ware as
Virtual Villagers (2009, Nintendo DS)
What's Cooking with Jamie Oliver (2008, Nintendo DS)
TNT Racers (2010, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Playstation Portable)
Anno 1701: Dawn of Discovery (2007, Nintendo DS)

This developer never before made a PC Game, yet alone a hackn's slash.

They were *announced* as the developer of a PC game (albeit web-based), but that was cancelled.

Yeah it's mirroring the issues we see in kids today - lack of exercise and too much crappy food. I guess I shouldn't be surprised when you look at the people who are responsible for them. I think a lot of people buy dogs thinking that it will force them to get outdoors and exercise more. After awhile they discover that they still don't like physical activity and then end up just shoving it in the backyard once in awhile. I have family who does that and clearly just aren't up to the responsibility of pet ownership yet refuse to give or sell the dog to someone who wants it.

My dogs have always been well trained but all dogs beg to some extent, people just have to learn how to say no which shouldn't be hard. I don't know if they feel guilty or are just too stupid to realize what they're doing but paying some company thousands to fix such a simple problem is simultaneously depressing and hilarious.

Neither of our dogs ever begged, because they never got enough reinforcement to suggest it would do anything. Hudson the wonder dog did show some signature terrier independence by stealing food left within her reach on the coffee table if left alone, but I could leave the Gunnar-man alone with a steak on that table and he wouldn't touch it because he knows it's not for him. In fairness, it's a lot easier to achieve this state with an Airedale and a poodle... I understand how tough it can be for owners of food-oriented dogs like labs and beagles, but still, no one is forcing you to feed them.

And owners who don't walk their dogs shouldn't have them.

No links? No Screenshots? I would think that anyone wanting to get their game released and get out attention would require at least some screenshots of this new game.

There were a couple of pieces of art accompanying the announcement. I didn't find them helpful, but after this comment I added them in so you can judge for yourself.

I'm not even slightly surprised that people are overfeeding their pets given how many dumb parents overfeed their kids and refuse to admit that they are fat. Reading that article is a wake up call for how many irresponsible pet owners there are and how over the top the pet care industry has become - pet hotels, pet spas, doggy facials etc. I mean holy shit just read this:

Besides the ‘‘pawlates,’’ the camp was filled with swimming, nature hikes, treadmill trots, facials, massages and healthy treats like organic granola, string beans and carrots.

Hahah. Train your dog, exercise it regularly, take it to the vet and don't feed it horrible bullshit. It really isn't that hard to give a pet a decent life.

I have to say this one astounded me too. I have had three pets as an adult, and not one of them has ever been even an ounce overweight. It does not take much willpower to avoid overfeeding them.

Had the same experience there, Blue. Yeah, I'll never go back to them again.

Maybe you thought I meant we were at Five Guys, but I didn't actually call out the place by name. It was actually a place called Rare, and the fault may have been partly mine, as I did not see where it said the burger I ordered was flambeed (I ordered it for the meat mix). Even then, though, I still can't imagine preparing any burger without searing it. My pals who ordered normal burgers didn't have a problem.

Dude...they were asking the draftees "so who are you wearing?" as part of the post draft interview. That is just.....sad.

As always, money doesn't buy good taste.

I think in this case it has the opposite effect. It seems they cared a lot more about their clothes looking expensive than good.

Isn't it technically swapping gamespy for steam?



When I wrote it I guess it just seemed like it meant swapping one for the other, but now that you point it out, it does seem more logical this way.

Purposefully cripple product = unequal treatment. Or, as their own developers put it "is PC only, who cares."

Was that confirmed?

Yes it was commented in the games source files, you can see it yourself as just as easily.

AAA publishers view the PC as an unimportant platform outside of DLC and microtransactional revenue. That's why all of the innovation on PC is happening outside of that space.

That comment is for PC graphics code amid a bunch of console code. Doesn't that seem more like a comment meant to denote what platforms the code was for rather than a buried public statement of platform prejudice? That DsoG link even says the same thing.

I think I sent this in several hours before Cutter!

I saw Cutter's comment while I was playing a game. I hadn't opened my mail. Sorry about that.

If it makes you feel better, a press release from inXile came before your mail.

Again with the videosift links, they just embed youtube! Link to youtube!

If the YouTube links were found among the incredible flood of videos on YouTube by VideoSift, isn't it fair that they get a visit in exchange? As someone who posts stories that include links to other places, I know it really burns me up a bit when my esteemed colleagues in the games press just use the links and can't be bothered to credit where they found the news.

Well, that should definitely speed up development. :p

Nah, that's why this is not a story about the new engine. They just say they've tweaked the engine so much it doesn't resemble it's original form anymore, so it's all part of the same development continuum.

As of 06/12/2014 I will ONLY post positive messages. I am done trying to tell the truth about sucky games.

The implication that you have been curtailed from being critical is pretty irksome to me in light of your abuse of my willingness to let you have your say. Sorry, I'm done playing.

You shouldn't be making negative comments LgFriess. Because they get banned!

The name calling that was budding into a flame war got the posts deleted, trolling will earn a ban.

If you are trying to prove a point about the kind of postings that will earn a ban, you'll be happy to know you are on the verge of doing so.
