Out of the Blue

Having made the generous mistake of giving some away, we are actually almost done with the gallon of chili I made just over a week ago. This prompted a painful discussion over whether this meant the next batch should be larger, so it lasts longer, or smaller, so we don't end up consuming an entire cow over a very short span. Of course we could formulate a plan that involved a more moderate approach to consuming the chili, but I think we know that's not realistic.

Oh, and Hotline Miami is downloading right now. I see Jaguar grabbed it - any comments? Thinking I will indulge this evening....

I don't get the attraction to 8 bit games. I've spent $1000s over the last 20 years trying to upgrade my hardware to get away from 8 bit graphics, so I feel no nostalgia to return. Can someone enlighten me?

Fun is fun regardless of the graphics.

Except if the graphics are a major distraction to an individual, then fun is not "fun regardless of graphics".

Semantics? Maybe but I generally tend to agree. Why pay for 8 bit graphics as a major point when you can download ROMs and emulators for free?
