date rape?! Man... can't even imagine. Sorry to hear it. That's one of those things a guy can never say in today's climate. It'll be interpreted as totally minimizing or ridiculing the act on a woman.


Honestly I don’t think it was as bad as if I had date raped her. There wasn’t a threat (explicit or implied) of violence if I didn’t comply. She was an alcoholic twig who didn’t care for physical activities while I lifted weights and played sports; I wasn’t concerned for my physical safety. But I was coerced into having sex I didn’t want to have and had directly said “no” to, so I don’t know what else to call it but date rape.

wow that's wild. Unconsensual sex is always about power and she's exhibiting all the signs of someone who desperately needs to be in total control. Crazy.

I worked on a haunted farm hay-ride once too! There was a maze and everything. Me and this guy would dress as devils and we'd ambush the hay ride. We'd plant this little friend of ours, Corey, on the ride as an innocent participant, then we'd throw him off the ride and murder him, lol. So much fun. Met a girl doing that who i dated for 18 months. We sort of had a moment in the hay maze totally by accident.

but yeah, dating alcoholics is awful. I did that only once.

Try being married to one. 3 days after the birth of our first son she's in jail for a public intox cuz she snick off with her mom to the bar and then her mom got a DUI (in a rental car). And I'm the jackass that helped them hide it from my wife's stepdad.

I feel weird about New Pokemon Snap; which heretofore shall be known as Snap 2 in this ball of text because that name is atrocious.

Snap 2 is adequate. It fits the loose definition of what people wanted from a sequel well enough that fans will have fun with it. But it has some questionable design choices/flaws that are proving unpopular. I guess it comes down to how many straws do you need to build a camel?

Some common complaints:
- You can’t satisfy quests with previously taken photos.
- You can’t submit more than one photo per mon per run despite the game having overlapping quests and multiple completely separate photo categories per mon.
- You can’t turn the online off in the settings. You have no choice but for some of your menus to look like Tumbler/Tiktok.
- The online only lets you have 6 photos up. This is too small. You have to delete them to put up different ones.
- The game has rewards for posting over 100 pictures online. People find this annoying bc of the previous point.
- X beloved feature from the original is missing.
————————————
Personally I’m having a blast w the game. But I thrive playing grindy games so shrug.

That’s awesome. That’s genius to use a plant. Great idea for a hay ride where everyone is on the trailer together and sees it go down. I just dressed in a grim reaper costume and stepped out of a shadowy corner of a room when people would walk through, and chased them out. It was still a blast tho. Not my biggest pay check ever, but the most fun I’ve had earning one. TBH I would have done it for free

I think he’d be talking about a ton of games and a big variety of them if he reviewed games.

Back when I reviewed movies, I was talking about one or two new movies every week cuz I was constantly exposed to movies. Now I almost never talk about them. Rewatched My Cousin Vinny last night. The night before that, Million Dollar Baby

One of the most accurate lawyer movies and that's because Director Jonathan Lynn was/is an actual lawyer. Some law schools actually use this movie when teaching courtroom procedures.

I'm playing Hoi4 again and this time i'm south Africa and I'm gonna take over all of Africa. I also set it to have the USA attempt to take over the world, currently from what I can tell the USA is getting ready to invade Canada, meanwhile in Europe France declared war on Germany and there's a 3 way civil war in Spain.

The year is now 1941

so the loyalist lead by "dug out" Douglas MacArthur have taken over the US leaving the constitutionalist part of Panama, Mexico meanwhile is in it's own civil war between Catholic Mexico and Mexican Socialist who have been encircled by Catholic Mexico
Spoiler



While in other news, Europe is slowly falling to the Reich and Italy somehow took over over much of France other than Vichy France.
Spoiler


I'm not sure what's going on with Japan.


But I'm doing well in Africa, I have two puppet countrys,while i just took over Angola and i'm prepping for an airborne invasion of Madagascar, along with a tank invasion of Zaire.

I was complaining to my gf that I brought the wrong colour team to battle in a raid tournament in my phone game and she simply wrote back, “what an IDIOT”

Barney’s in love

so after putting in a total of 48 hrs into AC: Valhalla:

The map is still cluttered with no way to toggle stuff like GTA V's map, the RPG elements are light compared to other actual RPGs. The map again is large, but not as large and empty as past games. The settlement system/mechanic from AC:III in which it was called homestead is back, i never played 3,so I can't really tell you the differences very well. You gain mats for building your settlement up mainly through raids which quickly become repetitive as doe the alliance missions, which are: Do a quest chain that ends in an assault on a castle. I've only done one alliance quest chain that doesn't go the same way as the others so far.

It's very easy to quickly get to the point where you're able to basically tank everything so fights are basically just waiting for the right moment to attack.

I'm not sure how far in the story i am.

The big challenge of critiquing games I like is that people have a tendency towards false dichotomy. With that last post I was trying to say “I like this game and I think it did a [i]good enough[\i] job; but I think the game should be better than what we got due to some egregious design decisions.” I wanted to voice some complaints into the semi-void without coming across as purely negative complaining; so the “review” post was the best format I came up with on short notice.

I am not positive enough nor do I have the vocabulary necessary to be a game reviewer. I think you are reading too much into an attempt at improving the quality of my standard bitching.

I’ve also previously told you my general salary range; and game reviewers don’t make that much.

————————-

While we are voicing my opinions on games; Returnal is a decent rogue-like with one fatal flaw: runs are too damn long with no intentional way to pause.

The game fundamentally needs a temporary quicksave system of some sort to let the player pause a run.
