Time Event
Pardon me, but would you have any #@$^& SAVE POINTS?
I started playing Grandia Xtreme tonight... boy, was that a mistake.

Not that it's a bad game, but it took 3 HOURS to get to the first save point. I didn't want to spend 3 hours playing the game tonight. I wanted to spend about an hour and a half. And god forbid I might have screwed up and DIED... I probably would have returned the game on the spot. Who wants to replay 3 hours, including four or five tediously paced cut-scenes?

People. If you MUST have save points, they should pop up at least once every fifteen minutes or so. You want them *before* big boss battles where people might get killed, and both *before* and *after* long cut scenes that people don't want to see twice and might not feel like watching for a half hour before going to bed.


Current Mood: infuriated
The bond between a person and his pet cannot be broken by mere abandonment and neglect. My cat has followed me here to the Seattle area, warping the lives of my sister and her husband to do so, so that when he dies, his restless spirit can more easily haunt me.

I hate pets.

Current Mood: scared
Let Them Eat Cake
Today was a charity bake sale at work, and this year I made myself bid... I ended up buying a black forest cake for $80, which was the cheapest that anything sold for. Probably because (as I realized after buying it) it was covered in whipped cream frosting and didn't have a container, just a sheet of tinfoil that it sat on, which means getting it home could be a trial.

Of course, there's no way I'm going to be able to eat the entire cake, but I'm far too cheap to share it with anyone, at least unless they actually come ask, which no one's going to. Maybe I'll feed some of it to the squirrels. I like squirrels, and other urban animals -- coons, rats, crows...

After I blow up the environment and all of humanity, they'll be all that's left.

Current Mood: indifferent
