Just had a bunch of friends explain to me lots of different ways to "get better" at different gaming genres. Training exercises. Routines. Some of which are adopted from Pro League gaming coaches. I'll still play Overwatch on occasion but basically I think any game with a competitive multiplayer design as it's core is basically just going to be inaccessible to me. Although I'd been kind of leaning towards this decision anyway. For example I watched some Wacky Jacky streams of PUBG and then watched a bit of the Overwatch League and it's just like... like I get that for the most part I'm not going to ever end up in a game with anyone that good but the average skills in games like this go up over time the longer the game exists. Which is partially encouraged in part by the loot box daily quest so now I just see it less about making a fun game and more about aggregating your attention span over time. Eh. It's really late I should have gone to bed awhile ago.

Wrote up a report of a customer complaint that turned into a letter of recommendation of the merits of my coworkers. Because I might be an asshole, but I'll be damned if I'm not an honest asshole. It would have been so easy and felt entirely appropriate to lose our patience with this individual but we did not; to then have his mother...

You Should Hate How Arranged Marriages Are Accepted As Fate. What with all this talk of rapists and human trafficking ... with an awful lot of scapegoating of the social issues that are a part of modern American as somehow having an external cause or source brings to an old set list. I've updated it. It's ... almost blunt enough that I wonder if it...

I'll try to think of some way to verify this through third party sources.

It's raaaaaiiiiiining. So it's probably just going to be a game day today. Maybe I'll clean my room a bit. But I've been messing around trying to get Dead Cells to stream on my twitch. I don't think it's working and I don't have a camera set up. I'm not sure that the stream from Steam to...

Oh. Right. I wouldn't worry about following me I'm not a regular streamer... 9EyedNingauble.

I got it working. If I do start to stream regularly I'll let you know. Dead cells has some ridiculous streamer participation options which I'll probably turn on. I... I'm not sure about captain chicken though. I might agree to always take the mutagen mod where you can't heal from food and only have the potion available. But part of what I love about Dead Cells is the ability to make smaller errors and not instantly lose a run. Too many rogue likes are one mistake results in run fail. It'd also be different if I wasn't starting the game over from scratch post - launch.
