Pet death 

Pinned toot

Went and laid down on the couch this morning, and Smokey, one of my dogs, jumped up by my chest, snuggled up to me, and went to sleep. Woke up hugging the dog and opened my eyes to find that Bandit, her sister, was now sleeping there and Smokey had wrapped herself up in the blanket on the floor near my feet at the far end of the couch.

Phew, the walk to the grocery store wasn't as bad as I expected. Got there, dropped the Blu-ray in the Redbox, and then turned to leave and noticed someone had dumped a huge amount of ice in a planter under one of the trees in the parking lot, so I grabbed a few ice cubes off the top to help keep cool.

Game designers should absolutely hold ethical stances, but they should also simply avoid unwittingly reproducing design patterns that, in the end, psychologically exhaust people.

Most importantly, triage skill is tied to individual psychological factors that game designers tend to only think about in exploitative ways - how to make players constantly want more, consume more, pay more in the case of F2P - and this is why inventory management so often becomes a chore. Players that aren't prone to hoarding / triage decision paralysis end up in a different, far more enjoyable game.

a thought on inventory management in games:
Most games with Stuff in them, and an Inventory you can put the stuff into, implicitly encourage players to put up almost everything they can. There are various ways you can fight this but it's kinda part of the territory.
"Developing an effective system for deciding what to keep and what not to keep" is a player skill that varies a lot across your audience, and it's way less obvious than eg player manual dexterity. But it's super significant.

Sounds like the Evo after-party was a mess.

If you are friends with a piece of shit who assaults women, you are a piece of shit by association.

Don't tolerate shit dudes. Don't play games with them. Don't carpool, don't share hotel rooms, don't get them in the group chat.

Even if we reach the ideal scenario where there is robust public transit, and where required, driverless cars that are also publicly owned, we’re gonna have to hire jizz moppers for the cars y’all that’s just facts
