Started a playthrough of Pillars of Eternity so I can eventually play Deadfire. Came across out monocle.
It's hard not too
Phone autocorrect strikes again.
Why is it called autocorrect when it only leaves mangled language in its wake?
Nope, just spazzy typing and negligence. I have a habit of confusing similar words when typing (is/if/in - can type them interchangeably, also things like the to, two and too too, even though there's no reason to put two or too in the place of "to" ever for most people, as was the case above). Similarly happens with concepts as well, things like I don't naturally know left from right (have to look for the L on my left hand), confuse knives with forks, dishwashers with washing machines, March and May, trains with buses, etc.
Probably some sort of mildly dyslexic tendency, as I know what I'm thinking about in these situations, but when the differences between concepts are arbitrary enough calling them by the correct word becomes slippery to me (i.e. I know the direction of left when I mean to travel there, but when people ask me things like, "Which way should I turn?", I have to think about what to tell them - because I don't naturally associate the word "left" to the concept).
And after that frightfully interesting aside, I bid you all Good Morning.
Fine. I have fat fingers. Are you happy now?
I didn't even see your autocorrect mistake and instead thought you were talking about my own, what a situation!
I saw both mistakes, but consider myself above such pettiness.
I can confirm that they are making a World of Darkness game. close to vampire, but they are early in development. Can't speak for how close it will be to Vampire though.
I was hoping to find a let's play of Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines where they had the rant by the doomsday tramp in Santa Monica, specifically going to a timestamp where he says, "I have seen the face of the Beast, and it is excited!"
Then I was going to say, "You can just call me the beast," in reaction to your news. Unfortunately the internet doesn't want me to be happy.
Still, that's good news! You said you had a relative working at Paradox or something a while back?
That to. I also have been on playtest and "storytest" (with NDA signed, so you can't prove anything), but I don't think they will announce this year. Playtest is not because of a relative, just because I live close to paradox and one can sign up to get surveys and playtest invites.
Hard boiled eggs are unbeatable.
Surely you jest. Scrambled eggs are far superior.
Come now sir, that is rubbish. Scrambled eggs is for the foreign constitution. Good day.
Gadzooks, I'm surrounded by fools. One should consume eggs only in their fried form to obtain peak sensations of both flavour and texture. Even the simplest half-blood knows this.
GAR NO LIKE GREEN TEA!
Mini minotaurs hate tartar sauce.
Caught part of an anti-Trump protest today, one of the placards said, "Makes Nixon look honest."
Having not heard that one before I thought it was good, just like this morning.
You caught me mid-edit, my lies are exposed! I should really getting round to reading the Watchmen graphic novel one of these days.
