My Coalesced.ini from ME2 that I backed up in December is causing problems so I'm going to have to do all my mod's all over again. The multiple armor color choice one isn't a problem but fixing the Depth of field and optimizing it are the one's that take longer.

Jamie got me the the Pandemic expansion for Valentine's Day and all it does is make a hard game harder!

(I still love it, though.)

It doesn't it also add a traitor role?


My nerd world problem: Yesterday my game store was holding an auction for used games. I let a Descent set go for $39. I wish I stayed on it all the way to $50.

It does, but it's a modular expansion so I have yet to play with the bio-terrorist rules. We tried the virulent strains (alternate epidemic cards) and with the extra role cards. It was fun, but adding a fifth player really ramps the difficulty.

Was the pokemon a mareep? If you are dreaming of Catherine and sheep pokemon, you are in trouble.

OK here's how it went down: All my actions in the dream were being narrated/commented on by two voices from Catherine, the neutral female narrator (the one that says "Edge" and tells you not to die and announces the Babel levels) and the final boss. The standard Catherine boss music was also playing ridiculously loud for a lot of the dream.
There were pokemon involved but the only ones I clearly remember were Magnetites and Magnetons, because in the last part of the dream I was navigating through a giant maze of interlocking Magnetites and Magnetons. These all looked like cartoony 3D graphics, there was no definite ceiling or floor to the maze (I may have been floating), and everything that wasn't a Magnetite was flat glowy surfaceless white. It was a very "sucked into the game" feeling.
And I was navigating through the entire dream by slashing my hands in different directions as if I was playing Fruit Ninja on Kinect. I clearly remember another part of the dream that was entirely dark and silent except for the Catherine boss threatening me and glowing green stars bouncing upward into my field of vision, and I couldn't proceed until I hit enough green stars in a row.

I've actually been playing video games less than usual recently -- maybe I'm going into withdrawal?

My best friend DID warn me that if I didn't play more multiplayer with him, the Reapers win.

I don't have an active XBox Live account so I can't transfer my three saved ME1&2 games to the new Cloud thing.

I also don't have anyone to play Magic with right now and I'm wanting to stretch the legs of my new geist deck a bit more.

Oracle of Seasons/Ages really needs to come out on 3DS VC.
PS: I was on hold with western digital trying to cancel an RMA, and my connection dropped, and now I am on hold. They close at 9PMCST. Welp.

I haven't had a chance to play it much in a week or more and weekends are usually out for me, so I'm not even at the level cap yet! Take your time!

My problem: Magic the Gathering is a much better TCG than Pokemon, but the guys I play Magic with are a little flaky and incommunicative and the guy I know who plays Pokemon is a super rad guy so I'm playing a game I like less in exchange for more fun which is weird.

Is there a word for that? It could be the Landmine Paradox for all I know, considering all the Call of Cthulhu campaigns I've started building only to abandom them because everyone I know wants to play WoD or something
PS: I don't remember how many times buddy had to tell me I couldn't play cards after my attack or during his turn in Pokemon

I have lost money in poker because there was no second main phase.

"So I can't disrupt your board by surprise during your turn? I can't kill your dude before you even get a chance to attack? Well, shit, dude, how am I supposed to keep you from having fun, then? I don't get this game."

I have the game, but can't play because I have no internet, so I'll join the latecomer party. However, at this point I probably won't get internet until I get a better paying job and move out...

I accidentally spoiled Portal 2 for myself because I was reading a wiki entry about Wheatley.
