Finally, the holidays are over and I am dog tired. I just got some rough news about permanent damage to my ankle and possibly right wrist Thank god that left-handedness is actually the majority in my family. . It’s a lot of stupid bitching and moaning but TLDR; I’m cranky. I swear every time I complain I can almost hear my dad saying exactly the same thing, in the same tone, and with the same candor. Complaining but with enough humor to make sure no one else is uncomfortable. Jeez, I miss that guy, having annoying health issues just makes it more prominent; we always complained together. It wasn’t ever bitter or angry just…almost laughing at the audacity of the universe. I inherited so many of his health issues, it was something to bond about. In hindsight, I think it ripped him apart that he had any hand in passing on that lot in life, but he never let that be the focus of things. He could have so easily made every interaction about my health a pity party, and I’d have stopped telling him about it. But…he didn’t, we just laughed. I’m really, really grateful for that.
I am meaning to sit down and write a Sims 4 Overthinking post, but honestly, I don’t have it in me. Some weeks are super easy, I love writing, I love the Sims, I love this site, I always have. But…some weeks not so much. I went through Steam Rewind on what has become my steam account but used to be dads, ouch, oops, yeah that might be why I don’t have the heart to talk about virtual plumbing right now.
How were your holidays? Or, if you don’t celebrate any, how were your last 3-4 weeks? I don’t always have the energy to reply to comments right now, but I read all of them. The community here helps, a lot. Thanks for sticking around.
Ha. The whole post isn’t on the front page. See? There’s this little footnote to prove it.

Crysis 2 has basically the same plot as Half-Life 2. So why is one a classic and the other simply obnoxious and tiresome?

Here's how this site grew from short essays to novel-length quasi-analytical retrospectives.
There's a wonderful way to balance difficulty in RPGs, and designers try to prevent it. For some reason.

A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?
