So far on Sims 2, my Sims are mad at me. There seems to always be something in their way when they try to do something, and I have trouble seeing what's in their thought bubble.

S'all good Darq! Guess I missed out on that one, oh wells.

stripey: That can be a problem. It usually takes me a lot of trial and error to get things arranged in a way that they can use them correctly. I've pretty much reached 'blatantly abuses cheat codes' level of Sims 2 play at this point. Ferinstance, I wanted an alien baby and I spent FOREVER getting my dude sim abducted, only for him to return traumatized and decidedly not pregnant. Boo. So I cheat coded it up and now I'm going to get his partner a personality change because he seems pretty thoroughly miserable over the baby and that just won't do.

as far as the wii u, I was checking amazon the other day and saw it for $210 shipped.

i remember trying to hawk one on ebay around launch, I paid $400 for that bitch and lost money.

Sims 2 kept loading FOR AGES on my computer which has windows 7 and isn't very old.

Once it got started, it went faster. It looks old (gah the blocky graphics) but it plays really nicely. My sister kept forgetting to clean the house and I was all "OMG THERE ARE FLIES EVERYWHERE" It's fun.

You realize it's a ten year old game, yeah?

Despite the knowledge my brain always needs to get used to old graphics.

I was actually kinda impressed with how the Sims 2 graphics have held up once I managed to get the resolution worked out. My graphics standards aren't very high, though.

In other news, I just got Shovel Knight to play in the laundromat. I keep hearing it's good.

If you've signed up for Club Nintendo, you can get Excite Bike and Super Mario Bros. 2 for 200, Star Fox 64 for 250: https://club.nintendo.com/rewards.do

Don't register you're stuff all at once, just enough to get the top club for a year. Very Happy

I still don't know whether I'm looking forward to Wasteland 2 (fully finished and released next month?) or not, yet.

On one hand, Fallout 1 and 2 are among the very few proper video games that have held my attention enough for me to bother playing through them.

On the other hand, I can't really get into managing an entire party. Brian Fargo is touting that as giving the game greater flexibility, but it seems like it could get really tedious and gives me unpleasant flashbacks to Fallout Tactics, which is a game which I most definitely could not get into. I also don't know whether I could bring myself to care about the actions of the characters the same way I could if I were playing as a single character.




__________

An unrelated quibble: it seems like my only recourse to people posting massive images on these shitty outdated phpbb2 forums is to block the images individually. Hrmph.

I made the mistake of starting up SWTOR again and I just want to set everything on fire because I will NEVER GET PAST THIS FUCKING BOSS OMG.

I'm resorting to -grinding- oh my god I hate grinding so much but I really want to know the end of this fucking storyline. *cries forever*
