Today at lunch I learned that Pieces Interactive have a counter for the number of days since someone complained about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I take full responsibility for this transgression and my name is now a warning to others. Still, i give no quarter on the subject itself, SW:TLJ is garbage and the new hope is still that Disney fire all copies of it into the sun.
‘Number of days without SW-TLJ mentioned’
I looked at star wars the last jedi this weekend. Most of it was spent waiting for it to end as the cascade of bad writing and mishandling of characters and setting got more painful each minute. I’m not looking forward to the next part :|.
Played some Factorio this weekend. It was nice and i recommend it to anyone that wish to to move things around on a transport belt.
So I’ll celebrate International Women’s Day by listing some games to play today with a female character in the lead role.
Metroid Prime: Trilogy with Samus Aran
All the three Metroid Prime games for the Wii. You can also download it on the WiiU if you are one of the few that own it.
Tomb Raider: Anniversary with Lara Croft
Raid some tombs and stea… rescue all the artifacts. The first game might be a bit hard with the ancient controls so try the remake.
BloodRayne with Rayne
Stab away at Nazis and suck the blood from them.
Portal 2 with Chell
Fun followup on portal.
Dishonored: Death of the outsider with Billie Lurk
Stab away and try to kill the trickster god.
The soundtrack for Titan Quest: Ragnarök is now on steam. The music to code to tomorrow for me .
The most basic things are now done in my new home. It is possible to walk from one room to another without climbing over things. Time to playing games and coding again. I also think about giving courses on how to get rid of sales people that call your phone. This is the first lesson. Works great all the time.
Sales: Hello, I’m John Doe and I’m calling you with this offer that will let you lower the cost of all your loans from any bank…
Scubes: I’m not at all interested in any shape or form.
Sales: But don’t you want to lower the fee that you have to pay to your bank.
Scubes: No, i like it when it is expensive, it turns me on, it’s a sexual thing, look it up on the internet, real sick shit. It’s how i roll.
Scubes: Goodbye then, please do not call me again.
Sales: Goo … dbye.
The plan was to start coding today. Computer setup done, shelf full of geek books and almost possible to breathe the air full of paint. It fell apart from me getting sick and now i mostly eat painkillers. If this headache fade a little I’ll try to play some games and if it fade more I’ll try to get some coding done. Have to look into using the FBX SDK for an FBX exporter.
Worst part is that i have to escape my home tomorrow to avoid the last of the fresh paint. Se if i can find people i dislike in the city and stalk them to make them sick or something.
The smell of paint is strong in my home so instead of coding I spent the time in the bathtub. Some people solve problems for kings in the bathtub, I start to wonder how much of a bookshelf my geek books would fill. Time well spent. Now I feel the need to buy more books to fill all of it. Don’t worry if you plan to get into game development, you do not need to read that many books. Gamedev is easy, the free floating of the mind in the bathtub is hard.
All the books about AI did not make me smart enough to avoid buying two of AI Game Programming Wisdom.
Still hard to walk around in my new home. Tomorrow a painter will show up and paint two of my rooms so i need to keep them empty. My geek room is less geek and more stuffed to the roof with things. Will end the day with some fallout 4 and then sleep. The painter, like all craftspeople, enjoy showing up 2 hours before any sane person get out of bed. I’m sure they bring a power tool to use until i leave .
Yes, i need a reminder what i was doing last time i played this. Quest log, show me the way.
