Exile

Gavin came up with AirDND at lunch, and it was too good to leave on the table.  Utilizing long-forgetten alchemical techniques, including those we have transmuted this notion into a comic strip.

I feel like I’m too new at Destiny to tell you anything of import about the new expansion; I’ve had a few lucky Crota drops, that’s the extent of my career as a Guardian.  I’m the inheritor of all the creature comforts and improvements you and Gabriel had to suffer through, I never knew the worst of it.  I know that when the game first came out, if you died while in a Darkness Zone not only did you have to restart from the checkpoint, you were also forced to order off the kid’s menu.  It’s terrifying stuff.

No, all I have now is that relentless, smooth loop, of which the Prison of Elders is a good example - and between the novel loot structure and the round modifiers it’s filling a very specific role in the experience.  I keep trying to sell my compatriots on Trials of Osiris, but they’re not super into the PVP, which I kind of get.  I’m not super into the PVP either.  But I am into gambling.

What House of Wolves means primarily is that I haven’t gotten more than twenty consecutive minutes into The Witcher 3.  I’m missing out on all the fun!  I have read a lot about sub-par foliage, including CD Projekt RED’s thoroughly human response to it.  Judging from the scores, the game is apparently cool even in the presence of these lackadaisical shrubs.  But… I did essentially put another computer’s worth of parts inside my computer to play this.  I’m trying to figure out if that makes me dumb, or if there’s some way I can blame them for this.  They’ll have a much easier time when they use this engine for Cyberpunk 2077, no doubt; in the grim darkness of the far future, nobody can afford decorative plants.

That said, I haven’t even had to opportunity to scoff at some less than ideal sunflowers.  I’ve been waiting for it a long time, so much time that I’ve become very good at waiting for it.  Now it’s like I need the mood to be right, just right; candles and shit.  I have felt like this before, that there was some proper celestial configuration which must act as a prerequisite, and I can tell you where that policy has lead previously: it leads to a universe where I never actually play the game in question.  I can’t let that happen this time.
