Got my random shirt from Woot! in the mail today. It's this one. I am pleased.

I am also sick of Monopoly. It makes me inexplicably sad, to the point where I deliberately made a dumb deal than cost me a guaranteed victory because I didn't want to spend an hour just bleeding people dry. I'm voting for Clue next time. Or Cards Against Humanity. No more Monopoly. Harumph.

So I hit Week 2 in TWEWY (and can I just say how phenomenal this port is? High price be damned; if you own an iPhone, you should own this game), and I couldn't help taking some screencaps...



Man, I love Joshua.

So! Guess what game got an iPhone port?



Oh baby.

It's $18, which gave me pause for about five minutes. Really, it's one of my all-time favorites; how could I resist? They revamped the battle system to work on one screen, and this might be sacrilegious, but I'm not sure which version I like better. It's just that good. Mingling's going to be a bit more troublesome this time around, but that should only bother psycho completionists like me, really. All in all, it's pretty epic. And fun. Obscene levels of fun. Damn, TWEWY's still good.

$18, though. Seriously, Square? You couldn't have scraped that down to $10? At a lower price point, I'd talk everyone I know into buying it, but when you're dancing near $20... phew. That's a hard sell.

Holy crap, you guys. I made a Kane/Toews rec list. And it is HUGE.

Speaking of pairings I'm way too invested in, I encountered a Skyrim glitch the other day that actually worked in my favor. Many of the NPCs you meet in Skyrim you can marry if you're wearing the proper amulet and they're friends with you. For most of them, building a friendship is as easy as completing a quest related to them. The one character I had my eye on for a hubby, Quintus Navale, has two quests connected to him. I don't know why, but at some point I decided he was absolutely the one and only true love of my character. So when the game appeared to have glitched me out of obtaining his second quest (and thus removing my chance of marrying him), I was heartbroken.

I kept playing, though, and I bought a level-up perk that lets you invest in shops. Since Quintus is a shopkeeper, I figured I could at the very least show my platonic support of him. After I handed over 500 gold, though, a funny thing happened. I'd been wearing my Amulet of Mara for a while, just to see which characters were interested in me, and suddenly Quintus was one of them. Without ever getting his second quest. I don't know what flag got flipped incorrectly in the game or how, but investing in the shop turned him into a marriage prospect.

So I said I liked him. And we got married. And he's living in my house in Riften.

Seriously, I can't count the number of times I've had to reset because I sank into a mountain or a key item was knocked irretrievably behind a table or a quest item got stuck in my inventory... actually, that one's usually not fixable with resetting. I'm stuck with Finn's Lute and Pantea's Flute forever, it seems. Anyway, the point is, I'd never encountered a glitch I liked. Finally, the game's bugginess worked in my favor.

And yes, this means Nurelion's death never happened. He's still "asleep and dying" in The White Phial, while Quintus is baking me apple pies in Honeyside. Love it.

... I actually came close to crying with joy when I got to marry Quintus. I mean, I've sunk over 200 hours into my main character, and I'd been hoping to marry him for at least 150 of those. So. Happy.

In honor of [livejournal.com profile] jengeorge (and because I haven't exactly been a bundle of joy lately), this is an unabashedly, unreservedly, undeniably happy post! I'll start things off:

1) This season of RuPaul's Drag Race is streamable on Logo's site.
2) Bye bye, Prop 8!
3) I did quick scribbles last night of some of my favorite pairings being kissy-cute! )

And now it's your turn - comment here with anything and everything happy you can think of. This is a place for the most redonkculous adorable you can muster. Let's just be frivolous for a day and love everything and everyone!

Plan: Skip Skyrim in favor of crafting.
Result: Play Skyrim until 2am.

Damn. That game is fun.

This is awesome. My biggest problem at the moment is deciding what game I should play: Bioshock, No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise, or Brutal Legend. I could also go for more endings on Catherine, or do a fourth playthrough of Persona 4. Or a sixth playthrough of FFVIII. Or a... fifteenth playthrough of Symphony of the Night. Decisions, decisions.

I'm focusing on the games because after Thanksgiving my best friend from high school is coming to town and I'm both nervous and excited. Honestly, I'm equal parts horrified for her to see who I am now and psyched that I get to see her again. Video games are so much easier to think about.

Unless they're Killer7. That game is bananas.
