Discovered I could get Monument Valley for free through Amazon Underground this morning. Went on to finish the game.

Got the DLC expansion too. Maybe I'll actually play it since the main game only took a couple hours.

Chewing my way through the purloined copy of Day of the Tentacle. I am reminded of why these games died out.

Just solved the final puzzle in Picross 3D 2. There are the Amiibo puzzles but I don't think I have any figures that would unlock them.

Watch dogs 2 is on the list now. Quite a change from the last two survival horror games. Everything is neon and bright as opposed to dank and dark.

I loved Monument Valley. I may have to grab the DLC.

Went ahead and finished ICO as well. In no small part because it didn't let me save for like the last hour of the game. Satisfying despite the frustrations. Can't hold a candle to Shadow of the Colossus.

I finally have all of my tax papers in. My business wasn't exactly a roaring success (about 2/3 of my income, there, came from just one contract), so I think it might be time to wrap up loose ends and close it down. Between my education and my other jobs, I don't really have the time for it, so at least I can not have to worry about all the little stuff that comes with it.

I fired up Witcher 2 last night and it started to sink its claws into me. I'll likely spend most of my gaming time this weekend getting into it.

Castlemark Tower in FFXV reminded me why I dislike action RGP's. I hate oddball camera angles. It also reminded me why I get tired of a FF game before completing them. Long dungeons with no save point. It wears me out and becomes less fun.

I haven't had as much time for gaming as I thought I would this weekend. However, I did do some gaming of the non-digital variety last night at the chili cookoff. Superfight and Blood Rage, both a lot of fun. I especially enjoyed the latter even thought it took us several hours...partially because I am so slow at making decisions in games like that. I also ate some really good chili.

Today I picked up a chair at IKEA for my "projects" desk so I can do puzzles, play with LEGOs, etc. Chris and I also went to the Mall of America for a bit. That place is scary. I bought some cute little Japanese candies (Konpeitō) but otherwise avoided spending any money. We stumbled across this awesome store called Box Lunch that had a ton of geeky stuff. Nintendo, Pokemon, Studio Ghibli, Marvel & DC, etc. Lots of shirts, figurines, plushies, and a whole lot else. I already have one Ghibli shirt but would really like another. They had one that I loved but not in my size, sadly, so I may see if I can order it online. Thankfully the store is in MOA which I generally avoid like the plague, so I won't be tempted to go there too often.

Tried out Datura, a PS+ game from a few month back. I was surprised when the game started up and I was presented with a disembodied hand to control. It was awkward, but I managed. I proceed to see some reasonably interesting things and solve some simple puzzles. It keeps throwing these awful motion controls at me, but they are simple enough eventually.

Until I am given a crowbar and expected to use tilts of the controller to pry away three boards. After floundering for five minutes with the crowbar like a man trying to wield a live mackerel with chopsticks, I decided maybe this isn't the game for me.

And just now I tried Tower of Guns. It seems like it would be a TON of fun with a mouse and keyboard. I'll probably never play it again.

My grandmother passed away today. She was 93. She's been in poor health for some time, it didn't come as a shock. I was pretty close with my grandparents, I grew up with them next door almost all my life. From birth until I was 27, I had my grandmother next door (my grandfather passed when I was 23). When I moved back home in my 30s, there was my grandmother again. I always remained close, she was someone who didn't like most people, including family. I was considered her favorite, not matter what I did, I was always the first grandchild. I'm going to miss her.

Sorry to hear that Purps.

Hmm. My wife's grandmother also passed away today. She was 93 too. Are we related by marriage?

Sorry for your loss, Purps. That would be very tough. Growing up I had three sets of grandparents due to divorce. Now only two of my grandmothers remain. Losing them is very hard. *hug*

I do remember hearing about a part of my family that escaped to Canada. Hmmm...

Sorry for your loss, Santa. And yours, too, Spigot (assuming that wasn't a joke).
