Gaming today has consisted of some Witcher 2, lots of Steamworld: Heist & a chapter or two of Ryse.

And taking care of my son, who came home from his camp puking his brains out and sleeping all day.

You or your wife's side vomiters or something? Your kids get sick, they are vomiting. I don't mean it as being insensitive (which I may be, so apologies) just morbidly curious about your kids puking

I fired up Pushmo last night for a bit. I solved the puzzle that had stumped me a couple of days ago, but then I was immediately stumped by the next puzzle. They are getting hard! The solution came to me as I was laying in bed later, so I'll be able to get past it tonight. I love it when that happens.

I also made a fair amount of progress in Fire Emblem Heroes. I still feel a little lost in that game, but it's fun to play a little every day. Someday I'll figure it all out.

I took yesterday off since the kids were off school, so hooray for a short week!

Gravity Rush 2 I'm getting close to the end of the game and man, GR2 has really impressed. It's huge. I simply adore the world it's in, it's one of those few game worlds that feels so well visually realized that I'd love to just visit.

DanganRonpa: AEUDG This game is nuts in such a good way. It's not the best 3rd person shooter out there, but it's just silly and great. Love it.

Final Fantasy XIV Probably just weekly stuff, the above two games are dominating my game time.

Yeah. They seem to go from zero to Linda Blair with very little in between.

As I just said so eloquently in last week's thread,

Holy hell, what a start to my week today is. Can I go back on medical leave?

XCOM2 is done. I really wasn't impressed with the last mission - it was a bit too heavy on the 'torrent of enemies' principle.

Final soldier roundup (pre last mission):

*Colonel Spigot - Sharpshooter 6, Leader 2 - 23 Missions, 41 Kills
Colonel Purple Santa - Ranger 6 - 18 Missions, 33 Kills
Colonel VerseD - Specialist 6 - 25 Missions, 43 Kills
Colonel Magnome - Grenadier 6 - 21 Missions, 47 Kills
Colonel TheKeck - Sharpshooter 6 - 28 Missions, 45 Kills
Colonel Maharahaj - Grenadier 6 - 24 Missions, 31 Kills
*Colonel Biosc1 - Specialist 6 - 25 Missions, 38 Kills
Colonel Dav Slinker - Ranger 6 - 17 Missions, 35 Kills
*Colonel LarsenNET - Ranger 6 - 26 Missions, 36 Kills
*Colonel Ink Asylum - Grenadier 6 - 21 Missions, 36 Kills
*Champion Crittias - Spark 6, Leader 2 - 20 Missions, 60 Kills
*Magus Gorvi - Psi Operative 12 - 12 Missions, 15 Kills
Acolyte GenAXBY - Psi Operative 1 - Never Left Training

Honerable Mentions:
Lily Shen, Specialist 12
Bradford, Ranger 12
*The Commander, Psi Op 6(?)

Those denoted with an asterisk were on the final mission.

Posted this in the wrong week/day thread, reposting here:

That girl I've mentioned previously broke up with her boyfriend. It's her first breakup and she has clinically relevant depression and anxiety, and she has basically nobody else to talk to, so I've been doing some heavy consoling. Shit's hard enough without depression thrown in.

Not gonna lie, a big part of me wanted them to not be dating, but shit... not like this.

I'm just drained. Constantly worried about her while trying to maintain healthy boundaries for my own mental state. I definitely don't need the complication but you don't get to choose the people who need your help, right?

Like Pom said, it is her responsibility to care for herself. If you can help her and choose to do so that is a very nice/good thing, but not something you should feel obligated to do. Plus, no matter your intentions you cannot predict where this might lead. From experience trying to help depressed and distressed people before, you may only complicate things for yourself while doing nothing helpful for the other. Even worse the person may not be ready to help themselves and you could get taken advantage of. You never really know, tough situation.

Those are fair points. But it's off my plate for a bit, she's going to visit her folks out of country for a while. So that is kind of a relief.

That indie show looks wild, by the way! I really need to try to get out to some of the local shows near me. Santino has a gym in Mississauga where they do shows every month or two.
Those are perfect seats. The only way it could be better is if they were camera-side so people will actually see your signs.

I highly recommend supporting your local indies. It's great being able to chant and boo, cheer and heckle with fellow wrestling nerds, and the more fans, the better. The wrestlers will regularly join in on the banter, often with hilarious results (Joey Ryan sold the lollipop he kept in his trunks to a fan for $80 a couple of shows ago, then stuffed the lollipop in the dude's mouth).

This is good advice Dav. I know you are in a difficult situation, but there needs to be appropriate boundaries on both sides of this friendship. It is fine that you listen and your friend talks to you since that is what friends are for. However, there gets to be that point where you may need to state "this seems better if you spoke to a professional". She's not going to respect that boundary I am guessing, but I suggest you remain firm on that.

I've spent more time with Mafia 3, it seems to be the perfect grieving tool to help me with the loss of my grandmother. Nothing like a good killing spree with all the chaos of an open world game to relieve one of life stress. I don't know how far I am in the game, all I know if you do the optional missions, this game is long. I've maxed out Vito's perks, I now am trying to divvy up the rest of the districts between Burke and Cassandra.

Chris came over tonight. We cooked dinner (chicken-stuffed tortellini with a sundried tomato alfredo sauce and garlic toast) and then played about an hour and a half of The Journey Down Chapter Two. It's good so far. We'll pick it up again this weekend.

Man I am tired. I've been tired all week, in fact, despite getting a little more sleep than usual. I think it's the weather, which has been up and down all winter.

Edit - I forgot to mention that previously with the Steam Link we had experienced quite a few frame drops. I ordered an ethernet cable and after hardwiring the Link to my router it ran flawlessly. Yay!

You also have the second best mission:kills ratio, and the best numbers of all the humans - Crittias' was a Spark MEC.

Crittias' numbers are inflated because I did the Shen DLC early, and I was lucky and got a good AoE cone weapon for it right off. It was too tempting and easy to solve problems with a 'blow up EVERYTHING' gun.

I'm just amazed I survived and didn't get the whole team killed. My real life leadership stuff today has been less impressive.

Nothing like starting your day at 7:30am and not getting home until 10:45pm... especially when the longest day you've worked in over a month was about 6 hours.

Time to crash now. Ace Attorney is calling to me.

Dammit Mags, at least Crittias has the advantage of being an emotionless machine, what's your excuse?
