Wire her just enough money for a hacksaw.

Hacksaw was the first that came to mind for me. Bolt cutters would probably be a lot nicer, though!

Nah. She needs to work for it. An afternoon with the hacksaw and she'll have a good workout and learn a valuable lesson.

It's a good thing her only access to money is if I wire it to her.

I started up New Super Marion Brothers 2 the other day and am absolutely loving it. I'm gonna continue playing that this weekend as well as binge some Sopranos, do some reading and watch some March Madness games.

Gaming in short bursts on the 3DS has gotten me back into gaming as of late. And I find those short bursts to be increasing in quantity as of late.

Played more PG4 last night, if I wasn't seeing why everyone who played this game already said all these years "you need to play" well last night I certainly understood. I'm not going to say I never talk to my tv when I play a game, but last night it was truly a WTF?! moment. I'm in December for those who have played the game. Yeah, that moment. Of course I realize this may be the moment where if you don't do stuff right you get the bad ending(s). Seeing the message you may want to save here because insane stuff happens ahead was a good hint. After hitting the next save spot where in-between was about 20 minutes of insane cut scene plot moving dialog, I checked around to see if indeed that was a point where the game could end. I remember vaguely when others have played someone talked about December. I know P3 had a similar moment but couldn't remember when. I must have done enough to avoid the bad ending, there are 4 of them. I watched them. They went from gut wrenching sad to absolutely creepy disturbing. The best bad ending was the one that tied it into P3. That one was also the creepiest. Watching the endings though gives the plot twist away though, but I already knew it. I unfortunately believed I would never play P4 so I looked at who the real killer was years ago. No matter, still loving the game. I am really glad I finally decided to play this game and hopefully soon finish.

About six episodes in to Iron Fist. So far the fight choreography was much better in daredevil but it's a decent enough show.

Like the other marvel Netflix series it seems to delight in giving you as little backstory as possible until absolutely necessary, which always struck me as odd given the first season is an origin story.

Beat Shovel Knight last night. Quite a challenge, but not insane. Very fun and satisfying.

Started up the Plague Knight expansion. That will definitely take some getting used to. Hopefully his various upgrades makes him easier to move around.

Checking out Steep before going into work this morning. I like it except the Gforce meter, which I don't even really understand beyond hating it with every fiber of my being.

WeekEND gaming (3.17.17)- What are YOU playing?

I tried the free weekend of Steep they had last weekend. It was pretty cool, but not something I'll drop cash on until it's much cheaper.

I'm seeing Hamilton today!! I'm v. excited.

Just watched the first episode of Iron Fist. It was fine but i can see why some people hate the guy playing Danny Rand. I remember Daredevil taking a few episodes to really click for me.

About to start cleaning up the house and getting things ready for my boardgame party tonight. Woo.

Ever end up at a dance club and just think: "I shaved my Dick for this?"

The little bit I played was pretty awesome, once I got used to how everything worked. Definitely looking forward to playing more.

Strangely enough, yes. Only once though.

Have fun at Hamilton, Pom! I must say I'm a little envious. Some friends and I talked about going to Chicago to see it, but we ended up not doing so. I somewhat regret that now.

Um...no.

I did do some dancing like night when we went out for Saint Patrick's Day. The concert was fantastic (we went for the opener, left right before the headliner, haha), and afterward we went to a few bars. All way too crowded, as expected. I also drank a little too much, as expected, and I am regretting so today. It's really not fair though, as Chris drank far more than I did, felt awful last night, but feels fine today. Oh, to be young again.

I also tried VR for the first time today. I played a bit of RE7 on the PS4. It was pretty neat! Way cooler than I expected, although the resolution is atrocious and made it look like a 3DS game. I didn't expect it to be so immersive, although that was somewhat broken whenever I tried to reach out and touch something. I'm honestly tempted to get a Vive now, but man are they expensive.

I don't find the shaving to be disturbing, its all the dancing going on that is disturbing.
