Wizardry VII was fun, I feel like such a dumbass leaving the save I had going (plus my portrait edits) on my old laptop.

I just love that the Priest is named Frieth.  It looks good in fixed-width font.
also "jetlagging" back 5 hours is so weird, even the next day.  I should really go to sleep 15 minutes ago so I don't get weirdly emotional at people again tomorrow.
While sober!  And in person!  Why do people share such raw emotions in actual proximity?  It was weird.
...
I missed the supermoon eclipse.  I was awake, but I was waiting on someone else to get ready - a very ironic reversal, for me.  (it was well below our treeline anyway)
I saw two pretty dawns, though, even through the trees.  Largely due to the trees, proud spires in parallax. 
Change is invigorating.  And life is so exhausting.

Some of my friends not only can't drive a stick, but didn't have their social security number drilled into their memory at an early age?
I kinda wonder if this influenced my opinion of illegal immigration.

Uru was a MMO puzzle game in the Myst canon, and somehow wasn't bad.  I have experienced such wonders, with presumably more to come.

The high speed line is for brain scans, not rocket-riding magical girls

Did you say rocket sled riding magical girls?
Spoiler: Not just in Japan (click to show/hide)

Wizardry VII looks a lot like Might and Magic 3/4/5. Even the somewhat goofy names for party members.

Wizardry, The Bards Tale, and Might And Magic were the Big Three in first-person turn-based dungeon crawlers back in the day. The Bard's Tale series died a quiet and mostly-unlamented death after the third game, while the other two continued to compete until M&M started to suck and Wizardry moved to Japan.

It's funny that The Bard's Tale was supposed to be called "Tales of the Unknown, volume 1: The Bard's Tale". e.g. it was only meant to be the subtitle for the first game, not the actual name of the series. So the plan was probably that any sequels would be like "tales of the unknown, volume 2: The Knight's tale" etc etc.

But then everyone just shortened that to "The Bard's Tale" so they stuck with that for marketing reasons.

I was kinda sad to see Sirtech (the people that made the wizardry series) go poof after wiz8.

while it was a bit behind the times in technology and eyecandy for the era it came out, it is a pretty solid game. I've been playing it on my converted chromebook to  my great personal enjoyment. (the GOG version does well with WINE)

I heard that there was a "wizardry online" that came out recently, but I stay away from MMORPGs.

Oh god, Vegans are going Antifa in Australia and storming restaurants to shame the meat eaters, with a promise to ramp it up until they stop all the bad people eating

Wizardry's not dead. Wizardry 8 was the last Sirtech game, but there's been something like forty Wizardry games made in Japan, although only 4 (Wizardry: Tale of the Forsaken Land, Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls, Wizardry Online and Wizrogue: Labyrinth of Wizardry) have English releases. There's probably fan translations for at least some of the rest.

That's pretty awesome! :D
Certainly seems a lot more effective than most of the protest methods I've seen (seriously, staging a peaceful hunger strike outside a slaughterhouse? Wtf is that going to achieve?). I can't help being annoyed by your antifa comparison, though...

That is an amazing name for a game.

Those look like PETA activists, not activists against eating meat.

Not into steak myself though, and no it's not because morals or being vegan or anything.

It's also trespassing, but Australia is a third-world country where the law no longer functions
