1243 Menace.


I’m still on the road. When I get back I’ll give you a report.

Today we all went to wish my grandfather a happy birthday. It was all the degrees outside and many of them managed to infiltrate my grandparent’s house. In spite of this, and having taken an allergy pill that made me very sleepy, we managed to get the job done. We also returned Rainbow Dash to her natural environment. So that’s where I was returning from when the comic went up.

A few words about Mario Kart 8: it is exactly like other Mario Karts except for being uncommonly beautiful. It is seriously one of the prettiest games I’ve ever seen, even over AV cables. It must be stunning in HD. They also came up with a blue shell defense item. EVERYTHING IS FIXED.

State Of Decay: Lifeline is very intense. The time limits for missions are extremely short. You have to pick and choose how to spend your time wisely. Every few minutes zombies assault your base and you have to actively defend it. I’ve almost never had a character die in any other State Of Decay mode that wasn’t on purpose. I lost my CO in the first siege. Lack of experience cost me big time. I went in to the game knowing that this would be a possibility so I made a point not to get too attached to anyone. Still, she was a badass, and it sucked. She went down defending someone from a big boy. I just couldn’t get there fast enough. I’ve lost a man in every other siege, and not the ones I keep hoping will die. The drunk who I can’t take on missions makes it through every time, but the capable people are getting mown down like so much lawn fodder. Anyway, it’s well worth the $7 if you have an Xbox or PC. (At least I think it’s on steam or something.)
