The other day I finally broke down and bought a set of hex keys because the Teen was really annoyed that I hadn’t fixed her guitar controller. I didn’t get the kind I wanted because Wal-Mart doesn’t have nearly the range of items they once did, but I got a set that will get me by, and they were relatively cheap. Once I got them home it was a simple matter of opening the casing and cleaning out what appeared to be fresh soda from the keys. This earned the Teen an admonishment that she protested. In light of her recently broken iPad I still felt justified in telling her to keep better care of her things.
Seeing as today starts a new month, and it looks as though my patreon total is going to stay above $400, I owe said patrons another chapter of my story. I’ll write it up and post it there first. After a bit I’ll post it here for everyone. I hate to keep it from other readers, but it’s only fair that there be some benefit to being a patron… Apart from the comic anyway. Regardless everyone gets to see it eventually, so whatever. Seeing as there is also at least one person carrying more of the burden than everyone else I need to come up with some kind of reward. I guess I need one for other ranges of patrons too. I’m thinking of doing a limited run poster of Brooksie to send to patrons who give X amount of money. Then making a new one every so often that they will get as well. I’m not sure what the cost of that would be, so I’ll have to look in to it. It doesn’t make any sense to spend all the money on presents when the idea of it is to improve the comic in the first place. I have too much of a headache right now to think any harder about this right now anyway…
I made the Teen her own Nintendo account the other night since you cant have more than one 3DS with the same ID. (Because Nintendo is fucking stupid as hell sometimes.) The only reason I did it was so I could download demos for her to try out. A lot of the time she thinks things look awesome, gets insane over them, then is disappointed when she actually plays them. Which is what happened with her xmas present from me this year. Call Of Duty: Ghosts, or whatever it was, had no zombie mode and was boring to her. Which made me feel like a chump for wasting my money on it. With the demos she can get a taste and I can tell if it’s worth the purchase. So far she has decided she wants Tomodachi Life. Which I was surprised by, but whatever. Cooking Mama and Fire emblem I have not heard back on. Honestly Fire Emblem was probably a lost cause from the start, but I like it so much I thought maybe she’d find a new type of game she could enjoy. I almost downloaded Bravely Default, but I held off so she wasn’t overwhelmed by choices. Also I think it’s boring.
It’s kind of sad for me that I’ve gotten sick of Square/Enix games. They were practically my whole adolescence, but now they just seem like recycled garbage. After having no real desire to finish Final Fantasy 13, or whatever it was, I came to the conclusion that Final Fantasy 12 was ACTUALLY my final Final Fantasy. Not counting Final Fantasy Tactics: GOTR, which was a fantastic game that I loved. I think it came out after 12… Anyway, I guess I’ll see what comes down the pipe. If it looks like they stop sucking so much maybe I’ll just call this period the dark ages and forget about it.
Oh, in case any of you have a WiiU or 3DS, but don’t get the Nintendo newsletter, there’s a really good sale on Capcom games right now. The 3DS Resident Evil, that actually plays like a Resident Evil game, is on the list for $9 or there abouts. Well worth it if the demo is anything to go by. It was impressive and a price that low makes even I want to return to the series. There’s also Ducktales Remastered on the WiiU, which I’ll probably get. It looks really good.
Anyway, just thought you should know. The kid wants me to play zombies with her, so I’m going to go do that.
