Wanted to preemptively set up OBS for VR shenanigans in the near future, but since the headset I've been eying isn't out yet, I have to borrow my friend's... Oculus Rift.

They're not kidding when they say it will soon require a Facebook account. This is just for installing and using the required software.

I hate it already.

Finally cleared Hell in Spelunky after binging it for the last several days. I don't think another game has ever kicked my ass this much. :blobcatDizzy:

Well then, onward to the sequel! :blobcatHeroGlow:

Cold!

It's cold.

It's really effing cold! 😬

food preparation, very non-vegan 

So for the first time ever I bought one of those cylindrical beef chubs instead of the usual packaging, because it was cheapest option, and it is SO much easier and cleaner to shape burger patties this way. How come no one ever taught me this?! :blobcatDizzy:

dragonfly 

Not the biggest or most colorful I've ever seen, but still a rarity in these parts. Was trying to take a close-up shot but the best I could manage was zoomed before it flew away.

At least I have dragonfly pic on my phone now. :blobcatCamera:

bug talk 

Although I did get bitten by a brown house spider recently. It landed on my leg, then when I picked it up to take it outside the little bugger chompf'd down on the tip of my finger, and stayed that way until I removed it.

Fingertip felt tingly afterward, probably because they're venomous but still can't do any real damage to people.

bug talk 

Lately I've gotten pretty used to holding spiders (and even centipedes!). The most common ones around here are actually pretty harmless and cowardly.

I'm honestly more startled by touching their webs. :blobcatFearful:

tl;dr spoiler, cw: assault 

I had a dream where "someone" touched the back of my neck. It felt real and I was definitely alone, but I had sleep paralysis and couldn't move. :blobcatPuffyFearful:

I had a surreal, if creepy experience last night. I've adapted it into a short story (<1000 words). Give it a read if you feel like it.

cw: surrealism, assault, creepypasta

Spotted this cute little critter lurking in the corner while taking a delivery (bug) 

Housemate confirmed it as an American dagger moth caterpillar. Glad I decided to wear gloves! :blobcatSweats:

Been playing the 2D and 3D modes of Dragon Quest XI (S) in parallel. My dearest friend and I had a good laugh when we were investigating the differences in one particular house... but it seems a certain 'inspector' had already beaten us to the punch!

That being said, I'm sure the developers meant for it to be more about enjoying the journey, but I'm not sure the message completely got across. :blobcatShrugSmirk:

Contrast that with Kid Icarus' sister game, Metroid, which will give you a better reward if you forego exploring in favor of achieving a better clear time. It's the exact opposite, even though the games were developed at the same time.

Actually, I kind of scared myself just now. One of these games rewards you for completing your objective as swiftly and efficiently as possible. The other rewards for... taking time to amass vast sums of power and wealth??? :blobcatThinkingGlare:

Watching the GDQ speedrun of Kid Icarus reminds me that there's a lot of games out there that implement "reverse difficulty", where a game only gets easier the more you upgrade your character.

This is fine if a game is well-balanced to keep up with character growth. However if you somehow manage to clear this game at its most challenging, your reward for your efforts will be the worst ending! Strange! But also amusing. :blobcatGiggleSmirk:
