Started playing This War of Mine
again. Muddled through a couple days continuing my old playthrough until I made a stupid oversight and sent a severely ill guy -- who I meant to have rest -- out to scavenge the supermarket instead. I resigned myself to try to make the best of it, but when he stumbled upon the soldier getting ready to assault the woman, he wasn't even able to really hurt the guy before the soldier shot him point blank, killing him. I think that might be the first time I've quit a playthrough (probably second, come to think of it). At least in this case, it was my own stupid fault, instead of some glitch or RNG bullshit that fucked me over.
Anyway, I started a new game with a random setup. Apart from not being able to help a couple people due to my lack of food and medicine early on -- as well as one more (thankfully, minor) instance of my failing to set up a scavenging mission the way I intended -- it's going pretty well so far.
Also, I played some more of The Room: The Game
, which I haven't really touched in a couple years. It's still one of the most entertaining Flash games I've played (though this depends heavily on being familiar with the movie it's paying tribute to). Maybe I'll even finish the thing this time, who knows? Also
also, still messing around with Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup
. Xom is a most entertaining god, but I had to laugh when my most recent Half-Orc, a fighter who worshiped Beogh, got killed by an enemy Orc priest...after which, I saw a message to the effect of "Beogh is pleased by the Orc priest's killing of a heretic." This after my character had recently been killing enemy "heretic" Orc priests himself, and had gotten a similar message each time about Beogh being pleased with me. XD
Finally, I actually fired up some of my Microsoft game apps (Mahjong
, Solitaire Collection
) recently, and have been playing those off and on when I don't feel like playing anything more involved. First time I've even attempted
to use them since last year, I believe, when there was some persistent problem that didn't let me sign in for months; It's probably been well over a year since I really played any of them last.
