A New Day Begins.

Or began a few hours ago, at any rate.

3:53pm

So, I ended up just kinda relaxing for a little bit, and then heading to bed about 15 minutes early. I figured what the heck. I know, it doesn’t sound exciting.

Not much has gone on so far today. It’s been rather quiet. And, as per weekend rules, not much going on on the internet, either. At least in the areas that I’m looking.

You know, I’m thinking that maybe now that I have Quake set up, I should spend some time playing that at some point. Start out with the main game or maybe just jump into some new stuff with the Quake Injector.

I’m sure I’ll end up spending a fair bit of time playing Fallout 4 today, but I suppose that could change. I mean, I don’t have much else planned for the day, so that’s probably what I’ll do. Got stuff to do in there, you know.

I can’t imagine that anything really unusual will go on. We shall see, though. I suppose for now, I will wander off. I’ll be back.

Another Day Down.

Well, mostly.

2:09am

I spent a good bit of time today playing Fallout 4. I did similar yesterday. At this rate, I’m going to get more playtime in FO4 than I ever did in Fallout: New Vegas, and I played the hell out of that game.

It’s kinda scary, and I still really haven’t made progress. I’ve been collecting magazines mostly. And doing a Minuteman quest here and there. The current Quartermastery quest is in Far Harbor, and I don’t feel like going there right now, so I’m just kinda hanging tight for now, and staying in the Commonwealth.

Speaking of, I found out today that War Of The Commonwealth and the Unofficial Fallout 4 Patch do not get along. Cable says I should take War out, but I haven’t really decided yet at this point. I really like War, and I think that maybe I should try taking the Patch out. I don’t know.

Besides that, there wasn’t much to talk about today. At least, nothing terribly important at this time.

I guess I don’t have a whole lot to say tonight. I doubt tomorrow will be much more exciting. I’m hoping I can solve FO4’s crash problem, and I can get on with gaming without having to reload all the time. That would be nice.

I did get a bunch more magazines, by the way. I’m starting to get a handle on them. I may even get them all before this playthrough is done. I’ve still got a lot of stuff to go and my level keeps going up and up. I need to accomplish more.

I suppose that this is the end, since I have nothing much else to say for tonight. Not sure what I’m going to do with the last hour and a half or so. I may play something, although it probably won’t be FO4. That is, if I play anything at all.

Oh, wait! I forgot! I got Quake set up last night. Yes, Quake 1. With a shiny sourceport called Quakespasm and the Quake Injector. Which, is something that I would love to have a Doom version of. I suppose I could build one myself. Of course, that would mean that I would have to learn to program all over again. I don’t know what’s useful or popular. I know QI was written in Java. That might not be bad. Have to learn it, though.

Okay, I suppose that’s all for now. I’ll be back sometime tomorrow.

A National Treasure.

I know I must be.

12:03PM

So, I was sick again yesterday. That was no fun. I spent most of the day in bed watching Fallout 4 videos. I really didn’t feel like doing much more than laying down and shivering. Well, I didn’t want to do the shivering, that just kinda was the way it was.

I had thought about posting yesterday, but that seemed like so much effort, so I decided not to. Not that there was a whole lot to say. I suppose I still don’t have a huge amount to talk about right now, but details.

Not that I have nothing to say. I have many words about the Super Bowl last night, though most of them are ‘Fuck Tom Brady.’ I should have known those assholes would win again. Gah.

Now I have to wait until September for meaningful football again. And NFL.com is going to be slow for the next few months, with a bit of an uptick at the combine, and a bigger uptick around the draft. It doesn’t really pick up with OTA’s, but once actual training camp starts, it will start the mill up again. And here’s hoping that our new GM does a better job than Grigson did. I mean, hell, I could have won Executive of the Year for drafting Andrew Luck first. And I probably would have done a better job down the line, too, but no one asked me to do it.

So, how about some gaming thoughts? I am going to try to get some gaming in today, I don’t know how much that will be. There are a few things around the house that should be taken care of. I may get to one or two of them, but I’m not sure. I’m feeling much better today, but I’m not so full of energy that I can bounce around the house.

That doesn’t mean that nothing will get done, just maybe not a lot. I suppose it’s not really a big deal, but details. Also, for some reason, yesterday my bathroom was overrun with ants. Why? I have no idea. There’s nothing sugary in there. Well, there’s no food in there at all, it’s a bathroom, not a kitchen. I put an ant trap thingy in there, so hopefully that will clear up in a day or two.

Dang it, I was gonna talk about games, and I got sidetracked. Kinda like when I try to play games sometimes. Anyways, did you see the new Minecraft map that is a 60 hour Pokemon game? I don’t even own Minecraft, but I downloaded it anyways, just in case I change my mind, and if anything could do that, it would surely be Pokemon.

Besides that, there’s an article on Kotaku today about Quake. That’s Quake 1. How the modding scene is apparently making a comeback, and there’s like one main repository for Quake maps and stuff, and there’s even a front end that will download them for you. Good stuff. That could get me back into Quake. I haven’t been much into that for a long time. I remember before it came out, I poured over every little detail and screenshot released. I had stacks of papers printed out so I could read through it anywhere. Plus, they mention two newer source ports for Quake. I could get behind that. Maybe not quite as hardcore as my love for Doom, but I surely wouldn’t cry if someone forced me to play.

Hrmm. I think I’m getting hungry. At least I hope that’s what my stomach is trying to say. I guess we will find out in a little bit.

Gah. I’ve been invaded by a cat. Danzig has decided to sit on me, above where the keyboard is. This is not particularly helpful or comfortable. I guess I’m going to have a cat problem today, because this is the third time a cat has been in my face today.

So, what am I going to play today? That’s a good question, though we know that the answer is most likely Fallout 4. But maybe I’ll get the urge to play something else. I’ll look through my list of installed games, and maybe I’ll pick something different.

I suppose that there’s not much else for me to talk about right now. At least, I can’t think of anything else right now. I’m sure something will pop into my head at some point, though.
