Week 17 - Shitty Seagulls
I just posted something about Star Day, I wrote a quote, a quick note on how to change canvas limitations on Fireworks and about a bee. Overall a surprisingly varied array of topics in this short segment of time - but no movie reviews. But I have watched movies.
It's been another sunny week, regular work just one day, and the 26th was both Star and Pico Day over at NG. I spent the 22nd working together a quick contribution for the grand Pico Collab of 2014, and most of Saturday working up last minute pixel graphics (borrowed a sprite from that for the collab) for the Pico Day Beatdown game that was supposed to be released that same day... but due to unforeseen circumstances has been pushed into a distant future. I managed to fix my part on time, but the programming bit still remains and the programmers up for the job run into issues one after the other. I set up a live stream recording of the final NG Office live stream ever (they're selling the office soon) the same day, and managed to snap up around six hours before tired eyes forced me away from the screen. Damn timezones. But it was a great day! Happy Pico Day!!
I started with late nights this week, playing my way onwards through Dead Island, but then, all of a sudden... my save file corrupted! When I was up at past 80% progress!! GODDAMMIT! I started on a new character, but that kinda took away a little interest in that game... picked up Resident Evil Revelations instead, and so far it's been groovy; each cutscene like a movie, the old setting back and brewing combined with action: crawling, moving... through the walls. I love RE; don't we all? The corruption issue with Dead Island btw was apparantely due to me hoarding too many items, maybe too many of a certain item. It's a well-known bug, but for a game like this it's fatal. It's a game where you want to collect a lot of stuff. It's a post-apocalyptic zombie world so that kinda goes without saying, and if it doesn't go without saying, maybe they should impose some limits rather than letting excessive (also very time-consuming) habits crash the game. Just saying. Real bummer.
But back to speak of the week: day's have been sunny; cool, I spent Monday with a buddy, and that's... what else? Studies, work, work... work? Time flies! Also: a shitty seagull shit on my arm one day, when I was sitting peacefully on a bench by the quay studying. A real big blotch of seagull shit just suddenly splattered down from the skies, splashed on my arm; stained my shirt. Since then I've started seeking new locations to sit, places preferably at a safe distant from these disrespectful wide-winged critters.
Here's last week.
