      Shouldn't it be No-Labour Day or something? Sit On Your Ass Day? The Day of Non-Work? Do you ever think about stuff like that? I do. There's a sad comment on my life.

    • New Fable/0x10c sadness

      5 years ago

      Yawnski

      Bit of a long one today, so you'll have to bare with me.

      A few minutes ago, I found out that Lionhead Studios is working on a game called Fable Legends, the newest continuation of the Fable series. I gotta say, I'm not really sure how I feel about this.

      On the one hand, Fable is one of my favourite game series of all time, so on that basis I am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Also, the little I know of it sounds pretty interesting; four players play as heroes in third person, while a fifth plays the villain RTS-style, setting traps and monsters for the heroes.

      That being said, I don't know what the future holds for Fable post-Molyneux. As you may or may not know, Peter Molyneux and Lionhead parted ways a while back. People give him a lot of shit about hyping his games, but the fact is he is one of the smartest, most savvy game designers out there. I'll miss having him behind the wheel. And this game will be an Xbox One exclusive, and I still have reservations about the price and DRM policies.

      Most of all, what I want to see is Fable IV. An honest-to-God numeric sequel. I hope I'll see that soon.

      On a lighter note, let me share with you something that broke my heart. Markus Persson, aka Notch, was working on a new project, a sci-fi sandbox game he called 0x10c (ten to the see). I was super-stoked about this; it sounded like I would get to do everything I wanted to in Mass Effect but couldn't.

      But production on this game slowed, then stalled, then stopped. Then, recently, Notch revealed that he was not going to continue the project, citing the fact that it didn't feel fun anymore.

      My thoughts upon hearing this: go to the Nova Scotia Liquor Commission, buy three bottles of white rum, and head to the beach for the last swim I'll ever have. But there is hope. Fans of the project are soldiering on, creating a tribute to the project called Project Trilleck. But for Notch, the battle is over, and the original 0x10c will likely hover in limbo for a long time.

      I'd end on a joke but I'm too tired to think of anything funny.

      I just thought I should post a new entry since it is no longer my birthday.

      This journal entry is dedicated to the moon; La Bella Luna, our lovely natural satellite, that big ol' hunk of rock and rigolith. As a species we need to show the moon a lot more respect. And I'm gonna tell you why.

      I watched a documentary which discussed what would happen if, hypothetically, the moon were to suddenly disappear. The first thing affected would be the ocean. The moon controlled the tide through its gravitational pull, causing to tidal bulges to occur: one on the side closest to it, and one on the side farthest from it.

      If the moon vanished out of the blue, those bulges would instantly release, and the result would be massive, devastating tsunamis all around the globe. The weather would go crazy, as well; there would be enormous hurricanes and typhoons, and ocean currents around the globe would be disrupted. The doc gave the example of the Gulf Stream.

      Think about this: the Gulf Stream brings warm currents and mild climate to the UK, a country of 65 million people. Great Britain is as far north as Sweden, a much colder country which a much smaller population. If the moon went away, and the Gulf Stream were to stop doing that, the UK (and probably most of Northern Europe) would experience low crop yield, and a massive decrease in quality of life.

      What I find most fascinating is the affect on Earth's axis that would occur. Without the moon, the Earth would slowly tilt over time. It would take at the very least tens of thousands of year, but eventually, the equator would be a frozen tundra, and the poles would be like jungles!

      The moral of this story, ladies and germs, is respect the moon! It does a lot for us, and asks for very little.

      Where's your parade, moon? Where YOUR parade!?

    • Good to have a dream...

      I thought that I would share a dream that I have with you guys. I want to own a castle someday.
      I'm talkin' a fully pimped-out, uber castle that I could live stay in, and be the lord of my goddamn domain.

      It would have to have a fully equipped dungeon and torture chamber; I'm tired of keeping my victims in the basement. Maybe have thumbscrews instead of thumbtacks. A rack instead of my dad's workbench. Oh, and hungry jackals. The squirrels aren't working out very well. I have to coat my victims in peanut butter for them to work, and that's just adding insult to injury.

      What else?

      A moat, but not with water. As I mentioned in an earlier journal entry, a moat freezes, and therefore is not practical for keeping out intruders in Canadian winters. Broken glass and salts works just fine. Just make sure you let the post office know, or you have a lawsuit on your hands.

      I've got lots more ideas, so just you wait. If you've got any suggestion, leave a comment.

      Peace.

      You ever have one of those moments where you want to listen to music, but your cat has forgotten that she is a mammal, and is trying to incubate your iPod like a bird with an egg?

      Because that's happening to me right now.
