At 6 weeks, me and my fiancée lost our baby.

The scan revealed there was no heartbeat. We are both staying strong but obviously after last time and now we are both heartbroken.

You’ll always be in our thoughts. Sorry if I am inactive from this. You guys will understand.

Love you all <3
(Hugs ya tightly)

Visual presentation to me in RPGs matters. A lot. I think it's really a shame when developers don't put the effort that area of their game deserves.
And when I say visual presentation I don't mean sheer graphical fidelity. Things like how the characters look, how they're animated, how the ITEMS look, even.

It really frustrates me when I see games like Dragon Age: Origins, with compelling tactical combat and intriguing characters... which however look and are animated like literal dolls kids play with. Seriously, whenever they move they all look like there's the invisible hand of a toddler manipulating their limbs, and the stiffness of their idle position makes that even more of a jarring sight and an awkward contrast. Not to mention the fact that it commits the same sin Neverwinter Nights 2 did, in that the armors look somewhat cartoonish and all that really creates an overall really rough presentation when the world is supposed to be gritty and taken seriously. It takes me out of the experience and breaks my immersion so much that I just can't enjoy the game because of it.

And talking about stiffness, oh boy Mass Effect is the champion for that, where every character, especially Shepard, looks like they've got a broomstick up their backside all the time. What's worse is that that reflects on the controls too, which to me feel so clunky and uncomfortable, it affects the actual gameplay as well. Which is also why I just can't enjoy Resident Evil games for the life of me (RE is not an RPG but still, its controls are even worse and I can't fathom how could anyone think replacing turning with strafing was gonna be a good idea).

It's also why I disliked the first Neverwinter Night patch that accompanied its first expansion, for some unknown reason they changed the running animation from a perfectly normal jogging to some kind of Naruto run pose, it was so cringy that the modding community rushed to make a mod that would replace it with the old animation, the sole thought of it makes me chuckle to this day.

Oh well. Can't have everything all the time I guess. Still, I do expect more from AAA productions, when even smaller projects made by smaller studios realize that this stuff matters.

While sitting on the toilet I had an epiphany. I have to things that I need to change. I may not act upon them at all but hey I realized something so I'll take the points. :D

When I condensed 3 chapters into 1 chapter the sheer amount of endorphins released into my noggin was yummy. I won't lie. :inlove:

I remembered this scene from first Capaldi episode and it made me incredibly sad by how shallow and dull Whittaker confrontation with her new villain was. Whole scene for her was boiled to "OMG I'm so random". I really hope it improves with the time.

My Mom is my rock. God bless that woman! In other news, I going to complete my Dragon Ball Manga collection. At first I wasn't going to because I have the entire show but seeing a incomplete Manga collection bugs me. So when this shipment comes in Dragon Ball (original) will be complete, then Z is next followed by Super.

I am sorry for your miscarriage. Next time you're about to get pregnant, try to calm your girl. I read somewhere that it says that most miscarriages are based around stress levels. So, if your girl is overthinking, overstressing, be there for her by saying "calm down."

Thanks.

I think the whole ordeal with the previous pregnancy being ectopic certainly put both of us on edge this time around. Maybe that didn’t help, but unfortunately all we can do now is hope to try again in the future and be successful.

Appreciate the advice.

JYB does have the perfect "fu@k you bad boy" voice. Hard to believe he was a Power Ranger... (3 different colors in fact!)

Sometimes I think I should settle even if she isn't my type. 30 is around (the far) corner and I don't want to end up like one of parents. (Never remarried) What am I waiting for? Something that may never come? What to do...?

Edit: But my sister made a good point, maybe I should move on to the next chick on the list.

New avatar, new personality. I seem to change my avatar whenever my current mental state changes. Strange, but interesting. Lately I've felt empowered.

In other news, been re-watching Ben 10 and damn, Argit is a great character for reaction images.


That face just screams "But why tho?"

So I've played RE4 so much I had a dream about the iron maidens and every morning there would be one standing outside the window till it heard me get up and do their weird sliver move through the window to get in.It didnt manage to hurt me but I would have to play this game every morning of getting it out of my room.Its the weirdest dream I've had in awhile.

Holy, the bear(s) dragged it a lot further this time. I'm just glad I found it--and not them. O_O Then again, it was a pretty easy trail to follow, what with all the flattened grass....and what with the bin sticking out like a sore thumb among all the greenery. >.> So glad they didn't get it open, either. Probably should get a new one, though. I don't know how much longer that lid can hold out.

+Kaz, baby...I know you're restless, but damn, you need to chill out. Just for like an hour or two. Please? I need to work. :'( I fear for the day when I'm actually writing again...
