So much for the fog lifting

Looks like the fog has finally cleared. Shame, it was kinda cool. At least there seems to be a beautifully crisp blue autumn sky beyond it.

At least the frame rate is amazing

Almost lunchtime and still foggy as fuck. I expect zombie pirates any minute now. Good thing I'm down at the harbour anyway.

Dragon Age Inquisition

Of course I spent more time creating my character than actually playing the game. I started with a male human rogue who looked like a sad 1980s new wave musician. That seemed a bit dull, so I switched to a female elf. She ended up looking like a 15 yo boy for some reason, which became a bit unnerving after playing for 30 minutes. So I tried again. There's still something decidedly boyish about her, but I suppose that's just my subconscious trying to tell me something. The really important question though is: with all the amazing advancements in computer graphics -- why does hair still look just as shitty as 10 years ago?

Dragon Age Inquisition has been unlocked and Android 5.0 for my Nexus 10 is downloading. I'm supposed to be in bed, dammit.

Agents of SHIELD struggled a bit during its first season but found its footing near the ned. The second season? SO very good so far.

On that note: this thing here got funded in 2 hours. Rules? We don't need no stinkin' rules in crowdfunding. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/jolla-tablet-world-s-first-crowdsourced-tablet/x/2566566

2 years ago, Thimbleweed Park would have gotten 10 times the pledges in the same time. The game will definitely get funded, and overfunding isn't necessary, so maybe this is a good thing. But if a new classic adventure game by Ron Gilbert reaches "only" 50% in 24 hours, this is a clear sign that things in crowdfunding have changed dramatically.

Dragon Age Inquisition is currently preloading. 25 gigs. I need a bigger boat.
