Comments of the Week 39: Post Hoc, Ergo, Propter Hoc

A Cold Cold Man Winter is almost over here and thank God, for I do not know how much longer I cam bare this cold (I say as those in Scotland, Canada, Greenland, Sweden etc. all laugh heartily).  Though the weather may be stereoty...

 
 
 

What's this? CotW will be up in two minutes you say? Well blow me (please do) down.

 
 
 

I admit I didn't respond to people personally from that last cblog. But I really appreciate everyone's feedback. I hope everyone has had (and will continue to have) a nice weekend + holiday and beyond.

 
 
 
 
 

Got the Suzuha ending in Steins;gate. Feels bad man. Feels really, really, really bad. Like a black hole has crushed my heart and sucked out the joy. Goddammit videogame, let people be happy.

 
 
 

Nobody's going to mention the best president of all? Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho will not be beaten.

 
 
 

I swear I'm the worst at finishing games. I've yet to beat Death of the Outsider, Hollow Knight, Super Mario 64 AND Prey, even though I'm a significant portion through all of them. Ugh.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Help a sister out guys. I'm almost set to launch my Etsy shop. I still don't have a name for it. I'm wanting to open March 1st.

 
 
 

Today on this most auspicious of holidays, we must all remember one thing...

 
 
 

Finally got around to beating AM2R and I'm seriously impressed. It's better than Samus Returns by a long shot and easily one of the best games in the series. Play it if you haven't!

 
 
 

So guys, I gotta tell you some great news!!! Your girl WON A PLUSHIE COCK!!! I'm so excited. 😊

 
 
 

I’m ready to go home, but my work computer decided to perform a mandatory security update.

 
 
 
 
 

Looks like the work weeks going to be a light one this week. I also have Hellblade which I'll try to start and I may try to keep cracking at MHW. Overall I'm not feelin too bad today, and I'm hopeful its a good week. Praise Nixon on this glorious day.

 
 
 

Started playing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in honor of Presidents Day. 5 years old and this game is still amazing. It's no wonder Platinum has built up such an awesome reputation.

 
 
 

I searched for "bayonetta switch special edition" on Amazon and found this on the 1st page of results. Is there something I should know about this game?

 
 
 

Gotta love the gym's showers this time of the year, they're either freezing cold or boiling hot.

 
 
 

It might be President Day in the states, but here in Canada it's Family Day! Go celebrate your family! Hug your parents! Chill with your siblings! Or at least give em a phone call!

 
 
 

Ostensibly, today is President's day. (Time and space are both a mystery to me, but my calendar says it is, so whatevs) Related, here is the President of my heart:

 
 
 

21 degrees and snowing. Perfect weather for a run to the gym!
