Oekaki Puzzle (PS1) - some more puzzles on this.




Having to guess on another OP puzzle. Apparently this is (or can be)
an alternative style of nonogram to the strict logic-only kind you get
in e.g. the Nintendo/Jupiter Picross games, but you have to wonder if
the developers were really taking that approach intentionally in this
case. And I can't say I'm keen on it either way.

Air Conditioning Repair (RL) - Apparently one go-round in March wasn't
enough, so I had to do it again yesterday and today. I didn't realise
until just now that I technically didn't get any sleep from all of the
late night diagnosis I was doing. The worst case scenario was a failing
fan (priced at about $900 or so) but it turned out to be only a
capacitor (for a somewhat more reasonable $350). I need a nap now.

Nintendo Switch Updates (NSW) - Let's plug all my cartridges into the
OLED Switch so that I can download the game updates because you can't
just transfer those from an existing console for some reason. And now
let's not play any of those games because I have Toby's disease, where I
just set up the circumstances whereby play can happen and then never
actually let it happen.


Moar thyme - I did get enough gaming in earlier in the week to have
things to discuss on the podcast this month, but I am beat from hot
weather and anxiety.


The Expenditure section this week, as I didn't buy anything and I can't
be arsed to look up my current spend for the year.

-KKC, zzzzz.

Horizon Chase Turbo (Switch) - A mate let me know it was on sale so
thought I'd give it a punt as it was only a few quid. Quite impressed
how it's nailed the sweet spot between Outrun 2, Daytona and Ridge
Racer. A bit silly, clean crisp graphics and good fun!

> Want:

To feel like I want to play Zelda TotK. Every follow up to a major Zelda
game in the same hardware generation (e.g. Majora, Twilight Princess) I
don't seem to enjoy that much, and the same seems to have happened with
TotK. I *know* it's an awesome game, but I just can't get into it as
obsessively as I did BotW.

> Bin:

Cancer. One friend hopefully in remission and an ex-colleague now in a
really bad way. Neither of them deserve this shit.

Reddit. Deleted all my useful content and now I'm sniffing around
usenet and Lemmy.

Tiny bit of TotK, but I'm at the entrance to what's widely mentioned as
the worst temple and I need to gird my loins and get on with it.

Pikmin 4 is the only incoming thing I'm really into.

Having enough energy to chat about gamey things, but not enough to play
