    I've been feeling really run-down and knackered during my cycle commute recently. I thought for a while that there might be something wrong with my lungs because I was bringing up phlegm and generally feeling horrendous after every journey, but an x-ray confirmed nothing untoward going on there.

    I'm having to come to terms with the fact that I may just be really unfit.

    I've been riding to work recently too. Used to take 10 minutes, then they moved us to a different hospital so takes me 30-40 minutes to ride there. At the beginning once you start making certain muscles move again you'll be shattered and spitting that clear fluid action, but as you fully activate the gains the spitting will slow down* and the burn won't be as bad, which you hopefully will be able to tell by how you can manage your gears. I usually have mine on the max, but when starting had to dial it down, now I'm back up and not feeling nowhere near as knackered as I used to.

    Just stick at it, and shizzle will improve.

    I did rather heavy deadlifts and a 3 hour bike ride on Sunday. On Sunday, I was okay but from Monday, my lower back was aching. Like a DOMS-sort of ache. It's okay walking and stuff but if I pick something up from the ground or slouch or something, I feel it (if it makes sense). It's worse when I wake up because I sleep in the same position for hours. I haven't felt that in ages. You guys have any advice on how to recover quick from it? I'm going to take a couple of days away from working out.

    A bath with some Radox?

  3. I've started working my way through The Promised Neverland, which on paper sounded like a good concept - kids in orphanage find out when they get taken away they get eaten by demons, and try to escape - but I'm about 4 episodes in and I'm um'ing and ah'ing about whether I want to continue* as it's a bit slow on the pacing, and two things have really stuck out...


    They're planning on scaling this wall about 3m high, yet in earlier episodes came across a fence you could just lift your leg over, and for the smaller kids, just walk under the bar.


    One point at looking at this wall, one of the characters says in response to a concern that they're being watched/in danger - "I don't sense any demons". Whoa, where did this magic demon sense suddenly come from? 

    Plus the usual anime schtick of assuming something and it automatically being correct, but that's across the board.

    Oh, not you and the great fairies too...

    Sounds like, on the whole, you're having a decent enough time with it. Promising.

    I spent Saturday and Sunday opening those fashion-obsessed broads from their botanical abodes. They're still as inappropriate as before with their unwanted advances and non-consensual behaviour. But they beefed up some clothes, at a cost of materials which seemed higher than previously, but I am trying to get away with something other than the Hylian getup. Except the hood because I haven't been able to get any other headwear, except for the enemy heads, but you can't upgrade those.

  5. After one dungeon and some continued fapping about, if the series wants to follow this formula - this is the game Breath of The Wild ought to have been. There's actually stuff to do in many a place, with much less running across boring expanses. Some of the shrines seem more basic than others (teach me the ways of the bow several hours in, please), but on the whole is more variety than before, even if it's mainly fetch quests. I've got 2 full circles of stamina which is helping nicely. Good game? yes. Great game? I guess. Worthy of all perfect scores and enough ejaculation to fill every Olympic swimming pool on Earth? No way. But certainly an improvement.

    It's curious as to where the series will go now, it shouldn't be set in Hyrule next time unless there's some giant continental shift which makes the landscape totally different, and something more substantial than many lil puzzle boxes sacrificing the number of temples/dungeons etc. Also new mechanics, as opposed to just renaming magnesis and giving it some tweaks.

    Termina could be a good frame to work from (but more than 4 dungeons before y'all start)

    [I do wish the clothing mechanic would fuck off though, sure you can alter the appearance, but maybe some sort of badge/enhancement system as you explore to allow for extra abilities as opposed to having to pause and switch to your cold/heat resisting trousers, or Zora armour if you get anywhere near water... I don't have enough shit to upgrade them all]

    The main thing that is on my side is that i learned attaching the stuff that enemies drop to weapons make them much stronger and also increase the durability,

    I've been meaning to ask, is there a quicker way to fuse weapons than having to select the piece, drop it on the floor and then use fusion?

    It's a bit clunky

    What's there to not understand? I paid for BotW, and disliked it immensely.

    I was meaning you pay the fairy and then she molests you.


    (not the game, although like yourself I felt it fucked me over also...)

    You say that knowing full well I paid for the game, and deemed it unacceptable, right?

    Sounds like you've been brainwashed to the max to the point that I'm confused.

    ANYWAYS! I caved to curiosity and watched a small video on shield surfing, mainly because I barely used it/could never do it half the time in previous game, but this is something I think will be essential:


    fuse minecart with a shield, gives you a nice skateboard, and you can grind along mine rails.

    I'm so poor in the game.

    Yes, just in the game.

    I think because I'm aiming for stamina more than hearts I'm having my anus handed to me more. Plus it seems that they've really amped up the defence power on enemies, whilst giving me fuck all. They go from no armour to tridents on their heads and sucking hits like a sponge and dealing hits like a tank



    I need to get some of those flower broads some music so they can pimp me out.

    Better than them asking for money and then molesting me as they did in the previous game.

  10. Well:


    Fuck me... I died so much here trying to make it through this shrine properly, first drove around thinking one hit with a vehicle was all it took, so kept going round in circles and failing. Then found the laser and flamethrower, but turning was a bit of a ballache so I clipped a wall and got overwhelmed (I only have like 7 hearts), I tried just holding the laser above my head but I was too slow to avoid the mace dude who took off all but one of my hearts.

    In the end, turn on laser horse and use magnesis ultrahand to take everything out.

    Then discover the pimped monster truck.

    I haven't even gone to the depths yet. But I did just complete the Rito dungeon.

    While I liked BOTW I just couldn't get into it. I'm way more invested in TOTK.

    I'll see about these dungeons sometime, still messing about. The abundance of stuff is good, it's just a shame you've got to run miles between each thing

    Get into the Depths, you'll love it.

  12. My circle of L shoulder button commands is complete!


    Riding around on my 2 Death Horses, Binky 1 and Binky 2 (I lost them both), essential for travelling on Gloom and zooming straight to the light bud thingies or Poe farming. I found the Central Mine and fisted the Yiga Clan Leader. With all the additions they kept pimping his ride with in the various phases, thinking back I think I was expected to maybe Megahand it apart, all I did was jump on the back every time and lay the smacketh-down.

    I'm surprised this even existed, as it was the sky that was being touted as one of the major draws, despite it looking like a vast plain of nothing which is tricky to navigate because you need to wait for stones to fall down and take you up to somewhere decent, (came across rockets yesterday which was fun. Wish I could go back to where it was to try a different angle to get somewhere.), yet completely didn't let slip the Depths, sneaky Nintendo. It's another realm of empty plain, so that should satisfy the fans even more as somewhere else to navigate.

    I did a great thing in a shrine where I had to make a plank and 4 wheels - this will not come as a spoiler to anyone - but instead I fused one wheel on either side to the wheel next to it, making for a great movement. I did record it so I'll post it later.


    Here it is


    And another fine achievement..

    The Dragon Ball thing is so confusing. Everyone has a different way to start watching and it's so confusing yet people find it confusing following Kingdom Hearts?! 🤣

    How much time you willing to invest? If enough, watch 'em all.

    Except Dragonball GT, which many people disliked and wasn't canon in following the manga, (I didn't think it was that bad to be honest), but Dragonball Super officially took over as the continuation of the series. Think like what Disney did to Star Wars by releasing their dogshit movies, except people were happier about GT being scrubbed.

    Sometimes even my plank and four wheels doesn’t work lol

  16. They'll be lucky if I go anything beyond a plank and 4 wheels!


    I may be wrong in this as it's early days, but I think the residence of Hyrule have been lazier than I gave them credit for...


    When we first saw the trailers with all the expanded settlements, I thought that this was stuff that had been done post-Ganon, pre-Ganondorf... however, everything new that I've come across is related to "ThE uPhEavAL", built around all the random tat that has just appeared in the however many days Link was missing for - I'm guessing less than a week - so nothing new was built (again, could be wrong) in the estimated 2-3 years between events. I did more shit on my house than the entire Kingdom. Tarry Town was a monument to my efficiency.


    Unless shit falls from the sky, then ramps and scaffolding appear overnight like magic


    Question on horses:


    As the horses carried over, for those who got the DLC with magic horse appearing action*, did that carry over also?


    *something the great Fenyx did without having to shell out extra


    Who else got those Delfino vibes?


    When carrying round the hydrant near the Zora tower and freeing the Zora dude from the sludge?
