terabient: Thor eats ALL THE FOOD (Marvel: Thor omnomnom)
To all my US friends: HAPPY THANKSGIVING! \o/

To all my international friends: HAPPY LAST THURSDAY OF NOVEMBER! \o/

I hope you all had a wonderful day. Mine went pretty well; I had to get up at 5:00 am to get my ass to work, but that went well and the client was in pretty good spirits after breakfast. I managed to get to my aunt's house about an hour before dinner was served, which gave me plenty of time to catch up with family. Unbeknownst to me, some of my cousins are going to PAX East next year, and so am I...but on different days. :c They are going on Friday and I'm going on Sunday, as those were the only badges left for the weekend by the time I was able to buy one.

Food was good as always...except for the turkey, which turned out a bit dry. Apparently, I am also the only person left among my cousins who prefers dark meat to white meat. This morning NPR ran a bit on how white meat is far more popular than dark meat in the US, which surprised me, for some reason. I guess I never considered that other people have different food preferences...? Haha, but honestly this fact has been bugging me all day. I just assumed everyone preferred dark meat but refrained from eating it because of health reasons or something. :P

This weekend I'm working going to decide what next-gen console to buy. Actually, I'm not certain if I'll get one at all--my sister and brother-in-law have an Xbox One and I wouldn't mind playing stuff like Destiny, the Gears remake, or Titanfall with them, and I have a fair amount of old 360 pals who have made the jump to X1...but there's not much else that appeals to me. The Playstation 4 has...I don't know? I'm still getting acquainted with the PS3's library, stuff like Uncharted and Bloodborne are just these big question marks for me. :c I'm most interested in the stuff on the Wii U, but I haven't used my Wii for anything in years and even though I would like to play a lot of the games on the U I think it would end up collecting dust simply because I don't have much time for gaming these days. I feel like my taste is narrowing too--sinking time into puzzle or strategy heavy games doesn't appeal to me anymore, and I don't know if I'll ever get back into certain genres again.

All this waffling is probably an indication that I should just waste $50 in the Steam Autumn Sale on games I like in theory and will never play, instead of wasting $350+ on a console I like in theory but will never play. :P
