Okie, so there won’t be a livestream this week.  Sorry about that!  Hopefully we’ll resume next week!


So my friend Rich got a Wii U recently, and I’ve got to say my feelings on the console are mixed.  On one hand, the device is totally fun and, even having only played the Nintendoland stuff, I can see its potential for greatness.

On the other hand, using the screen controller made me super nauseous.  Any time a game required me to tilt the screen to look around, my stomach would churn uncontrollably.  Maybe it’s something that I’ll get used to, but so far the whole “move the thing you’re looking at” mechanic doesn’t seem to have been made with the motion sickness crowd in mind.

Also, the Mii Creator’s photo option… let’s just say it doesn’t do such a swell job.

That said, I can’t wait to play it (and get nauseous) again!

Small, semi-work related note from this week.  There’s a pretty good Thai place that a co-worker and I go to often, and a few days ago we set out to make the familiar journey.  Upon arrival, we attempted to open the door, but an employee was there waving us away.

That’s when we noticed the signs.  Posted every few feet along their storefront were bright yellow signs that said something to the effect of, “Closed by the order of the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.”

We couldn’t say for certain, but they must have had one heck of a bad health inspection to have been shut down instead of getting a C or B.

We’re totally going to get some super disease after having eaten there so often.
