END LIVESTREAM UPDATE!
What? A Borderlands strip? That hasn’t happened in a while. I finally decided to finish up some of the DLCs that I had sitting around, which prompted some Borderlands love.
A few months ago I went through Captain Scarlett and, while it wasn’t horrible, it was pretty disappointing. This time around I tackled the Sir Hammerlock DLC…
That one was pretty horrible.
But then I ran through Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep…
It was incredible. Absolutely astoundingly amazingly incredible. It features a nice twist to the already stellar Borderlands 2 gunplay while featuring a narrative that had me rolling with laughter while pulling on my heartstrings.
If you’ve never played a Borderlands game, it’s worth it just for Tiny Tina’s DLC alone.
A minor nitpick, however. I guess this is less of a nitpick of the game than it is of how my brain processes information, but I constantly have issues when a boss dies and tons of items drop. Each item has a glowing line rising out of it, it’s color related to the item’s rarity.
In order of rarity (low to high): White, Green, Blue, Purple, Orange, Teal.
For health and money drops, those glow lines are Red and Yellow, respectively.
Nearly every time I look through a crowd of items, I’m so sure a Pearlescent dropped, only to find that it was a green, blue, and white item viewed from a funny angle.
The same applies for health and money, which leads me to believe that a Legendary dropped.
And now, a food story from last week that I never got around to.
I was making gnocchi last week and wanted some graded cheese to go with it. Fortunately, there was a full container of Pecorino Romano in the fridge.
Expiration date: sometime during 2012.
The package was still sealed, and hard cheeses generally last a really long time… right?
I figured the expiration date was more of formality than a suggestion. After pulling off the plastic seal and giving it a quick whiff, I decided the cheese was fit for consumption.
If my toilet could talk, it would tell you that was the wrong decision.
Expiration dates, folks… follow them.
