I have nothing more to say of the Mare's latest post regarding their opinion on transgender issues than that I am extremely disappointed that such an influential blog is pushing such a harmful message. I am unsurprised that they removed my blog's link from their sidebar. To be honest, I was expecting it, and I'm surprised they didn't do it sooner.

I'm not going to try and fight them on this, or rebutt their post. They appear to be very set in their ways, and they aren't worth the effort. I have better things to spend my time and energy on.

Since I have better things to spend my time on, I will no longer be giving any time to their blog. This will be my last post on the issue.

EDIT: I stand corrected, the Mare's have simply moved my blog down on their sidebar. My apologies for the misunderstanding.

OMG - The Baby's KICKING!

This is the second time I've spotted some stupid 'virtual life' website advertising on Facebook using a Sims screenshot. The first time was Sims 3. Now they're using Sims 4, too.

Well. Not much more to say about that I guess.

Four Months ??????

Well, it has somehow been four fucking months since the last time I posted on here. I've had the new post page in my pinned tabs since early September.

As you can probably guess, a shit ton of stuff's gone down since I last posted here. I'll go over some key highlights, but before I get into real world stuff, let's talk Sims.

I am all read up on Sims 4 and the fucking disaster that ensued post-release. I can't see myself ever buying that mess of a game. EA trying to win people back by adding features back via game patch is very sad to watch. This game is a train wreck. I'm not very optimistic about the first expansion pack picking up the slack. They fucked up so badly, I don't think anything can save them now.

As for Sims 3, I haven't played it since July for three main reasons. The first reason that's less of a reason not to play and more of a peeve is that, for whatever reason, the blurry texture glitch has returned to my game. The second reason is that with school starting up, I hardly have the amount of time required to really get into a game. The third reason, and the most spectacularly angering one, is that two of my favourite game files, the two files that I put the most time and effort into, will not save. I have deduced that the save process is getting stuck on deleting the old file before the creation of the new one. If I force my game to close while it's still trying to save, when I reopen the file, it resumes at the last time it successfully saved. My game is totally up to date, which is unfortunate, because I can't just try a new patch to see if that fixes it because EA's stopped patching Sims 3. I'm going to go back in today and try saving it under a new name as a new file to see if that old file deletion is the only process it's getting stuck on. It'll be annoying to constantly have to save my games under new file names every time, but it'll be a damn sight better than not being able to save at all.

And now, back to reality. That'll be under the cut for anyone who wants to read.
