    If I ordered an old fashioned at a bar and it was made with scotch, that wouldn't be what I ordered, and I'd send it back. It kind of is a rule!

    If you ordered an old fashioned at a bar without specifying which bourbon/whiskey you wanted in the drink, you'd end up with well alcohol no matter what kind, which would be awful regardless.

    This is not my experience at all! At restaurants and bars here, it's pretty unusual to specify which whiskey you want in your old fashioned (or any cocktail ingredients), and kind of gauche unless you frame it as a special request — cocktails are priced and calculated based on standardized ingredients and amounts, and substitutions and alterations generate extra work for the bartender or server

    I mean if it's on a menu then sure.

    I dunno, maybe this is an American thing? If you order a standard cocktail off-menu you're probably getting well. Maybe at a nicer bar they'll give you something decent?

    Specifying what alcohol you want in a drink shouldn't make it harder to price; the money's all in the alcohol, you just ring it up as, say, "Buffalo Trace mixed drink" in the computer or something. If you're a server, you ring up Buffalo Trace and type in "Old Fashioned".

    I don't think whiskey and coke is a trash drink at all

    It's very tasty, significantly different from its individual parts, and very drinkable for people who don't like boozy drinks

    It's almost exactly the same as a gin and tonic, let's be honest

    Also the recipe for Coke is essentially just carbonated bitters

    Yeah, they wouldn't have four different kinds of gin on the shelf if they weren't prepared to use the fancy ones instead of well gin/Beefeater. It's not like it trips them up when you get a craft brew instead of bud light.

    It’s been an interesting development over the last few months, the notion that I will be finished with transition sometime in the next year or so. Until I realized this, I had kinda been unwittingly stuck in the headspace I would be doing this indefinitely? Like, it’s been such a long, exhausting journey, and it would have still been so much longer if I wasn’t in Seattle, I had unconsciously just rolled all of this effort into my baseline daily expectation . . . and it’s just not so.

    Which means now I’m facing this notion of what to do with my life.

    Yeah @credeiki I'm too far in to stop, but I'll play the next one on commander. Then if that goes well, I am... legend... ><

    Veteran is fairly satisfying in that e.g. I killed two sectopods, five elite advent troops, an andromedon, and three archons at once with a single shot taken against my troops, but I think I'll enjoy the hairier aspects of harder difficulties, as well as the challenge, because obviously if I managed that then I'm not being challenged appropriately. Good to do it on this difficulty first, though - getting wiped because of the error that led to this would be infuriating, I don't want to have fuckups due to weird misinterpreted edge cases, I want them to be because I made a mistake I could have reasonable avoided.

    21st bought me XCOM 2 a few months back and I still need to get around to playing it because I've already got a ridiculous pileup of games I need to finish. EU/W is one of my favorite games of all time, I really need to get to 2.

    it's one of my favorite games of all time, especially with WotC
    it is just...basically perfect at doing what it wants to do. Like I cannot point at an element of the game I'd like to change (ok fine the writing is dumb, but it's totally serviceable and also not important to the game)

    @cB557 this is accurate, I think it's legitimately one of the best made games of all time. It doesn't do much that's super revolutionary or novel (like, it's not Undertale), but everything it does it does extremely well and purposefully. It knows what it's doing, and it does that, and it makes most aspect of it perfect, and things that were perfect last game even better. It has novel ideas about old systems, improving things in ways I wouldn't have thought of. It made the strategic part of the game, which I have disliked in almost every XCOM game, pretty tolerable. It does tiny things that are nice, like giving every engineer and scientist you have a face and name. The strategic layer now involves true and constant choices, instead of just waiting and reacting to events. I liked the story, too. It's masterful and I love it and now I'm going to go play it instead of doing work because a certain cat kept me up until 2AM last night, so my sleep is completely fucked and I can't think.

    (I don't actually hate the writing either, though there are certain lines that are like "omg pls sir, talk like a normal person, not a B horror movie extra. 'I don't think there's water in that' is not a normal thing someone says when looking at a green glowing fluid")

    I don't like the hero unit thing that the expansion and DLC add, but given that I don't like it, they did it in the least annoying way I've seen. So, yes. It's fantastic, I want XCOM 3 so much. It kind of reminds me of Super Mario Galaxy in how refined it is, and how much I'm like "yes, this is perfect, if I taught a year-long video game course, this game would be the capstone to the turn-based tactics module."

    Some people seem to be really rebelling against that comparison and I haven’t played destiny so I don’t really know. It’s a shooter. There’s loot. There’s cover. You have powers. There’s no micro transactions as far as I can tell. You can’t seem to pause it.

    I’m just through the tutorial at this point. It’s a lot of hopping from cover to cover and shooting which I kind of dig even though I only ever played Gears of War 1.

    Yeah! This is all true. Which makes me think I need to spend more time devoted to something altruistic or enriching. Doing more trans outreach or charity work, or just taking up more artistic stuff.

    It’s on console Game Pass but not PC I don’t think.

    Also I didn’t finish the thought. I only ever played Gears 1 but really dug kill.switch on the Xbox and this feels similar.

    I don’t think I can play multi yet but it seems like it would be fun that way.

    Well the cat brought back another live mouse.

    This was fine when she was killing and eating them, but instead she wants to play with them until she gets bored and then let's them go.

    And it turns out I don't know how to kill a mouse at 2.30am so I just released it into the storm drain outside.

    I went in and told the wife that my allergies were really acting up today and then I threw up 15 playing cards.

    She giggled and now it's cemented that I'm spending 30 minutes a day with sleight of hand.

    @bloodyroarxx I'm going to repost this from a chat or so ago because I think you'd did it, but also because who doesn't like playing more free games that are fuuuuuuuuun.

    If I ordered an old fashioned at a bar and it was made with scotch, that wouldn't be what I ordered, and I'd send it back. It kind of is a rule!

    If you ordered an old fashioned at a bar without specifying which bourbon/whiskey you wanted in the drink, you'd end up with well alcohol no matter what kind, which would be awful regardless.

    This is not my experience at all! At restaurants and bars here, it's pretty unusual to specify which whiskey you want in your old fashioned (or any cocktail ingredients), and kind of gauche unless you frame it as a special request — cocktails are priced and calculated based on standardized ingredients and amounts, and substitutions and alterations generate extra work for the bartender or server

    I mean if it's on a menu then sure.

    I dunno, maybe this is an American thing? If you order a standard cocktail off-menu you're probably getting well. Maybe at a nicer bar they'll give you something decent?

    Specifying what alcohol you want in a drink shouldn't make it harder to price; the money's all in the alcohol, you just ring it up as, say, "Buffalo Trace mixed drink" in the computer or something. If you're a server, you ring up Buffalo Trace and type in "Old Fashioned".

    A caveat is you would really only do this with basic cocktails like a martini or manhattan or old fashioned

    I think it would be kind of gauche in the US to request a different kind of liquor than the one listed in a complicated cocktail

    But if I saw that they had Barr hill gin I would ask for a Barr hill martini

    The thing I really love about Chimera Squad is how it's all killer, no filler. I love XCOM and other turn-based tacti-kill games to death but man I do not like hustling dudes across a huge map six squares at a time for 20 minutes to get to the next fight.

    The game takes place in a fictional academy in Japan, where the player takes the role of a male student, Tenzou Motesugi. He must shoot his female classmates, who are running desperately after him, with "Pheromone Arrows" to prevent them from making their partner, while he finds one of the four lead girls before sunset.

    I would post screenshots, but the game is WAY too pervy for that.
