With Baited Breath, For The Kingdom Come

Posted in Uncategorized on February 19, 2018 by themaresnest

Over at Zeri’s Useless Ponderings, she’s taken time away from The Glitterturd to try out the video game press’ current darling, Kingdom Come: Deliverance – and with a game named like that, you can be sure there’s Mission fans behind it.

Like most of the early players, she’s already developed a love-hate relationship with it, many speaking of being enawed of the detail and the general realism for the period (in particular the slowburn pace – no more fast travelling or earning farcical amounts of gold or advancements in next to no time – in KCD, the path to greatness is slow and labourious). Here’s some of her screenshots taken from her travels (we’ll leave aside that the mighty warrior Henry is out to seek his destiny on a horse she has named Pebbles!)

There’s also been the other usual complaints that people have found a way to legally cheat in the game using the rather lax security in shops to easily steal back any money spent on provisions (which is less risky than trying to steak the provisions themselves), but we’ve had that from every game around.

Once the flurry of patches kicks in, it will be interesting to see if the claims about this being a worthy successor to both Skyrim and the Thief series prove true, although already the social justice warriors are out to spoil it for everyone else by moaning about a lack of representation of X, Y and Z. The story is based on at the beginning of the troubles caused by Martin Hus’ antics at Charles University Prague and the storms caused by the advancing Ottoman Empire of the Turks and their allies, so never mind the fact that X, Y and Z either never came to 15th century Bohemia or if they did were summarily executed on the spot as spies/deviants/both. This was to put it mildly one of history’s ‘rough times’ that was about to get a whole lot rougher.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see what other Simmers think about the game, especially the crafting side which tends to be our favourite bit in between all the hack and slash!

Corruption Within Sims 3 – The SHOCKING Truth! (Or Maybe Not…)

Posted in Uncategorized on February 18, 2018 by themaresnest

xxNearlyPerfectxx run of luck (or rather the lack of it) with their game continues apace:

Charlottesmom and Phoebebebe13 waded in with some of the old standard reasons…

…Karritz and Treynutz gave examples of what can be the source of your discontent (especially in the latter’s case if you pardon the pun)…

… and SimplyJen (Simasaurus09) reiterated the old maxim that if you want to save your save, then save your game!

We think TadOlson’s Sims 3‘s latest post has become corrupted however:

Two hundred words, and no mention of TadOlson’s mods once? Shirley Shome Missteak?

Poor Igazor had to do his own plugs for once!

Can’t get the staff, eh?

When It Comes To Problems, MadameLee Takes The Cake!

Posted in Uncategorized on February 17, 2018 by themaresnest

Over at Rosemow’s Cuddle Teddies, Snuggly Blankets and Warm Cocoa thread on the EA forum, MadameLee’s been complaining about her medical problems (make up your own one-line jokes to that one please!)

Rosemow’s response?

Ever get the feeling someone’s just a teensie-weensie bit pissed off?

And yes Rosemow, old Crazy Anne did say she needed assistance talking to doctors – that still doesn’t mean her parents get a blank cheque to muscle in on all her medical matters, which is the gist of her complaint.

As if this wasn’t bad enough, MadameLee was wanting to undergo matters far rasher…

 

A bacon cake?

However, it became clear that Rosemow wanted her to go and bake a Shut The Fuck Up cake:

Wow.

Hang on a minute – you were the one that started this whole cockamamie thread for people having problems and wanting to share it. If everyone else is allowed to post at times utter pish (sorry, but we for one think those posting nonsense about feeling traumatised and triggered because of something as absurd as, for example, it being the fourth anniversary of the death of their granny’s budgerigar is pure self indulgence), then whatever else we or anyone else thinks of Crazy Anne’s Hill of Beans, she’s as much right to post them on your thread as anyone else, no matter how regular. It’s very late in the day to start picking and choosing what gets in and what doesn’t, or even to suggest a sliding scale of suffering for inclusion.

Thankfully Rosemow recanted, but it’s clear MadameLee’s trying her patience now.

Sim Secret’s Keeping Its Own Pages A Secret!

Another Friday, another screaming foul up courtesy of Prah2010:

Click on this week’s Unposted Secrets link (Sim Secret‘s ‘Have Our Cake And Eat It’ section), and you get this:

Ah, remember the good old days when blogger checked their links before posting?

 

All-American Bumnugget In Spree Shooting No-Longer-Shocking-Shocker

Posted in Uncategorized on February 15, 2018 by themaresnest

Ho hum.

Another day in the USA, another bunch of schoolchildren who will never live to see their prom, graduation, and life beyond the whiteboard.

Killed by a little shit with the so-called ‘civilian’ version of the standard U.S. Military’s assault rifle.

We refer you back to our post of 8th October last year.

May we also refer you to the following two posts elsewhere

One 20th January, the other 21st November 2016 – the year of Baton Rouge and Pulse Orlando had made a dozen of other spree killings using AR-15 or their competitors copycat versions look tame.

A third of all the mass shootings in the world (ie. where at least four people are shot) occur in the United States of America. Not even gun happy Afghanistan, where the twenty different warring clans who have been shooting at one another ever since the invention of the Brown Bess long before the Taliban, ISIS and ‘peace keepers’ turned it into a team event, or the Yeman which turned it into the nation’s most popular participation sport so much it led to civil war, come remotely close.

So dear American readers, how long before you decide enough is enough? When it’s your own child that’s been shot dead and it’s too late?

 

And InfraGreen Tries To Get Sim Secret Bumnuggets To Troll MadameLee Again (What’s Left Of Them!)

Posted in Uncategorized on February 14, 2018 by themaresnest

You can tell when some people are getting desperate for drama when midweek at what’s left of Sim Secret the following appears:

No surprises as to who turned up shortly:

Yep, Trip_Says_Hello aka InfraGreen aka That Shitstirring Trolling Little Cunt From Carl And Pam’s Loony Cult Of Kool Aid Drinkers. Who’da thunk it?

 

Now considering how disinterested the Sims 2 playing Dimblr obsessed remaining members of Sim Secret are towards the EA forum (not enough penis extention mods, you see…), we’ll bet two coneys to a dead dog that the vast majority of these posts about MadameLee have been written by Trip_Says_Hello-InfraGreen in the hope of kicking things off.

She simply can’t help herself: woefully addicted to drama and causing it when there’s not enough for her. More to be pitied than scolded. But not by much.

 

Faytheful Needs An Igazor App For Her Smartphone

Posted in Uncategorized on February 13, 2018 by themaresnest

It would save her having to make posts like this:

 

Quick! Light the Bat-Signal!

Of course, she could simply go to the NRaas Industries website like everyone else…

Everyone else? EVERYONE ELSE? Who the halibuts are you referring to Mares?

Shaddyp, Lauryl!

Igazor as usual turned up within seconds (sort of) to put matters right.

We spoke too soon:

Oh dear. Like the Broadway Musical ‘Holiday Diarrhoea’, looks like this one’s going to run and run…
