A little? Those aren't pups, they are Saturnalia. Have you been time travelling again, Carla?

Usually, I'll kick back and read as I enjoy it so much. Very relaxing.

I learned that language by playing Prince of Persia.

I'm having a bit of trouble with the video games part of that sentence, since I have pretty much one of the cheapest laptops available, but hey... I still fave both Fallout and Fallout 2 - plus the wonderful new game from the old folks, Thimbleweed Park, which I totally recommend for any of the LucasArts fans.

I have most of my game consoles like my PS2, Ps3, and Ps4 as well as my GameCube, and my trusty gaming PC. :P

If you want cheapo laptops that play nothing, get an Asus F502CA. I can't even play Vice City right lol.

I have an ASUS, but I went for the energy saving rather than playing capability, since I was just very, very under the budget and... Yeah... 4/6 TDP.

Well old games like GTA 3 and VC are expected to run weird on high end PCs, and such. But, can't rule out bad ports.

Saints Row 2 on my laptop, runs a bit fast, and I can't have it on anything higher than the lowest graphical setting.

I'll have to bring up the specs later.

This is a bloody Celeron with the boost option, so... It's rather low end. But GTA III runs pretty decently, it's the new Intel integrated (copied AMD's philosophy) 500-series chips that are surprisingly decent for the older games.

The price levels are quite a bit higher over here, because shipping stuff to Finland takes quite a lot more effort. I'm completely out-gunned here. It's the location, location, location - same that goes with the restaurants.

Don't I know it. Living out here in Italy, you'd expect it to be easy to ship, but no. Taxes on exports and imports kill me. Not as bad as I hear it is in Brazil and Australia though, they are EXPENSIVE when it comes to video games, as with anything else.

Well, the only good part of living in Finland is that we have a straight shipping route to Germany, which is pretty much the central hub, when it comes to electronics and stuff like games. Also, GOG (Good Old Games) - you should check it out, if you're interested in stuff and other stuff...

GOG is great! I've checked them out before. Lots of good games like RollerCoaster Tycoon, and such. I gotta figure out DOS Box though, lots of good 90s PC games, but can only play through that on Windows 7 and above.

Yeah, I have got a lot of games - such as the said first two Fallouts - from them. I found it funny in early 2000's, when I had a copy of Indy Car Racing (I guess it was about 1989 game), and they hadn't made any modificatons to it. It ran nicely, about a thousand times too fast.

And since this runs GTA III just fine, I wouldn't be amazed, if Vice City couldn't get done as well.

Ehh. I'm sure even the nicest person on earth would go a little bit crazy if someone employed 5027 ways to make them angry.

But I'll take your word for it, since you're (probably) still alive.

Loki is the real victim. Poor misunderstood trickster god. (says the internet)

No loves for me, love. Fair enough. I'm a stupid trickster myself (except when it comes to military stuff and aliens and well... Weird stuff.)

Stay in bed, listening to music and reading. Other times I write stuff, come here or see Series or a movie.
