    Making my own gin today was surprisingly fun, given that I don't normally drink it.

      @benjamindorsey Not embarrassing for me. :)

        @benjamindorsey Nope. Something I can’t talk about publicly. Because it’s too fucking embarrassing.

          This will be interesting.

            @benjamindorsey A year or so ago I watched the LD of Raiders of the Lost Ark on our projector. It wasn’t pleasant.

              @benjamindorsey It wouldn’t matter. The analogue video looks like garbage on an HDTV.

                @benjamindorsey I’ll still try to sell it. Must be a collector who’ll want it for completeness.

                  @eyes It’s a phone with the SIM pulled out.

                    @benjamindorsey One thing that does annoy me is that I didn’t sell my Disney collector’s edition of the Lion King back when it went for about $400 or so on eBay.

                      @benjamindorsey And the Criterion disc was the director’s cut - I’m not sure that the DVD versions were uncut. It was one of the few films I had on laserdisc that never got a digital replacement. I’m finally getting rid of the LD player… therefore…

                        @zero you and your loud music and baggy trousers. Get off my lawn.

                          @wickedgood I went all-digital with the PS4, because there are no real upsides to sticking to physical media for me. Nintendo should be pushing harder for that, especially given how kids treat discs.

                            @wickedgood Certainly it stops families from buying two consoles and using the same game download on both, which you can do on both Xbox and Playstation.

                              @wickedgood It may not be an issue in practice but it seems to be a sticking point for people.

                                @wickedgood True. That being said, I think a lot of people aren’t getting digital downloads for Nintendo consoles because the games are locked to the hardware instead of the account. At least, GAF gives me that impression. Hopefully they rework it.

                                  @wickedgood I think the Unity engine for PS4 was delayed a bit. I expect to see more things for it pretty soon. Xbone has problems with MS’s stupid parity clause. The sooner they get rid of that the better for users and developers.

                                    @wickedgood I guess we’ll see. Everybody else is supporting indies as well, plus they can play the modern shooty-shooty bang bangs that the kids like.

                                      @wickedgood "No, you don't get it," Edson told the arresting officers. "Those bags are symbols. They stand for bombs." That’s a decent comment.

                                        @wickedgood I don’t like moneyhatting third-party games, so I’d never have been onboard with it. Nintendo really need to stop releasing consoles with last-gen specs. If they can’t get third party support they’ll continue to struggle.

                                          @benjamindorsey Well, the first edition blu-ray was garbage, so I kind of forgot about it.
