I think that's an improvement over the 2016 we actually got.

2016 really was a bitch in all ways. Seems like its trying to take Carrie Fisher as it's finale.

Public Service Announcement: There is a playable demo of Nier: Automata on PS4 right now.

That is all.

I got together with my folks, and we made Chinese Food (we usually get Chinese take-out, but my folks haven't been impressed with the food in the area since our favorite place closed). Then we watched the 1st Hobbit movie, partially to give me time for the alcohol to wear off. :)

Conversely, there was much partying over here.

2016 was properly buried.

No partying for me, have had this stomach flu for 3-4 days and it's just starting to get better. Some soup the other day, started with solid food today. Weak as kitten lol. Great way to end that bloody year though, worshipping the porcelaine god.

Let's hope for a great 2017!

Indeed. Very appropriate.

Don't you hate when something works perfect in the development platform but fails when you move it to another one? Right now I have a game engine that is perfect in Linux but fails on Windows. I hate it.

Damned Windows. It is truly the decrepit embodiment of evil. Windows can go to hell.

Yeah, that is super frustrating. The only real easy way around it is to have dedicated machines for each platform and try your builds on all of them frequently. Otherwise it's just headache-central. :]
