Just thought I'd mention again:

I have a FREE or Pay What You Want .pdf copy of my Snowflakes Colouring Book available here:

:gumroad: gumroad.com/l/hTdbD

They're easy to print out and colour to your heart's content!

The other day the starlings and flickers were visiting, too, but Aila kept scaring them away. 🙄 :da_sweat:

Currently at my bird feeder:

Chickadees, bushtits, and house finches. 🥰

:chickadee:

It came! @Squishy got her Christmas presents, a new cave with a dripping waterfall inside, and a new ledge with a hidey-hole inside it. :da_boogie:

She spent a great deal of time today exploring her new terrarium layout, then got *very* interested in the lights on our Christmas tree, which is right next to her.

I love the lights reflected in her eyes. :da_love:

[Marked sensitive for reptile/lizard.]

I hope everyone out there who celebrates Hanukkah has a lovely one, full of love and light.

(I know it's estimated they live 10-20 years, with some living as long as 30+ years, I just joke about it because back when I first got her in 2011 everywhere said "It's too soon since they've first entered the pet trade for us to say how long they live in captivity". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

@Squishy turned 10 years old this summer. I've always tried to treat her as well as I've possibly been able to, but I'm determined to treat her like a queen from now on.

How long do crested geckos live for, again? Who even knows?? :da_sweat:

Decided to get one of these for @Squishy for Christmas. She deserves nice things too. :squishygecko:

It's the Zilla Spring Cave: mypetparadise.ca/zilla-spring-

He fried so hard, and got so far
In the end, it doesn't even batter

Not me getting Ed Wynn and Ed Wood mixed up :oh_no:

Just wanted to share a couple pretty sims I made recently. ^^

"Blacksad: Under the Skin" game rambling 

Anyway, I'll stop ragging on it now. ^^; Just… wow. I honestly don't know how it was something the developers thought was appropriate to release for sale on the Switch.

I wish the Switch offered refunds… :\

"Blacksad: Under the Skin" game rambling 

I'll also mention: The tutorial was SO aggravating. It would constantly interrupt everything and take forever to click through.

There are things you interact with and you focus on them for a set amount of time; you can't back out. So if you accidentally interact with something you're stuck staring at it for a few long seconds before you can move on.

And something seemed up with the character's facial expressions? Just kind of flat and confusing? 🤔

"Blacksad: Under the Skin" game rambling 

The tone was also a little strange, but granted I haven't played it long enough to really get a sense of it. I think it's trying to be gritty and dark, but the slowness and texture/resolution issues just make it seem a little… flat.

I'm glad it was so heavily discounted. It would have sucked to waste more money on such a shitty port.

I'll have to pick up the comics some day, though, get into it for real. ^^ I've always wanted to.

"Blacksad: Under the Skin" game rambling 

There are moments when the camera zooms in on a photograph on a character's desk, and Blacksad says something about how sweet the sentiment of the photo is…

…but it's just a confusing mess of extremely low-res highly-artifacted pixels.

You walk incredibly slowly, and your movements are not precise. I got stuck on things many times. And then there are the loading times… interminably long, and constant. >__<

"Blacksad: Under the Skin" game rambling 

I decided to pick up the game "Blacksad: Under the Skin" when it was on sale on the Switch a few days ago. I tried to play some of it recently, and… wow. It is possibly the worst port of a game I've ever seen.

At least, I sincerely hope it's better on its native platforms… on the Switch it was achingly slow, loading times were severe, and half the time the textures weren't more than a soupy blur.

It's such a shame, I really wanted to like it!

To my lovely users here at comicscamp.club:

Don't worry, the tr*mp domains have been blocked. If you hear of anything else along these lines, let me know, and I will nuke them to hell. :da_ahoy:

None of that shite here, please and thank you. :da_cuddle:

TIL there are different varieties of dark-eyed juncos! We get a lot of the oregon variety around here, but I think the ones I saw today were a sub-species called "cismontanus". ^^

My mum also gets a lot of the "slate-coloured" variety out where she is in the interior.

Aww, just saw a dark-eyed junco at my feeder! I know they're everywhere, but that's the first time I've seen them visiting my feeder set-up. ^^

My feeder life list is currently:
- Chickadees
- House sparrows
- House finches
- Anna's hummingbirds
- Red-breasted nuthatches
- Dark-eyed juncos
- Downy woodpeckers
- Northern flickers

In anticipation of the new AC:NH content I decided to reset my island last night. It only took me 27 restarts to get my girl Reneigh as one of my starting villagers. :da_boogie:

Also, here's how the fruit distribution worked out:

Cherries: IIII\
Oranges: III
Peaches: IIII\IIII
Apples: IIII
Pears: IIII\I

I was hoping for pears, but I got peaches. Ah well! ^^
