Despite not being sick (yet), I also cleared out some videos I intended to watch. I feel like I'm making progress. I'm also quite happy that I finally wrapped up Mass Effect Andromeda. Tetraninja's walkthrough was 74 videos long.

As soon as I got hold of the blowdryer, the dog flipped on his back, as if he was thinking 'Nooooo, please nooooo!' rofl He was lucky this time, because it's sunny outside.

Ohnoes gonk My brother is on a holiday right now and he also left feeling ill. I really hope he isn't sick during his stay in Greece/Bulgaria. Because that will ruin the whole thing.

I watched Tetraninja's review - and also his review on Horizon Zero Dawn (he didn't mention anything about the fact that it's a good thing that there's more main female characters in games, meaning not of the busty type). But I can't help comparing the graphics of the two games. Mass Effect Andromeda does a rather poor job when it comes to facial animations. The eyes look so dead and unnatural gonk They could have learned from Horizon Zero Dawn. Both games put the main story on hold for a long time, reserving most of the action for the end. If you're playing the game yourself and you have a sense of progress and you love the environment and the gameplay and the characters it doesn't matter so much, but if you're watching a walkthrough it's just a bit lenghty and repetitive.

You should try romancing Reyes.

I reached the ME Andromeda finale. I don't want to spoil anything, but I'm pretty sure I won't spoil anything by saying that 'they made the same mistake as Beyond Two Souls'. I'm pretty sure that leaves you clueless rofl Anyways, my favorite mission was still the one I mentioned before: one in which you have to make an important choice. The final mission was not that good. But I hope you'll enjoy playing the endgame nonetheless.
What would have been funny for the finale (no this did not happen): a spaceship battle (there are no spaceships battles in the game at all, are there? ) and if you lose, you have to start all over again rofl Kind of like Undertale.

Some more glitches: mouths moving without speech.
I'm pretty sure TetraNinja played an early release version of the game and he made his own review, which I haven't watched yet, but I'm pretty sure it will be downright negative. But since he loves Mass Effect, I'm sure he enjoyed it nonetheless. At least he finished the game. A person in the comment said that Brad had quit playing. Brad does start lots of games he never finishes.

Thankfully the weather is looking brighter again. We can expect a bunch of non-rain days with higher temperatures (perhaps even reaching the 20 degrees Celsius in the weekend).
But I have to admit that I would have liked some heating in my room in the past few days. I didn't yet, because I decided to opt for a warm sweater. It is still September after all..

Some more Mass Effect glitches spotted:
Two guys fighting in the background during an NPC conversation xD It was ridiculous. But also rather funny (and distracting).
One of the quests got stuck. The icon was still there, even though he had completed it.
TetraNinja also complained about all the unnecessary traveling in the endgame (planet hop after planet hop). Btw I haven't reached the finale just yet, but I'm getting close.

And.. I think Vetra is too grown up for Ryder. It doesn't seem to be the perfect match, that's for sure. He's too young and inexperienced.
I also think that the fighting system is mwah. It's so repetitive. TetraNinja calls it 'Dash and smash, dash and smash'. Because indeed that's all you do. You move in (teleport-ish) and then smash the ground (aoe attack), then move back and shoot. Wait for the cooldown of that skill and move in again. It's a bit boring. There's not enough cool comparable skills I guess...

Quote TetraNinja (when he summarized the main mission up to that point): 'Hey, my story is still better than Twilight'

I just returned home from another sheepdog training session mrgreen And the dog did surprisingly well. He was allowed off leash again.

Basically for the first exercise I have to walk in between the dog and the sheep (sheep standing still) and make the dog move around the sheep in certain directions (clockwise Come by and counterclockwise Away) and have him lie down occasionally when I say so (I need to have him under control/be able to stop him). At the same time I have to keep the dog at a certain distance from the sheep - he's not allowed to charge in. And I have to keep the dog interested in the sheep. Which I find the most challenging part at the moment. Zeno doesn't seem to be too keen on running laps around the sheep 'for no reason' Because he doesn't really have that total focus/obsession with the sheep like the other dogs do. = those dogs have trouble stopping, my dog has more trouble to remain interested.
Zeno was very easy to stop = my 'lie down' commands worked really well. And the dog trainer was very impressed, especially because I've always struggled with that command (for months and months and I feel like I still do sometimes). He was very positive.
Because Zeno was only semi-interested in the sheep, he turned his 'I'm gonna try tons of different things' switch on rofl Yeah I admit it was funny. I noticed that quite quickly and told the dog trainer and he saw it too. He'd move away and sniff. He spotted one of the trainer's dogs and went for a sniff (thankfully his dogs totally ignore Zeno = Zeno will go back to what he was doing). He almost went to say hello at the woman sitting at the coffee table corner. But I was able to get him back to the job.
The dog trainer said that the running lap thing will be fine with time.

Then there was another exercise (which I repeated twice). I & the dog had to remain in a certain (12 o'clock) position with moving sheep. So I'm walking in front of the sheep and the sheep walk along with me, while the dog has to stay right behind the sheep and 'lie down' & 'walk on' (= approach the sheep) on command. As soon as the dog trainer walked away (like: good luck kthxbye rofl ) it just gave a truly mighty feeling that the dog would actually listen with moving sheep eek Like omg he's lying down rofl And 'omg he's walking when I tell him to'. I must say I was a bit impressed myself. It was actually harder to get the dog to walk (the trainer allowed me to use 'whatever' to get him to walk the first time, after that he caught on VERY quickly). Zeno seemed to understand what was expected of him and he seemed more focused on me than on the sheep (or anything else for that matter). It was wonderful. I had more trouble witht he sheep (little tanks rofl seriously.. it's tough to walk in a straight line).

All in all I truly can't complain and the dog trainer was very optimistic too. mrgreen I'm surprised Zeno could do all that off leash. On top of that in the end when I called him to me, he did nicely come straight to me too. And he didn't whine/bark when he was waiting for our turn on the sidelines. Victory!

I don't know if Ryder's team mates will start firing their weapons for no reason. But that Dragon Age Inquisition example sounds hilarious.

Just because you don't feel your tooth ache all the time, doesn't mean the infection isn't there. When they pulled my wisdom teeth at the hospital they also removed an infection despite me not being bothered by the teeth at all. It can be lurking there.

rofl Cheese umbrella. That sounds kind of gross actually. rofl

I ordered a 2nd hand coat on the internet, on the same website I visit quite frequently for books and dog stuff. It should arrive tomorrow.. and I just hope it fits perfectly, otherwise it will be such a waste of money It's a gamble. If it's a success I'll consider buying more 2nd hand stuff (like a shoulder bag I desperately need). It's just so difficult to find something I like in 'common stores' (like those basic earrings for example). There's just more choice online. Lots of 2nd hand products have never been used. Books never been read for instance, but also clothes that people had lying around with the price tag still on it.

I went to the vet's just now and the waiting room was stuffed with people and their pets gonk I've never seen it this full, it was insane.
And of course I had to be sitting right next to a woman who totally supports the positive training method gonk The things she had to say about the dog trainer.... goodness gracious...

It's brilliant how the vet just takes his time and chats with every single client, not allowing himself to be bothered by time pressure at all. People will just wait anyways. With me he started talking about the woman who'd been fined because she peed in a park/on a street because there were no toilets. The judge had said she should have used a man's latrine. Yeah... how did the judge picture that?! The vet said that the judge was probably a man (it was). Basically there are lots of public toilets in Amsterdam, but only very few for women and if you've gotta go very badly being a woman, you're in trouble.
I also asked about the dog's food and his fartiness and he suggested to give the dog some yoghurt - it could help. I might try that. Btw I took the cats to the vet, not the dog today. But the cats were just for their yearly shots and they were in perfect health. He also thought I shouldn't be bothered about the dog being a light weight, because it was the same with people (and he used me as an example - I don't consider myself a light weight, but fine). I couldn't help feeling bad for his assistent. I guess I'm not very good at accepting myself nor the dog the way we are xD
