Just went out with my co-workers for dinner at Harbour 60 and have a good time there. Got myself a filet mignon and baked alaska for dessert. Not the type of restaurant I go out to eat but like to treat myself to a fancy place to eat once a while.

Yeah sorry about no March meetup. I was trying to see if I'd be free these weekends but it's not the case. Easter weekend sounds fine but I might be forgetting something going down.

That's why I always keep a set of keys or screwdrivers around me. It's become a habit that I will first touch the metal surface with those to discharge myself. It's mostly the arcing that hurts, so by putting a metal object as a buffer, I move the spark somewhere else.

apparently it's not REALLY an escape room

it sounds more like a class project where you're partnered with the people sitting at your table. you only have 1 hour to finish, then at the end they reveal the solutions.

I hear the puzzles are pretty good but the thing overall is a bit underwhelming

I don't have the ability to play the JP version unfortunately. Double Cross hasn't even been announced for us NA peasants yet.

I almost expect it to be upgraded to the Switch along with a 3DS release like MH3U. Probably an announcement at E3.

Series fatigue. It was almost the old Ubisoft model.

Though they never released MonHun Stories here...

That's what I'm expecting as well. Odds are I'll buy the switch once MHXX gets announced for it. I think MH is the only series I've ever double dipped on. MHX, MHGen, MHXX, MHGU when it gets announced.

It's definitely the fatigue, I feel it too at times but when that happens I'll go play another game and come back to MH later and get hooked again.

They really need to add something REALLY big to MH5 or else I can't see it holding peoples attention for a long time.

:edit:

I'm currently playing as Brave CB and i'm enjoying it a lot. My only complaint is the time it takes to ramp up the dps like charging the phials and getting into Brave mode but when you get into Brave mode tho.. it's glorious!

Here's an article with impressions from people who went through the Zelda escape room.
http://www.theverge.com/2017/1/31/14...zzle-ganondorf

It's not your typical escape room with a group trapped in a small confined space or a series of confined spaces, but you're still solving puzzles albeit in a much larger space with different sections and actors cosplaying as different races from the Zelda lore.

Setting up a limited-time, escape room tour and trying to get as many people participating doesn't make much sense financially and logistically with the usual escape room locations that have only a handful of rooms that can be used by one group at a time per room.

The authors of the above article had fun and seemed satisfied. Not sure if underwhelming would be the general feeling among most people who have already experienced the Zelda escape room. Out of the 15 groups that participated during the session attended by the link's author, only three groups succeeded and won plastic master swords.

EDIT:

http://venturebeat.com/2017/02/20/th...-classic-game/

Here's another article with impressions. This author hoped for a bit more in terms of production value, and described more issues than my first link. However, he understood the limitations and logistics of a touring escape room.

But Defenders of the Triforce was a lot of fun. It played to the Zelda fan in me, and while it wasn’t perfect — or the best room escape I’ve done — it was still an enjoyable night out, and something Zelda fans should check out as it travels.

Oh, and we were one of only four teams to actually complete the game. So take that, Ganon.

Tomorrow morning, the following five locations should still have stock:

15 York Street (I don't know why they have so much, but they pretty much have all of it atm)
1230 Dundas St. W
10 Scrivener Square
420 Spadina Road
2 Cooper Street (these last two don't have much left, though)

I'm drinking another bottle of it as I post. This shit is so good, goddamn.

I was about to come back to this thread all excited to post about more whisky because the LCBO just got Macallan 12 Yr. Double Oak and when was the last time we saw age statement Macallan but I just tried some so... nevermind.

It wasn't that good. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

HOWEVER!

Sour beer news!

Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René is now back in stock.
Also, we just got bottles of Citra Grove from Bench Brewing. It's a kettle sour brewed with citra hops. High in acidity, nice citrus lemon flavors, very tart, very lush. Very nice beer.
