I was teasing Brando when he finished Bioshock2. Right at the end of the game, where you enter the area that cuts to the ending scene, He was swimming after corpses in the water to loot them.

TO be fair, I am an endless explorer kinda gal. If there's an area I can go you can bet I'll go there. Or find a way in somewhere I am not meant to go.

Skyrim was the first game I played that I could go everywhere and anywhere at all times and it took me a good hour of playing to understand that. When you escape Helgen after the dragon attack and go to Riverwood I just naturally assumed you couldn't walk off the dirt path. When I found out that not only could you, but you could tell the plot line to go suck your sweet booty I was released from the confines of my prison and was truly free that day.

Hair color's difficult. My best go was Manic Panic in Ultra Violet; it gave me a lovely, rich purple color. However, it does fade to more of a blue rather than a red.

I've been dying my hair various colors for years and no matter what I do or what color I dye it within 6 months it's completely faded to the same sandy blonde.
That's not even my natural hair color. My hair color is like, light brown. So it's not washing all out or anything.

Emmers aint' got time for that.

IDK - there's just something about the whole idea of people living in an elegant underwater city practicing objectivism and thinking so highly of themselves while slowly turning into slug-drug-addled monsters that I find kind of hilarious.
I definetly see the early parts of BS1 being SPOOKY SCARY, but once you CAN SHOOT BEES and win Big Daddy's over with the power of WUV, the game gets a little silly. There's some horror elements in Infinite that are also creepy, but never nothing scare inducing. At least IMO.

As for cash monies in videya, it depends. I like to drop $$ for max upgrades. Case in point- Saints Row 4. UPGRADE EVERYTHING SO I CAN GIVE GOES FAST PUNCHES, WEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Six months? Well yeah, it'll be totally faded out by then, they're only meant to last 6-8 weeks!

I usually go for a deep violet. No idea what brand it is when I get it done at salons. Speaking of which, I'm sitting around with a dye-covered head with my phone for entertainment. Fifteen minutes and I get to get this darn shower cap off. It doesn't matter how useful they are, shower caps are still the epitome of stupid-looking.

Well... why not? I mean, I dream that sort of thing on the regular and I am neither actively dying nor an artistic genius.

All right, that sounds amazing, and I would play that in a second.

I only agree with that when it's not paired with a business suit. I never understood the fedora and jeans trend, it just looks weird and mismatched. Especially with the cheapo hats. Bowlers, on the other hand, I can't think of anything they actually look good with.

99% of people who wear fedoras are on my shit list. The only human being I can think of that pulls of a fedora is Johnny Depp.

I have a couple of fedoras. I wear them with whatever I feel like wearing them with. They look great on me. I'm like Sarah Bernhardt. Exactly like Sarah Bernhardt.

I don't care what anyone says, open world games are my absolute favorite. I am rarely that interested in the main plot and would rather be able to go off on my own tangents. I WON'T FOLLOW YOUR SUCKY MAIN STORY LINE JUST BECAUSE YOU TELL ME. I GO WHERE I WANT. I'M LIKE THE WIND. NONCONFORMIST 4 LYFE.

In video games, as in real life, I am a terrible hoarder and always loot/gather/carry/store way more than I will ever possibly need. And then I suddenly drop massive amounts of gold on a nice house or rare books or special boots or the prettiest horse, also just like real life.

CHris, you know your birthday falls on the same day as my mom's and sister's and usually Little Dude's birthday party and whatnot, so let's just accept that you will always be way down on my list of obligatory birthday wishes the day of.
