    Thank you. Thank you all.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

    Another year has almost wrapped, and I'm once again taking inventory of everything in my life that I'm grateful for. It's been an emotional roller coaster for sure, but that's for another post later on.

    I'd say I don't have the words, but I do, so...

    The top post on r/Halo this morning is evidence of all the store bundles leaked, revealing that you would have to spend a total of $1,035 to unlock everything that is not obtainable by playing.

    Now to do my solemn duty...

    ...of taking this verdict, and ponifying and parodying it in Letters.

    Halo Shotgun Comparison

    Thank you to a longtime friend for helping me confirm that Halo Infinite's shotgun is the first in franchise history to not one-hit kill at point blank range.

    There's one less counter for the sword. Definitely needs a buff.

Extra Life 2021 Informational Post · 3:56pm October 24th

Well, it's been five years since I've last attempted to livestream for 24 hours for the Extra Life charity. With my improved setup, I've decided to do so again.

Seeing as how I have not regularly livestreamed since 2009, last time I set a donation goal of $100, and we ended up smashing that, due to the crazy generosity of some of my readers here, ending our stream at the 18-hour mark with $379.

This time, I'm not sure how foolhardy it is to try and beat that, but for Extra Life 2021, I am once again playing for Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, and my goal is $500.

I will be streaming on YouTube, and will be providing links to both the stream and the Extra Life site where you can donate. I handle no money whatsoever; 100% of your donation goes directly to the hospital.

There's 13 days to go until Game Day, which is Saturday, November 6th, 8:00 AM, and I'm still finalizing what games to play. Current possibilities include:

  • Sonic Delta (Genesis ROM hack combining Sonic 1, 2, and 3&K into one game.)
  • StarCraft II Co-op
  • Tom Clancy's The Division 2
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic
  • Sonic Adventure 2 with Tails in everything
  • Yu-Gi-Oh: Legacy of the Dueliest Link Evolution
  • Hades
  • Halo: The Master Chief Collection

These are just the games I will be playing; my co-streamers who will be helping me make it through the night will be playing their own games as well.

As for the incentive for meeting my goal:

If I meet my lofty goal of $500, I will attempt to eat Joella's 'Fire in Da Hole' chicken tenders. They are made with the incredible heat of the Ghost and Carolina Reaper chili peppers. Not just the tenders, but the bread, pickles, and whatever side comes with it.

If my goal is met before they close (10PM EST, closest location is just down the block), I will attempt it live. If it is met sometime overnight, I will record my attempt for uploading the next day.

Boy, you ca-RAY-zee. Those wings gonna KEEL you. :trollestia:

Despite the point of this charity stream being sick children, I don’t think the point is to make yourself feel miserable, Miles.

I've gotten to the point where I wish that spicy foods would come with their own Scoville ratings, instead of relying on the reputation/Scoville rating of the chili pepper used in the dish. I get the impression that you could say you use Carolina Reaper or ghost pepper, but then use a tiny amount of it, thereby serving something that's less spicy than one would reasonably expect, Then again, I don't expect many places to go through the added expense of measuring the Scoville rating of a finished food product, so that probably wouldn't happen anyway.

That aside, good luck with the event, both in raising money for the hospital and, if you make your goal, enduring the Scovilles of that tenders meal.
