Cook, Serve, Delicious 2

Cook, Serve, Delicious 2 came out on steam a few days ago and I find myself in a pickle. I still haven't finished Persona 5. It's not that the game isn't good, It's that I've clocked in 80 hours into the game with another 20 to go and I'm getting a bit fatigued. I really want to see the ending, but honestly at the 60 hour mark I start to float away from games. 20 hours is the perfect length for a game IMO. It's just better when I have a hope of beating a game in a weekend.

Anyway! Cook, Serve Delicious (henceforth CSD). I knew the second game was coming out a while ago and I was super excited because I have put an embarrassing amount of hours into a game that's very much casual and if it wasn't go complex as far as inputs, would be very much at home in the mobile arena.

I happen to love management games, but it's hard to find one without a crapton of crafting which I am less a fan of (I don't get Minecraft, sorry). CSD reminds me a lot of Diner Dash which is another game I played for an embarrassing amount of hours. CSD has a lot more inputs going at the higher levels and it's can be a stressful game to a lot of people. Weirdly though, I find it a really zen game. At a certain point you have to stop thinking and just react to whatever's happening. There is no planning, there is only doing. In that way, it reminds me a lot of Plants vs Zombies (which I have beaten 10+ times >_> Don't judgement me. I love that game)

I just of wish there were more casual games in this vein. I like management games and I like strategy games, but some times I don't want to play a game with a lot of overhead. A lot of those games if you walk away for a month and come back it's like, "What was I doing? How do I play?", but with CSD it's more about getting your lightning quick reflexes back. How to play is always obvious.

Currently I'm resisting buying it. I'm not going to have time to play anytime soon. I'm entering the hell time at my job, but ARGH, I want to play it so badly. I don't know why I'm lying to myself though, I'll probably own the game by the end of this week lol. Then I'll play it for like 5 hours and not play it again until the new year.

The sign-ups glows white on the computer tonight
Not a pinch hit to be seen.
A kingdom of tags and offers,
and it looks like I'm PumpkinKing
The AO3 is howling cause Yuletide's also running now
Couldn't leave them open;
Heaven knows it's time
Don't leave it open,
don't let them see
Be the good mod you always have to be
Hit close, don't feel,
don't let them know
Well now they know
Close sign-ups, close sign-ups
Can't wait for it anymore
Close sign-ups, close sign-ups
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care
if they're a pinch hit
Let AO3 match them.
Being a pinch hit never bothered me anyway
 
tldr: Sign-ups are closed

3 Weeks To Go

Or two weeks and six days, rather. The countdown is still visible here. All pinch hits are currently claimed, but the pinch hit list is always open for volunteers, as is the beta reader list. And do not forget to double- (or triple-)check your Dear Creator letters to make certain they are unlocked and readable. ... In short, same song and dance as before, but keep those tap shoes tapping. :-)

Nominations Queries Post One

We have been working on the tag set for 36 hours, and the number of individual fandom nominations has gone down from 5058 to 3086. There are 1076 approved fandoms now in the tag set*.


Please help us with the following issues and queries!

Wheel of Time - Robert Jordan - Both Elan Morin Tedroni and Ishamael | Moridin are nominated; other Forsaken are nominated with their original names. Please either explain why you think they should be separated out, or confirm we can approve both tags as Elan Morin Tedroni.

Expert Judgment on Markers to Deter Inadvertent Human Intrusion... - Sandia Labs - As far as we can tell, Color Changing Cat is not actually from this canon, but a different exercise in considering the problems of long-term nuclear waste storage - see http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_eye/2014/05/14/_99_percent_invisible_by_roman_mars_designing_warning_symbols_for_the_nation.html. Could you please let us know if we’ve missed the cats, or if there’s another reason you believe they should be included.


Ensemble characters
We will accept labels like “the Council” or “the hunters” for characters in cases where the ensemble does not have different distinct characters in it. For the following fandoms, please either confirm that there are no distinct characters in the group, or pick a single character out of the group you’ve nominated.

  • Captive Prince - C. S. Pacat: Veretian Council

  • The Darkness (Comics): Darklings (The Darkness)

  • 終末のイゼッタ | Shuumatsu no Izetta | Izetta: The Last Witch (Anime): The Royal Guard


All Media Types fandoms
We need clarification from the person (or people) who nominated the following fandoms. Please specify a single version of the canon and provide a link to your nominations page so we can confirm the nomination. If these aren't answered, the fandoms will be rejected:
  • Captain Scarlet - All Media Types, characters: Adam Svenson | Captain Blue, Charles Gray | Colonel White, Conrad Turner | Captain Black, Paul Metcalfe | Captain Scarlet

  • Gone With the Wind - All Media Types, characters: Belle Watling, Careen O'Hara, Mammy, Melanie Hamilton (Gone with the Wind - All Media Types)

  • Goosebumps - All Media Types, characters: Cooper Holmes (The Barking Ghost), Drew Brockman (Attack of the Jack-O-Lanterns), Ginger Wald (The Beast From the East), Michael Webster (The Cuckoo Clock of Doom)

  • The Martian - All Media Types, characters: Beth Johanssen, Chris Beck, Mark Watney (The Martian - All Media Types)

  • A Room With a View - All Media Types, characters: Charlotte Bartlett, Eleanor Lavish

  • The Witches of Eastwick - All Media Types, characters: Alexandra Medford, Darryl Van Horne, Jane Spofford, Sukie Ridgemont


If you are commenting about your own nomination to say what you would like done with characters or fandoms, please link your nominations page! It is the page you get by clicking ‘My Nominations’ from the tag set.

If you notice any problems with your approved nominations - mis-spellings, etc - feel free to comment on this post.


*(NB: that’s not because we rejected ~900, but because 5058 and 3086 are totals of how often the fandom slot was filled out by nominators - whether or not they nominated the same fandom. When we approve a fandom that was nominated by two people, the total number of fandom nominations goes down by 2, and the approved fandom total goes up by 1.)
