Thought I'd Miss This Month

Yay, Winter is almost over, or I should say; Yay, the cold weather is almost over! Maybe, you never know with Texas. We can have 80F+ in February, which will continue for the next months and suddenly have snow in the middle of April.

The grackles have all come back from their travels and with the new batch of them this year, are a few that became super friendly in only a month and a half, and I'm not even working outside anymore. There's 4 of them now that will take food directly from my hand. Though one of them is the female grackle that I've known for 2 years. Another is a male with an injured right foot, who became friendly very fast. The others got that trusting after seeing the first two approach me that close a few times. I'll try to get a video of them all lined up about a foot in front of me. When I take my breaks and walk outside, it typically only takes up to 10 seconds for them to approach.

People are annoying with it, luckily it's rare though. Every so often there's that person that walks by and must inform me that what I'm doing is dangerous and I could get bitten, and that grackles should be shot. If someone walks by with the latter remark, my usual response is something along the lines of "I save my ammo for another type of biped." Oh I used to be such a nice and reserved person.

The first type of remark is another ignorance laden one, though that one doesn't really upset me. Wild animals can indeed be dangerous and birds carry diseases that we're susceptible to. I'm not too concerned with being bitten though. Not when I observe them being super careful with me. Not all of them are, and I take special care around those ones specifically. With grackles, I've noticed ways to tell if they're going to be careful with me or not based on body language. That and they're fairly consistent. The male grackle I mentioned above with the injured foot is always extra careful to not bite me. The smaller the piece of food I give him, the more careful he is, which is interesting to me.

DT3 Progress
Shit, this blog is about video games, not birds. Wait no, it's about whatever I want.

So DT3 is still going, though the last month or so was a bit slow. A THING DID GET DONE THOUGH.

The most recent level is a fair bit different and touches on things personal to me. It's short, and very simplistic gameplay, but I wanted to give something very different for DT a try.

I'm currently revamping a previous level, it's the last level I need to fix up before I work on the final one. I'd have done it later, but I know if I don't do it now, then I'll later say, "It's fine how it is." and I wasn't really all that satisfied. It isn't taking long though, the changes aren't super drastic, but they've had a good impact on the quality of the content.

Other Stuff
I know I've been quiet lately. There have been a few life changes the last few months that have kept me busy, as well as busy away from the game. I'm fairly certain I'd have the game done by now if not for everything going on, or at least all the content done.

Anyway, I'm not stopping the project for sure. It's almost done and the end is something I've wanted to work on for a long while. I think it's gonna be great.

Also the new Zelda for the WiiU is not coming out in 2015. Though I'm not bothered by that delay at all. I was expecting it.
