Checkpoint: Les Yeux Secs Terribles

Apparently I don’t know what the symptoms of dry eyes are. I thought it simply meant my eyes felt — you know — dry. Apparently, if you feel like there is something in your eye but there’s nothing there when you check, that’s a symptom of dry eyes. I’m sure a lot of it can be attributed to the post-eye surgery recovery but I’m sure the seasonal allergies aren’t helping the cause either.

Metal Gear related puns and jokes are at an all time high at the moment. It’s a byproduct of Metal Gear Solid V’s generally warm reception and how much time people are investing into the game. I must be nearing 70 hours at this point and — for the most part — I’m enjoying my time with the game. I wish Snake was more vocal and I hope they somehow explain why he’s so reserved compared to his previous outings. The likely business reason is that Kiefer Sutherland is an expensive voice talent but I want a story reason.

I didn’t play much outside of MGSV. I dabbled with Rocket League after their most recent patch and I have to say that I’m not sold on the revised ranked matchmaking. They re-introduced 3 vs 3 (Solo) playlist which effectively split the 3 vs 3 user base even further. I’m sure trying to match players from a pool of only 2000 isn’t ideal but they got themselves in that position by splitting the 3 vs 3 pool. I don’t know what the answer to their problems is and thankfully I don’t have to come up with it. But if they don’t sort out their ranked matchmaking woes, I might just stick to unranked playlists so I can play competitive matches.
