SWTOR Animated Gifs

I made these real quick using something called GifCam because I wanted to check out its quality.  It's not too bad, I guess.  I should have Frapsed the scenes to make the gifs 'by hand' and compare but I didn't think of that until it was too late.  The reason there are two of /possessed is because they were made using different settings to compare GifCam settings.  I should have made note of the settings when I saved them, put it in the file name, but I was stupid and I didn't do that.  I'm thinking the difference is one was recorded at 16FPS and one at 33FPS. I also completely forgot about several other settings the program has if you click on Edit/Frame, though I did use it to delete some frames from one gif I was working on...I'm really with it tonight, sheesh.  I'll have to make some more and remember to try out all of the other options.

I Will Hug Him and Squeeze Him and Call Him Awwwww

Thanks to a friend/guildie and her love of listening to podcasts, I finally got a Taun Fawn code!  I’ve been trying to get one since they were introduced so I’m quite happy that she passed it on to me instead of using it for herself, not that I wouldn’t have been happy for her if she had used the code; jealous, but happy.  She did get herself a neat little M8-3R Astromech droid that she likes, at least.

I took a few screenshots of the Fawn with some of my characters.  I don’t know why I did, but I did.  I would have taken them kneeling in front of the Fawn but /kneel is locked to me since I’m playing as ‘preferred’ right now.

The original post of this, which is exactly the same, can be found on my tumblr.

Cooked Kitty, Flaming Kitty, Kitty All Cut Up

I gave in and bought Bad Rats just a little while ago.  I played the demo the other day to check it out and it amused me enough that I decided I wanted it and, come on, at $0.49 it’s worth getting.  The physics may not be great, although I haven’t really noticed any issue with them in the levels I played, and the timer definitely is weird to get a handle on, but the over-the-top cartoon violence is just funny.  I’ve only played about an hour between the demo and the purchased game, but I would still recommend this just for the funny factor; probably not at full price, but definitely at 49 cents.
