Gengis Joins A Gang
Gengis woke up today with the "Bad Night's Sleep" perk. This makes Gengis tire more easily throughout the day, and the perk lasts until he sleeps again.
Gengis is going to start a life of crime today, so we eat it hearty meal to start the day off right.
I also got rid of the Floating Duck because it was more of a Grounded Duck than anything. Luke is now our table's centerpiece. Gengis is pleased and I got to take this artsy screenshot.
Gengis also woke up with the "Feeling Lucky" perk again today, and he starts the day off getting the "Exhilarating Shower" perk I mentioned earlier from his brand-new shower. This makes him resist stress a little and also boosts his happiness for half of the day.
Gengis also fiddles with the faucets a little to increase his happiness.
Who says being neurotic has to be all bad?
Gengis is now "Elated". Everything he does now is more effective, and it also does something extra that "Wants" also do, which I'll get to later.
Gengis gives Luke his breakfast too, and leaves to join the mafia.
I know, Gengis. It's hard leaving Luke to take care of himself, but you'll pull through.
Fresh out of tears, Gengis walks by his garden, which seems to be doing well. We have some extra time to spare so let's tend our plants while we're here.
The neighb--I mean, Gengis's
grapes are doing pretty well too. Gardening is a fairly easy skill to master because everything you do constantly gives you experience, and it has some pretty nifty stuff like secret plants and special fruits or veggies that also restore some needs or other goodies.
Besides, the added dirt to his clothes will make Gengis look like he just got done grave-robbing. That'll make a good first impression to the mob.
Whoop! Mail call! Boy, this guy is just so excited to give us some bills--
Wow! What a jerk!
The mailbox is right there! Why would you do that!?
Gengis, of course, doesn't care about this guy going postal over the postal.
As Gengis finishes up gardening, the mailman leaves just as fast as he appears.
This paperboy acts more professional that than idiot!
Well, he does also looks more mature than Gengis riding his bike to work, to be fair.
Oh hey, it's that guy we shoved off of the treadmill the other day.
This game does a really good job of conveying a living, breathing world. It's pretty nice like that.
So this is where the mob hides out.
Gengis lands a job as a Decoy, which is appropriate, seeing as his giant gut would make a pretty good meat-shield from bullets.
This picture isn't related to that in any way, but I thought Gengis looked just awesome in this shot.
Let's see what the department store has in, uh, store.
Gengis bought a painting for 180 dollars, the most expensive painting there. We'll frame it and hang it up tomorrow.
You know, we should have Gengis talk to the girl who works at the counter, since we come here so often.
Using his amazing deduction skills, Gengis managed to discover she works as a clerk at the local department store, but only after asking first.
Oh, and her name is Connie.
They got friendly pretty fast, and start trading some local gossip.
Aw, that's cute. Gengis is making friends.
...And Gengis ruins the moment by talking about how NASA's rockets are fueled by the tears of crying children and mayonnaise.
Connie's pretty patient, though. She actually compliments Gengis on his freakishness.
Oh, stop being a stuck-up snob, Gengis. If she can put up with your insanity, you can at least listen to her talk about her new pool.
Well, now I know why Connie's so understanding of Gengis, she's just as insane as him.
Hey, look who it is.
It's Dennis again. Looks like he's running from something.
Noticing Dennis, Gengis is reminded of his new job and starts bragging about him being in the mafia.
Real smart there, Gengis. I get my corporal foot to kick Gengis's virtual butt back to his house before he makes things any worse for himself.
I still can't believe that mailman.
Well, the bills are paid.
Bills come every Tuesday and Thursday. They increase in price the more time you spend at home and the more objects you have, with objects requiring plumbing and electricity adding to the cash needed more than other objects.
Just in case you still live in your parent's basements and don't know the basics of our own society.
Well, well! A discount class on gardening!
When you go to a class, you get a massive increase in the respective skill the class is for. The only downside: it's a bit pricey, but we found a discount class. So let's take the opportunity while we've still got it.
Although I have doubts that a building producing that much pollution can hold a respectable gardening class.
Wow, what a dump.
Wait, what's that?
Score! The most expensive sound system in the game! Why would somebody throw something like this away?
Oh. Because it's broken beyond repair.
Some objects can break when you use them. You can either call a repairman or repair it yourself. But if you fail to repair it upon attempting to, it becomes "broken beyond repair" and you have to buy a new one.
Well, we've got nothing better to do, so let's invite our friend Connie to the local club.
Uh, Connie. Gengis is over...uh, nevermind.
This is the local bar. Originally it was just a rather empty building with only a bunch of Foosball tables, so I made some changes and turned it into a bar.
Wow, the bartender's quite the show off, but it's pretty impressive.
Gengis starts off the conversation with his love for The Legend of Zelda.
Then politely demands a nice drink for himself and Connie in exchange for him not breaking the bartender's kneecaps.
Well, time to drink up.
Sheesh, Gengis. You've got to work tomorrow, and you're drinking like a depressed stockbroker. And on a Tuesday, no less.
Remember when I said the bartender was impressive?
Yeah, no so much anymore.
With that mistake, the bartender decides to end happy hour.
Connie and Gengis then leave the building where Gengis literally vomits right in front of Connie. I couldn't get a screencap, but Connie understandably decided to end the outing there, and also lost some relationship points with Gengis...to the point where they had a falling out on the very first day they became friends! That's a new record.
Because of Connie ending their short friendship, and also because the outing ended badly, Gengis is now depressed.
I'd explain what it does, but I really can't stand looking at poor Gengis's face, so let's just let him sleep in peace for now.
Well, Gengis. Time to cry yourself to sleep. Try not to have any bad nightmares or get a hangover in the morning, you've got work tomorrow.
If you have any suggestions on how Gengis should spend tomorrow, additions or changes in his clothing or house, or anything else just post them in this thread.
