Finally getting around to watching Harley Quinn in full on HBO Max rather that hacked up YT clips and it's really good over all. Helped me laugh a lot in these crazy weeks.


 
 

Cocaine Mitch sounds like it has the potential for an Occams band name.

 
 

I know Sterling said it today, but I have been thinking for a while how all these dystopian/apocalyptic games will have to work harder to compete with reality. I'll still allow Deus Ex, Resident Evil, Doom and SMT, it's just they look preferable to today.

 
 

My fangamer t-shirts have been stuck in Arizona for the last 3 weeks. Finally arrived yesterday. Snake: "Kept you waiting, huh?"


 
 

I now have 35 tabletop gaming dice. Got glow-in-the-dark ones to make sure I don't lose them all too quickly. It's also the strategy I took on to not lose guitar picks.

 
 

YouTube discovered you could ban bigots, conspiracy theorists and seditionists as well as remove their content today. I've known this since I moderated FFXI sites.

 
 

Gonna focus on getting Hyrule Warriors and the first Ori game done first, but I've begun inching toward my resolution to familiarize myself with DnD and CC2020 TTRPGs. Got my 5e books today, but man is character creation in BG1 decrepit by contrast.

 
 

Finished Wonder Woman 1984. It was... okay. Just okay. Not Dawn of Justice bad but just kinda eh overall. I'm not mad, but not wowed. Gadot got carried hard by Wiig and Pascal. They were the MVPs.


 
 

If there is an ache inside for something Cyberpunk that functions, Humble Bundle has the old 2020 TTRPG books and novels up for grabs.

 
 

This is an accurate depiction of the Hades gameplay loop at times.


 
 

My first impressions of Disney+ and HBO Max are that I like The Mandolorian and wish Disney+ worked on my TV. HBO Max I will cancel after watching Wonder Woman 1984 and Birds of Prey.

 
 

"We don't allow snowmen here but, okay. He can stay. He looks very polite."


 
 
 
 
 

The 2B minion is a rare drop in the FFXIV Puppet's Bunker YoRHa raid. First time I'd seen the drop, actually. Won the loot roll :D


 
 

At the podiatrist because my front door decided it hated my left big toenail.


 
 
 

Found out there is a trans character in Cyberpunk 2077 and from what I know she's handled well thus far. Still doesn't entirely fix the transphobic stuff outside of her involvement, make the game playable or win back the good faith squandered, though.

 
 

You know, I've put off Deus Ex Mankind Divided forever. This would be a good time to scratch the cyberpunk itch with that instead, or at least after I finish Yakuza: Like a Dragon.


 
 
 

I feel like for everything I like about Cyberpunk there are two things that make it hard to enjoy. And most of them are technical issues, though taking several hours to arrive at a narrative concept that feels true to the genre doesn't help much.

 
 

Please be mindful that what you quick posts here can be seen by people at work. NSFW content should be labeled and placed in the Disqus comments of your quick posts where users can choose how images are displayed. So they don't get fired, y'know?

 
 

Forgot to cancel my Cyberpunk 2077 preorder and now that I've played it on my PS4 Pro I wish I had. Better off waiting to play a fixed version on PS5.


 
 

Can't sleep when I'm excited for something, which is the FFXIV update this week, yet can't stay awake when I want to play it. Body and brain only seem to cooperate at work right now. It's weird how I get frazzled after finishing games.

 
 

I suppose in the FFXIV 5.4 update a corpse should be left well alone. I might finally be able to have something that approaches a Lady Marie of the Astral Clock Tower glamour.


 
 
 

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is my first Yakuza game and I'm pretty happy with it. It's also pretty cool how it goes from goofy moments to serious crime drama to making a good effort to explain how people become marginalized and why they must be protected.


 
 
 

Persona fans claiming Neo TWEWY is a rip-off are gonna lose their minds when they hear about Shin Megami Tensei.
