Watching the new FMP made me realize how little I remember about FMP.
I hope they trickle down some info at the start because I'm pretty lost about the plot already =/

Good luck with this. They're bumrushing the plot and they already skipped some filler (with the only detail of consequence being the end of the already barely there love triangle between Sousuke, Kaname and Tessa).


At least I'm happy that they're trying to keep it set in its original time period, given how anachronistic some of the future tech ends up being compared to what we got today.

Yeah, episode 2 bumrushed the plot even more so I think I'm out of luck here.

I was never really enamored with Steins Gate (I didn't hate it or anything just say a 7/10). Maybe I did it all wrong.

I'm probably going to give this game a go around once I've dusted off Tales of Beseria and Whys VIII.

Yeah... glad you did that edit. It was pretty tactless prior.

Today there was an online quiz/contest throughout the entire corporation.
I hacked the thing and made myself #1 by a crazy amount. It was ridiculously easy.
Like, I'm not even a hacker at all, I just know a bit about web services and servers (and even then... I'm way worst than people who studied that stuff or do it for a living / hobby)

It lasted for a while and eventually someone went and kinda fixed it. They lowered me, but I'm still #2 because I guess they didn't spot the other modification I did to my score.

Oh well, if I somehow don't get beaten, I'll refuse the prize.
I'm pretty sure the #1 spot is also someone who cheated because that score looks about as legit as mine.

(Yes, this is why you can't have nice things)

Actually a Youtube this time.

Japan is such the promised land that even their ads are more interesting than most TV series here.

It's not a Youtube, but it's a video.

Scroll down a bit and look at the accident that happened today (truck hit overpass, no casualty)
It's amazing to see the problem right at the start and then just wait for the trainwreck.

Credit card company mails me three identical notices that they've acknowledged and updated my change in address.... all three of them were addressed to my old residence.

It's always a question of "Am I dealing with stupidity, incompetence or laziness."
Although as opposed to the time/money/quality triangle, here, it's possible to be all 3.

Shit... would you look at the date. About time I do this.

Feels like I don't know much this season because there's a lot of long running anime I've never cared about (WIXOSS, HS DD, Beyblade, Aikatsu... etc.)

https://www.livechart.me/spring-2018/tv

Shokugeki no Souma (season 2)
Food wars season 1 was pretty well received but got a bit old in the end. I guess the real question here is how much they are bringing in the way of changes for the new season.

Boku no Hero Academia 3rd Season
Still the biggest of the new wave of shonen. At this point, you're either already in or you're out.

Steins;Gate 0
A different story path from the first season. Tuturu~

Sword Art Online Alternative
Based on a side-content of SAO. About as good as that sounds.
I mean, usually side content is pretty bad. When it's actually good, it's a rarity.

Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii
2 otakus end up dating. Kinda funny stuff.
Think of it as people from Genshiken finally left university, got boring jobs and then hooked up together.

Persona 5 the Animation
How did they release an anime before I even had time to play game?

Jikken-hin Kazoku: Creatures Family Days
Whaaaa? This thing sounds so messed up.... and that's coming from the guy who re-watched Kyouran Kazoku Nikki this year.
Let me just copy/paste the synopsis:
«A scientist couple has been arrested for conducting illegal studies, allegedly for performing genetic modification on five of their children. The youngest child Dannis is the only one who grew up as a normal human and now has to tend to the rest of his family while trying to find a medicine to turn them into normal humans again.
Dog human, plant gene, spiderweb gene, and mind reading–how will these family members who grew up in a laboratory survive in the outside world?!»
I am morbidly curious...

3D Kanojo: Real Girl
Otaku in high school is getting dated by a hot girl. Not funny or particularly interesting. It's fairly bland and mostly about the MC's insecurities.
Like, if you want a shoujo feeling love story with an otaku male protag, go for it.
It's not a waste of time, it's just not something people will ever talk again in 3 months.

Hinamatsuri
Now THIS! THIS is my recommendation. It is hilarious.
A yakuza ends up giving shelter to a psychic young girl. Wacky things ensue.
The side cast is also incredible. Goddamn Mishima Hitomi is a goldmine of humor.

Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory
FMP finally getting a sequel. I don't even remember how I feel about FMP by now.
It all edges on if they can recapture the magic or not. DB sure did with its come back so it's not impossible.

Cutie Honey Universe
What I said above.

FLCL Progressive
What I said above the above.

Gundam Build Divers
I initially had snubbed the Gundam Build serie for not being a 'real' Gundam, but once I got to it, it was pretty good. Much better than some of the 'real' Gundams (*cough* AGE). I'm in for the ride, but since this is season 3, I don't expect to be amazed.

Continuing
Darling in the FranXX
My friend says I should watch this and it's actually good. The ero fades a bit after the start and there's a real story apparently.

Hitori no Shita: The Outcast 2
I loved season 1. It's a slow burn but the last two episodes were amazing.
Season 2 seems pretty slow up to now so I'm hoping it follows suit and has hard hitters at the end.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen
Pretty much what I said about FMP.

Specials
Digimon Tri continuing still
They really made 2 seasons of this but somehow could only get it out in OVA form.

Ninja Batman
This will either be horrible or horribly hilarious.

Quan Zhi Gao Shou
Totally unknown but actually good. This is about a Pro player that got snubbed coming back in TOTALLY NOT DUNGEON FIGHTER ONLINE
I don't know how they can do anything in 3x30 minutes though.

Just got a game over because I killed myself barbecuing in the game I'm playing.
BBQ is serious stuff y'all.

OK, so I'm designing a small game right now and one thing I'm struggling with at the moment is "should I give the different races bonuses based on their uniqueness?".

I feel like I can see two major points of view and I've been going over it a lot in my head and I can see good arguments for both.
A general poll here with you guys would help me see what others think about it.

I'd like to know what your preference is between these when considering going through a character creation (think Skyrim if you will):
A) I like to play a race because of how it looks and like that the stats tie into it.
B) I like to play a race because of how it looks and like that stats do not have to factor in my decision which is purely esthetic.
C) I care more about the stats than the appearance and will chose any race as long as the stat bonus interest me.
D) I care more about stats than the appearance but will try and fine something which at least does not appall me even should I not choose what I think would be the best bonuses.

People aren't writing anymore so we're losing our manual dexterity. Hence, I'd say those that live a life with the least contact possible are clearly losing on their social skills.
I mean, you can probably go on for a long time without ever getting out of your house nowadays with remote/informatic work, Amazon and grocery delivery.

3) tedious crafting/upgrade system. Sigh, once again Tales of Beseria.

I love Star Ocean 3, but jeez that crafting system is a huge pain in the ass.

Did I miss something or has there been an unusually long radio silence about the next game?

Vesperia's 10th year is in 2018 btw... just saying ya know...

Half a year later...
The lengthy radio silence just makes me keep believing it could be Vesperia.
Bamco, please make me happy or crush my hope once and for all already.
