Deadpool 2 - I came. I saw. I laughed. I had a great time. I left.

....really don't have much to say beyond that. The writing was on-point. Great timing, great characterization. It was a great time from start to finish, with a post-credits ending that...I think I might've seen a tweet or headline spoiling, but didn't make enough sense out of context until I saw it myself, so I don't think it counts as spoiled?

Basically, I loved it. Sure, it didn't set the world on fire, but....why is that a saying? Seriously, I think if the world was on fire, we'd all be dead. Or living in underground vaults that are secretly lab experiments meant to stretch the limits of how much you can screw with people...speaking of which, Mission Impossible: Fallout Edition looks amazing. It's a very unexpected crossover, but I'm sure it'll be Game of the Year once all the bugs are patched out.
Spoiler: show
They're never getting patched out.


...what was I talking about? Oh yeah, The Avenger: Infinity Guantlet Acts 1 & 2. I saw. I laughed. I cried. I wooed and cheered. I left with a sense of hollowness and bitter disappointment at the fact that I bought the Beta Early Access version instead of waiting for the Complete Edition that'll release next year. But, that was my fault, since they only mentioned it in every one of their advertisements, except the ones I actually saw. I still cannot figure out how I missed that. It's like the entire internet is playing a practical joke on me, and I want it to stop!

But the joke's on you! This is the only Marvel movie that's based on a story I've already read! I already know how it ends!

...except they only used about 10% of said material...mostly just the basic concept, really...and it's set in a seperate universe...with only a small fraction of the original characters, most of whom are actually more important to the film than they were to the comic...and honestly, the only substantial part that they used was the part I never expected them to use...

...I'll just blame Disney until I invent time travel. Or the next movie comes out. Whichever comes first.

Wait what?

...oh, that game that was actually banned by the UK ratings board. Yeah, I think I'll go back to pretending this clearly desperate, pandering game doesn't exist.

<-- Never encountered input lag in Bloodborne, nor did I feel that the interface was sluggish. Clunky and unorganized, but not slow or laggy. Maybe the PS Store is, but...that's been a constant problem with Playstation products, and even their websites are slow as fuck. They need to get their shit together there...otherwise, can't help ya, sorry. Did you try different HDMI cables? That's the only other thing I got. Had to swap the ones on my PS3 once because I was having issues.

Anywho:

Warframe - Still faffing about in this here and there. Only big thing left to do is hunt an Eidolon. This game needs more Post-Game, IMO. Seems like it used to have Raids and Dark Sectors before they took them out at some point, and PC has a new hardcore mode that might be fun, but right now there's such a huge difficulty gap between everything else and these behemoths that it's tough to get prepared...

Ratchet & Clank (PS4) - Blew through this, and I'm now on the final level. Only thing I gotta do before that is do the Hoverboard races up through Gold. I've kind of been procrastinating on that, however, because the hoverboard races have made me ragequit in the past, and I only barely passed the races I had to do in order to progress...

Monster Hunter: World - Only played long enough to confirm that it is still, indeed, Monster Hunter, and the lack of loading screens between zones did not fundamentally change how the game is played. I'm not exactly in the mood for another major time commitment, though.

After R&C is done, I'll move onto some Wii U games. I already messed around with Smash Bros the other day with my Brother, and I can safely cross that off the list - it's exactly my favorite in the series, there's not enough singleplayer content here to keep us coming back compared to Melee and Brawl...or even the N64 game. It's really just achievements and "I Can't Believe It's Not Mario Party! Wait, Yes I Can, Even Mario Party is Better Than This" Smash Tour. I only have 18 Wii U games left to beat, along with a handful of Wii games I neglected, so I'd like to get those out of the way. I intend to save up for a Nintendo Switch throughout the year, and hopefully be able to get one on sale around Cyber Monday or Xmas. If not, I can definitely save up to get it by my Birthday (so...11 months. Set aside $35 a month and I can still get some games with it).

...and you can't just go all willy nilly with crazy attacks.

And that's the problem I have with it! That's what I want from my Hack 'n' Slash games! I DON'T want Dark Souls! I mean, I don't mind dodges and blocking, but I don't feel like the combat in God of War 2018 really seems to incorporate them in such a way that it won't slow down the flow of an aggressive assault, even if you know what you're doing. But please, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. If I haven't made this clear yet, I honestly feel like Hack 'n' Slash games dried up outside of one singular company...and Dynasty Warriors, but I always felt like those games were too monotonously easy to play outside of short bursts, and DW9 looks like a trainwreck...more to choose from would be welcome.

I'm glad people are enjoying it, but God of War has never been my thing, and none of the videos actually looked enjoyable. I prefer my hack 'n' slash games to be faster-paced and combo-focused, and that seems to have been downplayed far more than even the PS2 games...it does make me want to try God of War III, though...

^That's your perogative, but I would like to remind you that we aren't exactly talking about a well-known game series here, and one we're really lucky they're even considering to release outside of Japan - not because of a lack of quality, but because publishers these days tend to play it safe and would rather focus on well-known, established brands when possible. Even NISA had been focusing a little hard on Disgaea for a while, and I'm sure Ys VIII must've been an expensive license, so I'm surprised they're bothering to branch out so soon like this. But as a fan of Mad Max and Metal Max...I'd at least like you to keep in mind that game publishing is still a business, and sometimes they're going to make decisions that have nothing to do with the actual quality of the game in question.

Oh God, I remember Bulllet Witch...that was a waste of a rental.

Been super stoked for this since it was announced. Glad to finally see another entry in the west.

I already mentioned the retro-ish love this season is getting. I didn't notice FLCL was getting a sequel, though. Awesome.

So yeah, a lot of awesome shows to make me feel like a kid again, and I can't wait!

Finally moved out of my previous, shitty apartment on Wednesday. Still unpacking a few things, but the new one I got has been a huge step up in terms of comfort. Before I had to deal with poor air circulation, cockroaches (at least when I moved in), a leaky radiator that went ignored despite numerous complaints until the guy from under me started complaining about a huge hole in his ceiling barely a week before I moved out, and a lousy neighbor who consistantly smoked various substances (despite being in a non-smoking building and no, no one was reprimanding him for it. Frequent communication issues with the management agency was another big problem I'm glad I no longer have to deal with), and shouting seemed to be his only method of communication, even when he wasn't blaring loud music from his expensive sound system at odd hours...

The new place is quiet, clean, roomier, and I'll only have one neighbor eventually to deal with (currently I'm the only tenant in the building, and it's just 2 apartments, anyways). Clean shag carpets, heat I can regulate myself, and plenty of natural light, overlooking a decent neighborhood for once. Obviously it might be a bit more expensive in the rent, but I should be able to afford it. If not, there's enough places I can try to apply for a part time job if I need to - I've learned my lesson and I'll fight tooth and nail to keep a good place like this.

Man, it seems like you can't have a modern fighting game without guest characters now. Geralt of Rivia just announced to be in the new Soul Calibur, and he's half the box cover.

To be fair, Soul Calibur has always had a guest character since SCII, which most would agree was the best at least partly due to its guest characters on each platform...

HDIVE has legend of the galactic heroes and we do have a new? reboot? out in a few months so I'm going to start it.

Do they still require a subscription? That's the main thing that's put me off that site, which was also my problem with The Anime Network before it...

Jumping the gun a bit, but man, there's a lot of old school stuff coming next season. Lupin III: Part V, The Legend of Galactic Heroes, a Fist of the North Star prequel, CUTIE HONEY!!!, and the return of Gegege no Kitarou (lesser known outside of Japan, but a big deal to old/old school japanese fans, I'm sure). Coupled with the return of Full Metal Panic! (not that old, but one I've been eagerly anticipating) and I've got quite the blast from the past to look forward to. Honestly, I'm just glad I've got more than just My Hero Academia that caught my interest, since I've gone way too long jusat watching reruns and playing catch-up with older series. I need something new again...or at least something old that's starting up again. =P

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.

Worst one I've encountered, at least.
