I always thought people "enjoyed" curling due to it being so different from most of the other events, and so people who weren't so into sports would be into it ironically.  I have absolutely no idea if that's true or not.  Personally I find the Olympics boring in their entirety so I haven't been following it.

I did watch the whole superbowl, which is uncharacteristic of me.  I'm not an eagles fan per se, but I'm glad they finally won something.

I'm probably in the minority but I don't really like Yoshida's designs (similarly, I don't like Amano's designs) and really prefer the FF artwork done by Tetsuya Nomura.  My dream would be if Kimihiko Fujisaka (who did the designs for NieR, Drakengard and The Last Story) would do character designs.

I'm also probably in the minority because I really liked XV, but I'd be happy if we got another modern-era game, but one with a battle system more reminiscent of X, and characters with their own unique sets of abilities instead of something like the job system.

I hate multiplayer RPGs, so I really hope they're done with that for a while.

I also enjoyed the spoilercast episode!  I've been on the fence about playing the Danganronpa games since the first one got translated, but the podcast has planted me firmly in "not for me" territory, which is a good thing overall. I probably don't have the time to invest in a whole new series, and I don't think I would have taken the spoilers in 3 very well if I went into it blind, so cheers to you all for saving me countless hours that I can spend on different games.

From what I understand, luck plays a part but also the type of core crystal you use.  I've used about 20 common crystals and only got common blades, but I used one rare crystal and got a rare blade.  I imagine if you have decent luck you can get a rare blade out of a common crystal.

Maybe go see it by yourself?  Then you'll be free to geek out about it whenever you want.

I'm seeing Star War on Christmas because I don't have anything else to do, and I don't care about the series enough to have seen it earlier.

I bought this on release but we only opened our Switch yesterday so I finally got a chance to dig into this game.  I'm only just past the tutorial-ish part but I'm liking it.  My only major peeve so far is that the X button on the switch controller opens the fast travel and not the menu.  I must have mistakenly opened fast travel a dozen times so far.

I think I've beaten everything I'm going to beat in 2017 so here's my list:
Final Fantasy XV (And the Bro DLC)
Nier Automata
Persona 5
Sonic Mania
Diablo 3 (Story Mode)
The Final Station

I also effectively finished a runthrough of Stardew Valley, and am at the last boss of Tales of Berseria, although I'm not sure if I'm compelled enough to go back and beat the game.

So I got in a car crash last week on my way to work.  I'm fine, but my car is totaled, and now I'm in the overwhelmingly shitty process of buying another one.  I'm glad I had insurance, but all said and done I'll still be out a few thousand dollars at the end of this.  Of course this had to happen to the first car I ever purchased new, one that I've taken excellent care of.  The two beaters I drove previously never got a scratch on them.

I wish I could just teleport.

After waiting for an hour at a Wal Mart 45 minutes away from my house, I was able to get a SNES Classic!  I didn't assume I was going to get lucky with this so I'm pretty stoked.

Miller's is great! My sister used to live in Lancaster and she took us there one time when my wife and I visited her.

Shady Maple is also wonderful if you ever get a chance to go back that way.

I'm told The Amnish have great ingredients, although I'm not anywhere near the Amnish, so I'm out of luck there, not that I would want to support the Christian terrorist state in Pennsylvania at any rate...

The only terror here is mine in thinking that anyone would willingly pass up Amish food.  Those folks know their way around a kitchen.

My wife and I went to a beerfest at our local zoo yesterday, which was pretty awesome and fun, especially getting to see the animals with no kids around.

The resulting hangover has not been fun.  Me at 30 can't drink like me at 21, evidently.

XV and XII seem almost diametrically opposed with certain people, as I really like XV and consider XII completely unplayable. XIII also, but to a lesser extent. 

I think if you don't count Tactics, then FFXV has made it into my top five main series FF games, surprisingly.  It certainly isn't perfect and I don't think they'll ever end up patching in everything I'd want from the game, but overall I had a nice experience with it and will likely replay once it stops getting updates.

My top five:
5.5. XV
5. Tictacs
4. X
2. IX
1. VII

I'm in a constant state of trying to stop being fat, and generally my daily menu reflects that both positively and negatively.

Breakfast: This is usually limited to what I have at work on weekdays, so it's typically either oatmeal, a poptart or peanut butter toast. Every once in a while I'll get a Chick-Fil-A breakfast burrito.  On the weekends I'll usually make whatever my wife wants, typically eggs and bacon. Every so often I'll make salted salmon with miso soup and rice.  Breakfast always includes 2.5 large cups of black coffee.

Lunch:  If it's the weekday and I'm biking at lunch, it's a yogurt and an orange, sometimes with a PB&J sandwich and sometimes without.  If I go out to eat it's usually Mexican food, sometimes Indian food.  I'll drink water unless I brought a sparkling water with me.  On the weekends breakfast and lunch end up being one meal because I sleep late, so I skip a traditional lunch.

Dinner: This changes depending upon what I have and what I feel like making that day.  I do a lot of Japanese-style stuff like oyakodon, curry, yakiudon.  I used to do more stir fry but the wok I used belonged to my housemate who moved out.  My wife and I enjoy seafood so I try to factor this in occasionally.  In the summer we grill a lot, and in the winter I do a lot of one-pot stuff like chicken matzo-ball soup, jambalaya and red beans and rice.  I don't really love red meat and tend to favor chicken, although on Monday I grilled steak with pepper/onion kebabs and potatoes.  We go out to eat usually once a week, but sometimes more if people ask us to or if I get lazy and don't want to cook.

I don't keep soda in the house so I don't generally drink it.  I have been buying a lot of sparkling water though, and we will have beer with dinner if we have any.  I try not to buy it often because then I won't have it around to drink.
