Some spoilers, most vague.

> omg can that title font be any cooler??  #JustDesignerThings #FontsAreSexy

> Teams: Goonies, Degrassi, and Suburban Noire.  I love that each take you for a ride.

> These kids can ACT.  They even put on an Aussie accent way better than I ever have and El's scream is perfectly haunting! You go girl.

> The music is fantastic.  Love that old 80s synth style (which is a still living musical genre more enduring than I'd have ever thought)

> Dustin is *always*right*.  Seriously, it's dangerous to go alone, take Dustin with you. 

> What I love is this show combines alternate dimensions, psychics, aliens, and just a teeny-weeny bit of magic and does it surprisingly well.... Not sure the "mythology" in the series really adds up, but it's still a lot of fun and the "Silent Hill-verse" is a cool idea!

> Why when a tv show or movie needs someone to bleed, who do they always cut their palm!?  The arm, or leg even, but not a part of you where the wound is gonna keep opening and closing!!!

> MVP might actually have to go to Steve. Mutherfucker swung that bat like a superstar and he wasn't the typical jerk-face to make the love triangle choice an easy choice.  The Degrassi Group also get my vote for the 'most improved' category as far as their plot goes. 

> The bigger mystery is obviously Will and his champion-level Hide and Seek skills.

> Eleven was pretty damn cool.   I didn't think much of her at first, typical weirdo telepathic plot... but I do like it as a story of her trying to be normal while kicking ass and, almost literally, punishing her demons.  The best stuff with her definitely happens later on, but boy is it worth it.

> I love how useless Mike and Nancy's Dad is.  The show totally makes a conscious effort to make him useless any time he has a line to say by literally adding nothing to say each time.  Wasn't keen on the mum either besides trying to get involved in things... and she really doesn't at all, I have no idea what the point of her was beyond 'doting'. 

> The show is very good with build-up, getting you to slowly accept its ideas that a crazy "sci-fi thing" is happening, how insane it all sounds, and at what point you need to make that leap of faith that it might all be true.  I do like how all parties finally get together after enough of the weird shit has finally happened to finally work together on solving their shared dilemma.

> Poor Barb.  She really gets shit on the worst.  Worst outfit (but pretty face under those unflattering turtle necks), the best intentions (which were wrong because Steve is a pretty stellar fella), and meets a nasty conclusion.  As much as I love Nancy, she was only an 'okay' friend back!

> HI I'M NANCY, I'M GONNA GO IN THIS CREEPY WET TUNNEL BECAUSE IT'S PROBABLY FINE.

> I love when Dustin calls the teacher for information on Sensory Deprivation Tanks.... probably because Google hasn't been invented yet.

> GIMME SEASON 2.

So all in all, this is mainly centered around the nitpicky nature of geeks and their inability to separate their own brand of issues with the work at hand.

Having said that said, I'm sure that what I said above is gonna get twisted somehow or interpreted as some kind of drama because the world works backwards, or something to that effect. In any case, I'm looking foward to the World of FF despite that it looks like I'll have to get on it if I can later with DX: Mankind Divided and Final Fantasy XV being much more of a priority to me than the chibi adventures.

I'm trying to understand this paragraph other than you're anticipating Deus Ex and FF15 (which I think speaks for all of us).  But what else are you trying to say exactly? Are you complaining about our complaints?  Art is a personal thing, if people don't like it there's no need to make a thign of it.

Right at the end of Twilight Princess. Believe I have gotten all the upgrades at this except for the uber wallet at the end of the Cave of Shadows. However rupees are kind of useless to me and I have apparently already gotten my wolf link Amiibo saved with 20 hearts for Breath of the Wild. So not going to bother with going through Cave of Shadows two more times. Just going to beat it tonight and then probably move on to DR2.

Yeah I never really liked Zelda games throwing out money.  After like the 5th dungeon of the game there's really nothing else left to buy.
Still, love TP <3

I just keep my hair short enough that my bald spot looks intentional.

Hah, I like that. x)

@Andrew & Arvis: There's not a right way to say this, but, have both of you guys seen your avatars? Do you notice the irony and lack of self-awareness there is by showing a dislike to chibis and have a 2D chibi sprite in your profile?

I'm not trying to be judgemental. Is just that, that's why I'm seeing and I find it a bit curious.
I'm not a fan of the chibi look either.  For me it's a sizeable turn off.  I think part of the reason is that in this game's iteration, the chibification is quite extreme.

It's..cute I guess.  It's really, really stylized, and I like it about as much as the Theatrhythm ones.  I don't like how it makes most of them 'samey' looking.

If there was a style I liked it was the FFVI one (not nearly as humourous looking, of course, but...).  Even the FF9 look worked.


That said the screen shot I posted of the girl riding the monster is pretty adorbs.  Just not sure how well the look works when trying to tell the serious parts of the story (or basically any time Cloud, Squall, and Lightning are on screen).

Playing Twilight princess so I can get a max heart container wolf Link for Breath of the Wild. Just finished the Water Temple. It is good to know that one thing never changes in any Zelda game...the water dungeon sucks. >.>

So far Velvet is my favorite character to play as in Leiftrasir. I'm a sucker for mid-range melee fighters, and her movement abilities are really fun to mess around with. She also has my favorite guard animation in the game.
I found Velvet to be the strongest character in the remake. When I had to do the boss rush or repeat an annoying boss fight for bad endings, she was the one I chose.

Re: TP:  I thought the Lakebed Temple was a conscious effort to steer away from the complexities that was the Ocarina Water Temple.  It's a lot more straightforward, but still involves a really rough start and some annoying backtracking.

Edit: Screw it. Doesn't matter. Wish there was a delete button.

Aw but now I'm curious.

Ooo I honestly feel the new Pokemon designs are pretty fantastic so far.  Alola forms are...oddly great too, for the gimmick it is and everything I welcome cool new designs on already cool PKMN.

....A Pokemon Fusion system should be the "next thing".

I'm convinced that Canadian Geese are a mutant conspiracy theory.  That is the one animal I have vehemently vicious loathing for and think should go extinct.  The ecosystem will be all the better without those nasty filthy foul fowl.  I could go on about my hatred of Canadian Geese, but I've probably done that enough times.  If a NJ gubernatorial candidate speaks of a plan to eliminate the geese, they'll likely have my vote.

As for haps... I might have to stay off my bicycle till Sunday.  I'd give the reason why, but it might veer into TMI territory. 

I completely agree, I bet those fuckers peruse Satan's garden in hell, and they're still mean as hell on earth.

I did the Spellbound Century bike-a-thon today.  The quick and dirty of this adventure was that it was a tale of getting lost, near dehydration, a pushup contest, and an accidental computer reset.  

The longer version:
My 46 mile ride turned into a 50-52 mile ride because, on the third leg, I missed a turn (it wasn't marked), got lost, but eventually found my way back on course.  As I was going back on course, I saw some other riders on the other side of the road who made the same mistake that I did and I tried to holler to them to turn back, but they didn't hear me.  

So, because of the extra mileage I put in on that third leg and the fact that the third leg (out of 4) was mostly out in the sun (almost no shade) I ran out of fluids 3-4 miles from the next rest area.  We're talking a 24 oz. bottle of water and a 24 oz. bottle of Gatorade completely empty 3-4 miles from the rest stop.  That was really rough, but I made it and though that rest stop ran out of food, they had enough water and Gatorade for me to partially fill my bottles enough to get to the end.  I was making such good time (keeping a 16-18mph pace), but the dehydration slowed my pace to about 12-14mph on the latter part of the third and the final legs.

I have no idea what my final mileage was since, during a descent, I was crouched so far over the handlebars that I accidentally reset my cyclocomputer so my final reading was about 26 miles.  

And during the end-ride lunch, I was making my way to the bathroom when I encountered a group of people doing an incline pushup contest off the side of a picnic table.  And I participated.  I managed to eke out 24 incline pushups, so I'm stoked.  I know that seems stupid and everything, but because I spent much of my youth as a weakling, crybaby, gym-class-joke, I overcompensate as an adult to prove (mostly to myself, but also to others) that I'm (physically) strong, that I'm tough, even though I used to be fat and my body still looks disgusting.  

Well done Din!  Reading that was exhausting from my safe perch here (as I've sat on my bum doing work from home).

Something about having a cat party member helping you with fishing seems suspect...
