Found out yesterday that pretty much everyone at work knows about the incident I mentioned last time and all of them are angry on my behalf. Makes me feel quite happy to know about that and goes a long way in alleviating the building self-doubt caused by the incident itself.

I have tourettes (recently diagnosed), not vocal but i have developed a series of body tics. If someone made fun of me for it I know for a fact everyone would think the person who did it was a massive douche.

I never tried Jade Cocoon. And how does the sequel fair in comparison? I wouldn't mind trying out some more obscure PS2 RPGs.

I love Jade Cocoon 2! It's one of my favourite monster raising games!

It's not a good plot, but it's really not a bad one - it has interesting characters going for it! Battle System is fun as heck too.

The episode of the new season of Black Mirror called "San Junipero" was wonderful.

Why is the video getting disliked to hell.

I thought it was good.

It isn't as bad as a synopsis probably makes it seem.

The fan service was just too much for me though. No amount of "But the males get naked too" or "But she doesn't LIKE people pointing out she's wearing thong-suspenders!" can make it better for me. :P

Yeah, he could be a little better at it, but I know he isn't being hurtful on purpose. I legitimately know he wouldn't care if I did it to him, so he isn't being a hypocrite at least. We're totally different people when it comes to processing emotions. :P

He doesn't see my attempt at "You're my boyfriend and I love you and I like this thing, and I hope that together I can introduce you to this thing I like and bond over it!"

He sees it more in a vacuum. Its just a tv show/movie.

He ... tuts and rolls his eyes at anything live action like ... Firefly.

Dump that loser.  :P

In all seriousness, though, it really stinks trying to share anything with people like that, who aren't open to new experiences and generally negative about everything.  Eventually you get to the point where you stop trying and just accept that you're going to enjoy the things you love on your own.

Yeah, it does make me want to stop trying. :P

Maybe I'm just salty because I sat through Kill La Kill for him and kept all my screams internal.

I keep trying to watch more adult TV shows with my boyfriend, but I seem to be failing miserably. He's quite a strange person in that way. He only really watches cartoons or anime, and tuts and rolls his eyes at anything live action like Game of Thrones, Firefly, Black Mirror, Breaking Bad, etc etc. I keep trying but to no avail. :P

It's fine, it's not his thing, but it does make me miss having someone to share this stuff with. It makes for a very uncomfortable viewing experience when you're trying to share something you find cool and they look down their nose at it. :P

Starmongoose to weigh in regarding kilts -

I've never worn one.

Plus, how many games actually put Canada in their game?

Etrian Odyssey Untold's Raquna Sheldon is from fantasy!Ontario. She likes maple-flavored ice cream and says 'eh'.

Hah!!! Love it!!!

I could have sworn I made a joke about Raquna and her Canadianness in my review of that game, but apparently I didn't. :(

I did enjoy my "Screw the rules, I have En" joke in the second one though.

Prior to selective breeding at the hands of humans, octopuses were actually tacos, and the word taco comes from the Japanese word tako, which means taco, and was adopted as a loanword into the indigenous languages of Central America after contact with Japanese settlers in the early 500s AD.

Also while we're at it the US totally needs more gun control cause THESE PYTHONS ARE SICK

... wait no that's not I don't wait just a ?????

Sometimes I worry that I'm witnessing the signs of some onset mental disease and not doing anything to help. :(

I liked the most recent episodes. I don't particularly agree with the full list, but I appreciated the struggle.  One thing, however, it seemed like you guys were flip-flopping over the general intent of the list. Half the time it was an essential RPG list, but then at times it seemed as though you defaulted into games that were your personal favorites (or ones you didn't like). Speaking from a personal standpoint, if I were to make a list of my ten favorite RPGs and the ten RPGs I felt were essential for anyone to play, I think there would be very few crossovers. As an example, Chrono Trigger would be an essential game to me, but not in my top ten, while Chrono Cross is the exact opposite: it resonates with me personally, but it doesn't seem to have the universal appeal or groundbreakingness that Trigger has..  For similar reasons, I probably wouldn't foist NieR onto an unwitting friend, but in something like a five-year period, no other game came close to offering the same level of enjoyment I had while playing it.

Also, nobody having Suikoden 2 on their list is probably a crime somewhere.

This is how you give constructive criticism people.

Sometimes it's twice an episode.

Continuing my transition from 24 year old man into middle-aged woman by binge watching Call the Midwife and crying every time someone has a baby.
