Well I'll give an answer similar to the answer you mentioned not giving and say DBZ. My friend turned me on to it in junior high, and as a young teen I was really into it, then as an older teen I looked back on it and realized how ridiculous the whole thing was. Now as an adult I reflect on to it with some level of nostalgia and charm.

I *think* the first non-dubbed anime I watched was Lucky Star, but then I could have watched a dubbed version and just remember it wrong. Either way, LS was the first anime I watched with full awareness that I was watching anime. Still love that one, too. Its just so cheerful and lovely and inconsequential. Great to watch when I just want to smile for a bit.

So I bought Overwatch because my friends pressure me into it. I wouldn't have gotten it otherwise.
Turns out I suck majorly at the game, but now I'm playing it in hope of getting better and not sucking.
That's not working because I'm still as terrible even with 30 hours or so in.

So now, I bought I game I didn't want and playing it just makes me angry, but I keep playing because I don't want to be that terribad guy when I play with my friends.
This is all completely unhealthy.

And yet, its a more common story than you think. I know so many people who were dissatisfied with the beta and still ended up getting convinced by friends or the general public to buy the game anyway. Of all the AAA games throughout the years, I don't think I've ever witnessed the level of infectious hype that Overwatch has reached.

^ IMO this is an okay thing to base a console purchase on.

(I mean, I bought that ridiculous $100 season pass for Project Diva 2nd, so...)

Most new releases are, and I don't see any particular reason why they would go out of their way to make it incompatible.

I thought the season finale of SHIELD was good to a point but there was absolutely no need for it to be 2 hours long. MAAAYYYBE an hour and a half, but they could have gotten away with a decent hour long finale.

Also Skye/Daisy has officially come full circle, so... whatevs. Kind of hated her character during the second half of the season.

Tried playing some Paper Mario Sticker Star to switch things up a bit. Once again made it through two stages before thinking, "Oh yeah, this game is utter garbage." It sucks, because the idea is sound but the consumption of stickers just destroys any potential the game otherwise would have. Like, sometimes you have to use two or three stickers in one battle to earn enough coins to cover the cost of one.

So instead I decided to switch up my long-term game from Fantasy Life to Story of Seasons.

Season 2 finale of the flash...

Just...wow...like not ground breaking or emotionally painful (maybe a little), but fuck...next season is gonna be weird...

Caught up last night and... yeah... you're right.  I'm willing to bet it follow the model set by last season: end on cliffhanger with big problem, fix problem in season premier, deal with fallout from said problem throughout the season.

AKA every action show ever.

They look like modern FF characters cosplaying as pre-FF7 characters.

Probably. FFXIV is just weaponized nostalgia for FF fans at this point.

Still think some titles or emblems or cosmetic unlockables would be nice. Blizzard is doing an excellent job crafting the game in the direction they want to take it, I just don't happen to like that particular direction. That's Blizzard for you, though. I mean they even found a way to make PvE Diablo competitive.

The Batman Arkham series or Enslaved are two that come to mind. I'm too tired and in pain to think of any more at the moment, but basically anything that doesn't fit neatly into an existing genre is labeled as "Action-Adventure"

Got a knee brace and crutches at urgent care today. Currently debating whether or not I want to brave the stairs to go grab Okami HD from PSN's $5 Flash Sale.

Managed to dislocate my knee for the third time today. Yay for MD! Luckily it didn't stay dislocated this time, but that only means I had a good excuse not to go to the ER tonight.

Mind you this was mere hours after getting a call in for an interview to a job where I'd be on my feet all day. Saying I feel a little hopeless and depressed tonight would be an understatement. In lots of pain, too, but that can be medicated away.

(And yes,  I do recognize that my feelings are just the combination of pain and miserable luck playing tricks on my mind, but knowing that doesn't really help much)

Took a break from Dark Cloud 2 to play more Trails of Cold Steel. Man the writing in that game is impressive, enjoying it even more than the writing in Trails in the Sky. Also, riding around the Nordlands--aside from making me paranoid about finding every secret in the chapter--is really making me look forward to a new Zelda game. The odd thing is, as much as I love the characters and writing and environments, I'm still always anxious to get to another section with combat because the battles are just that interesting--a real departure from TitS

dietary disasters like the infamous patatje kapsalon.   

That seems down right healthy in the land that put a double bacon cheeseburger between two over-glazed donuts.



But yes, most of our fast food includes burgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, pizza and American-Chinese food. Also, American fast food joints have lately been obsessed with spicy.
