Y'all should just pick up Splatoon. That game was my jam last summer. Easily put in about 100 hours into it.

Strangest part of that announcement is saying Zelda will be the ONLY playable Nintendo game at E3, unless they mean its going to be the only playable NX game at E3 that doesn't really bode well for Nintendo's holiday season.

Damnit, it's Golden Week Sale time on PSN and I have zero money to spend on games I haven't planned for. Like, I wouldn't even care since I have a ton of games to get through right now anyway, but that Digimon game everyone's been gushing over is 40% off.

I swear, I've never felt more like everything and everyone is actively working against me than I have this week.

I try to stay away from modern television that is critically acclaimed as none of it usually appeals to me. For example, I thought Mr. Robot was pretentious nonsense. I'd never bad mouth a show I've never watched, but it just happens to be a pattern I've noticed and thus adhered to.

Not only that it seems like every day is National [Food Product] Day.

So I've been bouncing around between a bunch of games in my backlog but none of them are really doing anything for me. Except Dark Cloud 2, which is just because it happens to be nostalgic trip to a time when life wasn't so shit. And now that that's starting to wear off, even that feels more like a chore than entertainment.

There are plenty of options out there for both iOS phones and Andriod phones

THAT being said, the reason I've not mentioned them in this debate is because I don't know how their compatability is with different games. Seems like touch controls > controller support would have to be something the devs themselves build in to individual games.

Logged into Echo of Soul for the first time in a month and they had done that incredibly annoying thing that RIFT used to do where all my skill points were reset forcing me to either remember what I had done or re-allocate skills differently. Luckily the skill system isn't quite as complicated as RIFT and it only took me about a half hour to do all three of my characters, but I still wish games would just leave that kind of thing as optional.

I for one, can't wait for it to be revealed that she's in your party for all of one dungeon before she goes all Flynn on Velvet's Yuri.

Double entendre?

Finished the story in Danganronpa 2. I may post more about it tomorrow but the tl;dr version is that it was another excellent game marred only slightly by too many action-y minigames and a final trial with way too much long-winded dialogue in between the interactive bits that just kept repeating the same sentiments over and over instead of getting on with the story.

I still think the Danganronpa games have the best cast of characters around. Maybe to entertain myself I'll start matching forum members to Danganronpa characters and read their posts to myself in that character's voice and mannerisms.

Wasn't sure where to put this, and here seemed like the best place even though its certainly not exclusive to games and doesn't really have anything to do with a specific game. But after I quickly jumped in and out of the Zero Escape thread, I felt like vocalizing this opinion, but elsewhere so it didn't come across as antagonistic or directed at anyone in particular:

I don't understand the fun people have of trying to dig out details of plot twists and spoilers, basically trying to solve a game or movie or whatever's mystery before the game/movie/whatever has given out all the clues. Even when a TV show teases that someone is going to die, I don't like participating in the discussion of who it might be. Eventually you're going to run through all the possibilities and then the surprise will mean that much less.

And sure, if whatever doesn't manage to surprise you and allowed you to figure out the mystery on your own, you could blame the story for not making enough of an effort to be surprsing, but I still feel like going through the exercise is just a guarantee that you won't get the same enjoyment as just going along for the ride. And I realize this makes it sound like I don't like mysteries, but its quite the opposite. I love anything with good twists and mysteries and "mind fuckery" as I mentioned in the game journal, I just personally feel like part of my enjoyment of that kind of story is to just let it do its thing and not try to interfere by analyzing and theorycraft every detail.

Anyway, that's my unpopular opinion for the evening.

I just started Chapter "6" in Danganronpa 2.

WHAT     IS      EVEN

Love this kind of mind fuckery.

I like to think of Light's hair as the anime version of Rose Blonde
