Edit: Random thought of the day,

Wait, are you saying that wasn't already a random thought? Do you mean you can get more random?!

can "Liberal-Industrial Complex" be a thing? Like, we once had the military industrial complex and all that, so why not, "Social Media-progressive-internet-industrial complex" or something like that.

Oh my God he can...

Granted, I usually try to ignore current events because how confusing they get. It's like, I can't change jack-squat, nor do I care to shoulder such responsibility. I'm gonna go back to paying attention to things that affect my everyday life. Like the fact that I've accidentally reenacted the "ripped-pants" scene from Spongebob, and woke up at 3 A.M. to eat a burger within the last 48 hours. I look forward to what tomorrow brings.

Yeah I dodged out at that point, I heard good things... from  others....

In other anime news I'm currently like 80 episodes down into my Precure binge, so like 420 go or so at this point.

You remind me that I'll have to start on the new one, I'm getting behind on Precure...

The series vary quite a bit between themselves. This is my general ranking for the ones I've watched:

Heartcatch > Happiness > Suite > Yes! PreCure 5 > Go! Princess > Smile > Fresh > DokiDoki
*Precure 5 is a weird case where season 1 is super dull and then season 2 (gogo!) is great

Also, the movies are usually very good. Movies that are continuations of the series are really hit or miss but the "All Stars" movies (basically compilations of the characters from the different series) are always great. Out of those, I really like "Precure All Stars Movie: Spring Carnival"

Here's some general appreciation charts if you're wondering what to go for (not up to date though):



And here's some diabetes

I'm sure different people will give you different opinions....but imo no. There are a few "exciting" set pieces, but the story doesn't really get much more exciting overall and I don't think the sidequests ever really get better. Although, maybe try advancing the story up to the Titan segment (the first of the "exciting" set pieces) and see if your opinion has changed by then? Probably not, but if you just focus on the story it shouldn't take that long to do.

I really was hoping at some point that the story picked up and then the game was already over.

The story is really lacking. There is no depth to anyone except with the main 4. The villain has some backstory but even there his motivations aren't fleshed out enough to care. I mean "That is why you're so bent on revenge? Grow up..."

You're exaggerating, they said.  It won't be that bad, they said.  Give him a chance they said.

We are now officially heading towards facism.

He does understand that the Germany Second video wasn't meant to be inspirational, right?

Tis a page straight out of the Stalin playbook.  Here's an essay comparing Trump's and Stalin's uses of disinformation as a political tool.

NISA, not Xseed?  Guess that honeymoon is over...
I assume Xseed just has their hands full with translating Trails in the Sky part 3 and Cold Steel part 3.

Nope.

BALDURS GATE -- Well I think what is really gonna make Minsc and Boo upset is the fact that I've decided to put this down for now.

It's funny in the sense that I've enjoyed the game well enough. By every objective measure, I truly think the game is worth the praise it gets. That said, subjectively speaking, it simply hasn't resonated enough with me to stick with.

It was awesome to learn and see what it was about because it intrigued me for quite some time but I can safely say it simply is not inspiring me at the moment. I'm gonna chalk it up to "I've been too spoiled by contemporary gaming".

Now, before everyone/anyone gets upset and says I need to stick it out til "x" point and whatnot, please understand that I did appreciate everything I experienced but the thing is I really don't want it to grab me at this point, lest I become committed to something that is just not doing it for me despite all that it does right. -- (this is the formula for a "game" becomes a "chore" or "obligation" for me personally.)

TALES OF ZESTY-- Completed the trial of water and man o' man, what a FANTASTIC little dungeon. They could have done something to turn the "trial" itself into a puzzle instead of simply being solved by way of progression but I still enjoyed my time none-the-less.

Tales of Zesty, ironically enough, is a good example of the counter experience to Baldurs Gate for me. A title with flaws left and right that subjectively hits all the right notes and gets me looking forward to turning it on long before I pick up my controller.
