    Went with Poland on an Archipelago map. Was able to get enough Ancient Wonders to stay in the mix then pinched control of the Congress and waited for Diplomatic Victory to get online.

    Mai was awesome, Aoi was refreshing, Kaede's arc was moving. I respected Sakuta during the series but lost it in the movie. Shouko got a raw deal from life, but after everything that happened for Sakuta and Mai to get closer along with salvaging Aoi and Kaede, it felt infuriating to see Sakuta want to just end it all because of Shouko. If there was more buildup or a more justified scenario (say Sakura from FSN) then I'd be fine with it. But this one was emotional blackmail for me. I just can't fathom doing that to Mai. Shouko then doing a hard reset and everything somehow being unchanged for everyone else felt too handy by far.

    I will get onto Civ 6 once it goes below 30 for the full package. Also, I got a lot of indie games this year and need to get through them.

    Anime-wise for this year, Odd Taxi is my one gem. Arcane is the surprise of a very damn long time for something Western. If the final third holds, it's easily one of the best things I've ever seen.

    I decided to give Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Senpai a go. Gave the series an 8.5 but will do everything possible to forget the movie.

    Well...I finally freaking won a game of Civ 5 on Deity difficulty...maybe I'm finally worthy of playing Civ 6. (When the price is right)

    So the Civ 6 Anthology bundle is $43 briefly atm. Nearing acceptable limits. If it reaches $30, I'll finally go for it.

    Just curious as to whether you play/have heard of Among Us. Simple yet enthralling and ever changing interactive whodunnit race. Started last night and had a blast in the discord group I played with.

    I'll try to explain Cornette. He's someone that is from a time that understood the importance of a gradual build, the nuances, the finer points. In an age where there is a lot of instant gratification/memes/everything needs to be silly or funny, he is someone that provides a perspective that isn't utterly contrarian but willing to call it out when it deserves it. That he is from the southern US but not redneck and that while many will listen to him for the rants, he can be even more enthralling when he talks about simple things from everyday life and you see what he is when he isn't on a verbal rampage. In his heyday, he was able to cut some amazing promos. He was also one of the best people to hear from in the recent run of season 2 of Dark Side of the Ring.

    I think it's very undervalued that in an age where both the more extreme ends of the left are crying foul of everything and the more extreme ends of the right want to have what they want at any cost, that there is someone slowing things down and trying to be relatively rational and honest but not cross the line too often. He gives me something to look forward to twice a week.

    Yahtzee works for a lot of people because in an industry where most people are suck-ups or refuse to say/hear anything negative, he is brutally honest and damn funny while being so even to the point of self-slander and not pushing a political agenda. Dev Diary shows he actually does have game making knowledge and a good understanding of the core parts of what makes a game work. In a world that no longer has Totalbiscuit due to his early death, he's probably the most balanced one out there and he has been at it WAY longer than all the others. Certainly YongYea, AngryJoe, Bellular, Taliesin & Evitel and the like do good stuff as well but Yahtzee is a veteran at this point.

    UrinatingTree is just priceless. And he covers so many sports. NFL, baseball, ice hockey, basketball. Hell, he even did one video on golf recently which was one of his best. He is savage (especially to teams of his home city) but he has a heart. His collaboration with KTO to cover the tragic history of the Cleveland Browns in the Superbowl era is one of the best things I've ever seen on Youtube.

    Cinemassacre's always been pretty good. Zero Punctuation I just never could get into; but I guess net critic stuff has been oversaturated.

    I actually don't get Jim Cornette that much.

    So how are we? Enduring the times we live in for the obvious reason and for both the left and right going way too extreme? Been watching/playing any good things?
