    NHL draft is on soon. Hoping whoever Montreal gets with the #1 pick (sound like it will be Wright) can send them back in the right direction. And I hope the Maple Leafs do something major on defense and goalie depth this offseason.

    I'm still using Windows 10. I haven't heard of any reason to make a jump to 11. Heck, it might be at 12 or 13 before I get a different one. 10 seems to do plenty well enough. Same deal for my 1060 graphics card. I know I will need a new one at some point but it plays almost anything well, so no need. Heck, maybe the 5xxx range will be around and affordable by the time I do.

    Excellent news to hear you got your Steam deck. To be honest, the 2022 crop of games hasn't excited me much. I know Elden Ring is the big deal of the year so far but the whole Dark Souls thing just isn't for me. What I will say is that Shotgun King: The Final Checkmate is the surprise of the year so far. Playthroughs are short but there is so much replay. It's damn hard but gives you a chance if you balance up the prices you have to pay to gain power. There is something very insatiable about going on a final stand you are almost certain to lose yet just might prevail in.

    Innocent Gray are somewhat escapist, I will admit it. The fact there is no sign of a male anywhere and the complete absence of technology are signs of that. But I have to respect that it does the core bits right. Characters with significant flaws wanting to overcome them. Some very likable and some initially very unlikable characters. Mixing in diversity without making itself out to be a champion but making such things occur naturally and fit in. Making me be interested in some things I normally wouldn't be (ballet as a major example). Having some real adversity for characters to overcome. No significant melodrama. Not being afraid of some Western influences. Not indulging in ridiculous ranting or really drawn-out scenes achieving little. Wasn't in the mood to go through them more tonight after how long it took to source a fix.

    Bad End Theater is just glorious. The music is really core to the whole vibe that the art gives. It takes a scenario which could be so bogged down in tropes but drives you to find a way to make the unlikely outcome actually happen and want it once you see everything from the four different perspectives.

    I did make another purchase a couple of days ago on the Steam sale. Cuphead DLC is finally out 5 years after the original. Given Chalice is now playable and there's a bunch of new encounters, that's DLC I'm willing to go in on. I also bought Citizen Sleeper, which actually is legit unlike all these cyberpunk/choices matter wannabes.

    It's hilarious to think Brooklyn may have been their own worst enemy after doing it a decade ago with Garnett and Pierce. But doing it with someone like Durant who just can't handle legitimate criticism, who willingly chose to go with an utter flake in Irving. And they even got saddled with Simmons after Harden racked off. Supposedly the 76ers stand a decent chance to get Irving. But...what would the price be?! Did you see what the damn Timberwolves gave to the Jazz for Gobert...Durant will have one of the worst legacies ever since he just bails whenever things get too hard. And he got triggered by the Warriors winning a title without him?! I know he is one of the best in the last 10-15 years but is the complete opposite of what NBA players used to be. Wouldn't you know that when he ruined free agency and salaries in 2016, he's doing it again in 2022. Why even bother with such fickle, fragile fools.

    I really need to give the Flowers series another shot... I'm kind of mixed on Innocent Gray in general and couldn't get into KnS either. I actually had trouble starting one on Windows 11 but I'm not sure if there was anything to that; its been a while as well.

    I finally got my Steam Deck in hand so I've been setting it up here and there. I did manage to fix my order in the and pay with my Steam Wallet but not without thinking I'd been screwed out of my reservation for a couple of days. I haven't gotten much this summer sale otherwise... I did pick up Persona 4 Arena Ultimax and one of the VN (Dead End Aegis) I've been after... which unfortunately doesn't work on Deck. I might still get Under Night In-Birth but I'm not in the market for much. I'm really intrigued by the art style of the game in your sig (Bad End Theater) but that might have to wait until fall sale.

    I'm kind of curious what will happen with the Durant-stakes and who will be left on the Nets after everything shakes out. My schadenfreude kicks in at the idea of Brooklyn falling apart though it remains to be seen if anybody is even willing to take Kyrie and Simmons at this point. Being stuck with them might be worse than a total rebuild.

    Well...I had a bit of a shock tonight. Suddenly, all 4 parts of the Flowers VNs lost all text. Aka a critical part of them. Eventually found a dev fix. Took a fair while to find and implement though.

    Finished going through the entirety of the second Flowers VN. It was certainly an interesting journey for Erika, given how insular she was in the first VN. Chidori was certainly one very abrasive person to begin with but for reasons that made sense in the long run. The path the two take in the end is believable as well as the leadup to it. After how things went in the first VN, things needed to go better for someone in the second one. Although that said, having seen the extra unlocked by the true ending, Suoh left things on a very tense note.

    Clannad would be the one time I give his work any time. Only because of Kyou and Tomoyo. Nagisa is just a device for a plot and for low hanging fruit sympathy.

    It is a sad state of affairs. Bezos controls the internet, supply lines and media. Cruz is now an open advocate of pay to win game mechanics. The FCC may be about to do a major clamp down on anime and manga which would have a flow-on effect to availability in other Western countries. All that on top of Roe v Wade being overturned is just dire.

    Avs prevailing made one league worthwhile thankfully. Indeed a 2 month gap to the NFL. Guess you could try watching some AFL in the meanwhile?

    Well that just sucks for how you trying to get a Steam deck has gone...It sounded like it was going well for many so you having the opposite experience ain't fair.

    LOL I hate Jun Maeda... in fairness his comedy bits can be pretty good sometimes but his characterizations are almost always abysmal.

    US in the news again for all the wrong reasons. Watching an empire (and I guess a religion) in its death throes is... an experience, if nothing else. Avalanche managed to win the cup so now its the shittiest time of the year for sports here too. NFL in September and World Cup in November at least.

    Good to hear you made out on Steam but they kind of fucked me over as far as my Steam Deck purchase so I'm not too happy with them. I'm still hoping they'll come through but not entirely optimistic. We'll see I suppose. Now I have $450 USD in my Steam account though and nothing to really spend it on.

    Sounds like Jun Maeda causes you even more grief than me.

    Finished going through the Lovers Route of the 2nd Flowers VN. I 'finally' realised those VNs have an auto function...which I desperately need now that it's winter here. It has been a bad week for my back and digestion. I'm pretty much resigned to having to lie down after work until winter is over. It's why I pressed to get Heat 32s cleared in Hades and Persona 4 Golden before winter truly kicked in. I know that winters here are nowhere near the worst, but they're bad enough for me. Just hoping I can make it to October without anything major going wrong. Either way, at least I can use my evenings to get through Flowers with the auto function.
