    For the record, since you indicated I should give other Tales games more of a look, I watched a playthrough of Zestiria. I found it had some good aspects - Alisha, Rose, Lucas, Edna - but geez, so utterly do-gooder, by the numbers, bleh villain and resolves virtually nothing aside from perseverance/contrast. Was its existence mainly to set up being the complete anti of Berseria? I just don't see how these two are the same game or others in the series. Vesperia bored the utter heck out of me and never seemed to go anywhere. Berseria only needed one hour to set up the protagonist's and villain's motivations, had a treasure trove of character depth, a story with resolution and had the perk of taking an utterly dysfunctional group of not-heroes and making them worth believing in. If anything, looking at the rest has convinced me Berseria really is the exception to the rest of the series, so I'll believe that the rest of the series is effectively the same but I will attest Berseria is not like them since it is intentionally the anti of Zestiria in just about every way possible.

    H happened in S3E4 of Harley Quinn. Holy hell, never thought I'd see a Western title go there. Season 3 justified its existence from that alone but it's been a pretty awesome season already anyway.

    I've been very distracted by Shotgun King: The Final Checkmate. But I've finally completed achievement clears and the even harder victory on King mode, so that was a very challenging but fulfilling experience from an indie gem.

    Had reached the final part of the Flowers finale but lost the mood for it temporarily. Will try to get it done tonight. As for other VNs I should really get to during the rest of the colder months...World End Economica is definitely one I should get to. Also finally need to get a weekend where I'm not stuck in chores and can play FF6.

    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 geez...it 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.

    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.

    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.
