I can agree with your criticisms for the most part.

The fact that Nahida also appeared at the party by occupying the Traveler's body also seemed sort of unnecessary... but I guess her appearing in...

I still have the character quest to do, probably tomorrow. I have lots of thoughts that I'll probably capture later as well, but on the whole I'm satisfied with the plot resolution. They carefully...

I still think you can't be serious.

This is a high-stakes negotiation tactic. It's leveraging the fact that the Ukrainian military has gotten dependent on Starlink so SpaceX is pressing their...

I won't proclaim to know the full objective truth by any means, and I assume by default that there is some degree of at least "message shaping" (editorializing) via omission if nothing else. I think...

Yes, because, as I explained before, in Japan dubbing is done before they animate the flaps, and in other languages it has to be done after. They are not going to re-animate the flaps to match each...

Yes, I know. The main reason they can't do that in the U.S. is because in Japan they record the voices before the voice flaps are animated, so the flaps match the voices. In other languages, they...

The in-game issues list was updated just tonight to note what seems to be this situation and says they're going to fix it, so yeah... definitely seems like a bug.
