  1. I care about equality dearly and shit like this really angers me anyway, but I can't find the words for how to describe how it makes me feel knowing I have blood relatives and adopted family that are African-American to have to be growing up and still have this shit going on. There's so little I can personally do and it frustrates me greatly.

    Was it still very active?  I went there once after reading Stuart had been arrested and the message board seemed basically dead.  Were the other sites in the Puroresufan network still being updated.  Fairly sure several of those shut down years ago.

    KInda sad to see it go, even though I've only visited it a couple times in the past eight years.  I was active on the site years ago (mid-late 2000's) when Stuart was really into it and getting ahold of backstage notes about contract talks and such.  The last couple years that he updated the main page (he stopped updating in Dec. 2014), his focus/time/commitment had noticeably waned and he was basically just posting results.  At his peak, he was reporting stuff that no one else was getting ahold of for English websites.  He probably had better sources than Meltzer and that had a lot to do with getting me invested in New Japan.

    The stalking and child porn charges still seem surprising, though I never really knew anything about him or had an had any contact with him to form an opinion one way or the other.  

    I think most of his sources were just fans or translations of Japanese sites.

    Oh, I don't doubt that at all.  If anything it shows just how tough she is and I respect that a ton about her.  But I'd gladly take sitting out if it meant not having to deal with Nia's reckless nature again.  If she's up for that then more power to her.

    I think she should hit her with a pirate ship wheel.

    I want to not fully judge this until seeing how this happened.  But given Nia's history she's sadly someone who's guilty until proven innocent when it comes to these type of things.  Feel for Kairi though as with all that's been going on this was the last thing she needed.

    Kairi is a tiny person and is easily ten times tougher than I've ever been.

  5. I've heard amazing things about Control from things I've listened to. 82 on Metacritic is probably a good sign.

     And for @Setsuna, if you're not going to collect all those damn things, literally check what I mean by what you get when you collect all of them. It's one of the dumbest collect-a-thon rewards they could troll you with and it will take you til time stops at your play rate.

    Handing over the 900th seed to Hestu results in Link being given a turd-shaped object with the following description:

    A gift of friendship given to you by Hestu. It smells pretty bad.

    So I ended up going with Zelda Breath of the Wild after Monster Boy, which was a great game btw. Fun, challenging, and a great mechanic with the different forms you take on.

    I hadn't played a Zelda game since Ocarina of Time, which I beat in my teens as a very, very casual gamer. Yeah, I'm still kind of proud of that one.

    BotW is....big. I was not prepared for the sheer size of the map. I'm probably 10-15 hours in, still just wandering around and solving shrines and climbing towers. I've done a bit of the main mission (went to one town to talk to somebody, went to another town and upgraded my sheikah as much as I could). Since then, it's just been wandering and dying a fair bit but that's kind of the point when you're throwing yourself in areas you probably shouldn't be in outfitted in basic gear.

    The only enemy I've found impossible are the lion/horse hybrid dudes who just destroy me everytime. The big cyclops guy was easy. Took out the first one fine, the second one surprised me when he picked up a tree and I didn't really know what he was going to do. Spoiler : he hit me with it and I died. After that, he went down easy enough though.

    In short, enjoying the game. This is the type of game I'll sink 100 hours into and probably still end up at a completion rate of like 50% if it was keeping track because there's no way I'm going to go looking for koroks or explore every nook and cranny because it's just so damn big.

    Quick off-topic, but I've got mixed feelings on the Switch not having a trophy / points system. On the one hand, I'm glad there's no incentive to grind doing something that I wouldn't want to do otherwise. On the other hand, when you're really enjoying a game, it is nice to be rewarded with that *bing* you get when the trophy/points pop.

     

    Don't look for the koroks, you'll save yourself a lot of misery for literally shit. Yes, shit.
