nothing makes me happier than to see so many dishes/bugs/etc in my replies that i can't keep up 🥲
Elden Ring at ~35 hours
I think I’m getting decent! I’d made it through Stormveil/Godrick in one go without dying, and tonight I did the same for Raya Lucaria/Rennala. And I’ve done a whole bunch of other miscellany (NPC invasions, dungeons, etc), some of which was quite difficult. I feel more confident now that I can get through this if I want to.
I’m still unsure whether I do want to, though. It requires such a high degree of unbroken concentration that it feels more stressful than enjoyable…
Like a lot of gacha games, Genshin Impact will eventually guarantee the item/character you want after enough pulls, and I'm very close to being able to do that right now. Ironically, scrounging up premium currency by engaging with features I don't normally touch has been pretty fun, and is actually _disincentivizing_ me from spending any money. I would be skipping the good part!
It's finally done. Here's 4000 words on how one weird family had to choose: do we nurture a generation of explosive creative talent that are pioneering a new medium? Or do we neglect and squander all the talent we've attracted in order to put all of our resources into getting our asshole brother's dumb idea turned into a big-budget Hollywood movie? https://blog.information-superhighway.net/pow-zap-comics-on-the-internet-on-the-big-screen-biff
(spoiler: they picked the movie, it's got Owen Wilson in it)
this is a fun interview where a Kickstarter exec, as expected, shows that he has no earthly idea what he's talking about https://www.comicsbeat.com/kickstarter-blockchain-controversy-interview/
