None of my friends I talked to today like April Fool's. I really need to make some new ones smh

So will I play more Crusader Kings today or will I keep my promise of not playing and proving to myself that I'm not addicted and can totally stop whenever?

I'm currently 42h into Pokémon Unbound, I have only 4 badges and there's no end to the main plot in sight. What a gargantuan behemoth that game is.

damn, almost a month since I last posted. Uhhhh Sinnoh remakes look like ass, Legends Arceus looks promising. K good night o/

nintendo markets nostalgia so they can sue you later for replicating the games in your memory

Fuck that ugly half-broken mess Game Freak puts out. Who needs 3D if it looks like it's 3 generations old.

I mean, imagine a Pokémon game with these graphics. Literally heaven.

Pokémon. But developed by the Octopath Traveller Devs. Glorious modern Pixel Art.

Ever stop to think about how, in our modern world, we basically have no signifier for quality?

Price does not equate to quality. Many expensive things are uniquely shitty.

Brands are now meaningless. Who even owns kodak anymore? Is your Pyrex made of pyrex? (Spoiler: no! Not if it's new.)

Success can't equal quality, many successful products succeed due to planned obsolescence or other market manipulation.

The best way to know if a thing is any good is go ask someone who has one.

mf won't let me upload screenshots of my epic valheim build grrr

Nothing beats the comfy feeling of taking a pullover off the heater and immediately putting it on. So waaaarm~

remember to pirate good things that bring you joy but are made by bad people.
depriving yourself of things you enjoy lets them win, but you don't need to let them gain anything from you either.

Also just that feeling of being good at something you do for the first time. It's so good. I really needed something like that in my life tbh

I. Am. So. Happy. Seriously, I never expected GMing would be this rewarding. Sure, preparation is hours and days of work, but it's so worth it. Think I had more fun than I ever had as a player.

I GM'd my first one shot today and it was absolutely amazing!!!! I did so well with fleshing out the scenery and bringing the NPCs to life, and the players were so engaged and almost always in character and perfectly responded to cues and added their own personality to the campaign.

Websites that redirect you to the main page after logging in, what's wrong with you?

Can we talk about how it's not okay Signal notifies literally anyone who got your number when you join the service?

only it turns out at the end the friend is an AI and has already been travelling around with them, and just needed time to upload themselves so they could be with theirr friend properly, hence the road trip.

(The sequel is them gettting parts to make a robot body for them so they can hug :D )
