I won that fight. I'm the greatest.

And just to join in the bastard party, the final fight in Trails of Cold Steel 2 is with a boss that can one-shot pretty much my whole party in one go, and my super attacks barely even hurt it, which doesn't matter anyway because when he one-shots them in one go they lose all their ability points anyway.

Fuck's sake.

It's a shame that Jeremy Corbyn is so shit, because is I like so much of what he says and his politics, and the fact he doesn't back down from them.

This thought brought to you by an article showing how all the party leaders have voted on abortion in the past few years. Including some unfortunate opinions that apparently belong to Tim Farron.

A tale from Trails of Cold Steel )

Just when you're getting depressed with life and all people everywhere, a ray of sunshine falls upon you.

Speaking of rays of sunshine, in Trails of Cold Steel today I chose to do a bonding event with the commoner boy (who I love). It was a visit to a technology institute, and I thought they'd finally talk about his love of technology that he obviously has and they never mention. Instead, as the main character and he were about to go through the doors, they were interrupted by some scientists who were testing out their newly-invented remote control cars. It turned into a situation where they were asking the main character and the commoner boy to have a race with the cars, and then they said ideally there should be three people racing. And I thought "Am I going to get to choose the third person, I will choose the noble boy!". But no, the commoner boy chose himself, and HE CHOSE THE NOBLE BOY. Then at the end of the race they were neck-and-neck and got consumed by a desire to defeat each other, and the noble boy's offering to the situation was "Kneel before me, fool!". Like, SLOW DOWN THERE JUSIS. Maybe keep some things under your hat.

Politics )

I love Mass Effect: Andromeda. I really love it, and people in general hate it, and it makes me really sad. I love the main character, I love the story, I love the things going on with her (/him) and her (/his) family, I love the companions, I love the random characters you meet, I love the general gameplay of just randomly sorting out planets for people to live on. I love the combat, I love the weapons, I love the way it feels to move, I love the powers. It is buggy, like people say, but they've fixed the worst of that now, and it never at any point stopped me from really enjoying the game. But it's got a really negative reaction, 'even apart from the bugs', and I just don't understand it. Part of me think it's just me being contrary, and loving it because everyone else hates it, especially because it started getting a negative reaction even before it came out when people thought it was being 'too PC' (a guy literally wrote an article called 'Why aren't any of the female characters in Andromeda attractive?', even though some of them are literally the most beautiful video game women I've ever seen in my life, and it was incredibly gross). But that doesn't really explain the fact that I love it, and want to play it all the time, and want to go back to it whenever I stop playing it. I've never been that contrary. I feel like I'm starting to notice a pattern where games that are largely about exploration and building something tend to get a negative or tepid reaction, meanwhile the games that are essentially about a lone wolf, who doesn't have the backing of their government/people, trying to kill something no-one thinks they can kill suddenly do super well. And. It's very disheartening. Because I quite like the lone wolf games, but I love the exploration/building a future games, and it's upsetting to me that maybe people just won't make those in the future, because apparently nobody likes them. For some reason.

This a video game problem, and it probably won't mean much to most people. I'm sorry. In Trails of Cold Steel I forced the noble boy to go on a quest to help the commoner boy's friends/bullies from his old neighbourhood, and it was better than I could have ever dreamed. He said, "I didn't know you spoke delinquent".
