My 5 year old just wants to fish up fish. Like it’s funny the first couple times pulling up an egg but after that novelty wears off, we should be able to turn it off. An event that’s supposedly intended to be fun is actively turning my young kid off from the game. Wild.

Fixing Medicare, which the Republicans have spent the past fifty years trying to dismantle piece-by-piece, is part of Bernie’s plan. The fact that you fell for them hobbling the program as meaning that Medicare can’t work means you’re the dumb, uneducated one here. Congrats on thinking the United States can’t possibly Read more

As someone who replaced a very gross goatee with a much more double-chin-hiding chin curtain years back, I am disappointed that after a decade and a half with facial hair, I will be back to getting carded buying R-rated tickets at the movie theater as a 38 year old man. Read more

I leave my PS4 on sleep mode and have it set to auto-update but for whatever reason it doesn’t do it much of the time. Like this past Friday, I went to go play the newly updated UNIST (now UNICLR), which I had last played about three weeks ago and which had an update pushed to it on Tuesday, and it hadn’t Read more

With Dragalia Lost specifically, I’m just not sure. I still play it everyday after more than a year and when I do go for 10-pulls, I get a 5* pretty regularly. The rates are good (good enough that apparently CyGames has a bit of beef with Nintendo over it—Nintendo wanting the rates to be high and the free currency to Read more

Hey honey, don’t get so defensive. I never said it’s a uniquely American thing. I said it’s a serious problem that Americans have.

I don’t think the whole premise is “hot people shoot each other” (though there’s certainly some of that), but I do agree that D.va always struck me the same way—inspired by Japanese mecha fiction but then made Korean for the sake of having a Korean character. Read more

We JUST got back from a trip and had a secret santay surprise! A little furby named Aikage really came through!

Yay yay, I’m glad you like them! One of the benefits of going to Japan a lot... amazing paper access!

I have finally, after over a year, stopped playing Dragalia Lost daily. I can’t bring myself to suffer through the “end game” content that’s really just bad matchmaking and weird ability checks, and the layers of additional leveling you described make it less fun to me.
