1. Hi there, Guest. How are you doing? Have you been well? I hope so.

    OK, with that out of the way, just a little bit of a reminder that regardless of what's going on over at other sites, please leave it there. Inter-forum drama is bad and if you bring that shit over here, you should feel bad.

    And while I'm at it, USE THE "REPORT" FUNCTION. Like the New York City Subway - if you see something, say something. Vigilantism only works in comic books and trust me, no one wants to see you in spandex. (Except Cyan, who looks amazing in spandex.)

    P.S. - ToroidalBoat is a party pooper, but also needs a cat.
    P.P.S. - Holdek is still a weenie.

What are you playing right now?

    I was just playing Kingdom Hearts. I helped the president of China get some honey while protecting him from bees.

    And yes, I brought this up entirely as an excuse to make a "the president of China looks like Winnie the Pooh" joke.

    I just started Yakuza: Like a Dragon, AKA "Yakuza 7: Daigo Dojima is the Fucking Worst"

    So far, unimpressed, but it's the Yakuzies, so I have a primal urge to see it to the end.
    My thoughts (I'm only to the tail-end of Chapter 2, so shit better improve), AKA "Reasons why Daigo Dojima is the Fucking Worst":
    - FUCKIN' DON QUIJOTE WAS CHANGED TO A POLICE STATION???? THE BEST PART OF RUNNING AROUND IN SOUTHERN KAMUROCHO WAS TO HEAR THE DON QUIJOTE THEME SONG!!!

    - Kasuga Ichiban is a tremendous dork. Jury's still out on whether or not this is a good thing. They use his dorkiness to explain the turned-based gameplay (see next.)
    - I can’t get used to the gameplay mechanics. Though I’m fine with turn-based rpgs, Yakuza has never been one and it feels weird and uncomfortable. Do. Not. Like. I find myself constantly trying to combo while in battle.
    -- AND FURTHERMORE, I do not like that I can't just grab a fuckin' scooter and bash a dude's ass inside out mid-battle and instead, have to be near an object for the chance to pick it up. So far, I've only been able to bludgeon dudes with traffic cones, because despite being directly on top of a bike, the game would not let Kasuga pick it up.
    --- WITH THAT SAID, not thrilled that, on the rare occasion I do pick up a bicycle to bash some skulls, it only is used on one enemy, even if they're all bunched together.
    - No karaoke (yet?)
    - Despite the fact that I've spent almost all my money thus far on UFO Catcher, it's harder to accumulate the amount of cash as in previous Yakuzies.
    - There also seems to be less to do. I've tried my hardest to find safe keys for those gold-ass safes, which are usually within a block of said safe. No shinies to signify safe/locker keys, porno trading cards, or other assorted random shit.
    - Holy fucking shitballs, Kamurocho Hills is enormous.
    - Storywise, it seems alright so far, except for the fact that Daigo Dojima is literally to blame for everything that happens because he can't run the fucking Tojo Clan and probably would've been murdered 80 times over by Majima if Kiryu hadn't told him not to.

    NONE OF THIS WOULD'VE HAPPENED IF KIRYU HADN'T LEFT FUCKING DAIGO IN CHARGE OF THE TOJO CLAN.

    I hope my assessment changes as I continue to play the game.

    It's odd how common gas giants with aerial life seem to be in SpaceEngine. :confused:

    What if it's normal for gas giants to have floating life in real life? :cool:

    Karaoke is in the game. Even the Baka Mitai meme song. Cash early is best gained doing a business mini-game which comes by chapter 5 at the earliest iirc. Combat in kicking bikes and signs is a waste of time imo since you do more damage with special moves anyway. Also Don Quixote gone because licensing ran out.

    Also played Skyrim SE since its the 10th birthday of Skyrim. Don't know about Todd's update though. Haven't gotten any of it on my game yet. Also for a side note with mods, the combat mods I see people tought hobestly felt meh and I managed to now appreciate the combat of Skyrim, especially since most mods wanting to be like Dark Souls or Sekiro don't really seem translate well. Wouldn't mind someone making a pack of this shit but then I remember hearing about modders being against it or something.
