I still haven't finished Pillars of Eternity (which I backed). It will take me longer to finish it than for them to make Pillars of Eternity II, so no.

I think what the union is asking is completely fair. I don't like the way the argument is going, though. The usage of the term "residuals", for example, sounds a bit misleading since what they're asking for is specifically bonuses for large successes. The companies trying to fight them off is also obviously trying to pit the ill-treated developers against the voice actors, to their own benefit. Their tactics just seem destructive for the industry.

But yeah, I'm also perversely looking forward to terrible voice acting by the CEOs' nephews and nieces and developers =P

If inclusive participation is a concern, why have a beard-growing contest at all? (I like the beard shaving idea, though.)

In my research, it seemed like the SNES version of VI is pretty much the best way to go, and it's working out fine for me so far.

I've played 4 and am playing through 6 and 9. I'm voting for 6, because it's a good time so far, and it really hits the ground running from the very start. I don't think going back to the older Final Fantasy 4 afterwards will be an issue, especially when it has pretty decent modern remakes.

I think having expectations is fine. Having zero expectations out of anything might even be impossible. It's a matter of preventing our expectations from colouring our experience. An important thing to understand is that we can still enjoy things we are critical of. Separating our expectations from reality is a difficult thing to do, but it's worth trying!

"Hype", on the other hand, is something different than personal expectations. I don't know, I just try to ignore it because I realise that none of it matters. Video games and movies being good or bad have very little effect on my general well-being! I have better things to worry about in my life.

I'm not really familiar with photography myself, but The Wirecutter (link) has a pretty good shopping guide for cameras.

I'm tearing up just thinking about Link's grandma. She reminds me of my own late grandma...

Speaking of Zelda, I'm so excited to hear the music in Breath of the Wild. The bits and pieces of impressionist music I've heard in the demos and trailers sound so beautiful!

Okay, I think this time I will try to make something. Thanks for organising this once again, and good luck everyone!
