The Last of Us Part II rocked me to my core and I've thought about it daily since finishing. It helped that, beyond my my enjoyment of the first game, I had essentially no expectations—no spoilers, no reviews, avoided all discussion and discourse—and basically went into it blind. I'd originally planned to plow through it between Christmas Day and New Years (yeah, I held off that long), but ended up having to step away from the game for days at a time because its violence and unfolding perspectives were getting to me. Felt almost like the video game equivalent of playing through Apocalypse Now or Incendies. I never want to forget the feeling of that first playthrough.

I'll never play this thing but I am genuinely happy for the vocal segment of Sonic fans who are open about having fursonas. This sounds like a fairly savvy person at Sega understands the series has that appeal and said, "Why not?"

Vin Diesel is mixed race. According to Wikipedia, while he never met his father he seems pretty confident that he's not all white, and he even looks a fair bit like some mixed race dudes I've encountered.

@squirrelgod: The word confederacy should be banned from all conversation! Actually every word that could be considered vaguely offensive to anyone anywhere ever. All language must be milquetoast!

On a serious note I'd say 99.9% of the playerbase doesn't know what the Confederacy's flag looks like. I played 10 years of Brood War, probably around 7000 hours or so; I don't know without looking at it beforehand.

Except the Confederacy are 100% portrayed as colonizing villains, so I doubt anyone is getting up in arms about this.

I will miss his laughter. That sounds really cliche but that man has a LAUGH. You could hear him in the background of the Lang/Johnny/Boyes shitshow last night and he was like a real life laughtrack in the best way.

My favourite Walker Guffaw was when the infamous hand sign was revealed in Contradiction.

I am legitimately broken up with this. Like one of my Internet dads is moving away. But I know he'll rock at anything else he does and ascend to Professor Walker.

Oh I only wish to affect my character's appearance. So if I buy that item from the Londor woman I should still be able to get the dark ending provided I find the remaining three sigils and don't have the Fire Keeper cure me?

I'm playing through DSIII the first time and going for the "best" ending, which requires you to bring eight dark sigils to the Soul of Cinder fight. I have the five from the late Yoel and am generally fine with looking like a zombie, but if you speak to the woman from Londor who shows up after he dies and buy that reverse hollowing thing from her, will it negate getting the dark sigil ending? Also, is the hollowing reversal permanent?

Thanks!
