At the risk of further increasing the mods' anger meter from this derailment about "fucking capitalism"...

@theodoricfriede: No BS question: Do you know what a "stock buyback" is? And how private equity firms get accused of practicing "vulture capitalism"?

In this post-Reagan deregulation, post-2008 recession (Is "The Big Short" [2015] movie a good pop explainer of how that played out?) world, I don't see how a person can look at these flailing, gambling c-suite executives and still think that the only reason why people get fired or divisions shut down is simply that they weren't a sustainable business.

FCGH is cheeky cry of frustration that has endured in the Waypoint Radio podcast around the time of a new year clocking in and the website seeing Danielle Riendeau depart and later land at Fanbyte (rip). But, and I can only speak for myself on this, the frustration it points at is how "late capitalism" has gone away from providing a competitive market for goods and services (never thought of art criticism as a service, but yeah it is a service to society) and in to a twisted realm of gambling and big dick dueling where it isn't enough to make some money, but all the money.

Peace, duder.

There's a lot of subscriptions and Patreons out there, no shame in picking and choosing what you want/vibe with.

Ah, Gore Magala.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate was the breakout entry for me after crashing my head in to Freedom 2 and Tri and bouncing off. It's nice to see the purple, frenzy wyvern back!

"Shez."

This is looking good. Well, it's looking more junky like the last Fire Emblem Warriors game that had a higher frame rate option. Hopefully this means Omega Force will do better to avoid the performance troubles Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires have.

Speaking of Empires, is there a little more of that in Three Hopes? Maybe that the freeform map domination... but... well, I don't know since I've never tried an Empires iteration of a Musou/Warriors game.

I've enjoyed the sillier long plays and exclusive hang outs.

These days, I've accepted that I'm just helping to pay for the staff's salaries and getting some nice site perks (i.e. no ads) as a result.

I'm hoping for an official confirmation and teaser for Xenoblade Chronicles 3. The rumor reporting from last year has me eager and anxious to see Monolith Soft's next game.

Technically, Monolith Soft has been owned by Nintendo for some time. I've enjoyed the voice work, English or Japanese, in the Xenoblade games to varying, mostly high, degrees. The English VO for the first Xenoblade game holds a special place in my heart. The Japanese VO in Xenoblade 2 has some of my favorite seiyuu.

The English VO for Fire Emblem: Awakening I thought was alright. Competent anime dub from (I think) the LA talent pool.

The application didn't work for me in the morning, but using the web site worked fine.
