I remember the one time I got to go to Pax, and meet some of the GB staff. A friend who couldn't attend had asked me to give Vinny a hug for her, and not only did Vinny give me the hug, he smiled, and said, "And here's another hug, just for you."

Gonna miss all three of them, so, so much, but I still wish them the best, wherever they go in life. <3

@slax: Yeah, Haru getting some more screen time was good, and I appreciate all the weird things they add to her. Like how much she talks about chopping wood (I guess to explain her ax skills)??? And her driving!! But also all the serious stuff too.

@cjduke: Yeah, you can definitely just drive her motorcycle around zooming through enemies, haha. Morgana can turn into the van mid fight and do basically the same thing too.

@nodima: You know, when I first started playing the game, I actually tried it on Lethal, haha. It was neat having the enemies die so quickly, but me, right when literally starting the game, a little less so, haha.

Yeah, the Khan was a good villain, certainly not really what I was expecting. Though I didn't really go into the game with any expectations either way about any of the story stuff.

And yeah, the game certainly has a respect for institutions like the samurai, or the feudal lords (for lack of a better term) that based on my (granted rather limited) knowledge of the time, was probably not really deserved. But for as "grounded" as the game is (ie, not fantastical/magical), it still is a fantasy with regard to the "noble samurai," and all that. Which is to say I more or less agree with you, and the fight at the end did feel a bit forced. That's why I let the Uncle live, despite his asking to be killed.

The SotC remake is one I've been itching to play again, but I'm holding off until I can get a PS5. It has a 60 FPS mode that my PS4 Amateur sadly can't make use of.

@bigsocrates: Oh, don't get me wrong, I think the Switch is really great for what it is. In a vacuum, I think the price I paid for it is totally fine, and I've played some great games on it! It's just sometimes I get caught up on worrying about stuff, especially when money is involved. But by and large, I've really enjoyed the Switch and glad I finally got one.

I was going through my Origami King screenshots before posting this blog and that reminded me of the coffee scenes! I had somehow forgotten when writing the text, haha.

Yes, walking uphill, both ways is definitely the intended way to read my blogs! :D

@bigsocrates: Well, I bought the Switch for Dead2y Premonition. What happened with Animal Crossing was that all my friends were playing it, so obviously I wanted to too. Problem was there weren't any in stock long enough to get one until several months later, by which time everyone had stopped playing Animal Crossing, and I no longer wanted to pay $60 knowing I'd be all alone. Also, I have to say you're the first person I've ever known to read my writing on an Xbox, haha!

@undeadpool: A friend I was playing with today said the most recent patch did adjust some things in the combat, like Adaptoid AI, some other stuff I forget, and some of those more irksome things were a bit less irksome, so they're patching it in the right direction!

@undeadpool: OH, they must be the enemies that drain your power meters!

Also in Dark Souls' favor is that they don't ever pit you up against anything resembling the number of enemies this game does.

Still, with the right balance changes, and a healthy injection of more hashtag content I think it'll be good fun for a long time to come.

@undeadpool: Yeah, as someone who doesn't read the comics, I don't know what spin is, haha. I guess I could go into the codex and read what it is on the enemies. But yeah, the biggest game play complaint (in terms of just the core combat) for me (and my other couple friends I play it with when we can) is stuff like getting shot from off screen, staggered out of whatever I was doing, getting staggered into another hit, etc. From what I understand they're patching the game as fast as they can (a big patch with a ton of bug fixes should be coming today or tomorrow), but I hope they do balance and adjust some of this stuff, for sure.

Yeah, my "issue" with Cap is more that I'm just (whether I should or not) comparing him to Chris Evans, which isn't fair. I like him more in the little asides during elevators and such than in the story cutscenes. Though if I didn't have subtitles on I'd swear he wasn't saying "duck this" during his Steamroller move.

@cjduke: I would definitely say wait until a price drop in your case. Especially the more I hear your general thoughts on the MCU, I do think a lot of my having fun with this is because I do love those movies and characters so much, you know? Like, I still think the characters are varied enough once you level them up sufficiently, but it takes longer to do that than it should. I have a lot of fun bouncing Cap's shield around big groups of enemies partly because it's cool on its own, but also because I like the character a lot.

Also, I forgot to mention it in the blog, but apparently (I think this may be based solely on what people have hacked from the game's files on PC) they're planning on adding 18 new characters over the first year. If they're adding new content that frequently (assuming this averages out to slightly over one a month and not like, they add 12 six months from now), it might be best to wait anyway and see how much more is added/changed to the game.

After thinking about it some more, kinda glancing through some of the other comments (but not fully reading them because I was not really feeling in the mood to actually engage in conversation at the time yesterday), this may be more of a Destiny 1 scenario than I originally thought. In the sense that there's a really fun core here if you're into that thing (though I think this sort of brawler probably doesn't have as wide of an immediate appeal as Destiny's FPS combat), but there's not really enough there to keep anyone but the obsessives going after finishing the story.

Anyway, I'd say wait and see what their cadence for updates ends up being. Could be a year from now this game has its Taken King moment and I can sit here smugly saying I enjoyed it all along, or could be the game just peters out and the weirdos like me pop in every month or so to try out the new hero, and then let it sit.
