I've been noticing this for ages too. It looks like my preference cookies are being reset every time I start a new session?

Haven't had the time to read much lately, but I devoured My Lesbian Experience With Loneliness recently and really loved it. Felt maybe a little called out hahaha.

Thinking about it all the people I've met online in the past few months and they have definitely been relationships that at least had a sexual component (though usually not a romantic one). That's probably because of all the nudes I've started posting post-transition though and like, being more confidant sexually in general.

But also I guess I just don't play online games anymore anyway? I don't really have the time or energy for grouping up with folks to play a game nowadays. Like, I'm growing up and I have responsibilities. I usually just want to sit with something that like, actually says something. Dedicate my time to something really worthwhile, y'know? And playing a game with some friends doesn't really do that for me.

And then there's all the younger kids starting to play things online and it feels like so many of them only play like one game with a core group of friends they know from school?

I dunno I'm just rambling.

I've been playing through Persona 4 with my mum and I fucking hate Yosuke so fucking much oh my god. He's constantly so gross to the girls and the constant homophobia is just argh. Like there's a bunch of things that really rub me the wrong way in that game (and Atlus' stuff in general), but just so much of it is caused by Yosuke in P4.

First of all, that's pretty cool that you're playing through P4 with your mom. I wish I could sit my dad down for the 80 hours it would take to go through that game (longer in Golden).

It always pains me to see how much a lot of people seem to hate Yosuke, because he was probably my favorite character in that game and my favorite companion/best friend character ever. I played this game for the first time while I was still in high school, and I feel like Yosuke perfectly embodies a lot of the youthful ignorance that's present in most high school students I've met (or at least that's how it was in my school). Obviously that wouldn't make you LIKE him per se, but I thought he was very well written for the stage in his life he was at. Also, the thing that always appealed to me about Yosuke above all else was how loyal he was to all his friends and how much he genuinely cared about them. Even though you could say that for most of the cast, I felt it from him the most. I also found his unrequited love for Saki to be incredibly relatable, and the way he cared about her and wanted to avenge her, even after he found out she hated him, was incredibly charming to me.

To each his/her own, though. It's pretty cool that game characters can be so divisive.

Part of what makes me hate him so much is that I knew people just like him (and to some degree I was like him in highschool) and we were all shit-bags to people who were different to us. His line about wondering if he was "going to be safe" with Kanji in their tent is just the embodiment of casual homophobia. And it being rolled up into the way Atlus always treats queer characters just makes him almost the personification of their shitty attitudes to queer people.

I'm probably going to end up not playing P5 because of those attitudes and it's a real bummer because I otherwise like these games, but it's just too much for me to handle.

@robtea: Thanks for continuing to support this! Unfortunately the latest Firefox version doesn't seem to work? Or at least for me it doesn't. I'm using v53.0 (64bit).

@robtea: Hey, if you're still supporting this I think the new video player has broken it.

About a 7. There's a lot of games I really want to play right now, but I just don't have either the time or the energy or the lack of anxiety required to pick them up and play them. I'd love to play more Night in the Woods or Ladykiller in a Bind, but story-based games just paralyse me with anxiety a lot of the time. I'm playing through Persona 4 with my mum right now which is nice. But as far as new stuff, there's just so many games out that I don't have the ability to download in a reasonable amount of time. It takes me about a week to download games nowadays.

Work is also currently super stressful and draining and I've got a whole bunch of personal stuff going on. I want to be excited for games, but there's just too much happening right now.

EDIT: That was maybe oversharing on the question idk got a lot going on right now
