I felt like the epilogue was incredibly self indulgent on Rockstar's part. They told a really good story that had a really good conclusion. We absolutely did not need to know via 10 hours of gameplay exactly how we got from the end of RDR2 to the beginning of RDR1.

I love Shows, the Live tab, how the 4 separate podcast branches were united, and that the site remembers where I left off mid-podcast.

The new logo is fine, don't hate it, don't love it. It's serviceable.

I don't like the ludicrous size of the top slot on the home page, the "thanks for being a premium member" box, the fact that I can't mark episodes of shows as "viewed", and how the option to embiggen videos is gone. Oh, and why are the forums gone from the front page? Weird design choice.

I absolutely hate the autoplaying videos. This REALLY needs to change.

Overall, I think the redesign is promising, but definitely needs some work.

The absolute shitshow that was the 2016 US elections have probably turned me into a 3rd party voter for life.

Anything that impedes my movement in games where movement is especially fast/fluid. Biggest example is Dying Light. Anytime I got grabbed by a zombie I found it just irrationally enraging.

A more recent example is Warframe. At least 50% of my enjoyment of that game is the ludicrously fast movespeed, but certain missions have a lot of enemies that can knock you down for a disappointingly long period of time.

Ashley is by no means irredeemable, but I found her 100% unlikable. Choosing Kaiden over Ashley was maybe the easiest decision I've ever made in a game.

I have been going through this journey myself, although I'm in a bit of a pattern that goes:

-Finish one KH game

-Start on the next one right away

-Find myself stopping after about two hours

-Take a couple months before coming back to it

So far I've finished 1, Chain of Memories, and the prologue of 2. This time I got pulled away by the siren song of Europa Universalis IV (again). Probably going to have to pick up the pace a bit if I want to be done in time for 3.

Written user reviews for video games are perhaps the most worthless form of user reviews, which are already almost completely worthless.

Standard wallet/keys/phone for my pockets, but if we're counting my work backpack (which is with me most of the time) then it's a whole host of IT equipment. Laptop, various chargers, ethernet cables, screwdriver kit, cable tester, safety glasses, etc. Think there's a hard drive dock in there right now?
