    Adding MOBA features hardly differentiates it from any class-based team shooter, IMO. They don't play differently enough to not feel the same to me. Valorant is just CSGO and Overwatch is just TF2. This new game would just be... Battleborn?

    Yeesh. Here I was hoping their next project would be something, I dunno, not derivative? Adding more clutter to an already oversaturated genre? But most importantly, I'd hoped it'd be something I would have had even the slightest desire to play. Hope that's not the only thing they have cooking

    I definitely caught that vibe reading through it, even without digging deeper into names. They started droning on about how the verisimilitude of lab grown diamonds is a direct analogue for the foundation of a relationship and my first thought was "oh, it's just diamond mining companies huffing copium". You put it much more eloquently though haha

    I've softened up a bit on 3DCG anime. Used to hate it as my only experience with it had been godawful time/money-saving 3D renders in 2D anime. But two shows had impressed me: Beastars and Dorehedoro. Highly recommend these two, especially Dorohedoro. Such a strange series.

    Think you may just be depressed, friend. I experience that same thing all the time. I never know what to do really, when it happens. Sometimes playing a game outside my comfort zone or forcing myself to learn/play a song on guitar helps me push through it, but sometimes nothing really helps the general anhedonia. In cases like that, I've learned that it's okay for me to have done basically nothing all day; I'll watch youtube videos all day or even take a nap. I don't think it's so bad to have a day full of nothing. Maybe your brain needs it.

    I've been enjoying the hell outta that cute little game, too. I love that zybellium and perk points are very finite resources, and you really have to lean into a certain niche if you want to go far. You can absolutely make a bad build if you spend zybellium on the wrong thing or take a perk point that doesn't benefit you. Still can't get past compression tier 8 lol

    Maybe experiencing actual prejudice and attacks on their selves prevent the manifestation of baseless paranoia? That's my running theory

    Felt like I'd update you. Just sent HR my job rejection email. To have been lied to the way I was honestly makes me sick. My hair is important to me and I'm sure there are plenty of other positions where nobody will give a damn about my long hair. Thank you for your cynicism; it made me realize I need to value myself sometimes.

    No compensation whatsoever. Just drafted up my job decline email. Got told on two occasions that my hair was okay, and then suddenly it wasn't. I didn't grow my hair our for 4 years just because I thought it would be funny. Shit's important to me. I can only hope I'll be able to find another opportunity

    This is the plan for sure. Maybe they like me and offer a promotion to level 2 after a year or so, or maybe they don't and I take that sweet, sweet resume fuel with me elsewhere. Gonna have to...

    As for the immediate job, if you're willing to cut your hair, take the job, get a year or two of experience, shop out your resume (because it's easier to get hired when you're already doing the work) and jump ship as soon as something better comes along. Get established, and grow your hair again once you're valuable enough that your manager will go to bat for you. At that point, people will know your flowing locks mean you're a great and powerful wizard.

    This is the plan for sure. Maybe they like me and offer a promotion to level 2 after a year or so, or maybe they don't and I take that sweet, sweet resume fuel with me elsewhere. Gonna have to swallow my pride I think to get to where I want to go, much as it chagrins me. Thank you for your (indeed cynical but nonetheless valuable) advice. Love the wizard comment lol

    I've always been a fan of the more hands-on stuff. Taking care of servers/users on servers is something I've always been interested in. I don't know if programming is much my style, but I like general maintenance and improvement things; keeping things up and running, upgrading when it's time, adding user accounts to servers and setting up perms and all that. That probably sounds super vague but vague is my knowledge of the umbrella of IT
