    I bought Deep Rock Galactic on September 14th. Steam tells me: 86.5 hrs last two weeks / 128.4 hrs on record. Last night it said I had over 90 hours in the last two weeks...so...either way...apparently I've been playing more than I've been working my full-time job. Oops!

    The first thought that comes to mind is "how bad was this game originally going to be?" If they can't even get co-op in...how really, truly, horrifically unfinished was this game before it was delayed a year ago...

    My second thought is that I feel bad for my buddy, mostly. Context here. He's been so happy to finally get to play Halo with me with MCC coming to PC...and now we'll have to wait, who knows how long, to play Infinite together. He's pretty sad/pissed about it.

    Having known several iOS developers personally, it's 100% true. Apple will absolutely bully you for any illegitimate1 reason if they feel like it.

    While I despise Epic Games and Tim Sweeney, I would love for their court case to actually evolve into allowing sideloading or 3rd party app stores on iOS. Even though I'll be leaving my iPhone shortly due to recent concerns2, I still want the people staying there to have those options.


    1Not using this term in a legal sense.

    2The on-device CSAM scanning bullshit. Could go into detail, but there's other threads for that.

    My post from last week mostly covers what I'm actively watching right now. I'll just post updates on mood/feeling of the shows so far. Some spoilers ahead, probably, so click each section at your own risk.


    The Aquatope on White Sand

    I'm actually still kinda behind on this one. I've only watched 2 episodes. I've been sitting on the 3rd because I was waiting for GJM to get around to subbing episode 4 and beyond. Understandably, it's a lot of work to subtitle these shows. If they can't do it, it's no problem. I'll just watch the "official" subs if needed.

    I'm eager to watch more, but I found GJM's subs significantly better than official and would prefer those, if possible.

    RE-MAIN

    This is definitely one of my favorites I'm watching right now. The character development is excellent. The suicide fake-out with one of the characters had me anxious as fuck, too. 😱 Anyway, I'm invested with this one now.

    Never thought I'd see the day I'd try a sports anime; glad I did, though!

    Drugstore in Another World

    Still as silly, fun, and cute as ever. Woof!

    TSUKIMICHI

    I'm super glad Tomoe is back. The episode(s) without here were fine, but she's definitely the 1st or 2nd best character in the show. VA does an excellent job, as well. More Tomoe = 🔑 to success.

    I'm excited to see what kind of asshole Rembrandt and Morris turn out to be. Like they said in the show, I'm sure there was a reason the Witch Doctor cursed his wife and kids. Dude's probably a total scumbag. Morris hinted at their previous heinous deeds as well near the end. Regardless, I'm sure Tomoe and crew will handle him easily when the time comes. :)

    Battle Game in 5 Seconds

    Video. That is all.

    Peach Boy Riverside (no spoilers, recommend reading if you've considered watching this show)

    Man...this one was such a let down. The show runner decided to air the episodes out of order and...it's just gotten really, really bad because of that. I think this really could've been great if they'd just aired it in order.

    If you plan on watching this, then I'd recommend waiting until it's over and then watching the episodes in the originally intended order.

    The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!

    Still heckin' kawaii.

    That Time I was Reincarnated as a Slime

    Thank. Fucking. GOD! we finally got past the massive bout of exposition. I enjoy the story and everything, but good lord! I also want to see my Slime & Friends fuck some shit up from time to time!

    Also, this was from two episodes ago, but...god damn! That got me so hype. I was so, so upset when last week's episode was more exposition with no fighting after that sick-ass teleport! 😭


    Edit: Oops! Forgot I watched the first season of My Hero Academia as well. It's alright. Don't have a ton of comments on it at this time.

    A missing apostrophe is ok, I understand the laziness, but a misplaced apostrophe is just unacceptable.

    If you or anyone else has some spare resources, you can also run fishnet for lichess to help them out. I only wish I had more threads I could toss their way to help out.
