I chose video game dogs for the poll because today marks two years since I adopted my dog, Maya. I didn't really grow up with dogs, so it was a bit of an adjustment taking her in, but she's definitely made our lives better. Every day is an adventure with Maya around!

Yeah, my wife is the same way. She always had at least one dog all her life growing up, if not multiple dogs. Her parents happened to find a puppy on the side on the road on their way to work one day. She had no collar, and they could never find an owner, so I don't know if she just ran away or was simply abandoned (she couldn't have been more than 6 weeks old). However, they couldn't really take on another dog, so my wife (still my girlfriend at the time) asked if I'd take her in, and I think I stunned her when I said yes.

I thought about it, but she's more of a wolf, I thought. I was trying to limit it to actual dogs (although it's possible I made a mistake on the poll in that regard). I didn't even want to count anthropomorphic dogs!

Neo TWEWY beated. I just liked just about everything with this game, and I think it's great regardless of whether you treat it as a standalone game or if you're an old fan looking for something that's faithful to the original game.

A lot of the beginning feels a bit like retreading old ground from a plot standpoint if you already played the first game, but things are really able to come together in the middle and endgame I think. The game's also just a lot of fun throughout. Combat doesn't quite match the quality of the original (which would be a tall order), but it's still a lot of fun, and the style/feel of the game is fantastic.

One other random thing I liked is that several old characters make appearances which is great fanservice, but with maybe only 1 exception it still feels like there's an actual reason for them to be in the game.

It's kinda neat that they're playing an MLB game at the Field of Dreams because I've actually been there! My college girlfriend lived about 30 minutes from it, so we went to visit it when I was up there to see her one time.

I took a year off from fantasy football last year because trying to play during Covid didn't seem worth it, and it was kinda nice not to have to worry about my team!

But our league manager just contacted me and asked if I wanted back in for this year, and I think I'm getting the urge again!

Oh. Well, in that case I'm not entirely sure I could in good faith recommend the movies without the original series.

Well, the first movie maybe (because it's the only one that is more or less a straight adaptation of the series), but past that...

I think you could watch the rebuild movies without watching the TV series, but it's true that they aren't remakes despite what the name would imply.

I also don't particularly like the rebuild movies and wouldn't recommend them from any standpoint, but that's just me and I think I'm in the minority there?

Hrm Im visiting my parents and my mom gave me an old $15 iTunes gift card she found while cleaning the house... Im considering picking up the pixel remaster of FFIII since I always heard that the NES version was better than the 3DS remake (as it stands its probably my least favorite mainline game, but if this actually was better it could probably pull ahead of II?)

On the NES it's actually an impressive game. It's so much more polished than the first two. For instance, text boxes at the bottom fo the screen used to display the damage you and enemies dealt, but FF3 was the first one where it was a little graphic that directly appeared above the characters.

Not a big deal now but it makes it a lot more playable than NES FF1 today.

Ace Attorney exists in a parallel timeline, too! The events of GAA don't match up with our own history.


Gotta comment on this, because I love it, but off the top of my head:

The game must take place before 1851, as that's when the Great Exhibition takes place.

The game must take place after 1923, as a story published then is directly referenced.

The game has to take place after the start of the Meiji restoration, which is 1868

The "window tax" was repealed recently. It was repealed in 1851, which gives us an upper bound up 1861 or so.

The Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Commerce and Navigation, aka "that thing they keep talking about in G1-1," was signed in 1894 and came into force in 1899.

The game has to take place one year after Natsume Souseki arrives in England, which he did in 1900, so it must be in 1901.

The second game is both a year after the first game, which would be 1902 if we trust the last line, and also has to follow Natsume Souseki's return to England, which occurred in 1903.


timey-wimey balls are fun.

Utawarerumono Mask of Truth question: people follow Woshis's orders when he tells them to do something because he's a human and demihumans are engineered to follow human orders. However, demihumans often don't follow Haku's orders when he tells them to do things, even when they're forceful commands. Why is that?

Isn't that how it goes with most series? Like how many Office Christmas episodes did you watch in December? How many summer anime episodes have you watched in winter? Fictional holidays usually don't end up coinciding with IRL holidays I think.

I don't know. Probably a plot hole of some kind. The closest I can come to an answer is that whatever modifications the Mikado made to Haku that have him somehow not tripping Uitsalnemetia's anti-human curse have weakened/negated that ability. But that wouldn't explain how it still works for the others since they still have it and are similarly not affected by the curse.

FE Three Houses: Azure Moon Chapter 17... I think. It's the chapter where the mission for the month looks to be Battle of the Lion and Eagle Part II: This Time It's Personal. Just started the chapter tho.

So, the last chapter seemed like it was trying to foreshadow a Claude heel-turn in what I presume is this battle for ~parallels~ with all the "That Claude he sure was a trickster tee hee. Can we trust him? Be careful, Professor." and I assume somehow we'll end up fighting him so it's another three-way battle but I'm not sure why or how. Like the most straightforward answer is Claude will go with the tried-and-true "jump in when Edelgard and Dimitri have worn the other side down, beat both" strat but like... why? Why even risk making Byleth your enemy lol. He could team-up with Dimitri and like cruise-control to the win lol. Unless part of the Alliance goes rogue during the fight and attacks the Kingdom and Punished Dimitri goes all KILL EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM and just rolls right over Claude trying to explain. i dunno we'll see i guess.

Also, told you three houses you couldn't fool me with Dedue.

That bit in the anime is what inspired me to pick up the manga!

Also, I've watched like two drives but I feel like I can conclusively say that the Jets are gonna be garbage again this year. Wilson has been okay so far but both the O-Line and D-Line have been getting rolled even with the Giants not blitzing so in the regular season I expect Wilson will be running for his life on like every dropback and forced into INTs and hits.

I learned not to take stock in preseason games after the Detroit Lions went undefeated in the preseason and then proceeded to go 0-16 afterwards!

For what it's worth, I think the Jets hired a good coach (dunno about the QB! Saw him play against Tennessee a couple years ago and wasn't impressed, but that's just one game). They just need a couple of good drafts to get some talent.
