  1. No Mania 2, and still no new music collections on Spotify. Ugh.

  2. I put myself on the Wait List for the F4F Varia Suit Samus statue they released last year IIRC. At least, their site said it was available for Wait List, so I did the thing.

    I don't know if I kept my OG Samus statue from ten years ago, or threw it out.

  3. When they're just about the only thing of substance being offered after a year of no Directs, what other reaction could you possibly expect from people for whom anime and JRPGs aren't appealing? You know, people who don't ordinarily mind their inclusion, but would like something that resembles genre variety, even if not all of the genres appeal. Personally, I never go into Directs expecting everything to be aimed at me, I'm always just looking for something, just one thing, to grab me. I don't remember the last time that happened. The very fact that it is the first Direct in a year or more means expectations are naturally high for a slew of announcements from across the genre spectrum. If it had been all Untitled Goose 'Em Ups, I would expect a backlash from those in the gaming community who don't want to play goose games.
  4. Pretty good summation by Dunkey. I don't understand this obsession Nintendo's got with JRPGs, to the exclusion of everything else. I guess their core audience might be into it, maybe, but there's just nothing there for me. Again.
  5. It's like if Sabaton covered the Romans / Byzantine Romans. Love it.
  6. That "just did my taxes" feeling.

      Can't relate.

      @Your Vest Friend Well, in the UK the HMRC will handle your taxes for you, but in the states, 'tis not the case.

  7. Speaking as someone whose primary music experience is Spotify at work (YT is forbidden), I'm real disappointed in the lack of Nintendo OSTs on there.

  8. I thought I heard the voters say
    "Leave us, Donald, leave us."
    Ten days 'til Biden inaugurates,
    And it's time for you to leave us.

    Leave us, Donald, leave us!
    Oh, leave us, Donald, leave us!
    For the tweets are gone and the nukes won't blow
    And it's time for you to leave us.

    Oh, his mood was foul and the tensions high.
    "Leave us, Donald, leave us!"
    He stirred his crowd and they marched on high.
    And it's time for you to leave us.

    Leave us, Donald, leave us!
    Oh, leave us, Donald, leave us!
    For the tweets are gone and the nukes won't blow
    And it's time for you to leave us.

    He hates to serve in this rotten gov'.
    "Leave us, Donald, leave us!"
    The press is loud and there ain't no love.
    And it's time for you to leave us.

    Leave us, Donald, leave us!
    Oh, leave us, Donald, leave us!
    For the tweets are gone and the nukes won't blow
    And it's time for you to leave us.

    He fears the court so he wants four more.
    "Leave us, Donald, leave us!"
    Impeachment looms, he's at Putin's door,
    And it's time for you to leave us.

    Leave us, Donald, leave us!
    Oh, leave us, Donald, leave us!
    For the tweets are gone and the nukes won't blow
    And it's time for you to leave us.

    AMERICA: 2020

    A lot of people need to be arrested, tried and imprisoned for today's events, starting with US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, whose officers opened the gates and allowed the Trumpist terrorist insurrection to break into the Capitol building without offering any meaningful resistance. One terrorist woman was killed earlier after being shot through the neck. Sadly just one. Trump's cabinet secretaries are reportedly openly discussing invoking the 25th Amendment. Impeachment articles are being drawn up by Ilhan Omar. Cory Bush has put forward legislation to get rid of all the representatives who supported Trump's election challenges. There is some hope, but we're on the razor's edge now. Trump's somehow-still-free traitor army of fuckwits remains in DC overnight, I understand, likely to resume its criminality tomorrow. Trump has been silenced on multiple social media platforms at last, but it may be too little, too late. How long before Russia uses its massive SolarWinds hack malware to bring the entire country down in the middle of this chaos?

  11. Doesn't matter, if Section 230 gets repealed then the Internet as we know it will die.

    AMERICA: 2020

    Recent polling suggests that maybe half of "very conservative" voters will skip the Georgia runoffs due to the aforementioned "rigged process," but given how many votes Trump got in the general, and how badly the polls "missed" in states that lack ballot paper trails (oh hi Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham, didn't see you there), I wouldn't count on that for hope this time. Better to just get everyone who wants to vote to the polls. Ossoff and Warnock winning is going to be the only way to guarantee the security of Americans - financially, and in essentially every other area of life.
  13. It's all a matter of perspective - we are all the protagonist of our own story, the sidekick to our friends' protagonists, the background characters in the lives of acquaintances and strangers. We fill a number of roles simultaneously. Imagining people complexly is hard.
  14. Yeah, right now it's this this Christmassy beast:
  15. Mitch better have my money

      Do the idiots even realize that if they don't do this they're probably gonna lose the two seats coming up for grabs?

    2. Patticus


      Georgia's senate seats going blue would be the best financial outcome for every American earning under $75k a year. So, most Americans. Without them, all we get is $600. With them, an additional $1400, plus probably more.

      All I know is, I got debts to pay off, savings to restore, a new phone to look into buying ('mon over here, Moto G9 Power) and I am definitely eyeing up the Samus & Ridley statues on F4F - not to mention some very nice SixthScale Star Wars figures.

      @Harkofthewaa considering they also lost the presidency, that’s not really surprising.

      This just seems more like last minute spite on their end as a result.

      McConnell already got what he wanted, a conservative majority on the Supreme Court for years to come. He doesn't care about anything else, and will happily make other Republicans look better by refusing to hold a vote while they say "Well I'd support it if the vote did happen." He'll always get re-elected so he has nothing to lose. He's just there to make the other Republicans look better while they talk about how they'd do something popular even though they never would and never will have to because of Mitch. 

    5. Patticus


      He is definitely a bullet sponge for the GOP, no denying that, but he clearly wants to keep the Senate a one party chamber. If he can't, Biden can (and must) expand and rebalance the Supreme Court, and work to undo much of what McConnell has been doing these last few years.
