Rundown (8/25-8/31) The Pursuit of Hard Work

While working at my office job I frequently catch my assorted co-workers ceasing whatever task they were in the midst of or simply passing time by socializing with others.  It is an activity that I understand in small instances, but many of their conversations go on for 15 or more minutes, and center around unrelated minutiae rather than anything work-related.  Which I personally find to be… wrong at least to some degree. I approach work with a very regimented and task oriented mindset, and while I do take time to check my email or RSS feeds on occasion, I always go back to whatever needs to be done, and try to finish the task in an efficient manner.  I suppose this is just due to how I have a more serious work ethic, but it regularly surprised me to see people take such a lax approach to their professions, especially when they have families to take care of. Maybe that’s the right approach to take, and I’m just a fool for working so intently, or maybe they’re just a bunch of slackers.  I dunno.

Rundown (9/16-9/22) I Welcome Our New Koopa Queen Overlord

Bowser Peach Best by MariTheLilimRemember how last week I was befuddled by the notion of Toadette obtaining a Royal Crown power up to become Peachette, as demonstrated in the reveal trailer for New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe?  While doing so, I also wondered what would happen if other characters got ahold of the item, though I never would have expected much to come from this.  Then somebody made a comic featuring Bowser using a Super Crown, and turning into “Bowsette”, which in turn sparked a slew of confusion and fan art.  I have made it no secret that I like TG stuff, and seeing something like this pop up and become a big deal is akin to a miniature Christmas for me, as it is rare that such a niche interest gets meaningful exposure.  Plus, the sheer quantity of art that has been made is downright absurd.  I thought that the Fatal Cutie Terry Bogard craze was the best I was ever going to get, but this makes that look like the Mario Odyssey possession craze, which was so upsettingly small!

Rundown (2/22-2/28) My Output Has Been Murdered; Prepare the Bullets of Justice

DR2 Feel the DesPair You Little CuntI am aware that my output for reviews has lessened, but Neptunia was a massive time investment, and I just shelved World End Economica after a few hours, as I found the game to be more irritating than it was interesting.  The main character is something of an entitled brat who does not respect humanity’s past, makes his money by playing the stock market, wears a scarf and shorts, and is a blatant misogynist, and I quite frankly was sick of both him and the side characters.  The visual novel is also pretty irritatingly written, with most of its script coming off as awkward or as if it was not read through prior to the game’s publishing.  So there will not be a review of it despite my tweets bad mouthing the game, as I’d rather play… Um… I’ll pick something.
