So Ends Another Good Day ๐ŸŒ™

Today was a pretty good day, other than a bunch of bug bites bothering me after mowing the lawn yesterday (no seriously… they are driving me mad! I got so many, too!)

Letโ€™s see… Tomoyo seems to be improving (again), I got a LOT of commission work done, played video games, adjusted my Internet blocks so that now the amount of time I spend on FA is also drastically reduced, and made a double-extra-check to ensure certain sources of online toxicity were blocked down to a molecular level on my permanent block list, the one I can never access even when my blocks are off.

Iโ€™m using a new Internet blocking app. Switched from FocusMe to Cold Turkey Blocker and itโ€™s so much better, less buggy, and more flexible. I can access FA at certain times now, but some profiles that could have been sources of just… bad stuff, are blocked forever and I can never see them again. That feels SO good. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

As far as games, Iโ€™m still playing Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ and itโ€™s fun. I thought Lupin was the main love interest and I like him a lot, but I havenโ€™t figured out how to pursue him, so my interest went in another direction. But as far as looks, heโ€™s definitely the best…

Maybe itโ€™s the top hat. Anyway I ended up going after Van Helsing somehow. I like the hard to get type.

Yeah… Iโ€™m sure thatโ€™s all it is…

ROFL what

Overall thoughts so far: this story takes so many liberties with its historical inspirations that the glossary is basically to explain how X thing that means this in the real world breaks the rules in the world of the game. Itโ€™s so blatant that itโ€™s funny. Vampires make ZERO sense in this game. The dog sounds like a barking human rather than a dog. And Iโ€™ve caught a few typos.

But overall… I can see myself playing it a few times, and getting the sequel.

Anyway Iโ€™m tired and I have a long day of commission work ahead so itโ€™s goodnight from me!

Thoughts On Remember11 (So Far) And On Disorder Diagnoses

Random screenshot is random. I just liked it and wanted something to go with this post.

I’m playing two visual novels at this time, one with Christopher and one by myself. The image above isn’t really spoilery but anything else I say after this probably will be. Also, content warning for huge ass ramble on professional diagnoses of mental illness. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Ever17 ~the out of infinity~

We finished Ever17! Honestly, I thought we would be playing it for weeks and weeks… as in, months… and there isn’t really a game I can play every single day for a minimum of an hour a day for months on end. When doing that, it is inevitable that at least a few days I’ll play when I really don’t feel like it.

So when we first started, half of me was excited, but the other half slightly dreaded it… just a little… I didn’t know if I would like it, and if I found that I didn’t, I’d have to still play the whole thing, if I didn’t want to disappoint Christopher. ๐Ÿ˜…

Now… I wish it HAD lasted months… it ended too soon.

While I admit I didn’t want to play every single day and sometimes I wished I could skip a day and have time in between to look forward to it more (which would apply to any game or book I am enjoying, frankly, as well as any tv show I am watching) on the whole, I immensely enjoyed the game.

The rest of this post includes written spoilers as well as spoilery art taken directly from the game, so it’ll be under the cut. IF YOU HAVEN’T PLAYED EVER17 AND YOU INTEND TO SOMEDAY, YOU SHOULD STOP READING HERE. Much like with Undertale, once you spoil this shit, you’ll never be able to enjoy it properly.
