    swirlingflight inane analysis and story spinning is my passion

    Terraria is the fixation of the week. Blocks and exploring and nature and monsters and numbers go up all mixed together.

    Nioh 2 again. This time trying out the fists. We're doing a Soifon cosplay build so I've got dual swords around too. But they're mostly there for show right now as I don't like them like I do the fists. Also got ninjutsu to build anyway and ninjutsu is just. Real fun in Nioh. BUT THE FISTS YO. The game can get very combo heavy. But like the fists are like. A dedicated combo weapon. They are built for it.

    They got this skill called unbroken which gives you a buff that increases the damage you go with your fists when you do a special before your ki starts to recharge. It stacks up to a 50% increase. Now with things like stance dancing, godly ki pulses, and one of the fist specials you can like...Reach absurd combo games even in the first area of the game? This is just the first three missions and I've already managed to do this well enough to infinite people. And I am guessing that this is just going to get more and more absurd as I go on. Soifon will gain the power of Mukyu Shunko. And it will be amazing.

    Other rad thing about the fists is they are fast and they do a lot of ki damage. It's not as much in one go as the axe, but it gives you a maneuverability the axe just doesn't have. You don't need to commit as hard and you can do things like dash in and out to chip it down. And especially on yokai this is great. Because when yokai lose their ki bars. They have absurd instant hit stun they get stuck in. And the fists are a dedicated combo weapon. This also works on bosses. Meaning that you don't just have a combo game on small things. You can get a totally free and safe combo game on even bosses. It's like SFII levels of stun it's fucking stupid.

    The way the combos work is very freeform too and reminds me of anime fighters. Basically fists turn your Dark Souls game into a fucking fighting game and it is sick as fuck.

    I got pumpkinvale to work on my new laptop and am planning on starting a thread for it in fantown once I figure out screenshots. I wish i could talk people into getting it but its an open world which makes it tough to run for a lot of computers, or something else is up with the game, I dunno shit about computers. All I know is my old laptop was no lightweight and it Did Not like running it.

    I want to make a thread about pumpkin days so i can gush about it but the internet browser is slow on my laptop and I have to figure out which folder my screenshots are on so i can host them on imgur. Hopefully sometime this week/weekend i get the drive to do it.

    Also every title i can think of is too long :(

    Tokimemo Forever With You to practice Japanese. I have so far proven about as incompetent in virtual high school as I was in real high school.

    Also Curse of the Moon 1 and 2. Working through the first one by myself and the second with my boyfriend. The co-op in 2 is really fun. Really captures that Castlevania 3 vibe but with some nice modern touches. Changes up just enough to make the game feel acceptable by today's standards, but leaves enough in tact that I don't get grumbly about shit like having noncommittal jumps. In Classicvania you COMMIT. YOU PICK THAT TIME TO JUMP CAREFULLY. AND IF YOU FUCK UP THAT'S ON YOU.

    but like if you don't like being insta-killed by pits because you jumped poor there's always casual mode which removes the knockback

    hyrax we'll ride 'till the planets collide

    Raft! it's a survival game set in a flooded post-apocalyptic world, centered around building and upgrading a- surprise!- raft. it's definitely a lot simpler than some other survival games, like Rust or Minecraft, but that simplicity also gives it a real focus and unity. find supplies, build raft, survive. it's still in early access, and the world can definitely feel a bit empty at the moment, but it's not terribly buggy or anything. i find the core loop really soothing, especially on peaceful. (depressing existential implications of the story concept aside.) and building a Mad Max-meets-Waterworld-meets-Rust floating base is my complete jam.

    Got Smash Ultimate. Enjoying finally having something I can just pick up and play with randos or friends online.

    I've also really been enjoying World of Horror, an indie game that I haven't backread to see if it was mentioned in here before or not! It's styled like an arcade game where you go around trying to solve mysteries (which really only have a handful of solutions, as again, it's arcade-styled), fight monsters, and stop the seemingly inevitable advent of an elder god invading the Earth. Very Junji Ito-esque, lots of references to big contributors to the horror genre.

    I've been playing Hades for almost a week straight and boy is it addicting. I understand why it's been all the rage all of a sudden. Supergiant really outdid themselves. Gameplay is tight, the characters are fun, and despite it involving a lot of dying I've successfully gotten pretty good and begun enjoying myself thoroughly.

    Downsides: It's grindy as heck. I guess that's to be expected for a roguelike, but if they'd just prioritized some of their flags better I'd feel better about this. I've needed a particular character's conversation to unlock some options by which I can continue the plotlines of three or four other people to pop up for about a dozen runs now and it just won't happen because she has so much dialogue about other things and conversations with other people that it could cycle through instead that the plot-important thing hasn't tripped yet.

    Married one of the interesting npcs, I had to download two more mods because I couldn't get her to move into my house because I had to force the marriage with console since it froze mid-marriage despite trying a few different times and with older saves. Hopefully I can finally move her into our home now. I didn't have this trouble with my children XD right now I've cheated, so she refers to me as spouse and I have my wedding ring I just can't tell her to move.

    I just want a wife, dammit.

    Anyone know of any good face mods? I used cbbe body replacer for a while but i don't like the available clothes for it. I can find nicer nodded clothing for the vanilla body, but after getting used to cbbe faces I'm kinda spoiled. Vanilla faces look nasty now haha. I spent all night looking into clothing mods so I'll do my own research, but if anyone has any they use that ONLY replace the face or is a reskinning of the vanilla body, let me know please.
