General reminder: I don't check this account super often & it mostly functions as a backup for my twitter but I do check it!! Pls don't feel weird if my responses are late a couple days or something

as always, my takeaway from P5S is "damn it would be cool if a Persona game was good"

Show thread

the (seemingly) siloed nature of its development harms it way more than I expected it would. That said, it's still fun, the interactions are good, and the new chars are really likeable! I just wish it had that extra bit of quality that the Persona spinoffs always seem to lack

Show thread

I'm still going to finish it, b/c I love seeing these kids, but it just feels like typical Persona wasted potential in those bits. There's an entire mechanic around "interacting with stuff far away from you" that you'd think would fit perfectly with P5R's hookshot... but... nope

Show thread

Though this all comes with the standard Persona spinoff caveats - the chronological placement of the story means that very little character growth can happen, the lack of *any* QoL improvements from P5R feel glaringly obvious, there's no Yoshizawa. All of that stuff weakens it.

It's still goofy and over the top, but battles are quick (like they were in P5) and super stylish (like they were in P5), so I can't complain. It feels like a completely different style of game than Hyrule Warriors was, and while I liked that, I much prefer this

Show thread

turn-based JRPG combat always feels like an... abstraction of combat in many ways, and P5S feels like it's removing the abstraction layer, since you're now pressing the button and swinging the weapon or whatever. Being able to pause time and do Persona magic also works real well

Show thread

Been playing Persona 5 Strikers and while I'm not an expert in the genre (I played Hyrule Warriors 2 and thought it was pretty fun), I'm astounded at how well P5S was able to adapt the flow of P5 into a musou framework

silicon valley guys love to make threads like "let's talk about the baby-mulcher robot and why it's bad" and twenty-five posts later are always like "if you'd like to know more, be sure to follow us at MulcherAI, where we're making mulchtech more open and available to everyone."

FF7 is not my favorite Final Fantasy but they do got Graphics On The Playstation 5!!!!!!!

putting a trans flag outside a transphobic congressmember's office does nothing and only plays into the idea that this is battle of words and not real lives.

bigots only respond to power. do the dems have power or not.

in Greenwald's own statistics sheet, lesbian self-ID rose by 175% vs trans self-ID rising by 150% between generations. Can't imagine how he'd come away with this TERFy of a takeaway unless, you know, he was a fucking TERF

The Tron Legacy OST is still an all-time banger extravaganza but the remix album was just "what if all these were dance tracks" and had a truly incredible lineup of collaborators. Extremely fuckin sick album

Show thread

I think the first thing I heard of Daft Punk was probably Discovery, which is still my personal favorite album, but I remember listening to the Tron Legacy R3C0NF1GUR3D remix album just on repeat for HOURS. That one will always have a hold on me

Show thread

Daft Punk is probably the most *influential* band in my personal music listening history in the sense that they basically opened the door to all electronic music that I like, so it's bittersweet to hear that they're breaking up, but also, what an incredible legacy to leave behind

I think that Sabine Wren should- and deserves to- behead a guy with the darksaber

the biggest problem with Star Wars Rebels is that, unlike its forebear show Clone Wars, Rebels actually stays true to its TV-PG rating
