    Whew, maybe it's finally time for a break.

    I've completed Iron Horse twice in the past week.

    Happy 21st, Digimon Adventure

    As much as I want to look forward to the Last Evolution film later this year that's supposed to wrap the entire Adventure series up, another part of me will never forget how the Tri films really didn't hold up all that well. Those six films presented way more questions than they answered.

    I'm Still Here

    Hello there, folks. Thought I'd give you guys a life update, since it's been about two weeks since my last.

    My writing has most certainly slowed, though I'm trying to get a little done each week.

    Most of my free time has once again been dominated by Division 2.

    I got OBS downloaded and set up. I've gotten pretty decent with speed running Lincoln Memorial on Heroic.

    Post-Finale Fandom Drama, Yay...

    Welp, if I've heard things correctly, the Derpibooru portion of the fandom is splintering.

    Here are my thoughts.

    Site owners and admins: If you're going to make rule changes, inform your moderators. If you don't, you're fucking idiots. Also, don't flip flop on those rules three times. If you do, you're fucking idiots.

    I Said I'd Never Do It, But Whatever

    I'm not sure what fire lit in me during the 28-hour crash and server transfer, but I've got some blazing creativity to finish up my current story, and immediately start work on a sequel.

Another Day of Downloading and Writing · 4:34am June 7th

Finally got my hair cut yesterday. It was by far the longest it had ever been before in my life thanks to this pandemic. But now, all shaved off, and my head is light again!

I figured it was finally time to get a picture up of my new pride and joy.

This is my first experience with water cooling. The CPU is almost always a full 10 degrees cooler than the GPU, and the temps fall far quicker when load is decreased. Color me impressed.

Due to the sheer size of the best-looking games in my library, I haven't been able to do a ton of testing yet. But what I have played has blown me away.

Division 2: Ultra settings, 3440x1440, solid 60 frames per second if servers are cooperative.
Star Wars Battlefront 2: Ultra settings, 3440x1440, solid 60 frames per second.

That's all so far. Looking forward to seeing how Jedi Fallen Order looks tomorrow; it's one of the more modern games that seriously made my previous CPU struggle. After that, probably Red Dead Redemption 2 (which I'll probably have to start over unless I find out how to put my save file onto a stick and move it over), No Man's Sky (seriously need to find out how to move a save, don't want to start over there), Witcher 3 and Resident Evil 2. I was already running Master Chief Collection fine no problem.

But no worries, I haven't been just sitting here staring at download progress bars. I've gotten some writing done every day, and hope to have an update for my faithful readers soon.

I wouldn’t have thought you’d be a No Man’s Sky fan. You’ve railed against products (and storefronts) unfinished on release.

True. The scale of No Man's Sky captivated me.

1.0 was barebones and clearly not ready, but you know, I wasn't really part of the outrage because something there did click. I played 60 hours before moving on. The Beyond update brought me back periodically.

And when it comes to developers redeeming themselves in the long run, Hello Games is always, always the first to come to mind. I haven't spent a dime since the initial $60 in 2016, and while there's still areas to improve, I don't think any other space flight / planet exploration sim has come close to what NMS has accomplished.

Please don't mention Star Citizen. Since that game's announcement, NMS has been announced, delayed, delayed, launched, and updated multiple times, and that fucking thing isn't even out of alpha and people are paying for it.

Wow, that was a mouthful. Cheers.
