Hi, everyone; I'm tarah, otherwise known as lobst. I've drawn a few comics that people have seemed to enjoy, and programmed a game demo that won 10th-place in a 140+ entry game jam despite having no sound. My ability to finish any individual project has been stymied by mental health problems for over a year, but I've been seeking treatment and making progress. I've also been streaming videogames on weekends. Watch this space!
Glad Doraemon Story of Seasons had the language added in on PC, at least; it seems like it's rare for anime games especially to allow you to play without English text
I'm an easy mark, if they want me to pay for a digital version of Shadow The Hedgehog (2005) I'll do it; they just have to make it available on modern hardware instead of leaving it where it is right now (in the garbage, where many say it belongs)
People over at Square-Enix are so dazed hearing Bonnie Tyler's "I Need A Hero" on endless repeat they've forgotten their audience needs 4 Heroes (of Light)
I like that JRPG announcements were dotted through the Square-Enix livestream like oases in a sprawling desert of third-person combat
That conference also did a surprisingly great job of making a few of its shooters look like I'd have fun playing them. I still fire up both Mirror's Edge games for fun; any game having fast-paced first-person movement is a major draw for me
None of this is meant to be negative against myself or the game, of course! I'll lose all day and night, I don't mind in the slightest; in the end I'm still pressing buttons while cool stuff happens onscreen (to me, usually)
I tried Mission Mode to start learning fundamentals; it was helpful in finding out that while at this point I can pull off basic quarter-circle/Z-inputs in my sleep, if my brain is focused on hit-confirming into those moves my hand instantly forgets how to do the motions
Someone out there watched that trailer and went "yeah! YEAH! God damn, finally!" at some of those later moments, I'm sure
