Took a break from BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend's story mode to fully learn the rules of riichi mahjong (to the extent Yakuza Kiwami was willing to teach them, at least). I can't remember why I switched activities so suddenly but I'm glad I did regardless
(I am enjoying BlazBlue but probably wouldn't recommend this game's story mode to anyone who'd be turned off by a localization with bits and pieces that seem intended to appeal to callous anime fans)
BlazBlue Continuum Shift is over, now I've moved on to Chronophantasma which seems (at least at first glance) like a major upgrade. Already digging how the story's partitioned out, though I'll be spending more time in the other modes before committing to its VN portion
The best parts of CS's story for me were about human relationships; it wasn't a high bar, but Ragna/Jin/Jubei, Noel/Tsubaki/Makoto, Carl, and Lambda's gag reel were all standouts. Everything else (especially the overabundance of 'comedy' paths) felt unnecessary to me
"Just play Guilty Gear, if you start now you'll be ready when Strive comes out next year!" Sure, ~when I get to it~
@Lobst I can't remember where I first got interested in Mahjong, but there's a fair amount of pretty decent anime about it, in the form of "Akagi" and "legendary gambler tetsuya"
... though a lot of those two is more about, yknow, CHEATING at riichi mahjong
