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!
Today I ran a dungeon (while catching up to my old alt's progress) and had partway through the dire realization of "oh no, I think I'm the most experienced player here" #FFXIVAsPlayedByLobst

"Just play Guilty Gear, if you start now you'll be ready when Strive comes out next year!" Sure, ~when I get to it~
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
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
(It turns out social media was cutting pretty severely into the time I would've used for other things, which is why I've been able to talk more openly about the stuff I like)
(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)
Hah, this did nothing it turns out. In the absence of some other solution coming up I'll probably just get a replacement controller later this year, mod it out of the box for responsiveness/long-term durability, and keep the old one around for replacement parts
Red Dead Redemption 1 endgame spoilers
When I was in the middle of playing RDR1 for the first time I had to look something up in a wiki and ended up spoiling myself on the mission names and characters. Out of context, it made the last few missions seem like they'd take place in a surrealist nightmare world separate from the main map, and like the 'family' John had been talking up through Mexico was a fictional construct that would eventually betray him completely in a cruel endgame twist
