Mental health 

Honestly my depressions and anxieties have bunched up and fed on each other so much I no longer know which created which.

What do you do when you realise not only do you hate your job, but you’re pretty sure you’d hate any job you could ever have?

The Last of Us and Part 2 are both good games, but my emotional involvement in most never rose above detached admiration. “This is actually pretty well written, this is.” And I admire 2 for an ambitious, clever structure. But it just never moved me.

Meanwhile, Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami 2 and Yakuza: Like a Dragon all reduced me to a sobby tearful wreck. The storytelling is so damn good.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon spoilers 

Holy SHIT. Like a Dragon created the most loathsome villain in Yakuza history, one I wanted dead more than any character in the franchise, and made me heartbroken when he died. Major credit to their writers, and to Kazuhiro Nakaya, who sells the hell out of the final scene. (As did the animation team.)

Spoiler, Yakuza: Like a Dragon 

I don’t think I’ve ever hated any videogame villain as much as Ryo Aoki.

The sexism in the Yakuza games and spin-offs actively hurts their storytelling and seven games deep into it, it’s pretty frustrating.

Let Saori lawyer, dammit

Mental health 

Today is a bad mental health day. Nothing bad has happened, it’s just all feeling bad.

Why does Disney place additional fees on specifically Asian focused content and only that?

Swearing 

That’s my secret, cap. I’m always fucking terrified.

There is now so much great stuff on my Disney+ that I profoundly do not want on my Disney+.

Honestly, I feel trapped. Playing games passes the time but my repeated failures make me miserable. Without them, I have nothing to do and I become miserable.

I got back into Mastodon, on which I am in a video games instance, right as I got out of video games. Hmm.

depression 

Today is going to be a day where I struggle not to see the entire world as a complete shithole
