Pinned toot

Time for a proper !

Hi, I'm Phil. I'm 25, and live alone in the middle of nowhere in Poland (which in itself is a middle of nowhere).

I play a variety of games, though recently metroidvanias (Bloodstained hype) and platformers (CELESTE.) have dominated. Plus whatever comes out on Switch.

My timesink genres are fighting games (Guilty Gear) and Monster Hunter (my all-time favourite).

And I play FFXIV, so there's that.

Other than that, I like cycling. And wall climbing.

"If you had to recommend someone play 5 games to really get a feel for you/your tastes, what five would you pick?"

- Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
- Hollow Knight
- Guilty Gear Xrd -Rev2-
- Path of Exile

In case anybody was wondering

I was knocked out by a non-covid viral infection for two weeks

Protip: don't get sick, it's a bad idea

chess without queens, rooks, knights or bishops would be better than chess without pawns

(they would both suck. But the former would suck less.)

i've attended presentations at my company that start with "[company name] gets a shitload of excel spreadsheets emailed to it every day, and it has to process those correctly."

the three languages I speak (German, Polish, English) all use different animals to colloquially refer to police (respectively: bulls [Bullen], dogs [psy] and pigs [pigs]).

I wonder if there's a comprehensive list out there somewhere?

I settled on Little Witch Academia fwiw

was looking for something to watch on netflix and now I can't stop hating on algorithm slurry landing pages

"I really like (genre X) because it has (aspect Z) that I really enjoy--unlike (genre Y that in reality has aspect Z in spades)"

you wouldn't believe how often this structure of argument is made on a daily basis

black + pink is a really strong colour scheme

I went outside and met people, oops, also a bit of introspective wall of text so idk 

anyway, I went to a boardgames meet up. Was told there were gonna be three people + me, but I forgot that I live in the sticks so that translates to "three families + me"

we played in one of their houses, while their respective SOs had a party with the kids in the other house. Overall, quite patriarchal.

I haven't been in such a... normie situation for a long time, so I kinda just confusedly went along with it.

I guess nobody is worried about the whole waves hands at everything? But I'm probably gonna stay inside for two weeks now.

Anyway yeah, witnessing family interactions & stuff again after such a long time was pretty enlightening. Seeing the fathers take breaks to go do stuff with or for their kids was cute. The energy of multiple families kinda just sharing kids was neat.

And imagining myself in something like that made me realize that I fucking hate the idea of it. I don't miss it, and it doesn't feel like a defensive overreaction, either. I simply am a loner, or at least i feel like that's the best state of being for me given how I am (ie ND).

But it is nice to go, like. Just visit that world for a few hours every now and then. Remind me why people like it & why I don't.

Also they have a dog and a cat

might go again in the future

so that's the background to the toot just then

I don't want a family but being somebody's uncle-that's-not-an-uncle-but-just-dad's-friend-from-work seems pretty rad

fren started a watch2gether to make us watch Rat Movie as a joke

that was 4 and a half hours ago

we've done a big block of jerma wrestling, british vines and now we're on music memes

I'm probably going to sleep tho lol

Random thing I remember for no reason:

The name of a villain in the secret good ending route of PSP RPG Valkyrie Profile. I have never actually played that ending myself. I have never owned a PSP or the game myself.

it's not that video game guards have poor AI, they're just on minimum wage and really don't care about catching you

played a bit of Fight of Animals, which is like a kusoge fighting game where the characters are meme animals (like the big muscle dog, eggdog, etc)

it's actually fun. Like, still a kusoge, but after one session I already feel like i got my money's worth lol

sleep is when you download system updates
