    I understand all too well about distractions. I think the easiest thing to do is simply find the simplest and easiest thing you need to do and start there. Usually for me, I'll get on a roll of productivity if I start like that. Same with exercise. I also try to avoid certain websites nowadays that I know are pointless for me, or in cases like EoFF, I convince myself to only reply to interesting threads or comments and then check out for the day. Struggling with the last one, but I'm at least getting better about noticing when I linger on the forum despite a lack of activity.

    My blood pressure is fine, it was more a figure of speech. Though it does run in my family, so mine could be pretty high for my age and lifestyle.

    I might be able to relate to that, but I usually try to stay clear of things like that for the sake of my nerves and blood pressure. I'm sorry to hear you're frustrated.

    I'm doing okay, trying and losing a fight to stay on a schedule to be more productive. I keep piling on distractions. Have a minor vacation coming up, so I'm hoping a change of scenery and seeing some old college friends will improve my state of mind.

    How about you, other than the frustration part?

    Those types of videos help me out sometimes, but I'm usually so picky nowadays that I tend to be more selective. My issue comes from a gotta catch them all mentality so I'll find a new series I like and then proceed to pick up the whole franchise. Kind of the reason I haven't been jumping into Legend of Heroes or some other recommendations that come my way.

    I get that, and that's why I do regularly replay my older games. My issue is that I binged bought too many games in the past, and I'm having buyers remorse because I haven't even touched any of these games "I just had to have". For the most part, its why I'm trying my best to not buy anything new until I start chipping away at the pile first.

    I'd been meaning to for awhile. I've been having a blast but I feel I really should focus more on my unplayed games. I've beaten maybe half the games I actually own for the PS4 and haven't even started the other half. I just don't want a repeat of the PS3 where I kept picking up games for it, but never really got around to any of them. Bad habit I started last gen. My Steam list is the worst, which is why I don't bother with Steam sales anymore.

    I'm still not sure if I'm going to pick that one up. The new content looks interesting and P5 is a solid game, but I'm not in a hurry to play a director's cut version of a game I've already beaten when I still have a crap ton of other games I should be playing. I shouldn't even being playing P5 actually.

    Congrats, I'm just replaying Persona 5 for now.

    I see you're drooling over the next Ys game.

    I probably ill. I did something similar with Portal and I really enjoyed it as well, despite playing it long after it was relevant.

    I've played maybe twenty minutes of it, and put it aside because the hype was still a bit too strong for my taste. I have it one Steam, and need to get around to it, but it just hasn't been a priority for me at the moment as I have older games to play, and a general aversion to gaming on my PC.

Interesting Routes: Aqua

by Karifean on 11-30-2017 at 09:21 PM
There's something truly magical about Himawari that I didn't really realize back when I first read it but have come to appreciate about it more and more.


Himawari has an enforced reading order, something you don't see a lot in galge without a strong plot focus. However, like other visual novels such as Fate/Stay Night can use it to drive the plot and themes forward in parallel tales, so too does Himawari use it to give us ample

Well, at last, it happened. It's been a long time coming, Umineko Chiru is finally available for purchase on Steam, and alternatively MangaGamer's own website.

Dies Irae Review

by Karifean on 08-03-2017 at 12:32 AM
Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ is a visual novel created by Light. It was one of the most renowned JP-only VNs before finally getting a localization in June of this year.


Come, gather and bear witness to my opera, now in the making.

Its script is the height of cliché, I am forced to admit. And yet...

Its actors are of the finest fold; beyond exquisite.

Thus, I believe you will find it enthralling.

Umineko: Episode 4 Tea Party

by Karifean on 07-09-2017 at 08:57 PM
You talk too much. All you have to do is honestly say 'I'll kill you'.

For those that don't know, the climaxes of Episodes 4, 5 and 6 are my 3 favorite moments in Umineko (which also makes them my 3 favorite moments in fiction overall), all for their own individual reasons. I've been dying to talk about them for a while. I figured I'd start with the Episode 4 Tea Party, quite possibly the greatest example of Ryukishi's writing skill of them all.
