    We are doing okay. I'll give my thoughts on that towards the end, but I'll probably keep that part brief.

    Unfortunately, ran into a problem with Cave Story. I had the file downloaded, ready to open it up. Then I received a message saying "This is only compatible with Windows". I was dreading that message. I could try running it through Linux (basically lets chromebooks run window's applications). Linux can be a hassle, but it's worth a shot. I don't remember if I mentioned this, but I do have a bit of remembrance from Windwaker, despite playing it briefly. I think the first dungeon was forsakken fortress? I might be mixing this up with dragon quest. It was very unique, because I don't think Zelda delves into stealth very often. Aside from a few instances, like saving the carpenters in Ocarina of Time. (my least favorite part of that entire game). I couldn't navigate that section at all.

    I'm still stuck on ring man. I can make it to him now with all my lives, but he just destroys me. I think his weakness is the pharaoh shot, but I can hardly tell because it's not doing a significant amount of damage. I can usually get past the hippo's now. But I don't understand a reliable way to get past the eyes, besides luckily timing my shots and pressing autofire. Did auto fire exist in the original games, or was this added for legacy collection? I didn't even know Mega Man had a cartoon, but well, time to check it out. I never got into 90's cartoons despite hearing that was the golden era of cartoons. I remember what you mentioned about the praise for Final Fantasy 7 giving you reluctance to try it. For me it was the same with those cartoons. Stuff like "Only 90's children will remember this" just turns me away so much. And yes we were thinking of different bosses, and now I understand what you meant. I was stuck on that crash puzzle in Mega Man 2 for a week. Sadly when I think back on Mega Man 2 my only thoughts are about that puzzle. It was such a pain losing to a boss in that castle, and having to redo the entire stage. Since you said Mega Man 5 used to be your favorite, what is your current favorite? I could try to guess 7, since you said you were playing that recently. When I opened up 6 for a brief moment I saw Plant Man, which really amused me for some reason. I can't wait to try out that stage. Some are amusing, others make me think "Wait I just fought that didn't I"? For instance Fire Man and Heat Man.

    You played the 3DS version of Ocarina, right? I tried both and they definitely removed some of the tedium. They color coded the water levels (never payed attention to that myself, but it was there). And you could press a button to switch boots instead of pausing the game and navigating the menu. So you can actually get past dark link easily with the Din's Fire. He has nothing to block it. I never did a 3 heart challenge, simply because I like the feeling of progression and getting stronger, I feel like not collecting hearts removes the feeling. Ocarina of Time is the only Zelda game I can say I feel familiar with. I know a majority of hidden locations and heart pieces. I did finish Twilight Princess and got 100% on Majora's Mask, but I don't think my memory could get me through those games.

    Did you get around to progressing in Xenoblade? Recently I've been playing "Until Dawn" which a survival horror game. I always turn the lights off and only play late at night. It adds to the atmosphere. That and I don't scare easily, so anything to up the tension. Speaking of other RPG's, I wanted to play Persona 5, but just too many things I'm currently playing so I ignored the sale. I should have grown up with Gen 4, but I just completely ignored it. Gen 3 rom hacks had started to get big, and they were free, so I just stuck with that. The pace of Gen 4 does hit my limit of what I can tolerate, however it is resolvable with an emulator. I never liked turning off battle animations. I feel like I'm missing part of the experience. I should mention that Dragon Quest 5 is similar to Pokemon. The battle system has a monster taming feature, so you can defeat enemies and recruit them. It was sort of a predecessor to Pokemon. But an interesting fact about the massive grind I mentioned in Dragon Quest 2. Even the developers never finished the original NES release. (although it is very possible to beat). They toned it down drastically in the remasters.

    Oh you never mentioned New York. I've never even been myself. I've traveled all around the Eastern U.S, even New Jersey. Never been into New York. So we had a trip in highschool that involved us spending the night in a college dormitory. I passed on it, and I have no regrets what so ever. It's really cool knowing your school did trips outside of your country, ours certainly did not. Not that I can recall anyways. My class presentation did accidentally cause a fight between two students. We had to do a project about drug use, and I admit I was pretty apathetic. So I drew a stoned mickey mouse with the message "drugs=bad" and shared it with the class. One kid decides to insult another, saying Mickey Mouse looked like him. He took offense and rolled up his can guess what happened from there. (teacher gave me an A+ because of "presentation interruption"). On another note, opps. I meant to say I don't think it's a big deal. I wasn't even aware asexuality was a thing until a couple years ago. It was more like "Oh, that's why I'm this way". Then life just carried on. This is the only forum I use anymore, and I don't think I've ever been badmouthed here. Even online, I'm just not confrontational so I would probably not respond if it happened. I admit, having anxiety I'm often afraid I'll check my messages and find a mean comment. I'm glad to mention you only received a comment once within 5 years, it must make things easier. Oh, I met my best friend in freshman year over a 2k app card game. We would spend entire lunch periods everyday playing it together. (I even shared the canoe with him on that field trip, all because we bonded over a card game). Idol games are those things you leave open in the background and that's how you progress? or am I thinking of the wrong thing? It sounds so familiar. Like...cookie clicker I think?

    So I did start watching love live. Um am I supposed to watch season 1 first or is it okay to just start season 2? Honestly this is completely new to me. I have watched no style of this show ever aside from Pokemon. But it is cute, and the characters feel so full of expression and full of life. On that note it's a bit funny looking down at subtitles, I would rather see the expressions. But from what I understood, they were welcoming to people to the school. The one girl became president of the school (I think they said her name was honaka) Her friends are passionate about the talent show, but she doesn't want to participate. (Until the end, they were singing and she changed her mind). Also what's A-rise, a rival group? They keep bringing it up. I'm guessing this show will revolve around the talent show. Ohhh thanks for the link. It made me smile because the tone of the instrumentals reminded me of black sabboth.

    But yeah it's okay. I think there's a lot of tension in the air. He has 12 days left as leader, and hopefully he doesn't do anything crazy during this time or incite more violence. He promised peace from now on, and I hope those words are true. Right now his mental stability is being questioned, so there is a possibility he could be out before the 12 days. Honestly, I really just don't want any more riots and violence. Oh. I'm studying Psychology right now. It's interesting. In particular, I would like to get into a field in which I could help others. This has been my biggest struggle throughout college. I suddenly think "I don't feel passionate about this anymore" and I want to change my field of study. I'm sure it'll work out for you, and it's okay not to know at the moment. There's many who feel the same way as you.

    Sorry that this response is coming immediately, hopefully you don't mind it. Not in the mood for browsing social media tonight. Our country really isn't doing well right now (U.S capital was just invaded by those who aren't accepting the election). So I'm just hanging out on pokecommunity instead. I live about an hour away from where this is all happening.

    Yep it's a translation patch. I'm not sure what causes overheating. I should share my desktop because it's rather humorous. It's literally an empty screen. I remember how long I've had this computer, but I never download anything. So yeah if I can't get this to work out I'm thinking about making the purchase on 3DS. Oh, here's an interesting fact about myself I could share. My first memories of playing video games are Grandia on the Dreamcast. I must have been about 5 years old. I would sit with my older brother and he would pass me the controller on certain parts. That's sort of the reason I haven't played grandia again. The way I remember it is magical. I sort of don't want to go back and see a blocky mess.

    No I think you were right, because I had completely depleted my skull power when I beat him. If I have extra lives when I reach a boss stage, I usually try to see how I do with the mega buster first. (Is it called Mega Buster? I keep calling it pellet shooter). Some of these boss weaknesses would certainly interest me. Like...I don't understand how dive man is weak to skulls. I guess because there's skulls underwater? That probably makes no sense but now I want to look this stuff up online. Just wondering, but what did you find wrong with the crash bomber boss? He gave me a bit of trouble until I figured out he was weak to air, then it was a breeze. (no pun intended). Our viewing of difficulty is probably different, because I feel like the boss power-ups don't help me much on a stage. It's usually not the enemies giving me trouble, but the platforming sections. Sometimes mega man likes to place enemies in a place that if you rush a jump they push you right into a gap. I'm surprised you consider four the hardest. How does 5 compare? Somewhat would like to know what to expect in terms of difficulty.

    It's nice to see someone who isn't bashing the water temple. I don't think I had a problem with getting lost, but it was finding certain keys. The layout felt simple. The lobby room with the water is the first half of the dungeon, the rest of the dungeon is the second half. That's how I interpreted it. Once you get past that first section, I find the second half is no issue. Also I loved the dark link fight. It's my favorite part of Ocarina of Time. (Besides tennis with ganondorf). This is making me want to play ocarina of time again.

    Fortnite is a completely free game, so I think it's the exception. You get a huge amount of new players checking it out, and experienced players. Of course all it takes is one veteran to dominate a lobby, but I see all sorts of people who seem to be doing just as poor as me. (Struggling to build a ramp, shooting all around my character). It might just be my playstyle though that allows me into the top 10 so often. I avoid confrontation with other players and farm materials in isolated areas of the map. Yeah that's true but there's certain games I really do want to see the end of. Especially the ones with really good stories. Pokemon is one of the things I get the craving to play, but then I go a few months without any urge to play. Which generation did you grow up with? When I was a small child I played Gen 3, but I didn't truly get back into the series until High School when Gen 6 released. But yeah super excited to play dragon quest 8 now. At the same time I'm probably going to end up putting 80 hours in Dragon Quest 11. Also Dragon Quest 3 is on switch, but I honestly prefer the NES graphics over the remastered art-style. Also craving to play Dragon Quest 2, but that game is a massive grind.

    My school was the same way, not huge on clubs. We did lots of field trips though (Canoeing, museums, going on a cruise ship, etc). It's good to know your school had that sort of club called the GSA. Our generation seems to me more accepting and I'm quite proud to see it. I guess it's too big of a deal to mention this, but I myself am asexual. Oh...about to sound really dumb, but what is a gacha game? If Pokemon GO counts as a nintendo mobile game I played that for a very slight time with my sister, 3 years late after the hype died down. I remember that game reaching insane levels of popularity, and it was cool because apparently this was how popular pokemon was when it was released in 1998. I wasn't born yet but I was curious to know what the craze was like. I guess the pokemon go era was close.

    Um, what is the show called? Sorry, it's all in Japanese and I can't read it. The animation from the clip you shared is pretty. It would definitely be different from what I usually watch. Usually I like gritty, slow suspenseful shows (Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul). But I still enjoy trying completely new things, so watching this could be a fun time. To be honest can't say I know anything about J-pop either. Hilariously what I have playing in another tab sounds like the opposite of j-pop. ( If there's 10 characters and they each have an episode, does that mean this show is only 10 episodes?

    Yeah unfortunately that's just american culture. Certain people make a big deal about "not being a sheep" so they don't want to wear masks and would rather spread this virus everywhere. And it's okay, it's been a nice way to pass time so i actually don't mind writing lengthy messages to be quite honest. But no I don't think you mentioned that about college, and I don't blame you. Do you know what you want to study? If it's okay to ask. I'm really starting to miss being on campus. Even stuff as small as buying ice cream after class.

    Ok so I have cave story downloading...I have no idea if this is going to work because it says specifically this is for windows, and I'm on a chromebook. Also it mentions having to patch the game. I can probably figure this out, but I admit I don't have the slightest idea what I'm actually doing. I play almost everything on my phone, and there's an app to patch things. I guess I have to download a patcher or something. It might be easier if I just spent the $10 on 3DS to be honest. About computers, you mentioned it being primarily what you play games on. Does that mean you also lose portability? I've seen gaming computers and it's always a desktop PC instead of a laptop. Being on the cavestory downloading page, I'm impressed with how they have this for DreamCast and GameCube. You would probably need to modify your consoles, but it's interesting nonetheless. And thanks for mentioning, I don't think I'll be missing too much by losing those modes. The controls might be easier since I'm going to be stuck with a touchpad and keyboard.

    So I did beat Dive Man. That felt like one of the toughest bosses so far in the series. He moved like Heat Man but with the speed of Quick Man. I'd say the hardest bosses for me have been Wood Man (could not get the timing) Air Man, and Needle Man. Dive Man was weak to the skull barrier, which actually made things more difficult because it meant getting into close range to have a chance at hitting him. Wily is always a problem, and I had to exploit the glitch to beat him in Mega Man 1. That's not a bad thing though. It's cool to have an intimidating final boss. When I reach him there's a mix of excitement, and dread because I know he's going to pose a huge challenge. I'm hoping for some more backstory with Wily because he's an interesting villian. Right now all I know is that he likes to build evil robots and he's like the counterpart to Dr. Light. I actually missed the balloon...I don't know if it's worth getting because I haven't even used the Wire yet. In terms of difficulty, this has been the odd ball of the series. Mega Man 1 was the hardest and I couldn't do it without exploiting the pause glitch. Two was the easiest, Three was about the same as one, but had the easiest Wily Castle. Four seems to fluctuate. Sometimes it's easier than Mega Man 2, sometimes it's harder than Mega Man 1. I tried to beat Ring Man today, but still haven't done it. I actually had a really good run going. I had full health near the checkpoint, then got killed by the spikes and lost everything. Speaking of Water stages, I'm in the group who doesn't mind them. It's desert stages i'm not good at. As I mentioned I liked the Lakebed Temple, and I don't mind the Water Temple either. I think it's peaceful and tranquil.

    When it comes to games like Leauge and Fortnite, one of the hardest things is you have to catch up with people who have years of experience. With Smash Brothers I think the skill ceiling is slightly lower. In about a year my win ratio online went from 20% to 60%, now it's 80-90% with my better characters. My backlog has turned more into a huge clustered mess because I keep starting things. Right now I'm playing Stranded Deep, Mega Man 4, Detroit Become Human (for the better ending), Last of Us II, Dragon Quest 11, about to start Cave Story, Skyrim (Never finished, on hiatus) New Vegas (On partial hiatus, like once every two weeks). Life Is Strange II, Bioshock I (On hiatus), Xenoblade (On hiatus). and I want to try God of War and Metal Gear Solid 4. I probably won't finish most of these. Oh and I just saw Dragon Quest 8 in the 3DS shop. I was going to save the rest of my gift-card, but nope out goes that idea. I haven't even played 8. I'm not sure if this word is a good description, but I do kind of fanboy over dragon quest. More like adoration. They've always just generally made me very happy. Did you attend any clubs in school? I admit the club I played Smash Brothers in was the only one. We also played Mario Kart 8 sometimes, but unlike smash brothers, I was not dominate and usually placed towards the bottom of every race. And I did watch the video of ritcher, I find that so cool. Had an odd dream that they added all a bunch of castlevania games to the switch. Is Ritcher your favorite protagonist from the series? I haven't played them, but I do like the design of Simon, and the fact that he's the one who started the series...i think.

    Funnily enough, I don't think I've ever taken the switch out. When I wanted to play with someone from school, we could just use online and play together that way. Most of the time if my family is leaving for a trip, I would rather just play games on my phone. Since emulation has gotten advanced, you can do way more things with phones. It also helps that console games are now becoming a normal thing to receive phone ports. The Grand Theft Auto series has slowly been getting ported to phone, and so has Final Fantasy. I wonder if the 3DS will be getting a successor or if Nintendo is solely focusing on the switch from now on. They've also made an attempt at the mobile market, with Mario Kart Tour and Super Mario Run. I didn't play Super Mario Run because I thought $10 was a bit much for a phone app.

    So I read the comment section on the last video you sent, and lots of people were talking about Ayumu. But that is very heartwarming. Does she develop that kind of confidence through the rest of the show, or is it more of an episode specific thing? Also the characters are adorable. The youtube name of the guy you uploaded the clip from made me chuckle. I'm guessing this is like a highschool specific show, or something more grandiose? Maybe I'll end up checking it out someday.

    I think the world just needs more unity. Unfortunately this is a global issue turned into a blame issue. I guess I could explain a bit of what it's like down here, but I can't speak for the entirety of the U.S, just my state. Masks are pretty much required in all buildings. Schools are closed across the state. They tried to reopen but the virus forced everything back into closure. In certain places, they have a person stand outside and check your temperature. Like I was going to talk with my doctor about my anxiety, and there was a person who makes sure your safe to enter. Some people in the U.S are "rebelling". They have large parties without masks, and have made life worse for the rest of us. I've only had one family member test positive for covid, but he made a recovery. I'd say the way that I've been impacted was that I now have to do all my classes through zoom meetings. Also anything involving leisure or entertainment is completely gone. (No movie theaters, theme parks, etc). We dined out a couple times, but we have to do it outside, and everything is constantly being sanitized. (the menu's, plates, etc). The fun of it ends up going away and you realize it's actually pretty sad.

    I hope the year goes better than 2018 for you then. Actually my message got cut off and I had to rewrite a portion of this. I was like do I want to do it now or later....meh i'll do it now. Sometimes pokecommunity logs you out after a certain amount of time.

    Hey so I was thinking about downloading cave story, but is the difference between the old and new one massive? You mentioned it came out in 2004, so I'm just wondering how much is actually different. (Like if the controls are going to be shaky, etc). I might just try it for an hour or so to get a feel for it. (Also if it's not too much to ask, is there a general idea of the plot)?

    Well I made a little bit of progress. I beat Skull Man. I don't know if his weakness was actually dust man, but it worked. Since you mentioned Dive Man being difficult, I haven't even tried it yet. Ring Man is still a pain and I can only get half way through the stage. I miss the jet, that would trivialize this entire stage. The music is so sick, and I'm actually listening to it right now on another tab. It's probably my new favorite theme from this series, in contention with snake man. So I also started blocking the rocks with the skull barrier, and I almost made it to the end of the stage. After I finish writing this, I might go and play a bit more tonight. The grasshopers didn't bother me much and I actually found that part easy. It was the moving platforms that got me, and I lost on that part over and over. I feel like I put off all the tough stages for last, so now I just have to get through them. I'll probably go for Dive Man. Playing this 100% blind has been so much fun. I've been getting some insane luck, many times guessing the weakness on my first try. But wow ring man has such a tough stage. I have no idea what those strange enemies are, they look like hippo's and stand on a podium. I've been using the toadman power to rain them, but it only gives me enough to kill one.

    League was like one of the most popular games on twitch. When I read that games usually last an hour, I lost interest. (Yet I also like chess). Then I heard unpleasant things about the fanbase, and my interest went down even more. I can't really say I understand why your friends would tell you which characters you aren't allowed to play. Did they struggle against certain characters, and that's why they didn't want you playing? You know, after hearing you say that, I now realize what an amazing group I was playing smash brothers with, because I won and dominated almost 100% of our matches. They didn't kick me out or anything. They actually praised me and greatly enjoyed seeing if they could take me out. Sometimes my teacher would stop me in the hall and say things like "There's the smash brothers champion". We played at lunch and during an after school club. Eventually I didn't want to attend the club anymore, but sometimes I think back on it and miss the group. Have you tried Skyrim yet by the way, or is it in your backlog? It really is a time-sink.

    They have tournaments that are in-between local and major. Maybe that was it. Usually state tournaments and they get around a few hundred viewers. Most of the time a professional player will appear and it's a big way to make people want to attend. That sounds so cool what you mentioned about Ritcher, and soon I'm going to look up the fight on youtube. Does he fight like he does when he's a protagonist in his own game, or does he use new moves? To be honest now I want to read the wiki pages. It's always neat how every single franchise has it's own wiki. Whenever I finish a game, I always like to find the fandom wiki. Especially because they have trivia sections at the bottom with fun information. So...Alucard is an antagonist? If I play any of these games I want to play Symphony of the Night. So it would make fighting him in the other games so much cooler.

    I keep forgetting the 3DS version exists. If I'm not mistaken it's only for New 3DS? I only have a 2DS. I guess no reason to play it, unless for some reason I wanted to see the old graphic style. I still think it could be kind of neat. So if there's one thing I never did, it was filling the map. I did enjoy stumbling into the secret areas, and most of the time if you did the side quests it would set you up to find the secret areas. You usually gained a nice amount of experience from doing so. I'm sort of glad I waited all these years to play the definitive edition. It exceeded my expectations, and I wasn't even sure if I was going to enjoy the game. As much as I've talked about this game, I only played it in June 2020. So about 6 months ago, I bought it with my birthday money. I loved it so much, that I did the entire thing in a couple weeks. Draw Distance is the one thing that does bother me. It's hard to feel immersed when the game is loading everything in front of your face. But PS4 was actually the graphically better version of Dragon Quest 11. I guess because it's a stronger system. It's not a massive difference. Plus I like the portability. I can take it to my room and play before bed. (so much for what I said about unplugging before bed). The switch battery dies really quickly, so that can be problematic. I usually don't play that long anyways. Do you have a regular switch or the switch lite? I know there's a battery improvement.

    Aw, thanks for the clip. I had to watch it twice but I understand the context of it. She seems excited to talk about anime since she isn't able to talk about it around her parents. Didn't really understand that ending about her identity, but I guess that's because it's leading into another conversation. I can see how you find it relatable. Did you like any other characters from the show or was she your absolute favorite?

    Yeah for sure the water park was a nice place. I'm glad we did the trip before covid hit. It's really bad here in the U.S, so it was sort of the last memory before all this started. As a random question, do you tend to look at the new year with eager anticipation or dread? I'll admit it's always anxiety inducing for me. I can't help but to look at it as a big picture, and I wonder how much is going to change by the end of the year. Sometimes I wish life had just a little bit more predictability.

    Editing my message after playing mega man 4 for a bit: Uh okay I found a wire in dive-mans stage and it played cheery music. I guess I did something right. Then it took me back to the start of the stage. I have no idea what this item does, but I stumbled on it by accident.

    I made a bit of progress, but Drill Man's stage was starting feel irritating. I don't understand how to get past those falling rocks. They take large chunks of damage, and fall too quickly to run past. I used two energy tanks and that part still killed me. I quit the stage because maybe I need a power up or something? So I did bright man which also felt ridiculously hard towards the end. However at least I completed that one. Then pharaoh man was easy. I only got killed once in that stage. I saw the spikes which have become the most stressful part of playing these games, and thought "Oh no". But...that was it. They weren't tough to get past, and the stage felt so short. I saw the desert stage and for some reason just expected the toughest stage ever. Thanks for sharing, that was pretty interesting. I liked how towards the end it flashed the previous robots Mega Man had beaten (Woodman, Airman, Quickman). To me these games are very cutesy, but that actually put things into another perspective. I wonder if the robots feel anything about being beaten by megaman, or even being forced into reconstruction for those rematches in the castle. Speaking of the legacy collection, I do like these little challenges. I keep trying to beat the yellow devil in Mega Man 1 without the glitch whenever I load the game.

    To be fair, our switch is in a different room from the Playstation 4 and Xbox. It's a 3 story house, sometimes I do move stuff around when I want to hang out in a different room. Usually I'd rather just hang out on the bottom floor so that's where I put the consoles. My older siblings visit during christmas and like to play the systems, so I put it in a place convenient for them when they come over. But yeah really not a big fan of the stigma. Feels like one group just wanting to express superiority over another, and nobody should be shamed for just wanting to have fun.

    What is considered a hardcore game? I'm not entirely sure if I'm correct, but I think of mainstream titles such as League of Legends or Dota (The stuff that's always trending on twitch's homepage). I guess as far as these mainstream titles go, I played Fortnite occasionally. I'm not good at it, and usually stealth around way too passively. Oh, what system did you buy Skyrim for? I feel like on Switch is was overpriced (Still $60 where it's dropped to like $30-$40 everywhere else). I guess the portability is nice, but just not worth it. I haven't played many games on phone recently, but I liked Fairune quite a bit. Oh I did get my brother Skyrim for Christmas last year. He hadn't played it either. When he left it helped us keep in touch, because we could both play and text each other about our experiences. Sadly, we both seem to have lost interest at the same time. This year I bought him Dragon Quest 11.

    That's interesting, especially how you mentioned she was a commentator. Was she more of a local commentator or was she more of a known person who traveled? Not sure how I would handle having a large following online. Honestly it just sounds stressful. I could probably hold my own in tournaments, but I'm just not into them. I think I did one tournament which was hosted online, and I placed second. It was a humorous award. The guy hosting wasn't offering money, but instead offering a moderator position in his twitch chat. I would rather have the money, but that day nothing was going on and I thought maybe it could be fun. I ended up doing way better than I thought. Especially because my favorite character is considered one of the worst. I like how you mentioned you could fight Richard's ghost. That sound so neat and I'm a big fan of games doing stuff like meeting other protagonists. I always hear the name Alucard when I hear castlevania. For some reason I thought that was another name for Dracula. Isn't it the same dracula through the series or is it his grandchildren again?

    Yep I agree, it really does make the game feel slow. I did the same thing with picking up every single quest. My reasoning is because I wasn't that good at combat and wanted to be well off in levels. But that's one issue I have with Xenoblade. The quests aren't very interesting and I just end up speeding through the dialogue. There were a couple I found okay, such as Earnest Fib's on Bionis Leg. Eyreth sea felt like a chore to navigate with all the quests. (Swimming is not fast in Xenoblade). I couldn't beat the lightspeed sonid challenge even above level, and I just felt bad at the game. I mean I don't think Alcamoth quests go away until near the end, however if you put quests off they start to pile up and then you just have more and more to do. I'm not usually pick about this stuff, but Sword and Shield had a couple issues which actually began to bother me. Indoor battles had no backgrounds and the draw distance was poor, so stuff kept popping up on screen. Other than that it's still pokemon and it's still fun. But it felt like when I play a phone game, and have to turn off a bunch of settings because my phone can't handle it. Interestingly, the PS4 version of Dragon Quest 11 did not have these quality of life features. It was the first one I played, and now I'm playing the Switch version which is the definitive edition. It makes me enjoy these features even more.

    I remember being in elementary school during the release of Heartgold/SoulSilver. People would take the pokewalker's to recess. I wasn't super into pokemon at the time, but I thought it was cool.

    My experience was slightly backwards. When I listened to her talk in the first few minutes of playing, I realized quickly she had the same speaking mannerisms as me. (Especially because occasionally my voice quivers mid-sentence). In a strange way it made me self-conscious, and I started not wanting to speak like that anymore. It became especially funny when I would think things in my head, and it would later be in her dialogue options. Since you mention Setsuna, how long did it take before you felt attached with the character? And there's nothing wrong with making a theme. I picked Whismicott as my avatar on here because I like how vibrant and sunshiny it looks. And yeah what you mentioned about moderating would probably the same issue for me. I am not assertive and I usually don't like confrontation.

    Congratulations on graduation! (And being able to focus on things your passionate about). both are nice. As for my answer, it was probably the trip I went on with my family before covid started. We spent the weekend at a water park resort. I had lots of fun.

    I actually got excited so I already started Mega Man 4. Here's what's happened so far. I couldn't get past Ring Man's stage so I just gave that up for a while. One of those instances where I felt like I made it far and was thinking "Wait I didn't even reach the checkpoint"? I completed Toad Man in the most laughable fight. He killed me a couple times, then I realized you could hit him and he never gets to use his power. So it was just him hopping in circles doing nothing. I beat Dustman and this is the point when I realized wow these stages are getting really impressive. So much has improved since Mega Man 1. It was like a graveyard for robots, you could see the eyes on the flooring, and the robot scrap being crushed. The music also fit the theme. This seems like such a memorable stage. The boss was really easy. His power was easy to simply jump over. That or i'm improving. I reached Skull Man on my last life and got obliterated. Oh and I did see the cut-scene. I noticed and thought "Wow this is showing backstory". It was very cool. How I knew about the console change. To be fair when I got the legacy collection, 7 was the first game I clicked. (No particular reason, I was just happy to see all the games and clicked it randomly). I saw the graphics and that was not NES. Then I also read that 1-6 is the classic series. So I assumed they must have taken a break and switched to PlayStation 1 or something. Since I'm pretty sure mega man isn't a nintendo thing anymore.

    Nope it's not too bad. Switching consoles is simply swapping a plug for me. And it's just the HDMI cord which displays it on the TV. Ehhh controllers can be iffy. I admit I've had my mix-ups. Especially with something like Detroit Become Human, which wants you to press the right buttons quickly. To be honest I've never liked the stigma. There are people who enjoy phone games and there's nothing wrong with that. "Casual or Hardcore", in the end I've never understood the big deal. I'd probably fall in the middle. I don't keep up with too many new releases, I don't have a gaming PC or even use steam. However I'm still familiar with all sorts of games and have tried out many different franchises. My only problem with mobile games is that they go insane with pushing micro-transactions.

    Huh. It's been around before the original NES game? Wouldn't that make castlevania an arcade game or atari game? Trying to think of stuff that existed before NES. Speaking of smash brothers, time to admit I am pretty familiar with how it works. (Still I don't mind you sharing the story). My switch time has logged over 1,000+ hours for it. Even though almost all of that are just 1v1 matches online. I haven't played it in a couple months, but for a while it was the only thing I used the switch for. Plus it become the main thing helping my anxiety. It requires so much focus it can completely remove whatever I'm feeling. Even though I haven't been an active player, but I still buy all the DLC characters when they periodically release. Oh I wasn't aware at all it did the same as link with the descents. That makes me wonder why they picked Simon and Ritcher. So...these are different characters or just Simon and Ritcher being reincarnated? I'm assuming from later in your post about Juste Belmont they don't get reincarnated. But out of curiosity can you still talk to the old characters? Like are they spirits, or do they leave little notes behind? Oh and thanks, will look at Cave Story original. If I like it then I could just go back and get it for 3DS.

    I understand exactly what you meant by that, because when I started a second file it felt so empty. I just wanted the party back, especially Melia. So I ended up rushing into that part, playing as quickly as possible to regroup everybody. (Besides 7, never got attached with that character). And I had the same burnout with the combat system. Especially because I tried to do every single side-quest available. Xenoblade is also such a plot heavy game, I think it does hinder replay value slightly when you know the twists. At the same time lots of things seem to have double meaning, that you would only understand on a second playthrough. For example Shulk having the flash backs when he has the Monado for the first time. That would be confusing on a first run, but you would understand it in context for the second.

    For Dragon Quest, anything probably works. 11 is probably the most friendly, while the older games (especially one and two) can require hours of grinding. But the series stays the same. Once your familiar with one your pretty much familiar with them all. There was a really lengthy demo on the switch for Dragon Quest 11. It can take between 8-10 hours. Then you can transfer your progress into the main game if you buy it fully. Also it has speed options, so if you find the fighting repetitive there's an ultra speed option. And in 11 the enemies appear on the overworld, letting you pick and choose how many you want to fight. Which isn't a problem as long as you aren't skipping everything. There's an analogy for Dragon Quest which I really liked. It's basically like fast food. It's simplistic and fun, but you can't expect anything too overly grandiose.

    I ended up fortunate in highschool, and found a group to play Smash on 3DS with at lunch every day. Of course there was occasionally a kid who would come over and poke fun at us for playing these systems. I quickly learned that they probably felt insecure and wanted to validate themselves. It didn't bother me anymore when I realized that. Being passionate about things is good. I'm not sure what Love Live is, (google search makes me guess an anime) but 4,000 words is quite amazing. When I write essay's I struggle at going above 800 words. But no it's fine. I've dealt with the same problem about feeling annoying. As for relatable characters, for me it's probably max from "life is strange". That's not really...a good thing. Because I even have the exact same negative traits. I'm observant to such a degree it can annoy the other person. (Like I noticed my mother had her facebook chat window open and saw she was fighting with her friend). (overheard a surprise vacation my family was planning because I was quietly in another room). I'm bad at staying in touch with people. Even some of my speaking mannerisms are the same as the character. I deal with anxiety the same way, I have the same opinions about social outings, etc.

    And yep she's the owner. Which is also what I enjoy about this website. Staff actually treats the position as such it should be handled, which is staffing where and when it's needed. Otherwise they just hang out as normal members of the community.

    Hopefully it'll be a good year. 2020 was certainly eventful. What was your favorite thing that happened in the year? If you don't mind me asking

    So I just finished Mega Man 3. Wily's Castle was actually the easiest so far for me. It took under two hours. The hardest part was probably Yellow Devil and the Boss Rush. But Yellow Devil wasn't nearly as insane this time. I was actually able to nail his patterns pretty quickly. He felt so much slower than he was in Mega Man 1. I do wonder if this is his last appearance, or if he's going to remain a staple in the series. The boss rush was...tough. They felt much more threatening than the bosses in the previous games. At the same time this game felt much nicer. So many energy tanks littered all over the place. They give you two before the Yellow Devil. As I mentioned, I have no idea about anything past Mega Man 3. I'm excited to find out. I think starting with Mega Man 4 I'm going to be much less reliant on the internet, instead i'm going to try scouting out the boss weaknesses on my own. Unless I feel like I can't continue. Being able to save anywhere on Legacy Collection is such a nice feature. It completely negates the need for passwords. Oh, and wasn't 7 the end of the NES era? Curious to what it was released on, and how different it will be.

    I'm playing New Vegas on Xbox 360. Okay so to clear things up, I would say the main console I play things on is Playstation 4. It's what I'm using to play Mega Man. But I impulsively bought New Vegas on Xbox...and was thinking wait that wasn't my brightest idea. Now it means constantly shuffling back and fourth between consoles, when I could have just purchased it on Playstation. I've never played much on PC. I think I only own 2 steam games. I prefer the simplicity or just playing on console. It's just what I've been accustomed with my entire life. I did play lots of flash games though. Speaking of flash, I think today is the end of it.

    I wasn't even aware Castlevania had so many titles. I'll check out the Playstation 4 shop and see if they have anything. I'm sure they have a few. The first thing I found when I searched up Castlevania was an animated show, so that's pretty cool. I actually I might just end up watching that. If I like it, I would probably want to try one of the games. It's only 3 seasons so it doesn't seem like it would be tough to get through. Hopefully it's not one of those things that would be confusing if you didn't play the games. My knowledge on the series is pretty much non-existent. I know the protagonists are Simon and Ritcher (because of smash ultimate) And they throw axes. I think ritcher is the son of simon. When it comes to video games, I really enjoy trying new franchises. I would say that I'm less into speedruns but I love watching reviews. I usually don't watch reviews to decide a purchase, but I watch them after I play and have my own opinions. I like seeing someone else's perspective. Unless it's something I really enjoyed, and the majority of reviews are bashing it. Then I'm a bit hesitant to listen because it might seep into my mind when if I ever want to replay. Fallout 3 is a good example. It was a very divided entry, since the story was mostly linear and it didn't matter if you had picked to be good or evil.

    I'll look into on 3DS. I admit that I'm stingy with purchases. I usually won't buy things unless I'm certain I can get enjoyment. But $10 doesn't seem bad. For example Final Fantasy 10. I did not actually enjoy that game, but purchased it on switch for $50. Not making that mistake again. I mean it wasn't terrible, but I just didn't connect with the story. That's usually my biggest problem with Final Fantasy. If it's free on PC that could work, but it would probably depend on my computer. I don't know if it's a heavy game to run.

    Oh wow you hit Prison Island already? I mean actually that doesn't seem too surprising. I just remembered I got really into it and finished the entire game in under two weeks. I'm glad your enjoying it. You even played the original, so it must be so nice looking at the new updated graphics. I loved how it looked and I didn't even have anything to compare it with. I think that was my initial disappointment with Final Fantasy 10. It was a remaster, but looked significantly worse than Xenoblade which I had just finished. Are you going to play Future Connected? I think I'll even start that soon. You even finished Eryth Sea which you mentioned was your favorite part. I thought that place looked really nice.

    But yeah I adore Dragon Quest. It's my favorite JRPG series. It's very formulaic, like possibly on the level of Pokemon. But unlike Pokemon it's completely self aware about this and never gets too serious. Your almost always a chosen one. You have to stop some generic bad guy. The combat is a very simplistic turn based system. (You get attacks and spells). But the games are so vibrant and colorful, and so lighthearted. I love every bit of it. Also the plots still remain engaging enough that they are interesting. It's good enough to have depth, but it never goes over the top.

    Inadvertently, anxiety is probably the reason I avoided being made fun of. I never opened up with people, nor even shared my interests. I had friends, but kept myself distant. Meaning it was almost always strictly a friendship for school. I almost never texted or wanted to hang out. Basically I separated school life and family. At one point there was a friend I did enjoy the company of, and I invited him over to play video games. It was so bizarre having someone from school in my house. I had kept it so separate. I understand and relate to what you mentioned. I would get passionate about certain things, but unless I felt the person might be receptive I would never bring it up. If it means anything I haven't minded listening to you talk about such things (Like metroidvania games). In fact it's interesting.

    It's nice hearing you found a character you can relate so much with, and I think those are the characters it's easiest to get attached with. I have a couple characters in mind I've felt the same way about.

    It was a good experience and I'm glad I had the opportunity. There are some really good people on the staff team here on pokecommunity. At one point after I left the social media team, sheep (the owner) asked if I was interested in submitting a mod application. Honestly I had no interest. I'd rather use this place for leisure, and I really don't want to carry the responsibility of moderating. I'm perfectly happy with just being a normal user. Your frustrations are understandable. I probably wouldn't want to moderate after that either.

    I'm not quite legal drinking age yet. It's 21 to do that stuff in our country. And ah thank you for the message about my dad. I do appreciate it and I'm sure he would too. I'm sorry, I was being very unclear. I mentioned his birthday in past tense, since I wasn't sure about bluntly saying it. But he's passed away. I don't mind it being bought up though, since if parents come up in future conversation you know why I only ever mention my mother.

    I thought about it and yeah it makes sense with how a birthday would easily get meshed in the holidays. I think it would be cool to have a birthday on January 1st. But it also is the last day of the year, and it's a bit early in my time zone, but happy new year! Hopefully it's a good one for you.

    I loaded Mega Man 3 again last night, and found out it didn't save so I had to do another doc stage again. you hate to see it. It might not sound too bad, but I've been stuck on these for so long. Anyways it didn't detour me too much because I finished all of them now, and I'm on part two of willy's castle. So it won't be long now until I'm done with Mega Man 3. Hopefully tomorrow? Who knows. Depending on the difficulty I might be on it another week. Flash Man was laughably easy in Mega Man 2. This time he killed me over and over, and I think it's because of the weird stage. I just couldn't find a spot to avoid him. Then I just randomly shot a needle...and oh wait that's his weakness? I didn't even look it up. It was just desperation after losing so many times. I need to quit starting things. I'll get busy with school work again next month and won't finish any of them. Bug Fables was supposed to be a tribute to the older paper mario games, because it's very similar. Surprisingly Nintendo embraced it, considering they advertised it and put it on the shop.

    Bugs are tolerable, but crashing isn't. Especially when the console gets locked. My computer is pretty much just a homework device. (Chromebook) It's very quick and efficient, but loading any sort of game will cause delay. It doesn't even have steam. I had a friend who built his own computer, which astounded me. I wish I had kind of technical skill.

    I must ask, but how is the plot of Castlevania? Actually to be honest I've played one Castlevania. It was the original NES one because we had a really old copy in storage. Some older games do turn me away with clunky controls. I didn't feel that way at all with Mega Man, not even Mega Man 1. But with some games, it takes like 10 seconds before I figure out this feels unbearable. Twitch hosts an event called "Games Done Quick" occasionally. (Twice a year...i think). Speedrunners get together and marathon games for a week or two. With Twitch I usually get more amused by the chat than the actual stream. I haven't been active on twitch in so long. I just don't think I could get back into the "culture" of it. I still have my account, so sometimes I look at my old messages from a few years ago. They aren't terrible. But it feels like an a period of time where I really just wanted to fit in. But yeah I agree with what you mentioned about Pokemon Speedruns. In heart gold, the strategy is to manipulate the game into giving you Raikou. At that point the fun in watching completely disappears. It's just raikou clearing everything in the game.

    So I did look at Cave Story on the switch. It's priced at $30.00. I appreciate the recommendation, but I apologize because I don't think I could invest that much into something I've had such a hard time with. Just from the screenshots, it looks like something I might struggle getting into. Not to say that I'm completely turned off from it. I just want to be sure it's something I'll enjoy before making a purchase. I like that you mentioned it has a great plot, and it does make me curious. I'll give Super Metroid one more try and I'll keep you updated on how it goes. If I like it or not, I'll try to just get through it this one time. It could be a way of getting into the genre. I've actually played the original metroid for NES (again we had a cartridge). Now that was overwhelmingly difficult. I never got anywhere. Even the switch online version lets you start at the end, but I still somehow get lost. I'm in the minority who doesn't mind movie games. The linear ones that have little gameplay but 15 hours of cut-scenes. I get really into those.

    But yep FF6 has a gross amount of random encounters. Enough that when I was playing on an emulator I ended up using the speed feature. Usually I avoid that because I want to play like it was intended, but this was just too much. Ohh you said you were running around in Xenoblade, does that mean you got the definitive edition? Or are you just playing on the original version? If I haven't mentioned this, I love the Dragon Quest franchise. It's simplistic and light hearted, and honestly I can't get enough. Dragon Quest 11 is one of my favorite games of all time.

    Aw that's really cool. I'm glad you found your group. And yeah kids can be really mean. Hopefully being made fun of wasn't too prevalent in your experiences. The earliest years really can shape people. I have made a few friends on here and it does make me quite happy. If I haven't mentioned it, at one point I was a part of the social media team for about a year and a half. I decided to quit, when that happened one of the staff purchased me a community supporter status on here, which was really kind.

    Oh I remember you mentioned you had a december birthday, so I checked your profile which says it's today. Super happy birthday! 🎂 So cool how it's near christmas. So was my dad's (it would have been yesterday). I have a summer birthday, but having it around the holiday season seems so unique.

    I'm interesting to go back and see how much I've improved when I finish all of these. Because I'm still struggling along with Mega Man 3. I might finish it tonight, but the Wily's Castle section seem to drag at times. Did you get far into Mega Man 5? I imagine you would probably be much faster at it than I am. I know there's another crash bomber puzzle and I'm not looking forward to it. Maybe it wasn't a crash bomber puzzle but there was some sort of puzzle I remember getting stuck on. I need to finish some of the games I've started because I have way too many going. (New Vegas, Dragon Quest 11, Skyrim, Last of Us II, Life Is Strange II). I would like to start Bug Fables at some point.

    Fallout 3 had this DLC called "The Pitt" and it was the most buggy mess I've ever seen. Usually I can tolerate bugs but this was another story. It crashed every 5 minutes, kept deleting NPC's so I couldn't progress in the story, When the storyline was over, but all the enemies re-spawned on the way out and killed me. At one point I texted my brother and asked him what was up with this. His answer was along the lines of "Yep that's bethesda". Most of the time I laugh at bugs and find them amusing, unless it's stopping my progress. At that point it loses it's humor.

    Wait is bloodstained a castlevania game? Just taking a guess. It always feels strange when a glitch happens like what you mentioned. Like when you glitch into an area you shouldn't be in, and all you see is limbo. You don't see this much in new games, but in older games like Mario 64 you can shift the camera around and often times see straight through walls. Not sure if you watch any speedruns. I'm not an avid follower, but stuff like glitching to the end of Ocarina of Time in 20 minutes is pretty amazing. Also what you mentioned about Skyward Sword is the reason I never played it. We had the game, but didn't have the attachment for the wii remote.

    I would like to get into the genre. I tried Super Metroid but after about 10 minutes I gave up. When I first tried Super Metroid I kept reading about how the game wasn't meant to be played with a map, and I would be ruining it for myself. It ends up with me wandering all over the place, having no sense of direction. Eventually I get tired don't pick up the game again. Also I like plot driven stuff. Usually without a plot element I lose interest. But I also like the feeling of progression (Which is why I like Mega Man, you get all those cool power-ups). Maybe if there were an easy way to step into the genre. I might try Super Metroid one more time tonight. Also I heard good things about Hollow Knight. I mean regarding what you mentioned about Cave Story, I do like exploration, but at the same time it's an easy way for me to get tired of playing. Especially with enemies involved. It's sometimes like, why would I want to explore this path if it means 40 minutes of random encounters. NES RPG's are horrible about doing that. Chrono Trigger also respawned the enemies every time you left a room and I kept thinking, ugh why. It made dungeons with puzzles so incredibly tedious. It was why I stopped playing the first time.

    I do think it might be worth a go for FF7 one day, solely because you could end up missing something you might end up falling in love with. I didn't see much special about it, but then again everybody has differing opinions. I prefer Dragon Quest over Final Fantasy. If you ever play it I would try to forget the hype surrounding it and just treat it as a random JRPG. The FF7 remake is probably also way more engaging, but you can find the original for $7 to $15 now.

    Honestly I don't even have much of a presence online. Aside from Facebook, this is like the only website I use socially anymore. I've tried to get into communities like smaller twitch channels and discord. It never worked out that well. It feels like walking into a room full of strangers and trying to join a conversation, it equally makes my heart race. It's odd because when I was like 13-14 I was heavily into chat-rooms and could spend an entire day on them. As time went on I progressively became more introverted. It's even represented with the stuff I play. I was into MMO's and was even involved with clans and stuff, but now I never touch them.

    Oh, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Let me know if your interested in other clips. If anything notable or interesting happens I could upload and share. The PS4 is always recording gameplay automatically. Most of me playing probably isn't that interesting, just trial and erroring levels for hours. I'll be honest, I'm not a great player. However I believe I can beat anything with enough patience. Because hey guess what? I actually did beat that level today. I also beat Spark Man's doc stage. Just Gemini Man left to go. Your advice was actually very helpful. I think with all the tornado's on the screen I was just overwhelmed and not exactly making a strategy. But when I started slowing down and sliding under them, and picking my shots, I began winning consistently. So thank you.

    So here's a story. My older brother was texting me about how great New Vegas was, and if I enjoyed 3 I needed to try it. So I excitedly purchased it and built my character. As soon as I walked out the door into the open, the game crashed. I texted him and was like "Uh is this going to be a normal thing". His response "Yeah, but it auto saves so it's okay". To be honest it hasn't crashed that much aside from that incident. Sometimes my character glitches into an object and I have reload my save, that's the most annoying part. Idk if I mentioned this, but I think I've decided my faction. I'm going to go with the NCR. I didn't like how Mr. House was treating the courier when they walked in. Like you were obligated to help him or something. I also picked the wrong option and he sent his entire robot squad after me. That made me especially not want to help him.

    With Mario 64, I enjoyed the music of Jolly Rodger Bay and found it calming. I completely forgot to mention that. Tall Tall Mountain is absolutely my favorite level. I have this weird thing with video games where I like trying to stand on the highest point possible. I thought that level was perfect because the entire stage was built around that. When I played Grand Theft Auto 5, I was always taking the airplanes and seeing how close I could get to outer space.

    Those are two series I've never played (Castlevania and Bloodstained). Is Castlevania like a metroid-vania game? Honestly that's a genre I've struggled to get into. I've never been into the metroid series despite trying. I played Super Metroid for like 10 minutes with Switch Online. I was completely lost about everything and at the time wasn't feeling patient enough and turned it off. Speaking of Switch Online, there's a few things I need to try, such as the Donkey Kong Country series.

    I do appreciate the risk Nintendo took with changing the formula. Breath of the Wild was something different, and they could have faced some serious backlash from long time fans. While I'm also in the minority who would rather have the old formula back, I can't help but feel happy that so many people have enjoyed Breath of the Wild. To be honest it would be nice if they would be more innovative with Pokemon. If any series could use some change, that one is it. The spinoffs for Pokemon are incredible, but the games continue to be running the safest way possible. I think at this point I've finished every 3D Zelda except for Skyword Sword. I've heard a lot of people giving that game a hard time over the motion controls. It would be fun to play it someday. Okay to be honest I never actually finished Breath of the Wild. I finished two of the main dungeons before I tired out. I should have taken that as the point where I challenged Ganon, but I tried to keep going and burned out to the point where I don't want to touch it. And oh that's interesting. I love small details like that. Do you think Cave Story is worth playing? I looked it up and saw metroid-vania so ehhhhh. However if it has a good plot I would play it. If I haven't mentioned this, I love plot and being engrossed into a story. Plot is the most important thing for me with a game. However I'm still willing to try other things such as Mega Man.

    Be careful with the trap of "Need to play it because it's a classic". In my own experience, that often leads to me to expecting way too much and I don't end up enjoying it. I think that's what happened with FF7. I kept hearing "Best game of all time". But when I played it, it just felt like a standard JRPG. I mean it had some memorable moments, but for the most part I was like "When does this become the best game ever"? Chrono Trigger but I didn't like the first half. Again, I was just like "Why was this game being praised as perfect"? But in the second half I was completely engrossed by the atmosphere and story-line. For the most part I started trying to avoid reviews so I could form my own opinions. If I had relied on reviews, I would have never played Final Fantasy 13. That ended up being my favorite in the series, despite it being completely hated by the fanbase. Ohh you are getting Xenoblade Definitive version? I hope you enjoy it. That sounds so exciting. It's a very pretty game compared to the original.

    That's good, and I'm glad you were able to find that kind of motivation. I don't think you mentioned that about your family, but hopefully it still goes well for you. I get along with everybody, but I guess the catch is that I'm not an open person at all. For example I get along perfectly with my uncle. We can talk endlessly about sports and politics, but I just don't feel comfortable talking about myself. One day he told me "I wish I knew you better as a person". General Anxiety makes that incredibly difficult. I'm usually swarmed with thoughts about my own importance not mattering and the other person not liking me.

About Me

  • About Setsuna
    Quick Self-Introduction
    Hi, I'm Setsuna, PC's self-appointed Nijigasaki fangirl! ♡
    I'll often hang around Off Topic and Forum Games and spam cute anime girls!
    I tend to talk about my interests a lot, notably Pokemon and Love Live, but I'm quick to mention anything else I enjoy so if you stick around me for long enough I'm sure I'm easy to get to know.~
    I came to PC from overseas on a different forum and I'm slowly settling in and finding people to socialize with, I feel like I may try to connect with people too quickly so please let me know if you need space!

    I often talk about Setsuna, this character I love, but who is she? Setsuna Yuki is one of my favourite characters from Love Live Nijigasaki who's passionate about things like anime and school idols and eager to talk about them. I really relate to her and thought a Setsuna theme for my account would be really pretty, and I've fallen for her.~

    If you're interested in getting to know me, drop me a message or swing into a thread if you see me active in!

    I think "The shocked loli profile pic" is the best way anyone's described my accounts so far in my entire life. | 4/23/19
