Good afternoonish time, everyone! What are we all doing to stay sane these days? Myself, it’s the usual–reading, writing, TV, video games, wishing a plague upon my enemies. I’ve been hitting the Pratchett pretty hard lately, and I started watching Grimm, which is kind of dumb but a fun distraction.
But my number one diversion right now is video games. Specifically Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, which is just a blast if you’re into JRPGs with very deep leveling systems. I also want to put in a plug for The Outer Wilds, one of the finest video games I’ve ever played. Weighing in at ~twenty hours of nonviolent exploration and puzzles, it’s got a great story and is just a joy to experience. Think Subnautica in space, and without the monsters.
I have, lastly, been taking solace in these fine playlists of Japanese 80s music.
What about you all? I’m also accepting recommendations for some horror movies to watch. My favorite lately were Annihilation and Midsommar.
