I picked up Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. I haven’t finished Hollow Realization just yet, but given the differences in atmosphere between both games, I don’t see a reason why I shouldn’t pick it up. I’m excited about playing it today. I’ve been watching SAO: Season 2 to get some backstory, but it shouldn’t be required to enjoy the game.
Thought about social media the other day. I am starting to feel some Facebook withdrawls. I’m still using Messenger and the login features, but it’s hard not to be curious about what’s going on everywhere else. Taking a look at my feed, I had about 30 updates, most of them from various groups I’m subscribed to, and about 2 of them are replies to my “Leaving Facebook” post which were calling me out for saying the community is toxic. It’s basically who I follow, yes, but when I “Like” on Facebook the local news station, see a report about something Trump did and a bunch of posts from ignorant people about how “evil” liberals are, it really turns me off…makes me feel depressed even…as if I don’t need enough of that in my life.
Twitter is a bit better, I can easily unsubscribe from feeds I don’t like an just cater it to what I do want to read. Celebrities I follow, gaming sites and blogs I read, and people like me who are interested in the same things. Where Facebook is catered more toward people, friends, and ads…Twitter is catered to exactly what I like.
The only negative aspect of Twitter that I can find is that feeds just move way too fast. I step away for a couple hours and I’m suddenly faced with 50+ feeds to sort through. I can’t read that fast, yet I don’t want to miss out on anything important!
Other news, preordered Train Sim World: Northeast Corridor. I’m looking forward to playing another US route, especially in New York. There’s a route based off it in TS2018 that I’m playing through in the meantime…got a bit frusterated at a scenario so I’m probably just going to explore the route in Quick Drive.
The only problem is that I think I can only run one Quick Drive at a time, and with my Plymouth to London route, I’m only in Taunton which is between Exeter and Bristol, which is the Southwest of England. So there’s about an hour and a half of driving left in that route…yikes. I’m going nearly 100mph so it’s not too bad of a drive though.
Other than that, life is pretty boring. I haven’t been gaming too much the last few days due to being just busy. By the time I’m done with what I have to do at home, it’s already 9PM and I’m getting ready for bed. The problem I have is that if I stop something for a day or more, it’s very difficult to get back to it…before I know it a month has passed and I can’t remember what I was doing in that project or game.
Anyways, that’s all I have to say for today. Just going to keep blogging as much as I can (for the above reason!) otherwise I’ll just stop and forget about it.
