Sword, Tiara & High Heels Chapter 93

Starfield modding has exploded much much quicker than I expected.
I was aware that since it was Creation Engine that the modders would basically be able to slide right in with what they learned from Skyrim and Fallout but still.

The Creation Kit successor isn’t even out yet and people are already making stuff!
Now granted most of it is still comparatively basic, but that’s still impressive to me.
I’m hoping that someone will work out how to make custom equipable item skins sometime because I really want to change the visuals of the NG+ armours you get.

Automata Maid Chapter 116

When it comes to posting chapters sometimes I get stuck on the pre-chapter rambles for longer than when I have to do the actual editing.
Especially on days like today where I need to come up with four unique things.

So lets talk about manga and comics etc that I am reading.
I started Catastrophic Necromancer recently, which is like if Solo Levelling and Versatile Mage had a child together.
I also found out that Legend of Star General hadn’t actually been dropped but for some reason wasn’t on mangadex for a whole bunch of chapters? I don’t remember anything that happened though so I might drop it anyway.

And then uh… just my usual isekai trash!

Automata Maid Chapter 115

In a discord I’m in one of the people of the server regularly reports on the state of allergens in the area, such as pollens and molds etc.
But they always preface the posts with stuff like “Atlanta is trying to kill me” for example.

My brain always defaults to imagining Jason’s ultimate ability in Fate which just summons the Argonauts to his side, who then relentless bully him.
“Why is Atalanta trying to kill you?”

Anyway just goes to show how I read things.

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist Chapter 7-6

I just finished the mission “Entangled” on Starfield and boy, the entire thing was basically like that level of Titanfall 2 just less fluid.
Which makes sense, you know it’s an RPG not an action game, of course it’s not going to be a tight motion based fluid level.

But anyway, it hit me when I started going back and forth and I loved every minute of it.
Probably tied with the “First Contact” mission for my favourite.
Although the section with the museum in “Unearthed” had me smiling ear to ear too.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 924 Part 1

It seems the latest political war in the UK is over a dog breed!
Honestly nonsensical but… it is what it is.
I see both sides, but there’s no easy fix to this.

On one hand if a dog breed is a common problem then banning it makes sense.
On the other hand the reason the breed is a common problem is because of the socioeconomic background of those that prefer the breed.
So it’s not actually a problem with the dogs… but the easiest solution is to ban them…
It leads to a weird circle.

I think just for simplicity I support banning the breed, but lets be honest the problem will persist because that demographic will just switch breed and they will be the next problem.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 922

I’m still trying to recover after finishing Blue Archive.
That feels, the hype…
Ah it’s amazing.

The way it all pulled together, the story notes it connected, the way it developed the characters and world…
All of it was just handled so perfectly. It’s amazing, I love it.
I can’t wait to see how they manage to top this in a couple of years.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 921

Updated this ramble:
Overwatch recently gave official ages for their characters!
And they’re so arbitrarily picked that it’s proving the point that age is totally nonsense for fictional characters!

People have calculated that one of the girls mother must have been around 13 when they gave birth to her!
Which is nuts.
But now nobody is allowed to complain about anime, that’s how it works. I make the rules and I say so.

Automata Maid Chapter 114

As you know I’ve been playing Starfield lately.
I have 27 hours in it so far (from official release, not early access!) and recently finished the UC Vanguard storyline.
I really enjoyed that one, and it had some great world building stuff in it!

I don’t mean lore either.
I mean actual player impact on the world at large!
There were multiple points in the story where the news radio spoke about stuff I was doing, where NPCs changed their reactions, and where there were little set pieces in the levels to reflect ongoing events, and then at the end there were distinct changes in the attitudes of some people in radiant dialogue.

Automata Maid Chapter 113

Since this is an Automata chapter let’s discuss Nier Automata.
Only one thing though…

Has anyone else noticed how weirdly frequent Nier does collabs with things?
Like why is that?
Do companies want Nier collabs? Does Nier want collabs? It’s a big franchise so do they just not charge much for collabs? Or what?
It’s strange to me! I want to know!

Sword, Tiara & High Heels Chapter 91

I have a terrible habit of getting distracted when doing these editing runs for this, they take twice or three times as long as they need to because I will do things on my other monitor.
If I just focused I could blitz through them much much faster.

I know some of the delay is coming up with rambles however, but that’s not all of the reason.
I really do just get distracted.
That’s it! No more distractions today!

Sword, Tiara & High Heels Chapter 90

I finished reading Blue Archive’s “Volume F” story today.
What a ride that was, honestly haven’t felt that excited about things since probably… when I finished the first arc of Grand Order?

The way it came together was amazing.
Anyway no spoilers but like, if you want compelling writing in gacha games then somehow Blue Archive has nailed it.

The Guild’s Cheat Receptionist Chapter 7-5 Part 2

Someone got arrested and jailed in Japan for copyright infringement over sharing youtube videos of visual novels, and people are getting mad about it for some reason?
Visual novels have always had some degree of content embargos on them because you literally kill all reason to buy them if you can just watch the entire thing.
It’s not rare to see fresh releases have a clause that prevents showing material of them beyond a certain point in the story in their entirety, forbid commentary-less runs and/or ending videos.

Not to mention the youtuber was making edits to reduce run time. Essentially condensing the story into an abridged and more easily consumed form. Without commentary!
That will harm sales because some people don’t want to sit through a 20+ hour visual novel.

All the online outrage seems to be just around “evil corporation crushing youtuber with copyright abuse” and it’s completely missing the nuance of the case.
A visual novels gameplay is the story, so by putting that story out there you are violating copyright.
The fact they were cutting down the runtime by removing any of the filler parts which makes it more consumable than the source material, which makes it a substitute. AND the content was monetized.

This guy deserved to be slapped with copyright infringement.
