Alchemist Startover Chapter 79

New Chapter!
I decided to finally finish the first season of Mashle so I could work through the second season.
It’s pretty good.
I’m not sure it’s as great as the impression everyone gave me when it started, but it’s been enjoyable.

I’m looking forward to seeing how it progresses at least, then I will move on to something else in my backlog.
It’s been a while since I watched anime properly like this… how nostalgic.

Alchemist Startover Chapter 78

New Chapter!
I got my artist friend to start work on redesigning my OC and they presented a scifi themed one and a fantasy themed one.
The scifi themed design was pure, pure, pure Phantasy Star vibes.
It was so on point for Phantasy Star I was shocked.

Naturally I chose it…
I mean… how couldn’t I?!
I love the magical tech aesthetic of Phantasy Star!

I will probably get a pure fantasy redesign done after… maybe…

Alchemist Startover Chapter 77

New Chapter!
I finally got round to playing the Talos DLC again, and managed to finish the second chapter of it.
That was a lot of fun, nice casual gameplay and rewarding to see the relaxed side of the main characters just having fun together too.

It was a really well done piece of epilogue content, as opposed to the first chapter which felt just oddly forced and out of place.
I’ll have to see how the third goes, because it’s the most lore heavy in context.

Alchemist Startover Chapter 76

New Chapter!
At the behest of a friend I started watching the latest season of Misfit Demon Lord… and…
Wow the quality of the writing has dropped immensely.
I wonder if this arc worked way better in the novels, because in the anime it’s just… soooo much lore, and none of the characters get any breathing room.

There was a random episode all about training, which probably made sense in novel format for adjusting the power levels of characters and stuff, but it felt weirdly out of place and specific.
Well, basically it’s botched the adaptation I think.

Alchemist Startover Chapter 75

New Chapter!
The Steam summer sale has started!
So many discounts!
I think I can safely avoid spending this time though…
The games I want are nearing the end of their production cycle and will have their final big patches soon, so I will probably pick them up after that just to ensure compatibility and getting the maximum experience.

In the meantime I have games I bought ages ago to keep playing, and the Talos DLC that I am slowly working through due to being occupied with gachas…

Alchemist Startover Chapter 74

New Chapter!
I finished the Steins;Gate and Neural Cloud crossover event.
It was great.

The story was basically the plot of Steins;Gate but lightened up (in terms of duration, it still had the heavy themes) ported over to the setting of Neural Cloud. They really did not shy away from going in dark directions with everything. Sadly due to being a collab they couldn’t make it integral to the main story of Neural Cloud, but they really pushed it as close as they could.
It’s a bit of a shame they didn’t include some more Steins;Gate 0 content though… Kurisu’s field of research is actually memory scanning and AI development, which is exactly the sort of content Neural Cloud is fundamentally based around! But that’s my only complaint.

I think it nailed being a crossover with “Steins;Gate” specifically, but as a crossover with Steins;Gate as a franchise it left out some parts and it left out everything from the Science Adventure Series as a whole.

Alchemist Startover Chapter 73

New Chapter!
The new Hololive girls debuts are soon.
I am looking forward to trying to figure out where Elizabeth is from in the UK.
I’ve seen an oddly high number of people hoping she’s southern specifically…

is there something about southern accents that are good?
I’m from the south so I don’t think I can understand that sentiment at all because everyone has that accent here…

Alchemist Startover Chapter 72

New Chapter!
So Firefly released today…
I used every drop of currency I had left to get her…

Which is painful.
Because immediately after I got told by a friend that I need Ruan Mei to maximise her use…
And also apparently her Light Cone.
And also at least one dupe of her too…
Ah.
So basically I am screwed.
