Very late reply but, cool! I've always admired the amount of work cosplayers put into their costumes. You can tell when someone's put a lot of pride and attention to detail into it. Also, holy ****, you guys are still together? Congrats!We went to Baltic Comiccon.
Naru even cosplayed. A charater whose name is impossible to pronounce from that final fantasy mmo that has consumed her life
Our friend was Skeletor.
Was a cool experience, especially when Naru was up almost two full days with about 1 hour of sleep total.
Event day, she had to wake up at 6 or about so, we went to sleep at about 2, finishing her costume.
So I happened to see this trailer earlier:
My overwhelming impression was that this was Generic Video Game: The Video Game. Like, maybe I'm just in a cynical mood today, but it feels like the developers of this game have practically no imagination. The overall idea for the gameplay might be a bit different from what we see everywhere else, with two teams of four using stealth to outplay the AI and each other while trying to capture the
flagloot, but the actual gameplay and the UI both look like I-don't-even-know how many other games.
And that was before I even saw the classes. It'd be one thing if you could create your own character, but no, that'd require imagination. And could the characters look realistic, or at least believeable? No, they have to look like painfully generic fantasy characters with all the tropes. We have to have The Ranger, with his Devastating Longbow. The Hunter, with his Burstfire Crossbow (wrist-mounted, of course!). Invisibility and smoke grenades! The Brawler, aka The Big Guy with the Big Sledgehammer. "When he activates his Wrath Ability, he becomes a melee powerhouse." The Mystic, who can Detect Nearby Enemies, and has Healing Abilities. Oh, and you can use your rewards to "develop your hideout", too! Jesus. I wonder how many people have pre-ordered it already...
Congratulations Arvenski, you've reached the final human form: grumpy adulthood. Things suck and you are fully aware of it.
Yeah, I read about some of that last night. It's so maddening and depressing. Thousands of lives lost, ruined, or scarred for no good reason. This war should never have happened.That's obvious advice when reacting to a troll. But it's obvious also that an efficient troll will find your weak spot and strike at an opportune time.
I have not been as terrified and angry in my entire life. And this putinoid narrative really adds insult to injury.
Yesterday I've learned of more "Buchas" uncovered in freed settlements of Kharkiv region. More people executed, women and small children raped. I wish I could pretend it's governmental propaganda. But unfortunately, due to my professional ties, I know for a fact that this is true and it happens en masse. It makes me stay awake at night.
