RE: Anime! Who's watching what?
I've been watching a bit of Bakemonogatari and Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai recently. Really enjoying both so far, both of them draw me in primarily by their style of story presentation. Bakemonogatari's use of typography, animation style changes, and cinematography is lovely: it's so eclectic but never loses it's cohesion and identity. Meanwhile, Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai is just ridiculously absurd in it's dramatization.
I also watched (and finished) Neon Genesis Evangelion. I started watching it years ago, but I stopped watching halfway through. Anyway it's a long time ago so I barely remember things that happened, which kinda makes it a first watch experience. I also enjoyed this, loving the action scenes and the batshit crazy stuff that happens later on. I feel like I'm being dragged to a deep dark hole, in those later episodes. I need to watch the End of Evangelion soon.
RE: Do you have high FPS tolerance?
Same here. I'm quite sensitive towards FPS fluctuations (as in I can tell if it's dropping a couple frames), but they never really bothered me. Control dropped to like 10-15 frames for like 10 seconds one time and I was completely unfazed. Days Gone was filled with constant frame drops and I never really got sick of it. CS GO barely runs on my laptop (25 FPS average) and I still do kinda well at it.
Oh yeah, I also played 70% The Witcher 3 in sub-30 FPS average. Played the game on PS4, there's one patch that improved the graphics but the framerate took a major hit. By the time a new patch rolls out, I took my PS4 with me to a remote location so I couldn't patch it. I was strolling through Novigrad in 20-25 FPS range and I couldn't care less.
RE: The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2012!
Holy shit KS got in! Clutch @Exist-2-Inspire with that full 5 points.
To put it simply, It's a visual novel dating sim game set in a school for disabled people. There's 5 characters to date, which basically means the game can go in 5 different main routes (and 1 extra one if you're a dumdum). Each route are handled so differently in tone, moral, and writing style. One of the routes is quite depressing and surreal, while one of the other ones goes for a cliche romantic movie feel (and it's my favorite one). There's not one that I disliked. I think I shed at least a tear during each of them.
The biggest strength of this game for me is that those 5 characters are actually well written and memorable. They all have their own virtues, struggles, secrets. It's hard not to get invested in learning more about them in their respective routes, and care for them more as it goes. There's some cool supporting characters too, like your comic relief paranoid neighbor, or the shy but wise librarian. It's a fantastic cast overall.
I also like to give a shoutout to the music. Lots of great tunes here. The main menu theme (Wiosna) still makes me cry a bit to this day. The song itself is beautiful, but that's not really the reason it impacted me. It's just that after ending each route, you'll go back to the main menu, and that subconsciously makes me associate the emotional feels of the endings with that song, and boy it can feel a bit too much for me at times when I'm listening to it. Anyway, here's one of my favorites:
Considering how this game is made and came out to be, it still surprises me that I got so much out of it. Who knew that a free game that I downloaded because of pure curiosity would open my eyes to so many things in life? It did a lot to my 14 year old brain.
