@tokeeffe9 I ended up with plenty to say in my comment, even after realizing I had only seen a couple Mockumentaries myself. I've seen a lot more TV mockumentaries than movies, so at least in that regard I've got a lot of mockumentary hours under my belt and 'Documentary Now' provides a lot of variety to draw from too. The discussion from this episode has definitely encouraged me to try to get some more movies on my viewing list though!
Not much to say.

@AndreCharles You are in for such a trip! Enjoy the ride, take it easy, and have fun! Just remember that potential spoilers for the current episode aren't hidden in this thread, if you're trying to avoid them! :)
RE: That's News!
@DMCMaster Based on some of the language from the FAQ it seems like this has actually been around for a while... since most places reference the current year when writing faq stuff.
Via the FAQ page:
For example, let's say you earn 10,000 Sony Rewards points in 2014. You use 5,000 of your points before the end of December, leaving 5,000 points unused at the start of 2015. You will have until March 31, 2015, to use the remaining 5,000 points that you earned in 2014.
So I guess with that in mind it kind of makes sense that it's not retroactive as well, since any points from 2016 or earlier would have expired by now anyways. :/
RE: Trophies & Achievements
I don't usually go into any game with the intention to 100% it... if I really like it, and getting all the achievements isn't too daunting, then I might do it. I won't usually look at the trophies or achievements until I've played through once or played a good chunk of a longer or open ended game.
I actually have done a lot more completions this year than usual. Oxenfree, What Remains of Edith Finch, and a couple short indie games. Oh and I went back and replayed Long Live the Queen specifically to 100% it back in January.
My rarest Achievements are displayed on my Steam profile though, so I guess I care about it at least a little bit, haha.
RE: Night in the Woods (PC/OSX/PS4)
@Haru17 I'm so happy it is coming to Switch! I already had a friend text me earlier today saying they would play it once the Switch version came out. So many indies lend themselves to being playable on the go or on a smaller screen. I can't say I would have opted to get it on PS4 either for the same reason, it's tough to demand TV time so I stick to my handheld and my PC.
RE: What Shaped You As A Gamer?
Haha, the easy answer for me is divorce.
My parents divorced when I was 3 and it really impacted what games I could play when. My mom and dad individually bought me a Gameboy, each with a copy of Pokemon Red/Blue, so I got very accustomed to playing handheld games! It also meant I had something just for me that I didn't have to share with my sister. My mom prefers the outdoors, so game consoles weren't big in our house. We had an NES and that was basically it until we convinced her to buy a PS2, a few years after it released, because it could play DVDs. Mario and Duckhunt and NES Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy were probably the most played games in her house. I tried so hard to play The Adventure of Link, the only LoZ game we owned, but child me was terrible at it. I pinpoint that as the reason that the LoZ series never worked its way into my heart. We didn't have a PC until I was almost done with elementary school (so 1998-ish) and most of the games we had were freebies we got from cereal boxes and fast food restaurants. I played a lot of Clue. Beyond those we had a lot of The Sims games/expansions and I loved that series.
At my dad's house though, they pretty much had every major console that wasn't an XBox. Atari 2600, NES-Gamecube, Sega Genesis, and PS1 and 2. We also had a PC that was capable of playing better games than my mom's. So every other weekend, and during the summer, I would just binge on games at my Dad's. Sometimes we would go out and rent a game from Blockbuster for the weekend, but usually I just had to pick from whatever they had available. That is how I ended up playing Kingdom Hearts, which I was convinced I would hate, and Animal Crossing, one of my favorite games of all time. We had a lot of Pokemon games, even Hey You Pikachu! I hated being at my dad's though, so games were really an escape for me. Animal Crossing became the perfect game because I was living out a happier, more positive life in that little town.
When it comes to my tastes though, I was actually thinking about it the other day and I used to read a lot as a kid, it was probably a bigger escape for me than video games just because they were more accessible. Much like CGamor7, I loved Choose Your Own Adventure books though and I would make it a point to read to through every possible scenario. A lot of my favorite games today are ones with branching narratives that need multiple playthroughs to fully enjoy (Night in the Woods, Undertale, Oxenfree, Life is Strange, Until Dawn, ect;). I also like a lot of adventure games and tend to gravitate towards narrative heavy experiences. Visual Novels and Life/Dating Sims end up on my play list a lot as well. The life sims are probably largely in part to being a very introverted person, it gives me a way to test out social situations without the pressure and anxiety involved with actually talking to people. My current top tag suggestions on Steam are Exploration, Story Rich, Single Player, Atmospheric, and Survival but usually Female Lead is in there too... I think all the hours I put into Sunless Sea this past month bumped Survival onto the list.
RE: Night in the Woods (PC/OSX/PS4)
Night in the Woods: Weird Autumn Edition comes out December 13th. The game will now be available for XBox One, in addition to all the systems it was previously on, and it was very much implied that a Switch version is in the works as well but they can't say it officially yet. This new version adds the short side games "Lost Constellation" and "Longest Night", which were released while the game itself was in development, as well as additional content to the game proper. If you already own NitW you'll get the new content as a FREE update.
From the trailer it looks like we'll at least get a new song, or maybe the option to play bass outside of band practice? There is definitely a new mini game segment and some new story sections, so I'm pretty excited! I wonder if any of the cut content that people have discovered was finished up and added in?
RE: The early days of being an Anime fan
@KimonoNoNo Yeah, the anime fans of the 80's and 90's, who lived outside of Japan, had it bad. Just thinking about the fact that Fan Dubs existed during that time and getting them required shipping someone money and a blank VHS so they would make a copy and mail it back!
