Why just distract yourself when you could ALSO listen to a [podcast]?

How're y'all distracting yourselves WHILE distracting yourselves?

    I am unable to be distracted by more than one thing at a time, I just get distracted by the new thing and completely stop paying attention to the previous distraction

    Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention, but the latest Rude Tales didn't strike any significant chords for me. I did recently Patronise them though and have been listening to Rude Talks and it's very good.

    I've been listening to podcasts while I play persona 3 the answer, that's a grindy one, especially if you're like me and don't know what strategy is

    Off-Book had to switch up their format because trying to synchronize an improvised musical over Zoom is...unrealistic, so they're just talking and then doing solo improv songs/raps over premade beats and it's...weird!

    I don't know where else to post about this, but I just 100% Assassin's Creed Black Flag

    It's up there with my favorite games, so it feels good to have mastered it (and it's DLCs!)

    Now it's onto Rogue, which I played for a few days via Redbox, thought was really cool, and then never played again

    Rude Tales has, as a Patreon feature, a feature called "Radio Free Cordelia"

    The cast contributes songs, poems, it's all p. good

    In the first entry, Chris Hastings delivers a "DJ set" that feels so AGGRESSIVELY TARGETED at me that I am actively unsettled

    It's true. That's why we vote on things by raising our hands instead of our feet. Although I think the law on that is shifting in some states.

    Totally unspoilery FF7 thing inspired by Waypoint's podcast

    I didn't know Cloud/Tifa vs Cloud/Aerith was a thing

    Why would anyone pick Aerith

    Like she seems fine

    But Tifa? Tifa buff

    Well that kind of has to do with actual spoilery stuff from the original game

    but even without revealing actual plot details, it's obvious from context that Cloud is definitely crushing on Aerith, while Tifa has an unrequited childhood crush on Cloud

    it's very japanese soap opera-ish

    the cloud/aerith stuff gets even weirder when you remember how many character traits of aerith fans actively erase so that she's just innocent smiling wife girl

    Yeah as someone who barely knows anything about FF7 my only experiences were with her in Kingdom Hearts and the internet, and between those two I didn't realize that she apparently has the ability to be like...snarky

    Hearing them talk about that on Waypoint was eye-opening

    I picked up my game of FF7 I started a few weeks ago.

    I just snuck out of Aerith's house.

    I'm curious about what the future FF7R games do with Vincent and Yuffie

    Vincent's backstory is surprisingly critical to much of what happens in 7, but it's hidden in a cave at the very end of the game

    Yuffie, I think they have to expand Wutai a lot, because it's hard to believe this single town was able to fight a war against Shinra for as long as they did

    I very much remember her as being that way and I've been trying to deconstruct why that's the case ever since I listened to the recent Waypoint

    I'm also doing the first half of this which means I've just been messing with mods all morning and now I think I'm finally done. Are you using Forests of Skyrim because it's crazy how different it makes parts of that game feel.

    Yuffie and Vincent had a really fun dynamic in Dirge of Cerberus, it's a shame that it's all stuck in Dirge of Cerberus.

    Yuffie also had lots of good stuff with Zack in Crisis Core, and I imagine they'll put a lot of the work done there into Remake Wutai.

    I mean that's basically how she's portrayed in every appearance outside of FF7 itself.

    And just old fashioned cultural osmosis

    To be honest while how fans treat aeris is especially gross, I think this happened to most of the cast

    Like how cloud was talked about and how I remembered him for over a decade was as the overly silent brooding sad boy, and it wasn’t until a few years ago playing it again that I remembered he has so much more character to him than that

    Kind of like coming into EVA in 2019 and wondering who the fuck thought deeply traumatized adolescents were the perfect vector for merchandising everything.
