It's official: I'm getting my tax return and my stimulus in one fell swoop! Most of it is going to my car payment, buuuuuuut I know I wanna get Kaito's V1, and maybe a few more? Who, I'm not sure, but Kaito for sure.
I wanna take the plunge and get a Vsinger or 5, but with the three I want most getting V5 updates so soon, it wouldn't be worth it. I could round out my Medium5 collection, and that's the direction I'm leaning in... if I do that, I'm just a Maika away from fulfilling my "Really, Really Want" list, and Maika's pretty moderately priced.
Just can't... overdo it. Got car payments to make.
It's official: I have a Baidu account and can log into it through the Netdisk Client. Which means I can download literally anything off of Baidu now, without having to go through third-party servers. And I didn't have to buy a Chinese phone number or use any information other than my own.
The power has gone to my head. Ten days ago I posted a few links to r/BaiduDownloader and got no response, and quickly realized NO ONE was getting any responses, which is what kickstarted my dive into shady corners of the internet for methods as of yet undiscovered by most. And now that I've figured out how to get files off of Baidu, big and small?
I'm gonna do what the creator of the subreddit isn't: help people.
I'm not sure if it was just an engine update thing or if they updated Genbu himself (I think it's just the engine because he's still on Version 100 for me), but he's gotten a lot more solid on Studio since launch! Still, I wish his lows didn't give out so easily... G1 Genbu would be PERFECT for a Sweet's Beast cover, but I can't see using his Pro for the same song.
Not to say I'm not gonna try anyway, because holy crap, if I could pull it off, he would KILL that song.

I will always quietly mourn being unable to own Lola; I know she's Old and Not Great, but back when I thought I could still get my hands on her, I even picked out a cover for her. So if you ever walk into an Office Depot and find an employee in a sunflower hairclip watering the sad single plant outside with her tears, it's me, anguished that I'll never be able to make Lola sing "THREE SIX NINE GIRLS WANNA DRINK WINE, TELL THE MAN NOT TO WASTE YOUR TIME"
If it happens that Ling’s beta can only be accessed for Chinese users, I do have a Chinese IP that doesn’t expire for another three weeks... and if it takes longer I’ll happily dish out $12.99 to do it again. So if anyone wants her~
As quick as I was to jump to Olive Town's defense, its replay value is really, really low, at least for more experienced players or anyone wanting something resembling a challenge. I beat the whole game in two in-game seasons and discovered through various searches that that's it; nothing new happens afterwards (except a scene where the mayor makes you feel like the dumbest, least helpful person ever), and the fact that you can see everyone's heart events even after you're married and the lack of romantic dialogue anyway makes the thought of playing again for the sake of going after someone else less appealing.
Hmm... I guess I tend to prefer games that either take a long time and a solid effort to complete (SNES, MM, HoLV, 3oT) or have no solid goals and therefore let you make your own from the get-go (FoMT, SoS, MM once you realize the main plot can be treated like a sidequest). Even on Normal Mode (which I think is the closest this series will ever come to a Hard mode), I kept having to check and make sure I hadn't accidentally chosen Seedling Mode. It was rewarding at first, but now that I've accomplished everything in so little time, with relatively little effort...
At the very least, it's a great game for getting your toes wet.
Alright VVN, listen up! It's 1AM here, April 10th. About 365 days ago, about this exact hour, a conversation with Patuk took a turn I never fully expected it to, and though I was a little nervous, I was happy. And about 365 days later, I'm even more happy than I ever thought I could be in a relationship.
This is for Patuk. She's my best friend. She's always here to make me laugh and listen to my problems, and without even trying, she makes me feel more loved than anyone ever has. This past year hasn't been easy, but with her by my side, I've been able to keep my head up and push through. I've never met someone so patient and kind and funny and wonderful and I'm eternally grateful to be loved by her, and it's an honor to love her in return.
