    This has been one of the major reasons why I've been gravitating more and more towards PC gaming and only buying the occasional PS game (either due to exclusivity or I'd rather play in on console). Sony loves to alienate their player base and while I love the Playstation and Sony it's getting to the point where I really do want to see them take a huge L and learn just how to take care of the players that support them. I mean Microsoft learned that the hard way with the One and only really started recovering once the One X came out. They've really set themselves up great with Game Pass (but we'll see how long that lasts, not really sustainable to give out free games (even brand new one) for free for a low monthly fee) and their acquisition of Bethesda gives them a huge library of games, both future and past, to really sell Game Pass and the Series X (though with Bethesda's recent flops I'm not entirely sure it's a good thing).

    Playstation 5

    While nice it still falls way short of what they should of done to begin with, give us a bigger internal drive. Sadly they could easily make them run on external drives if they just take the internal one and sell them as external add-ons (not like the option is great, they'd probably cost more then they're worth). My major concern here is what USB drives are actually compatible? All it says in their faq is USB 3.0 or higher and not all will be compatible. Are we talking Passports, external HDD's, or USB sticks? We talking certain brands or every brand? Sigh, I own so much external storage and the thought that I'd need to buy a new one just for this depresses me if the current one I'm using on my PS4 won't work. Sigh, Sony really out here this generation just pissing people off (though I don't know how many people are pissed about storage capacity like I am). Man, really starting to think it's not worth buying a PS5 anymore (even if I do want one).

    Battlefield V

    I'm always impressed by battlefield and how they progress the game with each version coming out. My favorite is still battlefield for mostly due to the maps and weapons though.

    Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

    Its because our government is more dysfunctional than at any point in history. Say what you want about Trump... he exposed it for what it was. There was literally no reason to reverse the executive order on insulin prices and now they're skyrocketing again because Trump bad. Biden is a fucking husk of a human being. You can't tell me thats the same person that debated Ryan in the VP debates when Romney was running. Each time the party switches they're just going to undo everything the last admin did and its gonna be a seesaw non stop every 4-8 years. Who is even running this nation? The debt is astronomical because neither party cares anymore. We have a super dependence on the Chinese for so much stuff now, we have to tread lightly.

    Fruits Basket openings have all been winners as have the endings. Whoever has been choosing the songs needs a raise because they're doing a damn good job. Hmmm, it'd be hard to me to even pick between all the good openings over the last couple years (and even from this past winter season, there a few damn good ones) but I'll see your five with five of my own I'm starting out with the best of my five and that goes to Sincerely from Violet Evergarden (you name dropped it so I'm here to drop the opening). From the minute I heard it I fell in love with the song and I can't hear it without tears streaming out of my eyes (yes I'm an emotional wreck when it comes to VE). Next on the list goes to Chaos Drifters from No Guns No Life Season 2, While I love Motor City from Season 1 I'm obsessed with this song and it's actually one of my most played songs on Spotify (god damn banger it is). Third on this list goes to Rise from Shield Hero, fucking banger of an opening (as is Faith, the second opening but I personally prefer Rise). Surprisingly enough this opening is what actually sold me on watching the show since it does a pretty good job of encapsulating what the show is about (and lets face it, Naofumi is probably one of the most relatable protagonists in any isekai show to date). We all knew this was going to happen since I absolutely adore the show and three of its four openings, it's Mayday from Fire Force. As DX can attest this show is freaking awesome and I feel Mayday does the best job of encapsulating that no only in the animation but the song as well. I adore Inferno (opening 1) and Spark-Again (opening 3) but Mayday is just fucking amazing. And last but certainly not least my fifth pick. This song was literally an obsession of mine from the moment I heard it (and we discussed this much earlier in this topic I believe) and that would be Shadowgraph from Boogiepop Phantom. MYTH & ROID have quite a few amazing songs (Jingo Jungle from Saga of Tanya the Evil, Voracity, Hydra and L.L.L. from Overlord) Shadowgraph has resonated with me and completely sucked me in. The ending from Boogiepop Phantom (Whiteout) is also amazing but I'm sticking to openings here. While not part of the top five thing I also wanted to post one of my favorites from the 2021 winter season. While not my absolute favorite (that belongs to The Promised Neverland's S2 opening (even if S2 is a dumpster fire but I won't get into that here)) it's from one of my favorite Japanese Rock bands (in fact this is there first ever anime opening) and I feel they don't get anywhere near the attention they absolutely deserve. Different by Band-Maid, these girls absolutely kill everything they do and this is no exception and I'm so glad they were chosen to do this for Season 3 of Log Horizon.

    Spider-Man (PS4 exclusive)

    I never got the first Spider-Man but since this came with my PS5 bundle here is my quick take Pros: The game was hella fun. Movement, combat, abilities. All good. The skill tree was kinda lame, but it didn't matter. You always had a choice to go in and fight or stealth. This game is hella easy for the most part because stealth is so good. Basically enemies never look up. Cons: This game was clearly meant to be just an expansion. It's not worth $50. Its apparently half the length of the first game... its very short. Its a shame too because the story, voice acting, and just the game as a whole is great. They should be charging $30 for this game not $50. Wait for it to go on discount. Also the last boss fight has a section that inexcusably frustrating. I don't like when they change the game worlds rules to make a boss more frustrating.

    Gonna be a redundant post sorta... but with my anime watching getting more active now that dubs are more fequent even if they're a few weeks behind. Here are my top openings of the past few years.... maybe more distant since its a blur since COVID started. Cop Craft - Man this show was so much fun. Just a good ole buddy cop anime... kinda like Bright on Netflix.... but better? Def worth a watch. Fruits Basket - So many fucking feels man... so many good openings and outros. At the end of the day I gotta stick with the one that started it all... such a beautiful melody. Violet Evergarden will always be a king of animation quality.. but man FB is really good in that department too. ZOMBIE LAND SAGA - The only pop idol anime I really got into because of its interesting premise. I love this OP so much. Fairy Tail has so many banger openings... say what you want about the series and its power of friendship. Its not perfect... but man I love all the characters and most of the arcs. It is what it is... but this OP toppled the Grand Magic Games one, which I never thought would happen. It's so fucking good. And the winner of it all is Attack of Titan's final season... There aren't many OPs that can encompass the theme of what is currently going on in a series... its fucking eerie, its dark, its uncomfortable... plus the imagery used fits so well as per usual with AoT openings. And without really spoiling anything at that.

    Its been a month since my root canal. I had another appointment yesterday for the rest of the work. They removed the temporary filling, xrayed it to make sure its all good, then did the permanent filling, then shaved/shaped the tooth for the crown, then imprinted my teeth/jaw line with a mold, then put on my temporary crown. Took them an hour. My new permanent crown will be ready in 2 weeks and then I'll finally be done. This root canal situation has been quite the experience. $1200 total after insurance. I have another tooth that might need one if it gets another cavity. If that happens I think I'll have that one pulled instead since its in the far back. Screw all this. x_x

    Sony is going to lose the "digital library wars". If we can't transfer over digital purchases from PS3 to PS4 to PS5 and they expect us to keep buying the same titles over and over if we want to replay them, then they will lose a good chunk of their customer base over time. I prefer my steam account over anything digital Sony is doing. And I agree with Yong about emulation. I'm glad it exists. I like buying games and giving developers their money for their work, but once I have I don't want to have to keep buying it over and over for another digital license because whatever provider I'm using decides to close its shop. I may be wrong but I think Nintendo has been doing it like this for years with the Wii and Wii U shop closures too.
