@catalina oh no, by dating sim i mean a game like tokimeki memorial, amagami, kimikiss, etc, games with deep/complex mechanics intended to *simulate* social interaction and dating rather than just games where you read a romantic story and occasionally make simple choices

@catalina i feel like it's somewhat excusable because almost no actual dating sims are available in english

my new, even more insufferable version of getting mad at people misusing the term "roguelike" is getting mad at people using the term "dating sim" to refer to romantic visual novels

what i''m listening to today: "nike just do it" by bladee

youtube.com/watch?v=7WQDckhcF9

i continue to listen almost exclusively to drain gang. i put together a playlist of every drain gang song and it is a surreal listen on shuffle. this track from red light has caught my ear today and i can't stop thinking about it

@dankwraith though i, a person who is not any sort of doctor, know exactly what benzos do to a mf because i have heard a post malone song at the grocery store

@dankwraith although slightly in his defense as someone who has seen many psychologists and psychiatrists: psychologists who don't know shit about drugs are astonishingly common

@dankwraith its almost like hes kind of a moron who doesnt know anything about anything

just woke up from a dream in which, due to covid precautions, you had to take your shoes off to get on the subway

@modernmodron your work is absolutely fantastic. even though it didn't work out, everything you did on anathema was incredible and you really made the project what it was. i really, really want to work with you again some day on something that actually ships.

what i'm listening to today: "PXE" by ecco2k

youtube.com/watch?v=3KTJ01nT_P

ecco2k's music continues to blow me away. this ep came out last year and it is some mind bending stuff. i read an interview with ecco where he described this EP as sounding like "throwing a car battery in a washing machine" and that is pretty accurate

kinda morbid 

@dankwraith now you can be the guy who writes in a too long overshare-y message about a personal tragedy while someone plays crash bandicoot

@dankwraith eventually you'll strike that damned pitcher dead where he stands
