Crap. I lost my DLC code for Pirana Plant in SSB:U. I redeemed my points, but forgot all about the code I'd received by mail. Mail went to my junk box and has already been deleted.  Sad

So, I just finished the prologue on Xenoblade Chronicles. So I'm like halfway done with the game, right?

Is it weird that I prefer eating chili cold? And with a little sugar on top instead of crackers or cheese?

Also I have the music of Pengo stuck in my head for the last two days.

Yes that's weird. All of that is weird. Not judging you, just assuring you that it is in fact weird.

Saw it. Its ok. The worst of the three. Starts off pretty good, last act is kind of a mess. Another incredible performance by mcavoy

I might go see Glass. I finally got around to watching Split today. I had purchased it on Blu-Ray quite awhile ago. Pretty good movie.

I overheard a very interesting conversation at GameStop yesterday. A manager and employee were talking and according to the manager in a few months they are going to make a very radical change to their pre-order policy. Customers who do not pick up their pre-order after 30 days will lose their deposit. it's not going to be applied to store credit or anything else. They are just going to take the money.

Both of them did not expect the policy to last long, as a lot of people apparently use the pre-order system more like layaway and gradually pay off their pre-orders. For those types of people, they would just lose their money. Anyway, there's your breaking news for today.

GameStop seems to really struggling these days and I doubt this new pre-order policy will do them any more favours.

If by "unlocking the mechs" you mean, walk by them then yes. Yes I did.

At the end of the day, while the game is a little slow and open I actually don't mind that stuff. However I do have two giant problems that aren't going to go away no matter how much more engaging the story gets:

1. I dislike the battle system. I didn't like it in Xenoblade Chronicles and I don't like it now. For whatever reason it just doesn't click with me and no matter how strategically I use them I feel like I'm just randomly pushing buttons.

2. I can't read a fucking thing. It's not an exagerration when I say I actually have to stand up and walk to my TV screen to be able to read the request/mission information. Seriously, that is such a poor design decision that someone should be forced to chew and swallow shards of glass.

I didn't warm up to it either and I did unlock the mechs. There's too much obligatory exploring and side questing and too little main story stuff.

The combat is also the poorest of the 3 XC games in my opinion.
