Ah, GU Fighter... that was a classic.

And the boss in Story Mode? ;P

After swapping to Chrome (because Firefox was getting laggy at start up), I wasn't able to log in. I had to reset my password. :p

My life is... not fun right now. Well, I'm getting better but...

On the 29th of July, I got pneumonia. At first, we thought it was a cold, so I waited it out, but I kept having problems sleeping at night. I would wake up about 3-4 times a night, coughing horribly, drink some water and try to sleep. Finally, I had enough, and I got some antibiotics. Those ended on the 8th, I believe. And then, I still had upper right chest pain and heavy coughing. I went back to the doctor, got a chest x-ray, and it seems that the pneumonia was still there.

So, I got more antibiotics--10 days this time--and tomorrow is my last. I feel MUCH better now. My grandparents are coming tomorrow as well (or maybe Saturday. Please, Saturday). However, I have hayfever, and pneumonia has a slow recovery process. Because of these things, I'm restricted from yardwork for at least a week. I'm really happy about this as I won't be forced into the yard. Yay!

I still have questions about job interviews and meetings as I STILL don't have a source of income. I'm close to possibly getting SSI and I have a possible job interview that I can go to next week. I just don't know if I'm still contagious, so I'm still waiting on my doctor's response for that.

I'm really glad I'm restricted from yardwork because I've been through almost three weeks of heck and I don't want to interact with my grandfather much.

lol Rowan.

Guardian, I would buy your book, but I have no source of income. Hopefully, I'll push myself to get a Short Story finished and publish it.

GW: Here's my thoughts on it. If you want a Switch, get one (when you have the money and interest). By buying a Switch, you're not supporting this silly and shady procedure Nintendo is doing with the NES and SNES Classic. By NOT buying a SNES Classic, you're basically speaking with your wallet to Nintendo: "I don't appreciate this lack of supply and then cut off."

I never got an NES Classic and I'm not getting a SNES Classic (and there's a possibility of an N64 Classic coming, too) because I don't want to support those shady practices.

The Switch, however, was released at low supply because Nintendo didn't know how well it would sell. When they released the Wii U, they pumped out a lot of the systems, and now, they are probably having a ton left over since it didn't sell well. With the Switch, they were being more cautious.

They underestimated the appeal of the Switch. And I read an article where Nintendo apologized and they are frantically trying to get the components to make enough Switches to meet the demand.

As for third party titles, there are plenty, and more coming (besides Skyrim). When Skyrim for the Switch was announced, hoo boy, I checked the Skyrim subbreddit and EVERY poster now there wanted a Switch, despite how much they have played Skyrim. There's even rumors of mod support for Switch Skyrim. I was expecting high negativity toward it.

There's also Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, Binding of Issac Rebirth, Rayman Legends (coming?), Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (coming), Mario + Rabbids (upcoming) is technically third party since Ubisoft is a part of it, and more. Many third party companies, especially Ubisoft, want to make games for the Switch. Some of these games are enhanced ports (Shantae, Rayman), but others are not.

Now, if you want third party exclusives... I don't see that happening, and I also never saw the appeal of third-party exclusives. For example, Bloodborne, considered a spiritual successor to CastleVania, and like the Souls series, is exclusive to the PS4. I would love to get it for a different console as I don't have the money for a PS4. I'll get one eventually, but third party exclusives are silly IMO as they force (well, if the person really wants it) to buy that specific console.

There is also a Symphony of the Night inspired Metroidvania-like game, involving vampires, coming to the Switch. I forgot what it was called, but it looked awesome.

By Christmas, the Switch is going to have a huge library of first, and third party games. Indies and AAAs.

I understand being frugal, too. I currently have NO source of income, so I can't really buy anything but food... and yet I'm in debt, too (massive) on a closed card. I'm working hard to get into temp agencies, and get SSI, but so far, nothing yet. I'm sure something will peak your interest at some point for the Switch, but I totally understand your frustration at Nintendo with the NES and SNES Classic consoles. Those are money-grabs.

Ah! My friend, the story is actually quite well-done. In the June 2016 e3 of Nintendo's BoTW showings, they told us the story would be mostly told in the environment of the world (like the destroyed Temple of Time, for example). However, once you piece together all the memories, find the journals in Hyrule Castle, you'll see that Breath of the Wild has a very well made story. Its feeling of 'weakness' is only because they are split apart. Though, I DO think the Rito Race Arc needed major fleshing out: Teba had so much potential to be an awesome character.

Speaking of characters, I dunno how far you've gotten, but the characters are quite memorable, IMO, anyway. Sidon, Kass, Paya, Mipha, Riju--those are probably some of most popular characters in the fanbase. Sometimes, I get the feeling people love Sidon more than Link, ha! In any case, Zelda and Link were not the only memorable characters to me, and I hardly feel like these characters 'blink' out of existence. I feel like you haven't beaten the game yet...

The dungeons, I agree, are not as a great. However, this is a Zelda game that's breaking the conventions, so expecting traditional dungeons that railroad the story is a misleading one. The dungeons are too short, and not dangerous enough; however, their unique design, the ability to control the dungeons, and the fact you have to fight the dungeons first to get in them is all awesome. IMO, they just needed to be longer and have many many more enemies to fight. The bosses were also a little of a letdown (they should scale according to how many dungeons you've beaten in the past, but they don't).

Hyrule Castle, though, is a very satisfying dungeon, and you can raid it as many times as you like for fun, challenge, goodies... there's also a special item in that castle. Won't tell you where, though. ;)

All-in-all, Breath of the Wild is a solid entry in the Zelda Series, and Nintendo has stated it is the new standard for Zelda. Since they made the entire engine, world (the world itself being bigger than Skyrim!), etc. from scratch, I can see them making much better dungeons and a more cohesive story in the next installment.

Also... speaking of Skyrim...

Cynthia here has done the master Alteration Ritual and the Master Destruction Ritual; I have the Apocalypse mod (magic mod) and Better Magic mod, so there are better spells for the master level, and spells are stronger.

The kimono she's wearing is a recolor from another mod and since I'm using it as a personal mod and not publishing it, I won't get in trouble (I did endorse the original mod). I can't model worth beans.

I'm also using the Enhanced Character Edit, Eyes of Beauty, and a hair mod to make her look beautiful and sexy. She has been loads of fun to play.

No Chrono Trigger, either.

Though, there is the DS version (and FF4 has a DS version and a ton of enhanced ports), which is why some people think they left it out.

But Star Fox 2, though.

I have a Switch and BoTW. I have three users (one for each playthrough). I have 185 hours on the first playthrough (100%, save the koroks), 70 on the second, and the third was just barely started.
