dang its been awhile, this was the first time i typed in "br" into the search bar and autofill didn't do the rest so that's gotta be a record for me

I have been playing mostly fighting games and Age of Empires games, one of which I play against other people. I have never been confident enough in my RTS skills to play anyone other than friends in AoE, despite it being a series I love. The fourth one is coming out soon, and with my brother moving back to New Jersey I will have access to an Xbox One again and thus will have access to AoEIV. I hope its good. My friend has been playing a lot of Strive and making real headway in it, which has put me in a tough spot. I don't really like Strive, and I don't like having the role reversed (normally I am the one winning the vast majority of our fighting game sojourns) but I don't want to quit on him because he is into the game and dropping out for any reason seems like an act of cowardice, even if the game doesn't really speak to me. Here's hoping KoF XV will swing things around. I have been playing a ton of Virtua Fighter V which is the surest sign of any that I am getting old. I'm decent at it. Hovering around level 23-24 with Goh and a win percentage in the high 50s/low 60s. I have a sort of settled technique and approach to most fights, but every now and then while messing around a new move sort of opens up to me. I don't think I will ever truly be amazing, but its fascinating to approach and I get less mad when I lose at this than other games. My above mentioned friend and I have talked about going to EVO next year. Maybe I will lose in the first round of an off main stage VF tournament just to say I did it.

I watched the Rebuild movies finally and somehow avoided knowing anything about them going into them. I enjoyed them all quite a bit and the fourth movie is possibly the best Evangelion has ever been. That's probably my anime watching covered for a year or so.

24 Hour Horrorthon is coming back in the first weekend of November. Last year it didn't happen obviously, but I knew that even before the pandemic. I truly missed it, and now I am terrified of it getting cancelled again. Its been hard to navigate the post-vaccine pandemic honestly. I was about as okay with the stay at home rules as anyone could be, but now that things were supposed to be better before the delta variant and everything, I feel confused. I still wear a mask and mostly avoid things, but everywhere and everyone else it my life seems to have just moved on and don't care. I've gone to a few wrestling shows and nothings happened, but the balance of "I should still not be doing anything" and "I have wasted a year of my life and will relax now that I am vaccinated" are constantly causing friction against one another.

In other news, I have become obsessed with the Legion of Super-Heroes. I needed some sort of reading project at the start of the year and bought some digital collections. It is well known that thanks to a ton of characters and history and three (four now?) fucking reboots have made it completely impenetrable to a casual fan, so I just started at the beginning. Its so dense and filled with weird scifi stuff. I've been collecting the actual issues which I don't normally do. It feels like the last frontier of a superhero universe; I don't know if I will ever feel that amazing feeling of jumping into something with so much history and lore and trying to figure it out. Its thrilling.

I've been thinking about getting a fish tank. I need a new hobby and have exhausted most of the available nerd stuff (comics, games, wrestling, DND, its all done.) My friend decided to get into drum machines and the like but I don't have much musical talent so I've half convinced myself to try keeping a bunch of organisms alive instead.
