Mitch —

The Queue: Same

Danganronpa sure is something else.

The game is technically in the “visual novel” genre, but it has so many unexpected, off-the-wall elements that “visual novel” doesn’t seem to do it justice. It feels like Phoenix Wright crossed with Three Houses crossed with… well, a murderous bear (and then some).

I’ve been watching the Game Grumps playthrough of it, and while some moments make it hard to fully recommend — an entire class trial revolves around some very problematic takes on gender identity, for instance — it’s still been quite the trip. I’m going in completely blind, so I have no idea how it’ll all end, but it continually seems to surprise me. I’m curious if any of y’all have played it and, if so, what you thought.

But enough about that. This is The Queue.

The Queue: Too. Many. Games.

Man, there are just too many games to play right now, and it’s not slowing down. I’ve been trucking through New Pokémon Snap lately, but Resident Evil: Tall Lady comes out tonight/tomorrow, and then the Mass Effect remaster comes out next week. How’s a person supposed to beat all these games when you only have a week between them?!

…At least the one that’s going to take me the longest comes out last.

Anyhow, this is The Queue, where we Queue things.

The Queue: Bok

It has been one crazy week after another here, but A Thing™ I’ve been helping work on for a while finally made its way out into the world last night, and it’s been cool watching people react to and devour said thing. (Sadly, I still have to keep details brief for now.)

Anyhow, I’ve also been playing FFXIV a bit again, and, hoo boy, is that game a trip. I appreciate Square’s willingness to let it just be weird sometimes.

But enough about that. Let’s Queue.

The Queue: Somehow, halfway through April

Anyone else feel like the month just started? This has admittedly been a bit of a tumultuous month for me, but even still, it’s hard to believe we’re halfway through it already.

But Jovan’s the expert on time, so I’ll leave that discussion for another day.

Right now, we Queue.

The Queue: It is I, Jovan!

Hello, Queuepeople! Today, your Queue will be written by Jovan, AKA me. Mitch had to go do things. Don’t worry, though, he left you in my very capable appendages normal human hands.

Okay, enough about me. It’s time to Q&A!

The Queue: i can be your angle… or yuor devil

Y’know, the Overwatch MVP skins have been hit or miss for me — even before any particular controversies arose — but this Echo skin feels leagues above the rest. I hate how much I want it. (Also, yes, the joke was super easy to make and yes, it has already been made by others. I still went for it.)

Anyhow, it’s Thursday, which means it’s time for The Queue!

Let’s Queue it.
