Is the weather like really all over the place for everyone else too? Because for me its alternating between mid-winter and mid-spring almost daily.
Yeah, it's been doing the same thing here. It's been going back and forth from the kind of weather we get in December to the kind we get in April or May. It's super weird.

this thread is inferior to the general cat thread
This is just the French version of that thread.

man I FRIGGIN' LOVE Dune. Yeah, the first part of it is kinda meh, with all the politic building that needed to take place, but yeah, it'll definitely pick up on the pace, with the last bit moving at a nice brisk pace (tryin' not to say too much, y'know). I couldn't get into the next book myself, though. Dune Messiah, I think it's called?

I think it's been long enough for me to double post now.

I've been reading Dune, and I just got to the halfway point. Man, this book is LONG (~900 pages). It really took a while for the plot to start moving, but things are finally actually happening. Paul is kind of a Mary Sue so far, but I've heard that he gets better later on, so I'll have to see how that turns out. I have to say, though, the worldbuilding is fantastic. You can really tell the importance of water on Arrakis just by how it permeates through their whole culture. It looks like the Fremen are going to have a lot more focus on them now, so I'm looking forward to seeing what the author did with them.
Also, I can't decide if Duncan Idaho is the worst or greatest name I've ever heard.

I've been making an effort to watch through every episode of Best of the Worst while working on my assignments, and actually watching it all in order makes it a lot easier to pick up on all the running gags and callbacks.

It's so dense, every single episode has so many things going on

I've moved on to Ys Origin, and its so good so far. The combat just feels great, I don't know how else to describe it. It might even be smoother than Oath in Felghana, although that might not be fair to say since its been a few months since I've last played it, and even then I was stuck using a keyboard. I've also only played as Yunica thus far, so I don't know how well the other characters play. The bosses I've fought so far have also been fairly intuitive, which is pretty nice, and it seems less grindy than previous Ys games.

I also like the way the story is laid out, and it's neat seeing all of the callbacks to Ys I and II (And maybe beyond, since it seems one of the characters is named Kishgal...). It seems like the destiny of the Gemma family is to get a leg injury in Darm Tower, wait around to be rescued in a hidden room, and then give someone an item that they need to proceed. What a strange fate...

Only issues I have are some pretty noticeable frame rate drops when dealing with several enemies at once (although that's my computer's fault, not the game's), and the fact that there was an underwater level complete with spikes and instant death oxygen metre (which was thankfully not too bad and over pretty quickly).
