    OOC commentary:
    Hello all. This has been a long story, both in wordcount and in the time it has taken to reach this point. If I recall correctly, I came up with the concept for this story late in 2016, around the time I was finishing From Out Of A Dream. I played a videogame I highly recommend - "Hard West", by Playway. I also began watching a great many Western movies, one after another. And I was also deeply enthralled with the concept of Exalted. These things merged together into a peculiar fusion, fueled by boredom, intermittent bursts of inspiration, and your input.

    I agree 100%.


    If I may paraphrase:
    "I've only seen 10 previous movies, and I was able to follow the 11th one just fine."

    "I think you only really need to have seen 4 previous movies to get the 5th one."

    There's a difference in scale, but you're still describing the same problem: Avengers: Endgame is the culmination of a lengthy series of films, and requires familiarity with those films to fully enjoy. This is how continuity lockout happens.

    Maybe that wouldn't be so much of a problem except you can't just stream...

    I thought it was a fun movie, and it even had a few moments I thought were really moving. That said, I feel ambivalent about how invested you have to be in the MCU to really *get* this movie.

    I don't normally see movies in theaters - I prefer to watch them at home, so I can eat healthy snacks that aren't overpriced and snark at the movie without bothering anyone. But I thought it would be better to see Endgame still in theaters, partly for the full audiovisual experience and partly so I wouldn't have to dodge spoilers for the next several months until it came out for streaming services...

    I've played a few hours of Enter The Gungeon. It's a twin-stick, roguelike, bullet-hell shooter - combining three genres I'm not a fan of. But I got it as a gift, and it's highly rated, so I thought I should give it a try.

    As I suspected I would, I stink at it. Can barely get to the 2nd level after many, many tries. But at the same time, mechanically and stylistically, it's very impressive. I think this will join the collection of games that I will finish, albeit with a lot of hacking to offset my inability to git gud.
