Akademician and SiliconNooB survey a highly litigious collection of stories in the weekly news, reveal astonshing records set by Final Fantasy VII Remake and the Nintendo Switch, and prepare for the forthcoming site-wide playthrough of Xenoblade Chronicles.


  1. I think you might be secretly living in Norway Caspius xD Every time you describe the weather that’s our weather here.

    Also a better queation is: Why choose? Both Animal Crossing AND Xenoblade Chronicles 2! ;)

    Also I completely agree. I call it my single player mmo. It was exactly what I wanted it to be.

  2. @Winter: I really owe a debt of gratitude to Monolith Soft, because Xenoblade cured me of ever needing to play an MMO again. Whenever I begin to miss MMOs, I play XBC, which is perfect for that!

  3. True actually the perfect cure. I guess I owe a debt of gratitude to you then. You cured me of WoW xD You spoke of it once and after that when we sat down three nights a week I started seeing my life in reverse and getting stressed at how much timw we spent on it lol. But yeah once I started being able to choose what to do every evening I could not go back to raiding. Moral of the story is if the evenings you’re not doing your hobby is starting to seem like “free nights” and you start trying to find reasons why you can’t – it’s time to quit.

  4. Absolutely. When a hobby becomes a chore or a job, it is no longer a hobby at all!
