No spoilers. Not much going on today, so we’ll just discuss various means of engaging with the game.

Butch:

About that Pro/4K set up. You want to do that before you get laid in MEA. Leave the current console for Mr. O.’

Feminina:

That would be good, if we had that much room in the house. Maybe I’ll drag the Pro onto the porch…what’s a persistent smell of mildew and no air flow?

Butch:

Bedroom? Done. You have more than one room, you have more than one place for a TV.

Feminina:

Hm. We only have about two feet of space between the end of the bed and the dresser/mirror. I guess it could go ON the dresser. Who needs a mirror?

Butch:

Two words dude: Wall mount. Can go anywhere. OVER the bed!

Ceiling mount!

I love this plan. What could go wrong?

Feminina:

Nothing! Nothing could ever go wrong!

Although…I don’t know, playing while lying in bed SOUNDS nice and luxurious and decadent, but what about those times when, in order to enhance your character’s ability to dodge or jump, you have to yourself weave from side to side or make specific leaping motions with the controller? All my careful habits are based on being UPRIGHT. I’m not sure I want to risk my character’s life by playing in the wrong position.

Butch:

You….uh….do that?

Not judging. Ok, judging a bit.

Don’t even WANT to know what you do in the flirty scenes.

Feminina:

What, you just sit rigidly stock still during combat? Only your rapidly moving fingers betraying that you’re not, in fact, a lifelike statue? Never the slightest instinctive lean to one side or the other as you drive around corners somewhere?

Uh-huh. Sure. I suppose I won’t judge you for your obvious lack of engagement with the game.

If there’s ever a flirty scene that requires careful handling of the controls to lean just so and put your arm around someone or something, I will probably lean in sympathy, but as long as they’re all dialogue, you can set aside your concerns.

Butch:

Um, I’m not sure that helped.

I’m a vocal gamer. Between swearing a blue streak, I am known to encourage “C’mon, Nomad, you can get up that slope,” cheer “That’s it Ryder! Nice move!”, praise “Nice dress, Triss,” or express frustration “Oh COME ON, Cora, you’re down again?”

That’s engagement.

Feminina:

Fine, fine. You engage by swearing, I engage by leaning from side to side while I drive and ducking when I dodge. IT HELPS THE CHARACTER FOCUS, OK?

And swearing. Lots and lots of swearing. That helps the character focus too. Pretty sure.

Butch:

And praising. And encouraging. And admiring dresses. Not JUST swearing. There’s some positive interaction.

Feminina:

Positive engagement: noted.

But it’s like 98% swearing, though, right? I just want to make sure I get the proportions right.

Butch:

92.

Maybe 93.

Feminina:

Dude, that little?!

Maybe I should dial it back.
