The Professional Gamer - October 12, 2019

Hi folks! Denver saw its first snow of the season yesterday, and I took advantage of a generous telework policy to avoid having to deal with it. I also watched the last episode of Astra: Lost in Space, played some Guild Wars 2 and Link’s Awakening, and I went to the Great American Beer Festival last weekend. I can’t do a whole lot of review of the GABF, because I was really just trying to have fun and didn’t take notes about anything. But I can talk a bit about some other things.

Man, this was really a week where I didn’t get to do much. For reasons unknown to me, the last episode of Astra: Lost in Space wasn’t posted. I finished this season of Dan Machi (Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls at the Dungeon) and, honestly not impressed. I never thought it was really a great series or anything, but it was at least fun with some interesting battles and effects and things. But honestly, the plot, characters, and worldbuilding all left things to be desired. I did watch another episode of Cop Craft. It’s still a lot of fun, but I think I can see the end of the budget. The series is almost over, and I think the conclusion is going to be good. It feels like it from the distance of a few episodes at least.

Wow, I’ve had a busy but very fun week here. After all, last weekend was Nan Desu Kan, so I have a huge pile of audio to work through and post to the post feed. Speaking of podcasts, I posted two new episodes already this week. Did you catch them? Other than that, my Tuesday night dinner group has decided to start watching old anime. For each of us, there are several shows that we didn’t watch when they originally aired. In each case, at least one other person in the group would insist that the show was essential. And, I’ve been making some effort to get back into seasonal anime. So, let’s talk about some anime, eh?

Hey everyone, I'm at Fort Collins Comic Con this weekend, helping Crystal sell some art. I’ve been a bit busy watching the table, talking with attendees, and hanging out with other artists after hours. So, my post this week is going to be a little bit shorter than usual. FCCC has been lots of fun. Pretty relaxed, but getting to see some people who have bought stuff from Crystal before and are purposefully coming to see what new things she has to offer. And, of course, lots of folks who are excited about D&D and who love to swap stories.
