I don't wanna work

I have been watching KoF 15 all afternoon, getting more and more angry that I cannot play the game online. There is little hope of me actually getting good at the game, it is far to execution heavy for my feeble hands, but it is so different than any of the other fighting games that I am bad at that I want to add it to the list. I want to know just enough KoF to be bad at it. Is that so much to ask?

Not being able to play against people, online for me, is going to keep that from happening. Supposedly there is a patch coming soon but I do not trust SNK. They never fixed the last one, why should I believe that they are going to fix this one?

Of course Netherrealm just released a beta of MK XL on the PC, something that no one saw coming, so anything can happen.

...

Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens is, so far, more fun than the movie.

Sick burns.

It is just another lego game, meaning that it plays just as well as all of the older games, but there has been a tiny adjustment to the collectibles that may force me to play this one longer than I had planned. In previous games gold bricks unlocked things that I did not care about. More characters, minifigures, junk that had no impact on the way I played the game. This time around they unlock whole levels, levels not based on the movie.

Bastards. I want to see these levels. While the game makes the gold bricks more desireable it does nothing to change how annoying they are to retrieve, especially when many of them are locked behind force skills that only Luke has, and of course I will not unlock Luke until the very end of the game, thereby forcing me to do something I hate: engage in post game content.

Lego games are like little vacation for me. The Force Awakens is threatening to bleed into the work that I do on everything else I play and I am not sure how I feel about that.
