    The gacha system is total BS. I don't find it particularly disadvantageous to use 4* characters to progress the game, but the barrier to fully utilizing 5* characters is absurd. Diluc isn't even worth using until he's at max constellation, and he is one of the most sought after DPS chars in the game. In that regard, Genshin Impact really does have the worst gacha. I've never encountered a game that expects you to roll multiple high-tier characters to make them usable (I couldn't even imagine the outrage). I don't think the resin system is as restrictive as the post makes it out to be, but it could definitely be better. I'm able to get more resources than I need just from exploring, and I never felt like I ran into a progression wall (which already puts it ahead of Dragalia Lost), but man do I hate running out of mora all the time. It ends up taking away from the time and resin I could be spending on acquiring artifacts with better set bonuses. Mihoyo's censorship of critical feedback is deplorable. No matter what people may think of a product, their feedback should never be tossed aside and ignored. China might not have that many qualms with censorship in general (at least going by what a Chinese friend in college told me), but for the international community blocking feedback is only going to make matters worse when people look outside the company-owned platforms for criticisms. Normalizing shitty gameplay aspects is never productive. You might think that Genshin Impact is great by modern standards of f2p gacha systems, but that is a really low bar for the mainstream gaming audience. I've played enough gacha games to understand how relatively good Genshin Impact is in terms of enjoyability, but I've been divorced from them long enough to understand people's frustration with it. Bad mechanics should always be called out. If a game wants to market itself to a mainstream audience, it needs to hold itself to a higher standard. It's like marketing KFC-tier food with a few fancy doodads to people who are accustomed to 4* restaurants. No matter how well you try to dress it up, crap will always be crap. The feedback on artifacts is kinda meh. Finding favorable main stats are not that hard to come by; heck, it's not even that hard to find good set bonuses with favorable stats. And as for the substats? Even good rolls will barely contribute to your overall effectiveness. Finding a good artifact with the best substats is essentially min-maxing to an extreme. Yeah, it might be worth doing eventually, but only when you've already maxed out everything else. I strongly disagree with the argument that 99% of the game is locked behind resin. It's not the kind of game where your progress is completely halted when running out of stamina. I do think the resin system should be done away with entirely, but there are better arguments for that. There's still a lot of content to enjoy while waiting for resin to refill. I also think the chests argument is a little eh. I don't mind frequent chests with half-decent rewards, and I kinda like the way they're implemented in the game. The process of finding chests is, itself, fairly enjoyable, and the loot is never useless (unlike many other RPGs I've played). That said, I think it'd be nice if the precious/luxurious chests had better rewards considering how rare they are. The criticisms are fair, tbh. There are some points I do disagree with, but there are plenty of ways the game can improve.

    It is done. The translation is officially 100% done Progress will now move on to post-translation, where there's TLC and QC to be done. I'm hoping to finish everything else and release the patch by end 2020 (unlikely, but hey, you never know). If not, then at least get the TLC done by end 2020. So do refer to the TLC tab of the sheet for progress on the TLC. I will save my translation remarks for after the patch is fully released. For now though, rejoice that the translation is done! Yay!

    Ya know, this is actually not too bad. I guess I've just played a few too many gacha games and maybe had one too many discussions about said games that it's hard for me to know what to expect when someone says something about "optional spending." Because yeah, spending money is technically optional, but most of the games I've played with optional spending almost always come with a heavy-handed approach to force money out of your wallet. But you're right on this one. In some ways it reminds me of Another Eden in that it plays a lot like a real game and only tacks the gacha elements on for people who want to buy stuff. I suppose I was also turned off by this initially because of the language used in some of the reviews I've seen. I've heard the same things being said about so many other games that turned out boring after just one week. And see, even when they do get boring, I still find myself easily addicted to them too, so it's hard for me to trust games like these. Thankfully it's turning out to be nothing like what I was expecting it to be. It's fun, it's engaging, the art is gorgeous, and the exploration bits are quite nice. I'm glad I didn't shy away from this one.

    Umineko Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Well, I think most Ryukishi's VNs need to be read at least twice if you want to properly understand them. I personally read Higurashi after I already watched the anime adaptations, and I was really impressed with how well-written and filled with small unnoticeable details it was. To be honest, I think that it probably made me enjoy it even more than if I read it blind. The problem with Umineko is that it's just way too long. I've been wanting to reread it for years, but, honestly, I just don't want to spend 100 more hours on a story that I already know, no matter how much I love that story. Even if it probably deserves it, but, well...

    Going off the trailer, this almost looks like something I would like, but I'm skeptical. Between the MTX and the daily system, this seems like a game that is going to either be a colossal grind for resources and possibly timegated to oblivion. In games like these there's almost always a gameplay incentive to spend money, and I'm not sure I need something like that right now. That said, the gameplay does seem unique and interesting, and I am a sucker for exploration mechanics. And even though I find most gacha games deplorable, I do enjoy the gacha system itself. Idk, I'm kinda on the ropes on this one.
