And then there's Kamigami no Asobi, about which I guess I have stuff to say.
We got Hades's two non-romantic endings last night. Not surprisingly, one was the really depressing, "I'm just going to take the curse away from Apollo and go back to the underworld, where I'll live out the rest of my immortal life in misery, devoid of all hope of ever experiencing joy again." But the still where he says goodbye to Yui is so cute. Awwww.
The other ending was probably the happiest of all the Hades endings...sort of? Anyway, it had a lot of maniacal laughter from Miyu Irino, so that was kind of a treat. That kid is so good at playing both ends of the spectrum--"scary evil" and "super happy I love everybody." And he gets to play both in this game! I really can't think of a better voice actor to play the sun god, because his voice is soooo bright and sunny.
So Hades confronted the curse (that was possessing Apollo) and Apollo managed to take control long enough to say that he understands a little about how Hades feels, because he's felt alone for a long time, too. I suspect we'll get more about that when we play through Apollo's storyline, but the gist of it is that people don't care about Apollo as a person, they only love him for his sun god powers. And we were like, "Hey! No fair--that's a spoiler!" That's the problem with love sims. It's impossible to figure out the best order to go in to not get spoiled for the stuff you want to avoid spoilers for.
Anyway, Apollo's all like, "No, seriously, I'll take the curse. You be happy, Uncle Hades!" and Hades was like, "No, I can't let you do that!" so Apollo was like, "Fine, we'll share the curse!" So that's what they did, and they lived happily-ish ever after. And we were like, "...Hm. Yeah, I guess that works." And Apollo was so cute, making the best of the whole bad luck thing. He just refuses to let things get him down. D'awwww.
So...that's all. Today I'm thankful for making good progress on work today, finding the missing mythology monologue, having time to start doing our research, having ice cream, and getting to watch Burn Notice.
